In life you often want to have control over how things work out. Sometimes you want others to lead you along the way and tell you how things are going to be and you go with the flow. Being a follower, rather than a leader in the case of online marketing can sometimes work for you, while other times it can destroy your chances of success.
If you are just starting out, listening to a marketing “guru” can help you make some crucial decisions on what steps to take in order to get going. One of the most recurring themes that come out is the basics that you must start with in order to progress. This basic, is in reference to web hosting. The other main component that goes hand in hand with this is having your own domain as well. You can pick these up rather inexpensively from many places on the web.
When you get a domain, you are often offered a small hosting package, though this usually comes with limited capabilities as well. You lose a sense of control here and are not able to take the complete lead over what could possibly be available for your website compared to having your own host where you could incorporate more code (HTML etc.) that would allow you to have a higher functioning site.
The major thing you want to look for is what is known as the cPanel. This is short for control panel and is what allows you to manipulate you site to meet your needs. Adding code, blogs, forums, shopping carts and having access to easily load up files, pictures, audio and more are just some of the key features included in a cPanel that give you a tremendous advantage when designing your layout.
If you want to just go with the blog format, having the fantastico software will make you life easier in quickly being able to install your blog in a matter of minutes. Now, do not get me wrong, the blog itself will take quite a while in making it appear how you like it (which is a story for another article). This includes things like widgets, advertising/AdSense, banners, opt-in forms and much more. As the search engines are more friendly towards blogs as they are updated more, you have a better chance of receiving generic traffic than if you would if you went with a static website that never changed.
With the changes in technology occurring, it is not enough to just have a Facebook page or a twitter account, having a running website that people can view is important and again, stressing your ability to control it is the most important thing. There is no time like the present to start your own website. Everyone has the capabilities to have a great product in their mind, or even to promote a great product for someone else. The best way to become successful is to solve peoples problems and I am sure you have it in you one way or another to help solve something.
Now you just need to go out and start solving it while controlling it yourself!
David Gardner hosts over 50 websites on his own. He controls them by putting whatever he wants on his sites and mostly with knowledge he picked up by learning it himself. He thinks you can learn it easily as well. If you want to find out more about getting your own hosting so you can control things how you want them to and get some tips from him, go to http://MyGVOTrial.com and take control of your business, or your pleasure.
A short warning in that they do go almost 2 hours, but this will be worth your time for sure to smooth away any questions and concern you might have about GVO Host Then Profit.
GVO Offers web hosting and online marketing solutions which include but are not limited to the following:
Web hosting, video production/hosting, autoresonder, opt in forms, page templates, recruiting templates, banners, downtime witness, online conference software and more all with 24 hour live support and a ton of weekly live trainings as well as recorded videos.
The main focus here is the idea that you will be saving money. There is no guarantee you will make money with GVO, but it is highly likely you might! If you were to pay for all the featured software independently of GVO, you would be running a monthly bill of at least $100-500, while GVO Host Then Profit, is a measley $9.97/month.
What you get for this is a limited version of their titanium package with hosting up to 4 domains, a 500 subscriber list (these can be upgraded as your business grows as well) blogger builder, conference room and more.
After watching and listening to how some of the top affiliates were making out, like Brian Bear, coming out of his truck for the most part and pulling over 300 new members was enlightening.
The key idea is sticking with the basics. If you do a video of the basics and get others to know like and trust your message, they are more apt to believe in what you are talking about and willing to see the information you are presenting to them as being beneficial. When we are trying to help you save money in your business, this is the icing on the cake.
I have personally been using GVO for over 2 years and swear by them. Their support and freindliness goes beyond what you would ever expect. When you can communicate with the ones who run the show, you know it is a company you want to work with.
Though you might need to re-arrange your schedule some to watch the video, you will get the idea that this is what you need to do for your business today. Whether you have a developed site and need to cut back somewhere, this will help, or if you are new and starting out as well, this will get you going in a cost effective manner as well.

With marketing you need to be online in one way or another. I realize the importance of face to face contact and direct sales (mailings, cold call visits, teleconferencing etc.) but if you are not online, you are behind many eight balls.
With the changes that have taken place with technology in the last few years, from smart phones to ipads, the internet is becoming accessible to the far reaches of the globe. There is not much left to be considered private of course so the first note is to make sure you proceed with caution in all ventures, especially online. With that out of the way, the tools you use online can either make or break you (and your bank account!).
Currently GVO Hosting is offering a 30 day free trial that will only cost you only your email address. Now this in itself is something to consider as normally trials that claim to be free, never really are. When you get to a site, you often have to enter your credit card anyways, which kind of defeats the purpose and then they will charge you the second your trial runs out unless you cancel within the alloted time while standing upside down, changing a monkeys diaper…seriously though, sometimes many companies screw you with their “free” trial. With GVO Hosting all you will need is your email address in this killer ethical bribe.
Joel Therien, the founder of GVO is attempting to show you that his company is one that you can “know, like and trust”. With the 24 hour live support (I give them many thumbs up for this as they have helped many times over during the 20 plus months I have been a member), weekly trainings, features and benefits of the service, they are definitely people to like and trust…you just need to get to know them of course, if you have never checked them out before.
As I started to say above, you have to have an online presence to be seen these days as the yellow books and newspaper advertising are seeing drops in rates, while facebook ads is taking over google adwords. Surprisingly almost 50 percent of businesses out there today DO NOT HAVE A WEBSITE! This just amazes me to no end. For all of us marketers here in the Better Networker community, this is an open opportunity to help out and be a local marketing guru! Most of these people do not know how to do the work, or plainly enough, do not have the time to do, nor the desire to spend the time to learn all the ins and outs!
Having a complete system where you can be that local guru is critical. You have learned over and over about being able to get a list and this still applies here. The “eResponder pro” autoresponder system you get with GVO Hosting, allows you to set up as many campaigns as you want (depending on the package you go with after the trial). The opt in forms and templates they offer make it quick and easy to enter the html code into your website as well. As a safety precaution, they like to stick with the double opt-in procedure which reduces spam on both ends, but can be clicked off to go with the single opt-in. Now comparitively, you could be spending a bundle on these services throuh places like aweber and icontact, so keep that in mind as this is included in the price. The deliverability I have found to be very good and like all systems these days, email can get blocked. I have experienced an issue with TWCNY email addresses getting blocked, but received quick help from the support team on this effort.
As you set up your opt-in form, you of course need somewhere to host it. The WHM, or web host manager, allows you to basically host an unlimited number of domains with your account (again, it will depend on a package you choose after your trial). The set up here is easy as well and provides crucial tools such as cPanel with fantastico (so you can set up forums, wordpress blogs, customer support and more) which allow you to have complete control over your site. Compare this to something like the free hosting available with your GoDaddy domain purchase and you might be limited in functionality of your site. As a titanium subscriber, you may even resell your domain space. This can be a great service if you are working with local companies as you can host their sites as you help them build it up as well.
Another key benefit I have found is the easy Video producer and their provided web hosting. You can quickly make a video with your computers webcam or you can upload your own videos into this from your computer. Depending on your account, the file size can be limited to 100mb or so, which may be an issue with some videos, but there are other services that can compress them if needed. The video service allows you to embed your videos as well as set them up to autoplay, or let user control the playing, which can be crucial in your sales videos. I have even used them to host items for sale on Craigslist and ebay that will either be linked to or autoplayed, respectively. Comparing this to services like AS3, you might be able to have a larger file, but the cost are variable with AS3 and will never change with GVO Hosting as it is part of the package.
If you are a quick learner you can easily go through the training videos on your own, like I have done for the most part, or you can take part in the almost daily GVO Academy, which are live and recorded training sessions that help you build your sites and your business. Everything is discussed from blog building to list building. You can go around to forums all over and spend hours waiting for a reply, or you can spend thousands of dollars to take a course training you how to do this, or you can get it included in your account!
In terms of blog building, one of the newest services being offered with the GVO Hosting account is “blogger builder”! This allows you to easily set up your wordpress blog from within the GVO dashboard without having to go through cpanel and fantastico. You can also do quick submits or article posts from here as well instead of having to log into your wp-admin dashboard. Html is available here, but it can be somewhat limited in that there is no option to list tags and improve SEO etc., and you will need to actually log into the wp-admin for this, which is not really a difficult step in itself.
Another major feature of GVO Hosting is GVO Conference. As the price of gas continues to escalate (up to $3.79 in Central NY as of 3/24/2011) the idea of travelling for business becomes more miserable. Being able to get in front of a partner or prospect quickly with the ease of a computer is sounding better every day. GVO Conferece allows for webinars, audio, video and text chatting, whiteboard display, desktop sharing, conference recording and more. You get a 3 seat room with the platinum package or a 10 seat room with the titanium package where you can do anything from commicate with your friends and family to showing someone your business opportunity to hosting a training session for your team or clients. GVO Conference also exists as a stand alone product with 50 seat rooms for just under $9 a month, which is a story for another review of course! Compare these services to GotoMeeting and Go2webinar etc., and the cost analysis speaks for itself for the newbie marketer and those with limited budgets and smaller lists.
The next killer feature with GVO Hosting is the Competition witness, formerly known as downtime witness. This software basically allows you to spy on your competitors websites as well as keep an eye on your own. By entering their site address, you will be notified anytime their sites get updated as well as when they are down (which is crucial for your own sites of course). Not enough could be said about this in an effort to keep an edge on your competitors or to be able to see what people are doing that is making waves over the internet. Like the other features mentioned, there are other spy softwares you can use with monthly fees, but again, why pay a bunch of different bills at a higher overall cost, when it is all right here for you in this package.
Finally, as many if not all of us are interested in MLM and network marketing in one way or another, you can earn commissions with your subscription. GVO Hosting provides templates for recruiting as well as the ability to contact your downline right from the back office. GVO and Joel Therien help once you recruit with their own autoresponder series and education. They also provide Banner ads and html codes that will easily allow you to make quick additions to your blogs and websites. Quickly point someone to twitter or facebook to a link and it will take them to a capture page linked to your account (that you do not even need to set up as they will host it themselves!). You could do the alternate and pay someone to develop a quality capture page and set up your own autoresponder series to get them in….but that brings you back to the beginning of the review!
As you can see, there are some great features and benefits that are extremely competitive with individual companies that offer similar products. As technology improves to make your life easier, I highly recommend you check out GVO Hosting so they can help streamline you business as it grows.
Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question about the service. When you decide to streamline your business through one of the links above, I will be your coach as well as the wonderful trainers already inside the service and as any good marketer, will send you some nice little bonuses just for checking it out for 30 days!

Web Audio Plus is an audio creating software package that lets you add audio to your websites or blogs like I show in my example below. Click the play button to hear a quick 15 second clip.
This software can do amazing things for your business and websites. Whereas someone might not be apt to read a whole page of content, they might easily be able to sit and listen to audio while they are multi-tasking, which is the way of life in the online marketing business too often. Web Audio Plus allows for easy recording and uploading of your file (Yes, you do need your own website to do this and you can start here at HostGator) into your blog, website or other location where HTML can be pasted. HTML! Do not let those 4 letters scare you. Web Audio Plus does the hard work for you and lets you choose what you want your audio button to look like as you can change the shape color and background and then it creates the HTML for you. There is a small bit of modifying you need to do as it originally may save it to your desktop, which will not allow others to access it, but instead needs to be uploaded into your cPanel “uploads” folder, or at least this is how I made it work in this WordPress Blog.
Most Web Audio tools might require you to pay monthly fees to host your Audio, but with Web Audio Plus, you will never pay a monthly fee, after a small initial fee for the software rights. There are very similar versions out there selling from $27-67 currently on Clickbank. This is crucial because if you ever wanted to modify your audio, you might need to pay extra fees or if you decided you had an extra site that you wanted to throw some, or even the same, audio into, you might have to pay extra with other audio programs and who really wants to do that, instead of set it and forget it! There are many hosting packages out there and I suggest those with cPanel capabilities so you can upload your own materials and have complete control over everything.
I have been following Michael Rasmussen for some time and he has given me Master Resale rights to this product and therefore I am going to offer it to you for an even better price on my blog only. My sales page will be going up soon and will have a similar pricepoint of $37 for this software. When you buy from this blog post, I am going to give you the phenomenol rate of only $17
You will be glad you started adding audio to your sites and blogs, your customers and fans will be satisfied as well!
