Flashback Post: Your Best Tips to Succeed wtih GDI

This post originally appeared in October 2011

At GDI, we want to share our best tips for creating your own Income for Life. Some of our best tips often come from experienced affiliates who have been with GDI, made money with GDI and worked through obstacles. So we reached out to you for your best tips. And now we’re sharing them! Check them out below.

Take Your Time to Learn Marketing Strategies from a Good MentorPaul on Facebook

This is a great tip that many tend to bypass. It’s easy to want to jump as fast as you can into a new business, but if you don’t take the time to learn that business, it will be a much slower process for you to succeed. The GDI affiliate program is designed in such a way that everyone should have that mentor. As in the 9-5 corporate world, you need to be careful of who you do business with and do your research. Really talk to someone before you sign up with them to make sure they are committed to you and your success as much as their own. These are the people who will share what works for them and educate their team on marketing tips and strategies to be successful with GDI.

This is the same if you are trying to get someone to join your team. Show that you are capable of being that great mentor and helping your entire team grow and thrive. Take the time to educate your team members on what you have learned so that they have the chance to be as successful as you.

Promote on You Tube, You Will Have Access to EveryoneJoseph on Facebook

This is just another reason why video marketing is so popular. When you create video, you want to add it to your personal GDI site, but also make sure it is available on YouTube. This way you will be open to people who are browsing YouTube and learning more, but haven’t quite made it to GDI or your specific site yet. This opens a whole new potential network for you and as Joseph said gives you access to everyone in the world (who is browsing YouTube of course!). Combined with easy access, YouTube videos are also very easy to share and embed anywhere.

Stay Determined and FocusedSilas on Facebook

We talked about this recently, but it’s important enough to repeat. To succeed in any business you must remain determined and focus on your goals. Setbacks will happen, but it is important to work through them if you ultimately want to be successful. Remember to set goals and focus on them. Perhaps you joined GDI on a whim, not knowing what to expect back. You need to decide what you would like back. Set goals, create a plan to attain them and stay focused and determined!

Get Your Contact List Together and Send Emails Through GDI Darryl on Twitter

This is another important tip that we have covered on the blog before. The Inviter is an awesome tool to quickly get out emails with your GDI website to all of your contacts. The more people you share your opportunity with, the better your odds are for building your team. Log into your Members Area and start using the Inviter today.

Don’t Try to Reinvent the WheelDarryl on Twitter

If you’ve ever attended one of our webinars, this is something you have heard over and over and for good reason! GDI is an easy opportunity and there is no need to overcomplicate it. When you start to overcomplicate things, it’s too hard for your team to understand and replicate that success and you may even be scaring off potential team members. A good way to succeed with GDI is to find out what works for you and how to replicate that simply and easily so that others can be as successful. Talk to your upline or other affiliates and find what works for them, with some trial and error you will find the plan that works for you.

Good luck! Share any tips you think we missed in the comments!

GDI Learning Bonus: 2013 Tips

LearningBonusOur easiest to achieve bonus has been in full swing for over a year now. We’ve had many new affiliates earn their $25Learning Bonus and many more just a few steps away. If you’re new and want to earn your $25, here are a few tips to make sure you earn it on time.

Set up the proper email

Having the right email address set up helps to accomplish two steps on the way to your bonus. First, you must create a “GDI” email address at your domain. That means on of the addresses on your .WS email account should be gdi@yourdomain.ws. Later in the steps you need to email learningbonus@wsdomains.ws from that address. Emailing learningbonus@wsdomains.ws from any other address will not count as a completed step.

Choose your service, but don’t worry about changing it

The fifth step of the Learning Bonus requires you to set up a WebSite using either WordPress or SiteBuilder. If you’re not sure which service you want to use or wish to use neither in favor of hosting later, that’s OK. Simply choose a service for now and create your WebSite. You can change your service once you’ve earned your bonus.

Use any Inviter you like

Step three asks you to send five invites with a GDI Inviter. This means you can use whichever Inviter you would like whether you have a Basic or Premium account.  Send out five invites with either Inviter and you can cross off this step!

GDI Around the World: Helpful Tips

Around6Our newest contest launched on Monday. You can find full rules HERE. Below you’ll find a few tips to ensure your submission is counted and has a chance to win.

Stay Away from Photoshop

We want you to show the world just how many places you can be from and work from as a GDI affiliate. This means taking a picture with your sign while you’re somewhere you want to show off. So print out your sign, hold it up and snap a picture. Don’t reuse old photos and edit the banner in, we want the real deal.

Submit Again and Again

There’s no limit to the places you can work from and there’s no limit to how many pins you can submit. If you have five different places you want to show off, take a picture in all of them and pin them to share. If you have just one special place, that works too. Just keep sharing.

Your Board and Letting Us Know

Create a board of your own titled “GDI Around the World.” First log in to Pinterest and load your pin to this board and then let us know on Facebook or Twitter that you’ve added this new pin. We will check it out and decide if it’s worthy of a repin on GDICorporate’s “GDI Around the World Board.” Remember, to ensure your pin is eligible it must be a real picture with the banner in it. We’re proud of your Photoshop skills, but now is not the time to show them off.
