Associates/Loyal Customers Director
All statements on this website regarding earnings, income, effort, and/or your likelihood of success are estimates based upon what our most successful Associates have experienced. Expect that you will not do as well as any of them. In fact, most consumers never recoup the amount they spend on our products and services. Your success is determined by many factors, including your desire, dedication, effort, and ability to follow directions, personal talent, and consumer demand for the products and/or services in your marketing efforts. These factors are beyond our control.
The endorsements on this site are from actual customers. These individuals have achieved their stated levels of success, in part, by becoming marketing Associates/Loyal Customers for Slimline Marketingï¿½. None of the endorsers have received any form of compensation for their statements; though they do receive income from their SLIMLINE MARKETINGï¿½ related Associates/Loyal Customers-marketing activities. Most importantly, these endorsers have achieved a significant level of success from having devoted a lot of time and resources in developing their businesses. For each of our endorsers, success was neither quick nor easy. You should anticipate numerous challenges. Many will try, some will succeed.
We make no guarantees, express or implied, regarding your experiences and results. Running a business involves numerous risks. Perform your due diligence before you purchase anything from us. Obtain advice from an attorney, accountant, or other qualified professionals before starting. By purchasing and using our products and services, you are expressly agreeing to assume the risk associated with their use and sale. You are also agreeing that our company is not responsible for any losses you may experience.
Slimline Marketingï¿½ is primarily a Marketing company that focuses upon giving our customers the ability to purchase products through our online replicated websites as well as face to face sales of our products. Our most successful customers have utilized our products for personal use and referred others who seek to do the same. Information regarding our customerï¿½s success is both difficult to quantify and proprietary to their businesses. Consequently, we do not have any empirically valid data indicating the amount of profit growth, if any, that our customers achieve from referring others. Only some of our Associates/Loyal Customers have the potential to receive revenue from SLIMLINE MARKETINGï¿½ related to Associates/Loyal Customers-marketing activities. We have not begun the payments for referral and therefore there is not current data to reflect success.
