Comp plans; every company has them. Some are designed for the top guys to make the money. Some are designed to let the middleman make enough money so you think you can make it to the top. But the closer you get to the top the more you have to do to stay there. Nobody will ever tell you these things until you get there. It is a secret they keep from you, and for a good reason. They know the average person can’t survive on just what you are making from your down line. They also know that if you do very well you will as they say, “Pass them up”. When that happens they lose all the income that you have been producing for them.
So why do they want to tell you how to sponsor more people? In reality they want you to sponsor enough people to get to a certain point where it gets too hard for you to qualify for YOUR commission check. If you can’t qualify it rolls up to them. I call that theft! Isn’t that a nice way to help your down line. Normally when that happens you get angry and just quit. Well guess what you just gave your up line a few new people to work. Yes your down line just passed to your up line. Then the process starts all over again.
Well I am not sure about the rest of you but in the last company I worked with my executive director had 3500 people in his down line and was only making $80,000 a year. At the time I left that company his strongest leg was about to pass him. When that takes place his 3500 people down line becomes a 1500 people down line. What do you think happens to his check? Your right, it goes from $80,000 a year to $20,000 a year. He has put 5 years into building this down line and now he has to start all over because the company he works with can’t spell MLM.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I would rather work for a company that where you had a down line of 500 or less and I could retire with that. I want to build my team, build it once, and never have to worry about being passed up and having to start from scratch. Isn’t it better to build it right the first time than having to rebuild your business to get to retirement? Does your company measure up?
