Imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery

From the InterWebs:

“I created my first portfolio website way back in 2008 when I finally had enough design work to justify building a website. I was young, inexperienced and relatively unknown in the design community and I wanted to create a website concept that would help differentiate me from other designers….”

The Good, the Bad, and the Not-So-Nice-Looking

Over the years, I’ve found myself on a few marketer’s mailing lists — okay, make that a lot of mailing lists — and I’ve found that you can learn a lot about an Internet Marketer by the offers they forward to their list.

I understand and accept that most Internet Marketers, regardless of what other niche’s they are marketing to, tend to also prey on fellow marketers.  Especially “newbies”.  Some of these products have good value, while others, not so much.

EMP: Finished Going Through the Course

As I mentioned earlier, I’m reviewing Don Nobinger’s Easy Money Products program.  First, let me say that I haven’t had a chance to even look at the bonus material yet.  But I have gone through a first viewing of all the included videos and perused the random e-book products that were included.

The PLR e-book material is fairly well written, is of decent length, and seems to be complete packages.  The videos in the course show an over-the-shoulder view of Don bundling several info products together to create a larger, higher value package.  This is good.  It’s a skill everyone who is interested in using PLR products can use. 

EMP: Easy Money Products

I recently came across Don Nobinger’s Easy Money Products program and thought I’d give it a try.  After all, what could be better than having everything written for me and getting specific instructions on what to do with it, right?  Well, we’ll see — I’m going to go through the program and let you know how I do.  It also came with Hybrid Money Machine as a bonus, so I’ll go ahead and review that as well.

When success is bad

I had done the research, and it all looked good. I set up the page and pointed to an affiliate product as a test and turned loose my ad campaign. It was an immediate sucess!

Unfortunately, it was only immediate. After the first two days, there’s been nothing.  I’m still getting plenty of click-throughs, but no more sales .. it’s now to the point where the campaign is no longer worth it, so I’m dropping it.

I don’t know which is worse, having a new campaign be an abject failure from the get-go, or having a false start, like this one.

Reason #978 that the Corporate World sucks

Yes, I’m still working at a corporate job.  One that I’ve been mildly happy at — which is probably why I haven’t been putting as much energy into Internet Marketing as I probably could have.  I’m been working there for nearly 11 years and have weathered through several reorganizations and restructuring plans.  In fact, we just recently (last year) went through another one, in I was re-tasked from providing generalized IT support for the local computer room to being one of only two people providing specialized support for 8 sites in the North American region.  Although I live on the West coast, as does the other guy on the team, I’ve been assigned to support those on the East coast — no biggie, it just means my day starts and ends a bit earlier than most.
