It has come to my attention by a trusted program owner that StrictPay has closed their doors and taken all of the members’ funds on deposit in their accounts. There was no explanation for their decision and subsequent actions. The closure of StrictPay has absolutely no bearing on our program, but you need to know that you must be exceedingly careful when selecting a payment processor.
AlertPay is now changing their policies and imposing restrictions of program owners. This is not a healthy development and I have made a decision to no longer use AlertPay unless it happens to be the only payment processor used by a program.
It is my sincere recommendation that you no longer keep your funds in any payment processor. It is better and safer to use the service and maintain a zero account balance. You can deposit, transfer, and withdraw funds on an ‘as-needed’ basis from now on.
This is an important issue. Our program now has SolidTrustPay and PayItGlobal as proven payment processors. My preference is PayItGlobal, because I know the owner personally. I have spoken with the owner of STP on the phone and in emails, but I can offer no more confidence other than their presence on the Net is established and they have my trust at this time. However, if you have to choose between the two, then PayItGlobal is the PP of choice.
I have lost funds before to StormPay and others who didn’t have a solid business model or cash reserves. It leaves an indelible impression when you think that your funds are secure and then login to your account only to see a message that they are no longer in business. Your heart sinks…
We work hard for our money and there’s no point in letting a payment processor abscond with our funds. I want to emphasize how fortunate we are to have PayItGlobal to use for our program. It is secure, it is solid, it has cash reserves, and it is owned and operated by a trusted competent business with a man of integrity behind the company.
Keep your funds in your e-wallet until you need to withdraw them and then have them immediately sent to your bank account. This is the only way to interact with payment processors at this time of economic instability and turmoil. Be mindful and prudent in all of your financial transactions from this day forward…
If you don’t happen to have the time to go into Orange Leads every day to harvest your free Leads; then perhaps it might be easier for you to purchase quality Leads from OppSeekers.
OppSeekers has excellent Leads available for you which come in a variety of packages. You can choose Leads based upon different qualifying criteria. You can get Leads from Canada and even specify Leads from a particular state in America. You can select Female Leads Only. You can get Telephone Interviewed Leads and Phone Verified Leads among many others from this fine company. Most of the Leads are fresh and given to only two people from distinct companies, so there will be virtually no competition or duplication.
These Leads are fairly priced and there’s a special on right now where you get three Leads for the price of one. These are Phone Verified Leads.
Even if you do use your free Orange Leads, please let your downline members know about both Orange Leads and these quality OppSeekers Leads just in case they might be interested in purchasing Leads that have been well-qualified before you make contact with them.
We all need to share our program with people who are genuinely looking for a home-based business online. Our program is one of the strongest offers that could be presented to these people. The low cost of these high quality Leads will be worth every penny and all of the time that you spend with your connections with these people.

This morning I got an email from one of my most active members explaining that many people he speaks with have a negative attitude toward MLM and Network Marketing companies. These people have formed opinions of this business model from past experiences or other people who have had unfortunate encounters with this industry. That’s truly regretable, but it happens; so instead of trying to get these folks to change their minds, it is much better to spend your time surrounding yourself with people who understand the beauty, freedom, and financial stability of this business organizational structure.
While our program is not strictly considered to be an MLM company, it does share some features with the attributes that comprise most MLM companies or Network Marketing companies. We do use a 3×2 matrix to create a Team of twelve members to initiate a commission payment. We do have products and services that are valuable and meet all regulatory requirements in all countries around the world that are necessary to conduct business in a lawful manner. We do build lasting and meaningful business relationships with people from around the world.
Speaking of significant business relationships, I want to discuss the value of spending your time interacting with people through Social Networks. If you sell healthy cookies, you must network and strengthen your business relationships with your vendors, retail outlets, and suppliers. If you offer Lifetime Memberships in our program, you must network with other people to introduce them to eBooks, Business Training, and our business opportunity. If you want to sell more cookies; then you might want to expand your horizons by interacting with our international membership and reach out to expand your business by tapping into Social Networks. It’s just the nature of the business world.
When I owned my own Natural Foods Restaurant, I learned how to network to become very successful in my business. I am applying these same sound business practices to our program. When I fed a community healthy food, the Internet did not exist yet. But I advertised on the radio, in the newspaper, and by my involvement with different social groups. I continuously brought new business into my establishment and made wonderful new friends in the process. Now we have established Social Networks using the Net to connect with people who share our common interests through websites that are designed to facilitate our interactions. You might want to consider spending more time with the people who understand and appreciate networking by learning how to utilize the power of Social Networks to benefit your own business and support other people in their business endeavors.
These are but a few of the most commonly recognized Social Bookmarking and Social Networking sites. There are thousands more where you can make your mark and leave your footprint back to your business website. You will find 1273 of these sites on the Social Maximizer website with all of the URLs for you to visit these sites or select them for the SM Bookmarking service. Millions of people visit these sites every day to find out what’s happening now on the Net. If you are serious about branding yourself and your business; then you will be visible at as many of these sites as humanly possible which apply to your market niche.
People who WANT to do business with you will find you on these Social Networks. People who you WANT to do business with are found on these sites. Social Networks are an integral part of our business and the new world of Internet Marketing which more accurately describes our program. Although our business model is expansive in that it allows us to work online and in the world where you have to place cookies on the shelves of stores for customers to find them. Our company incorporates the best of all worlds.
While Facebook and MySpace are saturated with shady characters, most companies still insist upon having a presence on these Social Networks. The rules keep changing to make them better and even a recent movie release describes the rise of these unique social organizations over the last few years. All of the real ‘movers and shakers’ today will establish a place on numerous Social Networks and use them daily to build their business and expand their reach which is vital to the health of every business.
Here are two Social Networks that Internet Marketers have designed specifically for networking and business opportunity seekers. You can set up free accounts and start sharing important information about our program immediately. There are fantastic people who appreciate our industry to be found here. They will welcome you with open arms and together we will be supporting an industry and a ‘Way of Life’ that has enriched and nourished us to be better human beings.
In the future, we’ll introduce you to IM Faceplate, YourNight, and so many other Social Networks where you will find people of ‘like-mind’. You can forge authentic and lasting business relationships on sites with people who are sincere and genuine in their interest to make a living by offering quality products and services. If you know of a Social Network site that you have found to be particularly useful for your business, please leave the name of the site as a Comment.
The woman who makes cookies may never get my business, because I know nothing about her or her company. However, if she takes a moment to visit any one of these Social Networks and finds our presence there, she may actually change her opinion about our industry and reconsider her attitude toward our Internet Marketing industry which is growing, nurturing millions of people around the world, and making a good Life for our members. She can expand her horizons and learn more about the incredible changes that the Internet has given us to truly connect with one another with the sincere intent to improve the quality of Life for all of us – one member of humanity at a time.
When you put your mark on a Listing in a Directory, that small effort that takes but a minute to complete will pay you back for a very, very long time. The Listing in a Directory is usually permanent until your URL or company information changes and you need to update your Listing. It will be there working for you for months and years to come. However, you can enter a Listing in a Directory the easy way or the hard way – it’s your choice!
The hard way is time-consuming, yet still very effective. You have to go to each Directory and enter the information manually which generally takes a few minutes for each Listing. Since there are thousands of Directories on the Net, it can take you many months to continue to enter this data. It’s hard to discipline yourself with the time and effort that it takes to accomplish this task.
The hard way doesn’t usually cost anything except for your time and attention. As long as you have plenty of time and the patience it requires to complete forms and enter your details; then the hard way will produce results.
The easy way is preferable, but it usually costs a little to pay someone else to enter this information for you. It’s easy for many reasons. You pay a company which has an entire staff and systematic approach to speed up the process, so it happens faster than if you are doing it yourself in your spare time. The staff is familiar with each of the Directories and knows exactly what is required at each site, so that makes the use of time more efficient to get your Listings into the Directories that are more suitable for your business. You get your message in front of the people who are more interested in your business. This is a wise use of funds and time.
In addition to performing this valuable service, one company also offers to submit your information to all the Social Bookmarking sites. You pay for this service, too. Of, course, you can do this yourself, if you are familiar with all the relevant sites on the Net. You will have a learning curve. Each site is different and you’ll have to figure out how to use each one, but it can be done without wanting to take a sledge hammer to your computer or giving up too soon.
We’re all for the easy way to do things!
The company that we suggest that you use to perform these two important services is called Social Directory Maximizer. They are but one of many who offer this service. Their fees are reasonable and they will do the job that is necessary to drive Traffic to your websites. They submit to 1270 Social Bookmarking sites and 1185 Directory Listings in their system at the present time.
The cost for Directory Listings is 14 cents per manual Listing and the cost for the Bookmarking sites is 19 cents per submission. You have to decide if this is worth your time to pay for this service to be done for you. You can start with just a small order for $5 and continue to use the submission services on a regular basis. If you decide to do this yourself, the the secret that I am giving you today is that you can find a List of the Directories on a Link at the bottom of this website.
