Market America is a product brokerage company that has been helping people become their own business owners since 1992. The company prides itself in being the “Unfranchise”, since it allows its distributors to sell company products online without the cost, hassle and startup requirements of routine franchises. Since the company’s inception, they have worked with well over half a million independent distributors who all own and operate their own websites. Distributors can market and advertise their own sites as they wish in order to provide a better revenue for themselves. The company is found in America and Canada, with plans to expand to Europe in the next few years. 650 people work for the company helping distributors get started and maintain their own sites. Distributors can make anywhere from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars each month for each sale that is made. Products are sold on a commission-basis, which means that you only get paid if a product is sold and kept by the customer.
Market America works with different affiliate manufacturing corporations to create and produce product lines that range from automotive care products to weight loss supplements and everything in between. These lines are known as Pet Health, Royal Spa, Isotonix and AutoWorks. Distributors can pick and choose the products they want to sell on their pre-purchased websites. The website package available by Market America includes a domain name, hosting and website builder to make it easy to design the site that you need to bring in a regular client flow. Purchasing the website package is part of the startup fee, and you will then need to pay Market America $100 a month to retain the rights to the products. Products can also be found on Shop.com for resale if you’re interested in purchasing directly from the manufacturer.
Apart from paying a fee to maintain your site’s operation, you’ll also be required by Market America to attend conventions and seminars that are done both locally and online. The seminars can cost anywhere from $50 to $300 depending on the length and type of convention you’ll be attending. If you fail to make use of their seminars, you will lose the rights to the products and will have your website deactivated.
