Corporate Consulting Services
In today’s ultra-competitive MLM/Direct Sales world, the average Direct Sales company has many competitors. There are around 12 individual billion-dollar enduring networking companies in this 60-year-old industry, and they all share one formula behind their success. Simply put, each company was at the beginning of a new multi-billion-industry, or they were the first network marketing company in an existing industry.
For example, Amway (household products), Shaklee (nutrition), MaryKay and Avon (cosmetics), Herbalife (herbal products), Tupperware (household products), NuSkin (skin care), Pre-Paid Legal, AL Williams (now Primerica) and Excel (long distance). 20 years ago a new multi-billion-dollar industry emerged and Excel was the company that became the dominant player. There were some internet companies in the dot-com era that achieved big revenue such as SkyBiz. As proven again, Skybiz capitalized in the beginning of the dot-com era with new innovative web related products.
For network marketers, differentiating your products/services and your opportunity is more challenging than at any time in history. Yet it remains at the heart of successful marketing. More importantly, it remains the key to a MLM/Direct Sales company’s survival.
iMatrix Marketing and Strategy Consulting teams don’t waste time. We employ lean methodologies that encourage innovation and market discovery that allow for unique and valuable qualities to be positioned around the world.
iMatrix Software is also up-front and honest: Network marketing is not for the masses, and it never has been. It is for focused, committed, hard-working, persistent, and consistent people who are absolutely determined to change their financial future. And studies reveal that the percentage is very low.
Two or more years are needed to build and organization that will bring financial freedom. A truly major opportunity emerges very rarely in the MLM/Direct Sales space. Is your company going to be a major opportunity?
Saturation is a reality in network marketing. There are many companies that sell nutritional and skin care products, long distance and internet services. In order for one to succeed - individually or as a company – he/she needs quality products/services, reliable software systems, innovative marketing, company positioning, and intelligence.
Compensation plans, especially from the high-priced MLM consultants, are universally built on the failure of the individual distributor. The company gets a margin to work with. They take their percentage for overhead and profit, then they put the remaining percentage in a compensation plan. They create impossible qualifications for the average part-timers to reach. So the part-timers do what they can, but never meet the full qualifications and never qualify for their full commissions – which most of the time go back to the company – called breakage. A company does not have to rob from their distributors to be profitable. It determines its share first, and then must make it possible for distributors to get paid for what they do. The company gets profitable from not only its share of the margin, but their happy distributors who remain active and grow a company to 50,000 – 1,000,000+ distributors. There are some great consultants – but many are not.
Home-based business professionals and the consumers whom they will serve in the 21st century are faced with an explosion of choices. In this environment, distinctive product attributes are quickly replicated by competitors, perceived by consumers to be minimal, or both. Still, those who fail to differentiate their product or service in the mind of their distributors or consumers won’t stand a chance.
At iMatrix Software, we outline the many ways you can achieve differentiation by being creative, economical, customer-oriented, and quality-driven – many things your competitors can do as well. We will also warn you of the difficulties involved with achieving differentiation.
We work with you on your positioning and help you in understanding how the mind works in the differentiating process. We’ll develop techniques to seize a distinguishing idea, dramatize it, and make it your own. We will show you how to use differentiating ideas against your competitors in the home-based business marketplace
