Global Ad Hits Review: 10 cent micro-Ponzi
There is no information on the Global Ad Hits website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Global Ad Hits website domain (“globaladhits.com”) was registered on the 13th of February, however the domain registration is set to private.
Further research reveals GlobalAdHits has a private Facebook group. Just shy of one hundred members, the group lists two admins; Stevan Krstic and Armin Hasanovic.
It is extremely likely that either or both Krstic and Hasanovic are running GlobalAdHits, with their Facebook profiles suggesting they are based in Europe.
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 GlobalAdHits Product Line
GlobalAdHits has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership with the company itself.
Once signed up, GlobalAdHits affiliates can deposit funds with the company and participate in the GlobalAdHits income opportunity.
Bundled with each deposit are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the GlobalAdHits website itself.
The GlobalAdHits Compensation Plan
The GlobalAdHits compensation plan sees affiliates deposit ten cents at time. These micro-investments are advertised as paying the affiliate who made the investment a 210% ROI (21 cents per position).
This is tracked through a straight-line queue, contained inside a company matrix.
The matrix used is that of an expandable 3×1. A 3×1 matrix has a company position up top, with three positions directly under it.
Those three positions form the first level of the matrix, expanding down an infinite depth (by three) each level, as long as GlobalAdHits affiliates keep investing in new positions.
Positions are filled left to right, with a position maturing when the three positions under it have been filled (via subsequent investment).
GlobalAdHits affiliates are capped at holding 1000 positions at any given time, meaning the maximum amount that can be initially invested is $100.
The minimum deposit amount is $3 (30 positions).
Finally, a 30% referral commission (3 cents) is also paid out on each 10 cent investment made by a personally recruited affiliate.
Affiliate membership with GlobalAdHits is free, however affiliates must invest at least $3 in order to participate in the GlobalAdHits income opportunity.
As such the defacto minimum cost of GlobalAdHits affiliate membership is $3.
At ten cents a pop participating in GlobalAdHits seems pretty pointless, which I suppose is why they’ve gone the minimum deposit $3 route.
Two things in particular to note, the first being that the $3 minimum amount is likely to be advertised as a “small amount to risk” – ignoring the fact that most investors are likely to invest more than the minimum.
Secondly with everything tracked via a matrix and such low-cost positions in play, it’s pretty easy for one affiliate to buy a large block of positions.
Mathematically the first position in the matrix requires three positions under it to be filled, with that amount blowing out in no time as the matrix grows in size.
Again, due to the 10 cent cost of individual positions, remember that one affiliate can easily blow out the matrix by a hundreds of positions.
Ultimately what all of this means is that the standard stall effect of a matrix ROI system is amplified due to the micro-nature of GlobalAdHits investments.
At a much faster rate than you typically see, GlobalAdHits affiliates will hit that glut where there are so many position in the queue that anybody who invests at that point can forget about every seeing a ROI.
The counter to this is a large number of positions are created with each investment, however all this does is push the matrix deeper and deeper, with each level having three times as many positions to fill over the previous.
Remember that the matrix fills left to right, not directly downwards, so it doesn’t take many levels before positions across each matrix level number in the thousands, tens of thousands and then… well, you get the point.
Meanwhile with nothing being marketed to or sold to retail customers, GlobalAdHits is yet another advertising-credits based Ponzi scheme.
The system works on the principle of marketing positions. Marketing positions are ad units, which the user buys and each bought marketing positions brings a total of 210% of the profits.
You invest in positions, those funds are used to pay off existing investors and then you hope enough new suckers jump on board to pay you.
As with all Ponzi schemes, once new affiliate investment dries up, GlobalAdHits will collapse.
Being a matrix-based scheme, at that point anyone with positions still trapped in the GlobalAdHits matrix loses out.
