PIF Explosion Review – It’s Not Looking Good!

It's Not Looking Good - PIF Explosion Review

PIF explosion has seen a lot of hype about it’s recent launch. But can you believe what you hear? These kind of companies are popping up all over the place, but do they have the staying power for you to consider an interesting investment?

I’m here to help you find out in the PIF Explosion Review.

Could this be the next big thing?



Product Name: PIF Explosion

Website URL: http://pifexplosion.com

Cost: Free to start but $4.90 for a matrix position

Rating: 0 out of 5

My Recommendation: PIF explosion is yet another advertising and MLM business and not a particularly good one, that I don’t think will last long. If you want a way to build a reliable long term profitable online business, read my top recommendation.


What is PIF Explosion?

So, do you want to know what PIF stands for? Pay It Forward. A common term in MLM Marketing.

They are a platform for selling advertising AS well as an MLM business. Simply put, but see how easy it is to find out this information!

The business was first registered on August 18th 2015, so it is a really new venture. The website represents this. It feels a little sparce. I searched around but could find nothing about who owns the business. Anyone who knows anything about online business knows that it is important to make it clear who owns the site. The more you do, the better your site is ranked as quality, and trustworthy. It bothers me that they don’t share this with us.

Why would you risk an investment with a company you know nothing about?

But it’s quite obvious that this business is owned by the same people who run pif43.com and pif4infinity, but they don’t disclose any information about their owners either. In fact it seems that Pif4infinity is no more and pif43 MIGHT turn into PIF Explosion.

So I ask you, why the need to keep changing the business name? That is worrying.

Anyway let’s pretend this doesn’t matter and move on…

PIF explosion calls themselves the ‘Best Giveaway Profit System on the Market’. That doesn’t really clear anything up

Their first introductory sentence doesn’t tell you anything about what they are, except that they run a ‘forced Matrix compensation plan’ SO right off the bat, they are not talking about their products, but talking about their compensation plan.  When a company is all about recruitment with no product to actually sell, it starts to sounds like a pyramid scheme. Alarm bells.

This video below explains really simply about the downfalls of the Forced Matrix compensation plan which PIF Explosion operates which makes it a particularly difficult Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) plan to be successful in.

If you are here, looking to build an online business,

then take a look at my number one recommendation 


How do you make money with PIF Explosion?

To get started you need to purchase a position in the matrix which you can get for $4.90.

Everytime someone joins and purchases a position for $4.90 you get a commission. This commission is broken down into a direct commission of $2.50 per affiliate recruited and the remainder is spread out through the matrix which is a massive 3 x 15 structure. See the video above if you want to know more.

Based on the model of  forced matrix, you, as the affiliate, would receive commissions once the positions in the matrix are filled either by YOU recruiting or by someone in your downline recruiting. In a 3 x 15 matrix that is a total of 21,523,359 positions! And, you can earn up to $1,089,463.50 if you fill up your matrix, only 21 million positions.  Ridiculous!

So how much do you get when you recruit someone?

Let’s use an example – This is what the matrix might look like:

  • YOU
  • Level 1 – has 3 positions – you get 75 cents per position filled
  • Level 2 – each of level 1 has 3 each – 9 positions – you get 50 cents per position filled
  • Level 3 – each of level 2 has 3 each – 27 positions – you get 25 cents per position filled
  • Level 4 – each of level 3 has 3 each – 82 positions – you get 10 cents per position filled
  • And so on..

So the concept of Pay it Forward works like this: Essentially YOU PAY for the GOLD position for the person you are recruiting and the plan is that you recoup this commission through other sales.

Although, what happens if affiliate recruitment slows, so will commission payments and therefore positions within the matrix will stop being filled.

You can see where this is going..


What is PIF Explosion


So what about the products?

When You promote PIF Explosion You are not selling anything, you are simply GIVING AWAY GOLD MEMBERSHIPS!

They claim that to get started you need to be ‘Invited’. Funny how everyone who goes to the website seems to be invited. When you are invited, you are instantly told that your sponsor has paid for your GOLD membership, so it’s actually Free to join. What a lovely gesture!

So what do you get for your gold membership?

Your Gold membership includes FREE Advertising to a LARGE database of Professional Internet Marketers and Opportunity Seekers. Pretty vague!

But if you join today you get

  • 1 Contact Solo Ad -> Every month
  • 10000 Banner Impressions -> Every month
  • 500 GUARANTEED Visits -> Every month
  • The possibility to enter the 3×15 Forced Matrix

So that’s the product – Advertising.

So how good is this advertising? Everyone wants visitors to their site but is it worth it?

Presumably these ads that you are buying will be displayed to other affiliates who sign up to the business. How useful will they be for your business? Do you want site visitors that are just not interested in your products.

To me, that makes the advertising part of the site unimportant and irrelevant, it is therefore ONLY about the recruitment. Pyramid.


My Verdict

PIF Explosion is a no goWhat I have learnt whilst writing my PIF Explosion Review is that just looking at the website, it looks quite unprofessional, there are spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. It looks a bit thrown together and there is no more than one page of content there. The menu bar at the top just skips you down the page.

Ok that’s aesthetics. That doesn’t mean, on it’s own, that it should be avoided.

This program is very new, so the jury is still out, but with this forced matrix set up and the lack of quality products to sell, I seriously would stay well away. I don’t see this going anywhere at all.

If you really want to work online and have your own business you need something that isn’t about recruitment but that is about building your own business from scratch. A sustainable, long term and profitable business. That is the only TRUE way to make an excellent income online. If this sounds like you, then try my no 1 recommendation for starting your own online business.

    Hi there,

    So the product is advertising, and by the looks of it untargeted visitors. Any quality advertising network should pride itself not on its compensation plan to affiliates or network marketers but in the quality of its products and their ability to provide targeted visitors. That, in my humble opinion is where they fail drastically.

    • Ruth says:

      I agree Derek. But somehow this doesn’t bother people and they keep buying the traffic when it is no better than useless. People usually just buy the ad packs to be allowed to participate in the revenue share. It all sounds a bit dishonest !

  2. Robert says:

    Hi, thanks for the article. There is a lot out there on the internet with such systems, and I don’t know. For some reason, I cannot set myself to understand those. Is it like revshare ? I joined such a website, and spend 1 hour, and have no clue what it is about.
    But luckily I understand affiliate marketing. I just make a website and sell someone else their product and get average 10% commision. Wealthy affiliate is a nice place for it or join other affiliate programs directly via their advertiser. I really cannot set myself to understand complicated pyramid like systems.

    • Ruth says:

      Hi Robert

      Thank you for your comments. You are right, revenue share is confusing, and usually it is lumped in with other stuff, like compensation plans and pay to click. This leads to a whole world of confusion for most people, but somehow these businesses can do quite well. Traffic Monsoon for example is a real success and they operate on a much better model but the website traffic is weak and the compensation plan involves heavy recruitment.

      I am pleased you have found Wealthy Affiliate too! It’s a great place to learn isn’t it!

    Good review on buildarealhomebusiness.
    I don’t like that there is no mention of the owners names sounds like a scam to me.
    Also you mentioned that the site does not actually sell or promote any products.
    Personally I find it very strange that an online business does not sell any products .It would be different if the site was a service site that educated people and gave valuable information that helped people.

    • Ruth says:

      Hi there

      They do actually have a product to sell, it is advertising and packs of advertising. What I meant, and maybe this isn’t clear, is that when you promote PIF and try to get people into your team, you are not actually selling any ad packs, you are giving them a gold membership which you essentially have already paid for.

      I hope that makes a bit more sense. I will look at my content and make sure I make this a bit clearer. Thanks!

    Hello Ruth. When I look the word ‘hype’, at the back honestly, I can see this is a MLM concept because MLM involves the hype approach of selling.

    Anything that involves compensation is also another common term that involves MLM.

    For the last few days, I red people’s articles about MLM and words like ‘hype’ and ‘compensation plan’ are ones which present in these posts.

    This is why I, like you, I’ll give a zero.

    • Ruth says:

      Thanks for reading Tar. Yes I don’t think this one has longeveity, but time will tell. I will look forward to finding out!
