Note from Ty Tribble, MLM Blog Founder:
I am pleased to welcome a 40 year legend in Network Marketing, Art Meakin to our Pinnacle Group/Shaklee Team. Not long ago, I called Shaklee the best kept secret in Network Marketing, but the secret is starting to get out…
Here is the Press Release:
Dallas, Texas: Legendary networker, Art Meakin, began his official MLM Network Marketing career in 1975-1979 by joining Shaklee. Meakin’s initial exposure to Shaklee products was in 1969, at the age of 15, when his father brought home several Shaklee nutritional and home-care products recommended by a friend of the family.
Meakin is most well-known for the pioneering direct marketing mail-order promotions of the late 80’s and early 90’s with The Shocking Truth About™ MLM Network Marketing newsletter, magazine ads, post-cards, and the $100,000 Home-Based Business Manual. These promotions allowed Meakin to achieve the #1 Distributorship in 1994 with the J.R. Watkins company which was 125 years old when Meakin joined Watkins in 1990.
In 1998 Meakin started a MLM Network Marketing company providing lead generation, training, and unique generic recruiting systems to assist anyone in any networking company to build a successful sales organization. Utilizing Meakin’s direct marketing and Internet marketing techniques, within 90 days of launching, the company grew to over 56,000 associates. Meakin has an extensive successful resumé since 1975 not only full-time for 23 years as a networker in the field but has also held positions as CEO, President, Executive Vice President, VP Business Development, and IT Director for traditional and networking companies as well.
In May 2011, after 33 years since being involved with Shaklee initially, Meakin joined Shaklee again and began developing a leadership group, replicated marketing systems, and promotional plans (including Internet and traditional cooperative advertising with radio, TV, billboards, etc., to generate interest in Shaklee based on the “transfer-buying” concept… listen to radio spot at www.getpaidbetter.com ).
The decision to join Shaklee was based foremost on the stability of Shaklee being in business since 1956. Additionally, Shaklee has an established quality line of 300+ “transfer-buying” type products, the average customer purchases Shaklee products for 14 years, and an exceptional new compensation plan launched in October 2010. Shaklee has a young ambitious and visionary new owner, has the commitment of going into 50 countries over the next few years, and the company is supportive – progressive – innovative when it comes to marketing (direct marketing and Internet marketing).
When interviewed recently about the networking business model and the decision to join Shaklee, Meakin stated: “The MLM network marketing business model, potentially, has amazing promise for the person to independently leverage their time and earn an excellent part-time to full-time income from home. The challenge for most networkers today is finding a company that has the stability to provide the security of a solid income for the rest of our lives and at the same time… a company, sponsor, and upline that is innovative and visionary enough to offer an explosive opportunity for growth and progression. Shaklee is just that kind of company and I feel like I’ve come home… finally.”
