Why Systems Matter: Where WakeUpnow and MCA Leaders went Wrong

Let's talk about why systems matter for a few moments.

Way back in maybe, 2012 or so the network marketing industry was seeing a 'rise' of a new leadership team through the MCA opportunity. This is the roadside assistance income-based opportunity through TVCMatrix - that has been around for over 26 years; as a marketing arm for the 83+ year old company (MCA). That was a mouthful. But it's important to understand that distinction as well.

MCA Chose 'network marketing' to build their customer bases, after decades in business.

The TVCMatrix was their system, basically. It's an early introduction to why systems matter. They've always mattered in business. Robert Kiyosaki famously breaks this down in his book the Cashflow Quadrant (available at our 1mlmsystem bookstore). Business Owners (in the B quadrant) use systems. Systems matter because they provide leverage. For MCA, this allowed them to get rid of customer sales reps, and save money paying employees commissions to man the phones, or comb the yellow pages. Now, using a 'marketing arm' that pays based on performance, MCA has been able to continue doing business, in a pretty challenging marketplace, dominated by Automobile Club.

This is not about MCA though. It's about why Systems Matter. This is about a young team that 'rose up' primarily through the income opportunity provided by MCA. They leveraged a pretty massive team that they built in 'one opportunity' for, WakeUpNow. In other words ... they spent about a year building a pretty big 'network' in one company; then moved them over to another.

This is very common, and it's unfortunately what has harmed far too many network marketers.

This is why systems matter.

(Something similar happened with the UOP Leaders as well; when they were terminated from one opportunity, then asked their network to follow them into TLC - and what's crazy is UOP 'has systems' but, they were not set up Like OUR System; which keeps the 'future' in mind; and keeps the best interests of The Group in mind, at all times.)

I ran across a 'post' on IG ....

Lessons to be Learned (Why Systems Matter)

  • This is very important because it illustrates an important point. "Some" of the people who followed their MCA leaders into WakeUpNow decided to hang onto their MCA business. This was very smart for all who did. As we all know, WakeUpNow is No longer in business. This IG post is from 2014 - 2 years later MCA is still rocking; WakeUpNow is has almost been forgotten.
  • Leaders of WakeUpNow got sucked into the concept of 'going all in for A company'. They split their 'ties' with MCA.
  • Having no 'real system' in place to keep their MCA downline together, turned problematic when they 'added Wakeupnow' to the plate. Distributors (broke up their networks) leaving their MCA Sponsor's. No System was in place to keep the network aligned.
  • WakeUpNow crashed and burned; Smart marketers like this one are 'probably' Still earning money from MCA to this day; While those who put all their eggs into the WUN-basket; are mad at their shopping carts; because they got stuck with a lot of Thunder ....

I'm not throwing jabs.

I'm talking real business. When we set up our One MLM System 'to rule them all" at - and launched in 2012, I had already been through these things before. I know what happens when teams 'add' opportunities and do not make sure to keep the 'network' together. I know that too many times, people become Top income earners in the industry, only to end up No longer at the top when 'something changes' .....

We have to make our incomes MORE stable.

Our system is that solution. We put the focus on the industries and not on the companies. Our 1mlmsystem is designed to build a stable income for all who work with us.

We are just looking for the right people to help LEAD our team.

Are you 'The One' we are looking for?

I guess we'll find out.
