Looking To Expand My Business To Switzerland
 
Hi Everyone. My name is Jim & I'm in the health and wellness business. I travel to Switzerland 1-2 times per year...and an based in the United States. I'm looking for two people in CH to expand my business with, that carry a couple of different skill sets.

Both need to speak good English because I only speak English fluently. Swiss German is fine as you carry on locally, but with me needs to be English. I can order food & beer in Rapi, but my Swiss-German does not go much past that :)

The first unique skill set would be someone that is very good with generating leads on the internet. Web sites, adwords, etc. Strictly for the Switzerland market to start. These leads would then be worked to determine if you have a customer and/or potential consultant.

The second unique skill set would be someone that is very good with face to face marketing. Such as starting up conversation and asking qualifying questions to determine if they could be a customer or someone you want to work with. Doing product demonstrations, etc.

I can only directly handle one or two people right now as our time difference is 7 hours. Anyone else would work directly with the first two that I choose.

I am an International consultant for Nikken. I received 3rd place in top retailers for the entire organization this last year with my business model, & am ready to move it out to Switzerland now.

I'm posting in this section because these two people will be building their own business as we work together. There is very little cost to get going, and then your limits are set by you. These first two will be the main point people for me in Switzerland as well, so I just ask that if we decide to work together you are dedicated to learning and teaching as you move forward.

Here is a link to Nikken's webpage in Europe;

Please contact me through the forum so we can set up a time to talk.

Here is a quick intro;

I am not sure the multilevel marketing craze will ever hit Switzerland. The Swiss are more savvy with their money than that. But good luck to you.:)

So you want to have some one write adwards and marketing for Switzerland, in what English or Swiss German? As Swiss German isn't a written language, do you mean High German? And if so, if someone spoke only Swiss German and English, wouldn't they have to be competent in High German as well?

What do you exactly need?

He's looking for downline members for his pyramid. Basically a person signs up to be a consultant, pays a fee, and gets discounts on the products as well as financial incentives for signing up more consultants. The more people you sign up, the more money you make. Some people are very successful with it, but a lot depends on how many friends you can sign up early to help you grow your "team" and how many of their friends sign on too, etc.

From the website:

"What is Network Marketing?
Network Marketing is the way in which a company organises its independent Consultants who introduce the company and its products to others... Network Marketing is also sometimes known as Multi-Level Marketing or Direct Selling."

imho, yes. I've done this type of "business" before and all it did was drain my pocketbook and piss off my friends. I just can't see this business model being successful in Switzerland. But I could be wrong. Maybe OP is going to get very rich and laugh at me from his villa on a lake someday. ;)

Legit pyramid scam basically. Don't bother wasting time or money.

A word to the wise to the OP--these kinds of businesses won't work here. They depend on a community of people with huge families and lots of friends and cohorts. They rely on a population of young marrieds looking to supplement their income. They are dependent on a society willing to open their homes (for "parties", a.k.a. sales venues where your friends and families are guilted into buying your product).

In short, if you understood Thing One about the Swiss mindset and the Swiss lifestyle, you would not be on this forum. Stick to the US, particularly Utah. Mormons luuuurve this kind of stuff.
