It is our pleasure to feature Mr. William Buck in our Member Spotlight!

William is one of our elite Monitors and a long time loyal Platinum VIP Member for the past five years.
He started as a Silver Member to get his business off the ground, then he decided to train to be a Worldprofit Monitor so he could better learn actively about online sales and help others in Worldprofit’s Home Business Community. As William’s business grew he decided to get more serious about online marketing and upgraded to Platinum VIP Membership.

You may have already met William in Worldprofit’s LIVE Business Center where he helps people from around the world – from all walks of life, take the first step to changing their life by starting an online business. William faced some difficult challenges in his own life but he didn’t let that get him down. Instead he made the decision to join Worldprofit, to learn about online marketing, and focus to work hard to grow his own online business. Today, by making that decision, William is a successful internet business owner. William is also changing other people’s lives by volunteering as a Worldprofit Monitor. In that role, he introduces others to the opportunity to use the tools and resources offered at Worldprofit to start their own online business.

I asked William to share a little bit about himself and what brought him to Worldprofit.

Here’s what he had to say.

“I was sidelined from work due to back problems. My spine went out on me and I was down on the floor for over 8 hours. But I did not stop or give up, for I knew there was something out there that I could do. So my wife got me a computer and I began to look for a new way to earn not willing to give up. I was still having severe pain with my back but I was determined to continue to effect a positive change in my life. With my computer I was able to find Worldprofit and with the help of the Worldprofit staff, I was able to learn, I felt empowered to move forward.”

I asked William if he had any advice for others just getting started, or who are fearful about started their own online business.

“When someone tells you NO or tells you to give up, step up to the plate and say YES I can and I WILL. Don’t give up.
Some of you may have problems of your own, or you may have debilitating back problems like me. Don’t feel defeated, instead let it empower you to go for the goal in your life. I was cobbled together with titanium in my back… but I had unequalled resolution in my mind. The Lord is my shepherd and I rose to the task at hand. You can too.”

Worldprofit home business training systems

Worldprofit Member Updates:

WOW! Some of you are like SPONGES.

You’re digging into the training and digesting every bit of information and every resource we have for you.

Terrific!

Just don’t forget about PROMOTING.

Learn a little – PROMOTE a lot!

The online Bootcamp Lessons are go-at-your-own pace.
It’s important to master the BASICS of promotion before you go too far into the more advanced topics.

You can EARN while you LEARN but you can only do that if you are PROMOTING.

The Bootcamp lessons are on the LEFT MENU. Select BOOTCAMP TRAINING then select BOOTCAMP LESSON SUMMARY.
There you can move backwards or forwards through the lessons or select topics of particular interest to you.

REMEMBER though, MASTER the basics of promotions first – this is the key to making money online in this program – in ANY program – for the rest of your life. The products you market may change, your affiliate programs may change but you will ALWAYS have to PROMOTE as long as you want to EARN.

We’re teaching you how to earn online for LIFE – to better your financial situation and that of your family by providing you with the tools, and resources you need to grow a LIFETIME online business. This is no flash in the pan biz-op. We’re teaching you how to grow your own successful online business that will provide you with income today, tomorrow and for the forseeable future. This ALL starts with DOING the bootcamp training to learn how to generate leads and traffic and BUILD your email marketing list.

YOU ARE WORTH IT! Put the time in.

All the resources to do this are in your Worldprofit Member area, the training lessons, specialized software, recommended sites, free promotion sites, landing pages, sales funnels etc – and IMPORTANTLY – support and help when you need it 7 days a week from Worldprofit’s Support Team.

Speaking of Sales Funnels…

Submit a Support Ticket. The link is in your Worldprofit Member area on TOP MENU select SUPPORT.
We will get back to you lickety-split in most cases. Just make sure to whitelist WORLDPROFIT or add us to your CONTACT list so we don’t end up in your spam or junk folder 🙁 This is especially for true with anyone with a Yahoo email address. Yahoo filters a lot of legitimate email.

What Kind of Online Marketer are you? A Dabbler or a Doer? Your Answer Matters.

sandihunter1

Every day I talk to people who are trying to earn an honest buck in an online business. These are average people who come from all walks of life, from all corners of the globe. The common goal they share is the desire to earn money online in any number of online affiliate or reseller type programs. Although the goal is the same, the approach to making this happen is always different and so too are the results. I have outlined here the marketing approaches that I observe everyday, the ones that are effective and the ones that aren’t. See if you recognize yourself in any of these examples.

The Dabbler.

The Dabbler’s marketing approach involves putting a little bit of effort into this and a little bit of effort into that. This type of marketer will post a few blogs, send a few tweets, join a safelist or two and participate in a handful of traffic exchanges. This person has a basic understanding of what is required to market their online business. The problem is they simply won’t commit to rolling up their sleeves, digging in and doing what is necessary to consistently promote and build results. They are too busy talking about it, planning it, and getting organized. The Dabbler sometimes doubles as an excuse-machine. They readily offer up reasons for not having completed the necessary tasks to build their business. Or, they easily assign blame to others for their lack of success. It has always puzzled me how it is so easy to find reasons for not being successful. What about all the reasons why you CAN be successful? The Internet offers burgeoning earning opportunities!

The Learner.

This type of marketer is a professional online student. They read continuously, watch videos, sign up for everything to get even more details and more help. They are so busy learning, and soaking up knowledge they never actually DO anything or apply what they learn. They are never ready to START applying what they have learned. They want to study more, take it all in, buy more books, take more courses. The Internet itself, and marketing strategies are constantly evolving. You will never know every last detail about marketing and when you think you are getting close, technology will change again. Stop with the learning and start with the doing! Everyday you focus ONLY on learning, is another day you have not made a dime. Dive in, get wet, start promoting your business, products and services – now – RIGHT NOW! Yes, there is much to learn about online marketing, never stop learning but be sure to never stop MARKETING.

The Sweat and Tears Syndrome

This marketer is the saddest one of all. They promote with a frenzied intensity in short bursts spending hours in all the wrong places, promoting all the wrong things. They furiously tap away for hours at their keyboard “working their business” late into the night for 2, 3 days, maybe a week or more. Their blog is bursting with good key word content, they’ve tweeted like a mad person, they’ve bought leads with great promises from a sketchy vendor that seemed to good to be true. Exhausted, they pause and wait for the results. When they don’t get instant results, the sweat turns to tears. Frustrated they swear, stomp, tantrum and move on to the next greatest online money-making program ever – that is in pre-launch! The insanity begins again. This type of marketer has no patience, and leaps from one program to another, with no loyalty or commitment.

The Doer

The DOER is the marketer that SUCCEEDS! The DOER is the one who doesn’t get caught up in all the details. The DOER is a courageous beast. They blunder, make mistakes, but carry on. They understand the sheer power of the web to market products to the world and to profit from their labour. They understand that with the right products and tools they can sell anything! The web is fat with buyers. DOERS understand that you MUST have patience, and MUST work a business constantly, knowing this means consistent promotion every day. DOERS accept that there will be frustrating times, failures, and obstacles on the path to success. The DOERS I know, aren’t always the people you might expect. Many of the DOERS I know are average people, with very little sales or technical background. Their gift is that they are not afraid to try, they don’t give up, they dig in and work hard. There are DOERS all over the world right now marketing their products, services, and affiliate programs in all corners of the web, turning a profit each and every day. This type of marketer has tapped into the right resources, training and tools, applies them consistently, setting realistic goals carrying a positive attitude.

Here is my advise to you as an online marketer on your way to success.

Every single day when you wake up, set a goal for yourself. Make your goal realistic and measurable. Post your goal on your computer, date it.

Initially your goal may be to simply find 5 great places to promote your business. Then your goal may evolve into actually posting your ads, product, service or opportunity to 5, then 10, 20+ sites each day. Once the promotion is is place, set goals for the number of sales each day.

As your business grows never lose your focus on that goal. Don’t get distracted. Remember, at the end of the day you want to actually have made money! Tweeting, face booking, article submissions, and blogging HELP your business grow but are not direct profits in your pocket. Yes, promotion, networking and Search Engine positioning is important and you should work at this but it takes time to do this. Do not let these activities overwhelm you to the point where you forget to make money! Keep your eye on the prize.

Set a goal for a minimum earnings per day. Start off realistic. If you don’t make that amount today, set a new goal for tomorrow. When you start making money, adjust your daily goals accordingly. For those of you who are new to online marketing you CAN make money every single day provided you have the proper tools and resources to do so and of course great products and services to promote. Just make sure you are the DOER described in this article.

I close with a quote from one of my favourite DOERS, Ray Kroc, McDonald’s Corporation. “Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.”

Worldprofit Top Seller, Wallace Johnson shares what HE DOES to build his online business and generate sales!

Wallace Johnson

Wallace Johnson

There are lots of people out there telling you how to build an online business but its often full of hype and fluff.

At Worldprofit we believe in teaching the raw, unglamorous skills and habits that lead to sales success. We provide the tools and support you can use to get traffic, get sales and build your email marketing list.  We find that the most valuable how-to information comes from the DO’ers – the average guy or gal, quietly and effectively actually DOING the marketing and getting sales.

We asked one of our own DOERS, long time, hard working, and committed Top Seller, Wallace Johnson to share what he does to build his online business.
Here’s what he had to say…..

Question: Wallace, how long have you been an online marketer, or working to build your own online business?

Answer: I have been involved with the Internet from its early inception. I established my domain DEWAJ Synergy International as Pres. & CEO with a Mission Statement “From 1 To Infinity With Synergy.”  At first it was just Hobby Lobby and mostly fun. But I wanted to have my own Spaceship DEWAJ ( a Daring Enterprise With A Journey), loaded with a Bill of Lading (a Miniature Google as it were), offering Tools, Training, Applications, and TRAFFIC. But after spending countless thousands of dollars, I realized, I didn’t have the expertise or money to continue.  Then I ran across Worldprofit in its early days and realized George Kosch, and Sandi Hunter had done what I had in mind for my Spaceship DEWAJ.  Worldprofit had done it for me. I immediately joined, and the rest is history.

Question: Wallace, how much time you spend promoting to build your business?

Answer: I am lucky and retired, so I have all the time in the world. I admit I am at my computer more hours per day than I spent when I was gainfully employed, but that is my choice, not something that I HAVE to do. Anyone who can spend two hours per day diligently working smart can do what I have done. I put in the hours I do because the work I do is FUN as well as lucrative.

Question: Wallace, what kind of promotion do you do? Free? Paid? Both?

Answer: I am involved in both, but I know it takes money to make money and I operate on a budget mostly buying Solo Ads.

Question: Wallace, which Worldprofit services do you find the most useful in building your online business?

Answer:  No question about it. The Live Business Center and Worldprofit’s Synergistic Community approach melds perfectly with my philosophy as a way of doing business.
Having a Senior Monitor closing sales for you is where it is at. Worldprofit is the ONLY one that uses this method and it is Unique to the Internet.

Question: Wallace, what advise or suggestions do you have for someone very new to Worldprofit who is eager to build their online business?

Stop searching for that “Magic Bullet.” It doesn’t exist! George Kosch tells it like it is and all one needs to do is follow his instructions to the letter. This is NOT Get Rich Quick! However it is Slow but sure. The maxim, “The Money Is In The List” is true!

Publish your own custom ebooks with Worldprofit’s Custom Ebook Creator

We were so pleased when we received an incredible uplifting note from Worldprofit Member Brenda Mohammed!
I asked Brenda if I could share it with you and she agreed, so here it is..

"To Worldprofit Technical Support

I just want to let you know that I published my True Story on Amazon Kindle two days ago.

I AM CANCER FREE

Already I have received emails from two buyers who said that they purchased it for close relatives who are stricken with cancer and it is helping them to have positive thoughts.

I only started publishing EBooks last month because of Worldprofit’s Custom EBook Creator.
It is so easy to use.

To me that is the best part of Worldprofit’s training, because I love writing.

Worldprofit should advertise the Custom Ebook Creator more.
I do not think that Worldprofit members know the value of this tool."

Here is the link to the ebook by Brenda Mohammed titled: I am Cancer Free.” It’s her own personal story.
http://www.CashCircuit.com/?rd=th1xktNk

NOTE from Worldprofit Technical Support: Worldprofit Members you can find the Custom Ebook Creator in your member area.
On the LEFT Menu select ARTICLE/EBOOK Marketing then select "CUSTOM EBOOK CREATOR"

Thank you Brenda, first for sharing your tremendous personal news and also for letting us know that a Worldprofit service is helping you to share your story. 
We are so happy for you.

Review: LIVE Home Business Bootcamp Training. Date: March 22, 2013 with Marketing Expert George Kosch

The session started with Bootcamp Instructor,  George Kosch, welcoming new Silver and Platinum VIP Members who have recently joined Worldprofit.

Discussion topics:

Discussion Topic:  "I want to promote my own Affiliate programs, how does Worldprofit’s training and resources help me do that?"

The tools, resources, traffic and software Worldprofit provides can be used to promote any and all your Affiliate programs, not just Worldprofit services. The entire base of our company’s training is based on helping our Members build MULTIPLE STREAMS of INCOME. Your member area has not only promotional aids for Worldprofit services, but also for other reputable affiliate programs and vendors. The answer to how to make money online is revenue from a number of different programs and that is exactly what Worldprofit’s training and software teaches you – how to earn from a number of trusted sources, and build your email marketing list.  Worldprofit teaches you what to look for in selecting online income programs, and how to market and promote online for best results.

Discussion Topic:  "The MLM mentality is DEAD."

Many people are familiar with MLM, or network marketing have a dated mentality about how to make money online.  The MM mentality is one that says you can only be in one program, that there is only ONE greatest program every and you must disregard all other income sources.  MLMers talk about spillover, warm marketing, and focus often on confidentially for your own personal gain in building your downline.      The world of online business is VERY different. The new world of online marketers at Worldprofit is social, encourages a group effort, community mindedness. Success is based on co-operation, hard work, NO HYPE, and the approach is an all web-based marketing platform.   George offered the example shown in the movie, The Beautiful Mind, where John Nash’s theory of Equilibrium (Game Theory) was featured within the context of the story.  Stated quite simply for the purpose of this discussion, take from that, the fact that in business, the prediction of success is greater when people work together. That is what we emphasize at Worldprofit with our business model, people working together, helping each other in an online community environment. This is all possible as a result of our unique Monitor Network.

Discussion Topic: Leads

Leads are your life blood when it comes to making money online.  Generating leads is critical and so too is list building.  At Worldprofit we teach you how to generate leads to build your online business, while building your email marketing list.  We’ve simplified things for you by teaching you how to promote, we provide products and services for you to promote, then WE do the selling for you with our Monitor Network. Monitors staff our Live Business Center 24 hours a day to greet your leads (Associates) and present offers to encourage sales/upgrades.  This is a 100% LIVE program that does not exist anywhere else online in the form that Worldprofit offers.

Discussion Topic: Worldprofit offers you a legitimate online business, NOT a biz op.

Be responsible for your online business and treat it seriously, act professionally, be organized and have a positive realistic attitude. Don’t treat your Worldprofit business like a hobby, or a biz op. Dig into the training, commit to learning then apply consistently  what you learn.  People who don’t take a business seriously rarely make any money as they don’t commit, they aren’t vested in their own success. Dabblers, don’t make money. Respect yourself and others if this is what you want to do.  An online business is not for everyone, it takes time, effort and commitment for the long term.

Discussion Topic: THE Offer!

Offers are what motivate the human animal. You, me, we all respond to offers.  Worldprofit has an amazing offer because we have so many sites, and resources that we can dish up as incentives to attract new Members. Monitors know the value of these offers, but do you?  In your Member area are tons of things that YOU can use to create your OWN offers.    Consider becoming a Monitor so you can learn about offers, sales and online marketing while building your own online business and helping others at the same time.

George Kosch’s Home Work Assignment:

If you have been with Worldprofit for at least 3 months (don’t do this if you are brand new), look in your Member area and see what you have at your finger tips to create your own personalize offers for your own leads. HINT: If you own a Worldprofit Safelist Exchange you’ve ALREADY got a powerful way to make offers now.

What’s New!

The new Lazy Blogger System is now LIVE and available for all Silver and Platinum VIP Members.  George presented an online demonstration of how to use this new system to easily blog, and add content to your Silver or Platinum VIP site for the purpose of SEO indexing and lead generation. Don’t worry this new system is integrated into your  membership, there  is no extra cost.

SEO Optimizer Pro.  George provided an online demonstration and invited all members to sign up for a free 7 day trial of this new service.  The service allows you to EASILY and QUICKLY promote your website to over 700,000 Search Engines, Directories, Link Pages, Online Malls, and Classified Sites. It’s 100% automated and has one purpose – to generate traffic for your site. Using the service helps potential customers find your site and what you offer. Manual submission to a large number of sites is very time consuming. By using SEO OPTIMIZER PRO this task is automated and takes you minutes to complete.  There is NO software to download, and the easy to use WIZARD will help you get your site(s) submitted easily in minutes.

What’s coming!

Can pooled knowledge be the key to curing disease?

By Sandi Hunter

Recently at a dear friend’s funeral, I heard someone remark that she would live on in our hearts and on her FaceBook page. For some of us there that day, the fact that Isabella still had a FaceBook page including recent posts made it seem she was still here among the living. Later that day I reflected on how much technology and the Internet has changed our lives in such a short time with so much more to come than most of us can imagine.

Facebook, Twitter and other social media connect us in ways we never could before.  Through these sites we know more of people than we ever knew before. What they are doing, where they are, personal details, photos and more are all posted online. People are willing to share personal details that you may have never known or they would never have told you. Computers once thought to be a past-time only for geeks and the socially awkward have become through the Internet, a powerful way to connect people around the world and as we are seeing more and more, a way to change the world.

But there is more, so very more to the benefits this technology offers each of us that extends beyond connecting with people via Facebook and Twitter. 

Mobile applications now allow people to do their favorite online activities from the convenience of their phone or iPad. While standing in a long line at the grocery store, I noticed  4 out of 10 people tapping away madly on their phones.  I snuck a covert look  at a  couple of them to see they were on Twitter, Facebook, checking email, reading news feeds or firing off a text message.  Spend anytime in an airport lounge and the majority of people have phones out and are pre-occupied with something far more interesting then the buzz of the airport around them.  Technology is integrated INTO our daily lives – no longer so separated.

At any given time thanks to our phones and the Internet we are all connected in a very personal way. Even when we are not in physical contact with our friends and loved ones, we feel that we are still close. No longer chained to our home computer, we can carry on our business, our hobbies and our relationships conveniently from our smart phones.

Five years ago when my company, Worldprofit released the Live Business Center it was brand new interactive technology. We were able to stream LIVE video to our website audience. When visitors landed on our site, they were startled to have someone on screen say hello to them.  People were shocked and confused! They couldn’t understand at first who was talking to them and how they were doing it.  Today, years later people are more comfortable with interacting with their computers and phones.    FaceTime on the IPhone for example has made it wonderfully easy to connect LIVE face to face with their family and colleagues.    Webinars once unknown are common now. Web-based conferences and meetings are convenient for the consumer, a money-saver for corporations and happily a good thing for the environment with fewer people traveling to meetings.

Today, Worldprofit offers a personalized version of the Live Business Center that our Members can use and add to their own site. The technology allows them to greet their site visitors, answer their questions, provide customer service, make offers, and close sales, In short , they can connect with prospective customers in real time.   Massive unemployment and world turmoil has meant that the number of home based businesses and entrepreneurs has skyrocketed.  The Internet  has allowed a person working from home incredible freedoms and opportunity to make money by selling products, promoting affiliate marketing programs,  blogging, offering web-based services and more.

As the world has now surpassed 7 BILLION people, I can’t help but think how we may be bigger but through the Internet the world feels smaller and closer.  Technology has made all of our lives better.  When like-minded people unite, good – even great ideas emerge.  Perhaps technology will be what moves us closer to solving problems, finding cures for diseases.

Technology powered by PEOPLE is changing our world – for the better – just look at these stories and start to imagine what is yet to come!

In September of this year, a group of video game players solved a molecular puzzle that has stumped scientists for years.  The gamers accomplished this by using a collaborative online game called "Foldit".   Foldit is a computer game that enables players to contribute to important scientific research. The area of focus is proteins and how they fold. Proteins are found in all living things and  involved in diseases such as cancer, AIDS and Alzheimer’s. According to the people at Foldit, "We’re collecting data to find out if humans’ pattern-recognition and puzzle-solving abilities make them more efficient than existing computer programs at pattern-folding tasks. If this turns out to be true, we can then teach human strategies to computers and fold proteins faster than ever!"  More than 236,000 players have registered for the game, that’s a lot of collective brain power to solve problems and a huge and growing body of knowledge from which to draw. What this means is that the door has been opened to discovering "crowd-sourced" solutions to age-old problems including AIDS and other diseases that have plagued mankind.

Take the case of the New York Times where readers were invited to solve an actual real-life medical mystery.  The basic facts of an illness were made available and readers were asked to diagnose the problem.  300 readers responded, and within the first 30 minutes of posting, a correct diagnosis was made and many more correct answers came in thereafter.  Think of the implications for pooled knowledge? A hive of brains working together to solve problems from all corners of the globe.

Finally, what happens when great technological minds meet for their own individual purposes but the side-effect of that collaboration being a benefit for all of humanity.  Google’s Peter Novig and Microsoft’s Eric Horvitz recently met to discuss artificial intelligence. These two companies may be fierce business competitors but they both recognize the importance of artificial intelligence to the future of technology. Both of these creative minds spoke publicly about how machine-learning techniques have advanced by taking in large volumes of data and figuring out how to translate text or transcribe speech. As users of the new IPhone 4G already know, SIRI, the Voice activated assistant is here now but is only the beginning.  Data, mass amounts of data is information. Knowledge is power. 

The future is so very exciting!  Imagine how every human being on the planet will benefit as new technology emerges that can extract specific data for problem resolution for everything from preventing traffic jams, to precise medical diagnosis, to eliminating oil spills, to research and space travel. There are no limits.

Facebook was really an accidental early social experiment. What we are learning now is that social media and other massed pooled data may be instrumental in social adaptation and actual survival.
