Hi Megumiart: I have GDI, and it is my main business, It is a Global business, promoting .WS instead of .Com..you get your own domain for $10 a month.The way you make money is by referring people, you get $1 a month in residual income, meaning you receive this every single month, and you also get bonuses every week if you refer 5 people or more, $100 per 5 people you refer in one week, and there is no limit on how much money you make. If you want more info, I am a mentor in GDI, I am planning on retiring off of it, it is an incredible opportunity, it is not hard, yes you do have to work but, it is not impossible. email me: evelynarvelo07@hotmail.com

Yea, about the bonus thing it's true. But unfortunately, you have to buy at least 10 DVDs to be required in the bonus program. So you might think about it carefully.

Yes, but be careful about what? it is an opportunity, I make money with it and love it ...you buy the DVD's, It is very profitable, you spend in marketing and make it back 4 times or more...

Yea, some people find it very promising and they get a lot of benefit from it. I just reminded megumiart if she wants to be required in bonus program she has to buy at least 10 DVDs. Because I had no idea at all about it and my sponsor didn't even mention about the DVD thing, she just said about $100 = 5 people, that's why I joined. So when I found out that I have to buy that much I quit. Coz I'm still studying now so I can't concentrate in that kind of big business. Wish you the best luck for your GDI business...^^

I have actually tried three times with GDI, and YennLing is right, it's hard to keep your referrals. GDI is actually a hosting/web domain company. You get a week free to check things out, and after that it's $10 per month. As you'll see from YennLing's message, the five people layered above you get $1 each of that $10, and the other $5 goes to GDI to cover costs. It's definitely not a scam... some good recruiters are making thousands with GDI, but I could never do it. My best time was when I had a site funneling people into my GDI downline, but even then, the most I could get was 12, and they did gradually leave when they couldn't get any referrals. I did win a competition for recruiting though, not a lot, but it covered my membership fees for a few months. I gave up when I was no longer "in credit". I found that no matter how much surfing I did on the traffic exchanges, NO ONE would join GDI. However some must, because as I said it does work for a lot of people. The thing with GDI is, it's NOT a forced matrix, so each level of referrals can be as wide as you like. You can have 1,000 people on your front line if you want! (Or more correctly, if you can find that many!) so the potential for good recruiters is huge. However I prefer a forced matrix, which restricts the number of people on each level. In the above example (1,000 people recruited) if no one could have more than 5 people on each level below them, then people would be "forced" down to lower levels, thereby giving spillover to the people above them. That is very encouraging; getting spillover, but in my experience it's rare. Even though I consider myself a pretty lousy recruiter, I've given spillover lots of times but only ever received it once, and then it evaporated when the people concerned gave up and left.

You sound alot like me Kiwibee! I too quit GDI three times and kicking myself in the butt for it. I was in at the beginning and should have stayed with it. I was a newbie and looking for the free ways like many do. I've learned my lesson and now there's a program out there called the Dream team formula. Basically, instead of going 1,000 wide like you said, it forces you and your team into a 5x5 matrix throughout your downline. All I want to do is reach the $3,905 monthly. I want to add that to my military retirement and retire with the same standard of living. I will not ever quit GDI again. I know I was wasting at least $10 a month on nothing anyway. Cheers, Ed

Ed, I have now joined GDI again (yes, the fourth time). This time though it is through a program which will feed people into GDI under me. My sponsor said he's had 16 people join under him thru it (and that was before I joined). So I am confident that I too will build a good downline, and more important, the people I refer will be able to do the same! The program is a great free system call TheSpiderWebSystem. There are easy-to-follow videos that show you how to set things up, and once it's in place, it works automatically giving you 12 different streams of income. You set up a blog and the Spiderweb system keeps it automatically updated with new articles etc, so you rank high in the search engines, and some of the other streams of income are tied to it as well. I am not quite finished setting everything up as I've been away visiting family, but I only need to stay a couple of jumps ahead of my referrals :-) If anyone would like to check this out, you can do so at this link: http://thespiderwebsystem.com/kiwib I can recommend this!

Well i had been a member of GDI last 2006 for almost 6 months. What i thought is its Free to join coz i had made sign up to GDI but then, i was amazed coz they charged me $10 USD per month to my credit card without first sending me confirmation. When i emailed them they said that those fees they charged is for Domains Names which i didnt understand how it works.I constantly emailed them to let them know that i want to cancel my account as soon as possible but they responded me that they cannot cancel instantly but i should make a call to GDI. So what i did, i made calls everyday but no one answered me back that cost me more money to spend. I contacted their management head thru mail that those fees charged to me should be cut off or else...??!! I think it is a SCAM! Dont join them. marilyn23
