Manual Sponsor Re-assignment Process and More Updates..

Hello NPN’ers,

New Sponsor Placement Process:

The sponsor re-assignment option is now active in your NPN backoffice!

This means you can choose your latest referrals (joined within 48 hrs), and assign them to a different sponsor in your downline. This is excellent news for those of you that are building in a ‘team build’ or have a reason for being able to give your referrals to someone in your downline. It is similar to how the RDS works, except that you are doing the placement yourself manually.

In your backoffice, click on “My Current Stats” to go to your affiliate stats page. Then click the link above your stats that says “Re-assign Sponsorship”. From there you can go through the process of re-assigning your referral to a new sponsor. Please read the FAQ and watch the video there to familiarize yourself with the process before you begin. The changes you make cannot be reversed, so make sure you are sure of what you’re doing…

Question: What is “best practice” when moving someone like this?
Answer: It is recommended that you only move your referrals under one of your other personal referrals. That way if the new sponsor quits, your original referral will compress back to you. If you move your referral under someone that is not sponsored by you, you may risk losing them from your downline in the future. The choice is yours.

Here is the video tutorial on Youtube (the backoffice version is better):

GlobalNPN: About Security and Charity

Hello NPN’ers,

A couple quick updates for you..

Firstly, this is more of an ‘FYI’, I just wanted to make you aware of the fact that GlobalNPN ( is 100% PCI (payment card industry) compliant. What this certification means is that GlobalNPN (including all the online servers and services we own) meets “compliance standards to protect personal information and ensure security when transactions are processed using a payment card.”

To make the long story short, your information is safe and secure with us. We’ve been compliant for quite some time so I thought I’d just let you know to maybe put your mind at ease when dealing with credit card transactions etc. Plus, being PCI compliant kinda lets the world know that we’re serious about being a long term business and that we’re not here to make a quick buck and disappear. There’s a lot of time (and money) involved in getting this certificate as well, there’s a lot of hoops you have to jump through, but it’s important.

Quick question: Do you ever check for PCI compliance before entering your credit card information into a form…?? Didn’t think so, perhaps you should. There’s a lot more involved than just having that ‘padlock’ in the bottom corner of your browser window.

Second item of note..

Some of you might remember an update I sent out a while ago with regards to contributions that I make to an organization called “”.

Here’s a section of that update:

“…It’s an excellent organization that I’ve been personally involved with over the last few years. The way they help people is amazing, check it out.. My plan is to match the monthly bonus payments that YOU earn, and donate that amount to Again this is more of an FYI… none of this will come out of your commissions (don’t panic), I’m doing this out of my own pocket, because I think it matters….”

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that a portion of the “Bonus Promotion” money that is generated each month will go to on behalf of the company. Again, don’t worry, I’m not taking the money from YOUR bonus money, I’m basically matching a percentage of it and paying it out of my own pocket, because I know it’s a good cause.

I kind of have an issue with people that make a lot of money, but don’t do any good with it. The fact is, our industry (online marketing) sees millions and millions of dollars going through it every month, yet I NEVER see online companies (like NPN), or individuals doing anything with that money to help people that really need it – at least not publicly.

Maybe this will encourage you to promote NPN more, maybe not. Maybe it will encourage more people to join NPN at the upgraded levels (since that’s where the bonus money comes from).. and maybe not. Doesn’t make a difference to me. But I know it can make a difference to others.

This month your efforts bought a Flock of Ducks, a Flock of Chicks, and an Earth Basket at

Hopefully we can all do more next month!

Have a great day.

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

From the depths of Geoff’s 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,
– Geoff
