If you’re here you’re at least curious about the latest entry in this growing niche or perhaps your looking for a new company that you can get behind and build something big. To be clear I have no involvement with American Gold Reserve –AGR, that’s why in this 3rd party review – I’ll give you an unbiased look into the corporate team, the products and their price, the compensation plan, and how you can position yourself for success in the American Gold Reserve MLM business.
The American Gold Reserve Product Line – AGR Review
Again if you’re here, you probably already knew that American Gold Reserve is marketing gold and silver bullion bars and rounds. A bullion coin is simply a coin struck from precious metal in this case Silver and Gold and held as a store of value as an investment – as bullion is not typically used in day-to-day trade.
American Gold Reserve requires a minimum order of 1 single item for gold and a single container for silver – which is typical for the bullion business. The gold and silver products AGR sells are fabricated by the Old Glory Mint, which has been in business since 2009 and is owned and operated by the owners of American Gold Reserve. The company currently offers rounds in sizes ranging from one gram up to one kilogram. The price of the product, the affiliate auto-ship, and commissions will move with the gold and silver market.
American Gold Reserve – The Company and Leadership
AGR or American Gold Reserve was founded on a simple principle and mission “to put as much gold and silver as possible into the hands of as many people as possible, as easily as we can, and at the lowest possible price.”
The company was founded by the founders of the Old Glory Mint and AGR is based out of Orem, Utah. Reed Larsen is one of the founders of Old Glory Mint, and the CEO of AGR. Mr. Larsen’s professional experience has been centered on managing financial services businesses. He started out as a successful mortgage loan officer in a small company, eventually moving on to become Treasurer, then President, of the Utah Association of Mortgage Brokers, an organization he also helped found. Seeing the “storm clouds on the horizon” in the lending industry and in the economy in general, Reed transitioned into the precious metals industry where he helped build and continues to manage one of the largest-capacity private mints in America.
AGR has attracted Ron Spence as their founding Master Affiliate, according to the corporate website Ron has 30 years of senior experience in the MLM industry that includes having been CEO of two Network Marketing companies and having been a master distributor for three different MLM companies where he built large organizations creating millions in revenue.
Is the American Gold Reserve Compensation Plan as Good as Gold?
American Gold Reserve makes it very easy to participate in the business as there is no purchase required to become an AGR Affiliate. However there are two ways to become an affiliate. The first is by becoming an AGR customer by purchasing a product from the American Gold Reserve website, after purchasing a product simply obtain an affiliate ID and personally refer a new customer who makes a purchase of gold or silver. The second way to participate in the American Gold Reserve compensation plan is by obtaining an affiliate ID and personally referring two new customers who purchase a product from AGR.
The AGR Compensation Plan is a simple a 3X9 matrix. A matrix is a compensation plan that simply fills the open spots in the matrix 3 wide and 9 level deep. A matrix compensation plan can promote team work, while at the same time creating a spill over effect. Keep in mind spill over and the promise of spill over can be good and bad, it’s great when you have cooperation, its awful when people are lazy or feel entitled to spill over. All in all, the AGR compensation plan allows affiliates to earn commissions on their retail sales, 3×9 matrix overrides, matching check overrides through 3 levels, and retail sales bonus pools.
