Whatever your stage of life, start now to become a successful super affiliate! Why The Internet/Web has become a cesspool of discourteous behaviour. Polluted with spam and insulting hype. Unrealistic “get-rich-quick” schemes and MLM. Constant requests for donations and bombardment with ads. This initiative is a departure from the dastardly. Using old-school principles and ethical techniques to spread the word. Smarter ways to generate revenue. NO SPAM ~ NO HYPE ~ NO MLM ~ NO DONATIONS ~ NO ADVERTISING How Using a revenue sharing business model, this initiative offers anyone the opportunity to earn extra income, while at the same time helping various causes. By spreading the word, we create Unity, foster Community, motivate Affiliates to generate residual Revenue and promote Events. The technical core is a single-tier affiliate program. This is NOT multi-level marketing. There is zero cost to be an affiliate and no charge for training. Affiliates do not earn anything from the referrals of another affiliate. Recurring commissions are only paid to the first referring affiliate when new members subscribe. Nothing to sell, no products to stock nor buy. Everything is given to affiliates on a technical plate. Uniquely coded links and QR codes to share far and wide. Using social media networks to give the website/cause more exposure. Your statistics for click traffic, referrals and commissions are tracked in real time. Easy to follow tutorials are provided and every effort made to help you succeed. It’s a part-time job or full business in a digital box. Philosophy Carving an alternative path through the online jungle, this initiative does not intend to disrupt, but rather show the way for discerning people. With a preference to avoid the disrespectful, anonymous idiots, we offer an online experience that is ethical, professional and courteous. NO SPAM and/or Unsolicited Commercial Email. The majority of email is unnecessary and/or junk. It’s difficult to get important correspondence. Regardless, it’s still an essential medium. We only send out email if and when absolutely needed. NO hype and/or annoying pressure sales tactics. It’s annoying to be taken for fools, with exaggerated claims and fake testimonials. Adding insult to injury with purchase deadlines and click-baiting. We simply give the facts and let users decide. NO MLM (Multi-Level-Marketing) and/or pyramids. Get-rich-quick schemes abound on the Internet, preying on the gullible and greedy. Network marketing is not to be confused with affiliate marketing. There are no sponsors nor pyramids. NO donations and/or charitable tax write-offs. We believe that charity starts at the cash register. Fundraising on the Internet is murky at best. We want no part of it. The resources offered here are (really) free, with optional memberships NO advertisements and/or irritating pop-up offers. Probably the biggest cause of pollution on the Internet is advertising. It’s everywhere, intrusive and annoying. Like getting slapped while trying to read a book. We don’t do any adverts. Period.
