MLM Energy Company News: Ten Energy Companies Launch Network Marketing Channels
This week I am covering the top 10 energy companies fighting for the energy bills of over 350 million Americans.
Ignite Energy: Ignite is owned by Stream Energy and is by far the largest energy company in terms of customers and annual revenues.
Ambit Energy: Ambit Energy is the largest retail provider to enter into the network marketing arena. In 2010 they were listed in the Inc 500 as the fastest growing in their niche.
Viridian Energy: Launched in 2009 and is demonstrating their passion to be the #1 in the world with their aggressive move internationally.
UCI Energy Services: This group of leaders see the full potential of using network marketing to build their customer base. This is one to watch in the near future.
Dynastar Ventures: Now this will surprise a few of you reading this. The Founder/Chairman of Dynastar Ventures is Josh Henderson the founder of Lightyear Wireless. Josh and his team have extensive knowledge in running a direct selling company, and with their purchase of “My Affordable Energy aka Dynastar Energy” they are flexing their marketing and business muscles. I have been watching behind the scenes as Josh formed his team and made ready for the official launch later this year.
Momentis: This company is a little different. Not only is Momentis owned by Just Energy, JE is already international with headquarters in both the U.S. and Canada. Another unique piece of information is the fact “Just Energy” is a subsidiary of the “Just Energy Income Fund.” This may be a first in direct sales. I do not know of any other Energy Company owned by a Mutual Fund!
North American Power: Another very young company which just launched in 2010. However… already they are coming on strong. They market for several different energy providers and truly offer their customers a choice.
ACN: Need I say more! ACN by far has the most experience in the energy niche. A decade ago they entered into the arena, just to pull out because the industry was not ready for deregulation. Today they have re-entered into the niche, moving first into Canada, and now looking at several states her in the USA. Without a doubt they have the potential to make some real head way in the fight to the top.
Ampegy: Has a unique affiliation with Spark Energy of Houston, which could allow them to do some very interesting things in 2011. With leadership who understands the energy niche, and the power (no pun intended) of Spark Energy, this brand new company may become the next Inc 500 story.
Independent Energy: This company will be the new network marketing arm for Energy Plus. What I found interesting about this move by Energy Plus is they did $250 million last year without a network marketing arm. If you are already making that kind of money, there are far easier ways to grow your business than to launch a direct selling arm. Without a doubt I love our profession, but the amount of money it takes to launch, sustain and grow a network marketing channel with 9 other companies already fighting for the same clients, not counting the BIG GUYS, it kind of nuts.
