The last 3 events I have been to I have been asked the same questions. How did you get started in Internet Marketing, what books or courses did you read or do ?? I then usually get into a long conversation about my education and my complete ebook history. So today I would like to share this with you. I have to admit I have not bought a huge amount of ebooks but the ones listed below are the ones that made a big impact in my business. 1.The Adwords Black Book & Adwords Black Book DVD's This was my entry into affiliate marketing, this is an intermediate course, so I really dived in at the deep end. One month after reading this book and watching the DVD workshop I was making $4500 per month !!! This is still the best affiliate training product I have ever seen !!! The book is not sold any more , however the author, John Barker has recently released a new book , The Affiliate Blackbook. His back end product is the Adwords Black Book DVD's. Highly recommended if you are deadly serious about your business !! http://sarahstaar.com/R/Affiliate-black-book.php 2.Affiliate project X This book was an excellent follow up to the Black Book. Some inspiring stuff , it gave me a good understanding of Adwords and review sites. http://www.nxurl.us/projectx.php 3.Beating Adwords This book is an excellent guide to adwords, it taught me all I know about adwords. http://www.nxurl.us/beatingadwords.php 4.The Rich Jerk I got a couple of good tips about offering bonuses and rebates. This book is now only $10 so well worth a look. http://www.nxurl.us/richjerk.php 5.Confessions of a Lazy Supper Affiliate This is possibly one of the best ebooks about review sites, same author as The Conduit Method http://www.nxurl.us/lazymrketr.php 6.The Conduit Method I have talked about the conduit method before, it is still one of my favorite ways to make money from very simple web sites. http://sarahstaar.com/R/Conduit-Method.php see a video showing one of my Conduit sites http://www.nxurl.us/Conduit-Method.php 7.Membership site tactics This is a video course that has completely changed the way I do business. The course shows the power of building membership sites. It also shows you all the different options that are open to you when building a membership site. http://paidworkfromhome.us/recommends/Membership-Site-In-6-Minutes.php 8.Newsletter Success formula Martin has now just released a full training course that shows you everything you need to know about making an income from list building and writing newsletters. The course comprises of 10 detailed videos explaining exactly how to build your list and how to write your newsletters. I've watched the videos several times now and still seem to learn things every time I watch them. I would highly recommend them if you would like to make a long-term income the easy way !! I have to say that out of all the different Internet marketing projects I have undertaken newsletters is by far the easiest - and that's coming from somebody who is dyslexic !!

I could do a list of the turkeys I have bought, but I will spare you that well maybe until next time !
It wasn't long ago that I went to my first Internet marketing meeting. It was the "London Lunch" organised by Martin Avis. Over lunch I got talking to a couple of guys by the name of Chris Freville and Phil Wiley, both of whom are very successful Internet marketers who you may have heard of. I told them what I was doing with my review sites and my success with ad words and they both told me that I should be building an e-mail list, and if I wasn't I was "leaving a lot of money on the table". Phil told me that his record is (US$63,000) commissions in one day from one email !. I then got talking to Martin and he told me that his record is $6,000 in 24 hours from one email. It got me thinking, am I missing out on something here? Building a list is something that Internet marketers recommend in many of the books and videos I have collected over the last few months, but I'd always thought building a list as being too difficult, and then I had absolutely no idea what I would write to my list about, especially since I'm dyslexic. I went away from the "London Lunch" (is there a New York Lunch ?) with the clear idea that I was going to build a list, but still a little unclear about what I was going to do with my list. My plan was to create a give-away product but make it as good as possible - with a really good e-cover and very good content so it is good value and not just a nothing give-away product or report. Well I created three video courses and gave them away for free in the Warrior Forum, as well as other places on the Internet. It wasn't long before I had a list of 600 people. But I still didn't know what to do with my list. I bumped into Martin again at Frank Garon's workshop in July and saw him presenting on stage where he was showcasing his latest product - a newsletter pack which contained templates for creating newsletters. All you had to do was insert your own message at the top of the Newsletter and the rest was already written for you. http://www.nxurl.us/News-Letter-Success-Formula.php I purchased Martin's package of newsletter templates and Martin gave me some tips on how I should write my newsletters plus advice on speeding up my list building. I started sending out my newsletters weekly and quickly started to get sales each time I sent an e-mail out. (Thank you to all of you who have purchased anything from me !)
