Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities, Financial Statements and Exhibits

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities
On August 25, 2008, Future Now Group, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a securities purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with Alan Hall, a member of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Buyer"), pursuant to which the Company sold 555,556 shares of the Company's common stock, $0.001 par value (the "Shares"), and (ii) warrants to purchase 277,778 shares of the Company's common stock (the "Warrants," and together with the Shares, the "Securities"), to the Buyer at a purchase price of $0.18 per share for total proceeds of $100,000.

The Warrants have an exercise price of $0.36 per share (the "Exercise Price"). The Warrants may be exercised at any time on or after the issuance date for a period of five (5) years. The Exercise Price may be adjusted upon stock dividends, stock splits, subsequent equity sales by the Company, pro rata distributions among the Company's existing shareholders, the Company's undertaking a fundamental transaction, (as such term is defined in the Warrant) or voluntarily at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors.

The issuance of the Securities pursuant to the Purchase Agreement is exempt from the registration requirements under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. Specifically, the sale of the Securities is expected to be exempt in reliance upon Rule 506 of Regulation D under the Securities Act because, among other things, the Securities will only be issued to an "accredited investor" as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act.

A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

Here is their latest PR from january 15/09

FAIRFIELD, CT, Jan 15, 2009 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- FutureNow Group, Inc. (FUTR, Trade ) ("FutureNow") announced today that its web-based subscription software-as-a-service, OnTarget(TM), has completed its beta release and is in full production. FutureNow's business model has recently been expanded to include sales of OnTarget subscriptions and associated professional services.

OnTarget monitors client websites 24/7, uncovers the reasons site visitors fail to buy, register, or become a lead, and then provides specific recommendations for clients to implement in order to keep their goals on target. OnTarget(TM) is unique among Internet marketing optimization tools in that it doesn't simply provide more data or reports. OnTarget(TM) delivers actionable recommendations based on the client's available time and resources so that clients are able to improve their online results continuously.

Ryan Wintle, VP Products for FutureNow, said, "We performed even better than we expected. During the OnTarget beta, 43 accounts were activated, including several clients who had more than 1,000,000 page views per month, over 500,000 visits per month, and 200,000 emails generated per month. It's good to demonstrate that we can scale both the technology and the processes."

Bryan Eisenberg, EVP of FutureNow, said, "Client results from OnTarget are excellent. The feedback from our beta program has been strong because clients are executing on our recommendations more frequently than ever. Let me tell you about only a few recent wins:


-- One of our retailers increased their conversion rate by 59.3%
resulting in a financial impact of more than $70,000 per month
-- We optimized a checkout page to increase the conversion rate by 6.25%,
leading to $150,000 additional revenue annually
-- One of our online jewelry retailers increased overall website sales
conversion rate from 3% to 7%, a total lift of 133% in just a three month
time period




"
Jeffrey Eisenberg, CEO of FutureNow, said, "FutureNow is excited about the many potential partners who have so quickly expressed interest in OnTarget before we even announced completion of our beta program. We are in discussions with many of them to roll out a formal partner program and expect it to launch this quarter."

FAIRFIELD, CT--(MARKET WIRE)--Dec 16, 2008 -- FutureNow Group, Inc. (OTC BB:FUTR.OB - News) ("FutureNow") announced today that it is releasing a beta of OnTarget(TM) just-in-time-optimization software. OnTarget(TM) is Internet marketing optimization software-as-a-service that FutureNow developed to help clients keep their revenue goals on target; it measures and analyzes their actual web traffic; compares the actual traffic against the plan; then unlike any other service available, it doesn't just provide data to be analyzed but rather it delivers ongoing proven conversion rate improvement recommendations in order to improve the financial results of Internet marketing.
ADVERTISEMENT


Up until now the optimization market has been open mostly to larger companies with large budgets for both the software as well as the personnel to run and interpret the software, OnTarget changes everything. OnTarget allows companies of any size to improve their conversion rates and subsequently their financial results. It also allows users the choice of how quickly the recommendations are implemented. It also permits the user to dial back the costs to any budget and accelerate the benefits as their financial budgets allow. OnTarget subscriptions start as low as $1,000 per month, so clients don't need to have a conversion rate expert on staff or on retainer, allowing you to optimize more profitably. "Of course, if they have an in-house expert or a larger optimization team then higher service levels of the OnTarget program can help them too," added Jeffrey Eisenberg, CEO of FutureNow.

William Schloth, FutureNow's CFO, said, "We are pleased to be coming to market with our software-as-a-service product offering. This expands our addressable market to medium and even small businesses. OnTarget offers a compelling value to a large segment of companies that couldn't afford our consulting model before. Now even smaller companies can increase the return on investment from their marketing spend. Offering a low-price high margin software-as-a-service service to a mass market is an important change in our business model. " Mr. Schloth went on to say, "With this offering we can also capitalize on new high-margin revenue channels including reseller agreements, international licensing and integration with other service providers."

Bryan Eisenberg, EVP of FutureNow, explains: "With OnTarget FutureNow's clients get the benefit of analysis without hiring an analyst. It is better than simply analysis. Clients tell us what resources they have available to implement change so they don't get recommendations that waste time or resources. OnTarget is more than software. Clients get expertly prioritized recommendations that are based on Persuasion Architecture methodologies for web analytics analysis, segmentation analysis, path analysis, content tagging analysis, a/b & multivariate testing, usability testing, and voice-of-customer analysis. Over time we help our clients develop deep customer insights so they can improve their customer experience and increase profits."

Jeffrey Eisenberg, CEO of FutureNow, said, "Our marketing has barely started but sales and sales prospects are exceeding our expectations. In March Independent Sales Agents will start to sell for the first time. We attracted so many potential channel partners even before completion of our beta program that we put them all on hold. However, many of these early companies will be part of the first wave of our new partner program that we are launching in late March. We expect to open the partner program up again by May."

Just normal trading here today imo. Profit takers stepped in just below .06 resistance on the run up to .058. Premature imo but healthy trading none the less. Break of .06 sends this one easily to .10 area again imo. Still maintaining nice MA support below and have yet to make a lower low on RSI's which keeps the uptrend in tact. Chalk it up to normal profit taking on a UGLY market day. Nothing more nothing less. Still looking healthy.

The Mississauga, Ontario, sleep emporium prides itself on customer service, offering expert consultation, competitive prices, free delivery and set-up and a 60-day free trial of any product in the store. He brought in consulting firm FutureNow, Inc. to help him identify what to test and to set up test versions of the Mattress Liquidators landing page and run them through Website Optimizer to see which pages generated the most response. FutureNow, Inc. set up Google Website Optimizer to test a variety of landing pages with the use of Website Optimizer has boosted online leads 5,000%.

Sample 2: Driving more visitors offline

Leo Schachter Diamonds is among the largest wholesalers of better quality diamonds. The company is well represented from the windows of the most elegant shops on Fifth Avenue to the fashionable boutiques of Rodeo Drive to the jewelers who adorn the highest social circles in London, Paris and Italy. Only within the last few years, however, has Leo Schachter introduced diamonds that bear the company name.

Sample 4: Increasing top line sales with a conversion assessment

Overstock.com is one of the Internet Retailers top retailers. They came to us for a conversion assessment but made one change based on one of our recommendations and it had a significant impact to the bottom line.
“I asked Bryan and Jeffrey Eisenberg to do a study of our web site and give us his results within 6 weeks. Within 8 hours they called to say they had found something we had to fix immediately, a hole through which we were losing 5% of our traffic. We fixed it that night and saw an immediate 5% lift in our sales. I have spent five and a half years in this game: The Eisenbergs are #1 in this game, and there is no #2."
Patrick Byrne CEO, Overstock.com

Sample 5: Decreasing Shopping Cart Abandonment

CafePress empowers individuals, organizations and businesses to create, buy and sell customized merchandise online using the company's unique print-on-demand and ecommerce services.

Sample 8: Driving more resume completions

Allegis Group's Thingamajob site, a $3 billion staffing firm (one of the world's largest), came to us with the objective of increasing conversion rates from visitor to resume submission by 20% in one year. Our initial remedial steps resulted in an increase over 80% in three months. After they launched version 2.0 of their site using Persuasion Architecture® to a site redesign their conversion rate went up 265%.

Sample 9: Increasing customer conversion rate

Magmall.com, in 1999 a struggling dot com retailer of magazine subscriptions, is now a successful B2B and B2C marketer. When they engaged us their conversion rate was 1.21% and in the first year it went to a conversion rate of 4.93%.

Sample 10: Providing a framework to accelerate conversion rate optimization

Internet Order, this startup engaged us to consult on their customer acquisition campaign shortly after having launched their site with a 0.25% sales conversion rate.

Sample 14: Training a whole staff on conversion rate optimization

LowerMyBills, a multimillion dollar B2C company offering consumers alternatives to offer savings on services, engaged us to work on one of their channels, and subsequently brought us in to train the entire company on conversion rate marketing.

Sample 15: Converting more visitors in to sales

The Perth Mint, an Australian government precious metal mint and marketing company, originally approached us to assess their current conversion process, they subsequently engaged us to assess their email campaigns and assist them in redesigning their site. The results, while not made public, allowed their key decision maker to start his own consulting company with The Perth Mint as his first client.
Shifting the Membership/Newsletter signup to the top right hand corner in the shop has made a huge difference. Also, the way we've done it, with benefits on both sides, seems to have increased successful sign up rates as well.
Mark Garner, The Perth Mint

This is becoming one of my favorite stocks. Looks like we have officially killed the down trend by closing above the down trend line today. Peeked over that .06 resistance as well with indicators showing break out likely tomorrow. This should be fun.

Jeffrey Eisenberg, CEO of FutureNow, said, "Our marketing has barely started but sales and sales prospects are exceeding our expectations. In March Independent Sales Agents will start to sell for the first time. We attracted so many potential channel partners even before completion of our beta program that we put them all on hold. However, many of these early companies will be part of the first wave of our new partner program that we are launching in late March. We expect to open the partner program up again by May."
