“7 IDEALS” Methodology Overview & Invitation

HOT NEWS: I'm working on the "7 IDEALS METHODOLOGY" video presentation, the blueprint (infographic & guide), the 7 ideals page, and a brand-new contest. For more information, join the newsletter and get exclusive bonuses and discounts for a lifetime.

Overview & Invitation

This methodology is the end result of over 30 years in business and marketing and I'm working on it since late 2021.

A systematic and structured approach to developing and implementing proprietary and custom-made strategies, processes, and campaigns for small businesses and startups.

It’s a methodology specifically designed to help you compete efficiently in the overcomplicated marketplace.

It’s a proprietary system that looks at your business as a whole and gives you a clear path – a roadmap to follow – a solid and flexible strategy and action plan.

It involves a set of principles, processes, models, frameworks, tactics, and techniques that you can use to achieve and surpass your business goals and objectives.

It’s not just a methodology to promote your products and services, that’s only one tiny aspect. It’s a methodology that helps you design, run, manage, and grow businesses. From an initial idea to becoming a leading name in your respective industry and beyond.

Starting small is actually the biggest benefit in this multi-dimensional, fast-changing marketplace.

Small businesses are personal, we get to interact with our customers face-to-face, and serve them at the highest level possible.

We know we can’t compete with giant corporations on budget, resources, or technology, but when it comes to delivering user experiences… guess… who’s the boss!

It’s a carefully designed, strategically organized methodology that helps small business owners understand the market inside out, create a competitive advantage, and develop unmatched – innovative products that consumers can’t enjoy and recommend enough.

WealthyAffiliate - Why Does Everyone Want to be an Influencer? (most make no money) VIDEO:

I know we tend to look up to those that we view as public figures, and that is the case with influencers now on social media. There is a problem though. We perceive these folks through a much different lens than who they actually are, and we also perceive these folks with "followings" to be much more successful than they are.

I was asked to research another MLM opportunity, in the travel industry this time. The website I landed on mentions …”Make more, Travel more, Save more”, “a business opportunity designed for people like you”



What is Surge365?



They say …”An awesome home based business selling a unique and valuable wholesale travel membership.”

#1 Way of earning with Surge365 – Vortex – No selling – No recruiting

When you join you get your own version of the Vortex (patent pending).Your job is to share it with the world. When people buy through Vortex, whether it is a trip, car rental or a cruise, you get paid, it’s that simple.

#2 Personal Travel Agency

A fully functional agency through their sister company, Pro Travel Network. With a few simple trainings, you can start promoting cruises, tours, destination weddings and earn big bucks.

  • Refer 7, $1000 bonus

Marketing Plan

  • Every member gets 10 EZ Travel Buttons worth $250 to give their best friends
  • You can achieve the position of a Team Builder Leader if you make 3 personal membership sales (in your first 30 days) or alternatively you can make 7 group sales in any combination/timeline (with 3 personally membership sales)
  • You earn $20 to infinity on every member sale in your Team Builder Group (TBG)
  • You receive a 100$ Income match on all personally enrolled members
  • As a Team Builder Leader, you receive $50 on members sales.
  • Every 7 sales within your TBG gives a $1000 bonus plus 7 sales X $20 = $140 total of $1140
  • Every 100 sales in your TBG = $10K bonus plus 17 X $1000 bonus (approx) = $17000 bonus plus override bonuses another $3000 equals $30K bonus

  • Who are my prospects


SBA – Surge Business Associate

As an SBA you are selling the ultimate travel solution

  • Package 1 – access to a full-service travel agency
  • Package 2 – adds Vortex plus to the travel agent opportunity
  • Package 3 – is Vortex Platinum with additional benefits such as the opportunity to earn reward credits and exclusive wholesale travel pricing.

You will be building a team of SBAs to help you leverage the efforts of others while also helping them achieve financial freedom. You have access to sell the following products

  • Travel agent – $99 license fee – $39.95 monthly fees – Commission $15
  • Vortex plus – $199 license fee – $49.95 monthly fees – Commission $15
  • Vortex platinum – $399 license fee – $59.95 monthly fees – Commission $30









That article was a marathon for me to complete. The official Surge365 website does not include many details, apart from a few promotional videos.

I managed to find the compensation plan (3 different parts) on distributors web pages and Vortex on other travel agents.


The key thing is that Surge365 official website pushes the MLM opportunity. The compensation plan has many bonuses for top performers and if you are good at recruiting you will get exclusive rewards.


I can’t evaluate Vortex properly but before you join you should investigate further if Vortex is a better alternative than Expedia, TripAdvisor or other bookings/travel search engines out there. Which hotels/cruises/car rental companies are included in the list? What prices and discounts give Vortex?…the competition?…there are hundreds of questions to be answered.

The thing is you want to be sure that retail customers who want to travel will choose Vortex against the hard competition.


The training remains a mystery as there is no information unless you become a Surge365 member.


The membership of Surge365 is a little expensive with monthly fees that the majority of newcomers won’t be able to overpass.


Generally, the MLM opportunity is for experienced marketers and/or specialized travel agents with a huge following/email lists.

Yes, you can make money with this opportunity but if you are a newbie do not expect to achieve your goals easily. It needs hard work to get there. And it needs tons of recruiting as with MLM compensation plans.
