How To Generate A Nice Steady Online Income TODAY!
I'm at The Internet Marketing Momentum Bootcamp
in Atlanta, Georgia.
One of the questions that I got asked today was
what do you do just to earn a few hundred dollars
per month while waiting to launch your product, or
waiting for your business to really take off.
I've actually answered that question many times
over the past few months.
Let me break it down for you.
1) Get a copy of this ebook:
2) Sign up for the 100% commission affiliate
3) Read the ebook and write a simple review in
your own words.
4) Post that review on your blog, and email it
to your contacts. Also, write articles talking
about the ebook.
5) When the sales come in, 100% of the sales
price is deposited directly to your Paypal
I've just described to you how I earn several
thousand dollars per month, and have done this
steadily for MONTHS.
It really is that easy.
That is the simplest formula that I can offer
you... and it is exactly what I'm doing.

It really is that easy :-)

I'm Off To Atlanta - And A Gift For You From A Multi-Millionaire Friend
I'm off to Atlanta today where Frank Garon and I
will teach/lead an intense 2-day bootcamp on Saturday
This is actually the first event that I've hosted in
4 years. I've spoken at dozens of events but rarely
The first seminar that I hosted was back when Stephen
Pierce first came on the scene. I invited him to
speak at my first seminar.
Stephen accepted my invitation and the crowd LOVED him.
Now, he's doing so well that he's doing live television,
and has just published a book that he GAVE to everyone
listening to the most recent television show that he
Stephen gave me permission to give you a copy of that
book too. I have an autographed copy sitting on my
desk and it IS packed with some great information.
Please take a moment to get your copy of Stephen's
book at: http://TheRealSecrets.com/StephensBook/
One of the seminars that I spoke at earlier this month
was Ken McArthur's JV Alert Live Philly. Ken first
spoke at an internet marketing seminar when...
I invited him to speak at my second live seminar.
When Ken first decided to launch JV Alert, he asked for
my help in introducing him to some potential JV partners.
I brought a few top internet marketers into JV alert as
early partners, and I'm sure that helped to get it going.
At this weekend's event in Atlanta, Frank and I will do
most of the teaching. We have a combined 25 years of
experience in actually running online businesses.
We have two friends from Atlanta, both multi-millionaires,
who will teach short sessions on how they literally
generate millions using the internet. Those are the only
outside speakers, and they are not selling ANYTHING :-)
The reason that I don't host a lot of seminars is that
I do pour everything that I have into them. Unlike many
"Internet Marketing Seminars" I will actually teach you
anything and everything I know. I don't give you a teaser,
and then upsell you to the real information.
Frank and I hope to transform dozens of lives this
weekend. We're committed to your success.
If you haven't registered for our bootcamp yet, you still
can. It starts at 8:30am Saturday morning, and goes all
day Saturday and Sunday. If you can't stay all day, both
days, you should still attend. The information that we'll
share with will be that powerful.
If you frequent my blog, you'll see that not only do I
personally know Stephen Pierce and Ken McArthur, but that
I regularly network with (and pick the minds of) many top
- Jeff Walker
- Mike Filsaime
- Rich Schefren
- John Reese
- Case Stevens
- Keith Wellman
- Mike Ambrosio
- Mark Hendricks
- Allen Says
- Jonathan Mizel
- Mark Joyner
- Michael Angiers
- Tim Kerber
- Tim Houston
- Sid Hale
- Gina Gaudio-Graves
- Jim Daniels
- Colette Marshall
- Len Thurmond
- Armand Morin
- John Childers
- Carl Galletti
- Stone Evans
- Yanik Silver
- Ken McCarthy
- Ewen Chia
- Patric Chan
- Doug Hudiburg
- David Cavanagh
- Dr. Mani
and most of the other top Internet marketers.
Heck, John Reese was a paid attendee at my first seminar.
John spent practically every break during that seminar
sharing his ideas. He constantly had small groups of people
standing around awed by some of his concepts.
I continuously pick the minds of the top online marketers.
I do actually sit around in their rooms, at hotels around
the world, and pick their minds one-on-one, so what I teach
you at my events isn't just what 12 years of running an
online business has taught me.
I teach you what they privately share with me... and it's
the little things that my friends share with me that often
clarifies something that I couldn't quite grasp.
Hanging out with the right people is an incomparable growth
I hope that you'll join us this weekend. Register now at:

Sharing A Smile With Colette Marshall & Mark Widaw In Vegas
More photos from the Vegas Mastermind session.
I learned a lot from both of them, and don't be
surprised to see me doing interviews/teleseminars,
etc., with them and other attendees from the mastermind.
Rubbing Elbows With Copywriter Ray Edwards
I took a few moments during the Las Vegas
Mastermind to catch up with my old friend
Ray Edward & Willie Crawford In Las Vegas
Ray has written copy for me... and I even knew
him when a copywriting was only 4 figures :-)
Ray's an all-around nice person too.... but don't
tell him that I said that.
Willie Crawford & Jeff Dedrick Discuss Affiliate Sales Contest
I took the opportunity during the Las Vegas
mastermind to pick Jeff Dedrick's mind on
affiliate marketing. Jeff has very quickly
evolved into a very effective affiliate marketer.

The MGM Grand in Las Vegas
Mike Filsaime & Michael Cheney At The Las Vegas Mastermind
Here's a shot of Mike Filsaime and Micheal Cheney

It was a very informal gathering, with us just
getting to know each other better, but a LOT
of deals were explored there too :-)
Dinner At Felllinis's In Las Vegas

What a beautiful view.
Maybe he's contemplating buying the airport :-)
Three StomperNet Guru's In Las Vegas
While hanging out with Jeff, I caught this photo of
Tom Ham, Howie Schwartz, and Brad Fallon... all of
StomperNet. Who knows what they were working on :-)
Even though we were relaxing, networking, etc.,
most of the attendees to the mastermind meeting
had their laptops and/or they were busy text
messaging their staffs.
Some spent a lot of time on Twitter too :-)
Hang Out With The Mulac's In Las Vegas
Here's a shot of me, Sephanie Mulac, my wife Nancy,
and Morgan Mulac, hanging out at Terry Esperland's
Like me, Nancy fell in love with the Mulac's daughters,
and I though that she was going to steal them.
The Esperlands were VERY gracious hosts too.
Yarok Starak & Willie Crawford Hanging Out In Las Vegas
Here's a shot of Yaro Starak (the professional
blogger) and myself, hanging out in Jeff Walker's
suite in Vegas.

We actually got into some pretty deep conversations,
and a lot of the people at that networking gathering
thought surprisingly alike.
It was a fun gathering.

Just a few more photos from my past few days in Las
This is a shot of Jeff Walker and I high atop the MGM

you could touch it.

Email From A Long Time Customer
This is a sanitized email that I got from a customer recently.
I asked her permission to share it, and she granted that but
requested that I not reveal her identity or niche.
There are a LOT of very powerful lessons hidden in this simple
email written from the heart :-)
For the skeptics (and the FTC), I do have this note on file. I'm
hoping that she'll let me use it unsanitized some day. I'm fairly
confident that she will.
Here it is:

I realize that you do not personally know me, although we have had brief
communication in the past on various forums, including your own. Before you
hit the delete button, I want you to know that this really is a personal
email, written directly to you - and only to you...and it is rather long.
I guess I should start this letter with a little background information
I am a highly successful xxxx xxxxxxxxxxxx. I am also a 'fairly'
successful xxxxx marketer. I must use the term 'fairly' here because I
compare that success to my success as a xxxer. I've been around for a great
deal longer than most people realize...quietly making a living online since
If you are wondering about the term 'quietly,' I mean that I have a website
for my xxxxx business, but I don't advertise it, I don't use SEO
tactics...I really don't do anything at all to promote it. I actively read
the forums, but I rarely make a post, and when I do, it's because I have a
genuine question, or I can answer a question that nobody else is answering.
I may make a total of five forum posts in a twelve month period - if that,
and usually, I have to sign up again as a member because it's been so long
since I posted, that I don't remember my username and password (or if I even
have one for that particular forum). I'm quiet, yet I am successful by being

me, they make money from the product, and everyone is happy. Before you get
suspicious, I'm not shopping for a new client by contacting you...I have
enough work :)
I also get work from people who manage to find my obscure little website.
Sometimes, I make people mad, because there are many jobs that I turn
down...either because I'm overloaded with work, or because I'm not
necessarily overloaded, but want to take it easy for a while...or because I

I have, however, recently decided to start playing in the Internet Marketing
niche, for my own personal reasons...which may mean that I have to start
speaking up, just a little bit, but being the type of person that I am, I'm
not likely to get overly loud or aggressive :) My personal reason: I don't
like the direction that Internet Marketing has taken in recent years, and
I'm hoping to use my xxxxx talent and my knowledge to bring back the old
spirit of this industry.
That's enough about me. I'm not writing to tell you of my successes...I just

choosy you are when it comes to Joint Ventures and product recommendations.
I've seen that you believe in and use the products and services that you
You, Mr. Willie Crawford, represent everything that Internet Marketing
should be - you represent the true spirit of the Internet, and the old
spirit of Internet Marketing that I miss so much.
You do everything in true "Willie Style," and I am overly impressed. I hope
that you will continue to bring everything good that you are to this
industry...I fear that it needs your guidance and leadership now, more than
ever before. As I break into the Internet Marketing niche, I know that I
will face every success, every obstacle, and every heartache with the
question 'how would Willie handle this' in my head.

Aren't You Ready For Success Now ... Plus The Story Of When I First Met John Reese
Hi. Just checking in with you again from Las Vegas.
Yesterday I sent out an email inviting you to my
bootcamp this coming weekend in Atlanta. Please
go ahead and register for that bootcamp here:
You need to lock in your hotel room, etc.
I had a number of people email me asking if I
thought that they should attend the bootcamp.
They wondered if the timing was right, or if they
should wait "until conditions are better."
My answer was "If not now, then when?"
We all have a lot of things going on in our lives,
and frankly, if you wait for everything to be "just
right" you'll never decide to actually CHANGE your
I'm a living example of how just taking action can
make a massive difference. If you study my history,
you'll see that I literally went from welfare, then
to the military, on to becoming one of the world's
leading internet marketers... by making simple
decisions and taking action.
If you've read my biography, you'll know that my
life was not a bed of roses. I just knew that things
could be better and acknowledged that that was only
going to happen if I got into action.
I started internet marketing back in 1996, and at
that time, I decided that I was going to someday
operate my own successful online business. I decided
that I would work:
- When I wanted to
- Where I wanted to
- With whom I wanted to
As I sit in my suite high up in The Monte Carlo
Hotel in Las Vegas, I have to acknowledge that I
AM living that dream.
The reason that I'm still in Las Vegas is that
tomorrow I'll attend a mastermind meeting with
some of the most successful affiliate marketers
that I know. These marketers were invited by Jeff
Walker, and were the top affiliates during his
recent product Launch Formula 2 promotion... plus
a few friends.
During the mastermind, we'll share tactics,
bounce ideas/projects off of each other and just
Networking with like-minded, proactive people is
very empowering. By being around those actually
doing what you plan on doing, you see proof of what
is possible, and you "feed off the energy."
I still remember my very first seminar. I sat around
Ramon Williamson's hotel room until around 3am the
night after the seminar ended. It was just me, Ramon,
and this guy that I had just met... named John Reese.
I often tell people how that impromptu brainstorming
session revolutionized my thinking. It so "kicked me
into action" that 4 MONTHS after attending my first
seminar EVER... I hosted MY first live seminar.
Frank Garon and I are hosting The Internet Marketing
Momentum Bootcamp in Atlanta this weekend, to give you
that type of momentum.
We'll teach you the things that you really need to
know to build and operate a successful online business,
but just as importantly, we'll give you that critical
We'll help you KNOW which things you really should be
focusing on in your online business... and which things
are just distractions.
We'll help you to connect with the other attendees,
and based upon your projects, point you towards
ideal joint venture partners, and get you moving
forward in a massive way.
I need to end this note now, because I have to head
down to the hotel lobby where my friend Greg Mulac
will pick up my wife and I and take us to a friends
house for a cookout around their pool.
You can see a glimpse of the place that we'll be at here:
The thread "An Attitude Of Gratitude For Our Las Vegas
Hosts" is about the friends whose house we'll actually
My friend Yaro Starak blogged a little about tomorrow's
mastermind session here:
I'll give you just a glimpse of where the mastermind
meeting will be here: http://www.skyloftsmgmgrand.com/
In order to get past the very tight security to the
mastermind meeting, you DO need to be on the guest list.
My point in showing you those last two links was not
to brag, but to show you that... with just a little action,
the internet lifestyle is very much a reality.
My point is also to show you that I don't just share a lot
of theory with you. I share my knowledge and experience, BUT
I also constantly pick the minds of my very successful peers,
and find out what they know that can help you :-)
It's just a matter of making a decision, then taking action...
putting one foot in front of the other.
Frank Garon and I hope that you will allow us the honor of
helping you to live the lifestyle that is your destiny.
I am no different than you. I'm just decisive. Your success
depends upon you being decisive too.

I just watched a movie that completely blew me away. I just
had to tell you about it. It stars my friend, legendary Internet
marketing expert Alan R. Bechtold and it's got to be the most
fun I've ever had studying the REAL way to launch any business
on the Internet.
Alan created this full-length movie to add another dimension
to his new book, "Will Work for Fun: 3 Simple Steps to Turning
Any Hobby or Interest Into Cash," from John Wiley Books.
Both are now available during a special promotion that starts

both. Either way -- there are loads of great gifts you can
also claim for yourself when you take advantage of this deal
during the promotion.
Hurry! Alan's special promotion celebration ends in just a

Please Meet Me In Atlanta This Weekend - June 28th - 29th
Yesterday we wrapped up Carl Galletti's Internet Marketing
Super Conference X. I spoke on Saturday, and then spent
yesterday and last night hanging out with some of the
speakers and many attendees who were still in town.
There were some SERIOUS online marketers in attendance. One
of the gents that I had lunch with yesterday, for example,
wants to build a 100 MILLION dollar online business in the
next few years.... and I'm absolutely certain that he will.
The biggest difference between him and most internet
marketers that I know is that he takes MASSIVE action.
I'll actually be in Las Vegas through Wednesday, since I'm
attending a mastermind meeting sponsored by my friend Jeff
Walker on that day.
Friday, I'll head over to Atlanta where Frank Garon and I
will co-host The Internet Marketing Momentum Bootcamp.
I've wanted to do this bootcamp for a long time.
During the bootcamp, Frank and I will spend 2 VERY intense
days teaching you the things that you really need to focus
on to build a successful online business. We've both been
at it for over 12 years, and know what it takes.
We've also spend a lot of time picking some of the brightest
minds in the world of Internet marketing, so what we share
with you is NOT just our opinions and experiences.
If you were to make a list of the 25 MOST successful
internet marketers, your list would likely be close to the
list of who will be in the mastermind meeting with me on
Wednesday. I tell you that not to impress you, but to let
you know that I spend a lot of time learning what is
actually working for other very successful marketers, and
that does make me highly qualified to share that information
During the bootcamp, we'll get you focused, and get you
actually DOING those things that will grow your business
You won't just leave the bootcamp all pumped up... you'll
leave already in action. You'll leave with email address
and contact information of people that can help to make
your projects a reality.
You'll spend the weekend in a room full of VERY serious
marketers... as Frank and I teach in a highly interactive
setting. Then, after-hours, you'll continue the networking
and building business relationships that will transform your
online endeavors from a hobby to a real business.
Please go ahead and register now. It's only 4 days away.
Register here, and then make reservations at the hotel
listed at the bottom of the page (to get special rates):
If you have any questions, the easiest way to get them
answered is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll get back to you as soon as practical.
I do sincerely hope that you'll do whatever it takes to
join us. This is the first event that I've hosted in 4
years, and I don't anticipate hosting another one any
time soon. We'll stay up LATE at night answering your
questions and networking at the hotel.
I absolutely guarantee that this is the ONE event that
will finally get you going in the right direction!

I'll see you in Atlanta.

This Guy Schooled Me In Affiliate Marketing - He Whipped Me With Virtually NO List!
I'm on my way out the door for a few days in Las Vegas, where
I'll be speaking at Carl Galletti's seminar on Saturday.
However, I really really needed to let you know about this.
It's made a BIG difference in how I market affiliate products
- something that I'd been doing for 12 years prior to reading
The full story...
Back in March of this year, I started promoting Jeff Walker's
Product Launch Formula 2. I consider myself a pretty good
affiliate marketers, and did "ok" with that launch... as in
five-figures in commissions. I was in the top 15 affiliates :-)
As I started doing all of the standard things that I always
do for affiliate products promotions, I kept noticing this ONE
person consistently beating me for my most competitive keywords
in the search engines.
This guy was everywhere that I turned... like a thorn in
my side. He consistently ranked in the top 3 for keywords that
I was working very hard to rank on at Google.
This guy, Craig Beckta, did not have a huge list or a popular
website, yet he was EVERYWHERE.
When Product Launch Formula 2 finally launched, Craig made
lots of sales. He did it NOT by emailing his huge lists. He
did it by being where those researching (and trying to
decide whether PLF 2 was for them) went to buy.
After the launch I contacted Craig to see HOW he did it. He
turned the tables and asked if he could interview me. After
all, at one time during that launch I had 7 out of 10 positions
on the front page of Google for a key phrase that I was targeting,
but I could NEVER unseat Craig.
Craig interviewed me, and several other marketers who know
how to get incredible results. He combined that with step by
step instructions on how anyone can dominate the search engines,
and turned it into a course that he called, "Secret Affiliate
Craig just released Secret Affiliate Code, and if you are an
affiliate marketer, you can't afford NOT to read it. After all,
this guy out marketed people with lists of over 100,000... and
he does this consistently with affiliate promotions.
Take a minute now and check out what Craig is doing.
He had such an impact on how I market that part of what I'll
share in my presentation at the seminar this weekend will
credit Craig with "teaching this old dog a lot of new tricks."

Mastering "The Art Of The JV"

To many marketers in the "Internet Marketing" niche, setting

of many possible types of joint ventures, that is the type of
JV that this article focuses on.

with you just seven concept that once fully integrated into
your thinking, and modus-operandi, WILL make you a MASTER of
The Art Of The Joint Venture.
The 7 Concepts are:
1) Joint venturing is not just asking someone to promote your
product. In the Internet Marketing niche in particular, lots
of novice marketers equate joint venturing with recruiting super
affiliates. Most super affiliate have countless products that
they can promote (their own products and the products of
partners). To such people, a joint venture often means a
long-term multi-faceted arrangement.
2) Joint venturing is not just about the money! Many super
affiliates are frequently offered 60-100% commission. Some are
even surprisingly offered greater than 100% commission, so money
is usually NOT their main motivator.
In case you're wondering how anyone could afford to pay greater
than 100% commission, think backend!
3) Successful joint venturing does often hinge upon who you
know. Man is a social creature and we thrive upon socializing,
getting to know people, and becoming friends. We like to work
with those that we actually know and also often make decisions
based upon the recommendations of those we know. Often, joint
ventures are landed when you are recommended by a friend of your
"target" JV partner.
4) An irresistible joint venture proposal must answer the “What'
In It For Me?” question. Too many people approach seeking
joint ventures without really asking what the other party wants
most! Seek joint ventures by first attempting to see the world
through the other person's eyes, and you'll get better results.
5) In seeking joint ventures in many niches, you are facing very
stiff competition. Many novice product developers seem to
completely ignore the fact that they are only one-of-MANY
releasing similar products in the same timeframe. Come to the
table prepared to prove how your product is superior, and why
your joint venture proposal is more desirable.
6) Being a part of the in crowd... “the inner circle,” can give
you a definite advantage. Most of us have a circle of trusted
friends. We have people that we have grown to know, like and
trust, and that's who we prefer working with (all things being
equal). That DOES mean that you may need to break into your
desired joint venture partners' inner circles.
7) The Law of Reciprocity is an inviolate law of human
interactions. It applies to every human culture that
anthropologists have ever studied. The law requires that when
someone does something nice for you, you're obligated to do
something nice for them in return. It requires that when
someone does you a favor, that you seek ways to reciprocate.
Learn to deliberately tap into that law by doing nice things for
others... particularly potential JV partners. That's not
diabolical - that's engineering a "yes!"
These are just a few of the concepts that you really do need
a firm grasp of in order to be a Master Of The Joint Venture.
Master these concepts and landing more lucrative joint
ventures will require MUCH less effort. Study and practice
"The Art Of The JV" until much of it is habit, and you will
one day discover that you HAVE "Mastered" it.

What MOST Internet Marketers Are Doing Wrong - Even Most "Gurus" Do This Wrong!
What You're Probably Doing Wrong & How To Correct It
Just a quick note to point out the SINGLE BIGGEST MISTAKE
that most online marketers consistently make.
Even "gurus" who've been online 5 - 10 years often make
this mistake... consistently!
They do it if they are using article marketing.
They do it if they are using pay per clicks.
They do it if they're doing organic SEO.
What is that mistake?
They target the wrong keywords.
They either target keywords that no one is searching on, or
even worse, they target keywords that will bring them lots
of visitors... but those visitors won't convert to customers.
There's nothing more heart-wrenching than spending a small
fortune on pay per click traffic only to have that traffic
not buy a single thing.
It's enough to make you want to give up.
In fact, I've seen a lot of people who have simply given up
on their dreams, and gone back to the drudgery of a job that
they absolutely HATE.
Here's the key...
You need to know exactly which keywords people interested
in your product are searching on. More importantly, you
need to know exactly which keywords people looking to BUY
your product are searching on.
Whether it's to use those keywords in optimizing your sales
page, setting up pay per click campaigns, or article marketing,
it doesn't matter. You have to be found for the right
keywords in all of those instances, and you have to know,
beyond a shadow of a doubt, that those are the correct
Here's how I do it...
Running a successful online business, and living the life of
your dream does NOT have to be a struggle.

A Mailing List of 600,000 PLUS!
When my friend Thea Swafford shared that she had a database
of over 600,000 at a Michael Penland seminar long ago, it
was amazing to watch all of the marketers swarm over her at
the next break :-)
I quietly waited, called here later, and got her to share with
me her secret. The recording from that call is now in my
inner circle site... if I remember correctly.
Anyway, I adopted her techniques plus those of a LOT of others
to build a very respectable database myself... well over half
a million (being deliberately vague).
This database is a lot of different lists in a lot of different
niches, with MOST of them being outside of Internet marketing. I'm
very protective, and secretive, about some of these niches/lists.
However, I thought that I'd share one of my simplier list
building secrets with my fellow Warriors.
I find out about big name authors who are doing book releases,
and then in exchange for helping to publicize the release, I
get to include a gift on a page full of bonuses.
Typically, my gift is an ebook or perhaps an MP3 somehow
related to the topic of the book.
If I don't have an appropriate bonus, I create one, or outsource
one... although reworked/retitled PLR material is generally
One of my insider contacts for advance notice of these book
launches is Warren Whitlock... whom I chat with regularly at
Internet marketing seminars.

How To Market Your Products and Services On Twitter
How To Market Your Products and Services On Twitter
Copyright 2008 by Willie Crawford
Twitter is one of well over 1000 social networking sites
that I know of. I actually have a list of that many, but
have only checked out a handful of the most popular ones.
Actually, my list is about 1800 bookmarking and social
networking sites. I may share that list with my inner
circle soon... after my assistant go over it with a fine
toothed comb :-)
I've already shared my list of the most popular (and
productive) bookmarking sites in an ebook called, "How To
Bookmark Effectively For Massive Free Website Traffic!"
You can actually download that ebook for free, without
needing to opt-in or fill out any forms at:
Back to Twitter… Twitter is actually a micro-blogging
platform. You register, and then you can "follow"
others, and others can "follow" you.
When you log into Twitter, on the homepage you have a
window where you can type in messages ("tweets") of up
to 140 characters. When you click the "update" button,
everyone who has subscribed to your updates... everyone
following you, sees that message instantly... provided
they are logged-in to Twitter.
When someone that you're following updates, and you're
logged-in, you see their posts instantly.
There are Twitter users who post dozens of messages a
day. There are Twitter users who seem to stay logged
into Twitter and following their friends tweets for hours
At a recent JV Alert Seminar where I was on the expert
panel, I watched other panel members, who are also avid
Twitter users, actually carrying on conversations over
Twitter... right from the stage. They simply pulled out
their handheld devices, and twittered away!
While Twitter is fun to just chat with friend on, many
"capitalist"... like me, wonder if it can be used for
conducting business and making sales.
The answer is "Yes, but you shouldn't post blatant ads
Instead, you should post links to resources and news, and
those links CAN be your affiliate links.
Twitter also has a "Direct Message" feature where you can
post a message directly to someone who is following you.
No one else sees that message, and using that feature is
more appropriate when your post only pertains to one
I have made numerous sales via Twitter. Some examples
1) When I noticed that the World Internet Summit was hosting
a live event in Auckland, New Zealand, on July 17th - 20th,
2008, I twittered about it. This is the first time that they
are holding an Internet marketing seminar in a location that
doesn't get very many of those type events, so I considered
Shortly thereafter, one of my followers from that area,
posted a thank you. The next time that I checked my email,
I DID notice that he had already registered for the event
and that I had earned a nice commission.
2) When Jeff Walker launched Product Launch Formula 2, I
tweeted about the bonus package that I offered. I had several
followers ask me questions about my package (via direct
message) and two of those purchased the package. That earned
me nearly $2000.
3) When a friend noticed that I was twittering about how easy
it is to earn money marketing to offline businesses as compared
to the Internet marketing niche, she posted a link to a product
that she suggested I check out.
I clicked on her link and saw that a friend, Rachel Rofe,
along with a co-author, Jaime Mintun, had a product that they
were selling called "How To Make $10K In A Weekend." The
product was literally "a seminar in a box." It contained
everything that I needed to conduct local seminars teaching
offline businesses about the internet. In fact, the product
- A PowerPoint Presentation that I could use to conduct a
1 or 2-day live seminar.
- Ads that I could run to get commission-only sales people to
actually sell the seminar seats for me.
- A script that I could use along with the slides or even
give to someone else to conduct the seminar for me.
- Supplemental materials that I could use as bonuses,
handouts, or products-for-sale at my seminars.
- Very detailed start-to-finish instructions.
The package literally contained everything that I needed for a
local seminar that I was already planning on hosting quarterly
in my hometown.
I drooled over the webpage, but didn't buy right away because
I was getting ready to travel to JV Alert Live in Philadelphia
that upcoming weekend, and I didn't want to get side-tracked.
However, at the seminar, I got a chance to chat with Rachel
Rofe, and she talked me into both getting a copy of the
course, AND becoming an affiliate for it.
Wrapping up this story... After going through the course, I
fell so "in love" with it, that I twittered about it as well
as mentioned it in an ezine editorial. The ezine editorial
sold enough copies to earn me nearly $1000, and the tweet,
triggered several old friends asking questions about the
package. One of those friends subsequently purchased the
Those are just a few of the many sales that I'm sure that
my twittering has generated. The key is not to just post
blatant ads, but when you have something worthy of sharing,
and that you know your followers will likely appreciate, then
you can generate sales from just pointing our resources.
Aside from direct sales, I've noticed dozens of posts on my
followers blogs about things that I've posted to Twitter.
These blog posts were others indirectly promoting me and my
products to their audiences.
Your posts on Twitter are also indexed by the search engines,
so I've noticed my "tweets" showing up in Google for some
of my prime keywords. That's very powerful.
So, there you have a proven formula for marketing your
products and services on Twitter without being too "in your
face." The only thing left for you to do is go over to
http://Twitter.com and set up an account. It only takes a

The Amazing Law Of Expectation
The law of attraction is severely weakened if
you don't expect the results you've asked for.
On the other hand expectation reinforces and boosts the
electrical vibration and frequency of your thoughts and desires
Expectation is what tells your subconscious that this
request is based in truth, so it complies and goes out to get it.
Expectation is what creates the white heat in desire.
Learn to do it right
A visualization and/or an affirmation without expectency
tells your subconscious that you don't really care about
the outcome, or believe you will get it and so it lets it
off the hook for results.
Add intensity to your expectation and your subconscious
has to work that much harder to quicken the pace of retrieval.
If you don't build expectation into your meditations and desires
the universe considers them flimsy, wishy washy and unreal
without committment or substance and doesn't really waste
it's time to find and pull

18,000 email subscribers in 3 months offline?
When you work with regular brick and mortar
businesses the numbers and potential profit can be huge.
In less than 3 months the average offline business can
generate an email list of 900 to 18,000 highly targeted
Just one email to a highly targeted list like that can bring
in 500 dollars to 12,500 dollars or more in sales.
And you can be charging substantial fees to offline business
owners for setting up the email autoresponder system.
It's all revealed in this gift article. Check it out now...
P.S. Most internet marketers are focused on creating an income
But if you learn how to create a series of automated emails
for an OFFLINE business you can be making 500 dollars
or more in as little as 24 hours from now.

you work with doesn't need a website either.

Product Review "How To Make $10K In A Weekend" by Rachel Rofe and Jaime Mintun
I got a copy of this product after getting a recommendation
from Donna Fox on Twitter. It turned out to be a great
I then mentioned it on Twitter too... recommending it to my
followers. One old friend "direct messaged" me asking if I
"really" thought the product was THAT good.
When I get a question phrased like that, it's really saying,
I value you friendship, and hope that you wouldn't burn a
I told him to get the product because I know that he plans
on using it to put together local workshops, and I have
no doubt that it will add hundreds of thousands of dollars
to his bottom line... this year.
My friend in very proactive though.
The product is EVERYTHING that you need to host local seminar
where you teach offline businesses ecommerce and then upsell
them to your services.
You get everything from a system for hiring outside sales
people to fill the seats for you, (complete with sample ads &
script for them to use) to PowerPoint slides and a script that
you can use for hosting a 2-day seminars... or give to someone
else to conduct the seminar for you.
You are told...
How to decide who to target.
How to find a place
How to get people in the seats
How to structure your seminar for a lot of
interaction and high perceived value
How to price your event
How to process orders
How to time the presentations, breaks, meals, everything...
Literally EVERYTHING that you need to host a seminar
for offline businesses teaching them about:
- SEO & Website Optimization
- Setting up and testing a direct response website
- Following up automatically
- Common mistakes people make on websites
- How to turn their website from a billboard that just sucks
cash from their bottom line, to a results-generating dynamo
You get a lesson plan for teaching all of the things that sound
easy to a seasoned internet marketers but sound like some
foreign language to an offline business person.
Since, after you teach most of these offline businesses "how to
ecommerce" they'll glaze over and want you to do it for them,
you are also told how to do that... outsourcing all of the work
if you want to.
You are given lots of extras that you can give your seminar
attendees as bonuses... or sell to them.
After going through this package, I couldn't really think of
anything missing. You are literally handed the slides, a script
to go with them, and supplemental material. All you need to do
is READ the script, or get someone else to do it for you.
If you have any interest at all in host seminars for offline
businesses, or even for internet marketers, you need this

traffic is that it can be very risky. Those who use
pay-per-clicks to generate 100% of their traffic, and
are considered the best of the best, will tell you that
as many as 7 out of 10 campaigns that they set up will
lose money. The professionals very quickly shut off the
losers, and their winners more than make up for the
losses, but it's really not a game for someone not
You can also buy traffic using an affiliate program. Since
you only pay for the traffic when a sale is made, it's a
very low-risk method. Since your affiliates are sending
you their best customers, you can also think of it as
I love the affiliate program model, and have numerous
products sold via affiliate programs. I also sell a lot
of others’ affiliate products. It's win-win.
You can also create traffic by putting things on the
Internet that people are attracted to. You can create
content by writing articles or blogging for example. I
love content creation and have written over 1100
different articles. My articles teach people how to
solve pressing problems, and at the same time point them
to me (my sites) as a great resource.
When you create content your big challenge is to get it
noticed and indexed by the search engines, so that people
can follow links from there to your site. It's actually
fairly easy - but time and labor intensive.
If your content is "viral" it will be something that
others will happily share. Examples include in-depth
articles, essays that touch people on a deep emotional
level, or humorous videos that you post on YouTube.
Of the three methods of getting traffic (buying, borrowing,
and creating it) my favorite has to be borrowing it...
with creating it second. I generally only buy traffic
when I need a really quick surge to test my website's
The key to generating an absolute flood of free traffic
is getting noticed, getting backlinks, etc., from high
traffic websites such as Google, Craig's List,
Yahoo, YouTube, and the various bookmarking and
social networking sites.
This can be as simple is searching through Yahoo
Answers for questions on your area of expertise, and
then posting a great answer - along with an appropriate
link to your website or product.
It can be as simple as searching through YouTube for
videos on your area of expertise, and then leaving a
comment along with a link sharing that they can find
more information on the topic at your site.
It can be as simple as using the search engines to
locate dozens or even hundreds of blogs and forums
in your niche, and then interacting with these
There's only one problem with most of the methods that
I just mentioned. They can be time consuming and labor
intensive. Just locating active communities in your niche
can literally take hours.
I do have a secret. I use automated software to monitor
and notify me of active blogs, forums, and communities
in my niche. I use automated software to notify me when
they are discussing my area of expertise or there is
a new video posted pertaining to my area of expertise.
When I discover a new resource, I then analyze it, and
if appropriate, I interact with that high traffic site,
and leave a link back to my site, which is a perfectly
So there you have my secret for generating literally
hundreds of thousands of free hits to even my newest
sites. Of course, your site has to be about something
that people are interested it.
I do strongly advocate using software to automate many of
the mundane processes such as just finding these sites.
Many webmasters really struggle with website traffic
generation, and there is absolutely no need to. You
merely find the huge pools of traffic interested in
your topic, and then you stand underneath the waterfall,
and enjoy the cool, refreshing flow of new visitors.
Willie Crawford has been marketing goods and services online
since 1996. With very busy websites in dozens of niches, he
teaches that the secret is automating the flow of traffic,
since without traffic you don't really have a web business.

I have several joint ventures that I'm looking
for JV partners for.
One is a $97 monthly membership that pays 50%
recurring commission. This is ideal for an ezine
publisher who serves Internet marketers.
Another is a real estate product that pays $800
per sale in commission. The real estate product

members about the product via a mailing or two
and collect the commissions when they are taught

NO, I Have Not Turned Blackhat...

that I've gotten in the past 2 months.
That software (membership) is at:
A number of people emailed, PM'ed, Twittered me, etc.
asking if I'd gone blackhat.
The way that I use the software in that package is
completely "whitehat" although, like many tools, it
has the potential for others to abuse it.
I just use it to save me about 40 hours per WEEK

Over the last few days I've learned some things about
how top online marketers actually generate website
traffic that I knew you'd want to know about.
For years, we knew that there had to be some secret
tools or tactics that they were using but not telling
us about. How else could they be getting so much
more traffic that we were?
What I learned was how some online marketers totally
dominate the search engine listings for many of
their very competitive keywords... and it's probably
not something that you would have ever guessed.
Take a look at: http://IncredibleWebsiteTraffic.com
Some of the gurus have had exclusive access to
software that lets them pull in incredible traffic
from some of the busiest websites out there.
This software was created by the top SEO software
expert... someone that hangs out with the gurus at
seminars and conferences, but that they rarely
talk about. He is a programming and software testing
"madman" who spends an incredible amount of time
developing, testing and tracking new programs.

Meet A Traffic Generation Mad Scientist...
A few months ago, while sitting around in the hotel
lobby at a seminar in Orlando, Florida, I was shown a suite
of website traffic generation software that is now a
MAJOR part of my marketing mix.
That software has helped to generate over $60,000 in
affiliate sales in a single WEEK!
However, when I was first shown the software, which is
designed to divert traffic from some of the web's most
popular sites to your target sites, I was very
The software automates the process of posting
to certain sites, building pages on site that
encourage you to do that, and networking on sites
such as Craig's List, Yahoo, Google, and numerous
social networking sites that I won't list here.
The software is NOT designed to abuse those sites
but to automate the mundane parts that you now
spend countless hours doing.
Anyway, I was assured that the software could generate
so much traffic for me, that I was skeptical to say the
least, but wanted to believe that it could do what the
programmer told me that it would do.
I liked the programmer (noticing that we have similar
values) but wondered if the software was too "blackhat."
He pointed out to me that he offered it only to those
who would use it ethically, and that those who
abused the software would be quickly shut off
from access to it.
Hesitantly, I agreed to TEST the software, and that's
what I did for two months. The software suite has over
30 different pieces of software, each one designed for a
very specific purpose. I selected the ones that fit my
marketing style, and what I felt comfortable with, and
those are the ones that I tested.
Well, I was shocked at how much new traffic it generated
... and how quickly!
By the time that I saw the programmer again at a seminar
in Austin, Texas, I asked HOW I could share his software
with some of my best customers.
He told me to send them here:
Today, I'd like to introduce you to my friend Bishop.
He has created some of the most amazing traffic
generation software that I've even seen... and he keeps
working away in his own testing lab, constantly coming
out with new or improved stuff.
I call him "the traffic generation mad scientist."
Take a look at Bishop's software, and let me know if you
have any questions.
WARNING: This software could send you a lot of traffic
fairly quickly, so factor that in as you look over Bishop's
website. Make sure that you have the support staff and
infrastructure in place!
He did tell me that he's only going to make his software
available to my friends for 10 days... then he's taking it
off the market.
When you see the site, you'll understand why Bishop doesn't
want too many people having access to his tools. Check it out

My Response To A Refund Request - A Few Minutes After They Purchased!
A customer just requested a refund, which I cheerfully
issued, but I couldn't help also pointing out her real
problem... as I see it. I thought that I'd share that
conversation with you.
From the customer... via my helpdesk:
"I JUST bought this book. I skimmed through it and I was
hoping for some new fast cash information.. but all of
the info in this ebook... I already know and have hundreds
of references to on my computer... There is nothing new in
here for me... can I please get a refund?"
My response to a ticket that I probably should have let one
of my support people handle :-)
This is not all of the reply. The first part just confirmed
that we were issuing the refund immediately. Here's the
part that I wanted to share:
"As one of the authors of the ebook, and someone who will
earn several hundred thousand dollars this month, I will
tell you that the ebook is packed full of solid information.
Many of the authors will actually earn well over $1 million
in their web businesses this year.
The ebook was not written to be a get rich quick ebook but
to give you solid business models that work. The stuff that
I shared for example is some of the same materials that I
teach in seminar costing as much as $5000.
Since you do already have lots of info in hundreds of
references on your computer, may I suggest that what you
really need is this bootcamp:
Respectfully and Lovingly,
That response really was written with a lot of love
because I could feel the person's desperation. However,
they were chasing after fast cash so fast that they
couldn't take a deep breath and start implementing the
real solution to their problem.
I hope that you are not in a similar situation.
I also encourage you to check out The Internet Marketing
Momentum Bootcamp. It WILL get you focused and
moving forward... massively!

Help this singer, her father will grow your biz two-fold
In case you missed this email...
Okay this is a really different email than anything I’ve ever
sent you. This email will give you the opportunity to experience
a two-fold growth in business---get ten thousand dollars in
training to do it -- but also launch a new singing star---and
show the folks in Hollywood the real power of Internet marketing
when you and my other subscribers get involved. Please send this
email on to just two other people.
Amanda Holmes won “Best Music Video Of the Year” from the Los
Angeles Music Awards and is a very hot and up-and-coming singer
with a debut single hitting iTunes on June 3.
Her father, Chet Holmes, is the author of the hardcover
best-selling landmark business book, The Ultimate Sales Machine.
This book is launching in paperback the same day!
Hence the idea to help Amanda hit the top of iTunes and have her
father help you in return – he’s arranged for you to get ten
thousand dollars in training programs from legendary trainers or
thinkers such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Tony Robbins,
Guerrilla Marketing, T. Harv Eker, and so on.
For Amanda: We’re going to ask you to go and vote on her single-
hot or not---and after you vote, you can buy her single on
iTunes and help her out---by all means, spend 99 cents and let’s
drive this sincere and good-hearted girl to the top of iTunes.
For you: Ten Thousand Dollars in Gifts for You when you get this
Chet Holmes teaches perhaps the most important business lesson
you will ever learn for creating a fast growing and well run
business. In a sentence, here it is: “You don’t get to be a
master by doing four thousand things, you get to be a master by
doing twelve things, four thousand times.”
In The Ultimate Sales Machine, Chet lays out, in twelve
info-packed chapters, the twelve skills that make all
businesspeople true masters at growing revenues. Four of the
chapters in this book are designed specifically to double
revenues within twelve months. While the book doubles your
income, you also get the ten thousand dollars worth of training
So go now and vote on Amanda and get her Dad’s book and be a
piece of history. Show the record label execs that we can put
someone at the top of iTunes just with viral marketing and then
put your business at the top with this fantastic book, The
Ultimate Sales Machine.
P.S. Here are a few business-building insights from Chet as my
Insight one: Best Buyer Strategy. Chet lays out, step by step,
how every company should have a special effort to get their
dream clients or dream affiliates. He tells how one affiliate
won him fifteen million and how you can get affiliates like that
to help market your product or service. He reveals the coveted
secrets of how he got- and you can get too- more than sixty
Fortune 500 clients.
Chet Holmes teaches how you can pick up the telephone and call
(and get on the phone) CEO’s of the world’s largest companies
just like Chet did, clients like Solomon Brothers, Wells Fargo
Bank, America Express, Estee Lauder, Ford, Morgan Stanley and so
on (all clients of Chet’s).
Insight two: The Stadium Pitch: What if you could have all your
potential buyers all in a giant stadium and you could go out and
present to all of them all at once.
First question: Are you ready right now? 99.99% of companies
surveyed are NOT ready.
Second question: While we know you want to make sales in that
stadium, what are the thirteen other “strategic objectives” you
can accomplish with an opportunity like that? Learn this and see
a nine-fold increase in results from the same efforts you’re
already making. This is an amazing concept and it has really
helped every company that has deployed it. This is something
truly original, not taught anywhere else and it really, really
dramatically increases your ability to get in front of a lot
more buyers without spending a penny more.
Chet’s book is packed with rare insights, but also with the
full-on practical steps to see these powerful insights manifest
results quickly in your business. How to sell better, market
better and manage better. Chet was the top producer in every
position held. He then went to work for billionaire Charlie
Munger where he doubled the sales of nine different divisions, a
few of them two or three years in a row.
He is so methodical in this process that his success, like
yours, is a certainty. This man is a scientist about success.
Breaking it down into just twelve areas. Simple, straightforward
but highly effective methods of creating for yourself “The
Ultimate Sales Machine.”
Go to your bookstore or to the link below and get a few copies
of this book (one for each key staff member). You’ve never had a
book you’ll highlight more or breakdown into steps for success.
Then go to a special site (given at the site below) with your
“receipt number” and that will give you access to the 100
training programs that Chet persuaded all his friends to give to
Are you ready to double your business while also helping Chet’s
Daughter, Amanda? Helping Amanda shows the folks in Hollywood
that America yearns for songs with meaning, with some depth,
with some heart.

and business success in the world today. This incredible book

worth of training programs for your trouble.
Making Internet Marketing Seminars Pay For Themselves
Many people look at Internet marketing seminars
and view them as an expense.
I see them as an investment that pays me 100
times what I spend.
So for those still thinking about attend my seminar :wink:
here are some ways that I've recouped my investments
over the years.
1) At every seminar that I've ever attended, people have
swapped business cards. 90% of people go home,
stick those business cards in a desk drawer somewhere
and never look at them again.
I take a digital photo with many of the people I meet,
then when I get home I add the new people that I met to
my contact manager built into Send Out Cards: http://SendOutCards.com/willie
I then send a greeting card to each person that I met
telling them how nice it was to meet them, maybe reminding
them of something that we discussed, and suggest that w
stay in touch.
The Send Out Cards system allows me to upload that
digital photo right to the greeting card... so if they don't
remember who I am the photo is a nice reminder...
and may even cause them to hold on to the card longer.
2) Whenever I'm going to be attending a seminar, and
I'm also an affiliate for that seminar, I log into my
Send Out Cards database, and often pull up a list
off all contact in a certain location... for example my
next seminar is in Atlanta... so I'll pull up all of my
Atlanta contacts... and send them all a card letting them
know that I'm hosting a seminar in Atlanta. Since they
can't use the excuse of travel and accommodation
expenses, the decision to attend for them should be
3) I also add my contacts to "sublists" within my
SendOutCards database, so I have lists of people
that I met at specific events. When I'm going to another
of the same event, I'll often send those people a card
suggesting that we talk if they're going to also be
I'll include signup details in case they haven't already
register (using an affiliate link), and maybe let them
know that I'll be looking for JV partners, and invite
them to let me know what they are working on.
As an example, I'll be attending JV Alert Philly this
weekend, where I will be seeking JV partners on a
project... so I HAVE sent cards to a few people that
I definitely knew would be there and that I didn't want
to miss talking to.
In case you're not picking up on it, the most valuable
thing that I get from many seminars is the business
cards. The addresses, phone numbers, email addresses,
and all of the other data that's on your typical business
card is PRICELESS.
It's priceless only if you use it, but if you DO you can
easily build a powerful database of very proactive
business people, and the built in contact manager of
Send Out Cards makes it incredibly easy to use.
As a seminar promoter, this is also my secret weapon.
I have a database of people with a proven propensity
to attend live seminars! Who better to send a letter
or greeting card to telling them about other live
seminars that I'm hosting, or am an affiliate for?
Just food for thought!
By the way... if you're not familiar with Send Out Cards,
it's the system that I use to send out real, full-color
greeting cards right over the internet for about $1
each. You design them online, and when you click the
send button, the company prints them, stuffs them in
an envelopes... along with optional gifts, and mails them
via first class mail.
I can layout a card using "placeholder" such as names,
hometown, kids names, etc., and then send the same
"personalized" card to any number of people in my
database... much like you would with an autoresponder :-)
They're at: http://SendOutCards.com/willie

you'd like a free trial account :-)

An $8000 Haircut?
"Hello David, I just took a late lunch break and
listened to the MP3. Here are my thoughts...
"Brilliant! David, what you have here is pure marketing
gold. When you and Willie talk, it's just dynamite. Even
though I've been consulting for years, I found myself
getting several "AHA!" moments throught out your conversation.

your plan, and as a result collect a few thousand dollars within
just days, then they have no business being in ANY kind of
business. It's THAT simple.
I actually felt like I was eavesdropping on a private conversation
I wasn't supposed to hear. There were just too many gold nuggets
in your audio for me to mention, but one particular "magic question" you mentioned in your call, has allowed me to recently walk out of
my favourite hair salon with an $8000 check in my hand....and I
didn't even ask for it. When David Preston and Willie Crawford talk, you better grab a pen and pad and listen.!"
Thanks David and Willie,
The above testimonial was about the $9.95 OTO that's
a part offered after you get this:
If you haven't already grabbed your copy of David Preston's
report on how he gets offline businesses to call him up -
literally begging to give him $5000 checks for
consultations, do that now. Get it here:
Let me give you a brief bit of history...
David wrote that report after reading a report by Andrew
Cavanagh on marketing to offline businesses.
He was also inspired by a forum post that I made detailing
how I had local businesses tripping over themselves to hand me
David studied what Andrew and I did and then applied his own
brilliant twist. His twist has the U.S. government
advertising his services, rounding up referrals, and then
instructing them to contact David.
After I read David's report, I did 1 hour 40 minute interview
with him. I wanted to make sure that I understood EXACTLY
how he did things.
Now I'm using David's system.
When David showed ANDREW his system, Andrew, who RARELY
endorses anyone's product, sent out the following email:
Begin Andrew's Email:
I thought long and hard before recommending this "Offline Gold"
product and following the instructions I'm about to give you is
I'm not in the habit of promoting other marketers' products and
quite frankly some of the products coming out lately using my
"Offline Gold" label without my permission have been complete
But David Preston is the real deal.
David has made tens of thousands of dollars in less than a week
with the Offline Gold strategy he's willing to share with you.
But there is a problem and this is why I was reluctant to
promote his product.
He's released a 10 page report that reveals how you can get the
US government to send you more brick and mortar business
clients than you could ever handle.
The report is short and could certainly use some more detailed
information...it's a bit marginal at the 19.95 price tag.
But after you purchase this report David gives you a chance to
purchase an audio where he and Willie Crawford share the secrets
of marketing yourself to offline businesses.
David talks about business owners desperate to give him checks
of 1,500, and 5,000 dollars.
And exactly how he gets an endless stream of clients without
having to talk to brick and mortar businesses one on one.
They literally come to him.
This audio runs for one hour and 40 minutes and is easily worth
90 dollars or more.
Best of all when you buy David's report at 19.95 you get the
audio for just 9.95 (less than ten bucks!)
And David's follow up includes some excellent email lessons on
exactly how he implements his system.
So here's the deal:
I recommend you go buy David Preston's report for 19.95 and buy
the back end audio for 9.95 immediately after you purchase.
Both products combined are a bargain at a total of just 29.90...
And one more important point:
If you're from outside of the United States I also do NOT
recommend you purchase this report at present.
While the method used certainly can work in countries like the
UK or Australia the "how to" is geared specifically for the USA.
David's working on this and I'll let you know if he updates his
report but until then I'd suggest US buyers only...
P.S. Let me repeat. I do NOT suggest you buy David's report
You really must get the audio upsell immediately after you buy
to get true value.
One last word.
In one day David brought in enough clients to create over 50
thousand dollars in business using the method he reveals in this
And all those clients came to him.
This really is the best product I've seen so far that tapers
perfectly into my report Offline Gold For The Online Marketer.
Go claim your copy of the report AND the audio now...
End Andrew's email:
Go ahead and get you copy of the report now... along with the
audio that you will LOVE:
