Another brilliant piece by a Mary Kay nsd. If you’re a director or you want to be a director, check out how pathetic the numbers are in Mary Kay. Wonder why? Because in endless chain recruiting schemes (called pyramid schemes by some, with that characterization denied by Mary Kay), almost everyone fails. It’s just plain math. There are too many people at the bottom of the pyramid for any great number of them to be successful.
- 1/3 of your consultants will order an average of $400; 1/3 are thinking about it; 1/3 are on the way out
- Your unit should recruit a minimum of its size (exclusive of personal recruits)
- Company statistics indicate a new recruit will place an initial order of $1,000
- 20% of your unit will generate 80% of your production
