There are very few businesses that truly offer long term, ongoing, residual income year after year. I am so happy to have found a company in which you can have this. The company is TriVita. Trivita is about Cooperative Marketing, it is not an MLM. This is not a new company or something that is "here today and gone tomorrow". This is a real business that has a proven track record. Trivita has a proven business model and history of always paying on time. It's one of the most professional organizations that I have ever seen. Here is a little background on TriVita. They have a very unique business model, Cooperative Marketing. Trivita gets their customers from TV, Radio and magazine advertising. We can then buy the rights to future purchases of these customers while the company does everything: advertising, marketing, research & development, products & inventory, shipping, payments, follow up and more. We receive a commission every time one of these customers make a purchase from the company. We do no selling. They are bringing in serious home based entrepreneurs that are looking for residual income. TriVita is a nine year old nutritional company located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Michael Ellison, the founder, used his decades of media experience and desire to help others achieve better health and founded TriVita. Ellison Media is the 36 year old parent company. They are a multi-million dollar media giant. The reason this works is because this is a real company, with real products, and real paying customers buying consumable products month after month. It's called supply and demand and is how business is done.... think about McDonald's, Coke, Nike, etc. In fact, think about any company that has been in business for a number of years. It always comes down to supply and demand, and these type of products (health and wellness) are in demand. TriVita lets its business affiliates share in their profits through their "cooperative marketing". For example, they could spend $1 Million or more of their own money to advertise in a local market like Dallas. They would have to make a lot of sales from their TV and Radio advertising before they had their money back and made a profit, and before they could advertise again elsewhere. By partnering with its business affiliates and letting them share in the profits, the company uses the money that is spent to buy customers in order to pay for their advertising costs. So instead of spending millions of dollars of their own money for advertising, they use our money and are able to do a lot more advertising in many markets across the United States and Canada. It's brilliant because they can grow their business at a much faster rate without spending their own money. Here's the best part. TriVita has overcome the biggest obstacle that all businesses face: finding and keeping customers that will continue to spend money for years to come. They get their customers from media advertising. They sell them high quality nutritional products (vitamins, weight loss, energy) based on scientific studies and all back up by their 100% money back guarantee. The company then uses the most effective form of direct marketing which are catalogs and the Vita Journal sent directly to the customer 18 times per year which generates even more orders. You do NOT need to have any contact with these customers since the company handles everything. Customers also receive a weekly health related email. Trivita is currently operating in the USA and Canada. There are several levels to join at. The complete pack is $1750, includes many marketing materials and several full sized products for you to try. You also get 25 customers with the complete pack. The basic pack is $500, which is the same as the Complete Pack but does not include any customers. You are eligible for bonus' on new business affiliates at the two above levels. If you are not able to do the above, we also have a $25 level and the starter pack, at $100. You cannot earn the bonus' on these two levels, but you can still buy all the customers you want. Customers are $50 a piece and are yours for life once purchased. Payplan: This is not a forced matrix so there is no spillover. You can have as any business affiliates directly under you as you like, there is no limit. Also, if our customers refer customers, we get commissions on them as well. We can earn on up to 7 tiers/levels. We earn 40% commission on our customer's first order, then 21% thereafter. There is no referring required in Trivita. Some people just buy TONS of customers, place their $20 monthly product order on autoship, which we all are required to have to earn commissions, and that is all they do, buy more customers. However, you can earn even more by referring others in addition to buying customers. You earn 10% on your Business Affiliate's customers first purchase, then 4% thereafter.
