Worldventures – Don’t Join Until You Read This!!

Why WorldVentures? This is the question that many ask me when they inquire about what network marketing company I am with.

There are many reasons that I chose a network marketing company in the travel industry and many more key points that caught my attention with WorldVentures.

A good friend came to me and asked me to take a look at her travel MLM company. I immediately told her I had tried network marketing before and didnt want anything to do with it. After avoiding her for a bit, her persistence paid off. I trusted her but the idea of vacationing more with my family and friends peeked my attention more and I finally took a look at WorldVentures.

What I saw in the presentation immediately got me excited. The products just made sense! The questions I asked myself were, would I rather pay wholesale or retail for my vacations? and do I book travel online or know anyone else that does? Both of those questions were no-brainers. So, basically it boiled down to having access to hundreds of wholesale vacations, getting paid when people booked travel on my travel booking site and building a residual income just by helping others do the same. OK, Im in!! But, wait, whats the catch? The kicker was, once I found out how well the company was doing and how fast it was growing, I realized there was none.

There are many factors in my decision to join forces with WorldVentures and I will highlight the main ones that stuck out to me.

1 ~ Product Travel and Vacations. I dont have to convince anyone to go on vacation or want to save money. Most people want to vacation more and save money doing it but they dont know how! Also, we naturally talk about our vacations, so its easy to share because we already do it anyway. The product stands alone even without network marketing and that was critical in my decision!

2 ~ Industry Travel is the largest industry in the world and is expected to double over the next 10 years because of the Baby-Boomers retiring. What do you think they want to do in their golden years?

3 ~Timing – WorldVentures is about 5 years young and still in pre-momentum. Meaning, they are past the point where most MLM companies fail in the first 2 years of business. Also, about 11 countries just opened and huge market share is available. Know anyone in USA, UK, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Singapore, Israel, Cyprus, Sweden, Germany, Malta or The Netherlands? If you do, these regions are wide open!

4 ~Leadership – Co-founders, Wayne Nugent and Mike Azcue have a proven track record of success! Plus, the addition of Dan Stammen, network marketing legend, as the chief marketing officer solidified it for me. Dan built a sales team which created over 660,000 customers for a New York Stock Exchange listed legal services firm. He has brought his marketing expertise to WorldVentures and built an online system for reps to build their business.

5 ~Training Awesome training system run by Marc Accetta. Marc helped take another MLM go to #1 on the INC 500 list and has brought the same training system to WorldVentures. I thought it was going to be a RAH-RAH session but instead it was nuts and bolts to help build the business.

6 ~ Compensation Plan – A binary system consisting of only 2 teams. This means that you could end up with someone on your team that someone else puts underneath you! When I saw how this worked I was blow away because it is so powerful and helps build the team as a whole!

7 ~ No Monthly Fees All I had to do was sell 4 products and my products and business were free. What?? No monthly overhead?? I know, thats how I felt! Most people will quit MLM because they are spending more than they are making. Help 4 people save money on a vacation and your fees are waived!!

8 ~ Industry Reputation They are the youngest company highlighted in Success from Home 2xs in 3 years and Your Business at Home in the first year. Not too bad for a company only about 5 years old. They received awards from Carnival Cruise Lines and Funjet Vacations and recently I heard that SEARS is now using the travel booking technology to book travel for their corporate website (Hmmmmchoosing WVs booking engine over the other big travel .coms.. kind of shows how well it performs if SEARS would opt to go with it)

So, all in all, the above highlights are the main reasons I chose to join WorldVentures. Not to mention the the integrity behind the company as a whole and always giving back. Whether its raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters, creating a mission trip or helping change a childs life though their new Manifest Foundation, they seem to always have the right purpose in mind!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the people are cool and fun! WorldVentures is a company that offers vacations, FUN and the possibility to earn money helping the people you care about do the same! Works for me!!

Resorts 360 – Is It Just A MLM Scam

Resorts 360 is a network marketing company that offers discount travel services along with an opportunity to grow your own Resorts 360 business. Are you considering joining this company or are you already a distributor? Either way – I think it’s a fair assumption to make that by you reading this article you’re having some doubts whether Resorts 360 really is a great opportunity or if it’s just a MLM scam. And I can certainly understand these doubts, because how to know? And if you’ve heard about the 97 % high failure rate in this industry, you are probably also a bit sceptical. And that’s a good thing, because there certainly are some true concerns about starting your own Resorts 360 business. Now I’ll go through the pros and cons and then finally conclude whether Resorts 360 is a good opportunity or if it’s really just a MLM scam.

First the good

Many people love to travel, and therefore, you know that there’s a market for what Resorts 360 is offering. Also, people like to save money when they book their travels, and Resorts 360 claims that you can save 50% – 75 % off retail by booking through their services. Now that sounds pretty good, right?

To become a distributor and start growing your own Resorts 360 business you have to pay $498 and then about $250 each year to stay active. From every new distributor you find, you earn about $200 and you can earn up to $2000 per sale and furthermore get bonuses.

Overall, Resorts 360 looks like a good company, with a good servic, a market for the service, and also a chance to actually make some real money.

And now the bad

As every other company in the network marketing industry, Resorts 360 recommends their distributors to grow their business by working their “warm market”, meaning that they should talk to all their friends and family members about these great discount travel services and also this awesome opportunity to make money as well. Furthermore they will tell their distributors to hand out business cards, attend home meetings and use replicated websites. Remember that I mentioned the 97 % high failure rate? Well, these techniques only cause failure. At least your success will be very limited by using these techniques

Finally, the conclusion

Resorts 360 is NOT a MLM scam! But with that being said, it’s not a lottery ticket either. You can certainly succeed with your Resorts 360 business, but not by using techniques that have been proven wrong by that many people. In order to succeed you have to stop bugging your friends and family and then start educating yourself in marketing. You have to put time and effort into your Resorts 360 business, and if you aren’t ready to do that you should just use the services instead of wasting your time and money trying to grow a Resorts 360 business the wrong way.
