PowerPost Profits Review: $27 gifting or $32 recruitment
There is no information on the PowerPost Profits website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The PowerPost Profits website domain was registered on the 2nd of June 2015, however the domain registration is set to private.
A marketing video on the PowerPost Profits is narrated by Johnny Ganoza. The video itself is hosted on a YouTube channel “WorkWithJohnnyG”.
Ganoza is also currently promoting PowerPost Profits on Facebook, suggesting he is the owner of the company.
Why this information is not disclosed on the PowerPost Profits website is unclear.
Johnny Ganoza (right) first popped up on BehindMLM’s radar as the admin of Xtreme Pro System.
The shutdown of Achieve Community was cited as a primary reason for Ganoza shutting down the Ponzi side of Xtreme Pro System.
Today Xtreme Pro System advertises a “blogging system”, which affiliates can earn $5 per sale of.
BehindMLM also recently reviewed the Average Joe Profit System, another of Ganoza’s schemes ($5 Ponzi gifting hybrid).
Read on for a full review of the PowerPost Profits MLM business opportunity.
The PowerPost Profits Product Line
PowerPost Profits has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market PowerPost Profits affiliate membership itself ($27 or $32 a month).
Bundled with PowerPost Profits affiliate membership is access to a Facebook auto-poster.
The PowerPost Profits Compensation Plan
The PowerPost Profits compensation plan is best explained by breaking it down into its two components:
$27 a month affiliates
PowerPost Profits affiliates who pay $27 a month receive a $27 a month payment from any $27 a month affiliates they recruit.
These payments are made through Paypal each month, with PowerPost Profits taking a $6 fee out of every payment.
$32 a month affiliates
PowerPost Profits affiliates who pay $32 a month are paid to recruit other affiliates who do the same.
These commissions are paid out using a 3×3 matrix compensation structure.
A 3×3 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them (level 1):
Level 2 of the matrix is generated by splitting the first level positions into another three positions each. The third and final level of the matrix is generated by splitting level 2 positions in the same manner.
Commissions are paid out as positions in the matrix are filled, with positions filled via the direct and indirect recruitment of PowerPost Profits affiliates.
How much of a commission is paid out is determined by what level of the matrix a position is filled:
- level 1 (3 positions) – $10 per position ($30)
- level 2 (9 positions) – $5 per position ($45)
- level 3 (27 positions) – $8.50 per position ($229.50)
Once an affiliate has filed their matrix, they are placed in another 3×3 matrix and the process begins again.
Each monthly $32 fee generates a new matrix position, which is placed within an existing matrix.
Joining PowerPost Profits
Affiliate membership with PowerPost Profits is $27 a month for Paypal commissions or $32 a month for matrix commissions.
With nothing being marketed or sold to retail customers, PowerPost Profits operate a closed-loop system where affiliates are paid to recruit affiliates.
At the $27 level, you’re looking at a cash gifting scheme, with PowerPost Profits taking $6 out of every payment.
Affiliates pay $27 a month to qualify to receive $27 payments from those who join after them. These payments are monthly, with nothing being marketed or sold to retail customers.
Technically you could argue the $6 “admin fee” constitutes payment for the Facebook auto-poster, but then at 22% of the monthly fee paid, that’s a whopping 78% of the fee paid going into compensation.
Clearly the admin fee is secondary to the monthly gifting payments between PowerPost Profits affiliates.
At the $32 a month level, you’re looking at straight-up affiliate recruitment.
You pay your $32 a month for matrix positions, with commissions paid when subsequently recruited affiliates do the same.
Again, nothing is being marketed to or sold to retail customers.
Both components of the PowerPost Profits compensation plan see commissions tied to the recruitment of affiliates, which means when recruitment slows down so too will commission payouts.
At the $27 a month level you’re looking at those at the bottom of the payouts earning nothing, which means they’ll stop paying their $27 a month.
At the $32 a month level matrix commissions will take longer and longer, with affiliates still required to meet their $32 a month fee obligation.
Once enough affiliates decide it’s not worth it and stop paying, PowerPost Profits collapses.
