The Future Of Online Marketing and Social Networking – MARKETHIVE


The Future Of Online Marketing and Social Networking – MARKETHIVE

What Is Markethive?

Markethive is a Market Network, a hybrid: part social network, part marketplace, part SaaS with a News and Press Release Site built in. 

  • Social Network. An online service or site comprised of a connected interpersonal network of individuals, such as friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. Social networks are designed to connect people with others who are a part of the network. This environment nurtures the building of relationships, providing the necessary stepping stones for the growth of “virtual online communities”. Social networking websites offer the ability to stay connected with existing friends, plus opportunities to meet new people.

    Think of a social network as a dedicated website or other application that enables users to communicate with each other by posting information, comments, messages, images, etc. Think of a social network as a 360-degree spherical connection where individuals can share personal information with others in their own network. Some networks even offer private messaging services to provide the ability for real-time communication between members or the ability to leave messages privately.

    As a general rule social networks are not particularly business-oriented or commerce-friendly by design.

  • Marketplace. The term market comes from the Latin Mercatus ("market place"). A marketplace is a location where people regularly gather for the purchase and sale of goods and services. Marketplaces allow for transactions between multiple buyers as well as multiple sellers. A marketplace is an arena of competitive or commercial dealings; the world of trade.

    Fast forward to the realm of the Internet of Things (IoT), and now a marketplace is more commonly seen and represented as highly accessible, streamlined commercial transactions being conducted electronically on the Internet, with an outreach that has no boundaries or limits.

    An online marketplace literally has the ability to expand the borders of even a local business to that of a nationwide outreach, or even worldwide exposure. With the advent of computers, the internet and networking, anyone can do business 24/7 from the comfort of their home or from anywhere, provided they have a computer, laptop, tablet, SmartPhone, and WiFi.

  • SaaS Tool. SaaS tools are for making your job easier. SaaS is the modern way to run the software and integrated tools to enhance, leverage and assist the subscribers’ success to achieve targeted goals within the construct of a particular sphere. Software as a service is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. It is sometimes referred to as "on-demand software”. Reduces complexity, helps to keep pace with innovation, and provides access to experts for support to provide a clear path for your day-to-day tasks and projects.

    One of the most popular forms of cloud computing is SaaS, defined as a software distribution model in which a service provider hosts applications for customers and makes them available to these customers via the internet. The era of installing software from a CD or from a data center’s server is coming to a close, as Internet-delivered software makes applications available anywhere, anytime.


Just as brick and mortar businesses have been and still are falling by the wayside to make room for much bigger and better ways in which to do business online without borders, traditional social networks will need to either evolve into being much more business- and commerce-friendly or get left behind.


Technology, Visionaries, Progress pave the way

In today's economic and technological cultures, what had been seen previously as traditional jobs and long-term employment are now things of the past. Statistics have shown that employees and laborers now work on average for only 4 years or less. More and more, the faces of this new paradigm shift are Entrepreneurs. Reid Hoffman founder of LinkedIn is quoted as saying, "All human beings are entrepreneurs."

Hence, the impetus for designing a platform that will ultimately create real Universal Income that is available for everyone. Essentially that means giving every single person, skilled or unskilled, an avenue and a purpose to get up in the morning and apply themselves every day where they will achieve an income that will grow and eventually give them the autonomy and financial success whether it be through a service they provide, a business they are marketing or a passion they are pursuing. Therefore not worrying or relying upon a job market that is in the decline, but looks forward to retirement and fulfillment on every level. 

It should be noted that Universal [basic] Income has become a new focus of elites, such as Elon Musk. However, this has a different meaning to what I’m talking about here. Although the reason for this topic does affect us which gives rise to the possibility where autonomy, time and financial freedom is an opportunity at hand with Markethive’s Universal Income. [and it’s far from “Basic”]


Attributes of a Successful Market Network.

If you recall from history, back in the days of the Gold Rush, it turned out to be those who provided the tools and resources for the miners who benefited the most financially.

In a Market Network, a many-to-many transaction pattern is key. A Market Network often starts by enhancing a network of professionals that exists offline. Many of them have probably been transacting with each other for years using various offline methods of doing business: phone calls, fax, checks, and overnight packages. When moving all these connections and transactions into software, the creation of a Market Network makes it much easier for professionals to operate their businesses and for clients to get far better service.

  • Market Networks target more complex services. The highest value services are neither simple nor normally objectively judged. They can be more involved and longer term. Market Networks are designed for these types of services.

  • People matter. A Market Network is designed to acknowledge that as a core tenet while providing the best possible solution.

  • Collaboration happens around a project. The SaaS at the center of Market Networks focuses the action on a project that can take days, months or even years to complete.

  • Market Networks help build long-term relationships. For years, social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook have helped build long-term relationships. However, until Market Networks, they hadn’t been used for commerce and transactions.

  • Referrals flow freely. The Market Network software is designed to make referrals simple and more frequent.

  • Market Networks increase transaction velocity and satisfaction. The Market Network grows the closing ratios on proposals and expedites the payment process. The software also raises customer satisfaction scores, reduces miscommunications, and makes the work appealing, with outstanding results.



Starting NOW, there will be many more forward-thinking entrepreneurs stepping forward, with their sights set upon creating increasingly innovative, highly synchronized business models and solutions to doing business in the 21st century and beyond. Those who will be most successful will not only keep up with the speed at which technology continues to change, but they will align themselves ahead of the curve at all times.

Markethive built on the Blockchain with its own coin has made this whole system immutable, transparent, private and autonomous. This is the next generation in Social and Market Media. 

The potential payoff is predicted to be huge. Market Networks like Markethive will have a massive positive impact on how millions of people work and live, and how hundreds of millions of people buy and sell better services.

Markethive – First Market Network On Blockchain

First Market Network On Blockchain – Disruptive?

Today Markethive is disrupting this conventional perspective as Markethive is clearly merging all of these vertical classifications. When a new member signs up via your Entrepreneur upgraded profile page, it produces a valued lead rated at about $200 because of the exclusivity and rich data it produces.

It also represents a revenue return because of the nature of the consumer coin (MHV), financial velocity, faucets, airdrops, and Markethive’s exclusive integrated commerce platforms, thus extending the projected customer lifetime value beyond 10 years with the cost of acquisition averaging under $1 with the airdrop offer and SaaS inbound marketing worth over $2,000 per month for free for life.

Markethive, built on the blockchain, offers complete autonomy, privacy, and transparency with freedom of speech paramount and woven into the fabric of what Markethive stands for. Markethive is the ecosystem for entrepreneurs. As such MH offers many services, upgrades, and commerce platforms. Loyalty programs share with you Markethive net revenues via your upgraded “associates”.

This entire ecosystem turns every member, every connection into long-term customers.


Today’s customer brings their requirements to the organization and becomes an integral part of that organization. In a true, collaborative relationship, all parties reciprocate. It is not just about an exchange of money in return for a good or service anymore. It has become a symbiotic relationship which becomes integrated with the flow of the system, a part of the ecosystem, contributing to the financial velocity of that ecosystem, “The Entrepreneur’s Ecosystem”.

Verizon Bought Yahoo for $4.83 Billion…Time You Bought a Share in Markethive

Verizon Bought Yahoo for $4.83 Billion…Time You Bought a Share in Markethive

Image result for market network

“The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity” ………Peter Drucker

Dollars make “Change” and this is why Verizon smelled the money and came a running resulting in the purchase of Yahoo for $4.83 billion dollars because Digital Advertising (Internet Advertising) generates billions of dollars for competing giants like Google and Facebook.  Nothing like owning a global Internet-Technology platform that swallows up its competition with large volumes of resources to continue the expansion into emerging global markets.  Yep, we see the emergence of a global oligarchy with corporations like Verizon, Facebook and Google, monopolizing online advertising and this is why we must act now to ensure our freedoms are not negotiated away by the pimps (corporations) and prostitutes (political leaders), who make the World’s Oldest Profession look positively saintly when comparing the gargantuan volumes of money exchanged that consummate today’s corporate business deals with government law makers (lol).  Nothing like having vigorous social intercourse between entities that essentially control the economy and the people.  Yes, Free Market Economics and Democracy at work and perfectly legal because, the lawmakers got their cut, I mean donation.

Anyway, back to Digital Advertising or Internet Advertising which is when “businesses leverage Internet technologies to deliver promotional advertising and messages delivered through emails blogs, video, banners, social media websites, social networks, market networks, affiliate programs, search engines and mobile devices”.  Indeed, multiple marketing methods with more eyeballs on products/services to maximize profits in a growing global market that reaches its audience in nanoseconds.  I guess, you can see why Verizon made its move and competitors (Facebook & Google) are about controlling and more importantly monetising content to the max.

So, dominance by these evolving Market-Networks (Facebook, Google & Verizon) continues and this is why you as an entrepreneur need to build your own Network by connecting with likeminded individuals and Social Networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Reddit and countless others that influenced the way we communicate and interact act with each other. 

So, ready to start the process and purchase a share in a growing Market-Network known as Markethive that gives you an unfair advantage as an entrepreneur?  

The Alpha Legacy Special includes the following, full profile page activation (turns subscribers into your customers), receive 200,000 ad credits every month (that can be used at any time), receive 3,000,000 ad credits deposited into your account (that can be used at any time), receive 50% commission for every sale of advertising, every paid Alpha signup that you personally introduce to Markethive (your children). This means your initial contribution will be recovered quickly in our affiliate program and you will always receive far more advertising benefits as well with this program.


5% Revenue Sharing: As an Alpha Legacy, Alpha Lite, Alpha Founder (all now known as Alpha Legacy) as revenue increases each member will receive 1 share per Alpha Legacy account of 5% of the Markethive revenue. No need for contracts as this has now become all inclusive.

Purchase as many as you want. But keep in mind this is a limited offer.

Alpha Legacy is limited to 250 subscriptions which is dwindling fast. The one-time price for this Alpha Legacy Special lifetime partnership has been slashed to $400. (It originally sold for $1200 over a year ago.)

This is our final push to take Markethive across the starting line. We will hold many meetings to help you understand why this could be the best decision of your life. Do you believe Markethive will be the next great social network? We do!

LinkedIn revenue and sales: 2015 ($2.9 billion).

If, you watched Rise of the Entrepreneur then, you would recognize that this company embraces change and adapts to the reality of the conditions of its customers so as to achieve a solution.  Ironically, many companies are resistant to making adjustments to satisfy their customers base.

New Markets and Trends Merge Into Record-Shattering Success For Seasoned Entrepreneur



New Markets and Trends Merge Into Record-Shattering Success For Seasoned Entrepreneur Founder and CEO, entrepreneur, and innovator Tom Prendergast was recently quoted to say, “With the advent of a real Market Network (i.e. Markethive) and an emerging, real customer centric network marketing company (i.e. Valentus), even I was surprised at the ease of building a new empire in this industry”.

In one of his recent online training conferences, Tom explained the evolution of his contrarian philosophy and how he arrived at his present success-maverick by saying:

“I have been an advocate for ending the business practices of buying and selling leads, spam emailing, spam faxes, telemarketing, pop-up ads, billboard ads, and the whole practice known as outbound marketing.”

“In the old days, before the internet came into its prime, these practices worked somewhat but over recent years they have become less and less effective and more and more resented by the general public. I should know because I’ve been using and watching the growth of the internet since its very early days going back to 1991.”

Even before the advent of the internet, Tom was a creative and competitive marketer, running his own ad agency in Silicon Valley and deeply involved in the emerging technology of that time. Within just a few years of that time, Tom was introduced to Network Marketing and he found it very fascinating that anyone with some skill and determination could have a reasonable chance to build a livable income on the internet.

This realization nurtured his empathetic support of struggling prodigies, up and coming entrepreneurs, and anyone who had greater dreams than the typical job afforded them. Tom says, “Although I was aware of buying mailing lists for my ad agency in the 80’s, I was not aware of that technique being used by MLMers to call people supposedly interested in a business opportunity.”

Tom remembers how, much to his shock, he found that most MLM industry leaders of that time who had large followings would tell those they recruited into their pyramid schemes to buy these leads and cold-call them.

Note: keep in mind that these people had very small or nonexistent spheres of influence… especially if they had already been in a network marketing company before.

Tom says, “My instincts told me this was a bad idea and a serious mistake. But these “leaders” promoted this technique because they had no other real options, ability, or intentions to help these people who had just enrolled into one of their deals which always turned out to be just another ‘Hopes and Dreams’ bait-and-switch game.”

This mind-set was painfully illustrated to Tom in a relationship with a friend of his at the time (let’s call him ‘David’) who had a talk show, had published several books, had a strong sphere of influence, had just joined a newly launched MLM deal, and was conducting a teleconference call with all his new recruits.

On that call, David told all the 1000’s of listeners to go to his friend John (i.e. David’s friend) and buy the leads (jwhich John’s company had alledgedly pre-interviewed) for approximately $199 per 100 leads.

Tom remembers his experience with no great joy:

“This was the mid-1990’s. I bought 100 of these leads, costing me $1000, and called them all… and the results were as follows: 80% insults, 15% hang-ups, and the rest ‘no answer’. Not one of the people I talked to remembered any interview. And the rejection level was as high as it gets.”

Tom soon realized that this was an experience that would eliminate anybody new to MLM from any further interest in it…or at least from ‘buying leads’. This is the kind of rejection only ‘boiler room’ telemarketers and well-seasoned sales people can long endure and it is immediate and certain Death to the average person excited about pursuing their dream by working their new MLM opportunity… regardless of how much they like the product.

Two Powerful New Concepts In Internet Business

As the internet seeps into the fabric of global and local business, the evolution of technology and thinking always brings new opportunities for those perceptive enough to see it. Two fairly new concepts are generating a lot of interest for opportunity seekers.

Those two new concepts are (1) Customer Centricity and (2) Inbound Marketing. Think of them like a brother and sister, i.e. different but related and mutually supportive.

Customer Centricity

Tom believes that is the best current example of customer centricity. Very few people see any connection between Amazon and the MLM industry but Tom has been advocating that MLM companies become customer centric for many years. Since a company’s distributors are, in one sense, their ‘customers’, it only makes sense that MLM companies would treat their Distributors very well…but Tom says most don’t.

Tom says, “Less than 1% of MLM industry leaders understand customer centricity and the other 99% are uninterested in it. These companies continue their traditional modus operandi of selling ‘Hopes & Dreams’ wrapped extravagantly in thinly disguised pyramid schemes with overpriced products which rarely do what they are claimed to do and which are difficult if not impossible to the average person to retail.”

This is like running a car without oil for an extended period of time: it might appear to work for a while but when the engine starts smoking, as we see in the MLM industry now, you know it’s too late.

There have, however, been a few MLM companies which made a weak effort to become customer centric. One of these companies, Trivita, abandoned their customer centric efforts when new management was ‘turned by the dark side’ and that decision is destroying the company as commissions have been cut several times during the last three years, dissension is widespread within Distributor ranks, and an accelerating exodus ‘for the door’ if discernible at all levels.

The second company which tried to be customer centric is Beachbody. Beachbody offered a form of Distributor Acquisition based primarily on infomercials (as did Trivita) but the effectiveness of that method of advertising is plummeting dramatically because of falling viewership of traditional cable and ‘dish’ TV networks.

Bottom line… both these companies are in serious trouble.

Tom says that he doesn’t think most companies in the MLM industry are too big to change… even if they wanted to (which very few do). But, those who do chose to embrace this new Customer Centric paradigm must follow these guidelines:

  1. The company focus first on the needs of the customer. Not the Distributor.

  2. Distributors must be able to successfully retail their products at a profit, irrespective of the business opportunity, to retail customers and/or on ecommerce platforms like eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, etc.

  3. A virtual warehouse supporting the distributor by allowing them to purchase in bulk for greater savings while the inventory is kept at the company until the distributor or a customer needs it drop shipped.

  4. The availability of cooperative advertising partnerships which allow the distributor to partner with the company and/or other distributors to share in generated customers and/or recruits at a reduced cost. This has been done by a few companies and it does work.

  5. Other modern technology that should be brought into play are 800 ph# platforms, self-replicated ecommerce site for Amazon, eBay, etc., shopping carts for 3rd level distributors domains, and social media marketing apps which enable easy selling and purchasing on social markets.


‘Good enough’ isn’t good enough anymore. With the marketplace awash in innovation and technology, i.e. innovation which does put the customer right in the center of the equation, yet almost none of it being used my MLM companies… it’s no wonder that most of them are dying on the vine while others fall flat on their faces after their expensive, Hollywood style launches.

It takes a lot more than a slightly attractive website, a celebrity spokesperson, a few halfway decent videos, and a cute infographic for the company comp plan to ensure company success today.

What’s Next?

It is only a matter of time before a young, bold, tech and marketing savvy entrepreneur launches the first true customer centric MLM company similar to the above-mentioned guidelines. Tom and the community members at Markethive believe that when somebody does launch such a company the world will quake, the swamps will empty and the first truly multi-trillion MLM enterprise will rise to stand equally with other successful trailblazers like Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc.

Such a company will use Inbound Marketing rather than Outbound Marketing techniques.

Old school MLM marketing is almost totally ‘outbound’ marketing oriented. Successful MLM companies must use Inbound Marketing. The difference is that ‘outbound’ marketing is hunting´´ for customers and recruits whereas ‘inbound’ marketing attracts´´ customers and recruits.

The Market Network – The New Leading Edge Of Digital Business and Society

But if there is anything else (and there is!), a magical new catalyst, in the digital world… it’s the Market Network.

What is the Market Network?

Let’s put it in perspective first:

First there was direct selling, then there was direct selling companies, then there was MLM companies with their deceptively alluring, misapplied, and ultimately corrupting element of recruiting, then…there was the internet.

The internet and particularly Facebook and Youtube, had a profound affect on business, marketing, and even the MLM industry. But it only went as far as social media.

There is something else and this is exactly what Markethive is… the first fully functional Marketing Network because it combines the three elements of a Market Network:

  1. A social community united around a shared theme (e.g. entrepreneurship)

  2. An organic virtual marketplace´´ of buyers and sellers.

  3. SaaS (Software as a service to facilitate transactions among the community).

The marketplace is a place for transactions among community members. Examples are eBay, Etsy, Uber, and LendingClub.

Networks provide the social element, i.e. a person’s identity, and allows everybody to communicate everybody else. Think Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

The SaaS is software, e.g. the proprietary functionality freely available to all Markethive members and which Markethive can use to allow its members to form Market Networks with companies like Valentus and possibly in the future…others.

Tom says, “The amazing embodiment of these concepts is what we see today with the joint venturing between Dave Jordan’s Valentus company and an elite group of Markethive community members. Markethive was created for a time such as this.”

Does anybody remember, “Build it and they will come”?

Guess what?

It’s been built and they’re here.

Tom told his Valentus Team members recently, “Valentus has experienced record growth in record time and by all indications is about to enter ‘Momentum’. Only with a company like Valentus could I have reached the levels I have in record-breaking time. And we haven’t fired the “main guns” of our most powerful Markethive technology yet. You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Tom credits much of his success to Valentus’s foundational, weightloss coffee product. People respond well to our unique question, “Who do you know who likes coffee and would like to lose some weight?” The fact that the product is priced to sell well even at retail is just an extra.”

The bottom line here is that Valentus’s explosive growth is because it’s a real business founded on a basic principle of of Business 101: “Buy low and sell high!”

Tom told his group, “I give credit for the record-breaking growth of my little Valentus distributorship to the unique and timely partnership between Markethive and Valentus. Indeed Inbound Marketing and the first fully functional Market Network has found the first truly customer centric company in the MLM industry and I know that others who join our unique team will experience similar success if they work hard.”

Market-Network: A New Type of Business Model

Market-Network: A New Type of Business Model

Social network. Marketplace. SaaS. These buzzwords are no longer synonyms of massive business opportunities.

The gold rush has already happened.

But a new business model has emerged.

Market-networks are hybrid animals: part social network, part marketplace, part SaaS. [1]

It’s a social network. Professionals use profile pages to showcase their work and demonstrate their credibility. They also connect with each other and build relationships.

It’s a marketplace. Professionals come online together to find other parties with whom they can do business.

It’s a SaaS tool. Professionals use the tools on the top of the marketplace to negotiate, do the job, or manage the paperwork.

Social networks are designed to connect people. Marketplaces are built to sell simple products and services at scale. SaaS tools are here to make your job easier.

Market-networks focus on more complex services; the types of services that are not easily scalable and require more human collaboration. [1]

So get your pick-axe and prepare yourself for the next gold rush.

Think about the number of opportunities in M&A, scientific research, construction, management consulting, marketing, media production…

[1] Thanks to James Currier for sharing his thoughts on this emerging business model.

[2] Here are a couple of examples:

AngelList is a market-network.

It’s a social network for startups and investors. It’s a marketplace where business angels can find startups to invest in and startups can post job openings. It’s a SaaS tool that helps business angels create syndicates and startups get introduced to business angels.

Contently is a market-network.

It’s a social network for freelance writers. It’s a marketplace where companies can find writers to create content—articles, eBooks, and other kinds of marketing collateral. It’s a SaaS tool that helps content marketers organize their editorial calendar, manage the writers’ work, and track the performance with analytics.
