Seacret | Small Business | Network Marketing
How does this all fit together? Well, this has been my choice and made the most sense to me, in my experience with the working world as: an employee, entrepreneur, and profitable small business owner. I’ve been all 3, just not all at the same time and maybe, my story sounds just like yours.
I started in Corporate America, doing pretty much administrative things, even though my degree had more to offer. After getting nowhere for a few years, it was time to leave for more creative endeavors; and my graphics’ background landed me in advertising with a small business.
The Employee with a little.
This particular position lasted for 7 years, because the pay was decent and there was some creative freedom with the work produced. Time wore away the outer edges though, revealing it was underpaid and at that – completely capped with this particular small business. We won’t get into the rest of the headache that eventually made even the paycheck not worth continuing. Absolutely no incentive – sound familiar?
The Sole Proprietor.
Next up, the Art Career small business – which was running in the background the whole time in advertising. Here was where complete creative freedom exploded – and also the daunting realty of what it means to own a small business where one: 1) Creates the product 2) Markets the product 3) Sells the product – all with expenses accruing to do so. I never entered to be the “Starving Artist”; and it wasn’t the case. However, many would be shocked to learn that often with artists, so much cost is involved to produce that many break even or work for years before their business even reaches the black.
The problem: we have to work our business, but not “be in” our small business to truly be profitable.
That is nearly impossible for artists to do unless they employ a way to produce their work beyond their own hand, such as licensing. That said, it is also the model any business owner faces unless they begin with substantial capital, means for growth, and delegation to employees. Nothing is more costly than the Owner’s time, and that needs to be efficient.
The Small Business Owner, Profitable.
At about the same time licensing entered the picture, so did internet marketing. After experiencing the dues any small business owner has to market themselves, the internet with free or low cost ways of exposure were ideal. There are solid, valuable training tools out there that people need to build their business online – and that’s when Affiliate Marketing revealed itself. As one grows and learns using a training product to build their business, they can become an Affiliate for that product and refer others. This is a great income stream and profitable because it’s a product one can make a commission on – that they don’t have the expense of producing, nor time sucked away training another.
Part 2 here involves Leverage Systems, or Referral Marketing – which is basically just like an Affiliate, except it’s you partnered with a company – and it’s your very won small business, or big business! It can be any Network Marketing Company with a decent product and compensation plan. The beauty, as in Affiliate Marketing – one can promote a product they don’t have the expense of producing, marketing and selling. Start up costs are usually low, especially compared to franchises or brick and mortar businesses, employees, etc. Below is a great video covering the various options out there and the pro’s and cons for each.
I personally have 4 streams of Income: Art, Licensing, Affiliate Marketing & Referral Marketing. I love my freedom and am truly unemployable! I chose the referral marketing company “Seacret” due to the timing; anyone joining at this time is on the Ground Floor. Timing trumps talent. Consistency also trumps talent. This is one of those “once in a lifetime opportunities” to jump on. Harvard Business School recently published:
“The company needs to be a ‘ground floor’ opportunity. Harvard Business School suggests that in order for the opportunity to qualify as ‘ground floor’, the number of existing distributorships should be less than be less than ½ of 1% of the population (300 million in the United States) in the country where this network marketing company exists. In the United States this figure is about 1.5 million people. Harvard Business School also states that if there are less than 500,000 distributors, you could be on the cutting edge of an opportunity. If the company has less than 100,000 distributors, Harvard Business School considers it possible that you could be in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
At this time Seacret has only 10,000 distributors and is in it’s very first year of Referral Marketing. The compensation plan is the most generous to date for this industry; a binary leg system with team leverage and income based on volume sales, not just recruits – as most are designed. So no worries of being that “Icky MlMer” everyone wants to avoid! The skincare products are great, truly – but the timing here is the reason to join!
