Developer Chris Record talks about his Smart Member 2.0 software suiteChris Record is an internet marketer to keep your eye on. In the last year, he did over $2,000,000 in sales on JVZoo alone. He built a platform (Smart Member) to run all his membership sites, the support desks for them and the autoresponder he uses exclusively to email his lists. Smart Member is designed to create membership sites where some or all content is free for members, or some content can be put behind a paywall. It is not built on WordPress, so is not a plugin for that platform. Sites build with his software are hosted on his servers so no additional hosting fees are required.

Yesterday (January 12th), he launched Smart Member 2.0, a souped-up version of the original Smart Member 1.0. He talks about it in the above video. You should watch it get a full understanding of what Smart Member 2.0 has to offer internet and affiliate marketers.

This system is not cheap. It’s not a $97 plugin, or a $197 or even a $297 one. It costs $997. This is a solid product with a track record with a brick-and-mortar company and salaried employees behind it.

This Smart Member launch offer lasts for 2 weeks only, until January 25th. Demand will be high. The launch was originally meant to last a week, but was extended to 2 weeks to give potential buyers the chance to digest the copious amount of information Chris Record provides about Smart Member 2.0 and marketing in general.…

Ben Shaffer makes a killing selling little 30 page ‘how-to’ books on Amazon Kindle for about $3 each. Today he released a new way that you can partner with him and earn royalties…

Earn Royalties from Ben’s ebooks

Royalties are almost as old as commerce itself, but still work just as well in the modern world. It is very rare that something comes along which follows the old royalties method to the tee and which is affordable. Shaffer is changing all of that.

Go here for the full details

If you ever wanted the ability to make a passive income while letting someone else do all the work, then this could be right for you. He’ll be closing this pretty soon once the numbers full up (you’ll understand why it has to be very limited when you check out the offer).

Free Presentation Showing You EVERYTHING You Need To Know To Make Money With Kindle – to access, click the image, then press the “Back” button in your browser and finally, click the “Stay on Page” button that will pop up.

This is not a normal product per se. Or even a ‘done for you’ product. Shaffer is literally letting you become a partner with him where he does all of the work.

Given the amount of work he has to put in, this is a high-ticket product costing $997.

Shaffer has been an internet marketer for over 10 years and has sold (literally) millions of dollars of products both within internet marketing and also other strange niches.…

In mid-September I became aware of of a course that taught you how to sell physical products on Amazon called Amazing Selling Machine.  This was due to a flood of emails from various well-known internet marketers that landed in my Inbox. Naturally, all were trumpeting how great the course was, how they’d all made thousands from it since they bought it when it was first released back in March.

Thing is, when I went looking for reviews, I couldn’t find any that said it was crap, or that people were starting to just see sales coming in but were just covering their costs. It seemed the reviews were all too weighted towards brilliant success.

Life ain’t like that.

Anyway, I contacted one of the gurus ans asked him some pertinent questions about selling physical products on Amazon – questions that someone who’d used the course should have been able to answer. He couldn’t, or wouldn’t, answer any of them – you can learn more about that here.

So that was a big red flag.

Then there was the $3,988 price of the course. Yes, you did get some proprietary software with it but that price put the course way out of reach for most people interested in it.

While I debated whether or not to buy the course, the deadline came and went and Amazing Selling Machine was closed to new members.

Then I heard about Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course. Jim released his course back in 2011 and has kept it updated ever since.…

Popups are starting to become “hot” again. In olden days, popups were driven by Javascript and usually involved displaying a mini page over a main page. They got a bad rep when you started to see umpteen popups appear when trying to leave a site. With the worst offenders, popups would appear faster than you could close them.

Something had to be done and that resulted in the appearance of popup blockers. These are now integrated by default into modern browsers. It spelled the end of mini-page popups.

But popups did still appear, except these ones were based on CSS and DIV tags within a page. The popup was part of the page that showed it. So there was only one popup per page. Much more friendly to visitors. And the way browsers currently work means that there’s always a “Leave This Page”/”Stay On Page” option presented before a popup can appear (when the “Stay on Page” option is clicked).

But popups are passe, aren’t they? It turns out that’s not the case. Advertising is ubiquitous on blogs and websites these days and tends to appear in the same positions on sites so visitors are becoming ad-blind, mentally editing them out of what they see on a page. And that’s bad news for webmasters who rely on those ads for their income.

Popups are unexpected and so they do grab a visitor’s attention. And for that reason they can prove to be lucrative.

But being able to create effective popups these days is not an easy task.…
