                         What our Partners say…

Directly Competitive Web Design Partner …
• “GHI’s SEO Services are flat out better than several nationally acclaimed Internet
    Marketing Houses located in California and NYC; I should know, I used those agencies for
    my clients and thankfully switched to GHI recently. My clients’ projects are experiencing
    better ROI with significantly improved project planning and reporting; GHI is cheaper, and
    I doubled my company’s residual income from these services while reducing my clients
    expenses by more than 40%. Quite frankly, GHI does not charge enough.”

Directly Competitive Web Design Partner …
• “Within 18 days of signing my GHI VASP Program Contract I generated a 300% return on
    my entire VASP investment. I earned 100% of my investment back and generated $3,000
    in bottom line profit! My payback period was less than 3 weeks after closing just ONE
    web site design and development deal leveraging GHI's International Vendor Program. I
    can't imagine the profit and revenue from this program after 3-5 years reselling not just
    one web service, but 10, or 20 other products and services. Thank you Pete Radke for
    introducing me to this excellent add-on program to my core business."

                      What our Partners say…

IT Consulting Partner …
• “We have been in partnership with GHI for three years remarketing their
   SEM, Email, and Web Design Services; to date we generated more than
   $180,000 in revenues wholesaling these services.”

• “We also consume GHI’s SEO Services and as a result have had to hire an
  additional inside sales rep to handle the increase of online leads Google and
  GHI’s SEO Services generated.”

Marketing Ad Agency Partner …
• “Their telecom solutions have generated more quality, high profit residual
  income to our business than any product or service we have ever brought to
  the market.”
• “And their SEM Program is generating more than $90,000 per year for us in
  recurring revenues with about 90% of that as bottom line profit.”

  solutions makes him someone you not only want to do business but should
  do business with. His services are great and his value is terrific. Don't just
