Gold Package plus close to 100 additional man-hours of assistance after your compensation plan is designed:

  • Training:  Prelaunch software testing – we teach you how to make sure your software works before you turn it on. Additional software testing services available on an hourly basis.

  • Technical Software Document Review: some software providers prepare a highly detailed document that explains how they will program your compensation plan into their software. Any errors found in this document will create errors in how you commission checks are calculated. We will edit and correct this document for you (typically requires 20 to 30 hours of work on our part).
  • Review and correct all materials you create that describe how the plan works such as web pages, distributor manuals, brochures, etc., to avoid making expensive mistakes in your published documentation on the plan
  • Up to 2 webinar conference calls with your leaders or prospective founders to explain how the compensation plan works and help them to feel passionate about the opportunity
