Cruise to Cash is a travel club that launched last year and offers deeply discounted travel packages. They now have a call center, but the rest of their marketing is done online, with the idea that you can set up an online business to sell the memberships for you at your website. You have to look at how the company is set up to evaluate whether you have a realistic chance of success with this program. Below is an overview of the costs, benefits, and compensation plan with the company. Costs - Memberships started at $477 for the Weekender and $977 for the Cruiser package without the call center.
With the call center now they are $977 and $1477. - Monthly fees for program members are $39.95 or $59.95 based on which level you choose for entry. - When using room voucher, you pay no more than $50 to activate it, plus any taxes on the room. Benefits - Members get unlimited vacations at deep discounts.
Destinations include places like Los Vegas, Hawaii, Mexico, and Portugal. - The program includes training and marketing materials as well as your own customized website. - Room vouchers are for well-known hotels with available rooms. You book rooms at places including the Sheraton and Marriot hotels for much less than the listed rates.
Payout Plan For your first two sales, the commission is split between you and your sponsor. After that you get 100% of the price of the package you sell. You also get 50% of the commissions from the first two sales of anyone who joins the program under you. In addition, Cruise to Cash pays you $10 or $20 monthly for everyone you sign up who continues to stay an active member. What People are Saying Since it was launched just last year, there any not a lot of reports yet of failure or success yet. Some members have reported signing up new members after a few days of advertising online.
As a compensation plan, the motivation to mentor people under you is not that high because after the first two sales you only earn $10 or $20 a month from each person below you, which may only help offset your own monthly fee. Conclusions Those who are already members of this travel program are marketing it as an opportunity to vacation and make huge amounts of money. There is not much data to substantiate these claims yet. By the time you read this article, the price of joining may have gone up $500 for each package. This will make it harder to sell to people, who may already be scaling back their vacation plans because of the lagging economy.
Some may also wonder if the program is just smoke and mirrors since it offers a 100% commission. The monthly fees could either be sufficient for the company and its founder or simply a way to guarantee that those at the top earn money from the members below them.
