Hits Monkey Review: Cash gifting with free website traffic
There is no information on the Hits Monkey website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Hits Monkey website domain (“hitsmonkey.com”) was privately registered on November 4th, 2016.
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 Hits Monkey Product Line
Hits Monkey has no retailable products or services attached to their MLM opportunity.
The company offers free traffic and paid access to an autoresponder, neither of which are commissionable through the Hits Monkey compensation plan.
The Hits Monkey Compensation Plan
Hits Monkey affiliates gift bitcoin to each other. These payments are tracked via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Hits Monkey cap payable unilevel levels at six.
A Hits Monkey affiliate signs up and gifts bitcoin to six affiliates above them in the company-wide unilevel.
Specific payment amounts are calculated in bitcoin based on USD target amounts as follows:
- gift about $8 USD in BTC to the affiliate who recruited you
- gift about $10 USD in BTC to your fourth upline
- gift about $5 USD in BTC to your fifth upline
- gift about $2 USD in BTC to your sixth upline
A fourth upline is an affiliate three levels up from the affiliate who recruited you (the affiliate who recruited you is your first upline).
A fifth upline is the affiliate who recruited your fourth upline and so on and so forth.
Full payment of about $25 (referred to as “going pro”) qualifies a Hits Monkey affiliate to receive gifting payments from their downline.
These payments are received using the same rules as an affiliate pays their upline when they sign up.
If a Hits Monkey affiliate hasn’t paid their upline, gifting payments from affiliates they’ve recruited are passed up.
Joining Hits Monkey
Hits Monkey affiliate membership is free, however participation in the income opportunity costs approximately $25 in bitcoin.
Hits Monkey lures potential affiliates with the free offer of website traffic (which is just other affiliates clicking on links to provided sites).
This however has nothing to do with the MLM side of the business, through which Hits Monkey affiliates pay each other.
Hits Monkey affiliates can also purchase access to an autoresponder in their backoffice, which again has nothing to do with the MLM opportunity.
Affiliates paying affiliates in MLM is cash gifting no matter what its attached to. A pyramid element also exists, as all cash gifting schemes require a constant source of new participants to stay afloat.
Typically in pass-up gifting schemes it’s the admin who makes off with the majority of deposited funds, as they sit at the top of the pass-up chain (through one or more preloaded positions).
Once affiliate recruitment in Hits Monkey dies down, so too will gifting payments within the scheme.
This will prompt a collapse, resulting in the majority of Hits Monkey affiliates who have gifted in losing money.
The use of bitcoin distributed to at least four recipients per Hits Monkey affiliate recruited means victim recovery of funds is slim to none.
