first 18 days
The Surprising Power .. #FYP
There is a simple yet not well understood power that everyone should take time to understand. This power is what causes what often appears to be instant success to the marketing of a product, but it is also the power that lies beneath all changes in human consciousness. The power I am talking about is the power of duplication.
The quickest way to grasp the significance of this power is to imagine this scenario.
Suppose someone was to offer you a contract job that would take 31 days to complete. It is a task that is very well suited to your talents and abilities so you will easily complete the job in the 31 days allotted. For your pay, they offer you two proposals, of which you select one as your choice of remuneration for the completed job.
Pay Option One – They pay you "in advance" a sum of $750,000. Cash!
Yes that's correct, "in advance" they pay you three quarters of a million dollars. If you fail to complete the job, of course you will have to pay it all back.
Pay Option Two – They pay you 1 penny for the first day, and then double your daily income every day. They even take time to show you what your pay would be for the first 18 days. They show you the above right chart showing 18 days. Now look at the chart (above right) and see what your income would be for those first 18 days.
Now, you make the choice picking one of the two options.
Knowing now what your pay would be for the first 18 days, just guess what 31 days will bring, or you can collect the $750,000 in advance.
Which pay option would you take?
Take another look at the chart on the above right... you will see that in the first 18 days of option two, your income is a LOT less than the $750,000. of option one.
Most people grab option one without any further thought.
Power of Duplication Creates Man's Progress and Consciousness Change
So what happens after 31 days?
Okay - you have made your choice. Option one or option two for your pay, what's it going to be?
Now jump down and look at the chart at the bottom of the page. OMG look at those numbers.
This demonstrates the power of duplication very well. Network marketers understand this principle but the average persons does not. They doubt or even refuse to believe. This doubt or non belief, will stop most people from joining a network marketing business. They claim "It would never work." The leaders however, forge forward until they develop a good income, all based on the power of duplication.

Use the Power of duplication as this video suggests and change is powerfully good
How do you USE the Power Of Duplication
The Power Of Duplication can be used in many ways. From marketing a product to changing the consciousness of humanity. An example of how the consciousness of humanity does change, just consider how at one time everyone believed the earth to be flat. At the time when a few people first started to believe it possible the earth was not flat but round, imagine trying to convince someone of this fact. It was almost impossible. One might try expanding the mind of a person for hours, days weeks or even years and still they would believe the earth was flat. They believed if you walked far enough, you would fall off the edge of the earth. But today, even children understand the principle that the earth is round very quickly. Consciousness has been changed and mankind grasps the truth that the earth is round very easily. This consciousness shift is true with any principle of change!
So - learning how to use duplication you can initiate change. Even "Musicians" who take advantage of FREE "You Tube" video up loads plus FREE "social networking" sites like Face Book, combined with the power of duplication, can achieve amazing results.
See my story about one such group. “Walk Off The Earth” ... click here! You will enjoy their music as I have linked a few great video clips, The fun and entertainment the band Walk Off The Earth put into their videos helped them develop a strong fan list. These fans/friends on Face Book all shared their newly uploaded video... and the power of duplication made them famous. Read the hub and while you will be entertained, you will see how they achieved over 40 million hits in one month on a particular recent videos... THUS while being thoroughly entertained (I promise you will enjoy the videos) you will get a first hand look at the power of duplication in action - so read and enjoy the fun.
Marketing Gurus are constantly looking for ways to advertise and expose their product line to the public . They develop promotional campaigns, not just to sell a few products, but always with the desire to "reach a tipping point" where the word of mouth from happy customers take over and surpass their own advertising. When marketers hit the magic number, their product line sales will sky rocket. You see, "Duplication of the message became a word of mouth success" How? Through happy customers, each telling their friends of their wonderful purchase. Duplication Works!
If you look at the chart at the bottom of this hub, you will see there is a tipping point that begins around day 21. You see - Once it has duplicated that many times, the doubling effect compounds dramatically, thus reaching larger numbers so fast it appears an almost instant success.
The same happens to mankind's consciousness. This song Think About Every Thing! should get you thinking about all the crazy ways the power of duplication works. Enjoy the tune as you read the rest of this hub.
Okay - now you're thinking! As new (often obscure) ideas are slowly adopted by a few... and they share it with others, there comes a point that is a tipping point. At that tipping point, the conscious idea that was at first crazy, will now explode and many people will adopt the new idea.
Note - "Always," the initial people who start any new trend of thought, are considered crazy. Just like the first people to believe the earth was round were considered crazy
"See Thrivalism" ... Building a better world requires a complete paradigm shift from all political and monetary models we have used up to today. A complete new system needs to be designed. "Thrivalism" is a doable concept
Therefore - I say “Here's to the crazy ones".
"Some people call them the crazy ones. The Misfits. The Rebels. Th trouble makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can not do is ignore them. Because they change things, they push the human race forward. While some may call them the crazy ones – we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do” ...... Apple Quote .. Steve Jobs.
So - How do they do it? They USE the Power Of Duplication.
Better yet! How can YOU make a change? Look to the power of duplication for the answer.
How can we Pioneer The Next Economy? "See Thrivalism"
How can we save the middle class? "See Thrivalism"
How can you make a greater difference to the world? Why not become a crazy one, then both understand, and apply, the power of duplication.
We The People
Did you Listen to Marija Sing "Think"
See "Thrivalism" - Link Above
By using the power of Duplication - you will be "Stronger Now"
Only a few people needed to change anything in the world
I wrote this hub for you . The power of duplication should be understood by all! "All This For You" again by Marija... please share this hub!
Make sure you share this story with your networking Friends and Partners.... also share it with anyone who is in sales or marketing of any type.... they will thank you for it!

Giovanna - it works.... and yes the magic lies in three things - Followers, Timing and content. Thanks for your help.
Giovanna from UK on April 30, 2015:
I have tried and tried - this duplication/viral thing is much harder than it sounds. I've no doubt that it works - but it ain't working for me :( Could it be that people only share what's good??? I think I'd better think it out again... shared! ~ Thumbs up :)
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on March 03, 2015:
Blond Logic - Thanks so much for your words and your support. I agree - not enough people really understand the power behind this simple information. Thanks again
Mary Wickison from Brazil on March 02, 2015:
This is very useful. In an age when we all want to go viral, this shows that it is possible we just need to get to that tipping point.
Sharing this one.

Thanks Rajan.... we the people have more power than we may realize. Cheers
Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on July 21, 2013:
What a fantastic hub! And what a way to show the power of duplication.
Voted up and awesome!
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on July 04, 2013:
LOL - I'm number one! No idea how dropped that much - it dropped when I was more active too. Number one is fine with me as long as my hits remain.
Cassandra Mantis from UK and Nerujenia on July 02, 2013:
Cheers Neil! Need that score to rise up! You're a great writer and hubber!
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on July 01, 2013:
Cassy - Thank you very much :-) .......... you're the best! Hugs
Cassandra Mantis from UK and Nerujenia on June 30, 2013:
Awesome hub, Neil. I just tweeted this for you. Numbers can't lie. Excellent!
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on June 19, 2013:
midget - thanks so much for sharing..... you are correct... shared for good not bad.... if everyone learned how powerful it is -- we would all make being happy our number one goal and to share happiness with others our number two goal...... then other goals would fall into place naturally for the good of all along with our personal pleasure. Be Happy!
Michelle Liew from Singapore on June 18, 2013:

J.Dunning - Glad you appreciated the hub. Thanks for taking time to comment!... Cheers
j. Dunning on March 09, 2013:
Hey Neil, Thanks for the post. There's a lot of great info in here. You covered it exceptionally well.
I absolutely love this concept with the thought of website traffic.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on December 10, 2012:
G'Day Mr Gareth Pritchard
LOL I recognized the fact you were playing with words and enjoyed the fun poking and bantering. Funny thing it is, watching people as you state run around saying "nice hub" but display not even a glimpse of understanding of what was written. I suspect a great number of readers that leave no comment, are the ones who actually do read what is said with open minds or hearts. I'm always delighted to meet someone who is real and you my friend are that! Thanks for being you!
Gareth Pritchard from North Wales on December 10, 2012:
I have got to tell you the truth, I love the power of duplication and after all I wouldn't exist without it or any of us. I just get bored with saying nice hub, great info. I am not impressed very much with comments like that and yes I know it's not nice to not appreciate those kinds of comments because real people make them. I play devils advocate too much probably but I like to see what's behind the curtain. Do people really know their stuff and believe it or are they just spinning other people content. Which most of the time we are all doing really anyway because original thought is very hard to have or find and sometimes difficult to recognize because it's original.
You are a genuine guy Mr Sperling, I am pretty pleased with this chance encounter and your taste in music isn't that bad if you like The-MasterBakers, especially "Too Late" I might dig out "I did it" for you if I can.
Thanks for being around Mr Sperling, Gareth, a BogStandard human being.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on December 08, 2012:
Gareth - glad you got a chuckle and popped back... thumbs up to you and a ^5 as well.
Draw on... keep smiling! Thanks again my friend
Gareth Pritchard from North Wales on December 08, 2012:
Ha, ha, OK so there is some form of duplication involved but it is not like it looks on paper that's for sure, Hubpages has been a great help along with YouTube and others, who make the whole thing possible , duplication as well.
Thanks to you too, it was worth it.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on December 08, 2012:
Gareth - LOL loved your comment. It is true duplication works EASY on paper... but I assure you it DOES work in reality as well... it is all part of the changes in the universe you speak of. I love most music.. do not like RAP nor can I get into Heavy Metal.... MasterBakers are good too. I Found one of your videos "how to draw a gun" "Too Late"
So let me ask you - how did that video obtain 6000 views if duplication was not working?
Thanks for reading and taking time to comment.
Gareth Pritchard from North Wales on December 07, 2012:
No is a stop word so I will say this.
It all looks great on paper, just like the multi level marketing ideas it comes from, that I recognized instantly from looking at the page and reading the title. I will tell you a truth that you will probably recognized. If you are told to do something you will very likely not do it because you are being told to do it, if you do it you will probably do it your own way not the way you are told. You might do it exactly as you are told but not many other people will do. Human beings are fickle creatures to say the least. Duplication always looks good on paper that's why the marketers use it but the reality isn't the same as the theory.
Now I am going to tell you that human beings are really very easily influenced, which contradicts what I have just said in some ways, but they like to copy, which is different than being told and not all of them do all things. The problem is they are influenced by 5 senses, perhaps even more and they all interpret that information in as many different ways as the different people interpreting them. That is because their minds have been influenced from before birth by a whole myriad of internal, external, environmental, psychological influences. So many that no two could be the same and three impossible. That is why duplication will only work on paper because it does not have to contend with all these influences that human beings do.
All marketing is only at the very most a variation of the truth.
The only truth that I have been able to find in the whole universe is everything changes, so truth it is only true until it changes. Which can happen at any time in an infinite passage of potential time.
I like your optimism but I don't like your taste in music. I like The-MasterBakers but I don't expect you to like them and why should you?
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on September 13, 2012:
MsDora - So nicce you took time to read and comment.... much appreciated. I find the coolest thing, is how it is used to elevate mans consciousness. It is happening as we speak! Thanks again!
Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on September 13, 2012:
You're right. It's simple, but we don't recognize it, let alone use it. Thanks for the lesson. Voted Up and Useful.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on August 02, 2012:
Someone asked - "What would you do if you were invisible for one day?"
I replied " In truth -- to many of us are already invisible..... we cower from our own greatness and hide from what we could become if we would only step out of our quiet shell and meet ourselves, our true potential, and make that which is found within, fully known!"
The power of duplication is also found in personal growth!
An AYM on July 09, 2012:
Hmm. Maybe I'll try that on one of my professors next time I get a math problem wrong. Cheerio.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on July 09, 2012:
An AYM - I enjoyed your comment. Thanks for taking time to read and comment. Drop by and read it again some time, you will find more gems hidden in the message when your cup is empty. Cheers my friend!
An AYM on July 08, 2012:
I don't mean this comment to be rude, but this strikes me as a lot of excited and fancy language without any actual application.
This might be a silly metaphor, but it's the only one that comes to mind with the message I mean. The cells in our hearts have intercalated discs, which allow them to communicate the electrical impulse as though they were more like one entity, rather than a conglomeration of cells. That electricity can then leap at high speed, cell to cell, doing its work.
We are like little cells in the organ of society, but we have no intercalated discs. It's a mind-boggling world to imagine that it's just what people do with something they like - everyone runs off to tell two people?
And what drives anyone to pass a message along? That interest is garnered either through quality, or for a fleeting moment through an eye-catching display before we walk away. What you're saying is "All you need is to be astoundingly talented to earn justified attention" or "All you need is a big enough facade to pull in enough attention before they realize this doesn't warrant attention".
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on July 03, 2012:
molometer - thanks for taking time to read and comment. Glad you found it interesting!
Micheal from United Kingdom on July 03, 2012:
Nice work Neil, quite interesting results.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on June 24, 2012:
pagesvoice - glad you liked it! Yes MLM is one place it is drilled into people, yet people in general miss the main point of learning this system.. it is WAY WAY more that a way to build a business and sell a product. It is the way mankind makes change in consciousness, and even the way an individual can grow. Glad you enjoyed this and thank you for dropping by... hope you shared the link with your downline. Thanks again!
Dennis L. Page from New York/Pennsylvania border on June 24, 2012:
Voted up, useful and interesting. For those of us who have been involved in marketing we know the system of duplication well. It was drummed into our heads in sales meeting after sales meeting. The system does work, but the salesperson has to believe in their product or else it is all for naught. Positive attitudes and attitudes of gratitude are great qualities to duplicate and that is why so many subscribe to the philosophy of sticking with winners and shying away from negative energy. This was a well thought out and presented article my friend.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on June 17, 2012:
abentley - you bet... duplication is everywhere.... what I am amazed the most about is the way consciousness of mankind as a whole shifts through this process.... Thanks for taking time to read and comment.
abentley from California on June 17, 2012:
The way you have expressed is really appreciable. About duplicity I would like to add that duplication is the way the life begins, we all are some way the duplicates of what our parent are. We are developed by the the duplication of the genetical structures in our parents.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on June 14, 2012:
Dr Funom Makama - I'm delighted to read your comment. I love the almost magic behind the power of duplication. From marketing to shifts in global consciousness of mankind one can witness the power of duplication at work.
Thanks so much for taking the time to re-read and comment.

Cathy Nerujen from Edge of Reality and Known Space on May 18, 2012:
This is a great Hub, Neil. Wow, numbers can be so amazing. What an unusual topic for a hub. Yes, the song is nice too. :)
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on May 09, 2012:
James - Thanks for the praise. :-)
Only thing I can "guess" as the reason for the low hub score is I log on a few time4s a day to check for comments... and don't do much else. Time is pressing at the moment... so i don't get around to enough hubs and comment, not have I written much for a while.
The score matters not - my hits are stable and google brings most of them.
Thanks again James - glad you liked the song.
James A Watkins from Chicago on May 08, 2012:
Excellent hub man! I love that song too.
How come your Author Score is "5?" I didn't know there was such a thing.

Credence2 - So glad you found it a source for encouragement... I've worked MLM in the past and know how big of a challenge it is to open the minds of prospects. you are 110% correct "keep positive and never be discouraged." I was doing well in my MLM - then came a bad divorce LMAO. All said and done this information I used to open the minds of prospects - send your prospects to read this on their own time before you meet with them. It might help you win more partners.... also send your down line here for added training. Credence2 - thanks so much for sharing!!!!!
ps - if you took this through the whole year - not just 31 days - it would be in the trillions of trillions... 31 days is already over 10 million LOL -- totally amazing!
Credence2 from Florida (Space Coast) on March 09, 2012:
Hello, Neil, if I took the power of duplication through the entire calendar I would end up with compensation in the millions. The problem of the downhill snowball is just getting it started. I have been involved in network marketing and the numbers are staggering, it just takes a lot of hard work and patience before you can obtain the self replication money making machine sought by so many of us. People have to remember its a numbers game and not be discouraged, but rely on the law of probabilities, every good salesman does. I am always looking to improve in this area and your article has been a source of encouragement. thanks Cred2

Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on March 05, 2012:
Stressily - Thanks for dropping by and giving me such a great idea. I appreciate your support and your valuable comments.
Nellieanna Hay from TEXAS on March 05, 2012:
Thank you, Neil. I appreciate your emphasis on using these statistical facts for beneficial ends such as pumping up the economy. It's also wise to be aware of and alert to misuse of them by people lacking a spirit of goodwill. Just a thought.
Of course - Just thinking out of the box about possibilities of innovative ideas - even thinking of them originally - advances our species.
stessily on March 05, 2012:
Neil, Well presented. It would be interesting for you to write additional hubs on this topic illustrating the influence of this concept on personal life. The 21-day "tipping point", alas, seems so far off for those impatient for change; if only they knew how relative time really is.
Neil Sperling (author) from Port Dover Ontario Canada on March 04, 2012:
Nellieanna - you have understood my point - The main deeper message now is to USE this power to bring about the changes needed in both your personal life and influence needed changes in the world.
Nellieanna Hay from TEXAS on March 04, 2012:
This is impressive, Neil. Amazing. You make the point dramatically.
That's just for duplication. Then consider the multiplication factor we encounter constantly online! We're sent something and instructed to send either a copy of that or actual items to a number of others with the same instructions. The number could range from 2 to 'everyone on your mailing list' - -. Of course, if it is 2, it amounts to duplication in multiples. but why stop at that? - seems to be the rule. This little chart illustrates what multiplying each iteration by 10 would do in 10 iterations though there would be no limit on the iterations. . It is a bit scary. Wouldn't take many to cover the globe!
An item could be a chain letter, a forwardable email, a joke, currency, a teddy bear, a secret, gossip, a tip, 'inside information' - etc, etc. . .
i person sent one item to 10=10
each of 10 sent 1 item to 10 = 100
each of 100 sent 1 item to 10 = 1000
each of 1000 sent 1 item to 10 = 10,000
each of 10,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 100,000
each of 100,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 1,000,000
each of 1,000,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 10,000,000
each of 10,000,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 100,000,000
each of 100,000,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 1,000,000,000
each of 1,000,000,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 10,000,000,000
each of 10,000,000,000 sent 1 item to 10 = 100,000,000,000
