MyFunLife versus World Ventures Smackdown!
Okay, not really! :) Until we found My Fun Life, one company I had looked seriously at was World Ventures – and recently I was asked why I chose My Fun Life over them.
To answer this, I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of the 2 companies, but not a full review.
Let me start this with two quick things.
First is, I highly respect World Ventures and while I admit (as a MyFunLife Representative) I have a certain bias, I will strive to be fair. They’re a large, successful, and respected company.
Second is this: I like things that are simple to explain and understand. Simple is duplicatible. Duplication is a key to success in Network Marketing. As you’ll see, World Ventures is far from simple to explain – with tons of mismatched information online.
So let’s dive in to our MyFunLife versus World Ventures cage match! (again, not really)
MyFunLife versus World Ventures Products
Both companies offer legitimate, money saving products, that are similar but different.
My Fun Life has 3 Products, our ChaChing booking engine, FunTrips, and FunCondos. ChaChing can be used by anyone you share your link with, and you earn a commission (amount varies). FunTrips and FunCondos products are for members only.
World Ventures has 3, 4 or 5 products, depending on where you’re looking!
This is my single biggest complaint, and it comes up over and over again as you do research on the company.
Go find 3 different reviews online, and you’ll find 3 different versions of the products and compensation/cost.
Even information from the company is confusing: The World Ventures site lists 3 products, while the compensation plan lists 5 products:
- DreamTrips Life
- International DreamTrips Life
- Luxury DreamTrips
- DreamTrips U
So, what’s the truth? How many products do they have? Honestly, I have no clue. The WV website only lists the DreamTrips, DreamTrips Life, and Luxury DreamTrips.
The other 2 aren’t mentioned at all.
Regardless, all appear to be for paying members only.
MyFunLife versus World Ventures Cost
My Fun Life has one flat fee – your $25 membership fee. That’s it. No sign-up fees at all, no extra fees for back office or marketing system.
World Ventures has several fees for their various products, and unfortunately it’s really, really unclear whether there is an overall fee just to join the company. It appears it is, and it’s about $365.
Further, it seems each World Ventures product has it’s own cost just to join, as well as a monthly fee associated.
- Product Name, Signup cost, Monthly fee
- DreamTrips $199.95 $26.99
- DreamTrips Life $199.95 $54.99
- International DreamTrips Life $199.95 $49.99
- Luxury DreamTrips $999.99 $99.99
- DreamTrips U $99.99 $20.99
So, regardless of the number of products, signup fee, or monthly fee – it’s far more expensive to join World Ventures.
MyFunLife versus World Ventures Products Compensation
It’s beyond the intent of this article to go into a detailed breakdown of each company’s compensation plan, but let’s take a brief look and you’ll see the point I get too.
My Fun Life Compensation has 4 ways to earn:
- Commissions from the ChaChing booking engine,
- the 3×10 matrix (where you’re paid on everyone below you in the matrix*),
- coded bonuses
- check match on your personal enrollments.
* Greater personally sponsored leads to higher levels ‘unlocked’.
World Ventures is a bit more complex and harder to explain.
It’s based on a binary compensation, with a personal enrollments factor that triggers payouts.
See, each product ‘sold’ carries a “credit” with it. For example, a DreamTrips monthly membership is 1 credit, a Luxury DreamTrips is 3.
Each ‘cycle’ is 3 credits on your left and a matching 3 credits on your right, and pays out up to $15 depending on the rank you’ve achieved. These reoccuring charges become your monthly residual income.
And, for each sale you make you earn a direct commission off the initial fee.
Of course, you have to qualify for your residual income…. and your maximum pay is dictated by your qualifying level.
The most basic qualifying level is called Senior Representative, and you have to have 30 active customers on both left and right legs.
World Ventures also has some additional bonuses, such as the Director bonus, DreamCar bonus, and DreamHome bonus.
Honestly, if you think I’m being deliberately obtuse, you can check out the World Ventures Compensation Plan for yourself!
MyFunLife versus World Ventures Conclusion
For me and my family, we knew we wanted to build a LifeStyle Business and a Travel MLM was the vehicle we wanted to find.
My Fun Life came along at the right time, with products and compensation that are easy to explain. When it came down to MyFunLife versus World Ventures, there was one deciding factor:
Simplicity and ease of understanding is KEY in this business! If it’s complicated, people won’t understand and what they don’t understand, they don’t get involved with. What’s hard or complicated to explain – even if YOU are good at explaining it – is hard to find people to duplicate it! I don’t want to have to find people with Phd’s to explain the pay plan!
Is World Ventures a respected, successful and growing company – sure it is!
But for me, when looking at them, a 23-page compensation plan with lots of exclusions and “oh, you only get paid up to 65% of such-and-such” is a MAJOR turn-off for me.
That’s why, over months of coming back to them to look again and again, I never pulled the trigger.
It appears the high sign-up fees are used to discount travel back to you. If not, what’s a $200 sign-up fee for?
My Fun Life, at $25 a month only, with great travel options, and easy and exciting to explain, was the clear winner.
