When researching network marketing companies, many people get too hung up on MLM pay plans. There are many variations on pay plans, and while it is an important part of how you will be profiting in your MLM, keep in mind that you can do well with any plan, as long as you have a good product or service to sell, a lot of support from your company and team, and a structured system or program to follow.
With that in mind, here is some advice when looking at MLM pay plans. Most experts will say that if the plan is too complicated for you to understand, then it is not worth getting involved. The reasons for this are that (1) you will have a hard time setting goals for yourself if you cannot understand exactly how much you will be earning and (2) even more importantly, if you find it difficult to explain a plan to someone that you are recruiting, there’s not a good chance that he or she will be willing to join you. However, if you’ve found a company that has a product you can genuinely vouch for, good standing in the industry, solid team support and structure, you can overlook the fact that the compensation plan is a little (or a lot) complicated.
Others will say that the best plans are those that offer you a high commission on your sales of the products/services offered by the company. This also means that when you bring people into your business on your team, as part of your downline, you will make high commissions off of their sales as well. Network marketing is all about leverage — getting paid even when you aren’t the one who is actually making the sale. Others prefer getting paid less on products and more, in commissions or bonuses, on actually recruiting people.
As mentioned earlier, as aspect of network marketing that is more important than its compensation plan, is the fact that you can integrated it into the lifestyle of yourself, your family, and your friends. If you are a fitness nut, choose an MLM that sells products or services related to fitness. If you love cooking, find an MLM that deals with that. There is an MLM company for any type of field that you may be interested in. In fact, there are even MLM companies that offer MLM systems or products.
In summary, the fundamental aspects of good MLM pay plans are that, with a few exceptions, they are easy to understand, and explain, and that you make a good deal of commission, not only when you make a sale or recruit a person into the business, but also when your team does so. These are the types of MLMs that you and your family can benefit from when you get to the point of leveraging your income.
