Amway Business Building Seminar April 11th 2010:

Following last month’s fantastic event, Amway announced the next Business Building Seminar has been scheduled for Sunday 11th April 2010 from 1pm to 5pm.
Amway have said they will continue to support the exciting growth in Ireland!

The seminar is open to ROI ABOs and UK ABO with groups in Ireland – but I guess that means it’s open to all ABOs in the UK/ROI market – but it might be worth checking who is actually invited.

If you are an Amway ABO this is a fantastic to associate with your fellow business owners and also learn your business. You will also meet corporate staff and there will be a product display starting at 1pm.

Have a great day all you Amway Business Owners or should I say ABOs

Amway Opportunity Meetings in Ireland:

Some great news for Amway in Ireland. The amount of Open Opportunity Meetings have been expanded in April to take account of the growth in the Irish Market.

The idea behind these business presentations is to assist Amway Business Owners [ABOs] in presenting the opportunity to new people and for new and existing ABOs to discuss learn more about their Amway Business.

As these meetings form part of Amway’s support to ABOs there is no entry fee, therefore every ABO should avail of the meeting in their area.

Even if ABOs do not have guests or new ABOs to bring to the meeting they should come along to meet the team, learn the business and support Amway – after all they are supporting us.

This is the list taken from the latest email form Amway:

Why Amway – Why Direct Selling – Why Network Marketing:

If ever there was a time to look at a new income option this is it.

With the recession still biting and reduced incomes why not -Take Control of your Future –  Look at your options can you get a pay rise in the next two years  in a conventional job, if you are self employed are you working harder that ever just to stand still.

Take a serious look at your revenue streams and then take a look at Amway. Amway is a ready made business opportunity; it’s a proven business with over fifty years experience in the direct selling and network marketing industry. One thing we can be sure of is that as long as there are customers there will be sales people, as long as there is a need for a product there is a sales person to sell it. Selling is an honourable career and a career that has so much potential that it is worth investigating to see if it is an option for you.

If it is immediate income you are after then you all you have to do is sell/retail top quality Amway Products. There is no greater satisfaction than the feeling you get knowing that you have filled a need for a customer. Amway carry a wide range of products under three main categories Home, Health & Wellness and Beauty. Everybody we know uses a product that can be replaced by an Amway product – so it may be only one product you sell to a customer with the 100% satisfaction guarantee but whether it’s one or ten products you sell you are on your way to building your Amway Business.

If you have leadership qualities and are ambitious then you can lead your own team with the potential to earn a larger income with other bonus payments.

There is so much doom and gloom talk around that it is often difficult to see what is right under your nose – look into direct selling as an opportunity to expand your income – look into Amway as the market leader in the industry and know that what you are doing is filling the needs of customers,  who will only be delighted to give you repeat business if you look after them well.

Go on have a go – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Amway Seminar March 7th 2010

Amway held it’s 2nd business Building Seminar of 2010 in Johnstown House Hotel today Sunday March 7th – This was a fantastic event with some great speakers and a product display. One unique feature of these Amway events in Ireland is the ticket price and what happens to the funds. Tickets are €5 i.e. five euro per ABOship. ABOs enter their name, ABO number and nominate a local children’s charity – during the seminar a draw takes place and the chosen ABO will get to present the funds to the chosen charity.

Back to the speakers we had a new 21% telling us how they did it and Pat Stranney teaching on how to get started and to close the evening we had executive diamond Jackie Gulick on rewards and lifestle.

We also had Andy Smith General Manager & Director, Amway UK and RoI speaking on company updates etc.

All this in a little town just outside Dublin in the Republic of Ireland – what a way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Amway ROI/UK Getting Stronger:

Amway UK/ROI is alive and well and growing. In Ireland we are progressing with the roll out of Open Opportunity Meetings. This month June ’09 we launched the Cork Open. Cork is in the south of the country. We have also moved Dublin to two opens per month. Numbers are growing at all opens and room sizes are under pressure. Although we still have issues with some of the restrictions in the new business model – it is workable and provides a strength to the new ABOs business. The retail part of the business is now stronger and provides solid income in month one for new ABOs and once they achieve the benckmark of minimum 5 registered customers and total sales of €190 / £150 they can move to the next level which allows them to sponsor. We have turned the corner and there is a lot more to be done – but we are out there doing it – nothing on the hard work side of the business has changed – if you want success in direct selling and network marketing – you have to put in the efforts of talking to people – showing the plan – registering and training new ABOs – selling products – building a customer base – driving the miles – building foundations is never easy but without them the structures will be weak and eventually fall. So it’s time to re-double our efforts and push forward in 2009 so that this year will be the year that the foundations for growth in Amway UK/ROI were laid.

Amway a Business for Today:

Amway a Business for Today:

Considering all the challenges our business has gone through over the years and more so in the past twelve months – is Amway a business for today?

Certainly if we consider that economies are on the downturn, there must be a percentage of the population that is looking for an opportunity to increase their income and maintain their lifestyle – but was that not always the case?

If we consider the 80 – 20 rule – http://management.about.com/cs/generalmanagement/a/Pareto081202.htm then we can to come to the conclusion that most people will not do what it takes when it comes to succeeding in business. Now many people are happy with their lot in life and to this end they are entitled to be left to what ever it is they are happy with. Just imagine out of every 100 head of population we have an 80% target market for retailing products and services.

Now that we know how big our retail market is we can conclude that our business opportunity is in the other 20%.

Here then is the dilemma – within the 80% who will be our customers and within the 20% who will join and build the business with you. A further dilemma is who in the 100% is likely to be in the 20% and who in the 80%.

Well the answer is we don’t know – so the process begins – and that then is our business – sorting through people – engaging people in conversation about their life – finding out do they fit the business or customer profile – either way play your cards right and you are on a winner. Retail customers are required to build the business now more than ever before.

I remember listening to a tape by Dexter Yager where he said “you talk to a lot and you find a few – talk to a lot and find a few” – stick to the basics.

Now just how do you do that – well most people need some form of basic training in approaching people in the correct way as to add to their chance of success. Success is never guaranteed in any walk of life especially business – so doesn’t it make sense to learn the fundamentals of the business from people who have walked the walk before you.

So like any job or business the majority can’t just walk in and be successful – there has to an education process and our business is no different – we have the process that most people prefer it’s called ‘on the job training’ and ‘earn as you go training’. The question who is more suited to carry out this training? People who have blazed the trail or theorycrats [great word that] from behind a desk. Defined training courses are essential but active ongoing trainng has to be a winner in terms of keeping people motivated.

When Amway Calls:

When Amway calls who will be there to answer. As we await the decision of the courts and we get on with operating the only part of the business open to us i.e. retailing – we ask the question what will be the strength of the active ABOs when the re-launch of the business finally happens.

We also understand that the high pin ABOs have had training sessions with Amway the content of which was very good and by all accounts should have been open to all ABOs. With the lack of communication from leaders in the field and Amway having closed work shops i.e only open to the chosen few, where are the Certified Retail Consultants to get the required training in time for the relaunch of the business and sponsoring.

Perceptions:

The public perception of the Amway business differs depending on who you talk. There are as many opinions as there are people – the business – the products – the prices – the quality – you name it there is an opinion. Here in the Republic there is an ongoing debate ‘Rip off Ireland’ and it all centres around the pricing of goods and services – the difference between Sterling and Euro. Now with the pricing of products in the catalogues we can see again the glaring price difference. Now I know that companies buy their currency at least six months in advance and there is a small difference in VAT but let us go back to the title of this post again ‘Perceptions’. There is without doubt outrageously high profiteering going on in companies that have operations both in the UK and Republic of Ireland, the Central Bank has commented on it as well as consumer agencies. A number of ABOs have asked Amway to look at its pricing policy for the ROI but their explanations have short comings especially if we look at the US Dollar v Euro and Sterling v Euro. At a coffee meeting with ABOs the new priced catalogues were discussed and where pricing the products is welcomed it is seen as a disadvantage by some because the new catalogues show three price structures UK, Jersey and Guernsey, & Republic of Ireland. What are your opinions on ‘Perceptions’
