ACN began in 1993 in Concord, North Carolina as American Communications Network.
They changed their name to just ACN once they expanded their operations overseas.
In this ACN review I will explain why you should avoid joining this Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company.
What is ACN?
ACN is a telecommunications and energy company that also offers other related products and services depending on the country it is located in.
Their business model is set up in the realm of an MLM with members who are called IBOs, Independent Business Owners.
The company was founded by Robert Stevanovski, Greg Provenzano, and the brothers Anthony and Michael Cupisz.
Like many of the MLM companies I review, and you should know by now that I am very skeptical of most, ACN has many problems associated with it that you need to know.
Because they are a private company and United States based, they do not need to post an income disclosure.
That to me is a red flag, especially when they bait people into thinking that they can make great residual income and eventually become independently wealthy.
Now I realize that independent performance will play a role in what a person makes, but being totally unclear into what someone can “possibly” make just sounds to shady to me.
What do you think? Would you get involved with a company that doesn’t even hint at what you can make?

How do you Make Money at ACN?
The answer to this question is a bit of a mystery because nowhere on the ACN website do they explain their compensation plan.
The only thing I could find out from further research on the internet from their IBOs, are that there are 7 or 8 levels of income and the bottom 2 or 3 levels only make 1% of sales.
With amazing claims from ACN top IBO members that go on to say that financial and personal freedom allowing people to live the lives they have always dreamed of, will make anyone sit up and take notice.
If you were looking for a way to obtain financial freedom, would you not be interested in what ACN could offer?
The obvious answer is yes, but first be reasonable.
Seek out the possibilities of what you could make and what their compensation plan is.
If you cannot find any clear answers, then stop and look elsewhere.
This is a clear warning-sign that something is not right.
When an MLM company is putting up smoke and mirrors as to what you could make, forcing you to go elsewhere to get your answer, then ask yourself, what are they hiding?
However ACN has no problem telling you what you have to spend to become one of these financially free people, more on this in just a bit.
What I Liked About ACN
This is the part of my review where most times than not I find it difficult to find something I like about the company I am reviewing.
Because I know of the facts that show about 80 to 90% of people who get involved in an MLM, will not make money, and if they do it is not enough to even pay the bills.
But to give a response to what I liked about ACN, I will say that they do have quality telecommunication products and services.
However, I do not feel they are worth the cost.
I am getting ahead of myself here by stating what I didn’t like.
Perhaps I’ll just get right into what I didn’t like.
What I Didn’t Like About ACN
This section could read like a book but I will try to be as brief and to the point as possible.
There are many things about ACN that I do not like.
As I said just above, the cost for their products and services are too expensive, especially when you can find other commercial providers that offer the same level of products for less.
The cost for you to become one of these IBOs in training that will eventually experience financial freedom is $499.00 with a $149.00 annual renewal fee.
Then though ACN “claims” this is optional, you have to pay a monthly $39.99 fee for the “Your Business Assistant” that is said to give you EVERYTHING you need.
If this is supposed to give you everything needed for success, why claim it is optional?
That just doesn’t make sense.
Who is going to turn down something that will give them everything needed for success for $39.99 per month?
And if the Your Business Assistant gives you everything, why pay the following fees?
More Things I Didn’t Like about ACN
Now if the Your Business Assistant will give you everything you will ever need to experience success, then why require IBOs to pay these following fees to really be a winner?
The answer is easy, because ACN wants to get as much out of you before you decide to quit.
So check out this nonsense.
All IBOs are required to spend an addition fee up to $10.00 per week for online meetings.
And up to $159.00 plus your additional cost for food and travel accommodations to attend periodic ACN training events.
I read somewhere online that senior IBOs claim that if you do not attend then you shouldn’t even join ACN.
What kind of attitude is that?
Talk about being arrogant and condescending.
But you know what?
I agree in part to what those senior IBOs are saying.
You should definitely NOT join ACN because you will just waste your time and money.
The only way to possibly succeed is to recruit many dumb and blind people to do what you do.

My Final Verdict?
Do not join ACN!
I could have given you many more reasons as to what I didn’t like about this MLM pyramid company but I bet you get the picture.
Besides I wanted to get to the solution that WILL produce for you better results for far less money.
How would you like to make easier money and never have to recruit people, never pay any hidden fees, and not have to attend any events that cost you additional money?
You do not even have to sell any products!
All you do is promote them by writing and giving your opinions.
The money you make will not have to be shared with other members above you in the pyramid because there are no members above you.
There is just you!
What you make, you get to keep!
The products you promote from the comfort of your home are used by most people.
