Most Internet Marketing Products Suck – Get a Refund!

There is a lot of hype out there, especially in many Internet Marketing circles.  Lots of people selling magic systems and special formula’s to help you get rich quick or at the very least make money online.  But how can you tell the good products from the bad hyped up products.  Today’s post is about Internet Marketing products that suck and how to separate the  creme from the crap.

Most people who begin to start any kind of business online or try to setup any website will no doubt find themselves receiving emails promising the world.  From free reports to now free training video’s, everyone wants to get to know you and everyone seems to be able to help you.  All you have to do is simply fill in your name and email and salvation can be yours.

The majority of the Internet Marketing products being pandered about on the web are simply crap.  Most are just re-hashed reports transcribed from someone else’s tele-seminar in order to get you on their email list.

Now don’t get me wrong – there isn’t anything wrong with trading an email for some free information.  I do it all the time and it helps me get to know the author of the report and possibly develop a friendship.  What bothers me is when this relationship escalates to a sale of an email course, eBook, video course, access to a membership forum or whatever…  and the product is just junk.

If you find yourself in a situation like this, don’t just take it and loose your money.  Contact the author and GET A REFUND!  If the product sucks, then don’t be afraid to fire up an email and ask for your money back.  98% of the information products available online come with a 30-60 day money back, iron clad, no questions asked, even if its 3:00 am in the morning guarantee.   If that’s the case then exercise your right to get your money back.

One way to make sure you get good useful information is to simply visit the author’s blog, leave comments and start a conversation that way. Many blog owners will end a blog post asking if anyone has questions.  And many blogs will link back to your website just for helping add to the conversation.  This is a great way to get to know more experienced marketers and help your own website ranking at the same time.

Another way is to visit some Internet Marketing forums. There are many great forums with a ton of information and advice from their members.  If you have a question about a particular product simply post a question in one of these forums. There are always friendly people that are more than willing to help.

Here is a list of some really good and free Internet Marketing Forums:

IMD Forum

Warrior Forum

Self Starters Weekly Tips

Do you have some good ways to weed out the bogus Internet Marketing products from the good ones?  Leave us a comment below and tell us what you do keep from buying Internet Marketing Products that Suck.

Cool Podcasts for Internet Business

Everyday I get up in the morning and drive to work.  For the 30-45 minutes each way to work, I sit in traffic and  need something to take my mind off of things… keep me motivated,  inspired and help me with my pre-occupation of making money online.

Last year, for my birthday my wife gave me an iPhone.  I was blown away but also very terrified.  Sure they’re cool and all,  but they are also pretty damn expensive!

“We can’t afford one of these things?!?! ”

Of course deep down inside  I was thrilled.  I love little gadgets like these and  I have to say I love my iPhone.

Since then I’ve been checking out the world of podcasts.  In the past I never really got the fascination with a podcast.  You download an mp3 to your iPod (mp3 player) and play it…  Whats the big deal?

Now that I have an iPhone/iPod, I never realized how easy  and convenient it was.  And there are some amazing podcasts floating around in the podcast world with some amazing information.  Amazing information for helping you succeed in your online business and its all for free!!

Some of My Favoriate Podcasts for Internet Business

I’d like to introduce you to some friends that keep me company on my commute to and from work.  These podcast are great for getting ideas and tips for your business.  Each one is inspiring,  motivating, as well as providing great updates on new technologies and how other bloggers and web site internet marketers are running their businesses.

Internet Business Mastery – This is hands down got to be the best podcast being produced for entrepreneurs starting an online business. Published every couple of weeks Jay and Sterling bring fantastic interviews with some of the biggest names in internet business.  They also share some of their own great tips on starting and running a successful business.  If you can only listen to one podcast to help you with your business, this needs to be the one you listen to!

Internet Marketing – This brilliant podcast is produced by Andy White and Kelvin Newman across the pond from the UK and Europe.  Their recent interviews with Seth Goden and Tim Ferris was as they say “brilliant”!  They also have lots of great tips on some of the latest technology available for your blog.

Press This – This is a more technical podcast that comes to us from The Netherlands where Joost de Valk (pronounced Yoast – like the word toast with a Y).  Joost is a fantastic developer of many well known plugins like Socialable and Google Analytics.  His podcast has some great interviews and discussions with other WordPress and plug-in developers, as well as SEO experts.

Late Night Internet Marketing – Mark Mason of MasonWorld.com produces this podcast clearly aimed at the part time marketer and blogger.  Great interviews and insights to blogging and running your business part time.

43 Folders – This is a new podcast I recently started listing to.  I found it through a search for Seth Goden interviews (I’m on a Seth Goden kick lately).  The interview was fantastic and I’m not a subscriber.

Duct Tape Marketing – Another great marketing related podcast that has some awesome interviews with top marketing folks.

And last but not least we can not forget Ed Dale and Lynn Terry’s Internet Marketing This Week podcast.  Both Ed and Lynn are amazing marketers and business owners.  There is a ton of great information on this podcast. You really need to check this one out.  I actually just re-discovered this podcast a little while ago.   I used to listen to this when it first came out and totally forgot about it — Bad Joe! Bad Joe!…. and thanks Lynn and Ed!

Well, that’s about it.  I’ve listened to a lot of other podcast programs but these are my favorites for sure.  These all have provided some great insight and inspiration for me in my business.

Are there any that I’ve missed?  Let me know… I’m always looking for cool stuff to listen while stuck in traffic.

Review Commission Ritual – Brian Johnson

Review Commission Ritual – Brian Johnson

commission ritualHey guys and Happy New Year.  It’s been a busy beginning of 2010 for me that’s for sure… and long while since I’ve posted here on my blog.  I hope you’re doing good in your businesses and things are looking up for you!

In thie past several weeks I’ve been refocusing on affiliate marketing and looking at my webs ites to see what can be done to better target buying customers and improve conversions.  Of course more traffic is always helpful, but if that traffic doesn’t convert you don’t make any money so then all of your work is wasted.

To help me refocus, I’ve been using a product released by my good friend Brian Johnson called Commission Ritual.  He released Commission Ritual back in July (I think) and I’ve been wanting to check it out ever since the launch.  Well I finally got around to it and man am I amazed! For $4.95 you just can’t beat the great material you get.

I first learned about Brian almost 2 years ago when I came across a video he had done where he talked about the success he was getting using an ebay affiliate software called Build A Niche Store (BANS).

A lot has changed since then, BANS is gone, but Brian is continuing time and time again to release really excellent material to help me (and a lot of other people) make money online.

The first product I ever purchased from Brian was SEO Press Formula.  This was an awesome set of videos that walked you through setting up your WordPress website and showed you how to get it complete optimized for search engines.  I still use the information he taught in that product to this day!  SEO Press Formula was well worth the investment.

This past July Brian released Commission Ritual and again he hits home with money making information for affiliate marketers.  As I mentioned earlier the price for Commission Ritual is $4.95 which is amazingly cheap for the amount of material he gives you.  Don’t be fooled though, there is a rebill of $92 bucks seven days later – but for the first week you get a chance to be enlightened to how you can turn your existing websites around using his method and start earning more commissions.

He also goes through how to set up groups of websites for maximum commission and income.  He reviews how to find keyword rich domain names, how to target buying keywords, as well as includes lots of optimized themes for wordpress to get a jump start on bringing in organic traffic.

Commission Ritual is a full coarse on setting up and optimizing affiliate websites with wordpress using organic search engine traffic. This is turn is used to help you make money using either eBay, Amazon, Commission Junction or any other affiliate network you want to subscribe to.

The one draw back I would say to the program is that it is focused around WordPress so if you build sites using straight html you may find yourself wanting a different product. The product is focused at the less technical folks too so if your an experienced marketer some of the material you may already know.

I have many many affiliate web sites and the material here has really helped boost my traffic by increasing my  organic search ranking in the search engines.

Commission Ritual has a ton of video instruction for you to follow that leads you every step of the way. He also has a nice active user forum called the commission ritual inner circle membership with well over 1000 posts to help answer any questions you may have (and Brian is there and answers them himself).

Brian has really helped me and my business make money online and he can help you too.  Check out Commission Ritual… for $4.95 (less than the price of a burger at Wendy’s) you can see for yourself and put some of his tips to use.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised in the (search) results!

How It All Began

Well, to be honest, I never intended to venture into affiliate and Internet marketing.  I really was just looking for a good domain parking script. I just wanted a way to display ads on my unused domains and not have Godaddy get money for traffic going to my domains.

I happened to be lucky enough to run across a really great domainer and Internet marketer named Brian Johnsonhttp://www.domainparkingmoney.net. He had some really great information and was not trying to sell a bunch of useless software.

Brian had some great information for using a product called BANS (Build a Niche Site), instead of just using a domain parking script. Now, I had never heard of BANS, and had to google it just to get an idea of what it was about. But man, what a great product!  If you are just starting out in this business it’s a perfect way to start slow and make money quickly.

So I took several of my websites and put BANS on them. Before I knew it I was hooked. My domains were breaking even and easily paying for themselves.  Since then, it has become an obsession and my business is growing nicely.
