Interview with George Kosch: How does Worldprofit help people in OTHER opportunities and affiliate programs build their online business?

I sat down today for an interview with George Kosch, co-founder and Technical Director at Worldprofit Inc.  

George Kosch is one of those refreshingly down-to-earth techies that doesn’t speak above your head. He’s a gifted programmer and for the last twenty years has been the technical visionary that has created the platform for all Worldprofit products and services.  Worldprofit provides training, support and unique proprietary software to help people work and profit from home using the power of the internet.

Question: George, Worldprofit offers a Reseller program called a Dealership, that allows people to earn income by promoting your company’s services but how can Worldprofit help those who have their own programs, affiliates and business opportunities already?

Says George:  ‘Some people come to Worldprofit looking to make money online and have nothing to sell, so we provide hundreds of recommended trusted products and services that can be sold and delivered online. Others come to Worldprofit and they’re already involved in any number of online affiliate programs. They have something to sell, they just don’t  have any idea how to do that. Or they have tried and not had any success or earnings to show for it.

So first we teach people how to promote.  Online marketing is new to most people. Most have no idea where to start, what to promote, where to promote and what you have to do to get results.

We offer an online training program, called our Home Business Bootcamp.  We have something for newbies and for advanced marketers in our 75 lesson plan that allows Members to progress at their own pace and learn as they earn.

In our online training, we teach marketing fundamentals including:   

  • landing pages 
  • lead capture 
  • list building strategies 
  • SEO techniques 
  • Blogging 
  • Article Marketing 
  • E-book creation 
  • Promotion and Advertising 
  • Prospect management 
  • Newsletters 
  • Ad Tracking 
  • Web Stats 
  • Offer Building 
  • Free versus paid advertising
  • how to recognize bogus advertising sources 
  • how to recognize legitimate advertising sources
  • Social Networking

George went on to say. 

“We also teach our Members how to use the tools and resources  included in our membership along with our self-developed strategies to promote any and all their online businesses.

The model for promoting online is the same no matter what you are promoting. We like to say we teach our Members how to ride a bike by teaching them the Worldprofit system, once learned they can then ride any bike, and apply the marketing principles to build any online business.   

One of the advantages we have at Worldprofit is that after being around for twenty years, we have formed many partnerships and also developed complimentary sites and services that benefit our Members. This permits us enormous leverage for making offers, buying advertising, traffic and doing exchanges which our Members can tap into exclusively and use for promoting ANY online business, product or service.”

Question: George, what makes Worldprofit different?

“We are a 100% hands-on company. We teach people how to market using tools, and strategies that we ourselves use consistently, or have developed and tested ourselves.    As a programmer and as a marketer myself, I have my finger on the pulse of the industry. I  can spot trends, identify needs, and build exactly what our members need.  We recognize that there are lots of peddlers out there making promises who don’t stand behind what they sell. At Worldprofit we support the products and services we offer with our stand-out support team, 365 days of the year. This is unheard of in our industry and is what makes Worldprofit an industry leader.  We continually update our Home Business Bootcamp training lessons, we include video training tutorials, and we have LIVE weekly interactive training so our Members are never left without support or help as required.   Our Worldprofit Live Business Center holds the record for longest continual webcast, operating 24 hours a day. There are tons of software products out there, the difference we offer is that we are here to help people when they need it. It’s not the software or latest gadget that is going to help you build your successful online business, it’s training, and support offered by real people in the industry working along side of you. That’s what we do at Worldprofit, we work daily with our Members. We are connected and reliant on our Members just as much as they are to us. 

Question: George, I understand the company just celebrated it’s 19th birthday, what to you see is the future for Worldprofit for the next 20 years? 

“Online business opportunities have exploded in recent years, and that has meant our sales at Worldprofit have grown 10 fold.  We have now surpassed 1.5 million free members and are on our way shortly to 2 million members.  People like the idea of working from home, and the web has introduced unlimited earning opportunities, something for everyone. At Worldprofit we offer our own Reseller program but we have very much evolved into a training company in the last ten years especially, as people appreciate that affiliate marketing as a legitimate way to make extra money.   As more people participate in online earning programs they all need one thing – help in promoting whatever business they choose.   That’s where we pride ourselves,  in doing the research and development to put into the hands of our Members, exactly what they need to build a successful online business – no matter what that business or affiliate program.  Technology is always changing, there is no standing still in this industry. We must always be working hard to keep our members happy and appreciative of the value we offer at Worldprofit and we plan to keep doing just that.   

Thank you George for your time today.

Promoting CLICKBANK? Better read this.

Many of our Worldprofit Members are actively promoting ClickBank (CB) products.

Recognizing this, we have created for our Worldprofit  Members  the CB Maximizer.

The CB Maximizer was designed to offer you an automated way to sell ClickBank products 

What we have done for you is create automated landing pages, here is an example: http://www.cashquest.com/superbonus/
This is a lead generating system to capture the contact information of your prospective buyer. A bonus is offered to entice the reader to enter their contact details, and allow them to optin to receive your mailings.   When they optin,  the person then goes on to a special autoresponder list. Every two days your prospective buyer will be sent random products from your Clickbank Promo Kit (more on the CB Promo Kit in another lesson).  They can optout anytime should they choose to do so.   Every 2 days, they will get a CB Product letter with your CLOAKED links. This includes a signature file from our new PROFILE area (right under your name on the top left menu) which includes your promo links. We also include a link for them to get 50,000 free visitors and much much more. That means every 2 days you are marketing EVERYTHING IN YOUR ARSENAL to hundreds of people –> EVERY TWO DAYS!! Think of the money stream this means for yo! u.

How do you use the CB Maximizer to earn money?

Easy, you send out the letters to all of your safelists in the SAME way you send out the CB promo kit letters. Every day you market just as you would with the regular promo kit except the results change. How? You get leads on your CB Maximizer Autoresponse System!!! And, you get to see who is on and get a DAILY REPORT sent to your email of what is happending in your business.

We urge you to now watch this short screencast video that overviews the CB Maximizer so you can see how it works, and how you earn money with this software.

Video Overview of CB Maximizer: http://www.worldprofit.com/dealers/trainingscreenvideos/cbMaximizer/

Here’s how to access more information on the CB Maximizer:

In your Member area, on left menu, select CLICKBANK STORE, then select CLICKBANK MAXIMIZER

Take this QUIZ to make sure you are on the right track

Worldprofit Home Business System: Self Quiz

Take this self quiz to make sure you are on track and doing the critical tasks required to succeed in Worldprofit’s Home Business Program.

1. Have you taken a good look at all of the tools and resources in your Member area?
I mean a really good look not a glance!  Your Worldprofit Member area is PACKED with tools, resources, training videos and software to help you build your business and see how you earn with Worldprofit. Take the time to click on the links from the left and top menu to get a true appreciation for the value you have at your finger tips.
But don’t get distracted by all that you see, it’s tempting to do too much exploring and not dig into the training so you can get on track for making money, so see Question 2 below! 
 
2.  Have you started the Bootcamp Training?
I don’t mean have you watched some videos? I mean have you started the Levels of the Bootcamp and done the work to progress though each level?
We have over 70 lessons that you can go through at your own pace to learn all about online marketing, and how to benefit from what’s included in your Membership.
If you want to succeed at Worldprofit you MUST take advantage of the training and this means following the levels of the Bootcamp training.
Each level has tasks for you to complete. When you have completed all 8 Levels you graduate from Bootcamp as a Worldprofit Certified E-Business Consultant.
If you haven’t started, here is how to get started on the Bootcamp Training. Within your Member area directly below the Live Business Center are your tasks for each level, follow those instructions to stay on track.
Resist the temptation to jump ahead! You will get lost, you will get frustrated and you will want to quit. We DON’T WANT you to quit! We know that those who are patient, do the training and work consistently will graduate and start earning from your effort.    
    
3. Have you joined the Safelists and Traffic Exchanges in your Member area?
If not, on the left menu in your Member area, click on ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC then on Top Safelists. Follow the instructions INCLUDING the IMPORTANT TIPS.   When you have done that,  in the same section (ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC) click on Top Traffic Exchanges. Follow the instructions posted there INCLUDING the IMPORTANT TIPS .  These Safelists and Traffic Exchanges are very important! Do not underestimate the importance of these.  This is time well spent.

2. Are you promoting the Landing pages ONLY and NOT your home page (website)?
Do NOT promote your website, use the Landing Pages to capture leads.  George Kosch explains why in his weekly bootcamp training sessions.
Hint: Landing pages both generate leads AND build your email marketing list – two critical keys to earning.
Find the Landing pages in your Member area, on left menu, select Advertising/Traffic then Landing Pages.

3. Are you promoting the Landing Pages every day (or as often as permitted) to the list of Safelist and Ad Exchanges we list in Member area?
If not, on the left menu in your Member area, click on ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC then Safelists and Exchanges to get started.
CONSISTENT promotion is the key. 

4. Do you have a minimum of 200 Clicks per day showing on your Ad Tracker?
To see a conversion to sales, you need a minimum of 200 clicks per day to your ads from REAL reputable sources.
Not everyone will upgrade from a free Associate Membership to a Silver Membership. This is why you must have a steady supply of Associates derived from your promotion efforts.  The more Associates you bring in from reputable sources the better!  When  Associates login, the Monitors and Dr. Lant make your Associates an offer. If you don’t bring in Associates you have any one to be converted to a sale. After you have completed a promotion, check your Ad Tracker stats, by clicking on AdTracker in your member area on Top Menu.  Your Ad Tracker is a critical tool to help you evaluate the effectiveness of your advertising.

5. Are you buying traffic or leads from sources not on our list of recommended places to promote?
We list trusted advertising sources and offer you reputable lead sources and ad co-ops within your Member area.
Start with our list of trusted sources so you get quality leads. In your Member area, click on ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC then on Top Safelists and Exchanges to get started. Not all leads and advertising is equal, that is why we urge you to use the list of sources we recommend in your Member area.

6. Are you attending either the LIVE training on Friday’s with George Kosch or watching the recorded version?
If not check the schedule for the next live event, access the recorded training from TOP Menu click on TRAINING.
You won’t succeed if you don’t watch the training then APPLY on a consistent basis the steps that George teaches.
If you are new to Worldprofit watch the BASIC TRAINING which is for Beginners and new Members.
This training is for YOU!  Please, please, please take advantage of this.

Now, if you have been with Worldprofit for a while, or have graduated from Bootcamp, here is some additional help for you.

Follow the steps of the bootcamp training and also do this:
a) Spend time in the Live Business Center watching and learning from Dr. Lant and the Monitors so you understand the system.
b) Consider being a Monitor. It’s your opportunity to learn from marketing expert Dr. Lant. Monitors get lots of perks for volunteering their time.
c) Take advantage of all the training tools, and videos in your member area. Look on Top Menu under TRAINING.
d) Post to your Newsletter / Email lists on a regular basis about 3 times per week. Vary your offers, your subject lines and your ad copy for best results.
e) If your budget permits, consider buying memberships at the paid recommended ad sites we list and recommend in your Member area.   
f) Worldprofit offers an ad co-op it is called FastTrack. We post ads in proven sites and we email you the Associate sign ups as they come in. Costs start at $29.95. Details are in your member area  under ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC then click on FASTRACK.    

Goals to guide you:  (print these out and post on computer to keep this fresh in your mind)

Goal 1: Recruit Associates every day!
The key to success in Worldprofit’s program is to sign up Associates daily. The higher the number of Associates you have the higher sales conversion you will enjoy. Remember Associates can buy ANY of the offerings you have available as a Worldprofit Member; ClickBank, Resellers Products, Money Makers products, your own Affiliate Programs, as well as Silver and Platinum memberships.  The bootcamp provides you with the training on how to use our tools for promotion to generate Associate signups.  When you sign up Associates you are building your list. George explains this in his bootcamp training. The value of a large list is that you have a list of potential buyers for ANYTHING you are selling, including ClickBank, your own Affiliate programs, your own products or services, or Worldprofit services.   We are teaching you to build an online business and sell ANYTHING, not just Worldprofit services.  When you sign up Associates you are bringing people into Worldprofit, and building your own list and options.

Goal 2:  Promote every day!
Some of you have never run any type if business, this online business is your first. But you are not ALONE, we have the training, tools, support and resources to help you if YOU take responsibility to use them. Your business does not take a holiday. You will not make sales without consistent action. YOU, and only YOU must work your business every single day to see results.  Yes, it’s hard work there are no short cuts to success but isn’t having some extra income worth your effort?   

 

 

Goal 3: Be Postive and Realistic!
Stay positive about your business but at the same time be realistic.  Work hard, work consistently. Don’t be a reader, just a student and never DO anything.  To make things happen you must apply with enthusiasm what you are taught. Be realistic that your business will take time to grow and know that we are here to help and support  you along the way.  

Last words:

Be patient. It takes time to build ANY business. You are learning new skills, this takes time and practice. You’ve had the courage to try something new, you have found a  company eager to help you. Give yourself time, commit to yourself and your abilities.

Did you know that Worldprofit’s Top Sellers have access to the EXACT same tools in their Member are as you do? The only difference is YOU and your level of understanding and commitment to your own success.  

All of our Top Sellers have been frustrated at one time or another. It’s a tough business but they worked their business daily and gave our system the time to show results.  We want to see your success too.

The 7 numbers that ensure business sales, profits, and wealth. I’ll tell you the secret… but I bet you won’t use it! Yet you SAY you want to make money. Pshaw!

by Dr. Jeffrey Lant.

Author’s program note. It’s far too early in the morning for me to be up and
at ’em like I am. But I’m on a rescue mission, yeah, a real Florence Nightingale.
I’m about nothing less than saving your bacon by sharing — and in every particular —
one absolutely crucial piece of advice; advice that spells the difference between
just getting by in your business, profits scarce and spotty and making M-O-N-E-Y!

Let me ask you a question, and ask it in all seriousness. Do you REALLY want
a business that makes you money EVERY SINGLE DAY? I know you. At this point
in the drama, you’re going to tell me — because you might actually believe — that
you are doing every single thing  you can do to get people to call you. And because
you believe this and actually believe that you are already doing it, that you don’t
need to do another thing.

I’m here to tell you different, and the extent to which you “get” what I’m revealing
here is the extent to which you make money.

Let’s start by looking at the marketing documents you’ve got now for therein lies
the problem… AND the solution.

You want customers… but you aren’t doing everything on Earth to get them to
call you… amazing!

It’s time to take a good close look at the marketing documents you are using
right now.

Unless you have good counter tops with plenty of clear space at the ready, it’s time
to put the ol’ kitchen table to work  — again; the venerated place from which you may
have launched the business you planned to be a glory to the world, an ever growing
financial cornucopia for your old age. Just sitting at this table again, the dreams of
Auld Lang Syne rising ineluctably to the surface, may be a jolt, especially if the big
dreams of yesterday have generated nothing more than the puny results of today.
Let’s take a look…

It’s time to drag out every single marketing document you’re using, developing, or
planning to use. It’s time you put each one under a microscope and take a real good
look-see at precisely what marketing you’re doing… not merely what you think you’re
doing. Be prepared for the shock of your life. Get a good strong chair and the smelling
salts you’re sure to need… and maybe a friend or two or three with palmetto fans and
balm for your ego, about to be severely bruised. Ready? Then let’s get going on
your hunting and gathering expedition.

List every single form of marketing you are currently using offline… and on; that is
brochures, Yellow Pages ads, anything you mail, package stuffers, match book covers,
media releases, catalogs, articles and books, messages on envelopes… get the
picture? This phase of Operation Profit is going to take a while because you have
never, ever done this;  thereby depriving you of seeing — in one place — every single
thing you are using and PAYING FOR to generate more business and generate it NOW.

Look closely, breathe deeply.

The first thing to consider after you’ve artfully arranged every single marketing document
you’re using in front of you is this sobering thought: you have spent a ton of money on
this stuff. But is it working; is it, that is, making you money? At this crucial moment in
your affaires, you cannot afford to THINK. Instead, you must KNOW. You must be
stern, unyielding, absolutely 100% focused on what you’re spending… and what you’re
getting; an accounting which will very likely make you most glum and chagrined indeed.
That’s a shame… but you cannot advance without this critical analysis. You cannot
afford to be a sissy now, and that’s a fact.

The close scrutiny that can  pay off big time IF you learn from it and make all the
necessary changes — FAST!

First, does every single marketing communication include your name, address,
email address, URL, AND phone number? Remember this: your marketing
communications are only as good, as useful, and as remunerative as they should
be IF and ONLY IF they contain COMPLETE follow-up details. If they don’t, then
you won’t get the #1 thing you want: BUSINESS.

But merely including this crucial information isn’t enough, not by a long shot. Rather,
you must give your prospects a reason to CALL YOU RIGHT NOW, not a day from
now, not an hour from now but RIGHT THIS MINUTE. And for this to happen, you
must give your prospects a reason to call NOW, immediately, at once, no excuses
whatsoever, no excuses at all.

Have you provided this absolutely essential sine qua non of successful business,
or have you rather presumed that your customers would know what to do and do it,
thereby placing the burden for action on the customer, rather than where it must be:
ON YOU!

Now for the meat and potatoes of what makes you, yes YOU, such a rotten
marketer: You haven’t MOTIVATED and ASKED the prospect to call you. You haven’t
given her a reason to call you NOW! Instead you sat back confident, obstinate,
stubborn in your blind smug assurance that THEY should call YOU without a reason,
an offer, even an invitation; celestial know-it-all that you are instead of doing what is
necessary, what is mandatory to get these all-important beings, the fountain of wealth
to call you NOW, this very minute.

Look at the panoply of marketing communications before you, the communications
on which you’re betting the ranch. Does any one, even a single one, open with
an offer, any benefit at all, for picking up the phone AT ONCE so that you can use
your magic to make them better off and make yourself more money? Even a single
one?

The plain, honest and horrifying truth is that you are sending out thousands, hundreds
of thousand and over your business career, MILLIONS of marketing communications
that aren’t delivering the customers you must have to get rich. And it’s all your fault…

No call to action. No benefit to call about. No business. No wonder!

Here’s what you need to do… so that motivated prospects call you… 24/7/365,
a wide world of prospects, clambering for the benefits that you, YOU, can deliver,
you lucky dog.

Brainstorm motivating language, test, re-write, test again, then dance ’cause. cuz’,
you are (finally) doing it right.

Try this: “FREE consultation ($150 value). Expert shows you how to make money
online. Call (phone number) 24/7 NOW! Profit today!”

Now the acid test. Does even one of your marketing communications open
with an offer like this? No? Not even one? Well, then, what you’re saying is
this, “I want your business. I want your money. But I’ll do as little as possible
to get it.” Wow, what a charmer you are, you are, what a wonderful charmer
you are —  not! Under the circumstances, with you doing so little to get your
prospects to respond, it is hardly surprising that they don’t.

Cut your throat, or cut your losses and PROFIT. Your choice.

Having read this article, you now have two choices. Continue along the road
you’re now on, the road featuring maximum hubris with minimal results. Or
the straight and sure highway to profits, more profits, and predictable wealth.
You’ll tell me, of course, you’ll take remunerative option 2, but we both know
you, don’t we? You’ll say you’ll do better; you’ll actually mean it, for a day or
two. Then back to the same ol’ same ol’, doing more of what has returned so
little.

But at least one of you will heed my strict and certain admonitions, and you’ll
get rich, really rich. Thus for you I have that indefatigable energy machine, James
Brown and his anthem for people who love money and, with my help, are well
on their way to getting it…. “I Feel Good.”

Find it in any search engine now (recorded 1965) . Play it loud and proud….

“Whoa-oa-oa. I feel good, I knew that I would, now.
I feel good, I knew that I would, now
So good, so good, I got you.”

And that, cuz’, is nothing but the glorious truth. Yeah!

Let Dr. Lant know by posting your comments below.

You’ve seen the emails, the offers, the promises and the claims. Everyone it seems has a way to help you make money online.

But how do you know who you can trust? How do you know what system works? How do you protect yourself?

The fact is that you CAN earn money online from legitimate sources, here’s what to look for when picking an online business opportunity.

Products or Services with actual value

Many companies including large companies like Amazon and ClickBank offer what is known as an Affiliate marketing program, or sometimes called a Reseller program. This allows you to promote a company’s products or services and earn a commission when a sale is made through your website link.   The key in knowing what is legitimate is to be sure you are actually promoting a real product, or a digital product, or an actually service.  Beware of selling anything that seems without substance, and has no real market value.   An example of something suspect would be getting paid to recruit people into a program who have not paid any money to do so.  All business online and off works when there is an exchange of money for a product or service.    Pyramid schemes exist online and off and are an example of focus on recruitment into a program rather then the sale of an actual product. In the case of a pyramid scheme, and example is someone paying to join a program but receives no product or service of REAL value in return.  In short, make sure that you are actually selling something of value.

Customer Service and Support

Legitimate companies that sell actual products and services will support or service what they sell. In other words, good companies will have a Customer Support Department, or a Service Department or Technical Support division to assist customers who have either bought a product or intend to do so.    Reputable companies offer this support in any number of ways, online chat, support forums, Twitter, Facebook, telephone support, or online support.

Time in business

Legitimate business opportunities most trustworthy are often those that have stood the test of time.  On the web it is very easy to set up a company, sell questionable products and services, then disappear into the night when the business practices come into question.   When picking an online business opportunity select a company that has been around for at least a few years. Companies that continue to exist are usually those that demonstrate an interest in keeping their customers happy, are accountable, and adhere to policy and legislation that permits them to provide a product or service.

Reputation

When picking a reputable business opportunity people will often look to review sites for feedback from others. This can offer you some interesting details about what people think about a company and how the company responds to complaints.  In reading the reviews though keep an open mind knowing that no company exists without complaints against it. Good companies that you would want to associate with, are those that try to address customer complaints or resolve issues brought to their attention.  People with an axe to grind will sometime post negative reviews and hide in the anonymity of that post.  So be  smart when reading review sites, and look for dates, patterns or themes and try to separate the intelligent comments from the less helpful and questionable ones.

Look before you leap

When you decide on which business opportunity you wish to join, be sure to take your time and read over what you are agreeing to before you sign on the dotted line or hit the submit button. Determine what your up front cost is, your monthly cost (if any), your ongoing cost? What happens if you want to cancel, is there a guarantee, or is there any long term obligation or a penalty for cancelling?  Find out how your sales will be tracked, how often will you paid, for which services and how will you be paid.

In summary, here are 5 questions to ask yourself for any company you are considering for a home business opportunity.

1. How long has the company been in business? What is their reputation?

2. What is the product or service you will be selling? What is the value in the market place? There should ALWAYS be a product or service being sold.

3. What is the initial cost to get started in the business? What do you get for that amount of money? What are the ongoing costs?

4. What kind of support or service will you receive as an Affiliate Marketer or Reseller for the company to help you make sales? What kind of support of service will the people you refer receive when they make a purchase?

5. How much money are you paid by this company when you make a sale, how often, and how will your sales be tracked?

These questions and information contained within are a guideline to help you make a smart decision about an online business opportunity that is right for you.

One final bit of advise. Once you have found a company to represent be sure to be realistic about your earnings and accept some responsibility for your own success.  At the end of the day, your success comes down to you, and your efforts.  It won’t matter what business opportunity you select if you don’t take the time to learn about the program, learn how to market online, and make an honest consistent effort to build your own success.

I hope this has helped you so you can select one or more legitimate companies and you can join the growing population of people making money at home using the power of the web.
