    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    bsc.

    I agree. I have meet some of the top earners in ambit because with me I want proof. Actually tonight in Lancaster one of my upline is who probably the number 7 or 8 top earner making about a million last year will be there doing the presentation and question and answer session.

    Yeah Brian McClure pushes on recruiting because it is the only way to create the kind of wealth they have. Last year his w2 was a little over 3 million. But I agree I think when he came from excel comm he ended up starting with a list of 100s or 1000s of potential consultants who had been in excel so thats a huge advantage.

    Chris Atkinson is my upline and he started as a Consultant and helps every time I call him.

    I think as with anything itis up to the person to make what they want of the business...

    Thats why I want to open a store front. Some banners and signs and let people come to me and ask about the free energy or anything. And then my consultants can come and build their business under me with me helping.

    Ambit pushes getting 3 consultants only and then helping those 3 get 3 and getting all the customer points.

    They toldme upfront you need 20 customer points to be eligable for all levels of pay and since I wanted free energy I needed 15 anyway and wanted a cushion so it only made sense to try and get 20-30 customers and teach people to do that first.

    Just my opinion and my way of approaching it. But like I said I am not looking to make 3million a year I would be happy with 3-4k a month residual...

    Your comment is a waste of space. It has no value or intelligent content. It is a comment I except from a 15 year old trying to get noticed. Please go to the corner and come up with something worth typing.

    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    Hey everybody....I joined Ambit in 2008 on the promise that they were coming to PA and got tired of waiting and the few people that I signed up didn't do anything and just lost money....

    Last year I found an Energy company that doesn't charge anything to join and doesn't charge for the website either. It is so much easier to sign people up and they will stay in longer too. And the compensation plan is better that the others, starts at $5 for a personal sign up. The owner hates the typical MLM and what they charge. So he is changing the industry. If you are interested let me know.....email is cobraallan at yahoo

    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    I have to say.
    There are tons of mlm companies and some have good and bad points. But thats life if we didn't compete with each other in a decent way we would never push ourselves to be better.

    BSC... I agree mostly but you don't have to have more than 20 customers to be paid a residual they just don't send you a check until the residual equals 10.00 so sometimes it would take 2 or 3 months to get a 10.00 check which is not a job or a paycheck. But again I don't focus on getting consultants. My first goal after becoming a consultant was to get my electricity for free as that in itself would pay more than I would ever invest in the company.

    Now I probably am not the norm since my bonus checks get put back into my consultants pockets. I look at this as a long term part time investment. So if I sign up a Consultant and they get the first 5 customer points and get their first check from Ambit I match it since I also get a check for their work so to me I am helping them see the fruits of their labor. It's no way to get rich by giving away your bonus checks but it does create some moral and customer base etc.

    I think people with unrealistic expectations quickly give up. My goal when I started was get my customers. Get 3 consultants help them get customers and then teach them to get 3 consultants and teach them to hand down customers to get them their first 20 customers. I want it to be worth working with me or you will loose everything.
    Right now Customers I get go to my downline. I direct them to their links until they get their 20 customers then I get another consultant and so on.

    The way the company was presented to me was get 3 consultants and 20 customers each then teach them to do the same but yeah alot of the big money makers say hey we got where we are by getting a hundred consultants and teaching them to get 10 and then to get 5 and so on. But many of them came from telecomm and had a list of 1000 people with disposable income to join up. I don't so slow and steady is my way...

    From posting here I have gotten emails trying to recruit me for another mlm company but upon 4 or 5 questions I found those oppurtunities to be a joke in my opinion..

    Challabon post the name of your company and alot of people will look into it. But letting people look into something and then let them approach you if they are interested it makes a sale much easier if someone comes to you wanting to know more.

    BSC from reading many of your post you would be a great Customer... If you ever have an interest in being a Customer let me know and there is NO COST and you can Still Earn your Free Electric..

    As far as new methods I would LOVE to learn new ideas for getting customers... Not to worried about consultants as those I can get but I want to make sure to get them customers quickly when I sign up consultants Iwant them to get paid..

    Currently I use CL, Ebay, working on You Tube, I have a squeeze page, I am considering placing ads on placemats but thats not cheap for 400,000 mats covering 15 restaurants.
    I have car magnets and lettering on my back window. My one consultant just got his first consultant so to reward him I had magnets made for his car as a gift to show him my support.

    I have looked into buying mlm leads but so many look to have been shopped around.

    I am sure many of you have been in this much longer than my month and a week so any info is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    Did you ever think of not putting yourself out there as an Ambit consultant? There are 120,000 other ambit consultants so why should I do business with you? What do you offer that's different than all the other consultants?

    How about talking about your own company and one of the services you offer is ambit.

    One of the things that pisses me off about MLM companies is that they don't let you do any basic marketing like telemarketing, cold calling, e-mailing, door-to-door. If you put yourself out there as bmdenergy, then you can market however you want.

    Just food for thought.

    bsc

    The reason why MLM companies preventing it's reps of from doing cold call telemarketing to promote their business is they are federal and state laws already in place that frowns people from doing so, unless people respond to the opportunity ad you placed it on flyer or the commercial ad spots on TV and Radio, etc...

    Many people has a do-not-call list in place. If you make a attempt to call these people on those list, you're gonna be in legal hot water. 5 years in jail and a $10,000 fine. emailing people about the opportunity is another red herring. Is called spamming, that's another legal headache nobody wants.


    Think man, think! If you don't like talking to people one on one about your opportunity, and you have a thin skin go along with it, then you need to hang up from doing any business opportunity period.

    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    I never said to do anything illegal. It is not illegal to do telemarketing, cold calling, and e-mailing if you follow the proper procedures. For example, telemarketing and cold calling to residences is by and large prohibited but calling businesses is fine.

    I assumed anyone reading this would understand that I do not advocate doing any illegal marketing.

    It's doesn't matter bsc. Rules are rules, like 'em or not. Many MLM companies has to abide those federal and state regulations in order to prevent legal problems down the road. That's why you have many other methods like to the internet, flyers, facebook and other social media to market your business. In the end, you have to do face to face with your prospects.

    If you have leads, they responded to an and they're not on the do-not-call list, the answer is yes.

    Re: The Truth About Ambit

    BSC. I buy and sell in my antique business. When I sell items through ebay I include a flyer to anyone in an area ambit covers. My flyer is more of a thank you and here is something I found and a way to save money. I think the problem with me is I don't mention being a consultant. I just like getting customers cause it helps people PERIOD.. Also the consultants I have are all business owners and I have created personalized flyers for them and helped them get a cheap banner and they put a card table in their store with a stack of flyers and when they make a sale everyone gets a flyer in their bag if there is one.

    I might not get wealthy but I will help alot of people.

    I guess thats what I personally offer that other reps don't.

    I have to admit I was just on a team call and it really upset me and I made a call to the rep who held the call. Basically it went like we have an event in March inDallas and some of the big money earners told some of their team if you can't make this even then you might not be serious about the business and if you aren't serious about the business I might not be able to answer calls for you if you need me cause I ( the big dollar earners ) don't feel you deserve my help if you can't dedicate yourself enough to go to all the events... To be honest really pissed me off...

    Look I have a life, kids, a business, Debt and just because I don't show up doesn't mean someone who has plenty of money and free time and goes to the event should be more important than me... Of course I made a call and expressed I was not happy about the comment and I got an appology..

    I believe in Ambit and in the idea of MLM if you do it with compassion not coming from the standpoint of greed.

    I will not EVER run my business like that. IF I GET YOU IN and You are part of my Team I am with you. If you need help and I can be there I will and hopefully the people I bring in will offer the same help to people they bring in.

    As for cold calls and telemarketing. There are solicitation laws enforced by the SEC I believe.

    Me personally I think if you put yourself out there and people come to you and ask about an oppurtunity it will be so much easier to sell it to them and express the good and Bad facts.

    I got a new Consultant today by telling him last week I would not sign him up until he had 10 customers ready to sign up prior... I explained that only maybe 1 out of 10 consultants will do some work to get their money back. Now granted I signed him up today and helped him put in all 10 of his customers on 3 way calling and then I sent him a personal check to match his first bonus check which I promised to do to my new consultants who show effort.

    I don't want people to chase a dream and trip and fall into a nightmare.

    My team motto is going to be. It's not about the money it's about the people.......

    I would love more suggestions on getting customers as I want a line of customers ready to go when I sign consultants because I want to help my consultants get paid. I think a check builds enthusiasm and a understanding that it takes work from them and me to make this work.

    Again any suggestions on ways to get customers is greatly appreciated.

    BSC: not sure if my prior post gave you a negative impression of me as that was not my intent. I had saw an old post from you asking about being a ambit customer. My statement was simply that I value my customers and if you are interested you are welcome as a valued customer if we offer service in your area. That is from ME not Ambit.
