What’s a Funnel and Why Does it Matter?

Sailing with Albie!

Hi Team! 

If you don’t plan ahead, you will fall into someone else’s plan. 



 How are you this week? This week we had 5 subscribers, 4 people asked for the link, 2 people emailed me back and we had 3 new sign ups this week!

CONGRATS to our newest members: Harold, Charles, and welcome back Eric Agyekum!

As there are not any of our direct team members on Step Nine, we are helping Marija, Igor and Krishna as they have helped build our team too. 

Thanks to Elizabeth for helping us with more editing on Steps Two, Ten, Thirteen of the Sixteen Steps! Her team hit a total of 11,287 hits this week! Great work!

Arthurs has had 1842 hits for his team this week. Good job! 

Torab (under Arthur) has received a total of Six new members to his team and is our newest TEAM LEADER!

Congrats Torab! You deserve it! Torab has hit his weekly 1000 hits faithfully since October 2018 and has been moving consistently through the Steps.

Congrats to Steve for getting 4000 hits this week! This is really amazing! 

Great work Steve for getting through most of Step 5! Great work Edet for going through TEP. Congrats Steaven Jiles for getting through Step 2! Congrats to Roger Rivas working on Step 1. Great job Dustin for beginning getting hits to our team link.


 Good job everyone working to get to the next step or to get hits for the team including Lyn, Walter, Wayne & Leyon and Shane Please contact me this week to move forward.

  Mark, Brenna, Phil, Joseph, Esther, Brian Ramirez, Henry and Jeremy please contact me this week as we want to help you find success on our team too! 

We did combined total of 10,315 hits this week. If you add both Elizabeta’s team and Arthurs together we had  23,444 hits! Thank you for all your hits this week. For some we need to put in some more effort. We could NOT have done that many hits without ALL of your help. This combined total allowed us to bring in 3 new members this week, so remember how important you are to all of this.

Don’t forget that getting a 1000 hits allows you to be qualified to receive new members under you and become a team leader also.  Also don’t forget to go after getting you $25 starting bonus while you have time!





This week I want to share with you what a “funnel” is and why it’s SO important!

The Importance of a Funnel

So what exactly is a funnel and why is it so important?

The answer in short: A funnel is like Wall Mart. You walk in wanting a candy bar and walk out with a book, paper towels a movie, a game system and then you walk back in because you forgot the candy bar! You see…Its a specialized system that allows you to sell many targeted items that people need. 
But in our case the funnel is to eventually help YOU MAKE MONEY.

A funnel is a way to make a lot more money effectively helping people then you could ever make on a stand alone offer by itself.


With GDI Team Elite, the funnel is first to help build your knowledge and skill and also the team leaders business and then to help you BUILD YOUR business and YOUR teams knowledge and skill .

Let me share with you a business funnel that I was part of a while back. The name of the business was called MOBE and represented “My Online Business Education.” It cost $40 one time fee to join MOBE and this included a one on one personal coach for eight lessons on building an effective online business.
After the eighth lesson it became very expensive. Because of its super mentoring, it was very enticing to want to upgrade. I of course did upgrade and I leaned a ton from them, Their last high end ticket sale was $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) and they made that sale all the time. From this I leaned what an amazing funnel they had and  why their affiliates were making SO much money. It gave me an idea of what to do from them and what not to do.
What NOT to do was copy their greed as they eventually got taken down by the FTC, as there were too many complaints. Many people were spending too much and not making it back. Often however, this was their own fault as many people were not willing to actually work.
Our program is not like the MOBE program at all in that respect but has still taken valuable concepts from it’s funnel. But funnels are not original to MOBE. Almost every business online has a funnel of some sort. 
GDI Team Elite marketing system is an effective way of bringing people into a good solid business. And The Sixteen Steps funnel is way more powerful then GDI by itself …and you will get your own personal copy of the Steps on your own GDI website to share with your team when you finish the Sixteen Steps. The funnel teaches advertising, building your Email List, investing basics, personal development and many more things including duplication – which is crucial.
Duplication is the key to making real money with GDI. And this is explained in detail in the Sixteen Steps. Duplication helps you to build 5-8 strong teams which also duplicate and create income for you on many levels down.  Not only this but the Sixteen Steps funnel will double or triple what wealth your making from GDI alone.


Remember, GDI is only front end wealth. Other programs that really help us build our GDI advertising and our business are on the back end of the funnel. One such program is the Secret of the Big Dogs program.  And this program is effective in really helping team leaders bring in new people with their advertising.  Another program that pays out high residual monthly income (and powerful $500 – $1000 high ticket marketing education items) is the Power Lead System (PLS).


I hope this has helped you understand the importance of a good funnel. Honestly I don’t know a single funnel out there that teaches all we do in the Sixteen Steps and helps you build the vast amount of Income Streams as we have.

REQUIRED EARNINGS DISCLOSURE:  Any statements of particular income amounts, or any experiences shared by the individuals in this email or on our website are exceptional and likely do not represent the typical results. The info being shared here applies only to specific individuals and does not indicate that you will have the same results. As the only data we have to share with you comes from people such as these who voluntarily share what their incomes or experiences have been, it is factually impossible for us to state what the “typical” experience is. It is not possible for us to measure all results of all participants. All income derives only from the sale of products. This email and any content on our website shows only the potential possibilities of the program as it relates to these specific individuals. Again, THESE RESULTS MAY NOT BE TYPICAL. No results from any person using our program in the past should serve as any indication that your results will be similar in the future. In short, this is a business and there are no guarantees in business. Nothing in this presentation or on this website is intended to convey that there is any guarantee of income. Your results will depend on your execution in your business and how many sales you close/how much business you acquire, just as it would in any business in the world. If anything in this disclosure if not 100% clear to you, please do not continue. If you are offered another opportunity where they share testimonials or individual accounts of their results, and they do not make sure that the above disclosure clear, just know that they are not following the law of the USA. Hypothetically, even if every single participant became a millionaire (which they absolutely do not, this is only a hypothetical example to make a point), and we could document that hypothetical, we would still be required to make this disclosure.
