Anyone who knows anything about me knows how much I nag people about the importance of leverage, about sticking with something long enough for it to reap rewards, about how powerful and valuable multi-level programs are.
It’s just a few days away from my 5 year anniversary with EasyHits4U, a program that exemplifies all the above points of importance, so I thought I’d put pen to paper, figuratively speaking, and share some of my ‘vital statistics’.
My first referral was gained on the 17th March 2007 (that’s the only reason I know my join date must have been round about the next day or so because my first referral was a long term friend and would have joined right after me).
I’d already created VitalViralPro a few months before so naturally EasyHits4U went into the Downline Builder.
I never ever promoted EasyHits4U directly, everything was done through VitalViralPro – as I promoted VitalViralPro, so some of those incoming referrals would join one or more traffic exchanges below me and then in time, others would join below those referrals.
Also, it’s easy to think that I had an advantage because I owned VitalViralPro; not so! I promoted VitalViralPro like all the other members. I had no more advantage than you have when you’re the sponsor and your referral is…well, your referral.
So my EasyHits4U downline grew. It’s interesting that even now, after 5 years, I only have just under 400 direct referrals. That’s less than 7 referrals per month. But here’s where the magic happens…
Those 397 direct referrals have referred 1356 people; they in turn have referred 2087 people!
Those 2087 people have referred 4016, who’ve referred 6531 who’ve referred 6714.
That makes a staggering 21101 people in my downline!
That’s all well and good but what’s in it for me?
Well EasyHits4U is a 6-level program (if you’re upgraded, and I of course would be mad not to be!). I earn credits from my referrals (15%-10%-5%-3%-2%-1%) – so if a first level referral surfs and earns 1000 credits, I get a bonus of 150 credits. If a level 6 referral did that I’d get 10 credits.
I always explain this the same way to people that have yet to grasp the importance of getting referrals in traffic exchanges; most traffic exchanges pay 10% from direct referrals so having 10 referrals that surf the same as you is like having another you working for you for free.
So with my downline, 400 (approx) at 15% is like having 60 free surfers. On level 2, 1350 (approx) at 10% is like another 135.
Without showing all the math, it turns out my downline is like having an army of 617 surfers!!
If that isn’t leverage, I don’t know what is!!
Of course we all know that many, many of the downline will be inactive or surf very little. Even so, it’s enough to bring me in 22k credits a month for free. At EasyHits4U prices ($5.95/1000) , that’s $130 of credits I’m getting every month without needing to lift a finger. I can’t remember what I pay per month for membership but it sure isn’t $130.
My downline grew by 21 members in the last 24 hours too – so the whole this is really starting to compound now.
It’s grown by 18% in the last 9 months and it should keep growing at that kind of rate. And remember, I have promoted this program quite passively. If it was my main business and that was multilevel, I’d be promoting a lot more actively.
And that’s one of the key learning points with anything multilevel. All of the benefit comes later – often quite a lot later. And for a lot of people, that’s unpalatable – they want results now!
Well I didn’t sit on my backside doing nothing while I waited for my EasyHits4U downline to grow – I did lots of things that had a more immediate effect. But I have always planted seeds in multilevel programs where I see them because they’re your passport to an easier life!
I hope this post inspires you to plant your own seeds now – the sooner you do it, the sooner you reap the rewards.
