So, out of the thousands of Network Marketing opportunities out there, why did I choose to go with Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing? In this 3-minute review, I reveal my reasoning behind the choice I made. First let me start with just a brief overview of Fortune Hi-Tech marketing. This company was founded by one of the top performing network marketers to ever work in this industry, Mr. Paul Orberson. Paul, a former teacher and coach, became a multi-millionaire before the age of 40. He helped turn the first company he joined, into a multi-billion dollar, publicly traded NYSE company.
Paul's goal in starting Fortune was to "give back," by starting a company that would have focused on the Representatives and their SUCCESS. Part of the mission statement for this company includes paying "the majority of the profits back to the reps who build the company." Profits begin to be paid by the 2nd level. This company is 100% debt free and is partnered with Tier 1 companies, such as AT & T and Verizon, as well as other wireless companies, GE Home Security, and some more brand name companies.
Right up front I will say, after absorbing as much information as I could about this network marketing opportunity, the one thing I found objectionable about Fortune, was the archaic marketing methods being taught by the lines and the lack of specifics about the top 1 % of the company. And how they really were able to become 6 or 7-figure earners in such a short amount of time. But that's a conversation for another time!
As I continued to mull over my decision about joining FHTM, one thing that jumped out at me almost immediately, was the fact that the products and services being offered, are really the same products and services that most people are ALREADY USING every day. My thoughts were that it's a whole lot easier to sell someone on a product they already know they need or if they're already using a similar product.
Cell phones, satellite TV services, nutritional products & fitness, beauty products (shampoo, moisturizers, etc.), travel services, home security systems, identity theft protection – this is just a sampling of the products & services available through FHTM. WOW, I remember thinking. Talk about diversification!
Then I thought about the fact that many MLM opportunities offer ONE type of product for their distributors. That's it. I began to ponder one question – what happens when their product is no longer popular? No longer thought after? What then? What is there to fall back on? The obvious answer was staring me right in the face – NOTHING. There would be nothing to fall back on.
Fortune is partnered with not only Tier 1 companies, but a diverse group of companies which are NOT TIED to any one specific industry. To me, it only made sense that this would help FHTM (and me) weather any changes in trends without even batting an eye. That sounded really good! Especially in the economically-challenged times in which we're currently living!
Another deciding factor with me, in joining this opportunity, was the AMAZINGLY small investment required to get started. At the time, I admit, even the $ 299.00 sounded like a lot to me, but when I thought about the other ventures I had considered, $ 299.00 was definitely doable.
So, 300 bucks to start building my own business – not bad I thought. Considering that start-up costs for your average franchise business like a Subway or McDonald's can range anywhere from $ 15,000.00 to $ 250,000.00. Three hundred bucks? Not a problem! And some other MLM opportunities require thousands of dollars to get started as well. I began to add up all the "pros" of signing up with FHTM:
* 100% Debt-Free Company, Made Strong By Its Diversification of Products And Services
* Company And Compensation Plan Are Representative-Friendly
* Produtcs And Services Which My Prospects / Customers Already Use Everyday
* MINIMAL Investment To Get Started
That being said, for me personally, the pros outweighed the cons, and I chose to join FHTM. Well, my three minutes are up.
