It really is hard to understand what kind of company would look for new ways to nickle and dime their own reps! No one makes this decision on their own - it gets discussed with all the so-called "leaders".
Here are just a few examples: 1) When they decided to "offer" reps a new and improved back office service, they raised the monthly fee to $39.99. The fee increase does covers new things (pers growth info, etc), but it also covers some of the things you already were getting - until this change... If you wanted to continue with a full ACN Distributor Website featuring the business opportunity, videos, success stories, product information, lead management system, additional personalization, photos and more, you had to subscribe to "Your Business Assistant". So, fork over the extra fee and pay them $39.99 per month.
But wait, they weren't done!... 2)The latest "change" is to the Rep and IBO email accounts, which to this point had been provided by the company and YBA subscriptions. But now - they will only continue to provide acnibo.com email service for subscribers to Your Business Assistant! Once again, pay more, or get less - what a deal the leaders have come up with.
3) Ever notice how long it takes to get a check cut and mailed to you? This month, checks were cut on Friday 3/20 (even though they have all the numbers earlier in the week), and post-marked Tuesday 3/24 (look at your own check postmark). Many organizations cut checks, and mail them early so we have them in our hands by the date on the check. It's not only do-able, it's a pretty common practice.
So, why didn't everyone receive their March check from this company on 3/20 ????? It's not because they enjoy looking at a large pile of envelopes, but perhaps it's because the company gets the "float" on the total amount of these checks, for as long as they are outstanding. Float is like interest, the longer you have a balance earning interest, the more interest you get. In this case, they get all the float, at your expense...
4) You already know about the "bring your own device" program that didn't work, so now they offer you a "buy a used device from us" - if you want your phone to work, program. All you have to do is - yep - pay them more $$$.
Is this constant nickel and dime stuff any way to treat the people that are out there working hard for you??? I think not !!!
