YoloPros Review: Ten tiers of chain-recruitment & PLR ebooks
The YoloPros website identifies Jay Ahlin and Kai Jacobson as co-founders of the company.
This matches the YoloPros website domain registration, which lists Kai Jacobson as the owner. An address in the US state of Hawaii also provided.
Earlier this year Kai Jacobson was promoting the iCharity Club cash gifting scam on Facebook.
Jacobson also holds an affiliate position in Lifewave. Up until last month this position was named “Kai Jacobson Randy Hood”, it has since been renamed “K & R International”.
Jay Ahlin is based out Nevada and was an affiliate with iWowwe till about 2012.
Earlier this year Ahlin was also promoting iCharity Club on Facebook. Ahlin has also promoted WeShare Crowdfunding, another cash gifting scheme.
Other MLM opportunities Ahlin has promoted include RE24/7/365 (pyramid scheme), EmSquared (Mannatech spinoff), Malibu Mastermind (collapsed investment scheme), YouGetPaidFast (cash gifting), Infinity2Global (Ponzi scheme whose owner is being pursued by the FBI) and Rocket Cash Cycler (pyramid scheme).
Read on for a full review of the YoloPros MLM opportunity.
The YoloPros Product Line
YoloPros has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market YoloPros affiliate membership itself.
Bundled with YoloPros affiliate membership is access to an e-book library and “digital products”.
The YoloPros Compensation Plan
The YoloPros compensation plan sees affiliates sign up and purchase ten digital product packages.
Product Packages range in price from $200 to $1,000 dollars containing hundreds of digital products, covering a wide spectrum of niche markets.
Commissions within the YoloPros compensation plan are earned when affiliates recruit others who do the same.
YoloPros Affiliate Ranks
There are four ranks within the YoloPros compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Affiliate – sign up as a YoloPros affiliate for $219.95
- 1 Star – recruit at least two affiliates and buy into at least Product Package 2
- 2 Star – recruit at least three affiliates, two of which are 1 Star or higher
- 3 Star – recruit four affiliates
- 4 Star – qualification criteria not provided
Note that the qualification page on the YoloPros website appears to be incomplete. 3 Star qualification criteria ends abruptly and 4 Star qualification criteria is not provided.
To qualify for commissions on recruited affiliates, YoloPros affiliates must themselves buy into all ten offered digital product tiers:
- Product Package 1 – $200
- Product Package 2 – $200
- Product Package 3 – $300
- Product Package 4 – $400
- Product Package 5 – $500
- Product Package 6 – $600
- Product Package 7 – $700
- Product Package 8 – $800
- Product Package 9 – $900
- Product Package 10 – $1000
YoloPros affiliates earn a 50% commission when they recruit an affiliate ($100).
These 50% commissions continue to be paid out on subsequent Product Package purchases by personally recruited affiliates.
Residual Recruitment Commissions
Residual commissions in YoloPros are paid out 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.
YoloPros cap payable unilevel levels at four.
Residual commissions paid out as a percentage of commissions generated by affiliates in the unilevel team based on affiliate rank as follows:
- 1 Star – 10% on level 1 (personally recruited affiliates)
- 2 Star – 10% on levels 1 and 2
- 3 Star – 10% on levels 1 and 2 and 20% on level 3
- 4 Star – 10% on levels 1 and 2, 20% on level 3 and 10% on level 4
YoloPros affiliate membership is $19.95 a month.
New affiliates have to buy into product packages to earn commissions. The minimum this costs is $200 (for the first package).
Full participation in the YoloPros compensation plan is $5200 plus $19.95 a month.
YoloPros is essentially an excuse to bundle worthless PLR e-book packages to recruitment commissions.
100% of revenue generated within YoloPros is sourced from recruited affiliates and paid out to the most active recruiters.
The bundled PLR e-books are touted as an income stream (via resale), however this has nothing to do with the YoloPros MLM opportunity.
The only way to make money in YoloPros is to buy into the ten product tiers and recruit others who do the same.
The absence of products being marketed to or sold to retail customers within the YoloPros MLM opportunity makes it a pyramid scheme.
Don’t just take my word for it though, here’s what YoloPros co-founder Jay Ahlin had to say back in 2011:
Today just about ALL of the multi-level marketing programs are scams.
In today’s internet economy, there is simply no need for multi-level marketing or the overpriced products that they sell — meaning that the only thing they are selling are memberships in anticipation that future memberships will be sold in the future, which is the classic definition of a pyramid scheme, and thus securities fraud.
That’s pretty much what Ahlin and Kai Jacobson are doing with YoloPros.
As with all pyramid schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies off so too will payments within the scheme. No new recruits means nobody buying YoloPros’ overpriced PLR e-book garbage, which in turn means no commissions are paid out.
At that point YoloPros collapses, with anyone who hasn’t recouped their monthly fee plus however many tiers they bought into losing out.
