I want to first say that Primo Vacations definitely is not a scam. It is a completely legitimate business owned by Rob Hanley, who also owns the popular, profitable and legitimate YourNetBiz network marketing company which has been around since 2005. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, my review of Primo Vacations will be broken down into 4 sections: The Product, The Cost & Compensation Plan, The Marketing System, and My Conclusion.
The Product: Primo Vacations product is a discount vacation club membership that includes condos (timeshare properties), resorts, cruises, and airfare/car rental. Trips can be booked either online or over the phone. Primo is simply a membership to a travel club that offers full-service vacation booking at substantially discounted prices. The product can be sold as a stand-alone or along with the business opportunity. The membership competes for the business of people who would normally either buy a timeshare or book their vacation online or through a travel agent. On their website, Primo states that their rates are much lower than rates you will find on sites such as Orbitz, Travelocity, or Expedia. Members receive a certificate for a FREE cruise when they become a member.
Cost & Compensation Plan: The cost for the travel club membership is a one-time fee of $697. This gets you a lifetime membership and full-access. If you are joining for the business opportunity, there is an additional fee of $39/month for the back office and marketing system.
Primo Vacations is a direct sales business, not an MLM, and the compensation is based on the 1-up G.P.T. (Get Paid Today) compensation model. For every $697 sale you make you receive a $500 commission with your first sale commission going to your sponsor (1-up). What this Vacation Booking means is that you will receive $500 for the first sale that each of your personal recruits make. This is perpetual leverage and allows you to earn from the work of others.
The Marketing System: If you join the business opportunity, you will receive what I believe to the best online marketing system on the net today. The system is very clear and persuasive. It allows a prospect to either purchase right then or to request a call-back from the company. This is refreshing that the company is actually willing to talk with prospective business partners and answer their questions. In addition to the marketing system, Primo Vacations also provides Personal Business Assistants (PBA’s) to all of their associates. These PBA’s will call and email your leads for you! This frees the associate up to market, and eliminates the part of the business that most people hate…calling their leads. This service is unique, is not an outsourced service, and does not cost the associate.
Conclusion: To conclude, Primo Vacations is a legitimate network marketing business opportunity that is owned by a company that’s been in business since 2005. The business is priced very reasonably and has an in-demand product that has value and can be sold on its own without the business opportunity. If you are looking to either add a business to your portfolio or are looking to start your first home-based business, and don’t want to join a Multi-Level Marketing company, Primo Vacations is definitely worth checking out.
