WorldVentures brings a marketing opportunity to locals

US-based network marketing company WorldVentures has entered into Zimbabwe with membership now expected to be in the thousands on a rapid growth trajectory.


A report released earlier this year by The World Federation of Direct Selling Association showed that the direct selling industry is now worth $182,8 billion from 99 724 641 direct sellers.

In this question and answer with The StandardBusiness Tatira Zwinoira (TZ), WorldVentures country representative Colette Bowers (CB) speaks on network marketing and its prospects in Zimbabwe.

TZ: Why did WorldVentures choose Zimbabwe as a market despite the difficult economic situation?
CB: After success in South Africa, expanding into Zimbabwe was a natural next step for WorldVentures in developing the African market for its products. WorldVentures saw Zimbabwe not only as a fantastic destination for its DreamTrips, bringing more tourists to the country, but also the possibility of enabling Zimbabweans to experience travel both in and outside the country

TZ: The country operates on an informal market and network marketing as the business model fits well with the informal market. How can people who join benefit from your model in terms of generating extra revenue?
CB: WorldVentures enables people to earn an income as self-employed sales representatives promoting the sale of WorldVentures products. This can be on a full-time or part-time basis and can suit anyone’s lifestyle. WorldVentures uses network marketing as its marketing method and under the WorldVentures compensation plan, representatives are paid commissions on their personal sales of our products, Gold and Platinum DreamTrips memberships, as well as earning commissions on the product sales their team members make. The more memberships they sell and their team, the more income they can earn.

TZ:  How does the business model work?
The foundation of the WorldVentures sales strategy is network or multi-level marketing. This is a form of direct selling. WorldVentures acquires its customers through a network of independent self-employed sales representatives who are not employees and are remunerated on a commission-only basis through a multi-level marketing compensation plan. Representatives are compensated by way of commissions on the sales to customers of WorldVentures products and services. Representatives are also offered the opportunity to build a sales team by introducing other representatives and may be compensated for the sales of those representatives in their team. No compensation is given for the recruitment of other representatives. A representative enters the business by paying $99,99 and then a monthly fee of $10,99 for the Representative Business System, which is an online set of tools and a marketing website that allows representatives to administer their WorldVentures business.

WorldVentures relies on its representatives to sell products and to recruit and sponsor new representatives to sell products. While WorldVentures provides internet support, magazines, and other sales and marketing materials plus events and trainings, representatives are primarily responsible for recruiting and educating new representatives with respect to products, the compensation plan, and how to build a successful WorldVentures business. The sponsoring of new representatives creates levels in the network marketing structure. Individuals sponsored are referred to as a downline, who, if they then in turn sponsor representatives, create additional levels in the structure.

TZ: What is the kind of realistic returns those wanting to join can expect?
CB: WorldVentures does not guarantee a sales representative will make any specific level of income. Some representatives set themselves a goal to earn an extra $200- $500 a month but the success of each representative is dependent on their skill, time invested, effort and determination.

TZ: Where does the company see itself in Zimbabwe in the short and long-term?
Both our short and long-term goals for Zimbabwe are the same as for all our markets: our primary goal is always to provide excellent products to our members featuring high-quality DreamTrips and other valuable member benefits like the concierge service and net hotel rates. We also plan to develop and extend our support for our sales representatives in Zimbabwe to enable them to promote the products and in turn to provide first-class service to their customers.

TZ: What types of membership do you offer in the country?
CB: There is DreamTrips Gold whose enhanced product offering includes the benefits of DreamTrips, plus access to additional services and benefits. For an initial fee and then a monthly subscription fee, a member gets access to the website, as well as access to DreamTrips, weekend and week-long getaways, global hideaways, dining and entertainment deals and the DreamTrips Mall. One has access to DreamTrips exclusive deals, a travel search engine, flights, hotels, excursions, cruises, car rentals and the DreamTrips Concierge. Gold members can earn Rovia Bucks when booking travel through their DreamTrips websites.

DreamTrips Platinum is the same package as DreamTrips Gold but also includes access to luxury trips, properties and experiences. For an initial fee and then a monthly subscription fee, a member is given access to platinum DreamTrips (high-end luxury vacations), as well as access to all standard DreamTrips, and the White-Glove DreamTrips Concierge Service and other benefits.

    This is a pyramid scheme! Instead of promoting it you should be discouraging. This article is more of an advertorial.

    Wow so happy for WorldVentures and Africa. With the negativity & ignorance these days against legit companies that decide to market their products and services via other means, it i so good to see proof that it works and is legit
    I see that World Ventures according to the Direct selling new (DSN) are
    the 25th biggest company in the Usa
    the 45th biggest direct selling company in the world and
    the 2nd fastest GROWING Network Marketing company in the World.

    they are also in the forbes INC 5000 (currently #915)

    They have won 17 Travel Awards in varoius Catagories and continents since 2012. Beating out companies like,, eDreams, Expedia, Opodo, Orbitz ETC.

    All it takes is a bit of research and I am especially happy that the people that do reviews and decide that WorldVentures isnt for them, have at least gone on a DreamTrip themselves otherwise they couldnt give a valid review of the product WorldVentures offers.

    I am also happy these reviewers have compared The packages that Worldventures offers to see if they can find them cheaper (and took advantage of the fact that if they DO find it cheaper they get that Package for FREE)

    WV reps like to make people aware that WV is not for everyone .. its only for the chosen few who choose to better their lives so carry on with running your mouths while they get paid for talking about having fun.. you can either join them or watch from the bleeches but complaining isn’t going to stop what they are achieving so carry on looking like a hater .. Theywill never defend wv because cause they doing it with or without you so on behalf of the members…carry on… In order to receive you need to give first… you can’t live life with hands in your pockets god forbid you in the same space next year this time… and where will wv be…. and it’s members…. also they are making sacrifices now so that their kids have a future in this country.cos clearly our government can’t make sacrifices for us…open your eyes people.. (This is just my opinion)

    The 45th biggest company in the world according to Forbes in the BMW Group
    Stop feeding people lies
    I just scrolled through the forbes list of top 1000 companies of 2015, and WorldVentures isn’t anywhere on that list.
    Seems like its the 45th biggest company in YOUR box

    Norwegian authorities has found WorldVentures to be an illegal pyramid scheme and forced the company to cease all activity in Norway:

    It was revealed that the members travelled for only 5 % of what they paid for membership, in fact they paid for the right to get commission to sell membership to new members, not to get discount on travels. Most of the members has never travelled with WorldVentures. Considering that Norway is one of the richest countries in the world, just imagine how it would be in Zimbabwe.
