1. Financial Rescue Plan: Let's help each other!

Now more than ever, we need to support each other.

In today's economic climate, we all need to cut expenses.

But another approach is to help each other RAISE INCOME.

You can't rely on a single paycheck anymore. You must create multiple streams of income from diversified sources.

This enables you to live the lifestyle you are accustomed to, and build a nest egg for the tough times ahead.

To support you, we put together a Financial Rescue Plan that offers a few additional sources of income, and supports each other in the process.

It's called the BE THE MEDIA Affiliate program.

2. Earn money through Affiliate programs

Affiliate programs are win-win arrangements.

Many companies (like us) partner up with affiliates (like you) to help sell products and services. Affiliates are paid a commission for every lead that results in a sale.

Affiliate programs allow you to easily:

* Create multiple streams of income from your home/office
* Generate passive cash flow for you or your organization
* Monetize your blog, website, newsletter, or e-zine readers
* Add off-budget revenue to your company's bottom line
* Pay down debt like credit cards, student loans, mortgages
* Earn extra cash to buy family gifts, or a dream vacation
* Put money towards your children's education
* Save more for a secure, dignified, and joyous retirement

For the Affiliate (you), sales are pure profit:

No work: The company handles order processing, packing, shipping, handling, invoicing, returns, and customer service.

Hassle-free income: You earn income with no overhead, no employees, no buildings to lease, no equipment to maintain, no paperwork, no inventory, development, or procurement.

You collect checks: You earn money by simply referring products to friends and colleagues. Earn while on vacation, spending time with family, at work, even while you sleep!

3. BE THE MEDIA Affiliate programs

We want your holidays and new year to be happy, prosperous, and abundant.

You can start earning extra money now with our BE THE MEDIA Affiliate programs.

We make it easy. Just three simple steps to "found" money:
1. You refer a customer to us
2. They buy our products and services
3. We pay you 20% sales commission!

How can we afford to pay such high commissions? After all, our 20% sales commission to you is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE than a typical author would receive from a standard publishing contract. And you don't even have to write a book!

In the past, the majority of revenues from your purchase of that $20 book, CD, or DVD went to support armies of overpaid executives, lawyers, accountants, distributors, promoters, and resellers like Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon - everyone but your favorite artist.

We'd rather reward our network of friends and fans for their support and patronage, instead of supporting corporations.

We cut OUT the middlemen in order to CUT YOU IN on the rewards. Because we proudly self-published, our book took longer and cost us more to produce, but we now own and control the rights and royalties.

Thanks to self-publishing, we can afford to GIVE BACK TO YOU - our fans, friends, nonprofits, schools, charities, and foundations.

Your earning potential is unlimited. We'll help you make money, what you do with the money is up to you...

The more money you make, the more resources you have - to help others, to be more creative, to spend more quality time with family, to take a vacation with friends, to fund a charity, to pay down debt, or just to have some fun.

We offer three Affiliate programs:

1. BOOK Affiliate program: Recommend our book, BE THE MEDIA, to your friends, family, and colleagues.

At $34.95 per book, your 20% commission is almost $7 per book:

Sell 100 books, earn $700
Sell 1,000 books, earn $7,000
Sell 10,000 books, earn $70,000
Sell 100,000 books, earn $700,000

2. SPEAKING Affiliate program: A speaker referral can earn BIG money. If your referral results in a keynote speech for $5,000, your 20% commission earns you a $1,000 PAYDAY!

3. CONSULTING Affiliate program: If your referral results in a one-hour ($300) consultation, your 20% earns you $60!

We give you all the tools you need to succeed. You simply cut-and-paste your Affiliate links or graphics into your:

Status updates on FaceBook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter
Email: We even provide sample emails and sales copy
Web site/Blog: Use our links, graphics, and sales copy
Newsletters and ezines: Promote to your subscribers
Advertisements: Websites, blogs, newspapers & magazines

Our programs are available to all: individuals, groups, websites, blogs, schools, corporations, foundations, and nonprofits.

Our Affiliates include:

Individuals using FaceBook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter
Websites and blogs wanting to monetizing their audience
Newsletter, ezine publishers that skyrocketed earnings

5. We are hiring!

Large publishers, labels, and film studios are downsizing, restructuring, consolidating, going out of business, cutting staff, firing executives, and not accepting new projects.

But BE THE MEDIA - and smart artists who follow our advice - are flourishing. Why is that?

It's because our way of creating and promoting books, music, and video is the wave of the future.

We reward and support our fans and patrons, not faceless corporations and conglomerates.

We are happy to be able to help qualified people. We are currently looking to fill internship positions, and hire full-time and part-time employees.

Many positions (especially sales) can be done remotely.

Sales: Full and part-time, remote or local. Direct sales and commissioned rep positions available throughout the country.

Affiliate sales: Positions available immediately, apply now.

Other Positions: Bloggers, Graphic and Web Designers,  Developers, Web 2.0 Gurus; Public Relations; Marketing; Conference/Events Coordinator; more.
