Brandergy – the social ” business ” network of the Future.

Posted by Chris on October 26th, 2012

I have known Vincent Wright of Brandergy – The Brandergist – for many years. Probably around 8, when I joined U.K. based network We had communicated on and off for all those years but it is only in recent months that we have actually made money together.

Vincent’s photo


Making money together changes a relationship significantly.

We have both been on our own journeys. Ones that finally  brought us back together recently. In my case one of my main journeys was seeking the answer to ” How to make money online ? “. I have made £multi-Millions starting, building up and selling ” bricks and mortar ” companies but not
( yet ) a ” Virtual ” company.

As you may know ( or you can easily find out using Google ) I am on many social networks where I have significant ( quality ) global networks. I am on Ecademy, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest and who knows how many more. I have 10’s of thousands of connections and I KNOW, LIKE and TRUST many of the people that I am connected to. There are actually a number of people around the world who I have met only in the ” virtual world ” but who I have done business with.

There is a common theme amongst all my virtual networks which derives from the fact that many people who my friends come across – as one of my friends eloquently says, are – FAKES, FLAKES, WEIRDO’s, LIARS, THIEVES and CREEPS. ( the girls have a particularly hard time with these it seems ).

Generally people say that Twitter is one of the best networks to meet people on who you can do business with ( I have certainly found that to be true ). Others would say that Linkedin is the best network ( not my top network but I can understand what people mean ).

Increasingly people are looking for a quality, curated, business network.

I did not think that that network would be Brandergy but it turned out to be the case. I think this is because everybody in the Brandergy network is someone that Vincent knows. He either met them somewhere else himself and invited them into Brandergy or someone he knows recommended them to Brandergy. He knows what they do and what they are looking for.

He has some 60,000 email addresses and a network that extends to 100’s of thousands of people. These people are all around the world.

Joining Brandergy is FREE and taking advantage of Vincent’s prospect identification and personal introduction services costs only a few 100 dollars.

I can only say that the Return on Investment of joining Vincent’s network is incredible. A few 100 dollars invested have brought in tens of thousands of dollars in business. I cannot think of anywhere where this level of return can be achieved.

Through mailshots, personal introductions, skype phone calls and branding on the Brandergy website I have met and done business with many people that I otherwise would not have known.

It is difficult to decide where to put your marketing and promotional dollars these days. I recommend that you talk to Vincent about what return he can give you for a modest outlay – I think you will be AMAZED with the results.

Six Figure Mentors Staffordshire


Internet Business Opportunity – Lichfield,Tamworth,Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Burton on Trent, Derby.

Hello and welcome to my Six Figure Mentors website. The Six Figure Mentors are a team of people who work with Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek
( two of the most successful Internet Marketers in the world )  to help individuals and businesses understand how to actually get visitors, leads, orders and cash using Internet Marketing.

I became a Six Figure Mentor after researching for many years the most effective way to do business online. I used various Internet Marketing methods, systems and software to help my clients and the businesses that I invested in but it was only when I found the Six Figure Mentors that I really felt that I had the right system for entrepreneurs, small and medium sized businesses.

What you will learn from the Six Figure Mentors community will change your perspective and your life. Many Six Figure Mentors are experienced Internet Marketers who could not, until they met Stuart, put all the pieces of the jigsaw together in a way that consistently produced income for themselves and their clients. They are special people because they were open minded enough to realise that there was a better and more effective way of working.

Read on and start your journey toward achieving a Six Figure Income………..

P.S. If you already KNOW ME, LIKE ME and TRUST ME and you want to get straight on with it go HERE

“Don’t Waste Another Minute On Useless Internet Business Opportunity Advice!”

On This Page, We’re Going To Show You How To Quickly and Easily Get Started Earning Money from a fast growing profitable market…

…WITHOUT, Any previous training, knowledge or even your own products to sell!


Are you still struggling to get started earning money online?

Are you desperate — and ready to give up — because no matter what you try, or how hard you work to earn more money, you still take two GIANT steps backward for every step forward?

Imagine how much better your life would be if you were finally able to enjoy the same financial freedom other entrepreneurs are having. Or wake up in the morning knowing you NEVER had to worry about paying the rent or the utility bills ever again.

Even better, think what it would be like to no longer feel like a failure, just because you can’t seem to get the momentum to start earning money, no matter what you try.

Sound like a dream? It doesn’t have to be…

Let us help you quickly and easily get started with a plan that likely defies everything you currently THINK you know about online businesses!


And you don’t have to give up your current job just yet and here’s exactly why

Any business starting requires a few things to get started, seed money, products and customers…


Seed money – my best advice is to start from the ground up, you can work part time whilst starting your online business, this will give you the seed money that is needed to get things started…And it doesn’t have to be long till you go full time online!

Products – This opportunity will give you all you ever need to start earning money…

It can’t get any simpler than this…

All you have to do is refer people who want to learn how to build a legitimate, profitable and recession proof online business.

There is a fantastic earning potential, you earn up to $1000 per sale and you can literally start earning as you are learning to become a successful Internet entrepreneur yourself!

Customers – We’ll train you to find leads and convert them into customers and raving fans!



  • How to generate as many leads as you can shake a stick at using your very own ready-made personal website
  • No boss, no time keeping –You run your own business from day one exactly how you want
  • Absolutely no tie in or contract – Stay as long as you want (when you start getting loads of commissions, I’m sure you’ll stay ;-)
  • Comprehensive coaching and guidance from experts who earn 7 figures!
  • Ongoing live support and training – You’ll never be on your own.
  • You receive up to 100% commissions – No middle person taking 90% of your hard earned money.
  • No previous experience required – All the training you’ll ever need in one place


For every referral you introduce you will get paid a referral fee (affiliate commission) this could be anything from $10 – $1000 per sale! Where else can you get this sort of commission?



You could work from anywhere in the world (all I use is my laptop) and the best part is you don’t have to close any sales yourself, that is handled by professional business consultants or automated sales systems using the latest technology. Any referrals received from you will be passed directly to the consultants to begin working the lead immediately, you just have to send the inquiries and the rest is handled for you!


The current recessionary climate and increasing unemployment levels mean millions of people are rapidly waking up to the fact that they need to take control of their future.

Because this company effectively teaches people how to start a profitable online business with low overheads, more and more people are turning to them for guidance on how to get started online.

This ever increasing demand means that, whether there’s a recession or a booming economy, it’s always a profitable time to be involved in the Internet entrepreneur and home business seeking market.



There are a few steps that you can take (starting right now) to put yourself in a position to make money online selling something to people who are searching for it.

Sounds simple?

YES of course it is…

I am going to grant you access to a great FREE online marketing course that thousands of people use to get started. The course is called “The SFM Marketing Bootcamp” and is completely and utterly free. All I need is your name and email address so I can send you instant access to the first video immediately.

Aida Kagoya of Support the African Child uses the Internet to reach out to the world

Posted by Chris on October 20th, 2012

I have never been to Jinja, Uganda where Aida lives but of course we can Google it and look at it on maps. ( See short History at the end of this article NB the connection between the U.K. and India ) I do know that it is to the North West of Lake Victoria at the source of the Nile. I first came across Aida on Facebook. Now many of you reading this will have been approached by numerous people from Africa and other countries on Facebook and your first reaction is ” This is probably not who they say they are ” and ” They are going to rip me off or at the very least ask for money ” . With Aida it was different. She had some mutual friends and this helped and when she messaged she was calm and friendly and not pushy.




After chatting for some time on Facebook she let me know that she wanted to get a website established for Support the African Child and would I help ??? I said that I would do my best and kept her in mind when I was talking to various business connections that I had.

There are 3 places where Aida can access the Internet – her mobile phone, the local Internet Cafe and her University. Using these locations, mobile phone and computers, her intelligence and belief that God would provide a solution to the needs of the African Children that she supported, Aida went onto the Internet and started a journey that I think will one day lead to her being one of the most experienced social media marketers in Central Africa.




Aida’s  Picture



The vision I have is of Aida using her mobile phone when at home and the computer at her University when she is there and the Internet Cafe when she is not. Often she said to me that she needed to get to the Internet Cafe or University in order to provide certain information.




When we first chatted I explained to her the Internet Marketing Ecosystem, which was probably a bit ambitious but she understood most of it by getting her to draw a picture on a piece of A4 paper of a WordPress web/blogsite at the centre, a Twylah page alongside and surrounded by various social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. I explained how you would post on the WordPress website and then distribute that post around the social networks sites. This ensures maximum awareness and also helps to drive the website to the top of Google for selected keywords and phrases.

I duly talked to a number of contacts and Costa Rica Headquartered BeachCherry Software Corporation, headed by Vick Gandhi, volunteered to provide the website ( this was very kind of them ). BeachCherry have wide – ranging software development skills which include WordPress web/blogsite design. Aida provided Headings and Content in Microsoft Word. BeachCherry’s WordPress designer in India did an amazing job of building a WordPress website that captured the theme of STAC perfectly despite having no design guidance at all  ( I have actually seen this done by BeachCherry a number of times ).

So this website was being built across the globe with me co-ordinating from the U.K., Aida and STAC, being the customer, in Uganda and Vick and some of his team being based in Costa Rica – the others in India. Sounds like a recipe for disaster ???? Not if you are BeachCherry Corporation who took the whole thing in their stride !! We organised a domain using GoDaddy ( ) and hosting with Wiser Hosting in Devon, England.

Initially the website was built on the website and then it was moved across to it’s own domain.

Aida was able to access the website while it was being developed and she sent in regular check lists of things to be done which were actioned by BeachCherry developers.

Mainly the communication was by Facebook Message and email. Aida had to report progress to her Board Members and Executive Committee.

The website has only just gone live and there is much work to be done but Aida has provided the Testimonial below:


Aida’s Testimonial

Thank you very much for your kindness and love that has brought
abundant joy and hope in the world’s neglected and disadvantaged
children more so in Uganda. Words can neither say it all nor action
express my gratefulness because at this point I know that you are
aware of the challenges we face at Support the African Child (STAC) but
you chose to stand in and go all way with us. I do not take you for
granted but live to cherish and treasure every MINUTE you take to
think about us and consider us.

From my very first contact with BeachCherry to the final website
launch, I found they provided an outstanding service and were an excellent
company to work with. The process, from contacting you to receive the
information to be posted, proposed concept designs through
finalization of design and the launch of the website was TIMELY and
EFFICIENT. Every question was answered quickly and they went above and
beyond what was asked of them.The website and logo they designed for
STAC is exactly what we want and their service made every step of the
process simple.


The support and help that was given to STAC is first class,and I am
thankful to have such a great relationship with Chris Windley ( U.K. BeachCherry Strategy Advisor )  and Vick
Gandhi (CEO BeachCherry). We look forward to the continued
relationship between STAC and BeachCherry and wish to thank you for a
job well done.
Thank you for your willingness to help STAC make a difference in the
lives of these children and I would not hesitate to recommend BeachCherry
to anyone looking for a professional website design

CEO, Support The African Child.

History of Jinja ( extract from Wikepedia,_Uganda )

Before 1906, Jinja was a fishing village that benefited from being located on long-distance trade routes. The origin of the name “Jinja” comes from the language of the two peoples (the Baganda and the Basoga) that lived on either side of the River Nile in the area. In both languages “Jinja” means “Rock”. In most of Africa, rivers like the Nile hindered migration, this explains the ethnic boundaries along the Nile as one moves north from the river’s source on the northern shores of Lake Victoria.

However the area around Jinja was one place where the river could be breached due to the large rocks near the Ripon Falls. Here, on either bank of the river, were large flat rocks where small boats could be launched to cross the river. These rock formations were also accredited with providing a natural moderator for the water flow out of Lake Victoria. For the original local inhabitants, the location was a crossing point, for trade, migration and as a fishing post.

This might explain why, despite this barrier, the two tribes have very similar languages, and the more powerful Baganda had an enormous influence on the Basoga. The area was called the ‘Place of Rocks’ or ‘The Place of Flat Rocks’. The word for stones or rocks in the language of the Baganda is ‘Ejjinja (Plural Amayinja), and in the Basoga dialect this became Edinda. The British used this reference to name the town they established – “Jinja”

In 1954,with the building of the Owen Falls Dam, (later renamed Nalubaale Power Station, the Ripon Falls were submerged. Most of the ‘Flat Rocks’ that gave the area its name disappeared under water as well. However a description of what the area looked like can be found in the notes of John Hanning Speke, the first European to lay eyes on the Source of the Nile:

“Though beautiful, the scene was not exactly what I expected, for the broad surface of the lake was shut out from view by a spur of hill, and the falls, about twelve feet deep and four to five hundred feet broad, were broken by rocks; still it was a sight that attracted one to it for hours. The roar of the waters, the thousands of passenger fish leaping at the falls with all their might, the fishermen coming out in boats, and taking post on all the rocks with rod and hook, hippopotami and crocodiles lying sleepily on the water, the ferry at work above the falls, and cattle driven down to drink at the margin of the lake, made in all, with the pretty nature of the country—small grassy-topped hills, with trees in the intervening valleys and on the lower slopes—as interesting a picture as one could wish to see.”[2]

Cotton-packing, nearby sugar estates, and railway access all enabled Jinja to grow in size. By 1906 a street pattern had been laid out, and Indian traders moved in starting around 1910. The Indians were Catholic Christians and English-speaking, and originated in the former Portuguese colony of Goa on the west coast of India.

The town was founded in 1907 by the British, as an administrative centre for the Provincial Government Headquarters for Busoga region. This was around the time that Lake Victoria’s importance in transport rose due to the Uganda Railway linking Kisumu, a Kenyan town on the lake, with Mombasa on the Indian Ocean, 900 miles (1,400 km) away. British-American Tobacco Uganda (BATU) established a tobacco processing factory in Jinja in 1928.


Community makes Six Figure Mentors stand out from the rest

Posted by Chris on October 2nd, 2012

I have been and am, a member of many online communities ( too many too mention ! ) but the Six Figure Mentors stands out above even the best. I know that at the moment the Six Figure Mentors team are struggling to keep up with the number of people joining – globally. Stuart Ross is flying all around the world establishing new communities.

I have said it before but I think that it is worth repeating that my objective has been to find an Internet Marketing System that REALLY generates leads and orders. People who follow me know that I am a massive HubSpot fan and that I developed the Internet Marketing Ecosystem to help my clients improve their Internet Presence, ability to rank for selected keywords and phrases and rate of conversion from visitor to customer. HubSpot’s mantra is ” Get Found, Convert, Analyse ” one of Stuart’s mantra’s is ” Build a List, Sell something and sell something else ” – see that sort of simple, direct objective appeals to me !!

When you review the best digital marketers and web and blogsites in the world you see that  Listbuilding ( the collection of an opted in list of email addresses ) is key as is the nurturing and collection of that list. An email list always has a value but some are more valuable than others.

I was also on the email list !!! ( Actually I was on a couple !! )

I got  autoresponder emails – one a day – from Stuart. I also got emails from Martyn Hickey.

There was a lot of information to take in but it was all good.

After some time in the Six Figure Mentors Community Website ( access requires a monthly subscription ) Martyn Hickey introduced me to Stuart Chalmers – an Ordinary but very special guy.

I just want to feature Stuart’s personal website here

by way of a thank you for everything that he has done to help.

Chris Windley’s Daily Mail Interview on Digital Death

Posted by Chris on October 2nd, 2012

Chris Windley, Digital Marketing Expert and Managing Partner at the Silicon Crossroads Technopolis in Lichfield, Staffordshire spoke to the Daily Mail about Digital Death and why he is waiting for the official launch of My Digital Executor and NOT death !!

The impact of a Digital Death is entirely dependent on how involved someone is in the digital world and what the consequences of disconnection or interruption to their system would be. There are people who have maybe, a Linkedin or a Facebook account and use the Internet for browsing and for email. There are 2 or 3 passwords and usernames involved in that.

Now imagine that you were Stuart Ross ( see below ) , Founder of the Six Figure Mentors and someone who earns $100’s of thousands  a month through the Internet

Find Stuart at :

using various tools such as web and blogsites, social media sites, Google pay per Click, Facebook adverts, emailing lists, autoresponders etc etc etc. I don’t know how many usernames and passwords he has but it’s a lot !! I would say that nobody would understand  how Stuart made his money except that he has been discussing and sharing his techniques with his ” inner circle ” and with Six Figure Mentor members so there are actually quite a few people now who understand what he is doing. Previously only Stuart’s mentors would have understood what he is doing – his parents and brothers and sisters certainly don’t !!

There is a sort of no-man’s land between the casual user and a ” proper ” Internet based business. People that run eBay shops or small ecommerce sites; bloggers with lots of followers and advertising revenues being generated from their sites. It is highly unlikely that anyone un other than them understand how the system works.

Typically the sites that they use eBay, Facebook, PayPal, Google etc etc are based in the U.S. and they have their own views on what happens when someone dies.

When a Facebook user dies anyone ( yes anyone !! ) can shut down the account given that they have proof of death. So, imagine this – Stuart

( God forbid ) dies and the news gets around. One of his competitors hears about this, knows that a lot of Stuart’s income is dependent on Facebook ( adverts ) , provides proof of death to Facebook and gets the account shut down. Probably nobody ( the relatives or the lawyers involved ) has any conception that this is an important part of the income generating system.

What redress does the estate have against the person who shut it down or Facebook ?? None !!

Graham Ross ( below ), Founder of My Digital Executor, decided that this was just unacceptable.

Here’s what Graham says on his website ……

Have you ever worried about what would happen to your email, tweets, blogs, domains,  affiliate sales accounts, created/collected music, photographs, websites, designs, virtual world items, online account balances, online revenue streams and even operational online businesses when you log off for that final time? Probably be lost forever or, worse,  be taken over by those unauthorised by you, putting your money, data and creative property at risk. Read articles on the problem from The New York Times and The Guardian.

Let us put your mind at rest

Our straight forward and simple protocol ensures that your accounts and assets will be handled fully in accordance with your wishes. We provide a form on which you set out, and update, your wishes. We then refer you to a solicitor who will help you ensure those wishes are legally honoured (you are not committed to any further costs beyond your membership of this service).

Writing an informal note of your wishes has no effect

You may think that informally appointing someone to take over a digital asset on your death is the answer but it will have no legal effect. Equally of no legal effect are services that store your passwords and last wishes like and Legacy Locker specifically warns by email  those you seek to appoint that ‘it is not legally binding’ because ‘ownership of any electronic rights related to the internet such as intellectual property, domain names, or marketing affiliation agreements, cannot be granted or transferred through Legacy Locker’.  This is because the law dictates who is entitled to your assets, including your digitalassets, and the only way to impose your wish above the law is through a Will, or Codicil to a Will. A friend who acts, albeit innocently, on your informal wishes can be sued by the next of kin entitled to your estate. We  ensure you are able to make such wishes binding and effective after you pass away.

We protect your passwords but do not hold them

Whilst we ensure your estate has lawful and effective access to your online accounts after your death, we do not hold your passwords.

What if I just ignore the problem

If you want to learn about the problems with what would happen on your death with some of the more popular internet services, then see our page called ‘How Websites Deal With Your Death’.

Silicon Crossroads Technopolis helps HubSpot inbound to Ireland.

Posted by Chris on October 1st, 2012

The Silicon Crossroads Technopolis based in Lichfield, Staffordshire, England has helped Inbound Marketing Megastars HubSpot decide on Dublin,Ireland as the location for their European Headquarters. The official announcement from Hubspot is here. Chris Windley, Managing Partner of the Silicon Crossroads Technopolis and of the Silicon Crossroads V.C.T. ( Just voted #100 of 1000 Tech. Investors globally by PeekIndex – full story here ) said ” Some time ago HubSpot asked our opinion on where they should base their European Headquarters – we highlighted as possibilities London, Lichfield itself  and Dublin, Ireland.”

The story of that early conversation with HubSpot is here . ” Whilst we would have been proud to welcome HubSpot to Lichfield and perhaps even the Technopolis itself, we are delighted that HubSpot decided on one of our recommendations. ” Chris said.

As highlighted in our early conversation above there are some compelling reasons why U.S. companies should base themselves in Dublin, Ireland . In all likelihood this will be followed by sales offices in Benelux and London. This is a well worn path that e.g. Google, Twitter and Facebook have followed.

You have to admire the Irish and Irish ( Inward Development Agency ) I.D.A. for the way that they have positioned ” brand Ireland ” and for the way that they handled this opportunity. There are many places where HubSpot could have based it’s European Headquarters but it chose Dublin, Ireland.

Chris said ” I have contacts within the Irish I.D.A. and they have a Boston office which has been communicating with HubSpot for a number of years . The Boston team of the Irish I.D.A. obviously did a good job in presenting the case to HubSpot “.

To me this just emphasises what we have said elsewhere – there is an unstoppable flow of fully funded companies coming from the U.S. to Europe and other countries. This is particularly true of High Tech and software companies.

4 years ago HubSpot was a small Boston based software startup. Today it is one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in the world. Probably second only to

When HubSpot received further funding earlier on in the year and investment from e.g. Google and Salesforce it was almost inevitable that they would open a European Headquarters soon. Around 300 companies in Europe are HubSpot customers but this is not enough. HubSpot needed a European base to compete against WordPress based competitors and new startup – The Six Figure Mentors – which is rapidly expanding across the globe from the U.K.
