I am not affiliated with this company but took the time to review Lightyear Wireless for anybody doing their due diligence.
Lightyear Wireless is a new MLM telecomm company based in Louisville, Kentucky.
Lightyear's parent company is a publicly traded company called Lightyear Network Solutions which launched in 1993 and was founded by Sherman Henderson.
Lightyear Wireless reps sell cell phones and offer wireless phone plans through a partnership with the Verizon and Sprint networks.
The basic idea of the business opportunity is that members will receive up to a 10% commission per month off of the wireless phone bill of everybody that they refer to the company.
Lightyear Wireless is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator or MVNO.
An MVNO company provides a wireless mobile phone service but doesn't own any licensed frequencies, and usually does not have the basic facilities to run and operate a mobile phone service.
MVNO companies can basically be referred to as a reseller.
The Marketing Tools Once you enrol as a Lightyear representative, you will receive a recruiting website, a retail website, and access to the company's main site, where you will find additional products.
The Lightyear marketing materials consist of brochures, flyers, banner ads, auto-responders and tracking software.
However, some of the marketing tools are only available if you sign up with Lightyear under the 'Gold' package.
How To Get Started The basic cost to enrol with Lightyear is $49.
99 for the sales kit.
This sales kit includes your first month of the internet marketing suite and qualifies you for the opportunity to make commissions.
For $299, reps may enroll with the 'Gold' package which includes the marketing suite, qualifies you for all commission opportunities, plus all of the company's marketing tools and materials.
Reps that get started with the Gold package are given the tittle of 'Senior Manager'.
There is also an additional fee of $25 for website activation.
How To Succeed Although the company does provide some marketing material, to truly be successful with Lightyear Wireless or any other network marketing company for that matter, you need to understand MARKETING.
If you do not know how to market and get TRAFFIC to your Lightyear Wireless websites, your business will not grow and you will not make any money.
Learning how to market your business is the most important aspect of building a successful and profitable business.
