Leafit is a re-branded company that used to be Leaf International. At one time their focus was on a social network site that sold advertising on their social network. This is still true, but there is a little more focused on an app that is still in beta as I am write this. Here is my complete Leafit Review.

Just so you know I am not in Leafit and your decision to join that company is all up to you. My purpose of this Leafit review is to give you a clearer idea of what the company is and also share a few red flags that I found while researching this company.

Leafit Review: What Is It?

Leafit is company that offers a social networking site that offers people a way to make money through the site by posting content on that social network site. It seems the idea was to pay the users a percentage of the ad revenue.

At this time, this has moved on to using an app similar to Instragram. Each picture that is posted is connected with a market place. The app searches for items in the picture and finds the least expensive website to buy the product from. This website is posted along with the picture so users can purchase that product. You can also tag the photo to add more products and websites to the photo.

If anyone buys the product from the picture from the website the app picks, you receive a commission. My guess is the commission is very low. You maybe splitting around 5% commission on sale from a website (like Amazon) with Leafit.

There is part of a what is called a Social Web Optimizer (SWO) this is a place where users can go to view advertisers websites. This also allows the user to participate in what is called a Daily Advertising Rebate. More on that later.

Leafit Review: The Compensation Plan

It is free to be an affiliate of Leafit. This allows a person to use the app and make sales from the app. The person will also be able to earn 10% on people who become associates of the company.

Note: At this time that App is in beta testing and only available for people with invites.

To join the company to become an associate there is a $48 annual administrative fee and a $40 monthly builder package. The builder package allows a person to participate in the 3X9 forced matrix, gives $100 in advertising, back office, sales funnels, and distributor support.

In addition to receive commission from the first 3 levels of the matrix, a person needs to recruit at least one associate. To get commissions from all the levels, a person needs to recruit at least two associates.

The first level has a 10% commission, levels 2-7 has 5% commission, and levels 8 and 9 has 10% commissions.

The Daily Advertising Plan allows a user to receive 1.5% - 4% based on the advertising sales rate of the day. To receive participate of the Daily Advertising Plan, a person needs to visit and rate 20 websites on the SWO. A visit is staying on the site 20 seconds. Of the 20 sites visited 3 must give a more advanced rating. The person must also post an ad or Leafit on an website picked by Leafit.

Each ad credit equals $1. A person is able to cash out 70% of the earnings from the Daily Advertising Plan. This include purchasing 30% of advertising back into the SWO to cash out.

Leafit Review: My Opinion

I am not a huge fan of a company paying out ad revenue to the users. It does sound great, but numerous companies have tried this and closed down very quickly. Basically, the company has to put up a lot of ads on the site to try to cover costs. This results in a very poor user experience. To make matters worst, advertisers are not willing to pay to advertise on those sites.

This is backward from the way many social networks have started. Many never relied on advertising until they were already well established. If you look at Google+ there is no advertising at the moment on the website.

Not to mention these type of ad revenue type leaves a company open to the charge of being a Ponzi Scheme.

I often like to look at the leadership of company. The CEO, Lawrence Sowell, appears in most of the videos for Leafit and comes across as a great guy. There is not much on him from a search other than just social profiles.

The co-founder is Steve Heiman, not much information on him is online. However, it seems that him and Lawrence did start a company name Get 2 Marketing in 2007. On Steve's LinkedIn page, he has Leafit listed but as a past job and has Owner of Get 2 Marketing as his current position. The website or Get 2 Marketing it up, but all the links do not work at this time. Also the Get 2 Marketing Facebook page has updates about Leafit.

The other positions listed on their website is VP of Sales and Master Associate. Michael Green is the VP of Sales. He was brought over from ZeekRewards that was shut down for being a Ponzi Scheme. He was the senior executive at ZeekRewards according to his LinkedIn profile. He was not charged with any wrong doing from ZeekRewards.

The Master Associate is Vaughn Tarver. He was involved heavily in promoting the company BidXcel, this company shut down early in 2013. From some Youtube videos it seems he brought some people over from BidXcel to Leafit after BidXcel shut down.

This is not to disparage none of the leadership at Leafit. Everyone has a past and this is just their past and they may be very open with the associates of Leafit about this. They could have learned very valuable experience that they can bring to Leafit. I do not know.

Leafit itself seems to have a history of its own. It went through several name changes from Leaf International and then Vleaf to now Leafit. It does seem that they bundled things together from past reincarnations of the company to bring us to today being named Leafit and the focus on the new app that is to be released.

The company has shifted its vision from a business model paying out of ad revenue to more of social network focused around an app. There is no mention of the SWO or the ad revenue payout on the new Leafit website even in the compensation plan document found on that site.   

I am not here to say to join Leafit or not to join Leafit. That is your choice.

I could not recommend it in my Leafit review. I wish Leafit a lot of success and that many of it associates are able to meet and surpass all their goals from being in Leafit.

There are many online that are trying to sell Clickbank products and other affiliate products through free ways of marketing. It is possible to use paid marketing, but the cost of promotion eat away at the money received in commissions that many shy away from  paid marketing. That leaves just free marketing to promote and that normally involves blogging, so what is the best blog to sell Clickbank products.

Blogging has been around for a while and it is far from dead. In fact, it is growing vastly because of the ease and cost of hosting a blog is very low. So, it is no surprise that many internet marketers are using blogs to promote various affiliate products.

What are affiliate products?

Many websites including BestBuy, Amazon, Walmart, Target, and many websites have affiliate programs. Most are free, and when you sign up you are given a link. If anyone buys a product through your link, you receive a commission.

So you could become an Amazon affiliate, and give that link to friends and family to buy from Amazon and each time they do you receive a commission. The price of the product is the same you just receive a very small (normally around 4-6%) commission.

So if someone bought a product for $1000 you would receive around $40 commission. This is probably not life changing money and impossible to use any paid marketing.

This is where other websites like Clickbank come in.

There are many other affiliate websites that are similar to Clickbank. Clickbank just tends to be the largest. They offer numerous digital products (usually information products) from many different creators that you can promote and larger commissions, usually around 50-75%.

Is A Blog The Best Way To Sell Clickbank Products?

As we talked about earlier, there are some products on ClickBank where you can do paid marketing. However, many times the commissions made does not really justify paying for traffic to a site.

Many times you may take a lose using paid marketing trying to promote a Clickbank product.

A blog is very low cost way to sell Clickbank products.

Is WordPress The Best Blog To Sell ClickBank Products?

The free blogs like Blogger, WordPress.com, and others is not an option. Most of these free websites do not allow affiliate marketing. If you try, some will block affiliate links and others will just shut down your blogs very quickly. Even Twitter blocks Amazon affiliate links.

You have no control with free sites like this.

They are free, because they are using your content that post there to get traffic to get money from advertising sources. So they are using your content to make money.   

There is still other sites like a self hosted WordPress is the most popular. It is fairly easy to set up with any hosting service. It is open source and has a big community around it, with many themes and plugins many which are free.

WordPress is a great product, however it can be very frustrating to use. Sometimes it doses require some knowledge of code to get things to work or look the way you want.

Many do get wrapped up in finding a great theme and all the different plugins. While doing these things they miss the most important part of using a blog and that is creating content to put on it.

Without content there is no visitors to your site. Without visitors there will be no one buying the product you are promoting. So don't neglect creating content if you are promoting anything with a blog.

While WordPress is good, there is another that I recommend just because it is easy to set up a blog and numerous blogs in many different niches you want and manage them all from one central location.

Every now and then, Youtube goes through a phase of shutting down people's channels. It has happened to me and there are some videos on my site that I had Youtube videos embedded on that no longer work. Last night I was on a training and wanted to shed some light on how not to get your channel banned from Youtube.

I know there is a group that has taken upon themselves to protect the internet from anything they disagree with. They do this by flagging Youtube videos and getting their friends to flag the same videos.

You are fine as long as your message is one they agree with. However, if your message is not what they agree with you can run into trouble with them.

This is what I think happened to me. I never got one video flagged for over 3 years and then all of sudden I got 3 videos flagged in one night and my channel was shut down.

You can try to get your channel back and I know some have done that. One  person it took 18 attempts to get their channel back. So this can be done.

It sucks, but you could just start over with a new channel. This is what I did and I started to be a little more selective on the videos I actually post on Youtube. Many times I use the unlisted option for my videos. I just embed them to my website.

How Not To Get Your Channel Banned From Youtube

I was on a webinar last night on MLSP's weekly webinar. The training was on doing videos. One section was on how to not get your channel banned from Youtube.

The whole part of this is giving Youtube what they want. So let's look at part of the terms of service of Youtube:

The one theme that runs through this part is to participate with others on the site.

Many forget that Youtube is really a social media site that centers around video. So be sure to leave comments, like other's videos, subscribe to people's channels. Also be sure to share their videos on other social media sites like Facebook.

It is a good idea to find leaders in your whatever interest you have. Subscribe to them, and leave comments on their videos. Even to a video response and put their link back to their video to what you are responding to.

This helps build your presence on Youtube more and your brand overall. If you leave good comments you will get exposure just by your comments.

Youtube does not want you to direct traffic away from Youtube. This is where I made my mistake. I always put a link to my blog in a video. I am not saying not to use Youtube to get traffic to your websites, but sometimes it is useful to just do a video to get people to subscribe to your channel.   

This does not guarantee that you will not get shutdown on Youtube. They make the rules in this case.

However, if a video is flagged and you get a manual review of your channel. If they see you not active on their site, just posting your videos and leaving that is a huge red flag for them. I think they will give you more leeway if they do see you are very active on their site.  

If you are thinking about using Youtube to post videos, I hope this has helped you to know how not to get your channel banned from Youtube.

Conspiracy theories have always been interesting to me, granted I do not believe many of them. On the surface many conspiracy theories seem possible, but when looked at more deeply they tend to fall apart. The disappearance of the Boeing 777 in South Asia over the weekend has given rise to many Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Conspiracy Theories.

There are many events in history that has conspiracy theories around them and these include Pearl Harbor, JFK Assassination (link), and 9/11. You can find many article, blog posts, Youtube videos, even full length movie (like Loose Change) about different conspiracy theories.

It is very odd that with the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 270. Lost communication with the plan, no distress signal, no wreckage found, stolen passports, and phones still ringing have lead to many wondering what happened and some creating Malaysia Airlines flight 370 conspiracy theories.

You can find the latest updates by clicking here.

Some Of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Conspiracy Theories

Some of the conspiracy theories are far fetching such as aliens abducting or black holes swallowing the plane. Others include a false flag operation. These usually are usually carried out by government covert officials to make it seem like the operation was actually carried out by another organization. Normally the operations are blamed on a terrorist organization.

With flight 370, there are many thought about it being linked to terrorism. The first was the two passenger that boarded the plane were most likely fleeing Iran via Malaysia to get to Europe for political asylum. According to investigators, they have found the two passengers on security cameras at the airport. They have released the photos and know the identity of one of the passengers.

The other has focused on the one of the pilots. He was into politics and a leader he supported was just sentenced to 5 years in jail on what most believe was trumped up charges.

While not conspiracy theories, the most obviously is the plane crashed in an area that they have not searched yet, in a area where it is hard to see the debris, or all the debris has sunken to the bottom of the ocean now.

There have been some reports of debris found by satellite, but when searched through planes and ships turned up nothing.

The other rumor is that the pilot committed suicide.   

Without finding any debris it will be hard to say what exactly happened to the plane.

The one conspiracy is that the plane was stolen and landed somewhere on an island in the Pacific or Vietnam. Then to be used later in an attack similar to 9/11.

This thought entered my mind, but it would be very hard to move it to another location. There is a good chance of a country scrambling planes and shooting it down.  

Here is the video on this conspiracy:

It is weird that many of the mainstream news are giving these Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 conspiracy theories air time. Of course, some networks are running the stories (CNN for example) because it is bringing in big ratings.

Many times it has gone back and forth on the scale of being an accident to being deliberate in terms of terrorism. With little evidence of knowing what actually happened, this has lead to a lot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 conspiracy theories.
