Twenty months ago Market America acquired SHOP.COM in a move that will forever change the future of our company, as well as the lives of thousands of our hard-working Shop Consultants around the world. Now, the true impact of this acquisition will begin to take shape.
On Monday, September 17th, SHOP.COM will become the official consumer-facing site for our company, while marketamerica.com will become an incredible recruiting tool for Shop Consultants and prospective business partners to utilize.
Fortune 500 companies utilize their corporate sites to deliver valuable information to potential investors, and while Market America might not have investors per say – we know our Shop Consultants and their prospects need a central location to learn more about the amazing things we are accomplishing as a company.
The new marketamerica.com will not only highlight the success of our Shop Consultants and UnFranchise® Owners, but it will also help them establish credibility and validity in the field – because it will present information that reinforces what they have already presented to their prospects. Potential business partners will find all the information they need on the new marketamerica.com, making it that much easier for them to learn about this remarkable business and many of our key concepts.
One of the most important aspects of the changes occurring on Monday is the fact that SHOP.COM will now become the official consumer-facing storefront for our amazing business. That’s right, your customers will no longer be able to purchase products from marketamerica.com. Rather, they will visit the new, enhanced SHOP.COM for all purchases.
We did this to arm our Shop Consultants with the absolute best tools for success, and we feel that by providing our Shop Consultants with SHOP.COM storefronts we are helping them tap into the most powerful shopping URL in the world!
Over the course of the next few months we’ll continue to unveil a host of improvements and upgrades to our sites, as we continuously strive to provide the best possible shopping experience online!
