The travel and leisure industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, particularly as developing nations become more prosperous and their growing middle classes have more disposable income for the finer things in life. Many of these people, particularly those from countries with weaker currencies, find travelling to be a very expensive affair. With the exponential reach of the internet and social media sites over the last decade many people have started to mix business with pleasure by turning to MLM Travel Companies.
Becoming a Sales Representative for any MLM Travel Company can become quite expensive if you don’t know what you are doing. There are literally hundreds of websites, programs and special deals that can be used to get yourself setup for less than $200. All you need to know is:
Where and what you are looking for; and
How to prioritize your spending.
Free or ’30-Day trial’ Websites
One of the first things you will need is a Landing page or website from which to capture prospective recruits to your downline. Companies like Get Response offer Free or 30 day Free trial sub-domain hosting, which means they will host your site and may even provide email auto-responders for free. This is an ideal way to get started, and give yourself a chance to gain momentum by generating traffic to your page before the switching to the paid options.
Social media sites like, Facebook, MySpace, GlobalShare and even some professional business networking sites like LinkedIn are all free to join. Facebook allows users to generate their own ‘pages’ which can be used to advertise your business or product for free. By linking and creating circular references to each of these sites you can direct your friends, colleagues and visitors to each of these sites for more information and eventually to your Free Landing page.
Many of these sites allow Paid Per Click (PPC) advertising, which means you only pay for prospects who clicked on your advert. Coupled with the ability to target age, sex, user interests, country or origin and other criteria; as well as the ability to set your budget to as low as $5; PPC advertising is a very effective and cheap way to drive traffic to your Free Landing page.
Other free advertising
You can also join forums and Internet Article sites (subject to their participation rules) to generate interest in what you have to offer.
Other paid advertising mediums
Advertising and the cost of driving traffic will be your greatest and ongoing expense. Other tools like GoogleAds are more expensive than social media forms of advertising, but are very effective in getting your advert at or near the top of the Google search results page.
Once you have a prospect you will need to be able to communicate with them by with email or telephone, probably even both. Again, there are many free options available, like:
Email. G Mail, Hotmail, Yahoo or other free email services.
Telephone. Skype, Viber, Facetime or a messaging app like Whatsapp, Messanger etc.
Once this final critical function has been setup, your are finally ready to sign-up with your MLM Travel Company and start doing business.
This method will allow you to start your MLM Travel Company for less than $200. While momentum will be slower to generate, it is a great option for those people who have a tight budget or don’t fully trust the MLM environment.
