Is Worldprofit Accredited by the Better Business Bureau?

I recently posted a couple of articles concerning my investigation and review of Worldprofit and Dr. Jeffrey Lant. I received several comments in reply and a few email messages as well. Most of the comments centered on two facts concerning Worldprofit; the first is that the company has been online since 1994 and secondly, that Worldprofit has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau for 10 years. The later point typically has included the phrase “Is Worldprofit really Accredited by the Better Business Bureau.”

I thought it would be helpful to provide a little more detail about Worldprofit’s status with the Better Business Bureau and provide you with a link to the Edmonton BBB so that you can see Worldprofit’s reliability report and the details concerning their rating.

When evaluating Worldprofit or any business opportunity, it is critical that you do not accept reviews at face value and that you seek out documented facts and fewer opinions. I advise this course of action for one simple reason, when it comes to the success of any Internet business the quality of the program as well as the commitment of the buyer (you) are vitally important. There are times when “the business” fails because of the buyer didn’t take appropriate actions, work hard enough, or give the program enough time to produce results. It may have nothing to do with the company.

If you read reviews that focus more on personalities and less on facts, beware… the reviewer likely has an axe to grind. If the review is written by someone who has never actually participated in the business or has not conducted enough research to present a balanced review, beware … the reviewer likely has an axe to grind.

Here are the key portions of the report taken from the Edmonton BBB website. I trust that this information will be helpful in your evaluation of Worldprofit.

Sean Gallagher Interviews Yaro Starak of Blog Mastermind

I first became aware of Yaro Starak a little over two years ago and previously completed his Become a Blogger program which is co-presented with Gideon Shalwick. I have since studied and put into practice many of Yaro’s blogging principles and best practices. I owe much of my blogging success to what I have learned from Yaro and I have to tell you, his story is very inspirational!

I recently became aware of another blogger and video-blogger named Sean Gallagher who publishes the blog “Start Up Freedom,” which is a blog on the business of Internet Marketing. I recommend his site as it has plenty of great video interviews and other actionable content. As I was perusing Sean’s site, I came across this interview with Yaro Starak and it is so good that I wanted to share it with you here.

My Introduction to Turnkey Internet Business Systems

I have just posted a new article at Ezine Articles that share a quick story about how I discovered and have profited from “Turnkey Internet Business Systems” – there are some gems here. In the article, you will discover that my entrance into the home business industry was very typical, my initial results where extraordinary and I quickly ran into the same brick wall that so many people face when just getting started in our profession.

I share how I was introduced to the concepts of funded proposals and marketing funnels and how this changed everything for me. I even provide a “snap-shot” of what these system look like and how they work. I also explain what a “turnkey business system” is and how to leverage them to your advantage.

In summary, I would invite you to take a quick read of my article, it will only take a few minutes to read, but the value if you look carefully may solve one of your biggest challenges to truly break through online. I site two examples of turnkey models that I current utilize in my business, YourNet Biz and Worldprofit are my recommendations, but there are a couple of others worthy of your consideration.

Podcast Episode 105: How to Build Your Subscriber List with Relative Ease

Join me today and I will show you how to build a responsive subscriber list with relative ease. The key is knowing the best tools and even more importantly – how to use them.

List Building Doesn’t Have to be Difficult New and intermediate marketers operate under a false impression that the only way to build a list is to have a visitor opt into a subscriber form on your website or blog. Unfortunately this leads to a lack of action because they get stuck either because they don’t know how to put a web form on their site or they put the form on their site and do nothing more.

The long-term impact on the business of these marketers is a lack of sales. The longer you go without an organized and consistent list building strategy, the more difficult it will be for you to begin making real money online. If you read this blog post carefully and take immediate action, you will be on your way to building a responsive list with relative ease.

My First Appearance on “TE Live” with Jon Olson and Tim Linden

I have developed some really great friendships among my Internet Marketing peers, some I have met in person and an even larger number I have gotten to know through telephone conversations, Skype chats, email exchanges and live streams. All of these relationships have added value to my business and my life and every now and then they produce some pretty cool experiences – just like friendships in the offline world.

Last Wednesday was one such occasion as I had a chance to jump onto “TE Live” hosted by Jon Olson and Tim Linden – the show airs weekdays on UStream TV.

Podcast Episode #104: Quality Matters More Than The Size Of Your List

List building is largely a numbers game but many marketers forget that quality matters when it comes to earning revenue with your list. If you want to monetize your subscriber list you must first provide real value for your members for free and then within your funnel convert those subscribers to buyers.

The basic formula that I teach to achieve our objective is simply offering visitors to your websites and blog sites a high value item free as a reward for opting in, I refer to this as an ethical bribe. Keep in mind that this is a reflection on your brand and for your future customers it is their first sample of the quality and value you provide. As a result you want to give away some of your BEST information. If you give your new subscribers cheap or low value products and information, they have no reason to pay for what they will perceive to be more of the same. When you provide high value information as a free gift and continue to provide quality content through your auto-responder messages, you begin to build trust by establishing your expertise and you create a desire in your subscriber to obtain more of your content and a willingness to pay for the value they receive.
