Earn and Keep More of Your
Money Through an AMSOIL Dealership
Multi-level marketing (MLM) has
come a long way since its beginning in the 1940s,
when California Vitamins introduced the concept as
a way to market their nutritional products. Amway
evolved directly out of California Vitamins, selling
soap products through independent distributors who
got paid through commissions, as well as through the
sponsorship of new distributors. Today, multi-level
marketing is a $20 billion industry, and it continues
to grow at a rapid pace.
MLM companies have come and gone
over the years, with only the solid, reputable ones
surviving in the long term. Today, high quality products,
good company support for dealers and a solid reputation
for integrity are still the traits found in successful
Significant MLM Benefits
People become involved in multi-level marketing for
different reasons. Unlike starting one's own, independent
business, the start-up cost for entering an MLM opportunity
is minimal, often requiring little more than your
time and hard work. The opportunity to be one's own
boss also appeals to many people. You can put as much
time and effort into your business as you see fit.
You may decide to just work it part time or you may
jump into the opportunity full force.
People living on a fixed income
find good MLM opportunities especially appealing.
As many retired people find Social Security benefits
inadequate to live on, many have found themselves
in need of acquiring additional income. Getting involved
with a solid MLM company is the perfect way, as it
affords retired people the luxury of working their
own hours, while also giving them the money and time
to enjoy their golden years.
People looking ahead to retirement
also find MLM opportunities particularly attractive.
Building a healthy MLM organization now ensures a
healthy residual income for the future. MLM opportunities
also give people something many jobs cannot: job security.
A recent slowing down of the American economy has
people worried about their current positions. Getting
started in an MLM opportunity gives people something
to fall back on should their job be in jeopardy. It
gives people peace of mind that their family's needs
will be taken care of.
A New Incentive
Today, tax incentives have emerged as yet another
significant reason to jump into multi-level marketing.
Because working Americans setting up home businesses
can easily save an average of $5,000 in taxes they
pay on their current income, the "tax incentive"
angle is a significant selling point in attempts to
register new AMSOIL Dealers and is an excellent reason
for Preferred Customers to upgrade to Dealer status.
(To become an AMSOIL Dealer, Preferred Customers can
call 1-800-777-7094 and ask for a Preferred Customer
Upgrade Form or print and fill out the form in the
"Preferred Customer Orders" section of the
AMSOIL corporate website.) Virtually all Americans
are seeking Multi-level marketing (MLM) some kind
of tax relief, and self-employed business people have
more tax deductions available to them than any other
legal entity. The tax savings are immediate, starting
the day a person signs up.
According to Direct Sales Journal,
the following is just some of the tax relief home-based
business owners enjoy:
- All medical expenses can be converted into business
deductions and written off at 100 percent. The average
tax benefit here is $2,500 per year.
- The average home-office deduction is $2,400.
- Home-business owners can hire their children and
pay them up to $4,500 in wages per child, and write
it off in full as a business expense.
By adding these three incentives
together, a qualifying family of five could potentially
have a total of $18,400 in additional tax writeoffs.
An MLM business owner could also immediately keep
an additional $400 to $600 a month from his or her
