MLM Hits Review: $6 chain-recruitment scheme
There is no information on the MLM Hits website indicating who owns or runs the company.
The MLM Hits website domain (“mlmhits.com”) was first registered on the 6th of November, 2014. The registration was last updated on the 23rd of August, 2015, suggesting this is when the current owner(s) acquired it.
Unfortunately the MLM Hits 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 MLM Hits Product Line
MLM Hits has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market MLM Hits affiliate membership itself.
Bundled with MLM Hits affiliate membership are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the MLM Hits website.
The MLM Hits Compensation Plan
The MLM Hits compensation plan sees affiliates pay $6 to qualify to earn commissions.
Commissions are paid out when they recruit others who do the same, 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.
Commissions are paid as affiliates are directly and indirectly recruited, with MLM Hits paying $1 per affiliate placed within an affiliate’s unilevel team.
Joining MLM Hits
Affiliate membership with MLM Hits is tied to the purchase of a $6 matrix position.
Free MLM Hits affiliate membership is available, but has nothing to do with the offered MLM opportunity.
With nothing being marketed to or sold to retail customers, MLM Hits is simply an exercise in paying affiliates to recruit new affiliates.
This is otherwise known as chain-recruitment, which in MLM constitutes a pyramid scheme.
The MLM Hits website appears to be particularly poorly made, with this likely intended to be a short-term scheme.
As with all such schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies down, commissions paid out within MLM Hits will slow down.
Eventually recruitment will die off altogether, at which point MLM Hits will have stalled and collapsed.
Mathematically the majority of participants in pyramid schemes are guaranteed to lose money. Those who get in early make off with most of the money, everybody else loses out.
Update 5th March 2016 – Following a series of back and forth (see discussion in the comments below), admin Valentin Calineanu has announced he’s abandoned MLM Hit’s compensation plan.
Paid MLM Hits affiliate membership is now $4, with affiliates receiving $2 per paid affiliate they recruit (single-level commissions).
