The American Prosperity Systems Compensation Plan is an exciting opportunity that rewards you for selling products, services and advertising and for sponsoring other affiliates who do the same.
Although the opportunity is unlimited, individual results will vary depending on commitment levels and sales skills of each participant as well as performance of advertising campaigns purchased by IBO. Since American Prosperity Systems has recently launched, it lacks enough statistical data to prepare income disclosures. The numbers shown below are estimates pending more detailed survey to be conducted after its first year.
Based on industry standards and company projections, the average annual gross income for IBOs is projected to be anywhere between $500 and $2000. There will certainly be participants who earn less, while others earn a lot more. We’re excited about the American Prosperity Systems Compensation Plan and we’re confident it will provide you with a solid foundation to help you achieve your financial goals.
If income projections were presented to you prior to your enrollment, such projections are not necessarily representative of the income if any, that you can or will earn through your participation in the American Prosperity Systems Compensation Plan. These income projections should not be considered as guarantees or projections of your actual earnings or profits. Success with American Prosperity Systems Group results only from hard work, dedication and leadership.
