Markethive: Bringing Universal Income For Entrepreneurs

Markethive: Bringing Universal Income For Entrepreneurs

 

The Marketive path and journey is what I believe in and support, and as such has become my driving force pertaining to everything I do at this point in time. It is a mission I support 100% that's based upon a lifelong vision of CEO and Founder, Thomas Prendergast … having been in beta testing now for the past 4 years, Markethive is now on the verge of rising up, with their primary mission being to build a UNIVERSAL INCOME which will support the efforts of entrepreneurs in building their business(es) and their dreams.

Markethive's Rising Up is Part of the New Revolution.
Our company's foundation is built upon 27 years of proven technology, merging with the blockchain. This will result in a fleet of money machines driving the basic platforms, creating a collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem and community wherein the members and subscribers will have the ability to achieve substantial, sustainable, livable incomes, not just in the short term, but for generations to come. 

Because that is what Markethive is, a true revolution for those among the rank and file, those who aspire to create and be a part of something bigger than they are, mothers and fathers and even families who struggle to turn their dreams into realities.

We are not launching an ICO, but we could. You are invited to come to our weekend webinars to find out exactly what we are doing. As of now, we currently have a total of 4 webinars scheduled: 2 on Saturdays, and 2 on Sundays, all addressing different subjects. I highly encourage you to attend, because what we are about to launch could truly contribute to you becoming very wealthy.

We are Markethive, and we will be making huge waves in the not-too-distant future.

https://www.ivocalize.net/#room/CryptoHive


Our new engineering organization with over 200 engineers is run by David Hickman, a long-time friend of one of our Markethive Founders, Douglas Yates, and this single factor is the tipping point for Markethive’s rise to prominence in the market. We have already addressed and updated many aspects of Markethive already, and as we speak, all the unfinished projects in Development are being completed and made ready to upgrade into Production. Buckle up brothers and sisters, because Markethive is about to take over the world, and predicted to truly be history in the making. I know, I am a big thinker and dreamer, always have been, always will be … but I can say with certainty that this is truly a mission and an ordained vision whose time is NOW, having personally known Thomas Prendergast and witnessing the progression and evolution that has taken place over the past 25+ years.



Thomas Prendergast, CEO and Douglas Yates, CTO will also be revealing, discussing and displaying progress on many important projects, such as our Markethive.io site and White Paper’s headway as it is being completed, our plans and projections, why we choose to fund via an ILP instead of an ICO, as well as our Infographics, videos and other presentation materials and resources focused upon the entire workings of Markethive, current systems, proposed as well as in-development systems. This is going to be a big event you should not want to miss.


See you there, and if you wish to get a FREE hands-on, no cost sneak peek, and no obligation "test drive" of the Markethive platform, you can register here and see it all from the inside. See for yourself what all the "buzz" is about:

Also, find out just how you can participate in the upcoming Airdrop and get FREE coins, and take part in our Universal Income project, where we pay generous financial incentives, bonuses and matching bonuses to those helping us to spread the news about Markethive, far and wide. Plus, as if that isn't enough, we pay people to "engage" within the system itself, literally paying participants to earn while they learn from some of the best mentors and coaches around. The education alone that is being offered is priceless, which will teach anyone determined to learn how to be an expert online marketer, with the ability to grow any type of business. Add to that the financial rewards we give to those who take advantage of the training and guidance, and it just doesn't get any better than this.

I do, however, suggest you stay closely tuned in for all the latest, as there is so much more on the horizon that is yet to be revealed.

HOW YOU CAN SUCCEED WITHOUT RECRUITING!

Now You can Succeed Without Recruiting

 

Customer Centric will be the huge disrupter this year in the MLM marketplace. We all experience "The Hopes and Dreams" in the pitch. A new stunning product, backed up by anecdotal testimony, a patented new comp plan, etc. (hype) Designed to excite (swindle) you on how many distributors you can recruit.

The best of us and the struggling, all know too well, that a distributor based organization never lasts. Because those on your leading edge, are distributors not making money. If the product is truly wholesale and can be sold at a profit in the retail markets, then many just buy and sell, but that is another facet of being "Customer Centric" and rarely happens in the current state of affairs in MLM.

I know this. I have been there. But I have also experienced Customer oriented opportunity and that was and is going to again be Trivita.

When you can join a company and make money without recruiting more distributors, then that is a company the average human can embrace and experience success. And that is exactly what Trivita did and is preparing to do again, in a way bigger way.

Customer Acquisition is not just a term I toss around lightly. I am serious about the implications it will have on the MLM industry. Once a company really launches true customer centricity, it will be a total game changer. It will drive many MLMs into bankruptcy or at least obscurity. It will be the biggest phenomena and totally change the playing field.

If you are involved in building an income via an MLM company, are you at risk? Chances are you are.  Ask yourself a few simple questions. Are you buying the product to be able to engage the opportunity? Do you have less than 50% (real) customers outside the opportunity? Are you on auto ship to receive commissions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are at risk.

Let me digress a bit here. The FTC has rules on the books and is getting serious about enforcing the customer distributor rule.

IE
Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s probably not. It could be a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money.

https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/multilevel-marketing

Kevin Thompson assesses the Herbalife FTC settlement.

Therefore if you cannot easily build a customer base, automated sample fulfillment from the back office, ability to just buy the customers the company produces with their own infomercial, based on a product retail customers want, producing at least an equal balance of customers to distributors, then that company is not only doomed, but is getting in line for the FTC to shut them down and throw the owners and leaders in jail.

Imagine how easy it will be to build a long term business that produces as much income as you want, by just buying customers. Imagine the reaction other potential distributors will display with a HUGE sigh of relief. Imagine health products that are “patented”, exclusive, double blind tested and compliant with the FDA. Imagine a leads program on top of the customer acquisition program that have been interviewed for health products, that respond positively to you were as you can easily send them samples, marketing material and follow ups via Trivita’s back office sample program.

This is the way it should be done and Trivita is going to turn the entire MLM industry UPSIDE DOWN.

I have been a “Distributor” with Trivita since 2001 and have earned over $1 million in commissions. Several years ago Trivita shut down the MAPS program (Where we used to buy customers for the B12 and Nopalea Juice). Trivita went about retooling and are now about to relaunch with state of the art marketing, customer acquisition, lead production and automated sample fulfillment. Many distributors are already preparing to invest several millions into the customer acquisition.

Do not miss this launch. This time around I will build a massive organization and we will all be able to have 6 figure incomes next year. PAY ATTENTION!

Experts Predict Bitcoin Hits 1 Million Next Year

Experts Predict Bitcoin Hits 1 Million Next Year

We have the opportunity right now to take a very good risk to acquire results into the millions of dollars.

Here me out and come to our live webinars. Time is running out.

The lessons learned in business. Paying attention and seeking knowledge. Pursuing wisdom and mentors with wisdom and experience

Case in point, Bitcoin 2009, where were you?

You see back in 2012 when Bitcoin was trading around a penny, I was aware of the new revolutionary tech called Blockchain. Aware, but very ignorant. I had $50,000 invested in bulk silver coin and gold 1 ounce Maple Leafs. I was totally focused on the wrong preparations for the immediate future

I am a smart, experienced, entrepreneur and have been my entire life. I created and built Veretekk with nothing more than my visions, and my bare hands. There was no one before me to teach me. I joined UCSD’s Super Computer center to learn how to build the tools I envisioned and with the help of George Kremeneck and the partnership I built with Jeff Balmeo, we, laid the foundations, for what is now Markethive, the first off, Market Network (evolving from the Social Networks). I invented Inbound Marketing in the mid 1990’s Way way too early.

Markethive is a new wave technology, born from 20+ years of endeavor, innovation and dedication. It’s time has come. Why? And why am I discussing the summary history of and birth of Markethive?

Because it needed the Blockchain to morph into the most powerful social network what the pundits have identified as the new Market Networks that will dwarf the “Social Networks” and we are the first to produce one.

But Markethive needs a Blockchain to produce a shopping platform that every single human could utilize to build wealth regardless of nationality or residency. That is our mission, and MCC’s blockchain has given us the foundation to do it.

So, how in the world did I miss it in 2009-2012? I was not “Paying Attention” If I had paid attention, I would have liquidated my small holding of silver and gold, and purchased $50,000 worth of Bitcoin at less than a penny per coin.

Segway to the near completion of Markethive, discovering that Markethive was actually a Market Network, a new market to supersede the Social Networks, as has begun recognition of this new burgeoning  SAAS, Social Network, market platform predicted to eclipse the Social Networks and become the first Quadrillion dollar market.

Markethive (over 20 years in development) is ready to launch, as the new Market Network.

In that process we are seeking capital investors. And along came MCC, as this new emerging Blockchain company, they see the future and raw power potential in Markethive.

So James Wilfong and I talked about their investing into Markethive. We negotiated 5% of the Markethive stock for $5 million. This comes about in January after their ICO (Initial Coin Offer).

A few weeks after the negotiations I started really looking at the bitcoin market, educating myself, researching etc. As I did so, it started to form from the fog, that perhaps MCC (MyCryptoCoin) was more then I realized at first.

Now understand; as I did this research it dawned on me that back in 2008 when I started buying up Gold and Silver bulk coins (not collector coins) at around $800 per ounce. About $50,000 worth.

If I had paid attention to the Bitcoin revolution and bought the same amount I would have over $4.5 billion today. This caught my attention. I have seen a similar event with the Internet, but this is actually hundreds of times more intense. In fact, this trend (revolution) will likely be bigger than any other event in the history of mankind.

I started to realize that what MyCryptoCoin was doing was not just another coin, MyCryotoCoin’s DAO (Do you know what that is?), Their own Blockchain, their own proprietary Wallet, all developed with engineers that came from Bitcoin and Etherium, are about to launch the next level in this revolution. I call it bitcoin V2 and will address and solve the latency of Bitcoin, will give Markethive the ability to offer an Ebay type shopping platform that will allow all forms of live payment processing within 2nds.

Listen carefully, Markethive will be able to offer an Ebay type shopping platform that will accept all forms of payment. With MyCryptoCurrency over coming Bitcoins bottle neck of latency, transactions in crypto coin, fiat accounts (ACH), credit cards, 3rd party wallets like Payza, and Paypal will all be accepted with instantaneous transactions. Instant, no waiting (like) occurs with today’s crypto coins.

This is a substantial technical advancement that will both catapult Markethive becoming a trillion dollar Market Network, eclipsing LinkedIn (A social network) with monthly profits in the billions. Think I am kidding?

Fueled by MCC (mycrytocurrency) another huge disruptive company poised to launch, which I am convinced will eclipse Bitcoin, because they will be launching the “Latency” solution Blockchain, an advanced Wallet that solves the online Merchant Account issues and a series of other proprietary technology that will bring the CryptoCurrecy revolution into the main stream.

I missed the first wave with Bitcoin in 2009 but I am firmly paying attention this time.

Come to the meetings! Do not miss this!

Trump Picks Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Advocate as Budget Chief

Trump Picks Cryptocurrency and Blockchain
Advocate as Budget Chief

Bitcoin Caucus co-founder Mick Mulvaney is the US'
next Director of Office of Management and Budget.

It seems the election of Donald Trump could spell great news for American blockchain startups and cryptocurrency users. President-elect Trump has added to his cabinet an active and vocal supporter of cryptocurrencies and blockchain which means that there will be at least one powerful voice in the US government that will resist further efforts to legislate the technology into oblivion.

Trump picked Congressman Mick Mulvaney, Tea Party Republican, as his administration’s Director of Office of Management and Budget. He is considered a staunch fiscal conservative that wishes to drastically limit the federal government’s spending on social programs.

Just this September he was among the founders of the bipartisan Blockchain Caucus. Commonly called the Bitcoin Caucus by American media, it is meant to help congressmen stay up to speed on cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, and develop policies that advance them.

Mick Mulvaney

“Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the financial services industry, the U.S. economy and the delivery of government services, and I am proud to be involved with this initiative,” Mulvaney said in a statement back then.

Mulvaney is also a supporter of Coin Center, a non-profit research and advocacy center focused on public policy issues facing cryptocurrency technologies, which raised over $1 million earlier this year.

“For the past two years we have worked with Representatives Mulvaney and Polis to educate their colleagues through briefings and other events, and the new Congressional Blockchain Caucus will be a wonderful new platform to continue these efforts,” Jerry Brito, executive director of Coin Center said at the time. “Their forward-thinking leadership on blockchain technology in Congress is unmatched.”

Bitcoin: The True Democracy -Do you want the option to turn $50,000 into $3 million?

bcBitcoin: The True Democracy
Stefan Molyneux and Jeffrey Tucker

Do you want the option to turn $50,000 into $3 million? Wait, and also received $100,000 in private stock in a rising emerging state of the art Market Network, and that $3 million potentially turning into billions within a few years even within one year?

Visionaries, Internet Geniuses, and Network Wizards will be hosting the next webinar where you will understand what the Brexit effect, the Trump effect represent in the economies of 2017 and how you could make a modest investment today and become a multi-millionaire next year.

If you had invested $50,000 into Bitcoin at its beginning you would be worth $4.8 billion today. That was the first wave of what is to become a series of waves each one a bigger wave than the last one.

We are now staring at the next wave. It is right in front of us.

The True Democracy how the Blockchain not only brings wealth to the common man and woman, it also prevents war. Because the blockchain ends usury and usury is needed to finance war. So the blockchain architecture ends the ability to wage war.

Stefan Molyneux (A brilliant and very nice guy) discusses why war becomes obsolete in the decentralized world of the blockchain.

How to Write an eBook (Blog) Quickly

tbnlHow to Write an eBook (Blog) Quickly

Entrepreneurs are busy people. Many of us do realize the importance of business of writing and publishing an ebook, but we simply feel we don’t have the time to write a book, especially if you are already producing a lot of content with our blog(s).

I can think of many types of books you can write fast—especially by blogging them—and turn them into short ebooks. I am an active blogger as you probably know by the volume I produce in Markethive.

Case in point (and feel free to swipe them and make your own Ebook. An eBook on Inbound marketing.

  1. Inbound Marketing Explained and Compared link: https://markethive.com/group/marketingdept/blog/inbound-marketing-explained-and-compared
  2. Get Found using Inbound Marketing link: https://markethive.com/group/marketingdept/blog/get-found-using-inbound-marketing

The same can be done for email, social marketing, SEO, etc. utilizing my and others who allow swiping in Markethive. You see, you have no excuse.

Short ebooks can be anywhere from 15 to 100 manuscript pages in length. The completed book might be between 4,000-35,000 words long. This is, indeed a short book you write fast.

Create a content plan for you short ebook, and then don’t make more work for yourself than necessary. Keep your chapters short. Don’t write more than necessary. Blog your book, or write it as if you were blogging it; sit down each day and write 500 words. Then make each chapter 1,500-2,500 words long, for example. Each chapter will consist of 3-5 blog posts (each averaging 500 words). If you have 10 chapters, you’ll end up with a 15,000-25,000 word book.

Even use a transcription service. The one I use requires Chrome to work. Link: https://transcribe.wreally.com/app

Perhaps you have a Youtube video you want to transcribe, or you can easily narrate with a microphone like I do. Even transcribe live events.

Whatever word processing program you use, keep an eye on your word count so you don’t overwrite. Remember: You are writing a short ebook fast.

Let’s take a look at the seven types of short books you might consider writing or blogging.

The point is the options are endless.

The Markethive Automated Workshop

Markethive is a Market Network

Come join me as I run the workshop system that lifts you up into entrepreneurial exceptionalism!

Markethive is a Market Network. That means it is basically broken down into 3 facets all integrated.

  1. A market platform for conducting business
  2. A social network primarily for entrepreneurs
  3. A SAAS (Software as a Service) Inbound Marketing platform

All systems (Facebook included) have a learning curve. Our focus, our goal, is to deliver to you a gentle intuitive fun and rewarding learning process. We are in the process of turning the entire process into an automated structure. Regardless, this learning structure is designed to build you into a powerful , wealthy, successful entrepreneur.

Are you an entrepreneur? Good question. Not necessarily easy to answer. So here are a few definitions:

The classic definition (I do not totally agree with)
en·tre·pre·neur
noun: entrepreneur; plural noun: entrepreneurs

  1.  a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so

Most people would agree that an entrepreneur is a person who has started his or her own business. But that basic definition barely scratches the surface. It does little to capture the true essence of what it means to be a risk-taker, innovator and individual willing to carve his or her own path in a world that doesn't always take kindly to people who fail to follow the status quo. 

Are you itching to venture out on your own, but you wonder if you have what it takes to choose the road less traveled? Check out what these company founders and business leaders think makes a truly successful entrepreneur.

However, before we venture further defining what exactly is an “entrepreneur” and other aspects breaking it down and related concerns like “venture capital” and the proverbial “entrepreneurial ecosystem, let me direct you along the paths of getting quickluy up to speed, as I believe that is exactly what you need. To succeed, attain structure, stability, vision and ultimately wealth.

Getting into our Workshops:

I made this simple little instructional video so you clearly see how easy it is to assimilate this ecocenter and huge powerful platform.

OK now about being an entrepreneur!

"Entrepreneurship is all about embracing challenges. When you're building something from the ground up, you need to get into the weeds and problem solve. All the weed whacking often allows you to better hone in on a better big-picture strategy — why did this happen? How do I solve it? How do smarter people than me solve it? With a young company, when you experience a new challenge, it's usually a growing pain. So while it can be difficult to get through, it's for the best possible reason — your company is getting bigger!" – Jennie Ripps, CEO of Owl's Brew

 

"To me, entrepreneurship means being able to take action and having the courage to commit and persevere through all of the challenges and failures. It is a struggle that an entrepreneur is willing to battle. It is using past experiences and intelligence to make smart decisions. Entrepreneurs are able to transform their vision into a business. I believe this process is at the core of any true entrepreneur." – MJ Pedone, founder and CEO of Indra Public Relations

 

"Being a successful entrepreneur requires a great deal of resourcefulness, because as an entrepreneur, you often run into dead ends throughout the course of your career. You need to be able to bounce back from losses if you want to be successful. Know that there will be much more disappointment than progress when you first start off, and you need to have a short memory in order to put the past behind you quickly. It's imperative to stay optimistic when bad things happen." – Vip Sandhir, founder and CEO of HighGround

 

"Entrepreneurship is the ability to recognize the bigger picture, find where there's an opportunity to make someone's life better, design hypotheses around these opportunities, and continually test your assumptions. It's experimentation: Some experiments will work; many others will fail. It is not big exits, huge net worth or living a life of glamour. It's hard work and persistence to leave the world a better place once your time here is done." – Konrad Billetz, CEO of Frameri

 

"To me, entrepreneurship is completely dedicating yourself to creating something out of nothing. It's not simply taking a risk and hoping to realize big rewards. Creating something out of nothing also tends to present numerous challenges and roadblocks which seem insurmountable. I believe the great entrepreneurs, who I look up to, can help their team push through those roadblocks and find solutions." – David Greenberg, CEO of Updater

 

"Entrepreneurship is the mind-set that allows you to see opportunity everywhere. It could be a business idea, but it could also be seeing the possibilities in the people that can help you grow that business. This ability to see many options in every situation is critically important; there will be unending challenges that will test your hustle." – Preeti Sriratana, co-founder and CEO of Sweeten

 

"It is not about making a quick buck or deal. Successful entrepreneurs look past that 'quick buck' and instead look at the bigger picture to ensure that each action made is going toward the overall goal of the business or concept, whether or not that means getting something in return at that moment." – Allen Dikker, CEO of Potatopia

 

"Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle, in that being an entrepreneur is ingrained in one's identity. [It] is the culmination of a certain set of characteristics: determination, creativity, the capacity to risk, leadership and enthusiasm. I don't think you can be an entrepreneur without these qualities, and for me, that idea was ingrained in me very early on. An entrepreneur is part of the foundation of who I am, and who I strive to be." – Eric Lupton, president of Life Saver Pool Fence Systems

 

"Entrepreneurship is an unavoidable life calling pursued by those who are fortunate enough to take chances [and are] optimistic enough to believe in themselves, aware enough to see problems around them, stubborn enough to keep going, and bold enough to act again and again. Entrepreneurship is not something you do because you have an idea. It's about having the creativity to question, the strength to believe and the courage to move." – Jordan Fliegel, founder of CoachUp

 

"The journey of entrepreneurship is a lifestyle for many of us; we are wired this way and have no choice. We are driven by an innate need to create, build and grow. In order to be a successful entrepreneur, you must have an underlying positivity that enables you to see beyond the day-to-day challenges and roadblocks, always moving forward. You must also be a master plate juggler, able to switch between thinking, genres and activities moment to moment. Most importantly, you must not be afraid to fail, and you must be comfortable living with risk and unknowns — a state of mind which is certainly not for everyone!” – Justine Smith, founder and CEO of Kids Go Co.

 

"Being an entrepreneur is about giving everything you have when the going gets tough and never giving up. If you truly love and believe in what you're doing, then you must hang in there. Entrepreneurship is not knowing everything about your business. You must humble yourself and not work from your ego. Always be willing to grow, change and learn." – Jennifer MacDonald and Hayley Carr, founders of Zipit Bedding

 

"Entrepreneurship is seeing an opportunity and gathering the resources to turn a possibility into a reality. It represents the freedom to envision something new and to make it happen. It includes risk, but it also includes the reward of creating a legacy. Anti-entrepreneurship is satisfaction with the status quo, layers of controls and rules that hamper forward movement, and fear of failure." – Maia Haag, co-founder and president of I See Me!

 

"When it comes to being a successful entrepreneur, I think one must possess grit. The stakes tend to be high, the bumps in the road frequent. Remaining focused, regardless of the obstacles, is paramount. That said, being an entrepreneur means being in full control of your destiny. If that's important to you, then all of the challenges associated with striking out on one's own are but a small price to pay.” – Mike Malone, founder of Livestock Framing

Markethive’s Fully Automated Email Marketing

Markethive’s Fully Automated Email Marketing

I have been developing auto responder since 1994.
I invented it. It was called Veremail.
Today after more than 20 years we have unveiled
a new paradigm in the automation market.

 

Markethive History of Email:

In 2016, email turns 45 and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, it’s one of the most widely used and trusted channels for people to communicate today. It’s helped elect world leaders and has been the secret ingredient for many startups to grow into multi-billion dollar companies.

But the dark side of email is spam. While today’s spam filters do a good job of keeping junk out of our inboxes, many organizations also get caught in the crossfire of the war on spam when their emails end up in the spam folder. If your subscribers don’t see your emails, then they can’t open, click, and convert.

While the importance of reaching customers’ inboxes is undeniable, the reality is that many messages are missing the mark. This year, on average, one in five messages failed to reach the inbox. Global deliverability also experienced a slight but steady decline quarter over quarter, with 24 percent of messages missing the inbox in the last quarter studied.

With deliverability declining, marketers are missing out on building valuable relationships and achieving the highest possible ROI.

The Path to the Inbox:

Getting to the inbox entails more than hitting the send button. Below is a representation of the filters each message encounters on its journey.

Emails that are able to make past both gateway and spam filters are delivered to the inbox. Emails that are deemed malicious or untrustworthy are often blocked at the gateway, never reaching the inbox or the spam folder. For messages that make it past the gateway, spam filters look at the reputation of the sender, subscriber engagement, and content to decide if it should be placed in the inbox or the spam folder.

Measuring Inbox Placement:

There are many different ways to measure deliverability. In this report, we will focus on one important source:

Seed Data

Seed addresses were one of the first ways Markethive and email marketers measure inbox placement rates. Have you ever tested an email campaign’s deliverability rate by sending it to your personal email address? That’s similar to how seed addresses work. But at Markethive, we have seed addresses at hundreds of mailbox providers and filters around the world, and we use these multiple addresses to checks to see if it was delivered, and if so, reports whether it went to the inbox or the spam folder. Delivery, Placement (into the Inbox), The speed it arrives and reputation it receives (Images are active, no fishing warnings, etc.).

How others measure utilizing spying techniques

Another way to measure deliverability is by monitoring the activity of real consumer inboxes. This is possible through images reporting back to the originating server receiver’s behavior.

This type of data is different from seed data in that the data is generated from real email accounts that are actively owned and managed by real subscribers at AOL, Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, etc. Through stealth technology, these image (scripts) are able to gather real world data and real world email behaviors. For example, if an email lands in the inbox or spam folder, these reports can see whether or not people read an email, reported it as spam, or many other hidden user behaviors!

Aweber even brags about this technique on their web sites.
https://blog.aweber.com/email-marketing/how-are-email-opens-tracked.htm

We do not engage in sneaky image spy techniques. Others do, in fact Aweber, Get Response, I contact, Mail Chimp, Hubspot, Pardot, Sales Force and all the others do. We DON’T! We have a far superior solution that results in greater results for you.

Platform:

Markethive utilizes mail servers running from the Amazon cloud. Amazon demands perfect email practices. Therefore, our technology solution for attaining “leads” (Name, Email, Social Network, Phone, Source) is unique. We reject the old practice of a capture page with fields asking for “Name”, “Email”, “Phone”, etc. accompanied by a Submit button.

We utilize OAuth technology and have innovated a (patent pending) solution we simply call “One Click” submission. No fields to fill out, no “SUBMIT” button to push, no “instructions” to open your email client and retrieve the verification email and another link to click on to complete a process that is not secure, and guarantees a spam trap free process.

Our process offers a selection of popular Social Networks to subscribe with. One simply taps the icon of choice. If the prospect is already logged into said Social Network, the process is completed instantaneously. “One Click” means just that. In that simple one click decision, you, the Markethive member, just received a true verified batch of date (Name, Email, and Social Network).

In that moment of decision, the desired results are instant. In the notoriously abusive option, each action allows the subscriber to “not continue”. A Name and Email Field and Submit button equate to 3 steps, then navigating and opening the mail client, finding the verification email and clicking on the email link equate another 3 steps with a minimum of 6 steps, each step offering the potential subscriber, to reconsider and stop the process.

The other serious problem is that verification email’s timely or delayed delivery and the very good possibility that verification email ends up in the spam folder.

I have timed verification emails from many legitimate services out there to take 30 minutes to several hours to be delivered. This delay guarantees a drastic loss of subscribers as well.

Delivery of email is paramount and job one at Markethive. However, we have already dispensed with the old school yesteryear process of email verification. Now that we have developed instantaneous “One Click” subscriptions, we now concentrate on delivering your “auto responders” and email “Broadcasts”.

Deliverability (IronPort) (Amazon Cloud)

Capturing your leads data, name, email, etc. is just half the job, and Markethive has innovated doing this 500%-1000% better than anyone else. However, delivering the mail is just as much if not more of the challenge and Markethive crushes it here too.

First off, we have the unfair advantage over all the others for one huge reason. We do not allow emails into our system. Seems contradictory, doesn’t it? We allow Social Network data transfer of verified data through the OAuth technology that has become standard in today’s Internet environment.

This means the challenge of spam complaints, discovering spam trap emails in the system and the constant defense of spam complaints does not exist with us. Because our process of acquiring contact data is 10 times more secure and 100% validated at the point of contact.

This means IronPort and Amazon see our quality process, never receive spam complaints or receive SORBs and other blacklisting notification. This is why we are able to send your email out within seconds and enjoy delivery rates above 99% into your Inbox, not spam folders.

Good marketing practices breed a good reputation. We do not engage in shifty and sneaky practices. We do not send email from our system with hidden spying images. We do not report to our subscribers what you view, what you clicked, what you opened and looked at today or any day. What we do offer, no others do, is a fully operational Market Network.

Like a Social Network a Market Network has a social component. Unlike Social Networks, the Market Network is a market powered by SaaS (Software as a System). Market Networks have intrinsic value to the entrepreneur at Markethive. Were they find costs like auto were we offer better value, and better results at NO COST for  superior solution.

We spare no cost or discount any features. We have massive mailing servers, and because we are in the Amazon cloud formation, ramping up additional performance is automatic. That guarantees, you suffer no degradation to your email being sent within seconds.

We clock test our email sending often whereas whole databases in the 10s of 1000s are sent and delivered within a couple of minutes.

The following reports are the professional systems mail server admins utilize to monitor the mail. The following reports, from Barracuda, Cisco, WatchGuard, and Sender Score consistently report Markethive as a top performance, good practice, non-spam system.

Management

Markethive Auto Responders are elegantly simple but incredible powerful. In the Email control panel there are only 3 levels to understand, setting up your actual autoresponders, broadcasting messages out to your lead databases and the study of your email broadcast history. That is it.

When it comes to managing your autoresponders, the best way to demonstrate the beauty of simplicity is to show you. (Put Video here)

Campaigns

With auto responder systems, many call each set of autoresponders a campaign. You may have several capture pages you are marketing and advertising. We organize our campaigns in Lead Groups. When a prospect signs up via your capture widget, that lead is stored in a Lead Group of your choice.

 Unlike the other Auto Responder companies, we do not charge for additional lead groups or campaigns. You can have as many campaigns (lead groups) as you wish.

Capture System

Our capture system is a state of the art system. It employs the One Click subscribe function. We offer hundreds of templates with many themes and many top MLM company themes as well. Other systems that are similar cost a minimum of $20 per month as high as $150 per month.

We are the only comprehensive free system. We are the only system that gives you a page widget so you can host your capture page easily on your own domain.

Conclusion

Markethive Auto Responders are built by the original inventor of the auto responder back in 1996. This technology was developed extensively the following 20 years in a company called Veretekk. Today, we offer you an auto responder system that dwarfs the capability and effectiveness of the entire industry.

Markethive auto responder systems captures more leads, and delivers higher rates and into the Inbox better than all the others, combined.
