History of 6-4-2 System
The Founder of 6-4-2 System is Mr. Bill Britt. The most admire Crown Ambassador in Amway Global for the past 30 years; Bill Britt was a President in Amway IBOA board until he retires from the business in year 2004.
Mr. Bill Britt joined Amway in 1970 when he was 38, his sponsor is Dexter Yeager. Bill Britt qualified as Diamond in year 1972, - He is the first multi-millionaires in Amway business, in year 1985 he already own 40 luxuries Car, 6 Jet plane & helicopter. Today Bill Britt & his wife are control a personal joined fund of US100 millions.
In year 1976, after 4 years as Diamond, Bill Britt found that is not easy to maintain his Diamond status & none of his down lines can qualified for Diamond. He spends some time to think about the solution, and thus 642 systems were established. With the support of 642 systems, from year 1977 till 1982, within 6 years Bill Britt organization produce 46 new qualifies Diamond & make Bill Britt organization the largest in Amway Global till today.
Today 642 system is the largest & proven the most successful supporting system in the worldwide Network Marketing Industries. Record shown that the Top 10 network marketing in the world today all are built up by leaders who origin from 642 system
The point of any business is system is to increase efficiency and improve results, as is also witnessed in the field of franchising. The 6-4-2 system's key points include:System: There are two components to any business - the product and the system. If you consider large international hamburger chains, they do not offer the best hamburgers, but they still sell more than other burger stores. The point is, they have a "system" which is how the product gets out there - and this is the role that 642 system plays.
Duplication: It doesn't make a difference what works, but what duplicates. (In other words, just because you can use it to grow your network, if you can't easily teach it to others so that they can build a network, and if they in turn can't teach others to teach others - then it's not duplicate able - and thus not ideal.)
Vital Signs: What gets measured improves? Pin-levels say where you are, but there are other criteria for judging where your business is going. By focusing on areas such as width, depth and applications, and not just pin-level, your business is more likely to grow rapidly and profitably - and to be sustainable.
Edification: You can promote others, but you cannot promote yourself. It does not help to tell others that you are a business expert, and that they should follow your advice - it sounds hollow. But support of others within your business team gives greater credibility.
Teamwork: Network marketing is about building teams, and several aspects are taught in the system. Mentoring is an important component of this, where a person gets guidance from someone who has done what they are doing, and their mentor represents someone to whom they are answerable.
The training provided by 642 system is done in several ways:
CDs: These serve two purposes.
(1) They can be used for personal training, and
(2) they can be lent to others so they too can learn. This ensures:The group all learns about network building from the same source, People will not be limited by their personal ability to teach - they can always just lend a CD
The focus can be on building networks and not just teaching.
Books: Another form of training - people are encouraged to read 15 minutes a day from relevant business books, which cover sales skills, inter-personal skills, business, market trends, etc.
Websites: An informational tool used to help people:
Ensure they have access to current information which is more recent than that contained on CDs , Conform their business proposition methods , Economize their network building time.
Meetings: Again, these present a standard forum for teaching, and for sharing the business idea with others. This, as described above, means people are not reliant on their own skills, but can take advantage of more senior members of the team. There are different types of meetings, from public forums where the business plan is presented, half-day and one-day training, and weekend seminars.
