Are you wondering what Tornado Rising is all about?
The first time I heard the name, it doesn’t sound like a biz opportunity at all.
Yet I can assure you, I’ve seen plenty of fancy-sounding programs in my 3 years on the Internet.
And it doesn’t guarantee that they’re any good.
With that said, is Tornado Rising a place that you can count on to make money online?
Or will it only scam your money?
The website claims it can build your future and empower everyone’s dreams.
It then goes on to trigger your innermost desires and explain how the whole system works.
Problem is, you might have seen a very similar scheme before, and you’re thinking that TR isn’t any unique.
In which case, let me detail to you what I found out about this biz opp.
But more importantly, I’ll give you my honest verdict so you can decide if it’s worth spending your time and money on.
Well then, shall we proceed?
Name: Tornado Rising
Founder: Billy Alexander
Price: $35 Per Month + Hidden Costs
Verdict: Not Recommended
What is Tornado Rising About?
Tornado Rising is a company that was established in 2018 and is situated in Atlanta, Georgia.
It works on an MLM business model (or multi-level marketing), which means you have the ability to recruit people and earn income from several levels below you.
But with Tornado Rising, there are NO products or services at all!
And it’s something I should warn you of because the focus is more on enrolling members inside Tornado Rising.
The price for getting inside Tornado Rising is just $35 per month.
The way I see it, your money will pay for the ‘license’ to become an affiliate of the website.
And along with your membership, you’ll get access to an advertising network while giving you ‘ad credits’, which you can use to advertise and drive traffic to your website.
The man behind TR is Billy Alexander. And from what I’ve found out, Billy used to promote another MLM company called World Ventures, which specializes on selling travel packages.
So it would appear like he wants to establish an MLM for himself!
How Does The Advertising Network Work?
By becoming an affiliate of Tornado Rising, you’re entitled to receive advertising credits every month for as long as you’re paying the membership fee.
You can use these Ad Credits to promote your business, particularly your referral link for Tornado Rising, and place it in the website’s Ad Zone.
This allows you to generate a nice stream of highly-targeted traffic.
Traffic which constitutes the people browsing the Tornado Rising website!
Not only will you get a unique referral link, you’ll also be handed with ready-made tools such as banners to better endorse the opportunity.
These banners, like the links, can also be advertised in the Ad Zone.
Overall, it turns out you won’t be starting from scratch when it comes to generating leads (unlike with free traffic).
What bothers me though, is why TR allows advertisers to post highly irrelevant messages (clickbaits) like the ones you see above.
Coz’ if the ad network is legit, it shouldn’t allow an advertisement about fresh oyster mushrooms!
TR Masternodes: What Is It All About?
If you explore the Tornado Rising website, you might have stumbled on its TR Masternodes section.
And unfortunately, this part of the website requires some knowledge on cryptocurrencies.
That’s because TR Masternodes is an ‘opportunity’ for members to invest in cryptocurrencies with the promise of earning passive income.
The good news, according to the video presentation, is you don’t need programming knowledge or tech skills to set up a masternode.
Tornado Rising will provide you with a seamless Masternode Management dashboard, shared Masternode services, masternode marketplace, and an auto-profit conversion tool to keep things simple.
Like with Ad Credits, TR Masternodes is a feature that comes with your $35/month membership. However, you have to shell out some extra cash if you want to participate in the investment.
The Compensation Plan: How Does It Work?
From what I’ve discovered so far through research, there are at least 3 known ways to generate income inside Tornado Rising.
The first one is the straight-line 2×1 matrix plan which goes through 4 cycles.
By the way if you’re not familiar with matrix plans, an AxB matrix means that the matrix is A places wide and B levels deep.
So when it comes to a 2×1 matrix plan, you can only personally sponsor 2 people below you for only 1 level deep.
But since this structure goes through 4 cycles, you’ll be able to earn ‘cycle commissions’ which go as follows:
- Level 1 – $20 cycle commission and cycles to Level 2
- Level 2 – $25 cycle commission and cycles to Level 3
- Level 3 – $30 cycle commission and cycles to Level 4
- Level 4 – $70 cycle commission, creates a new Level 1 position, as well as a new 2×4 matrix position
Do take note that the 2×4 matrix will cost you another $35/month to qualify for earnings, with the first monthly payment taken from your earnings on Level 4.
Which leads me to the second income source, the Weekly or Bi-Weekly 2×4 matrix.
This next matrix format is composed of 2 places wide and 4 levels deep.
Meaning on the 1st level you’ll have 2 people, on the 2nd you’ll have 4 people (2 x 2), on the 3rd you’ll have 8 (2 x 2 x 2), and on the 4th you’ll have 16 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2).
The commissions you’ll earn with this structure are as follows:
- Level 1 – $10 per position times 2 ($20)
- Level 2 – $5 per position times 4 ($20)
- Level 3 – $5 per position times 8 ($40)
- Level 4 – $5 per position times 16 ($80)
Moving on, the third source of income will come from your Masternode Investment.
Like I said earlier, if you place a cryptocurrency investment in TR Masternodes, you’re supposed to get a passive return.
Problem is, the company isn’t clear with how much it’s giving to investors.
What’s clear is that the Masternode also gives ‘commissions’ whenever your downlines make a crypto investment.
The structure capitalizes on the unilevel compensation plan, meaning everyone you personally sponsor goes to your 1st level.
Then if your 1st level personally sponsors their own downlines, they’ll be placed on your 2nd level, and on and on.
This continues until the 5th level, which is the maximum allowable team level you can have.
Here are the referral commission rates of the masternode investment:
- Level 1 – 5%
- Level 2 – 2%
- Level 3 – 1%
- Level 4 – 1%
- Level 5 – 1%
Verdict: Should You Join Tornado Rising?
Now that you’ve learned the facts about Tornado Rising, it’s time to come to a conclusion.
That is, is the biz opp worth joining in the first place?
In my honest opinion, NO.
Though it’s incredibly cheap at $35 a month, I believe it’s also going to waste your precious time and energy.
And here are 4 reasons why I said so:
I. More Hidden Costs Besides The $35/Month Investment
If you think $35 a month is all you need inside Tornado Rising, think again.
What you might not know is that the company also has hidden costs.
For instance, you cannot generate passive income with TR Masternodes if you don’t make a cryptocurrency investment, which is something you’ll cash in with real money.
Then, you’ll be forced to buy Ad Credits in case you’ve consumed your monthly credits.
And also, let’s not forget that another $35/month is needed for participating in the 2×4 Weekly or Bi-Weekly matrix.
If you’re not prepared to allocate your budget for these expenses, better if you stay away from Tornado Rising completely.
II. How You’ll Make Passive Income Is Unclear
I’d love to generate passive income using TR Masternodes if it’s truly legit.
However, the video presentation didn’t explain well enough how it works.
Or maybe it was explained thoroughly in other videos. But because masternodes is too complicated of a subject for an ordinary person, most never get it.
Unknowing members will probably have no choice but to have faith on what Tornado Rising is promising (that the investment is going to generate passive income 24/7/365).
And this promise is what I find suspicious in this company.
No one knows if your money is REALLY being invested in cryptocurrencies.
And it’s entirely possible that your gains might be coming from somewhere else!
III. Emphasis On Recruitment Makes It A Pyramid Scheme
Whether it be TR Masternodes or TR’s matrix plans, one thing I know is for sure.
It’s all about recruiting, recruiting, recruiting!
In short, if you want to succeed and create wealth with Tornado Rising, you’ve got to be skillful at recruiting people.
Coz’ if you don’t, you won’t be making any money.
And even though you’ve got what it takes, there’s still a risk of losing.
That’s because companies like Tornado Rising have the possibility of being taken down by the FTC since they operate like a pyramid scheme.
Not to mention there’s also a Ponzi element in the program because it solicits cryptocurrency investments from members.
IV. The Company Can Collapse When Recruiting Stops
Since everything is all about enrolling new members into the system, what happens if the recruitment stops?
That’s right, the company won’t make any money.
Another big reason why I never recommend Tornado Rising is because their entire business model is ‘unsustainable’.
The company can easily crumble down like a sandcastle washed away by the waves if there’s no more investment money feeding the system.
This is also why I think the TR website is making you feel special by showering you with inspirational messages all over the place.
Building your future… Empowering dreams together… Abundance of opportunity…
Look, it’s part of the plan in order to suck you in!
So please, don’t fall for it.
In the end, because Tornado Rising is relatively cheap, it could still be a motivating reason to try it out. If you fail in this business, you don’t lose that much money unlike other programs which cost 1,000’s of dollars (such as MOBE and Empower Network).
Just don’t expect it to build you a long-term business coz’ it might not last forever!
On the bright side, despite this opportunity being unfit for recommendation, there are plenty of alternative programs you could pursue for long-term success.
They’re usually run by legit gurus who conduct business legally and don’t take advantage of your innocence.
