Help Others Expecting Nothing In Return – SplashPlan.com Lesson

help others - splashplan.comI thought it was about time to write a little about SplashPlan.com, which is our system to help network marketers.  How does it help?  Well, it is free to sign up.  You get free leads by promoting your SplashPlan.com site.  You get free training.  And you can earn a little affiliate money while you are building your network marketing business.  In this lesson I will explain why it is so important to help others and expect nothing in return.

People That Join Belong To Other Network Marketing Companies

When you sign up and start promoting your SplashPlan.com link, something like SplashPlan.com/yoursite, you will get leads that are people that belong to other network marketing companies.  Your job is not to recruit them to your program, your job is to help them be as successful as possible with their program on SplashPlan.com.  While this may seem counter productive, you want to be seen by others as being helpful and unselfish, so you help others without expecting anything in return.

Google reCaptcha Saves My Butt

Before I get going, please make sure to see the links at the end of this post.  I could include them within the body here but I am going to be lazy.

I spent the last two weeks fighting with the bots to try to get a good indication of how well we are doing on the splashplan.com site.  I thought up a number of possible solutions to the problem but ultimately the bots were smarter than me.  Nothing I came up with eliminated fake sign ups; and anything that would cure the problem would get in the way of the user experience.

I was very concerned about using captcha to solve the problem because it added one more silly field that the user would have to fill out to sign up.  Adding more steps or more fields meant losing good sign ups, and I only wanted to lose the bad ones.

Enter Google’s reCAPTCHA.  It basically has the visitor check a box if they are not a robot.  Simple.  Effective. Doesn’t get in the way too much.  Ok, give it a shot.  But it will be difficult to install right?  Wrong!  Using an article I found, it was simple and straight forward and I did not have to install a code library on my web site.

It really was very easy and solved the problem.  Now I am back to having a hard time getting sign ups.  At least the ones that do sign up will be real people who will get good use out of the site.
