ACN Business Review

Posted by Lelia Raynal

 

 

 

Background:

ACN is also known as ACN Inc.com.  It was founded in 1993 as a reseller of long distance phone services and internet access.  It claims to be the largest direct selling telecommunications company in the world, with annual revenues today  of more than $500 million. Since first launching operations in North America, the company has expanded into Europe, Asia and the Pacific with operations currently in 23 countries.  ACN has a competitive pay plan, with both up front bonuses and long term residual earnings paid on customers, and on the ‘teams’ and Independent Rep is able to build.  The company is headquartered in Concord, NC.


Products:

Digital Phone Service with Video Phone,  Local and Long Distance services,  Internet, Wireless, Home Security, Satellite TV, Energy, WiMAX, ACN Mobile World, ACN Premium Technical Support.


Strengths:

  • Global opportunities.
  • Products and services already in use, in demand worldwide.
  • Successful corporate track record.
  • Impressive company sales of over $500,000,000.
  • Pays independent reps bonuses and long term residuals on their customers and their teams.


Weaknesses:

  • Outside of their ‘video phone’, these are not unique products
  • Their pricing is usually not competitive enough for customers to switch on ‘price’ alone.
  • Without either a significant savings, or significant earning potential, seems a tough offering.
  • This is definitely ‘direct sales’, or ‘network marketing’ where an independent rep needs to talk with/sell everyone they meet/know to get customers.

 


ACN Business Rating (High Score is 10)

6.2

 

CONCLUSION:

In conclusion, ACN Inc.com is a very successful corporate entity but with what are likely thin margins to work with in paying distributors.  As a reseller of others products and services independent reps would need to develop huge networks of clients and customers, as in traditional network marketing companies, to develop significant income.  For those willing to put their heads down and work it hard, it could be a good fit.
