One of the newer MLM opportunities to come along is That Free Thing. I presume you could say it is not a new concept because it was begun in 2007, and it is now in pre-launch as a Network Marketing company. The business was doing almost the same thing a few years ago, and at one time they reportedly had 100,000 active members. What’s different now is the MLM component.
What do they do? They market Free Stuff to their reps. The free stuff can be almost anything. Maybe it could be free clothes, free travel, free product samples, free trials, or even the free house mentioned on the website. The organization gets the free stuff from various companies that give away free samples. They are constantly searching the internet for these freebies, and the reps are given access to them. The reps market the free stuff to others who also become reps.
That Free Thing was launched in its current format in March of 2011. It is an internet based business, and they can make out business anywhere there is free stuff available. Seth Frazier is the founder of the company, and he was also the head man back in 2007. He is popular as the “Freebie King” because of his capability to generate free offers from other companies. There isn’t much facts available about the people who are behind the business other than Seth Frazier. In fact, at this writing, there is no information as to where the company’s offices are, other than Denver CO. If you are looking for red flags, this might be one. Remember, though, that the company was just presented in March of this year – a couple of months ago.
The business calls its members “FreeLoaders”. To become a FreeLoader there is a registration fee of $25.00, and there is a monthly fee of $9.95. Membership in That Free Thing is not one of the free things you get. But it is almost free when compared to other MLM companies. So what do you get? You get 5 free things per week, you can download the free iPhone or Android app, and you have access to training calls/marketing tools. As a business builder there is a video email platform, participation in the TFT 3×8 matrix comp plan, access to a back office, and TFT advertising campaigns.
A 3×8 forced matrix MLM compensation plan is not as common as a binary compensation plan, but they are around. This forced matrix has three generations of matching bonuses. You are paid commissions on both monthly membership fees and new enrollments. The 3×8 means that your downline team would be 3 wide and 8 deep. One perceived advantage in a forced matrix is spillover. This occurs in a forced matrix when people you did not recruit are placed under you. But don’t think you will be able to do nothing and make money. Most forced matrix plans will compensate you based on your level of participation. Get the details on this before you make a decision.
One question I would have is how much benefits is likely with their small fee structure. I’m not saying you can’t make money with That Free Thing, but I am saying you should understand what is possible. The good news is that everything begins with the product, and people certainly do like free stuff.
