Income Claims

Money, get away
Get a good job with good pay and you’re okay
Money, it’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream
Think I’ll buy me a football team*

Now most of us won’t be able to buy a football team earning Modere commissions alone but isn’t it the greatest feeling to receive a commission check from Modere and, not to mention, all the bonus perks that comes along to reward you for all of your devotion and hard work? It can also boost your desire to help other people see how network marketing can potentially help them financially. With all this excitement it can be tempting to make income claims or earnings representations to demonstrate the inherent power of network marketing.

Building a business and an income with Modere can take time as all of you know. Success doesn’t just happen overnight. Most people you introduce to Modere only see the hardworking but successful you of today. They may not see the months or even years it took you to build your business to where it is today. Plus, each new Social Marketer is unique and comes with their own set of challenges to learn how to run a successful business of their own. Some Social Marketers may get the knack for it and bloom while others may need a little more coaching and mentoring.

Making any kind of income claims or earnings representations is counterproductive because new Social Marketers may become disappointed very quickly if their results are not as extensive or as rapid as the results others have achieved.

Also, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and several states have laws or regulations that regulate or even prohibit certain types of income claims and testimonials made by persons engaged in network marketing. Modere has taken the position that no Modere Social Marketer may make income projections, income claims, representations, or disclose their Modere income or the income of any other Modere Social Marketer (including the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records).

Examples of inappropriate income claims would be:

“Contact me if you want to learn how to make an extra $500 a month.”

“I just got my Modere commission check and can’t believe that I am getting paid $1,385!”

“Our top Social Marketers are making six-figure incomes!”

We are excited when you’re excited about your Modere commission earning. We hope that you will continue to tout the experiences you are having especially all the Modere Rewards you are earning but be vigilant about making income claims.

If you have questions or concerns about income claims or any other questions you may have, you can contact the Modere Compliance Department.
