There is much that can be found online about the Lyconet shopping community. But I have found very little about the Lyoness SME community and I want to focus on this element of the Lyoness International business model.
A month or so ago I was able to sit down with Craig Shapiro and John Constino who work hand in hand with Lyoness Americas new CEO Iain Bratt, building and developing the Lyconet Shopping Network and Lyoness SME communities. These two give an in-depth look at how the two communities work in tandem together to create a solid business model.
As we all know there may also be stories of merchants who do not feel the SME program worked well for them. I believe as with everything, there are pros and cons and individuals should dig deep to see if a program will work for them.
Here is one community where a variety of merchants, restaurants, construction, gas stations, tire companies and herb shoppe are SMEs in the Lyoness Shopping Community. What caught my attention is ALL of these testimonials are by the real people, not paid actors.
