Traffic Shout Review – Ponzi Scheme – MLM Scam

Website & Company Information

The web domain of the company was privately registered on the 20th of April 2019 and was later updated on 2020–04–09. We could not find any information about the owner or the team of the company.

In an attempt to look legitimate, the company has provided a PO BOX address on its website.

At the time of writing this article, Alexa cites Bangladesh as the top traffic source contributing to a whopping 71.5% traffic share. It is highly likely that the owner of the company is based out of Bangladesh.

This company is not transparent enough about their team, can you expect transparency while they pay you back the returns?

Traffic Shout’s Products

The company offers online traffic services related to :

  • CPC (Pay per Click)
  • CPM
  • Solo Ads
  • Banner Ads
  • Text Message Ads

But the company does have any retail option. A retail option is something that can be purchased without joining any affiliate program.

The company also doesn’t have any retail line to speak of, and they are serving clients from the U.S and Canada, which is illegal for MLM companies. All the MLM companies must provide a retail option if they are serving clients in the U.S and Canada.

Traffic Shout’s Compensation Plan

The company’s affiliate members buy positions in a six-tier 4 x 7 matrix cycler.

There are a total of six Matrix compensation plans that you can join and make money with, below is the breakdown:

  • Silver Matrix — To get started, the minimum investment is $110
  • Gold Matrix — To get started, the minimum investment is $550

About the 4×7 matrix:

In a 4×7 matrix, the affiliate is placed on top of the matrix with four positions under them.

  • The 1st level of the matrix is formed by these seven positions.
  • The 2nd level is generated by splitting those four positions into the next four positions — 16 total.
  • Levels 3 to 7 of the matrix are then generated in the same way, with each new level housing four times as many positions as the preceding level.
  • And when new and existing Traffic Shout affiliate purchase positions (as per the tier prices above), the positions in the matrix are filled.

Commissions are then paid out as a percentage of position purchases. Percentages per level are as follows:

  • level 1– receive a 5% commission
  • levels 2 and 3–receive a 4% commission
  • levels 4 to 7–receive a 3% commission

Referral Commissions

Affiliates receive a commission of 25% on matrix positions purchases by direct recruits.

Matching Bonus

The company also pays a 5% Matching Bonus on matrix commissions earned by personally recruited affiliates.

Star Club bonuses are paid to affiliates whenever their downlines purchase matrix positions:

  • generate a downline of 50 direct or indirect recruits (combined) and get a 2% Star Club Bonus

Diamond Club Bonus

Whenever an affiliate generates a downline of 1000 direct and indirect recruits, he becomes a ‘5-star’ affiliate and enjoys the following bonuses:

  • If you have one 5 Star affiliate in your downline and then you will receive an additional 1% Diamond Club Bonus
  • If you have two 5 Star affiliate in your downline and then you will receive an additional 2% Diamond Club Bonus

  • fill a Silver matrix and get $20,000
  • fill a Gold matrix and get $100,000
  • fill a Diamond matrix and get $500,000

Joining Traffic Shout

Joining Traffic Shout requires one to invest in at least one matrix tier position.

Conclusion

Traffic Shout is running a classic pyramid scheme under the guise of advertising service.

The maths is simple — there is a fee to join the company, and then you earn money through marketing your referral link. People are not interested in their so-called traffic services, but their lucrative affiliate program.

An old video on youtube shows that the company was operating as a cryptocurrency faucet until late 2019.

There are some legitimate crypto faucets out there that reward tiny amount of valuable cryptos like ETH, BTC, but here, Traffic Shout was rewarding ZORIX coin, which is useless and valueless.

Talking about the matrix scheme, it is just a matter of time when new investments (cycle purchases) stop coming in, and the whole system collapses.
