CM held a webinar today and released more details about the new company that will (hopefully) be bringing back our beloved CM albums! This call was about the business side of things – how the company will be structured & how people can make money selling their products.
The call was recorded & will be available soon.
Until then, here are the basics:
THIS is what I’ve been hoping to see – a commitment to quality!
The new seal that CM will be using, showing their commitment to producing photo safe products you can trust:
CM will do testing in house but will also use an outside lab that they will use when they cant test themselves in house.
Income Opportunity – A Hybrid
CM wants to have a fresh approach that will work for the field. They ask us to open our minds to the new opportunity. They’re getting rid of some old beliefs and keeping the best.
CM mentioned that they reserve the right to adjust this plan as they go along & make adjustments as needed.
There are only going to be 2 ways to purchase from CM – Customers & Advisors, There will be no preferred customers as mentioned in a previous call.
The $49 annual fee is for12 months. There are NO ordering minimums - only the annual fee.
This will be a ROLLING 12 month period. Beginning from when you sign up.
Advisor’s discount/profit will vary based on their sales volume. Advisors will have the opportunity to earn account credits, earn on advisors that sign up under you. Advisors can create teams
Team would be one level deep, I believe. You can sign up as many as you like under you.
The role of an upline advisor is likely to be different. Not as much training or coaching will be needed - or trying to help people get to various levels. This will be more about sharing ideas, encouragement, making this more FUN and easier to be an upline.
NO GROUP OR PERSONAL VOLUME REQUIREMENTS!!
Looks like people will be able to sign up with CM as Advisors at the end of October (for the US right now – Most of Canada will need to wait while they wade through legal stuff) and we will be able to order at that time. Some bookcloth albums will not be available until November. The majority of products will be available at the end of October. early November.
CM is going to be much more web friendly, advisors will be able to share blog posts that will be on the website. Lots of features being developed for the website; it will be searchable, will have a wish list, a blog, view products by categories.
CM will have competitive shipping rates & no extra charges for direct ship.
LOTS to digest – I’m very excited about the simpler business plan. Thinking I might again be a CM
