The MLM Spillover Myth

Someone recently told me he’s joining an MLM company because of the promised spillover. I said, "They are lying to you!"

As a result the guy point-blank asked them if he’d get people put underneath him, and of course he was told that there was no guarantee for it!

Spillover is creating a welfare mentality.

Good people want to build it themselves. They want to learn the skills they need to build this business and create residual income, money that’s coming in week after week, year after year, that will pay even their children’s children.

MLM websites containing that word "spillover" as a rule say one way or other "get in now, today, and you’ll get all this spillover".

If you look closely at the compensation plans of the companies that promote spillover, you’ll find out that you don’t get paid on spillover as a rule. You need to qualify to get paid on that spillover, and  people who opt for spillover rarely ever qualify.

What a surprise – also here it is the people who do the work who get paid!

When You Say "Spillover", You Are Targeting Quitters! People who think they get something for nothing.

A network marketing company that promotes spillover is attracted welfare-minded people. You can’t build with these people, unless YOU do all the work! And when you don’t build their business, they’ll be off somewhere else, looking for a better welfare plan. As a result the failure rate will be 100%.

There is the next connected scam:

The quickest way to build a huge list is to offer something for nothing (no money, no work, no purchase) in return. You will see again and again  things like: “we’ve signed up more people faster than anybody else in the history of network marketing." But nobody ordering any product. It’s just names on a list – but they can call these people "network marketers."

Next they sell this huge database of worthless names (an "MLM genealogy list") for $10,000 each to 10 different list brokers. That’s $100,000 profit! And then the list brokers sell these "leads" to all the people in network marketing who want to build their business – including YOU!

You pay $2-$3 per lead for these people. When you call them they tell you they’ve never been in network marketing! They don’t even know what it is. They just opted in to some “something for nothing” list, hoping for the miracle of getting rich over night.

Conclusion? Run fast from any company focused on "spillover".  ALWAYS generate your own leads. How?

Get yourself seriously educated and you will do awesome!
