COMMON ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of people are we looking for?

We are looking for two (2) types of people:

We want loyal customers who want to enjoy better health products while being rewarded with member wholesale pricing and at the same time can benefit  "Loyalty Rewards" through the company's compensation plan.

Were also looking for business builders with a dream and vision who are able to set goals and focus on achieving them.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Do I have to approach my friends and family?


No. That is strictly up to you. We feel that any business
owner would want to tell their friends and family about what
they have to offer and benefit from their patronage but you
certainly don't have to and we don't push you to do it. In
fact, even if you want to approach friends and/or family we
don't want you to do it until you have been trained and
know how to do it properly.


How do I find people to talk to about my business?

We'll teach you cost effective ways to promote your
business online and offline so that you are talking only with
people who want to talk with you about the business and/or
products. You'll never have to assault your neighbors or act like a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman. You won't have to anoy anyone within 3 feet of you and you'll never lose any of your friends or family using any of our techniques of promoting our business
 


Is it true that "only the people at the top" make money in MLM or Network Marketing?

No. In a legitimate Network Marketing company, like Goldshield Elite, it is entirely possible for you to earn more than the person who enrolled you, your upline, even the top earner in the company. If you build a bigger business than they do you'll get paid more money -it's as simple as that. In Network Marketing people get paid for performance.


General Membership Questions
What can Elite offer me?
Elite offers the finest nutritional products on the market today. Other benefits include a dynamic Loyalty Rewards Program and the ability to earn money on a monthly and weekly basis!


What is the minimum I need to get into Elite?
All Members are required to have a 30 QV monthly order or Insured Product Order. The 30 QV calculates to about US$40

.
How much will it cost me to join Elite?
The yearly Basic Membership fee is US/CA$10, (plus GST), £7.74 (including VAT), €11.15 (including VAT). The Advanced Membership fee is US/CA$29.95 (plus GST) / £23.35 (includes VAT), €33.85 (including VAT). Both Memberships include a subscription to the Elite Edition newsletter.


What is in the Advanced Membership Kit?
Advanced Membership gives you a one-year Membership and includes a product catalog, business building, and informational brochures and audios/videos, Membership Guidelines and product and price list information. The kit will continue to change as we develop more informational tools for you! A year’s subscription to Elite Edition is also included.
If I cancel my Monthly Order, is my Membership cancelled?
Members without a monthly order or Insured order of 30 QV or more for two consecutive months is considered a “Roll Down.” This means Members will forfeit any organization below them and will roll to the bottom of the matrix. These Members may continue to purchase at wholesale price and can choose to re-build an organization.


What will happen if and when holes in my matrix appear from non-purchasers?
When a Roll Down occurs, the most active Member from the first level below the Roll Down is moved up. This “compression” is determined by the person with the most active personal enrollees. In the event that two people have the same number of personal enrollees, the Member with the most organizational points will move up.


Can Membership be transferred to a family member at some level as a current Membership holder?
An Elite business may be inherited through any valid will or estate inheritance law as defined by state or province in which the Member holds residency. Elite requires proper documentation from the person who inherits that he/she is the beneficiary and is authorized to represent the estate. He/She must fill out a new application and agree to abide by all Elite Member Guidelines.

  Is this MLM or Network Marketing?

Yes it is. MLM or Network Marketing is the only business model that allows average people to achieve above average income, based on performance, by helping others do the same.

Do I have to sell?

Do you want to be successful? Business owners sell. Business owners promote. And...

When done properly MLM or Network Marketing is more like a "Referral and Training" business than a selling business and we'll teach you HOW to do it professionally. The biggest rewards a Network Marketing business has to offer, "leveraged residual income" and "Time Freedom" are created by teaching others to duplicate what you do successfully. Most people THINK they can not sell, in fact, they hate to sell, but they do Network Marketing almost every day. They just don't get paid for it. For example:

When was the last time you referred someone to a movie, restaurant, book, CD, department or grocery store that you personally enjoyed? When you tell others about what you use, where you go, what you watch or read you're unconsciously
"doing" the business of Network Marketing - "Word of Mouth" advertising. You send HUNDREDS


of customers to businesses every year but has any of those businesses EVER sent you a "Thank You" check? Goldshield Elite is willing to PAY you for something you do almost EVERY day.
 


What about training - is there any?

This business is ALL about training. Training is your key to success. You'll be trained how to gather customers and enroll business builders. You'll have access to 24/7 training via our team training website, email training program, company conference calls, your own personal success coach (your sponsor) and upline mentors as well. You'll have access to all the training necessary for you to become as successful as YOU desire to become - all you have to do is access the training, learn what is taught and then take action and implement what you learn.


What about saving money on taxes?

By starting your own Goldshield Elite home business
you gain significant tax advantages. The average family
of 4 can save as much as $5000 per year by writing off
things they pay for NOW but can not write off because
they do NOT have a home business. Things like:

Your phone
Your computer
Your Internet Service (ISP)
Your car (mileage)
Your home (percentage of utilities etc...)
Your travel and entertainment

In fact, the tax savings during your business start-up
will most likely pay for your business and create
immediate profit. Uncle Sam will pay you to start
your own home business through tax savings!

 


Members Only Section
In My Placement, I am showing as an Orphan. Why?
In order to allow Members the option of placing personally enrolled Members wherever they want in their organizations, everyone appears in the Hold Account in the sponsor field until they have a home! The computer is just “temporarily” listing the company as the orphan sponsor. However, the enroller information IS stored and appears when an enroller moves to Elite.


What will happen if and when holes in my matrix appear from non-purchasers?
When a Roll Down occurs, the most active Member from the first level below the Roll Down is moved up. This “compression” is determined by the person with the most active personal enrollees. In the event that two people have the same number of personal enrollees, the Member with the most organizational points will move up.

What does that mean to me? Earn a 9% reward on the first 200 Reward Value (RV) of all Elite Members in your organization through the 7th Level based on marketing plan qualifications.
Personal Volume Rewards
What does that mean to me? In addition to retail profits, earn a Personal Volume Reward on all your monthly personal reward volume (PRV) over 200 RV according to the chart below. Non-Member volume will be calculated as personal volume and will count towards earning personal volume rewards. However, non-Member volume will not count toward your personal qualifying points.

20% on all PRV above 200 when PRV is 400 to 599
30% on all PRV above 200 when PRV is 600 or greater


For example, if you create a total of 600 PRV in a month, Elite will pay you an extra 30% on 400 PRV equaling a US$120 reward.

Pinnacle Bonus
What does that mean to me? 4-Stars or higher receive an award certificate after remaining active at that level for three (3) consecutive months, or after the first month you are active at the next higher level. For example, attain the 7-Star level and automatically achieve the Pinnacle Bonuses paid at the 4, 5 and 6-Star levels after the first month. The month in which you obtained the level counts towards qualifying for a Pinnacle Bonus. Pinnacle Bonuses are paid one time for each level obtained.
4-Star = $250
5-Star = $500
6-Star = $1,000
7-Star = $2,500
8-Star = $5,000
9-Star = Spectacular Luxury Trip
10-Star = $50,000 minimum up to a maximum of $100,000 (Based on prior year’s
personally filed tax return.)

Retail Customers
What will a Member's profit be on retail sales?
When a retail customer purchases directly from Elite the retail profit to the Member will be 75% of the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price of the product.


When a person buys at retail, will they be sent Member information?
Member information will be included at the request of retail customers. Retail customers will receive a catalog and their packing slip with their order.
 


Monthly Order

If I cancel my Monthly Order, is my Membership cancelled?
Members without a Monthly Order or Insured Order of 30 QV or more for two consecutive months is considered a “Roll Down.” This means Members will forfeit any organization below them and will roll to the bottom of the matrix. These Members may continue to purchase at wholesale price and can choose to re-build an organization.
