Multilevel Marketing (MLM) Vs Direct Sales Compensation Plans

There are different types of businesses that you can start up on a shoestring on the internet. Unlike brick and mortar businesses that cost tens of thousands of dollars to start, internet businesses cost very little. In addition to being less costly, they usually have some sort of support that will help you succeed in marketing your products.

While you can start your own internet business, such as selling products on eBay, you should realize that you will not have any support by way of marketing your products and probably will not make the money that those who have decided to go into tried and true marketing plans will make. The two different types of internet businesses that are making all of the money online are multilevel marketing plans and direct sales compensation plans. Both require you to sell products and also recruit others to sell them for you. Although they may seem similar, both plans are entirely different when it comes to compensation.

Multilevel Marketing Plans

Multilevel marketing plans take a while to build up. You have to create down line of people who recruit others who also recruit others. It may take a while to get to the top of the heap. But when you do, you will be able to make quite a bit of money with no effort at all. You will get a portion of the commissions of every single person on your down line.

If you are looking to make money in a long term business and are willing to work hard to get there, you may be interested in a multilevel marketing internet business such as that which is offered by Ameriplan or Xocai. With companies such as Ameriplan or Xocai, you sell products or services that people really want to buy and also get others to do the same. As your down line builds, so does your commission.

Direct Sales Compensation Plans

Direct sales compensation plans offer you sizable commissions right away. You sell a product and get a decent commission upon selling. While you still recruit others, there are usually only two or three levels with direct sale compensation plans. This means that when someone you recruit is actively recruiting others, they break off from your team. There are pros and cons of this in that it gives your team members an incentive to sell and build the product.

Many people who are interested in an internet marketing business like the idea of a direct sales compensation plan because they do not have to wait for commissions and can have instant cash flow right away. Many direct sales companies offer commissions of $300 to $3,500 per sale. Those who want to start earning right away will often choose a direct sales compensation plan over a multi level marketing plan. Examples of such direct sales home based internet business include companies such as Cruise to Cash or IBuzzPro.

Whichever type of internet marketing plan you choose, you should understand that most plans offer legitimate products that are desired by other people and also save them money. Internet marketing is a multi billion dollar business and many feel is the wave of the future for those who wish to be entrepreneurs.
