Start Your Own Web Hosting Affiliate Business

Did you know that many web hosting companies have their own affiliate programs and will pay you commissions for referring others to them? Hostgator Lunarpages, and GVO are just a few.

Today I would like to examine one of those companies. They are Global Virtual Opportunities (GVO).

"Why GVO?"

I get asked this a lot from people starting out in internet marketing.

Usually it stems from people who can't understand why they would want to pay $44.95 a month for web hosting when they can go to another company and pay less than $10 a month.

And what I try to explain to everyone is that price isn't everything. In fact, it's not necessarily the most important thing.

GVO is a perfect case study for what one should look for when they are anaylzing different internet businesses and trying to decide on one with which to get involved.

If you've never heard of GVO, then let's briefly go over some facts about the company.

Global Virtual Opportunities (GVO) is a web hosting company. They have been around for over 10 years, and originally was known as Kiosk based out of Canada. Several years ago, Joel Therien, CEO and President of Kiosk, started looking for a new home for his company because they ran out of bandwidth in Canada.

After doing a lot of research he purchased some land in San Antonio, Texas, the fiber optics capital of the world, and built a new datacenter and headquarters for what would be renamed GVO.

There are a lot of web hosting companies that will pay you a commission for referring someone to them. But there aren't a lot that are built on an MLM payout structure.

Those of you who know me or have read other works by me know that I am big MLM guy. I love multi-level marketing businesses. There are several reasons for this.

  1. You can leverage the production of your team (usually both upline and downline members) to increase your commissions. Since MLMs usually pay you a piece of everything your team members make, this can really boost your earnings, which is extremely important if you are just starting out with internet marketing.
  2. MLMs often times pay residual commissions which means you earn commissions every month for just doing a single sale as long as your referrals remain subscribed every month.
  3. Your upline and downline can help you build your team by placing people on your team, which means increased commissions for you.

GVO has all of these key features which makes it extremely attractive as a business opportunity.

However, as I've often stated previously, there is no business opportunity if there is no product. And, to be a great product, it has to have a unique competitive advantage. And this is where GVO really shines.

The fact is there are a lot of fine web hosting companies in the market place. But what sets GVO apart from the rest is that they also have great marketing tools to go along with their great web hosting.

You see, Joel Therien created Kiosk, and then GVO, as an internet marketing company FOR internet marketers. Every product was designed with this idea at the forefront.

So not only does GVO provide web hosting, but they also provide an autoresponder, conferencing software, video production and hosting, and much more. And it is all packaged together under one roof for one low price.

GVO has a competitive commission structure, but they also have a great product that affiliates can market to the public.

One other very important aspect of GVO is that they are solely owned by Joel Therien and have no stockholders or Board of Directors that all decisions have to go to beforehand, which can really slow down the decision making process.

The land, the datacenter, the equipment, and even all the source code, is owned by GVO. Consequently, when the users make a great suggestion, it can usually be implemented very quickly. This is a very advantageous position that GVO has over most of its competitiors.

So, this brings us back to the original question.

"Why GVO?"

Maybe the better question would be, "Why not GVO?"
