Default Making money online, not always a scam

Hi guys,

I'm not here to advertise a money scamming scheme. I have been doing designs for about 4 years now and making good money at it. I put some of it aside to try out different online methods of making money.

Searched, experimented, and kept trying. Could NOT find anything. I kept getting tons of spam and was getting sick of it.

One day I ran across this guy and he started talking to me about GDI Affiliate marketing programs. I got the lowdown on how it works and gave it a try.

I was shocked when I saw that it was the real deal. It just seems so easy. Basically all you do, is get people to sign up for this affiliate marketing company. You get paid for each person you get to sign up.

every 5 people is $100, Then when they start, the more people that THEY get to sign up the more YOU get paid. So it's basically...If your good at advertising you can make good money with it. I'm doing very well for only being in it for 2 weeks.

See, its not one of them things that you have to spam people to get them to join. Everyone wants to make money online so they give it a try. And it's not something thats hard at all!

You get what is called an "upline" and a "downline" The upline is the group that go you to sign up. The downline is all the people that have singned up under you.

Kind of sounds confusing at first but here is an example.

Someone signs up under you, they get their dad to sign up under them, Their dad has a guy from work sign up under him, The guy at work has his wife sign up under him. You get paid for every single one of them people that sign up!

So the broader base of customers you have, the easier it is for you.


SO, IS THERE A CATCH?

Nope, but all you need is $10 to try it out and prove me wrong. Heres what your $10 is for.

For $10 you purchase a domain name and a hosting service. By default the company sets up a standard page were your customers can sign themselves up under you. Then all you do is advertise and direct them to your page so they can sign up.

YOU GET A 7 DAY FREE TRIAL! I do this so that you can see what its all about for a week before you have to pay. If you don't like it simply cancel! Just give it a try...$10 is all it is... It's easy to save, just go without 2 packs of cigarettes, or that Burger King lunch that you don't really need, and there it is. I can find $10 in change around my house. No reason why you should NOT try it!

And don't get the idea that it's a waste, because even if you don't like it for some reason you just got a website that enables you to show your services, company or whatever you want your website to be about on the web.

They provide awesome flash templates so you can design your page.

I know it sounds like a lot to handle but just go to this url:

Enter your name & E-mail
And watch the video on how it all works.

I promise you I don't spam, I hate spammers and wish they were taken off the internet. All I use the E-mail for is questions you may have and just to see how many people are coming to my page.

Just try it once, watch the video and FEEL FREE to contact me @: for ANY Questions you have. I'll respond as fast as my fingers will click and type.

Thanks,

Mitch

Based on what you have written, this is a typical Pyramid set up, illegal here in Canada, might want to check it out where you are also.

Hmm, don't see why it would be illegal. Theres over 250k members here on this. It's not illegal here.

I agree with this statement. If you are good at advertising you can make almost any business work.

Ditto. Just remember, the money has to come from somewhere. I choose to invest where I know there is a true market. In the lawn care or small engine repair market there will always be customers. With the right amount of marketing they will work just fine and someone is getting a true service from it. With pyramid systems the money must be coming from somewhere. If it does not come from me then it comes from there person below me or the person below them........

I have recieved 2 checks. one for $92 and my latest one was $220. They have customer service hotlines and forums. I looked their history up yesterday and they have been around for 10 years now. E-bay, google, yahoo and a few other big name Co's are with them. If it was illegal I'm pretty sure the government would have caught them 10 years ago and the big name Co's would have not even contacted them for advertising purposes.

I got no beefs with you Mitch...but putting an affiliate link in your post for all of us go to and try and sign up to pad your wallet...well, to me ain't cool, in fact its dirty pool.

If something sounds too good to be true..it is. You can make some money using the internet with affiliates but it takes your life away to try. It is not easy money like they "Market" it to be.

I'm not trying to "pad my wallet" by any means. If I was trying to do that I would not have turned down 3 full website design and maintenance customers to take the time to set this up. thats over a grand. This has not even made 1/4 of that.

I was just sharing it. If people don't want to sign up. its fine by me.

Pyramid. Illegal here. If there is no product or goods, and its a trickle down effect of money, its a pyramid.
