What Is the IBO of ACN?

if you join and find just 5 friends to also join, you might get these services for free!  The ACN opportunity doesn’t end at free services, you can also earn residual income with ‘your own online ACN business’.  Every time one of your referrals pays a bill, you’ll get a commission.  It doesn’t end there though, you can also earn from their referrals. So like any MLM business the more you recruit the more money you make.

How Do I become a member of ACN?

In order to become an independent business owner ( IBO ) with ACN, In order to become a member of ACN, you first need to fill out the ACN individual business owner agreement form.

There is an “application fee” of $499 which must be paid on submission of your application form.

On becoming an IBO you will have access to your own website where you can sell their services to potential customers.

However, you will not be an employee of ACN, but rather an independent business owner.

You are able to make your own schedule as this will be your own business

How Does ACN Compensation Plan Work

There are essentially three ways to earn income with ACN.

Personal Residuals:

Personal residual compensation includes the percentage of income you receive based on your 5 customers, you acquire, through their service plans with ACN. you will be paid between 2%-8% of your customer’s total monthly bills.+ you may also get your service free.

For example, if your personal customers are using $1,000 a month in ACN services; you’ll get paid 2% or $20 of that $1,000.per month through that one customer.

Team Residuals:

The ACN team residual compensation includes the percentage of income you receive based on your recruits recruiting their own recruits.

This is a 7-level uni plan, meaning that typically your recruits stay on your 1st level, their recruits go on your 2nd level, and so on all the way down to 7 levels. You earn 0.25% on levels 2-5, 1% on level 6, and 6% on level 7.Customer Acquisition Bonuses:

Customer acquisition bonuses are a one-time, up-front bonus you are paid for recruiting new customers to ACN.

When you help a personal sponsor become a team trainer; you will receive a bonus of $90-$275 depending on your leadership rank.

In order for you to become a team trainer, your sponsor must enroll for $499 and then recruit their first 6-8 customers within an allotted time frame.

I have left a video address of the ACN compensation plan in greater detail.

Is ACN Business opportunity A Scam?

ACN appears to be a legitimate company that has been around for 27 years. The company has legit services and products that people buy.

Yes, you can make money with ACN, provided that you are a very good salesperson and you are comfortable convincing people to buy into ACN plans. You should also be able to recruit people to you so that you can earn residual income.

With a large amount of the competition out there from other service providers, the chances of making an impact and potential income remains highly questionable.

What are The Pros

  • ACN is a well-established company and has been around since 1993, it operates worldwide and has over 1,500 employees
  • They are also the largest digital sales telecommunications company in the world and they do business in 20 countries across the globe.
  • ACN is based on services and products that people are already currently using eg Internet, television, and phone services, etc.
  • ACN also has an A+ rating a the BBB which is the standard mostly used by some to establish the legitimacy of a company.

What Are the Cons

It seems like just another MLM in that you make money by recruiting others to join up with ACN and become an IBO, even though you can make money by selling ACN services. You just have to be a very good salesperson and be willing to aggressively try and get people to join ACN.

My Thoughts

There are other ways to make money from home if you are not a salesperson or do not like the thought of recruiting, you could try affiliate marketing.

I think affiliate marketing is the best way to make money from anywhere you are all you need is a computer and a wifi connection, no person to person sales is involved, no inventory to keep

According to Wikipedia  Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts
