If you are here looking for a critical non biased review on TiDom you have come to the right website. In this short article I will be reviewing this brand new Top Tier Direct Sales company, its products, its compensation plan, its sales funnel and examining whether or not TiDom is a business that will save your financial future (this is what all Top Tier Direct Sales deals say) or potentially destroy it.
First let’s digress a little bit and take a quick look at what a Top Tier Direct Sales (or as some call it Top Tier MLM) actually is and how it differs from other online or home business models.
Now if you read my article on Home Business Models Review or my article on Top Tier MLM, then you already know the how they compare to each other, but just for the sake of a quick refresher…
This business model is very popular but the success ratio very low because it takes so long to reach any type of decent monthly income. All variations aside, (Unilevel, Compression, Roll ups, Binary, Directors Check Match, etc.) the bottom line is that pretty much all MLM pay plans yield about 5%.
So that means that since your monthly residual comes primarily from your downlines monthly autoship (usually $100/mo.) it’s going to take on average over 2000 people in your downline to make you even $5,000/month and since there is no quick way to add 2000 people to your team quickly you have to rely on duplication of your downline and that takes time. In most cases even a great recruiter will spend 2 to 3 years to get there.
You just have to love the appeal of this business model. I mean there are probably 2 Billion (with a big B) people online today and the idea that you can develop a great product and sell to that audience and have your money come in on autopilot is beyond intoxicating…..
It’s like joy on steroids!
Ah but the rub here is that online marketing is hard, very very hard and very technical. Even if you go the easier route of affiliate sales (Selling stuff on amazon, etc.) there is a steep learning curve and the average online marketer probably makes only a few hundred to a few thousand dollars or so a year.
Top Tier Direct Sales – Top Tier MLM
Now this business model takes the Network marketing business model to an entirely new level by making a few critical tweaks.
Top Tier Direct Sales entry levels are higher & the commissions are bigger
With Top Tier Direct Sales, you usually have entry levels that are higher (some going to $22,000 or more) and you get paid a lot larger percentage of the sale, in some cases even 100%
So if you have a Top Tier Direct Sales company where the average sales are $3,500 to $6,500 or more and you make 100% on a sale….
Get the sailboat ready, I am retiring to the Bahamas……
Sorry I got excited…
The Top Tier Plug & Play Business Model
Now two factors I love about the Top Tier Direct Sales business model is that, first the business model is simple and as such easier to duplicate success in, and 2nd most Top Tier Direct Sales companies usually have some type of an integrated Plug & Play marketing system.
Now in the 28 years I have been coaching people in the home business market, the biggest reason I have seen for failure of new members is that the average person has no clue on how to generate leads for their business.
However if you integrate a simple marketing system (that works) into your business model, that makes the business Plug & Play just like many companies do in the franchise industry, then you have a home run.
A simple business model with high profit products, huge demand, and a push button type marketing system that can pour leads into a new members inbox, then you have the makings of a home run.
This explains the popularity of this lesser known business model
Business Model Jumping
Now there has always been an attraction when people in what I call standard MLM’s first are exposed to Top Tier Direct Sales. Its like the blindfold is taken off and they are shocked that there is really a faster more profitable way to earn big money.
However I have also seen successful people in Top Tier Direct Sales models sometimes move to Standard MLM’s. This is usually because believe it or not, they get dissatisfied by just the money and start falling prey to the idea of how great it would be to not have to market every month but just sit back and rake in the residual.
The problem is that they usually have never been there, and do not realize there is a myth to residual income that is not commonly known. Its goes away if you stop business building and recruiting. Slowly but surely attrition eats your team up from the inside and your residual drops. This is why you see top earners in MLM constantly business building, they have to do it to maintain their residual.
Now I am not raining on the Standard MLM business model, I have built a team using this model to over 7 figures a year, and the model is great. Not as good as Top Tier Direct Sales in my humble opinion but still good.
Now that you know the basics let’s examine the latest do all, kill all, to enter the marketplace…
TiDom Top Tier Direct Sales Model
TiDom, which according to the promotional video on the site stands for “Time Freedom” was launched several months ago and immediately attracted a pretty big following from other Top Tier Direct Salers companies, most actually coming from another Top Tier Direct Sales company called “Millionaire Marketing Machine”
TiDom followed the tried and true strategy of using “info products” as their product line and the website lists an impressive review of their “Training Products” that run from Health and Fitness to online marketing and personal development.
Now when you buy into TiDom at a certain level you get 2 things. You get the training products that are attached to that particular level for you to personally use, and you also get resale rights so you can in effect go back out and market those TiDom products and make 100% commissions.
Now just as in Network Marketing business models you can also focus on building a team or in effect just selling the business opportunity rather than trying to market the product.
Now since the bottom line of why people are in business, and especially in a Network Marketing or Top Tier Direct Sales business, is the opportunity to make big money, very few if anyone actually markets the products, they all focus on the business opportunity so the products become secondary.
Important needless to say but secondary
TiDom Compensation Plan
TiDom is structured as a membership based system and there are 5 levels or packages
TiDom Basic Package – $2000
TiDom Builder Package – $3500
TiDom Advanced Package – $6500
TiDom Pro Package – $12,500
TiDom VIP Package – $22,000
TiDom Compensation Plan
Now in many cases in a Top Tier Direct Sales Model the company will collect the sales revenue and then cut commission checks to the reps which puts the company in control of paying out the commissions.
This for many reasons is not a good business model
Also if the company is not reliable or heaven forbid they are really bad at business then there is the possibility that you may end of not getting your hard earned commissions
However, with digital delivery 100% commission models like Tidom has, the money does not go through the company. The money always goes directly from the Purchaser to the Seller which means you are in control of your paycheck and you do not have to wait for some company to get around to paying you.
I have to tell you there is nothing like the thrill of making a $22,000 sale and then having a cashier’s check in your hands the next day
……and you are smiling all the way to the bank!
This payment model I like a lot more than having a company pay you.
You know….. we all love immediate gratification, and this gives it to you.
How Does TiDom Make Money?
Now it may have occurred to you that if the reps are making 100% commission on the products how the heck does the company make money?
Enter the Continuity Business Model……
Now in the world of online marketing one of the most successful and high profit business models is called the Continuity Business Model. This is where an online vendor will create great products that sell and then they give the majority of the selling price and sometimes all of it to their selling affiliates.
Are they nuts?
No they are very very clever. If you have a business model where you offer sales people such a huge commission to sell for you, you are going to get a lot of them all selling your products.
Then you have them pay a monthly admin or web hosting fee and you make your smaller profits off of a lot of people and in fact make more than any of your sales people.
This is exactly what TiDom does, they assembled a great program with great high value products and then give away all the commission. However every rep that joins must pay a yearly Admin fee of between $197 to $497 (depending on which level you buy) and this is where the company makes its profit
Imagine for a moment a company with an exciting business model where a new rep with a little training can generate $10,000++ in their first 30 days and then lets imagine 1000 people joining in a month at an average Admin fee of $297
That’s $297,000 for the company in one month!
Not bad eh….
Everyone makes money and everyone is happy.
The TiDom 1 UP Compensation Plan
Now most people who join a business model like this really think all the money comes from the front end sales but not so.
The compensation plan TiDom uses has been around for probably better than 40 years and is call the 1 UP
In this business model there are 2 factors that control how much commission you make on a sale.
TiDom Membership Level Sets The Compensation Level
In TiDom The Membership Level Determines the max commission you can receive once you are qualified. That means that if someone enters TiDom at the $2000 level then the maximum commission they can receive once qualified is $2000 even if the sale was for $22,000.
The overage on the commission will then float up to the next qualified team member in the line above that member.
Wow… it’s like Xmas all year long
Now with a built in a numbers based marketing system like may reps in TiDom use you know you are going to generate sales and with 70% of the sales coming in at either $3,500 or $6,500, and 25% at the higher levels of $12,500 or $22,000 you can quickly see that if someone comes in at a lower level they are just throwing commission away.
TiDom 1 Up System Gives the 1st Commission to the Sponsor
When a new member makes their first sale of let’s say $3,500 that sale and the new member will pass up to the sponsor as a training sale.
Since you are only qualified based on the amount of the pass-up, that sale will then qualify the new member at the $3,500 level and then every sale that occurs after that at $3,500 or less the new member will get 100% of
Now also remember that the 1st sale passed up the commission and the new member both. That means that the new member is now the directly sponsored team member of the person that they were passed up to.
This generates incredible leverage, I once did a training for a large group to explain why the 1 UP system was so powerful and I used an example of a new member making an average of 4 sales a month at $3,500 and then teaching each new member to duplicate that process so that they enroll 4 each month also.
If you run the numbers out over a year that scenario would generate about $1,775,000 in commissions just based on the pass-ups
Wow the sailboat in the Bahamas is a definite yes now!
TiDom Has Additional Profit Centers
Now the good news does not stop there in this powerful business model you can also generate profit through upgrades and additional pass-ups when a rep has to qualify at the new higher membership levels
If you are at let’s say $3,500 and you have made a few sales you probably want to upgrade ASAP so that you can pull commissions at a new higher level (especially if you were at $3,500 and your 2nd sale was at $22,000 and you watched $18,500 pass-up to your sponsor because you were not at that level).
Upgrading in TiDom is pretty simple, a new member just pays the difference between the level they are at and the level they want to go to. That payment goes to the sponsor but only if the sponsor is qualified at that higher level.
Then once at that higher TiDom level of let’s say $22,000 the recently upgraded rep now needs to qualify at that higher level and that means they must pass-up a $22,000 sale to the sponsor (if the sponsor is in turn qualified at that higher level). Now if the upgrading member was already qualified at $3,500 then they do get to keep $3,500 of the commission but they must pass up the difference to qualify at the new higher membership level.
So as you can see between direct sales, pass-ups, and upgrades the Direct Sales Business model that uses a 1 UP system is killer profitable……
The best way to position yourself in this type of business model is to enroll at the highest level you can afford, qualify and then upgrade quickly.
The TiDom Pass-up Exemption
Now if you don’t want to jump through all those commission hoops and want to just get to the money quickly then you can enroll at the top VIP level of $22,000 and you will be exempt from all TiDom pass-up requirements
That’s right the reason a lot of people enroll at the $22,000 level is that at the VIP level they do not have to pass up any sales at all. They receive 100% commissions on all sales at all levels from day one.
Is TiDom An ATM On Steroids?
Now the biggest question on your mind right now is probably fall into 3 catagories
- Is the money for real in TiDom?
- Is TiDom a scam?
- Can I make money with TiDom?
The answers in order are Yes-No-Yes
Yes TiDom is a real deal and yes people are making money with this Top Tier Direct Sales model.
No TiDom is not a scam.
Yes you can make money with TiDom.
So that means it’s a go right? Full speed ahead and send your check now!
Well maybe, and maybe not
Now TiDom on the surface has a petty slick presentation and the information is pretty compelling, and you can make a lot of money with a business model like TiDom however unless you are a total self starter most people are going to need some training and coaching to get started the right way and then some kind of an ongoing team support structure so that the new people you bring in can get the same level of training and support.
Believe it or not most people who join a Top Tier Direct Sales model, get excited by the money and jump in with the first person they run into and figure that they will get the same training, coaching and support no matter who they join, and then they get frustrated because they don’t receive support and drop out.
So it’s important to pick your team and sponsor with care and to avid the pump and dump members who enroll people and then that is the last time a new member will ever heard from them.
TiDom The Final Analysis
Now if you have already read any of my posts on home business models on my blog, you already know that it’s a pretty well-known fact that I favor the Top Tier Direct sales models Like TiDom, and over the last several years I have promoted more than one business at a time and I am free to choose any deal I think has merit.
I am not married to any one company or business model, and if I find a better or even an equivalent business model I would generally add it to my portfolio.
So would I join TiDom?……..
- Top Notch Products
- The best designed internal systems and websites I have seen in a quite a while
- Highly profitable 1 Up compensation plan
- New Deal momentum
I guess the answer would have to be yes
So What’s The Attraction to TiDom
What has caused TiDom to act like a magnet for members in other Top Tier Direct Sales deals?
Is it just because it’s new?
Well that’s probably part of it…
In the world of business opportunities and Franchises the newer deals just generate more excitement and so you get to take advantage of that additional new deal momentum that gets generated.
TiDom also it has a new very slick presentation (which helps you sell), an updated and fresher looking product mix than several other Top Tier Direct Sales deals that I know of, and it definitively has some growth dynamics working in its favor.
Is TiDom a Sure Bet…
Now will a hot deal with a slick presentation that also pays big bucks make you successful even if you have never been successful in a home business before?
Well yes and no….
TiDom Success – Can I Really Make The Big Bucks Like The Testimonials Say?
Many times people who have not been successful in a home business yet quickly jump to a new deal looking for a quick fix to their slow success.
A powerful deal is only one of the factors that can influence your success, there are equally important factors such as Training, Team Support, and having the right mentor that are the true factors that will really make or break you.
The Pump & Dump Artists
Now since so many people who succeed in Top Tier Direct Sales have not been in other home business models like Network Marketing where the profits come slower and the most critical factor for success is supporting your team so they duplicate into tens of thousands of downline with you getting a small percentage of each. In Network Marketing those who sign people up and then dump them fail big time.
However in Top Tier Direct Sales models like TiDom since there is such a huge commission on the front end the Pump and Dump artists are everywhere. Which in my book is stupid since in a 1 up most of the money is going to be in passups and upgrades once you help someone to be successful, however may do not look at it from my perspective.
Having been a 7 figure earner in my first home business with a Network Marketing company I quickly saw the pattern for success with in support and duplication.
Take my advice here, pick your deal carefully but pick your sponsor and team even more carefully, then get to work and above all never take your eyes off the goal.
