2014 Convention Announcements and Explanations
Our existing system was built on a platform that was rapidly becoming obsolete. Kody explained how our existing technology was built from the ground up on 1998 platform. He explained how over a 10 year life-span we began adding features and how the old technology became overloaded with data and information and was not equipped to handle the expansion into the future. He explained that 700 million file packets had to be migrated onto a new hi-tech server while everything was in motion.
It required millions of dollars of investment, 15 full-time programmers and 8 outside consultants.
The transition was painful but necessary. In the early days, we only required a contact manager, campaigns and some basic images, but to accommodate the ever expanding opportunities of elements, photos, and integrated photo/card sharing, a much more robust technology was required. The migration is nearly complete and we are positioned to take advantage of some crazy opportunities. To make a long story short, over the past few weeks we migrated from servers that would have probably crashed at 1 million customers to one that can comfortably handle up to 60 million customers.
624,000 active accounts
111,400 handwriting fonts
107,893,326 cards have been sent.
3,280,930 gifts have been sent.
$104,650,974 in commissions has been paid!
Initially the plans were to roll out the following enhancements at the convention and although they are very close to being ready, Kody made a tough and emotional decision to delay the hard launch in lieu of additional beta testing that should only last a few weeks.
SOC 2.0 – New Modern Look and Functionality
DEVICE APPS – Our Apps will offer a modern interface with ability to have all the basic functionality, including adding points and expense and sending gifts and gift cards. We must go where the people are and they are on their devices! In any group of people at any given time, 1/2 of everyone is on their phones or note pad/ipads. And the younger generation are using their devices to navigate the Internet space so this is an important transition. The apps are weeks away and will launch with SOC 2.0
GLOBAL API – This is a big one! This gives us the ability to INTEGRATE with other contact managers and websites. It’s also the first step towards global expansion. We will be able to interface with printers in other parts of the world and have a seamless communication with other technology. For example, let’s say a company wants to have a button on their website that will allow them to send cards from THEIR contact manager. The Global API will allow them to do it seamlessly.(More to come on this.)
SENDCERE: This is the biggest announcement in our history. With Sendcere, the world is ours. I will explain this in a moment. Sendcere is a social media platform that allows all of our customers and distributors to share their card making talents with each other and the world. If you have been on Pinterest or Instagram you may have a sense as to how big this is.
ALL THE HYPE:
HISTORY IN THE MAKING
KODY’S CALL TO ME 15 MONTHS AGO:
He explained and my first thought was, “can we really do this?”
If yes, then we will become the only one in the world. The investment was significant and into the millions. We have a shot at transforming the way network marketing is done.
ALL CHANGED EVERYTHING!!
SENDCERE CHANGES EVERYTHING!!
IT’S EXPONENTIAL VS INCREMENTAL.
IT’S MULTI-DIMENSIONAL VS LINEAR.
SOC IS LINEAR.
SENDCERE IS MULTI-DIMENSIONAL MULTI-DIRECTIONAL.
THIS REPRESENTS A QUANTUM LEAP!!
IT’S DYNAMIC VS STATIC!
IN TERMS OF REACH, WHICH IS MORE POWERFUL, TEXTING OR FACEBOOK?
CONSIDER THAT UP UNTIL NOW, SENDOUTCARDS IS LIKE TEXTING!
IF SENDOUTCARDS IS WORTH $100 MILLION SENDCERE IS WORTH $1 BILLION
THREE WORDS: REACH, ENGAGEMENT, ADDICTION!!
WHAT MAKES FACEBOOK AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA SO POWERFUL AND SO SUCCESSFUL?
#1 NEED TO BE CONNECTED, FEEL EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING.
#2 NEED TO SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING – WE’RE VOYEURS!
#3 NEED TO BE FAMOUS AND KNOWN!
#4 NEED TO BE VALIDATED!
#5 NEED FOR IMMEDIACY!! “I want it now!!
OUR UNIQUE ADVANTAGE:
With all the others you can:
BUT YOU CAN’T SEND IT!
WITH SENDCERE, YOU CAN LIKE IT, SHARE IT, COLLECT I, AND SEND IT!
AND YOU CAN MAKE MONEY WITH SOC!
I believe Sendcere is the biggest announcement in our history. It will allow us to do in one year what it took us 10 years to do. There are three elements of leverage in our business:
1. THE HEART – You get back what you send out, 10 fold!
2. NETWORK MARKETING – You leverage yourself through the work of others. This is your ticket to freedom. It’s about a lot of people doing a little. You get to benefit from the talents of others.
3. SOCIAL NETWORKING (Sendcere) – This is new ground in business. No company has ever launched a platform like this. It’s uniquely ours. As cliché as it sounds, in our business it’s the equivalent of what the automobile did for transportation or what the computer did for business. Sendcere MAGNIFIES 1 and 2 EXPONENTIALLY.

b. Sponsor 3 MD’s and have them activate 2 each and receive a share
My strategy is:
1. Buy a $400 Splash Pak Trio under Purchase Products – 30 accounts (Done!)
2. Activate at least 1 per day and have each person send a card and watch the 3 videos
(I did two of these today!)
3. Teach it!
I sponsored a distributor from Wellington, OH on Thursday night and taught him how to activate a SP Account. He sponsored 3 MD’s who each had their 2 activations by Saturday Night AND he got 2 preferred customers and made Manager in 4 days. He qualified for the June Pool payment AND he bought a SP Trio for $400 and plans to go for a TRIPLE DIP in June for the July payment! He said to me on Saturday (during convention), “I’m going to buy them anyway so why not buy them at a discount?!”
SENDOUTCARDS IS A NEW COMPANY AND WE ARE IN A PRE-LAUNCH. This past weekend we became a real technology company with a heart. Get ready, if you were not there, you have no idea what is coming. It’s like nothing the network marketing profession has ever experienced. We will create a new category of company that up until now didn’t exist. Get ready. In the words of Kody Bateman, “It takes an EVOLUTION to create a REVOLUTION!”
