GDI - who's on it?

So, I've been tap dancing on the thin line between making this leap and staying in the safe zone, whereby obviously letting the opportunity pass. Again, like many opportunities, there will always be mixed reviews. One thing I noticed is that the number of good reviews outnumber the negative ones so that must speak for itself. Although, I think that the program and one's success is not limited to the number of referrals he/she an bring in on a monthly basis. It appears to me that you also need to have a good sponsor to guide you. Now, considering that Tissa Godavitarne is almost always on the leaderboards of GDI, one would think that the best move would be to join under his downline. Part of me thinks that it isn't a very good idea...Why? Well, he gets a great number of sign ups weekly and I think it's safe to say that many people aren't exactly digital marketing geniuses. Most are just newbies. Since this guy gets hundreds of sign ups per week, how can a sponsor like that effectively be able to teach people and guide his own downline when he has a downline of more than 10,000? I did further digging and I was right. Some people who signed up under him said they didn't get much help. I wasn't surprised about that. What did surprise me is that Tissa gets people to sign up under him in other sites that has paid memberships. Well, it's no wonder why he can offer the $125 USD commissions. He gets a good amount when you sign up for sites under him. He gets the affiliate commission which is really a good way to earn online as well. He is a marketing genius, I must say. Going back to whether or not I'll sign up for it. I still don't know. I think it's a pretty legit way to earn if you focus and put some time into it. You can go on Autopilot later on when you're satisfied with your earnings. That sounds pretty tempting apart from the bonuses and recurring income 5 levels deep. Still, I think this isn't for your average internet surfer. As I said, I'm still getting my feet wet with all these digital stuff. I am familiar with ad campaigns but I still believe in familiarizing myself with things before I proceed any further. Does anyone out there want to share their experience with GDI?

Well, I don't like it, myself. Joined 3 times and left each time. I'm not that great with social marketing, though. I found that the main problem was that the deal wasn't so great. You get a 7-day free trial, but that's not exactly enough. After that, you pay $10 a month for what you could get at a cheaper price. And really, couldn't you just get a free website instead? There are tons out there. But yes, if you can find a way to bundle GDI with something else, then that would probably be a good bet. Heck, if you can find a way to make GDI last, I'll join under you! It's got great potential, but it's just not enough... imo.

It was one of the first scams I joined! Well it may or may not be a scam, however, there are many hidden costs, the $125 he gives is there? But the payout to get that $125 is $250 so unless you get to that you don't get squat! You pat GDI ten a month! Tissa charges as I remember $25? And then they program has you join another thing that charges. The competition is very much out there! Plus you have to choose a catchy name for your people search site, well guess what so many people have joined there's nary a good one left! I tried 15 different names til I got one that wasn't being used! LOL! Good luck to you if you take the bait! tdemex

Hi! Finally I found the forum I have been looking for several months now. Many times I have been tempted to give away my credit card number or my paypal account in the step 4 of Tissa's sign-up page! Each time I'm on the box, I always got stuck up coz an inner voice seem to whisper to me if doing so is right. I admit I was only looking at the $125 but honestly, I have a little knowledge of how his program would work. Thank you for coming up here guys!

I am with GDI, and so far nothing. I have until pretty much almost till the end of he month before I have to pay the $30. I am not happy with it, and I will more than likely cancel before I pay him anyhing. I have already paid the first $10, and I am not happy about paying it again. It sounded good, but I should have checked it all out first, Now I feel I am being scammed, but only if I pay more money out and I get nothing. I won't let that happen. This is the last time I will ever join an affiliate program. It just isn't for me, I am afraid. I guess after being scammed before, I haven't really learned my lessson. I intend to cancel before the 30 days is up. I will not let paypal pay him anything. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

no doubt that GDI is not for everyone not only GDI but we can say that MLM is not for everyone. This system is for the people who are good in making people their partner and for those who has big dreams to follow. I was not proud being with GDI earlier but now i think i am proud to be with GDI. Actually this is my 2nd chance with GDI and happy to say that i got my first payment from it. Now in this team, my sponsor is taking care of my downline and i just promote it online and that is free of cost..We work as a team. We don't promote our personal links. For more information pls. feel free to visit my profile and the link on it...
