Plannet Marketing Review – Is This Travel Company The Real Deal?
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 – 300 active distributors – $1,000/month
3 Star Director – 500 active distributors – $2,000/month
4 Star Director – 1,500 active distributors – $5,000/month
5 Star Director – 4,000 active distributors – $10,000/month
6 Star Director – 10,000 active distributors – $16,000/month
7 Star Director – 25,000 active distributors – $30,000/month
8 Star Director – 50,000 active distributors – $50,000/month
9 Star Director – 100,000 active distributors – $100,000/month

Between the Matrix Pay, the 10% Match on your personals and the Director Bonuses, it’s pretty clear that there’s plenty of money on the back end. If you’re a strong team builder and you have a knack for creating good culture, Plannet Marketing might be a very lucrative opportunity for you.

Should You Join Plannet Marketing?

Well, only you can truly answer that. The company certainly looks solid. Travel is a very marketable service that’s easy to talk about. And the compensation plan is generous and lucrative. All those things together should guarantee success, right? Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. At the end of the day, it is your ability to sponsor people into your business on a consistent basis that will lead to your success. This is why I recommend that you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can position yourself in front of prospects that are already looking for what you’re offering, you’ll have no problem getting leads online. And if you have an abundance of quality leads, there’s no telling how successful you can be.

Do you have an official website? Are you aware about the significance of marketing your website? Whether it is about building relations with the customers or about the low-cost marketing that has global exposure, you need to hire a dependable website marketing company. Given here are 6 important benefits of website marketing.

You Are Open All the Time:

With the help of this marketing you can make your business online round the clock. You do not need to worry about the holidays, about the odd hours and about the rough weather. If you have hired a professional company that can make your website visible high on the Search Engines then you can expect to have sales 24X7. People can place orders from the convenience of their homes.

Global Reach:

With the help of website marketing you can overcome the hassles of distance. You can sell goods in any part of the country which is not possible when you open a local outlet. You can widen your target market and sell internationally also. Hence global exposure is another major advantage of website marketing.

Cost-effective:

Just think of promoting your products with TV or Radio commercial or even through print media and then compare it with a promotional website. Website marketing costs only a fraction of other advertising modes. Moreover, with the rapid rise of internet users, this promotion is effective as well.

Building Social Relations With Prospects:

With the help of feedbacks and the promotion of campaigns on Social Media Platforms, you can build a long-term social relationship with your customers world-wide. You can also personalise offers to the customers by making their profiles out of their preferences and purchasing history. You can make the targeted offers by examining the preferences of your customers and increase the volume of sales.

Consciously or subconsciously, we are constantly influenced by the people around us, be it family members or friends or colleagues or even neighbour. Back in the days, when the internet was yet to be born, people had to interact face-to-face and make connections through word-of-mouth communication which worked out pretty well. Now it’s more of people-to-computer, but the idea is the same and much more convenient. Since social influence is ingrained in every single human, word-of-mouth marketing is a highly effective tool! Majority of us trust recommendations from friends and family, more than any other form of marketing.

1. Know Your Brand

You need to know your brand inside-out. Be clear about what your brand stands for, what are its values, what products or services you provide and how can it help people. This will help you present your brand in a way that your audience can appreciate. Trust can be easily built once you’re sure of what you are, since people dig confidence.

2. Prioritize Psychology Before Technology

A whole lot of time must be dedicated to doing research on the minds of your audience and what actually makes them share. Consumer behaviour needs to be studied on a regular basis since it changes according to new trends. This makes it easier to hit the right spot of your target audience. Anyone can send a bunch of emails, but going that extra mile by personally interacting with your customers and finding out what they expect from you can come in very handy. Find out what drives people to share content or stories and use these elements to your advantage.

3. Provide Top-Notch Products & Services

Give something extraordinary for people to talk about. Customers will remember your products and services only when you live up to, or exceed their expectations by delivering quality in what you sell and how you sell it. Your product, your ads, your sales pitch and everything else must make them feel you’re worth their time. Word-of-mouth marketing can be both, positive and negative. It can bring you down if your customers are unhappy with your brand and end up complaining publicly about their bad experience. You definitely want to avoid negative publicity!

4. Advertise Through Influencers

Advertising your brand through influencer engagement is indisputably effective in generating leads. This word-of-mouth tactic works wonders since these influencers might already have an influence on the audiences’ purchasing decisions. Influencers can range from famous social media stars from YouTube or Twitter or Facebook to even industry leads. Interacting online with a big brand, for example, can get you their followers and increase your visibility drastically. Pick relevant, popular and authentic influencer to take your social engagement to the next level.

5. Capitalize On Loyalty

Give your regular and loyal customers special incentives, additional offers and exclusive content that will make them feel privileged and special. They will definitely want to share their happy experience with friends and family and turn into loyal brand advocates that you’ve always wanted. Make your audience happy and watch them advocate your brand on social platforms! Don’t forget to thank them and show gratitude – helps maintain a good brand image.

MLM Training – Effective Invitation Techniques For MLM or Network Marketing
So I was really excited about my new MLM opportunity and I did not listen to my upline’s advice.

I picked up my phone and called one of my best friends!

“Hey man, I have something really important to talk to you about, I can’t explain it over the phone, so I am coming over to your place tonight!”

He said OK and I slammed down the phone! I thought to myself “Phew, that wasn’t so hard!”

Today, thinking back to what I did back then! “Boy, how stupid I was!”

Because I did no qualifying at all, I just went to my best friend’s home, blasted away like a machine gun while he listened to me blasting away.

And after I finally finished blasting away my presentation, flipping my flip chart, demonstrating how my skincare products, yada yada yada!

Man! I think back about it today, I can’t believe I actually applied some exfoliant scrub on my best friend’s hands! He must have been totally grossed out!

But I actually believed that he would either buy my products or join my business! That obviously did not happen. He just gave me the courtesy of listening to my presentation and at the end of it all, he said “It looks good. You try it first. I’ll think about it.” But he never bought anything from me, let alone join my business.

So people, you really really must not repeat my mistakes.

Invitation is simple, but you must have the right timing and know what to say! It takes a bit of practice at first, but everyone will be able to get it easily.

Now, let’s go back to the step by step process which is to first!

1. Do your names list.

With the advent of the Internet, websites, email and video DVD technology! we no longer have to call our contacts, get them out for a face to face 2 hour presentation and pray that they join our business!

2. Qualify them and sort out the 5 stars from the zero stars, the MLM Leaders from the Time Wasters.

3. Find out their needs using the F.O.R.M technique.

4. Start inviting them according to their needs! I am going to focus on step 4 now.

Technology has automated our “Qualification” process.

Instead of inviting our contacts for a meetup to present the business opportunity, all we have to do is pick up the phone, call their number and say this!

FOR POTENTIAL BUSINESS BUILDERS and MLM Leader type prospects:

YOU: “Hi Dennis, do you have a minute?”

DENNIS: “Yeh sure, what’s up?”

YOU: “I have some good news. I just started a new business and I am looking for some business partners. I thought you might be interested in looking at this.” DENNIS: “Ok, what’s it about?”

YOU: “Ok, tell you what, the business proposal is explained on my website. Are you able to check it later today?”

DENNIS: “Yes sure.”

YOU: “You got a pen and paper? Write it down.”

DENNIS: “Ok. Go ahead.”

YOU: “It’s (yourwebsite.com)”

DENNIS: “Ok. Got it.”

YOU: “Great, check it out later today and I’ll call you back tomorrow. Everything is explained clearly there. Now, time is of the essence, so promise me you will check it today alright?”

DENNIS: “Will do man. I’ll check it right now. Talk to you after i see it.”

Now, did that sound so hard? Can you pick up the phone, call someone and ask them to check out a website? Of course you can. It’s SO EASY.

Now if it’s someone you bump into on the street or at an event, just hand out your namecard and do this!

“Here’s my namecard and that’s my website address, I am looking for business partners, so if you are keen to explore a new business opportunity, check out my website today and give me a call.”

Or if you happen to have a DVD video CD with you on hand and you know that this is a 3 to 5 star prospect on your list, just pass them the DVD and say!

“Now this DVD contains my business proposal on video. Watch it today and let me know what you think. Now, I only have 5 copies so I will need this back from you after you have watched it today. I’ll be calling you to pick it up from you tomorrow.”

Some companies also have a magazine that is designed to explain the business opportunity to the prospects that you lend them to. You can also use that as a invitational tool.

So I hope you get my point here!

Today, we no longer invite people for a BUSINESS PRESENTATION face to face, in a hotel or at the office anymore. It’s too HIGH PRESSURE!

Instead, we invite people to:

1. Visit a websiteNow, that’s called LOW PRESSURE, HIGH LEVERAGE!

2. Watch a DVD Movie

3. Read a Magazine

Anyone can do it, and you can easily do that to anyone you meet.

Be it someone you met face to face at an event, or someone you chatted up online.

While you are sleeping, your prospect might be researching your website, watching your DVD business presentation or reading about your opportunity, products, company background on your magazine.

In this day and age, if your company does not have all these powerful invitational tools to make your invitation and presentation process totally 100% SIMPLIFIED, AUTOMATED and DUPLICATED!

Either you can continue doing it the OLD SCHOOL way which is! “I have to meet up with you and explain everything!”, then you go through a 1-2 hour flipchart presentation or laptop PowerPoint presentation and after that, it’s a 50/50 chance.

It’s either a YES or a NO. But you have already invested 2 hours and that time could have been spent calling another qualified prospect, giving out a namecard, DVD or magazine.

“Direct Salespeople Sell, Network Marketers SORT!”

What the NEW SCHOOL MLM Leaders do is to sort through their ever-growing list of qualified prospects by leveraging simple, automated, duplicable tools that do all the presenting and convincing for them.

Today, I will never meet up with anyone who has not gone through my qualification process. Until that suspect has seen my website, watched my DVD or read my magazine and they convinced themselves that they are really really interested in joining my business! I will not agree to meet up. Because I can be inviting more people into my qualification funnel.

Think about it like a funnel, that channels all the people I invite to go through that funnel, where they get qualified step by step and when they come out at the other end, they will be calling me. And all I have to do is answer their questions and clear up their doubts.

Then finally I just need to pop the BIG question, “So are you an A-Big Business Builder, B-Small Business Builder or C-Product User?”

So if you’re someone who is still stuck in the OLD SCHOOL days! and you feel that you will be happier if you can build your business using the NEW SCHOOL ways that I am talking about above, either you wait for your company to embrace technology and create these systems and tools or! you create those tools yourself!

Else you might want to consider looking for a company that does provide these systems.

As I mentioned earlier, inviting is so simple, that anyone can do it. And now, with the low pressure methods above!

I am sure anyone in MLM or Network Marketing will be able to invite a prospect to understand more about their business.

One of the things that I think most people in the marketing world take for granted is that everybody understands the fundamental role of marketing in business. Through my daily interactions with other business owners over the past several years, however, I have been amazed at the relative lack of understanding about the importance of marketing. More often than not, marketing is a back seat, tertiary thought that comes after their product/service and daily operations, if it’s even that high of a priority.

One of the phrases that my business partner, James Orr, has coined in the real estate investing realm is that “everything starts with motivated sellers.” Without motivated sellers, there are no properties to buy, rentals to put tenants in, fixer uppers to flip, or deals to wholesale. This is such an important aspect of real estate investing that it’s almost a mantra for the way that James and scores of other successful real estate investors run their businesses. The key to getting in touch with motivated sellers happens to be marketing.

I guess that a good place to start in this discussion is to define what marketing is. Google define tells us that marketing is “the process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion and distribution of ideas, goods and services to satisfy customers.” Marketing really does consist of more than what most people think it does. Marketing is more than just the activities that drive sales. Rather, marketing encompasses all the activities that seek to identify what consumers want and how to promote and deliver those goods and services.

Before an individual or company ever even makes the decision to produce a particular product or service, they should first spend the time to determine if there’s even a market for that offering. If there is a demand, they then need to figure out how to get that offering to the consumers that want it, how to tell consumers that it’s available, and how to price it such that there is money left over for a profit. This is all part of the marketing process, and really should occur before the product itself is even produced.

In more common usage of the term, “marketing” is often seen as only the promotional aspect of a product or service that is already available. This part of marketing consists of making the consumer aware of what you’re offering, and convincing them to buy it. There is a tendency in corporate environments to separate the marketing and sales functions into disparate departments, which is often a mistake. The purpose of the promotional element of marketing is to drive sales, and therefore the two functions are intricately connected. A good example of the disconnect between these two departments is when companies that sell capital equipment have vastly more people in their marketing departments than they do in their field sales force. Another example is when marketing and product development folks ignore the input from the field sales personnel. This input is often derived from actual customer contact, which most employees of large organizations don’t experience.

The prime purpose of one of my blogs is to test marketing promotions using a vast array of messages, media, and markets, which are often referred to as the three M’s of marketing. Before we conduct a test, we first do some background research to determine if there is even a market for what we’re considering selling, and we analyze whether or not we can at least break even on the marketing test using certain realistic assumptions about sales ratios. Pricing strategy is also something we discuss a lot before launching a new test. The actual development of sales copy, writing and placing ads, setting up measurement systems, etc., comes later in the process. Making sales and tracking metrics, then tweaking the marketing, comes next.

Sadly, many business owners don’t understand the importance of marketing. Because of this, they fail to plan for rough spots in the business cycle, such as off seasons, economic downturns, and other events. As the cliche goes, “failing to plan is planning to fail.” Every business should have a marketing plan of some sort, and it should be in writing. Companies that don’t “do” marketing will invariably fail.

In short, without marketing there are no sales. And without sales, there is no revenue. And without revenue, any business will quickly succumb to the statistics that show that nearly 2/3 of all businesses fail within their first 4 years.

Retirement plans are pretty popular as investment vehicles. Almost anyone who has ever worked for a mid to large size company has heard of a 401(k) plan. The plans tend to be generous and offer “free” money to participants, and employees have the ability to sock away a nice chunk of their own money as a nest egg for retirement.

Niche Equals Success My financial advisor clients have learned by working with me that targeting anyone and everyone about absolutely any issue is really the same as targeting no one about absolutely nothing. Many of my most successful financial advisors clients have selected 401(k)’s as one of their niche markets to help them stand out from the crowd of advisors who have no area of expertise.

The 401(k) market is a profitable niche for financial advisors for many reasons:

    1. Businesses that provide a 401k plans to their employees tend to be larger and more successful than small business owners with lower revenue and profitability, and these medium sized businesses tend to have greater longevity.

 

    1. Providing the investment choices in the plan opens a market to the advisor with regular monthly contributions to the plan that increase assets under management over time.

 

    1. Becoming an expert at specific company plan design can help you garner rollovers from 401(k) participants and their co-workers.

 

    1. The business owners themselves make great clients because they are profitable and may have personal investing needs outside their business.

 

  1. The business owner may also need assistance with investing the profits of the business.

The key to targeting this market is to invest time and energy into crafting a strategy that sets you up as the go to person for any company interested in either moving or starting a plan. You can do that by:

    • Target plans with assets between $5 million and $50 million. This is a niche that larger mutual fund companies would rather not target due to profitability.

 

    • Become an expert in 401(k) plans – read all that you can about the current regulations, the options offered by your company, mutual fund, or broker dealer, and reading books and publications that deal with the industry.

 

    • Find out from your own Ideal Clients which companies you would like to target and then become an expert in their plan design. Ask for help from your Ideal Clients and get introductions to plan participants who are within five years of retirement. Position yourself as the advisor they should approach when needed.

 

    • Learn the specialized distribution options offered by specific plans and give seminars to small groups of friends referred to you by Ideal Clients.

 

  • Call the person in this company who signs the 5500 form and ask if they are looking to send the plan out to bid.

While most advisors understand the value of getting referrals, most, admittedly. aren’t completing enough HVFDAs, high value fixed daily activities to get the consistent supply of quality leads from their wealthy clients, prospects, referral partners and centers of influence. In addition, too many advisors have no plan and learn their marketing, selling, closing techniques and referral strategies from the school of hard knocks. With proper mentoring on how to grow your advisory business, you can literally take years off your learning curve and save hundreds of thousands of dollars, in lost revenues.

So the question is how can I accelerate my financial advisor marketing strategy and attract more high net worth clients? To find the answer, I decided to pick the brain of Sid Walker in this years Affluent Summit.

Fundamentally, network marketing is an extension of traditional networking with people in that it seeks to join people based on spoken word advertising.

Practice your marketing spiel in front of a mirror. Do you look nervous? Do you sound like you’re lying? If what you’re saying is true, you should feel comfortable. If there is something that makes you look less than honest when you say it, then don’t say that! Stick to the things that make you proud of your business.

People are going to need a reason to trust you as a network marketer, and it is up to you and you alone to give them this reason. If you cannot think of a reason why someone should trust you with their investment, then perhaps you should find something else to do besides marketing.

If you make people who sign up for your downline in network marketing to feel like they’re becoming part of an inner circle, they’ll be more motivated. The most important thing to do is KEEP them feeling like they have special access both to you and your marketing strategies. Give them the tools they need to make you both great profits!

Know what your goals are. Successful business are made because the owner is constantly thinking about their company.

Education has always been the number one tool used to move up the chain. Even more so in the MLM industry. Individual MLM success is dependent on the strength of the skills a person has. Sometimes having one strength greater than the rest will cause an avalanche for the business. A strength is fine, but if it’s the dominant one it may lead to problems. A person can be missing out on a well-balanced business. This means if person A is great at social speaking, but lacks online skills, they will miss out on opportunities that are only available online. The same can be said for person B that is strong with online but not so good out in the public. How can you have skills that are sharp and balanced for your business success?

An honest audit of one’s skills and talents…
To achieve maximum MLM success levels, one must perform a deep and personal audit of their skills. This will help you find out where your weak areas are and to plot out the next steps to improve them. Everyone in the business wants life a little easier, so by taking proactive steps to sharpen your skills. You can make life easier on your side of the fence. Lying to oneself about a skill set will only hurt you and your efforts. It won’t hurt your prospects.

Here is how you can do a MLM success skill audit. Write down your top five or ten skills on a piece a paper or on a notepad on your favorite electronic device. Make sure these skills pertain to the business. Then rate your skills between 1 and 5, with five being the highest. Be completely honest, don’t be too critical of yourself either. All you are trying to do is find areas that you can improve upon for your business. Rate each skill with care and focus on how each skill helps you run your business.

At this point, you can look at the list and see if you are missing any MLM success skill that needs to be there. Are you missing a specialized skill that could help you? Maybe you can’t see what you’re missing and that is fine as well. If you are adventurous, give this same list to a loved one and have them rate you. They should have known you at least a year. Don’t be offended by their views, like an opinion, you can use whatever that is helpful and move on from it.
