Tiny10 Review: A “member get member program”?
There is no information on the Tiny10 website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Tiny10 website domain (“tiny10.com”) was registered on the 18th of August 2014, however the domain registration is set to private.
An address in Singapore is provided on the Tiny10 website, however no street number is provided so the address is rather useless (read: fake).
As always, if a 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 Tiny10 Product Line
Tiny10 has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership to the company itself ($10).
The Tiny10 Compensation Plan
The Tiny10 compensation plan revolves around affiliates purchasing $10 matrix positions.
Tiny10 use a 4×11 matrix compensation structure.
A 4×11 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with four positions directly under them (level 1):
In turn, these four positions branch out into another four position each (level 2) and so on and so forth down a total of eleven levels.
Each filled position in a matrix represents a recruited affiliate who has purchased a $10 matrix position.
Commissions are paid out on filled matrix positions, with how much is paid out determined by what level a filled position is on:
- level 1 – 60% (60 cents)
- levels 2 to 11 – 3% (30 cents)
Commissions are paid once per filled position.
Once an affiliate fills their matrix, their position is terminated and another must be purchased ($10).
Affiliate membership with Tiny10 is $10. Multiple matrix positions will cost add an additional $10 per position purchased.
Each members of Tiny10 will earn commissions up to 11 levels for referring his/her friends to Tiny10.
With not even so much as an irrelevant product to foster the suggestion of pseudo legitimacy, Tiny10 is as obvious a pyramid scheme as they come.
Affiliates buy in for $10 and are then rewarded directly based on their recruitment efforts and that of those they recruit.
No products are sold to retail customers and all commissions are subject to the recruitment of affiliates and their purchase of matrix positions.
As with all pyramid schemes, once recruitment slows down the scheme collapses. In the case of Tiny10, this collapse will present itself by way of affiliate matrices stalling.
The terminating of positions upon reaching level 12 is a bit of a quirk.
A 4×11 matrix has 5.59 million positions to fill. Let’s face it, nobody, not even the admin with stacked positions at the top of matrix, is going to get anywhere close to filling that.
