Industries are constantly evolving; this is no different in network marketing. Back in the 80s I believe a certain company came out with a new MLM business model and it got some attention from the regulators. They were put to the test and taken to court. The courts ruled in favor of the company finally realizing the business model is profitable and sustainable. Even since then all MLM companies have followed this new model and it became the standard. Almost 2 years ago a company was born that went out to revolutionize the MLM world. This company was called Zeek Rewards. Zeek introduced revenue sharing to the world; and it made a HUGE splash in the MLM world. Zeek made it possible to earn lots of money with little or no affiliates. I'm proof of that. I tested this business model by only sponsoring 6 people in my ENTIRE downline. In just over a year I was bringing home over $700/wk, and I replaced my income. Unfortunately, because Zeek grew so big, so fast they had their share of issues. Also, just like the company in the 80s that tried something new; Zeek too was under the regulators microscope. The Zeek management team struggled trying to fix the challenges they were facing. Shortly after the regulators came knocking. The SEC was able to convince a judge that Zeek was a ponzi scheme without ever needing any type of proof. The SEC came in and shut down Zeek Rewards for good. After Zeek was forced to shut down many other revenue sharing companies started sprouting up all over. They saw the HUGE potential, and how powerful revenue sharing can be. Most of these programs were trying to ride the wave Zeek created. Many of these companies launched before they were ready and couldn't handle the interest. Until now... There is a company right now that has taken the Zeek model, and tweaked it to please the regulators. As the company says "They were the myspace, we will be the facebook!", "We didn't invent it, but we are going to revolutionize it". Again, it's the same business model as Zeek where Joe and Susie average can earn a living, but done in a way to satisfy the regulators. They are also changing the game with the ability to move your personal affiliates around in their separate UniLevel plan. I never saw that done before! Think about it... someone on your 3rd generation is working hard but can't seem to recruit anyone.. You can give him one of your "legs" and they can earn off them (you will earn off them as well, so you don't lose money). Thats an amazing idea! Are we in the early stages of MLM transformation? All the companies that I've noticed that launched lately all have some form of revenue sharing plan built in. I know some are scared to get back into revenue sharing after the Zeek shut down. In my opinion all it takes is one STRONG company to do everything right, and to prove this model works. What are your thoughts? Do you think revenue sharing is here to stay?
