The company offers the following information regarding its compensation plan:

So let’s take a more detailed look at what an Independent Distributor can earn by gathering customers:

  • Customer Gathering Bonus (“CGB”) for each new customer you introduce: Up to £50 dependent upon how many different types of service the customer takes at the time they join

  • Promotional bonuses as you build your business.

  • A share of everything your personal customers spend using our services. We call this Residual income.

  • A share of everything spent by customers gathered by members of your (www.mlmlegal.com) team.

  • Special leadership bonuses.

When you’ve gathered just three personal customers you become a Qualified Distributor.

When you join us as an Independent Distributor, you can choose to gain access to our fantastic and free Business Builder App. If you have your own Tablet (Android, iOS, Windows or Kindle Fire) you can download a variety of tools, videos and information to help you gather customers and recruit Distributors.

If you don’t have a Tablet yet, then we can help! Our Tablet offer means you can receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, one of the world’s best-selling Tablets, for just £10 up-front, followed by 30 monthly payments of £10 – with no long-term commitment!

Your Tablet is supplied with an exclusive Utility Warehouse case, with its own keyboard.

Your own branded BMW Mini One

Hitting various targets will qualify you for ownership of a Utility Warehouse branded BMW Mini One. Not only a great incentive in itself, the value of a branded vehicle will help your marketing power no end, We also even have our own Utility Warehouse Mini owner’s club, which is great opportunity to meet and socialise with other like-minded Distributors.

Own a share of Telecom Plus PLC

Telecom Plus, the parent company of the Utility Warehouse, operates (www.mlmlegal.com) occasional Share Option promotions as an additional way for Distributors to share in the success of the company. The Options issued so far have been worth a staggering £9million, creating huge gains for many Distributors. This is your chance to obtain a ‘FREE’ allocation of Share Options in a fast-moving PLC listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Promotion bonuses

To launch your business with the Utility Warehouse, and to qualify for an income for life, all you have to do is gather three active customers. This is the first important step towards ‘residual income’ and the time freedom it brings. One of the many exciting things about our compensation plan is the significant promotion bonuses. These are paid when you achieve promotion to a new status level within a certain time frame.

Infinity payments

Some network marketing opportunities encourage you to build a team, but then don’t pay you for your whole team! We are different. We pay you for every customer in your team. That’s absolutely awesome and could earn you a very serious income indeed.

Other incentives

You will also be eligible for access to the company’s fleet of Porsche Boxsters, all-expenses paid holidays to destinations around the world, cruises, shopping vouchers and cash bonuses.

Step 1 – Qualified Distributor (QD)

Once you have gathered three personal customers you become a Qualified Distributor. This (www.mlmlegal.com) means you are eligible to receive Residual Income on all of your personal customers, for as long as you continue to have a minimum of three personal customers.

So that’s up to 6% of your customers’ spend on utility services; every month, for as long as they remain our customers! In addition, you will also receive Group Residual Income on all your group customers.

Your new career has started and a better lifestyle is on its way!

Step 2 – Team Leader (TL)

A Team Leader must have a minimum of 10 personal customers, and have 3 seperate QD legs. The partners making up these legs may not have been personally sponsored by you (see example 2). You must also have a total of 50 Group Customers, including your personal customers.

As a TL you are eligible to receive a promotion bonus of up to £500.

Step 3 – Senior Team Leader (STL)

To become a Senior Team Leader you must develop your group to have five seperate qualified legs, of which two must be TL legs. You also need a minimum of 15 personal customers and at least 250 group customers (including your own personal customers).

Once you are promoted to STL, you are eligible to receive a promotion bonus of up to £1,000.
