I hear this often and get into these conversations, sometimes multiple times each day.
“If everything is available free on the Internet, why would anyone pay for stuff they can find for free?”. I often hear this from business owners and Internet marketers who’re looking at doing a paid prod (more…)
This may come as a surprise to some of you.
Wait for it.
There’s more to the online business than just making money.
So, I often receive questions on my blog, in the forums on social media about how to get more stuff done with a limited amount of time and money.
I probably get many more questions centered around coming up with strat (more…)

As I’m coming back to rebuild my online business after about 2 years of neglect, I’m looking at what I have now.
Since shifting webhosting a couple of times to my current SSD cloud VPS hosting, I’ve lost a number of my product sites along the way.
Part of the rebuilding over the next couple of weeks is to have them up again.
If your sites are down, then you won’t be able to get sa (more…)
Yes, I’ve disappeared from my own blog since about late 2012. No, I didn’t quit the industry or start promoting some weird MLM.
So here’s a breakdown of what I’ve been up to.
2011-2012: Neverblue affiliate manager
I had a good experience working with some of the top affiliates in the industry. Seeing how they systematize their business and scale was a good example of how you can build a business which generate fairly consistent results on a long-term basis. During my time as an AM, I was part of a team which travelled to Bangkok, Thailand, to conduct the first Neverblue Interact event. It was so popular we hosted 200 affiliates over two days.
Also, as part of the development effort, I organized an overnight hacka (more…)
If you’ve been in the Internet marketing game for some time, you might have tried incorporating email marketing into your promotion strategy.
So, here’s what I feel doesn’t work for long-term email promotion – continually sending pitch emails to the list, consisting of messages asking people to buy something. I’m pretty sure most people didn’t join a list so that they’d get ads all day.
Unless you’re sending out massive amounts of email, the promotion is likely to tank, whether it’s for a CPA (cost-per-acquistion/lead generation) offer or a CPS (cost-per-sale) offer.
Eventually the list will burn itself out, with members unsubscribing from (more…)
Back in the day where I used to buy a lot of ebooks, I would be disappointed when a $97 ebook contained just 20 pages. Making each page worth $5? The problem is that it probably could have been condensed into a couple of paragraphs.
And when the books were good, they usually offered a “trick” of some sort, usually a loophole that Google, Squidoo, YouTube had left open.
Depending on when you bought the ebook and how fast you took action, your mileage on being able to generate earnings from the technique would range from a week to a few months.
And that is for the good ebooks. The bad ones would just suck, and some newly-published ones would cover techniques that had died the previous year.
Buying this stuff left a bad taste in my mouth, so I quit (more…)
