August 2007

Cover_2007_August This month’s issue is about Old School vs. New School Network Marketing. In the over 50 years that network marketing has been around, there has been some major changes to the approach on how it is taught. This month, we will look at some of those changes. Don’t miss this month’s interview with the queen of New School, Kim Klaver. Let us know your view of this subject, it matters to us!

We are excited about the launch of our new audio product called CoGo! This is short for Convention on the GO!

The CoGo is a tangible, usable MP3 player that allows you to listen to the audio articles that we provide monthly, and the audios throughout the archive issues as well. Never used or owned an MP3 player? No need to fret, because the CoGo comes PRE-LOADED with our audio articles, and we’ll also show you the easy steps to reload it each month with new narrations, trainings, and articles.

It will be very much like taking a convention with you everywhere you go! This small device can play back up to 12 hours of recorded audio, and can even be used to record your own voice or meetings you attend as well!

We are now teaming up with companies and large groups and pre-loading company trainings, company convention audios and other customizable audios on the COGO. If your company would like to discuss how we can team up with this great training tool just e-mail me or give me a call at 561-654-5974. As always, share with us your input on this month’s theme by emailing me at george@TheNetworkMarketingMagazine.com and enjoy the Back to School issue!

Aim High!
