    Product Review: Derek Gehl's latest video training series
    "The Internet Millionaire's Protege Bootcamp Videos"

    Let's face it...

    ... Not everyone can afford to drop $2,000 to $5,000 to fly half-way across the country to attend a 'live' Internet marketing bootcamp.

    That's why I was happy to see world-renowned Internet marketing expert Derek Gehl release his very latest seminar in a massive package of 6 DVDs with accompanying 147-page workbook.

    Here's a picture of everything you get:

    ... It's huge, right?

    Of course, it's NOT just pretty packaging!

    In this presentation, Derek tells you exactly how he worked with his mentor, Corey Rudl, to transform a $25 investment into over $60,000,000 in online sales!

    If you've never had the privilege of seeing Derek speak 'live' before, you should know that this guy believes in packing TONS of his latest moneymaking secrets into his weekend bootcamps...

    (Very unusual given that most seminar presentators will only give you a TASTE of what they know, and then spend the rest of their stage time peddling their wares!)

    ... There's no fluff, and Derek is a VERY dynamic speaker which makes him easy to listen to -- and actually pretty hilarious at times!

    So in this 6 DVD package, you'll get over 7 hours of video footage where you'll discover...

    >> How to start an Internet business in as little as 48 hours -- and be generating profits by the following weekend!
    >> PLUS, how to grow an EXISTING Internet business by driving 1,000s of buyers to your website using Derek's FREE and dirt-cheap traffic strategies... plus how to convert these visitors into $1,000s in NEW sales instantly!
    >> The #1 research tool for finding NEW lucrative business ideas that absolutely NO Internet business owner can afford to be without... and how to access it for FREE!
    >> Secret strategies for establishing lucrative partnerships, where you do the "selling" and collect 35% to 55% of the profits while your partner looks after actually "fulfilling" the orders.
    >> How to start a web site for less than $100! If you're just getting started, you probably don't have a big budget. So I'll show you how to start using cheap and FREE resources, then how to "upgrade" when the sales start rolling in!
    >> How to develop a brand-new product (for FREE!) in less than 2 weeks.
    >> How to rank at the top of the search engines and directories (like Google, Yahoo, AltaVista, ODP, AllTheWeb, Ask, and more!)

    ... Plus tons more, so you can watch the video highlights of Derek's ENTIRE two-day seminar -- right from the comfort of your own home!

    Remember: The strategies that Derek shares on these DVDs have already been successfully used by thousands of REAL PEOPLE to grow profitable Internet businesses that are generating incomes of $100,000... $250,000... $500,000 per year (and more!).

    So it's not unreasonable for you to expect that, if you watch the DVDs and follow the instructions that Derek provide, you can enjoy similar great results!

    I give Derek's brand-new "Internet Millionaire's Protege Bootcamp Videos" my very highest recommendation. This is a massive package, packed with over 7 hours of wealth-building strategies and resources that you'd otherwise be forced to pay $1,000s to get by attending one of Derek's few annual seminars.

    "Is this email marketing software all hype?

    Or, does Mailloop REALLY have the potential to
    help you grow a six-figure income Internet business?"

    Product Review of "Mailloop: email and Business Automation Software"

    Are you drowning in a sea of email chores...? Sure, email is now considered to be one of the top 3 essential Internet marketing strategies:

    >> A single email campaign can be worth $1,000s (if not TENS of $1,000s) in sales -- in less than 24 hours.
    >> And unlike like offline advertising, there are NO printing, envelope, or postage costs to take a bite out of your profits -- email is FREE to send.

    ... The PROBLEM is, unless you automate your email chores early in your business lifecycle, what you're *saving* on postage and printing costs COULD be eaten up by 100s of wasted hours.

    It's not really FREE to send an email campaign if it takes you 3 days to actually get it out the door!

    Fortunately, today there are software and services available that take the grunt work out of sending email campaigns, newsletters, and autoresponders...

    ... Leaving you free to worry about the fun stuff, like crafting high-impact email campaigns... or automating your backend sales with series of autoresponders!

    A favorite on my list of tools is Derek Gehl's (of Internet Marketing Center fame) Mailloop -- email and Business Automation Software.

    Are people REALLY increasing profits
    with Mailloop? Or, is it all hype?

    Personally, I've always been comfortable using and recommending Mailloop to my friends and business associates because it has a proven track-record.

    The software has been around (and evolving through updates) since 1998... and was originally built by Derek's team to manage their own email marketing campaigns, which now...

    Generate over $3.5 Million is sales per year!!!!!!

    Of course, if you're just getting started, software that manages email campaigns worth MILLIONS of dollars per year might seem a bit out of your league.

    So I think it's important to note that Mailloop also has a long, proven track-record of helping "Regular Joe's" who have started small (with NO opt-in list or experience sending email) grow to a six-figure income -- and beyond!

    (If you visit Derek Gehl's website, you can read actual case studies of these real people, and see proof of their RESULTS! Click here now.)

    Sure it's more affordable... but are you
    giving up features and control?

    If you're price conscious like me, you'll also appreciate the value-for-the-dollar Mailloop gives you.

    Mailloop has been designed to give small and home-based business owners ALL the email automation tools you need, in one easy-to-use software interface...

    So while many of the email management services used by the Fortune 500s will "two-bit" you to death with extra charges that can run into the $1,000s per year, with Mailloop you get everything you need to...

    • Easily collect email addresses from an opt-in form on your website
    • Subscribe and unsubscribe people from your list automatically
    • Import existing lists of opt-in customers and subscribers
    • Send professional-looking email campaigns -- in text and HTML
    • Manage MULTIPLE newsletters from one interface
    • Automate your customer service with autoresponders
    • Send automated "follow-up" emails with unlimited autoresponders

    ... Plus tons more, all for one very reasonable, low one-time payment -- and NO EXTRA charges, ever!

    What about support? Will you be crying
    by your computer at 2 a.m.?

    Here's where I really give Derek and his team some serious praise.

    Until a couple of years ago, support for the Mailloop software was limited to some videos and a help manual. Yes, there were a few staff dedicated to supporting customers, but I generally get the impression they were spread too thin.

    In the last couple of years, though, Derek and IMC have really beefed up their technical support... I take it this has happened in response to customer demand.

    So now, not only has Mailloop been streamlined with these GREAT wizards that walk you step by step through all the critical tasks like sending your first email, setting up your first autoresponder, etc...

    ... Mailloop ALSO now comes with a complete suite of video tutorials, a customer support center, and personal support on-demand from a very knowledgeable, and VERY available, team of Internet marketing experts.

    So getting set up with Mailloop and sending your first email campaign is a breeze...

    The final verdict... Is Mailloop a diamond or a dud?

    Overall, I give Mailloop my highest recommendation.

    Not only do you get the entire suite of email management tools for a low, one-time payment -- a value of literally $1,000s per year...

    ... You also get unlimited support from IMC's experienced staff... something other service providers are charging $100+ per hour for!

    And with Mailloop's track-record of helping regular people boost their incomes over six-figures per year, you can be confident that you're using a software that's already PROVEN to get results!

    To get started with Mailloop, OR learn the strategies Derek Gehl used to make over $3.5 Million last year alone with email marketing, visit:Mailloop

    I give Mailloop my HIGHEST recommendation!

    SOFTWARE REVIEW: While Mailloop is boosting your e-mail marketing promotions, you'll want to pay attention to this!

    Review: Desktop Marketer Pro

    Every time someone sends me an e-mail telling me that they've just discovered the "next big thing" in online marketing, I'm naturally a little bit skeptical.

    So when I received an e-mail from world-renowned Internet marketing expert Derek Gehl recently telling me that he had a "revolutionary" new product he wanted to show me, I wasn't sure what to expect!

    It turns out that Derek was talking about "direct-to-desktop" technology. Now, for those of you who haven't heard of this before, it basically allows you to send messages directly to the desktops of your customers or subscribers WITHOUT using e-mail. When you have a message you want to send, it will "pop up" right on the desktops of their computers, instead of landing in their e-mail inboxes.

    I've actually heard of this technology before, but the software necessary to get started cost a fortune (at least $10,000), and you needed a team of programmers to implement it on your site. So when I decided to take Derek up on his "90-Day Risk Free Trial," I was a little nervous that the set-up process would be too complicated for me. (I am the farthest thing from a "technical whiz" you will ever meet!)

    I can honestly say I was amazed at how "dummy-proof" this software is to use! I was up and running in no time, and everything worked perfectly the first time around! And convincing my subscribers to download the little "Desktop Reader" was actually really easy. (Derek is giving away a couple of free reports with the software that explain a TON of great ways to get people using the application.)

    Once you start using "Desktop Marketer Pro" for your business, you can simply forget about some of your biggest e-mail marketing headaches! You'll never again need to worry about:

    • People changing their e-mail addresses without telling you.
    • Your legitimate messages getting wrongfully flagged as spam.
    • Free accounts (like Yahoo! and Hotmail) "bouncing back" your messages.
    • Blocked mail and blacklists.
    • Your message disappearing under a mountain of junk e-mail and spam.

    The bottom line is that this product does everything it promises -- and a whole lot more! You can track exactly WHO is reading your messages so you never have to guess if your e-mail is being delivered. I give "Desktop Marketer Pro" a 10 out of 10 rating -- my absolute highest recommendation!

    Learn to Write From Your Passion
    by Debbie Ducker

    It is a well known fact that writing articles is a very powerful tool towards the success of your on line business.

    I don't know if that is a good basis to start writing them though. I feel that you should write an article from your passion for the topic you have chosen for it.

    Let your passion for that topic flow and you will be surprised at how easy the article gets written.

    You don't have to be extremely well trained in writing skills. Basic skills with the ability to check your spelling and grammar will suffice. Which you definitely will want to do before publishing any article.

    What is important here is being able to put in words what you know and are passionate about. And passing that on to the reader so that it enables them to take this knowledge and use it to accomplish their own goals of succeeding on line.

    Let's go over a few simple steps you can take to get an article written about a topic you have a passion for and that you know something about.

    Step 1 - Of course, will be deciding what that topic is. Everyone knows something they can pass on to others. Think what that is for you. What are you really good at? What do you really love to do?

    Step 2 - Begin by making notes either mentally or preferably in a note pad document on what you already know about the topic.

    Step 3 - Use those notes to decide if what you know should be one article or possibly split in categories for a series of articles. For example when I started the article "Building An Email List with Your Own Newsletter or Ezine", it turned out to be a 3 article series on 3 different ways to build a list.

    Step 4 - Once you have decided the above then begin the article. Create the opening paragraph - and start the body. By the time you finish that you will have some idea on a few things you will need to research. Such as basic facts to back up what you have wrote so far or some current statistics is also a way to go with the finishing of the article.

    Step 5 - Do this research and add it to what you already have in your body. Or another good way to add this, is as an article resource section at the bottom of your article.

    Step 6 - Write the closing of your article, add your signature line and you have just created your article.

    I know many of you are thinking this sounds much easier then it really is. And it may be harder for some then others. If you need to study writing skills a little before you start the official article, that is fine. But never give up. Keep trying to put down on paper what you know and love. Before you know it you will be coming up with many ideas to write articles on.

    Keep in mind it will greatly depend on your passion for your chosen topics and how experienced you are in these areas. That to me is the key to a good article is getting excited enough about something to convey that to your reader. It can be like a light bulb coming on for some, it will help them that much. When you can do that then you have succeeded.
