COMPLIANCE CORNER

I am a procrastinator.
 
There, I said it! Now you all know the truth. Unless it’s something I truly enjoy or I must do it (cooking dinner!) I tend to put it off. I’d just rather wait until the last minute to do it, until the last minute gets here, and then I wish I’d done it hours before that! Can any of you relate? I know we all have deadlines that we push to the limit!
 
The PlanNet Marketing Policies and Procedures includes lots of deadlines…30 days for this, four months for that, one year for the other thing. Make sure you’re paying attention to your business and don’t let a little harmless procrastinating cost you.
 
Here are a few “deadlines” and “timelines” we ask you to follow:
 
Pay Your Monthly Fee of $19.95. If you aren’t actively paying that $19.95 each month, you could be missing out on commissions! Don’t let money slip through your fingers. Plus, if you don’t pay your monthly fee within 60 days of when it’s due you could also lose your position in the Matrix. Stay active to maximize your return on investment. (P&P Section 2.4)

Tell Us When You Have a Problem. You have 30 days to report an error in commissions, bonuses, Downline Activity Reports, or charges. You must notify PlanNet Marketing in writing within 30 days of the date of the purported error or incident in question. After 30 days, PlanNet Marketing can’t be held responsible for the error. (P&P Section 8.2)

90 Day Refund Policy. I’m not sure WHY anyone would want to cancel and receive a refund, but it does occasionally happen. Please make sure you tell all new Reps when they join PlanNet that in order to get a refund, they must request it within the first 90 days of their enrollment. (P&P Section 8.5)
 
Following Rules After Cancellation. Let’s say you do decide to cancel your Rep position and move on to other business ventures. Please note that you are required to continue abiding by the PlanNet Marketing Policies and Procedures for six months to a year post-cancellation. Yes! That is correct. For six months after canceling you agree not to sell any competing products or services (travel) and for one whole year following cancellation you agree not to directly contact any Rep you did not personally sponsor into PlanNet Marketing. Don’t tell them how much you miss them, don’t offer to babysit their kids, and PLEASE do not tell them about any other business or marketing venture you are pursuing. (P&P Section 5.3.1 & 5.3.2)
 
Becoming a Rep Again. If you ever decide to leave, and then you want to come back – we LOVE that! But please keep in mind that you must reactivate with the same sponsor and in the same position as before. If you choose not to reactivate with the same sponsor, then you must wait a minimum of four (4) calendar months before reactivating under any sponsor of your choosing. (P&P Section 5.13.B)
 
Don’t procrastinate with your business – make sure you’re always on time with the guidelines above.
