“Traffic Authority” is a company that’s been around (in one form or another) for 18 years helping other companies with web traffic, leads, and sales.
Traffic Authority Review
Company: Traffic Authority
“Traffic Authority” didn’t have much about themselves on their ‘About Us’ page, so I went to the internet for more information.
Traffic Authority was started by Greg Chambers, Doug Wellens, and Chad Stalvey; and the site Traffic Authority was actually started in 2015. It used to be called by another name— “Infinite Leverage System”, which they still refer to in the video I watched as the group of products they offer. The company itself is a multilevel marketing company that you can earn commissions on for selling traffic generating packages.
Traffic Authority Products
Traffic Authority is all about traffic. They work in three different areas:
- traffic store – buy traffic
- traffic optimizer – get the traffic tools
- traffic academy – traffic training
You can either use the traffic packages purchased to promote and drive traffic to your own website or to your Traffic Authority landing page to generate more traffic to sell more products.
- Basic Package is $220
- Bronze Package is $440
- Silver package is $660
- Gold Package is $1097
- Platinum Package is $2197
- Titanium Package is $4297
- Diamond Package is $8397
How Do You Make Money?
With Traffic Authority, you can start out by either selling the traffic packages or by becoming an affiliate. If money is an issue, you can start out with a $47 monthly membership that gives you access to the packages (Reseller License and Traffic Optimizer). With that membership access, you can sell the packages and get commissions based on your method of participation. For instance, in the research material, it said that the Basic package is $220 and the Titanium Package is $4297. If you chose to participate at the $47 level, you would need to sell three packages before you could make a commission on the fourth package sold.
If you chose to buy a package, you could immediately start earning from those particular packages sold. Anyone that you brought in or sponsored as a team member, you can make the commission on—but only up to the package that you purchased. Meaning, if your team member sold any $220 packages, you could make the commission on $220 packages that they sold. But, if they came in at the $660 package level, they could make commission off any packages they sold up to $660; however, you could not because your level of packaged personally purchased was $220. If you upgraded and owned a $660 Package, then you could start sharing in the commissions for those packages.
In other words, you could not earn anything off higher priced packages sold in your group unless you also owned that type of package. They highly encourage buying the highest package you can in order to make the highest earnings.
This to me is a sales trick, they want to talk you into buying the expensive package so you don’t miss out on any commission, will you?
Is Traffic Authority Worth It?
Outside of the infomercial and a few testimonials (–that don’t go into any kind of detail); the company, in my opinion, is non-existent. They immediately want you to sign up for something when you get to the landing page and the force (sales force) “is strong with this one.” There is nothing about this program that I like or would recommend to anyone. In my opinion, I think it’s expensive, they over promise and with most pyramids, the people who invented the pyramid makes the score.
I say that it’s pricey because, according to the research, you have to own each of the traffic generating products in order to benefit from your downline or residual income. You have to own every package level in order to make commissions on that product– That is insane to me! It’s like having to own or buy every item in a catalog before being able to make money from a sale you’ve made. No one should have to do that. Normally, if you become an affiliate or representative for these types of opportunities, you would be responsible for getting a starter package –maybe; but anything you sold in the book afterward, would all generate commissions for you; no matter whether you bought anything from the book or not.
As an affiliate, or to specifically refer people into the business –I believe there is also a payout, however, because there was no information on the site, I am unsure about how that opportunity works fully.
The other problem I have with this whole plan is selling ‘web traffic’. One thing about web traffic I think should always be true. Web traffic should be organic. If you can’t get people to come to your site just because you have great content for them to see, then, in my opinion, you need to work on the content, not buy likes or visitors. Also, often, when you do buy traffic there is going to be some type of web bot involved that will inflate your numbers on site visitors, but still don’t give site owners the return on the investment (ROI) that a business might be looking for.
In MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) opportunities, it is also important to realize that your personal reputation is on the line. If you ever want to deal with people on any other level, with any other venture, you have to make sure that all your dealings are honest and true. Relations and reputations have been ruined over a deal or opportunity not panning out like it was presented.
For me, this opportunity with selling traffic has ‘bad news and bad deal’ written all over it. If you actually have $4,000 to invest—come up with your own pyramid product. You’d probably do just as well. Find or create something that you are passionate about—and make it work. I just think with this opportunity, you’d be wasting your money and have a lot of disgruntled businesses on your back as well.

If you are planning on using paid traffic, buying ads, for example, you need to know what you are doing, you need to know how to convert your traffic, otherwise, it can get very expensive.
