On Wednesday, November 16th, Market America’s Vice President of Internet Marketing and Social Media, Steve Ashley, had the opportunity to speak at the 2011 Internet Summit in Raleigh, NC. The Internet Summit is a gathering of internet executives, marketers, digital professionals, entrepreneurs, and investors who come from far and wide to hear industry experts discuss everything from Social Media to Analytics.
This year’s Summit boasted an impressive list of speakers, with representatives from companies such as Google, Twitpic, TheLadders, and ESPN among others. The keynote speaker for this year’s event was none other than two-time New York Times Bestselling author, Gary Vaynerchuk – also known as the “King of Social Media.”
Steve has kept Market America on the cutting edge of mobile commerce, and because of this he was a perfect choice to speak on the subject at this year’s Internet Summit. Read More
As one of the Market America’s original distributors, Dr. Peggy Wooten has been a regular at every Product Symposium. As someone who’s seen the Symposium evolve over the years, Dr. Wooten provides a unique perspective of this year’s Product Symposium -particularly in regards to the new format. This year’s Symposium adds a twist – with presentations that explain how to most effectively market and sell our products against the competition. Dr. Wooten had this to say about the Symposium’s new format:
“The Product Symposium in the past, in my opinion, was a lot of heavy-science – with manufacturers presenting information. I did like that part, but I don’t think everyone needed to be there. Read More
The Taiwan Leadership School was off to an auspicious start on Friday, 11-11-11. While many view 11-11-11 as a lucky date, we all know luck is when preparedness meets opportunity – and they definitely collided in Taiwan this weekend.
Some 25,000 UFOs gathered in the largest venue in Taiwan to experience this incredible event, which ends today. The Leadership School has been a tremendous success, illustrating the incredible explosion of growth occurring in Taiwan today.
One highlight of the event was Joanne Hse being recognized for achieving International Field President – meaning she earns over $100k a month! As always, Dennis Franks dazzled them with his magic, and kept the crowd involved and energized. Read More
At Market America and SHOP.COM, we put a tremendous value on the concept of entrepreneurism. To us, entrepreneurism is the cornerstone of the American Dream, and provides financial and time freedom to those who are willing to work hard. While it takes dedication and commitment to excel as an entrepreneur – the sacrifices we make are nothing compared to the sacrifices made by America’s military veterans.
Today, we honor the courage, commitment, and sacrifice made by the brave men and women of the armed forces. Without you, we would not have the platform of freedom which allows entrepreneurs to thrive. You have answered the call, and have made the security of our nation your personal responsibility.

To be sure, as a 32 year old guy with no kids and absolutely no sense of fashion, I felt a little out of place in the Girls’ section of the department store. Looking rather lost, I awkwardly stumbled my way past racks of pink and purple jackets and tiny shirts covered with bunny rabbits and rainbows. “OK”, I thought, “I’m clearly out of my element here, and I need to enlist the help of someone in the know. I need a pint-sized fashionista.”
I looked down at the piece of crumpled paper in my hand, which read “Janaya, size 4” – and wondered to myself what size I would I be if they handed out numbers like that for men – but never mind, I’m getting sidetracked. Read More
