Calculating The Point Value

You earn points with each purchase through  If you are a marketer, you also match your points by qualifying for the Marketer Match. At the end of the month, the resulting Community Payout Pool is divided by the total number of points to determine the Point Value.  Then, points are converted to cash and the process repeats.

While the point value is the decider of the value of your monthly points, you are the decider of the number of monthly points.   No one or nothing has more power than you to earn.

At the end of the month, Trunited takes the revenue of the company received from product sales and pays its bills.  The remaining amount of money in the account becomes the Monthly Payout Pool and is paid out to pointholders.  This is the easiest part of the math in the pay plan 360 algorithm.

So, if at the end of the month there is a total of $10 million in the Payout Pool, and the total number of profit points held by everyone who contributed is 25 million, you take $10 million and divide it by 25 million to determine a point value of 40 cents.

If the Payout Pool has the same amount of money ($10 million) but twice as many profit points (50 million) were distributed, then the value of a point becomes 20 cents.  You might wonder, “how would there be more points added but no additional money added to the payout pool?”

This is a fair question and the answer is discussed in more detail later, but suffice it to say that the Marketer Match, a pointholder’s ability to qualify for more points for creating loyalty for Trunited, is the driver of this and it just happens to be one of the most exciting aspects of the platform.  Trunited practices what it preaches to brands.  In other words, reward generating more loyalty by the best means possible – give pointholders the opportunity to earn more.  Pointholders can become marketers and join the most innovative loyal-lead-generating company on the planet.  Trunited doesn’t pay an ad agency to generate its loyal-leads.  Instead, it pays its own pointholders to fulfill its promise of loyalty and therefore becomes the greatest example of all for its product.

So carefully consider this:

You can earn as many points as you want. Earn as many or as few as you want – there are no minimums to qualify to earn back on your purchases.  If you decide to take it beyond that and share with others, you are only limited by your imagination as you create traffic for brands and build your point total. What does this mean?  It means that while point value is important, it’s not nearly as important in determining your success as your point accumulation is.  Check it out:

If you earn 1,000 points at a 20 cent point value, that’s $200. The same amount of points is worth $400 if that point value moves to 40 cents.  However, the point value shouldn’t dip and rise this drastically.  It should be relatively constant in its stabilized state.  The lesson here is to realize that pointholders differ from shareholders in that they thrive from controlling their success in Trunited by connecting as many loyal shoppers to the platform as possible and being compensated in the Marketer Match for that effort.

Here’s an example that will tie in to the previous one.  With the right amount of effort and influence, your number of points can expand exponentially. So while that $400 sounds nice, it’s nothing like the $2,000 that 10,000 points will get you, even at a lower point value.

So while the value of a point factors into your success, nothing will have a bigger impact on your earnings than the number of points you earn as a pointholder.
