Looking Harder at a Powerful Life

Powerful Life has experienced powerful growth!  Even since we last blogged about them.  Because of this we thought it would be only appropriate to take another look and see how they help people live a powerful life through an interview. Here’s what they had to say.

Why did you decide to create your social network on Ning?

Currently, we are one of the fastest growing green companies in North America, with more than 35,000 new clients in just the past three months. I saw starting up a community and getting to know our clients “face to face” as one of the most important things we could do, so we did it!

It took a whole 1 minute and 50 seconds to set up our Ning Network… It’s the easiest thing!

What is your favorite feature on the network?

The broadcasting feature. Here’s why:
1. It’s got a kick-butt deliverability rate. We can reach all the people in our network, who are our best clients, and are guaranteed those e-mails will get there.
2. So far we haven’t been able to track our open rates, but when we send a special news broadcast once a week it seems almost everyone is reading those e-mails because they come directly from “the Network” – everyone wants to keep up to date with the Network so they open the broadcast e-mails!

Few people know just how important this is, not only to your wallet, but the long term survival of your idea / organization / company!

Do you have any advice for other Network Creators?

Get 4-8 really excited and helpful paid administrators, and your community will thrive.

What are your plans for the future of Powerful Life?

PowerfulLife.com is currently the fastest growing green company on the Planet. With over $5,000,000 in sales in the past 3 months alone. Our short term goal is to be a billion dollar green company by next year. We anticipate to have over 100,000 members in our community by September/October

How does a network like this help with green living?

What we do is help people go green, save money and the planet in BIG ways. That is, we connect people with products that actually MAKE a HUGE impact and difference to the Environment and Your Wallet. Lately every business is coming out with “green” products and “green” angles on their marketing. The way I see it, it’s a disgusting thing, just a way to squeeze some money out of the emerging ‘Green’ awareness.

People are buying almost anything with a “green” logo and companies are cashing in. “Buy our shoes, we make them in a solar powered factory”… Uh, okay, good for you, but that doesn’t anything to do with my desire to do big things for the Planet. Or how about all those “Let’s gather together and commit to making a difference” communities? What do they sell/promote in the end? bloody T-Shits with green logos! Seriously? What’s the deal here! There’s a lot of buzz and talk but very little solid leadership and direction in this area.

That’s why we started PowerfulLife.com

The reality is, there are things you can do that will actually save you up to $4,000 per year on energy costs, and decrease your carbon foot-print by up to 95%… over the span of just 6 or 7 days, with minimal effort. And it has nothing to do with buying halogen light-bulbs, driving less or going on an “air-line ticket diet.” Yet people don’t know about this stuff. Check out the magnetic laundry system that just came out on PowerfulLife.com if you want an example.

Where Ning comes in is where the magic happens. The people on our web-site that use these solutions gather together, talk and interact, we interact with them, and the whole thing goes “Viral” 10 times faster!

At the end of the day, Ning makes what we do 1,000% more fulfilling, when we see the people’s who’s lives we impact “face to face”, read their bios and look at their family pictures… that’s awesome! 🙂
