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:

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:
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 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.
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.
Get those questions answered:

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:
P.S. Forgive him the cheeseball video. Just read.

I am a good objection smasher.
Here’s one you may secretly have:
“Woods, I get why I want to create my own product, and I get why digital products are so great: they cost nothing to duplicate, they can be delivered automatically, they involve no physical inventory — I get it.”
“But I’m not an expert. So how can I teach anyone anything?”
Here’s the secret.
You don’t have to be the world’s foremost expert on whatever your subject is.
You just need to know more than your reader does.
Example: you probably think you’re an average Internet user.
But suppose you’re introducing the Internet to someone who’s never used it. To that person you’re an astonishing whiz, clicking and navigating like a pro.
You know how to look things up, check the weather, read the news, post a video on social media, read email, send someone a document — and on and on.
To you, this seems like no big deal. But see why a genuine beginner would consider you a wizard?
So that objection won’t work. Plenty of people far less intelligent than you have built up nice side income streams, and sometimes even entire occupations, generating digital products.
This presentation, available for a couple more days, shows you how it’s done.
The guy presenting it has sold $100,000,000 in digital products. I think he’s worth learning from.
