tbm-revolution-logoThere is no information on the TBM Revolution website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The TBM Revolution website domain (“tbmrevolution.com”) was registered on the 11th of March 2015, however the domain registration is set to private.

At the time of publication, Alexa estimates that Russia is the source of approximately 50% of all traffic to the TBM Revolution website.

The TBM Revolution website defaults to Italian, with English and Italian the only offered languages. Italy is also the third-largest source of traffic to the TBM Revolution website, coming in at 12%.

Given this, it’s highly probably that TBM Revolution is being out of either Russia or Italy.

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 TBM Revolution Product Line

TBM Revolution has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market TBM Revolution affiliate membership itself.

TBM Revolution affiliate membership purportedly provides access to an e-commerce discount platform.

The TBM Revolution Compensation Plan

The TBM Revolution compensation plan sees affiliates pay a monthly membership fee, with commissions paid out when they recruit others who do the same.

  • Bronze – €10 EUR a month
  • Silver – €20 EUR a month
  • Gold – €40 EUR a month
  • Platinum – €80 EUR a month

Commissions are paid via a 3×8 matrix, which created three positions below an affiliate’s position at the top of the matrix:


These initial three positions form the first level of the matrix, with the second level generated by splitting each of the first three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).

The third level of the matrix is generated by splitting the second level positions into another three positions each (27 positions).

In this manner all eight levels of the matrix are generated, with a complete 3×8 matrix housing 9840 positions.

Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of new affiliates. How much of a commission is paid out is determined by what level of the matrix a position is filled:

  • Bronze – €1.70 per affiliate recruited on level 1, €1.4 EUR on level 2, €1.10 EUR on level 3, €0.70 EUR on level 4, €50 EUR on levl 5, €0.90 EUR on level 6, €1.20 EUR on level 7 and €1.50 EUR on level 8
  • Silver – €3.40 EUR per affiliate recruited on level 1, €2.8 EUR on level 2, €2.20 EUR on level 3, €1.40 EUR on level 4, €1 EUR on level 5, €1.8 EUR on level 6, €2.4 EUR on level 7 and €3 EUR on level 8
  • Gold – €6.8 EUR per affiliate recruited on level 1, €5.60 EUR on level 2, €4.40 EUR on level 3, €2.80 EUR on level 4, €2 EUR on level 5, €3.60 EUR on level 6, €4.8 EUR on level 7 and €6 EUR on level 8
  • Platinum – €13.33 EUR per affiliate recruited on level 1, €11.2 EUR on level 2, €8.8 EUR on level 3, €5.60 EUR on level 4, €4 EUR on level 5, €7.2 EUR on level 6, €9.6 EUR on level 7 and €12 EUR on level 8

What isn’t clear is whether these are four separate matrices, or if payouts are made on the one matrix based on how much a recruited affiliate spends on their membership.

Joining TBM Revolution

Affiliate membership with TBM Revolution is €10 EUR to €80 EUR a month:

  • Bronze – €10 EUR a month
  • Silver – €20 EUR a month
  • Gold – €40 EUR a month
  • Platinum – €80 EUR a month

The primary difference between the membership levels is income potential through the TBM Revolution compensation plan.


Access to discounts or discounts themselves are not a viable product in MLM. Reason being that a discount isn’t a product in and of itself.

When combined with a lack of retail, TBM Revolution deteriorates into a simple four-tier recruitment scheme.

Affiliates buy in for €10 to €80 EUR a month, with commissions paid when they recruit others who do the same.

Nothing is marketed to or sold to retail customers, with all commissions paid out tied to affiliate recruitment.

Once recruitment of new TBM Revolution affiliates slows down, those at the bottom of the scheme will find themselves unable to earn commissions.

This will see them stop paying their monthly affiliate fee, which means those above them will stop getting paid. If new affiliates are unable to recruited, they too will stop paying their monthly fee.

Over time this effect trickles slowly up the company-wide genealogy, with enough affiliates ceasing to pay their monthly fees triggering an inevitable collapse.

At that point those who haven’t recouped their affiliate membership fees via recruitment, lose out.

Mathematically, in order for a few TBM Revolution affiliates at the top of the company-wide matrix to make money, the majority of affiliates must lose out.
