Keith Bless, our Spotlight Affiliate, had so much to share that we split his interview into two parts. In part two you will learn a little bit more about Keith’s specific work with GDI and how he spends his time when he’s not building his business. Read on.
How much time to you devote to the GDI each week?
This is hard to say, as I make it a point to CONSISTENTLY be learning, growing, and in dialogue with my social media contacts and/or my email subscribers. Basically it is hard to tell sometimes when I’m “on the clock” or “off the clock,” if that makes sense.
Becoming a better person, marketer, and transparent leader has really become more of a lifestyle I’m learning, rather than just a list of tasks that I do. Therefore, it is tough for me to measure my “work” in time.
What is your favorite GDI Bonus?
This is a tough question. Certainly the Weekly Superstar bonus is the easiest to leverage into financial success. After all, GDI pays out $100 to bring in $50 of revenue? Can’t beat that! Rack up a few of those, and you can fund your business to be well on your way!
That said, the Team Bonus allows people to get partnered up outside of their lines of sponsorship, and that’s a powerful thing, especially for people who DON’T (unfortunately) have the great sponsor support I have. Still, my heart says that The Learning Bonus is my favorite. After all, GDI basically provides a checklist to “learn” your back office, and essentially rewards new affiliates for getting to know the tools, products, and services. I remember how hard it was to be new, and I appreciate that GDI has this tool in place.
Whenever somebody asks “where do I get started?” on the GDI corporate Facebook page, I always chime in with “Earn the Learning Bonus.”
What bonuses have you won?
Well, most of the current bonuses didn’t even exist when I got started, so I will mention this: About a year ago, I won a “Big Tippers” contest on the GDI Affiliate Blog. I took the $100 I won and invested it into a lifetime membership with advertising tool that I use to grow my email list and presence on the internet. (And I can also share it with my team.) If I had not won that contest, I probably wouldn’t have invested/risked $100 to purchase this tool that I NOW trust and plan to use for “forever.”
When you’re not promoting GDI, what do you like to do?
I coach high school golf and also help to teach a class of third to fifth grade boys at my church. I am married with four children, so I don’t have much time to spare! Like I said, earlier, though, I am always, always, looking for lessons learned and content to share with my social media contacts and email subscribers.
