I have recently ventured off to the unknown world of Network Marketing, which, in the internet age, has become a very popular type of business opportunity with people who are looking for part-time, flexible ways to make some extra income. Some of the best-known companies in America, including Avon, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Pampered Chef and Tupperware, fall under the network marketing umbrella. Gone are the days of having to do advertising by telephone alone, sending postcards in the mail or trying to figure out who the right person is to contact within a company to send information to. With a social media presence, texting and email, it is very attainable to become quite successful in getting your products ‘out there’ through the world-wide web for millions of people to learn more about you and what you’re selling.
A big misconception of Network Marketing is thinking of it as a pyramid scheme. A pyramid scheme is an illegal scam where you obtain your income based on a hierarchical setup. New people to the business make up the base of the pyramid and provide the funding the earlier investors/recruits above them receive. An important thing to note between Network Marketing and a pyramid scheme, is that a pyramid scheme does not involve selling any products whereas Network Marketing does, just as if you walked into a store in the mall and took your items selected up to the cash register to buy.
This information led me to look into the company, It Works! You know, that company that swears by ‘that crazy wrap thing’ to tone and tighten your mid-section. The company was started in 2001, are debt-free and successfully growing to the point of reaching the $450 million mark in sales by 2013! Their focus is on creating jobs through Network Marketing while helping those who want to improve their financial situation, health, appearance and lifestyle. Their most popular product is, and continues to be, their wraps but over the years, they have added additional products such as vitamins and supplements, skin-care, essential oils and nutritional shakes and bars…everything you need for a healthy active lifestyle.
A few of my favorite products are…
Ultimate Body Applicator or better known as ‘that crazy wrap thing!’ Expect results in as little as 45 minutes. The cloth wrap is infused with a powerful, botanically based cream formula that delivers tightening, toning, and firming results wherever you need them most!
Hair Skin Nails is support for stronger nails, softer and smoother skin and shiny hair. Full of essential vitamins and minerals to enhance your own natural collagen production, support healthy cell growth and boost your body’s defenses. It’s nourishment from the inside out.
Original Greens on the Go Berry are easy to mix, shake and go. Single serving packets increase your energy, improve your immune system, help with a clean-running digestive system and detoxify for a PH balanced body.
It Works Cleanse x 2 is a gentle two-day herbal cleanse that helps your body reset itself so you can feel and look your best! Formulated to work with your body to help remove toxins while delivering essential nutrients and vitamins. It’s a powerful cleanse without the harsh effects other cleanses can cause…you can go about your day without worry if there is a bathroom nearby.
Lavender Essential Oil for when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Lavender is calming and will help you to relax and center yourself. You can breathe it in or add to your pulse points before going to bed to help give you a peaceful night’s sleep.
It Works Probiotic is for when your tummy needs a little love. Your digestive system is filled with good and bad bacteria, competing with each other and throwing off your balance. You need that balance right so your good bacteria can fend off the immunity-challenging pathogens you encounter every day.
I’m a spender, but it’s always been hard for me to spend money on myself as opposed to others. As we age, our bodies start to lose vital vitamins and minerals that keep us in good health so we need to use what’s available to us to make sure we fight the aging process through weight loss or good nutritional supplements. I have no problem running through a drive-thru for dinner at $10 – $15 a pop, but have a hard time buying something that will benefit my health. It’s crazy! Take one or two trips for junk food out of the budget and put it towards healthy, clean-living products instead and see how much better you will feel. I did, and it works…hence, the clever name.
The company is solid and I’d like to make some extra cash, so I signed up as a Distributor and am now the owner of my own business. It Works provides me with a lot of support and my own website. The products are great so it hasn’t been a hard sell to get people to purchase items. The items speak for themselves. I provide a way for the buyer to get them to use. Win/win.
If you would be interested in working with me as a Distributor and start earning your own spending cash or would be interested in trying out some healthy, clean-living products, go to my website at elderberrygirls.itworks.com and check it out! I would love for us to start working together to grow a business.
If you already use the It Works products, please let me know what you think. Do you like them? Are they working for you? Would you recommend them to a friend? Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you and thanks for reading my blog!
