Think about it for a minute. Are there really Online Travel Business Opportunities? Well, the answer is yes, absolutely. The hardest question to answer for most people is who, what, where and why ?
These are exactly the same questions we had here, and so we decided to search out the answers. We looked at numerous online travel business opportunities. Some were not opportunities at all, some were over exaggerated opportunities, and one stood out above the rest. The criteria we used on reviewing online travel business opportunities were simple. We wanted a company with a proven track record, a real future, an easy to use system, extensive connections in the travel industry, a strong management team, and very importantly a company we could make money with and grow with. As travelers we wanted to be able to book our own travel and earn a commission. Basically we wanted to get paid to cruise and travel. But we also wanted to be able to grow our online travel business and keep traveling. We also wanted to present the opportunity to others as we traveled. Sounds impossible, but it is not. It is being done right now.
Ok , so who is the company. The company that we feel is the best online travel business is YTB Online Travel.

Why YTB Online Travel? YTB is a top 35 US travel seller, and based on current rate of growth is set to sell $1 BILLION of travel in 2008. YTB has proven their stability and paid out several million dollar bonuses to its top Directors, which may set a network marketing industry record. YTB Online Travel Business has grown impressively over the years. The company is 7 years old and has just entered exponential growth. They’ve grown from 3,209 reps in 2003 to 8,348 reps in 2004, 21,399 reps in 2005, 60,063 reps in 2006 and 132,700 plus reps in 2007. At present they are well over 140,000 reps.
YTBI has five times more retail customers the RTAs purchasing their travel. This is one of the highest customer to RTA ratios in the direct sales industry. This fact alone makes it hard for anyone or any authority to not recognize the YTB Online Travel Business as a legitimate retailer of travel no matter how the network marketer model is structured.
YTB Online Travel Business is in its seventh year and the majority of all RTA’s that have ever been with YTB are still active. That is, every RTA including all six previous years according to YTB Online Travel Business. That is a phenomenal record in direct sales.
Although you can start earning fast in the YTB Online Travel Business and earn bonuses up to a million dollars as many Directors have, over and above the commission structure, YTB Online Travel Business wants to be known as the large, long term residual company. It already has more than 100 Reps earning six figures annually with many earning $50,000.00 a month or more. In fact, six are earning six figures a month. That’s right, per month, not just in a year. Of course the phenomenal RTA retention rate contributes to the ease of creating a large, long term residential income. The above incomes are extra ordinary and being made by a small number of established Directors of YTB Online Travel Businesses and are not indicative or guaranteed as to what you will make. However the YTB Online Travel Business is still a great opportunity for anyone who likes to travel, wants to get paid to cruise and travel, wants to earn additional income (YTB has a program that guarantees $6,000.00 first year income) from an internet home based business, and would like to share this opportunity with others.
In the nearly ten years that we have been researching MLM or network marketing we have never found any company willing to guarantee “BOTH” the first year profitability and the residual income derived from ones efforts.
In fact, much to the industries detriment, companies all too often made outrageous income and life style claims to lure the unsuspecting into programs where true success was all but impossible except for a select few. These few would be paraded across the stage, given huge bonus checks to perpetuate the dream, or more aptly put, the myth of a success full home based business.
The blame was always assigned to the individual. The most egregious of companies were closed and or failed but the industry as a whole supported, promoted, and taught the flawed approach of “through enough against the wall and some will stick” or “if they fog a mirror sponsor them”. With very few exceptions the industry has never focused on insuring success with a valid business plan nor have they promoted retention by guarantying that the average person would have a chance to leverage their success through duplication.
Sadly, until now, most companies actions showed they cared little for the individual once their application fee had cleared.
Well, we’ve succeeded in making a short story long. We’ve made our point. This is the first instance we’ve found where a company has addressed the above mentioned problems. In our estimation they’ve found a solution. Their product, “travel”, may not be a uniquely differentiated but it can be marketed to every single niche market without exception.
The company is 7 years old and has just entered exponential growth. They’ve grown from 3209 reps in 2003 to 8348 reps in 2004, 21399 reps in 2005, 60063 reps in 2006 and 132700 plus reps in 2007.
Simply put, this is the easiest opportunity we have ever found to market. One that we can finally say, with full confidence, that any person joining can make a profit without any reservations.
YTB Online Travel Business looks at every RTA who joins the travel company as a group waiting to happen. Each RTA is a center of influence and brings a warm market to YTB. The company has an infrastructure in place to help them with family reunions, church groups, fundraising trips, etc. Over 60 percent of YTB’s cruise business are groups and YTB Travel is working on tools to help its RTA’s with land group sales also.
