Ilion, Greece (PressExposure) June 22, 2009 -- Catherine Plavoukou, a multi level marketing (MLM) entrepreneur and direct sales expert, has joined internet marketing powerhouse CarbonCopyPRO, the organization that supports Wealth Masters International (WMI) financial consultants. My goals are financial freedom, prosperity and fulfillment on every aspect of life," Plavoukou said. "This is the perfect vehicle for achieving those goals because I have great leaders to follow and people to work with."
Plavoukou, who holds a degree in business administration from the University of Indianapolis, worked in corporate America for a number of years as both a restaurant manager for several large chains, and as a financial consultant for MetLife. But a search for residual income and the ability to leverage the network marketing business model led her to Herbalife and MLM. The problem was that the approach was based on marketing to a warm list of friends, relatives and associates, as well as the fact that the $50-$90 price point made creating massive wealth difficult if not impossible.
She began searching the internet for an opportunity that would more closely match her personal goals and aspirations. Plavoukou had several false starts with opportunities where she paid the money, and completed her training, only to realize that she was on her own--and nothing was happening. According to industry statistics, however, this is not unique since over 97% of everyone who launches an MLM business ultimately fails.
Plavoukou says that she bought e-books and joined webinars, in a fruitless attempt to master the nuances of internet marketing. Then she discovered Mike Dillard, and his concept of Magnetic Sponsoring. "He is suggesting a more ethical approach in online marketing by giving value to the prospects as a true leader that knows what he is doing," Plavoukou said. Now I was learning great things. All I needed was a great product to market and a marketing system that I could follow step by step."
CarbonCopyPRO and WMI became the solution to that problem. "Everything that I had learned in theory about Attraction Marketing, generating your own leads, and Web 2.0 all of a sudden started making sense," said Plavoukou. "I soon realized that these guys were for real--they actually called me to congratulate me and to help me get started."
