Momentis is a new Electric Service MLM Work From Home Energy Company

Momentis I just found another MLM energy company today called Momentis. I clicked on the link and the person who signed up for this opportunity must have already quit because the link was invalid.

This company is powered by an electric company that has been around for awhile now called, Just Energy.

I have talked to commercial businesses about Just Energy in the past and from my knowledge they have been very aggressive. They had feet on the street sales guys canvasing business districts offering their rates.

This practice is typical of even TXU and Reliant Energy so there is nothing wrong with this I just say this to explain Just Energy has and will try anything to be competitive hence why they are in MLM.

Momentis is an MLM company powered by Just Energy and they don’t just sell electric service but also natural gas, TV, internet, and phone.

If you are wondering about this opportunity and how it compares to the rest I have news for you. As far as I am concerned I already kind of know what the compensation plan will look like before even looking.

It has become increasingly predictable what these companies compensation plans look like. The main thing I would worry about is if the company will allow you to keep whatever ranking you achieve when they eventually change their compensation plan or add more positions.

Think about this, most of these MLM energy companies adjust their plans by adding a new rank in the mix. This dilutes your stake in the money pool and continuously makes it harder for you to remain at the top.

Some MLM companies will vet you and keep you in whatever position you achieve and will not allow a new rank to push you down but will in fact promote you to that new level that did not exist when you first joined.

What companies look out for you in this way? Not many.

Regarding the compensation plan it appears it looks similar to many, such as Ignite Energy, The Green Mountain Energy MLM, and a few others. You basically get very little compensation for actually signing up electric service customers directly.

You get bonuses for signing up customers within 30 day time slots. For each 5 additional customers you get in 30 days it appears they pay you $100. That means you are getting $20 a customer one time. You also get $1 a month for each active customer you personally maintain that you have signed up directly.

Overall the compensation you get for the direct work you put into getting active customers is very little compared to other MLM companies I know about.

The real money comes in by building large active down-lines of representatives that are selling the opportunity. The reason this is where the good money comes in is because large bonuses are paid out when new recruits join.

The site does not go into how much the Myteam bonuses are or how much the myLeadership bonuses are which is curious to me but I suspect they are fairly big in the $100 – $300 range.

Keep in mind to get these bonuses your recruit has to pay a large upfront membership fee and sign up 2 customers in 30 days. Once this happens you get the initial $100 mentor bonus. The additional bonuses are paid out as your recruits qualify for more levels and are trained.

This compensation plan is very similar to many others. The hard part is in building a down-line that is very active. This is very hard to do but can be done. I produced a video that explains what the long term goal should be with anyone considering joining an MLM company. For most of us including myself it is far beyond something I would want to get involved in.

 

Affordable Energy Beefing Up Their Compensation Plan

Affordable Energy is a small privately owned electricity service company in Houston Texas. Affordable Power created a division of their company called Affordable Energy that sales in a MLM direct sales business model. This is not unfamiliar to Texas when it comes to selling essential services like telephone and electric service. It really all started with Excel Telecommunications when at one time they were the 3rd or 4th largest long distance provider in the USA. Excel started in Dallas Texas and after they went out of business back in the early 2000’s many of their executives started up Ignite Energy to sell electricity service instead. The telecommunications market dried up as margins grew thinner and thinner and so the deregulation of the Texas electricity market provided a quick and easy leap from Excel to Ignite for many of the founders that worked the direct sales model over at Excel. Affordable Energy has recently kick started their MLM electricity sales business by offering a compensation plan that looks a little more familiar to that of the Ignite and Ambit Energy compensation plans but still quite a bit different. The overrides received through signing up reps is one of the main things we noticed that looks similar to the other compensation plans. The similar plan makes since as many companies like Ambit Energy, Ignite, and Excel have created very large successful organizations by implementing such plans. It is our opinion that Affordable Energy is positioning itself for quick growth over the next year with several undisclosed but big things in the works to compete with the Ignite and Ambit opportunities.

MLM Companies Are Popular in The Texas Market

In Texas there has been a slew of Texas electricity companies following in the tracks of Ignite Energy who started up a MLM division of their company to sell electricity service through a direct sales MLM business model. Ignite has a traditional division of their company called Stream Energy to keep risk at a minimum. Similar to Ignite Affordable Energy also has two divisions with both a traditional electric company and a direct sales MLM side to the business. Ignite claimed at one time they had 400,000 electricity service customers in Texas and although smaller than TXU or Reliant it is still a pretty big chunk of electricity service customers and enough to make Reliant and TXU Energy worry a little. I believe TXU and Reliant Energy have a few million residential electricity customers a piece which makes me wonder how far off Ignite Energy would have to meet or beat those numbers. Take for instance where Ignite Energy sprouted from when they first started business at the Dallas Infomart. Excel became the 3rd or 4th largest telecommunications company in the United States. This type of success means it is not completely inconceivable for a company like Ignite or Affordable Energy to meet or surpass the amount of electricity customers companies like TXU and Reliant Energy have.

Larger Payouts For Signing Up Sales Associates

With the increased money to be paid out when a sponsoring rep signs up someone else it becomes much more attractive for professional MLM business people to sign up to sell for Affordable Energy. One pattern that we have seen with successful companies is waiting for some other company to lead the way and than come in and reinvent the wheel and take over. In fact many companies have done this and have taken over the business of prior leaders in the market. For instance, Yahoo at one time was the leader in search but Google came in several years later with a much better search engine and took them over by a large margin. Tivo was a great idea that involved recording TV shows in real time to be watched later and giving people the ease of fast forwarding through commercials. Satellite and cable television companies have added TV recording to their boxes and have far outsold Tivo ever since. Whenever a new technology or product comes out you can bet another company will come out a few years later and out do them. This is the expectation that Affordable Energy has when people decide on what direct sales MLM company to go with.

The Downside To Direct Sales and MLM

The downside to direct sales and MLM companies is that many of them eventually go out of business as the pyramid like structure kind of implodes on itself. The math seen in a typical rep and sales growth chart resembles a pyramid and cannot sustain itself based on the representation. A few at the top end up making a lot of money while those at the bottom may break even or lose money when involved in an MLM company. Knowing the risks of joining an MLM company to sell electricity service is important. As long as you are aware that the income representation is not typical of most sales reps you can join one of these companies with realistic expectations.

Zurvita and MXEnergy take on MLM Electric Service

Other MLM Related Electricity Companies Competing With Zurvita Energy

Ambit Energy – started after Ignite and uses a similar compensation plan and borrowed some execs as well. Ignite and Ambit do not get along.
Ignite Energy – The first MLM electricity service company in Texas when Texas deregulated. Many sales associates came from the bankrupt Excel telecom.
Affordable Energy – A traditional electricity company which added an MLM side of their business to add market share in an attempt to gather as many customers as companies like Ignite which claims to have 400,000 electric service customers.
New Age Power Brokers – A recent development as of 2009 that offers a business to business referral network but their claim is that they are not an MLM company like Zurvita, Ignite, and Affordable Energy.
GME – Green Mountain Energy Company is a traditional electric company that added an MLM division in an attempt to add additional market share. They pride themselves in their green and renewable energy choices.

Zurvita is a new MLM Energy Business Based in Several States

A few companies have followed after the steps of Ignite Energy to see if they too can increase their market share by creating a multi level marketing company to add additional electric service customers to their company. Ignite started after Excel Telecommunications went out of business. Excel sold their downline list to Shaklee (a vitamin MLM company) and many of these Excel reps said, “no thank you” and helped to start Ignite. Based on online information it is said that Ignite has signed up over 400,000 electric service customers. This is not confirmed but if this is true it makes since why traditional electric companies like MXEnergy, Green Mountain Energy and Affordable Power Plan would attempt to create an MLM company to add additional customers. If Ignite did it then it would make since that other electric providers could do the same thing. Zurvita is located in several states although the biggest market with an incentive for customers to switch providers remains in Texas. The margins are a bit thinner in other states with little if no incentive to switch providers.

Energy MLM’s Overdone in Texas

An issue with MLM is that it can sometimes be overdone. As an example, Ambit Energy is a close copy cat to Ignite Energy and both Ignite and Ambit Energy are on the decline as this opportunity has been heard by most people in the state of Texas and not as many people are interested anymore. In order to start up a succesfull MLM electric service company you need a different compensation plan then the other electric providers that will raise eybrows enough to attract people to the opportunity. Many people joined Ambit, Ignite, and now Zervita but haven’t made that much money. The hard part of the business is signing up electric service customers. Ambit, Ignite and now Zervita pay out a very small amount in residual income for personally sponsored electric service customers.

Don’t Waste Valuable Time

If you have spent anytime at all in building an MLM business you may know that you can waste several years signing up sales reps and getting the needed electric service customers only to have made a few hundred dollars over the course of the year. You don’t want to just be spinning your wheels for a year to find out the opportunity isn’t going to work for you. When choosing an MLM opportunity you want to make sure you get paid very well for signing up personally sponsored electric service customers. This will allow you to build up a traditional income while also building an MLM sales organization. By having a traditional commission pay structure for personally sponsored electric service customers you can create a business with little risk that the opportunity will not work out. You can then also build an MLM sales organization and not have all your eggs in one basket hoping that your downline takes off. Not everybodys downline takes off, especially if you came into the work from home opportunity late in the game.

Which MLM Electric Companies are Worth Joining?

A couple of work from home energy businesses that have a good upfront pay plan for personally sponsored electric customers are with Affordable Energy and Green Mountain Energy. Both of these companies started out as traditional energy companies and continue to have their two divisions. You can make very good money signing up personally sponsored electric service customers with these two companies. The residual with both of these providers is about $6 a month per customer. There is also a customer aquisition bonus with either company anywhere from $10 – $20 per customer. Affordable Energy offers the added benefit of being able to sign up commercial energy customers. A new commercial energy opp in Texas has created a little buzz known as New Age Energy Power Brokers. New Age mainly brokers commercial power for Glacial Energy which is licensed in several states. Sales associates get paid 40 percent on the commission New Age receives. This means that if a store using 40,000 kWh a year signs up a sales associate will make about $4 a month in commission on that customer. Many people see the 40 percent and say wow before doing the math. This is good commission but one must consider the customer you should be targeting to make money at something like this.

Affordable Electric Rates

Selling Electricity To Residential and Commercial Customers

By selling electricity to residential and commercial electric customers in Texas you can create a business that will pay you residual commissions throughout the life of the contract. You will also receive an upfront one time payment for any customers you sign up which will help keep a sizable income coming in as you build your sales organization. The concentration is on gathering electricity customers. They want you to obtain at least 5 Texas electric customers before you qualify to receive the full compensation plan.
