WHAT TYPE OF COOPERATIVE ARE WE?
There are many types of cooperatives. We are a Marketing Cooperative. More specifically, we use the building strategies of a business model that has been very successful for nearly 70 years, called network marketing or referral marketing. However, we do not participate in multi-level marketing. We design very unique 1 or 2 level affiliate compensation plans. We search for companies that have extraordinary products and services which have mass appeal.
