$50 Refundable Deposit option

January 16, 2012 $50 Refundable Deposit option:

This is required by law. Someone can become a distributor for $50 however everyone that wants to become successful should consider purchasing the Marketing Distributor Package for $295. It gives you everything you need to be successful in your SendOutCards business (this is how it should be stated).

Personally, I will never sign someone up for $50. I will ask them to save up their money to purchase the Marketing Distributor Package and in the meantime just be a customer or preferred customer.

QUESTIONS ABOUT 60 DAYS VS 90 DAYS

I clarified with Kody tonight that the correct time frame for triggering the CAB Bonus should show as 60 days and not 90 days. There are some in congruencies around this number on our website.

When a new distributor enters your organization, they have 60 days to acquire 2 subscription customers to trigger your bonus. Again, changes are in the process of being made and I did confirm this tonight with Kody himself.

Is SendOutCards offering a transitional period for rank advancement?


Transitional period to promote:

Any active Distributors that joined prior to January 5th have been converted to a Sr. Distributor, if they were not already. The new program requires a Sr. Distributor to obtain 3 Certified Trainers to rank advance to Manager, and 6 Certified Trainers to rank from Manager to Sr. Manager, in addition to the existing requirements. As a courtesy to distributors who joined before January 5th, SendOutCards is only requiring one Certified Trainer to rank advance to Manager or Sr. Manager for 60 days, and you count! (One Certified Trainer needed for each rank, in addition to other outstanding rank advancement requirements. If not achieved by March 7th, the new rank advancement requirements must be met).

SHARING THE COMP PLAN

Keep it simple. When one confused person shares the plan with a new person and then that person becomes confused, everything can come to a dead halt. Most likely you decided to join SOC (and possibly even build it) before you saw a comp plan. About 1/2 the people you show SOC to will get frozen if they don’t understand something. So what’s the solution?? Give people just enough that that they can make a decision but not so much that they get confused.

I like to describe it this way, if someone goes into a karate studio to get trained to become a black belt and they ask, “what does it take to become a 3rd degree blackbelt”? What will the sensei say? He will say, “you’ll learn it all, but for now we need to master your kicks and your punches”. After that, we’ll work on getting your first belt. It would be really overwhelming trying to know everything necessary to for someone to achieve a black belt during their first week. One step at a time.

Here’s what people want to know:

1. Is this for real?

2. Can I do it?

3. Is there any money in it?

I couldn’t tell you how to take my car apart and put it back together. I can’t explain to you how it works (in fact I don’t want to fill my brain up with that info). But I CAN drive it!!

All this being said, it’s nice to know but not necessary to know how the comp plan works. Refrain from teaching the complexities of our compensation plan to prospective distributors, just know that if you do it, you are drastically slowing down your growth.

WHEN SOMEONE ASKS ME FOR COMPENSATION PLAN DETAILS:

I say, “You’ll learn it all. I want you to fully comprehend the fundamentals first (how to get qualified and how to get your money back). And then we’ll work on getting your first promotion. The rest of it will come with time”.

You can tell the “Black Belt” analogy.

PROMOTIONS:

Each promotion is like a room in a house that you are remodeling. You can’t go into another room to start the remodeling until you have COMPLETED the room you are in.

CAB BONUSES:

C.A.B. (Customer Acquisition Bonuses) These are your bonuses for helping a new distributor get started. When a new MD joins your team, they must get 2 subscription customers in their first 60 days to trigger the bonus to you and your upline.

THE $40 BASIC TRAINING PAYOUT

This is paid to CT’s (Certified Trainers) that physically train a new distributor. They are completely independent of the CAB Bonuses. When a CT trains a new distributor, the $40 is paid to the person doing the training.

GETTING THE ‘Q’:

This is the very first thing you should train your new distributor to do. They want to get their ‘Q’ so they are qualified for all the compensation in the plan.

LEVELS:

1 Level (Kids)

2 Level (Grandkids)

3 Level (Great Grandkids)

etc

To get paid on levels 0 – 1 (zero level are your customers) you’ll need $31 in PCV (Personal and Customer Volume) to get paid on levels 2-7 you’ll need 2 subscription customers.

To get paid on levels 7 and beyond you’ll need to have 2 subscription customers and $93 in monthly PCV.

Everyone should work on getting their ‘Q’ right away!

CERTIFIED TRAINING PROGRAM:

1. It’s a TOTALLY SEPARATE AND OPTIONAL PROGRAM. Here’s how I present it as I’m going through the options:

“There are two reasons why you should consider the Optional Certified Trainer Program. #1. Either I’m going to get paid to train your people or you are going to get paid to train your people. If you pay the $345 and get certified as a certified trainer, you will get paid $40 to train each new MD ($295) OR I can get paid that money for training them, it’s up to you. Oh, and you need one CT to get your first promotion (you get a raise). That CT can be you. What do you want to do”.

TRAINING OVERRIDES:

1 PERSONALLY SPONSORED QCT (Qualified Certified Trainer) – You get $8 any time ANY CT that is personally sponsored trains a new MD.

2 PERSONALLY SPONSORED QCT’s – You get $10 any time ANY CT that is personally sponsored trains a new MD.

3 PERSONALLY SPONSORED QCT’s – You get $14 any time ANY CT that is personally sponsored trains a new MD.

A QCT is a CT that has their ‘Q’.

WHAT IS AN SCT AND AN ECT?

An SCT is a Senior Manager that has paid for their Senior Certified Trainer Certification and gotten certified to certify CT’s to do the Basic Training. They get paid $80 for each person they certify.

An ECT is an Executive that has paid for their Executive Certified Trainer Certification and gotten certified to certify CT’s to do the Basic Training. They get paid $100 for each person they certify.

SHOWING THE BUSINESS:

You can now order the new ASEND magazine under Purchase Products.

The last few pages have a simple napkin presentation. This is the second best 3rd party tool we have. The very best is the Gift Accounts that allow you to assist someone else in sending their first card.

SPECIAL NOTICE

The US Postal Service is increasing it’s rates beginning January 22nd. The new prices for United States postage, are as follows:

First Class Mail stamp (for letters & cards) 45 cents

2nd ounce remains the same at 20 cents

First-Class Mail postcard 32 cents

It will cost a few pennies more to mail cards and postcards but this increase is a US Postal Service increase and not a SendOutCards increase. The system will automatically meter your cards with the correct postage. You may need to adjust your PERSONAL WEBSITE OPTIONS (under DISTRIBUTOR tab) to reflect this change for your GIFT ACCOUNTS.
