Why Read This 5Linx Review?
I don’t work for this company, nor am I a distributor. I’m an Internet entrepreneur and a business expert from the school of hard knocks as well as a traditional MBA. I have over 2 decades entrepreneurial experience in various businesses, primarily start-ups and am writing this so you can make your own decision about 5Linx as a business opportunity.
5Linx provides technology through a traditional Network Marketing business model. I see a huge opportunity for distributors in this company and will tell you exactly why at the end of this review.
Time and money is required for any new business. A lot of each. Network Marketing is different in that the costs to begin are typically less than other options. Never the less, you’ll need a mindset for success and the ability to really focus and get things done on your own.
The company offers an excellent plan for compensation and has a good, solid management team. I believe there are opportunities here to make a decent income if you understand how to market this company utilizing new technologies and marketing systems.
Read below for specific details.
Explanation of the Review
I really found no complaints about this company. I did find a handful of ex distributors that had switched to another company but all were professionally handled.
Looking online at the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) site revealed no outstanding complaints, either. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) in Rochester, NY, showed dozens of complaints, all resolved. No government action or ad infringements currently existed against the company.
Years In Business
According to the BBB, the company has been in business since January, 2001. A safer bet is a company that has been around for several years since most companies will fail within the first 12 months.
5Linx Review: Management
This company has an impressive management team with expertise in the appropriate areas of technology as well as network marketing. Personally, I prefer a management team founded in sales. Companies lacking sales aren’t in business for long. This business meets the sales criteria.
Craig Jerabeck, CEO and President has been with the company since 2001. Mr. Jerabeck has a vast background in cellular retail sales and management prior to his entrepreneurial experience.
Jeb Tyler, Executive Vice President – Marketing, holds a degree in Business Administration focused on Marketing but the corporate website says very little about his experience elsewhere. Mr. Jerabeck’s experience probably compliments Jeb’s.
Jason Guck is the Executive Vice President of Sales and has many years experience directly associated to Network Marketing which is a good tie in for the corporate team considering their business model. Mr. Guck has had considerable success building sales organizations prior to his experience here.
5Linx Review: Financial Stability
At the time of this writing, the company is privately held and listed on INC 500 as one of the fastest growing companies in the country. Not a bad sign. The company has experienced over 800% growth …
