Infinite Leverage System Review: $4297 traffic generation
Infinite Leverage System is operated by co-founders Chad Stalvey, Greg Chambers, and Doug Wellens.
Based out of the US state of Florida, the company is run under the Streamlined Marketing Systems, Inc. brand, which Stalvey, Chambers and Wellens launched in 2009.
The earliest record I could find of Stalvey’s involvement in the industry dates back to Liberty League International (personal development and recruitment).
A “Bill Marler”, posting over at the MLM.com forums, claims that Greg Chambers and Doug Wellens were involved in the Reverse Funnel System (used by Wealth Masters International in 2010).
According to Marler, prior to Reverse Funnel System Chambers and Wellens were responsible for Quicklister, a marketing platform used by Global Resorts Network (travel niche). This was in 2007 and marked the beginning of Stalvey, Chambers and Wellens working together.
In 2010 Stalvey, Chambers and Wellens were operating an earlier incarnation of Infinite Leverage System, which was attached to Bon Voyage 1000 (recruitment-based travel opportunity).
Bon Voyage 1000 (now Bon Voyage Elite) collapsed years ago, but I wasn’t able to find any MLM related activity by the trio since Marler’s 2010 forum posting.
Sometime recently they’ve relaunched Infinite Leverage System as a standalone company, which is what this review is based on.
Read on for a full review of the Infinite Leverage System MLM business opportunity.

The Infinite Leverage System compensation plan video does make mention of a training sale, indicating that it might be possible to sell Click Brilliance to qualify for commissions as an affiliate.
The traffic packages the company offers are cost per click, priced as follows:

Traffic packages can be purchased by affiliates or retail customers.
The Infinite Leverage System Compensation Plan
The Infinite Leverage System compensation plan revolves around the recruitment of affiliates and purchase of traffic packages.
Affiliate membership with Infinite Leverage System costs $27 a month (access to Click Brilliance).
$20 of this fee is paid to the affiliate who did the recruiting.
Infinite Leverage System use a perpetual 1-up compensation structure to pay commissions on the purchase of traffic packages by recruited affiliates and retail customers.
This 1-up compensation structure sees an affiliate pass-up commissions on their second, fourth, sixth and every fifth sale thereafter made.
Note that affiliates are pass up, not individual sales.
Commissions are paid out when recruited affiliates purchase traffic packages. There are six packages available, with a purchase required at any given level in order to qualify to receive commissions at that level.
- Basic – $220
- Bronze – $440
- Silver – $660
- Gold – $1097
- Platinum – $2197
- Titanium – $4297
An Infinite Leverage System affiliate earns a commission when someone “coded” to them purchases a package. Every affiliate personally recruited, except the second, fourth, sixth and every fifth thereafter, is personally coded to the affiliate who recruited them.
The affiliates not coded are passed up to their upline.
Note that if the affiliate being passed up purchases a traffic package higher than the upline affiliate has purchased, the affiliates is passed up higher until an affiliate who is qualified at that level is found. The passed up affiliate is then coded to that affiliate at that level irrespective of whether the affiliate who made the sale upgrades at a later date.
Note that only the level passed up remains so, any lower package levels the affiliate who made the sale is qualified for remain with them.
In turn, affiliates recruited must also pass up their second, fourth, sixth and every fifth affiliate thereafter to their upline. An affiliate can also gain coded affiliates if their downlines are not qualified at a certain package level and those below them upgrade to this level.
When these passed up affiliates recruit affiliates of their own, again they must pass up their second, fourth, sixth and every fifth thereafter recruited affiliates.
Note that retail sales follow the same rules as affiliate sales, but obviously do not generate any affiliate pass-ups.
Commissions paid out on the six traffic packages available are as follows:
- Basic – $100
- Bronze – $200
- Silver – $300
- Gold – $500
- Platinum – $1000
- Titanium – $2000
Joining Infinite Leverage System
Basic Infinite Leverage affiliate membership costs $29 a month.
Traffic package qualification is also required to receive commissions on traffic package purchases ($220-$4297).
Training sales are mentioned in the compensation plan video but are not further elaborated on in the video or anywhere on the Infinite Leverage System website.
Retail is possible within the Infinite Leverage System but extremely unlikely.
Due to the layout of the compensation plan, realistically an affiliate will join by paying their $29 a month fee and then a traffic package to qualify to receive commissions when recruited affiliates do the same.
The Infinite Leverage System compensation plan repeatedly urges affiliates to buy in at the Titanium package level ($4297), using commission eligibility and potential loss of commissions due to pass-ups as marketing tools:
All you did to qualify at the Titanium level, was purchase your Titanium package.
This is critically important.
Purchasing your Titanium package makes you eligible to access commissions on all levels of traffic packages.
By purchasing the largest traffic possible … you’ll be putting yourself in the best position to be receiving the highest commission for your efforts.
How you choose to get started does make a difference in this business. You deserve the maximum compensation.
In the compensation plan video, those who decide to purchase the Titanium package are lauded as “big thinkers” who “see the big picture”. At no time are the merits of the traffic they are purchasing used to market the $4297 package.
In any event, what usually happens in lead generation MLM opportunities is that the lead generation platform is simply used to generate leads for the attached income opportunity itself.
Training sales are briefly mentioned in the compensation plan video but not elaborated on. I believe this is due to the fact that realistically retail in Infinite Leverage System is not viable.
Instead, you’re going to find that affiliates themselves are qualifying via a $29 a month participation fee and package purchase.
If the majority of package purchases are made by affiliates, effectively Infinite Leverage System operates as a pyramid scheme.
Affiliates buy in for $29 a month, which is directly tied to a $20 commission paid to the affiliate who recruited them.
Then, as long as this $29 a month fee is paid, an affiliate can purchase a package at one of six offered levels, which qualifies them to earn commissions when recruited affiliates below them purchase packages at the same or lower levels.
This is entirely possible with no sales to retail customers taking place. And let’s face it, is in all probability what is going to take place inside the opportunity.
The compensation plan completely ignoring retail sales and commissions is evidence enough of that.
Further evidence of a lack of retail viability is the fact that the traffic packages hover at around a 45% markup, for no other reason then to pay commissions participants in the income opportunity.
Surely as a retail customer I can get better bang for my buck?
Not unlike BurnLounge, which offered multi-tiered music packages in place of traffic packages, affiliates will buy into Infinite Leverage System and then set about recruiting affiliates under them.
Once recruitment dies down, those at the bottom of the scheme will complain about having spent potentially thousands of dollars for no gain and then stop paying their monthly membership fees.
If those above them cannot recruit new participants into the scheme, they too will eventually stop paying their monthly $29 a month fee. Eventually this will trickle up far enough the company-wide genealogy and trigger a collapse.
Oh, and forget about refunds:
There is a strict no refund / return policy, which begins at the time of purchase.
BurnLounge, operating along the same lines as Infinite Leverage System was shut down in 2007 for being a pyramid scheme.
Affiliates joined BurnLounge and paid an additional fee to become a mogul. In Infinite Leverage System this is the equivalent of signing up for $29 and purchasing a Titanium or lower package.
This qualified said affiliates to earn commissions by recruiting other Mogul package purchasing affiliates. In Infinite Leverage System this is the equivalent of recruiting traffic package purchasing affiliates (which they purchase to qualify on the recruitment of subsequent traffic package purchasing affiliates).
Mogul package sales drove 92.6% of BurnLounge’s revenue in 2006, its one full year of operation, while music sales during the same year only amounted to 4.9% of revenue.
Replace “music sales” with “retail traffic package sales” in Infinite Leverage System… and well, you can see where this is likely to wind up if it takes off.
I would think that MOST direct sales companies, if they are marketing themselves as a business system, would have tools like this already built in. Coming up on 2015, If they dont, they SHOULD.
It pains me a little to see legitimate companies leave their reps hanging and not providing them all the viable options (in house) to market their products or worse, providing them, and not properly training them on how to use them.
Is the traffic good quality? How many clicks does one get for each level so to speak?
If the traffic is good quality this sounds like a great idea, if the traffic is no quality it seems to be just a pyramid with a traffic frauduct.
A pyramid scheme exists irrespective of what is attached to it.
A pyramid scheme is defined by a business model and flow of money, not whether or not a traffic source is legit.
Nice review — thank you.
It’s a pyramid scheme if people are paying for a position in the pyramid. Often, “product” is merely camouflage for the pyramid.
The acid test is: Would you pay for the product without the opportunity? In this case it is pretty clear. Would you pay $1.29 per click for unknown quality?
In regards to the “acid test”, ILS is owned by CPC brokers which most 6 and 7-figure earners online have used to grow their businesses.
So the quality of this $1.29 click is and always has been top notch. (I am not an affiliate for ILS).
