Learn the Truth about whether or not there is a 5Linx Scam by watching the video below!
5LINX – The company
5Linx was founded back in 2001 by Craig Jerabeck.
The 5Linx headquarters is located in Rochester, NY. It is a U.S based company and currently is doing business in the U.S, Canada and Mexico by what I could see on their site. They are a rapidly growing company and are also a member of the Direct Selling Association which it the regulatories of the MLM or Direct Selling Industry.
There are only about 250 companies that are members of the DSA out of over 5,000 MLM companies. So this is a pretty big deal and worthy of noting when choosing a MLM company.
5LINX – The Leadership Team
When it comes to choosing a company it is very important to consider who is leading it.
“Show me who your are following and I will show you where your going”
I’m sure you have heard of that old adage but it is very true and when it comes to leadership I do see 5Linx is one of few companies that really do have a amazing leadership team with loads of experience. 5Linx was founded by Craig Jerabeck he is the companies CEO and President. He has a lot of experience in the telecommunications.
Jeb Tyler (Executive Vice President of Marketing) and Jason Guck (Executive Vice President of Sales) are also some of the best brains behind this company. With extensive back grounds in MLM and telecommunications. It’s a great combination!
The 5Linx Leadership looks good!
5LINX – The Products
The 5Linx Product line consists of 13 different products or services as of the time I am writing this article. The have a pretty impressive product line including 5Linx Energy, 5Linx Velocity V2, TextAlertz, GlobalLinx VoIP, Business Elite 5Linx Package, 5Linx Data Vault, 5Linx PowerPlay, 5Linx Satellite TV, 5Linx Internet and Fiber TV, 5Linx Payment Solutions, 5Linx Mobile, Security Systems and 5Linx ID Guard.
I really do like such a broad spectrum of services and products they have a little bit of something for everyone which is key when creating a strong residual income. The only problem I see is that when approaching people to switch carriers even if it’s for their own good they are often very skeptical.
It’s almost as if they see their energy companies and cell phone companies like government agencies and anything else would be illegal. I know from experience but this is often true when it comes to the industry. People are just skeptical which is why I am going to teach you here in a bit how to fish for people that are actually looking for your information which solves the industries biggest problem which is lead generation.
5LINX – The Compensation Plan
You can start a 5Linx business with a minimal investment of $99 plus $497 for the products and services. They also have a customer program as well but i will not be going into how that all works since the purpose of this post is to ensure your success with the business opportunity itself. Consider the initial $99 and $497 to start your 5Linx business your deposit and hewn of course you will have to pay rent which would be your auto-purchase or cost to fo business.
5Linx pays out 8 different ways and has plenty of perks like a car program and incentive trips. They pay out long term residuals and of course fast startcommissions when you sponsor someone to the business. At a glance it may appear easy to be paid and honestly the compensation plan is pretty lucrative.
So then why you might be thinking does their income disclosure say that only a bit over 90% of the reps with this company are earning money? The answer may SHOCK you!
5LINX Scam or NOT?
The Leadership is experienced, the products or services are marketable, and the compensation plan is legit. However all of that really doesn’t matter if you’re not consistent and haven’t any skills to succeed. Many people come into MLM and think because they joined success will just happen and that is always not the case. You have to treat your business like a real business with you being the CEO. Bottom line this is a viable business and is definitely not a scam!
5LINX – Your #1 Problem
Many people trying to recruit you will tell you anything they think you might want to here to get you to join them in their business. This is scary because they’ll tell you what they do is easy and the products or services sell themselves etc.
These are lies! Although you won’t be under a car with a blow torch you will have to talk to people and ask them to join you. For example let’s say you talk to 5 of your friends and ask them to show up to a meeting, 0 to 1 of them will actually show up. Success in MLM is a numbers game! 90% of the people you talk to are going to say NOooo!
Another example if your products or services sold themselves the company wouldn’t need you! I assure you that if you were to put your products out on a table in your front yard no one would even stop to look, let alone buy. It is your job to not only get the word out but close the sales.
Most people fail at MLM because they are recruited wrong! They are not informed that success never comes easy and that anything worth having will take time. Expect about 2 to 5 years to fully launch your plane. This is more realistic and is the industry statistic for those that stick it out.
People that frown at that I ask them if they were to continue doing what they are currently doing right now for the next 5 years would their lives be any different 5 years from now?
More than likely their response is NO! The plan that they are working today is not going to change their path! I applaud you for seeking something better for yourself and your family! Only about 2% of the population make it a point to seek out other options to make their lives better.
The fortunes are made in this industry by the people that get creative and learn how to sift through the numbers very quickly! In the beginning this can be tough because you only have so much warm market. I know it was for me. I failed miserably until I was able to master the skill of Online Network Marketing recruiting.
You really need no creativity with what I am going to show you here in second! You only need to know that you need to invest in your skill-set to succeed with 5Linx or with any company for that matter.
Leads are the name of the game and with out them your 5Linx business will be dead in the water. Watch the video below to gain instant access to my 6 Figures Online Success Blueprint
