Program: Click Intensity
Review Summary: Sign up to take part in various ‘click for pennies’ tasks that are a total waste of time and then pay insane amounts of money to unlock the full potential of the compensation plan.
Price: Free / $25 / $100,000
Verdict: Borderline Scam
My first impression was that it’s nice to see an mlm company actually trying to leverage the Internet and not just pushing health and wellness rubbish. Unfortunately that was about as good as it got with this company for me.
The further I dug into this the more alarm bells starting going off like the whole “this is super easy and everyone is guaranteed 100% success”
Followed by comparing their opportunity with companies like Apple, Microsoft and Facebook lol…
I was also left trying to work out what on earth the deal was with the whole ‘silver pack’ thing and why we were being asked to by so many of them without even clearly explaining what they are for in the designated training area.
What This Is All About
This company is a platform for sharing an organisation or persons advertising links, it’s formerly known as an advertising exchange according to Tara Mish.
This is much like a traffic exchange only it shares it’s advertisers links via social media, solo ads and other ways to drive traffic to various offers. From an advertisers perspective, there is nothing new about this whatsoever. There are tons of more well established advertising networks for advertisers to use.
Not only that but the whole advertising exchange concept is not my cup of tea.
Because in order for people to make any money at all inside the platform they MUST click on advertisers links, watch their videos and do other mundane tasks. The majority of the time they are not interested in the offer itself, only getting through as many as they can as quickly as possible to make the most money.
Other methods like social media link sharing and solo ads involves being a bit of a spammer in my opinion. You know those annoying spam emails and advertisements you see people in your network posting? That’s what this is.
The Business Opportunity & Compensation Plan Explained
What about from a business opportunity perspective, can you earn decent money promoting this company? No doubt you could make money doing this but it’s no where near the best way to go in my opinion.
The comp plan is very simple which is somewhat refreshing, but in my opinion it’s too simple, it lacks a lot of information and depth. I get why they did this but I think it makes the company appear to be a bit of a backyard operation.
How You Can Earn
#1 Performing Tasks: As a free member you can perform various tasks like watching videos, taking surveys and clicking ads in order to receive a small payment. This is nothing new and there are thousands of other platforms that allow you to do this kind of thing.
Don’t expect to earn much this way as it’s pretty much a total waste of time and I say that about most of these kinds of platforms. As a paid member ($25 or more) you will get more offers than a free member.
#2 Revenue Sharing: This was the part that had me a little baffled since there’s such a lack of specific and detailed information on the website. From my understanding, you buy one $25 ‘silver pack’ which buys you 1000 silver coins. These silver coins can be spent on advertising within their network.
You eventually may get paid up to $5 per ‘silver pack’ as the value of this company increases over the years to come- if it makes it that far. This is a very big IF since there is no way of knowing when you will earn this and if the company will ever increase in value for a sustained period of time.
Personally I wouldn’t be counting on this at all, it’s probably better to think of this as a possible bonus down the track.
#3 Downline Commissions: This aspect of the earnings plan allows you to earn up to 7 levels deep with varying commissions on each level.
You can earn 10% of your direct referrals purchasing (first level) as long as you’ve paid the $25 for one silver pack.
Here’s where things go from bad to worse though…
In order to earn on just the 2nd level, a total of 1% on the purchasing of level 2, you need to personally purchase US$2500 worth of silver packs! That is pretty much unheard of in any mlm company I’ve come across. In order to earn all 7 levels deep you need to have purchased $100,000 worth of these silver packs! Yep…
Tara tells people that on no uncertain terms “one of the ‘core commitments’ to being successful in this company is buying one silver pack every single day until you hit 4000 packs”.
First Year Cost Estimate
This is where I draw up an estimate of what I think it might cost the average rep trying to build a business in a particular company. It is based on my own personal research and opinion so always do your own due diligence before making any decisions.
Joining Fee= $25
Staying Active= $0
Making This Work= $9100 (This is taking full advantage of this as Tara suggests and is necessary to get traffic to recruit new people. It includes buying 1 silver pack each day for a year which comes with advertising credits you would need to use to recruit new reps)
Total $9125 +
This is officially in top 3 most expensive mlm companies I have personally ever come across. The other 2 are well known scams known as ‘The Empower Network’ and ‘MOBE’.
The idea behind companies like this is to get you in the door for free or next to nothing, but in order to make it work and actually make any money there is a ton of purchasing required. The only tangible benefit you are getting from buying these packs is low quality- MAYBE ok traffic to sign people up into the same company.
What I Liked
- You could probably make some money out of this if you have a good amount of email subscribers
- Low entry cost
- The back office is fairly well put together
What I Didn’t Like
- The compensation plan is too simple and lacks a lot of information
- You have to do annoying and mundane tasks each day just to stay qualified
- The cost of unlocking the income levels is absolutely insane
- Not enough detailed information and too much hype/ motivational fluff
- You are investing a ton of money into this to buy low quality traffic, which allows you to qualify and find recruits
- The only real earning potential is with recruiting and this is practically locked for the majority of people
- Not a very lucrative compensation plan
This is a classic mlm scheme that will ultimately fail the majority. The gap between people earning a few pennies here and there and those making a real income is going to be miles apart.
You are essentially paying for low quality traffic to get a 10% commission fee for recruiting people into a half baked opportunity.
Take a look at the costs of getting clicks to your link in order to get referrals:
There is no need to get yourself caught up in some expensive and ‘spam like’ scheme just to get traffic and make commissions I can assure you.
Paid traffic can be good don’t get me wrong, but the best way to get traffic is by getting it for free through the search engines in my opinion. I definitely do not recommend this and I genuinely believe most people are going to waste a lot of time, effort and money with this.
