Virginia Beach Home Loans: February 2008

Do business with me and get a 3 day 2 night getaway for free!

Maybe, I haven't decided yet. I am working on a transaction with a high profile agent in the Plattsburgh, NY area; Andre LaFountain. Andre is a smart cat, he is heavily imbedded in real estate but he also has a few things producing additional income for himself on the side.

Andre has approached me about a travel agency opportunity. I am not sure of the details or of the pay structure. I do know that the business model is MLM. I'm not sure that is enough to disqualify it from being a legitimate opportunity. Of course, I have something else in mind for this program.

As a member of the orginization I will be able to give out vouchers for a 3 day 2 night vacation. The vouchers are intended to be used as bait in order to get people to attend the events that are held as a recruitment tool. It makes sense because it is a nice gift.

The cost is around $449.95 to sign up then $50.00 per month to maintain membership until you have successfully recruited someone then it costs nothing per month.

I am considering signing on for two reasons. The first reason is that if this can generate a small amount of additional income it could help to offset my advertising expenses. The second reason is because I think that A vacation voucher in the mail is a nice way to say thank you for the business; they'd make great closing gifts.

Let me know what ya'll think. Good closing gift? Additional revenue? Thanks.
