Global NPN – Double your Downline this month?

Hello NPN’ers,

Member Placement Update:

I will be implementing a new placement process in the next few days where you’ll be able to re-assign the sponsor (and upline) of your personal referrals. It will work like this: When you sponsor a new (paid) member into GlobalNPN, you can take that referral and give them to one of your other downline members, manually, from your backoffice. You will have a certain timeframe in which to do this (ie. 24 hrs.) and you’ll be able to do this once per referral.

** yes the referral bonus would go to the new sponsor, like the RDS **

What makes this so great?

Well.. This is great news for those of you that are doing a “team build” situation, where you need to make sure that certain people in your group get their referrals. You will now be able to assign the sponsor yourself to your new referrals.

This will also give you the opportunity to help (reward) those people in your downline that are putting in the most effort for you. (ie. You can ensure your new referrals aren’t going to that “deadbeat” in your 2nd level anymore)

This will give you the opportunity to build more strategically than the current RDS system can. Yes, the RDS works fine as it is but now you have a little bit more control over how things work out.

Cool, huh? Let me know what you think.

So, here’s a challenge for you for this month..

The biggest online marketing season is almost upon us, so let’s get a flying start!

My challenge to you is that everyone in NPN sponsors 1 new person this month (or more of course). Sponsors this is aimed at you. It is up to you to motivate yourself and your downlines to get this done. 1 New Referral Each. If you can do this, your downline will double in size. Simple as that, and the Power of 1 makes it that much more attractive. 1 new referral each month = double your downline. Of course you can take advantage of the new placement process I mentioned above to help out your team, and they can do the same. Duplicate it. Call your team. Email your team. Facebook your team. Get going!

Think you can do it? I think you can, just FOCUS on that goal for this month, and make it happen. (hint: eCertificates work wonders for duplication)

P.S. In the near future I will *probably* have a process to re-assign uplines only (you keep the ref bonus). Not as attractive in my opinion since you’re only passing down $.50, but some of you may like it.

P.P.S. While you’re at it, please “Like” my new Facebook page here so I can shorten my URL (thanks!) 😛

What happens in Vegas..

Hello NPN’ers,

1. First a ‘new website’ update..

I appreciate all the excitement over the new Global NPN website features that I described in my last update. However, to answer your question: No, as of right now I don’t have a date when the new site will be live. I still have much work to do on it all and to announce a launch date at this time would just be irresponsible.  I will keep everyone updated as things progress and get closer, and yes I’ll have a date soon but not at this time. I won’t launch anything that’s not complete. Thanks for your patience and if you have any more suggestions on what you’d like to see (or not see) on our main website please don’t hesitate to message me.

2. Anyone want to meet in Las Vegas?

On another note, I’m planning on flying down to the “No Excuses II Summit” in Las Vegas at the end of April. It should be a really fun, and a really big, conference. I didn’t go to the last one but I heard it was excellent. It’s a “no pitch” event which means it’s all information that can apply to what you’re doing in online business. There will be lots of speakers, some of the biggest names in the industry teaching what they know best. Events like this can be a great place to network and meet the industry pro’s, and lots of ‘up and coming’ leaders as well. Really it’s just fun (and educational) to hang out with a bunch of people that have the same goals and aspirations as you do, and that you can exchange ideas and contact information with.

I’d like to meet some of you in person, so if you would like to meet up with me go ahead and purchase your No Excuses Summit Ticket and then shoot me an email so we can exchange contact info and meet up while we are there.  It’s going to be a lot of fun – bring your camera!

Check it out here:

That’s all for now, have a great weekend.

What’s the Best Way to Advertise GlobalNPN?

A question I get a lot from newer marketers is simply: “What’s the best way to advertise (promote) NPN??”

It’s a very good question, and it sounds like a simple enough question to answer. However, answering it isn’t as simple as it may seem. There are probably hundreds of ways to “best” advertise Globalnpn. It depends on who you are, and what you are good at, and what you “want” to be good at, and how much time you have, etc. etc. The fact is, there are people promoting NPN successfully in all aspects of online advertising, so I can’t give you a definitive answer… at least not something that will absolutely work for everyone that uses it.

I can, however, speak from my own experience, and from what others have told me that works for them.

So.. that’s how I’ll answer the question, which now is: “In Geoff’s experience, what’s the best way to advertise (promote) NPN??”

When I first started “The New Plan Network” before it was the business that it has become today, I built my entire organization almost exclusively using Safelists and Ezines.

Right to the point, here’s how I did it..

I would advertise my free downline/marketing club using safelists and ezines. However the way I went about it might not be what you think. I tried many many ways of advertising to these lists, and I had many many failures, which I learned a lot from. And I learned enough from them to turn the whole thing into many many successes. I learned that when trying to build a downline organization, it was a bad idea to try and advertise a business opportunity directly to a list. There are more than enough biz opp. ads out there to go around, and nobody cares about reading about them or joining them, at least not the people you’d WANT in your downline.

Here’s what I did with my advertising to really make it more successful. All I really did was to change the ‘focus’ of what I was really advertising, or what I really WANTED to be advertising. (think: Where’s the real VALUE?).

  1. This focus worked, but not too well: “Hey join my club, it’s great, it will help you make money”.
  2. This focus worked all the time: “Hey this is me, I’m great, I will help you make money.”.

See the difference? My downline club was still at the end of it all, but the focus of the ‘front end’ changed. In the first example, the focus is on “IT”, being the downline club. In the second example, I changed the focus to “ME” instead.  You see, downline clubs (and similar tools) themselves do not help you make money, PEOPLE help you make money. As soon as I started advertising what “I” could do to help on a personal level, the response was enormous. What I learned back then is that successful people do NOT join businesses, successful people join PEOPLE (write that one down)…

.. Okay.. I’m getting off subject here. What was I talking about..?? 😉

So basically, I built my entire business using Safelists and Ezine ads. Which means I was building my own list (my downline club) by advertising to other people’s lists. How easy is THAT??  Of course I continued to communicate with everyone on my list on an ongoing basis, which is something you have to do to be able to continue to make money in this crazy online world.

So to answer the question that was asked way back at the beginning: “What’s the best way to advertise (promote) NPN?? — In Geoff’s experience??”

The short answer: Safelists, Ezine solo ads.

The long answer: Safelists, Ezine solo ads that ultimately direct prospects to my own list, via my own ‘membership-type’ website. Then I would “supplement” my traffic using articles, blogs, videos, web 2.0 postings, press releases, classifieds, bookmarks..

There ya go. Now I’ll say again that this is what worked for ME (and still does). It might not work for you at all, which is fine too. But find out what DOES work for you, and then kick ass at it. Then find out what ELSE works for you, then do that too. BE valuable and you’ll be successful.

I always recommend safelists and ezines for newer marketers, because it’s easy to start (and relatively cheap), and it will really teach you how to get attention directed towards yourself and your businesses. After you learn how to do that, start moving into the other online advertising mediums and it will just get easier.

Go and DO IT!
