How Trunited Is Disrupting The Broken MLM Industry!

Trunited disrupting mlm

 Trunited has already begun disrupting the broken MLM industry and it will never quite be the same!

Let’s face it, the MLM model has been broken for quite some time now. If you’ve been involved with Network Marketing, Direct Sales or MLM then you know just how difficult it is to build that type of business.

This article has been updated as of 8/7/19 with the latest enhancements the company is now offering.

Some people have had great success, but many have given up before they even started. (see the top 10 ten reasons you will fail in network marketing)

There are a lot of companies out there with some very good products, NuSkin, doTerra, Isagenix, Beachbody, and Jeunesse just to name a few. But even with these great companies, things are broken.

Here are the Top 5 Ways Trunited is disrupting the network marketing industry!

Put the word NO in front of all 5 points below, (and this is just for starters)…

  1. (NO) High Start-Up Cost
  2. (NO) Overpriced Products
  3. (NO) Narrow Niche
  4. (NO) Confusing Compensation Plans (with pay levels most will never achieve).
  5. (NO) High Monthly Auto-Ship Costs

Trunited Six Minute Breakdown:


Almost every MLM company out there requires a start-up fee of at least $150. Some go as high as $1500 to $5000 or more, while at the same time they require some type of monthly auto-ship. Which typically is $100 to $300 worth of product that must be purchased each month in order for you to qualify to earn on the volume YOUR team does.

That last part is KEY because in 95% of the direct sales companies YOU do not earn, or get paid on YOUR PERSONAL VOLUME, you’re only paid on the volume from the people below you.

(With Trunited YOU DO GET PAID on your personal volume!)

Most companies fall into the narrow niche category, meaning they have a select line of products you can sell. If you’re in skin care, that’s what you sell. Health & Fitness, again, somewhat narrow and that’s all you have to sell. Essential oils, great products and there are a few fantastic companies in that niche, but again, somewhat limiting.

Compensation plans, oh don’t get me started.  lol ~ But you know exactly what I’m talking about if you’ve been in the biz, right?

mlm binary comp planBinary’s in my opinion are the worst! They are set up so you’ve got to do so much volume on each side and it must be kept balanced, then they only pay you a percentage of the volume on the weakest leg! 

BUT IF you hit this mark or that mark with so many in your downline doing X amount in a month, then you can receive X percent bonus. blah, blah, blah…

In order for these companies to make the comp plans work, you end up selling products that are way overpriced. It’s the only way they can continue to pay out the field. The image above is typical of how a Binary structure usually plays out. In that scenario your paycheck will be cut in half because you were only paid on the weakest leg!

I could go on and on about comp plans but let’s get back to how Trunited is changing the broken MLM industry.

What Makes Trunited Different?

In order to answer that question we must first answer the question, what is Trunited? 

At its core Trunited is what Dr. Nicholas Porter, the founder calls Socialized Commerce; Amazon on steroids if you will. What he has created is an Earnings Platform!

It’s an eCommerce platform where you can buy everything you are already buying, from the exact same stores, at the exact same prices (if not less) and earn cash back from their rewards program.

Hold on, I know what you’re thinking… This is just another eBates type cashback company, right?


To start with, there is no cost to create an account, (just like with Amazon) only here you get paid back on the things you were going to buy anyway!

When you share the platform with others, you can match points and get paid 100% on the things they purchase too.

You will earn cash back on everything you purchase through the Trunited eCommerce platform. They pay out in the form of what is called “Profit Points.” For the last several months the profit point has averaged between $0.20 to $0.25 cents per point.

In other words, if you earned 100 points for the things you were going to buy anyway in a month, and the profit point was $0.25, you would earn back $25 that month on your personal items purchased.

Share the platform with just 1 person who did the same, you would match 100% and be paid $25 on their purchases, for a total of $50 that month. Do you see where this is going and power of it?

quarter on the ground

Let me ask you a question: If you saw a quarter on the ground, would you pick it up?

Of course you would, right? That’s exactly what Trunited and Socialized Commerce offers with their rewards program. Imagine, every step you take or corner you turn, there’s another $0.25 cents waiting for you.

Essentially everything you are currently purchasing today, is just one more quarter laying on the ground. The best part is, it multiplies the more you use and share the platform!


Five Main Categories That Pay Cashback:

1. Big Reward Brands

This is where you will find a growing list of products that are all sold on Amazon. These companies have partnered with Trunited and offer Trunited members the highest payout of up to 70% in profit points.

By simply converting to one of the many brands shown below, this is where you are able to earn the most money back and is the core of building your Trunited business.


2. Gift Cards

Trunited has partnered with the largest Gift Card retailer in the world. You can earn back from 2% to 14% profit points/cashback on many of your favorite stores where you currently shop; with No Restrictions!

Companies such as: AMC, Amazon, Apple iTunes, Cabela’s, Darden Restaurants, Crate & Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Overstock, Barnes & Nobel, The Gap, Bass Pro Shops, eBay, TJ Max, Stein Mart, Home Depot and Lowe’s, Pet Co, Groupon, Walmart, QVC, Starbucks, Under Armour, REI, Office Depot, Outback, Panera Bread,  and many more!

3. Amazon Rebate Club

Trunited Amazon Rebate Club

Here you will find 5 core products that payout 50% – 80% profit points. These are top selling products on Amazon and for as little as $44.99 you can earn 35 profit points qualifying you to match on everyone on your first level. (see Trunited 360 Comp Plan below).

Amazon Rebate products

4. Brand Bucks

This is a new enhancement which is a Gift Card, Discount Code, and CashBack all wrapped into one Single-Use Currency Code that will pay out 80% profit points! It will work much like Restaurants .com where you pay $20 for this gift card and it has a value of $25. It will pay up to 80% profit points and award them Instantly.

You can use them at any time and can even “Gift” them to someone. Brand Bucks will be used as currency with participating brands in the Big Reward section and for the upcoming “Local Services” which will be release in 2019.

Brand Bucks

5. Local Services

Any Trunited member will be able to connect their favorite local service such as: local restaurants, hair & nail salons, dry cleaners, landscapers, pool services, you name it to the platform.

These local services can offer whatever percentage discount they want, have their business be on the platform and Trunited will drive “Brand Awareness” to their business. They pay nothing upfront for this advertising and only pay once a customer purchases their gift card for that service.

If you are the person who connected a business to Trunited, you will receive an additional 1% commission on whatever the business brings in through the platform. On top of that, you’ll get paid back for for using their product or service.

Think of the hundreds of businesses that are on Groupon or Living Social right now. They have to offer huge discounts of 50% to 80% for their product or service and then pay an additional 50% of the profit to Groupon/LivingSocial for their service. That’s INSANE!

Trunited’s Local Services will offer the same Brand Awareness at a fraction of the cost!

Here’s Something Else To Think About: Could you replace a few regularly used products with something of equal or higher quality in order to make a 5 or 6 figure yearly income? Now remember, all of these products can be found on Amazon for the same price, if not less on Trunited, plus they reward you handsomely, something you will never see Amazon do!

The Trunited 360 Compensation Plan

The 360 PayPlan is a Unilevel pay plan meaning you can share the platform with an unlimited amount of people on your level 1 and Match 100% Point for Point on Everyone in That Level, as long as YOU have earned 30 points or more. 

If you qualify to match on 2 levels (as shown below) you will now match points on everyone in both levels, regardless of how few points they have. You can only match on equal or less than your personal points.

This pays down 15 levels and again, you can match 100% point for point as long as certain criteria has been met. (see Promoter, Pacesetter, etc.)

Promoter: Match Points on Two Levels

(updated as of 9/14)

To become a promoter you only need 3 front line customers all doing 30+ points a month. This qualifies you to match up to 100% on your level 2. Prior to the update you needed 6 frontline people all doing a minimum of 30 points.

Trunited Promoter

Pacesetter: Match Points on Level Three and Beyond

With the update to the PayPlan 360 now to become a Pacesetter you only need 6 front line customers all doing 30+ points a month. This qualifies you to match on your 3rd level. As you add additional Pacesetters in different legs in your organization it will allow you to be paid on your 4th, 5th, and so on levels down to level 15. Prior to the update it was 3-2-1 structure for a total of 15 people, all doing 30+ points a month.


Dynamic Compression:

This is undeniably the most powerful part of Trunited’s compensation plan!

In almost all comp plans “Breakage” is a major factor when it comes to getting paid, and something most MLM comp plans count on.

With the TRU comp plan people down 3, 4, 5, or even 15 levels will compress up so you can match points on them making if far easier to reach the Promoter and Pacesetter levels.

For instance, Bob on your level 2 did not meet the 30 point requirement this month, nor did the people on your level 3 and 4 in that leg. Mike however on your level 5 did earn 30 (or more) points this month so he will compress up above everyone else so you will match point for point with Mike. Pretty cool right!

Keep in mind, you can only match on the number of points equal to what you have. Example: Mike has 143 points one month and you have 100. You will only match and be paid on 100 of Mike’s 143 points. Fair is fair right?


In Addition To Everything Else, Introducing Trunited Travel!

Trunited TravelTrunited has partnered with Priceline to offer some of the best hotel deals I can find online.

At the same time they pay back 11% Profit Points. As a member of this FREE eCommerce platform, not only can you save when you travel, but you can share your travel link with friends, family or just about anyone. If they book a room using your link, they will get the savings, and you will be paid on the points.

World Ventures comes to mind which is another network marking company based solely on Travel. Talk about a “Narrow Niche” but everyone travels from time to time. The Trunited Platform and their Travel program offers so much more than World Ventures can even dream about offering.

In Closing,

Dr. Nicholas Porter’s vision is to disrupt and change the broken MLM industry forever!

His short term goal is for 1 million families to earn back $500 a month or more on the items they are already buying.

Dr. Nico as he is affectionally called, has created this eCommerce platform which requires ZERO to join, has no forced monthly auto-ship, it does not deal in selling over priced products, and allows you to share, match points, and build a team of customers 15 levels deep.

The company has future plans to offer Services as well. Imagine getting paid back from your landscaping company, insurance company, hair dresser, alarm company, or even the next time you buy a house or car. It’s all coming to the platform!

Whether you are looking to build a business or just earn back on the things you are already buying, Trunited just makes “cents”. You’re going to spend the money anyway, you may as well put your money to work for you!

    Thanks so much Bert! Good to hear from you.
    Hope all is well!

    Thanks Andy,
    Let me know if you have any questions. They just came out with a new Challenge which is exploding. “Take One, Find One” with HealthyVida. Basically over the next 12 months, find one person to join the challenge each month and everyone does the same. By the 12th month, the residual income is very impressive. Check out the Calculator they created for it. https://trunited.com/hv-challenge/

    Thanks again,

  • Andy Desher 07/17/2019,

    Awesome article Richard! I agree 100% The MLM industry just doesn’t work any more. I’ll have to check out Trunited!

  • Richard Petrillo 02/27/2019,

    Thanks Onam,
    I’m not sure how you are monetizing your coupon blog now but it appears that Trunited’s free platform would go hand in hand with what you are currently doing. I’d love to help.


  • Onam Sharma 02/27/2019,

    Hello Dhruv,
    Thanks for the compliment, I’m glad you found my article.
    I think promoting your business through some kind of “affiliate marketing” program could be very lucrative. Companies like Clickbank are very popular and may be worth looking into. Expense is always a consideration though…

    Partnering with Trunited’s Brand Bucks program or their Gift Card program is way you can create traffic and new customers to your business while at the same time build a massive residual income with Trunited’s affiliate program which is free. If you are interested in learning more, let’s set up a zoom meeting to discuss.

    Thanks, I look forward to talking with you.

  • Dhruv Mangukia 01/01/2019,

    Hi Richard,
    You have posted some really nice content.
    I own a health and supplement business.
    I want to promote my business through “online MLM”, more like a multi-level affiliate marketing program. I have prepared a draft for the entire program.
    The reason why i want to do this is because rather than paying huge companies for ads, I think it’s better to give opportunity to young blogs and newbie bloggers to make some money via affiliate links (tier 1). They can further enroll other bloggers via a second affiliate link (tier 2).

    I would like to get some inputs from your side.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Richard Petrillo 12/02/2018,

    Hi Doreen,
    Thanks to taking the time to read up on Trunited and for leaving a comment. Much like you, I have never had any “Real” success in any other MLM.

    Most people never make a dime with traditional MLM companies. What I love most about Trunited is it’s not an MLM and anyone can earn back if they just use the platform.

    I am glad to hear you will give Trunited a try. If you don’t already have someone who can sponsor and help you grow your business, I would be honored to help.

    Thank you Anshuman! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Personally I never realized just how many negative points there are to traditional MLM until I compared the two.
    Thanks again,

  • Doreen rausi 12/02/2018,

    I came to your site and have analyzed your post. There are excellent details you posted here. I enjoyed reading your blog, and it is both instructional and enjoyable.

  • bert stead 08/22/2018,

    You are a great leader,and i dont know of anyone who could have done a better job of explaining the superb benefits of joining our Trunited family!
    Thank you.

  • Richard Petrillo 08/22/2018,

    Thanks Judy for leaving a comment.
    I agree, buying stuff you don’t really need just to stay in business is what’s wrong with the MLM model.

  • Judy 08/22/2018,

    Great article Richard! You certainly touched on all the MLM negative points, I for one am thankful for your partnership and Trunited! The main positive for me is buying what I “already buy” and not having to purchase overpriced product I don’t need in order to stay in business. HUGE!!
