Market America Review: Is Market America A Scam Or A Legitimate Business Opportunity?

By Kate Lawler

There aren’t many third party resources out there that explain what Market America is all about, and whether it is legit or not. In fact, in all my research, I’ve only come across four articles, and they were confusing and inaccurate.

With all of that going on, how exactly do you get factual answers from an unbiased source about Market America?

You’ve definitely found the right place. This article is exactly that – an unbiased, fact based article that will give you the TRUTH about Market America.

Now if you’re trying to find a “get rich quick” thing, then you need to look elsewhere. The compensation plan is made for long term success. Market America expands through qualified business owners, and not people who just jump from opportunity to opportunity.

The products that they carry have point values instead of dollar values, and these point values build to a certain point until the distributor gets paid a commission under the compensation plan.

Actually, the point value and dollar value are nearly the same, so they build up in the distributor’s business pretty fast. Even still, there are a couple of ways that distributors get paid in the compensation plan.

To make money right away, distributors can earn retail profits simply by selling the Market America brand products.

Unlike most network marketing companies, there is no purchase requirement for the distributor – only sales requirements, which is actually a requirement of the US government, not Market America itself.

Because of this, a distributor could never purchase one product from the company and still get paid. However, Market America claims that the key to their success so far is that they have great products, and that it’s hard to sell a product that you have never used. Keep in mind that it’s important that a company believes it has the best products – if not, I’d be finding a new company.

The products on Market America’s website are quite varied. They’ve covered almost every major industry, from auto care to pet care, home and garden to health and wellness.

A third way distributors can get paid is through their website, which the company terms as the “Mall Without Walls.” Market America likens this website to a franchise.

What is really unique about this internet franchise is that there are thousands of stores on the site, and distributors get paid for those sales like they would as an affiliate of those stores. They also offer cash back rewards to their customers for purchasing products online. This is completely different from most Network Marketing companies.

Now you have to be sure that when you are looking at ANY business, you look at it’s track record. Market America’s annual report is public, and they have had nothing but growth since they began in 1992.

The bottom line on this company is that yes, Market America is a legitimate home business opportunity. But with its wide range of products and services, and its unique compensation structure, it is ESSENTIAL that you have the right marketing training to build the business.
