Over the last few weeks, I’ve been getting email invitations to join a new social networking website called Neurs. From the outset, it looked like another Network Marketing company looking to get off the ground, but I wasn’t sure. So naturally I took some time to do a little research and decided to write this Neurs review for anyone looking to find information on the company before they join. I do want to disclose that I’m not a member of Neurs. This is good news for you if you’re looking for an unbiased review since I don’t really care or benefit if you join the company or not. With that being said, I do want to encourage you to take the time to go over this Neurs review so you’ll be better equipped to make an educated decision about the company.
Neurs is a new start company that offers a social networking platform for entrepreneurs and business opportunity providers to connect. Think Facebook or LinkedIn, but specifically for the purpose of connecting entrepreneurs with their ideal prospects, and vice versa. And then think that, meets Network Marketing. Of course, the company is just barely getting started so time will tell if it reached the heights of Facebook or LinkedIn. The Florida-based company also offers an affiliate marketing, or Network Marketing, opportunity. Affiliates can earn commissions for referring people to the social networking site. For commissions to be paid out to affiliates, the members they refer to the social network must upgrade to paid members.
What are members paying for? Credits. Access to the different features of the website and making connections with other people on the network will cost you credits. For example, if you post a request to the community, that will cost you 50 credits. If you have an Entrepreneur account and you request a proposal from someone who has a Provider account, that will cost you 10 credits. If you run out of credits, you can purchase more.
There are a couple of different accounts and prices. Here’s a simple breakdown of the affiliate types, membership accounts and membership prices available to you should you join as an affiliate or as a member of the Neurs social site:
Affiliate – You can join as an affiliate which is free. As an affiliate you’ll be able to refer other people to the Neurs social network, and even as a free affiliate, you’ll be able to earn commissions. With that said, the commissions are small compared to the commissions you’ll make as an Affiliate Partner. Also as a basic Affiliate, you’ll only earn commissions on your direct referrals. There is a minimum sales requirement which is one active Entrepreneur or Provider account. You can actually refer someone who pays for an Entrepreneur or Provider account, or you can purchase one of those accounts for yourself.
Affiliate Partner – You can join as an Affiliate Partner for $79. As an Affiliate Partner, you’ll get paid more for doing the same amount of work as a basic Affiliate. Also, you can earn commissions on up to 30 levels of referrals. So assuming, your network grows over time and the people in your network are active paying members, you can actually grow a significant monthly residual income. The minimum sales requirement to get paid as an Affiliate Partner is one active Founding Member Account or Full Access Account. Again, you can refer someone who becomes a Founding Member or gets a Full Access Account, or you can get it yourself.
Entrepreneur Account – If you’re looking for ideal business opportunities that you can join, then the Entrepreneur account is for you. You can get a free account, which gives you minimal access to all the features on the website. You can get a $99/month account, which gives you 1,000 credits a month. You also have the option to pay $997 for an annual account. You’ll save some money compared to the $99/month account and you’ll get 15,000 credits.
Provider Account – If you’re a person who has a business opportunity or service for people looking for them, then the Provider account is for you. For example, if you are a network marketer and you’re looking to share your opportunity with people looking for a business, this is the account you need to get. There is no free Provider account. You can get a $99/month account, which gives you 1,000 credits a month. You can also pay $997/year and get 15,000 credits.
Full Access Account – You can also purchase a Full Access account, which gives you access to all the features of both the Entrepreneur and Provider account. The Full Access account costs $1,397 and gives you 40,000 credits.
If you’re serious about joining, make sure you take a little time to get familiar with these accounts so you can pick the right one for you.
I’m not 100% sure if this concept will work since paying to be a member of a social network site isn’t widely accepted… yet. However, if it does succeed, you can stand to make a nice income if you refer a ton of people now while hardly anybody knows about it.
For me, the biggest “con” of this concept is that it might be a “Pitch Fest” where everyone with Provider accounts will be spamming everyone with Entrepreneur accounts. But I guess that shouldn’t be a big deal since that’s how it pretty much is on Facebook right now. And for me the biggest “pro” is that Frank Codina is involved. Codina is actually the founder of Neurs and was involved with Primerica for more than 20 years. As a former RVP of Primerica myself, I remember watching him to training presentations for the company. He definitely has a good reputation and his background certainly speaks for itself. Does that guarantee that Neurs will succeed? Of course not. But having solid and experienced leadership in place is a major plus for any company, especially a start-up deal like Neurs.
The affiliate compensation plan is pretty simple and straightforward. As an affiliate, you’ll earn $75 upfront when someone you refer becomes a paid member. Assuming they pay monthly, you’ll also earn $10/month residually. As an Affiliate Partner, you’ll also earn monthly commissions on up to 30 levels of paid members. You can earn $.25/month to $9/month on members on your 2nd thru 10th levels, and $.10/month on levels 11 thru 30. For Full Access or Founding Member account they personally refer, Affiliate Partners can earn $500 upfront and $185/month. Affiliate Partners can also earn $3/month to $108/month for Full Access members that are on your 2nd thru 10th levels. You can also earn $1.20/month on Full Access members that fall on your 11th to 30th levels.
There’s also some Bonus Pools you can qualify for based on your rank. And since the company is in ‘launch mode’ right now, there is some Fast Action Bonuses on the table for those who enroll the most people personally.
It might be hard to understand at first, so do some of your own due diligence on the compensation plan. The big money in the compensation plan will go to those who refer the most people, and build the biggest network of members. From that perspective, it’s just like any other Network Marketing company. Those who build the biggest groups, will make the most money. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but if you’re going to join you need to know that going in.
Only you can answer that question. If you see the “big picture” that the company is painting and you like the concept of a social network for entrepreneurs and prospects, then it might be a good fit. It’s a start-up company so even though you run the risk of the company not making it, if it does, you’ll be one of the first people in the company and this ability to be “first to market” will be huge for you. The company has good people in management and the compensation plan pays good.
So all the lights are green for you to make a killing, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. Sure you can refer some people you know, and if they refer some people, and those people refer some people, then all of a sudden you can have a gazillion members in your network. That’s a perfect scenario that is unlikely to happen. Don’t get me wrong. You can build a big network, but you’re going to have to personally refer way more than 3 to 6 people. You’re going to have to personally refer hundreds of people that get paid memberships. In order to do that, you’re going to have to learn how to position yourself in front of people looking for what you’re offering. That’s why I recommend that you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can put Attraction Marketing to use, and you leverage good online marketing systems, you can very well generate way more leads than you can even get to. And if you do that, there’s no telling how big your Neurs network can get over time.
Neurs Review – Need More Neurs Reps?
I wrote this Neurs Review for people looking into the company. Sadly, most Neurs reps will never see the success they desire because they lack the marketing skills to generate 20-50 leads a day.
