5 Ways AIM Supports a Community Where You Matter
AIM believes in one simple truth: You Matter.
AIM Smarter LLC believes in one simple truth: at the end of the day, You Matter. We know this because we are you. AIM Smarter LLC was born from a group of 100 distributors banding together to get what they need without giving up what they’ve earned. A belief that we could be the group we’ve waited for – with the benefits, services, and freedom that just weren’t present in the market.
$2 billion and 2,200 members later, we were onto something. Led by some of those same believers (along with bright, new stars) and with a growing community that is still member-driven at its core, we’ve broken industry routines and
- Deliver tech innovations
- Established VIP connections with our industry’s top suppliers
- Most importantly: made the promise not to forget our roots.
Help us keep at it.
We’re connecting the ambitious, the experienced, the upstarts, the mavericks and the all-stars all in one place. Are you one of those? We want you. And we take that connection seriously: every single day, we talk to distributors about what they need to grow their business, from marketing services to vendor relations, technology tools to full financing.
We understand every distributor is different. We know your pain points because they’re ours too. We’re confident in our offerings because actually listening has made us a responsive community that is different, too.
Take back your time, experience connections that value you, keep your independence, and choose the SPACE you need to thrive with the AIM membership that is right for you.
