About Web Surfer George


Another web community? What's the difference? A Spirit of Giving...

Hello, and thank you so much for your valuable time. Imagine, if you will, a world class online community that makes millions and millions of dollars… and then gives money away to its members and the real world community. What a powerful and interesting thought. Please, keep reading…
My name is Ronald Slaton. I am a freelance photographer in Tampa Bay, Florida. Having well over 25 years of shooting experience, teaching photography within the Hillsborough County Library System, and being a published short story author, my entire life has been shaped and driven by communicating with people. Which led me to a wonderful idea... 
============================================================
Web Surfer George
There are two very different and very important things about Web Surfer George. First of all, it is an "all included" online community. Not only is it open to singers and musicians, dancers and choreographers, actors and directors, and models and photographers, it also welcomes moms, dads, teachers and students, realtors, buyers and sellers and everyone in between.

The second and most beneficial feature is that Web Surfer George is built on a foundation of giving. The average successful internet community or social network gives little more than a virtual form lettered Thank You to its members. Here is where George breaks the mold. We are designed and geared towards rewarding you for your help: 
============================================================
Paid Referrals - The site is in Invitation Only mode, and will remain there always. Each member has an Invitation Link and when someone joins through that link, the referring member earns a commission. Currently, it is 5% for Platinum members when a referred member pays to upgrade. Also, the commissions go as much as “five levels” deep, with additional levels of earnings as succeeding members join underneath. 

What the catch? Nothing. The members join and enjoy themselves. We want active members and nothing more. And we will not, and never will, harvest and sell members’ e-mail addresses, collect and sell personal information and demographics or “claim the right” to images and other member content. That is not our Business Model.
============================================================
Some of the cool things you can do as a Web Surfer George member:
  • Post Photos
  • Listen to (and upload your own) music
  • Watch (and upload your own) videos
  • Instant Message
  • Write your Blog
  • Create voting Polls
  • Post to public and private Forums
  • Create public and private Groups
  • Buy and sell through the online Classifieds
  • Earn site points for site actions
  • Use up to 5 Gb of Personal File Storage (future feature) 

============================================================
Where does all that money go?

Like all businesses, capital is all important. A web site is no different. Bills have to be paid, services secured and problems corrected. Of course, there are also management and labor costs. I can not run this on a large scale alone, and a starting workforce has to be compensated for their time, expertise and commitment. I can not expect them to take time away from other pursuits and their families, then merely offer them a warm Thank You. In short, this site can not be a dining room table "Get to it when we get to it” business. I need an Office Manager to handle the business, an executive assistant to carry out any and all tasks, a network administrator for the web site, techs for routine and emergency maintenance, updates/upgrades and fixes, a person for member services and correspondence and, of course, an accountant and an insurance agent as well as a lawyer/firm to sort out legal matters. And of course, we have our eye on an official home:

There is an update and upgrade plan, as well as a major update planned for 2019/2020.
We need to advertise and get the word out. While “word of mouth” is free and best, we do need some traditional advertising in place; print ads, posters, Google, TV, etc.

A general list is as follows:
  • Management & Labor Costs
  • Business residence leasing, utilities and insurance
  • Hosting, Maintenance, Updating and Upgrading
  • Advertisement
  • Legal Services
  • Accountant and Financial Services

Depending on your level of funding, you get membership on the site, month to month or One Year, with a referral plan of up to 5%. If enough of your friends join and upgrade, you could make back more than your investment, showing a profit to you!
$29 – Platinum membership and a 5% upgraded referral rate
=========================================================== 
Our strategy going forward
Okay, we have built an awesome web community, secured funding, tuned the site and relaunched an all-new and super powerful site! So, how do we go from asking for money to actually making money? In a nut shell, word of mouth and advertising will create a buzz which will drive up curiosity and spark visits. Who wouldn't want to join a site that has no ads and actually pays you to get your friends to join? 

Will the site become popular and well traveled? Ask yourself; "What would my friends say if I told them I belonged to a full featured online community that has no ads, doesn't harvest your information or media, has all the great features you love and pays for referrals…?" Easy guess: Where do I sign up??? Your answer: I will send you my referral link!
============================================================
Building a bridge to the Real World
As a heavy user of online services, entertainment and research, at the end of the day, I want my time to have meant or produced something valuable. At times, after long hours on the computer, I come away feeling like I totally wasted my time. I have used systems that give points, credits and level-ups. However, nothing actually transferred over to the Real World into something I could actually use. So, I decided to design Web Surfer George to not just be a great site to be on, but also make all that surfing and clicking add up to something… real.
============================================================
Still scratching your head?
Okay, so you can’t (or don’t want to) fund George at large amounts. Believe me, I totally understand that not everyone will “get it.” So, we're offering tier levels starting at $1/mo. And if you can’t do that, you can show huge support by simply joining the site and helping to increase the membership numbers.

And for all the wonderful people you know, tell them to surf on over and sign up on Web Surfer George. You will still have a personal referral link that you can e-mail, post and generally share to make money.

As stated above, the site is set to "invite only," to control the spammers, drifters and cruisers. So, the only way onto George is through the members' referral links. In short, every new member will generate cash and points for an existing member!
============================================================
So, what if we don't reach out goal?
Being a realist, I understand that is a very real possibility. If we should fall short, we will trim back our financial plans. Depending on how much we are short, we can decide what to do now and what to wait on. Physical business residence and management/Labor, as well as advertisement, will see cuts also. While we truly want to reach the goal amount, but like NASA, failure is not an option, so we will continue on even with lower funding amounts. However, we will not scale back our dedication, commitment and features to our valued members.
============================================================
It all sounds pretty cool, but what about the Network Effect...?
Okay, good point, The Network Effect states that people tend to go where their friends are. So, right now, your friends are not members of Web Surfer George, and that is a wonderful benefit for you. Why, you may ask. Well, if you are the first of your family and friends to join, then they all will join through you. Suddenly, having hundreds of friends and followers means something new... 

============================================================
In conclusion...
I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to read about my web site and this campaign. I hope and pray that you can and will assist in moving this venture into the mainstream, even if only by joining and using the services.

Be blessed in all that you do!
Ronald Slaton - Owner/Operator
