Rod Cook, The Most Trusted Name In Network Marketing
America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.
The Marriage Broker!
MLM Network Marketing and “Marriage”? You’ve got to be kidding, right?
Actually, no. The term is spot on for America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.—the nation’s leading advocate for blending mergers, acquisitions—even funding for distressed companies into a more perfect union.
Rod Cook, globally known as the MLM Watchdog, (www.mlmwatchdog.com) builds a firm foundation supporting MLM companies by arranging marriages (most commonly called mergers/acquisitions) with other companies. And, that’s not all. He also buys, sells and brokers MLM downlines — the lifeblood of any successful MLM venture.
Let’s face it; the worldwide economy is in free-fall mode. It’s easy to understand that this also affects many MLM companies hampering their ability to navigate through the quagmire.
While Network Marketing companies have historically made millions for owners and distributors, these times — “they are a-changing.” Many extraordinary companies limp along within the first year of doing business. This leaves extremely talented MLM leaders and their down-lines crippled in a handicapped economy.
America’s MLM WatchDog.com originated to help rescue the MLM underdog. Sometimes that means providing a time-tested evaluation for potential shutdowns of once thriving companies. Other times it means steering distributors toward more competitive companies destined for success.
Now the #1 champion for Distressed Network Marketing Companies, Rod Cook, Founder and President of America’s MLM Consultants, Inc. presides over the entire process to assure alliances prosper. Here’s what he does:
* Manage Mergers/Acquisitions of smaller MLM companies with larger MLM companies. Sometimes he may even arrange for larger companies to merge with smaller companies. That rarely happens. However, like all things MLM you can always expect the unexpected.
* Provide in-depth evaluations so that all involved, from the top echelons to the bottom tier, can make informed decisions. Without a private, professional evaluation, it can be like the blind leading the blind. Rod evaluates what direction a company plans to take, measures its progress and more importantly, recommends sound solutions to become more profitable.
* Formulate financial funding options for companies who experience stagnant or sluggish growth. Sometimes it takes a bit more cash flow to fix a problem. State-of-art software, compensation plans, even attracting top-notch leadership with a proven track-record for success are just a few examples of where he can step-in and help obtain funding.
All Good Relationships (Especially Marriages) Are Built on Trust.
America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.fast forwards non-disclosure secrecy documents to you as soon as possible. Rod knows that confidentiality is vital to a working relationship. Once signed, then the magic of mergers begins:
*Owners maintain downlines with greater growth potential for income. Owners, once crushed by financial shortcomings, are celebrated and appreciated. *Distributors are treated fairly. Financial loss is minimized or eliminated. Financial growth is enhanced and favorite products and/or services retained. *Owners gain opportunity for leveraged income by selling rights to products/services. These in turn are distributed to larger audiences and markets. And, best of all, long-term residuals from product sales garner a greater mass of people to draw from.
Remember there is no shame in an MLM Merger. Some mergers just make plain good ole business sense.
A MERGER SUCCESS STORY
The MLM world was rocked in the summer of 2010 when, Avon, one of the oldest and most established Billion dollar brand names in MLM industry merged with Silpada Silver a small 13-year old company. The total cost for this endeavor? A whopping $650 million paid by Avon to the owners of Silpada.
Spilpada was not a distressed MLM company. This is simply a story about two companies making a good business decision.
TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT
Anyone considering a possible marriage (merger, acquisition, or funded proposal) should take note of the precise meaning of the terms. The phrase “merger/acquisition” refers to the aspect of corporate strategy and management dealing with the buying/selling process. Combining different companies that can aid, finance or help a growing company prosper rapidly, without having to create another business entity, is the ultimate goal. In short, it’s a sweeter, kinder, way to meld two companies together while keeping MLM leaders, downlines, products and services in tact.
*Acquisition – A larger, more stable company acquires a smaller company with an inadequate growth or cash flow. Acquisitions are common in this era of recession. A shaky economy can help facilitate declining sales even if distributorships are growing. Generally, in an acquisition, the company being acquired does not have its name used in ongoing operations by the acquiring company. Downlines are maintained and preserved.
*Funded Proposal —is totally separate from an acquisition or merger. One of the most common reasons a funded proposal is put on the table is largely due to the fact that it’s using obsolete MLM software. Such companies struggle to grow but do not have the cash flow to generate a decent software infrastructure. This requires an expert MLM business plan for which America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.provide a state-of-the-art template. America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.research funding from a vast network of sources that understand the MLM industry, to include mergers, marriages, acquisitions and funded proposals.
*Leveraged income—Income to company founders earmarked for bringing in a viable product/service to the table. Cash flow is increased to the founder because the product/service is introduced to a larger group of MLM distributors and more purchases are made. This can occur in either an acquisition or merger.
*Merger— A larger company merges with a smaller company experiencing cash flow or growth problems. The smaller MLM company’s name can be maintained. Downline is also preserved. Preferably, a leveraged income can be established during the merger as part of our target contract. A merger is also a face-saving device for the owners and top leaders. A merger is a financial booster if done correctly. America’s MLM Consultants, Inc.has always professed that a merger is one of the most viable instruments in the MLM market place to keep good people, products and services afloat.
Confidence and trust are crucial when a possible merger or acquisition is being seriously considered as a viable option to move forward. Rod Cook acts as the broker and assists owners with the entire marriage process. Distributors are treated fairly. Financial losses are minimized or even eliminated. Best of all, owners gain leverage income by selling product or service rights to be distributed to larger audiences.
“In the final analysis it really boils down to two companies making a good business decision,” Cook said. “I simply help with the negotiations and provide a solid cost-effective network marketing plan geared toward making it a win-wind for everyone.”
