Exposed: Company-Wide 2 by infinity forced matrix
Let's start off by exposing the facts about the popular company-wide 2 x infinity forced matrix, in which people get paid even without sponsoring.
Cycle pay occurs from company-wide efforts on the front end, and a position is often worth several thousand dollars or more (if it goes through all of the cycles).
This pay plan has been copied time and time again because people believe that everyone gets paid.
Whenever I have seen this “formula” advertised, the overwhelming focus has been that everyone will get paid even if they don't sponsor anyone.
The way these programs work is that you are paid every time you have a certain number of people fall below you in a company wide matrix.
It always sounds a lot more simple than it really is. Well, it is if you are the very first person at the top of the matrix, but as you join further down it becomes more and more difficult.
How Many People Fall On That Level Only
Total People In
Company When That Level Is Full
If you are the top person, then it only takes 2 more people in the whole company for your first level to be filled.
But if you are number 1023 (the last person on level 10):
you need to wait for 1024 more people to join before 2 fall under you.
and another 2048
before you have 4 on your second level. To get to the point of having 1
28 people falling under you, you actually need 7 full levels to be filled beneath you.
your final cycle won't be complete until level 17 is filled and 131,071 have joined the company.
Don't assume everyone gets paid just because that's how the program is marketed. It's safer to assume that “most people won't” - which means most people throw their money away if they only joined the company for those pay checks and not the product or service itself.
