Beginner Questions: Promote the Product or Affiliate Program?

affiliate programAre you a beginner and unsure what to do next to build income? First, you must identify what you want to promote: the affiliate income opportunity or GDI’s products. Here are a few steps to help you answer this question.

How well do you understand GDI’s product and services?

All of our members should understand the website hosting and email that GDI offers and better yet take advantage of it. But since we know this may not be the case for everyone, decide where you fall. Do you use a replicated site and have no interest in hosting? Well then you are someone who should be advertising the opportunity. It doesn’t make sense to try to explain and sell someone on something you aren’t using yourself.

If you are someone who takes advantage of GDI website hosting and know every in and out of the product, you are someone who should be selling the product. If you love the product people will be able to see that and want to get on board with it.

What kind of people do you work best with?

Do you work best with people who get really excited about a new idea or offering, or do you prefer to work with people who take a more analytical approach. A lot of this can be based on your own experience and is in no way a scientific fact, but try to take personality types into account when trying to get someone into your downline.

Someone who is very excitable and good at getting others excited, could be very good at selling the opportunity, and this is someone you may want to work with if you feel the same. Someone who takes a more calculated look at things may need a little more of a push could really benefit from being sold the product and explained the virtues of it in combination with the opportunity. Try to figure out the kind of people you want in your downline and it will help you decide what you should be selling.

What is your presentation style?

Your presentation style is a combination of the answers to the two questions. Try to mix your personality with what you know and you will be able to see what you are better at selling.

How about both?

You can follow the steps above to stick with selling either the product or the opportunity, or you could do both. Don’t limit yourself on only trying to sell one aspect of GDI, you have multiple selling points at your fingertips, so use this to your advantage. Get educated on the product, refine your pitch and decide what you want to sell on a person to person basis.

Leadership Opportunities and Support: More Benefits of the Team Bonus

Our new Team Bonus gives you a chance to earn a lot of cash while working with others. While the cash winnings is the big draw, the bonus also gives affiliates a chance to work with new people, learn from others, and get and give support. Walking away with the big bonus is the best, but here are a few other benefits we think you can get from the new Team Bonus.

Support outside Your Upline

Whether you are joining a team or creating a team, you can work with whomever you like. Teams in the Team Bonus do not have to follow your current upline or downline. This gives you a chance to work with other affiliates that you may not have had before. If you really like the way another affiliate does business or notice them on the Leaderboard every week, this is your chance to work with them. Even better, you can change teams each month, allowing you to find the perfect fit or just work with many different affiliates.

Position Yourself as a Leader

Think you’ve got what it takes to be a top affiliate but are still struggling to get on the individual Leaderboard? The Team Bonus is a chance for you to establish yourself as a leader and bring in some cash. You can now work with other affiliates to help you to a bonus and to the Team Bonus Leaderboards, helping to establish you as a top affiliate.

Learn from Your Affiliates

Since everyone must work together to bring in signups and build toward the bonus, the Team Bonus is a great chance to gain and share knowledge. As you can see with the multipliers, it is in everyone’s favor for each team member to succeed. This means if you see someone struggling, you can help them out and vice versa. When you join a team, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Your success can mean big payouts for everyone involved.

Learn to work as a Team

We always tout the power of relationships in affiliate marketing and GDI, but now you can see it at work first hand. Affiliates who wish to be successful with the Team Bonus must work as a team. This new team attitude will hopefully spread to your upline and downline, making for great communication and education regardless of bonus level.

I Don’t Want a Domain

As you market your opportunity and the GDI products, you will encounter people with many different needs. Some may want a domain and not be interested in the affiliate program, other may want their own personal email address, while others still may see no need for a domain at all. How do you market to these people? How do you get someone on board who does not see the power in having their own domain name? We share three tips.


The simplest response to someone who does not want their own domain is to explain the power of a personalized domain. A domain gives you the unique opportunity to brand yourself, your business and your future. At $10 per month, GDI gives people of all levels and abilities the opportunity to build their own website, have 10 personalized email addresses and maintain their own personalized domain. Whether it is on social media or email, people are advertising for other companies each time they access the internet. They are Facebook.com/BobSmith and bobsmith@yahoo.com. Why not take the opportunity to be bobsmith.ws and advertise YOU and build your own online experience. Having an online presence is extremely important and the more personalized, the better.

Affiliate Opportunity

GDI offers a great affiliate opportunity and some of our affiliates do not take advantage of the products, but solely the opportunity. Many people are interested in building their business and may or may not be interested in building a website themselves. Simply market GDI as the great affiliate opportunity it is and explain to people they don’t have build their website to build their team, but it will help them if they do.

Email Services

While someone may not be interested in a domain, email services are something we all need. GDI allows you a personalized email address unlike any other. Instead of BobSmith8765@gmail.com you can be Bob@Smith.ws giving the a great opportunity for branding whether you’re building your business or reaching out to others, your personalized email will stand out.
