In this review you will learn about 4 corners alliance group scam, products and its compensation plan. A former school mate invited me to join this product based MLM and she told me how easy it was to make money by recruiting people to join the scheme.
In the first few paragraphs, you will notice how MLM companies are NOT about the quality of the ‘product’ but only ‘recruitment’ matters. I will also show you how to use spying tools to check if an MLM is still worth joining.
Well, l told her that l don’t like chewing on lemons ……. let me have a look before l take my first bite.
4 Corners Alliance Group Review.
As expected, this product based MLM was created by David Harrison after quitting one of the oldest supplement based companies. Yes, most MLMs are formed by ex-distributors who realize that the owners are making a killing by selling snake oil, so why not sell theirs and call it ‘less poisonous snake oil’.
In this case, David created PDFs, books and a newsletter. The PDFs and books are created with content with Private Label Rights. (l will show you later where you can purchase thousands of such content for $5). This content is what distributors buy, download and refer others to do the same.
We know that one average ‘Only ‘28% of Americans have not read a book in the past year’ Huff Post Books. Here we are talking of purchasing 100s of PDFs, 30 plus books and reading a weekly newsletter…. DUH? l even wonder if these books are kept up-to-date.
For starters, in Multi-level Companies (MLM) affiliates or distributors make money from payments made by
suckers Newbies they will have recruited or sponsored. The new people will also make money by recruiting others and so forth.
The owners introduce ANY product to cover up the scheme from prying eyes of authorities. Yes, any product from overpriced supplements, oxygen drops …..
This obviously sounds like Four Corners Alliance Group is pyramid scheme hiding behind the sale of documents.
Four Corners Alliance Group Pyramid structure.
Since this program is based on selling PDFs and books to ‘new’ people who then visit the website to make payments and join the scheme l expect traffic to be ALWAYS increasing.
To cut my story short, l took my tools of trade and visited the website. First, l checked the traffic volumes because they indicate if new people are continually joining the scheme. To some extent, it also shows if those joined the MLM before are sticking around and visiting the website for training or updates.
The figure may not be accurate since other traffic is diverted to the sub-domains.
Still, l am not impressed though?
So, if new people are being continually recruited and those recruited before are sticking around, why is traffic falling in 100s of thousands?
Sorry mate, it’s too late for me or anyone with even a bean sized mind to join your MLM.
Well, after showing my potential sponsor all these statistics, she insisted that people where still joining and making thousands of dollars.
I really got pissed off.
…. but l remained calm and decided to take the debate a step further. Without wasting my precious words, l clicked on the ‘Traffic Sources Tab’.
I got a shock of my life….
Traffic was coming from Traffic Monsoon and Paid to Click among other websites. What’s App Web is another interesting source.
What l can only tell you is Traffic Monsoon also pays people to click on adverts and website links. The name paid to click says it all.
You senselessly click on links to websites and get paid a few pennies. It is like having an army of human robots. Payments depend on how much you have also invested in buying ads.
So, most of the traffic recorded as visiting the website is NOT real traffic …. they are human bots. The traffic is crap!
How to join Four Corners Alliance Group.
You can only join if you have a sponsor. You need to identify someone already in and they will give you their sponsor id which you can use to join. lf you still want to join this ‘responsibility’, l will allow one or two sponsors to drop links to their websites (no affiliate links) if they leave informative comments. Deal!
Again the traffic to fourcornersalliancegroup.com the account creation page has fallen from 100 K to 40 K per month (see screen shot above).
Feel free to interpret what it implies. A dumb way to interpret is is that 100K distributors only managed to recruit 40K Newbies. That is 2 distributors per recruit — lol.
Jokes aside, this doesn’t look good.
Four Corners Alliance Group Products.
1. 3O Books plus PDFs split into 6 levels costing $16 up to $399. You must buy the whole series if you want to earn commission from purchases of all the ‘products’.
You can purchase the same PLR articles on Fiverr for $5. You can also create 30 Books with 3 000 plus pages each. Some are even offering 300 000 articles for the same price. This is a clear pyramid scheme making people pay each other for dog doo… lol.
2. Newsletter – $29.95 per month. One of the most expensive newsletter online.
3. Starien Online Digital Marketing Academy – $47/month if you want more training. That is if the 30 books and newsletter are not making you any money.
Four Corners Alliance Group Compensation Plan.
I will not waste time explaining how you will be compensated to recruit people or the so called retail sales. You can read about it on the company’s website, here is the link.
A lifetime enrollment fee of $8 is required and you must spend $10 in 180 days thereafter or sponsor Newbies to cover the cost for you.
The low cost is to entice people to upgrade membership and start recruiting. The difference with affiliate marketing is that most of the programs are free to join.
4 Corners Alliance Group BBB complaints.
Please note that it is not compulsory for companies to be credited with BBB. However, most companies register their holding companies with BBB. These holding companies hardly receive any complaints because they are not dealing directly with affiliate, distributors of clients.
If you check the screen shot, you will notice that FCAG is registered under Cornerstone Alliance Group which still has got a C rating.
Is Four Corners Alliance Group a Scam, Pyramid Scheme or Legit MLM.
With all fairness, l think the company has done a great job in laying bare what you are getting yourself into. The refund policy is also stipulated and they stated that you may not get a cent from your investment. If they honor their refund policy and pay distributors on time …. it nearly passes the test. The selling of over-priced PLR content is a problem though.
So, is it a Pyramid Scheme? The compensation plan resembles a pyramid scheme with supposedly new recruits supposed to be forming a wider base at the bottom. Unfortunately, the distributors pyramid is now inverted due to a few people joining the scheme. This is normal with MLM as the hype wore off and there are more negative reviews around the web.
Since it is an MLM fronting dummy products, Four Corners Alliance Group can be classified by novices as legit. However, l know from previous MLM companies closed by FTC such as Vemma that balancing the distributor to client rates of 49% to 51% is a challenge. Traffic is on a downward spiral, which may mean there are too many distributors compared to clients. Once FCT smells the scent of a pyramid, that’s it.
