First, decide what role you want with us, Customer, Affiliate or Both?

  • Customer:  Customers do business with us by paying tuition for courses, buying the Add-On services, using our Web Hosting services for their websites, etc.  You register by making a purchase in the Store.  Point to the “Store” menu item (top of page), then click on “Shop”. Decide what you wish to purchase and on the Check Out page, you will either log in as a returning customer or enter your details to become a customer.
  • Affiliate:  Affiliates earn commissions and bonuses by referring paying customers to us.  They can also create a sales management role for themselves by recruiting other Affiliates in our MLM system.  When their Affiliates refer paying customers, they are paid bonuses on the purchases of those Customers.    To register as an Affiliate, just purchase any product in our Affiliate Program Category from the online store.  You will be automatically registered filling the dual role of Customer and Affiliate.  Affiliate status also provides you full access to your Back Office to track and receive your income, plus your own customizable website to promote your Affiliate business.

No.  Of course, it’s obvious that the faster your Internet connection, the less time you spend waiting for pages to load, uploads and downloads of data. But there is no specification as to Internet speed required to take our course.  The only requirement is that you have access to the Internet because all materials and Information are delivered through the Internet and . . .well . . . the whole point of teaching people to make money online is that they have access to an Internet connection to do so.

Yes. . .if you register as an Affiliate!  Affiliates are paid a percentage of whatever is paid by the Customers they refer.  See the “Learn More” section under the Affiliate menu for details.

We provide a ticket-based system for answering questions.  Those who have paid their course fees enjoy premium support and highest priority for answering questions and resolving issues.

No. We produce copyrighted material which may not be reproduced or shared without our specific written consent.

Voifone is a Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (“VoIP”) International telecom service.  Ranking Trainer was developed as the result of Voifone Affiliates/Associates in past years who requested training to locate new customers through the Internet. Ranking Trainer was developed by Richard Gaustad for Voifone Carrier, Inc. for the purpose of training an “army” of online marketing experts to help market their multitude of services. Ranking Trainer is the official marketing arm of those services, but has also taken on a life of its own. There is no requirement for Ranking Trainer Affiliates to market and sell Voifone Carrier, Inc.’s products.  But of course, we hope ALL our Customers and Affiliates see the value in the Voifone suite of services and wish to use and sell them!

Internet Technology changes continually. We are constantly updating, modifying and/or adding to our courses to stay current with the latest technology. Also, we’ll periodically offer information, learning materials and/or new tools to our active Ranking Trainer Members with additional courses, graduate studies, private blog articles from experts in pertinent fields and build a community of active part-timers who love this technology, yet are not techno-professionals. Ongoing membership fees help sustain this continuing effort to keep you on top of all-things-IT.

The time for each lesson is variable. Lessons are pre-recorded as streaming video content and normally have one or more accompanying downloadable elements such as a PDF or slide show.  Lessons are designed to last between 20 and 45 minutes each but can be shorter or longer depending on the subject matter. Most lessons require you to do some work on your own before you advance to the next lesson.  We deliver lessons via email containing a link once each week.

YES! Everyone taking our course can begin earning money the very first day they register as an Affiliate.  In fact, the first lesson contains specific instructions about how to “earn while you learn.”  We know that many people taking our course want to start profiting from it as soon as “yesterday”.   Fortunately, you really CAN make money immediately when you start by following a set of simple instructions together with the tools you’ll get from us. We have specific instructions in the first lesson focused on helping you earn money shortly after starting, as soon as your first day.  Just like any entrepreneurial endeavor, earning money requires an investment of time, effort and sometimes a little money on your part (*no additional money required for “first-day” earnings).  We’ll provide the specific tools and instructions that allow you to INSTANTLY start making money.   You’ll also get a multitude of Add-On tools (services & software) during the 16-week course to enhance your earning capacity now and for as long as you want.

No.  Of course debit and credit cards are the most common form of payment online and are by far the most convenient. But we realize some people do not have these conveniences and yet still need to learn. Therefore we accept virtually all forms of payment including cash, Western Union, Money Gram, Bank Cashier’s Checks, PayPal and Bank Wires.

Submit a ticket and use the downloadable content until it is resolved.

“Ranking” refers to the order in which your website appears in natural search results through Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines.  “Trainer” of course means that we teach you what you must know to increase your rank.  A “high” rank would be the 1st, 2nd or 3rd search result seen for any given search word or phrase. The goal is to be as high as possible on the first page of Google and other search engines. Most people reading this will realize that they RARELY look past the first page of search results. This is true “en masse”.

Refer them!  Sign them up! Quick! Hurry!  But make sure you’re registered as an Affiliate first, have your own Ranking Trainer website, and are entitled to your commissions and downline bonuses.  (We’re glad you asked!)  

Yes! We offer testing after you complete the 16-week course, and if you pass you will receive a certificate worthy of framing, signed by the Directors of the Company.  We are not accredited by any governmental or other body, nor do we intend to seek any such accreditation.  The certificate you earn constitutes written proof that you have taken our course and have learned the information we have taught.  Many private firms and organizations do the same. For instance Microsoft issues certificates like the MCSE attesting to skill and knowledge of their networking systems, Cisco Systems does the same with their CNE designation, countless automotive and machinery makers train, test certify and re-certify people regarding the use of their equipment.  By testing and certifying those who take our proprietary course, we engage in this same commercial practice. Testing and certification is not mandatory. However, for colleagues, customers or even employers, our Certificate may be useful to you as evidence you have learned our concept and system.  Of course the best evidence is “you” and what you do with your new knowledge and skill. We, like other companies who test for competency, charge a fee for testing.  You may pay your certification testing fee after taking the course, or receive a discount if you pay with your tuition.

No.  We are a private company that provides testing and a signed certificate for Gold and Platinum Members who pass our own, private competency test.  We believe in the “accreditation” of the free marketplace.  We do not attempt to meet any government-issued accreditation standards anywhere in the world.  Instead, we hold to our own high standards of performance.

The competence of each Gold or Platinum Member as a Systems Analyst, whether they take and pass our test or not, is its OWN certification.  We follow the same tradition as countless other private companies who test and certify individuals who learn and gain proficiency that company’s products and/or services. Some examples include Microsoft (MCSE – Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer); Cisco Systems (CNE – Cisco Network Engineer); GM (General Motors – Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification). . . and there are countless others.

No, not really.  This course is geared for beginners but even those who are advanced and Internet marketing professionals will find value in our course.  You need to have access to the Internet, a computer and a burning desire to know how to make money online.  You also must know how to use a browser and search the Internet; some skill using a keyboard is helpful.

Yes, of course!  We encourage and promote working from home and LEARNING from home.  The whole point to this type of training is that it is convenient and can be done on YOUR schedule, not ours.  This is a prime reason we do NOT conduct many “live” sessions but instead, focus on creating quality materials for streaming video, audio or downloadable content.

No.  Any of the major Internet browsers work just fine, such as Microsoft Explorer or Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Apple Safari and others.  Everyone has their favorite browser.  You will use a variety of resources.  All content is delivered through browsers. We suggest any of the largest browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge/Explorer or Safari).  Others will work too.

Submit a ticket so we can help resolve the issue.  You can also download the corresponding PDF and/or other content. We provide the same information as in the video in downloadable format specifically because we know some people have very slow or inadequate Internet connections for streaming video.  Nonetheless, it is STILL possible to earn money online even if you get your connection from the local library. (Believe it or not, some of our development work was done by a programmer at the public library in London, England . . .he was down on his luck at that time and we provided much-needed income for him. He didn’t even OWN a computer, yet he was a very good engineer . . .PROOF that people with DESIRE, can certainly make money online regardless of their circumstance.)

Yes, in fact you can do MORE than repeat. As we update and add more lessons to this course, you’re entitled to them as an active Ranking Trainer Member. Once you have paid your fee (and assuming you maintain an active membership through monthly subscription), you are entitled to permanent access to our course materials and all updates without paying for the course again. If you discontinue your subscription, you may re-start at any time to regain full access. New material is always being produced to keep up with current technology. We encourage all Members to stay active to stay on the cutting edge of this technology.

No. Just like school lessons and courses, these lessons require you to do some work, practice or additional study before the next one. Also, they are provided in a specific order for a reason, placing pre-requisite information first, followed by additional information. Studying out of order is likely to cause confusion especially for those who are unfamiliar with technology. (*NOTE: We are currently studying this issue and may release a pilot program in 2018 which allows self-paced learning in which the student can test after each lesson and receive the next one upon passing the test, then receive their Certificate upon successful completion. If we implement this new system in 2018, we will announce it to all Members, Customers and the public when and if this change goes into effect.)

Yes. From time to time, on an irregular schedule, the Founder of the Company and/or his invited guest presenters will hold special sessions which can be attended by those who are currently enrolled and registered for our Modular Marketing course.  However, because we cater to students worldwide in nearly every time zone, experience has shown it is very difficult to find times for “live” sessions in which a majority of our Members can attend regardless of advance notification and scheduling. Live sessions will be recorded and available for those who miss the sessions.
