It was the first day of the new millennium and he greeted it by walking away from a $20 an hour job to start his own business. He had never been in business for himself before and the endless possibilities were exhilarating and exciting. The man had planned well for his departure and began his new business with a few prime clients in place. With hard work and perseverance, he replaced his previous salary within two years. Then the unthinkable happened. Like the orchestrated detonation of a condemned building, his business collapsed in 2002 due to a major shift in his industry. The bottom fell out and there was nothing the man could do to stop it.
His income dropped by 80%, and in spite of 13 attempts to go back to a “real job”, every opportunity fell through. Relying on food stamps to feed his family, his house in active foreclosure, the man knew there had to be another way. In spite of the bleak outlook, he knew he had made the right choice to start his own business. With a renewed commitment to himself and his family to find the answer he was looking for, the man continued to push ahead with a dream of something more.
Slowly, he rebuilt his business, saved his house and got off food stamps. But in spite of all his hard work and effort, the answer the man searched for alluded him. A year later, when a stranger’s comment reminded him of something he had forgotten from ten years previous, a spark of curiosity captured the man’s imagination with an idea of possibility. How could he have so easily forgotten a “miracle” that had saved his family once before? With little outside help and a lot of hard work, the man ventured into a brand-new marketplace with a vision for the future and his first book in hand. That was five years ago and that man was me. The discovery (or rather, re-discovery, was the Public Domain.
In the past five years, Public Domain content has changed my life. Through the products I’ve created from Public Domain content, I’ve been able to generate a consistent six-figure income every year. The reason why that’s so amazing and such good news for you is that the copyright laws haven’t changed and Public Domain content is more accessible now than ever before. And so I have decided that, in honor of my 5-year anniversary in working with Public Domain content, I am going to teach a brand-new series that reveals the blueprints I’ve discovered and developed to create profit-pulling products from Public Domain content.
In “Public Domain Blueprint,” I am going to reveal the best strategies, the best blueprints for turning the proven content from the Public Domain into laser-focused, profit-producing products using every media type available: Books, Serials, Patents, Government, Images, Audio & Video. You might think that I’ve shared all my secrets about the Public Domain, but you would be wrong. In “Public Domain Blueprint”, however, they all come out. I’m holding nothing back.
If you’re ready for the next level of product creation (and you’d like to get in on the fun at an 85% discount), click the link below and get ready to discover the Public Domain like you’ve never seen it before. Because I’m going to tell you what works and what doesn’t. Click below!
Over the past several years, I’ve explored pretty much every type of content available in the Public Domain, from books and magazines to patents, videos and more. In that time, I concluded that I had pretty much seen it all…that there were no new surprises available for me to discover. Recently, I discovered I was wrong.
I put together a two-page report that explains my discovery. Don’t let the small page count fool you…what I’m revealing in these two pages is HUGE! Find out for yourself!

As with “Photo Profit Secrets,” we also have a dedicated Facebook Group. With this course, however, I am adding a new element. At the end of the series, I will be compiling the photos submitted for homework from all the participants to create a group Photobook! Once it is published, each participant will be able to buy your own copies at cost to keep or sell. I’m really excited about this because I know each participant will be contributing great photos! Join us HERE:
You’re at a conference and you see someone you recognize. Smiles flash and you rush together to exchange hugs and greetings. It’s been a while and you’re excited to see each other. During the course of catching up, your friend asks if you have a copy of their new book. “No,” you respond, “I didn’t even know you wrote a book! I’d love a copy!” They take a book out of their briefcase, open the front cover, and write a special note. You flip through it and express congratulations.
“So have you created any new products, lately?” they ask. You go on to share about your latest webinar series and e-book you created. It’s selling well and they are excited for you. And that’s when the awkwardness begins. You’d love to share it with them, but since it’s digital, you have to e-mail them the login information later, if you remember to. Even though it’s a great product, sharing a link with your friend feels impersonal. That night, you flip through their book and you think, “I need to create a physical book.”
I LOVE creating digital products…love them. They’re easy for me and can be sold any time of the day or night without my personal involvement at all. It’s the ideal product scenario…almost. Here’s the thing…even though I’m pretty prolific (I’ve created over 60 products), the products I love to show off the most are the physical ones! Why? Because you can actually SHOW them to people and GIVE them away. Of course, you can sell them too! The truth is that, as tactile humans, we “need” to feel the touch of things. It makes them more “real” somehow. And because of the “realness” factor, we assign physical products a greater perceived value.
Let me ask you a question…as a professional photographer, if I were to offer you a high-resolution digital copy of one of my photographs or a framed print, which would you take? You would obviously take the framed print because you can SHARE it easier with others. Visitors to your home would be able to see it hanging in your office or den and comment how amazing it looks. You could then thank them and share how it was a gift from your friend. Physical products establish a connection with your peers and audience that digital products will NEVER create.
I recently attended NAMS6 in Atlanta. David Perdew, the event creator, invited me to join the faculty and this was my first event. Knowing that I would have requests for business cards while there, I decided to do something different. I purchased greeting card blanks and envelopes at the local craft store and had 4” X 6” prints of some of my favorite photographs printed at Target. Using two-sided tape, I attached the photos to the blank cards and signed my name on them. On the back of the card, I pasted a shipping label that included my contact information.
At the conference, when someone requested a business card, I pulled out my 5” X 6.5” greeting cards and let them pick their favorite photo. People loved them! A few people asked for more than one. Now let me ask you…when is the last time someone asked you for multiple copies of your business card? Do you think my card will stand out compared to ALL the other business cards collected given it’s MUCH larger than the others? Sure it will! One last thing…David asked we all put our business cards in a bucket for prize drawings. Do you think mine card was easy for the person drawing the cards to find? You bet! I won a portable drive!
The point I want to make here is that, if you want to truly have an impact on your audience, you HAVE to create physical products! You should have a book at the very least. Now before you start thinking that making physical products is hard, I’m going to stop you right there because it’s just not true! Take my cards, for instance. If you can apply two-sided tape to a photo and position it on a blank card, you can make your own. That’s just one example of many…you get the idea! It’s only hard if you make it hard.
Just like with digital products, creating the “right” physical products requires good market research, the right tools and content! The selling process is also a bit different as well. Fortunately for you, I have demystified the process of creating physical products in my course, “Physical Product Success Secrets.” Over the course of four videos, I share a clear plan of how to create your own physical products. Video #1 covers the Mechanics of creating products. Video #2 dives into Research. Video #3 explores the different type of products you can create (and how), while Video #4 lays out how to market and sell those products. Did you know that with physical products, you can tap into a stream of 175 million “buying” prospects that you don’t have access to with digital products? Yep! I show you how in “Physical Product Success Secrets!”
And…by the way…THIS weekend (Labor Day), you can get started with creating your OWN physical products for less…I’ve discounted the course for the next 4 days! Finally, you won’t have to feel left out when you’re at your next family gathering, conference or event. Think about how good it’s going to feel to jot a note and share your product with a smile, knowing that you’ve just touched another person’s life. How cool is that?!

Here is the next strategy in our “30 Covert Strategies” series…
2. Publish E-Books. When it comes to e-books, I’m lumping all types of e-books into one description here. These would include PDF’s you sell or give away from your website, as well as e-books published for the Kindle, Nook, iPad and every other tablet and mobile device available now and in the future! While I love print books, the truth is that e-book sales are on the rise, and that’s not about to change. E-readers have changed everything. With the number of e-readers, tablets and smartphones already in use, plus more being purchased everyday, you cannot ignore creating and selling e-books…unless you hate money.
Selling your own PDFs created from Public Domain content is pretty straightforward since most word processors and page layout programs output directly to PDF. Publishing to the other platforms can present a few more challenges, but don’t let that stop you. Amazon offers excellent tutorials for publishing to the Kindle, as does Barnes & Noble for the Nook. Other sites, like Smashwords.com, enable you to publish to all the major reader platforms by supplying your book(s) in the EPUB format, the standard for most readers. The same book creation strategies I shared with Print Books apply here. As a matter of fact, I would HIGHLY recommend creating BOTH print books AND e-books of every Public Domain-based book you publish. There is no reason to NOT do that…unless you like leaving money on the table!
I’m writing a new series of posts that break down the BEST ways to profit from Public Domain content. To kick the new series off, here is Strategy #1!
1. Publish Print Books. You would think that republishing books from the Public Domain would be a no-brainer strategy for marketers to pursue; especially with today’s high-quality POD technology; yet few actually do it. Here are a few covert approaches to consider for creating print books from Public Domain content: Rather than publish existing books as-is, consider pulling the BEST content from topically-related books to create a “new,” more laser-focused book with you listed as the editor or compiler. CreateSpace.com (owned by Amazon) makes it easy to create and publish your own print books, offering templates and step-by-step instructions!
Alternatively, also consider finding related magazine articles from the Public Domain and publish them in print form. Each article would represent a chapter (unless it’s a really short article). There are hundreds of thousands of pages of content available in the Public Domain in magazine form just waiting to be re-purposed. The goal here is to create print books that people actually want to buy and read rather than to just publish content for the sake of “getting it out there.” CreateSpace also enables you to publish full-color print books as well. The cost per unit is higher, but with the millions of photographs and illustrations available in the Public Domain, the opportunities here are endless.
Need ideas on topics to focus on? Here is a hot one…we are just now entering the timeframe of the 150 anniversary of the Civil War. For the next three years, there will be a LOT of celebrations and events related to this country-changing historical event! Capitalize on it!
As you know, this weekend marks Father’s Day, a special time to honor our Dad’s. If your Dad is still living, make sure you let him know what he means to you. If he has passed on like my Dad, take a few moments to reflect on one special moment you and your Dad spent together. For me, I’m going out to shoot photos, just like he and I used to do together!
To celebrate this special day, I decided to do something special…offer a special 25% discount off of many of my most popular products…some of which I’ve never offered at a discount before now! It’s the perfect time to invest in your business and future by investing in yourself…and for the next two days, you can invest less and gain more!
Here is what to do next:
- Click on the link (or links) to the product(s) you want to invest in and redeem your 25% discount.
- Click the order button on the Sales Page
- On the Order Page, enter FATHER into the Coupon Code area below the total and click “Apply.”
- The discounted price should then be reflected in the total.
- Finish the checkout process. That’s it!
If you’re like me, you love to learn anything new that will help move your business and income to the next level. This weekend is the perfect opportunity
to do that and save some cash!
Committed to your ongoing success!
PS: On Tuesday, I’m revealing all my secrets to creating amazing book and product cover designs. Watch for the announcement. This will be a first!
Here’s a fun challenge for you…
I’ve been speaking at Simple 3: Video Velocity this weekend in Anaheim, CA this weekend and the hands-on workshops have been awesome. Challenging the attendees to actually DO what we’re teaching so that, in the end, they actually have finished videos uploaded and available on YouTube and on their website. Some of them are doing it kicking and screaming…lol…but they’re getting their videos done. It’s very cool.
And that brings me to the challenge…
I’ve been talking about the importance and need to create your own videos. It’s not a suggestion…it’s a necessity if you’re serious about building an online business. Have you created any videos that are actually online yet? If yes…awesome! Produce more! If no, what are you waiting for?
I want to challenge you to create your first (or a new) video TODAY and post the link on my blog so I can see it. I want to know you’re getting this and DOING it! Plus…it could be fun. Now…about the video you’re going to create…it can be ANY kind of video, such as:
- A Live Action Video: Talk into your video camera, flip cam, smart phone, etc. Share a one-minute tip you can share with the world that can help the viewer.
- A Screencast Video: Create a quick Powerpoint video on your product or service, or again, to share a valuable tip or insight.
- A Mixed Media Video: Use Animoto or other video program to create a video with photos, text, music, etc. that shares something helpful, fun or uplifting.
- A Live Broadcast Video: Setup, broadcast and record a brief video on UStream where you share something of value to your audience (or potential audience).
Once your video is created, upload it to YouTube and share the link in the comments section below of this article. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! And, by the way, if you haven’t figured this out yet, I am offering you exposure to your message on my blog at no cost. Also, for everyone who takes up my challenge and completes it, I will give you a special bonus…full access to my Master DVD Templates and my Master Powerpoint Templates (which currently isn’t available).
I also want to remind you that, this weekend only, my Limitless Video Content course is being specially discounted just for you! Instead of the regular price of $197, you can grab it this weekend at 61% off…just $77! It’s the last time I’ll be offering it at this price…ever. Don’t miss out. It’s one of the best courses I’ve ever taught.
So here is what to do next…
Pick up your copy of Limitless Video Content at the Weekend Special offer.
Have fun creating your video!
Create your video and get it uploaded to YouTube today!
Go to my blog and post the link (once I see you’ve posted your video, I’ll send you the download info for your bonus.
Now get busy…grin.
Have you hit a roadblock in your efforts to make a decent living on the Internet?
Don’t feel alone. Most people never make it past the first bump in the road, much less the real full-strength roadblocks that can sit right in your roadway to the top.
It’s not that they aren’t working at it.
Lots of people spend years reading and studying everything that they can get their hands on and from that group an even smaller group actually do something.
Most of those people wind up frustrated and spinning their wheels, wondering all the while why they can’t be successful.
The worst part is that they know that people are successful at making a decent living on-line and yet despite all of the reams of advice that they receive, all of the products they purchase and all of the work that they put in, they just can’t seem to get past the roadblocks.
Maybe this is you …
- Feeling like you just can’t get started?
- Need something to get you off your “behind” and into action?
- Feeling like you need some big-time help?
- Want some inside techniques that really work?
- Want a clear handle on the basics?
- Need some joint venture partners to kick you up to the next level?
- Need to get out of your basement and meet real people that are already doing what you want to do?
- Need answers to a few technical questions?
- Need help putting everything together?
- Need some feedback on your next project?
Feel like you just can’t break into the “big-time” success that you see others having?
You will meet at least two major roadblocks when you first try to create and sell products or services on the Internet.
- Creating your first product and the tools that you need to sell it. (web site, graphics, packaging, etc.)
- Getting the first sale.
One “strategy” I’ve used over the years to help me BLAST through those roadblocks has been attending LIVE events! They provide you with an opportunity to learn from the experts who have been where you are, but also enable you to sit down and talk with like-minded people face-to-face and get questions answered.
Ken McArthur’s jvAlert is a great event for that type on face-to-face connecting because Ken wisely created the event for that purpose, and it has paid off for thousands of up-and-coming marketers just like you!
The next jvAlert is coming up shortly in Orlando and I’ve decided to team up with Ken and many other friends and Internet Marketers to make THIS jvAlert an unforgettable experience!
Ken is a friend of mine, who sees the insides of “real life” projects every day. In fact, he is at the center of a group of people that work together in a regular “idea factory” of a place with his jvAlert.
You would be amazed at the people that are in this group.
Ken actually arranges for these top-level people to work with you on YOUR projects and then they turn around and promote your products too.
Ken invited me to be a part of this event and I grabbed the chance right away.
Then he started telling me some of the other people that are coming. Many of them my friends and mentors…
Imagine working on your project with people like Ken McArthur, Gary Ambrose, Jason Anderson, Michael Angier, Phil Basten, Alan Bechtold, Nashlah Boyayan, Shahar Boyayan, Hollis Carter, Joe Clayton, Lee Collins, Paul Counts, Willie Crawford, Glenn Dietzel, Ron Dilbert, Andy Duncan, Brian T. Edmondson, Ray Edwards, Mike Evans, Stephanie Frank, Carl Galletti, Edie Galley, Michael Glaspie, Ross Goldberg, John Halpin, Mark Hendricks, Eric Holmlund, Shel Horowitz, Michael Humphreys, Bob Jenkins, Audrey Kerwood, Sohail Khan, Walt Laurel, Simon Leung, Skye Mangrum, Jane Mark, PJ McClure, Deb Micek, Daven Michaels, Melanie Milletics, Joey Montez, Chris Moos, Cori Padgett, Scott Paton, David Perdew, Daniel Perry, Susan Preston, David Preston, Laura Roman Lopez, Marlon Sanders, Thom Scott, Brad Semp, Felicia Slattery, Joey Smith, Frank Sousa, Erik Stafford, Howard Tiano, Jeff Wellman, Mike Wesely, Jess Kennedy Williams, Bob Yeager and more, more, more!
They are ALL going to be there and a pile of other experts too! Imagine what this Super Panel to do to help move your business forward!
So where does YOUR project come into this?
Ken has developed a very unique “Hot Seat” that is perfectly designed to get you feedback and even more crucial, exposure to people that can really make a difference for your project.
Here’s the way it works …
When you register for the event, you are given the opportunity to apply to be on the “Hot Seat.”
The expert panel selects the best ideas and those ideas are assigned a spot on the “Hot Seat” schedule.
The presenter of the idea prepares a 15 minute presentation to pitch their idea to the “Hot Seat” panel of experts and all of the people who attend the event.
Then the fun begins …
You get to listen in as our panel grills the person on the “hot seat” and picks their project to bits.
Then we turn right around and build it back up with ideas from the best minds in the business.
You KNOW you are going to pick-up some great ideas from this series whether you are in the “Hot Seat” or comfortably watching someone else squirm a little as these top-level professionals show you exactly (and specifically) how to take a starting idea and turn it into REAL money.
But, even more important than that, you and I can spend some quality time together one on one. I know that we can come up with ways to work together that will make this new year great for both of us. Whether you want to work with Public Domain content, or create your own content, we can definitely determine the BEST strategies that will work for you!
If you have any questions on this, don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m definitely going to be there, so let’s not let this opportunity to get together pass by. Plus, because I am planning to spend extra time in the Orlando are, we can definitely meet up!
There’s limited space, so don’t wait.
