The Philanthropy Of Stream Energy

With the onset of the internet, and all it has brought us, the word “stream” has taken on so much more meaning that a babbling brook leading to a river. Even when we hear it now, the connotation is that progress is being made, in some way. Either Dallas firm “Stream Energy” wanted to connect thoughts of their company name to progress and innovation, or it was just the nature of the way they directly sell energy that the name was arrived at. Either way, the very name of the company does them a lot of good.

The company is not squandering success, however, as there is altruism in the way Stream Energy uses their philanthropy for success. Recently Hurricane Harvey, in August of 2017, decimated parts of Texas, triggering paralyzing floods in Houston and the surrounding areas. The damage caused from this hurricane was over $100 million, and a lot of that represented individuals suffering loss of their homes, cars and other possessions. Insurance companies were not exactly fast to respond either, so it is nice that local companies, who are doing well, rushed in to help.

Instead of ignoring the plight of their fellow Texans, Stream Energy was galvanized by what happened and used it as a vehicle to be proactive. They used company money for the betterment of others suffering catastrophic loss. It is not often, however, that we hear of a company really giving at a time when the need is so acute, and unfortunately it is actually somewhat rare. Stream Energy took on the suffering of those affected by the hurricane, helping to alleviate some of the byproducts of that awful disaster.

In addition to direct help, they also actually took to their website promising those affected that they would not be held responsible for any late fees, nor should they be concerned with due dates on their bills. In fact, Stream Energy is so committed to helping others at times of need, they created a branch of the company, Stream Cares, to deal exclusively with supporting philanthropic efforts. There was not a lot of fanfare regarding creating this arm of the company, but rather classically and quietly, they set out to make this happen, and they did.

Market America’s mouth-watering compensation plan

Market America is an internet marketing company that was established in 1992 by the power couple JR and Loren Ridinger. Initially, the couple operated from the garage in their home but they have now expanded to sell their products, not in America, but also several other countries across the globe. John Ridinger was a senior distributor at Amway before quitting and establishing his company.

 

Just like many other startups, Market America experienced several challenges in its early years of existence. After being in the market for seven years, Market America ran into trouble with the SEC concerning the violation of federal security laws.

With the charges being pressed against them, Ridinger decided to go private in 2001. This strategy gave them an opportunity to open up to new markets in Austria, Hong Kong, the UK, Mexico and the Philippines. A decade later, Market America received some buzz as they stepped into the international arena.

 

The company acquired Shop.com, an online platform where customers can purchase more than 35 million products. The Shop.com platform has been endorsed by some of the world-renowned entrepreneurs such as the Bill Gates, Yahoo, and Amazon. In 2011, the company announced that they close the year with $393 million in revenues. In the same year, they unveiled Kim Kardashian and Scottie Pippen as their celebrity spokespeople. These celebrities would also make appearances in the company’s annual conferences

 

What do you need to become a member?

Any new member joining Market America is required to purchase a startup kit that goes for $399. Members are also subject to paying a monthly fee. These monies are used to cater for the member’s access to the web portal for the company’s products. To earn a commission, members are required to make minimum monthly sales of up to $200.

 

Market America’s products

When compared to popular retailers, Shop.com is still bigger than Wal-Mart. The company sells over 35 million products and there are an additional 2500 proprietary products. The products in Shop.com include weight loss and nutritional supplements, household products, gardening products, fitness programs and many more. The company’s compensation plan is built upon a binary system.
