The Commission Report Review
The Commission Report income system is from Terry Dean and Member Builders and is found at TheCommissionReport.com.
In this review, we aim to find out if they are a legitimate direct sales home business income opportunity or just another big-ticket pyramid scheme of a scam.
The income statements, cash, or checks you saw in the TheCommissionReport.com videos are definitely not typical of what members see after they join.
The Commission Report is nothing more than a way over-priced pay-to-play money game that will likely leave you in massive debt.
I’m going to show you exactly what I mean by that in this review.
I will show you proof that the 43 products listed on their website are worth only a teeny tiny fraction of what the Commission Report income system is charging for them.

Most of these TheCommissionReport.com products are very old and outdated.
I found some that were written way back in 2010.
That’s something like 100 internet years ago. 😉
This is probably why they never talk about the value of the products at any measure and what you can get out of them.

There really just isn’t a whole lot of value to be had there.
They only talk about how much money you can make selling this program and that’s pretty much it.
Watch the TheCommissionReport.com videos again, where exactly are they talking about how great the products are?
If you can find them, please let me know.
The Commission Report is not a network marketing or MLM business so there are no levels or downlines to speak of.
I would actually count this as a positive but it’s one of a rare few with this so-called system.
There is no residual income or passive income component to this either…
At least, not for you there isn’t.
However, the coaches are a different story as they get the orphaned commissions you and everyone else are not qualified to receive.
Although they say that they will close all of your sales for you, you will still need to get your own prospects or leads.
So… how exactly will you get leads or prospects for them to close for you?
This is, of course, not free either.
So this is much more additional debt that you will need to take on just to get this started.
You better make that loan from them at least $30,000 to cover all the advertising as well.
They make sure not to talk about how much it will really cost you to make even one sale promoting this.
It’s not about how much you make, it’s only about how much you keep.
The lead or prospect generation is entirely up to you.
You can however purchase leads directly from The Commission Report income system from their advertising co-op for up to $12.00 each.
That’s actually not that bad depending on the quality of the leads.
This is what most people that join end up having to do.
This might sound like a great deal, but they will not tell you where they are getting these leads from nor their quality.
Are these live leads created today or are they complete junk from 2012?
These could be very old leads… how do you know otherwise?
Who’s to say but them?
Most will assume it will be from the same advertising sources where you found out about this.
But that’s certainly not guaranteed.
I found out about this from a Youtube ad.
What is the actual quality of these leads?
When were originally generated?

The Commission Report doesn’t speak to any of this.
What will you have to spend in advertising costs just to get 1 sale at any level or amount?
What is the lead-to-conversion ratio like?
Is there some kind of guarantee for how many leads will turn into paying customers?
No, of course, there isn’t… no one can guarantee that.
If you ask them about this they will tell you that no business can guarantee a lead-to-sales performance of any kind.
And they would be right.
Yet, how convenient for them when this all doesn’t work out for you.
They simply only need to say, “This wasn’t guaranteed, sorry”.
Or… “You probably need to spend even more on our traffic and leads to get a sale”.
All while you are already $30,000 in debt.
You have to count on them not being unscrupulous.
You really need to know how much traffic will be required to make 1 sale.
TheCommissionReport.com coaches get paid when you buy leads and when you finally make a sale.
I bet you didn’t consider any of this, did you?
Making $10,000 from this sounds great unless you have to spend $12,000, $15,000, or even $20,000 worth of leads to make it.
Again, it’s not about how much you make, it’s about how much you keep.
All of those commission checks the Commission Report income system shows in their advertising completely leave that part out.
Where does TheCommissionReport.com talk about the costs involved in making those commission checks they keep showing you in the videos?
Keep in mind that this is all the while you are competing with those very same marketing veteran pros that are selling the exact same thing themselves.
Yes, these very same so-called “coaches”.
The same pros that are supposed to be closing all of these sales for you are also marketing this themselves.
You will have to rely on your coach to pay you all the proceeds from sales that you qualify for.
This is not something that you can check up on yourself as they are holding all of the cards.
Remember, they are the ONLY ones talking to YOUR prospects and telling them where they need to send the payments.
It’s already set up so that any sales above what you are qualified to receive will be going through them anyway.
And only then will they send you the remaining lesser payment.
Now, what about these way overpriced products in The Commission Report income system I mentioned at the beginning of this review?
For that kind of money, these should be the best available info products on the planet.
So where’s the value in these astronomically priced information products?
There really isn’t much of any.
There isn’t anyone buying these products outside of this system for the prices they are charging.
Absolutely no one!
This is because no one in their right mind would ever spend that kind of crazy money on those product packages.
That is… without being able to resell it for those way over-priced amounts themselves.
This is exactly what I mean about The Commission Report just being a “pay-to-play” money game.
The products are added simply as a formality to make what TheCommissionReport.com is doing legal… barely.
Here are the 4 product package levels and associated costs:
$3,000 Gold Level + $247 admin fee = $3,247
$7,000 Platinum Level + $447 admin fee = $7,447
$14,000 Diamond Level + $647 admin fee = $14,647
$21,000 Ultra Royal + $847 admin fee = $21,847
The sales that the success coach makes for you will pay you $1,500 up to $15,750 – 50% up to 75%.
Every one of the Commission Report’s products is actually only $7.99 at the Private Label Rights website PLRProducts.com.
Here’s a sample of TheCommissionReport.com’s “high dollar” products…
The Total Ultra Royal Package Price is only $21,847.
LOL… “only” $21,847.
LOL… “Ultra Royal Package” sounds impressive & very expensive 😉
This is the first product listed in that Ultra Royal package:
“Viral Marketing Warrior”.
This is the image of this PLR product on the Commission Report…
This same product is retailed for $7.99 on PLR Products.
Go to PLRProducts.com and see for yourself.
Just do a search for “Viral Marketing Warrior” or any of the others listed along with it.
The rest of the products listed on the Commission Report are all $7.99 from PLR Products as well.
Do a search on all of the product titles… they are all listed there.
I even found a lot of these same PLR products on other websites for only $5.00 each.
These PLR products all include reselling rights which is how the Commission Report got them to resale for themselves in the first place.
So, does it sound like good business sense to overpay by 10s of $1000s for the same products you can buy elsewhere for $5.00 to $7.99 each?
I didn’t think so.
Now back to what I said at the beginning of the review…
Those 43 products across all package levels come out to a total of 43 X $7.99 or $343.57.
So yes, that means you get $343.57 of value (or less) for $21,847.00 spent!
How much will you spend on advertising before you give up?
This Commission Report is pretty much along the same lines as those gifting programs that give you nothing at all for your money.
Actually, some of the people behind those gifting programs decided to make their gifting programs “legal” by adding “products”.
And started up all of these low-value PLR product programs instead of another 100% illegal gifting program.
But wait… there’s more…
If you act within 48 hours as an “Action Taker”…
Join at the $21,000 Level and earn 75% commissions instead of 50% commissions!
On top of all of this, they try to convince you to go into massive debt in order to join at the highest levels.
You will be instructed to get a bank loan and then send them a cashier’s check.
Cashier’s Check huh?
That’s so you would then have zero recourse when it comes time to get your money back.
You can’t do a chargeback on a Cashier’s Check… sorry.
Most members will never make anything, but they only show the handful that did… if that’s even true.
Save yourself the hassle and a lot of money and have nothing to do with the Commission Report or Member Builders.
This one is not technically a scam as it does have products and they do pay you something when you make a sale (maybe).
So after all of that, this one is listed as Not Recommended with a half-star rating.
Thanks for reading our review of The Commission Report income system.
