Best Wishes This Holiday Season

On the off chance you’re spending part of your Christmas Day in front of a computer, or have just finished lighting your Hanukkah Candles, or just spending some quality time with your family, I wanted to wish you the very Happiest of Holidays and wishes for a prosperous new year.

Chances are, you first heard of me because of a webinar you were invited to attend. You know, the one about Six Simple Sales Page secrets.

During that webinar, I told a story about how I always look for marketing lesson…and I talked about a particular marketing lesson I discovered while on a cruise on the Mexican Riviera with my family. The lesson was "start where your customer already is.

It’s an important lesson to remember, no matter what you’re selling.

Well, I was thinking about that today because I happen to find myself

He said ‘Because that’s where the money is.’

People ask me why I attend so many trainings, or study so many home study courses.

My answer is the same as the bank robber Willie Sutton. When Sutton was asked why he robbed banks, he replied, " Because that’s where the money is."

I was gone 5 whole days out of last week to attend a very special training course run by Eben Pagan. In attendance were other smart marketers, including Jeff Walker, Lou D’Alo, and Joe Polish…and about 150 other students.

The room was packed for some life-changing information. Want to know what it was about?

"Advanced Learning and Teaching Techniques."

Now, all things being equal, this is NOT a course I would have normally made time for. But since Eben was teaching it, attendance was a non-issue. Of course, I’d go!

And I’m glad I did.

So in this message today, there are TWO VITAL CONCEPTS I want to focus you on. Knowing them each will help you be more successful … starting today.

The first is this:

Product Creation

Want to Know How to Make an Info Product?

In this economic environment, each of us, all of us, needs to move fast to make money now.

I keep hearing that there are two things in particular that people need to know how to do.

* One is to write an ebook.
* The other is to run a teleseminar.

Ebooks are the right thing to do if you’ve got big plans, because ebooks are a great way to get new customers into your sales funnel. Ebooks are relatively low priced, but easy to sell.

Clickbank, one of the planet’s largest marketplaces for selling ebooks, last year helped ebook authors sell about 25,000 ebooks a DAY at an average cost of over $30 each.

And I’ve got clients who sell

Advanced Learning and Teaching Technologies

One of the first lessons you learn in Marketing is that people buy what they want, not what they need.

That’s why you don’t really see a lot of toilet paper selling online, but you can buy an ipod at several thousand websites.

So when Eben Pagan and Wyatt Woodsmall announced their "Advanced Learning and Teaching Technologies" seminar in Los Angeles, I was skeptical.

How are they going to fill the room?

Well, it turns out that about 150 people did fill the room this past week, and it was an incredibly eye opening event.

I was there for all five days, and I’ll boil down what I thought was the most powerful take-away from the event.

For most of us, Learning just means

Why Does He Carry Titanium Business Card?

What on earth would compel someone to have his business cards made out of Titanium?

I’m not talking about a Credit card, like a platinum or Onyx Amex card…those are relatively common.

I’m talking about a business card…The kind you might pass out a dozen or a hundred times a day to new friends and business associates.

Well, I met a guy who gave me his business card — titanium — a few months ago.

Titanium Business Card

He was wearing a white jacket, white pants, a tshirt, and espadrille shoes. Very "Miami Vice".

And engraved into his business card was his logo of an octopus.

I asked him what the octopus meant, and he told me that

Internet Marketing: A personal story about when I started

I’ve never really told this story publicly before, so I hope you’ll take a moment to hear it.

It might mean as much to you as it has to me.

Several years ago, near the beginning of my Internet marketing career, I met Alex Mandossian, who told me all about Teleseminar Marketing, and how anyone can earn a living with just a laptop, a chair, and a phone (and the laptop is optional).

It took me two weeks to decide to take the course, but I knew there was something there for me…something about what Alex was telling me made total sense.

Problem was…I didn’t have the tuition to take Alex’s course, or even space on any of my credit cards…so I had to
