Going, Going, Gone – Escapeartist has discovered a startup company that is doing it, and in a BIG way.
One of greatest obstacle to realizing your “Escapeartist Dreams” is being able to support yourself when you live in another country. So many people want to live internationally, but simply do not have the means to support themselves. Over the last decade we have witnessed expats realize these dreams successfully and we have seen others crash and burn.
The internet and the proliferation of income opportunities online is a game-changer and has opened a whole new world of possibilities for the readers of Escapeartist. The vehicle to realize your dreams has a prefix of “www”, and the ability to earn money anywhere in the world with a computer and an internet connection is available to everyone.
Show me the opportunity…
With all the online opportunities, how do you find the right one to get involved in, what are keys to success in picking the right company, what products are hot and how do you build your business once you have launched your new venture. These are all questions that you can get answered and more through a new section of Escapeartist, called Overseas Home Business that we are planning to launch in March of 2010. (If you are interested in collaborating on this new subsection of our site please send us an email).
Let’s Talk Gold and Silver…
One of the early stage companies that Escapeartist has identified and reviewed is Numis Network. This company is pioneering the sale of graded silver and gold numismatic coins through the network marketing industry. To our knowledge, graded numismatic collectible silver and gold coins have never been sold through this method before.
The Numis Network is a relatively new concept in network marketing. They are tapping into the graded gold & silver coin collection industry and adding a network marketing compensation plan to it.
Mezack, Ian Cordell and Christopher Kent, all have had extensive direct sales experience with Mike currently selling graded coins on TV! These gentlemen have over 20 years experience running sales and direct marketing companies. Numis Network’s management team passes our test for experience and leadership in the network marketing industry.
Certified coin sales is a massive $10 billion business in North America and over $120 billion globally. With its explosive growth over recent years it can be a very profitable business to be involved with.
Maybe you have not heard of a ‘graded coin’ before, In a nutshell it’s a regular bullion coin issued by the US (or any other) government that has been certified for authenticity by an independent third party, it’s value depends on several different things like purity and weight. To prepare it for sale it’s then sealed into a container.
Timing is a two edge sword, it can position you to make a windfall of money if you are in on the ground floor, or you can go down with the ship if the company goes down like the Titanic. Numis is an early stage company, so as we always say buyer beware, or at least do not invest more than you can afford to lose. Just as in surfing, you have a choice; miss the wave, ride the wave, or get crushed by the wave!
Unfortunately we cannot predict the future of any company, but this one meets our four criteria; good product, strong management, great timing and a decent compensation plan.
According to the marketing department of Numis spin masters, “silver and gold have always been at the heart of mankind’s desire for beauty and wealth. In fact, the quest to acquire and accumulate these precious metals seems to be encoded into our DNA”. Well that sounds good, but, it is also human nature to collect things. Numis’s celebrity numismatic expert Mike Mezack says, “If you are going to collect something, it might as well be money!”. This is exactly what Numis Network is all about, helping people collect the most precious and valuable money of all… silver and gold numismatic coins. By purchasing and accumulating graded, silver and gold numismatic coins, you too can “Create Wealth, Collect Wealth, and Preserve Wealth”.
The vision of Numis is to become the largest retailer in the world of these certified and graded precious metal coins by creating this new industry category. They have a stated global mission of helping people create wealth, collect wealth, and preserve wealth with a home-based business in the silver and gold numismatic industry, which is a fairly boilerplate message for most ambitious start up network marketing companies.
The fact is that the industry might be ripe for explosive growth and the trend is picking up steam. The reason the industry is positioned for growth is that, due to the worldwide recession, many people no longer trust traditional currencies and gold and silver represent real value, or do they? People have speculated for centuries that the price of precious metals are going to skyrocket and some are taking advantage of the rise in prices by owning their own piece of the pie. Some call it asset diversification, the zealots tell you the sky is falling. You will have to be your own judge on this one. One piece of advice is this, make sure you know the difference between a collectible numismatic coin and a bullion coin, as some consumers confuse the two and purchase a bullion coin when they really intended to purchase a numismatic collector’s coin.
Ok, the pitch sounds good, but is it real?
So the question is, why network marketing, does the world really need another network marketing company? To be fair, network marketing is a means of distribution that allows you to earn income from the efforts of many. It’s through this ‘leveraging’ of your time that allows you to earn unlimited income; income that can continue to flow even when you are not working. Truth be told, a small percentage of people make a lot of money in network marketing, a few make a little, and a lot spend more than they make.
Some of the benefits of network marketing include: being able to set your own hours, the ability to earn unlimited income, low start up cost, and no stocking of inventory – just to name a few. Of course, you can have fun and make a lot of new friends, while you earn money too!…if you work hard and promote a system that is duplicable. Network marketing is definitely not get rich quick and easy, but it provides hope and can be a great training ground for many naïve entrepreneurs.
Honestly, what makes network marketing so successful is that the model on paper makes sense, but it is the dream and the inspirational meetings that are the magnets that attract most entrepreneurs. It has been said that many network marketing companies pay their distributors with recognition, inspiration and the power of hope. I have to say that in many cases that these things are better than money, but to people without money they are less motivating.
Numis has created a buzz online recently because many top online marketers like Riccardo Ferrari are involved in the business. Escapeartist, interviewed Mr. Ferrari and asked the important questions that pertain to our selection criteria. Mr. Ferrari, a more than accomplished network marketer who has hung his hat on Numis had many good things to say and seemed authentic in his commitment to Numis. Judging by his experience in recruiting organizations exceeding 250,000 people and earning seven figures, Mr. Ferrari, is clearly in the top 1% of the network marketing industry.
Here is a little bio on a man that says he wants to help Escapeartist and its readers become successful with Numis: (This was taken from his personal blog)
Mr. Ferrari’s story:
In the 80’s — Was a multiple six-figure earner in a prominent California based company, which today is publicly traded and grossing $1.6 billion yearly.
1992 — Became the #1 earner in a Florida based direct marketing company. Along with my leadership team, acquired 90,000 affiliates/customers and generated around $400 million in sales in 8 years.
1999 — Became the #1 earner, recruiter and corporate trainer with a Tampa-based Telecommunication Company, which became a publicly traded, $500 million dollar company in less than 3 years. This company was eventually sold and switched to non-referral marketing model.
2002 — Developed an Internet system that, in only 6 months, led it to become the fastest growing affiliate (acquiring nearly 30,000 customers) in a $100 million media company. Today, this business still produces nearly $1,000,000 in yearly sales.
In the same year, he developed a web system and became the #1 enroller and $20,000 a week earner in a Florida based e-commerce company, which today has six million members.
2006 — In a little over a year, through Internet marketing, he became the cumulative #1 earner, acquired 190,000 reps and earned nearly $900,000 in royalties, with a health energy beverage manufactured in Dallas, TX. This program is currently producing millions in yearly sales.
2009 – He is currently involved in Internet direct marketing earning as much as $800 a day (with peaks at $2,800 a day) while still enjoying the residuals from his past ventures.
Mr. Ferrari considers himself fortunate and blessed for the ability to fully live the American Dream and he attributes his success to helping and teaching other entrepreneurs how to succeed in business and living their dreams as well.
If you are truly motivated to succeed in online network marketing, Escapeartist with its global audience, and the decades of experience that Mr. Ferrari brings to the table, might just be the lucky combination that you are looking for.
