Default Marketing Referal Idea

Like so many businesses, December is my hottest month for sales. I'm thinking about soliciting a marketing campaign that opens up referal fees to the public. Anyone that either refers someone that joins or joins themselves.

The referal schedule looks like this:
$9,995 (Level IV) I will pay $1000 referal fee;
$5,000 (Level III) I will pay $500 referal fee;
$2,000 (Level II) I will pay $100 referal fee;
$1000 (Level I) I will pay $50 referal fee.

I don't know of anyone that is providing this sort of compensation to non-company representatives. This offer would not only be open to the public, but for profressional recruiters and marketing agencies.

What do you think?

5 to !0% commission isn't an attraction to me personally. For example with advertising a 15% agency fee is common and accepted within the industry. Often that is used, but at times a starting point.

It concerns me about how would someone get paid for this. What are the standards for payouts?

you consider a sliding scale for volum sales, and a 25% first time first sale,

That would be a great plan if you would pay a little more.
