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.

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
