So there’s a fairly new company in the Industry that I’ve been hearing about called Surge 365. Chances are if you’re reading this, you’re probably thinking about joining, or at the very least you’re looking into them to see if it’s a business that’s credible. If that’s the case, look no further. In this third party Surge 365 Review, I’ll cover all the important details you’ll need to know before you join. Keep in mind that I’m not a Surge 365 distributor so it really doesn’t make a difference to me whether you join or not. This is critical because you’ll be getting a real third party unbiased perspective of the company and the opportunity.
Surge 365 is a company that sells travel through a network marketing business model. A few weeks ago, some people on Facebook sent me messages about their launch. After taking a look at it, I told myself that it looked extremely familiar. After going through some of the videos, and seeing who was leading the company, I realized why it looked so familiar. The company’s CEO Scott Tomer is the very same Scott Tomer who was the CEO of YTB. In fact, all the guys leading the corporate team come from YTB. There’s Coach Tomer, Chris Cokely and James Tackett. I was never involved with YTB, but when they were new to the Industry they were absolutely crushing it. I remember meeting people who were making some serious incomes and travel was the big thing since no one else was really doing it in network marketing. Truth be told, I like these guys. I spent the first 8 years of my Direct Sales career in a company called Primerica. It was there that I met Coach Tomer and Chris Cokely. There were always solid leaders. Years later, I met James Tackett because his video company created the videos for a company I was aggressively building. Of course, just because I like them doesn’t mean the company will be destined for greatness… but having a good feel for the people steering the ship is a major plus. If you couple that with the fact that Travel is an $8.1 Trillion Industry, and that everyone loves to travel, and you have the beginnings of a business that makes sense.
In order to become a Surge 365 distributor, you have to pay a $350 initiation fee, and a $60 monthly membership fee. Once you personally enroll 3 members, your monthly fee is waived. The actual compensation plan pays several ways. You can earn a 100% Match on all your personally sponsored distributors. Once you qualify as a Team Builder, you’ll be able to earn $1,000 for every 7 sales in your Team Builder group. Once you have 100 active distributors in your Team Builder group, you’ll also earn a $10,000 bonus. And for every additional 100 active distributors, you’ll be able to earn an additional $10,000 bonus. In addition to those bonuses, depending on your rank in the company you can also earn up to $80 per sale in your group in upfront bonuses, and up to $6 residual income per active distributor in your group. The company also has some attractive incentives for people who hit special ranks. As you move through the Director positions, you can earn additional bonuses up to $12,000 a month, and qualify for various car programs. And if that wasn’t enough, for leaders who hit the absolute top rank in the company of Presidential Director, you can earn a one-time $1,000,000 bonus. There’s definitely serious money in the compensation plan, as well as perks you can have for being in the Travel Industry. With that said, I want to encourage you to review the official compensation plan documents so you know how to hit ranks and how to structure your team so you can maximize the compensation plan.
The only concern I have about the actual compensation plan is that it looks almost identical to the one YTB had when travel was their only product. The compensation plan was criticized and they got into hot water with the FTC. According to the FTC, since almost all the commissions were coming from initiation and membership fees, and not from actual sales of product, YTB was operating as a card mill and a pyramid. I’ll be honest, I don’t know the specific ins-and-outs of what happened between the FTC and YTB, but the company’s momentum all but died once the dust settled. Eventually, 90% of their field leaders left and they had to restructure themselves as a totally different company selling e-commerce and calling themselves Zamzuu… or something like that. My suggestion is if you’re serious about building a long-term business, find someone in your upline leadership team and ask them what makes Surge 365 different from YTB, and what is being done so Surge 365 doesn’t suffer the same fate as YTB?
Well… only you can answer that question. The company certainly has a sexy product in Travel. The people leading the company are obviously experienced being that they led a similar company in the past reach huge heights. The compensation plan is lucrative, as long as you know what you’re doing and you have a solid work ethic. And if you like being on the ground-floor of a new company, then Surge 365 might be exactly what you’re looking for. So with all that in place, it should spell out success once you join, right? Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Even if you have the very best opportunity on the planet, if you have no prospects to talk to about it, you’ll make no money. If generating leads online is something you want to do, then you need to learn Attraction Marketing. Once you apply Attraction Marketing and combine it with your new Surge 365 business, there’s no telling how big you can build your business.
