MLM Forced Matrix Marketing Plans - Do They Work?
by Aziz Jangbar

Have you ever enrolled with an MLM or Network Marketing company with a Forced Matrix Compensation Plan hoping to get automatic spillover from your upline? You see ads everywhere that promise to make you rich if you sign up right away. I have to be honest; I have joined several companies with a Forced Matrix Pay Plan thinking that I was going to get rich just by getting spillover from my upline's efforts.

Guess what? I was disappointed every time I joined with such an intention. Not because I didn't get any spillover, many times I got plenty of spillover, but I didn't make any significant amounts of money. Why? Because there was only so much my upline could do for me, they could only put so many people under me, and they could not qualify me to earn at higher pay levels. In the end, it was up to me to continue the growth. I won't get into the details of how Forced Matrix Pay Plans and Spillover works, I will assume here that you are familiar with the concepts.

What I want to emphasize here is that no company in its right mind, MLM or not MLM, will pay you for doing nothing. The compensation plans are designed to reward those who generate business. Companies can only afford to pay those individuals who create growth for the company; otherwise, they will not last very long. So if I join a MLM company with the hopes of making money by not doing anything, I am not going to earn much. I may receive some small checks, but nothing to get excited about.

I am sure there are people who will argue that there are opportunities out there that have no sponsoring requirements, all you have to do is sign up and make money with them. Well, all I have to say to that is that they won't last. It simply doesn't make business sense. Why would someone want to pay you for doing nothing?

So when people don't make money in a Forced Matrix Plan by depending on spillover, it is not the Forced Matrix Pay Plan that's failing, it is the individual that's failing, because of the do-nothing-and-make-money attitude.

The Forced Matrix Pay Plan is an excellent concept if approached with reasonable expectations and promoted responsibly by Network Marketers. By permitting you to put only a certain number of people on each level, you are forced to help your downline grow. More teamwork is created and relationships are formed. Fixed number of people on each level also helps you build deep, and building deep means more long-term security for you, your upline and your downline.

Forced Matrix Pay Plans make it easy to teach duplication to your downline. If just 2 people are allowed on your first level, then you can teach everyone in your downline to get their 2 and then help the people under them to get their 2 and so on. Spillover from all the activity can help speed up the growth and create momentum for the whole team.

As long as you don't get into a MLM opportunity that uses a Forced Matrix Pay Plan with the expectation of making a fortune without doing any real work, you will find this type of a Pay Plan to be a great way to build a team that works together to produce long-term residual income.
