Paid marketing has been far too expensive these days for most business owners and entrepreneurs. So a path has to be found which can grow the business by a budget-friendly marketing plan. The solution to this problem is Influencer marketing which has been discussed before.

Activating Your Account
Activating your jocial account is the first step you will take towards earning. Though, before earning, you have to spend some initially on it. this section will guide you through the steps that you should follow to activate your account.
- First login to your account. You will be directed to your dashboard/profile.
Click on the activate button present on the top screen
- There are a total of two subscriptions available. The first one is 60$ and the second is 240$. You can choose one of the subscriptions as per your will. We will deal with the details of both the offers in further sections.
- When you choose a deal, you will be asked for payment. Payment can be done using bitcoin or jocial. The second option is preferred in case you are in touch with an active user who has jocial balance.

There are a total of three ways to earn in jocial.
a. Camping Bonus
It is the limited earnings that you get through ad boosting. You can do it via social media or Google as discussed earlier. For a 60$ subscription, the maximum profit limit in 3 months is 60$. Similarly, for 240$ subscription, the maximum profit in a year is 540$.
b. Matching Bonus
You get more bonuses/earnings by increasing your community length. Refer jocial to more people and get 10% of their earnings each month/day. Consider a case in which you referred to 20 people among which let’s say 10 became active jocial members. If each earned 60$, you will receive 10% from each i.e. 6 dollars from each individual. It has a simple idea, “refer more, earn more”.
One thing to note is, one cannot earn more than the subscription limit per day. The subscription limit is equal to the worth of the subscription. This means if you subscribed to 60$, you can’t earn more than 60$ daily. The same applied in the case of 240$ subscription.
c. Super Matching Bonus
It is the bonus one can obtain if referred members also refer other people. Consider you referred ten people and these ten again referred ten each (i.e. a total of 100) members, you get 10% from the one you referred and also 1% from those the referred ones refer. This is the main earning source in jocial community since it does not have any limit.
Note that when you are referred by a member, you should choose “Left” or “Right”. This is not a big deal as you can choose any of those sides. It only indicated that some referred members are on my right side and some on the left.
Jocial keeps on providing new and exciting offers and bonuses to keep members engaged. Among these, Global Power Bonus is one that was offered in 2021 and very quickly gained popularity. This offer ended on 10 June 2021 but stay tuned cause the jocial community keeps on providing similar offers from time to time.

Jocial: Real or Fake
One might be interested to start their earnings from this platform. Before we do that, let’s have a quick review of some facts about this company.
The first thing that has to be noticed is that jocial is multi-level marketing(MLM) company that hasn’t been mentioned clearly on its website. MLM is not legal in some countries, including Nepal. So, if you belong to these countries, legal actions might be taken against you. Further, there is no refundable ‘subscription fee’ that has to be paid in order to earn on the platform. This also provides tiered commissions to referring members. Doesn’t it suggest this might be a Ponzi scheme pretending to be a social media advertising platform?
One fact to be noticed is that payments and withdrawals can only be done using bitcoins. This payment uses SHA 256 Algorithm; practically impossible to trace and is highly unsafe. Also, the phone number given during domain registration could not be found on the true caller. This suggests the number might be fake. Also, see the domain update. Domain was registered in 2008 and was a parked domain since 2020. It seems the website is just 1.5 years old. Can such earning website be parked for 12 years and receive no update in that long time? Neither has it been updated since 2020.
Another thing that tinkles is that the company has been incorporated by Jamie March. This person is completely unavailable on any social media platform. Neither has anyone ever claimed to be the founder of this community. The office address used for the registration is incomplete. It only includes the building name and no official number. Also, the same address has been used by different companies
Ok, now I am myself confused if it’s a real company or just another money laundering website. If you ask me I should anyone invest in this platform, I will say don’t. there are more platforms where you can have good earnings and are surely not fake. Why not invest in such websites? Why take risks? Though it’s completely a sole decision investing on Jocial. Still, stay alert!!
