It’s time for a Zukul Review.
If you’re like me your first thought might be: “How in the world do you even pronounce Zukul?”
Then other thoughts about Zukul creep in.
Is Zukul a good business opportunity?
What is their compensation plan? What do they sell? How do the Zukul Distributors make money?
Is it easy to make money with Zukul?
Can I do Zukul?
All these questions and more require a thorough look at the Zukul Opportunity in orer to determine if it’s for you or not.
Even with all the information in the world, it ultimately comes down to YOU.
Your own work ethic, persistence and diligence in pursuing Zukul or any online company.
This mlm review site is to here to help you make informed decisions.
Let’s get to it…
Zukul Review – Company Info.
Zukul was formed by Michael Bloom and Jeremy Rush in 2014. It’s a fairly new company in the mlm industry and, like many of the new ones launching these day, they offer marketing tools and software to help new Zukul distributors.
As far as experience goes, it looks like Jeremy Rush has a little bit more experience in the network marketing industry.
If you dig a little deep, you can find that Jeremy has had his hands in writing content for several money making opportunities such as Ds Domination, Banners Broker, Penny Matrix, MMO Cashout and Adhit Profits.
Zukul Business Opportunity
After launching Sept. 1 2014, the company has had a few growing pains. There were early rumors of the site having some small issues, but they seem to be quickly resolved.
The news of having receptive leaders makes Zukul more attractive. Keep in mind though, that this is often the case with new mlm companies.
When things are smaller and still manageable, companies like Zukul will get more attention by the owners. Hopefully as Zukul continues to expand and grow it will continue this trend.
Speaking of trends, how does Zukul look in regards to it’s online presence?
It’s a bit sketchy.
The first peak is right after their launch and then it looks like a pattern is emerging that has to do with the new year.
Do they run ads in the new year with new gusto and focus and then completely forget about it?
It’s pretty weird to see this.
I’d much rather see a gradual and consistent climb rather than one that spike, drops off the face of the Earth, spikes, disappears to the Moon and then spikes again.
Actually, let me show you something that is better….
See the gradual growth for the past 10 years? This is a much better scenario. Having wee little spikes and then completely off of the radar is not ideal.
Good think I know a great online coaching program that gets this and teaches it.

Ok, so aside from the bit of a trend problem for this make money online opportunity, what else is Zukul about?
Here’s a photo of their website:
Basically Zukul is an online money making opportunity that falls into the multi level marketing niche.
They have three different membership categories from which you can join that is designed to walk you through affiliate marketing. (Reminds me a bit of Wealthy Affiliate or the Click Bank University)
Zukul is suppose to give you skills to promote anything but they also offer their own opportunity which can make you money by promoting Zukul to others.
Zukul Reviews – Products
The Zukul marketing system reminds me of IPAS 2.0 because it has a whole set up to provide you with a blogging platform, capture/lead pages, auto responders and other tools that smarty pant marketers use on a daily basis.
When you purchase the Zukul Product, you choose between Three membership levels which are as follows:
Beginner – Cost: $19.60/month
- Social Sniper Pro
- Capture Pages
Intermediate – Cost: $54.50/month
- Social Sniper Pro
- Facebook Ninja Pro
- Auto-responder tool
- Landing Page Software
- Banner Creator
- URL tracker and shortening tool (think Bitly and Twitter)
Advanced – Cost: $272.50/month
Includes all of the above AND a Video Submission Tool, extra training and more.
With the higher price associated with a video marketing tool, it might be time to consider what you might need to work on getting good at for your online marketing.
Ahem. Cough. Cough. Ahem! (Video is hot)
In addition to getting the tools through your membership, you can buy the marketing tools as well.
This is what allow Zukul to fall under the “legit” multi level marketing company. Without products, the actual mlm would be against FTC guidelines.
Who knows, it still might be because of the strong focus on recruiting others, but this is not always the case.
There is a very fine, clear ghost line between what the government says is mlm scam or not.
It’s an interesting niche to observe.
Here is some information on the Zukul Tools so that you can get an idea of what your sales pitches will be about:
- Zukul Social Sniper Pro – It’s a cool name and it does something pretty cool. It basically allows you one platform to access all of your social media accounts. This is very similar to Hootesuite or Bitly. There are several types of social media tools like this, so Zukul is not the first. As with any tool that accesses your social media profiles, you will have to keep tabs on the security to keep out scammer creeps.
- Zukul Facebook Ninja Pro – Similar to the above, this tool posts to your Facebook Groups for you. It’s specifically for promotion through Facebook Groups which allows your own timeline to stay free and clear of your propaganda.
- Zukul Blogging Platform – Much like Kalatu’ for Empower Network blogs, Zukul has it’s own blogging platform too. This is where the line is drawn for me. It’s never a good idea to post and put hours into a blog or platform that is NOT owned by you. Sure, you can post here and there, but focus on building your own BRAND by building your own WordPress blog or Weebly site. If you leave Zukul, you get to take your power and your blogging articles with you.
Zukul Review – Zukul Ad Network
Perhaps an explanation of the most recent spike is that Zukul is prelaunch a Zukul Ad Network.
Wow, these types of things must be hot because I just saw this with Click Intensity.
It seems like a similar platform like My Advertising Pays or High Traffic Academy mlm.
These are what are called Rev Share programs.
To me it always sounds like clicking to make wee little bits of fake money or credit until you reach a certain number and then it turns into cash.
It kind of scares me, but maybe I’m wrong.
If anyone has experience in any of the Rev Share money makers out there, please comment below. I need all the info. I can get.
Zukul Compensation Plan
Zukul has a unilevel set up.
This means you bring in people at level one, they bring in people (your level 2) and so on.
As with the Click Intensity Opportunity that I just reviewed, there is no limit to how many you can put on your Level 1.
Make Money with Zukul
To make money with Zukul you have to join. Then your pay follows the following rules:
- Level 1 – $10 commission
- Level 2 – $5 commission
- Level 3 – $4 commission
- Level 1 $13 commission
- Level 2 $5 commission
- Level 3 $4 commission
- Level 1 – $55 commission
- Level 2 – $25 commission
- Level 3 – $10 commission
Basically when you bring people in, you get paid on what they pay. For example, if you are a Beginner in Zukul and you bring someone in, you receive $10 of the $19.60 they pay. If they find someone too, then you get $5 from that $19.60 pay.
If you do that math, you see that at the beginner level, the $19.60 is paid out to the upline three levels with 60 cents left over.
That 60 cents must be the admin fee each month.
Let’s jump to an Advanced Level compensation example. Say you bring in someone at the advanced level and an advanced person, you get $55 of that $272.50. All the rest goes upline. The most that would go out to your upline would leave $182.50 for admin and bonus fees.
Speaking of bonus. Each time your personally enrolled members bring in someone, you get a 50% matching bonus.
If you are in the Intermediate or Advanced Level, you earn more levels deep (so this explains the higher membership costs).
In order to earn at the different levels, you have to have bought or be a member at that level.
Beginner levels only make the beginner commission even if they bring someone in as an Advanced member.
In addition to the typical mlm pyramid set up, you can earn money via retail sales of their business tools. (Remember there will be competition for other tools out there too!)
If you’re good at sales, you could make more money selling tools than recruiting, but big bucks are always had when you recruit in a network marketing company like Zukul.
Strangely, PayPal does not support Zukul. This is a possible redflag.
When a major company isn’t involved, you have to wonder why. Paypal is a company that stands behind purchases made on their platform and if Zukul isn’t using them, this should send up a little red flag.
Zukul Review – The Verdict
On the surface, it looks like Zukul is legit.
But looking an being so doesn’t necessarily make it so.
I would be somewhat weary of the fact that they do not work within the parameters of PayPal acceptable methods and proceed with caution if you choose to join Zukul.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you are going to have to get good at ranking online, making videos or doing whatever it is that you need to do in order to get others to follow you into the Zukul business opportunity.
There are a lot of people who will say Zukul is a scam because the network marketing industry has had a lot of bad rap. (Think about the Vemma or Ava Anderson drama)
Since Zukul is a young company, it could be a good place to start out and grow, however, it’s not something that I would do.
I personally would much rather promote my own company and build my own network of sites that make money online.
When you join a mlm company like Zukul, you run the risk of them being shut down and losing all of your hardwork.
There is no step by step way to make money online with a mlm company.
You are better off getting yourself an online coach who can teach you the CURRENT ways to make money online and how to create websites that will likely be futureproof sources of income for you and your family with no risk of the FTC shutting you down.
You are better off helping local business owners build their own businesses and helping local economy.
Zukul could be a long term business, but I currently work alongside some people who have been in mlm for a while and are shocked to see how fast the Job Killing Program has advanced their skills and their income.
See Job Killing Testimonials to see what I’m talking about.
Again, personally, I wouldn’t join Zukul because I don’t need their tools and I’m not into recruiting for a downline.
I’d much rather help people make solid business decisions that can help them and their families become successful for the long term.
If you have any comments or additions for my Zukul Review, please be sure to comment below.
If you are a current network marketer who is failing or who wants to leave mlm, then maybe it’s time you found a better way.
My personal recommendation is the Job Killing Program for new and experienced people.
You learn how to help others build their businesses locally and how to compete against (It’s actually hard to call it competition because you will dominate) companies like Homeadvisor and Angie’s list.
You get to choose who you work with, trains with over the shoulder training that comes with 24/7 support and get the most recent updates on how the marketing world is evolving with you out in front of the crowd.
Countless people have success.
You build your knowledge and skills and you sell them.
The skills you gain are sought after and paid for at very high levels.
You not only learn how to make cash through businesses but you also learn how to set up sites to help create more passive income with NO recruiting or downlines OR products to sell.
If you want to try and build a real online business that makes money….
If you join, let whoever talks to you (could be me, Dan, Brad….) that you were happy to find my blog that opened your eyes!
I hope to see you on the inside!
