My FTC Compensated Affiliate Notice

I recently wrote about my interpretation of the new FTC Marketing Guidelines that go into effect on December 1st. Among other restrictions, those guidelines compel online marketers, such as me, to make full disclosure when we are compensated for the recommendations that we make.

If you are an affiliate, a publisher, or a marketer of anything online, you need to read this important article. Really. I’m not kidding.

Because unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last two months, you have already heard about the new FTC guidelines that go into effect starting tomorrow, December 1, 2009.

Getting More Coaching and Consulting Clients

Are you a coach or a consultant? If you are, you already know that it feels good to help people, one on one, who can really benefit from your expertise.

It’s pretty good that they pay you very well for the privilege, too.

  • But what if you aren’t quite getting as many clients as you want?
  • Or if you can’t seem to charge what you’re really worth?
  • Or if you haven’t even found your first client yet?

Well that’s what Christian Mickelson’s "Free Sessions That Sell" program is all about.

It’s designed to teaach experts, like you, how to get more clients, make more money, and live a better lifestyle…all based on what you already know.

I’ve gone through an earlier version of the program, and Christian breaks down his process so simply, that following it is almost automatic. Now, with version 5, "Free Sessions That Sell" is even better.

I won’t say too much more about it, but I will encourage you to read more about it, if personal coaching or consulting appeals to you.

To Your Success,

P.S. As part of Christian’s method for getting coaching and consulting clients, he shows you exactly what to say, when to say it, and how to say it so that you can get and keep more clients than you ever thought possible.

Like I said, I’ve gone through Christian’s course myself, and recommend it highly.
