I'm Not a Geek, Zeek, or a Tweek. So what am I?
My response from forum post: Zeek Rewards - edited version
No offense to you Don, I was with a subscription based business (Empowerism) and did very well over the 12 years I was with them, and they just closed their doors recently.
Most are not going to make it with Zeeks and most people get the wrong impression that just because a website and opportunity is handed to them, it will be easier especially if it's an online only type of business opportunity or affiliate business and in actuality, it is 100 times tougher because of the such fierce competition online nowadays.
Plus most are not professional marketers and novice at best and if the big boys are having a hard time making a profit, how is the little guy marketing online with only a canned website and opportunity and no autoship for a bunch of "stuff"/junk most people don't need on a regular basis going to make it? And a subscription is always a hard sell too from my many years of experience doing exactly that with Empowerism.
On top of that, the commissions are way too low because if you do the math Don, a marketer would have to drive way too much traffic (even if fairly targeted) and way more than they can phantom for the most part to make a full time living even say 3 to 5K a month and that would be gross in most cases, so the net would be much less. For all the work involved, it's not worth the time and effort really.
The smart money goes with a Company in a real niche and first in the industry to offer healthy snacking alternatives and eventually Snackhealthy will have dozens if not hundreds of different snacks to offer, and there will always be something new, and new sells and so do snacks, but unfortunately most people eat the crap and junk you see at most convenient stores, and fast food places, and it is crap for the price (i.e way over priced to be killing yourself with food) to put it mildly.
And last but not least, what are you going to eat at Zeeks when you have an emergency? Right, nothing there to stock up on food wise, and emergencies require water, and food that can be stored and used over a long period of time, and Snack foods that are healthy to boot are great for such emergencies.
70% OF THE WORKING LASS IN THE NETWORK MARKETING INDUSTRY ARE WAHM (Work at Home Moms)
MOMS make Up 70% of the work at home industry. Most moms are not very tech savvy according to research and it's extensive btw, and they need the basics, how do I save on my monthly food bill and how do I make extra money from home. Snackhealthy answers both those calls in a big way because they are healthy for their children and great for after school snacks, lunches, in addition make a great tool for fundraisers for their kids school or baseball team, and their local community church or whatever local cause.
I could go on and on Don, but most "miss it" and miss the mark badly. They think if they have this website, and do a little social media marketing, they will be a star and a big money maker online without having to do any offline marketing and "leg work" or business networking or doing any real business, because they can hide behind their website and half hazard marketing campaigns if you want to call them that.
Yes, I'm no Zeek, geek or tweak Don, and I don't plan on being one soon, for very obvious reasons from a savvy business point of view. Anyway, make it a great Sunday, and maybe one day you'll see the Snackhealthy light and get out of where the masses are already, i.e. selling pretty much junk people can buy anywhere at a local BestBuy, OfficMax, WallMart, and CostCo store and most people want to touch, feel and handle the junk before they buy it too, so another Zeek drawback.
Snackhealthy goes 3.0 very Soon!
3.0 Snackhealthy websites coming soon for all Brand Partners even down to being able to add google analytics to individual pages, along with a top of the line CRM system, and phone scripts, blog and more than I want to go into here, but it should be crystal clear where Snackhealthy is going and as I stated in one of my blog posts, most people fall in love with a business concept or product but don't realize that curve has be long gone for a long time now and saturated beyond belief this day and age, and especially online, e.g. supplements for example, and mass shopping sites.
When I mention to anybody on the street that I'm a Healthy Snacks Distributor, the last thing they think of (if at all) is: he's trying to sell me a supplement and get me involved in a MLM scam. Unfortunately that's how most people think and it's not the defensive posture I want to start off with, and I don't have to now that I'm in the healthy snacking business.
And I don't have to mask Snackhealthy with a gimmicky "challenge" program, or throw money and expensive depreciating bucket of bolts (vehicles) at people, or other gimmicks to get them to try the snacks or even listen to my one minute presentation.
In other words, too much "HYPE" to get people excited to join in many of the other companies you see online in the same industry, and the others, well they are probably pretty much just coasting attempting to hold on to the distributors they have and in survivel mode and not really building much, and it hasn't changed since 1995 from the time I've been online.
