Crazygood Work-a-rounds

Discussing Work-arounds for Crazygood
– by Al King, CEO and Founder of TopNetworkersgroup

Crazygood is a private social network that rolled out in November of 2010. It was a very promising website at the time, due to it’s affordable cost and lucrative compensation plan. Lots of people signed up during the first six months, and then things started to unravel.

Crazygood Community Issues

Crazygood CommunityThere’s a general rule on Facebook, perhaps the most popular social network on the planet. That rule is, never post links on other people’s pages. Several of the early members joining crazygood were violating this Rule; perhaps because Crazygood isn’t Facebook. I witnessed a few wall arguments, but other than that the community was always positive…

That wasn’t an issue – however the SPEED of the website always was.

Crazygood Slowness, and Newbie Attitudes.

The low cost of entry combined with the slow speed of the website caused a lot of the people who joined crazygood to quit just as fast as they signed up. After Six months Crazygood had a lot of Dead accounts; and for the next 6 months I watched more and more people slowly participate less and less.

My career in the MLM/affiliate world didn’t begin in 2010 however.

I started out in ACN, in 1998. We learned then, that when you find an Opportunity, in order to build an Organization you must first Create an Environment for your team to Win In.

We did that, by creating several Tools to help our Team Market the Opportunity, Capture Leads, and find Real business partners to make money with in Crazygood, and beyond.

In my eyes, Crazygood was never the opportunity to retire on; but it Did provide a lucrative earning potential for anyone willing to put in the work. We created a Version of Crazygood’s Earning Worsheet – To Show you The money.

What Else We’ve done ….

We built an entire Training Website to provide support, and Education so that a Newbie could learn HOW to make money.

Most of our team members chose not to use that website; but what else is new in network marketing?  In 1998 people would join my company, spend $499 and skip out on Coming to Training Events to Learn how to make money in the business they just signed up for. Even after struggling, several of the people would refuse any education. The idea that perhaps they needed more skill escaped many of them in 1998, all the way up through 2004, before I walked away from ACN, and began building websites for small businesses.

However the training and support office is still here, and exists as a Work-a-round for Crazygood; since it’s a bare bones affiliate program with literally no training or support for their affiliates. Depending on ones attitude, this can be seen as a bad thing – OR as a tremendous Opportunity.

Me and my business partners decided to be Leaders; and we created even more tools; Including the Crazygood Sales Funnel showing people how they can “Turn $10 into $10,000 per month” – and then rolled out a LIVE OFFICE Where we talk with Members of our team, and their guests – LIVE – using modern technology (the internet) – and lastly, in December of 2012, TopNetworkersGroup unleased the One MLM System to Rule them all – which initially used Crazygood as a Required Program to sign up for, to use our system; but is now one of 2 options, on our $10 Level, that Free members of our team can use to start Earning Money, with the network they build while using our mlm system.

To THIS day, Crazygood has Continued to Pay me, month after month.

And while I have not made a LOT of money, I can proudly say I’ve been In profit for all 3 years of my involvement with this company. I will even be releasing a funnel soon, that will SHOW YOU the Paypal Proofs; something I never like doing – but am only doing it to prove a point; that if you’re really Hungry to make money, you CAN make money here; you simply need to be willing to Commit to something so that others will follow you; Commit to a team that will work with you, and teach you the things you Do not know – You must leave your EGO at the door, because the truth is – Making money With Crazygood is no Different from Making Money with MCA, Solavei, iLA, ACN, Amway, or Any Other Opportunity in the MLM Industry.

The Mechanics, Fundamentals, Techniques, …. the Skillset – whatever you want to call it; it’s all the same. The ones who learn it only struggle to find people that can ‘afford’ the business they are offering. That’s what drew me to the Crazygood opportunity – I saw a way to help people earn money, and build a network – a core value of TopNetworkersGroup today. I have some more ‘specific’ Crazygood Work-a-rounds to share with you – because by no means is this a Perfect Website.

I mentioned the slowness, and lack of real community rules in place – no training or support; no marketing materials – they Recently created a Overview Video in just the past 4-5 months; that is a real upgrade; but thankfully We put several tools in place to fill in the gaps, where Crazygood was missing them.

If you happened to Join Crazygood and worked with any other team, then you did not have access to these tools. I am old school and am 100% against Stealing people from others; So I recommend you Reactivate your OLD membership – and then simply use our 1mlmsystem to Work with our team, Get Training, and access to the Tools WE provide for members of our team.

Read MORE from us – helpful information to put more money into your pocket – IF you take advantage of what we are sharing. When it comes to Opportunity, it is a window – it will close. Some will benefit from the window while it’s open. Others will look for reasons why they couldn’t benefit. We’re not looking to work with those people. We’re looking for winners. We are looking for problem solvers, and solution seekers.

Maybe it’s You, and Not Crazygood

*Update 2/25/2015 ::: Crazygood Went out of Business – and you can read MUCH more about it in this article, which discusses how We ended up Replacing Crazygood with GDI in our One MLM System — This article includes our official video with thoughts on why CG was unable to make it past 3 years in business. Also – educate yourself about business – and understand that it’s rare for ANY Business to make it past 5 years in business; even fewer make it past 10. Our alignment with GDI, is a great move for us all.

The One MLM System To Rule Them All

Crazygood is an Awesome Opportunity………  If you’re not having success with it, then perhaps it’s you and Not Crazygood?

Where else on the Wide World Web can YOU find a $10/mo Opportunity that pays you and I $1 per referral, per month, through 5 levels ….

Other than GDI – there are NO Other ‘opportunities’ like that On the internet today.

Now, there are several $10 business opportunities; but NONE pay out as much as this one does; That makes this something special.

But if YOU Don’t Know that …. how will the people YOU are talking to?

If you’re running up to people telling them about Crazygood, and you’re not saying the right things in that conversation to Sign people up; then perhaps What you’re saying is wrong?

Have you thought about that?

Unless you already have people that will follow you into anything you are doing, you Must embrace the approaches of Network Marketing that have worked for decades…

Such as…

#1 – Getting Yourself Out of The Way!

Most people in Network Marketing talk too much…. its true. Lots of people join because they see a way for Other people to listen to them talk.

Some people actually LIKE the sound of their own voice so much, it motivates them to join MLM opportunities; the problem with these people is, they never LISTEN and/or LEARN what they should be talking about; because they are too busy talking….

One of the KEYS to getting yourself out of the way is … Knowing how and when to SHUT UP!

Most of the Top Money earners are GREAT at Shutting up, at the right time – they know when to talk; they know when to shut up; and if you’re struggling to sponsor people into a $10 opportunity, this is the first place you should examine yourself…

Are you talking too much?

Do you need to shut up?

Here are some examples to help you decide………

You approach someone that you know, ask them if they’d like to make money online with you, and then…. what do you do?

Do you wait for them to answer you?

Or do you SHOVE a LINK In their face/inbox/email —-without ever giving them a chance to Respond to your question?

Or perhaps they answer you and say “Sure, I’d like to make money, doing what?” … and then YOU think that is YOUR moment to Talk, so you explain every detail and aspect of crazygood; leaving out all the things they really need to hear; and Never once send them to a Website to view a presentation, NOR do you think of Edifying a business partner to talk to THEM on your behalf — all because you’re too busy Talking and Yapping away.

Your prospect decides this isn’t for them — and you can’t figure out why.

Did the person that sponsored YOU explain the business?

Or, did they Shut up, and Show you the business?

If they’re GOOD at this, they shut up and Showed you the business; so that YOU could see the business and decide for yourself if YOU wanted in the business. That’s what you need to learn how to do; You’ve gotta stop giving presentations before the presentations; you’ll get your chances to shine, you’ll get your chances to talk, you’ll eventually get crowds coming to see you … once you learn how to shut up, and show the business.

#2 Edifying and Using Team Partners

Network Marketing is a Team Sport; Too many individuals are joining the industry today; and here is why – the ability to conduct online credit card transactions has made it so much easier for anyone to join any company; at any time…

So people join every single day, who have not been brought through the process properly – and when the process is shown to them, they immediately judge it as too hard, too difficult, too time consuming, or some other ‘too’ – all because they were not introduced properly.

One of the most tragic aspects of this New Age in MLM where anyone can join, is the lost art of Edification…

People joining our industry are bringing the nonsense they got from Corporate America into our wonderful industry; such as backstabbing, stealing, talking bad about others — none of that has a place in Network Marketing ‘done right’ — and it’s a Major reason why people are struggling to succeed.

Edification is a Major Skill we all must have, and use if we expect to get results; Especially with Crazygood. If you just joined today, there are people who have been around longer than you; you need to respect these people — that’s where most of this begins; if you do not respect others; You will not edify others.

IF you do not edify others; No one will ever edify you.

Did that last part make sense?

When we build up respect for our partners; They can build up respect for us; When people see people who are speaking highly of each other, they want to be part of that; See most of you keep making Crazygood ‘the deal’ – you don’t get it…

You really don’t get it!

Crazygood is just a Way to make money; but we Must learn how to work ‘together’ if we are going to make Money together… the better we are at working together, the MORE money we are going to make together; but we must work together; not as individuals.

I’ve been on Crazygood for 2 years; and I have rarely done a 3way for anyone on my team; the few times that I have, I was not edified – and the people I was being asked to speak to, had No respect for me, or my opinion …

How do you think those calls went?

The point of Edifying others is to give our prospects a Reason to Listen – that’s mostly what they want to know  – “Who is your business partner and why should I listen to them?”

.. when YOU do your job properly, you tell your prospect Why they should listen  and like magic, most of your prospects will listen; and show respect while they listen…

When you get good at edifying your business partners, next you’ll learn how important it is to edify your team; to edify your calls; to edify your websites; your videos; This is a Lost Art and if We do not make this an Important part of what we do; we’re asking to fail!

#3 Using Events to Build …

This is our last  thing that I Must point out – the Importance of using Events to build your business. Events are ‘live’ conference calls, webinars, home meetings, or hotel meetings.

When we bring guests to an event and they hear 10 to 20 other people who are as excited about ‘something’ as you are; it builds more excitement for that guest as well.

We ran some experiments with our Crazygood Live Office; where myself and a business partner brought in close to 3,000 people that were ‘clicking to make money’ — We signed up 10-15 NEW business partners; simply because they saw PEOPLE in the room.  The live office shows you how many people are currently online; So people would drop in, see 1,000 people logged in, and the FIRST Thing they started to do was ask us “what is going on?”

When people see Other people doing something, They want to do it too.

Using, and building Events is the MOST important thing we do.

All top producers in any opportunity do this …

However in the past 2 years with crazygood; I’ve seen several leaders, including myself and our team, Hold Weekly Calls that people just didn’t show up for…

And you people want to make money??

You wonder why it’s not happening for you??

Showing up to events is part of it; Inviting guests to events is the other part.

OUR job, when working together, is to BUILD from “event to event” … It’s to use the proper language and approaches to invite guests to Events that will properly expose them to what we’re seeking to do … together; and the better we are at that; the more people will want to join ‘us’ …

So if there is a Live Call on Monday, a Webinar on Thursday, and a Live Meeting on Saturday …. YOU should take a guest to each event.

You shut up, get yourself out of the way, edify a business partner, allow them to help invite your guest to the Conference Call on Monday, where they will hear from leaders on the team; get excited; and then your business partner edifies YOU to your guest, so that you can be successful at inviting them to the live Webinar on Thursday; Because you put in work, your leaders may recognize you on the call, in front of everyone on the team – including your guest — and if they do not Join you after the Webinar, but are still excited – THEY will come to the LIVE event on Saturday; after the live event — If they don’t sign up; it’s probably just not for them — however — it has been proven over several decades that when we build in this manner, we increase the odds of sponsoring new people.

Chances are, YOU are not doing ANY Of these 3 things…

So see, while you are making excuses, OUR team is making money.

Swom vs. Crazygood :: which is better?

As one of the proponents of SWOM for several months, some things have come to light, recent changes, that have Changed my feelings about this network. It’s getting worse, not better.

As a leader in the network marketing industry, many people trust my business decisions; When SWOM originally came out, the opportunity was new, a fresh idea – and it had a lot of good things going for it.

If you have no idea what SWOM is about, please watch this free, 1 hour ‘training’ about how to make money with SWOM – BUT – Oh No! – MOST of the information shared, is now Changed.
The benefits blue members had, are now gone. Those changes, make it difficult for blue members to see the ‘value’ of upgrading to Gold, and this means, Gold members are not making money on the site.

Many will argue that the ‘real value’ of SWOM is found in building relationships with like minded people. That the goal is to funnel people from SWOM, into your other business opportunities – email lists – etc…

Even I made this argument, BEFORE the recent changes; now Blue members are limited to how many profiles they can view, and they’ve made it extremely difficult for a blue member, to seriously market their opportunities, email lists, etc. – so the ONLY way to do this, is to upgrade to Gold.

However, no one wants to pay money, just to build relationships, and build their list, when they can do that for FREE on Facebook, a site with over 500 Million users; where as SWOM just recently broke the 100,000 mark — the Only POINT of paying Money to be a Gold Member on swom, is to EARN money, WHILE you network.

So, the ability to “EARN MONEY on SWOM” – must be evaluated by any Real Business Leader. Many have chosen to downgrade to blue, and leave the site. I actually chose to raise the question, and Swom has now attempted to Silence me.

All of these are signs, that this company is on the brink of going OUT Of business.

Their business model, just is not as SOUND as it should have been; and it’s mostly due to the changes they make, which keep making the opportunity worse; instead of better.

With fewer people upgrading to Gold, and with so many people downgrading to Blue, the ‘value of the points’ people rack up on SWOM has gone down.

Would any smart investor continue to put money into a product who’s value is Decreasing? Certainly not.

Yet there are people on Swom, who have fallen in love with the company, and are blindly going to go down with the ship; This happens in business; and a guy by the name of John Costino, actually referred to people like this as ‘Cheerleaders’ – people who refuse to look at another company or idea, simply because they don’t want to admit that the ship they are on, is sinking.

These turn of events sadden me.

With so many skeptical people in the world today, nothing is worse than having to Admit that a Ship You promoted, is Sinking; the hope always is that I am talking to people who have at least somewhat reasonable expectations, who understand that ships (in business) sink all the time.

The AVERAGE company goes OUT OF BUSINESS within their first 5 years; It’s extremely rare for a company to make it to 10 years; So when a company that is new, does not make it, no one should be surprised; that is the RISK we all take, by joining a “new company” – when it fails, the reaction should never be “these things just dont work” – instead, it should be – ok, this didn’t work, is there another one like it, that can work? … will work? … or is working???

The answer for ME is CrazyGood.

I’m actually a big advocate of this ‘new idea’ of social networking for money. Social Networking sites are a hit! People who manage to run a successful social networking site, bring in a LOT of Money. Yet, none of these sites, are paying MONEY to the users, who helped THEM Make the money they are making.

See, a social networking site is NOTHING without the people who use those sites, to network, and socialize.

So, that is what drew me to the opportunity with SWOM, many months ago; That is what drew me to take a close look at the Aaachoo network, at YourNight, at BreezyBuzz, at WomVegas, and others like these, that promote ‘paying it’s members to use the site’

So far, all of them have been riddled with problems.

Let’s look closely at SWOM’s business model.

Join for Free, upgrade to Gold at anytime, and pay $24.95/mo
YOU earn $15 fast start bonus on people who upgrade to Gold
(this means, the company only makes $10 that month)
Then, they pay you $5/mo if that person remains Gold.
So, you need at least 5 gold members, to break even each month;
You need 6-10 Gold members to make a profit; With 10 gold members, your profit is Only $25/mo
SO to REALLY earn money with SWOM, you need to be Very Good at Sponsoring people into opportunities.

The average networker in our industry, sponsors between 3-5 people in their Career as a network marketer.

With NO multi level payout, you can see, it becomes Extremely difficult for someone to EARN Money with Swom’s business model; As more and more people see that, more and more are leaving the site.

The TopNetworkersGroup seeks to educate people first, so that they can make Wise business decisions; NEVER Marry a Company; what matters to us, are the PEOPLE we work with; that is who we are loyal to; No opportunity lasts forever, that is what the word itself means.

An Opportunity is, by definition, finite; it’s a “window of time” – All Opportunity is a window, that eventually will Close; while the Opportunity with SWOM is ‘possible’ – it’s way too difficult for the average person.

That being said, of course, I am an advocate of a person, who is average, stretching themselves, getting out of their comfort zone, and through the improvement, reaching higher heights in life; The downside of all FREE Opportunities is, they tend to attract ‘Lazy People’ who want to make lots of money, with very little effort, and especially without ‘investment’ of time, or money.

To reach the destination of Financial Freedom in business, both are required. Without Time, and Money, a person will not treat their business with enough importance, to earn what’s possible.

This is why the difficulty with SWOM makes it a ‘waste of time’ – rather than a true reward of time; yet, there is a company, that is doing it right.

That company, is Crazygood.com

In this video “What Happened to Myspace” – I explain this new social network, that has been around since August of 2010 – so it’s ‘new’ and yes, that means there is a risk, that this will not last long term. What this site needs, are people who ‘get it’ and will SHARE this opportunity and help CREATE a success story out of this awesome Idea. More comments below the video …


The differences for Crazygood vs. Swom should become obvious after watching this video. Specifically with their business model. With No Free members, your time spent referring people is rewarded immediately. It’s $1 … which is not much; but neither is the price of membership; Everyone can afford $10 per month – everyone.

Also, they have a 5 level payout; So a person could sponsor the industry average of 3-5 people, and if everyone in their network did the same, they’d still earn between $330/mo – and $3,900/mo

This kind of income earning is just not possible with SWOM.

Also, you can still build relationships with like minded people; You can still funnel people from Crazygood, into your other opportunities. If you, as serious business person are looking for a Good ‘investment’ and want to earn while you network, with social networking, Crazygood is clearly the winner.

There were/are problems with Other sites :: such As Aaachoo, which went out of business, due to never being run properly; the forced matrix aspect, attracted a lot of Lazy people who expected to make money from spillover and did not sponsor anyone at all.

With YourNight, the site was in such bad shape, for so long, that people just stopped using it; it’s not growing. It’s been undergoing a new-relaunch; we’ll see how that goes; however with people signing up for free most never upgrade;

A company that requires money to join, is always going to have an edge; because while Network Marketing has a 90% attrition rate, at least these companies are Making MONEY For each person that joins; when you invest Money into something, you value it more than you do, for something you did not pay money for.

Just think of the things we often do with gifts people GIVE us, vs. possessions we had to work hard to purchase ourselves.

So all things considered, CrazyGood is emerging as the Clear winner, as a social networking site, that will cater to everyone in the network marketing industry; as well as people in other areas of Sales and Marketing :: including anyone who just wants to earn more money than they are making right now, who simply don’t mind referring people to take a look, at what we have going on.

Here’s a Video to look around CrazyGood’s inside ::
