    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I set my own schedule and make as much money as I want to earn! Great support, fantastic culture (yes the culture is REAL)

    Cons

    None! I essentially received a franchise for free, training for free, I run my business and have unlimited income.... How could I have any cons??

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what we do, how we do it. The growth is nothing short of amazing!

    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am competely flabbergasted by the reviews that claim BVM is a scam. What is it you don’t understand? What’s the mystery? It is VERY plainly and thorougly explained. The opportunity is not for everyone. But a scam? That is a ridiculous statement. My experience after 3 years has been both challenging and rewarding. Call hard work what you’d like but don’t misappropriate the work or the model as a scam.

    Cons

    The opportunity requires self discipline, hard work and determination to suceed. If you don’t possess, don’t apply.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t interview ignorant people!!

    Pros

    Outstanding opportunity to work independent with a great support network and full "staff"

    Cons

    It can be difficult in the beginning as this is a 1099 position with no compensation upfront. So interested applicants should be prepared to cover their living expenses for a few months. Depending on your effort, as in any position, you can advance to a solid 5 or even 6 figure income with the full support of the company EVERY step of the way

    Advice to Management

    Be clear in solicitations and outreach that this is a 1099 sales position, while reassuring applicants that they will receive full training and support.

    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a local publisher for Best Version Media is both very rewarding monetarily and emotionally. The residents that get my magazine LOVE it! I really appreciate the flexibility this position gives me. This is the first time in my career that I feel like I have a lot of work/life balance. Wish I had found BVM 5 years ago. Just referred a close friend and she is doing great.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to make phone calls to schedule appointments with local business owners in order to give our presentation. My plan is to ultimately hire an appointment setter to help me with this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing :) Thank you for the opportunity. I REALLY appreciate it.

    Great culture that starts at the top
    Leadership is incredible
    Everyone has a voice--if you have an idea, it's heard
    Growing company

    Cons

    General cons of a quickly-growing company. They maintain the family feeling but it can be intimidating having new faces coming in all the time
