Should You Be Stacking Your MLM Team?
Category : Network Marketing
If you’re at the point in your business where you’re thinking about stacking your MLM team. then you probably have several distributors already. You have also probably started to realize the chess game that starts when building your team.
Depending on your compensation plan, there are ways to manipulate your team building to get you maximum income and promote at a faster pace. That team manipulation is usually referred to as stacking your MLM team.

Stacking is basically just putting a new distributor immediately under one of your downline reps as opposed to personally sponsoring them.
There are several things to keep in mind when it comes to determining if stacking is right for you. The biggest one is the company you’re with and how their compensation plan works.
Maybe you’re in a unilateral or bilateral comp plan. Maybe it’s a matrix plan. You know your comp plan better than anyone. Does it make sense for you to be stacking your MLM team?
In my company in particular, 95% of the time it does not make financial or promotional sense to stack. There are only two occasions where it does make sense, right before the third and fourth promotional levels. Other than that, it’s best to personally sponsor new distributors.
If you’re going to be stacking your MLM team and it makes financial sense for you and your business, there are a couple of things I want you to keep in mind.
Stacking your MLM team could create a welfare system.
If you start stacking your MLM team, then your downline might become reliant on you. This becomes a problem (as we have seen in our society today) because people will stop working their businesses and rely on you to do it for them. Obviously, you don’t want that.
Stacking your MLM team could push revenue just out of reach.
For example, let’s say your compensation plan pays out to only your first 10 levels. This means that you’re not getting paid for level 11. Let’s also say you just recruited someone into your business but you want to stack them under a rep on your level 8 to help them promote.
Maybe that new rep sponsors someone (level 9) who sponsors someone (level 10) who sponsors someone (level 11) who becomes a million-dollar earner. Unfortunately, since you stacked them down to your 8th level, you’re not getting paid on anything that your million-dollar earner creates. See the problem?
Stacking your MLM team could be against your company’s policy.
This should go without saying but I’m going to say it anyways. Obviously you need to check with your upline leaders and your company to ensure stacking is not against their policy.
The rule of thumb for stacking your MLM team is, if it makes sense for you and your business go ahead and do it. If it doesn’t then don’t. Pretty simple.
