Cycler Buzz Review: $10 cycler that can’t stall?
There is no information on the Cycler Buzz website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Cycler Buzz website domain (“cyclerbuzz.com”) was registered on the 19th of November 2013, however the domain registration is set to private.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
The Cycler Buzz Product Line
Cycler Buzz has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership to the opportunity itself.
Once an affiliate has joined the company, they are then able to invest in $10 “ad packages”. Bundled with each ad package are a series of advertising credits, which affiliates can use to display advertising on the Cycler Buzz website.
The Cycler Buzz Compensation Plan
The Cycler Buzz compensation plan revolves around affiliates investing in $10 positions. These positions are added to a straight-line cycler, which functions as a single-line queue.
The position at the top of the queue pays out a gradual ROI as new investment is made at the bottom of the queue, capping out at a 150% ROI ($15).
When this happens, the top investment position cycles out and all positions move up in the queue, upon which the process repeats itself again.
If no new position investments are made within a 48 hour period or the queue exceeds a 72 hour lifespan, Cycler Buzz “bursts” the queue and creates a revenue-sharing position for each investment.
From here each position is paid 2% until the 150% promised ROI is reached.
In the meantime a new cycler queue is created, with affiliates once again able to invest in $10 positions in the queue. This new queue is subject to the same 48/72 hour behavioural parameters as the one before it.
In a nutshell, either every 48 or 72 hours, Cycler Buzz creates a new queue and dumps all the old cycler queue positions into a separate revenue-sharing scheme.
Referral commissions are paid out on all investments made by affiliates, payable down three levels of recruitment:
- level 1 (personal recruits) – 6%
- level 2 – 4%
- level 3 – 2%
Note that Cycler Buzz withholds a mandatory 30% of all commissions paid out, which affiliates must use to invest in additional ad packages.
Joining Cycler Buzz
Affiliate membership to Cycler Buzz is free, however affiliates must invest in ad packages if they wish to withdraw any commissions.
Despite the obvious investment nature of the scheme, Cycler Buzz seem to be a little confused as to the particulars of their business model. Taken from the Cycler Buzz FAQ,
CyclerBuzz is an exciting website for your advertising. We consider our high traffic site one of the best resources for marketers.
CyclerBuzz.com is NOT an investment program. Please do NOT treat it as such.
Yet a quick visit to the schemes website reveals the opportunity openly advertising itself as an investment scheme:
Regardless, with no retailable products or services, daily ROIs and 100% of the ROI revenue sourced from new affiliate investment, Cycler Buzz quite obviously functions as a Ponzi investment scheme.
Amusingly, Cycler Buzz claims to be the world’s first “No Risk, No Loss!!! Guaranteed Earnings” Ponzi scheme.
Most other cycler stall after a while but with cyclerbuzz, this wont happen! With CyclerBuzz, in the worst case scenario where your positions do not cycle after 48hrs, then there is nothing to worry about, your uncycled position will be moved into the Daily Payer plan and you will earn 2% daily for 75 days to a total of 150%.
This makes it a WIN-WIN situation for you !
The logic-fail here is that the scheme assumes affiliates will continue to invest indefinitely in new cycler positions every 72 hours.
The meta theory behind the scheme is that affiliates will figure the cycler will take too long to cycle their position after 72 hours or so, at which point they scrap the queue and make a new one.
Once the queue is scrapped, they’ll have affiliates scrambling to invest in new $10 positions, which will then permit the scheme to pay out those 2% daily ROIs they guarantee on the previous cycler commissions.
Ultimately however Cycler Buzz still operates on the principle of paying out 150% of what affiliates put into it. That’s not sustainable, regardless of how they shuffle their affiliate’s money around.
Once affiliates stop investing in $10 positions, guarantee or no guarantee the scheme will have no money to pay out its promised 2% a day.
What happens then?
