A Review Of Pro Travel Plus – Can You Really Succeed Selling Travel?

An Unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review – Should You Join?

So there’s yet another Network Marketing company in pre-launch that’s getting some buzz. The company is called Pro Travel Plus, and if you stumbled on this article you’re probably doing some research on the company before you join as a distributor. If that’s the case, look no further. In this Pro Travel Plus Review, I’ll cover all the essential details you need to know before getting started. I’ll also go into the actual compensation plan so you’ll get a pretty good idea of how to get paid. Before moving forward, I do want to disclose that I’m not a Pro Travel Plus distributor, nor have I used their services. I say that to let you know that it really doesn’t make a difference to me whether you join or not so you can be sure that you’ll be getting an unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review.

Who is Pro Travel Plus?

Sadly, there isn’t much information available on the actual company. I scoured the Internet and really couldn’t find out who the actual owner is or who is on the corporate team. I also couldn’t find out where the company is located. The only thing I discovered after viewing some videos on YouTube is that a gentleman by the name of Seth Fraser is the company’s CEO. It seems that Seth Fraser has been around the Industry for a while. He was affiliated with That Free Thing, and more recently he was involved with Kannaway. From the looks of it, Pro Travel Plus is offering members a discount on travel. Members also have access to a $500 voucher they can use on airline tickets, hotels and car rentals. Again, since as of this writing there isn’t much information available and since their portal isn’t live yet, there’s not much details on their travel portal I could find. The good news is the company is positioned in the Travel Industry. Travel is an $8 Trillion Industry and is expected to grow past $15 Trillion over the next 10 years. From a marketing perspective, it’s easy to talk about and sell travel because almost everyone either travels or would love to travel more. With that being said, knowing who the principals are behind the company is extremely important if you’re looking to plant your flag and build a long-term business.

How Do You Get Paid?

I couldn’t find an official compensation plan document so it was through several distributor videos that I was able to see how Pro Travel Plus pays their distributors. In order to get started, you have 3 different options to join: 1 Star ($69.95, $34.95/month), 2 Star ($269.90) and 3 Star ($469.90). You can also start at 1 Star and promote yourself to 2 Star and 3 Star through building a team of active distributors.

There are 5 different ways to get paid:

Powerline Bonus – As people join the company, they are time stamped and the company can track who joined the company after you. Distributors are positioned down one straight line and as people get started, you can earn 5% down 5 levels regardless of who enrolls them.

Fast Start Bonus – You can earn a one-time bonus as people join your personal organization tree. As people join at the 3 Star level ($469.90 cost), you’ll earn $30 on your 1st level, $5 on your second level and $3 on your third level. If people join at the 2 Star level ($269.90 cost), you’ll earn $25 on your first level and $5 on your second level. And if people join at the 1 Star level ($69.95 cost), you’ll earn a $15 bonus on all your personally sponsored people.

Coded Infinity Fast Start Overrides – Once you hit 3 Star, you’ll earn between $1 and $2 on every person on your team through 3 Generations of 3 Star Leaders.

Residual Income from 2X14 Matrix – The company has a matrix whereby you only have 2 positions on your 1st level and you’re forced to place every person you enroll underneath other people once your top 2 positions were filled. Placement is critical in a matrix compensation plan because if you join early, you can potentially have hundred of distributors under you that you did not bring in. A completely filled out 2X14 Matrix pays out over $25,000/month if everyone in your matrix is active.

Matching Bonus – based on your rank, you can earn between 2% to 15% Match of the Matrix commissions earned by people in your personal enrollment tree down 6 levels. You’ll earn a 50% Match on all your personals.

From the looks of it, the compensation plan looks pretty lucrative. Again, if you’re serious about building a long-term business, get your hands on the official compensation plan documents so you can see for yourself what you need to do to earn income.

Should You Join?

Well… only you can truly answer that. If travel is your thing and you like the idea of joining a start-up company, then maybe Pro Travel Plus is for you. Statistically, start-up companies in the Network Marketing industry never make it past 5 years. Of course, some companies do assuming there is strong and experienced leadership running the company. Because they are in pre-launch there’s no way of finding out who is behind Pro Travel Plus so it’s hard to tell if they will be positioned for the long haul. One thing is clear… if you do decide to partner with Pro Travel Plus, you’re going to need leads to build your business. Without leads, you can have the greatest opportunity in the world but if you don’t have any leads to talk to, you have little to no chance of succeeding. This is why I suggest you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can leverage technology and learn how to generate leads online, and you can implement the building system your upline leadership has in place, there’s no telling how prosperous you can become.

Dressing up your MacBook Pro 13 is one of the best ways to go about protecting your investment. The first thing we suggest is getting a durable case. Quick, easy and it doesn’t require much in the ways of installation, your Mac can be instantly protected from well you.

There are a lot of god cases on the market at the moment, it seems like everyone’s getting in on the Apple accessory craze. But what actually works? Here are just a few suggestions from us one what works well. This is not the end all of your options but it’s a great place to start.

Mobile Edge SUMO Sleeve
This is the last sleeve case you should ever need to look at. Built with the MacBook Pro 13 in mind, this protective nylon sleeve, secured by a closure on the front cover. The soft interior provides ample protection during travel with its lightweight, easy and comfortable design making travel easy, allowing you to carry it by hand or in any bag taking up just as much room as you MacBook Pro and no more.

But invest today in one form of protection or another, your MacBook will thank you, and there is nothing wrong with suiting up.

Contemplating Joining a Travel Network Marketing Business Opportunity? Well, I Have Some Information

Imagine what you could do if you had more time and extra cash?

What would most people do if they had more time and more funds?

Chances are, with more time and funds, most people would opt for travel, whether on vacation, leisure travel, or on a cruise.

From the records of the WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council), travel as an industry, tops US$7 trillion a year. This represents one of the largest industries in the world. With such a substantial industry, there are also a growing number of Multi-Level travel businesses.

As a network marketing professional looking to get into the travel industry, how do you choose a business opportunity that’s right for you?

Your ultimate aim is to choose a genuine travel business opportunity that is an ideal fit with your personality. Ideally, you want a travel home business opportunity that makes sense to you and will make you money in the short and long run.

Below, I’ve listed some factors you may find of use when researching a travel business.

Choosing a travel Multi Level organisation and likely sponsor

1. Before you even delve deep into the business, have a look at their website. Does the website look credible? Is there Legitimate contact information on the site? How long is the domain registered for? This in itself can set the tone for the kind of professionalism you can expect when dealing with this company.

2. Find out who the owners of the travel organisation are. Do they have sufficient experience and a proven track record? The long-term growth of a company goes hand-in-hand with good leadership.

3. Is the company a member of any major, credible association, e.g., Better Business Bureau, Direct Selling Association, or a Travel Marketing Association? This is to determine the company’s credibility and dependability.

4. Choose a business with a proven track record of sales; preferably one with increasing sales of travel products or services in the last few years.

5. Of the travel business’s revenue, how much is from travel-related product sales, and how much is from recruiting, if any. If you have the greater part of revenue coming from recruiting, that’s a red flag for you.

6. What percentage of the organisation’s revenue do they give back to reps? You want to get into a company that rewards its agents generously, but also maintains a sound financial base for the long-term survival of the company (for your benefit of course).

7. What are the sign-up fees and inventory requirements? Being in the travel industry, do you have any physical product requirement?

8. How do you break even? What kind of downline composition do you need to be able to break even and get into profit?

9. What kind of systems are in place within the travel business? Who handles orders and processes the payments on behalf of the travel customers?

10. Is the pay plan easy to comprehend? Can you easily explain it to others?

11. Grasp the products or services you will potentially be marketing on behalf of your travel Multilevel organisation. Will you be marketing cruises, vacations, dream trips to dream locations, opportunities for people to become travel agents, or a grouping of these? Knowing this helps you to market your products or services more effectively, and helps you match up the products to the right market.

12. Be one hundred% sure the travel product or service has the potential to add value and enhance people’s lives. Would people buy the travel products or services, if the business opportunity wasn’t attached to them? Would you be interested in the product if you weren’t selling it?

13. Find out about your potential mentor. What do they bring to the table? I do not believe it’s enough to just give you access to a travel MLM business opportunity. What other skills will they teach you? Your success will in a large part depend on your own determination and efforts, as well as your sponsor’s mentorship.

14. Given the economy as it is, the price point will be a key determining factor. However, price point must not compromise the quality of the travel products being sold.

15. Is there a duplicable process? Franchises, such as McDonalds have far greater success than most conventional business because of their proven systems of duplication. Does your travel organisation provide effective and easy-to-use recruiting tools that will allow you to recruit others, as well as help them be successful? Whether marketing online or offline, make sure you have a good duplicable system.

Select a travel network marketing home business opportunity and guide that you feel the most comfortable with. Then find and put into action a proven marketing strategy you’re comfortable with.

Your Travel Biz, GRN, Traverus, Pro Travel Network and Coastal Vacations are some of the many Multilevel travel companies out there. Each of them offers travel-related products & services, and they are all distinctive in their own way. The onus is on you to be choosey. There are, similarly many scams, and you would not want to get conned.

Traveling the World: Quick Tips When Travelling Near and Far

Before you embark on your next trip, be sure to read the tips and advice written here in this article. Whether you are leaving for a weekend getaway or a month-long European vacation, these tips are sure to help keep you organized and prepared for whatever action comes your way.

  1. Write out a summary of every single thing you’ will need before the things you will want. A good way of getting sidetracked is forgetting a number of the important things that you meant to bring along (toiletries, comb, etc.). Avoid shelling out your ‘spending’ money on tooth brushes, soap, etc… when you can use this on souvenirs, food, drink and activities.
  2. Look at the weather and understand what the local climate is going to be like when you visit. Too often (believe me, I have done this way too many times) people do not prepare ahead and arrive with shorts & flip flops when it’s cold & rainy… You will either have a horrible time roughing it, or spend a bunch of cash on new clothes you didn’t plan on buying.
  3. Research legal laws as well as other customs that are specific towards the area you are traveling. The last thing you need is to offend anyone or get into trouble ignoring a law you knew nothing about (don’t get caned in Singapore!). It’s always smart to stay informed, so make certain you know the general rules & regulations prior to exploring. Being up to snuff on local customs always helps when interacting with the local people.
  4. If you are traveling with someone else, be sure to stay close, together, as you stroll through town. Keep your mobile phones ON & ready… and avoid separating from each other. Every town has the criminals that prey on tourists and travelers as we are easily identified in foreign countries. I am not saying you need to be paranoid, but just keep your head up and take notice of your surroundings. For more travel advice on the local spots, check out taxi travel blogs and portals.
  5. When traveling to remote areas by car, there is not always a convenient stop at every mile marker. When you are traveling with children, in particular, this can be very problematic (especially with screaming babies!!). Take along a sheet so you can drape it over the open doors of your vehicle… This will give some semblance of privacy when making that emergency pit stop on the side of the road.
  6. One of my personal favorites: wear sunglasses if you want to be left alone on a plane! Most people will simply mind their own business and not to talk to you if they see you wearing sunglasses. Wearing sunglasses during a flight can be a great way to get some peace of mind… or sleep after a long weekend or trip.
  7. When traveling to a foreign country, become familiar with the local law enforcement. Find out how to call police in the event of an emergency. Also look for the closest police station to your hotel. In the event you do need help, knowing this information will come in handy.
  8. When traveling internationally, make sure that your data roaming is turned off on your wireless devices– including your cell phone. Data roaming charges can get very expensive. Instead, take advantage of free Wi-Fi hotspots available at places like airports, hotels, and restaurants. You can also use your free Internet connection when available to make cheaper calls through applications such as Skype.

Traveling the world can provide some of the best experiences you will ever encounter. The opportunity to meet new people, try new foods, and see distant lands that you’ve only seen in movies, can change your life. I’m all for spontaneous adventures, but just make sure to plan a little bit ahead so you can eliminate the confusion and chaos, while focusing on the best things in life!
