A 3rd Party Review Of Ocean Avenue – Should You Join?

August 26, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Business

So there’s another network marketing program that’s getting ready to launch in a few weeks called Ocean Avenue. It certainly seems that there’s a new launch, or a new program in pre-launch, every quarter or so. Will Ocean Avenue be worth checking out or is it just more of the same hype that people are getting tired of? In this 3rd party review, I’ll attempt to cover some important information you’re going to need to know if you’re thinking about becoming a distributor.

Ocean Avenue Review – Who Is Ocean Avenue And What Are They Marketing?

If you’re thinking about joining, I think it’s critical to know the company’s background and what they’re actually selling. Without a solid platform and great products, the compensation plan is irrelevant. Most people get caught up in the income potential, and there’s obviously nothing wrong with that. But if you’re only looking at the compensation plan only, you’re making a business decision without having all the facts, and that’s just not wise. With that said, let’s first go into who is behind the company. At the helm are Co-Founders Fred Ninow and Ken Dunn. Both Ninow and Dunn have decorated business backgrounds and partnered before in another company called Max International. In 2006, Ninow started Max International leading it to $100,000,000 in sales in 3 short years. At the same time, former Canadian Police Officer, Kenn Dunn joined Max International and became the company’s #1 Income Earner leading a team of 300,000 sales reps. After taking a look at the rest of the corporate team, it certainly looks like they are positioned to be a player in the industry, as many of the corporate team members are bringing a ton of experience to the company.

As far as the products they’re selling goes, there are 5 different nutritional supplements including an antioxidant supplement, an anti-inflammatory supplement and an energy product. From a business perspective, it’s easy to see why the company is selling health products since the Health & Wellness Industry is one of the fastest growing and biggest industries in all of business. On top of that, it’s set to triple over the next ten years or so because Baby Boomers are getting older and they’re all looking for health products to feel and look better. It goes without saying that the products are very marketable, which is good to know if you’re looking to join.

Before going into the actual money you can make, I think it’s also interesting to note that the company also has a Travel & Vacation Club attached to it. While you’re not actually selling travel to retail customers, you can earn points for certain activities that you can redeem in your back-office for vacations for you and your family.

Ocean Avenue Review – How Do You Earn Income With Ocean Avenue?

In order to become a distributor, you have to purchase one of the company’s Life Packs, which range from $120 to $899, and then you have to maintain a monthly autoship. According to Dunn, the company’s compensation plan is actually a hybrid of an unilevel, binary and a matrix, and there are 9 different ways to get paid. Here’s my humble opinion on compensation plans: While everyone is fighting with each other over which compensation plan is the “best”, the reality is they’re all good, they all pay around the same percentage (about 50%-60% out to the field), and it’s all based on production. The bottom line is if you can produce (get customers and sign up other people to be distributors) and you can train other people to produce, you can make money in any company, any program, and with any compensation plan. That being said, Ocean Avenue does look to have a solid opportunity that provides immediate income, back-end residual income and rewards like travel and vacations for people who are productive. The point I’m making is instead of crunching numbers and over-analyzing the compensation plan, you should be more concerned about whether or not you’ll be a productive distributor. If the answer is “YES”, then you can certainly make a great income with Ocean Avenue.

Ocean Avenue Review – Should You Join?

In closing, Ocean Avenue certainly looks like a good company to join. The co-founders are experienced, the corporate team is solid, the products are marketable, and the compensation plan is lucrative. However, all of that doesn’t matter if you’re not productive. So the question you need to take some time to answer is: “Can you sign up other distributors and get retail customers?” If the thought of going to your warm market (again) is starting to make you heave right now, you need to start thinking about where else can you get leads. One of the most obvious places to get leads is the Internet. There are hundreds of millions of people everyday on Google, Facebook, Youtube and other social media sites that can be potential prospects for you. Sounds like you’ll have plenty of people to choose from and it should be super easy to build a downline, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. Without knowing how to effectively market yourself and generate leads, you’ll see little to no success, regardless of the hundreds of millions of people that are on the Internet. My suggestion is that you learn Attraction Marketing, and even if you are marketing mostly offline, you incorporate it into your business. If you can do that, you’ll have an endless stream of leads coming to you. And when you have more people coming to you than you know what to with, you have the potential of building a wildly prosperous business.

Success with your business requires a working knowledge of personal branding and lead generation. Learn to build your Ocean Avenue downline by being an Alpha Networker both offline and online.
