Thank you Alticor

Thank you Alticor for fixing your contact us link. Why not you go visit this site? Have fun!

I discovered a new species since I started my blog. That is non-system IBOs. Quite interesting creatures. They build Quixtar without motivational groups like BWW etc. As far as I know, their number is very small as compared to the AQMOs, but they focus on retail and products. They call themselves "Building Quixtar ethically". Does that mean all other system groups are building it un-ethically? Well they said it ;)

I discussed my situation with a non-system IBO regarding the threats from my sponsor. He laughed! He said "You are sharing your experiences. It's your experience." This buddy is an IBO of the exact same company Quixtar. And he is always cool about my blog. Maybe my uplines don’t know about blogs. Uplines: comment here if you wanna say something! It’s not a static site.

I kinda like non-system IBOs. I don’t want to do Quixtar, or any MLM again, but I've been an IBO, and I know a thing or two about retailing. I try to help them whenever I can. What I am trying to say is, I like an honest person earning honestly.

What I don't understand is, why I got such a reaction from system IBOs? Perhaps I am basically criticizing the system? Only if I get some proof that Quixtar is doing something to encourage non-system or "ethical" groups and discouraging system rip-offs, I'll start a new blog "quixtarusedtosuck.blogspot.com". Or something nicer.

Alticor, are you still there? Cool eh!

Hi Imran,

This is Marc.

Just wanted to know, if you got involved with a non system group from the start, how would your view on the big picture be?

Yes Marc. It would be totally different. I am still curious to know that how much corp is taking notice of "system abuses". So far, they're guilty by association. They know it, since decades. But I do respect non-system groups, for staying ethical with all these 'AMOs' around them.

I've never been on a non-system group, so I assume u guys do more retailing than self consumption. In this scenario, I see a positive cash flow. I am not so sure about ROI in terms of hourly rate but IBOs are not employee. As long as a person is not lied to and he don't end up losing time and money chasing some false promise, I don't have a problem.

In fact, I am going to write up some retailing tips. I hope you'll find it useful.

Also, I've yet to see the big picture. On macro level, it would be:

Percentage of system groups IBOs
Percentage of non-system groups IBOs
Corp action and prevention against system abuses.

Can't wait to see the retailing tips, Imran, can use all the help I can get.

As far as retailing, most of my PV is from retailing and a small part is from self consumption....using the products that I like.

As far as the hourly rate comment. It takes time building a solid customer base. I'm getting there, my goal of 100 customers, who are REPEAT customers. So the time to aquire customers may not seem like a lot of money at first, but once your customers become repeat customers, then there is much less time spent. The only time spent is customer service.I'm working consistently towards that goal.

Now, imagine when I get my 100 repeat customers and then shift my focus a bit and look for business partners who will want to acquire 100 repeat customers. It only takes a FEW business partners!

WOW!!!, exciting!!!!!

Marc
