Synergy Marketing Groups Kicks Off Its Fall Event Series With a Resounding "Bang". First Stop On The "World Wind West" Launch Tour… Charlotte North Carolina.


October 4, 2008

With the downturn in the US economy dominating recent news, one wouldn’t expect a start-up travel company like Platinum One Destinations (P1D) to be steaming ahead like the boom times never ended. Not surprisingly, when times are tough, with layoffs mounting and job prospects dimming, families seek new ways to create income. In fact, it’s well known that the Direct Sales industry’s largest expansions occurred during economic recessions. Look closer and the reasons are obvious. With hundreds of thousands of new households feeling the pinch, the need to supplement income is that much greater. With the job market turning-up empty, a home based business with a low start-up cost is an attractive option. Flexible hours, no commute, and high earning potential are just a few reasons.

Platinum One Destinations (P1D) and its network of independent business owners (Marketing Associates) are experiencing the surge in interest in home-business opportunities. In fact, P1D Associates are well positioned to capitalize as more and more people look to break free from the insecurity of the job market.

To propel its growth Synergy Marketing Group, P1D’s exclusive sales arm recently launched its “World Wind West” Tour in the blue granite state’s beautiful city of Charlotte, North Carolina. It’s the first of three major events with Dallas and Los Angeles on deck in the coming weeks. The event started with Charlotte’s top country radio station (WSOC) broadcasting live from the event’s Marriott location. The energy was high as members and guests gathered under the outdoor canopy. The FREE offer of a personal netTrav website got everyone excited to learn about the company and the income potential as a P1D business owner. Over 154 websites were given away at the event, a number that even surprised the company’s executive team.

Company heads Lloyd Wilson, Nitsa Nakos, Priska King, Bob Biss and Dave Heidel headlined along with several top producing P1D Associates who shared their success stories and strategies over the two day event. Lloyd Wilson kicked things off Friday evening with an anecdotal segment covering the past, present and future of P1D. He closed with the widely anticipated announcement of the netTrav website giveaway.

Friday’s session was fun and casual leading into Saturday’s more intensive training segments. A brief business presentation was followed by an invitation to learn the ins and outs of turning the netTrav giveaway into a six-figure home based business. “Going in, we felt very positive about this promotion and we knew our guests would react with excitement. The energy and enthusiasm could not have been better. People really feel P1D can help them turn the corner financially and we are proving it every single day.” said Priska King, Synergy co-founder.

Saturday’s session started with the nuts and bolts of how the business works. Top Associate Lisa Moore demonstrated the travel savings the P1D memberships offer by booking a trip to Las Vegas, saving $200. “By actually showing our guests how we book trips and save, they witness an immediate tangible example of exceptional value P1D brings to the marketplace.” said Moore.

The atmosphere was noticeably more focused and business-like on Saturday as the P1D leadership explained the how-to’s of generating a full-time income marketing netTrav memberships and P1D’s premium memberships. Melissa Adams, another top producer started with the “Getting Started Right” training to ease new members and guests into the day-to-day mechanics of the business.

Carol Ann Martin, a single mom from Florida who is already earning a six figure income with P1D, shared the P1D “Blue Print”, Synergy’s step-by-step start-up guide for brand new associates. “It’s the foundational training that I wish I had when I started nine months ago. It really makes it easy for those who are new to the business. You don’t need any special education or training.” said Martin.

After Saturday’s lunch break, the afternoon jump-started with an announcement showing the next version of the social networking site, as well as enhancements to the company’s compensation plan, a key advancement that places more money into the pockets of P1D Associates. Top money earner Carol McCord shared her secrets for building fast-growing team while crowd-favorite Lisa Moore, a four year veteran, introduced several simple concepts for building for the next event.

To support associates attract an even greater number of guests to the Dallas event, the company released a powerful new direct mail piece that showcases the business with the credibility and professionalism a skeptical marketplace demands. Free raffle tickets promise to boost attendance even further. Visit for details.

To close the Charlotte event, top builder Ken Wimmer gave away $1200 in cash. Robin Orkins, the lucky winner received a P1D Silver membership and is now looking to build a fast-growing P1D business. Congratulations to Robin!

Ken showcased his intimate understanding of the compensation plan with a detailed explanation. He shared his unique “placement” method for maximizing profit, strategies any P1D Associate can employ. Ken’s powerful philosophy emphasizing the need to help others as the fastest means for reaching one’s goals captured the hearts of the audience. “You don’t want to miss Ken at the Dallas event” says Nitsa Nakos, SMG Founder and CEO Saturday night, 45 members and guests gathered at a local Japanese hot spot and enjoyed time to build new bonds and banter about business and life.

Regional Event Leader and Summit Host, Wesley Pennington expressed a special thanks to all the volunteers who helped organize and run the first event of the World Wind West Tour. “We can’t thank everyone enough. “The members of our team are without a doubt the heart and soul of our entire operation and we want them to know that,” said Pennington. “These events are an excellent way for current P1D members to grow their businesses and attract others who are looking for more freedom, more money, and more security. We feel so blessed to be surrounded by such a dynamic group.”


Congratulations to Mike Mele and Debbie Williford. Mike didn’t know what to expect when he decided to attend the event, but liked the idea of a free website. Within a week, he upgraded to P1D’s premium Gold membership. Debbie Williford was brand new to the business and went Gold right out of the gate. Congrats to both of Mike and Debbie.
