Welcome to NPN in 2010

Hello NPN’ers!

Welcome to NPN-2010.

First of all, I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I appreciate all the kind wishes that many of you sent my way.

Now down to business.. Some of you may not be aware of this, but 2010 will mark the 5th anniversary of The NPN. Doesn’t seem like a long time but it’s probably worth around 20 “internet years”. There has been a LOT of changes in internet marketing since we launched. Just as an example… The NPN was launched 2 months after Youtube’s inception back in early 2005… and think of what youtube’s done since then in creating an online presence for us.

The year of 2009 will be noted as the year that our Ladder System really started to change people’s lives for the better… at least for the people that saw the benefits and really went for it. The Ladder System took NPN from being just a “ten dollar program” to being an unlimited (and still unmatched) income opportunity that continues to attract everyone from emarketing newbies to long-time experienced marketers.

So what does 2010 hold for us? This year will be a year of growth and expansion for NPN as a company. Expansion into other areas of online services and products to continue the ongoing process of becoming every eMarketers “home” program. Everything will gradually become more simplified, yet we’ll become the “all under one roof” resource for all things emarketing (moreso than we are today). From Autoresponders to Web Hosting, from Branding to Live Training. Plus a very special incentive program that will help those in the rest of the world that are less fortunate than us.

I don’t care how many ‘programs’ you join this year, they will come and go just like always, but WE will always be here. There are still people that re-join NPN and tell me “I originally joined NPN back in 2006 and now I’m kicking myself because I didn’t stay!”.

Here’s my advice to you. Since this is the beginning of the year, you will probably be bombarded with the usual ads claiming that their program will be the “new” magic silver bullet that will make everyone rich. Remember that the word “new” frequently also means “high risk”, and also remember that most new programs will be gone after a few months. Not all of them, but most of them. Go ahead and join them if you like, but remember that NPN provides you with the tools that you need to succeed in THOSE businesses as well. Don’t be one of the people that I’ll talk to next year wishing that they’d stuck around in NPN instead of hopping to the next salespitch.

Stick around, you’ll be glad you did. Just ask the people that have been here for years 🙂

I have lots of things planned for NPN in the coming months that will knock your socks off. Count on it. The year 2010 is gonna be fun!

Comments below are welcome..

Who makes all the big bucks in Global NPN?

Something really cool has been happening at NPN over the past month or so. We have had more account upgrades in the last month than we have in quite a while. What I mean is people are either joining immediately at the DIRECTOR level or higher, or they are upgrading from a lower level. In fact by comparison very few people have joined NPN at the PRO level this month.

What this is telling me is that more people are seeing the benefits of being an upgraded member of NPN. It also tells me that more of our current members are pushing the higher levels of membership in their advertising. And when you do promote the higher levels to your prospects, what that does is immediately put you in the position of being a leader in your industry.

Put it this way, if you are trying to sponsor people, and you’re at the $10.75 PRO level, it’s a lot more difficult to sponsor quality people if all you can say is that you’re still at the entry level position. I’m not saying you can’t do it, but it’s a lot more difficult. The reason it’s more difficult is because these days, people are looking for two things.

1. A team (or leader) to join under.
2. An opportunity to join with that team.

The key here is that people are looking for other people to join, they’re not looking for businesses to join. So it’s much easier to sponsor people into the upgraded levels when you’re an upgraded member yourself and when you’re promoting yourself as the business, which is what you should be doing.

Don’t worry so much about asking people to join you at the director level instead of the $10 level. If they see that you’re at the Director/Silver/Gold, whatever, and if you’re promoting yourself as a leader, as someone of value to them, they will join you at the same level you’re at. Because they want to see some success and if joining at a higher level means they’ll be part of your organization, or your team, they will do it.

In fact I’d strongly recommend promoting the director level as the best place to start in NPN, because it is. That’s what I do. You get way more product access, and you’ll make a big worthwhile jump income-wise, 2 referrals at the director level and you’re already $10 in profit every month.

Bottom line: The people making good money in NPN are upgraded members sponsoring new upgraded members. That is a statistical fact.

Have a great day!

Why is GlobalNPN the most important program in your marketing funnel

Why is GlobalNPN the most important program in your marketing funnel

Many people ask me “why do I need NPN when I already have a business to promote?”.

The answer is fairly simple but a lot of people still don’t really get it.

Let’s assume that your main business that you want to promote is a ‘Health Drink’ business. You will probably find out pretty quickly that it’s very difficult to find quality targeted leads for your business. After all, you have a very specific business, with a very specific market. It’s not easy (or cheap) to find the right leads that will want to join you in your business. This is also the case no matter what your ‘primary’ business is.

Here’s where NPN comes in. As you know, NPN is a suite of marketing tools and training material that ‘every’ online marketer needs to succeed in generating leads for their own business. Lead generation is the most difficult part of online marketing, especially when your business has a very specific market. That’s why we need GlobalNPN at the top of our marketing funnel.

Which scenario would you rather be a part of?

Scenario #1: You’re trying to get distributors for your Health Drink business. So.. you go out and buy some advertising for your Health Drink website. You get lots of visitors to your website but only a couple people actually decide to contact you about it. Your advertising cost you $50. Which means your ad campaign cost you $25 per lead and those 2 people may not even join you in your business. How much longer can you do that before you give up?

Scenario #2: You’re trying to get distributors for your Health Drink business. BUT, this time you go out and buy some advertising for your GlobalNPN business. You get lots of visitors to your website and a TON of people opt-in to your capture page because they know they need these tools to succeed. Your advertising cost $50, but this time 35 people opted in to your capture page. Your leads only cost you around $1.50 each this time. BUT a number of them joined you in NPN and now you’re making money from that, which means your advertising for your Health Business has essentially been taken care of. Now you can focus on ‘upselling’ your NPN referrals into your Health business, which is much easier since you’ve already qualified them as good quality marketing leads.

What’s my Point: You are making money and getting free advertising from the people that would’ve said a flat out “NO” to your Health Drink business, thanks to NPN. Plus down the road you can recruit your NPN referrals into your Health Drink business, which was the point in the first place right?

Use NPN to generate leads, and qualify leads for your other businesses. You will get leads, you will make money, your advertising will essentially be free, and you will realize how important having GlobalNPN at the top of your funnel is and why it’s essential for your ultimate success.

THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE FOLKS. This is not a theory or a guess as to how it works. If you don’t ‘GET IT’ (or refuse to), you won’t make it.

Now, I know that the next question may be “… but NPN IS my primary business, what then??”. In my opinion the most attractive feature of NPN is that it has is it’s own ‘internal funnel’ system. That is exactly what the NPN Ladder System was designed to take care of. Think of the ladder upgrades as your upsells instead of the “health business” I mentioned above. It works in exactly the same way, but in this case it’s completely self-contained and self-feeding. How cool is that? GlobalNPN can be your feeder system, while at the same time it can be your big dollar earner as your primary business.

Have a great day and have fun! Feel free to comment below…

If You Do This You Will Make Money on the Internet

Online marketing is not difficult, it’s not “too hard”. It’s easy BUT.. you actually have to go out and do it to start making money online.

Do this every day or every few days or at least every week.

If you do this every day you will make money on the internet.

  1. Find a keyword/keyphrase and then research related keywords and content
  2. Work it into an article, spin* it 3 or 4 times, and submit it.
  3. Make a related video and submit it.
  4. Write a related blog post.
  5. Work your article into a press release and submit it.
  6. Create a simple 4-8 page website with good relevant content, and submit it.
  7. Social network your content (facebook, twitter, myspace, etc)
  8. Bookmark your content (digg.com, delicious.com etc.)
  9. Write a classified ad and submit it
  10. Start again at the top of this list..

Sound like a lot of work? Well, it is. It’s called marketing. But once you find your ‘groove’ it becomes easy and much quicker. Soon you’ll have your own system at work. Keep doing it. Keep doing it. Keep doing it. Do NOT do it once and wait to see if you make any money. Just keep doing it…

Don’t complain if  your article doesn’t get any traffic.

Don’t complain if your video didn’t get any hits.

Don’t complain.  Just go and find out how to do it better. Then do it again!

This is how you make long-term passive income the “free traffic” way.

Here are some more general marketing tips that I share with other people (off the top of my head):

  • Make your blog your central “hub” site. This is you, this is your brand.
  • Use GlobalNPN‘s capture pages (or create your own with the capture page creator)
  • Use GlobalNPN’s List Marketer Pro. for your list building if you want your messages to be delivered.
  • FOCUS on creating quality, relevant content
  • FOCUS on presenting yourself as the expert (even if you’re not)
  • FOCUS on building your list of prospects for GlobalNPN.
  • Look at what the successful people are doing, and copy it (the methods not the content)
  • Always use capture pages or capture forms.
  • Subscribe to this blog right now and comment below.
  • Become a “fan” of GlobalNPN on facebook right now and comment.
  • Don’t spam.

Have Fun. Oh, and DO IT!

QOD: Why can’t I pay after I’ve made money with your program?

From the depths of Geoff’s GlobalNPN.com support ticket archives..

Question of the day:
Why can’t I pay after I’ve made money with your program? I don’t want to pay first.

Answer: Well, I suppose this would all come down to mindset. Think about it.

“I don’t want to pay until my referrals pay and I make a commission, then I’ll decide if I want to pay.”

Chances are your referrals would have the same mindset as you, which means they won’t pay either until they’ve referred some paying members.. but then THOSE people would do the same thing… not pay until THEY’RE making money. Do you see a pattern here? I do. The end result: NOBODY is paying, and NOBODY is making any money.

Remember, you’re not paying for the program. You’re paying for the products that the company is selling. The affiliate ‘program’ is attached to the product. It’s up to you if you want to make money by reselling the products. But you’re not going to get ‘real’ products for free.

How about this: I’ll offer you a job at my company, but I won’t actually pay you until you’ve proven that my company will benefit from having you as an employee. You can work for free for me for a month or so, then I’ll decide. Still interested in the job? … didn’t think so.

You need to be willing to invest in your business, in yourself, in your knowledge, your education, and your skills. If you’re not willing to do this, you’re not right for this industry and you should keep working for someone else.

If you want it, you’ll do what it takes to succeed. If you’ve got it in you, you WILL be successful.

Have a great day,
