My Friends and I Laughed at This Kid’s Dream. Then He Reached It

July 20th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

A guy I knew in my high school class — and who came to my wedding, too, now that I think of it — had a ridiculous dream as a kid.

He was going to be a TV weatherman.

Sure you are, we said.

There are about five openings in the whole country. Good luck with that! I’m sure we’ll see you on TV.

We were nasty little snots.

Well, if you happen to live in Nashville, you may know meteorologist Dan Thomas of NBC’s WSMV channel 4. The SOB did it after all.

Before working in Nashville, by the way, Dan was stationed in New Orleans, where he reported on Hurricane Katrina, before having to be evacuated from New Orleans.

Dan and I, in turn, grew up with Todd Gross as our weatherman, on channel 5 in Boston.

Todd Gross, though, evacuated the entire profession. He now works completely online, making massive sales of his own products and affiliate products.

This week he’s releasing Video Builder, a rather amazing video app none of your friends will have, and which will impress the you-know-what out of them, and your prospects.

Video is king online, and Todd’s software gives you an unfair advantage over the mass of wannabes out there.

Todd’s mastery of video has been central to his insane success online.

He’s giving a sneak peak of Video Builder tomorrow night, and giving away ten free copies. Plus 100 smackers to each of three lucky people.

It takes 10 seconds to sign up to win.

Woo hoo:

How to Look Like a Tech Whiz and Build an Audience

July 19th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

Know what’s fun?

Looking like a whiz.

Looking like a (the?) leader in your niche.

Leaving the impression that you must have a big team behind you.

Sometimes it’s something trivial, but even those things can leave impressions.

Little example: on my other (libertarian) email list, I sometimes include embedded videos in my emails. Yet everyone knows you can’t embed a video in an email. Yet somehow I do it….


Here’s why I’m telling you this.

When I was a kid, my weatherman was Todd Gross, on ABC Channel 5 in Boston.

He’s not a weatherman anymore.

Why? Well, let’s just say he found his calling elsewhere.

In 2015 he did $160,000,000 in affiliate sales, and sales of his own products.

So yeah, now he gets his weather reports by checking an app on his phone, like the rest of us.

In particular, Todd is a whiz when it comes to video.

I’ve probably built 75% of my following out of my videos. So yeah, video works, and you’re leaving a lot of dough and a big audience on the table without it.

But it’s a pain, or it costs $$, or it looks crappy, or you just don’t want to do it.

Todd is just about to release some very inexpensive, user-friendly software that creates videos for you that’ll look like you spent a fortune on them.

Sign up for the sneak peak he’s giving, and you could be one of 10 people to win a copy for free.

I really want someone on my list to win.

All 10, now that’s just greedy.

But just one? Totally doable.

Click, and make me proud:


P.S. If you’re from Boston, like me, you’ll recognize Todd Gross at the link!

The Three Steps to the Smackers

July 8th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

No sweeping generalities here. Here, step by step, is what you as an aspiring online earner should do.

(One error: when I start discussing sites where you can find affiliate products, I say JVZoo specializes in affiliate marketing products, when I meant to say Internet marketing products.)

In the video I mention Aweber and Leadpages, as well as BenSettle.com.

The key tool you need is Builderall, since it has everything you’ll want under one roof: a website builder, an optin page builder, a mobile app builder, an email marketing service, and a ton more.

And all for less than what I pay every month for just my email service alone. That’s insane.

It’s without a doubt the biggest steal I’ve seen since getting into Internet marketing, and it’s going away in a few days. So if you have not taken leave of your senses, go and grab (they’ve already withdrawn the annual offer, but the monthly one is still there):


Letter From an Insane Asylum

July 7th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

I started my podcast in the days of the horse and buggy, technology-wise.

I had a website created by one service.

I have my episodes hosted by another service.

I have podcast tech support from yet another service.

I have my email list (that my podcast helps me build) run by another service.

I generate the opt-in forms I send people to with still another service.

It’s enough to make you insane.

Now forget podcasting for a minute, since you’re probably not a podcaster.

Suppose you just want to start your online business, or you want to earn some dough online, and you prefer not to lose your mental health.

Bare minimum would be an opt-in page builder and an email service, so you can collect email addresses and then send affiliate offers to that list.

Beyond those things, you might also want: a website builder; a membership site creator (so you can earn recurring income and/or sell courses); a mobile app builder (for added awesomeness); a design service to create eBook covers, videos, and info products; a heat map to find out where most of the activity on your site is; etc.

I can think of a bunch of ninja tools you might also want to have, too.

Now imagine not having to integrate 27 different products from 27 different companies, and instead getting all of this in a single place, on a single platform, for one smacker a day.

It’s too late for me. Save yourself:


Three Affiliate Programs That Pay My Bills

July 5th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

Here are three affiliate programs I’ve had a lot of success promoting (and therefore earning commissions from):

(1) The Ron Paul Curriculum. Well, duh: I created hundreds of videos for this K-12 homeschool program. I’m a natural to promote it. But it’s an excellent product for you, too — the retention rate is 95%, and you keep earning that $125 commission every year a family who joins through your link stays subscribed.

(2) Bluehost. Anyone you interact with online is at least potentially in the market for a website, and they’ll need hosting. Bluehost is a provider you can promote with confidence.

(3) Rocket Languages. Promote them only when they have sales, which they notify affiliates about in advance. Commissions are a generous 60%, and it’s a great product.

These are three high-quality, high-converting affiliate programs.

Beyond that, you’ll have to look around.

Good news: there’s a directory of some of the best affiliate programs around. You should have it in your arsenal.

Better news: pick up this directory and I’ll throw in as a bonus my video series helping you get started as an affiliate.

Price is leaping up within 48 hours tonight (July 7), so check it out:
