THE BUSINESS
OF THE
st

21

CENTURY

Network marketing today is one of


the best businesses people could
get into. The opportunity to start a
business with relatively low start-up
cost and no significant business
experience while helping other
people is unmatchable. Because
of this, an ever-increasing number
of people, especially professionals
and entrepreneurs, are getting
on board the network marketing
train, the vehicle that Robert Kiyosaki
calls the Business of the 21st
Century.

DIRECT
SELLING
INDUSTRY
THE

Worldwide Sales in Billions of U.S. Dollars

Direct selling is a growing and exciting industry


that provides companies an alternative channel
for the distribution and sale of products
and/or services directly to customers, away
from a traditional retail location. The industry
uses a variety of distribution methods;
multilevel marketing and network marketing
being two of it.
Worldwide Sales Force in Millions of People

Global Direct Selling 2013 Retail Sales. Published 28 July 2014.


Latest figure from World Federation of Direct Selling Associations.
www.wfdsa.org

The rise of the emerging market middle


class, technological innovations and a
relaxing of restrictions on capitalism has
triggered a major growth in this industry. As
more people begin to discover the benefits
of a market-based economy, entrepreneurism
has flourished.

Company Profile

UNDERSTANDING
THE DIFFERENCE

It is important to note that the direct selling industry is sometimes portrayed in a way
that is misleading and erroneous. Often, genuine companies are bracketed with pyramid
schemes that are fraudulent in nature. Pyramid schemes continue to harm consumers
across the world, and the media hype over these scams has led to increased scepticism.
Some of that scepticism has been unduly extended to direct selling.
QNET is known for its advocacy of direct selling and the need for legislation to regulate the
industry in emerging economies. Direct selling deserves to be protected by international
governments as it offers many well-documented benefits to the economy.
Currently, direct selling is an approximately USD 178 billion* industry.
It has approximately 96 million people involved as distributors.
Direct selling creates many entry-level jobs, which helps to reduce
unemployment and to empower those who are entrepreneurially minded.
There are a few ways in which consumers can protect themselves against being taken
in by pyramid schemes. While it can sometimes prove quite financially rewarding, direct
selling is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is a tough business, one that requires real time
and effort. A genuine direct selling business will be up front about this as it recruits new
distributors.
Direct selling companies, unlike pyramid schemes, deliver high-quality, legitimate
products and services and dedicates its resources to finding consumer products that
are appealing, useful, and valuable. Take for instance, a company like QNET, that offers
more than 40 product brands spread across seven different categories.
Legitimate direct selling companies have restrictions in their compensation plan.
They limit the number of people who can earn a commission through sales. In a pyramid
scheme, there may be many people involved with distributing products but only the
person at the top is likely to see any income.
Reputable direct selling companies do not offer commissions solely based on
recruitment, and most of them do not make recruitment a requirement at all. Above all
else, these companies reward people for promoting products. In a pyramid scheme,
there is no financial return unless other people are successfully enrolled.
Respectable direct selling companies offer their marketers solid training programmes.
Companies that actually care about the success of their distributors will invest in
professional development opportunities for those distributors.
Direct selling companies have proper policies and procedures in place, and clear codes
of ethics. They aim to achieve long-term growth and prosperity by fostering a culture of
ethical marketing. The same is not usually true of pyramid schemes, which are dishonest
by their very definition.

STORY

A small group of people from different parts of the world,


led by a young Malaysian business major and a Filipino
martial arts expert were brought together by a twist of fate
in the vibrant city of Manila in the Philippines in the late 90s.

In the mid-90s, Vijay Eswaran and Joseph Japa Bismark, two young men from drastically different
backgrounds came together in business and friendship. Having found reasonable success in network
marketing with an American company that was doing extremely well in the Philippines, the two joined
forces and their group called the V Team consisting of bright, motivated and talented men and
women, soon became the largest revenue earner for the American company.
At one point, they realised that the American firm was being dishonest with them and after all efforts
to rectify the situation failed, the V Team and a few of their leaders sat around Vijays kitchen to
discuss the next steps. About 1,500 people who had believed in the V Team leaders had joined
the team. What were they going to tell them? The easy way out was to tell them what the American
company owners did and wash their hands off any culpability.
However, they did not choose the easy way out. With the fate of thousands of their team members
at stake, and a liability in excess of USD 250,000, the two young men along with their core team
members made a bold and crazy decision to start their own company, with the sole purpose of
looking after the interests of the people that had trusted them and put their lifes savings into their
hands.
On that fateful day in September 1998 in the Philippine Stock Exchange Centre (formerly Tektite
Towers) in Manila, Philippines, the company today known as QNET was born.
And as they say,

the rest is history.

START

LIVING
When you consider how you want to live your life, its so easy to talk about the things youre going to
do when you have the time, when your children are older, when you have the money, when you lose
weight, when you quit your job, when you start your own business...

It seems that far too often, that when never arrives or, if it does, your fear or uncertainty about what
you want to do with your life makes you pick another when in the future. You talk about becoming a
writer, an artist, a photographer, a business owner whatever YOUR dream is and yet you get lost
in the daily grind of your lives. You keep waiting for life to begin, real lifebut there always seems to
be some unfinished business, something left undone.
Roman philosopher and statesman Seneca famously said Begin at once to live and count each
separate day as a separate life.
Trying to decide what you will do with your life is a big decision, but deciding what you want to do
today, now, if you were to live it and count it as a separate life, feels much more manageable.
It is from such a scenario, the concept of QNET was born. A decision was made by our founders to
not let the clouds of misfortune get in the way of their dreams. They made a choice to not let the odds
beat them. They made a choice to start living again.
It is that same philosophy we apply to everything we do at QNET. We encourage you to discover
your passion and pursue it, to define your goals, dreams and desires. To find your purpose. To find
your WHY.
Whether its through our products or services that enhance your lifestyle, through our exciting
business opportunity that help you pursue your dreams of being an entrepreneur, through our training
programmes that help you grow and discover yourself, through our community outreach initiatives
that help you give back to your society, everything we do at QNET is designed to help you start living
your life, the way it is meant to be. To help you be whatever you aspire to be, every single day.

START LIVING WITH QNET.

START TODAY. START NOW.

QNET PRODUCTS
ARE PART OF OUR FAMILY

I TRAVEL THE WORLD


WITH QNET AND QVI CLUB

Even when I was very young, I was fascinated with watches


and always dreamed of owning high quality, classy watches
that would reflect my status as a successful person. When
I saw the watches offered by QNET, I fell in love with
them. The very first product I bought from QNET was a
Bernhard H. Mayer watch and when I wore it, it made me
feel even more confident about myself. I have bought many
products from QNET that are now part of my familys lifestyle.
Our favourite product is our QVI Club holiday membership.
I always promote the holiday packages to my friends and
many have used the QVI Club vacations to go to Dubai,
Turkey and Thailand.

I am from Ukhta, an industrial town in one of the coldest


parts of Russia. When I was growing up, I would always wish
that I was born in a warmer place. But now, I am thankful that
I live in Ukhta because otherwise I would have never met the
people who introduced me to QNET and helped me through
my difficulties during my early days in the business. Today, I
am grateful for those challenges because it gave me the drive
to succeed. I am a strong believer in the power of QNET to
change lives. I dreamed of travelling the world when I was
younger. Today, with QNET, I get to travel to many countries
promoting the wonderful QNET products and the business.
Thats why my favourite products are the holidays from QVI
Club. With QVI Club holidays, people can make money and go
on relaxing holidays. I want to show people that they deserve
a better life and if I can achieve success, so can they.

WHAT QNET MEANS TO ME

FROM JOBLESS TO A NETWORK


MARKETING SUPERSTAR

I joined QNET in 2002. I was a student at that time. It has


been an amazing journey. QNET means a lot to me. Its the only
business that I have done. QNET is my life. Its the business
of the 21st century. I couldnt imagine myself without QNET.
With QNET, we can create a big fortune. We have a great
compensation plan. I believe it attracts so many people to join
the business, especially those who like to sell the products
or want to earn extra cash from the business. Of course,
everyone wants to make it big in this business and QNET
provides you seamless benefits to enjoy.

I grew up in Trenggalek, the smallest city in the East Java


province of Indonesia. I was introduced to QNET by my older
brother Gita Hartanto in July 2003. I did not take the business
seriously at the beginning. However, as time went by, I slowly
began to understand the business and its system by watching
my brother build his team. My growing belief that this business
could provide me long-term remarkable results finally
influenced me to change my mind to take part in this journey.
Today, I have everything beyond my expectation. So far, I have
as many as 7,000 guests at my weekly presentations. QNET
is a road, a bridge and a vehicle to achieve my dreams.

A REWARDING JOURNEY

QNET CHANGED MY LIFE

I was living a very difficult life struggling to pay off my fathers


debts. I had resigned myself to living and dying in the same
place, never stepping foot outside of Turkey. Thank God,
QNET opened my eyes to a whole new world of opportunity.
My life was transformed. Getting started wasnt easy. I gave
up many times and made many mistakes. But my leaders
were always beside me. Thats when I started treating this as
my own business and stopped making excuses every time
I faced a problem. If this is my business, then I must find a
solution to it and not depend on anyone else. That is the
reason for my success. Today, I am proud to say that I have
helped thousands of people make a better life for themselves
because of QNET. Its not an easy journey but its definitely a
worthwhile journey.

8 years ago, I was a normal student that naively thought that


getting a degree will get me a good-paying job that would
allow me to give my single mother a better lifestyle. The
life-changing decision to join QNET has led me to an
unbelievable and marvellous journey which has completely
changed my life. Currently, I am enjoying the time freedom
that most people my age do not have. I have financial security.
The most amazing part of this journey is being involved in
changing other peoples lives, something which I never
thought I had the ability to do. QNET has absolutely changed
my life. I always enjoy each moment I get to introduce myself
as a LEGEND to friends! Thanks QNET, for changing my life!

TIMELESS ELEGANCE
WITH LUXURY WATCHES

I CANT IMAGINE MY LIFE


WITHOUT HOMEPURE

I always believe that a mans elegance and grace cannot be


complete without a fine timepiece. As an entrepreneur, I get
more confidence from wearing an elegant and exceptional
luxury watch.

Living in Egypt my whole life, HomePure isnt like anything


Ive ever seen before. It is exactly what I need. I am amazed
by how tap water turns colourless, odourless and tasteless
instantly, just by going through this small, water filter system!
It is the power of the Silver-lite stone in the HomePure 7-Stage
Water Filtration System which prevents bacteria and algae
growth. Another thing that I love about HomePure is that it
doesnt require much space in the kitchen, nor does it need
regular maintenance. The 7-stage filtration system may sound
complex but were able to set up the machine at home in
about three minutes, without the need for an electrical
connection. HomePure is exactly what every home needs. I
now cant imagine my life without it!

Thats why I always find myself attracted to QNETs watches,


which I consider as my favourite product line. The Bernhard H.
Mayer and CIMIER watches are all marked with distinction
and excellence in quality and design and they are suitable
for all occasions! My target is to have a watch for each day
of the year. Waiting for a few more new models to complete
my collection.

OUR

TOUCHING

A BILLION HEARTS
At the heart of QNET lies a strong
purpose. Anyone who has been
a part of the company, either as
an employee or an Independent
Representative, knows that the
common philosophy that binds
us is the concept of RYTHM Raise
Yourself To Help Mankind.
Our founders have always
advocated the need to work
for a common purpose beyond
money. They believe that money
is primarily a tool that must be
used to raise peoples lives and
make a lasting impact. These
ideals have grown to become
the lifeblood of the RYTHM
Foundation and its Malaysian
chapter, the Vijayaratnam
Foundation. Both Foundations
serve as the implementing
partners for QNETs philanthropic
initiatives.

needs children, supporting homes for the disabled, funding hospitals for cancer treatment
and heart surgery for children, mentoring adolescents from low income families and much,
much more. QNET believes in not just writing a cheque but getting involved and working
towards sustainable change. QNET IRs around the world work hand in hand with us to help
make a difference in their communities.

The PITCH!, a contest launched in 2012, called for IRs to pitch ideas that would make a difference in their communities and win
a grant of USD 10,000 for the chosen projects. Winning projects were chosen from Uganda, Egypt and India.
Taarana, which means awakening in Sanskrit, is a centre for children with special needs established by the Vijayaratnam
Foundation in Malaysia. The school is the only one of its kind offering a variety of courses and educational facilities for young
children between the ages of three and 15, who face different types of development delay disorders. Employees and Independent
Representatives of QNET have contributed generously to Taarana so that the school can continue to progress and provide more

DREAM.
PERFORM.
ACHIEVE.
There are thousands of people with dreams, but only a handful ever turned them
into reality. How do they do it? They follow a simple formula:

1. COMMIT TO A DREAM. MAKE THAT DECISION.


2. REGULARLY AND CONSISTENTLY IMAGINE ACHIEVING IT.
3. TURN THE DREAM INTO SPECIFIC, FOCUSSED GOALS.
4. ESTABLISH A STEP-WISE ACTION PLAN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Dream. Perform. Achieve. Thats the formula to success, whether in business or
in sports. At QNET, we recognised early on the synergy between our business
and sports. We believe that people are at their strongest when they work as
a group, just as in a sports team. To win, we assemble the best players, train
very hard, formulate specific strategies, out do our opponents and continuously
improve our skills and knowledge of the game.
Hence, it is natural that we build strategic partnerships with sporting events to
help us build our brand.

A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN!


Football is a passion, a way of life, a religion for many. Its an all-engulfing game that has you on your toes, biting your nails the entire
90 minutes, wrapped up in the tension of hoping your team will score. Its an indescribable experience, cheering for your team,
singing the anthem you cherish, wearing the shirt of the team you have supported as long as you can remember

QNET AND MANCHESTER CITY FOOTBALL CLUB


In 2014, QNET took this passion to a whole new level by signing up with Manchester City Football Club as its Official Direct Selling
Partner. A one-time community club that rose through the ranks and overcame all odds to become champions of the Barclays
Premier League 2013-2014, ManCity is QNETs newest partner in our quest to become a global brand.
The teams journey to the top has been one of commitment, focus and team work traits that we admire and endorse at QNET.
Manchester Citys focus on giving back to the community through football mirrors our own philosophy of RYTHM (Raise Yourself To
Help Mankind) through which we seek to empower people to better their lives and help others do the same.
Through this partnership, QNETs goal is to link the excitement of football and the passion of the fans to the thrill of direct selling
and the drive of QNETs Independent Representatives.

FORMULA FOR SUCCESS


The drive and passion of direct selling is epitomised in the thrill of motorsports.
In 2010, QNET propelled the direct selling profession onto global sports stage through its historic partnership with Virgin Racing in
the elite world of Formula 1. The team was renamed as Marussia F1 Team in 2012.
The partnership represents a momentous evolution of QNETs support of worldwide sports, and the motorsports arena in particular.
With its partnership with Marussia F1 Team, QNET is building on a legacy established through podium-placing sponsorships of
motorsports teams during the companys history. Previously, the company was the title sponsor of Team Meritus in the 2006
Formula V6 Series, which then developed into a strong title sponsorship of the CIMB Team QI-Meritus team, who were crowned
champions of the 2007 Formula BMW Asia Series in China.
In 2008, the company became the key sponsor and strategic partner of Team Malaysia QI-MeritusMahara in the inaugural GP2
Asia Series in 2008.
The sponsorship continued through to 2010, when the team placed fourth overall in the championship. Sponsoring Marussia F1
Team has been an enriching venture for QNET with the phenomenal growth the team has seen over the last few years and the
strong parallels between the team and QNET are clear.
