acn reviews ACN reviews

If you’re researching ACN reviews and you find yourself reading this, you’re probably thinking about becoming a rep. Congratulations on doing your homework before you join.
If you are already a rep, it’s not too late to be successful, but you really need to read this complete review.

You need to know up front that I am not an ACN rep, so what I am going to share with you is from an unbiased perspective. Most all ACN reviews will tell you about ACN  inc and it’s products. I’ll also give you a look at how you get paid with ACN  inc and discuss what you may not have been told that is critical to your success.

In addition, I’ll give you access to a marketing strategy that can help give you a significant advantage over the majority your competition.

ACN Reviews – What Is ACN?

Having been in business for over 15 years, ACN inc continues to experience exponential growth each year. You may already know from other ACN reviews that the company is endorsed by Donald J. Trump.

ACN Reviews – How You Get Paid

ACN uses a typical network marketing model where you are paid commissions seven levels deep on both purchases from your customers and the customers of the reps you enroll in the opportunity. As far as the details of the ACN compensation plan goes it is a fairly simple deal. Distributors must be qualified by maintaining a certain number of customers per their rank and in doing so can qualify to earn residuals on consumer usage through their organization as well as customer acquisition bonuses on the growth of their team.

ACN Reviews – Easy Money or Way to Go Broke

There are many others who have written ACN reviews. If you’ve read them, you may have the impression that ACN is a strong company. They are, but when you get right down to it, ACN is a network marketing opportunity. They have a competent corporate staff, a product many people use, and excellent service. They have what some consider a fair compensation plan.  Starting to sound like “the XYZ network marketing company?”
The truth is… none of this has any impact onthe ability of an ACN distributor to succeed.

Researching other ACN reviews is a good idea. Get to know as much about the company as you can before making a decision.

If this is a product you are passionate about, and you have decided to join, or if you are already an associate, let me caution you that most ACN distributers struggle to reach the level of success that they thought was possible. Why?
Because they lack two critical skills that all top earners in any network company must have to succeed at the highest level and most ACN reviews are not going to tell you this.

Javita reviewThe two main factors that cause reps to fail in ACN are:
1 – A lack of leads, and
2 – No understanding of how to market the business

If you don’t understand the importance of marketing, you will end up with in no leads. An no leads means no income and ultimately, discouragement and failure. Learning how to generate leads, resulting in sales and sponsoring other distributors into your ACN business is the only way you will generate the income you desire.

ACN Reviews – Marketing Success Strategy

You may have been told that talking to your friends and family about ACN is the best way to get started. Although that is certainly true to get started quickly, for most people it is not a long term strategy that will result in significant income.

What will you do when you have gone through your list of family and friends? Most likely you will find yourself frustrated from dealing with rejection, having made little if any money, and will be left wondering why you got into this industry in the first place.

But don’t despair, there is a solution.

Please call me I would liike to know more. My mob number is-00447825597359. thank you.


Tanisha May 11, 2012 at 2:30 am

This is a great review and I think I need to be apart of this. Many fail in any business because they fail to change their mindset


Doug DeMercurio May 11, 2012 at 7:41 am

Tanisha, you are very perceptive. Once you get your mindset right and are focused, committed, and surrender to your purpose, you will no longer struggle to get the results you desire.


joe May 22, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Acn is a scam and it won’t work. Think about what the company sells before joining. If its hard to sell, its hard to make money. If the product is good, $$$


Doug DeMercurio May 22, 2012 at 10:16 pm

You are partly right, Joe. ACN won’t work, but no company will. You have to do the work. I think what you are telling us Joe is that YOU could not make it work. That does not make it a scam. Network marketing is not a business that is suited for everyone. Obviously there are many people who make a significantly large income in ACN. It is a legitimate business. I am NOT a rep for ACN, so I really don’t have any bias for or against them. I know there are many people who have struggled in ACN, but you can say that about ANY company. Heck, people even get fired from “real” jobs.

henry March 13, 2013 at 11:54 am

Hi Doug,
I was thinking of ACN and went to one of their presentations. Dont’ you agree that in the beggining its like a pyramid scheme becuase you’re recruiting people to get bonuses or money. Also why do you have to wait until they tell you when can you cant start selling or offer there product or services. The rep that I went with he told me that he can’t offer there product yet until he had form a team and sign up few people. Why dont’ they let you, after you giving them $499 for signup & 299 for using there web software and receiveing a ACN phone, offer there services or products right away, why wait? The rep told me its a process I get it some projects take a process but its not rocket science it basically selling internet & phone services which can take one day of training. I get the concept or idea and the deregulation of energy but there some stuff that seems shady. What do you think?


Doug DeMercurio March 13, 2013 at 3:22 pm

I am not a rep for ACN but I can relate what I’ve learned from ACN reps who I have coached.
There are three main struggles that most ACN reps seem to have:
1) Dealing with people who don’t want to break their current phone contract.
(You need to have a solid follow up system to keep track of when their contracts expire, and you won’t get immediate sign ups)
2) A lack of training and marketing support once they sign up. (They get left on their own)
3) Many do not like the hardwired phone system. (Everyone uses cellphones these days)
I cannot explain why they won’t let you sell. That’s a question you’ll need to have answered from them


ronald March 13, 2013 at 11:29 pm

hi Doug, please email me. how can i learn to get new leads? i ran out of people and nobody signed but i wanna continue can i think i just need work know more info on how to do can.. please help!

I have read so many articles about company reviews but this article
is genuinely a pleasant article, keep it up.


Doug DeMercurio April 9, 2013 at 7:10 am

Thanks for the compliment. Good luck with your marketing.


Talha April 15, 2013 at 6:21 am

hello Doug, this review is quite pleasant to read and i know you have a great level of knowledge and understanding in these types of businesses, i am not a rep but i have been doing research if i should join or not and how to be successful in this business. I would really appreciate it if you would email me and guide me in the right direction.
Thanks, Talha


Doug DeMercurio April 15, 2013 at 7:17 am

I would be happy to give you some guidance. I will send you a direct email.

wow thanks Doug i cant thank you enough for replying so fast and your willingness to help me out, i look forward to your help and mentoring.
Thanks again, Talha


Greg April 20, 2013 at 3:19 am

Hello Doug. Your article is just one of thousands I have read in the past couple months and let me just say that it is fantastic. I have recently joined ACN due to the massive amount of feedback I have read. I know Network Marketing is not for everyone so I have come here to ask politely. Where do I begin, what must I be doing daily to further develop the success we all chase after. I just started College and just signed off a student loan with no direct plan on how to pay back that money, Please help.


Doug DeMercurio April 20, 2013 at 2:32 pm

I suggest you start by asking your team leader what system the team is using. If you do not have team training and support, your success will be much more difficult. Not impossible but much more difficult. Ask what type of online training and support do they provide?
I recommend you take a look at this video then contact me and we can discuss your next step.


Cash back on everything you buy already June 14, 2013 at 7:17 pm

It’s impressive that you are getting thoughts from this article as well as from our argument made here.


Ray June 15, 2013 at 10:54 am

Hi Doug,
I am thinking about joining ACN mostly because the residual income possible from getting businesses to switch over their gas and electric cost. I was told that before I can offer this service I need to build a team. I am familiar with network marketing and believe I could build a team if I choose. My concern is the quality of service that ACN provides. In other posts I’ve read people have said that they are not saving any money by switching toACN’s services and the customer service and billing is a nightmare. Other post say the complete opposite of course. If ACN offers the same quality as the name brand companies I would not have a problem selling their services.I do not want to have my friends and family switch over their services and have lower quality on their internet, cell phone, TV and technical support. Do you go through ACN for your cable, cell phone and energynif so what has your experience been like?


Doug DeMercurio June 15, 2013 at 10:04 pm


I am not an ACN rep, but I have coached many of their reps.
Here are the most common issues I hear from them:
1- Difficulty enrolling customers because customers are reluctant to break their current contracts.
So you need a terrific contact management and follow up system, or you will be lost.
2- Not all ACN products are available universally, so training new reps becomes difficult if they
are in an area that does not have the same services or products as you
3- Most of them have had no upline marketing training and support once they joined
(they get the standard “make a list of people you know and get them to join – everyone uses these service…)
4- Technology will continue to change rapidly (how does the product compare to what’s new today)

A few reps who have called me were very upset with the installation of the ACN phone system.
I have no personal experience with ACN services or products.

Feel free to call me and we can set up a free 15 minute consultation 970-218-8101


Craig August 6, 2013 at 7:25 pm

I’m really struggling at ACN. I’m broke, and I’ve run out of leads. Please help me.


Doug DeMercurio August 11, 2013 at 10:21 am

I’ll be happy to visit with you about how you can grow a successful business.
I sent you a private email.


Amanda August 23, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Hello Doug,
If you could privately email me that would be great! I would like to get your advice on how to get leads without bugging friends and family!


Doug DeMercurio August 31, 2013 at 12:32 pm

I’ll be happy to.


Nicole Jones October 5, 2013 at 6:38 am

Hi Doug,
Very interested to learn more. I believe I have the mindset and the work ethic to make this work. I truly believe people get into things without read watching the good as well as the bad. There are opportunities out there, but they don’t work unless you work.
Looking for attractive marketing examples.
Best Regards


Doug DeMercurio October 5, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Your comment tells me that you can succeed in whatever you choose to do.
Let me know how I can best be of help to you.
If you would like a free 15 minute coaching consultation, send me an email to with your phone number
and the best time to contact you…and put “free Coaching” in the subject line


Frank November 3, 2013 at 2:14 pm

Hi Doug,

Great article.. I’m eager to learn more since I just signed up last week. If you can email me and let me pick your brain thr would be great. Thanks!


Frank November 3, 2013 at 2:28 pm

And btw, alot of people say it’s impossible, it’s not. If you want to succeed, you WILL. No one said it was easy, people just tend not to have the focus and the drive to make it happen resulting in them throwing in the towel. But it’s proven to work if you put in your time and EFFORT. Much easier than painting 40-50 hours a week for the rest of my life!


Eddie January 7, 2014 at 5:38 am

Hello Doug,
i am hoping to join acn soon, so i am doing a little bit of research. So far everything looks like i expected. Some people say its a scam because they didnt make the effort and the others say it is an amazing opportunity. Now i have been debating and becoming a rep. I dont know much about network marketing or sales. I would greatly appreciate it if you can email me with any thoughts about what i should do.
Thank you,


Doug DeMercurio January 8, 2014 at 9:33 pm

Ed, Thanks for visiting my website. I will connect with you by email.


Doug January 29, 2014 at 11:27 am

Doug how are you? I’m Currently struggling and I’ve run out of leads and I would like to get my ACN business rolling. I have a great upline but my current job keeps me from the help that I could recieve with them. Is there anything I can do in my very little spare time to get things rolling?


Doug DeMercurio February 9, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Building any business requires a time commitment. That’s one of the nice things about a network marketing business – you can build it part time while keeping your regular job.
If it’s the time of day that keeps you from getting support from your upline, you might consider switching your marketing strategy to use the internet more. Once you have your online system set up, it can work for you 24/7.
If you would like advice on what system would work best for you, send me an email to and I’ll be happy to help you out.


Sayed February 1, 2014 at 9:22 am

Hello Doug,
I am U.K based, It has been a month since i have joined ACN, unfortunately, i did not receive the bonus after 30 days, i have managed to make two reps, one which my mentor put in my downline, i do have a supportive upline, who hold regular motivational events.
However, some friends and family are reluctant to become a rep or even a customer, which is frustrating.
The team that i am working with are earning quite well, some £4,000 per month.
However, the ACN policy is to approach the ‘warm market’ , i.e: friends and family, it is difficult as some are already on contracts, furthermore, product quality is also questionable.
What my team are focusing on is to sign up energy customers, as the BIG SIX ENERGY COMPANIES are more expensive than the energy company provided by ACN, that is guaranteed.
But, approaching friends and family can be embarrassing, I would not want to pester them in desperation, it would otherwise strain our relationships or friendships.
Therefore, i need a legitimate method of acquiring customers, otherwise my whole business venture will stall prematurely, before it has started.


Doug DeMercurio February 9, 2014 at 5:28 pm

Many companies rely solely on warm-market recruiting (family and friends), because this is what worked best in the past. The problem is they don’t tell you how to do it properly. If you would like to have people calling you instead of you chasing them, check out these free videos on attraction marketing .
In addition, the world has changed and people today communicate and build relationships differently. It’s much easier to build a network marketing business today if you leverage the internet. I can certainly help you with that. I’ll conect with you directly by email.


a c n February 27, 2014 at 8:02 pm

I visit day-to-day some websites and blogs to read content, however this website provides feature based content.


Doug DeMercurio March 1, 2014 at 6:00 pm

Glad you find this site valuable. Good luck in your marketing.


James Lee May 4, 2014 at 1:21 pm

Hey Doug i’m 21 yrs old, im motivated, and most of all determined to make a million dollars, I just found out about ACN and I did realize that it is not a scam but instead a EFFORT=CASH business opportunity . I want to gain maximum results from ACN but cant seem to figure out where to start, PLEASE contact me with some words of guidance.


Lilly May 7, 2014 at 1:05 pm

Hi Doug,

I just joined ACN recently and I’m struggling to find people to join. Please email me. Thank you


Doug DeMercurio May 8, 2014 at 6:57 am

I have sent you a private email.
Congrats on taking action to create extra income with a home based business. I always recommend that a new networker start with learning how to have prospects calling you instead of you chasing them.. You can do that by watching these 7 FREE videos on attraction marketing
Good luck.
Call me once you’ve watched the videos and we’ll discuss the next step.


razaq July 19, 2014 at 8:32 am

Hi Doug I am with ACN can you email me more information on how to get leads? I have ran out of people nobody signed up still want to continue but i would kindly need more Information on how to do so .


Doug DeMercurio July 19, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Sure Balal, I’ve sent you a private email, but the message could be helpful to others as well.

What you are facing is very common, especially if you join through a sponsor who does not provide you with marketing training or support.

Luckily… there is a solution!

The place to start is by learning the right way to approach people.
Most companies do not give their distributors this type of training.

I recommend you get the book “Magnetic Sponsoring” .
Everyone on my team starts with this as the foundation for how we do business.

You can get the book here:
