The Mysterious Case of the Invisible Website Nobody Visited (Is This You?)

February 17th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

Bad Luck Ichabod had a beautiful website he thought the world would love.

Poor Bad Luck Ichabod didn’t know basic SEO (“Search Engine Optimization”).

His content kept getting buried on page 18 of a Google search. So nobody found out about his lovely site.

Bad Luck Ichabod was sad.

Bad Luck Ichabod had to resort to paying for visitors to his website — which can get costly very quickly, and doesn’t always end well.

The best kind of website traffic is free. And a lot of it can and should come from the search engines, particularly Google.

Our new eBook and video series, SEO Mastery, shows you what to do — and what to avoid — if you’d rather not have your content wind up languishing with Bad Luck Ichabod’s, on page 57 of a Google search.

I’ll be selling it later this year for $37. I’m giving it away for free when you pick up Review Wizard (which costs considerably less than $37). Just forward me your receipt.

Review Wizard is the (1) software and (2) video training from Brett Rutecky and Mike Thomas that shows you how to create a profitable review website.

Brett and Mike each run a product review website that earns each of them $30,000 per month on average.

They review a product, interview the creator, and earn commissions on sales.

As you can see, although there’s plenty of work involved, brain surgery it ain’t.

But get grabbing: the price of Review Wizard jumps after 11:59pm EST, and my bonus is going away, too:

Online Earner Exposes Himself More Than Naked Guy at Libertarian Convention

February 16th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

I spoke at last year’s Libertarian National Convention.

People liked what I had to say.

Later in the convention, a guy ran naked across the stage.

I will leave it to you to decide which event generated more chatter.

Mike Thomas, better known as Mike from Maine, is the naked libertarian stage-runner of online marketing.

He lays it all out there: every single dollar he’s earned online and every single dollar he’s spent building his online business over the past six years, he has recorded in meticulous detail and published for public view.

I’m sure plenty of people would rather run naked across a Libertarian Party stage than disclose that.

But he’s even more transparent than that: he’s also revealing exactly how he and his business partner Brett Rutecky create and run their product-review websites, which are the source of their online incomes. (They earn roundabout $30,000 per month, each, running a review website.)

There are two ways to react to this impressive number.

(1) People who know about review websites are likely to say, “Yes, if you put in the work, you could make a review website earn that much.”

(2) People who have no idea what a review website is, but who are sure nobody is really earning anything online, will say, “That’s impossible.” (Note: these people who sniff at others’ online efforts are nearly always broke, I find. I don’t take earning advice from broke people.)

For those of you in group (1), Mike and Brett are sharing Review Wizard, the software Brett created to do this, plus complete video training to get you going and monetizing.

Simple business model: review a product, perhaps interview the creator, earn commissions on sales.

Not rocket science.

And it sure as heck beats most jobs out there.

Plus, forward me your receipt and I’ll send you my bonus: SEO Mastery, an eBook and video series showing you how to get your content ranked highly in Google so you’re not invisible, and how to avoid doing things Google hates and will penalize you for.

That bonus isn’t available from me anywhere else. Later in the year I’ll sell it for $37.

Tomorrow at midnight two horrifying things happen: my bonus disappears, and the price of Review Wizard goes up.

What to do now:

(1) Grab Review Wizard:

(2) There is no step 2.


The Ugly Results of Trying to Trick Google

February 16th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

Trust me: you don’t want to be, um, disappeared.

The more highly your website’s content ranks in Google search results, the more people will find you through Google searches. That’s free traffic to your site — and who doesn’t want as much of that as possible?

“Search Engine Optimization” (SEO) may sound boring, but it’s pretty darn important: it’s what you can do to make sure your web content ranks as highly as possible in Google searches.

Now there are some website practices Google likes, and some it doesn’t like (and therefore penalizes). Do you know what they are?

SmallAnd there are some tricks that SEO gurus used to recommend that can now get you “disappeared” by Google. Do you know what they are?

This and more is covered in our new SEO Mastery eBook and video series. We’ll be selling this combo for $37 later this year.

Until tomorrow night, I’m giving it away as a free bonus to anyone who grabs Review Wizard through the link below. (Just copy and paste your receipt into my contact page.)

Review Wizard is the creation of the two undisputed masters of review websites, Mike Thomas and Brett Rutecky.

Every day they post about a product, sometimes make a simple video, and earn commissions on sales.

They each earn $20,000 – $30,000 per month doing this.

I know Mike’s story better than I do Brett’s, and I can tell you: Mike started from nothing. No knowledge, no websites, no email list, no contacts, nothing. But he was determined to make a go of this, so he just worked and worked.

The results speak for themselves.

Review Wizard is (1) the software Brett created to do this, plus (2) his training on how to use it and build a nice business with it.

It costs almost nothing, and I’m throwing in a $37 bonus to boot.

If only all of life’s decisions could be so easy:

Experts Keep Being Wrong — Except These Guys

February 15th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

Hard to know whether to trust the “experts” sometimes.

We’re now learning that a major paper that influenced the Paris climate deal was full of misleading information.

I just read that second-hand smoke isn’t nearly as dangerous as the experts said it was.

And don’t even get me started on bacon and eggs.

I know two experts, on the other hand, who are entirely reliable. They use their expertise every single day, and it translates into dough.

They have a simple business model: (1) review a product; (2) interview the creator (much easier than you think); (3) earn commissions on sales.

In other words: not brain surgery.

Earnings from this: $20,000-$30,000 per month.

They’ve packaged everything they do into an inexpensive goodie box called Review Wizard.

Review Wizard is two things: (1) a WordPress plugin that transforms your site into a beautiful product-review site, and (2) video training on how to use it and make it into a business.

Since I’m in the know, I can tell you: they’re having an early-bird special on it, just until 2:00pm Eastern Time today.

And you get 14 days to try it out. If it’s not for you, no harm done.

But what if it is?

You’ll have to take action and find out:

P.S. For the record: not a fan of the video.


Copy This Guy

February 14th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

I like to spy on people.

Well, let’s just say I like to keep an eye on other affiliate marketers. I like to see what they’re doing and how they’re doing it.

So I follow a guy named Mike Thomas, better known in the marketing world as Mike from Maine.

These days Mike no longer lives in Maine; he lives in Turkey, not far from libertarian philosopher Hans Hoppe.

Every single weekday he does exactly the same thing: he interviews a product creator on YouTube, and he promotes that product on his website. He earns a commission on sales.

That’s it. That’s his entire formula.

Monthly earnings from doing this: $20,000 – $30,000.

(He earns more during months when he himself creates a product. I’m just counting what he earns with these simple promotions of other people’s products.)

His videos don’t get that many views — sometimes just 150-300. But they’re views from buyers, so they add up.

Everything he does is totally above board and not difficult to duplicate.

In fact, I bought one of Mike’s products a couple years ago, and someone asked him: why are you telling us your whole method?

His answer was brutally honest: because I know almost none of you will actually use it.

Sad but true.

He and his partner Brett Rutecky — who has an excellent reputation in the industry — are running an over-the-shoulder training tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 9:00am Eastern Time where they’ll show you how it’s done.

What Mike does is not difficult. Anyone reading this can do what he’s doing.

Reserve your seat, and see for yourself:

Why My Kids Won’t Be Poor

February 13th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

It’s depressing.

Libertarians will defend prostitution, blackmailers, and slumlords, but most of them can’t find a kind word for advertisers or marketers.

Oh, they’re all for capitalism — except the actual stuff that makes it possible.

One of the great things about the Ron Paul homeschool curriculum is that among other things, it teaches students how to write effective advertising and sales copy.

Anyone who knows how to do that will never be poor. Period.

You’d better believe my five girls will know this stuff.

And they’ll know everything I’ve learned about how to support yourself online.

Our ancestors would have killed for the resources and possibilities we have. I am shocked at how few people take advantage of them. My kids will.

Bob Bly teaches you what to do to go from zero to earning a comfortable living entirely online. I remind you: many, many people far less intelligent than you are already doing this. (I know some of them.)

Bob knows everything there is to know about this stuff, including how to sell things — which is why I hired him to write my own sales copy.

Midnight tonight is the deadline. Until then, I’m offering a free bonus — a 20-video series on how to drive traffic to your website — when you get Bob Bly’s audio course. After midnight, that bonus, which I’ll be selling later this year for $27, is no more. Just copy and paste your receipt into my contact page, and the bonus is yours.

Hop off the fence while you still can:

The One Unbreakable Rule That Explains Everything

February 12th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

I don’t understand it myself.

But it’s all over every aspect of human life: the 80/20 rule.

Economist Vilfredo Pareto noted in 1906 that 80% of Italian land was owned by 20% of Italians.

He then began to see this 80/20 relationship in numerous other areas of life.

Meanwhile, people began finding it at work in the business world. For example:

  • 20% of your customers amount to 80% of your sales;
  • 20% of your employees yield 80% of the results;
  • 20% of your products yield 80% of your sales;
  • 20% of your customers are responsible for 80% of your complaints;
  • and many other cases.

I think the same rule holds true online.

100% of people want extra income streams, and they see plenty of knuckle-draggers making a killing online.

They say, “If these knuckle-draggers can do it, why can’t I?”

Answer: because the knuckle-draggers are in the 20% of people who actually do something instead of sitting on the sidelines and sticking to their existing routines, as the other 80% will do.

The whole thing boils down to three basic steps. My friend Bob Bly — the mystery man I’ve been talking about this week — knows them like the back of his hand.

Not only is he a master of sales (which is why Bob is the ONLY PERSON I have EVER allowed to write in my name, for my own sales copy), but he also knows the whole online-earning thing cold.

He also has an excellent reputation in the industry, so you can be sure he’s no scammer.

(Plus, why would I let a scammer write my sales copy?)

He’ll show you how to get that feeling of financial uncertainty out of the pit of your stomach once and for all.

And if you don’t like his teaching, you’ve got 90 days to tell him to go jump in a lake. But you won’t.

The video is cringe-inducing and the copy is a bit hypey. Ignore that. Get to the substance, and you’ll see: this thing is going to help you, big time.

Be the 20%:

P.S. Tomorrow’s the last day to grab this and get my bonus: a 20-video series on how to draw traffic to your website or offer. After tomorrow, I’m pulling the bonus. Just copy and paste your receipt into my contact page and I’ll send it over to you.


How Many of These Five Weird Sales Questions Can You Answer?

February 12th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

How many of these can you answer?

(1) Which picture brings in the most sales on a page offering an information product: a photo of the author, the product, or a happy customer?

(2) Can you create an income stream from selling public domain books whose copyrights have expired?

(3) Let’s talk minimum acceptable mark-up on products you sell online. You sell a product for $50. Can you afford to buy it for $25?

(4) With so much information available for free online, why do people on the Internet spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year on information products? (And thank goodness they do, because that means you can create and sell some.)

(5) Are there certain colors whose use leads to more online sales?

My friend — the only person I have ever allowed to write in my name, for my sales copy — answers hundreds of questions like these.

And he guides you through how he’s built up such a successful online business. Here’s what to do, laid out in a straightforward way, without information overload.

Here:

The sales copy sounds hypey, which is not my style. And the video is awful.

But as with everything this guy does, the substance is top notch — and if those bullet points don’t arouse curiosity, nothing will.

Plus, forward me your receipt and I’ll send you my free 20-video series on how to drive traffic to your site. I’m not making that series available anywhere else right now except as this bonus. (I’m planning to sell it for $27 a few months from now.)

Copy and paste your receipt into my contact page, and she’s yours.

But 48 hours from now, that bonus disappears.

All Right, This Is As Easy as I Can Make It

February 9th, 2017   |   By Tom Woods

When I first discovered there was a science to selling things, I was immediately intrigued.

One of my good friends (and the godfather of two of our daughters), Roger McCaffrey, has been a direct-mail specialist for years. He wrote headlines that got you reading. He wrote letters that got you pulling out your wallet. He wrote that text on the envelope that got you opening it.

That amazed me. That was a skill I just didn’t have. I didn’t even know how to go about acquiring it.

One thing I am good at, though, is spotting it in others.

And there’s another guy I know who’s so good, I’ve let him write for me.

Note: I NEVER, EVER let ANYONE write for me. I am a control freak.

Why did I let this person write for me? Because he’s so good, he can sell sand in the desert. He’s forgotten more than I’ll ever learn about how to sell things. And I want to make sales.

So I went to the best — “America’s best copywriter,” said McGraw-Hill.

This person, though, is not only the master of sales. He’s also a master of product creation and a whole heck of a lot else.

Above all, I TRUST HIM. If he publishes something, it’s top quality. If he gives me advice, I know I should follow it. He’s both honest and competent — an all-too-rare combination in Internet marketing.

He’s also a self-made multimillionaire.

And he’s old school. Forget about mastering Pinterest, Instagram, and whatever else. These things come and go. This guy wants to keep the learning curve as short as possible. Just the tried-and-true basics are all you need.

I can think of about a dozen people I would genuinely trust to teach you how to make a living, or at least some extra income streams online.

This guy is in the #1 slot.

And now, all will be revealed:
