Welcome

I Am Here To Help You Learn Effective Marketing Strategies

 

Welcome to my blog, where you will find the best marketing information to help you to succeed in your home business.


Hello, my name is Richard Brokenshire and I’m glad you decided to visit my blog. My goal is to provide you with effective information and tools that will help you become a successful internet network marketer.

For many people, sales remain a mystery. Selling is the highest paid profession in the world, but most people never put a few pieces together to make a profit.

Sometimes they read about it for years looking for secrets and ways to breakthrough, but the money is always illusive.

Making a full time income in business is possible and many people are doing it? But how can it happen for you?

I’m absolutely convinced that a lot of people are just giving up too soon. They don’t quite master the skills that are necessary to succeed.

So here comes a really important thing…the warning part of this article:

The Internet is a fantastic tool, but it’s loaded with traps, and many people who will sell you half of the tools that you need to become successful. After all, do they really want you to build a real business? Keep in mind, if you become successful you won’t need them or their products anymore. So I’ll ask you again, do they want you to succeed?

Unfortunately they have a reputation that precedes them. It’s easy to fall for the hype when you are at your wits end and you haven’t made money yet.

On my blog you will find advice and real world action plans to help you move forward as a person and in your business life. You may find the “tough love” approach difficult to face but if you stick with it you will put it all together and finally realize the your dream of a successful business.

My first bit of advice is this:

The three main things you need to concentrate on are as follows:

1. Generate your own quality leads

2. Call your leads the same day as they are generated

3. Have a long term follow-up system in place

4. Have a quality business plan that anyone can duplicate

You can’t control what the industry, your company, your up line or down line does, but you can control the three things above.

So which one do you think network marketers have the most challenge with? You guessed it, #1.  Although, picking up a phone that weighs 100 pounds can be tough! Most people seem to have difficulty in generating leads.

I can tell you from personal experience that your friends and family members are not the kind of leads that your business needs. Your brother-in-law or postman are probably not the best people to try to get involved in your business.

Maybe chasing down your friends worked in the 1960s but this is the 21st century. You need to move your thinking to the computer age! The good prospects are online right now. You just need to find them.

You may read about “attraction marketing.” It’s really nothing but putting a help wanted ad in front of someone who is looking for that kind of “job.” It’s not rocket science. Anyone can do that.

 

Thank you!

Richard Brokenshire

Are you still reading Ambit Energy reviews?

 

 

Read no further … this is the best of the Ambit Energy reviews!

 

 

ambit energy reviews

 

 

I choose to review Ambit Energy because it has been one of the fastest growing network marketing companies, since its inception. Does this mean it is a good company to join or not?

 

 

If you are thinking about joining Ambit Energy, you should read as many Ambit Energy reviews as you can find. Be sure that the reviews that you read are not written by current members of the Ambit Energy opportunity. They are just there to try to recruit you into the business and may not give you an unbiased review.

 

 

My review of Ambit Energy will be an independent review. I am not, nor have I ever been a distributor of Ambit Energy products or the business opportunity.

 

 

Whether you are thinking of joining Ambit Energy or any other network marketing company, I would urge you to do your own due diligence. I strive to provide you with useful information that should give you a good start into examining this company. Remember, this is only a start!

 

 

People frequently lose money while trying to build any network marketing company.

 

 

Ambit Energy reviews – the company and its history

 

 

ambit energy reviews and their history

 

 

Ambit Energy was founded by Jere Thompson, Jr., who is the CEO and Chris Chambless, who is the CMO. The company was founded in 2006. Ambit Energy was started to provide both natural gas and electricity to consumers living in states that have deregulated energy. Energy deregulation means that anyone who can get licensed in one of these states, can sell energy to the public. They are, currently, licensed in 14 states. They are Connecticut, Delaware, Washington, DC, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Texas and they provide service to California.

 

 

From their humble beginnings, they have grown to have a distributor force of more than 250,000. They have over 1,000,000 customers, as well. They’ve done this in 8 years.

 

 

There are only 13 network marketing companies that do over $1,000,000,000 in revenues, per year. That’s $1 billion! Ambit Energy is number 12 on that list.

 

 

Ambit Energy is well into their 8th year of business. This is a good sign as they have made in through the first 5 years. Most network marketing companies that fail, will fail in their first 5 years of business.

 

 

It’s very impressive what they’ve been able to accomplish this in such a short period of time.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – BBB Rating for Ambit Energy

 

 

Ambit energy reviews - their Better Business Bureau rating

 

 

I checked with the Better Business Bureau, and Ambit Energy has a rating of A+. They are in very high standing with the BBB.

 

 

Keep in mind that this rating is derived from the complaints that the company gets and how well they are able to resolve these problems.

 

 

If you would like to read the BBB report, you can find it here. Ambit Energy BBB report.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – their products

 

 

Ambit energy only has 2 products to choose from. They are electricity and natural gas. They can provide them to either residential or business customers.

 

 

When I do a review of a company, I usually provide a link to get a sample of the company’s products. However, since the products are electricity and natural gas, there is no need for that.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – their products

 

 

All electric and gas providers buy their products “on the grid.” It is the same electricity and gas that you would get from any company. The only thing that changes, when you sign up for Ambit’s services, is the billing name on your monthly bill.

 

 

Ambit does offer “guaranteed discounts” on their products. I did call the company about this and I was told that the discount plans vary from state to state and from day to day. If you are interested in comparing their rates to the rates you have with your current provider, you can check on their website. Ambit’s website.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – if you join

 

 

If you decide to become a distributor for this company you will pay $429.00. Then there is a monthly fee of $24.95 for a replicated website and “back office. This gives you the right to sell Ambit’s energy products.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – the compensation plan

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – the compensation plan

 

 

There are just 5 levels in the Ambit compensation plan. The range from the entry level of Marketing Consultant to the top level called, National Consultant.

 

 

There is a company produced video that goes over the compensation. It is a little over 5 minutes in length. It shows the possible incomes at each level and shows that they, too, have bonuses for differing achievements.

 

 

 

 

I also found an 18 page document that might go into more detail. You can find that document here. Getting Paid.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – their income disclosure statement

 

 

I was unable to find an Income Disclosure Statement on their website. I decided to call Ambit Energy Customer Service and I was told that information was confidential. I was also told that I was the only person who had ever asked for that kind of information. I told them that it was my understanding that the FTC requires that information to be made public.

 

 

They were unimpressed.

 

 

I ask for the IDS just to make sure that nothing is totally out of whack. Because there are times when things are totally out of whack.

 

 

Ambit energy reviews – is this the right company for you?

 

 

Obviously, you will need to make that decision for yourself. There are a few things that I like about Ambit Energy and a few things that concern me.

 

 

I like the fact that they have been in business for 8 years. They have shown phenomenal growth in that time. Being one of 13 companies that have reached the $1 billion level is nothing short of fantastic! They show no signs of slowing down, any time soon.

 

 

They may not have been the first network marketing company to enter the energy niche, but they have quickly become the leader in the industry.

 

 

These are the things that concern me about Ambit Energy. They can only operate in the United States. There are only 28 states that have energy deregulation. Some of those 28 states are now conducting “pilot” programs. There is no guarantee that they will adopt energy deregulation, for the future. Also, some of the states that do have energy deregulation, have only one of the products that are deregulated. This means that Ambit may be able to sell electricity, but not natural gas. Or vice-versa.

 

 

Ambit Energy scam?

 

 

ambit energy pyramid scam?

 

 

Being that Ambit is in the energy niche, there may be some that might think that they are a scam. Let me assure that Ambit is a good and strong company. They are in no way a scam!

 

 

As always, if you are thinking about joining this company, do your own due diligence.

 

 

The person who sponsors you is just as critical to your success as the information that is contained in this Ambit Energy review.

 

 

In the end, you must be willing to sell the products and recruit people into the business. It helps, a lot, if you are enthusiastic about, both, the company and their products!

 

 

I am wishing you the best of luck in your network marketing journey!

The struggle of network marketing

 

 

Struggles

 

 

Have you ever seen a baby bird come out of its shell? It’s pretty cool to watch.

 

 

Here’s a video if you haven’t seen it happen.

 

 

 

 

It’s quite a struggle to get out of that shell! They poke a hole in the shell, with their beaks. Then they crack a line all the way around the shell. Then they take a break and catch their breath. Then they start up again. They work some. Then they rest some. All the while, they are focused on their goal. “Get me outta here!”

 

 

It’s a lot of work to get out of that shell. This is a good thing for the chicken! It strengthens the bird. It gives it a better chance of survival. If you help the chick to get out of its shell, you run the risk of the chick being too weak and not surviving.

 

 

Building a network marketing business is almost the same thing as a chicken pecking its way out of its shell. It’s a struggle. It’s a process that we all have to go through.

 

 

You need to respect the process! Honor it.

 

 

honor the struggle like a chicken does

 

 

When you get into a network marketing business, you will be tempted to bypass as much of this struggle as you can. You will try all sorts of things to make things happen quicker and easier. You may even ask your sponsor to do things for you. My best advice for this. Take a nap and let that feeling go away!

 

 

Don’t get me wrong. I do believe that a sponsor should help you! They should teach you how to do certain things. They can even do things with you, but they should never do things for you!

 

 

If they do, they run the risk of their recruits being to weak to survive this business! Believe me,it’s a very tough business!

 

 

What will the struggle do for you in network marketing?

 

 

Just like the chicken, you’ll be stronger. You’ll be able to survive. You’ll learn all the lessons that you need to learn, in order to be successful. You’ll appreciate all that you achieve.

 

 

go through the process

 

 

You will come out of the other side of your struggles with a very inspirational story. Imagine being able to tell a prospect or a room full of distributors, at you company’s convention, about how you were able to over come things that most people will never even encounter in their businesses.

 

 

All the hardships and life lessons that you’ve learned along the way will motivate even the toughest cynic.

 

 

Don’t ask to bypass the process. Learn how to over come. Roll up your sleeves and work through the problems that will, invariably, happen. There will be struggles. There will be hardships. There will be problems. It’s all part of the game.

 

 

struggle - it's not a bad word

You need to be reading Jamberry Nails reviews if you are thinking of joining

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews

 

 

jamberry nails

 

 

Jamberry Nails has been one of the very fastest growing network marketing companies in the world, over the past 12 months. Does that mean that you should be thinking about joining this company? Let’s take a look. This is my Jamberry Nails review.

 

 

If you are thinking about joining Jamberry Nails, you should read as many Jamberry Nails reviews as you can find. Be sure that the reviews that you read are not written by current members of the Jamberry Nails opportunity. They are just there to try to recruit you into the business and may not give you an unbiased review.

 

 

My review of Jamberry Nails will be an independent review. I am not, nor have I ever been a distributor of Jamberry Nails products or the business opportunity.

 

 

Whether you are thinking of joining Jamberry Nails or any other network marketing company, I would urge you to do your own due diligence. People frequently lose money while trying to build any network marketing company.

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews – the company and its history

 

 

jamberry nails reviews - its history

 

 

Jamberry Nails was founded by three sisters, in the summer of 2010. Lyndsey Ekstrom, Christy Hepworth and Keri Evans are the 3 sisters who had the idea for “nail art.” It is Christy’s husband, Adam Hepworth who is currently serving as the company’s CEO.

 

 

Jamberry Nails is located in Lindon, Utah. If you would like to visit the Jamberry Nails website, you can find it here. Jamberry Nails website.

 

 

As of January 2012, Jamberry Nails had approximately 700 distributors. At last count, they had about 7,000 distributors. That is meteoric growth!

 

 

That’s the good news. The bad news is that the company has only been in business for 4 years. Personally, I prefer that a company be in business for at least 5 years. This is because most network marketing companies that fail will fail in their first 5 years. Looking at the stunning growth that they’ve experienced, I like their chances of staying in business!

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews – their Better Business Bureau rating

 

 

Jamberry Nails has a rating of A-, with the Better Business Bureau. I like to see that a company has at least an A rating or higher. Although, A- is acceptable, to me.

 

 

The job of the BBB is to receive complaints about the company, their service and their products. They try to resolve these complaints.

 

 

If you would like to read about the complaints that Jamberry Nails has gotten, you can go to the BBB website. You can find out what type of complaints they have gotten and if and how they were resolved. This may give you an idea of what you might face as a distributor for Jamberry Nails.

Jamberry Nails reviews – their products

 

 

jamberry nails reviews - the products

 

 

Jamberry Nails’ primary product is their nail wraps. They say that they are not stickers, but they look like stickers to me. They are sold on sheets that contain enough material to do 2-3 sets of nails. They are supposed to last 2 weeks on fingernails or 4 weeks on toenails.

 

 

The pricing for each sheet of nail wraps, according to their website, is $15.00.

 

 

They also offer nail care products, products to aid in the application of the nail wraps, nail lacquers and hand care products. They are just introducing a service where you can upload your own images and custom design your own nail wraps.

 

 

The custom nails will cost $18.75 per sheet and there is a one time set up charge of $6.00.

 

 

I always encourage people to try out the products before they sign up with a company. If you would like to try Jamberry Nails’ nail wraps, you can find a few on Amazon.

 

 

There a few for sale at the moment. Notice that they are offered as 1/2 sheets.

 

 

Trying the nail wraps out will allow you to decide if you think that you can sell the products.

Jamberry Nails reviews – if you join

 

 

jamberry nails reviews - to join or not to join?

 

 

If you do decide to join the company as a distributor, it will cost you $99.00. You get the following items:

 

 

Jamberry starter kit contains the following:

50 Catalogs
25 Brochures
100 Order Forms
Rubber Cuticle Pusher
50 Orange Sticks
5 Nail Files
Mini Heater
Alcohol Wipes
Consultant Guide
3 Buffers
3 Sets of Scissors
50 Sample Cards
1 Sheet of Jamberry Nails
Credit to Order 3 Sheets of Nails of Your Choosing
3 Months of Use on Your Personal Website

 

 

You get 3 months of your personal website for free. If you want to have it after that, it will be a recurring payment of $10.00 per month.

 

 

Jamberry Nails does not have an autoship program. That is a plus for the distributors. I’ve long held that autoship is one of the main reasons that network marketers go broke and quit.

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews – the compensation plan

 

 

jamberry nails reviews - the comp plan

 

 

There are 13 different levels to the Jamberry Nails compensation plan. You start out as a Consultant and you progress through to being Elite Executive, at the top level.

 

 

They have a 14 page document, of which 3 pages are there to describe the pay plan, the bonuses and overrides that the distributors can earn.

 

 

You can find the entire compensation plan document here. It is available for download.

 

 

Jamberry Nails (US) compensation plan document

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews – their income disclosure statement

 

 

Jamberry Nails actually provides 2 different documents for their compensation plan. They have the one for the United States and one for their newly opened Canadian division. I’m including the Canadian compensation plan document in the income disclosure statement section because Jamberry Nails has hidden the only income disclosure statement inside this document.

 

 

The information is not very thorough, but it tells a great deal about the earnings that can be expected by anyone joining this company.

 

 

Again, the document is available for download.

 

 

Jamberry Nails (Canadian) compensation plan document

 

 

On page 2 of the document, it says,

 

 

Typical Participant means a Participant engaged in the plan for at least one year. A Typical Participant in the plan earns between CAD $36 and $998 annually. Please note that these earnings are estimates and have been derived from the earnings experience of Jamberry Canada’s U.S. parent company, which operates similar and comparable compensation plans, selling comparable products in the United States and worldwide.”

 

 

Subtract about 10% for people doing Jamberry Nails here in the US. The exchange rate comes into play.

 

 

Unfortunately, the company doesn’t break down these numbers. It is very telling that they are willing to say that the typical person who tries this business is only earning anywhere from $3.00 per month up to $83.00 per month.

 

 

Is $83.00 per month an income that you can get excited about?

 

 

Jamberry Nails reviews – is this the right company for you?

 

 

jamberry nails reviews - yes or no?

 

 

You will need to weigh things out for yourself. Jamberry Nails is an extremely fast growing company, at the moment. Going from 700 distributors to 7,000 in less than 2 years is nothing short of amazing!

 

 

I would suggest talking to as many current and former distributors of Jamberry Nails to find out what kind of experiences that they have had in the business.

 

 

As with all network marketing companies the person who sponsors you is probably more important than the company and their products.

 

 

In the end, it will be up to you to sell the products and find people to sponsor into the business. It helps if you are enthusiastic about both!

 

 

Whether you decide to join Jamberry Nails or another network marketing company, keep in mind that 97%+ people never make any money in the business and most of those actually lose money.

 

 

Whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best of luck!

 

 

This concludes my Jamberry Nails reviews. I would urge you to do your own due diligence and keep in mind that the company tells prospects that the most a typical person can, currently, earn in this business is $83.00 per month.
