The numbers have been proven over the decades. Part-time network marketers, without a system, will sponsor 2.7 people into any business. That’s why it’s so incredible that there are dozens of MLMs where you give away your first 2 sponsored people.
It’s called an Australian 2-up. You give up your first 2 sponsored people to your upline. You don’t get any commission from them, ever. It all goes to your upline.
An Aussie 2-up is always, always, always associated with a one-time sale. So there are no residuals. The income usually flows entirely from selling the one product to new people. There may be other products, but one single product accounts for 99% of the business volume. The Aussie 2-up compensation plan is usually associated with a $1,000, $2,000, $5,000, $10,000, $25,000 package.
An Aussie 2-up Product Package Is Always Information
It’s never the type of product you’d expect in a traditional MLM.
Some network marketing companies sell a benefits package, a discount dental program, discount legal program, etc. The big problem with such products is that traditionally, a high percentage of customers never uses the product, and they drop out quickly. So they never see the value. If your customers don’t experience the product, you won’t have a very high retention rate.
It’s the same with an Aussie 2-up. That comp plan is always associated with a one-time sale. And if average people only ever sponsor 2.7 people … and if the first 2 of those sales (and new reps) go to your sponsor … then you understand why this compensation plan never works for the average part-time network marketer.
Who Does It Work For?
The Aussie 2-up works fine for that “A” type personality, that hard-driving, closing, selling, “bodies laying in the street” sponsor monster … THAT person is fantastic in an Australian 2-up, because they can build it.
But it’s not for YOU. You will never be successful with it. The numbers don’t lie.
So why do people get so excited about the Aussie 2-up?
They get sold on the idea that they’ll get rich somehow off all the people who will will get passed up to them, AFTER they pass their 2 to their sponsor. They get sold on the hype. The reality is, they never get the first 2 to give them their 2.
Here’s The Magic
Every compensation plan drives a certain behavior in the field. An Aussie 2-up is always about the front-end big ticket item. It is never a plan that creates residual income.
There’s never a monthly autoship, no back-end product consumption. We talk about companies looking for the “purple cow,” the remarkable product. You never find a product like that with an Aussie 2-up compensation plan.
This plan is strictly for the “A” type personality. And they do their darnedest to convince YOU that you can change, that you can become this hard-driving salesperson … but I have 2 questions for you:
1. Do you really believe that your current personality isn’t good enough?
2. Can you really picture yourself spending every day, the rest of your life, as that pushy, aggressive, churn & burn salesperson, willing to say anything, do anything, all to get a sale?
The only way that’ll work for you is to first get a lobotomy. Otherwise, you are absolutely not going to do it. You may think you can, but you can’t, because it goes 100% against your nature. And after it doesn’t work, you’ll feel like a loser, because you can’t do “whatever it takes” to be successful.
To be successful, don’t put yourself in a situation where you are 100% certain to fail … and that’s where you are with an Aussie 2-up compensation plan.
Keep looking. There are good network marketing companies with comp plans that you can work successfully. The Aussie 2-up is not one of them.
