If you are thinking about joining a network marketing company, also referred to as multi-level marketing, or MLM, one important item you will want to understand is its compensation plan. Otherwise, “How will I get paid?”

There are four basic kinds of MLM compensation plans that will be described in this article.. Each of these may have several variations. Some plans are better suited forrepparttar people who really enjoy sales and may desire to retail a lot of products. Some plans are designed to attract especiallyrepparttar 143913 “heavy hitter.” Some plans pay well forrepparttar 143914 beginner and may or may not be attractive torepparttar 143915 big recruiter. Some plans make a serious effort to reward evenrepparttar 143916 little guy or gal who can only sponsor or recruit a few people, but also pay very well torepparttar 143917 top distributors.

These plans are called Unilevel, Stairstep Breakaway, Binary, and Matrix.

1.UNILEVEL. This is a simple, straightforward compensation plan. It allows for a distributor to have a first level of unlimited width. The levelsrepparttar 143918 company pays commission on generally range from 3 to 9 levels deep. The more volume generated by you and your organization,repparttar 143919 more you can earn. A disadvantage to this plan is that building wide meansrepparttar 143920 distributor may give less help to his personal enrollees.

2.STAIRSTEP BREAKAWAY. This isrepparttar 143921 most common of allrepparttar 143922 compensation plans. It is where most ofrepparttar 143923 really big money is made in MLM. This big money, however, is made by a very small percentage of people. Breakaway plans are geared for full-time effort. Attrition isrepparttar 143924 highest with breakaway plans and it generally will cost more to build your business. This is a work program. It takes persistence, salesmanship, and requiresrepparttar 143925 ability for you to train your recruits. Companies which use breakaway plans tend to pay higher commissions. However,repparttar 143926 plan may be extremely difficult for most people to duplicate. 3.BINARY. This is a very complicated and hard-to-understand plan. It does, however, offer a simple system that is easy to duplicate. Otherwise, you recruit just two and help them dorepparttar 143927 same.

Saving Money On Your E-commerce Site

Written by Gary McHugh

After building and transferring many e-commerce sites it still amazes me that owners of e-commerce businesses are still wasting money in three basic ways. For fear of statingrepparttar obvious, saving money isrepparttar 143881 same as making money $100 saved is $100 added to your profit margin. Here are three basic ways to save money on your e-commerce site and increase your profits. While they may be simple we know they are overlooked time and time again resulting in thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

ABORTED SALES While most modern shopping carts come with many features, they all involverepparttar 143882 collecting of information from clients. Name, address, telephone number, user name, password, email address and so on. Yes we understand that these details are only required forrepparttar 143883 first order but let's take a look atrepparttar 143884 new buyers experience.

They have browsed your site and found a product they wish to buy, they beginrepparttar 143885 checkout process and input allrepparttar 143886 details above. Your cart then buildsrepparttar 143887 order and transfers them to paypal 2 checkout or what ever payment gateway you use. What happens next? "Please input your name, address, email, telephone number......" The result? Lost and aborted sales, surfers are lazy creatures we know that. In an ideal world your cart would have passed all those variables torepparttar 143888 gateway andrepparttar 143889 user would not have to input them again, however because there are so many gateways and they all require different variables this is difficult.

So now you log in torepparttar 143890 admin section of your cart and see an order only to find there is no matching payment. Thje solution is simple, fire up your email program and send them an email. "We noticed that you placed an order for our xxxxxxx however unfortunately we did not receive payment for that item so were unable to despatch it. Did you have difficulty with our ordering system? Is there anything we can do to help you? If so please contact us in one ofrepparttar 143891 following ways....."

Taking a few moments to send them an email can recoverrepparttar 143892 sale, or at worst you can find out which part of your ordering system isn't working for them and have it worked on. If you have your own merchant account you could have them call you and take their order by phone. Customers like to feel like customers not numbers,repparttar 143893 fact that you tookrepparttar 143894 time to contact them to find out what was wrong will give them confidence in your store and may recoverrepparttar 143895 sale.

CHARGEBACKS The curse of any e-commerce storerepparttar 143896 dreaded chargeback. We are sure you have all experienced it. You take an order, despatch it and a few weeks later get a chargeback. The result you have sent goods and have to refundrepparttar 143897 price ofrepparttar 143898 product and pay a chargeback fee normally around $15.

Firstly make sure your payment gateway offers some sort of seller protection. aypal for example have a full seller protection policy. This is useful to prevent fraud. It is totally unfair that some dishonest people initiate chargebacks after receiving goods, however as long as your gateway has seller protection and you have saved order details and proof of despatch you can go someway to protecting yourself against that.

Surprisingly most chargebacks are not fraudulent, they are caused byrepparttar 143899 seller forgetting who they bought from, especially if your registered company name with your gateway is different from that of your site. An example your company is called freds enterprizes but your website is widgetsgalore.com,repparttar 143900 client buys a widget and atrepparttar 143901 end ofrepparttar 143902 month sees a charge to their card from freds enterprizes. They don't recognize it they contact their card issuer and chargeback.
