About Us

behind the scenes at Ranking Trainer

Our story

Our Founder, Richard Gaustad, started to build Ranking Trainer in 2017 after numerous Affiliates, colleagues, contractors and friends urged him to begin teaching what he knows so other can benefit too.

After 2  years of development, we started actively promoting Membership sales in early 2020 and continue to add new courses, lessons, income platforms and build our community.

Mission Statement

The Dual Mission of Ranking Trainer

First, is to become a widely used and popular online learning platform for people seeking financial independence by using the vast resources of the Internet. 

The second half of our mission is to provide income-producing platforms which enable our Affiliates to jump-start their efforts at earning money online immediately,  as soon as within 24 hours of joining.

Parent Company

Ranking Trainer is a division of Mr. Gaustad’s telecom services, which h started in March 2006. This International telecom service, at the time of this writing (Winter 2020) processes many millions of calls daily and reaches more than 220 countries.

B2B Servivces

Voifone provides various commercial VoIP telecommunications services, including outbound & inbound wholesale VoIP, commercial bulk SMS and commercial CRM which integrates several other services.

B2C Services

B2C means “Bsiness-to-Consumer.” We provide 2 different services for consumers:  Our Membership training platform and Voifone UCS (“Unified Communication System”). Voifone UCS is very similar to WhatsApp, except it has more VoIP features and also pays its users for sharing the app with others who also use it. Incomes can be significant.

Online Income Platforms

Ranking Trainer is different because we have integrated training with our Affiliate program so users can sell both Ranking Trainer memberships and all Voifone services.  Our Affiliate program is capable of providing incomes ranging from part time to full time professional levels (See disclaimer in footer.)

Your Dream. Our Mission.

We Believe Everyone should build an online income

We train our Members to be financially self-sufficient with WordPress and SEO training, YouTube marketing, mobile marketing and our own proprietary Affiliate and Voifone UCS income platforms.

Regardless of age, education, economic status, religion or country of origin, we help our members achieve their financial dreams and goals.

The History Lesson That Inspired Ranking Trainer

The Original HDI Promo Video and Front Page Exoneration Article

Handicapped Distributors, Inc. (HDI) was plagued with wrongful prosecution in 1991.  But the silver lining was that the company’s investors sued the government and the end result was the case was dropped and a front page article in the hometown newspaper of the Founder disclosed that the government never had a case in the first place.  The HDI investors instructed the Founder to re-start the business which he did and the newly restarted company grew to nearly double the original $18M annual revenue to about $30M. The original promo video and article exonerating Mr. Gaustad and the company are  presented here.  This is a great example of the classic story Three Feet From Gold” (a 3-minute read – well worth it) as told in the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napolean Hill.
