I had jury duty today, what a chore. I know it’s my civic duty but in Houston, it’s a tough gig. I got up at 5:00 a.m., left the house at 6:45 and got there at about 7:30. Sit and wait, sit and wait. Finally they released us after spending all morning there. I’m so thankful I didn’t get put on a jury, it’s scares me to death. So then I went and had a great lunch with Brent and now I’m home. Whew! I’m just glad it’s over!
Anyway, the reason I’m posting is I just ran across a new website that’s really going to be a great resource for anyone wanting to learn internet marketing, it’s called “I Will Teach You Internet Marketing” and it’s run by Max Berringer. Max is a 10-year internet veteran and he’s sick and tired of everyone charging so much for internet marketing training.
Max thinks that most of the time when you buy a training product, most of the stuff taught is stuff you already know or is so advanced it scares you. With many of the programs you have to pay hundreds of dollars and quickly get paralyzed and overwhelmed by soooo much info. And other products or membership sites cost so much money and they drip the info to you over months and months and it takes FOREVER to get to the good stuff. And, just between you and me, the reason that it takes so long for the info to drip to you is that the person teaching the information doesn’t even have all the course segments ready when he sells the membership, did you know that? Anyway, it makes for a long course while you wait for info. It’s all just a pain and ever more expensive.
So Max is going to do something about it.
He started a new site at www.iwillteachyouinternetmarketing.com where you will find lessons that teach only what you need to know. Each lesson is one topic only, bite-sized lessons that are easy to read and easy to comprehend. And no lesson costs of $5.00. Yes, that’s right, I didn’t leave off a zero, less than $5.00.
He only has four lessons posted right now but there’s more to come, so stay tuned to the site. And don’t forget to sign-up so you’ll get updates with new lessons. Also, if you sign-up you’ll get a guide on how to install Wordpress and you know what I think about Wordpress…it’s the best!
Yesteday I was reading through my Twitter timeline and @KellyMcCausey posted a link to a fabulous video from which I thought many of you could benefit. It’s a 40-min video where has a chat session with internet icons Frank Kern and John Reese.
Of course, I must say, Tony was definitely a star, the man is a genius. Reese and Kern really didn’t have much to offer but a couple of stories where Tony elaborated as to how and why those stories are a big part of why the two were so successful. I was kind of amazed at how they both appeared to be so small (personality wise) next to Tony who is so charismatic and absolutely larger than life.
This video actually got me so interested in Tony that my husband and I are considering going to Chicago in October to attend his Unleash the Power Within seminar. It will cost us a small fortune but maybe, just maybe, it will give us much more in return.
Your time will not be wasted by watching this video, you don’t even have to opt-in. I didn’t post an affiliate link because hisis through and I’m having a hard time keeping a account. So just click through to watch and learn while Tony explains how your beliefs affect your potential, your potential affects your actions, your actions affect your results, and your results affect and reinforce your beliefs. He explains how this cycle can either end up being a downward spiral or build you up with no limits.
Here’s the full link:
Enjoy as I did!
In a post a couple of months ago I whined and complained about all the email I get during product launches and vowed to only promote ’boutique’ products. Since that time I have done that and stayed away from the ‘big guru’ products. However, sometimes we have to admit we’re wrong and Formula5 is the product that’s making me admit that you can’t always ignore the ‘big guys’. Reason is, this product is going to be fabulous and it would be a disservice to my readers to not tell you about it.
When I first started getting the emails I scanned them and hit delete. But, as always with the big launches, they kept coming. And they became hard to ignore (there’s a lesson in there somewhere, right?). So, last week I clicked through and I signed up. I thought I’d find the same ole search engine optimization information which is good info but, heck, I’ve read it all and I didn’t want to pay for more of the same. Well, I was wrong.
They sent an email where I downloaded a video that was about how to make more money in your business by simply applying five strategies. Five very simple strategies that would double your revenue. I was floored by the level of information they were giving away in the video. And then last night I watched a video by Andy Jenkins about applying three simple little strategies to your business, that you can do right now, and again, I was in awe.
After that I read on their blog that they were having a contest and everyday they were going to give away a Flip Video Camera to the person who applied one of the strategies and made the most money. Today the guy who won increased the price of two items he sells and his sales increase $944 yesterday over what they would have been. That’s $944 for one day’s sales! Now tell me that’s not amazing!
So, I feel it’s my duty to tell you about this launch. Even if you don’t purchase the product, you still need to watch all the videos and learn from them what you can do to increase your revenue almost immediately. They are giving away valuable techniques to increase your business, and you need to pay attention. When I watched the videos, I took notes, you should too.
So click this link now, watch the video on the page and then put your name in the form. You will receive an email confirmation, click the link and confirm. The next email will have a link to download a video, that video is over an hour, so when you have time, with your coffee in the morning or a glass of wine this evening, watch the video with a notepad. Then get to work.
Here’s the link:
In staying with my pledge to promote, review, and recommend the ’boutique’ marketers (see my comment on this post to understand what I mean by boutique) who have great products, I want to introduce you to a new product that I think has been needed for some time now, and quite frankly, I’m really surprised that ClickBank didn’t implement a resource like this long ago. And that product is called ClickBank Bonus Domination by Jeff Czyzewski.
ClickBank is a hub for affiliates to find good products to promote. I promote several products that are sold through ClickBank, many of Jimmy D. Brown’s products are sold through ClickBank and I recommend his products heavily. But there is an inherent problem with promoting ClickBank products and that’s the fact that you don’t have access to the purchaser, heck, you don’t even get an email telling you when you’ve made a sale. If you offer bonuses for purchasing through your link, it’s a nightmare. The customer has to email his receipt to you and you have to email the bonus itself or at least a link to where they can download it. Cumbersome is the best description I can give the process.
Well, that all changes with ClickBank Bonus Domination. This product hasn’t launched yet so I haven’t looked at the software myself, but in viewing the videos, this thing is a dream for anyone who sells products through ClickBank, ESPECIALLY, if you give bonuses for purchasing through your link.
First thing it does is it sends you an email when a sale is made. Yahoo!
Next, there is an auto delivery of your bonuses. The system automatically sends an emails to the customer that includes the customer’s receipt number and a link to a page where you can capture his email address and then deliver the bonus.
On your download page you’re free to do upselling right after the customer has purchased and is in the buying mood. My goodness, this product is amazing. It gives you control of every part of the process and helps you increase your sales and profits exponentially.
Lastly, Jeff is including what he calls the Bonus Domination Blueprint. This is a framework to help you create relevant bonuses for the products you promote. The blueprint covers important concepts of making a good bonus offer and demonstrates how to create killer bonus content that works for any product. I know many of us don’t have or know where to get good content to offer for a bonus, Jeff’s blueprint will help you in that area.
The ClickBank Bonus Domination package won’t exactly be cheap at $197, but if you promote a lot of ClickBank products, the ability to offer a bonus will increase you sales to cover that pretty quickly. And then think about the upsell opportunity along with the backend offers you can make because the customer has opted into your mailing list. Yes, this product should pay for itself very quickly.
I’ve got to give Jeff a hand in figuring out a way to solve all the problems that marketers have with ClickBank. Congrats Jeff!
ClickBank Bonus Domination launches at 12:00 p.m. on January 14th. I’ll post again to remind you. Right now, click through on the following link and view Jeff’s video to learn more about how the product works. You’re going to LOVE it, I do.
OH ~ and I almost forgot, Jeff is only going to sell 2500 memberships to the software (I don’t know why he’s limiting it like that, he can sell way more), so don’t wait around. Affiliate marketers will be scooping this up quickly.
I’ve shared with you in the past that I’m an avid member of Willie Crawford’s “The Internet Marketing Inner Circle” and wrote about my first impressions of the group in my post, “The Internet Marketing Inner Circle-More Treasures Than Expected“.
Today I was reading the TIMIC member’s forum and found a post by Willie where he was sharing with his members a blog post he had written and was giving us permission to post it on our own blogs. I thought it was immensely relevant for a lot of my readers since so many of you are just getting started on the internet.
The post explains the importance of getting help when you’re new to internet marketing and I agree strongly with this information. If you go back through the posts on this site, you’ll see I’ve recommended many products but as of lately, I’ve started to lean more towards those products that are most helpful to those just getting started in internet marketing.
I’ve come to the realization that, as boomers, we may be looking toward retirement and want an extra income stream or maybe, we’re just ready to lead a lifestyle that’s less restrictive than our current 9-5 jobs. Many of us have been so busy raising kids while holding down a career, this is the first time we’ve had a chance to pursue an outside venture, thus, need training and help to get started. Whatever the reason you’re reading this site, I’m going to try to give you the information you need and recommend products and membership sites that are congruent with your needs.
I’m going to replicate Willie’s post here for you to read as I fully agree with what he says. I also highly recommend TIMIC for those that have a little experience on the internet and want to learn and stretch your abilities in regard to internet marketing. I have learned more than I ever imagined and I’ve only been a member for one month, however, this membership isn’t really for the “brand new” internet marketer, it’s a bit more advanced.
If you still don’t know how to set up a website or blog, or you’re struggling to understand “internet marketer speak”, you’re not ready for TIMIC. But if you’ve got all that figured out and are at the point where you need to figure out how to make money, TIMIC is for you.
Note: if you need to learn how to set-up a blog, read my post “Become A Blogger-Fantastic Blogging Training Videos” and my series on Blogging For Money – just click the links. But when you’ve gotten comfortable and are ready to move to the next level, remember TIMIC.
Here’s the post:

Well..Kenneth Yu is at it again and he has a new video for you to watch. This time he’s going to tell you his interesting story about how he has to pay a dowry in order to marry the love of his life. It’s a lovely story about why he’s launching his product.
But that’s not the meat of the video. Kenneth is going to reveal some secrets for getting joint venture partners and connecting with the leaders in your industry by using Twitter. He talks about how associations with the “right” people can leap frog your business to the top because (in his words – that I love) you’re leaping off the shoulders of giants.
In this new video he talks about making connections with these industry giants and understanding their mindset. He calls it the C3 Mindset, basically because the three things in this mindset start with a C. But he goes further and shows you the steps and secrets for making these connections. That is when you will be allowed to enter the inner circle of your industry’s leaders and have doors start to open for you and your business.
Kenneth also made a change to the controls on his video. That was a complaint of mine when I reviewed the product he’s getting ready to launch. Hopefully he will make that correction on the videos in the product before it’s ready to sell.
Lastly, while you’re viewing Kenneth’s video, if you become skeptical of the steps he tells you work, keep in mind that Mark Joyner, who is one of the most successful internet marketers today and author of six books about marketing, sales and copywriting (not to mention all the books he’s co-authored), says this about Kenneth Yu and his concepts:
“Kenneth is a bonafide Twitter genius. His ‘Sparks’ theory alone
will quadruple your results.”
How much you want to bet Kenneth made his connection with Mark Joyner on Twitter?
Anyway, here’s the link to Kenneth’s new video:
If you want to read my review of the product he’s getting ready to launch go to:
Gosh, I feel like all I’ve done is promote products this week. I’m sorry for that but in my day job I’m an accountant and the first ten business days we close the books on the last month’s business. I’ve been so busy at work, I haven’t had time to make good posts, but there were some really good offers made available this week and I wanted to post about them.
I got the notice today that Yaro and Gideon’s Become A Blogger Premium Site is now open for business. I hope I’m not too late in posting but I was at work when it opened.
This is a great new coaching program offered by Yaro Starak and Gideon Shalwick. These two are considered two of the best in the blogging field and make tons of money with their blogs.
You can go to this link to check out the offer:
If you really want to grow your business or make money blogging and are ready to move to the next level, you really should at least read what they have to offer.
Yaro and Gideon seem to know the skill of how to simplify things that many consider complicated and they have put together an amazing online video course based on their very popular Become A Blogger video series.
Remember the fabulous free blogging tutorials I told you about the other day – (here’s the link)?
Well…they’ve already had close to 70,000 downloads of those videos helping people get started on the internet all over the world.
They tell me that inside their new program, you’ll discover (their words, not mine):
- - Clever tricks for getting top search engine results for your blog posts…
- - Exactly how to get images onto your blog in the right format, size and shape…
- - Easy-to-follow instructions for getting streaming audio onto your blog…
- - “Hold-you-by-the-hand” tutorials for producing professional quality videos and getting them onto your blog quick and easy, without any hassle…
- - Powerful content creation techniques for attracting hordes of daily new traffic to your blog…
- - Simple methods for driving multiple streams of highly qualified traffic to your blog…
- - Step-by-step instructions for making a consistent income from your blog using all the latest social media strategies…
- - And Much MUCH more…
Yaro and Gideon have been blogging for quite some time now, so they know what they’re talking about (and they make a lot of money doing it). Yes, Yaro, the “strategy brain” behind this new program, currently makes a six figure income just from blogging.
They didn’t offer me an inside preview of their new site but based on what I’ve seen him do over the last few years, I’m sure you can learn a few things from him.
As with most new programs when they are first launched, there is a tiny bit of time pressure…
That’s why I hope I got this out early enough. For only the first 24 hours, Yaro and Gideon are giving away two very POWERFUL bonus products.
One cuts your online video learning time in half, and the other could make you heaps of cash by following some simple advice from a prominent sales conversion expert.
You only have 24 hours to be eligible for these two bonus products – they will be available until December 5th at 4:00 p.m. EST. Once the time runs out, they’ll remove the bonuses and then you won’t be able to get them any longer… unless of course you want to pay for them.
However, if you happen to see this post after the bonuses are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t get in, just follow the link.
Here’s the link again:
PS: Don’t forget that you only have until 4pm, December 5 to grab the fast action bonuses. If you order after this time, I’m afraid you’ll miss out on these two powerful products.
PPS: Oh, and I almost forgot to let you know…
After exactly one week, the price of this new program increases dramatically. So if you’re the least bit interested, I suggest you make the most of this opportunity while you still can…
A couple of weeks ago in my Cross Blog Conversation with Kelly McCausey, I mentioned that I was getting sick of how the “big guru marketers” treat the people who join their lists. I was ranting about getting 30 emails in a 10 day span with 10 emails coming in one day from the same person. Yeah, my fuse was getting short, but I think putting that down in a post allowed me to have a revelation.
Yeah, it made me realize that I don’t want to promote products by “those” people, you know, the “emailing guru shark squad”. I want my site to be one that reviews and promotes “boutique” products. And what do I mean by “boutique” products? Well, basically, I’m talking about products from new, lesser known, or specialized authors. Authors who supply REALLY GOOD stuff but don’t have the backing of the “big gurus” and thus won’t bombard you with 100 “launch” emails the big guys send week after week. These are authors who fly under the radar but supply information that can really help you grow your business.
You know all the abundance stuff that you read about? The Law of Attraction, The Secret, that kind of stuff? Well, I do believe it works. Not in a magical way, but I do believe that opportunities present themselves to a mind that is filled with thoughts of what it wants. My mind has been filled with making my site a haven for boutique marketers and offering great information from authors that are not as well known.
And in comes Kenneth Yu.
I was on Twitter the other day and I don’t know how we got together but before I knew it he offered to let me review the first module of his new product “The Twitter Salvation System.” I stayed up last night going through the first four videos of the system.
Now, I have to preface this with a little introduction of Kenneth. He’s not what you’d call a traditional marketer. He’s interesting. He’s different. He’s SMART. And his system can help you learn how to use Twitter to sell whatever it is that you sell. You’ll see what I mean about Kenneth when you click over to watch a video he calls “How To Kill Dragons Using A Fly Swatter“.
Actually, his “Fly Swatter” movie is very revealing about what you’ll see in his The Twitter Salvation System. He gives you a broad view of what you need to know to be successful on Twitter.
As for the actual product? Well, he let me see Module 1 only and the full system will have four Modules, so I’ll only be able to comment on 25% of the entire package. It covers the psychology of marketing to people and why Twitter is such a great place to form relationships for your business. In video three, Kenneth gives you very specific information about how to formulate your marketing message and then in video four he gives you nitty gritty details you can use immediately:
- Why the USP (Unique Selling Proposition) Doesn’t Work
- The 7 Deadly Sins of Twitter
- Pimping Your Profile
- How to Write Tweets – The Tweet Checklist
- Your Twitter Bank Account
- Secret Linking Methods
- And More
Kenneth reveals marketing information that I’ve never read in any marketing book before and I’ve spent my entire adult life reading business and marketing books (I don’t read fiction but I read at least one, if not two books a month). His information about why the USP no longer works and what to use instead is brilliant. The specific info he gave in only the first module was unbelievable.
I do have a few critiques however, the presentation isn’t perfect. I don’t know if Kenneth will make changes before he launches, but right now, the video controls (you know, the slider that shows you where you are in the movie) isn’t a good one. It won’t let you push it back a little to repeat something, nor will it let you skip ahead. I accidentally stopped the video and I had to start over. It was pretty irritating. Also it doesn’t tell you how long the video is nor does it show your progress. I like to know what I’m getting into, is it 10 minutes or an hour? I might not have an hour and if that’s the case, I’ll watch later, but I might have 10 minutes and want to watch it now. Without the timing info, you can’t make that kind of decision.
Also, Kenneth is a bit monotone and I would suggest you not watch the videos late at night if you’re the least bit sleepy. It’s hard to “get” everything (not having the ability to repeat makes it twice as hard). Watch at a time of day when you’re fresh and ready to learn, because learn is what you’ll do. I loved the info so much I actually took notes (the pause button works) and I even want to go back and watch a second and maybe a third time. Yeah, it’s a lot of information.
Kenneth’s going to launch his new system at 9:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, December 11th. The Twitter Salvation System will sell for $97. It will include four power-packed modules of four videos each for a total of 16 videos. It will include some bonuses but I’m not sure what they will be yet.
All in all, a fantastic product for anyone who loves Twitter and wants to learn how to use it to promote yourself or your brand, generate leads, find JV opportunities and more…for free using Twitter. I’m proud to recommend Kenneth Yu and his Twitter Salvation System as one of my first “boutique” products.
Here’s the link to his “Fly Swatter” video. Be sure to sign up for the updates for the Twitter Salvation System.
As promised I said I’d post the link to Yaro Starak and Gideon Shalwick’s new FREE report called “The Roadmap To Become A Blogger“. Just click on the link on the name of the report.
My review of the report can be found at my post: Roadmap To Become A Blogger Review
Today I got the email telling me the link was live and Gideon also gave me a ton of information I didn’t know when I wrote the review. That’s probably because, as I said in my review post, I scanned the report. I’m sure I missed a bunch of great information. So, I think it’s appropriate to mention it here and obvious that I should go back and read the report more thoroughly.
First, the report describes the step-by-step “formula” that Yaro Starak used to create his amazingly successful blog. The report also reveals thirteen strategies that will help you make your blog successful. Sorry, I didn’t count them, but there’s a lot of info in there.
Here’s a list of some of the things you’ll find in this report:
- How to ethically exploit the biggest wave in technology since the invention of the telephone…
- How Yaro and Gideon stumbled upon the “X-Factor” for Blogging Success, and how it turned upside down everything they thought they knew about blogging…
- Why not deploying the “X-Factor” in your blog could cause your blog to crash and burn, never to recover…
- 7.4 million reasons why your blog will fail, unless you know how to take advantage of the intersection of two huge Internet trends…
- How a new way of using video, images and a blog turned a penniless actor into an Internet Superstar!
- 13 secret strategies to attract traffic to your blog like bees to a beehive, turn your competitors green with envy and help you make a huge success of your blogging efforts…
Okay, we all know the list is loaded with “sales-speak”, however, basically it’s right. There’s a bunch of information about how you have to stand out by using video and social media distribution. It’s great information for the blogger who wants to be successful.
I talked in my review about how all that scared me because I don’t want to do video, heck, I absolutely HATE to edit the stuff. But at least I know where I stand and what I have to compete with. Maybe it’ll make me realize that I need to do video, I don’t know. At any rate, the report is fantastic and sees into the future. It’s a must read.
Here’s the link again:
UPDATE: Report is now live at The Roadmap To Become A Blogger - GO GET IT NOW!
You can tell Yaro and Gideon of Become A Blogger are not from the United States (they’re from Australia) because I got my pre-release copy of their new free report “The Roadmap To Become A Blogger” at 4:30 on Thanksgiving Day. Of course I was enjoying a day with my family while working on getting a Thanksgiving feast ready for the dinner table and didn’t even know I’d received it until I checked my email the next morning. And then, of course, I had to go shopping with my daughters, so it sat unopened in my email inbox until today.
Quite honestly, I really didn’t have much time to truly read it today either but I did take a quick scan of the 60 some-odd page document. And after spending that time I felt it was necessary to post my review.
NOTE: This report is not yet available – it will be made available on Monday, December 1st. I don’t know what time, but it is free and I will post the link on Monday as soon as I receive it.
I have to say, this report is socked full of information. Actually, it’s information that scares me a bit. Acording to Gideon, who I’m thinking is the person who wrote the report, the days of earning money online by using a traditional blog are gone. Yes, according to him, in order for a person to start a blog today and earn a living with a blog in the traditional manner, with text and words, is past.
In comes the new age of blogging that includes video, audio, images, and social media distribution. He talks about how in order to stand out from the ‘two new blogs that are started every three seconds’, you have to do something different. I have to admit, while reading the report I was starting to feel a little behind the times. However, he makes a great point. If ‘two new blogs are started every three seconds’, how are you supposed to get readers and subsequently buyers for the products you promote?
Well, as scary as the report was for me to read, it not only opened my eyes to the fact that I might need to move further into the future, but it also does a fantastic job of outlining how to get started down the road to making money blogging. The report has five milestones that a new blogger must work through before they are able to make money. Each milestone is explained clearly and realistically. Timeframes for accomplishment are discussed as well as what to do when your plan doesn’t work.
The report, in addition to being insightful, is the one report that comes closest to giving you everything you need to know to get started down the road to making money with blogging. Of course, they don’t tell you everything, it’s still a bit theoritical, the nitty gritty details will be saved for the membership site they’re building up to. For a free report, the amount of great information you receive is fantastic and if you’re a person wanting to make money blogging, taking the time to read this report may save you months of trial and error.
I’ll post the link as soon as it’s available or you can go to Become A Blogger and sign up for the early notification list that will give you access before everyone else.
