The Trump Network – Internet Marketing at Its Best Or Worst?
Trump Network Compared To Other MLM Programs
The latest hot item on internet marketing is the Trump Network. How does the Trump Network compare to other network marketing programs. The following areas were evaluated to compare two of the most popular network marketing programs:
-What is included in entry kit
-Produced annual household income of customer.
-World wide shipping arrangements.
-Cost of tools and training.
The two Multilevel Marketing Programs (MLM) that will be compared are Strong Future International (SFI) and the Trump Network (TN). The internet is alive with the pre-launch hype for the Trump Network while SFI has been around since 1998. Both of these networks have the goal to allow people to make money online.
The Trump Network appears to be heavily load to produce large income for the higher levels of the upline and the lower tiers are the pawns to the upper levels. SFI has a more balance approach but levels for earnings are higher. Both will be very profitable for the person that make an effort and realizes the limitations of the individual program.
Trump Network at this time has released product information. It is a updated version of the old Amway Vitamin line. The hype is that this one is individually tailor to meet your needs. I take this with reservations. It is an expensive product costing about $ 60 per individual per month.
SFI has a large and diversified product line. This company provides some product that anyone can get excited about. They even have a sales site in the Triple Clicks line that allows you to sell items in much the same way as eBay. They offer the MaxMall line that has over 170 stores to chose products from.
What Is Included In Kit
The SFI entry kit is basically a web site access that has the only cost of being your email address. This give you access to their affiliate program and the ability to by products and sign up new affiliates in your down line. This gives you access to the complete training program. The only upsell to this basic entry level is the "eye earn program" and it cost 20 bucks.
The Trump Network has two entry levels. The quick start method that sells for $ 497.00 and the basic level that sells for $ 48.00. The only difference that I can see to these two levels is that for the first couple of months the high priced version allows you access to some of the higher level stuff what ever that is. I have not viewed the Trump Training program.
The Trump Network has an annual fee for membership as can best be determined from the web site. (I have not yet purchased a membership) The annual fees may well be discussed in the membership package.
SFI is a free entry MLM business no annual fees are charged.
Projected Annual Household Income of Customer
The cost of the product for The Trump Network is $ 60.00 per month per individual the annual income of the customer family for a four member family would be about $ 100,000 per year. Assuming that only the two adults in the family took the supplements the cost would be $ 1400 per year for the family. In order to have $ 1400 per year discretionary income the family would need to bring home over $ 80,000 per year or about $ 100,000 gross income.
SFI has no minimum requirements however they also would like you to sign up for a minimum program. All MLM's push minimum product usage. This ensures the life of the program. Even if clients only buy for themselves the company is secure.
World Wide Shipping Arrangements
Trump Network may not be able to ship their product, at least the current product world wide. There may be many governmental and health restrictions for the import of these product in many countries. The folks at SFI have become a truly world wide company with the addition or regional supply centers and local business where there products can be picked up.
Cost Of Tools And Training
The cost of tools to build your MLM business is always a consideration in the decision to join a program. The entry level cost of the Trump Network is either $ 497 or $ 48. The $ 497 program seems to have more tools and training available. The $ 48 is a bare bones entry program and it appears that you are mostly on your own at this level.
The SFI program has no cost to join but they offer a basic advertising package for $ 20.00 called the Eye Earn package. It looks to be a pretty good deal.
The cost of training for the SFI program is included for free. It consist of many pages of text and a lot of video. I can not tell you exactly what the Trump training program looks like but for the cost it better be good.
What is the best program? The Trump Network definitely has the best media coverage. I question that if it will have that in ten years. This will certainly get it off to a flying start. If they had the products to back up the media hype it would be an excellent opportunity. Without a much leader product line it is going to be hard to make any money except for the fast start method where a chunk of the $ 497 sign up fee is passed to the up line. This kind of reminds me of the chain letter thing.
The SFI opportunity is a proved track record. They have been in business for over 10 years and are in the middle of one of the largest business expansions ever attempted. The number of new lines and stores is hard to believe. The cost with their most expensive package is less than $ 100.00.
If you are interested in building a business that will continue to grow and can be passed down to your kids as a profitable business SFI is the way to go.
