Ameriplan USA is a network marketing company that is best known for their discount health care programs along with a business opportunity to make money re-selling their products and bringing on new team members. They have gained a lot of notoriety in the last 18 years by the exposure they’ve received from some of their marketers and was also reported by Morley Safer of 60 minutes as having the best dental program in America. The bottom line question is simply this: Is Ameriplan USA a good opportunity or just another MLM/network marketing company? I will answer that in this review.
Ameriplan USA- The Good
The Company was founded by twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Bloom in the early 1990’s, their headquarters is in Plano, Texas and they saw the need for a value-oriented discount fee-for-service dental program. The business was an outgrowth of the demand for dental care services. Since then the Blooms expanded their vision to include a broad array of high quality money saving programs.
Ameriplan also offers a business opportunity for people to earn up to 90% commissions by recommending people enroll through their AP Flex Plus program. The AP Flex Plus program is a binary compensation plan that they launched in September of 2009 and is one of the most powerful compensation plan to hit the network marketing industry.
Ameriplan USA- The Other Side Of The Coin
Like so many other network marketing companies, Ameriplan recommends their distributors to make a list of friends and family members, holding meetings, cold calling and using the 3 foot rule in order to get new team members. Unfortunately, this is a model where many motivated distributors struggle, as most people don’t like selling to friends and family, and most family members don’t like being sold by other family members. In addition, they recommend 3-way calls with their upline, driving traffic to replicated websites, and other marketing techniques that create a lot of friction and frustration in growing a business from home.
Ameriplan has very good products and it’s a cool opportunity if you know how to market effectively and bring people to you who are already looking for what you have. Unless this is the case, growing ANY business is going to be a tough, slow road.
