4 Reasons To Improve Your Compensation Plan

If your compensation plan isn't producing the results you expect, you either need to improve your plan or lower your expectations.

No one wants to lower their expectations; that's like giving up.  There is a better way.


When should my plan be improved?

Plan Now To Attend Direct Selling School

Benjamin Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest".

Ben was right about many things, and this was one of them. The more you know, the more successful you will be.

Four years ago, Sylvina Consulting with Kevin Thompson, the MLM attorney, held the first Direct Selling Edge Conference, a two-day school that is pure education for new and young party plan and network marketing companies.

From the start, our purpose has been to educate attendees so that when they return to their companies, they bring home a bucket of wisdom and a stack of action steps they can take right away to build, launch, grow, or improve their businesses.

You're in luck. Our next school will be held soon on Monday and Tuesday, October 5-6, 2015 in Ft. Worth, Texas, a new location for our 12th school.

At only $250 for individual tickets and $300 total for teams of 2, 3, or 4, direct selling team education has never been so good.

This is the time to register and book your travel while the costs are low.


Ask Victoria

Is There A Legal Requirement For Customer Sales?


Party plan companies don't ask me this question, because almost all of their sales are to customers.

If yours is a network marketing company, however, this is an important question to which you need to know both the short and the long answer.



Did you know that Sylvina Consulting improves new and established network marketing and party plan direct selling companies, so that they can grow faster?

Direct selling and compensation plans are not just our business; they are our passions!  We love what we do.

This is why for 4 years we have our two-day school for companies, the Direct Selling Edge Conference.  We know we're on the right track when our students tell us:

"Coming to this conference for me was the best thing to do as a new business owner. There was something new to learn from each speaker."  N.L.

"Really, really impressed at the quality and quantity of information."  H.R.

"I loved your conference! I learned so much in such a short time. You covered every aspect of startup and managing a company. Overall, a great experience. Keep up the good work!"  C.M.

"For experienced MLM management teams like ours, attend and you will leave with increased awareness in critical areas of your business.  This conference was a blessing.  You exceeded our expectations."  B.K.

"All of the speakers were good.  I give the whole experience a 10 out of 10!  Well done!"  K.B.

With guidance from Sylvina Consulting, you can benefit from our suggestions, recommendations and deliverables gained from nearly 30 years of experience working with more than 400 direct selling companies.

Compensation plan design and evaluation are two of our specialties.  Others include business plan development, editing and writing marketing content, sales training, software implementation consulting, and business performance reviews.

We welcome the opportunity to be of service to you, your company, and its independent representatives.
