5 Reasons Network Marketing May Be the Perfect Business Model

Low Start-Up Cost – Whether you earn a top executive income working for a corporation or you are a stay-at-home parent, the initial expense to get up and running fits almost anyone’s budget. This is one of the biggest reasons the industry has grown exponentially over the last 10 years. As more and more people lose their jobs, they are turning to Network Marketing to get back on their feet. With no overhead, no office space to lease, no employees to hire and a tiny start-up cost, it is a no-brainer.

Flexible Lifestyle – Since you are the boss, you get to choose when and how long you work. Having the ability to work around your personal life is so attractive; especially to those who are very busy. You can start building your business by squeezing in just a couple hours a day. Whether it’s early in the morning, after lunch or the middle of the night it doesn’t matter. You can build a business at any time of the day.

Leverage – The key to generating a large income is leveraging off the efforts of others. By training others to do exactly what you do successfully, you can not only earn off of their efforts, but off the efforts of those they train as well. This creates exponential growth in your business, which in turn creates exponential growth in your paycheck and in your free time. Leverage makes your business grows whether you are working or not. This means you are no longer trading time for money, but instead investing time that pays you over and over again.

Time Freedom – The older you get, the more you realize that time is your most valuable asset. If done correctly, Network Marketing gives you the ability to take control of your time and use it as you wish. This, again, is achieved by using leverage. The bigger you build your distribution network, the less you have to work. Not a bad deal.

Financial Freedom – The number one reason people get involved in the Network Marketing industry is so they don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck anymore. Your income potential is virtually unlimited. You get to decide how much you want to earn, and with the power of leverage, your profits will grow like crazy. Just as you earn more time through leverage, you can create an ever-growing income that gets bigger on its own.

North Shore Dads develop Trainerly Offering Last Minute Online Fitness Deal without Membership

Edan Gelt

Northbrook, IL – Russ Berkun and Leo Akselrud, local dads and residents of Glenview and Northbrook, developed Trainerly (www.trainer.ly) – an online fitness platform to deliver last minute deals for classes at local fitness studios. Users of Trainerly can log on the night before or on their way home from work to find an available class deal near them without committing to a membership at a studio or gym. Unlike popular fitness site ClassPass, no membership is required for Trainerly, classes are available based on need, location, and budget.

Trainerly founders Berkun and Akselrud decided to launch the platform after finding it frustrating to make scheduled class times. Whether they were stuck in traffic, in between meetings, racing home after work or driving kids around town, the partners said they often missed scheduled class times at their local studios and wished there was an app that would offer a fitness class near where they were at.

Trainerly is primarily a listing service for fitness classes – similar to Expedia for airfare or Hotels.com for accommodations. Requiring no monthly membership, Trainerly is designed as a pay-as-you-go platform. Trainerly is great for individuals who have unpredictable schedules, not sure of the type of fitness program they want to belong to long term, or not ready for a commitment.

The program was designed as a win-win for the studios, Trainerly, and the users. The fitness studios set their own discounted pricing, Trainerly offers an array of classes on its website for a small percentage of sales and users can choose a class that fits their needs without any long-standing commitment. Currently, there are 40 studios on the Trainerly platform, from boot camp to yoga and boxing to pole dancing. Trainerly expects to sign on more than 100 studios by the end of 2017.

The studio owners like Trainerly because their class prices aren’t devalued like Groupon or ClassPass. Since studios set their own pricing, they can change it based on demand. If the class is more popular, the fee will be higher than a class that has more than 5 spots left.

“There is nothing like it in the Chicago market”, said founding partner, Leo Akselrud. “Sure, there’s ClassPass but you have to pay a monthly membership to try their classes. At Trainerly, you only pay for the classes you use. Some studios offer classes as low as $5”.

The founders worked with local fitness blogger and marketing strategist, Edan Gelt, at Joy of Fitness – www.edanjoygelt.com to help identify the needs of local studios and gyms before launching. “We learned that studios wanted qualified leads and were concerned about devaluing their classes and offending current members. We addressed that in our location and pricing structure when building the platform”, said founding partner Russ Berkun. “We custom created a program to cater to the end users but also benefit the gyms or studios by delivering qualified and valuable leads”, he said.

Subscribe to Trainerly at www.trainer.ly or at Trainerly on Facebook for last-minute classes up to 50% off. Gyms and studios can find out more information about joining Trainerly in the Chicago market by visiting their website or by emailing founder Leo Akselrud at leo@trainer.ly
