Jocial Compensation Plan
There are mainly two ways to earn as a Jocial Influencer: Individual Earning and Team Earning. Both types of earning are further divided into different parts depending on the requirement fulfilment.
Individual earning is the earning of a single influencer regardless of his team members or their work. It is further divided into three parts:
|Reward Point||Reward points are earned on updating profiles, daily activities and promotional activities. 100 reward points = 1 USD|
|Campaign Bonus||Approx. USD1 to USD 15 is paid weekly depending on the campaign activity, type of influencer and type of subscription.|
|Premium Brand’s Campaign Bonus||Selected Micro-influencers and above receive additional premium brand’s campaign bonuses.|
Apart from the Individual Earning, the influencers can also earn through the teams. The Team Earning is also further divided into three parts.
- Matching Bonus
To become eligible to receive this bonus, one has to build the downline i.e. recruit more influencers under him. Matching Bonus is the Jocial Point (JP) generated with the subscription plan by each team. When the left and right pairs match, 10% of the total JP is given as Matching Bonus.
Here 1 Jocial Point equals USD 1.
The unmatched Jocial Points of both teams get carried forward.
- Super Matching Bonus
It is the 10% daily bonus on the matching bonuses with the personally recruited influencers.
- Global Power Bonus
As soon as an influencer qualifies for the club of Global Power Bonus, he starts earning of total global Jocial Point turnover monthly.
It is calculated as 5% of the Jocial’s 1-month turnover paid to the Global Power Bonus Achievers.
There are different clubs such as Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Crown and Ambassador with the personal enrolments as 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18.
If an influencer directly brings 18 personally recruited influencers, he is added to the Ambassador Club.
The influencers are asked to make the payments through bitcoin, perfect money or payeer whereas the influencers are paid in the form of bitcoin.
Jocial claims to be the best influencing platform but its reality is different.
Firstly, according to the official site, Jocial is operated from the USA while the exact address is not provided anywhere. Also, the Facebook account of Jocial is operated from India, Bangladesh and Ukraine.
Domain jocial.com was registered in 2008 but the Wayback Machine shows that the site was launched in June 2020. It means, Jocial shows itself as an old company but it is not.
Also, Jamie March who claims to be the founder of Jocial is not present on any social media nor any of his details are out over the internet. Without any validity, he aims to create the biggest influencer marketing platform.
One of the biggest red flags of Jocial is its expensive courses.
Jocial charges heavily for subscriptions of 3 months and 12 months while the actual cost is not that much.
If Jocial really wishes to promote Influence Marketing, it should focus on making good influencers and not on increasing the number of influencers.
Is Jocial a Pyramid Scheme?
Jocial does not provide any affordable product and uses the network marketing concept.
Individuals have to pay a huge amount to become part of it and bring new people to earn commissions.
Existing members are paid by the subscription cost of new members and the cycle goes on.
It is money circulation and Jocial is a pyramid scheme claiming to be an influencer marketing platform.
