My 20 Dollar Travel Business

Purpose

For $20 per month this business offers a travel search engine similar to Expedia, Priceline, or any other travel sight. The difference in their search engine is that the hotel rates are discounted. Most of them will save you about 10% to 20% off, some as high as 75% off. 

Business owners get access to this search engine, plus the opportunity to recruit other business owners and make a monthly residual income through 10 levels deep in a 2×10 forced matrix with the highest percentage paid out on the 10th level.

4 Review Criteria

What I look for in a Network Marketing company such as My 20 Dollar Travel Business are the following criteria:

  1. Does it have a system that I can can follow?
  2. Will I have the ability to brand myself?
  3. Will I have a mentor or a support team?
  4. Does the Company stand the test of time? Have they been around at least 10 years or more?

Does My 20 Dollar Travel Business have a system that I can can follow?

They do have a little bit of a system, but I have seen far better, especially in this day and age of internet marketing. In today’s internet marketing world, you should expect a system that sells your MLM business opportunity and/or your business’s products in an automated fashion.

The replicated website they give you is beautifully designed with a picture of a beautiful beach in the background, and they give some great information that your prospects will need to know, but I feel the layout is too noisy. It is easy for your prospect to get lost, which could in turn cause them to leave the website and not sign up for your business.

Can you create your own funnel web page that markets My 20 Dollar Business? You could, but it gets tricky, they require approval of your own self-created marketing tools that are not their own and from my experience, most MLM companies with this rule are unlikely to approve your own marketing tools.

The company highly emphasizes sharing the opportunity with friends and family. While this works for some people who have a high influence over their friends and family, it doesn’t work for the majority of people, hence the 95% failure rate. In 2020, internet marketing should be the main way to grow your downline.

They do offer decent emails with decent ad copy that you can use, but most of them are written to friends and family and very few are written in a way that would be effective to cold email leads. If you want to write your own emails, you must get their approval and we all know where that goes.

Will I have the ability to brand myself with

My 20 Dollar Travel Business?

With overemphasis on sharing with friends and family only, and with needing to get permission for any of your own marketing materials, it is extremely difficult to impossible to brand yourself. When everyone has the same replicated website, you look like everyone else and with only sharing with friends and family you are doing the same thing as everyone else. It’s hard to stand out and attract lots of prospects on auto-pilot with such strict and rigid rules.

Will I have a Mentor or a Support Team with

My 20 Dollar Travel Business?

This depends on your upline. If your direct upline is a proven leader who teaches, supports, and encourages his downline, then yes, you will have a mentor and your success will be a lot easier and faster. But, also make sure your sponsor is also someone who believes in 2020 online marketing methods. Steer clear of any downline who discourages modern business building and only encourages warm marketing methods only.

As far as a support team, the closest that My 20 Dollar Business has to a support team is a customer department. I don’t really consider them to be a support team. As support team should be a forum of other business builders who help each other out where you can ask questions and someone with experience will answer. You can also answer someones question and everyone grows together.

Does the

My 20 Dollar Travel Business

stand the test of time? Have they been around at least 10 years or more?

The quick answer to this question is “No”. My 20 Dollar Travel Business has been around since 2019. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. There are some advantages to joining at the ground floor level, but there is also bigger risk in the company going out of business. Nothing sucks more than building a huge downline with a 5 figure monthly income only to have it taken away from you overnight. Only 10 percent of new businesses last 5 years, and of those that survive, only 10 percent of those survivors last 10 years or more. This is true with brick and mortar businesses, and it’s true of MLM businesses too.

Conclusion

Some may be asking if My 20 Dollar Travel Business is a scam.  No, it is not a scam at all, but I wasn’t really impressed overall.  If I were to give an overall score to My 20 Dollar Travel Business, I would give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

There are some good aspects of My 20 Dollar Travel Business Opportunity and there are definitely bad aspects, it really depends on your preference. It just didn’t add up for me because of a lack of a good system to follow, the difficulty in branding myself, the lack of a support team, and the lack of time in business. 

However, if you are looking to start an online business and you want a compensation plan that’s very simple and easy to understand, where you can brand yourself and have an easy to follow system, with no PV requirements to get paid, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate.
