Soul Purpose Network Marketing Company Review

The first thing we did when looking into the Soul Purpose Network Marketing Company is a Whois Search through Network Solutions. It appears the domain name was originally registered in May of 2003 so this program is still relatively new. This company appears to be based out of New Hampshire although the domain contact is based out of Merced, CA. at least at the time of this review. We also discovered that Nadine A. Thompson is the current CEO & Founder.

Soul Purpose specializes in offering an affordable MLM Opportunity to minorities that are aspiring to be Entrepreneurs. They specialize is Health, Wellness and a variety of Beauty products. They also specialize in offering Nutritional Supplements as well as holistic treatments that assist in everyday health. They even have a range of motivational products they sell. They work with men and women in Foreign Countries as well as minorities in the United States in an attempt to fill that niche many other programs have neglected.

Although anyone is welcome to join Soul Purpose, their focus is on African American, Latino, Asian and Indian women. This company is determined to be a leader in Health and Beauty products in the United States. They also want to create Entrepreneurship Opportunities through Direct Sales and Sophisticated Marketing Networks while preserving their social values and high standards. And in addition to this they want to stay “green” as they keep growing through the years, meaning environmentally friendly.

They do this by implementing things like Recycled Paper and Vegetable Based Inks for some of their products. The navigation on the corporate website was tough. I couldn’t use the scroll bars on the right so I wasn’t able to read the entire site, even after minimizing the window. Rumor also has it they’ve partnered with Youngevity. After some more digging beyond the main company website I did discover they had an additional website that are basically rep websites. IMHO they look 1,000% better than the Soul Purpose Company Websites.

Although I did see some technical flaws, but keep in mind I’m highly trained to point out the smallest anomaly in a website as a former Beta Tester of dozens of high end software applications. Just by referring people into the program you can receive up to 75% off your personal order. I also notice on the rep site they have a small 8 page pdf guide that talks more about not only the mission of the company but the products they offer as well.

The first thing they want you to do is to signup for a 100PBV order. Next they want you to go out and sponsor 7 customers. After that they want you to sponsor 7 Business Builders which they call Lifestyle Entprereneurs. Then they want you to Host 7 Lifestyle Parties. As of the time of this writing they also have training calls on Tuesdays. We weren’t able to find any complaints on this company based on our research. It looks pretty good to go as far as we can tell. If you can isolate a good mentor go ahead and jump on it.

Why Your App Developer Should Provide You A Digital Marketing Plan, Not Just A Mobile App

When selecting an app developer to work on your next iPhone, iPad or Android mobile App project, individuals, businesses and brands need to consider what value add each developer offers to maximize both App appeal and App reach. Without both your shiny new App may never be found, downloaded or used.

These concepts are not new and herald back to 1960 when the late Theodore Levitt first published his article in the Harvard Business Review called Marketing Myopia. Incidentally when the Harvard Business Review republished this article in 2004 it was proclaimed as the most important marketing game changer for marketing in the last half century, so take note!

Many App developers limit themselves and their customer’ potential by improperly defining their purpose. That is, by calling themselves an App developer they are implying that they create a specific limited product – Apps.

As customers make the app developer selection process engaging with a company that defines itself so narrowly and misunderstanding so completely what business they are really in, can have the effect of also limiting the App’s appeal to the target market because of an implicit misunderstanding of their purpose in the value creation chain.

After all, if all you do is develop apps, how can you possibly understand the intricacies and nuances of the app to the ideal user and create an app that solves that compelling need or problem for these users?

What do App Developers And Railroads Have In Common?

When customers use an App they don’t want to use an app they want to be entertained, productive, make their lives easier, communicate or maybe all of these at the same time – quickly and easily.

To look at this another way look to Levitts HBR article and the analysis of the plight of the American Railroads in the early 20th century where a once growing industry become stagnant and endangered.

The need for railroads did not decline because the need for passenger transportation declined, and not because the need was filled by others such as cars, buses and planes. Rather, the railroad let others take their customers away because they assumed they were in the railroad business rather than the transportation business.

Taking this into the 21st century perspective, web developers should not view app developers as a threat, rather marketing companies should see app developers who are using Apps as the spearhead of comprehensive digital marketing plans as the most severe threat since web and mobile marketing evolved as a business.

And this is what you should look for as a customer when choosing an app developer. A company that can provide you a well developed, good looking easy to use app which meets the needs of the ideal user within your budget and the ability to understand how to position this app at the apex of a digital marketing assault with the provision and execution of a comprehensive digital marketing plan.

How Does Digital Marketing Know-How Help With App Creation?

The purpose of marketing is to identify and communicate the value of your business or brand’s products and services to your customers, fans and followers and cause sales. In short marketing should help customers discover, create, arouse and satisfy your customer’s needs.

Clearly, a mobile developer that provides coding and mobile application asset creation such as graphics and sound, display none of the marketing musts and both limit their businesses potential for growth as well as your Apps positioning.

The App developers view the marketing effort as a necessary consequence of the product – not – vice versa as it should be. So in fact when contracting an app developer to make an app for your business or brand your mindset and that of your chosen app developer should be focused on how to position that App at the apex of your digital marketing assault rather than how to market the App.

The developer that you select needs to communicate to you how it thinks of itself as taking care of customers marketing needs, not writing code and creating graphics to combine into a piece of software. The real problem the app developer solves for the customer is satisfaction of his or her deepest need – creating value that the customer needs in exchange for the App product at a fair price.

Good App developers are not in the app making business they are in the Digital Marketing business, or at least they should be if you are going to engage them to meet your customers needs.

OneBode Network Marketing Company Review

The OneBode company domain was registered at the end of July 2006. They appear to be located in Tucson, AZ. As of the time of this writing it appears that Tylene Megley and Sean Loomer are the Founders and Sean Loomers info is on the whois records. This company is another relatively new Network Marketing Company to hit the Internet in the last couple years. They specialize in Holistic Healing and are building their enterprise around the need for customers to have quick access to quality supplements. They offer quality nutrients backed by intensive research that are proven to wholly support the body.

The theory of OneBode is that if you supply your body with the best nutrients right from the start, you won’t get sick in the first place. Just remember that when promoting this company that you are a business owner and not just a Sales Person. I’ve taught for years that sales is not a dirty word, and it’s not. In fact the only people who think it is are the people who aren’t making many sales in the first place. You can take the companies training or you can get free training online.

People write free articles on Network Marketing Training all the time. In fact, I just watched a great video on Mefeedia by a Jonathan Budd who stays on the cutting edge of Network Marketing. He made a great video showing you different tools you can make to grow your business. All I’m saying is that if a company you join has a killer comp plan, and you get a great upline sponsor. He might not be the marketing fanatic you dream of but if he’s just helpful, you can always acquire training for this program wherever you wish. That’s the thing I think most of us Network Marketers forget about a lot is the fact that we all have choices. Sometimes when we’re frustrated however or in lazy mode we forget that.

So if you do decide to join OneBode, start cultivating yourself as a Network Marketer from day one. Let your upline know you are serious and allow their information to soak in, but at the same time go off on your own and find other successful mentors to help you. Notice I said successful, I recommend that as a general rule you don’t follow people who are struggling because in most cases they won’t be of much help even though their intentions may be good. I’m not saying your direct sponsor has to be a major success, as long as someone in your upline is you should be good to go.

The products they offer are Define, Blend, AO, Escalate, Essential and Build. All of these products have some sort of holistic healing potential, and there are millions and millions of people every year, and this is no exaggeration, who purchase these products for what they can do for them and how they can help them live a more fulfilling life.
