The GDI affiliate program offers a unique opportunity to those interested. While GDI effectively does the marketing for you, your affiliate opportunity is still your business. GDI does much of the work, but you still need to take on the role of business owner in a few ways. One is how you work with your team, new signups, and everyone who has the slightest possibility of being interested.

 Offer Help to All

As with any business, you can’t reserve pleasantries and helpfulness just for guaranteed customers. Often times you might not know right away if someone is going to be worth your effort, but you still need to give 100% to every person you work with. Having your own business requires you to treat everyone as a potential customer and that is no different for being an affiliate with GDI. So answer questions and be helpful and friendly no matter if someone is a new team member, old team member, or someone who may or may not be interested.

Provide Help Before It’s Needed

You may walk into a grocery store knowing what you need, but chances are you still need to follow the signs on each aisle to find everything you’re looking for. This is a business answering your questions before you have to ask. Treat your potential signups and new team members this way. Think of questions they may have and have their answers already there for them in the form of blog posts, videos or your website. Providing help before it’s needed can help you to hang on to leads.

You probably market yourself everyday, whether it’s for a raise at work, negotiating with a teacher or simply making plans with a busy person. You’re marketing yourself in each interaction.

What does it do?

So now you know exactly what GDI has to offer, but what can it do for someone? Get a deeper understanding of the products and services by brainstorming all the ways they can be utilized. The more ways you can think up to utilize GDI’s products and services, the more ways you can market them.

Who needs it?

Now that you’ve answered the first two questions, it’s time to think about your audience. Not just anyone, but your target audience. Who would benefit most from GDI? Who would work hardest to build their business? Identify your ideal audience then go find them! What kind of online behaviors do these people have? What sites are they most likely to visit?
