1.0 out of 5 stars Infomercial?, June 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Get Rich Click! (Kindle Edition)
This book appears to be nothing but an infomercial for his website. Whenever he starts to tell a good story or give good tips. before finishing he gives a link to his website. And what good are weblinks on a Kindle? I can't imagine what the print edition is like. Do you press a link on a page with your finger and a magical screen appears before you? He's also obsessed with this UPC like codes called QRs which appear throughout the book. I have no access to these codes and thought they took up space and were worthless and interrupted the story.

But more importantly, nearly everything in this book is either pure common sense or easily available elsewhere on the net for free. I really question if some of these reviews aren't submitted by his PR team. Really, a nine page review?

I just don't trust his numbers. He says in one paragraph that the founder of Zappo's is worth $700M after the sale to Amazon. A few pages later he says that it sold for $1B, then later he says Jeff Bezos paid over a billion. Which one is it?

He also goes on to say that he purchased a blinds company in Houston. He said their website outsold both of their retail locations. The Kindle version says the website is [...]. I assume that is a typo for nobrainsBlinds.com. Nonetheless, he said the website business was more successful because it had no overhead. So, I guess the place just ran itself with Japanese Robots and Disney cartoon characters. No phone lines, no internet, no shipping, no labor, no benefits?

I swear this guy will be on late night TV ads in no time.

This is just a story of a man who got lucky buying a domain name and selling it for a fortune. Now, he just plays with his money. But, I think for him to suggest that the average person could recreate what he or many of the others mentioned in the book have done, is just ludicrous.

I regretfully hoped for more.

You have only one review. Therefore, your credibility is nil.

This was a very unhelpful review... I've read the entire book, and it looks like Marc has put in A LOT of effort to show where to begin, and where success lies in the future. He touches on the FUTURE, so Mobile Marketing, and all of that, which is very helpful. I want to ask you one question... could you write a better book then Marc? If so, write one, sell it, become a New York Bestseller, and then your comment above will have much more credibility.. well to me anyway.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, LEARNING THE INS AND OUTS OF THE AFFILIATE MARKETING GAME!!
So when it comes to being a beginner in this Affiliate Marketing game there is always room to learn and continue to gain wisdom!! If you want to learn more about this wonderful business of affiliate marketing please check out www.coffeemoney.info ; www.affiliatemarket101.com ; www.mobilemoneywithrandy.com ; www.millionairesocietyoffers.info ; http://www.profitbank.com/index-23308.html ; www.makingmoneywithrandy.info ; www.gettingpaid101.info & http://profitbankwithrandy.com . There is always valuable information on these sites to assist you in your quest to make more money!! The importance of having and running your own business is the have a business plan and the mindset that you will succeed. You can excel in Affiliate Marketing. There are thousands of Marketers that have become successful millionaires. Not for one minute will I tell you that it is easy or that this will not take hard work. There is such a thing as forum etiquette and it really pays to check you read up this forum rules and rules for posting before you decide to are banned, accused of spamming or generally annoy regular users in the forum who use their forum for an effective communication tool for their niche or area of interest. Once you are familiar with how the particular forum works, then I would recommend you may spend time there getting knowledgeable about the forum dynamics, essential players, main topics becoming discussed etc. Then pick out some discussions you are searching for. If you can option any questions without sound promotional, then do which means that. Alternatively, you can touch upon what someone wrote. If you ever disagree with a article, then do so, but keep it a good comment and use your words constructively. This way you won't draw attention to yourself for all the wrong reasons. You should find others agreeing with therefore, you and even build up a following this way. People who be noticeable for the right reasons do usually tend to get greater recognition. Some forums do not allow links in the feedback section and confine these phones the biography of the user. If this is the result, then this is where someone can purchase your details if they want to find out more about you. If you are permitted to put links to your site afterwards of your comment, then that is great. Try to post comments on the the majority active threads and posts with more views. This way even more people see your brief review. If you offer a few relevant information or solution on the site, then anyone interested in learning more will be most likely to debate to your site together with check things out. Once they found the information useful, they may even recommend it to other community forum users. If i was to leave you with one last tip for properly using forums, it would be to never try to sell anything for a forum. Be yourself without having to be promotional. When you are seen as a credible contributor to boards, more traffic will venture over to your blog or internet site. .There are a number of testimonials about generating income on line and it seems like everybody wants to do it. Now if you think you could also use some extra cash and you think online marketing is the way to go, you should first keep yourself well-informed. Knowing what internet marketing and advertising entails and how the idea works will serve as your weapon for financial success. One thing you have to remember though is you just can't simply quit your day job and expect being successful with this business enterprise overnight. Getting yourself familiar with the business may actually be done by self-studying, with a couple tools, or learning from other individuals who successfully conquered the web marketing world. If you choose to learn the business all by yourself, you will have to go through each phase and this probability of failing on the first attempts is excellent. However, if you are going to rely on tools, you can never be sure which one is better than the others unless people try each tool you can come across with.
Good Luck in your success as an affiliate & internet marketer!!
