About Us

The Free Gold Franchise Association was loosely formed by Stephen Knott of Southern California in 1999. There he had  several years of studying gold sales, trends, mining and minting together with various gold companies. The association was formed utilizing his 10 years experience of personal usage of gold bullion. The decision to go with karatbars came only after many years of comparing various bullion commission and marketing programs. Being involved in several of the most successful direct marketing and multi level companies helped Stephen form his ideas for joining karatbars. His skills with online marketing and direct marketing worked hand-in-hand with the formulating of this association of karatbars downlines. We work together to assist anyone anywhere in getting started for free, and without cost, to begin successfully selling their product. Some strategies include simply linking your affiliate URL, utilizing utilizing free classified ads. This assists those who don't want to be involved in any form of direct sales but still want to help people make money and perhaps save the value of their wealth. Over the last 5-10 years his experience in several types of gold, whether in electronic savings programs or in physical form also led to the final settlement over to karatbars. He has spent all the time with commission schemes of other companies, dealing both in smaller and larger denominations. However both in commission payout, and usability for the regular people, karatbars surpasses them all. The culmination this research birthed the Free Gold Franchise Association in January of 2010 under KB Sponsor ID: STEPHENMK 75648954.

The goal of this venture is to begin providing the general public with access to lowest priced gold at the highest commission level direct from the gold minting and mining operations of Karatbars (formerly known as KB Vision).
