GREENSBORO, N.C., Sep 24, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Market America, Inc., a product brokerage and Internet marketing company specializing in One-to-One Marketing, officially began operations in Hong Kong on September 19, 2007. With over 30 corporate members already in place, Market Hong Kong will service the company's growing international customer base after Market America successfully expanded operations to three other countries.
"Our expansion into Hong Kong is a result of our tremendous success in Canada, Australia, and Taiwan," said Joe Bolyard, Market America's executive vice president of international expansion and operations. "Our most recent expansion into Taiwan exceeded even our own lofty expectations based on the thousands of people who successfully implemented the UnFranchise(R) Business Development System. By building on the successes in North America, Australia, and Taiwan; Hong Kong, as one of the world's largest financial centers is an ideal market for us to expand as we continue to grow in the Pacific Rim."
Market America opened Market Taiwan in August of 2005. Sales in Taiwan are currently annualizing at $1,242,041.30 (USD) per week, and $64,586,147.60 (USD) in 2007. The company has used that success, as well as Market Australia's achievements for further expansion into the Pacific Rim.
"The people of Hong Kong have long been known for their entrepreneurial spirit," said Clovis Lau, senior sales manager in Hong Kong. The UnFranchise(R) Business Development System has already been successfully implemented in four other countries, and that entrepreneurial spirit will no doubt make Market Hong Kong the next international success story. The opening of this operation by Market America provides the average person in Hong Kong a chance to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves due to the first rate support they will receive from Market Hong Kong."
In addition to exclusive Market America product offerings ranging from health and nutrition products to cosmetics, Market America has also partnered with Hong Kong's leading businesses to sell their products and services through the www.marketamerica.com web portal. These businesses include Ebay Hong Kong, HMV, YesAsia, YesStyle, and Octopus Travel.
For those interested in learning more about the business opportunities available to them through Market Hong Kong, Lau suggests visiting www.markethongkong.com.hk and/or coming to their headquarters. "We invite anyone who wants to learn about the UnFranchise(R) Business Development System and our exclusive brands of products to come to our headquarters. We will do everything we can to help those that want to learn how they can become successful independent business owners."
