Stop Selling: Earn Money by giving away FREE stuff with Roger Dagenais at Pure Leverage Las Vegas

Stop Selling: Earn Money by giving away FREE stuff with Roger Dagenais at Pure Leverage Las Vegas

So I am going back over my old notes from the original Pure Leverage live event from the fall of 2012.  The latest live event is happening in San Antonio, TX as I write this, though I was unable to attend due to coaching lacrosse (as I have two games this week and my 13th anniversary!)

I had the chance to listen to Roger Dagenais speak about the idea of giving stuff away in order to build a client basis.  By giving away huge value up front, even before asking for a single thing in return, you are going to be winning the trust of many new people who will want to work with you.

You can hear Roger Dagenais share his whole series of tips inside the member area along with others who presented such as Russell Brunson, Daegan Smith, Marshall Sylver, Joel Therien, Mark Call, Jackie Ulmer and many more as the recordings are all available in the member area at GVO and Pure Leverage: Just look for the tab on the left side like the one in the image below:

Some of the key points Roger Dagenais made reference relationship building and seeking out what other MLM, or multi level marketing people are using to build their businesses in other niches.

Too often you see people using the same auto generated or standard websites that get blended in with the masses of other members and all the websites look the same.

Many of these same people looking to start a home business are also going about it wrong and not collecting leads correctly to develop a relationship and continue to provide high quality support and suggested tools to.  If they do not have a good lead generation website on their hands, they are often wasting their time and efforts as they might get traffic to their site, but do not collect the leads for future follow up.

The Pure Leverage suite of tools provides that easily with lead capture pages or blog that you can format to your liking as well as the ability to grow a list of up to 10,000 subscribers for a low cost of $25 a month.  With the additional tools like the webinar platform software included for 100 seats, video email, video hosting, live weekly training and more, the $25 is a no brainer when it comes to not only affordability, but being able to reach every marketer out there (whether they are just getting started or have been online for many years).

Pure Leverage works for any and all markets and niches.  It really does not matter what you are trying to promote as having a landing page and ability to capture contact information is one of the most important aspects to business growth.  When you can share your expertise with local businesses to how this works by giving them your knowledge it can grow from just starting with a free website set up where they pay for the hosting and tools, to you providing other services as well in the future.

Reciprocity sets in when one business starts seeing growth, they are likely to share this with others businesses in their area. You give and you get!

Just think about the types of businesses you can go out and help with the right tools to grow their business…in return, it helps out your business as well.

I am in the talks with both a wine store and a bottle return center just to give you an idea of how you can get out in the local market place to share the tools that Pure Leverage can provide.

Don’t you think it is time for you to take action on Pure Leverage as well?

Just go here now to get started for a buck!

Perfection Creates Procrastination

Pure Leverage CEO Joel Therien said it best himself at the beginning of the Pure Leverage Freedom Live event in Las Vegas: “Perfection Creates Procrastination”

Joel Therien thinks that Perfection Creates Procrastination

Joel Therien thinks that Perfection Creates Procrastination

We need to realize that we are all imperfect human beings and that if we strive to be perfect, especially in the process of building our businesses, we will never make any progress at all.

I have always lived on the mantra picked up by Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins, in TARL, or Take Action Revise Later and this has helped me win prizes such as ipads from Omar Martin, strategy sessions from Daegan Smith and even a trip to Kenya with Russell Brunson.

Yeah, all because I took action while others did not for some reason or another.

The thing you have to need to understand though it that I might have screwed up along the way and possibly had a do a video a few times if it was a live take…heck just the other day I was revamping my lead capture video for a book I published with my mastermind group and did the first video at least 31 times before I was able to feel comfortable with how it came out.

I am sure there are still errors in it, but I am going to get it out there and can improve it later on.

This might put me out of my comfort zone, but nowhere near a panic zone as I am in the learning zone in the process, figuring out what works and sounds good, as well as what doesn’t and sounds bad.

You need to forget about being perfect and forget about being comfortable all the time.  Even the well known marketers make mistakes (which are often many thousands of dollars more than the mistakes we make so keep it in perspective!)

Be confident and take action and it will keep getting easier and you will get more comfortable in the process, which will then allow you to try even more things to continue to grow your business.

If you keep trying to be perfect though and deleting all of your videos and posts until you think they look divine, you will never see the growth that others may view had you put up everything!

So go ahead and take action now, make your 1st or 101st video and load it up to Youtube and your blog and share the heck out of it and let people know what you are made of!

The Power of Association with Pure Leverage Live Events

This past weekend I had the pleasure to make my way to the First Pure Leverage live event, “Freedom Live 2013”

Pure Leverage Freedom Live 2013

I just attended the 2013 Pure Leverage Freedom Live

This event was the first of its kind by the GVO family of tools who started Pure Leverage marketing tool suite back in March 2013 with tools like autoresponders, video email, webinar conference room, video hosting, authority blog and much more.

This company has close to 80,000 clients and I was honored to be just one of the roughly 330 people in attendance for their first live event.  Talk about an intimate setting where I was able to bump elbow with some of the top marketers in the world and pick their brains a little….

This was just a portion of the reason why I was happy to be able to go.  As Mark Call stressed, it really is about “The power of association” with Pure Leverage live events.  This is where the relationships and associations are truly grown in to amazing partnerships and more importantly, friendships.

Even though Pure Leverage has provided some of the best marketing tools you need to run an online business, it really is “not always the tools and services as much as it is about the relationships and associations you belong to”, says Mark Call.  He also stressed in our opening ceremony how it is not always about the profit, but what you can do with it.

It is all about making a difference.  The success will follow when you make a difference.

He has always stressed the idea about being one mind-shift away from success and greatness in what you set out to achieve and he brought another gem into today’s session in that when you change your associations, you change your life.

If you are ready to make changes in your life and want to get yourself branded, you need the right tools, like Pure Leverage has to offer.

Pure Leverage marketing tools suite honest review

Pure Leverage marketing tools suite honest review

When I first heard that Joel Therien, the CEO of GVO was building another marketing platform I was intrigued to find out more.


Pure Leverage Marketing Tools Suite

Pure Leverage Marketing Tools Suite

I had already been a member of GVO for almost four years with their titanium account which included unlimited hosting, video hosting, a small webinar conference platform, subscriber base through autoresponder (up to 20,000 members), live training, templates, opt in forms, competition witness and much more for about $45 USD a month, which I was happy to pay for considering the alternative and having to pay multiple companies instead of just one.


There was also a recruiting platform or partner program where I could earn 50% commission on the first month of anyone who used the services through my link as well as a recurring 5% on all following months, or potentially (50% shared through 10 levels of a downline where each level got 5%).  The 50% on month one was great, but the 5% on the back end was almost nothing and many people felt that there was too much to access and they did not need such a large package.


They next came out with the Host Then Profits Platform which had a micro view of the Titanium account and only cost about $10 a month and included hosting for 4 sites, autoresponder to 500 subscribers, video hosting for a limited amount, small conference room and live trainings, but again the commisisons were the same at 50% of the front end and 5% up ten levels (50% total assuming you had those levels, otherwise GVO would get the lions share, which they also shared with leaders each month as bonuses)


More people came aboard GVO as it was now reachable, but still had a somewhat weak recurring income stream.


That has all changed with the inception of Pure Leverage.  The basic platform is $25 a month and includes Autoresponder for up to 10,000 subscribers, video email (to allow your clients to get to know you on a more personal level even faster), live webinar conference room for up to 100 attendees, live training and an authority blog and more.   This is midline between the original GVO Titanium as well as Host Then Profits, but also includes the main features of their sister platforms at GVO Conference and Meet Cheap, which are both webinar platforms ranging from $10-$100 a month or more depending on seating capacity.

The main upsell to Pure Leverage is a $97/month mastery training course featuring weekly live webinars and trainings, plus access to all the recordings, a mastermind forum and PLR products to use with Royalty free images as well as sound clips to add into your business plans.  Other commissionable products are in the pipeline.


The commission structure in the Pure Leverage platform is a million times better and benefits those who take action and upgrade to the top level and also requires that people own the products as well.  In month one, you get a 100% commission, not a 50% like in the original GVO plans.  On the recurring months as long as a downline member stays active, you will gain a 50% commission AND a 50% matching check to anyone in your dowline that has commissions as well.

In order to take action on these, you need to own the products AND have a monthly reseller license which is about $20 a month or $200 for the year (buy 10 months and get 2 free!) otherwise any commissions you might bring in will automatically pass up to your upline and you will lose that commission FOREVER…even if you upgrade later on, you will not see those commissions from that specific downline member ever.  If you later upgrade, any new members you bring in will qualify you to receive commissions on their monthly fees however.


The incentive is there to become a reseller and Pure Leverage VIP member


Some example of how this commission flow could be like this assuming you have both products ($25 platform and $97 upgraded VIP status with $20 reseller license for a total around $142 a month) is as follows:


Example 1) Let’s say you have 10 downline members who each have the basic membership.  On month one you would earn about $250 in commissions and then $125 each consecutive month (or more if any upgraded)


Example 2) Lets say one of those members above recruited well and also brought in 10 paying members.  You would not earn any of their commissions on month one, but in month two and beyond is where it really become great and your income potential has the ability to grow exponentially.  In month two, not only would you be getting the $125 we mentioned above from your own direct line, you would also be getting an additional 50% of their $125, or about $63 as a matching check bonus…If all 10 members has a similar case, you would end up with $630 dollars in matching check bonuses.


Example 3) Some people will not upgrade to the reseller license, or will not upgrade to the VIP membership and will just use the services, but if they have people brought in under them in their downline, their commissions for these products will pass up to you, or the next person in line who does have the upgraded account.  Lets say that from our downline level one member above who brought in 10 people that one of them became a VIP, the $97 month one commission would pass them and go to you, with a $49 residual coming on the following months as long as they stayed a member.


In my first two weeks I saw a commissions tally of almost $300, which assuming these members stay in and complete the month and have the payment processed, totally covers my orginal fees of the $25 basic platform, $97 VIP and $20 Reseller license ($142 total) and puts me in the Black or a net positive…This same group in future months would result in about about half of that of course, or around $150 which still covers my original fees and has me breaking even, which really is the main idea in the beginning.  If you can break even in your advertising and marketing, you really have started to win the game.


When you continue to market and bring more people into the platform, this is where the fun begins and the potential income develops, though it is all dependent upon work ethic.  I have built this with a very small subscriber base up to this point as well as solo ad purchases targeted to the home business opportunity marketplace.


Pros and Cons of Pure Leverage:  GVO and Joel Therien have done a wonderful job bringing in both current members into the new platform as well as providing valuable recruiting tools so that in the first 10 days alone, over 20,000 members registered and almost ¾ of a million dollars in commissions was been logged.  With this comes some pros and cons



1)      The products inside the platform are integral to a marketer and are continually being upgraded based on customer recommendation and suggestions

2)      The price is reachable by all levels or marketers, new or veterans

3)      The compensation package is awesome

4)      The support from Joel and the Pure Leverage community is top notch



1)      Not everything was up and ready to use upon launch.  They made some upgrades and complete templates as request come in

2)      Currently the sales video focuses only on the opportunity and tools, but not on the idea of passing this platform on to local businesses, stores etc, to use as their own individual lead generation and subscriber base platform.  Most likely they will not want to promote the downline capabilities, but want to be able to use the email services and webinar platforms.

3)      As thousands of members are joining each month, the online and technical support system, including the live chat support had times where it was logged down, though this should be somewhat expected and people need to have some patience on this end.

4)      While many can afford the basic $25 membership each month, the $97 might be out of reach for many which can cause them to lose valuable commissions down the road


Coming Soon:

1)      The authority blog will be launched soon within the platform and will allow you to be able to write a blog post a couple times a week to build your status online and also provide all of the content necessary to promote the Pure Leverage Platform itself.

2)      The email autoresponder may continue to be modified to compare to services like Aweber and iContact with features like sending to re-opens and more.

3)      More weekly training, tips, strategies and more

4)      Lead generation advertising co-ops, where instead of investing a lot of money to get one ad, you can spend a fraction of that to develop some traffic to your site, which could develop into some leads.  When your business grows, you can scale up from here and start buying the full ads yourself and send the clicks mainly to your affiliate link instead of being shared in a rotator with others who have gone in on the co-op in the first place.

5)      Contest and bonuses for those who continue to grow and bring in new clients.


Overall I hope you feel I have provided you with an honest review of Pure Leverage Marketing Platform and it is my highest recommendation that you give Pure Leverage and Joel Therien a try.  I would love to have you on my team and help you grow


FREE Advertising to your Affiliate Link when you join my team:  Yes, I will share the love with you and promote your link…it is a win-win-win situation.

You win because you get some leads and potential direct referral from my traffic and can earn 100% commissions.

I win because after month one I will start to get a 50% residual match and keep you wanting to stay with Pure Leverage

They win: Your customers win because they get some killer products to use in their business and promote to others as well.

Like I said, it is a win-win-win situation.


Just go over and check out the Pure Leverage video here to find out more and see what else is in store.

The Praying Mantis of Marketing

As I was pumping gas on our way back home from vacation the other day, my daughter asked my wife as they were heading into the restroom “what’s that?”

My wife replied…”some type of moth”

She must not have been paying attention to the real thing in the view which I caught when I was done pumping.

A nice praying mantis….

If you know anything about these predators, not only are they fierce hunters, but also are ready to kill their mates when they are done doing the deed (I hope you can read between the lines there)

In other words, they are all nice and get what they want in order to grow their population, but once they know they have what they want, they go in for the kill and destroy the absolute item that helped them be able to spread in the first place.

Imagine if you did that in business?

Got someone to help you grow your business, then you just destroyed them, so you could never get any assistance again for the rest of your life.

That would not only be the death of them, but of you as well.

You always need to be finding other people who are smarter and better prepared than you so that you can continue to grow and build your brand or your business.

There is no destruction here, only growth.

I continue my education every day to always help you out and help me learn more as well (which I love to share and give you ideas about as well)

Recently (if you have been on my email list for a while now) you know I had been highly promoting the Elite Marketing Pro membership from the boys at Magnetic Sponsoring

I still highly suggest checking that out, which you can here: Elite Marketing Pro

That is not my main focus today though….though feel free to check it out when you have a second.

Anywhere you can get high quality courses/education AND 100% commissions is something to take at least one look at.

The real scope of today is to let you know I am ready to rock the rest of 2013 with you…We are almost 2/3 of the way through the year and I am ready to make the last 1/3 freaking awesome.

For starters, we want to talk about multiple streams.

Unless you are a superstar, you will most likely need to promote a couple different products and have the means to do so in order to get continual commissions…

…but you do not always want the one and done kind.

I am not saying that a nice one time commission is or could be bad…but you want RESIDUALS!

That is where the 20 Minute Payday comes in!

We are talking residuals in 3 streams, month after month.

We are talking the training

We are talking the tools

We are talking the traffic!

This is a powerful combination of three main facets of marketing and they are all available inside the 20 Minute Payday.

I have also talked about GVO and Pure Leverage many times as well over the last years and they are just one of the streams inside.

The reason you are reading this email is because of the autoresponder that is included in the Pure Leverage (GVO) system.

If you want to be able to stay in touch with your customers you have to have this in your business.

Head on over now to see the other two streams and hit me up with any questions you might have!

If you are already in the Pure Leverage, that is cool as you can still benefit from the 20 Minute payday and its other streams.

If you are already in 20  minute Payday…make sure you are taking action on what you learn from the training videos.

Remember, I am not going to destroy you like the praying mantis…instead I am here to continually help you grow.

Hit me up with any questions you might have about it! here is that link again:
