Trinary Compensation System:
Essential Access Network run what they call a “trinary” compensation system.
Apparently this is only a binary compensation structure but with three positions under the top position instead of two.
Above is a regular binary compensation diagram. Essential Access Network’s trinary team has an additional position on the first level (three instead of two depicted).
The group structure grows the same as a binary, by twice as many positions on each subsequent level.
In other words every one of the three first level positions multiply into two positions on the second level. Then, four positions on the third level and so on and so forth.
Essential Access Network associates are able to place enrolled affiliates in their trinary team.
However, If after seven days they haven’t placed a recruited affiliate, the system automatically fills the trinary team from left to right.
Group Volume (GV)
GV is the sum total of sales volume (BV) generated by downline subscription sales to retail customers and recruited affiliates.
However, the only BV amount provided in Essential Access Network’s compensation plan is a Diamond subscription. Which is equating to 80 BV a month.
Note that in order to count towards total downline requirements, downline affiliates must be on a Diamond subscription. (minimum 80 BV)
Essential Access Network Sign up Cost
Essential Access Network affiliate membership is $50 annual and $19.99 monthly fee.
MLM Commission Qualification
To qualify for MLM commissions an Essential Access Network affiliate must personally sell and maintain three active subscriptions.
These subscriptions can be purchased by retail customers or recruited affiliates.
Note that Essential Access Network’s compensation plan states that:
a minimum of fifty-five (55%) of leg volume requirement must come from non-IBO subscribers. (“Retail Plan” customers only
Essential Access Network affiliates earn a weekly commission tied to rank:
- Consultant and receive $25 a month.
- Builder and receive $125 a month.
- Producer and receive $250 a month.
- Executive and receive $500 a month.
- Vice President and receive $1000 a month.
- President and receive $2000 a month.
- Chairman and receive $5000 a month.
- Ambassador and receive $10,000 a month.
- Millionaire and receive $20,000 a month.
No refunds telemedicine subscriptions are a hard-sell. Especially in the midst of a pandemic where competition has ramped up due to social distancing.
However, if they enforce the 55% trinary leg, then that would be great!
It also means, you don’t have to worry about Essential Access Network being a pyramid scheme.
But if the rule is unenforced (pseudo-compliance), then what you want to do is to establish a rule with your potential upline.
The rule would be something like this:
Two of the three required subscriptions they need to qualify for commissions should be retail subscriptions.
You can start this conversation by enquiring how many active subscriptions the upline currently has. Then follow-up with how many of those active subscriptions are held by non-affiliates (retail customers).
Take any hesitation to answer as an attempt to hide there being little to no retail subscription sales.
Approach with caution.
