One (very valuable) piece of Listbuilding Advice

What I’m about to share with you had a big, immediate impact on me, and what I’m going to do over the next 30 days. I’m sharing it with you because, well, I think it will help you, too. A lot. Especially if you copy me.

No hype, by the way, but this little bit of advice is golden.  (Don’t discount the advice just because it’s free, please.)

I spent several days last week with some of the top internet marketers in the world. One of them was Tellman Knudson. You may know him as the slightly eccentric, ADD-powered marketer, and the creator of the MyFirstList listbuilding system.

If you don’t know about Tellman’s barefoot run across the USA, or how he went from a marketing newbie with a shaved-head to a millionaire with long hair and a scraggly beard, well you really ought to get to know him better, because he’s a sharp dude.

Really sharp.

And motivated.

Anyway, he was talking to this other new friend of mine, Lisa Sasevich (I’ll tell you about her in another letter) and I overheard him giving her some listbuilding advice. I didn’t catch all of it, but I had heard enough to know that I had to ask him about it later.

With a jack-on-the-rocks in my hand, and a glass of ice-water in his, I asked Tellman to repeat what he had told Lisa. Here’s how our conversation went.

Clarity Trumps Persuasion

I thought I’d pass along this little tidbit of marketing wisdom that I’ve suspected for a while, but that was reinforced and proven a few times recently.

You need to know this, too.

I’ve recently been watching the webinars that Marketing Experiments conducts. Wow, they sure do put a lot of effort into figuring out what works and what doesn’t work in online marketing.

My only gripe (and it’s not really a gripe) with them is that they are more focused on the larger, corporate marketer than they are with the online entrepreneurs — marketers like you and I.

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,

–Mark Widawer

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.

1ShoppingCart Upsell Express 1-Click Upsells

Finally, something great from the folks at 1ShoppingCart.

1SC has made some changes recently — a few that are helpful, and a few that are not. One of them, I think, is just a fantastic feature.

First, if you don’t know what 1ShoppingCart is, let me explain.

1ShoppingCart is the the most common all-in-one system for running your online infoproduct business. Built around the shopping cart is an autoresponder system, an email broadcast system, an affiliate management system, a basic split-testing system, and lots more that an online merchant needs.

If you’re just starting out online, using 1ShoppingCart for your new business is a pretty easy choice.

(You might know 1ShoppingCart by another name, like Marketer’s Choice. That’s because 1ShoppingCart has lots of private labels names lead to exactly the same spot — it’s all 1ShoppingCart underneath.)

So what’s the fantastic feature they just added?

1-Click Upsells!

You’ve always been able to send your buyers to a second sales page after making a purchase, but this is

Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Manager Course


The easiest (and most fun) internet marketing projects I have worked on were when I didn’t have a list, any affiliates, or a product of my own in that niche.

In fact, it was when I was running launches for someone else.

I remember one launch — We actually blasted through our 24-hour sales goal in the first hour.

I made a chunk of dough on that project — but my client was happy to pay me. That’s because I helped him make an even BIGGER chunk of dough.

To be candid, it was work for me. But it was fun work. I got to learn about a brand new market that I had previously known nothing about. I got to meet some fascinating people. I had a GREAT time working on the project.

And I got paid REAL well.

You should know, though, that the tactics that I used were not ones that I made up. Nope. They were tactics that I learned from Jeff Walker, the top guru of product launches, and a personal friend and mentor of mine.

If running a launch sounds like the kind of business you’d like to be in, then take a look at what Jeff has just done with his new Product Launch Manager course.

People who run product launches are in high demand. Jeff gets asked all the time to

Making Money Online Without a List or Product

To Your Success,


P.S. You have to opt-in to see the video. Be sure you do so… the last time Jeff shared this stuff, it was at a $25,000 PER PERSON seminar… that sold out within an hour. This is serious stuff.

Go check it out now:

This message is not for beginning internet marketers.

On the other hand, you don’t need a product or a list, either.

I’ve seen a TON of new products and big launches coming out lately… and I’m sure you have too.

And I’m sure they are all fine products… if you have a product or an idea for a product and a list ready to buy it.

So what if you don’t have a product? What if you don’t have a list?

Well, that can be a problem.

And that’s why I am so flat-out STOKED about the latest thing Jeff Walker’s about to release. Jeff and I have talked about this project personally — over the last three years. Now, he’s finally doing it.

Go watch his new video and just try to tell me you don’t feel the same way:

The Guy Behind The Guys Who Make All The Money Online

Jim Stone is a guy you might not have heard of, but he’s a guy you should know.

He’s one of those crazy-smart scientist PhD guys who makes all the rest of us look kind of dumb.

Lucky for me, he’s a friend of mine. (I just try not to stand next to him at cocktail parties.)

Jim is an expert at split testing.

In fact, he’s written his own software that automates pretty much all the complicated parts of split testing. 

Now, in case you don’t know much about split testing, it’s how all successful marketers make sure they make more money tomorrow than they’re making today. And all the top marketers, including ….

…and a hundred others, including me, all use Jim’s software to test and improve our pages.

So why am I writing to you today?

Two choices for selling your stuff online (One is better than the other)

 If you’re doing business online, what are your CHOICES?

I mean, if you’ve got a product, and you want to sell it online, WHAT DO YOU DO?

You could just put up a sales page and HOPE for the best…traffic may come (or not). And now and then  someone might buy (but it’s never as much as you  expected.)

But, it turns out, that HOPE is not a very good  business strategy.

In fact, IT’S A BAD ONE.

The alternative to "hope" is
