Talk Fusion Review
What is Talk Fusion?
Talk Fusion is a multi-level marketing company that focuses on selling video communication products. Video communication products include video emails, video newsletters, live meetings and video chat. Obviously, video chat can be done through free apps like Skype, but you might not be able to send video emails for free. I must say that video emails will stand out from normal text emails for sure.
The founder and CEO of this company is Bob Reina. This company was founded in the year 2007. It has been around for more than a decade, which increases my confidence in this company. Initially, this company started with the aim of revolutionizing email marketing, and other products were developed later
In this review, I will help you decide if this company is worth joining or not. This review is not biased as I am not going to promote this company in this review.
How does Talk Fusion work?
Let us look at the ways of earning money through this company.
Fast Start Bonus: You are paid 10% commission when your personally enrolled customer or associate purchases a product package. In simple words, you are paid 10% of the price of the product when you make a sale. This means that you can earn from anywhere between $10 to $150 per sale. Obviously, the commission percentage is not high when compared to other MLM companies.
Team Commissions: You will have to build two teams: one on your right and one on your left. When you start recruiting people, then the first two people will be placed in different teams. When you make two sales, then you will become a Team Builder and qualify to earn Team Commissions.
The point value assigned to each product is called Sales Volume. Product sales and monthly plan payments generate Sales Volume. The Sales Volume generated by your team will be used to determine your earnings. You earn Team Commissions on the Sales Volume of your lesser volume team. For example, if your right team has 1,000 Sales Volume and your left team has 2,000 Sales Volume, then you will earn on the Sales Volume of your right team.
In the beginning, you will earn 10% Team Commissions on your lesser volume team. You can earn as much as 20% Team Commissions. You have to meet just one of two requirements to double your commissions. When your team generates 2,000 Group Sales Volume in a week, then you will qualify for the 2 Star rank and double your commissions. The second option is to generate 400 Personal Sales Volume (PSV) in both teams and 25 monthly PSV in both teams. Personal Sales Volume is the Sales Volume generated by your personal product sales. You can earn Team Commissions up to unlimited levels, so the earning potential is really high.
Mega Matching Bonuses: You need to qualify for the rank of Team Leader to earn Mega Matching Bonuses. You can become a Team Leader by teaching two personally sponsored associates to build their left and right team for becoming Team Builders. As soon as they become Team Builders, you will become a Team Leader.
Mega Matching Bonuses pay you a percentage of the Team Commissions earned by your personally sponsored associates. You can earn these bonuses up to 10 generations depending on your rank. You can earn these bonuses in the range of 2.5% to 10%. These bonuses can allow you to earn a lot of money if you manage to build an active team and advance in the ranks.
Mercedes Car Bonus: When you are able to maintain the rank of Diamond or higher for four consecutive weeks, then you become eligible to earn the car bonus. You will be paid $1,000 per month through this bonus. You can only lease or buy a specific model of Mercedes through this bonus.
There are other benefits like Five Star vacations and Rolex watches. The compensation plan is clearly very beneficial if you are able to ensure that your team keeps growing. I am sure that most people who are making a lot of money are doing it because of their team and not because of their product sales.
How much does it cost to join?
You have to choose from the following packages to join.
Video Email Only: $99 one-time and $10 per month
Video Suite: $249 one-time and $25 per month
Pro: $1,499 one-time and $50 per month
These are the same packages that are available to customers. The distinction between an associate and a customer is important, but this company fails to differentiate the two here by offering the same packages to both.
How much can I earn?
The company has provided their Income Disclosure Statement for the year 2018, and I commend them for it. Not many companies provide their Income Disclosure Statement. Unfortunately, the Income Disclosure Statement shows that most people fail in this business. 58.90% of associates made no money through the compensation plan. This means that they actually lost the money that they spent on this business.
14.04% people earned in the range of $0.01-$50. 15.09% people earned in the range of $50.01-$250. A little less than 90% people earned less than $250 in the year 2018 through this company. So, the earning potential is really low for most people. If you choose an expensive package, then you are almost certain to lose money. Even the cheaper packages can lead to losses.
Obviously, there are a few people who made $100,000 or more in the year 2018, but they are very rare. I am sure that they did it by building a big team and encouraging people in their team to keep recruiting. I don’t think that you can earn so much by selling the products. One more important fact to remember is that most people quit within their first year. So, the failure rate is really high.
Are there any complaints?
Yes, I have listed some complaints below.
The hardest part was finding new people all the time and always looking for potential prospects in close circles.
You are not trained to sell the products. You are trained to recruit people.
Talk Fusion has elements of a pyramid scheme, so I don’t know if it is legit for sure. They have been around for more than a decade, and their products do work. A lawsuit has been filed against them for operating a pyramid scheme. We will see how it turns out in the end. Obviously, I don’t recommend joining this company. Good luck.
