Just what exactly is Finish Line Network?
When I saw the sales video, I felt thrilled.
Not because there are hyped income claims (like earning thousands per day).
But with the idea that there’s none at all!
I’ve done hundreds of reviews on this site, so I can intuitively feel whether a biz opp is scammy or not.
FLN, for me, is something that stands out.
It persuades you in a way that is not hypey, yet still promises the same goal: financial freedom.
A lot can be talked about with this company: founders, products, systems, compensation plan.
Is Finish Line Network something that will work for total newbies,
Newbies who are totally new to making money online,
Newbies who have little resources to spare,
Newbies who have never made money before?
Now, I’m not affiliated with this opportunity, so I’m not interested in your money.
Likewise, I won’t try to stop you from joining Finish Line Network.
However, with so many biased affiliates promoting this scheme,
I wanna’ take a look myself and share my honest, unbiased insights.
This is so you’ll get a complete understanding of how FLN actually works.
From the inside AND the outside.
Shall we dive in?
Name: Finish Line Network
Founders: Paul Counts, et al. (See below)
Price: Too many to list here! (See below)
Verdict: Recommended, but only after passing the criteria below
What is Finish Line Network? In a Nutshell
Finish Line Network is one of the biggest biz opp launches this 2018.
The idea behind is that anyone will be able to start from the ‘finish line’.
Rather than staying far behind the starting line.
The video mentions that so many ‘gurus’ provide biz opportunities that are total crap.
They give you some training, but then you have to figure it all out by yourself.
And yes, this is true.
I’ve reviewed hundreds of biz opp programs in the past, most of them being half-baked.
They’re lacking in so many areas, and are not worth your money!
With Finish Line Network though, you’ll have everything you need to succeed.
The product, the system, the tools…
Training, community, support, motivation…
You name it.
But technically speaking, FLN is a combination of Internet marketing, network marketing, and advanced online marketing.
Each of these areas provides a ‘critical element’ that’s integrated into one total package.
It’s a totally convincing explanation.
Unlike the low-quality junk I’m always reviewing in this site.
The ones that don’t give a preview of what’s inside.
Finish Line Network reveals everything you wanna’ know on the inside.
That’s a good sign.
And I give it a big thumbs up.
The Titans: aka People Who Run Finish Line Network
With the intro clarified, let’s move on now.
And talk about the founders behind this biz opp.
Mind you, these founders are bigtime Internet marketers and entrepreneurs,
With 75 years combined experience.
They have at least a 7-figure income in their portfolio.
And they’re responsible for driving in over a hundred million dollars in revenue.
Indeed, they’re a force to be reckoned with!
Wanna’ know who they are?
The main founder of FLN is Paul Counts.
He’s a well-known super affiliate who sold over 10 million dollars worth of digital products.
I’m quite impressed.
Because Paul has his own personal brand website (paulcounts.com).
And he’s been on the Internet scene for 19 years.
He’s also coached over 100,000 students and helped them grow their businesses.
So no question, this guy is definitely something.
Josh is the trusted business adviser of Paul Counts.
Helping and guiding him in his decisions.
Josh helped Paul in setting up FLN and planning how the entire system will run.
Unfortunately, that’s all I can say about him.
Joel and Kitty Kellman (aka the “Kellmans”)
Joel and Kitty Kellman are part of Paul’s team inside FLN.
They are the founders of Online Sales Pro, which is a system designed to generate more leads and sales.
OSP has its own mobile app, which helps track your performance, as well as notify you when you get new sales.
Overall, their systems have generated over 20,000,000 leads.
And made close to $50,000,000 in sales over the past 10 years alone.
Their expertise, particularly with technology, would definitely make a good addition to the team.
Other Team Members: Greg, Doug, and Chad
Now, this next set of team members are also great businesspeople.
As well as super affiliates in their respective programs.
I’ll try to recap what I can remember in the video presentation about their bigtime portfolios.
They’re owners of the ‘Reverse Funnel System’ for ‘Global Resorts Network’, where they generated $30,000,000 in less than 24 months.
They worked with Greg Montoya in creating his ‘Laundry Pure Marketing System’, where they generated over half a million leads and produced thousands of sales.
After which, they pivoted into ‘retailing traffic’ and selling the highest quality unique clicks (which is in 2011).
For this venture alone, they sold over $10,000,000 in 3 years.
While helping companies like ‘Empower Network’ and ‘Lightyear Wireless’ sign up more than 10,000 affiliates.
And earning tens of millions of dollars in commissions.
In order to reach a broader market, they created the ‘Infinite Leverage System’ and ‘Traffic Authority’, which are both traffic brokers that sell clicks to the masses.
They’ve helped over 40,000 team members sell more than $15,000,000 in traffic (traffic conversion tools and training).
And have paid out over $7,000,000 in commissions to their members!
Pretty big numbers, would you agree?
Imagine Greg, Doug, and Chad bringing their expertise to FLN.
That would absolutely take the company to the next level.
Ensuring YOU get the best education possible!
The Product Lines: What They Are And How Much They Cost
Let’s now talk about the products and their respective prices.
So far, there are only 4 product lines inside FLN.
The image above shows a simple representation of all four of them.
And I’m gonna’ break them down today.
FLN Silver ($47/month)
The smallest and cheapest product inside FLN is the ‘Silver’ membership.
Basically, it’s a fully-loaded lead management platform.
And it comes with an ‘app’ that allows you to run your entire business from your phone.
That’s because it’s the same as the ‘Online Sales Pro’ system created by the Kellmans.
Probably, it’s their contribution to the company all along.
FLN Gold ($130/month)
Next to the Silver subscription is the Gold subscription.
By getting Gold, you’ll get access to an incredible monthly Virtual Live Event (or VLE).
The VLE, according to the video, is hosted by top strategic speakers and influencers in our space today.
Not only that, there’s also a special bonus included in the package.
You’ll get a Content-Rich Vault filled with the latest digital marketing training modules.
The modules provide information on what’s happening now in the world of Internet and affiliate marketing.
FLN Gold: 3-Year Membership ($2,997/3 years)
This 3-Year Gold package is just the same as the original Gold package.
The only difference?
It’s a large lump-sum payment of the Gold subscription.
Which enables you to become a fully-fledged member of FLN for 3 full years.
Without being bothered by monthly payments in your credit card.
And since this is a bulk purchase, you’ll get a TON of savings.
You’ll save around $1,685, compared to a typical monthly subscription that runs for 3 years!
Email Profits On Demand or ePOD ($1,997 one-time)
ePOD is a suite of digital marketing products.
That which helps you become a ‘customer acquisition’ expert.
The video claims that even if you’re an average person,
Without any prior knowledge of digital marketing,
By using ePOD, you can turn into a professional digital marketer.
Whoa, that’s a huge claim there!
Can such training exist, considering its hefty price?
‘Digital Domination’ Live Event Ticket ($997 one-time)
Finish Line Network also offers high-ticket live events.
The first event is called Digital Domination.
Basically, it’s your opportunity to meet and see successful digital marketers sharing EXACTLY how they achieved their success.
And yes, I agree that we should always seek the best in the space.
Follow their advice and actions so you’ll be damn sure to succeed.
It’s also where the top affiliates will be recognized and awarded so you can keep your eye on those heavy hitters.
Oh, and by the way…
Since we’re already here, let me include a couple more “special bundles”.
I apologize since I might not be able to fill in all their details.
At least you’ll get an idea that they exist.
Special Bundle: Silver and Gold ($197/month?)
It turns out you can combine both Silver and Gold in one purchase.
Which helps save you some money (and hassle).
You’ll get both the lead management app and VLE in this single package.
Better decide if you want to take this bundle or not.
Since it’s more expensive.
Special Bundle: The “All-In” Bundle (~ $4,000 to $5,000)
Going All-In is the most expensive purchase you can make inside FLN.
And I was able to estimate a rough value for it’s price.
Obviously, the price of ePOD, Digital Domination, and Gold 3-Year will decrease.
When they’re bought together in a wholesale.
But dude, it’s gonna’ cost you an arm and a leg for this investment!
However, the video claims that its long-term benefits are superb when you grab the bundle from Day 1.
Why did I say so?
Let me explain it next.
Compensation Plan: The Part Everyone Drools Over
I’ll be upfront with you when I say:
“Finish Line Network is an MLM company.”
That’s because you’ll make lots of money from the referrals underneath you.
Not just from your own referrals…
But also from the referrals of your referrals!
And with MLM programs like Finish Line Network,
Come highly lucrative compensation plans.
FLN boasts of its extremely powerful compensation plan, called the Profit Maximizer.
Profit Maximizer encompasses the exact guidelines for how you’ll get paid.
Which is done by recruiting people inside Finish Line Network.
Your main source of revenue comes from recruiting people inside FLN!
Smells like pyramiding, right?
Don’t wanna’ continue? That’s okay.
Just leave if you’ve had enough.
Feel free to leave if you’re allergic of MLM and pyramid schemes.
Great, shall I continue?
As I was saying, you’ll make money by recruiting new members.
For the sake of terminology, the people you’ll recruit are called downlines.
The people who are above you are called uplines.
And there are two main streams of revenue.
It’s either through: Direct Commissions or Bonus Pool Commissions.
I. Direct Commissions
These commissions are earned when a downline purchases any of the product lines I explained above.
Namely: Silver, Gold, ePOD, and Digital Domination.
But in order to qualify for Direct Commissions, you must purchase the product you want to earn commissions with.
In short, you gotta’ pay-to-play!
If your downline purchases ePOD, you must have an ePOD to make the commission.
Since your downlines are ‘hard-coded’ to your account for life:
Or else, you’ll miss the sale all along (and be passed to your upline).
Alternatively, you can sell 6 units of ePODs.
So that on the 7th sale onwards, you’ll be qualified to earn from ePODs.
Speaking of commissions, here are the commissions for each product:
- Silver – $20/month
- Gold – $52/month
- ePOD – $800 one-time
- Digital Domination – $320 one-time
But hold on!
These commissions will still be split between you and your upline.
By default, you’ll be splitting 50/50 with the upline right above you.
Since you’re still on an entry rank (called Rising Star).
For Silver, you’ll initially get $10 per month.
For Gold, $26 per month.
For ePOD, $200 one-time.
And for Digital Domination, $160 one-time.
In order to qualify for greater incentives, you must sell 6 packages of the specified products.
That’s the only time you’ll be promoted to an 80/20 split in commissions.
Now, FLN pays direct commissions on a weekly basis.
And from what I see, no minimum payout is required to get your earnings.
II. Bonus Pool Commissions
Finish Line Network introduced its Bonus Pool system to excite its members.
After all, it’s another source of income besides the Direct Commissions.
According to the video presentation, your Bonus Pool grows via Personal Sales, Team Sales, and Other People’s Sales.
And I’m wondering…
Could it mean that the Bonus Pool grows via EVERYONE’s sales?
Everyone must be filling up this pool whenever sales are made!
One giant pool that will be distributed to all!
(Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong with this understanding…)
Anyway, in order to qualify for Bonus Pool Commissions,
You need to generate sales from FLN’s products via your downlines.
Or get a rank promotion (from 1 star to 4 star).
You’ll get an appropriate amount of ‘shares’ for the Bonus Pool depending on what you’ve sold.
And these are the guidelines for getting them:
- 1 Share – Silver & Gold, Any High-Ticket Digital Product, Gold 3-Year, and Reseller License
- 3 Shares – Gold 3-Year, Digital Domination, ePOD
- Rank Promotion – 1 Share per star (i.e. 3 Shares for a 3-star promotion)
Ever wondered how the Bonus Pool gets filled?
Simple. Just take 20% from the commissions on any of FLN’s product.
Making your Bonus Pool contributions as follows:
- Silver – $5 per month
- Gold – $13 per month
- ePOD – $200 one-time
- Digital Domination – $80 one-time
- All-In Bundle – $400 one-time
Now, Bonus Pool Commissions are paid monthly.
However, no one knows what the pool’s value will be.
Even so, I have a guess.
Take the total value of that pool, divided by the total number of shares accumulated.
That’s the value of one share.
And no, you won’t get all the money from the share.
It still depends on your ranking, which are listed as follows:
- Rising Star – 60% of share price
- 1 Star – 70% of share price
- 2 star – 80% of share price
- 3 Star – 90% of share price
- 4 star – 100% of share price
If you think of it, there will be leftovers.
Unclaimed commissions from the Bonus Pool coming from the lower ranks.
What happens to those commissions?
They’ll be transferred to a 4-Star Bonus Pool.
And only 4-star members can feast on this pool!
Therefore, an added source of income among the 4-Star earners!
Don’t Get It? Here’s the Full Video of the Compensation Plan
I’ll stop my explanation here.
Coz’ in the next part, I’ll be telling you overall…
Whether FLN is something you can consider joining.
Especially if you’re new to making money online.
Verdict: An Excellent Business Opportunity or Not?
Finish Line Network is pretty nice.
It’s a seemingly orchestrated scheme that will bring the best in anyone.
Therefore, giving a clear path to financial freedom.
However, I see a couple of problems with joining FLN.
But instead of discouraging you to join, I’ll let you continue your pursuit.
As long as you can say YES to all these questions:
1. Are You Willing to Go “All-In”?
If you’ve checked the compensation plan video above, you’ll notice a common trend.
Everyone who’s got the All-In Bundle makes WAY more money,
Than those who are conservative with a Silver membership!
Opportunities pass by the person who doesn’t spend huge money on the scheme.
My point: If you’re gonna’ try FLN at all, do it ALL-IN.
Half commitments simply don’t cut it.
Question now would be, are you willing to buy the entire bundle,
Which has a hefty $5,000 price tag?
Or an even simple question: Do you have money?
Coz’ if not, then stay away from FLN all along.
2. Are You Willing to Work Insanely Hard?
MLM schemes are harsh environments.
It only favors the big fish.
The heavy hitters who have plenty of connections, money, and resources.
Those who can bring in thousands of leads with little effort (leverage).
Frankly speaking, any business you start will face a lot of competition.
And Finish Line Network is not a way to get rich quick!
Does this mean you’re toast?
You just have to hustle more to stand a chance at recruiting.
Follow the training diligently, attend virtual and live mastermind events.
Which brings me to another question…
3. Can You Study and Emulate The Masters?
Ordinary people can turn into Internet millionaires.
That is because they follow specific principles to make it happen.
Principles that typically originate from successful people (the top 1%).
When doing MLM, you can’t just take advice from anybody.
You gotta’ follow and study the heavy hitters.
Do EXACTLY what they’re doing.
And ignore everyone else!
Well, that is the price to pay.
If you wanna’ win BIG in the game.
4. Do You Have Nerves of Steel?
Along the way, you’ll face lots of rejections.
And abundant quantities of hates, objections, criticisms, and naysays.
Whenever you put yourself out there, trying to recruit new people into the scheme,
You’ll be thought of as an ‘evil marketer’.
“One who’s only going after people’s money.”
“One who’s pretending to look kind or generous, since he’ll sell you something.”
“One who’s participating in a pyramid scheme!”
Can you handle all these dialogues as you walk your way to success?
5. Are You Willing to Take The Risk?
MLM programs are notorious.
They’re FTC’s favorite targets for shutting down.
In fact, three MLM’s I know (and reviewed) have already shut down.
And that includes:
- Empower Network
- Digital Altitude
- And just recently, MOBE
Since Finish Line Network is in its infancy, it could still last long.
And probably, you’re still in the best position to cash in on the scheme.
However, if something happens and the company gets taken down,
What will happen to you and your money?
Are you okay with buying into a platform that can go down without warning?
Answer is up to you.
In The End, You Decide On Your Fate
If you cringe on any of these questions, I suggest you stay away.
And run as far as you can from Finish Line Network.
You’re simply not fit to play the recruiting game.
You’ll only end up losing money (and weeping precious tears) if you don’t know what you’re doing.
This reminds me of the $2,000 I invested on a coach.
My idea was “the larger I spend, the better my chances of succeeding fast”.
Sadly, I was wrong.
A few months into his program, I still didn’t see success.
And worse, my coach left me for good!
Leaving me with a debt that I couldn’t pay.
Now, do you have to ‘spend big’ to prove if something works?
In the original training university I enrolled in, a lot of people are succeeding without spending lots of money.
They drive traffic for free, and still make a lot of profits.
Thanks to their simple yet effective money-making process.
