I have written two reports designed to help people expand their influence and reach new people.  You are welcome to either or both of them.

The first report is designed for church or charity leadership.  If you are in leadership or involved in some way in promoting a church or charity then please help yourself to this e-book:

Increasing Effective Ministry.

The second report is designed for business people.  It doesn't matter if you operate a home business, a network marking type of business or a traditional "brick and Mortar" business, you will find this e-book helpful:

Running With The Giants.

I trust you will find them beneficial in your life.


Power Lead System

 If you have signed up for the Power Lead System, you will discover that they have short videos on almost every page as well as a complete training section.  Although it can seem overwhelming at the beginning, you will soon be doing everything you want to do quickly.  Below are just some instructions on how to do the basic things you will need to do in order to get up and running.  You can, of course, email me if you have any questions.

To purchase a domain name within the PLS system:

This is the first thing to do as you will need a new domain name to work within your PLS system.  This is the only additional cost [sold at cost currently for $12.97 a year].  Often you will be able to get a domain name by putting "with" in front.  For example, .withPastorBob.com or .withChristianFellowship.com.  If you want to check to see if your desired Domain name is available you can go to Whois.net and check it out.  If it is available DO NOT buy it there.  Come back to your back office and follow the steps below.

1.  Log into your account.

2.  Click on the "Add Domain" button on the Getting Started page.  Just follow it though.

How To Create A Lead Capture Page
[A Lead Capture page is where you will send people to get them on your list.  There are many options and things you can do with this if you have time to experiment.  Below are basic steps.]

1.  Log into your account.

2.  Go to the Capture Leads section.

3.  Click on Lead Capture Pages YOU Created.

4.  Choose the With Custom Template and That Uses An Opt-In Form.

5.  You are now on a page where you can choose templates.  Go to the one which says "Dynamic Video Lead Capture Pages" and click on it.

6.  Click on the arrow beside the "Show me this Type of Template" and choose the "Christian" category.

7.  You now have a choice of 10 templates.  Choose whichever one you like.  

8.  This page may look intimidating, but it is quite simple just taking it one step at a time.

    Step One - First Line- enter what you want to name your page.  This is the name that will show up in your backoffice so give it a descriptive name.  For example, I am going to assume that we will use this page for the general membership signup.  So let's call it General Membership.
    -Second Line- This is what will show at the top of the browser when someone visits this page so in our example lets call it General Membership Signup.

    Step Two- is where you would choose which autoresponder campaign you want them to receive.  Since we don't have one yet, we will leave it at the Do Not Send Autoresponder setting.

    Step Three- is where you select the URL for the page.  If you have already purchased your domain name just add the subdomain [beginning part].  For example, if your domain was www.forYourglory.com you could name this page: membership.forYourglory.com.  If you don't have a domain name yet just leave it at Do Not Assign A Domain At This Time.

    Step Four- is where you want them to go after they enter their name and email on this page.  If you have a church website then you can enter that address in the final line, if you want them to go to a different page simply enter or select that URL.

9.  Click on the Save Changes button.  [You can always come back and edit later.]

10.  Click on any of the text you want to change.  A window will pop up and you can type what you want it to say.

 11.  When you are done click on the Set Background button on the top of the page.

12.  This is where you can change the background color or leave it as it is.  If you make a change, be sure to save it before moving on.

13.  Next click on Select Video Location.   If you want a video on your page you can select a pre-made one from your PLS system or you can select one on You-Tube - your own or someone elses.  If you don't want a video, select I Want To Use A Video From Another Site, leave the box empty and save the changes.

14.  Review your page.

15.  If you like it, you're done!  If not you can go back to any stage and make changes.

Setting Up An Autoresponder

[This is where you can set up a series of emails for training, teaching or whatever your needs are.]
1.  Log in to your backoffice.


2.  Go to Email/Voice/Text then Email and select View/Edit Campaigns.

3.  Scroll down until you see Create A New Campaign and click on it.

4.  A popup will appear asking you to name to campaign.  Type in a name that identifies the type of people you will want to send these emails to: single moms, fathers, deacons, etc.  Remember you can have as many of these campaigns as you want.  After typing in the name, click Save Campaign.

5.  Click on: Click Here To Choose A Different Design.  

6.  By the Template Category choose Christian and then select the template that you like and click submit.  Every email in this campaign will now have this template.  [It is possible to customize your own template with your own design/church logo, but we are keeping this simple.]

7.  Select Add A New Email To This Campaign.

8.  A popup will appear asking you to enter the subject of this email.  This is what will appear in the subscriber's email box.  You need to make it interesting so they will click on it and open your email.   When you are done click Add This Email.

9.  Now you see your email in the list.  Click on View/Edit.  This opens up the page where you will write your email.

10.  On the top left of the page you see Days To Delay.  Since this is the first email you probably want to leave it at 0.  That means the person will be sent this email as soon as they sign up on your Lead Capture Page.  On the second email, you could choose 1 if you want the second to be send the day after the first or 7 if you want it sent a week later or any number you choose.  For each email you add, choose how many days after the person signed up that you want them to receive that specific email.

11.  You can also change the Subject if want to.  

12.  I highly recommend you write your email in a word processor and then simply copy and paste it onto this page.  Just highlight the Add Text Here and paste your email.  If you have any links in your email, go through at add them.  

13.  You may have noticed your first name in the previous email.  This is easy to add wherever you like in the email.  Place your cursor in the email where you want the First Name to appear.  Then go to Place A Variable In Your Email and select Recipient's First Name.   You will see this code appear in your email:  {%FirstName%}.  That tells the program to place the person's first name there.  You can also copy this code and place it in the Subject if you want their name to appear there.  NOTE: in order for this to work you must have collected the person's first name on your lead capture page.

14.  When you are finished go up to the top and click Save Changes.

15.  You always want to check out the email before you sent it to anyone else so click the Send Now button.  This will send it to you so you can see it exactly how others will see it.  If you need to make changes just come back here and View/Edit.

16.  If all you want is one email then you are DONE!  If you want a series of emails then just repeat the above steps for each email.  Be sure to adjust the Date To Send from when the person initially signed up.

To send out an autoresponder campaign just select it when you set up your Lead Capture Page.  It will automatically be sent every time some one fills in that form.

Sending A Broadcast [One Time Message]

Now, what if you want to send out an email right away to a group of people who are already on your list.  

1.  Set up a one-email campaign as we did above.  If it is a group that you email regularly then I suggest that you simply change the email in the campaign instead of setting up a new campaign every time.  For example, you could set up a one-email campaign named Deacons.  Every time you want to email the deacons just go into the campaign and View/Edit to change the email to your new content.  

2.  Go to Email/Voice/Text then Email then click Send Campaigns.

3.  Choose the campaign you want to send and who you want to send it to.  You can choose as many groups as you like or send it to everyone.

4.  Click on Choose Date To Send

5.  Scroll down and check that you have read the Spam Policies.

6.  Click Send Emails.

Setting Up A Sales Page

Use a "sales page" if you do not want a person who fills out your Lead Capture form to go to your website but to a specific information page.  The procedure is basically the same as building a Lead Capture Page except you do not want an optin form because you already have their name and email.

1.  Log into your account.

2.  Go to the Capture Leads section.

3.  Click on Lead Capture Pages YOU Created.

4.  Choose the With Custom Template and That Does Not Use An Opt-In Form.

5.  You are now on a page where you can choose templates.  Go to the one which says "Flexible Sales Page - Most Options" and click on it.

6.  Enter your title for your reference.

7.  Enter your Bullet Points.  Bullet Points are just short statements that will appear in a list form near the bottom of your page.  You can have as many as you like or none at all.  Save.

8.   Click on the top and bottom Banners to change them.  Select a banner from the library or you can upload one of your own.

9.  Click on every text box to change it to say what you want it to say.

10.  When you are done click on the Set Background button on the top of the page.

11.  This is where you can change the background color or leave it as it is.  If you make a change, be sure to save it before moving on.

12.  Next click on Select Video Location.   If you want a video on your page you can select a pre-made one from your PLS system or you can select one on You-Tube - your own or someone elses.  If you don't want a video, select I Want To Use A Video From Another Site, leave the box empty and save the changes.

13.  Review your page.

14.  If you like it, you're done!  If not you can go back to any stage and make changes.

15.  Go back to your Lead Capture Page and choose this page as the page for people to go after they enter their info.

16.  Enter your own name and email on your Lead Capture Page to be sure everything is working correctly.  

Organize Your List Of Contacts/Names

1.  Log in to your Backoffice.

2.  Go to Contacts then Contact Manager and select Groups.

3.  Type in Group Name then click Create.  Make as many groups as you want.

4.  Go back to Contacts then Contact Manager and select Search.

5.  Type in the First Name of the person you are looking for or their email address and click search.  [Yourself if you are the only one in there at the moment.]

6.  Click on the name of the person you want to put in a group.

7.  This will bring you to their information.  Scroll down to the bottom and click on Groups.

8.  You will now see all the groups you have and a check mark will be beside all the groups they are currently in.  You can check or uncheck by any group to place them in it or remove them from it.  They can be in as many groups as you like.  Click Update Groups and you are done.

Note, if they are in more than one group and you send an email to several groups they are in, they will only receive one email.
