Real Guys Real Money-A Review Of Real Guys Real Money

These guys claim to be real life internet marketers who are bucking the system by shunning the “push button” trend. Wait, that can’t be true, most internet marketers are selling the “push button system”, I thought it was required. I shouldn’t say all because I did receive an email yesterday from one of the “Big Guys” and there was no magic button. However the cost of the one system he was offering was sky high. Most likely worth it but sky high non the less.

Ok, so Real Guys Real Money is presented by Eric Holmlund, Paul Counts and Jeff Wellman. Each claim to be very successful internet marketers with each having different income streams. The one thing they do in common to make money online is to market information products. And the one they say they are having alot of success with is the How To Make Money Online niche.

When most of the “Guru’s” are saying to avoid this niche because of over saturation, The Real Guys say go for it. They do agree that the niche is saturated-but-with alot of, lets say unethical characters. Meaning there is a real need for good, honest and ethical marketers to teach this Make Money Online niche. They go on to say that a competitive niche is obviously a profitable niche and lends itself to well to providing education.

They believe the Make Money Online niche will always be in demand. Most people want to make more money but really have no idea how to do it, other than work more hours at what they are currently doing.

This course is basically a big PLR package. PLR means private label rights. When you purchase a PLR package you get to “make it your own” and resell it. So not only can you promote this product you can sell it as well. That means you can get 100% of the sale.

The Real Guys offer in this package one of the top online income strategies of list building. Learning how to build a list is invaluable when it comes to marketing. No list really equals very limited or no sales. Included are videos, power points, sales pages, thank you pages, high converting squeeze pages templates designed for list building.

The cost of all this is $37. Of course as I’ve said in the past when you buy a product that says it offers so much and sells for so little you can expect upsells.

The upsell for this package includes upgraded sales pages with 5 different versions, an additional course on video marketing secrets and a 412 page ebook. Sales pages, power points, thank you pages etc….. accompany the upgraded material as well.

The upgrades are also PLR products as well.

The one time offer upsell costs $97 however if you choose not to get it you are then offered a reduced upgraded package that does not include the extra sales pages or the PLR video marketing course at a cost of $39.

In watching the sales video these guys seem genuine and if the product delivers what they say, it’s well worth the price.

Tellman Knudson and Andy Duncan present Rebel Resistance. This info is about how to make quick cash online. The course best serves two kinds of marketers. Those who may not be in a position to wait on commission checks to start coming in. Or those into network marketing who just need a cash boost from time to time.

Andy and Tellman’s Rebel Resistance goes into some areas not commonly recognized by the majority. These areas include:

  • Lulu
  • iTunes
  • eBay
  • Amazon Kindle
  • Clickbank
  • YouTube
  • Google Checkout

You are advised in the beginning not to be overcome with info overload. It is suggested to 3 of the categories that interest you most and watch the Overview video associated with it. During the selection process if you don’t like one of the 3 picks simply discard it and replace it with another.

What I like about Andy and Tellman’s Rebel Resistance is that it’s thinking outside the box.

You never know when one idea is going to go stale and you’ll need a back up to replace it.

The Overview, Example, Action Steps and Advanced Strategy is a nice format. It’s info in short bursts not all at once. Perfect if your attention span is geared that way or you simply don’t have time to sit through a marathon info session.

Local Mobile Monopoly-A Review Of Local Mobile Monopoly

Local Mobile Monopoly is a follow up to the recently released Mobile Monopoly by Adam Horwitz and Tim Donavan. As the title of this product indicates it explains how text message advertising and local business are a great fit.

If you’ve been researching internet marketing or network marketing for any length of time you know that “local business” is one of the more popular buzz words being used these days.

Now here’s an interesting statistic you may not be aware of; that for the most part people are almost 5 times as likely to open a text message as they are an email when it comes to advertising. That’s probably one of the biggest reasons email clients have put spam filters in place, because those who are connected online don’t want all that ad stuff filling up their inbox.

See how “The Real Guys” are doing their internet marketing.

What does Local Mobile Monopoly do? It provides the tools necessary for you to go to your local businesses and create text ad campaigns. Why wouldn’t a local business just go ahead and do it themselves. Well if you were ever self employed or tried to run a brick and mortar business the biggest reason why is because of time. There doesn’t seem to be enough in a day let alone any time left in the day.

Adam Horwitz and Tim Donovan are both successful online marketers. Do a search on either and you’ll find this to be true. However they do make a few statements on their sales page I’m not on board with. They say you don’t need any skills with PPC, SEO, Media Buying, email list building and the rest of the hard stuff that most people struggle with online. And because of that the path to cash pulling expert can be measured in days, not weeks or months relying on old school methods.

It seems to me that you’re going to have to develop a relationship with your prospective local business client. Convince them that text advertising is going to be a good deal for them. And somehow be able to collect all those cell phone numbers so their patrons can be informed of the daily or what ever deals are being offered.

Web Site + Targeted Traffic = Payday!

Personally I think this sounds like a great idea. Think about it, you’re trying to decide what to do for dinner on the weekend and your favorite restaurant recently sent you a text about their weekend special that you other wise wouldn’t know about. In a society where we want more and more convenience this is a shoe in.

But on the other hand how often are you willing to offer up your cell phone number????

Not convinced about Local Mobile Monopoly? You might just like this better.

I think for the right person, Local Money Monopoly is another great idea from Adam Horwitz and Tim Donovan. But do your research and see how others are doing with this program. Internet marketing forums such as the Warriors Forum is a good place to start.

Success In 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy

I like how this ebook starts out: Success In 10 Steps, don’t get toasted like a Pop-Tart. It happens a lot, folks looking to supplement or replace their incomes join an MLM company with high hopes. And then it happens, either they get bad or ineffective or just no info at all on how to make their goals happen. Then they get frustrated and eventually quit. They then join the ranks of the MLM is a scam crowd.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are some bad companies out there being promoted by individuals who want your quick cash and want nothing more than to move onto the next opportunity.

That’s where Success In 10 Steps fits in the puzzle. This ebook is a guide to help avoid the pitfalls of the industry. The mission statement of this digital read (available in hardback as well) is “Where You Learn HOW To Think, Not WHAT To Think”.

This is all part of the Mentoring For Free folks offer. Check out their website here. I’ve personally talked with a couple of these folks and they really seem interested in your success without any hidden agendas. Kind of refreshing don’t you think. In my opinion they seem to be the watchdogs of the MLM industry, trying to do their best to keep it clean.

DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK
It May Effect Your Income

Success In 10 Steps can be had for free, well not exactly, they do ask for your name, email and phone number. But that’s a small price to pay for the info you receive in this ebook. You will be contacted in a very noninvasive way. It’s more of a “hi, how are ya, did you download and get a chance to read the Success In 10 Steps ebook an if so do you have any question or how can I help”. Their mission isn’t to sell you anything, just to help. I know, what a strange concept.

The Success In 10 Steps covers the following topics and more:

  • You Sometimes Think You’re Nuts-Heck I’ve joined 100 MLM’s
  • The Stupidest Lie They All Tell You
  • Your Warm Market Has Ice In Their Veins
  • Your Best Cheapest Solution
  • The Real Truth About Network Marketing
  • Color To Success
  • Anatomy Of A Prospect’s Mind
  • A System That Works
  • The Dark Side Of MLM
  • Never Underestimate The Cost Of Logic

Michael Dlouhy of Success In 10 Steps tells that in the early 1990’s he joined over 100 MLM opportunities. He went on to track, catalogue, analyze and evaluate everything they did; products, compensation plans, marketing, distributor support, profitability and so on.

The outcome being the good the bad and the ugly of what goes on in the MLM industry as well as how to succeed should you choose to pursue this path to financial gain.

The Mentoring For Free crowd are good people and this ebook, Success In 10 Steps is a great reference tool that should be in your library.

I have no connection to Mentoring For Free, the following material connection disclaimer is an attempt to keep in compliance with FTC guidelines.

RoboForm Secure Password Manager

In this article you’ll discover:

  • how I think I managed to irritate my wife, yet again
  • about a really cool secure password management sofware
  • how to determine if you have a Windows 32 bit or 64 bit operating system
  • how to determine if you have a 32 bit or 64 bit iteration of Internet Explorer
Oh No Not Again

Oh No Not Again

I’ll admit it, I’m no expert when it comes to how a computer works. But over the years I’ve discovered as I’m sure you have as well how certain things work. Or at least you’ve figured out what to do when something doesn’t work, or you know enough to either google or youtube for an answer. Wait, did he just say youtube for an answer? Yep I did, sometimes I just prefer to look and listen instead of read the solution.

So anyhow I decided I needed a secure password manager for all the sites I visit on a regular basis. Well let me preface that statement by saying that my lovely wife decided she wanted one. You see when she logged onto the computer under her user name she discovered that the windows password manager wasn’t keeping her passwords stored. I think what was happening was that when I logged on under my username and then finished my browsing session I would always go to tools and then delete browsing history. Doing so deleted any temporary internet files, cookies and history. And I believe it was deleting the cookies on her side that was responsible for maintaining the passwords. Like I said I’m no expert, that’s just my opinion.

RoboForm

Click Here for RoboForm

So I start to search for a secure password manager and I come across RoboForm. I’ve heard of them before so I decided to delve deeper into their website for more info. They claim to be the most downloaded secure password manager. But what really sold me was the simplicity of how it works. Basically you login to RoboForm once and you have one click access to all your other sites.

Of course you have to set it up, it can’t read your mind or your little notebook where all your passwords are currently stored. Meaning when you go to a website that requires a username and password you type the info in and simply click save and the info is stored in the RoboForm software. It can also be used to fill out forms so it can be used for any site that requires your name, rank and serial number.

Now just in case you didn’t pick up on this little nicety, because it is a software you can access it from multiple locations such as another computer or you mobile device. Because lets face it, we all know sooner or later something will happen to your computer. I may not know much but I do know that.

Ok, so by now you’ve probably figured out that yes I love RoboForm and more importantly so does my lovely wife.

Onto the 64 bit thingy.

During the download process RoboForm asked me if I had Internet Explorer 32 bit or 64 bit. We have two computers, one has Windows XP and one Windows 7. I was kinda thinkin the XP had the 32 bit version and the Windows 7 could have either. However like I mentioned previously I really had no concrete knowledge to back that little theory up so I figured I might as well find out for sure before I muck something up and cause myself undue hours of fix time and a migraine.

I was pretty sure that the Windows XP was a 32 bit system but I wanted to verify. And what I found out through some googleing (is that really a word) that if you have a 64 bit system it would say that in the computer properties. If it doesn’t say “64 bit”, it isn’t a 64 bit system. The computer is old enough that I don’t even remember 64 bit being part of any home computer consumer verbiage.

windows 64 bit

windows 64 bit

I knew for sure that the Windows 7 was a 64 bit system because when I ordered it I found out I couldn’t get it in 32 bit. But for clarity you should left click your start button, when the new screen pops up right click on computer and left click properties to make sure. Because I’m not sure that all Windows 7 iterations are 64 bit.

IE 8

You can use similar detective work for discovering what version of Internet Explorer you have. If you have IE up and running go to the area directly under the URL search bar that has the File, Edit View etc. options. Left click Help, left click About Internet Explorer and a pop up appears that gives you all kinds of info about the version of IE you are using version, cipher strength and product id. Again it’s important to note that if it does not say “64 bit” anywhere in that description you do not have IE 64 bit.

Is RoboForm worth it?

Well it managed to get me in good with my lovely wife again. And I’ve been successfully using it on two different computers with two different operating systems for about 3 weeks now and have experienced no problems or glitches what so ever.

So yes, I believe it’s well worth it and highly recommend it.

How To Sell Network Marketing without fear, anxiety or losing your friends!

In the MLM world you may hear a lot of “there’s no selling” with our company. But in reality the success of an MLM depends on things being sold. Products are sold, services may be sold and most importantly you are selling yourself.

How To Sell Network Marketing without fear, anxiety or losing your friends explains the difference between the traditional sales approach and the Natural Selling way. The traditional way is to put little effort into building rapport and identifying needs. More effort is put into presentations and the most effort put into the close.

In comparison the Natural Selling way puts the most focus on discovering and building relationships. If you do that properly you only have to put minimal effort into the presentation and the close.

Traditionally the one doing the selling really focuses on me, me, me. They approach with the mindset of what’s in it for me.

Using the Natural Way your focus is all about them. You get to know them and in so doing you can discover without the awkward moments whether your opportunity is a good fit for them or not. I’m reminded of the saying “a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still”. Natural Selling is more about teaching you to ask the right kind of questions that will allow the prospect to let you know how the conversation has to flow.

Because lets be honest, not everyone is going to jump on board just because you think you have a great idea.

This would be a great test; walk up to 5 of your closest friends and ask them what they think about MLM. You’re likely to hear words like scam or rip off. However if you get into a conversation with your friends about the state of their personal economy they’re likely to let you know if it’s good or bad. Next question would be something like what are they going to do about it. The following answer will usually tell you if there is a need for a nest question.

You also need to approach these types of conversations without any emotional attachment to the outcome. Now that’s a tough one. The reason we are having these types of conversations is because we want to make money. But the focus really needs to be on the service you could provide. By focusing on the system and not the outcome the outcome will probably be a lot better.

How To Sell Network Marketing explain very well the ideas of:

  • The Cause of Rejection
  • The Power of Dialogue
  • How To Listen Effectively
  • The Art of Asking Questions
  • Starting Effective Conversations

The book covers much more as the above are just some of the major topics.

There isn’t really anything I don’t like about this approach. The material is presented in an easy to read and understand way.

Those in or going into the network marketing or MLM field should take the time to read this book.

For this book and additional Natural Selling products go to this website.

Push Button Cash Site – Seriously?

I’ll admit that I’m somewhat of a email junkie, meaning if I come across an opt-in page that looks the least bit enticing I’ll give my name and email to see what the sender is all about. Sometimes you find some really good stuff out there and sometimes you find…..well lets just say some not really good stuff.

So I’m sifting through my inbox today and I see there’s an email from Maria Andros. Maria Andros is one of the more popular names when it comes to internet marketing. She is known as the Video Marketing Queen. As the title implies she is in the video marketing niche. Maria Andros created two popular video marketing training systems named The Video Conversion Formula and Social Media Traffic Blueprint. And was recently featured as one of The Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs Online.

So I am surprised to see that Maria Andros seems to be a joint venture partner for Daniel Young’s Push Button Cash Site. This newly released software is advertised as follows:

“Top Secret Pushbutton Software Makes $159,720.68 Per Month On Autopilot Using Nothing But Floods Of Highly Targeted 100% Free Traffic”

“Best News: You Can Start Using It In Less Than 3 Minutes From Now”

Click on the picture to see the full Ad, I have no material connection to this product.

The Ad goes on to say it has:

 “Nothing to do with Pay Per Click, Facebook, Twitter, Social Media, Banners, Media Buying, Joint Ventures or any SEO Knowledge”

and

“By Pushing a Button You Can Be Well On Your Way From $0.00 to $4445.60 In Just One Day”

If you act fast you can purchase this software for the reduced price of $47, the regular price is $197. And of course there is the normal 60 money back guarantee.

I’d have to say to date this is by far the most hype filled email I have ever received and I’ve received lots.

I’ll admit I know nothing about Daniel Young so this software may indeed deliver what it claims. However it’s been my experience when you purchase any internet marketing software for $47 you’re also going to be offered a bunch of upsells that are usually relevant to the software doing its job. These are usually one time offers so if you skip over them you don’t usually get a second chance to purchase.

In all honesty I’ve bought some of these programs and intentionally skipped over the upsells because what I’ve learned is that for the $47 purchase you usually get that back in some sort of informational value. This is ok if you’re new to internet marketing and could use the info however if you’ve been at it a while it’s usually just a waste of your $47.

So I’m not sure why someone like Maria Andros is promoting this product. I’m guessing that there is some prize give-away being offered to the joint venture partner who sells the most and I don’t fault her for that.

Just keep in mind when deciding to purchase Push Button Cash Site or other products like it that like in so many other areas of life, you get what you pay for.

Make Real Money on The Internet by Stephen Pierce

Stephen Pierce is an interesting guy who went from troubled youth to successful internet marketer. Here’s a guy that never had a formal education and was even kicked out of school. Went on to become homeless having to rely on the kindness of others to live in an empty office space using public bathrooms to take care of his personal hygiene.

He had to file for bankruptcy twice, became involved with the wrong kind of people and ended up getting shot. He still carries the bullet in his leg as a reminder of who not to be.

Wanting to turn his life around he started a few businesses, some had moderate success and some failed miserably. Becoming frustrated he took a mental break and decided to switch gears again.

Using internet research he started discovering what people were doing in the financial market. This eventually led to him becoming someone sought after for his knowledge in that area. That soon led to creating a website and on to creating the 7 Critical Steps for Making Real Money on the Inernet.

The topics discussed in this book are:

  • Developing Your Profit Instincts
  • You’ve Got Products
  • The Perfect Business
  • Income Forever
  • There’s Something About Traffic
  • Please Don’t Touch
  • Cash Injection Accelerator

I really like the chapter on There’s Something About Traffic. The book explains three traffic sources. One is free traffic, two is performance traffic and three is paid traffic. I won’t go into the specifics here about each traffic methodology but the important thing to get here is that an entrepreneur should be using a very diversified traffic strategy to become successful.

Both informative and inspirational this is one of those books I pick up often to leaf through for tidbits of info.

This book is free + shipping and is available here.

The DNA Of Internet Marketing by Lehman Hailey

Lehman Hailey, a successful owner of a mortgage company with offices in 2 states and 40 loan officers came to the realization that he had become a slave to his work. As a result he had no free time for a family or personal life. Having become disenchanted with the corporate American business model he knew he needed to make a change.

In keeping with his entrepreneurial spirit he decided to go into the “work at home” industry. The requirements were basic; make the same or more income he had with the mortgage company AND have time left over at the end of the day.

In six months he was able to walk away from the mortgage business and in the following 4 years turned his work at home business into a thriving internet venture.

The DNA of Internet Marketing includes info on:

  • Establishing Your Target Market
  • Squeeze Pages and Branding Sites
  • PPC
  • Article Marketing
  • Video Marketing and Podcasting
  • Press Releases
  • Web 2.0 & Social Marketing Sites
  • Outsourcing
  • Marketing Resources

And some bonus chapters to round things out.

Free List Building Quick Start Videos

The material is presented in an easy to understand way. I’m a big fan of keeping things simple and that’s how I like my books to be as well. When an author gets into using academic level vocabulary I just about can’t help from doing one thing and that’s falling asleep. Fancy words don’t make the book good, it’s the content. And this book doesn’t disappoint in that area.

I particularly like the chapter on establishing your target audience. This is so often overlooked. In interne marketing it isn’t enough to come up with an idea and send it to market. You have to know where the money is being spent and dive into that stream. You also have to know who your customer is, what do they do, what is their age group, where do they live, and where do they hang out.

If you’re having any trouble in the areas mentioned above I would get this book available at Amazon.

The Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard

Brendon Burchard, founder of the Experts Academy and author of the bestseller Life’s Golden Ticket latest release is The Millionaire Messenger.

The ideology of this book is simple yet brilliant and motivating in my opinion. At its core level it will uncover for you 3 things.

  1. that what you know from experience and can share with the world may have more importance and market value than you ever dreamed
  2. that you are here to make a difference in the world and the best way to do that is to share what you know with others to help them succeed
  3. you can get paid for sharing what you know and in the process build a very lucrative business and a profoundly meaningful life

The contents include:

  • A Crash Course in Sharing My Message
  • Behind The Guru Curtain
  • The Expert Calling and Lifestyle
  • YOU: Advice Guru
  • 10 Steps to an Expert Empire
  • The Millionaire Messenger’s Money Map
  • The Messenger Mindset
  • The Millionaire Mandates
  • The Messenger Manifesto
  • Trusting Your Voice

One of the biggest things I took away from this book is that you shouldn’t let your lack of knowledge about a particular topic hold you back from being an expert if that’s what you want to do. The book goes on to say that there are two kinds of experts, one is a results based expert and two is a research expert.

Now I know what your thinking, it someone hasn’t walked the walk how can I trust them. The book explains it like this. Say you want info on buying a home and the person you first talk to has never owned a home or for that matter even rented a place. Would you take his advice, probably not. However if you talked to someone who has never owned or rented BUT conducted very in depth interviews with the top 10 real estate investors in the country, would you take his advice? I’d be inclined to say yes and I bet you would to.

Another example is the book Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. This book was first published back in the late 1930’s and is still considered required reading for those going into any business. I think most would be surprised to know that Napolean Hill prior to publishing the book never realized any major success in his own life. Of course the book changed that.

The Millionaire Messenger is only 160 pages in length and is an easy read.

This is a must have in your business library.
