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 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!
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.
As information product developers, we often spend a lot of time trying to get traffic to our websites so that we can increase sales. More traffic = more sales…or so the theory goes. But we often get SO focused on “digital products” and “traffic getting” that we miss some huge opportunities for capitalizing on massive traffic that already exists. The catch, however, is that to benefit from this traffic, we need to sell PHYSICAL products, not digital ones (with one exception which I’ll address later).
I love creating digital products as much as the next person. They’re fast and easy to manage. But with the abundance of “physical product” traffic that is available, it’s time to re-think your product creation process. The truth is, that in many cases, your digital products can easily make the jump to physical with minimal effort. You will understand what I mean when I reveal the traffic sources.
I’ve been conducting a LOT of research and testing on sites like the ones I’m about to share BECAUSE of the traffic volume they receive…that’s the ONLY reason. The numbers are simply too big to ignore! As a matter of fact, I will go so far as to say that if you are not selling on ALL (or at least most) of the sites I’m about to mention, you’re missing a huge opportunity to boost your income. And the BEST news (as far as I’m concerned) is that Public Domain-based products are PERFECT for these sites! What websites am I talking about? Here is the list along with their traffic numbers (from Compete.com):
- Amazon.com (82.1 Million Visitors per Month)
- eBay.com (67.2 Million Visitors per Month)
- Etsy.com (6.5 Million Visitors per Month)
- Zazzle.com (5.7 Million Visitors per Month)
- CafePress.com (5.2 Million Visitors per Month)
- iOffer.com (1.9 Million Visitors per Month)
When it comes to selling physical products, the above sites are the cream of the crop. There are addition sites out there with traffic numbers under a million per month, but these six sites should be a part of your product-selling strategy…period…simply because of the traffic. Think about it, is it easier to create a river or stand in the middle of one? Obviously the latter approach is easier. By offering your products on the sites above, that is essentially what you’re doing…standing in the flow of their existing traffic!
So…what should you be selling there? Be smart and do your research. Find out what people are already buying and them sell them more of the same! Most of the sites offer best-seller listings…use them! And with today’s on-demand technologies, turning Public Domain content into physical products to sell couldn’t be easier!
Here are a few places to begin your research on the top three sites:

Over the past few months, I’ve been sharing strategies on how to increase online sales and profits with my subscribers. It’s been a great series and it’s still growing strong (with 30 strategies shared so far). What I decided to do was put together a document that contains all the awesome money-boosting strategies I’ve share to date so that everyone, whether on my list or not, can have access to this wealth of practical insight and strategy. Ultimately, my goal is to hit 50-60 profit-pumping strategies, but I have a feeling we could go higher because there are so many excellent ways to increase your sales and profits.
To access the first 30 strategies and get a peek at what the next 20 or so will be, just click on the link provided below and download the PDF. Oh, and make sure you actually DO something with what I share (even though it’s free) or I’ll charge you next time…lol.

When I think about all the influences that have affected my business in a good way, I’d have to say that live seminars have had the most profound effect. From learning new insights and strategies to meeting new friends and networking, seminars should be a vital part of your “continuing education” for your business. Most of my friends, JVs, speaking engagements and quantum leaps in my income have all come from live events…period.
I’ll never forget the first Big Seminar I attended (Armand Morin’s huge event). I was there as I guest of my friend, David Hancock of Morgan James Publishing. It was my first live event ever and I didn’t know ANYONE! I had just completed my Public Domain Code Book and had big dreams of connecting with someone…anyone…who would consider promoting the product to their list. I didn’t even have an affiliate program in place…lol. There were a few folks that I had started following and really wanted to meet them. One of those “gurus” was Pat O’Bryan, now a good friend of mine.
I wanted to show Pat my book because I knew he was using Public Domain content for product creation and was making a killing at it. The only problem was that every time I saw him at that Big Seminar, I chickened out. On the last day, right before the end of the event, I made up my mind that, no matter what, I was going to talk to Pat. As I walked up to open the doors to enter the event ballroom, the door suddenly swung open and nearly whacked me in the head, and standing right in front of me was Pat. We nearly ran into each other…lol. Well, long story short, I gave Pat a copy of my book, which ultimately resulted in him promoting it to his list, using it to teach from in his seminars and ultimately being invited to speak at several of his events. All because I was at THAT Big Seminar and talked with him. Seminars have also resulted in other important friendships and relationships with some of my favorite people in the world…some well known marketers and others who are just starting out!
And then there is the teaching…
Some of the best business strategies I’ve learned (AND implemented) came from live events! Most speakers really over deliver, but be prepared to take LOTS of notes. More importantly, when you get home, DO something with that info. By implementing strategies I learned at live events, I have ALWAYS seen my income jump…sometimes by a factor of 4 or 5. That’s powerful!
So…as you can tell…I strongly recommend that you make the investment in your business (and yourself) and get out to live events. Meet people, pay attention, hang out in the restaurant or bar and take lots of notes! If I am at the event, talk to me! I LOVE meeting my subscribers and blog readers! As a matter of fact, you will have an opportunity to benefit from the BEST seminar out there…the one I attended first that helped launch my online career…Big Seminar. The LAST one ever is happening November 5-7, 2010 in Las Vegas. I will be there networking and learning and I’d LOVE to connect with you there. This is ONE investment in your business that I cannot recommend highly enough.
Will I see you there? Hope so!
