Currently we are still looking for some great moderators who would like to spend some of their time working with the Get Self-Development team. Check out our vacancies and see if you fit the job  and how to apply.

To help our moderators remove a bit of the pressure we created some rules and regulations that we ask people to follow. Again, this is purely created for us to offer you the highest quality that’s possible. Please read this Forum FAQ before using our discussion boards.

 

2.7 Get Self-Development Get Charity Program

The vision of Get Self-Development is to help people grow, achieve success and become a better and  more satisfied happy person. We try to do this by providing all the necessary information to actually achieve their goal. We hope that when someone has reached a certain level of success, they will also influence the people around them and start the snowball effect of changing the world.
To really help this snowball effect, ripple effect of whatever you want to call it ;-)... We decided to also setup a charity program. Because Get Self-Development is such a large portal which offers informational content within 6 main categories, we also decided to work with 6 types of charities.

These types are:

  WATER: Provisioning of clean Drinkwater
  WELL BEING: Improving Healthcare where it’s needed
  WILDLIFE: Protection and Care of our Wildlife and Animals in general
  WISDOM: Improving Education and Help youth get an educated foundation
  WORLD: Improving of our World, Environment and Nature

 

WHERE IT'S NEEDED MOST: The Charity Virgin Unite will decide where it’s needed most

We have called our charity program The W6 Gratitude Charity Program and Experts may choose which charity they like support. Every time someone buys a product from the self-help compare overview Get Self-Development will earn some commissions. At least 10% (and hopefully more later) of those commissions that we receive will go to the charity of the experts choice. We also got much bigger plans for this charity program which you can read more of in The Get Gratitude Charity Program article.

 

2.8 Get Self-Development Self Help Events

The Self-Help Events module on this website is also one of its kind and quite unique throughout the internet. Here you’ll can find many events from all over the world or online available.

When you have a moment were you don’t feel it anymore or you just aren’t as motivated. Reading through some of these success stories can help you enormously feel motivated again. Ask others, who already achieved what you like to achieve, some questions and get help getting to your goal. Success stories are just such a great way to help each other out. If they can do it...

4 Comparing Self-help Products and Experts

With www.getselfdevelopment.com online you now easily can find what products or which expert you like best to finally achieve what you want!

 Comparing Self-help Products and Experts

At Get Self-Development you can find a large collection of all kinds of personal development materials. Now how to find out what really works? This is where we will help you. By choosing the category that you would like to have improved you’ll find many programs that are available to get to your goal. Select your preferences like price, rating and product type and see your results. Then select the products that you would like to compare and see a nice overview of each pro or con. Read reviews from other people and finally decide which program works best for you!

The idea behind it all

Before the launch of this web portal there weren’t any comparing websites available in the personal development scene. Now if you, like Patrique Burgersdijk was, are on a limited budget, you only can spend your money once. Especially in such a situation, it would be very nice if what you buy from the internet would actually work! The beautiful stories with recommendations on the website of the expert are very appealing but Patrique also knew how advertisement works. So how to be really sure of the quality of a product or expertise of an expert. The only option in our opinion would be doing some very time consuming research on the internet. Read on different discussion boards, read the profiles and reviews on Facebook and if even possible, ask people who have used their products or services.

Now that’s a lot of work before buying a product! Wouldn’t it be great if these self-help products also could be reviewed and compared just like on those product comparing websites… Why isn’t that available yet?
Fortunately... It is now :-)

 

4.1 Comparing Ratings & Reviews of Self-Development Products

Our goal when creating this website was to offer you the most extensive website to compare self-help materials. A very big part in comparing products is to compare them with public ratings and reviews that people can leave behind.

Some Key areas that can be rated are:

  • Effectiveness:
    Effectiveness is about how well the objectives are achieved using this program or service. How well does this product help you to solve the targeted problems?
  • Ease of Implementation:
    Ease of Implementation is about how well the product is setup. Is this program easy to understand and does it help you with step by step methods to implementing the taught lessons in your life? Do you know exactly what to do while or after you have been working with this product or service?
  • Innovation:
    Innovation is about the lessons that can be learned using this program or service. Is this more of the same or have you learned a lot of new lessons that are a great help achieving your goals?
  • Packaging/ Customer Service:
    Packaging and Customer Service is about how well the specific Expert/Organization has send you the materials. How well was the product designed? Did they communicate clearly? Have you had contact with their support? How well and fast did they respond?
  • Value for Money:
    After purchasing the product and having gone through the program. Was it worth the money? Did you learn many highly useful lessons that you could implement and benefit from? For example: Will this program earn its money back?
  • Desired outcome:
    Now In the end did you get to you desired goal? How high are the chances of achieving your goal using this program or service?

Comparing ratings like these and reading reviews from others can help you enormously making an final decision what program would work best for you!

 

4.2 Comparing Ratings & Reviews of Self-Development Experts

Every expert is another individual and all with their specific characteristics. It’s sometimes very time consuming to get to know a person and find out if he or she fits your style. By comparing below key pillars of strength you can get a better picture of who would be a great expert you could learn from.

  • Knowledge:
    How well does the Expert knows the materials he teaches? How much Experience does he/she have?  Does he/she have a good background?
  • Character:
    How does you’re the Expert present himself/herself as a person? Do they show sincere interest in clients? Show they compassion? Do they have a genuine personality?
  • Communication:
    Is the Expert easy to understand? Does he/she communicate well? How well is the Expert able to make an normally “hard to understand” subject in a more easy to understand structure?
  • Motivation:
    Does the Expert do a good job of motivating you, getting you out of your comfort zone, inspiring you to get the best possible outcome?
  • Results:
    How well did the Expert help you get your desired outcome? Did he/she gave you new insights? Are you happy with the results?

 

5 The Get Self-Development Community

Get Self-Development CommunityThe Get Self-Development community consist of 4 groups of people who together create an amazing platform that try to help each other grow and become a better person in one or more aspect in life. These groups, of course consist of our very valued “Experts”. Without the help of these people who invest their time to share their knowledge to other people this all wouldn’t be possible. We also have our equally important members of www.getselfdevelopment.com  who took the effort to register their own account and interact to be part of this community. Without our members all would be a lot quieter ;-)

Another large group of this community are our visitors which we also respect very much. We hope that this web portal offers enough information and knowledge to help all our visitors start or continue on their path to personal growth. Last but not least are all Get Self-Development team members. Without them this portal wouldn’t even be build, managed, filled, moderated, advertised and much more.

 

5.1 More about our Get Self-Development Experts

Who are these experts and why are they part of the Get Self-Development community?
Well... On the internet you can find many many people who have some knowledge they share with others. Whether this is in the form of an eBook or many video programs doesn’t really matter. Some are better known, like Brian Tracy or Anthony Robbins and some are (maybe at this moment) not as famous. That doesn’t mean only the well-known experts can be part of Get Self-Development.

The best guarantee a product, service or expert really delivers to help you achieve your goal!

Want an almost guarantee that the program you like really works? Many experts offer a no questions asked money back guarantee but if that not enough watch for products and experts with our special trustmark.

Products and Experts with a SILVER Trustmark really acquired quite a gathering of clients and 50 or even more of them have shown their loyalty by posting their personal ratings or reviews of this specific expert or product. 50 individuals all with a personal profile on Get Self-Development left their opinion. Now if that isn’t an almost guarantee these ratings represent the truth?

6.3 Golden Trustmark

The highest Trustmark currently available on Get Self-Development. Experts and Products with such a Trustmark have acquired ratings and reviews from a 100 or more individuals. If 100 individuals are telling you something really works? Would you consider it to be true?

14 HOW TO: Create an Article That Has The Most Chance Of Getting on The Front-page

How To Manual

As you can imagine you’ll attract most public and possibly new clients when you have an high quality article that many people will read. If you like to have your article featured on our homepage there are a few things you can do to have more chance getting yours there.

  1. First of all the information that you share needs to be very valuable for the readers of Get Self-Development. If you share your best tips and tricks people will automatically think the other knowledge that you’ll share is of the same or even higher quality. Use this in your advantage!
  2. The information is most important but it also needs to be well formatted to make the article more easy to read. Use titles, sub titles, bullets, short paragraphs, short sentences etc.
  3. Use pictures! You probably have heard this before but pictures are worth a 1000 words. This is said often for a reason. Pictures, and definitively the higher quality pictures make an article so much more attractive. This is absolutely required to get your article on the front-page.
  4. Use links. At Get Self-Development we don’t mind if you use certain kind of links to link to a page which will provide more in depth information about a specific topic.
    Links we love to see are links to:
    -   In depth/informative articles
    -   You tube video’s (preferable to the video via www.getselfdevelopment.com)
    -   Customized affiliate product links with the Get Self-Development affiliate id

    Links that are not allowed are links to:
    -   Affiliate links of products that are not your own
    -   Downloadable content that is illegal.
     
  5. Add the thumbnail picture that can be added below the article field when creating the article. This will also help get more visibility in the overall article overview.
  6. The article will be checked for duplicate content. When you have added an article that is only used on Get Self-Development this will also give you a much higher chance of getting your article on our homepage.
  7. Promote your article beforehand and get a higher amount of views. This will help us notice your article and hopefully using it for on our homepage.
  8. Make sure you have filled in all the information in your profile. If people want to know the author it’s much nicer for them to read a full profile then only a name.
  9. Being active will be rewarded. If you’ll spend your time being an active contributor helping members of our community this also get noticed. We just might reward you with a front page article.
  10. Because so many experts like to be on the FrontPage our Next Level (Affiliate) Experts and Premium(+) (Credit) Experts do get some priority.

Notice!
We want you to know that it is possible that your article will not be put on the front page for some time. We only have limited space and try to do our best to keep a balance in content, experts, high leverage articles and some other factors.
Because self-development isn’t always time relevant it’s very good possible that we will put one of your older articles on the front page.

 

15 HOW TO: Add a Video

Video is a great way to get in the spotlight and convey your message. The advantage is when you tell about a topic that is of interest of the viewer it’s much harder for them to skim trough it like is often done with articles. So our advice absolutely is make use of video and add them to your profile! One thing you should know before adding a video is you need to use the correct url for adding them to your profile.

  • For YouTube videos this is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXXXXXX
    Make sure to remove all other information which sometimes is displayed in the link like &feature=player_detailpage or list=XXXXXXXXXXXX&
  • The correct link for Vimeo is: http://www.vimeo.com/123456 or vimeo.com/123456
