Financial Destination – FDI Merges With Youngevity

Who is FDI? – FDI Merges With Youngevity

FDIFinancial Destination or FDI is a Network Marketing benefits company.  The company has a product line featuring Financial Services, Wellness, and Telecom services.  In an era of increasing costs, decreasing value, and economic uncertainty, FDI is offering their unique brand of benefits that have the potential to impact consumers and their reps in a positive way.

FDI’s History – Finding Their Way

Over the years FDI has made several changes to their business, they began as a financial literacy company.  Looking to expand and increase retention FDI merged with a telecom company GI Connect to form FDI International.  FDI International was set to be focused on Telecom with a suite of business benefits.  Unfortunately the company’s cultures did not mesh well and as quickly as FDI and GI Connect merged they separated.  However, that did not stop FDI, the company went on to introduce FDI Voice and FDI Mobile through their own partnerships and strategic moves and began to focus on the trends surrounding the hand’s free laws with solutions to prevent texting and driving.  From their FDI seemed to have found a good path to move down; however they changed their focus once again.  FDI recently began marketing and leading with a free discount pharmacy card, that gives customers a way to save on their 15 to 85% on prescription drugs giving distributors a way to give free value and create income when consumers save on the cost of medication.

So FDI is a resilient company with an extremely loyal distributor base that has stayed the course in spite of all the changes inside the marketing plan.  This may be in part due to FDI’s revolutionary recognition program and the strength of their field leadership.
