A couple of days ago I stumbled across an excellent training resource for those who are wanting to get started in Internet Marketing. I’ve been working with the creator and have ironed out a pretty amazing discount for my readers.
More on that in a bit.
First, this training is a video-based course that teaches a complete system for Internet Marketing using nothing but free resources. Many “serious” IM’ers would scoff at such a system saying that you have to spend money to make money. However, in my opinion, for those who are just getting started or for those who haven’t been able to make any profit yet, such a system is a real blessing.
This course consists of 30 videos covering every single step of this system in exacting detail. I’ve watched several of the videos, and I’m very impressed with the step-by-step detail of the training. Often video training can be full of fluff just to add to the perceived value. That’s not the case with this course at all. Every single video includes actionable steps that will help you build a business. Below is a sample so you can see the level of detail these videos go into:
This isn’t the only system that advocates the use of free resources. Two other notable and popular courses are Travis Sago’s Bum Marketing and the Thirty Day Challenge. Both are great for what they teach. Quite honestly however, this course takes the best of both of these methods and adds quite a bit more detail to them. In this course all of the blanks are filled in – this isn’t a course that’s being used to sell or push a higher-end product.
It’s not for everyone.
If you’re already making sales (even as few as 1-2 per week), I’d recommend focusing on testing and tracking so that you can ramp up what’s already working for you. If you’re here, you need focus, not another system to try.
On the other hand, if you aren’t making regular sales yet and would really like to get started in affiliate marketing, this course will help build a very solid foundation.
I mentioned a discount.
He sells this 30-part video course for $97. In my opinion, he’s under pricing it at $97 (and I’ve told him so). It’s worth every dime and more for those who need the instruction. However, if you enter the coupon code backlinkage in the small box just under the order button, you’ll be able to grab this course for only $37. There are many (MANY) ebook-based “courses” on basic Internet Marketing for that price if not higher that don’t even cover the material in two or three of these videos.
His sales page isn’t the best I’ve ever seen. However, if you take a look at the list of videos, you’ll get a great feel for exactly what is covered in this course. Each of those topics is covered in depth.
It’s not often that I wholeheartedly recommend a product to the extent that I’m recommending this video course, but if you’re wanting to start making money online and need a boost, you owe it to yourself to take a look.

Autoblogging is one of the two “Holy Grails” of Internet Marketing (the other being automatic article spinning). The idea behind autoblogging is that you spend time setting up the “system,” but from then on it’s pretty much hands-off.
Some opponents to this concept say that it dilutes the value of the web – these sites are often termed “splogs” which is short for spam-blogs. Proponents say that these sites provide one more way for readers to find the information that they need to help them solve problems.
Regardless, unlike standard niche sites where unique content is added over time (coupled with a link-building campaign) in an attempt to build traffic over time, autoblogs rely on a steady trickle of traffic. Even if one of these sites only brings in $10 per month, if they can be set up in an hour or two, over time a stable of these sites could provide a nice supplemental income. Alternatively, once they’ve been running for a period of time, these sites could be flipped for a decent profit.
Over the next several days/weeks, I’m going to explore one or more methods for autoblogging and document my efforts. I intend on providing enough detail that anyone who’s following can easily duplicate my successes while avoiding my mistakes.
I know that this is a hot-button topic and that some are very opposed to the idea while others are hungry for a viable method for implementing this. Let me know your thoughts below and I’ll be sure to include those discussions in the case study.
