Imagine a new advertising network that offered to manage all your advertising inventory on your site and also some juicy recurring income.
Imagine they also offered a substantial bonus scheme for signing up new advertisers and affiliates, regardless of performance.
Oh and they make payments by Paypal, and allow international members. Affiliates who live in the US often overlook that many of the opportunities available to them are closed to international affiliates, and payment by check in USD is often inconvenient (hello Clickbank)
What an Attractive Offer
So you go to the website, start filling out the form and get to the bottom of the page and see:-
Whilst there is the potential to earn some money from the advertising, the real financial incentive is to sign up paid affiliates. Even worse, the “advertising company” and I use that term in a vague attempt to keep this post decent, are potentially making more money from the pyramid scheme than from advertising sales.
Also by dealing with this by Paypal, there is a high chance that extremely quickly the Paypal account of the organisers is going to be frozen due to Paypal Terms of Service, and even if you have paid money in, you won’t get it back out.
Here is the Paypal acceptable use policy in relation to Multi Level Marketing, Pyramid Schemes, Matrix Programs and Trading Schemes Policy
This is all my personal opinion regarding Team Link Network, and I have reported them to Paypal.
Hell they even have a pyramid in their logo. I can’t see them making the majority of people happy so I have made a small correction.
p.s I would like to point out I wasn’t paid for this review and wrote this as an extremely concerned citizen.
