Why I Left MyShoppingGenie

Written By: Patrick Ogunnaike on January 7, 2011 3 Comments

Myshopping Genie ReviewI originally joined my MyShoppingGenie in May of 2010 but by late 2010 I had come to the decision that I was no longer going to actively promote the opportunity.

Now let me be clear.  I believe that  My Net Universe is a good company and I think they mean to do right by people and I have made some money in the opportunity. It’s just not been profitable overall and in terms of fulfilling my mission of being able to help my team make money, MyShoppingGenie is missing some components that I think are essential.

Truth be told just about all companies in the MLM industry are missing one key component. In fact it’s the holy grail of network marketing.

If you’re reading this post you’re probably either reviewing this opportunity or you’re already on board so I’m gonna lay out my reason for leaving the business.

There are really just 3 main issues.

#1) Time to receive commission cheques

In general when you register a new distributor in the business, or qualify for any of the bonuses you typically have to wait 4 to 5 weeks or more to actually get paid and the timeframe seems to fluctuate so you can’t easily predict when you’ll finally get your commissions.

This is especially true up here in Canada where we have to wait for a cheque to be mailed. This started out being a bit of an annoyance but because the opportunity is so unique (getting paid to give away a free product and all) I overlooked it. But as time progressed
it become more of an issue. Who want’s to have to wait so long especially when many companies these days pay weekly or bi-weekly or even sooner.

#2) Dwindling Click Income

Now this has been a much bigger let down for me since this was the factor that made this opportunity so unique to me. The fact that all a person needed to do was give away the Genie and you could make money
when people use it meant that you didn’t need to be a super recruiter or salesman to make money in this business.  But unfortunately I’ve seen a sharp drop in my click income from a making a bit over $2 per Genie per month down to $1 to 50cents down to… actually I don’t think I’ve even been paid for the last couple of months of click income.

At first I thought maybe it was just me. Maybe it was just my users who weren’t using the software enough to earn me an income but after checking with other distributors I saw that they’re income was dropping by pretty much the same amount.

So I don’t know what the issue is but that is a major reason that I lost confidence with the MyShoppingGenie opportunity. But that wasn’t the final nail in the coffin.

That would be reason #3.

#3) Finding Prospects

To be truthful this issue is not unique to MyShoppingGenie. It plagues just about every homebased business in existence. This is how it breaks down you get someone on board your team and then they do nothing. Why?

Because they have no idea how to find people to talk to.  That’s why.

Or worse yet they innocently try to approach their best friend or brother-in-law about it and get shot down in flames and they call you to quit the next day. Every MLM business has this issue.

Well when I joined MyShoppingGenie my hope was that the opportunity would be so simple that it would bust through these challenges. I mean who can’t give away something for free and who can’t get people interested in making money giving something away for free?  Well the answer is a lot of people that’s who!

So what’s the point about being good at recruiting if there’s no simple predictable way to find people to promote your opportunity and products to? You’ll just be working your butt off only to have your people quit or at best sit there and do nothing.

So I decided that if I was going to build a home-based business that I needed to solve that one primary issue.

And I’m happy to say that I’ve found it. In fact, the solution has been around for over 12 years and to make matters worse I’ve known about it for 9 years.

This opportunity is with a 12 year old company that does something uniquely different in the industry.

They market their products via TV and Radio infomercials. And through their advertising they acquire paying customers and business affiliates.

Here’s where it get’s freaky.

I’ve quietly been earning an income with this company for the last 9 years having done exactly what I just told you. By acquiring customers from the company’s media advertising program.

That’s right 9 YEARS RAIN OR SHINE.

So I hope I haven’t burst your MyShoppingGenie Bubble too badly but I have to be honest about my experiences.  I really think that the My Net Universe is trying to create a great opportunity but it just fell short for me and I had to make a business decision about
what will get me to my goals.

If you have questions feel free to email me at or leave a comment but first go to to learn how this opportunity works and our Simple Success System.
I think you’ll be really blown away.

Yours in Success,
