How to promote the products
Exitus Elite members are taught a variety of internet marketing strategies by the company. So most members promote their products through social media and use of the internet.
The Compensation Plan
The Exitus Elite compensation plan is actually a network marketing one up compensation plan.
NOTE: A network marketing One Up Compensation Plan is a compensation plan in which an affiliate member must pass up the first person they refer to their sponsor. The person passed up is their qualifying referral. Example: Members A, B, and C sign up. A signs up under the admin. B signs up under A and is passed up to the admin. B becomes A’s qualifying referral. C signs up under A and becomes A’s first leg in their downline. The first person that C signs up will then be passed up to A. It is a popular plan among affiliate marketing companies selling digital products.
You must make one Qualification Sale to be eligible to earn and receive commissions with the Exitus Elite Compensation Plan.
Every additional direct sale that you make from that point forward starts an additional payline for you.
So Can I Make Money With This Opportunity?
YES and NO!
I say Yes if you can effectively recruit others into the company and persuade them to invest $1000.
I say No because the majority of network marketers never recruit anyone. The industry average is actually 1.5, so what does that tell you? Chances are you will not even make your money back.
Now here is absolutely the best part of this business opportunity review. I will not only share with you how you can actually make money from your Exitus Elite business but exactly what the top leaders are doing to earn 6 figure incomes.
It really simple. Top earners know how to effectively brand themselves in order to generate an endless flow of quality leads for their business. You need to attract a large following in order to recruit others and make sales.
Want to know how to attract high quality prospects to your business? Here is where you need to start.
ARE THERE ANY CONCERNS OR RED FLAGS ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY?
Here is why….the main concern I have is the way members get paid. Currently, payments are made member to member with your own merchant account i.e. PayPal, Western Union, etc.
Most people use PayPal to accept their payments and PayPal really hates these kinds of transactions. I wonder how long it will be before they step in and stop it or even worse the FTC and eventually the SEC get involved.
For example, last year Traffic Monsoon was shut down by the SEC for something very similar. They were using PayPal to take in and payout all funds.
Exitus Elite is not exactly using PayPal that way but their pay out plan closely resembles cash gifting program which is ILLEGAL. Cash gifting is when you give cash “gifts” (or make payments directly to someone else) and money is made based on recruitment of others and there is no exchange of a product or service.
Can you as a participant in a cash gifting program be held legally responsible?
Yes you can. One example occurred in 2002 and 2003 in Sacramento. The program was a gifting club called Women Helping Women. All the members signed documents acknowledging the gifting rules and that they would not sue anyone involved.
Not only were the program managers arrested but a total of 20 women who were top earners were as well. Each pled guilty to avoid prison and were sentenced to significant public service and fines up to $150,000.
If you get involved with a cash gifting program you will either lose your money or make money and be in jeopardy of being legally responsible for those that did loose money.
Check the website of your Attorney General for more information on Cash Gifting and Illegal Pyramids.
By the way I could not find any info suggesting that Exitus Elite was a member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or an Accredited Business.
Here is what I did find…
The Registered Agent on file for this company is Csc Services Of Nevada, Inc. and is located at 2215-B Renaissance Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89119.
The company has 4 principals on record. The principals are Gurdeep Singh from Laguna Hills CA, John Ellison from Laguna Hills CA, Lee Fitzpatrick from Laguna Hills CA, and Robert Fitzpatrick from Laguna Hills CA.
Well this is a comprehensive Exitus Elite Business Opportunity review, right? Then let’s look at the good as well as the bad.
- High Commissions- $1000
- Instant payment through your merchant account i.e. PayPal
- Products – large digital training library where students can learn Email Marketing, Advertising Marketing, Voice Broadcast Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Video Marketing, and so on.
- International business opportunity available in many countries outside the U.S.
- 14 day Money Back Guarantee on the annual Exitus Membership payment of $299.00-$29 handling/processing fee ($270 or $70 respectfully) .
- No residual income opportunity, commissions are based on one time direct sale of the product .
- 1UP comp plan passes first commission up to sponsor.
- No retail products and you have to be an affiliate to purchase Advanced or Elite products
- Production based comp plan that will require heavy recruiting and building large teams to sustain and maximize income potential.
- $1300 to start. Requires that you purchase $1000 product to be an affiliate and participate in comp plan & $299.
- Strict “No refund Policy” on the $1000 payment
- Annual Renewal fee.
Is the Exitus Elite business opportunity right for YOU?
If you are interested in promoting digital and high ticket products then this company may be a good fit for you!
There is a $299 annual OR $99.00 per quarter, membership fee required to join the company and an additional $1000 (purchase the Genesis Elite package) must be paid to participate in the affiliate program. Only the Genesis Basic product is included in your membership.
The Sad TRUTH
99% of Exitus Elite Members will LOSE Money!
Unfortunately if your looking at Exitus Elite solely for the purpose of the compensation plan and you are an inexperienced marketer without a huge following, this business opportunity probably isn’t for you. I’m assuming that we haven’t personally met yet and that I haven’t gotten to know you. So, I’m going to be pretty blunt here. If you expect to sign up and instantly start to make money without a lead marketing system, let me be the first to tell you … YOU WILL FAIL!!!
The average person in this industry only recruits 1.5 people…So you if you can’t at least recruit one person for $1000, you’re doomed from the start. Your success or FAILURE as an affiliate will ultimately be determined by how many people you can recruit directly under you or to your team.
There is a much better way to make money online without the pressure of recruiting others or chasing friends and family
My Final Thoughts…
If you do a search on Google for this company and products, you will find some negative websites, blogs and customer comments, but that is typical for any business. How the company handles the complaints is key.
You should always make sure you get to know as much about the company as you can before making a decision. So continue to read as many Exitus Elite reviews as you possibly can while researching this company.
Please understand that if you are new to affiliate marketing, the direct sales or and network marketing industry that your success will come from your ability to generate continuous leads in order to make sales.
In my opinion the company needs a little more fine tuning in terms of the compensation plan. My primary concern is the member to member payment that occurs for their Genesis Elite product and access to the affiliate compensation plan may get them in trouble.
Also there are several companies offering Top Tier programs but most offer lower cost front end products and sell the high end “big ticket” products on the back end. As long as the company has a front end offer at $1000 it is only a matter of time before it loses momentum and top affiliates move on to the next big pay day program.
Your Network Marketing Company is failing. They are failing to teach you modern day business building strategies. They are failing to teach you the secrets of the top earners, and because of this you’re staying broke. The pain, struggles, and the frustration you have endured while building your business ends, right here, right now.
