Engagement is Key to MLM Success

Engagement, not dictatorship, is the key to successfully reshaping the multilevel marketing industry. And Steve Smith, principal partner at Steve Smith and Associates, is doing this one company at a time. The firm is looking to reshape the entire industry via actively engaging and partnering with pre-existent network marketers and distributors interested in fresh, sustainable growth and profits. 

Launched in early 2014, Steve Smith and Associates is comprised of principal partners Steve Smith and Beto Paredes, both long-time network marketing professionals. By partnering together, Smith and Paredes recognize opportunity in the oft-maligned multilevel marketing space to help current and aspiring companies effectively integrate this marketing model. Integral to their approach is approaching each company as partners and not clients; rather than instilling a quick solution for service fees, Steve Smith and Associates instead deploys its specific, proprietary program tailored to each company’s specific business model and product vertical.

This tailoring is achieved through careful analysis of each client’s current assets and goals, which are discovered through careful discussion and consideration. From that point onward, the firm’s system expertly institutes specific changes appropriate to their clientele without causing unnecessary disruption or cost overruns.

Smith’s previous tenure as Chief Marketing Officer with Excel Communications, oversaw the company’s growth leading to its becoming the youngest billion-dollar-annual company in history, outpacing Microsoft by seven years. Paredes’ previous experience comprises sales training, project management, business theory development, and core engineering for varies companies within the network marketing and other related industries. Previous clients include six Inc 500 list members such as LinkTrust, 5Linx, Hydra Networks, and

 Together, both men bring decades of practical experience, theoretical maturity, and confidence handling companies with Fortune 500-level profitability. The ultimate goal of Steve Smith and Associates’ implementation efforts is generating greater profits for significantly-reduced cost at greater efficiency than is often seen within other multilevel marketing efforts. Through careful implementation and overall companies’ adoption of its methodology to increase their bottom lines with reduced costs, Steve Smith is again ready to make history for a new generation of marketers.
