And He Will Show You How To Do the Same – Using The Simple 8 Steps He Relies On Day-In And Day-Out to Continue Achieving His Truly Enviable Success. James & Arlene Martell James Martell here. If you’re ready to say good-bye to lengthy commutes and demanding bosses and finally put your time and efforts to work for you and your family — to work from the comfort of your own home like I have been doing with my wife since 1999, after a friend showed me how to publish my first website — then I will teach you an 8-step process that I have developed and taught to many people — the same process I continue to use every single day. Working step-by-step, you will learn how to research, write and publish informative websites on almost any topic you can think of. There is no magic to my success on the Net. I’m simply in the right place at the right time — with the right knowledge and skill set — to take advantage of three converging trends: 1. High-Speed Internet Growth 2. More Companies Selling Online 3. Confidence In Online Shopping And so can YOU! Curious About Online Shopping? — You can read an interesting article about the awesome growth of online shopping here. If working at home on your computer in this fascinating new industry appeals to you, you might want to read about what a local newspaper published about my online success. But, keep in mind, there is WORK to do here — AND a skill set you’ll need to either possess or develop. The truth IS — this business is NOT for everybody — since a certain ease with computers is needed. (not a lot though — in fact I’m a carpenter by trade and certainly DON’T consider myself a “techie”) What you will need is basic software and Internet proficiency — plus a good command of English, since, at this time, most consumers are English speaking and you’ll be writing primarily for that market. This site has been organized to give you ALL the facts relevant to making a decision that is RIGHT for you. If, after careful consideration of this site, you invest my training, then I promise — you won’t be disappointed! In fact, I guarantee it.As a unique way to share some of my concepts on affiliate marketing before you make your decision — as well as introduce you to my family — I’ve also placed an 8-minute video presentation on this site, which includes sound clips from my twice monthly Affiliate Buzz audio newsletter, which now includes interviews with experts from the affiliate marketing industry. Arlene in Maui “Fantastic interview, James! I’ve been studying your site and training program to see if this is something I’d like to do now during retirement. Your questions and comments along with Linda’s expert explanations, tips and advice finally made Affiliate Marketing sparkling clear and sensible to me. Now I’m a believer! Steve Cypress, Texas USA” **Listen yourself to a “September 2006” interview and review listeners feedback from a recent show. I wish you all the best in whatever you decide. Warmly, Ask yourself this; Are you… …stuck in a job or profession that limits your income, frustrates or bores you, or do you just want to earn an honest living at home — in the safety and security of your familiar surroundings? Well — if you have access to a computer, along with some very basic software and Internet skills, then you may find the information presented here quite interesting and potentially very profitable. Amazing things are happening on the Internet as HUGE companies, such as Apple, American Express, Dell, Denver Broncos, DIRECTV, Discovery Channel, MasterCard, National Geographic, and Wal-Mart, and countless others have begun setting up distribution networks that employ the talents of webmasters and publishers (big and small, home-based or not) through exciting and lucrative Affiliate Programs. The following are two examples of a typical affiliate offering made by two high profile companies. Take a look. National Geographic; Wal-Mart. Not familiar with Affiliate Programs? Simply put, merchants offer affiliates commissions for sales activity generated by the affiliates’ websites. It’s a major new trend for companies who are looking to cash-in on the booming online shopping trend and also looking to reduce spending on traditional advertising. You see, these companies, some of the largest in the world, now recognize that a pay-for-performance model of advertising strongly impacts their bottom-line. In fact, the biggest players, both within the Fortune 500 arena and beyond, now count on affiliates to “get the word” out about their products, services or just the latest company developments. And as online shopping emerges as the consumer’s preferred method to make purchases, it becomes even more evident that a pay-for-performance model that utilizes the Internet is the way to go for businesses of every size and within every niche. The only qualifications are that the affiliate have their own domain name, a good website and bona-fide traffic. There are no fees or purchase requirements. The merchant provides a login area where you — the affiliate — go to select advertising materials they provide for you to place on your site. These advertising materials consist of buttons, banners and text links, which are embedded with your pay codes, so the merchant can track your performance and send you a check each month. Many offer direct deposit into your bank account. And, although this income is paid in U.S. funds, it will be sent to wherever you instruct the merchant to send it — and if you move, you can just go to the login area and change your personal information. And if you’ve never published a website — have NO fear — although there IS a learning curve — it is far easier than you think. Better yet, my training manual covers every detail and truly leaves no stone unturned, ensuring that anyone who can follow simple step-by-step instructions has the opportunity to succeed as an affiliate marketer. I am living proof! You should know upfront that my system, the one I continue to rely on and the same one my successful students continue to use every day — which is detailed in my downloadable training — has prompted speaking engagements for me at some of the industry’s most prestigious events, including Commission Junction University, Affiliate Summit and eComXpo where I have been invited to share my methods to sold-out crowds. Play Video Although filmed in the September 2004, this 8-minute clip will still give you an inspiring overview of an emerging new industry that allows anyone with basic computer skills and a net connection to work from the comfort of their home and achieve financial freedom.

What’s more, and as attendees at these events already know, I have used the same steps I share in my downloadable course curriculum to maintain success and longevity on the net since 1999. Now, given the amount of change and advancement we have all seen on the net over the last seven years, that’s a track record worthy of mentioning – and one you can bank on! And bank on my success is exactly what I did; purchasing the dream of my lifetime not long after my affiliate marketing business took off. James_Martell/138_3874.jpg James Martell In His 1965 Shelby Cobra S/C(Click to enlarge) Take a look here at my dream come true — a 1965 Shelby Cobra S/C (See photos and videos) — a dream made a reality because I made the lucrative affiliate marketing business work for me, and you can, too. Now, the truth is that even my most stressful commute is made enjoyable with my Cobra. But, thankfully, commuting to work is a thing of the past for me. Are you ready to say good-bye to your stressful commutes — the ones that are robbing you of time to truly enjoy a fulfilling life and quality time with family and friends!No more stressful commutes! Vancouver At Dusk Being an affiliated publisher on the Internet is a very lucrative business that doesn’t take much of my time — now that I’ve developed a process. And it offers me the opportunity to spend more time at home, in a seaside suburb of Vancouver, Canada, with my wife Arlene and my four kids, Adam, Justin, Shelby and Victoria. And, for me, there is nothing more fun than taking the family on vacations! Audio: In fact, I took the whole gang to Disneyland in October, 2002. It was our first real vacation. Have a listen to the kids and I talking about it. And since then, we have been on many, many trips including an amazing 19-day dream holiday that began in Disney World Florida that ended with a 10-day cruise of the eastern Caribbean. Dad & The Kids With Minnie!It wasn’t long ago that our idea of a vacation was camping or a trip to grandma’s house. It was all we could afford. But things have changed. Now we can not only afford a longer stay, — but because publishing websites has none of the administrative headaches of a traditional business, — I’d venture to guess that not only will my income increase while I’m away, — but I won’t have a pile of problems to fix upon my return, — which would surely follow a month’s absence in a typical business. Bronwyn Bamber (*Recorded: July 15, 2006)Minnesota, USA …listen to what other students have to say! Those readers who run their own business or professional practice know exactly what I mean.

LISTEN HERE — as James talks about the phenomenal growth of online shopping — how he runs his business from home — and an overview of the 8-step process.Not Sure People Shop Online? To read what a prestigious financial newspaper said a few years ago about the recent boom in online retailing click here. And that growth trend has continued. In fact, online Christmas shopping for 2005 hit an all time high with 25 Billion in US sales — another 25% increase over the previous year. Additionally, the National Post, Canada’s prestigious national newspaper, says that consumers looking to avoid crowded shopping malls, pushy sales people and who opt to shop from the comfort of their own home, able to compare prices and products and then have the product they choose delivered right to their front door are providing online retailers — and affiliates like me — with unprecedented growth in revenue. The phenomenon this article describes — that of emerging consumer confidence in online shopping — is what drives my current financial success and it could do the same for you if you get started with my system — or revamp your current approach. (unless it’s already working, of course) So if you’re curious about what analysts are saying about Internet Marketing in the Financial pages of the National Post — a very prestigious Canadian newspaper (similar to the Wall Street Journal) — click here.The Secret To My Success Revealed Before outlining the steps I’ve used so successfully in some very competitive industries, I want you to do something that no other Internet expert would dare have you do. And that’s to prove that my techniques, strategies and procedures actually work in the real world! I’ll prove to you that my sites get highly-ranked at the search engines by letting you do a Google search on some popular, highly competitive, industry specific keywords. Of course, you realize that without such high rankings at the major search engines, — and the resulting visibility, — my traffic would be low. But, my rankings ARE high! And, yours will be too, if you purchase my downloadable training manual and follow the 8-steps I outline in precise detail.So, let Me Prove It To You! Just go to www.google.com, the world’s largest search engine, and do a search for some of the common search phrases listed below: (keep spelling intact) – earn extra income – earn extra income online – earn extra income at home – earn extra income on internet – earn extra income on computer – earn extra income with affiliate programs Does my site show up in the top 10? www.work-at-home-net-guides.com – work at home – work at home online – work at home business – work at home on internet – work at home on computer – work at home based business – work at home with affiliate programs Does my site show up in the top 10? www.work-at-home-net-guides.com – make extra money – make extra money online – make extra money on internet – make extra money on computer – make extra money with affiliate programs Does my site show up in the top 10? www.work-at-home-net-guides.com As you can see these high rankings are repeated for many keywords related to each of the above topics AND for many others. Please check this out. It’s important that you know with absolute certainty, — before you read further, — that I actually DO what I’m offering to train YOU to do. Otherwise, you’ll think of me as just one more of those ‘so-called’ Internet experts flogging their hyped-up course.And Five Years Later It’s Easier Than Ever Over the years since my training was first published in 2002 — and by the way I have released the “2006” THIRD EDITION of my training, which is now being offered here — and which boasts new engaging video tutorials, the step-by-step building of my own BBQ site, a new Index and nearly 400 expertly organized and easy to understand pages complete with engaging screenshots, new cover shots and more — the process of publishing high-traffic websites at the search engines is now more intuitive. What I mean by this is that me, and my students, are now able to increase the traffic or the number of visitors to our sites by focusing our efforts on publishing “topic sensitive” content. Whereas in the past, it was a little tricky to adjust to search engine anomalies. I now find my sites do extremely well with trimmed down keyword density rules. (all of this is explained in my training) And I am continually delighted to hear from students who are finding similar success.Four Experts Agree, — I Walk The Talk! And if you’re still not convinced that I actually succeed at this — and can offer you a blueprint that neatly organizes everything you need to know into an 8-step process — then read what four well, know, highly-respected Internet authors said after reviewing my comprehensive downloadable curriculum. Read what Michael Campbell, Phil Wiley, Andy Jenkins and Allan Gardyne had to say, then decide for yourself whether your investment is worth it. Download A FREE copy of the table of contents and the first 35-pages of the “2006” THIRD EDITION!A Proven Formula For Success Obviously, you will have to invest some time and money to learn the entire formula, — but, for those who are ‘just curious’ here are the basic concepts: * First, I research the Internet to determine which industries offer lucrative affiliate programs, then I search for keyword phrases — related to my chosen industry — search terms which were most frequently used in the previous 60-days at the search engines. These are the exact words that people type into search engines when surfing. Knowing these words and phrases — and their relative popularity — is essential to Internet success. The VAST majority of Internet publishers do not know how to effectively use this information or even where to find it. * Then, I structure the content of my site BASED on these keywords — As I organize the content of my site, I strategically place these important keywords within the body of my pages. I do this, so that when the search engines send out their ‘spiders’ — programs that regularly scour the Internet for URL’s that contain “matching” content, which they bring back to store in their databases, — my pages get a high score for relevancy. Learning how-to optimize your sites’ content for relevancy is a must. My methods for doing this properly — are worth many times the price of this manual! * Then, I submit to the search engines — Once the site is complete, I submit its URL to all of the search engines according to the protocols each require. This needs to be done right or your pages get badly outranked. It’s another thing missed by most webmasters and contributes to their low traffic. * Then, I choose which revenue generating links to place on my site — while I wait for my sites to be indexed. NOTE: The primary goal of my sites are to attract relevant traffic, which hopefully converts to a sale when a visitor clicks-thru to an offer. They then leave my site with my commission tracking codes embedded in their browser. From that point forward the merchant handles the transaction (if any) on my behalf and I get paid, usually a month or so later. It’s a wonderful business relationship. They handle all the customer fulfillment and I handle the referral. * And, recently I’ve begun organizing my internal links for maximum PageRank at Google (and Yahoo and MSN) — Search engine rankings are governed by algorithms that assign points for relevancy and importance. Recent changes in algorithms at Google, Yahoo, MSN and others assign mega points for link-popularity, — which seeks to establish how many other relevant sites have a ‘backwards link’ to yours and which pages of your site are the MOST important. All of this is covered in great detail in an audio report I published last year entitled Google Mastery. This 1 hr. and 20 min. audio is included FREE with your purchase of my downloadable training. “I’ve read a huge number of books, reports and articles on affiliate programs, so I wasn’t optimistic about finding new ideas in this book. I was very pleasantly surprised. James makes more than $20,000 a month — how MUCH more he won’t say — from affiliate commissions. In this handbook he tells you how he does it.” Allan Gardyne – International Expert On Affiliate Programs …read more testimonial here!Templates Offer A Professional Look The website below was developed by a student who attended a live training in Vancouver, B.C. — and he had never thought of himself as a “techie”. In the manual we refer you to a company that offers a low cost “site builder” that includes more than 1000 great looking, professionally designed templates. Templates allow you to focus on developing “content” and optimizing your pages for the search engines instead of fiddling with web design. Not only does this student have a professional look, but because of what he learned in my training he now has TRAFFIC! Here’s a Test: Try to guess what the primary keyword is for the above page? Read backwards for the answer: snoaL enilnO. A very popular keyword. Count how many times you see that tasty bit of ‘spider food’. (the topic of search engine spiders is thoroughly covered in the training) As you’ll note, it’s sprinkled repeatedly throughout the page… …for a very good reason. And that’s because spiders need to see the correct density — otherwise they assign your page low relevancy. And that’s a BAD thing! The trick to writing successful web pages is to satisfy both the spiders, — as well as your reader. I taught the above student my techniques in Vancouver and he was thrilled at what he learned for $997, as were the students who attended my recent BootCamps (see photos) held in October 2005 and June 2006 in my hometown of White Rock for $3400 (see testimonials). The fact is — some students of my methods have reported earnings in excess of $20,000 a month. Yet, you will learn the same methods I taught them in my downloadable training manual — but, all you pay is $167 U.S. In fact, “2006” purchasers get the refreshed THIRD EDITION that also includes a series of video tutorials with their purchase. NOTE: This course focuses on the exact steps I took as a complete novice to become HUGELY successful with affiliate programs by publishing relevant content. AND as a purchaser of my training you will be kept totally up-to-date of any changes in 2006 through a password protected UPDATES page. This makes my training ideal for entry-level people because I know from personal experience how overwhelming and confusing it can be at times. But even web-savvy types will get enormous value because I actually DO what I teach, — therefore I MUST stay up-to-date or perish.No Shortage of Merchants And my time-tested winning approach can be applied to thousands of different industries that offer affiliate programs.

See listener feedback… Plus, as a “book n’ buzz” COMBO purchaser, you will receive a new Coffee Talk interview each month. You will not be disappointed! Is Your Manual Still Current? In April of “2006”, I released the THIRD EDITION containing 21 “revisited” points, 7 “additional” points, and 13 new points – in other words, the full training from 2002, the additional information added in early 2005, and all the UPDATES from January 2005 to March 2006 have been fully integrated into a logically flowing document. But, that’s not all. The revisit prompted me to also include nearly 200 new screenshots and numerous video tutorials that, when combined with the nearly 400 pages of expertly organized information, ensures readers get a tight grasp of everything needed to join James in the arena of successful affiliate marketers. And throughout the year 2006, you as a purchaser, have a password that allows you to check back from time-to-time see if things are as they were. And if you have a “buzz” subscription — you’re guaranteed to always be “in the loop” because I talk for about a half an hour TWICE a month about “the business” we are all in.Some Even Ask Why I would Want To Take A Chance By Showing “The World” What I Do It’s A Good Point. But, I keep a close eye on my rankings — and could even take this training OFF the market if my affiliate revenue were to become jeopardized by teaching too many how to compete so successfully at the search engines. Actually, I am hoping that most students won’t jump into the same industries I’m in — but will instead explore the numerous OTHER industries available to them. I cover the topic of researching your topic quite thoroughly in the manual — so I’m hoping for massive diversification instead of overcrowding. Please understand that my proprietary know-how IS a limited resource which needs to be sheltered. And regrettably for some, — the most effective way to accomplish this is by letting market forces determine the price. Since my manual was first released in 2002 I have been fortunate to have had a steady flow of sales — but not a flood. And that suits me fine. But as the word spreads — and it IS — I reserve the option of putting the brakes on it! When I hear from students making anywhere from an extra $1000 a month all the way up to $20,000 and MORE — well, I would have no problem selling this system for $500 or TWICE that — because I’ve seen many of my students’ earning from $1000 – $5000 a month. SOME are doing MUCH better than that. Heck, I’ve even seen students knock me out of the top spots for some of my better keywords!! If fact, I was shocked one day to see that I’d been knocked OFF the first page at Google for a competitive keyword in a very lucrative industry. And I verified that every one of those sites occupying the first page at Google was a student of mine. So don’t delay longer than necessary to give this amazing industry SERIOUS thought!Walk This Way… Learning is easy when walking in the footsteps of an expert. My downloadable manual outlines the exact 8-steps you must take to build profitable websites as an affiliated publisher for major companies. I even break down these major 8-steps into ‘baby’ steps, — so that NOTHING gets missed. If ever you get lost, you simply retrace your steps. It’s that easy! No matter what stage you’re in with this whole business of affiliate marketing, my easy-to-understand training manual provides you with every piece of the puzzle to compete and win.Here’s a quick overview of the 8-step process you will learn when you get my training Step 1 – How to Get (and stay) OrganizedThis Step is bulging with information on organizing your online business, as well as a toolbox full of “instruments” that can be relied on to simplify many of the previously cumbersome, time-consuming tasks (like filling out countless online forms). I heard from many students who asked for more help here. Well, here it is – everything I use to save time, money and frustration, all in a single Step. Step 2 – Finding the Right Topic for YouFinding just the “right” topic seems to present quite a challenge to many of my students. Now, I make this once daunting task easy and fun, by providing the 6 most important factors to consider when choosing a topic for your site, as well short exercises that really “cement” the most important points, along with short video tutorial clips (which seem to better explain the areas that previously caused some frustration). You are introduced to Google in this Step and learn all about sponsored link programs. And, finally, we look at Yahoo’s Overture bid tool and complete this Step by choosing three possible topics for your websites, along with 3-5 relevant advertisers that have good affiliate programs. Step 3 – Keywords are the Building BlocksStep Three focuses on keywords and now includes new tutorials that ensure you understand the building blocks of keywords. I explain in elementary terms exactly how search engines (and their curious spiders) work and show how this information can be used to your advantage, and explain how you can leverage all of this for your own long-term success. Step 4 – Ladies and Gentlemen — Choose Your TemplateThe information I share in the Step on site building is truly revolutionary. In fact, we use this Step to actually start the construction of your websites, using online website publishing that makes this entire process a cinch! So, for those of you who had problems with FrontPage, or may be looking for a new alternative to FrontPage, I’ve got it for you in this Step – and share every detail about this new online website builder here. Also, we work together on a keyword-based domain name and, using screenshots, you’re walked through the registration of your very own website. Step 5 – Building Winning WebsitesIn Step Five, we get a behind-the-scenes look at website navigation, content development and page optimization. I share my new approach to site navigation and share secrets for building product pages that are sure to make money. Additionally, you learn the strategic reason for leaving merchants off of the article pages (yes, I said off) and actually work hand-in-hand with me to organize your own site. Additionally, video tutorials and screenshots show you how to build a site with valuable keyword content, optimize your pages and more. And remember, I build my own website right before your eyes! Step 6 – Add Keyword Focused ContentIn Step Six, I teach you exactly how to write high quality, valuable copy for your own websites and how to hire professional writers (on the cheap) via an online freelance site that I regularly use myself. I also provide my own rules for keywords and keyword variations. Better yet, I you how to use this information to write extraordinary content that will make you proud (and the competition jealous) – ON THEIR OWN! Step 7 – Affiliate Programs + AdSense = ProfitsIn Step Seven, I have added an exciting new tutorial on Google and Google AdSense and share new information on working with Google AdSense to increase your revenue. And, I share with you a secret code that will triple your income! Step 8 – Building Traffic from Multiple SourcesIn Step Eight, you earn how to increase traffic to your site, and are introduced to my own Google Mastery report (which is accessible for free to handbook readers). You also learn about my PAD technique, which few know about, and a website run by a friend of mine that submits websites to all the major search engines for you – no kidding! And, you learn all about inbound links and how to add these to your site, watching me to do this one on my own, thanks to nifty video tutorials. The above 8-steps are your roadmap to success. Follow them correctly and you WILL succeed, — or, you get your money back. Actually, I’ll refund your money immediately for ANY reason if you notify me within 60 days! I mean, this business may NOT be for you. Not everybody likes working in front of a computer. But I’ll take the risk and provide a prompt refund JUST FOR THE ASKING.

Rarely these days do I have time to read an entire e-book, especially one on search engines. I thought I knew it all…. until I read the “Affiliate Marketers Handbook” by James Martell.

First of all, let me just say that this training manual is NOT some ebook I wrote on a weekend — based on generalities — so I could cash-in on the trend of publishing for profit on the Net. I suppose, if you wanted a basic idea of affiliate marketing, that serves up… * Confusing terminology * No detailed, proven and reliable action steps * Gimmicky or illegal tactics that don’t work in the real world * Outdated information * Fluff …you COULD pay anywhere between $20-$50 and these publishers will be happy to sell you their ebook. And I’m sure these authors do quite well because many are looking for quick-and-easy online gimmicks rather than learning about a viable business strategy. So if you’re looking for practical advice, offered in a step-by-step process — that was formulated by someone who actually DOES what he teaches, — then, as can be expected, there is a bit more of an investment involved. In fact, people tell me all the time that this training has set a new standard for ebooks on the subject of affiliate marketing because it covers the nitty-gritty details — the essentials — that were previously overlooked by others. And I see daily evidence that my strategies work — not only in my OWN sites — but in student sites as well. I say that because I can spot my students sites a mile a way. And they are all over the top listings.Results Never Lie I am going to use the graph below to make a point about traffic, the same kind of traffic that you can expect when publishing websites using my 8-step process: As you can see there was a steady growth except for September 2001 (9/11) of new visitors to my very first satellite BizLearning site. That growth curve was the direct result of techniques I employed then — and teach today — to get traffic to my sites. These are the very same techniques I’ll teach you — that cannot be found ANYWHERE — at ANY price! It truly IS insider information — especially if you get a buzz subscription. Notice, I was up around 8,000 visitors per month in August. And this is only one site. That’s like having 8,000 people browse through my very own Satellite BizLearning store per month! Think about that. That’s MY store that had 266 visitors in ONE day — come in to shop for satellite BizLearning dishes! But, I had virtually no advertising expenses, no overhead to speak of, no cashiers, no leases, no inventory, no delivery headaches, no customer service issues, no merchant account, no taxes to collect, no money to count and deposit, no lighting bill, no hydro bill, no phone bill, — and no need to even open and lock the doors! Are you getting the power of this?And It’s Getting Better! The screenshot to the left is from my November, 2002 Commission Junction (CJ) activity report (I’ve learned to become discreet about income and do not anymore publicize my earnings, but I DO want to show you what’s possible). CJ acts as brokers between merchants and affiliates. You will notice my income for the month was $18,065 U.S. Actually I ended the month at CJ with a little under $20,000 US due to some delayed reporting. The graph below shows my CJ Publisher Commissions for a 12 month period. And these CJ merchants, at the time, represented only 40% of my total income. YOU do the math. And that’s U.S. money, which in Canada now sells for 1.15%! Gotta love it! DISCLAIMER: Any business endeavor involves risk. Individuals vary greatly in their abilities to succeed as an entrepreneur, whether Internet based or not. The above income claims are not intended to imply a fast and easy road to wealth, — but rather to show what’s possible based on my own example of success. Individual results may vary. CJU Convention: I attended CJ’s annual convention as a publisher in October 2002, September 2003, and then as a speaker in September, 2004 and again in October 2005. James Martell &Jeff Pullen — CEO Commission Junction! Video of the 2004 CJU event — where I was privileged to meet and mingle with more that 40 of my students is available here! CJU 2004 – An Event To Remember (8:31 sec) Windows Player: High-Speed | Low SpeedReal Player: High-Speed | Low SpeedI believe we are at a crossroads in economic history because of the Internet. I’ve read that e-commerce, in all of it’s various forms, will impact our lives more greatly than did the printing press, telephone, radio and BizLearning combined! And YOU are poised to be pioneers! Frankly, it’s almost like the Gold Rush of the last century, — where for very little money ANYONE could stake their claim and get rich! (or at least replace your current income) With my system, virtually OVERNIGHT, you can create your very own cyber-storefront on the Internet and start marketing to the entire world without the normal hassle and expense of a brick n’ mortar business. Thousands of affiliates programs already exist and the list of new industries is growing by leaps and bounds, as companies scramble to survive in a competitive global economy with pay-for-performance marketing systems such as Internet-based affiliate programs. By using the template service I recommend in my manual, you can quickly own a fully functioning, professional looking website, your own domain name, a “pro” site builder (so you can the edits yourself) — AND have it hosted for about $30 a month. How’s THAT for low overhead! I’ll also show you how to obtain web-tracking software, — for real-time statistical analysis of every meaningful activity on your site. (for you accountant types) Actually, although I’m no accountant, I love going online at midnight to check my traffic stats and commission reports for that day. This really IS a whole new way of doing business. By staking out your claim in this virtual world of affiliate marketing with a $15 domain name registration, — and my manual, — plus a little money for incidentals, you COULD begin the process of starting an enterprise that will outlive you and go down in history like many of the great merchandizing empires started in the last century! Hey, you never know. Macy’s department store revolutionized merchandizing when it opened ITS doors in 1857. There were no department stores before that. And, look how far THEY’VE come. (but, they too, now offer online shopping, as well as the brick n’ mortar option, at Macys.com) But, unlike Macy’s, — when THEY got started, — you do not have to invest in costly “prime” real estate in order to attract enough traffic to turn a profit. You simply opened your storefronts, — in “cyberspace”, where know-how is more important than location. You see, the Internet is more popular than ever as people are ‘cocooning’ in droves for a variety of reasons. And, in recent years, online shopping has become an accepted way to purchase goods and services. If you’re like me, you probably see reports of this in the media almost daily. So, whether you want to represent satellite BizLearning, lingerie, office supplies or baby clothes, (or whatever) — you really DO have the potential to open a small storefront on the Internet and do very well for yourself. All you need is a little help to get started.And, that’s why it makes sense to learn from an expert. With such AWESOME potential to cash-in on this lucrative industry and start earning money in a relatively short period of time (usually 6-10 weeks, you’ll naturally have to agree that $167 U.S. is… …a small sum to pay when compared to your potential earning power! Best of all, you can… Download RIGHT NOW Under The Protection of My Zero-Risk, — 100% 60-Day Money-Back-Guarantee and begin your tutorial TODAY! That’s right! In fact, I absolutely INSIST that you ask for a complete refund, if for any reason you don’t think it’s for you. So, download my EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND, 100% GUARANTEED training manual RIGHT NOW, and begin the process of succeeding in the prestigious world of affiliate marketing and publishing. And, if for any reason you’re not satisfied, — then you get your money back, — AND FAST — with absolutely NO processing fee. However, if you are like many of my students, you’ll amaze yourself at how quickly you’ll master my concepts and begin making money at home — on your computer.Some ask, “how much can I earn”? Whenever I launch a new site I set a goal of having it bring in $500 US – $1000 U.S. per month within six months. (1-2 months to organize and build, 3-4 months for search engine rankings to mature) This is very realistic if you are diligent at following my processes exactly. And of course, you, like me, are NOT limited to a single site. So your income can grow based on how many sites you choose to build.PS — before you order though, — I have a few words of caution. You’ll need patience, the right business tools and a primary source of income to properly establish your business. This is only reasonable. So if, as you read this letter, your financial situation is very stressed, — then maybe this opportunity is NOT right for you at this time. Here is a list of basic tools you will need: * Computer * Windows 98 (and up) * Printer * Office Supplies Estimated Upfront And Monthly CostsMy Training Manual $167Affiliate Buzz Subscription $10 per month (highly recommended)Site Builder/ Template/ Hosting $30 per month (awesome bargain)Domain Registration $15 per year.Local Internet Access $10-40/mo. (varies from region to region)Incidentals $150-200 (over-time for tools and services)Working At Home Can Be Great! Many of my students have absolutely fallen in love with working at home — on the Internet — and having total control of their finances through being Affiliated Publishers for some GREAT companies — as you can see from reading a few of the many testimonials I have received. And why wouldn’t they? Getting out of the rat race has never been easier for those with a computer and access to the Internet. Plus, because you are an independent contractor, you get to set your own schedule, have lucrative tax advantages (read Rich Dad, Poor Dad) and can avoid stressful commutes. If you want to meet a friend for lunch and stay until 3pm, then it’s your call. You can work in your bathrobe with the dogs, cats and kids underfoot or build yourself a private office in a spare room. If you prefer living in another part of the country (or world) then do so. Your business can be run from anywhere you have an Internet connection. And, it’ll be fun and exciting to show family and friends your new website, — because there is a great deal of prestige associated with owning a profitable, attractive website. James isn’t one of the so-called “guru’s” with a huge mailing list. He’s just an ordinary man who has discovered how easy it is to stay home and make a living online. It’s very up-to-date. His techniques are working NOW.

This is not a ploy or a threat. It’s simply good business sense. You see, — this price of $167 U.S. is just a guess at what should be my optimum price. The fact is — some students of my methods have reported earnings in excess of $20,000 a month. So as the word gets out — and sales increase — I’ll be in a better position to gauge whether I should slow sales down if necessary with a price increase — probably adding $130 and raising it to $297. (still a very, very good price) You see, my training is not like a widget where I want to price it as low as possible to maximize sales. It is a proven system for getting awesome rankings at the search engines. Of course I want to sell more training manuals, — but NOT at the expense of enormous competition from students. So I need to be cautious and control access to these valuable strategies which relatively few people and companies know about. And TRUST me, you are not likely to find my approach in cheap ebooks or online forums because the SYSTEM I developed — and keep up-to-date — is based on the periodic analysis of nearly 30,000 pages of content throughout 90 different websites! I’m actually watching a steady flow of sales right now — not a lot — but as I reach a certain point I’ll put the price up to $297 which will, regrettably, put it out of reach for many who are unwilling — or unable — to make that kind of investment. And trust me, I’ve been there. I remember all too well the frustration of not having the things I wanted for myself and my family. And there were times when I, too, wouldn’t have been able to come up with an investment of $200 to $300 even for such a solid opportunity as this. But the fact is this manual took six gruelling months to assemble at a hard cost of over $10,000 because I hired an editor who agreed to let me train him one-on-one — while I condensed EVERYTHING I knew into a format that was comprehensible to anyone — newbie OR pro. And most recently, this THIRD EDITION to myself and a part-time editor another 3 months to thoroughly “refresh” the manual from cover to cover. And it was quite a task. It is my belief that the reason so many say they’ve NEVER seen such a thorough treatment of Affiliate Marketing before is because I invested the time and the resources to do it right. What I thought would be a two month project actually took six — because I was determined to get it right so my readers would have a realistic shot at the success I was having — and not have to go through the confusion and uncertainty I experienced when I got started. My manual contains over 40,000 words, — nearly 200 graphics — and 389 pages of precise instruction. And the actual knowledge that you will gain took me approximately 18-months of mind-numbing trial and error. Meaning I made all the mistakes that YOU won’t have to. And it works if you apply it! Trust me, it really does. Many are proving it every day. I couldn’t even imagine where I’d be today if I had such a training from day one — like YOU could have. And all you have to invest — for the time being — is a ONE TIME fee of $167 U.S. Plus if you take out a “buzz” subscription you’ll get my FREE AUDIO REPORT #1 – Hiring Authors which reveals exactly how to accelerate your business by leveraging the talents of professional writers. And let’s be honest — if you could learn the skills needed to compete on the Net and bring in $1000 – $3000 – $10,000 a month — or more depending on your ambition — wouldn’t you agree that $167 U.S. is well worth the price — especially since you’ve got 60 days to “test drive” it backed by a prompt 100% money back guarantee — with no questions asked — or processing fee? And I couldn’t make that kind of refund claim on the Net these days unless I was fully prepared to back it up. So why not avoid paying potential price increases by ordering today and at least test drive my system. And be sure to get the “book n’ buzz” combo — as insurance. You WON’T be disappointed!! In any case, –whether this is for you, or not, — I very much appreciate that you took the time to consider my offer. And I wish you all the best in whatever you decide. Warmly, PS — FREE DOWNLOAD! Truly, this manual could be the “key” you’ve been looking for. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved on the Net. I’d be sorry if you didn’t at least “take a peek” at the table of contents, — as you would in a bookstore. So I’d like you to download my extremely informative and thorough table of contents, — actually the first 35 pages, — absolutely free, — with NO STRINGS ATTACHED WHATSOEVER.
