More and more people have heard of MLM, or multilevel marketing, an ingenious internet marketing scheme that allows people to make a lot of money very quickly if exploited correctly. As the business plan becomes more and more popular, the concepts associated with it are becoming better and better known. One such concept is spillover, which applies to certain MLM structures. Spillover, basically, is a way for MLM companies to force yo uto place distributors in your downline as you recruit more and more of them. Let’s see how this works.
Money, Money, Money
But first, a little background. In multilevel marketing, most of your money comes from sales made by distributors you’ve recruited. These people constitute your downline. Each person in your downline can develop their own network of distributors, which is where the real fun starts: This is when you start to make a lot of money for yourself, and when you start to see that income grow regularly. The most important part of multilevel marketing is exploiting this downstream effect. MLM spillover allows you to build that downstream quickly and with a lot of advantages and disadvantages.
What exactly is MLM Spillover?
What is spillover? Just what it sounds like: The spilling over of distributors you recruit from one level of your downline (say, the first level) to the next (in this case, second level) as a result of size constraints on your levels. Say you can only have two distributors in your first level. If you fill this level with two distributors, you’ll have to place that new recruit underneath one of the two slots from your first level
Should you rely on MLM Spillover?
As you can see, you can benefit from teamwork. This isn’t exactly the best way to build an MLM business. Say if you are in a binary comp plan and your sponsor works on one side of the leg, while you work the other leg. It gives people of perception that if a sponsor or upline puts people under their downline, they will make instant money. It’s a great leverage point for sponsors to recruit more people but they are not recruiting leaders or business builders. I’ve never seen or heard of anyone who has made a killing from spillover.
Your downline will develop into a larger organization, which, of course, but not everyone benefits from the spillover. I’ve seen uplines put new people on their weaker leg, and it doesn’t create any leverage for those who are on the weaker leg. As you can see, this becomes lopsided.
This notion of teamwork is important in MLM since it’s crucial that everyone works towards a common goal with the ultimate objective being the benefit of the entire team. The problem with spillover, not everyone benefits from it. Instead of trying to rely on spillover, improve on your skillset so that you don’t have to rely on spillover. What you lack in skills, you make up in numbers. The primary objective of the MLM model is to recruit. If you don’t recruit, your business will die.
Spillover, ultimately, is not the best way to build a large MLM Network Marketing organization, but you may build an enormous downline in a short amount of time, provided that you have a strong upline. But it doesn’t mean that you’ll make money. On the back-end, it doesn’t last long-term. It doesn’t create leverage for everyone that is involved.
