Max Market Pro Review: Investing and recruitment
The usual deal with the MLM investment opportunities that have been popping up all over the place of late is that marketing is left up to company members.
Seeking to combine the required marketing aspect of a MLM investment scheme (no new members investments = no ROIs), Max Market Pro combines replicated capture pages and hosting with a bonus point investment scheme.
Read on for a full review of the Max Market Pro MLM opportunity.
The Max Market Pro website names three founders:
- Joseph de Yesu – Executive Vice President of Marketing
- Carl Handers – President & CEO
- Julia Smith – Executive Vice President of Sales
Joseph de Yesu and Carl Handers don’t have any track record online (MLM or otherwise) and Julia Smith is too generic of a name.
I’d be willing to give Max Market Pro the benefit of the doubt however their domain registration information is bogus.
Registrant: Max Market Pro
RT, VG 00000
Virgin Islands (British)
Administrative Contact: Max MarketPro
nil, Arizona 54321
Apart from the email address and possible the company being registered in the British Virgin Islands (a known tax-haven), the rest of the information appears fake.
Given this and the lack of information available on Max Market Pro, I highly suspect the names provided of the company’s founders are fake.
This would mean that all of the supplied information about the company is bogus and lends little credibility to the company or the MLM opportunity its pushing.
The Max Market Pro Product Line
Max Market Pro have no products available at a retail level. Those wishing to purchase anything from Max Market Pro must first sign up as a member.
The Max Market Pro website mentions ‘landing pages’ and the compensation plan ‘website and hosting packages’. From the looks of it the Max Market Pro product appears to be replicated capture pages.
The going price for each replicated capture page and hosting package appears to be $9 a month paid for 3 months at a time ($27).
The Max Market Pro Compensation Plan
The Max Market Pro compensation plan rewards members for investing money into a ‘bonus point’ investment scheme, as well as for recruiting members (paying out each time a recruited member makes a new investment).
When a Max Market Pro member purchases a capture page and hosting package, the company places a portion of the sales price into a global pool that is then paid out to existing members.
Existing members are given one share in the profit pool each time they purchase a capture page and hosting package.
Max Market Pro do not specify whether or not points expire after a certain amount of time or after they have generated a specific amount of money via the pool.
In addition to the bonus points investment scheme, Max Market Pro pay out unilevel commissions down 20 levels.
When a Max Market Pro member recruits a new member they are placed into a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure means that each new member is placed directly underneath the recruiting member, forming their level 1.
Level 2 is composed of any members the directly recruited members refer, and level 3 is any members they recruit and so on and so forth.
Each time any member in a Max Power Pro’s unilevel team makes a web hosting and capture page purchase, the company pays out 50c.
This 50c commission is paid down 20 generations.
Joining Max Power Pro
Membership to Max Power Pro is free however to earn a commission members need to recruit new members and/or purchase a capture page and hosting package.
Quite obviously, the idea behind Max Power Pro is to sign up, purchase a hosting package and use the capture page to recruit new members to the company.
The Bonus Points system pretty much acts as an investment scheme. Members make an investment with each package purchase and the company then pays out a return everytime a new or existing member invests more money into the system (via package purchases).
100% of the returns are paid out of new money being injected into the scheme and the more money a member invests into the scheme, the greater their return.
Or in other words, it’s a Ponzi scheme.
The unilevel commissions component of the Max Market Pro compensation plan is a straight up pyramid scheme. The more people recruited, the more money you make… provided of course they are investing into the bonus points scheme.
Anonymous owners possible operating a company out of the British Virgin Islands with a dodgy as hell compensation plan…?
Oh and there’s also this gem, buried away in the Max Market Pro Terms and conditions:
We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the site, including any of the site’s features, at any time with or without notice to you.
We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right.
If that’s not as ‘get out of jail free’ Ponzi collapse card attempt then I don’t know what is.
As far as I can tell there’s not even one remotely legitimate aspect to the Max Market Pro MLM opportunity. Run for the hills!
