Breaking News: Power Of One Owner Is Set On Giving Back 50% Of His Personal Earnings!

A very wise Fisher Of Men once said, "It Is Better To Give Than To Receive!"

As owner of this blog and my program, it has recently come to my attention that I have it within my power to do something which I challenge all affiliate program owners and even affiliates to do.

Give back a part of your earnings when your personal sponsored members renew their memberships! 
(Public Notice from Maurice Bernier: As of todays date April 7, 2014; Our program has changed significantly to the point that this offer will no longer be available!)

This November will be 1 year since I introduced our Profit Share into our Power Of One program for paid members. I created this to repay those who support my program by becoming paid members and I am always trying to find new ways to grow their revenue without them doing any extra promotions on their part.

To accomplish this I have outside revenues from Amazon and Linkshare products which I sell and then pass on 10 - 15 - 25 percent of that revenue depending on their paid level status Silver - Gold and Platinum. Along with this I also give back a portion of any Co-op advertising I sell and am currently trying to put the final touches on public advertising which I will also give them a share from.

But just recently, I had another idea. What if I created my own "Power Group" from my own personal referrals and gave them back 50% of my personal commissions when they renew their subscriptions?

Well, that's exactly what I have started doing and one member just last week received a nice $40 rebate from his Platinum member renewal. I won't list his name since I respect his privacy and have not asked him if I could use it here. If he reads this blog post, maybe he'll comment himself to verify what I'm saying is true but it's not something I will force on him.

"My only reason for doing it is to say thanks for your support over the years!"

So now I have something to say to all admins and members of affiliate programs.

Why can't you do the same? Why not show your affiliates and personally sponsored members that you are grateful for their support?

You don't have to give back 50% as I now will be doing with mine every year they renew but what about just 10 or 20 percent. What do you think this will do for your credibility as someone they can trust? Better yet, how do you think they will feel when you send them that rebate? How do you think you will feel once you've done it?

I can only tell you from my own personal experience that it really does feel great to give back knowing you made someone's day a bit brighter!

Now it's your turn to help change the world of affiliate marketing. Are you up for the challenge?

Go ahead and try it then come back in here and tell me how it felt by leaving a comment.

I'm vowing to be different, change things for the better and stop the greed that is currently floating all over the Internet today. To accomplish this, my members can expect gratitude in any form I can show it to them!

Creating a brighter road ahead by invoking change,

Maurice Bernier

New Blog: Top Tips On Becoming A Recognized Author Worldwide With Your LinkedIn Profile Publications.

Having myself been a member of LinkedIn since I can't remember, I find that many would be marketers and bloggers are quite often over looking what a great platform it is. Instead of using it to its fullest potential, they often go off to Twitter and Facebook in preference to get the word out.

While these are also great social sites, I decided to use my new LinkedIn profile publications feature to add even more credibility to my brand as an established author.

LinkedIn recently introduced a fantastic feature which will definitely help more bloggers and authors of all kinds get more recognized as a professional writer worldwide. This new Blog will present my top tips with step by step instructions on how to make this happen for you.

If I'm not mistaken, you can add up to 100 publications you've created be it blogging, press releases or even info. websites. Just think of what this can do for your credibility and marketability as an established author.

My Top Tips.
  1. Go to your blogs and add your favorite posts, especially monetized posts to your LinkedIn profile under your publications section.
  2. Go to your websites if you've created any and add your best information which stands out to promote your product or opportunity.
  3. Go to your press releases and do the same if you have any.
  4. Post a minimum of 3 daily until you've reached the maximum allowed by LinkedIn.
  5. Ping it to let the search engines now that your LinkedIn profile has been updated about once monthly with tools like Pingler or Pingomatic
  6. It is very important that you "Do Not Ping" unless new information has been added from the previous month.
By following those tips above, any visitors who view your LinkedIn profile will scroll down and scan over your published works. If you have a good diverse selection as the author, there is no doubt in my mind that they will find something to click on.

Leave your comment below and let me know if you agree or disagree.

Now here are the exact steps you need to take to get this done.
  1. Login to LinkedIn and go to your "Profile Edit" page.
  2. Scroll down until you see the "Publications" feature and click on the +Add link.
  3. Enter the title of your publication (Blog post article, Press release title or Website info. page name).
  4. Under the "Publication/Publisher" field, enter the platform name where you created your written piece ( For my blog I use, my press releases - PRLog Press Release Distribution or IBO AUTHENTIC CONTENT Press Release and the info. website as stated above would be the "title" of your page).
  5. Fill out the 'Publication Date" field with the exact date you created and released your written work.
  6. Enter the actual URL of where your written piece is located so visitors can go to it.
  7. Under "Author(s)", it is very important that you give credit to all who helped with the creation of your article (If you are the only author, then that's even better).
  8. In the "Description" field, take a paragraph or 2 from the beginning of your article and add that.
  9. Click on "Save" and that's all there is to it.
Extra Tip.

"When adding your description, use 3 paragraphs if you have to but try to leave them hanging with what they will most benefit from by reading your post or article!"

Once you get good at this, it should take you no longer than about 20 minutes daily to get 3 written works you've published added.

If you have any topics you'd like to see me cover or just want to express your feelings on this new blog post, please leave them below in the comments section as I do reply to all who do.

Best wishes for your successful self branding as a new world wide established author!
