What Is Send Out Cards UK? Have you heard of Send Out Cards before?

If not, Send Out Cards was established in 2003 by its owner and CEO Kody Bateman in Salt Lake City, Utah and is an on-line greeting card company that allows its users to send a real physical card by stuffing, stamping and posting the card on your behalf. It is a member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA) and has around 150,000 self-employed distributors worldwide.

You may have used similar services in the UK, such as Moonpig or Funky Pigeon, but what is really unique about Send Out Cards service is that it has a FREE Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) and e-mail reminder system so you never have to forget an important date again.

Unfortunately, many people have the wrong perception of what Network Marketing is, so I thought it would be useful to explain exactly what is Networking Marketing all about.

Definition: Network Marketing is a business model in which a network of distributors is used to build the business. It is a legitimate business. Instead of paying huge amounts in advertising and sponsorship, for high profile people to endorse their products, Network Marketing companies pay a portion of every sale, by way of commission, to the distributors within the company who market the product on the company’s behalf by word of mouth.
