The first time I went to an IMG (International Marketing Group) Seminar in the Philippines was around 2012. The speaker at that time was Benj Santiago. Unlike the other attendees and members who were very enthusiastic and receptive, I was rather- indifferent. After the orientation was the Financial Check-up with one of the IMG associates. Again, I was not really interested and gave the usual canned reply- “I’ll think about it and get back to you.” I left the IMG office thinking that I just went to “another MLM group” that doest not serve my needs. Fast forward to the last quarter of 2017, and I realized how wrong I was and somehow regretted not signing up sooner.
So who or what exactly is IMG? International Marketing Group is a pioneering global company that serves as an avenue towards the ease of financial security. It also caters the financial needs of every individual and families who wish to access financial independence. Simply put, IMG is a broker for various companies that provides everyday Filipinos with the knowledge and ways to invest their hard-earned money, and help them achieve their financial goals. IMG also helps to address the problem of financial illiteracy among Filipinos, and help them become financially prepared. A lot of Filipinos are not financially literate and have no proper financial plan. Here are the top 5 Reasons that I can think of.
1. Lack of information and awareness.
2. Not a lot of credible and unbiased financial advisors available (only focused on selling, not on addressing the actual financial need/problems of the client).
3. They don’t know how to Plan Financially.
4. They don’t know what to do.
5. They don’t know who to ask or where to go.
How does IMG address all these issues?
1. IMG provides information and financial education.
2. IMG Field Associates and Educators practice what they preach.
3. IMG teaches people how to visualize and plan their financial future.
4. IMG guides members on how to execute their financial plan to achieve their goals.
5. IMG is a one-stop shop for various financial solutions that can help people achieve their financial goals.
