Having been around this industry awhile and having had the privilege of learning from Daren Falter, the guy that wrote the original book on how to choose a network marketing company, I can tell you that you’re likely to get it wrong the first few times…
This is why you’ve probably been in quite a few programs in a short amount of time – you’re trying the right business that is the right fit for you.
If you get anything out of this, remember this…
Choose a company (affiliate product, etc…) based upon business reasons. Leave your emotions out of it.

The Criteria For Choosing the Best Network Marketing Travel Business
Why are you even looking for a network marketing travel business? Do you enjoy travel? Do you want to get paid doing something you love? What will it mean to you to have your own travel business?
It’s NOT only about the money!
Remember, choose a network marketing travel business for business reasons to give yourself a fighting chance at success.
Here’s some criteria to keep in mind….
Public Companies – You’re not important as a distributor – only the shareholders are.
Valuable Products and Services – Network marketing travel companies have a reputation for selling junk travel certificates and/or travel programs. And in some cases, this reputation is definitely earned.
Make sure you choose a network marketing travel business that has REAL products that REAL people who are interested in travel would want to buy. Make sure that whatever it is you’re selling is competitively priced.
Ask yourself, why would anyone want to buy_____? If you can’t answer that simple question, you’re gonna have a hard time getting people interested in what you’re selling.
If you want to be taken seriously, remember this… It’s all about giving value, not just about making money. People can sense when you’re only in interested in making money off of them.
Remember your reasons for wanting your own travel business?
Well, if you want to hit your goals (buy a new home, pay for your kids college expenses, be debt free, etc…), you’re going to have to put the odds of success on your side and the biggest way to do that is to choose a network marketing company that has valuable products/services that people want to buy.
The last criteria, which is an important one, is to think about HOW you want to get paid. Do you want an mlm network marketing travel business? Or do you like to make the one-time larger commissions?
MLM vs Affiliate
This may offend some people, but here it goes…
MLM Travel Companies
MLM works well in some industries (vitamins, cosmetics, etc…), especially those where there are consumable products.
MLM doesn’t work well in a lot of industries, especially where there’s no consumption of products – like travel.
Remember, mlm refers to how you’re paid – on levels. The reason you’re paid on levels is because you’re building a distributor sales force and you’re creating volume. You’re paid on the volume of your organization. Your sales force is supposed to keep producing volume via autoship of consumable products.
There aren’t consumable products in the travel industry. This is why you’re not going to see the level of duplication in a network marketing travel business as you would see in a network marketing nutritional company.
If you’re not seeing duplication in your network marketing travel business, then odds are you’re making very small checks.
Travel Affiliate Programs
An affiliate travel program is typically a single tier payout. Some network marketing travel companies have 1-ups and 2-ups. This is where you pass up some sales to your sponsor or the next qualified person in your upline.
The biggest pro of an affiliate travel program is that you don’t have worry about building a huge downline to make decent money. There are travel programs that have higher payouts, so it takes less effort to make more money.
Naturally if you’re interested in making more money with same amount of effort, you’ll want to go with a travel program that pays you bigger commissions.
There are a lot of network marketing travel companies, but only a few have good solid products and even fewer have a well-designed comp plan to make you a nice livable income.
Should you go with an mlm travel company or should you stick with higher payout travel program? The choice is yours. Now you know what to look at when choosing the best network marketing travel business.
