Marketing Boost Review: Free vacations as a marketing tool?
Marketing Boost provides no information about who owns or runs the company.
To get that information you need to click off-site to Marketing Boost’s webinars. There it’s revealed Marco Torres is Marketing Boost’s founder.
On one of Torres’ many FaceBook profiles, we additionally learn Marketing Boost launched in 2017.
The company is tied to Digital Experts LLC.
According to another of Torres’ profiles, he’s based out of Florida. There is a Digital Experts LLC incorporated in Florida, which I’m assuming is one and the same company.
Advertising Boost appears to be a clone launch of Marketing Boost:
Not sure what the story is there but Advertising Boost doesn’t exist anymore. A visit to Advertising Boost’s website domain redirects to Marketing Boost.
Advertising Boost’s website domain registration was last updated on January 31st, 2022.
While he does have a marketing history, I wasn’t able to pin down whether Torres has an MLM history.
Read on for a full review of Marketing Boost’s MLM opportunity.
Marketing Boost’s Products
Marketing Boost markets a platform that bundles vacations to client sales offers.
No matter what kinds of products or services you sell, NOTHING seduces a fence-sitter like throwing in a free vacation when they say YES to your offer, upsell, or referral request.
Your products and services become irresistible when your prospects start picturing themselves relaxing on a sun-soaked beach… gazing at the endless neon of the Vegas Strip… or sampling local cuisine at a picturesque Mexican plaza – all on someone else’s dime.
And being able to provide your new buyers with fantastic vacations feels great too… especially since it’s not YOUR dime. (It’s ours.)
Once you welcome your new client or customer on board, you’ll set them up to receive a certificate to redeem their vacation package. They’ll then have 7 days to activate their certificates.
Once activated, the certificates are valid for 18 months, and certificate holders can book and travel any time within that timeframe.
Marketing Boost claims use of their platform will “instantly Boost Sales by 60% or More”.
Access to Marketing Boost’s platform costs $197 a month.
Marketing Boost’s Compensation Plan
Marketing Boost affiliates are paid on $37 marketing platform subscription sales.
These sales can be made to both retail and recruited affiliate subscribers.
Marketing Boost pays commissions down two levels of recruitment (unilevel):
- 40% on level 1 (personal sales)
- 10% on level 2 (sales made by those you personally recruit)
When a Marketing Boost affiliate generates 200 active marketing platform subscribers, they qualify for a Car Bonus.
The Car Bonus pays $500 a month towards a “dream car lease”.
If a Marketing Boost affiliate generates and maintains 400 active marketing platform subscribers, the Car Bonus is raised to $1000 a month.
Joining Marketing Boost
Marketing Boost affiliate membership appears to be free.
Marketing Boost Conclusion
$197 a month is for access to Marketing Boost’s platform – this begs the question, who’s paying for all these vacations?
This question is addressed on Marketing Boost’s website:
So if I don’t pay for these trips, who does?
We work closely with industry insiders who have information not available to the public about unsold premium accommodations at must-see destinations in the U.S. and beyond.
We work with providers to secure these unsold rooms as exceptionally low prices.
Why? Because property owners know they can recoup their costs with in-house dining and room service, casino earnings, spa services, valet parking, and other add-ons.
That’s income they can’t earn if a room is sitting empty. So they’re happy to practically give away their unsold rooms just to bring in revenue!
Are they though?
There are costs to maintaining a room that’s occupied. If these accommodation providers don’t recoup on other costs, they’re potentially losing more money over letting the room go vacant.
Marketing Boost’s website doesn’t mention any strings attached to the vacation stays.
One thing to keep in mind is the vouchers are only for accomodation. Everything else, including flights, must be paid for by the client.
Marketing Boost don’t represent otherwise, I’m just pointing it out because it’s natural to see “vacation” and think everything is covered.
While I’m inclined to question the validity of Marketing Boost’s pitch, they do seem to stand by their offer.
Try Marketing Boost for yourself today – if you don’t agree that this is the easiest, most effective way to get more YESes and maximize your income, just let us know within the first 30 days and we’ll happily refund your entire investment.
If the vacations are a disaster, that’s going to reflect poorly on businesses using Market Boost.
I can’t see that lasting so I’m inclined to take Marketing Boost’s offer at face value.
One potential danger in Marketing Boost is if the platform is used to promote itself.
For their part Marketing Boost state;
The platform is about helping you make more sales and grow customer and employee loyalty – it’s NOT a standalone business opportunity.
Unless it’s explicitly forbidden, I don’t see why someone can’t market free vacations to sell Marketing Boost itself.
What’s the difference if I attach Marketing Boost to a third-party or itself as an income opportunity?
This of course would open up the prospect of Marketing Boost operating as a pyramid scheme (i.e. the majority of subscribers are also affiliates).
I didn’t notice this overtly happening, but there sure are some wonky Marketing Boost income claims out there:
Fun fact, the above video was shot in 2020. At the time Caujuan Mayo claimed to be one of Marketing Boost’s “top affiliates”.
The link he provides in the video today redirects to some crypto scheme.
I get the impression Marketing Boost might be viable if attached to a “traditional” business. Although I question the long-term sustainability.
Beware of shysters using Marketing Boost as a tool to push questionable MLM opps.
