Hybrid MLM plan is one of the fairest network marketing plans out there. This plan came into existence in 1985. Hybrid plan is a merger of the binary compensation plan and unilevel compensation plan. The best was taken out of both to eventually design a plan that is the most profitable in the industry. Hybrid Unilevel Plan consists of one salesforce classification. Everyone is considered a distributor under this plan. There are no sales leaders. An affiliate is paid on distributors down to a specific number of levels. There is another interesting criteria of compensation, besides classification of salesforce. How long a distributor in the downline been a part of the company also determines the compensation. If an affiliate signs up new people, he/she can make more money off the new one for a specific period of time. Later on, this amount decreases. Under the hybrid plan, then new recruits are also paid well up to a specific point of time of being in the network. The sponsors can achieve monthly sales volume either with the help of total organizational volume or with the help of volume within a specific number of levels. Breakaways are not lost here. Sales leaders can surplus their income from them. The volume in the breakaway doesn’t have to be replaced.
