Are You Ignoring 80% Of Your Market?
Why You Should Be Reaching Out Across The Globe!

Did you know that by mid-year of 2008, the worldwide number of Internet users had grown to more than 1.46 BILLION people, with the total amount spent online estimated to grow to $263 billion by 2010 from $170 billion last year!?

With those figures in mind, consider that although the U.S. led the pack as of July '08 for the percentage of its population online (73.6%), that number still constitutes only 17% (and shrinking) of Web surfers worldwide—a fairly small segment of online users!

The true current and future online growth is and will be in the world's most populous countries, such as China, India, Brazil, Russia and Indonesia. In fact, the Asian continent ranks first worldwide for the number of Internet users—578 MILLION and growing. Moreover, since 2000, Africa and the Middle East have witnessed what can only be described as a phenomenal increase of online users: a cumulative, eight-year 1,031.2 % and 1,176.8 % growth rate, respectively!

Not coincidentally, we've also seen a dramatic increase in new SFI affiliates from these same regions coming in the door, with India, Indonesia, Philippines, Pakistan, Maylasia, and China all in the top 10!
