For New IBOs
Made recommendations for meaningful incentives for new IBOs that aligned with Fast Track Incentive Program in order to increase Activation, Retention and Engagementof IBOs in the first 6 months. Reviewed the proposed new Welcome Kit.
Rewarding loyal ordering IBOs
Proposed the company look at ways to reward our most loyal ordering IBOs.
These are IBOs that produce predictable volume month in and month out.
Whether they are vigorously growing their teams or just repeatable and loyal wholesale customers over the years, they should be treated as VIPs.
Free shipping from IBOs to Customers
After much discussion for the last few years, Amway has finally been able to find a way to allow IBOs to offer free shipping to their customers on their PRW and/or the Amway site. It will be deducted from the IBO’s retail profit on these orders.
We do, though, continue to look at options for Amway to be able to offer free shipping for customers. But this is still a big win.
There was much, much more discussed during our meetings, but unfortunately this is all the information we are able to share with you at this time.
Thank you for your continued support for your IBOAI Board!
