Blog   MLMers Get Paid On Volume, Not Sponsoring



So I’m just sitting there and this thought comes over me.  A thought about network marketing and making a lot of money.


Can this be right?  Can it be this simple?

Instantly I figure, “naw, it can’t be that profound, I can’t be the only one to see this…”

You know, the self-doubt that is the mate to inexperience.  I mean we’re talking 1994 and while I was making around 3000 a month or so, I had failed 5 times in the 1980s… who was I to question what the leaders were saying?


The truth is the truth.

We get paid on volume, not distributors.

How come all the trainings, all the events, all the calls are about sponsoring?

Think about it for 5 seconds … it’s a truth you simply cannot deny.

Earning on other people losing is bad business

Unfortunately, this simple truth has become more and more lost and with the burying of that simple truth, the earnings per distributor and the volume in our great industry per distributor have both fallen.  That’s a fact.

Maybe it is the incredible irresponsibility of so many companies… who have by and large abandon training distributors properly…

Maybe it is the fertile ground internet is for the glut of moron gurus preaching “sponsor more, sponsor 20 a month…20 a day… ”

Maybe it’s just well meaning leaders who gear conference calls to sponsoring… thoughtlessly repeating what they heard from other “leaders”

Who knows?   Does it matter how we got to this point?

Not really.

There is a dirty little secret in our industry that I discovered that week back in 1994 and it is simply this; If the company is paying back to your group less money than your group paid to the company, THEN some people in your group must lose money for others to make money.

The “idiot argument”?

“Well, they can build their own group and make money.”

While that is true, it does not alter the math.   It just means more people are losing money in your group and attrition increases AND, good grief, we’re back to “sponsor more” as a solution.   Bad businesses don’t address problems, good ones do.   The really interesting thing is that inside this “dirty little secret” is a real solution… one that we used beginning in late 1994 that made us and more importantly others a fortune… It’s called “fusion” and it will increase your volume, on the same number of reps 9x.   Not a typo, 9x.

Best part of this simple skill that rectifies a good business model poorly executed into a good business model elegantly executed?   It’s a one sentence skill.


I’ve put this skill into cool software to share with your team.   It graphically explains this dirty little secret and teaches the skill step by step.   Again, it’s called fusion and you can grab it here and share it with your team.  Watching and implementing this will increase your volume, the volume of your teammates and, most importantly, the checks.   People will no longer have to lose money for people to make money on your teams.

No one doing the minimum should be expecting to make the maximum.

Wonder what it would be like to have 100 reps with 24 customers they’ve acquired over the course of 12 months?   Do the math and you tell me if having 2400 customers, each purchasing monthly, would make a difference.

I’d love to know what you think, let me know below.
