I followed a link in an email from top copywriter Carl Galetti this morning and it took me to an interesting opportunity to be able to offer free ebooks on Internet Marketing and online business success.
This is the only one I've been able to have a look at so far but this is a 64 page book written by Internet marketer Derek Gehl, CEO of the Internet Marketing Center.
Internet Success In Six Steps
The full title is "The Six Steps You Need To Follow To Guarantee The Success Of Your Online Business!" and you can download it for free by clicking on the link below.
In case you are curious before you download it, the six steps are:
- Find your niche market
- Make sure you sell the right solution
- Keep your visitors glued to your site with compelling sales copy
- Design a website that leads visitors straight to the order button
- Use an "opt-in" to build relationships with your potential customers
- Drive swarms of cash in hand visitors to your site
Simple really and I don't think any of us can argue.
I've told you what's half a page but you can find out the nitty gritty details by downloading the ebook.
I should really be making you opt-in and give up your email address for this, just as it says in step 5 but I'm in a good mood today so grab it without any strings.
Guerrilla Marketing On The Internet
While I am writing about Internet marketing, I have just heard that the Guerrilla Marketing Association call this week is featuring Jay Conrad Levinson telling us "The Truth About Guerrilla Marketing On The Internet."
Guerrilla Marketing is strongly in favour of marketing with the latest technology and you can sign up for a free 30 day trial of the Guerrilla Marketing Association (affiliate link). This is one of my favourite business development resources because the membership site is absolutely packed with great information including a massive collection of mp3 recordings with experts across all the different areas of marketing.
I also read and followed up an email from Mike Filsaime (creator of Butterfly Marketing and the 7 Digit Code) and took a look at ListDotCom.(affiliate link)
Email opt-in lists are an essential part of Internet marketing and Mike Filsaime is very innovative so I thought this free service was well worth taking a look at.
It does seem to be a little like pyramid selling where the people who get in at the beginning have the option to send their emails to far more people than can send them emails.
The sales letter explains it better than I can and I have just checked. According to the system I am at the top of the tree, on level one, just below the ListDotCom administrator. If you are on one of my current lists you will know that I don't overwork it. I just send out two, three or four emails a months.
There are various upgrade options (which you have to pay for) but they allow you to email extra people.
This could drive you crazy with unwanted emails but it could also be a great way to gain aces to a double opt-in list very quickly and Mike Filsaime is offering lots of bonuses for signing up.
Just pop over to ListDotCom and take a look. (affiliate link)
I always think that if you don't try these things, you never will never know whether they make the key difference and this is certainly an idea that could take you past the tipping point between success and failure in your Internet marketing.
I have now tried this for nearly two weeks and I've had over 500 emails.
How many have I looked at?
None. I set up a separate folder and just let them shoot in there but it clearly defeats the point.
People will become extremely frustrated with so many emails and ListDotCom is likely to get bigger or they will do what I have done.
I can't see the value. Yes you could get to send out extra emails but you would just be spamming. Not recommended.
Nitro Blueprint System Increases In Price April 1, 2008
I had an email from Kevin Wilke of Nitro Marketing explaining that the highly rated Nitro Blueprint System will increase in price on April 1 to $497.
This is no surprise to me because I have written on both my blogs that I thought it was too cheap and expected the price to increase when they had the success stories to show how well it really does work.
Now I have been advising you to wait to see how my review progresses but it is such a big system and I have become way too over-committed on these programs, that my progress through the Nitro Blueprint System is sloth-like.
But only because there have been more pressing priorities. With Nitro there is no time limit while the StomperNet SMARTS program is for a fixed time and that has been taking my primary attention. Then there was the problem that clients wanted me to do things...
But I love the Nitro Blueprint System and I have read/listened ahead but not turned the ideas into action.
Kevin Wilke, Matt Gill & Anyone Else From Nitro Are Forbidden From Reading This Next Paragraph
Even at $497 I still think it's a fantastic bargain and they could charge much more for it. Hopefully they won't. They are already wealthy.
Nitro Blueprint System Summary
It really is a step by step guide to getting your Internet business up and generating money quickly and through their forum and resources, they have a network of people who will take away the "techie problems."
As a reviewer the technical side is one of the things that is slowing me down. Some people just won't subcontract, either because it's not in their make-up or they don't have the money so I have felt obliged to handle the techie stuff myself to see how solid the Nitro Blueprint System is.
But I am no techie so all this business about the cpanel and ftp and plug-ins for Wordpress blogs leaves me cold. My advice - if in doubt, spend a bit more money and delegate. Your task is to create a business that starts generating revenue quickly.
My New Advice About The Nitro Blueprint System
Don't wait for me to finish the review.
Buy now before the price increases and if you don't think that it is superb value for money, take advantage of the strong guarantee.

Michael Port Interviews Andy Wibbels About Small Business Blogging
My two blogs are now at the very centre of my Internet business strategy.
Michael Port has interviewed Andy Wibbels, author of Blogwild: A Guide For Small Business Blogging in his Think Big Mondays teleseminar series.
I am going to listen to the call later today but based on the quality of the other recordings in the series, I recommend that you pop over and join the Think Big Revolution (affiliate link). It is all free and you can download the mp3.
