Is GVO (the new wwKiosk) Business Opportunity The Real Deal?

Profile picture of the author dexterc by dexterc Posted: 10/14/2009
Hi, I have been receiving lots of emails promoting the GVO Business (pay $1 for 14 day trials and after that $44.95/month) and you get to make money from the 2 x 10 Matrix.

The GVO business is all about Web Hosting, coupled with Autoresponder, Web Conference and Prospecting System.

Is this business good to go in? I have done a few searches online and there are one or two websites stating that there's issues with the hosting and the support is not really there.

Also that most of the big-shots who are promoting this business did not even host their site with GVO. Am I missing out on something as well...

Thanks in advance for the opinions shared.

    I don't know about the new model, but I've been frustrated with Kiosk for a while now. My sites seem to go down way too often and they have software that blocks my IP address constantly. I am really getting tired of dealing with them and am looking.

    Wow - I came into the forum to ask just this question!

    My webhost suddenly went out of business without notifying anyone and I was forced to make a quick decision on a new host. I was referred to GVO which I thought might be worth the cost based on their background.

    I have had up to 5 hosting accounts at one time (to do linking between my sites) and have only had issues with 2 of them. Since moving to GVO, I am having constant issues with my sites timing out.

    Here's the problem - I have 2 membership sites and new members are telling me they are not getting the emails and they cannot access the member site. GVO keeps telling me the sites are fine.

    Does anyone have any info on why people are having problems accessing the sites?

    I am using Fantasos as my payment processor which also controls the member sites. I also have a dedicated IP address with GVO.

    Update - I just tried using the site Hide My Ass! Free Proxy and Privacy Tools - Surf The Web Anonymously to access my sites and they come up fine. They have not been banned by any search engines.

    I then told my customers who could not access the sites to do the same thing - it worked just fine!

    This means, their ISP provider is blocking sites - they had to go up the tier of customer support to get the issue resolved. They can now access my member sites.

    So the question is - why would ISPs be blocking my sites? Hm - could it be due to the fact that both membership sites contain the phrase "network marketing?"

    Does anyone know where GVO is physically (geographhically located)? They and/or their users are driving me crazy sending me unwanted (and un-opted-in) emails. So I want to contact them and/or the FTC.
    Thanks

    I believe GVO is somewhere in Texas. I agree that they send unwanted emails even after I have opted out, however I have been using them for hosting for a year and have not had any troubles (knock on wood).

    GVO has a new program at hostthenprofit.com It allows you to host up to four domains with separate cpanels and WHM. Also includes an autoresponder and 5 seat conference room and is about $10 per month.

    A few years ago they moved their data center from Canada to Texas so they have plenty of room to expand.

    Yes they are MLM Network Marketing oriented however the product itself is worth the price even if you don't promote it.

    Has anyone actually used GVO's webinar service that is supposed to be like GoToWebinar but a lot cheaper? Is it the same as Meetcheap.com? Is it reliable for webinars?

    Thanks

    I have been in GVO for 5 years I have been a full time marketer for 13 years and I can tell you from experience that GVO is one of the best. Support is great and the hosting can't be touched and that doesn't even include all the tools you get with it.

    In all fairness to you and everyone else right at the moment GVO has just launch Pure Leverage and in like the first month there was 44,000 people sign up. Needless to say it's bogged them down and they are working hard to get things back to normal.

    Joel Therin is over GVO and he is exceptional that when something goes wrong he lets us know what it is what happen and as close to when it can be fixed as possible. Although in 5 years there have been very few issues.

    I hope this helps you and at least you know you heard it from someone that knows

    Thank you susan for telling people here about the problems that GVO was having recently.
    Pure leverage was way more of a success than they thought it would be so you have to understand that with that many people signing up in one month they are going to be pretty bogged down.
    As many programmers always say you can't know how well something works until it's starting to be used, and Pure leverage got it's launching founders and then some.
    I use GVO for hosting and pure leverage suite of products and I think this is the best hosting you will get anywhere simply due to all the extra stuff you get with your hosting account.

    it only is a real deal if you know how to promote it, if you already have a good list to send to.
