I have been working at Best Version Media as a contractor (less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
(1) I have been in the publishing industry at the Vice-President and Publisher level for 18 years. This is the most unique concept I have run across. Never have I found an opportunity to start your own business in the advertising sales arena, make 80 percent commission and not have to deal with design, layout, printing, distribution, etc. Your main function is to go out and sell the ads and build the relationships within the community. Hence you are compensated solely on your ability to generate revenue via advertising sales. Small businesses and professional practices across a wide-spectrum of industries have found BVM magazines to be the most effective, micro-targeted way to directly reach this most affluent audience comprised of their best future customers.
(2) With Best Version Media, what you see is what you get. Unlike a similar concept offered by another company, BVM does not require you to work on other people’s magazines until you prove yourself. Nor does BVM require you to host special events every month. From the initial interview, I have found the people in Best Version Media to be nothing but direct, straight-forward, honest and fun! No hidden surprises.
(3) Individualized training is done in very small groups (generally not more than a handful of people) in multiple regional locations throughout the United States. This is not a situation where 75-100 people fly in from all over the country to a central location and all train together via a lecture situation in a huge auditorium.
(4) No matter how hard you try, you’ll not find negative reviews or complaints about Best Version Media. This is a credible, legitimate company. No up-front money, no multi-level marketing. This is simply a group of individuals who love publishing and advertising.
(5) An extreme amount of support is there if you want it. Your support includes multiple training calls, back-office archives of training on a multitude of subjects, and a very simplistic easy-to-follow training manual. You’ll have as much or as little contact with your district and regional manager as you choose. And if you simply follow the recommendations, it is very difficult to not succeed with this company.
I haven’t found any negatives about the company per se, however this position does require a very motivated and self-driven individual with an entrepreneurial spirit. Although this may not be the case for everyone, you should realistically plan on having about three months of income to live on before you start making money. You will be compensated based on your drive, determination and your ability to simply follow their recommended matrices. This, to me, is an advantage and not a disadvantage. If you consider this to be a disadvantage, then Best Version Media may not be the right fit for you. However, if this is appealing and challenging to you, this opportunity will probably be the last time you look for a job.
Advice to Management
No advice to senior management. Instead, I’m going to entitle this “ADVICE TO THOSE CONSIDERING THIS POSITION.”
(1) I started at the beginning of 2015 and have vast experience in the advertising sales arena with a multitude of products. My only recommendation is this. Do your research on this company and, for that matter, any others you may be considering. It has to be right for you before it’s ever going to be right for Best Version Media. However, as for Best Version Media, I doubt you’ll find anything negative anywhere, even on the internet. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
(2) If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to consider Best Version Media, then do your research, pray about it and see what direction you feel comfortable going. I’m just one person out of 300-plus publishers throughout North America, but because of the unique nature of my background, I am confident you won’t find a more honest, fun-loving, integrity-based, supportive company in this field anywhere. IF, and I stress IF, this opportunity plays to your strengths, be confident Best Version Media is exactly what they say it is.
