On September 26 of this year I wrote a blog post challenging, affiliate administrations and Power Of One friends to give part of their commissions back to their sponsored members when they upgrade to a paid service level.
To this date, not one administration has taken me up on this challenge.
This is the story of someone who is by no means rich and in fact has a job he goes to every day to provide for his family. I don't think he's a poor man either but he is the first person to have contacted me personally to take me up on my challenge.
Because of this, I feel he should get the recognition he so well deserves so I asked him if I could post this here today!
Here is the communication I received via email from one of my most loyal and hard working Power Of One friends Mr. Garry Stretch.
Beginning of email:
Hey Maurice I know you are busy with YGPF but I wanted to run this by you to see what you think. I'm planning on sending this to my sponsored members.
Hi to all my TPOOI4L referrals;
Only people that I consider to be my direct referral
or contact are receiving this E-mail. Feel free to
use any part of the E-mail above to contact your
referrals, business partners, friends and family.
My reason for contacting you is based on the spirit of TPOOI4L admin and their ideas.
Maurice Bernier has come up with a totally unique idea to promote more upgrades from our members.
This is my proposal;
Anyone who upgrades will receive back from me part of my commission.
How it will work is like this;
Upgrade to silver or gold level and receive back $10 or $20 respectively.
This is one third of my commission back to you.
Upgrade to platinum and receive $40 or half of my commission back to you.
As far as I know there are few if any programs where this happens. TPOOI4L wants all their members to "get something back" and I am totally behind this idea.
Thanks for your time and all my best to you and yours,
End of email.
Now you tell me!
Rich Man Average Man: Who Is More Charitable?
Sunday, November 3, 2013
As I sit here writing this today, I find myself being completely side tracked by something that keeps pounding these thoughts in my head Screaming:
- IT'S NEVER BEEN DONE AND WE ALL COULD BE THE FIRST IN OUR OWN CLASS!!!
- MAKE THIS WORK FOR THE GOOD OF ALL PARTICIPANTS WHILE LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND!!!
- TEACH THEM AND THEY WILL FOLLOW WITH PRIDE!!!
- MAKE THEM SEE THAT THERE IS NO NEED FOR SELFISHNESS TO EARN A GREAT INCOME ONLINE!!!
- SHOW THEM HOW TO REALLY HELP PEOPLE IN NEED AND WHY THEY WILL EARN MORE BY DOING SO!!!
Okay so I've been a little over-dramatic maybe but; This really is what I want to show you today.
Just recently I was contacted by one of my LinkedIn colleagues to check out something that he said would make a huge difference in my daily income by providing viral money orders and bank drafts being received directly to my home mailbox.
As it turns out, he had seen and read a recent post from this blog which I published to my LinkedIn profile via my published works tool. He sent me the invitation he claimed because, he noticed that I liked helping people and this could make a huge difference in people's lives if I were to show it to them.
My first thought was, Ya Right. Like I haven't heard this before!
He went on to describe more about the program and informed me that this was from a major corporation that's been online since the mid or late 90's. "It's not a gifting program he said". In fact they distribute viral websites containing software every marketer needs and you become the owner of your site for an easy one time payment of $28.00.
"Don't worry about admin fees, monthly fees or pass ups of any kind with this since they don't exist" he went on to say.
"One member has only sponsored 3 and already received or will receive over 379 money order payments."
Now that is what got my attention!
Something everyone could afford at a one time cost with good marketing software every marketer needs. Not to mention that he said it was viral and that the example above if true, couldn't be ignored.
Well now I had to check it out so, I did and what I found out is what has compelled me beyond my own comprehension to start something that as far as I know has never been done before!
"Create An Extreme Viral Team Build" beginning with my own Power Of One membership while making sure that nobody gets left behind who participates. No matter if they are in Power Of One or not.
The first obstacle facing me was the "snail-mail" issue. How could I do this quickly if the whole program was based on owners getting their promotion links only after having been confirmed that they had paid via the postman?
To overcome this, I decide that there was no way to overcome it! lolol
But, I could email my TPOOI4L friends and see who might become as interested as I now am. After doing so and with a fairly good response, I figured that by placing owners under each others links as they were confirmed I could speed it up a bit beginning with 3 of my own personally sponsored TPOOI4L members.
Then I realized that HEY! I'm giving away paid money orders that I could be receiving. But then I also realized that this was a viral process so it wouldn't matter in the long run.
Not to mention that I'm just a nice guy who likes to help after all. :)
More thoughts began streaming into my brain at this point like.
- This Is really powerful but how can I make it better?
- How can I make it so nobody gets left behind like that last sign-up that always comes in to begin the crash of everything that's been accomplished.
Then it hit me like a jolt of lightning!
What if I ask everyone who participates in my new Extreme Team Build to advertise that last person's link for a week through what ever methods they normally use? And what if as these new sign-ups come in, we keep doing just that?
Who would get left behind if this could be done?
Now that would be an accomplishment and even if only 10% participated, it should help that last person move forward to get a paid referral or more from our team efforts.
Well I have done exactly as mentioned above and most of our team responded saying they were in all the way. If this doesn't show you that there are still unselfish good people in the world, then I don't know what else to say!
To learn more on how you can participate in this first of its kind "Extreme Viral Team Build", simply send me an email to get signed-up under who ever needs you most with subject line "Please tell me more about your team".
Then it will be you we help promote!
There Is Strength In Numbers and We Are About to Use That for Your Advantage.
