After four decades, the Forever Living Compensation Plan has remained virtually unchanged.
Sure…There’s been an occasional tweak here and there. However, the overall “functioning of the Plan doesn’t seem to have changed by much.
In a recent interview, Forever’s EVP, Aidan O’Hare gave a simple explanation for this…
“If it aint broke, don’t fix it.”
That statement makes a lot of sense when you consider how well this compensation plan has been working for them. The Company has been consistently growing and most of the 9.5 million-plus global distributors love the plan .
So…It came as a surprise when Forever Living recently announced that they will be making a couple of changes to their Compensation Plan. Starting from 1 December 2020, the Company will be implementing three new policies that will affect some elements of The Plan.
Let’s take a look at these new policy changes and what they mean for Forever Business Owners (FBOs).
1. The Preferred Customer Policy.
As of 01/12/2020, Forever Living will be getting rid of the “Novus Customer” level of the Marketing Plan. This level will be replaced with the “Preferred Customer” level.
This means that people who merely complete and submit the Distributor Application Form will now have the title of “Preferred Customers“. Furthermore, instead of the 15% Discount that Novus Customers currently enjoy, Preferred Customers will only get a 5% Discount. The 10% that used to be part of the Novus Customer Discount goes to the FBO who has sponsored the Preferred Customer.
This means that, as an FBO, you will now get to 25% of the retail value of the sales generated by Preferred Customers in your team…Instead of the current 15% on Novus Customer sales.
2. Assistant Supervisor Boost Policy
Under the current version of the Plan, FBOs are given an additional discount on top of the compulsory 30%. The percentage amount of this additional discount depends on what level you’re on in the Marketing Plan:
- Assistant Supervisor = +5%,
- Supervisor = +8%,
- Assistant Manager = +13%,
- Manager = +18%.
However, starting from December 1, 2020, this additional discount will be given as a part of the Personal Bonus.
Now, this is not really a new policy…
The Personal Bonus was always a part of the FLP Marketing plan…until just a few years ago when the Company decided to give it up-front in the form of a Personal Discount.
The difference this time around is that Assistant Supervisors also have to meet the same qualification criteria as the other levels in order to receive this Bonus…They have to produce a minimum personal sales volume of 4cc’s (Case Credits,) per month to qualify for the Personal Bonus.
However, an FBO never loses the opportunity to qualify for future Bonuses during any month in which he/she is 4cc Active.
3. The 36 Month “Archive” Policy
Under the new 36 Month Policy, Forever Living will “archive” FBOs who haven’t made any product purchase in 3 years. Furthermore, any sponsored downline that an FBO who is being archived has will move to the next FBO Upline.
This, however, does not mean that the archived FBO will lose their position in the Marketing Plan…
Archived FBOs will keep their level in the Comp Plan, even if they forfeit their downline as a result of this new Policy.
This means that they can still access their discount on their favorite products. Furthermore, if they choose to build a Business in the future, all of the benefits of their earned level in the Marketing Plan will still be available to them.
How will these changes to the Forever Living Compensation Plan affect FBOs?
If you are a Forever Business Owner, you might be concerned about how these new policy-changed will affect your business. However, when you take a closer, open-minded look at the new policies, you’ll realize that they don’t change the Marketing Plan by much.
These new changes to the Forever Compensation Plan – like all previous changes -don’t really alter the plan by much. In fact, they are an improvement to what was already an excellent Compensation Plan…
- Increased Profitability for FBOs: The 25% Preferred Customer Profit is a significant increase on the 15% Novus Customer Profit. This new Policy will allow FBOs to earn a larger profit earlier on in their Business building journey and beyond.
- Discourages Complacency: Sometimes people get to a point in their Network Marketing career when they stop doing the work.
- Encourages Growth: Under the current policy, Assistant Supervisors don’t have to meet the 4cc Active criteria in order to receive bonuses. The new “Boost” policy will encourage new FBOs to begin building their business on the foundation and best practice of being 4CC Active.
