ACN and LegalShield (Pre-Paid Legal) would easily fit into a Blue’s Clues song “one of these things is not like the other” since they are two completely different products but they do have a couple of things in common:
They are both successful network marketing companies
They are not wellness and nutrition companies, which make up a huge part of the MLM industry
Who Are ACN And LegalShield (Pre-Paid Legal)?
ACN, or American Communications Network, bills itself as world’s largest direct seller of telecommunications and essential services for home and business. ACN has been around for 18 years, which makes it a mature network marketing company and operates in 23 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific.
As one of the first companies in the United States organized solely to design, underwrite and market legal expense plans to consumers, LegalShield (formerly Pre-Paid Legal) has been in business for nearly 40 years and now provides legal services to over 1.4 million families across the U.S. and Canada. For one low monthly fee these legal expense plans, or memberships, offer a variety of legal services in a way similar to medical reimbursement plans or HMOs.
Both ACN and LegalShield/Pre-Paid Legal have solid histories and offer potential to any person who wants to earn money as a network marketer.
ACN distributors would have the luxury of approaching prospects about services they “already use” like digital phone, internet, long distance, wireless, television, home security and home automation. In a world growing more technical, and dependent on digital communication and entertainment, this is an expanding market.
LegalShield/Pre-Paid Legal distributors can offer a much-needed preventive service since most people cringe at the thought of engaging an attorney and the cost involved. There are a number of unlimited services, like calling an attorney with questions, and valuable free services like will preparation.
Both companies run on a sound business model with proven compensation plans. Both have been around long enough to prove that they are well-run and profitable companies.
Which Company Is The One For Me?
It comes down to personal choice. Do you get more excited about technology or helping people protect their assets? Your choice may be a simple as your impression of your sponsor or up-line or the resources offered to help you grow your business.
One thing is for certain, your friends and family won’t keep you busy for very long and probably won’t allow you to grow your business to the point it makes any real money for you. For that, you need to leverage the internet and master lead generation.
