And The Winners Are…

Congratulations to our Referral Contest Winners!

We surpassed the 1000 member mark this weekend and I’m proud to show you the results:


1st Place: $175 Kenneth Kraakstad

2nd Place: $150 Lars Mikuta

3rd Place: $100 Sherri Kirklin

4th Place: $50 Tony Tezak

5th Place: $25 Jerry Iannucci

Refer Member #111: Win 1 Login Ad + 1 Solo Ads
#111 Angel Valenciano referred by Jerry Iannucci

Refer Member #222: Win 2 Login Ad + 2 Solo Ads
#222 Terry Phong referred by Lisa McCormick

Refer Member #333: Win 3 Login Ad + 3 Solo Ads
#333 Chris Caras referred by Tony Tezak

Refer Member #444: Win 4 Login Ad + 4 Solo Ads
#444 Mark Kirklin referred by Sherri Kirklin

Refer Member #555: Win 5 Login Ad + 5 Solo Ads
#555 Anne Rohtung referred by Admin

I awarded the solos and login ads to Jerry Iannucci and also to his referral Angel Valenciano
earlier in the contest and did the same for Lisa and Terry Phong.
Lisa wasn’t supposed to be included in the contest (and wasn’t for the money part) but I
goofed and gave her the ads before I thought about it.
I will be awarding the other ads winners later today. The referral contest was to be for the
people who were the referrers, but I decided to award the referrals also.

The monetary awards will be paid on or before 03/15/2011.

Be looking for a mini-contest to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Congratulations and a HUGE Thank You for helping us achieve this goal.

The Finish Line is In Sight

Good MORNING JV Partners!

Well the race is almost over or has it just begun?

Take a look at the current standings in the Referral Contest…

I have a feeling this is where the competitive spirit really kicks in!

As you can see we are almost at the end of this contest and we wouldn’t have come this far without each and every one of you. Thanks so much for all the promotion you’ve done. Some of you have made a bit of cash here and we have too, so that’s a good thing!

We’ve been learning a lot about the trials and tribulations of hosting issues, members not confirming emails, banner size issues and many other administrative duties. It’s been interesting to say the least! Truthfully, we love it and look forward to building this site to a massive resource for you and your referrals for many years to come.

As I mentioned earlier, you’ll continue to see tweaks and changes, updates and improvements so that the site stays fresh.

So, bring us your advertising and we’ll bring you results!

Thanks again and have a great weekend!

Referral Contest Status

Lisa and I just want to give you a quick update on the status of the referral contest.

Here’s a screenshot from just a few minutes ago (approx 4 p.m. CST, 02/22/2011)…

As you can see, Kenneth has jumped ahead of Sherri, with Lars nipping at her heels. Tony and Jerry follow closely behind.

What does all this mean? Well, it means you need to make a big push right now. It ain’t over till the fat lady sings as they say, so until you hear me practicing my vocal scales, keep promoting!! It’s still an open race and you could be a big winner!

I’ve added a video to the members/index.php page on how to add banner advertising. And we will continue to tweak here and there to continually add value so that Ultimate Profit List will sustain itself in the years to come.

Thanks to everyone who has been promoting and helping to build our membership here at Ultimate Profit List. Your support means the world to Lisa and me.

New Update on Referral Contest

Good morning JV Ultimate members!

I’ve been so busy with things that I’ve been a bit remiss at keeping you updated here. Please accept my sincere apologies.

Since this is Lisa’s and my first launch, we feel like things have been going pretty well. The site is growing, although sign-ups have slowed somewhat. I think that is pretty normal. There are many of you who have really ROCKED this. We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.

Here’s a screen shot of the referral contest page and member count from today.

Congrats to all who are on the top of the leader board and those who are striving to reach the top. The contest ends when we have 1000 verified members. So, there’s still plenty of time for this board to change. (Although Sherri Kirklin came on strong at the beginning and has not let go of her lead for a second.) I guess the word here is that all of you who are program owners should really look at Sherri with awe! She is amazing. (She’s a Texas gal, ya know!)

Alrighty then… let’s all go promote, promote, promote!!!

System Mailer and Solo Ads ACTIVATED!

Congratulations to each and every one of US!!

We now have OVER 500 VERIFIED members. The system mailer and solo ads have been activated!

Things seem to be going pretty well, thanks to the support of all of you. Lisa and I can’t totally express the gratitude we feel for the tips, the support, the advertising…. everything you’ve done to get Ultimate Profit List off to a great start.

The race is not over yet though! The contest ends when we reach 1000 verified members. We’re over the hump, headed to the finish line but still a ways to go. So, we’ll keep promoting and hope you will remember to do the same. We know that you have your own sites to promote as well.

If you were invited to be a JV Partner or asked to be included, please be sure that you have read all the updates and are doing your part to grow Ultimate Profit List. As we continue to grow, and as we continue to expand our virtual real estate, your support and friendship will be rewarded in spades. We’ll scratch each others backs. We know, as Zig has oft been quoted….we can have everything we want in life if we just help enough other people get what they want. Basically, it’s a matter of living by the Golden Rule.

Just because they sound like cliches, doesn’t mean they aren’t applicable! Seriously, thank you! Now let’s go to work!

Contest Is Heating Up!

It has been an exciting 24plus hours since Ultimate Profit List launched.

I want to say once again how much Lisa and I appreciate each and every one of you for your support. There’s no way we can ever express our gratitude to you.

Now, let me give you a heads up on where we are in the contest.

At this time, we have 317 verified members. Here are the current standings:

Sherri Kirklin 76
Tony Tezak 30
Jerry Iannucci 28
Paul Kinder 26
Chris Rohrer 14
Lisa McCormick 14
Chase Swift 12
Kenneth Kraakstad 10
Niranjan Ranade 9
Bradley Matthews 8
Sunny Suggs 7
Arnold Lindstrom 6
Carol Cash 5
Jeani Morrison 5
Tom L. Shafer 1
Patty Stovall 1
Arnljot Blindheim 1
Tony Cross 1
Robert Maturo 1
Neil Grippa 1
Brent Bertsch 1

So, everyone is really doing a great job. It is our goal to have a very active, responsive membership. And with your help in getting the word out, we’ll have that.

Jerry Iannucci referred Member #111 (Angel Valenciano) and they were both rewarded 1 login and 1 solo ad.
Lisa McCormick referred Member #222 (Terry Phong) and they were both rewarded 2 logins and 2 solo ads.

More later!!

Our Heads Are SPINNING!

WOW! Things are really rocking here at Ultimate Profit List.

A HUGE thank you to all the JV Partners who have been promoting UPL today.

For those of you who have not yet gotten your promo email out…
you’re falling behind!

Sherri Kirklin has a comfortable lead at the top of the UPL leaderboard with 42 verified members.
Paul Kinder is not too far behind…. 15 members.
Jerry and Tony are in easy reach of Paul with 13 and 12 sign-ups, respectively.

However, Jerry referred member 111, so he wins 1 Login and 1 Solo Ad.

Remember, the SOLO’s will be activated upon 500 verified members. I just knew that was going to be noonish today,
but it didn’t happen quite that soon. I know we have a lot of competition but I fully expect to reach that goal in short order.

Be sure to let us know through the support ticket on the site if you see any problems. I know there was an issue with the
tweets, but I am working on those. I think all but #3 are working okay.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter. http://twitter.com/ultimate_profit.
We also have a page on facebook. Just do a search for Ultimate Profit List. Please take just a moment to “like” us.

So… that’s all for now. I’ll keep you posted on the rankings.

Nina & Lisa

By The Time I Get To Phoenix…

Old Glen Campbell song. I’m not really going to Phoenix, although it may be warmer there, so that’s a consideration.

As I was saying… By the time… you get this, launch time will be official.

So, let’s all get busy, get our ads out, bring in lots of members for UPL and make $$$$$

Thanks again!!!

It’s OPEN!

I decided to reset the index.php page to the regular sign in and that opens the site. So, we are ready for 11ish Central time to get here!

I want to be sure to remind you to change your password from the assigned one to a personalized password. Make sure your PayPal account is in there. In order to get paid by your signups instantly, you MUST have a business or premier account. PayPal rules, not mine. Most of you are owners so you already know this, but just a reminder to those who might not. I KNOW you want those Instant Commissions, so go do what you need to in order to be paid.

Please, if you have gifts, add them. And ADD your Ads: text links, banners, etc. We can’t have a great advertising site if there are no ads!

Remember, too, that as JV Partners (JV Ultimate), your link will rotate in the “recommended site of the day” and also upon logout. I do not know what you want in there unless you give it to me. So, please let me know so I can add your link.

Okay, no promotion until 11:11 a.m. CST, but then… GO FOR IT!

As always, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Sorry, was just trying out my Hank Williams Jr impersonation. Did it work?

Actually, what I want to know is “Are you ready for some PROFIT?” I hope so, because we launch Ultimate Profit List tomorrow at 11:11a.m. CST.

Everything is in place, as far as I can tell.

Thanks to Ken Fickas for helping me yesterday to figure out that what I thought was a glitch was really just me not understanding something. Ken has been a real help to me in making sure that my TrafficWave autoresponder was properly integrated. Especially since other programmers said it couldn’t be done. HA! Take THAT!

Also a big thanks to Tony Tezak for his advice on several aspects of this launch, including this blog, and yesterday for finding what really was a glitch. I appreciate him finding this so I could fix it before we launch.

And of course, a HUGE thank you to all of you for being JV Partners! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Nina & Lisa

P.S. Remember to update your PayPal address, put your gifts in and set up your advertising.

I will open the site at 9:00a.m. tomorrow. Official launch is 11:11a.m. CST.

Remember, the mailer/solos will not be available until we reach 500 verified members, so I’m looking at noonish for that to happen! Get busy!
