In March of 2009 Ideal Health which was founded in 1997 was bought out and became Trump Network. Ideal Health was promoting “Testing” to sell nutritionals that were “Custom” made for individuals. As distributors are we missing something that could come back to bite us?
According to Rod Cook of MLMWatchDog … you can read the full article here: http://www.mlmwatchdog.com/Report_ACN.html
March 2012 The watchdog has gotten several “we are owed money complaints” since the Trump Network sold the the company to Antoine Nohra of Credico Marketing. The old Ideal Health owners Todd and Scott Stanwood and Lou DiCaprio stepped down to become independent reps with the new owner. The new name is “Bioceutica.”The Trump name is totally gone!
The history is in 1997, Ideal Health started (and never got good traction) When Donald Trump came in 2009. At the height the Trump Network had about 20k Distributors.
Seriously this article is not about beating up the Trump Network Distributors or Bioceutica for that matter. The plain truth is there are now a LOT of hurting distributors who put in many man hours to make this business model and opportunity work for them. As distributors ourselves we feel very badly about the current position the former Trump Network distributors find themselves. Just imagine how awful it would be to wake up one morning and the nest egg you have been nurturing so diligently is gone.
This happens all the time but it shouldn’t and it does NOT have to be this way.
Eiro Research, a multi level marketing company specializing in health and wellness products, closed up November 2010. I hate to report this again about Trump Network turned Bioceutica, but it is just another hash mark. The trump Network boasted a Killer compensation plan and now distributors have wasted their time and money, blood, sweat and tears to make this best ever killer jaw dropping pulse pounding competition stopping compensation plan work for them.
Our advice…Don’t get caught up in the fact that the company has joined up with a “BIG” name. Actor Danny Glover joined Eiro Research in April of 2009, a good actor for sure, but his name could not keep Eiro Research in business.
Here is proof of this statistic coming true again…Trump Network started March 25, 2009 and sold out to Bioceutica 2012. Very similar story for Eiro which started in the fall of 2009 and GONE by November of 2010.
Do we have a crystal ball? Not at all, we just educated ourselves about this industry and how things work or don’t work. How long a new company lasts or does not last. It is not rocket science by any stretch of the imagination. A new network marketing company is no different than a new traditional business starting up in your town or neighbourhood. There will be bumps and hiccups along the way. Some companies will make it through without stumbling or blinking an eye. But MOST never make it to the other side of the first year.
Your chances would not be much worse if you played the lottery or the slots in Vegas.
It’s important to pursue success with a 5 Pillar company that has proven it will be around long term. Pre-launch deals don’t qualify. Only a very small percentage of them will last even 2 years. Checking the background of the company management team would not hurt either. Do a Google search for the management team’s names.
Find lasting success with a company that has already proven itself for years?
How do you measure if a company will be around long term? Your measuring stick should be the 5 Pillars of success. With these 5 guidelines, “rules or conditions” for success you will be able to determine if a company will be able to provide you with long term success.
STOP!!! BEFORE you join another network/MLM opportunity, you owe it to yourself to get educated and learn how to avoid failure, frustration and scams. Contact us and we would be happy to help. As distributors are we missing something that could come back to bite us?
