The Markethive Affiliate program is inspired by a similar program that Paypal used to expand the membership and develop recognition of their brand and their service. Starting out with just 20 people, their affiliate program started out and maintained a 7% growth daily. Which equates to doubling the membership base every 2 weeks. This is why we are building a similar program.
The Be The Alpha affiliate program for Markethive members illustrated:
Unlike Paypal, we do not have large venture capital, therefore we have decided to be generous in our affiliate commissions to inspire exponential growth. Our affiliate program pays up to 50% to qualified members from all of their front line advertising revenues. Advertising revenues come from banner ads, profile page upgrades, calendar promotions and news feed boosts. Additional revenues can be expected during the life of the company from technology expansions like the current revelation of integrated conference rooms.
We are mixing the affiliate program into an entrepreneur training and development process called the Be The Alpha program and the structural layout works like this.
Selected allows the member to access the system without the annoying popups pitching the program for 30 days. No capture page and no commissions.

The Be The Alpha affiliate program uses the parent | child terminology to define the relationship that develops when a new member registers via the Alpha Profile page.
Like software, we refer to the owner of the profile page when their profile page is upgraded to capture new Markethive memberships, as "parent" and the new members that sign up into the parents profile capture page as "children". This terminology lends itself to our description because the "parents" as mentors to their "children" inherit a certain responsibility to take a level of responsibility to assist their children to grow into competent parents themselves.
The program evolves or ascends from each level to a higher action. The first level, Trailblazer. is designed to give the new member 30 days rest from the constant default to the Alpha Promotion page found in the Home section of the platform. After 30 days that page will again begin to play the promotional video to upgrade your system every time the member logs in or navigates the home section where the News Feed is. We certainly do not want to annoy our members, however, we would like to keep them gently aware of the benefits awaiting them by upgrading.
In the same notion, new members are connected to a Parent, A Parent is an upgraded paid member ,as upgraded members only receive new membership registrations. And as the parent rises in rank and growth, there integration to their children increases and their schooling becoming greater and more responsible entrepreneurs grows. So here is the theory in a nutshell, when it comes to building responsible, effective proven ethical entrepreneurial leadership:
“Be The Alpha” Entrepreneur program.
The very being and wanting to become an entrepreneur is a journey that begins in the heart and the soul. What is an entrepreneur and how do we know if we have what is called a calling? Defining exactly what an entrepreneur is, sometimes, it is easier to define what an entrepreneur is not.
What is not an Entrepreneur?
An Entrepreneur does not spam. An Entrepreneur does not engage into a business opportunity just to make money or just to make a living. Entrepreneurs are not capitalist in that they do not exploit others or resources just to get rich. They do not lie, cheat and steal to get ahead or to just make a profit.
Time for a PSA (Public Service Announcement)
“Do not get me wrong here. Capitalism as a political system versus socialism, communism, oligarchies, monarchies, dictatorships, etc. is a superior system. Capitalism as an economic system allows an open system made for free enterprise and it is in such a system Entrepreneurs flourish. However, being the very nature of Entrepreneurs, we can flourish in the darkest of times and it is the Entrepreneurs that push towards the light in all things such as they are.”
The characteristics of an Entrepreneur:
Entrepreneurs are leaders, "not managers". Innovators and visionaries with an endless supply of enthusiasm and connected to a resource of inner knowledge and ideas. Many potential entrepreneurs are inhibited and in bondage to the consistent worldly messages to conform, to get the job, become a cog, get a college education, go into debt and comply to the authoritative message.
Competent entrepreneurs walk in front and show others the way. They take on the hard to do, they lift the heavy obstacles, and like the Marines, are always first in and last out. Tom Sawyer is the proverbial entrepreneur, showing the crowd a master piece in the process of painting the fence faster and better than the crowd who gathered to watch. It is awe that makes the crowd members pick up a brush and join in and inspired by Tom they stay involved through the entire process and keep recruiting others.
Entrepreneurs never take short cuts. They stand firm on ethics and imbibe a level of integrity others are attracted to and recognize. Entrepreneurs are natural born leaders. They don’t stop for nearly as many breaks or gather around and watch others. Entrepreneurs always hoe to the end of the row, even in heat, rain, storm or even when supper is calling.
Entrepreneurs rarely get fired. But they often get fired up. They will quit any job that asks them to do something they don’t believe in. But they will work at any job if the reason is strong enough or they have given their word.
Entrepreneurs are shepherds with a staff who call out with their voice, not sheep herders that ride horses with lots of smart dogs that nip at your heals.
Entrepreneurs know you need to be both a leader and a manager… in that order. They always start with a leader, and then find a manager.
They know a great leader is the ultimate solution to any problem. They pay ten to a thousand times more money for a great leader than a great manager… in a heartbeat.
Entrepreneurs begin to sing out when the song begins, because they know the other voices will soon blend in and hide the fact they are slightly off key.
Entrepreneurs seek out the one lagging beyond, find what makes them tick, then challenge them to keep up and to keep time.
This is what the “Be The Alpha” program is all about.
So you want success, you want to be entrepreneurial; you want to engage your dreams, be a leader and develop the skills to make this a reality. This is why we have developed this system.
You are attracted to the Markethive and decide to sign up. You are attracted to the movement, a vision bigger than you, a mission to change the world. We all know that the spirit of entrepreneurialism is dying in America.
For the first time in America, new business starts are dropping despite the fact the population among those in ages between 25-55 historically the prime years for starting business is growing. Even more alarming is the rate of business formation has slowed, the pace of business closures, which had held steady over the previous decade, started to ascend in 2005 and spiked in 2008, according to data compiled by the Brookings Institute. Consequently, business deaths now outpace business births for the first time since researchers started collecting the data in the late 1970’s.
Therefore, the advancement, the expansion and the support of a growing base of Entrepreneurs almost takes on a religious zealousness here at Markethive.
Therefore the way we are developing our affiliate program. It has several aspects as to the why we are doing this. Primarily to drive our growth in revenues so we can reinvest back into the system as well as the mission, but even more important to start building a growing army of motivated, empowered competent entrepreneurs.
The Markethive system offers a portfolio of incredible, proprietary marketing systems that elsewhere would cost upwards of thousands of dollars a month. We are making it for free, for everyone, for life. Our source of revenue is the advertisement, not monthly membership subscriptions or any MLM type of “hope and dreams” mentality.
The new subscriber is immediately introduced to the “Be The Alpha” program where entry is free and by entering, the constant default to the Alpha Promotion video is halted for 30 days. After 30 days it will begin its annoying constant playing again, reminding the active member to make a choice again.
That beginning entry is simply called Trailblazer. This is the new member's first intro to the process of becoming entrepreneurial in character, word and deed. This process will become more sophisticated as we go. The level will be alerted to the “parent”, it will be noted on the members profile, there level and a small icon will be associated next to or on their profile picture where ever that picture appears.
It should be expected that the “parent” would take interest in their children growing and making sure the child begin watching the motivational videos, attend the many weekly motivational orientations and groups, to begin the engagement into the culture of the Entrepreneur @ Markethive, so to speak.
Once this journey begins, the system, the mentoring, the motivational orientations, the “parent” and the company will gently persuade the Trailblazer to upgrade to Voyager.
Voyager is no different than any other advertising program in Markethive, other than it actually delivers greater value. The entry level monthly fee of $25 per month, as all of our Alpha affiliate programs, always provide an equal or greater result in ad credits. As well, the Voyager platform gives the membership a Profile (capture) page, so all traffic sent to the members profile page, should a registration occur, that prospect is locked in as the “child” to the Voyager, that prospect becomes the Voyagers lead and that prospect also receives the Voyagers autoresponders and entered into the group of choice in the Profile page configuration. Voyagers do not receive advertising commissions; rather they are concentrated on building a database of “children”. As the population of children grow, with mentoring from the Markethive culture, support from the parent to the Voyager and realization that this group of children are starting to rise in the ranks from Trailblazer, to Voyagers themselves, the next step is simply to understand and the next logical action in the learning curve of the evolution of the developing entrepreneur is upgrading to Navigator.
Navigator is not really much different than Voyager, other than you progress to gathering even more advertising credits and start receiving commissions from your “children’s” advertising purchase’s. The monthly cost doubles from $25 per month to $50 per month. However the monthly ad credits quadruples. In other words, your $50 per month contribution earns you $100 in ad credits. But it also opens up to start receiving 25% commissions on all your children’s money transactions within Markethive. All transactions, because all transactions are only for advertising in Markethive, everything else has no cost to it now or ever. Even conference rooms (we just developed our own working code for those) will be totally free. They will have limits on number of seats until you sponsor ads in them. And the more ads you sponsor into the conference rooms, the larger rooms you get, as your organization of children grow and they become more sophisticated as growing entrepreneurs, the greater the incentive you have to upgrade. And upgraded levels also create greater ad credits that can be used to increase your business exposures, larger ad campaigns, and greater financial security. This in turn helps you redirect your priorities and focus, moving you further into the realm of becoming an Alpha Entrepreneur and the next step, becoming an Alpha Commander. Definition: “A great leader who has nurtured his team should be able to withdraw his presence and return to find his well-oiled machine maintaining the same momentum as before he left. A great commander is judged by his absence. A great business leader creates a system, a culture and a structure capable of growing even without his day to day involvement”.
Commander starts looking forward into the system, knowing his organization of children are now driving along from the foundations laid by the commander’s actions and the support culture that is genetic in Markethive. The monthly fee now doubles again ($100 per month), but triples the amount of advertising credits ($300 per month) and pays 40% commissions on all children's purchases. By now the Commander is starting to incorporate advertising as well as a firm command with the “Campaigns” section (the most sophisticated tool set in Markethive).
A great commander is judged in his absence.
What many entrepreneurs fail to recognize is that leadership is not so much about the leader – but more so about the ones who are being led. The key to great leadership is not to teach others to become reliant on your guidance – but rather guide others towards self-sufficiency. A great leader who has nurtured his team should be able to withdraw his presence and return to find his well-oiled machine maintaining the same momentum as before he left. A great commander is judged by his absence. A great business leader creates a system, a culture and a structure capable of growing even without his day to day involvement.
Removing yourself from the workplace in order to see the big picture is a vital part of ensuring everything is working correctly. A painter will spend days working away on detailed scenes on his artistic canvas. But to fully see the effectiveness of his efforts he must take a few steps back and judge the work in its entirety.
Like the painter, this constant waltz between micro and macro is the state of mind the modern entrepreneur must adopt in our fast changing world. The creation of new projects and ideas is an artistic process that cannot be undertaken while you remain submerged in the chaos of the trenches. Hands-on management helps you with the day-to-day running – but who is orchestrating the business’s next stage of evolution? Founders and business leaders, however, cannot simply be strategists – they need to have that unique ability to swiftly "deep dive" into the trenches when required but then elevate back up to the "aerial view" to strategically navigate the way forward. A great entrepreneur must have the vision and reflectiveness of an artist but the agility and versatility of a military commander. That's probably why they are such a rare breed.
The Commander’s level starts to fill in the gaps of becoming an Alpha Entrepreneur and the Commander starts to see the massive benefits taking the next quantum step to Alpha Odyssey. After all, the Entrepreneur can leave for a time and his/her team and return to a well-oiled enterprise.
Odyssey, what a strange term yet, conveys the final stretch to your great adventure. You are learning to accept the fate of your quests. As Tyler Perry says, " All you can do is plant your seed in the ground, water it … and believe’ – that and the Grace of God is the key to success " As you have moved forward in the “Hive” surrounded by your peers and mentors, you have learned that 100% focus works. To never stop believing in your mission, to have 100% dedicated conviction towards your dreams. You are discovering, nothing is impossible with faith.
You are now Alpha Odyssey, your $2000 contribution for a full year of service immediately pays back instant dividends with $4000 in ad credits and another $300 per month for the full year equaling a massive $7,600 plus you are now in the upper echelon of entrepreneurial leadership and can be expected to be invited to host Markethive conferences and mentoring sessions. You are now at the top of the commissions receiving 50% of all revenue generated by your children. By this time you can expect to be leading a significant organization of children who are looking to you as a leader and mentor in that sphere of internet. Now you have options.
