“Be true to yourself, success will follow.” -Harald Seiz, Founder of Karatbars
Easy for Mr. Seiz to say- he's swiftly moved from one success in life to another, until he finally landed on his present venture, Karatbars. Karatbars are little tiny bars of gold available in such small denominations that virtually anyone can own gold. Karatbars is also a multi-level marketing opportunity for those who want to try to sell gold and earn income.
We'll take a look at the prospects of gold (the product), the background of Mr. Seiz and his company, as well as the virtues of the Karatbars compensation plan.
By the time you finish reading this, you'll be ready to decide if Karatbars and the Karatbars opportunity are for you.
First: Why Gold? A Look at the Karatbars Product
As Mr. Seiz's translator indicates in the promotional video on the Karatbars website, gold has been around for 5000 years. Since the beginning of its discovery it's been viewed as precious… so much so that by the time humans invented currency, gold was the standard even then.
That means gold has endured 2800 years as a constant item of value…gold never goes out of style and always keeps it value. The price of gold may fluctuate but it never goes to zero like stocks do. It doesn't lose value to inflation like the dollar, the pound, or other world currencies do. It's not subject to political disruptions like currencies are. Its value isn't affected by world disasters or geo-political events.
Gold is gold: always has been and always will be. No matter what part of the world you're in or where you're from, gold is gold and represents the highest level of value, achievement, and status.
At $1200 an ounce, gold is expensive. However, it's considered an important piece of any well-rounded financial portfolio. Big investors and rich people own gold because it's impervious to outside forces, which is something you cannot say about stocks, bonds, and cash money.
So why should only the super-wealthy among us be able to take advantage of the security of gold?
Karatbars are available starting at just 1 gram. That'll run you about $37 USD or 35 EUR. For many, the ability to buy a single gram of gold makes them feel like they're part of a world that otherwise would not be open to them. See Harald Seiz's story below for more on that.
For now, suffice it to say that the Karatbars product serves a huge part of the population that otherwise could not get their hands on gold to own for themselves or give as gifts.
Harald Seiz is the man behind Karatbars, and his vision is to bring gold ownership to everyone. Mr. Seiz is a German whose origins are deeply rooted in business and finance. He in fact worked for another gold company before he started Karatbars.
His vision of a global company didn't mesh with theirs, however, so he broke off and started Karatbars, which not only markets the tiny chips of gold worldwide, but also relies on a global network of distributors to sell the product.
The Compensation Plan
Karatbars are sold as “contracts” to buy gold. If you can sell 50 contracts then you're really in business with Karatbars, as a Bronze Director. Work your way up to Silver and then Gold Director levels and your commissions get higher, as does your residual income.
Get a Customer Acquisition Bonus by selling at least 50 EUR worth of gold to a new customer. The higher your rank, the more your CAB will be. You also get a commission worth 33% of your CAB.
So, as you can see, if you've got sales ability there's income opportunity here for sure. You already know the product is great. Harald Seiz's background checks out…Karatbars and the opportunity have all the makings of a winner. Just give yourself some time to figure it all out and you're “golden” (sorry).
