ACN Inc Reviews
About ACN Inc
ACN Inc, founded in 1993, is a telecommunications firm out of North Carolina that offers a variety of products. The company offers such services as long distance and local phone plans, digital phone service, and other telecommunication related items.
ACN, Inc has been around for over 17 years and operates in nineteen different countries. Since being in business they have grown their company and have adapted to many of the world’s technological changes.
Their comprehensive services now let their inderdebendnet business distributors profit from the sales of television, high speed internet, online payment, gas, electric, home security and automation services.
ACN Business Opportunity:
The company relies on a peer to peer network of direct sales, or what they call relationship marketing. Many large supplement, skin care, and home goods companies use this model because it allows them to spread quickly without a massive advertising budget.
By allowing people the chance to be independent business owners and bring marketing down to the individual level they can allocate more of the company’s assets on product development and other benefits.
Likewise, as an IBO you have the chance to partner with a large company that will provide you with the backend tools that you need to succeed.
Through ACN you have the chance to market plans to people who are already committed to using these services. If you can show them that they can save money or get a better value through an ACN plan then you will earn a recurring commision.
They also offer you the option of working with small businesses which allows you to grow your sales reach beyond residential service or your own personal network.
There are a variety of ways to get the help or answers that you need from ACN. They have detailed contact instructions on their website or you can call the headquarters directly at (704) 260-3000.
ACN is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and holds an A rating with them. They are also part of the Direct Selling Association in the U.S.
However actual customer experiences vary across the board. Some people have complained about the relatively high cost of starting up with ACN while others were very uncomfortable hosting people in their homes for sales presentations - not something that is required of reps.
On the other hand there are comments from folks who have been able to get a significant number of sales and claim to be making a decent income from the residual commissions.
Sales is a tough business regardless if you’re an independent business owner working direct sales, or if you’re an employee of a major corporation. It all comes down to your ability to get leads and convert them into paying customers.
The benefit of ACN is that they are letting you resell what have now become essential services such as high speed internet, so essentially you are not pitching a new product purchase but a switch in providers.
If you are a customer of ACN or have worked as an IBO please leave a detailed review below and describe if you enjoy their services, have had any issues with their plans, or how you fared in building a business through them.

The bottom line is that if you put in the work you'll have success. I first heard about the opportunity from a friend and he trained me on how to really do it well. I did my own research on ACN and spoke to many employees before I jumped in. They work with integrity and it's definitely not a scam. Anyone who says that is uneducated on the business. ACN provides value for its customers so if you work hard, you'll sell. Period.
The most important part to our company is that our customers simply become our customers without it costing them a penny out of pocket. I strongly believe this is the best company in the world, after visiting numerous networking company events, I made my decision after traveling to the Charlotte International n in 2013. If you are interested in becoming business owner with our company make it your duty to be a part of this event, the training and the people are like no other. My only suggestion is, never think about quitting or listening to people who never took professional part in the industry.
Top notch in self development and mentors! Finding some of my best friends who have been such a positive impact on my familyâ€™s lives.
Why not be a part of a company that not only helps you grow but also get paid when friends and family are going to pay these bills anyway. It just makes sense when a company partners with feeding children in the process. If you are not a part of ACN, I recommend finding a company that fits your lifestyle. This world needs better people that help other people.
Tapping into the greatest redistributions of wealth in history? (Energy, banking, telecommunications). For only $499? Are you kidding me? This is amazing!
Beyond the nature of the services offered, ACN rises above with award winning mentorship. Those who plug into the proven system and work hard win. Those who don’t, well… they’re always welcome to start working hard when they’re ready to start again.
Question 1: When did you but your cell phone? Weeks ago? Months ago? Years ago?
Question 2: When did you pay your cell phone bill? Last month. The month before. The month before that…etc. Every month since you bought it, right?
Why not make money off of services you’re going to pay for forever anyways? Better yet, why not get your service for FREE forever? (i.e. ACN’s Strive For 5 promotion.)
Welcome to ACN.
From my experience with ACN, I believe ACN is more of a long term business. When you compare to other companies, you actually need to find real customers more than just selling the products to your downlines. So if you are looking for a short term business, it will be hard for you. But If you are willing to find the customers and help/work with your business partners to find their customers, you will have a lot success.
First of all ACN is legit...most of people who quit and complain ate this who actually never really put effort into their investment. It's like opening a stir ..if you don't open and promote your store ..you don't make money...this like anything else..what you put into it is what you get out of it...Do your research...Xoom energy is # 13 on the top 500 of the Fortune 500 companies...Now if that doesn't seem legit then I don't know what to tell you...RESEARCH AND UNDERSTAND BEFORE ASSUMING
The problem isn't really the products and services themselves. It's the way so many of their reps are told to 'grow their business'. Some drink the Kool-aid and don't bother getting real sales training.
1) You get asked to go a meeting without any real explanation but "I just want to show you something". Well, I bet you if the person asking you to go is more upfront, less people would be inclined to think it's 'shady' but the initial approach gives a negative on the first impression.
2) Using your network of family and friends could be volatile to how your relationships end up if business is involved amongst them. I also found that the person who tried to recruit me always tried to sound desperate and/or give me a guilt trip about "Not helping her out". Look, if it really was a good deal, I would have signed up myself. Also, my family was going through a rough time with some serious issues and when I was badgered repeatedly about signing up to 'help her out', I lost it. My daughter was in a suicidal state of mind and the ACN person snapped with "Well are you going to sign up or not?" after I told her about my daughter's attempt on her own life.
3) Money-driven. There is nothing that has shown me from the reps of ACN that I have met and know that they even believe in the products or services they are pandering. It's all about the amount of money you *could* be making, but yet, I only see a small number of out that huge team that is actually making any real money.
I would not want to be a part of a business who have people like this in their fold. From the get-go, the recruitment starts with a concealment, not disclosure. When people are signing up for phone lines or whatever, they are not informed of extra fees etc. Unless you're willing to work like you were opening up your own shop (I am an entrepreneur going onto my 8th year of being in business in the communications field) and spend 8extra hours a day on top of your regular day, then don't expect quick return. If you know a lot of gullible people willing to shove $500 to your cause and join your team, by all means. I noticed the woman who tried to recruit me had a lot of kids ages of 18-22, unsure of their paths in life be the backbone of her organization. If you get 20 people under you and even if only 1/3 of them are willing to put in the time and effort, you'll be fine. However, be prepared to give up friendships, relationships with some family members to attain your MLM goals.
You notice how condescending some of the pro-ACN posters are?

Hey well to any of the people who think ACN is a scam are either broke or think like a broke person because they are part of a group called "P.O.O.R" which means to
they are part of the 95% of people who live paycheck to paycheck even if they own their own business they will never be debt free and will always have to work one day or another.
I just started in ACN and Loving It!!!
Gee thanks Diana, I'm sure that's a great recruitment tool you use. Let's make people who are already struggling in life to feel even worse about themselves! Are you all angry because no one wanted to 'help you out'?
I find this mentality very rampant in this MLM fraternity/sorority. If they aren't helping you, they aren't worth anything to you. Wow, I hope all the relationships lost for all the supposed money to be made was all worth it.
This PYRAMID CULT preys on uneducated, unsuspecting targets and BRAINWASHES THEM. They will convince you how BAD your life was before they came into the picture. They CHARGE you 500 dollars to "work" for them. ANYONE who asks YOU for your HARD EARNED MONEY to work for them: RUN!!!!They employ high level officials to come in and help the new recruits with the BRAINWASHING. They flash pictures of Donald Trump ( who is intolerable to begin with, but he is a PAID endorser;) yachts, mansions with huge pools and ocean views. GIVE ME A BREAK. They trick you into having PERFECT STRANGERS MEET at YOUR HOME. Perfect if you want a floor plan and inventory if you are a convicted MURDERER,RAPIST or THIEF because they do NO BACKGROUND checks on these low-life's that will potentially be REQUIRED to ENTER YOUR HOME! They try to dictate EVERY move you make to be to THEIR ADVANTAGE: NOT YOURS. Midnight calls are COMMON. Hooting and hollering and loud music at their night time cult meetings. Remember? Adolph Hitler used to meet in the dark of night. ACN does not want to exterminate you. They want to EXTERMINATE YOUR beautiful life as you know it. I would rather live under a bridge or jump OFF one before dealing with these criminals. WHY the F.B.I; C.I.A or I.R.S. does not take them down IMMEDIATELY is beyond me. They hover just enough, above our legal system in order to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. We had one nice service, bundled and now we HAVE THREE SEPARATE SERVICES "provided" by ACN and our BILLS are ASTRONOMICAL. It would take us a 1000 years to re-coupe the TIME and EFFORT and UNECESSARY CASH spent thus far. My wife is SO FAR INTO THEM, it has caused our DIVORCE. I don't care if GOD, himself came down and asked me to join ACN!!! If your "friend or family" ( their exact targets of PREY,) come to you and ask you to "switch over to..." SLAM THE DOOR AND NEVER TALK TO THEM AGAIN! YOUR LIFE WILL BE RUINED. Again: ACN CAUSED OUR FAMILY TO SPLIT UP. RUN! GO ON WELFARE!! ANYTHING!!
