An Overview of Talk Fusion
Its always a tough challenge when it comes to deciding which company or business opportunity one should sign up with. Especially with the fact that you have so many choices out there, it makes picking ‘the diamond in the rough,’ all the more difficult.
Is Talk Fusion for You? Welcome to my review of the Talk Fusion business opportunity.
Started back in 2007, with a 10-year presence in over 140 countries, it’s hard to ignore Talk Fusion as a viable choice. However, let’s take a look at ‘what is talk fusion all about’ and see if its really going to be worth your while to invest all your efforts into it.
PROS AND CONS OF TALK FUSION
- Instant Pay Commissions
- Member of DSA(Direct Selling Association)
- Long presence in the Market
- Products are expensive
- Complex compensation plan
- Products are not necessarily unique
How Unique are the Talk Fusion Products?
The Talk Fusion products are based on making video marketing easier for people. Having said that here are the five main products within their basket.
- VIDEO E-MAIL
- VIDEO NEWSLETTERS
- SIGN-UP FORMS
- VIDEO CHAT
- LIVE MEETINGS
As the name says, it’s all about sending video emails to your friends or family. Whether you want to promote a business or simply send a ‘happy birthday’ wish, this sort of thing certainly adds a personal touch.
The big question is,’is it really unique to our ever-evolving industry?’
If you really enjoy this sort of thing, then I’ve got some great news for you.
Video e-mail is FREE! Yes, it is actually right up your alley. Big Daddy Google offers 100% video e-mailing for nothing!
Check it out, type in ‘free video e-mail’ in the Google search bar and see for yourself.
The same applies to the Live Chat feature. There are so many platforms out there that give you the functionality of live chat across many platforms.
What about the live meetings?
You guessed it! You will find a plethora of services that offer you the ability to do live conference meetings.
You’re probably wondering why I am rambling over and over about the fact that you get similar products elsewhere for free. It’s because of the price.
Take a look and see what you would have to pay to get started with talk fusion.
The Price of Talk Fusion Products- It’s Out of this World
There is 3 different product packages that you can choose from.
If you go for the cheapest option of $250, then you get ONLY ONE video e-mail template and limited storage space for all your work.
As I have mentioned earlier on, you can get video templates for FREE.
At the end of the day, are these products really unique? Most importantly, is it worth it, for the price that you will be forking out?
What do you think?
Next up, their compensation plan.
The Talk Fusion Compensation Plan
As with most MLM’s out there, Talk Fusion also has a fairly complex compensation plan, that can leave one ‘feeling dizzy’ when you try to understand it.
Associates can join Talk Fusion in two ways. You can either choose to become a customer and only purchase their products or become a distributor and promote Talk Fusion and build a business around it.
The cost to become a talk fusion associate is $39. This entitles you to receive instant pay commissions upon making a sale of their products.
However, besides paying this fee there are two more criteria that need to be fulfilled before you can get on with your talk fusion business.
- You need a Sponsor– You cannot enroll without a Sponsors ID.
- You need to purchase a product– In order to be eligible for any compensation, you would have to purchase one of their product lines.
If you look at the diagram below, you will see that there are 8 ways in which you can earn.
This is the entry level of earning that involves selling the TALK FUSION products.
Apart from the selling of the products, you would also need to recruit people into your downline.
The reason as to why this is important is because the collective sales would ultimately determine the TEAM COMMISSIONS that you would qualify for.
You earn based on the number of TOTAL SALES VOLUME.
Your team would consist of yourself, and two other people, one on the left and one on the right-hand side of your downline.
If your downline accumulates 100SV or sales volume(on both sides), then you successfully complete 1 cycle. This cycle qualifies you for a $25 commission.
If you earn:
- 5 Cycles in a week, you get $125,
- 10 Cycles you get $250 and
- 50 Cycles you get $1,250.
Other ways of earning through Talk Fusion
There is the:
FAST START BONUS– This is income that you would get depending on the business packages that you sell.
RESIDUAL COMMISSION– The income from all your ACTIVE subscribers.
MEGA MATCHING BONUS– This equates to 10% of whatever commission your Associates earn.
LEADERSHIP POOL -When you achieve higher ranking status, you qualify to earn a percentage of the total SV generated within the company.
CUSTOMER POOL-If you get the most sign up’s within a month, you get $1000.
In addition, the company offers other incentives such as:
- RECOGNITION RINGS
- DREAM GETAWAYS
- CAR INCENTIVE
WHAT IS THE TALK FUSION SUPPORT LIKE?
Upon sign-up, you get a couple of marketing materials.
- Marketing Website
- Product Brochures
- Branded Gear(additional expense)
- Lifestyle Magazine(additional expense)
Apart from your free marketing website, the additional promotional items are at your expense.
My Personal Opinion of Talk Fusion
Personally I think that the products are expensive.
My opinion, should you decide to join TALK FUSION, is that you may find it tough to sell products to people. This is based on the fact that not only are they expensive but they are easily available elsewhere at a cheaper price.
There have been stories of a talk fusion pyramid scheme. I think that in this regard, the company does have a product.
Having said that, it is evident that there still is a strong focus on recruiting people. What do you think? Does Talk Fusion sound like a pyramid scheme to you?
Speaking of recruiting, this is what would determine your ultimate success in this MLM.
The question is, how good are your marketing and sales techniques? It’s all fine having a ‘Talk Fusion Youtube video’ and ‘marketing website’ to show to your family and friends. But what happens when that option is exhausted, where do you go from there?
I’ve personally tried MLM’s and I did not fair well at recruiting members. I found the products to be pretty expensive. Therefore, in my case, I would NOT pursue the Talk Fusion Business opportunity.
If you are interested in something else besides MLM, then I’ve got some great news for you….
MLM VS AFFILIATE MARKETING
I enjoy following a business concept called affiliate marketing. It’s something that ANYONE CAN LEARN. It’s all about earning commissions from selling other people’s products and services from your website.
Trust me, building a website is not tough. I can prove it to you by showing, that you can have your very own website framework in under 30seconds. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about RECRUITING anyone or buying any expensive products.
The other benefits of Affiliate Marketing is that:
- IT IS PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS
- THERE IS NO COMPLEX COMPENSATION PLAN
- YOUR BUSINESS IS OPEN 24 HOURS A DAY
- IT’S CHEAP TO START
- YOU CAN BUILD A BUSINESS AROUND YOUR PASSION
I started with an online platform called Wealthy Affiliate. Their support is amazing, with a community of over 800 000 people, all learning to build their online affiliate marketing businesses.
The best part about affiliate marketing is that your business is online which means that you get access to over 3 Billion people a Day! I don’t think that you would have a problem of finding customers.
If you think that Talk Fusion is not for you then check out Wealthy Affiliate.
Signing up with them is FREE. You get TWO FREE WEBSITES, and upon sign up, ACCESS TO THE FIRST 10 LESSONS OF THE ONLINE ENTREPRENEURSHIP COURSE. You can test drive the entire system and see if it is something that you enjoy doing.

Talk Fusion seems rather expensive. In my opinion there are better ways to start making money online from home. I see that suggest affiliate marketing, and I agree with that 100%.
I actually have three affiliate marketing sites up and running and doing very fine for myself. But I always keep my eyes open for other online work opportunities – that’s what brought me to your site… just doing some research.
Thanks for the review. I think Talk Fusion is one to avoid, at least for me.
Thank you for sharing with us.
Wow! three affiliate marketing site. That is amazing.
All the best and keep it going!
As a beginner in the online business talk fusion seems to me like a big investment with no guarantee of any return. This is exactly what I am avoiding and a business based on recruiting people is so much tiresome. I just want something I can invest less money and doing the job from the comfort of my home until it big enough for me to finally leave my day job and concentrate on it. Do you think I can get that form the program of wealthy affiliate advised above?
Thanks for your comment and question.
Wealthy Affiliate offers one the opportunity to start an online business, from knowing NOTHING at all.
You get a FREE SEVEN day trial to test drive the entire system and see if it is something that you would like to pursue.
If you decide to join them for the long run, the cost is minimal as compared to what you are paying to join Talk Fusion. You would be building an online business that in time would be able to sustain you for years to come….
I hope that this helps
Thanks for the in-site. I think Talk Fusion does sound like a pyramid scheme. It would definitely be hard to sell there products when there are so many similar products free out there now. My preference would have to be easily affiliate marketing over MLM. People don’t have to be pushy and there is definitely less risk involved. And affiliate marketers aren’t trying to rip people off to get a sale or spend money they don’t have.
Thanks for your valuable input. I think that is the tough part, selling something that is readily available elsewhere and at a cheaper price. This is, I think the challenge that one would face if you were in the Talk Fusion business.
As you said with affiliate marketing, people will only earn commission once someone buys a product or take on a service. In this way, one does not have to outlay any huge capital for stock purchases.
All the best to you in your online adventure.
I enjoyed your post. Initially, the Talk Fusion program looks inviting but after closer scrutiny you realize this is something that could end up costing you a lot of money with little compensation. I agree it’s hard to recruit. I’ve done some MLM and the most I ever made was $100/mo. I also agree that affiliate marketing is a much better way to go.
Thanks so much for your comment.
I guess that MLM can work out for certain folks. Looks like it will not work out for us. I do enjoy the affiliate marketing concept.
How is your affiliate marketing business going so far?
From you review it certainly seems like a waste of money to become a distributor of Talk Fusion.
I had not heard of this MLM before reading your blog, but it follows the same pattern as all the others because of the recruiting element involved.
I agree with you, affiliate marketing is less stressful than recruiting for an MLM.
Thanks for stopping by.
Wish you all the best.
