History

A Rich and Prosperous History

TAG TEAM Marketing began as a distributor team in a network marketing company in 1994 and broke records in the marketing industry, before becoming its own independent company in 2004. TAG TEAM Marketing launched its amazing Black Business Network in 2007 and united Black businesses, followed by the powerful Buy Black Movement in 2015 which united Black consumers. Then, TAG TEAM Marketing launched Garvey Nation in 2024, which is currently changing the lives of Black people all over the world. Below is a year by year breakdown of the exciting history of TAG TEAM Marketing:

1993

In August 1993, Delxino and Deborah Wilson de Briano were a young Black couple struggling financially in Atlanta, Georgia. A friend introduced them to a very successful man who invited them to join his network marketing business opportunity. They joined his local "Atlanta Group" and started attending his training meetings and presentations several nights per week. They became committed students and learned all they could from him. Delxino and Deborah were two of only a few Blacks participating in the predominantly white business opportunity.

The early members of the Atlanta Group had a hard time selling the products and getting other people involved in the business opportunity. They brought many of their Black friends to watch the white man deliver presentations about the business opportunity. Though it sounded great, most of their friends could not relate to him and therefore didn't join. As time passed, most of the early team members quit the business opportunity. A few of them, however, were committed and kept on working...

1994

Delxino writing at desk Delxino, Deborah and their team continued to work hard through the year. In August, after a year of hard work and some small success, Delxino and Deborah realized that they would have to create an environment which catered to Black people, if Blacks were going to truly succeed in the business opportunity. They realized that Black people have a different culture, background and way of communicating than the way they were trained.

They realized that they needed their own identity and a new marketing strategy. Since Black people worked better together as a team, they needed a TEAM marketing strategy. In August of 1994, the couple founded TAG TEAM Marketing. TAG TEAM stood for "The Atlanta Group - Together  Everyone  Achieves  More."

TAG TEAM Marketing LogoDelxino and Deborah had a big vision for their organization. They loved their people and intended to make the team successful at all costs. With a hard-core work-ethic, a fun, Black family atmosphere and a high-energy training system, the team of Brothers and Sisters went to work. TAG TEAM Marketing added their ethnic flavor to all aspects of the business opportunity and soon were on their way to building a large, success team. They began a mission to create prosperity, love, unity and 1,000 Black millionaires. The word spread all over the Southern U.S. that "Brothers and Sisters are working together in Atlanta, making lots of money and making history!"

By the end of 1994, TAG TEAM Marketing had grown from less than 40 people to well over 5,000 members. Delxino became the #1 producer in the network marketing company at age 25, and received the distinguished Person of the Year award for the year of 1994. TAG TEAM Marketing was the #1 producing team in the world for the entire year.

1995

By 1995, the word about TAG TEAM Marketing was spreading from the Southern U.S. to other parts of the country. New TAG TEAM leaders began developing and undertaking the mission, and spreading the vision of TAG TEAM Marketing. TAG TEAM Marketing spread to the East Coast of the U.S., where major expansions took place. Many TAG TEAM members became wealthy in both the Southern and the Eastern U.S.

By the end of 1995, TAG TEAM Marketing had firmly established itself as a formidable entity in the network marketing industry, and grew to over 40,000 members. TAG TEAM members received the majority of the top production awards for the year. Delxino Wilson de Briano received the #1 Overall Producer award for the year. TAG TEAM Marketing was again the #1 producing team in the entire company for the year.

1996

In 1996, the growth and development continued as Brothers and Sisters in different U.S. states joined TAG TEAM Marketing. Major expansions began in cities all over the U.S. New leaders spread the vision of TAG TEAM Marketing from the East Coast to the West Coast.

Delxino and Deborah personally led an expansion in the state of California and refined and developed their TAG TEAM Training System considerably during this period, in order to handle the growing demand for solid TAG TEAM leadership, training and support.

By the end of 1996, TAG TEAM Marketing was generating $9.5 million dollars per month in billing and had grown to almost 90,000 members. At the end of the year, almost every national award went to TAG TEAM Marketing members, including 9 out of 10 of the Top Money Earners for the Year. Delxino was awarded the #1 Producer award for the third straight year and given the top profit-sharing check in the company.

They sponsored three TAG TEAM Marketing National Conventions for TAG TEAM members during this year. The first was held in February, 1997 in Atlanta, Georgia. The second was held in July, 1997 in Secaucus, New Jersey. The admission requirements for the New Jersey convention were simple: you had to sign up at least 25 recurring customers to get in, or 50 to get preferred seating. Thousands of TAG TEAM members got qualified to attend this event, creating one of the biggest sales surges in the history of TAG TEAM Marketing.

TAG TEAM Marketing produced several videos this year, including the classic "Atlanta Promo Video" and the all-time classic "Follow Me."

Then, in October of 1997, TAG TEAM held its third convention for the year. It was a historical national convention in Atlanta, Georgia that brought thousands to experience TAG TEAM Marketing.

A documentary video of the weekend was produced and released as TAG TEAM Marketing's classic "Video Newsletter Volume 1."

Production continued to soar. TAG TEAM Marketing ended the year as the #1 producing team for the fourth year in a row. Delxino was awarded the top production awards for the year, as well as the top profit sharing check in the company... over $102,000.00.

2008

TAG TEAM MovementAfter years of preparation, it was finally time to begin what Delxino and Deborah Wilson de Briano had been planning for years. At the beginning of 2008, TAG TEAM Marketing launched a revolutionary project that put the Black community to work promoting, selling and buying the products offered by Black-owned businesses. This was accomplished with three powerful programs:

TAG TEAM Movement(1) Black business owners joined the Black Business Network and offered their products for sale in TAG TEAM's new "Buy Black Today" online and retail stores.

(2) Black people joined the new "TAG TEAM Business Opportunity," where they went to work getting Black people to purchase products from the Buy Black Today store.

(3) Black consumers purchased the products from the online store.

Together, these programs began creating great Black wealth.

For the first time, TAG TEAM Marketing distributors were able to sell the products and services of Black-owned businesses. Now, Black-owned businesses could have their own network marketing sales-force promote and sell their products and services for them, without having to build a sales-force on their own.

2009

Several major Black-owned businesses joined the Black Business Network and began utilizing TAG TEAM Marketing to promote their businesses.

The Black Business Network program was enhanced. It became both a state-of-the-art online community and business-building tool. The new program and website officially launched on August 29th of that year and immediately attracted new members in the thousands.

By the end of the year, over 29,000 new members had joined the organization, from 90 countries around the world. Thousands of products from Black-owned businesses were sold by Black TAG TEAM distributors to Black consumers during 2009.

2011

ChartIn 2011, TAG TEAM Marketing released version 5.0 of the Black Business Network website, which combined all of TAG TEAM's products, services and programs into one website. The new website featured a new, simpler design and made buying, selling and promoting the products and services of Black-owned businesses easier for all.

The membership of the Black Business Network expanded greatly, reaching over 39,000 members in 113 countries around the world. In 2011, Black Business Network members participated in hundreds of events, discussions, live presentations, online broadcasts and conference calls. Marketers in the Black Star Opportunity held presentations, meetings and events in many parts of the United States.

TAG TEAM Black Business Network Logo2011 also saw the introduction of the amazing nutritional product Motherland's Gold Moringa, which quickly broke sales records and became the fastest-selling product in TAG TEAM Marketing history. The product delivered outstanding health and wellness improvements to Black Business Network members who used it, which led to the amazing sales of the product.

Thousands purchased products and services from Black-owned businesses in the Black Business Network in 2011, which led to TAG TEAM Marketing achieving a ground-breaking milestone: 39,000 products and services sold, matching the 39,000 members of the network. That meant that on average, every single member of the Black Business Network who signed up (for free) purchased at least one product or service from a Black-owned business in the program. This 1-to-1 member-to-sales ratio has rarely (if ever) been achieved by an organization when offering free membership to the public, with membership in the tens of thousands. This achievement clearly showed that the TAG TEAM Marketing was reaching its goals, making buying Black a reality for tens of thousands of Black people, bringing much needed revenue to Black-owned businesses, and making a major impact in the Black community.

The Supplier, Marketer and Consumer programs received huge boosts and enhancements.

The Black Business Network continued to grow and expand in all directions. Most importantly, the entire Marketer team prepared for what they knew would be a history-making year in 2015.

2015

Buy Black Movement Begins Video ReplayIn January of 2015, TAG TEAM Marketing took a huge step towards its goals. It launched the historic "Buy Black Movement" as its main program, replacing the Black Business Network. The Black Business Network continued, but specifically as a program for Black business owners to supply products and services to the Buy Black Movement. The Buy Black Movement is an initiative to get Black people buying from Black-owned businesses in the Black Business Network, consistently.

The movement garnered immediate support from all over the world, getting Black people committing to becoming monthly purchasers of Black-made products.

Delxino and Deborah Wilson de Briano delivered live presentations related to the Buy Black Movement every weekend during the year and broadcast each event live for viewers all over the world to see. These included historic presentations like "The Trillion Dollar Game" and "Successful Movements in Black History". They delivered most of the presentations in Atlanta, Georgia, but they also traveled to other cities including Los Angeles, California; San Diego, California; New York City; Salisbury, Maryland; Tuskegee, Alabama; and more.

TAG TEAM Marketers heavily promoted the new program and sold many thousands of Black-made products. By the end of the year, the Buy Black Movement was firmly established as a powerful program addressing the current economic needs of the Black community.

2016

2016 was a year of incredible production and growth. Practically every single statistic in TAG TEAM Marketing started going up at rates faster than ever before. Most significantly, more Black people joined and started purchasing products and services than ever before, leading to all-time high revenues for Black-owned businesses and Marketers involved in the movement.

One particular TAG TEAM Marketer, Dorothy Cooper of Los Angeles, California, broke all previous records for personal production by achieving Platinum status (1,000 points in sales or more) five months out of the year. Furthermore, she achieved Double Platinum twice in the year, becoming the first person in the history of TAG TEAM Marketing to do so.

TAG TEAM Marketing released its greatly improved Supporter Program (2.0) that year, which added status titles and rewards dollars for purchases, as well as rewards for the purchases of others one referred to the program. These enhancements were raved about by members everywhere.

TAG TEAM Marketing also officially transitioned away from the term "Black Business Network" referring to the entire movement and instead applied the term to refer to the Supplier program. The overall movement started being called the "Buy Black Movement." The new Buy Black Movement consisted of three main programs:

(1) The Black Business Network - for business owners to supply products.

(2) TAG TEAM Marketing Opportunity - for Marketers to sell the products.

(3) Supporter Program - for committed Black consumers to buy the products.

With this change, the purpose of the movement became much more self-explanatory. As a result, the Buy Black Movement expanded at an even higher rate.

In November, TAG TEAM Marketing launched BuyBlackMovement.com and officially retired BlackBusinessNetwork.com. The new website was visually stunning and full of enhancements and instantly became a hit as the proud online home for the Buy Black Movement and its programs.

2020

COVID-192020 was a year of unexpected change. The COVID-19 virus took the world by storm and resulted in a complete lock-down of the United States and most of the world, for most of the year. Millions of Black people couldn't leave home or travel. This resulted in the cancellation of most of our live events, including our 2020 annual convention and a move to doing everything virtually. It also was a year of terrible injustice against Black people that led to massive demonstrations all over the United States.

Despite the obvious challenges that TAG TEAM Marketing and our members faced, there was a silver lining. More and more Black people moved to shopping online since they couldn't travel to stores. Also, the demand for natural health products increased greatly due to health concerns.

Furthermore, in 2020, there were frequent incidents of police brutality against Black people. The whole world watched a white policeman murder a Black man named George Floyd. It caused us great pain as a race. TAG TEAM Marketing Co-Founders Delxino & Deborah Wilson de Briano delivered a historic conference call about the George Floyd incident that touched, inspired and united thousands. As more Black people demanded social justice, the Buy Black Movement became an alternative to buying from white businesses. 

Increase Sales GraphTAG TEAM Marketers took advantage of the changes in society and promoted more than ever during 2020. As a result, the Buy Black Movement BOOMED and sales of Black-made products nearly DOUBLED in 2020!

Also, as massive layoffs took place across the United States due to the lock-down, more and more Black people looked for alternative ways to earn, which led to many joining the TAG TEAM Marketing Opportunity. New leaders emerged and TAG TEAM Marketing grew at an amazing rate in 2020.
