One of the arguments that I’ve seen MonaVie Distributors make lately is the sweeping statement of “You can’t trust the Internet.” Most recently it came up in this comment. Let’s examine if you can trust the Internet or not… and then try to figure out why a MonaVie distributor might make this claim.
Can you Trust the Internet
The Internet is similar to any other medium… there is information that you can trust and information that you should take with a healthy share of skepticism.
For example, let’s look at television. Do you trust those late night infomercials trying to sell you a course on how to make money in real estate with no money down? If you do, you are one of the very few that those commercials target. Do you see a commercial for McDonalds and trust that your burger will look the same? If you’ve been to McDonalds, you know that’s not true. Clearly television is not to be trusted, right? Wrong.
When you see something on the History Channel or the Discover Channel, do you respond with “television is not to be trusted”? When you read a sports ticker at the bottom of the screen, do you think that it lies to you? Of course not.
Doing Research on the Internet is Natural
Let’s pretend that you a looking to buy a television. Naturally, you want to get good value for your money. So you decide to do some research. You could get a magazine like Consumer Reports and that gives you some information. Alternatively, you could look up the reviews on Amazon.com to see what people are saying about a particular television. You could go to blogs like Gizmodo or Engadget that are trusted by millions of people each day. These would be smart moves in finding the right television for you.
Why MonaVie Distributors Steer you Away from the Internet
MonaVie distributors view you as a potential customer. Since they are already talking to you, they want to close the sale. If you leave the store to research the product, they know they may lose that sale. If they were confident in the product and the company, they would encourage you to go out there and do the research.
We’ve seen time and again that MonaVie tries to suppress the truth you get about the product and the company.
In the comment that I mentioned at the beginning of the article, the person doing the research simply had some questions that he wanted answered. The broad sweeping response of, “You cannot trust the Internet”, is not only ignorant, but rude. The proper etiquette is to answer the specific questions the customer has.
