Janet Legere Speaks Out About Joel Therien and GVO

Janet Legere Speaks Out About Joel Therien and GVO

A Review of GVO Then and Now

The Good Old Days

I remember the good old days of Kiosk, hosting, super-responder, FFA leads.  It was a great system and well ahead of its time back in 2000.

I used the FFA leads to feed my subscriber list and it worked very well.  I taught others how to use the system and how to build their list using the FFA leads.

Then the worst thing happened.  In 2003, The technology company we were using went under and we were left high and dry for our live webinars. There were very few options available and Joel Therien’s Hot Conference fit the bill nicely!

Hot Conference Technology To The Rescue

In comes Hot Conference. Now, I have to admit it was really rough in the early days. The rooms were always crashing, people had challenges downloading the plugins. They were not very user friendly however, when they worked, they worked exceptionally well and the Hot Conference technology helped us continue on with our business.

We came to know Joel Therien and the crew personally, many of whom are still with Joel today! That in itself is a testament to the commitment Joel gives to his members.

In all the years I’ve known Joel, he’s been true to his word and always honest with his members … even when things don’t turn out as he had intended which often happened.

There have been good times and bad times and Joel has always been there to support us and we in turn have supported him.

The GVO Umbrella

When Joel announced the idea of GVO – Global Virtual Opportunities, I thought it couldn’t get any better. He’d managed to take all the “work” out of what I was teaching by providing a one stop resource for online business.  

Hosting, Video Hosting, Video Web Conferencing, Professional Auto-Responder and more all under ONE roof!  

And to make it even better there was a compensation plan to match! But that wasn’t enough, not long after GVO was well established, Joel decided to capitalize on the Internet Market with Pure Leverage and I admit, Pure Leverage is PURE GENIUS!

At last there was a package where the average marketer could be up and running their business, building their list and blogging in a few simple steps. The compensation plan was very lucrative and caused a huge sensation throughout the Internet.

But Joel did not stop there … he always has his customers best interests at heart and his crowning achievement came out in late 2014 with Got Backup; a simple yet powerful online backup system that is truly unique! Unique due to the simplicity of setting it up and using it and unique in that you get paid to refer others to Back up!

Stability Builds Trust

Over the past 15 years, Joel and his team have always been there for us.  

Has it been an easy ride?  No.  Have there been challenges?  Yes.  Has Joel made mistakes along the way?  YES!

And with all the hurdles, challenges and mistakes, Joel has been there to support his members and over come any challenges that present themselves.  

Has business improved?  OH YES!  

It’s been an honour to be part of the growth of this company and an honour to call Joel Therien my friend. 15 years of service helping us grow our online business – that’s Joel Therien and that’s why I support and recommend all the products that are part of the GVO umbrella!

The GVO Umbrella of companies can create an income stream for you that will be very lucrative! Start with GVO/Host Then Profit at $9.97 a month

Upgrade from inside Host Then Profit to Pure Leverage and signup as a Reseller. Your cost is $24.95 for the product suite and $19.95 for the Reseller fee. If you are confident you can follow the steps to setup and promote Pure Leverage then consider upgrading to VIP to open your full potential. VIP is an additional $97.00 per month.

Upgrade from inside GVO/Host Then Profit to Got Backup. Choose from any of the packages available, for as little as $7.99 a month to protect all your data. As a Pure Leverage Reseller, you qualify as a Reseller for Got Backup too.  So now you have THREE income sources with ONE company!

Happy Marketing!

Got Backup Exceeding Expectations

Has this ever happened to you?  You turn on your computer and nothing … nothing is happening and then you realize, all your data is gone.  Everything you had.  It will take hours or days to get back what you lost if you can get it back at all.

Starting from scratch is never fun.  I talk to people all the time who lose their precious pictures and files that cannot be replaced.

Now, you never have to worry about any of your files again as Got Backup has you completely covered.


When Joel Therien, CEO of Got Backup and the GVO family of Programs, starting talking about this program I was very excited because I knew the market was very ready for a simple way to protect themselves.

Setup takes about 5 minutes and most of that is watching a video on how to setup.  It really is that simple and reliable!

With three options to choose from, protecting yourself has never been more affordable!



And for the adventurous, there is an income opportunity attached to Got Backup that beats anything in its league, in fact, there is nothing that compares!

Is GVO The Ultimate Marketers Toolbox?

Is GVO The Ultimate Marketers Toolbox?

GVO Global Virtual Opportunities


Global Virtual Opportunities – GVO

When marketing on the internet, sometimes you feel like your head is going to explode! The amount of tools, systems, and services out there will make your head spin which make promises of easy riches when you use them.

Every day, there seems to be another “magic tool” that pops up promising millions of visitors to your site and large sums of money in your bank account….effortlessly.

It can get overwhelming and take focus away from what you should be doing to build your business.

As you know, there are tools out there that not only make your life easier, but keep your business running on auto-pilot for you.

The trick is to know which ones to focus on and which ones to stay away from!

Let’s go through the essentials which every top internet marketer depends on a daily basis to run their million dollar businesses…

1) Web Hosting

Obviously, without hosting, the internet would be a pretty boring place to hang out. If you have a domain name, you need a place to host it so others can find you.

Hosting companies out there range from free all the way to over $500 a month for dedicated hosting.

The key is to find a company that provides 99% uptime and also provides 24/7 support in case you ever have a problem.

And of course, just like anything, you get what you pay for.

2) Auto-Responders

Have you heard the phrase, “The Money Is In The List?”

Well, having an autoresponder and building a list that knows, likes, and trusts you is the fastest way to literally pushing a button and having money coming in your bank account… faster than you can say… Hot Biscuits!

The formula is simple.

Create a page that gives something of huge value totally away for free. This could be a free report, a video lesson, an audio interview, or a live webinar.

Then, in exchange for your free information, the visitor will give you their name and email address.

And then the magic happens. You can follow up with them automatically and offer more value and even get them to buy something!

This is all done using an auto-repsonder, all automatically and efficiently for you.

Again, companies providing auto-responders range from $20 a month up to $99 a month.

3) Video Hosting

The internet is all about video. And without some type of video on your website, most people will simply not hang around.

Video allows you to bond with your visitor and create more trust than with just words on your site.

We’ve all heard of YouTube for sure. But is a free service that is known for pranks, jokes, and music videos the right image for your business?

There’s a reason the top marketers host their videos through paid services and you should to.

4) Website Builder and Prospecting System

99% of internet marketers don’t have the time and/or the skills to create their own websites or prospecting pages. Trying to learn website design and html code is not the best way to spend your time.

That’s where website builders come in. You simply customize your pages with your own video, product info, auto-responder, and you’re done!

5) Live Webcasts

The most powerful way to sell is face to face. You get instant feedback and customers can ask questions and get their answers immediately.

Since we don’t want to meet all our visitors in person… Webcasts are the next best thing.

We can sit in the comfort of our own homes and present to people all over the world. Product demonstrations, video overviews, live questions and answers, it’s all possible with Webcasts.

If you’re not using Webcasts in your business, you are missing out on thousands of dollars of sales.

Typical companies charge between $49 to $99 a month and more.

The Top 5 Essential Tools

These are the top five tools that every top marketer uses and depends on a daily basis to make sales on auto-pilot.

And you can too.

Now, you can get all these great tools from different companies and pay between $150 to over $350 each and every month.

Or, you can make the smart decision and get them all from one company and save a huge amount of money.

GVO offers all these tools under one roof and for only $1.45 a day. That’s less than a Starbucks coffee!

And the best part is, for a limited time, you can take advantage of all these amazing tools and profit with them for a full 14 days for only a $1.

Don’t decide now, use all the tools and see how powerful they are and how they will help explode your business online right now.

Go here for your test drive:

The 5 Steps to Branding You

The Internet can be a great place to find people who share the same passion as you, people who may be interested in the business, product or service that you offer. How can these people find you? Through Personal Branding …

Enjoy the Recorded Webinar on 5 Steps to Branding You with Janet & Don Legere

What is Branding?

Whatever business, product or service you are promoting, you need to get it in front of people. You rely on people in order to make money in your business. And if you don’t yet have a business, well the best way to build one is from a responsive list of contacts.

In order to create a responsive list of contacts, you need a place where people can learn more about you, your passions and your business. You need a place where you share your experiences and your skills.

Branding you on the Internet is all about creating an environment where people can get to know, like and trust you. When someone gets to know like and trust you, they will buy from you and become repeat customers and loyal members.

How does one go about creating a brand online?

The 5 Steps of Creating a Personal Brand

There are basically 5 steps needed to create your personal brand. As with any setup, each step in itself may contain many smaller steps. The 5 main steps to branding you are

Registering a Domain Name
Hosting Your Domain and Installing WordPress
Setting up a professional auto-responder and subscriber optin form
Writing posts and recording videos
Getting Traffic

Let’s start with talking about registering a domain name.

Step 1. Your Domain Name

It’s important that you register a domain name that has your name in it such as janedoe.com. If your name is a common name, such as Jane Doe, then you may need to consider adding a hyphen jane-doe.com or getting creating with things like whoisjanedoe.com and janedoeonline.com. By now, you are getting the picture.

The important thing here is that the domain includes your name.

You can purchase domains and an reliable Domain Registry such as GoDaddy or eNom Central or Name cheap to name a few.

When you register your .com domain name, you are simply buying the name. Now you need someplace to ‘host’ your domain.

Step 2. Hosting Your Domain

Hosting your domain is something you need to think about before jumping in. You want to make sure to use a reliable Host Provider. There are several popular ones, HostGator comes to mind as the most popular and affordable host.

Our recommendation is GVO / HostThenProfit (HTP). GVO (Global Virtual Oppotunities) offers solutions from $9.97 per month with HTP to $44.95 a month for the full Titanium Package with GVO.

At HostThenProfit, for $9.97 per month, you receive hosting for up to 4 domains, a professional auto-responder with up to 5 campaigns and 500 subscribers, video hosting for up to 5 videos (commercial free) and a small video conference room perfect for small meetings.


Setting up your new domain and installing a WordPress blog is simple and we offer full instructions for the GVO installation. Most hosting companies offer video training (as does GVO), so setup is very simple and common at most hosts.

Setting up your Domain with a WordPress blog will take anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes depending on your experience.

Don’t spend too much time selecting themes at this point, download a few and pick one that feels good, it’s fairly simple to change the theme down the road.

We want to get the entire blog working so we can start using it to build those relationships 🙂

Step 3. Setup Your Auto-Responder and Optin Form

Regardless of what business you are promoting, you need to be building your list and you NEED a professional auto-responder. In Step 2. we discussed GVO and HostThenProfit, both services offer a professional auto-responder. Other great options include GetResponse, AWeber and TrafficWave. There are many others, those are the top 4 (including GVO).


Setting up your Auto-responder is fairly straight forward and involves setting up a campaign or list, setting up some followup messages and creating an optin form.

Initially, all you need is a simple followup email to reply to your subscriber once they confirm their email address. Normally this initial email includes a link to a free report along with your contact information.

Each auto-responder is a bit different and very similar and they all offer simple steps on how to setup your list. The importance here is getting this setup and your Optin Form on your blog.

The Optin Form normally is placed as a Text Widget in the Side bar. It is recommended that the form be right at the top of the side bar (the first thing your visitor sees on the right or left (right is preferred)

Remember, there will be plenty of time to pretty up your new blog and add your profile information, About page, etc. Let’s get the basics done so we can have someplace to start telling our story and sharing our passion.

Step 4. Writing Posts and Recording Videos

Yes, video … you CAN record your own videos, it’s easier than you think and so is writing blog posts.

People get afraid of writing blog posts thinking they need to be award winning authors, when that is just not true.

All you need is something to write about … so here are some ideas …

Write about your experience as you experience it here online … your first post can be about your experience installing your own domain and setting up your fist blog!

Write about your passion … what excites your, your hobbies. People are interested in what you do and who you are and the more you share about your passion and your experience, the more you will attract people who like what they read … people who will subscribe to your list and become long term repeat customers and business builders.

Write about the webinars you attend. If you attend training webinars and learn useful information, come and write about it on your blog. People are interested to hear what other people learn. If you apply what you learn, share your results. I do encourage you to ALWAYS apply what you learn 🙂

That should be enough to get you going. Your post does not have to be long, 3 or 4 paragraphs are plenty. Once your post is written, you will not want to record a video to add.

Recording a Video is simpler than it looks. All you are going to do is introduce your blog post. So let’s say you wrote a blog post about the Webinar you attended on the 5 Steps to Brand you and from that webinar you learned the importance of taking action. Your video script may look like this:

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is YOURNAME and today, I want to share with you a post I wrote about a webinar I recently attended where I learned all about the 5 Steps to Brand yourself and the importance of Taking action. I hope you enjoy my post and encourage you leave your comments. If you aren’t already subscribed to my list, you’ll find the form on this page, be sure to signup for my free report. Thanks and have a great day.

With script in hand, you press Record on your Webcam and read the script. Practice it a few times first – the more natural you can sound the better.


If you decided to go with GVO/HTP, you will be able to upload your video to the Easy Video Producer area OR you can upload it to Youtube. Once uploaded, you will be able to create an embed code that you will paste into your blog post at the top of the post.

And that’s it, you have created your first WordPress blog and written your first post and recorded your first video. Congratulations … now we need to get traffic to your blog.

Getting Traffic To Your Webiste

There are many ways to get traffic to your blog. You can us Traffic Exchanges (yes they work) and even Safelists. We talked recently on one of our webinars about how effective it is to send an email to a Safelist or Credit List and ask members to comment on your blog. While there, they may subscribe to your list if you are offering something of value OR if they like your post!

Social Networks are a great place to get people to read your blog posts. You can get involved in groups and share with members, you can ask your friends to read and comment. Using Social Networks to share your blogs creates a strong bond between you and your Facebook friends as they begin to see the value you are offering rather than prospecting them directly for your business.

Another way to get traffic to your blog is through article marketing. With article marketing, you can write an article on a topic and then direct your readers to your blog to read the topic in more detail. Article marketing can be fun and profitable.

And that’s all there is to Branding You. Remember, your blog is like your “home”. It’s where visitors get to know, like and trust you. This creates long term customers and repeat buyers and will attract the right people to your business. Keep it real, keep it about your experiences and your passion and watch how your business grows.

Happy Branding!

Turning Point

Turning Point

Back from Vegas and ready to take on the world … still winding down or is it back up again?  Don and I just got back from an amazing week in Vegas.  On the weekend we attended our First Turning Point seminar with Marshall Sylver and it was truly amazing and life changing for both Don and me.

To begin the weekend, there was a get together Friday evening with the group from GVO.  It was a great pleasure to finally meet, in person, all the people I’ve been working with for the past 8 months.  Joel Therien, MikeyP,  the GVO Academy team .. Mark, Ken, Gerry and Jerry :-), Tracie and Jaime and all the GVO folks … we met so many folks from our GVO classes, it was great to put a face to all your names I see on the training calls.

The highlight of my night Friday was receiving an award from my peers as GVO Academy Trainer of the Year.  I am very honoured to receive this title and intend to hold it with pride.

Don and I came to Turning Point with some apprehension and within a few moments we both knew how powerful this weekend was going to be for us.  We heard very little that we had not heard before.  What was different was how we heard it.  Marshall Sylver has a way of getting his point across that is quite unique.

You see .. Marshall Sylver is also a hypnotist and it is through Hypnotism that he helps us to “reprogram” our thinking to get what we want in life.

Don and I both see changes  … we feel changed and WE ATE FIRE!  You will see our videos below.

We are excited about attending the First Million seminar and know there is only one way to go from here … POWER!
