Is PlanProMatrix a Scam? Why Do People Promote This System?
Plan Pro Matrix has enjoyed popularity during the last years, especially in the Philippines. Young people send their payment proofs all over the Internet and want to lure other people to the system as well.
Is Planpromatrix a scam or legit? What kind of job you are supposed to do? Why are so many people actively promoting it? How much can you really earn?
Is PlanProMatrix Legit? – Video Review
Before you dive into my full article (and to tens of comments from people who have used PPM), I want to give you an opportunity to have a look at my video review of PlanProMatrix. In the end of the video, I show and explain the strategy that I used to make +$500 in a single day. I believe you’ll find it useful. Enjoy! 🙂
Read my honest Planpromatrix review to find out. I am not promoting their website, unlike almost all other reviews that you can find on the Internet. That’s why you can trust that you’ll get an unbiased opinion of their services here.
(Also, if you have experiences with this company, please leave them in the comments below so others can benefit.)
Founded: In 2013 by Mark George Naval & Junnel Millano in the Philippines
Cost: Free (Starter Membership); 600 PHP / $12 for Activating Account; $24 for Premium
Type: Data Entry, Captcha, MLM Referral System
Short Review: It’s possible to earn some money on PlanProMatrix but the reality is that most earnings are made by referring other people to their system. That’s why there are so many people promoting their program.
I don’t personally recommend PlanProMatrix as a long-term money-making opportunity because there are many better ways to make money online. In addition, the earnings are very small if you just concentrate doing their mini-jobs.
My #1 Recommendation for making money online is Wealthy Affiliate. Their step-by-step training has taught me and thousands of other people to make a living online. I am sure it will help you as well.
What Is PlanProMatrix?
PlanProMatrix is a website that in their own words offers “several ways to make money online”. It was founded in 2013 in and it the Philippines by Junnel Millano and Mark George Naval.
Without further ado, let’s get right into things and have a look how does PlanProMatrix work.
How to Join PlanProMatrix?
In order to register to PlanProMatrix, you need to have a referral code from somebody who is already their paid member. You will be added to his downline and he’ll earn money from your membership and all from your referrals.
First, you naturally need to fill out all information like username, email, password, address, telephone, etc.
Then you get inside the member’s area. However, at this point, you are not able to start earning because you need to pay the membership activation fee first (see the image below).
In the other words, you are not able to use PlanProMatrix unless you pay.
They have 3 membership options:
- 600 PHP (~$12)
- 800 PHP (~$18)
- 1,200 PHP (~$24)
The more you pay, the more benefits you get. With every membership package, you get 2,000 ad credits that can be used for banner ads inside their member’s area. If your ads are closely related to making money online, they are somewhat targeted to PlanProMatrix audience. However, I believe that inside the member’s area they most likely won’t convert very well.
Anyway, after purchasing the starting package you are ready to start earning.
How to Make Money with Planpromatrix?
There are a few ways to make money online.
Making money on PlanProMatrix can roughly be divided into two categories:
- Mini-jobs like data entry
- Referral program
I have reviewed more than 80 get-paid-to sites that promise you some money for completing mini-tasks. I have learned one thing about them:
Mini jobs never pay well.
The challenge is that when anyone can do the job companies aren’t willing to pay much. They can always find somebody who will do it for way below the minimum salary. As you may remember from my review of Smart Crowd, earning money by doing data entry isn’t very profitable in the long run. Yes, you can earn some money but it isn’t something that would make you rich.
They offer for example captchas that you need to fill out to earn some extra money. Do you remember a website called 2Captcha? It has also gained lots of popularity during the last years in cheap countries. But the earning potential is like $5 in 40 hours. Can you imagine? We can’t call it an online job anymore. It’s a rip off of your time.
PlanProMatrix Referral Program
If I am honest, most people are recommending PlanProMatrix for you mainly because of their referral program. The person knows that when you and other people join this website, they will earn money.
Let me explain how PlanProMatrix referral program works.
When two people join to your downline, you’ll earn $6-7. In other words, by inviting 2 people to PlanMatrixPro, you earn $6-7. Also, for every next 2 persons, you’ll earn the same amount. So, if you are able to invite 200 people, you can earn $600-700. Not bad, huh?
That’s not a huge money in Western countries but in the Philippines is a big money especially for young people. Now you may understand why so many people are promoting this system in the Philippines.
And that’s not even all!
You earn ~$0,10 for each member that joins your group up to 10 levels deep. So, when somebody in your downline invites new people to the system, you earn money. That’s called passive income because you don’t need to work actively to earn it. In my opinion, that’s the best kind of income (if you earn it by promoting good systems).
Being able to earn money from your downlines up to 10 levels deep makes PlanProMatrix a multi-level marketing system. But let’s tackle probably the most important question next:
How Much Can You Really Earn on PlanProMatrix?
The website claims that you could earn $200-300 by doing their data entry jobs. I highly doubt that anyone would earn $300 by solving captchas or doing similar data entry. If it’s really possible those people must be machines or real “beasts”! 😉 If they really are so fast, they would be earning big money by doing something more profitable.
Also, many members who have used PlanProMatrix than I, are questioning if somebody could really earn hundreds of dollars by doing data entry.
People who are top earners on PlanProMatrix are those who have climbed to the top of the pyramid and are earning lots of money from their referrals. So, the system works in a similar way like any other MLM-system.
“But At Least I Am Earning Something. Any Money Is Good In Philippines!”
I have heard this kind of argument from many people who live in cheap countries. I understand the point. Certainly, you prefer earning $5 than earning nothing. That’s understandable.
But what if you could earn $50 instead of $5 by using the same time and doing more interesting things? What if you could learn new skills while earning more money?
When I started earning money online I faced this question quite quickly myself. I knew many GPT sites where I was able to earn money fast and easy. However, the problem was that they didn’t pay so well. I knew that it would lead me nowhere in the long run.
I wasn’t yet making money with affiliate marketing but I knew that the potential was much greater. I had mentors who were making $10,000/month online and I knew if it’s possible for them, it will be possible for me.
I refused to spend my time on GPT sites and I also made a decision that I don’t recommend them to others. It was a right decision. Now I’m able to make more money with affiliate marketing than I could ever do by completing mini-tasks on GPT sites.
Of course, I’m leaving some money on the table because I don’t recommend PlanProMatrix or other similar sites to others. But I think they are not the optimal use of my or your time so I don’t want to encourage anyone for that.
PlanProMatrix Complaints and Negative Reviews – “They Didn’t Pay My $200!”
In the end, I would also quickly like to mention about one typical complaint that a few people have faced on PlanProMatrix.
One guy had earned $200 by referring many people to this system through his website. He was ready to cash out his money. However, it didn’t happen so easily. They had problems with the payment (probably because he was living outside of the Philippines).
Some other people also reported about the same problem.
This guy contacted their support several times. He didn’t receive a satisfactory answer nor his money. The work of promoting PlanProMatrix was in vain.
Other person experienced the same but he was paid afterward after the PlanProMatrix update. So, this might seem they have fixed the problem for payments abroad. I haven’t seen people reporting problems with payment to the Philippines.
Anyway, if I combine these two this doesn’t look very good.
- Low earning potential (compared to other online opportunities.)
- Possible problems with payments
This brings us to our final question.
Conclusion – Is PlanProMatrix Worth It?
I only can recommend PlanProMatrix in case that you want to try and see how it works for the curiosity. It will cost you 600-1,200 PHP and sometimes so if you are willing to invest that for your learning, go ahead.
However, I don’t recommend PlanProMatrix as a money-making opportunity. You could earn so much better by doing something more profitable on the Internet.
Let’s put things into perspective: top earners on PlanProMatrix earn $300 per month while top earners of affiliate marketing make $300,000 per month. There’s a huge difference.
I’m not saying that you would be immediately earning such amounts with affiliate marketing but that example illustrates the difference. Even though you would be an average earner with affiliate marketing, you are still earning much more than people on PlanProMatrix.
Affiliate marketing is such one example of making money online. There are also many other ways:
- Creating videos
- Creating courses
- etc, etc.
There are endless opportunities that are better than data entry jobs. If you would like to get a step-by-step training on how to make big money online, I highly recommend trying out Wealthy Affiliate.
Their training has taught me and thousands of other people to make a living online. If you learn the process, you could live like a king in the Philippines! 😉 That’s why I am actually planning to visit for a few months there in the next year.
At the moment I’m living in Austria but soon I’ll move to cheaper countries because my income doesn’t change but my cost of living will dramatically decrease. That’s the beauty of making money online.
Have you or some of your friends used PlanProMatrix? What kind of experiences do you have? Have you already learned better ways to earn money online?
