I was recently contacted by Sandi Hunter, the President of Worldprofit, and asked if I would mind answering a few questions to be a Spotlight Featured Member. Of course I was honored so, here are the results...
Spotlight: Worldprofit Platinum VIP Member, Business Owner, Bill Darton
Worldprofit's Silver and Platinum VIP Members are business owners who hail from all over the world, from all walks of life. They each share something very important, character qualities found in every successful person - the willingness to learn, the desire to achieve a goal, and the focus and determination to make it happen.
Here in we feature our Member Spotlight, Bill Darton
Bill, can you share a little information with us about you?
I am Bill Darton, family man, from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. My wife and I got married way back in 1984. We had two children, each of which has recently given us a grandchild. Throughout our married life I was the primary income earner or the sole income earner.
When I was younger and full of energy it didn't seem so bad being a workaholic. As the years went by, I came to the realization that there had to be a better way to make a living. Eventually the Internet Marketing Industry found me. Like so many others, the idea of making money online was just too irresistible to ignore.
Also like so many others, it was a struggle to make it work in a meaningful way. In reality it was just an expensive hobby not unlike any other hobby that anyone might pursue. But this wasn't supposed to be a hobby. It was supposed to add to my lifestyle not take away from it.
It eventually became apparent that I needed to step back and take a serious look at what I was doing and figure out how to turn this ship around. After taking a deeper look at what others were doing, the "secret" began to reveal itself to me. And that secret was not the traffic, not the tools, not the products... it was the system.
Bill, what was the reason or reasons for your initial interest in becoming a Member at Worldprofit?
The "System" is the secret!
Haven't we all said on one occasion or another, "If only I knew then what I know now" I decided to let go of everything I was doing already and pretend I was starting over. How would I do it differently, knowing what I know now.
So I set out on a mission; to find an Internet Marketing system that would be full-scale with all the tools, training, products and traffic. At first I didn't even know for certain that such a system even existed. So I investigated many, tried a few and ultimately ended up with Worldprofit.
It was actually my sponsor, Bill Carr, who sent me a link to look at Worldprofit because he was integrating it into his Internet Marketing system (there's that word again!). Just like me, I knew Bill to be very particular about the programs that he supports and promotes. Which was reason enough for me to give Worldprofit an honest assessment. The timing couldn't have been better because I had just bailed out of another system that I had become extremely frustrated with and was looking to investigate another alternative.
Several things about Worldprofit appealed to me right away.
- A. There was a free membership, not a free trial. Worldprofit does not kick you out after a week or a month if you don't upgrade. You can remain a free member for as long as you like.
- B. There is training available - limited for free members but there is also an extensive "Internet Marketing Bootcamp" available to Silver Dealers (upgraded members).
- C. They also had products to sell that were one-off purchases - no need for a subscription - just buy traffic if you want, when you want.
- D. They have a "Live Business Center" - live monitors are available to answer your questions, help you find things and explain the benefits of the Worldprofit systems, tools, traffic and resources. Of course they are also doing this for your referrals which means they are closing sales for you.
Bill, can you share some of the reasons that you continue as a loyal Member of Worldprofit? How long has it been?
That was my introduction to Worldprofit back in late April of 2016. Essentially, the Live Monitor made me an offer I couldn't refuse so I upgraded right away. I was a monthly subscriber for about three months and then realized how much money I would save and switched to the annual Membership. Now I don't have to worry about pesky monthly payments and can just focus on training and marketing.
Continuing and maintaining my Worldprofit Silver Dealership was the proverbial "No Brainer" (actually, I hate that expression but it somehow seems appropriate here) because I started making money pretty quickly. Not big money at first, but enough sales to keep me interested. It actually took me until November that year to make my first Annual Silver Dealer sale. I can assure you, there is nothing more exciting than waking up in the morning, checking your email and seeing a notice for a $200* commission you received while you were sleeping - especially a month before Christmas! Eventually my sponsor contacted me to explain how I was making so many annual sales. Over time I realized that Worldprofit was the first thing I ever promoted that actually provided a consistent income month after month.
(* I received a $200 commission because I was a Platinum Dealer by then)
Aside from the money there is the fact that Worldprofit provides every essential need for building a business online so, why would I ever think about leaving or going somewhere else.
Bill, do you have any words of advice for someone looking for an online business or considering joining Worldprofit?
Anyone who truly desires to build a business online should give Worldprofit your most serious consideration. Even if you are skeptical, you can join as a free member and get a feel for what Worldprofit can do for you. At the very least, be an honest skeptic. What do I mean by that? Take the time to investigate. Don't rely on opinions or personal feelings. Get to know the Live Monitors. They are a tremendous resource. Contact your sponsor. Find out what is working for them. See if they will partner with you or mentor you in some way - your sponsor has a vested interest in your success. Contact Worldprofit's support team. They are extremely resourceful, caring and patient.
Allow yourself to learn and grow. As with anything new you do in life, there is a learning curve. There will be obstacles, mistakes and disappointments along the way. Sometimes you will even have to realize that your initial expectations were not realistic - don't buy into the hype everyone else is selling.
Another important piece of advice is to not allow yourself to get overwhelmed. Worldprofit was designed to give you everything you need to build a business online. Nothing is left out - nothing else is needed. However, that does not mean that you have to get everything set up in a day or two. As a matter of fact, I will tell you right now, you can't do it in a day or two. Trust the process, take it one step at a time. When you look back six months later you will be amazed at how far you've come.
Bill, you are a Monitor who generously volunteers your time to help others in Worldprofit's home business community. Can you offer some reasons why you enjoy being a Monitor?
Doing anything online is always more fun and rewarding when you feel like you are part of a community. Quite often we say I am "in" this program or "in" that company. For me, just being "in" was not enough. I wanted to be "involved" instead. Being a monitor is not required but it is something that really appeals to me because it allows me to assist people through the process. Not only do I enjoy teaching people about the business but I also learn a lot as well. It's truly a Win-Win situation for everyone involved.
Bill, what are some of the tools and resources in your Worldprofit Membership that you find most helpful in growing your own online business?
Some of my favorite tools are; The Link Cloaker - no matter what you promote, you are also promoting your own domain at the same time. The Ad Tracker - lets me know what's working and what's not working so I can always finetune my marketing. The Contact Manager - too much to get into here. Just say Wow! And, the "Associate Signup Sources" link is truly remarkable. So much can be said about all the tools really.
Bill, can you rate on a scale of 1 - 10 then comment on the quality of services, training and support offered at Worldprofit?
A rating of 1 would be Poor, a rating of 10 would be Outstanding.
I think Worldprofit is an outstanding program that works for anyone whether you are a beginner, novice or pro. Personally, I would be tempted to give it a 9.5 out of 10 with my only knocks being nit-picky type stuff like how the site is organized, it could be more modernized in the member's area and some of the products (PLR in particular) could be updated. But, as far as what matters when you are building your business, the rest of it is a 10 out of 10. The Support team is friendly, informative and very patient. The products are effective and reasonably priced. The training is extensive and easy to follow at your own pace.
Bill, anything else you would like to share with others about your experiences with Worldprofit ?
One thing I think is really under-rated is the Certified eBusiness Consultant program. Just like the Live Monitor system, it is unique to Worldprofit. I feel more could be done to promote this side of the business so it is actually a project that I am taking on myself.
In closing I would once again encourage people to take Worldprofit seriously. Not to over-simplify things but, to be successful you need to:
- A. Build Traffic, to....
- B. Generate Leads, which ultimately leads to...
- C. Making Sales!
With everything Worldprofit has to offer and your own personal commitment to success, you really cannot fail.
And finally, thanks to George and Sandi for creating a system that works so well for so many. I look forward to many years of partnering with you and helping as many people as we possibly can.
