Before we get started let’s look at the facts from a business point of view

Competition

According to the DSA, there are now 100 million people in Direct Sales.
97% of these people are in the health and wellness industry.  As great as companies can be, if there are too many people competing against you, it’s almost impossible to make those huge incomes as you always wanted.  If you had joined these huge companies when they first got started 20 years ago, you’d be in a good situation because there wasn’t that many companies back then in health and wellness.  Today, every month or even every week there is the newest latest and greatest health and wellness company.  And I’m constantly being approached by these company’s to join them, bring a team over, and they’ll give me some type of joining incentive (cash, inherit a downline, etc..).  In summary, if you’re today in a health and wellness company, it’s almost pointless.  Even if you establish a huge team, after a few months, when the latest and greatest company comes out, most of your team leaves you and now you’re back to trying to building a brand new team.  The industry retention ratio is roughly 10-18% so that means after one year with 100 people, only 10-18 of them are left.  It’s exhausting and if that’s the deal in health and wellness companies, then no thank you!

Stages of business timing

Risky Stage: (0-5 years old)
Much like traditional retail businesses, 90% of start up Direct Sales companies fail within the first 5 years of which 95% of them fail within the first 24 months – ASEA falls into the 0-5 year old category

Earning per distributor

According to the DSA health and wellness EPD is $1 this means each person in your team pays you $1 in passive income. Therefore to make $10,000 a month you need 10,000 people in your organization. In GWT our EPD is $8-16 meaning you need 8-16 times less people to make the 10,000 a month income!

High profit margin items versus low

GWT has the highest profit margins in the industry because we distribute and promote a luxury designer brand worn by hundreds of celebrities in every country in the world. Our product does not need to be pre-approved. This means with high profit margin items you need to sell less products to make a great retail income and need less people to make a 6 and 7 figure income. We have LC’s who have made 1 million dollars a year with 4000-7000 people
Okay let’s get started …

To under the payout in dollars one needs to know the conversion of PV to dollars

PV is the equivalent to $
Product Sales

In GWT you can earn 60-100% profit margins

The beauty of GWT’s products is that we have incredible numbers of people who actually sell retail through their virtual designer malls, look books and home branding parties. The true beauty about GWT is that when people sell through retail it pushes up volume which pays you in Residual Income. For FERI, you can easily earn 100%

Example:
In ASEA you sell $150 and make a retail commission of $30
In GWT if you sold a product for $150 you would make up to $75.00

In ASEA if you sold $300.00 you would make $60
In GWT if you sold $300.00 you would make up to $150.00

Preferred Customer

At GWT you get 30%-50% off our product lines which leads to MASSIVE retail sales
In ASEA you get wholesale pricing which is less than 30-50% off

Autoship versus GWT’s Monthly Inventory Account

Our auto revenue mechanism is not the industry standard and highly dreaded “autoship” leads to poor retention, monthly shipping and tax charges. We have revolutionized the auto revenue mechanism by creating what we call the MIA program, (Monthly Inventory Account). Imagine if every distributor and client on your team buys/sells/saves $35, $75 or $150 of products every month, like the autoship.
The savings will go towards the dream items which LCs want personally, or for resale. Of course, when you are the celebrity’s designer line with celebrity clients like Carmen Electra and Gene Simmons, there are many dream items that every LC would want, and as a result, we have a monumental retention ratio and monthly activity ratio (MIA).

So our consultants are not overloaded with the same products monthly that they don’t need or even want. Our LCs do not go off their monthly IA program of $35, $75 or $150/month because they are working towards that dream timepiece, handbag, Shields (sunglasses) or jewellery they have always wanted or they are simply buying the next dream item they want on their wish list.

In essence if GWT LCs aren’t buying or selling products with their IA account monthly, they are treating it like a layaway plan towards that next dream item or saving their points for that next big Branding party. Our Luxury Consultants love that no automatic monthly shipment takes place unless they place an order, which saves them shipping fees and basement space.

 

Fast Start Bonus

In ASEA if someone buys 1 case you get $20
In GWT if you launch a VDM you receive up to $50
In ASEA if you launch someone who gets 8 cases you get $160 as enroller
In GWT if you launch 8 VDM’s you receive up to $400
Team Commissions

This is the heart and soul of any compensation plan and the one area everyone should focus on.
Bonuses are great but they happen once. You do the work once and get paid once – think of a sales job.

In ASEA it is a 1/3 and 2/3 which is their pay leg and power leg respectively. In ASEA you only get paid out on the lesser leg. If a company is only going to pay you on one leg then you’re never going to reach or cash out on the work from the other leg.

At GWT, not only are we a 1/3 and 2/3 but also a 2/3 and 1/3 AND a 50/50 and anything in between because GWT is a variable binary compensation plan. Would you rather only get paid out on one leg or both legs to infinity?

Example:

Let’s say ASEA gets paid 10% on the pay leg which is the LESSER leg
With an example of 100,000 PV on one leg and 200,000 PV on another. In ASEA company you get 10% of the pay leg which is $10,000 BUT in GWT you get 10% of BOTH legs which is $10,000 + $20,000 for a total of $30,000!!   Hence, GWT PAYS 3 TIMES MORE!!!  Would you rather earn $10,000 or earn $30,000?

 

So why don’t more companies copy it? Simple, it’s too costly to the corporation as commissions go out automatically every week permanently with no qualifications andre-qualifications, and CEOs and stock holders don’t like that. Most plans over the past 15 years are set with less CV commissions and more large one-time bonuses that participants have to qualify for every month to receive.
FREE FLOWING format means that there are no restrictions at all in the form of RANKS that restrict the flow of funds or CV. From day 1, a new participant is able MAXIMIZE the comp plan without qualifications or re-qualifications. The cycles can take place in a 50-50 scenario, 1/3-2/3 scenarios or ANY combination (thousands of ways) that meet the cycle volume requirement. Hence its name, “VARIABLE”. This is the FIRST in the industry.
FLUSHING/RESET VOLUME

In GWT we never flush your volume aslong as you contribute $35, $75 or $150 a month – in ASEA your volume will be reset if you do not have 100PV
Ranks and Levels

In GWT the maximum payout can be obtain on day 1 by launching as a diamond.

In ASEA , there are 11 ranks – from active Associate to Triple Diamond

Real question here is would you rather max out a plan on day 1 (equal opportunity for all) or work months/years to max out a pay plan? Unless you lock the top ranks in this company and maintain the qualifications you cannot get paid out the maximum that Triple Diamond pays out

Check Match

In GWT you get a check match on your 1st generation and 2nd generation all the way to infinity on both teams –unlimited amount, no maintaining, qualifying or requalifying

In ASEA they have check match but strict requirements and requalification

Would you rather qualify and requalify for check match or receive check match on day 1 forever by launching as a diamond?
Want Versus Need
It’s easier to purchase and sell a WANT then a NEED. Want is more powerful then need. For example, people don’t need to smoke but they want to. People don’t need to drink, but they want to. People don’t need to buy designer labels but they want to. In nutrition, selling a need was good many years ago when there was only a few nutritional companies or telecom companies or utility companies. Nowadays there are too many choices amongst MLM and even the local grocery and pharmacies buy nutrional items. IN GWT people are happy saving into their monthly IA like a lay-away plan towards a product they want. Therefore we do not have autoship and our clients do not pay taxes and shipping every month for the same product. Instead they save up for the ones they want and purchase it when they want. This is great for wearing the products, selling them, gifts or using them as a hedge against inflation.

 

Products Maintain/Gain Value

GWT Products gain value over time such as the FERI Silver, FERI MOSH line, and more. Other companies have products that do not gain value over time. They are mostly consumed, tossed in the garbage, or go obsolete.

Products have Verifiable Retail Value

GWT Products are certified and appraised by the world’s largest third-party companies such as GIA, AGS, IGI and GemLabs and the value of what you bought can be verified. Other companies may sell products where there is no way to determine the actual retail value.

Products are Visual

GWT Products are Visual and can be worn at all times to promote your business. Other companies have products that are not visual and you would not be as easy to promote on you.

Products are Culturally Accepted

GWT Products (fashion) are accepted by all cultures all over the world. Other companies may have products in which certain cultures are not accustomed too.
Team Commissions % Payout

This is the bread and butter, the focus of MLM is to build a long term passive income. The higher the better and it has to be on all of your business. GWT pays 8% on the first level down to infinite. Others don’t pay to infinite or it’s a low pay out.

Cap on Commission Based on Rank?

GWT has no cap on your commission based on ranks. Other companies don’t allow you to earn the full commissions until you unlock a certain level rank. Why the hassles of working through ranks when GWT has none?

 

 

 

 

Do Ranks impact your pay?

Aside from the commission, does the ranks impact your other revenue streams and bonuses. With GWT it doesn’t because there are no ranks.

Active Personal Requirement

With GWT, you only need two personal sponsors to start earning commissions but you start to accumulate volume even without the two. With other companies, you need to have certain number of personal sponsorships to unlock your commissions or to maintain commissions.

Car Program and Car Program Monthly Qualifications

GWT has two car programs for the luxury line and also the elite line and best of all, there are no monthly qualifications to maintain. Once you achieve it, it’s yours for 18 months. Other car programs you are on the lease and if you can’t maintain your qualifications, you have to pay out of your own pocket.

Total Payout

The higher the total payout, the more income one can earn. But one must also understand that a high payout doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to unlock those commissions. With GWT, it’s a high payout (70%) and there is nothing to stop one from unlocking the highest and attaining the most commissions.
Conclusion:
Main issues are strict binary, low retention, market is COMPLETELY saturated. GWT just has so many more income earning streams so for the same work you can get paid several times more in GWT!!!
