Plannet Marketing Review – Is This Travel Company The Real Deal?

Posted on Posted in general

So lately, I’ve been getting a few messages about a new Travel-based Network Marketing company called Plannet Marketing. And chances are if you’re reading this, you’re probably thinking about joining and you’re doing some last minute research on the company. If that’s the case, then look no further. In this Plannet Marketing Review, I’ll cover all the essential details you’ll need before you join. With that said, I do want to disclose that I am not a Plannet Marketing distributor. In all honesty, it really doesn’t matter to me one way or the other if you join so you know you’ll be getting a truly unbiased review.

Who Is Plannet Marketing?

Plannet Marketing is a company that sells travel through a Network Marketing business model. The company is based out of Atlanta, Georgia and as of this writing Plannet Marketing is just over 6 months old. The company was founded by Donald Bradley, formerly of YTB and Paycation Travel. Bradley brings with him 20 years of experience in Network Marketing. Before starting Plannet Marketing, Bradley was the Master Distributor and #1 Income Earner in Paycation Travel. He literally had everyone in Paycation in his downline and was responsible for bringing in the company’s top leadership group. I’m not sure what happened, but around the time Craig Jerabeck and Barry Donalson left 5linx and joined Paycation was the same time Bradley decided to leave. Maybe he didn’t feel good about those guys joining and being sponsored by the company when he was the Master Distributor. Who knows? And who really cares? Regardless of the reason, it looks like Bradley was willing to walk away from everything he built to start from scratch again. Overall, the company looks pretty solid. And while it’s too early to tell if they’ll even be around for the long haul because they’re only a few months old, Bradley and the other members of the Corporate team bring a ton of experience in Network Marketing and Travel, which is a good thing.

How Do You Make Money With Plannet Marketing?

The actual compensation plan provides several ways for distributors to get paid. But the crown jewel of the compensation plan is the 3X9 Matrix. With a Matrix model, it’s critical that you get a spot early on if you want to capitalize on spillover. If you’re positioned underneath a strong builder, you can benefit from their efforts as they place people under you while they’re filling up their Matrix. With a fully filled 3X9 Matrix, you’ll have 29,523 distributors underneath you. If they’re all active and you get $4 monthly from each distributor, you can make up to $118,092 monthly. In addition to your Matrix pay, you can also earn a 10% Match on the Matrix pay of your personally sponsored distributors.

In addition to the Matrix, the company provides monthly bonuses to Directors. Here’s a simple breakdown of how the Director bonuses work:

1 Star Director – 100 active distributors – $500/month

2 Star Director – …

Vacation Certificate Incentives – Creative Marketing Incentives

Posted on Posted in general

Businesses are really getting creative in their marketing efforts during this economic hardship our nation is facing. Retail clothing stores have been seen giving customers a 3 day 2 night Las Vegas hotel stay to the first 100 customers that come down to their store, no purchase necessary. The same retail store also ran a second promotion where if a customer would spend $ 100 in the store they would upgrade their Las Vegas hotel stay with two round trip tickets tickets. Car dealers are advertising free 2 night hotel certificates in many resort city destinations to customers that just come down for a test drive. When the customer purchases a vehicle, they upgrade their hotel stay to a 7 night cruise for two to the Bahamas or Caribbean. Vacation certificate incentives can work for virtually every industry.

Realtors are using vacation certificates to bring in more potential buyers to their open houses. Insurance agencies offer vacation certificates to customers if they call for a free quote. Then they upgrade the customers who purchase policies. With vacation certificate incentives you can create very effective employee recognition and loyalty programs, customer retention programs, referral programs, customer loyalty programs, lead generation program, customer appreciation programs, etc. When a businesses use incentives in conjunction with their existing advertising and marketing efforts, they can see a 30% increase in response rates to existing advertisements. Vacation incentives help business ring in more paying customers from their existing marketing efforts and from their repeat and referral business.

Vacation certificate incentive companies can be found by going to Google and entering the keywords vacation certificates or even vacation incentives. You will find hundreds of companies to choose from. All businesses should be aware that 99% of these vacation certificate incentive companies work on a business model called "breakage". "Breakage" works like insurance. Insurance companies charge you a monthly fee, in the hopes that you never go to the doctor. These vacation certificate incentive companies do the same thing and charge you anywhere from $ 1.00 – $ 150.00 per certificate. They do not have any real contracts with hotels, cruise ships, airlines, etc. but instead just get the commissions anytime they book a customer in a vacation at the published rack rate (the same rate you find on Expedia or Travelocity). So let's say you purchase 100 7 night cruise certificates at the going rate which is around $ 30.00. You just paid $ 3000.00 to give 100 of your paying customers a vacation certificate. The travel agency takes out $ 500 of the $ 3000.00 and pays the sales rep a commission. Then they take $ 500 or so for their take and put $ 2000.00 in a reserve account to pay for the vacations when your customers try and redeem the vacation certificate. The problem is that $ 2000.00 is not going to cover 100 7 night cruise getaways for two. They bank on only a small percentage of your customers to redeem the vacation …
