For Networkers Only (Concept vs. Reality)
If you’ve had any experience at all in the network marketing industry, you’ve probably had your fair share of ups and downs. The opportunity always seems to be enticing, but if you’re like most people, the reality you’ve experienced has probably been much less than what you were hoping for. Why is that? We can explain.
You’re probably familiar with all the negative stigma surrounding our industry; “only people at the top ever make money,” it’s a pyramid scheme,” etc. Here’s the thing: the concept of network marketing is not the problem! The concept of leveraging your effort and earning true, walk-away residual income is unbeatable. In fact it’s really the only way most people today have a chance at achieving the financial independence we all seek.
Unfortunately, the reality of network marketing has been sorely lacking! Because until now, until GBG, network marketing has been shaped and designed by the owners of companies, not by their distributors. That’s why the implementation of this amazing concept has consistently stacked the odds against most people ever succeeding. Yes, it’s actually BY DESIGN that so many people fail in this industry. But not anymore! GBG is changing that paradigm – for everyone!
You see there are basically 2 types of network marketers. There are the majority of people who don’t experience the success they’re looking for; and then there are the few who do, but who see that most of their team members don’t. The second group has to keep replacing their failing team members by bringing new people in through the “front door” as fast as the old ones are going out the “back.” We call this the recruiting treadmill and no one wants to get stuck there.
No matter which group you belong to, if you’ve ever felt like you failed at network marketing, maybe it wasn’t you who failed; maybe it was the industry that failed you.
Did you know that it’s a proven statistic, researched over the last 40+ years, that the average network marketer will bring in 2.7 other people to his or her company. Now let me ask you, have you ever seen a compensation plan where that amount of work could earn you any real money? Where by bringing in just 2 people, and experiencing an average team growth of 2 getting 2, you could earn life changing income? Probably not. Here’s why.
Network marketing is a business. It’s a different business model than traditional business, paying commissions to distributors rather than wages to employees. But it’s still a business. The owners of any traditional business have to pay their employees in order to get them to do the necessary work that makes the business successful. If the employees don’t get paid, they won’t work. But the more the owners pay their employees, the less they make in corporate profits. So it’s a balancing act.
Network marketing is no different.
Network marketing company owners also have to pay their distributors to get them to promote the products and services they offer. But the more the owners pay out in commissions, the less they make in profit. The very fact that the owners profits are reduced by every commission paid, puts them at odds with their own distributors. Every network marketing company that we know of, other than GBG, has been started by business owners for profit. That’s why the odds are purposely stacked against the average person (that is, the majority of people) succeeding.
Whether it’s pay plan changes that reduce your income, unrealistic sponsoring qualifications that most people can’t achieve and that force you to never stop working, balancing requirements that can never be met, personal and group volume minimums that are way above the reach of most people’s abilities, or simply overpriced products that cause people to stop ordering when they realize they’re not making enough money to justify the expense; there’s always something that stacks the odds against the masses succeeding. That’s because if the average person doing the average work can achieve the big income everyone dreams about, then the owners’ profits will be reduced to almost nothing. Here’s the thing – It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way!
We want you to know that GBG is NOT just another network marketing company. This is NOT just another “deal,” or another product line. The truth is, this is a whole new paradigm in business; not just in network marketing, but in any business arena. GBG presents an entirely new vision and business philosophy.
Stuart Finger, the founder and CEO of GBG, is first and foremost a network marketer. He made it to the top of other companies, only to walk away from huge income because he felt like he was making money OFF people instead of WITH them. He started GBG to make sure that he could guarantee a “Home” where network marketers would not have to “battle the odds” in order to succeed, or have to worry about their income being taken away from them. More than that, he put his money where his mouth is. Stuart Finger, owner and founder of GBG, gets paid the same way as every other distributor in the company – through the pay plan!
Think about that for a minute. Your owner here is also your upline. He only succeeds if you succeed. And if he wants a raise, he has to give you a raise! More importantly, if he does anything to reduce your pay, his own pay will go down as well. Imagine if the CEO of a Fortune 500 company got paid the same way as the assembly line workers. Do you think that might make a difference? That’s the GBG difference.
GBG isn’t like any other company you’ve ever seen before. This is NOT a company started by business owners for corporate profit. This is a company started by a network marketer FOR network marketers.
At GBG we are committed to repairing the bad reputation this industry has endured and to restoring network marketing to the upstanding position it deserves. And we’re doing this daily by stacking the odds in your favor, instead of against you. It just makes sense, since we’re all on the same team.
We invite you to take the time to really examine all aspects of GBG. Scrutinize us; put us “under the microscope” so to speak. We promise you, the deeper you dig, the better it gets.
Welcome to the new era of network marketing. Welcome to GBG!
