MonaVie Community Commerce℠: A Powerful Business Opportunity

When you think about it, the most powerful marketing that exists is when someone you know and trust recommends a good product to you. You’re much more likely to act on a personal recommendation than just about anything else.

This isn’t a new phenomenon. Long before the advent of slick radio, TV or Internet advertising campaigns that bombard us daily to buy certain products or services, word of mouth—the original social network—was king. And the place from which you gleaned your most important recommendations was from people you knew in the communities where you lived, worked and played.

It’s no different in 2011 except that the definition of community has expanded. Today, we still belong to traditional communities, such as neighborhoods and schools, but because of rapid technological advances, communities also include social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. Regardless of the community, however, there’s a good chance that business or commerce will occur as a result of relationships you have developed in the various communities to which you belong.

At MonaVie, we’ve developed a business model that we call Community Commerce to capitalize on this age-old reality by parlaying personal marketing into a business opportunity that makes sense. As long as we are on this earth, we will consume products. MonaVie Community Commerce offers you the opportunity to consume quality products and to make residual income as you recommend these same products to others with whom you interact within the communities where you belong.

The power of Community Commerce is seen in the phenomenal success that MonaVie has experienced in the seven years since it was founded. Based on relationship building that has occurred through all kinds of communities where MonaVie distributors interact, our company was recognized as the No. 1 fastest growing company in the Inc. 500 Food & Beverage category in only our fifth year of existence.

What’s behind the phenomenal success of MonaVie Community Commerce? MonaVie is committed to producing premium nutritional products made from the rarest ingredients on earth that offer solutions to the most pressing health issues facing people today. Couple these amazing products with an extremely innovative and dynamic compensation plan, and it’s no wonder MonaVie is creating health, wealth and happiness all over the world. With 10 ways to earn income and 50% of the sales volume paid out in distributor commissions, MonaVie Community Commerce is a powerfully rewarding and sustainable business opportunity.

The beauty of the MonaVie Community Commerce business model is that it works wherever you are and whatever your circumstances. Successful MonaVie distributors are professionals, such as doctors, lawyers and educators. They’re stay-at-home moms who are supplementing or replacing lost income. Some have never had the opportunity for an education, but have the smarts and tenacity to create a successful business. Others live in Third World countries and are finding that MonaVie is the best microenterprise opportunity they’ve ever seen.

MonaVie Community Commerce creates the kind of opportunity and success that 1 billion people around the world who are unemployed or underemployed are currently seeking. When you purchase and consume MonaVie products, your health and well-being benefit. When you take it a step further and recommend these same products to others in the communities to which you belong, you can create a residual income that has the potential to outlive you.

I encourage you to please share this message of hope with your friends and associates.

Sincerely,


Jeff Cohen
Chief Marketing Officer

MonaVie and The Perfect Storm

MonaVie Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Cohen spoke to The New York Times article on declining incomes and escalation in unemployment in his post, MonaVie Provides Answer to Economic Downturn. In this piece he referenced the combination of MonaVie’s exceptional products and innovative and dynamic compensation plan as the right opportunity at the right time.

Renowned economist and MonaVie Imagine convention keynote, Paul Zane Pilzer, would agree, stating further that wellness and direct selling create a perfect storm of unprecedented economic opportunity. A statement he expands on in his article, appropriately titled, The Perfect Storm of Opportunity.

In said article he reports that between 2000 and 2005, wellness grew from a $200 billion industry to $400 billion and on it's way to being the next trillion dollar industry has had a dramatic impact on the democratization of American wealth, simply by linking the need for wellness products with the network marketing, home-based entrepreneurial business model.

The fortunes to be made today and in the years ahead will be made by those who are involved in teaching people about new products and services that they either didn’t know existed or didn’t know were now affordable. That is, intellectual distribution, as opposed to physical distribution, is where the greatest fortunes are being made today and will continue to be made...

MonaVie is certainly providing all of the above by offering premium products, entrepreneurial opportunity (minus the overhead), in a highly scalable business model, that addresses unemployment, as well as underemployment with this thing called residual income.

The result? A steady increase in ordinary working-class people who are making their way into the new millionaire’s club, as well as an overall increase in individual income and net worth.

In addition, MonaVie is having a positive impact on quality of life because it’s no longer an option to simply make an income if you must sacrifice lifestyle, family and well being in order to do so.

In summary, we’re getting healthy, enjoying a balance of work and family and creating unprecedented wealth while at it. It’s hard to feel bad about any of that...am I right or am I right?

To Retire, or Not to Retire; That is the Question. Is Community Commerce the Answer?

 

Check out the above snapshot USA Today posted recently. Now, let’s discuss.

Why not look for an alternative; a way to build a highly residual income working in the after hours until you can drop the 9-5 gig for greener pastures and retirement haven?

Enter community commerce, aka direct selling, aka the only scalable business model to address the nearly 1 billion people globally that are unemployed or underemployed.

MonaVie is leading the way, by heralding the community commerce mission, providing opportunities for residual income, as well as the tools to grow your network.

Call Me! Telephone Time and Other (Similar) Business Building Tools

“No matter how old you are, no matter how tough you think you are, if a toddler hands you their ringing toy phone…You answer it.”

The telephone.

Invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell, the telephone is recognized as the most valuable patent in history. I doubt there are many who wonder why…

Telephones have come a long way in the last 135 years, certainly in the last 10 years, have they not? Gone are the days when children “played” telephone with a couple soup cans and cast away piece of yarn. Have I just dated myself?

Now even “land lines” and “pay phones” are fast becoming a blast from the past.

Yep, from babies to baby boomers and beyond, nearly everyone has a telephone (aka cell phone, mobile device) or access to a telephone and certainly everyone knows how to use a telephone.

So, how do you use your phone in your business?

Here are couple questions and/or references to get this conversation started:

What type of phone do you use? From a smart phone (iPhone and/or Android) to a simple push-tone with voice mail capability to an old school rotatory phone – how important is telephone technology to your business building efforts?

How much do you use your phone in your business building efforts? Do you call to confirm attendance at your next home tasting? How much time do you spend talking product orders and other transactional topics with MonaVie Distributor Support?

What about conference calls with your upline?

Are you an avid texter?

What about Skype? This is a great way to make Internet calls for free – a popular option for our international audiences and globe trotters in general…oh and poor college students who do not want to use their valued texting minutes on telephoning Mom and Dad back at the ranch (ask me how I know).

Did you know you can now Skype from your home phone, as well as, your smart phone? You can also video call using this service.

Oh, oh oh! I can’t believe I nearly forgot my newest discovery – you can actually accept credit card payments with your mobile phone. Check out the Square at squareup.com for more details.

Want to save some time on the telephone? Here’s one idea:

Are you aware of MonaVie’s GetSatisfaction team; a new and growing online community monitored and administrated by a host of MonaVie Distributor Support representatives with the sole purpose of answering questions. Distributors can ask questions, share ideas, report problems and give praise all in one social media savvy forum.

Check it out: MonaVie GetSatisfaction.

What other ways do you use your telephone to keep you connected, grow your business and make life a little less crazy? Leave me a comment below – I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Weekly Round Up: September 23, 2011

It’s been a busy week for us here at MonaVie corporate! Here’s a round up of this week’s activity.

You first heard about it on the September 2011 North America Organizational Call with Jeff Graham, and as promised, MonaVie was featured in USA Today. Not only that, but MonaVie offered free product to new contacts wishing to know more about the MonaVie opportunity.

Well, no one could have predicted the numbers of people who would jump at the chance for free product and an opportunity to learn more about MonaVie, in that our initial supplies sold out in less than 24 hours and with over 20,000 requests received in less than 48 hours, we decided we had no choice than to allow new contacts to pre-register for our next promotion.

In case you’re wondering, MonaVie Essential was the most requested product, followed by Active, (M)mun and Pulse.

If you didn’t get the paper, MonaVie’s marketing team created a download to print and share of the full USA Today insert.

Not to distract you from the phenomenon that has been the USA Today insert, MonaVie announced a major discount to MonaVie RVL product with a dollar-for-PV value on 3-Day Sample Packs and Single Serve Pakcets.

Read all about it here.

Oh, and to finish off the action-packed week, MonaVie unveiled the “1 Billion” Ad, featured in USA Today, which states that “there are nearly 1 in 6 Americans living in poverty, according to the new Census Bureau report.”

The ad comes on the heels of a CBS News report, aired September 22, 2011, on recession and the impact on young adults, who according to the report, are at risk of living in poverty more than others.

MonaVie further states, “Community commerce (or direct selling) is the only business model truly scalable enough to address the issues at hand.”

What do you think? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

Read more about the USA Today “1 Billion” ad and the CBS News Report on recession here.

As for the social media specific sphere, are you seeing all the new changes Facebook unveiled this week? Did you notice? Is Google+ gaining on the networking superstar site? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Until next week!

MonaVie "E" and the Urban Prep Creed

MonaVie: A Path to a More Meaningful Life, where the "E" in MonaVie stands for "exceptional." This is not a new notion - to be exceptional, and certainly we've mentioned it time and time again. But what does it mean? What does it mean to be exceptional? It is my thought that we are all exceptional by nature, and for this reason alone, it is our responsibility to nurture said virtue.

The following was sent to Founder and CEO Dallin Larsen by Black Diamond Executive Angel Matos who said, "There is always hope and possibility. Urban Prep in Chicago is a great example of what can be done. Their creed says it all."

The Urban Prep Creed

We believe.
We are the young men of Urban Prep.
We are college bound.
We are exceptional-not because we say it, but because we work hard at it.
We will not falter in the face of any obstacle placed before us.
We are dedicated, committed and focused.
We never succumb to mediocrity, uncertainty or fear.
We never fail because we never give up.
We make no excuses.
We choose to live honestly, nonviolently and honorably.
We respect ourselves and, in doing so, respect all people.
We have a future for which we are accountable.
We have a responsibility to our families, community and world.
We are our brothers' keepers.
We believe in ourselves.
We believe in each other.
We believe in Urban Prep.
WE BELIEVE.

via

Urban Prep Academies were founded in 2002 with the intent to provide comprehensive, high-quality college preparatory education to young men that results in graduates succeeding in college and the most simple of motto - "We Believe" which is a constant reminder that Urban Prep students will not fall into the trap of negative stereotypes and low expectations.

How are you exceptional and what does the word mean to you? Be specific.

Be exceptional.
