Do you have a long term strategy?

I’m busy right now putting the finishing touches on my new training program that will be called…

(Drum Roll Please)

“The Webinar Income System”

I’m hoping to share this with you in the next few weeks. You are going to love it. My goal in creating this product is to take someone that is brand spanking new and teach them 5 specific systems to profit with webinars. Oh and by the way… several of those methods… you don’t have to actually give a webinar yourself. I know many people have fear of public speaking so I’ve got you covered!

Why have I been so focused on Webinars that last 16 months? It’s what we call a “Long Term Strategy”

Do you have a long term strategy?

Did you know that people were doing webinars over 560 years ago in Europe? (And you thought Al Gore invented the Internet!)

Ok ok…… they weren’t webinars but they were direct marketing seminars. Here is how they would do it back them. A an old guy would come wheel his cart into town with all his pots and pans, food, goats….whatever he wanted to sell. He would then step up on to a box and start giving demos to people passing by. Pretty soon he would draw a crowd and the excitement would build as he worked his way into his close. If he did a good job, he was able to feed his family that day. If not he may have been tared and feathered!

Over the years “seminar direct marketing” evolved to the traveling sales man, medicine men at carnivals and circuses, world fairs and such.

Specifically in the last 60 years large scale seminars have thrived around the world. Many many millionaires have been created using this method of direct marketing.


There is just something about humans where we crave knowledge the the will to better ourselves. There is always a problem that needs to be solved and there are always people willing help solve those problems.

Direct Marketing Seminars have been around for hundreds of years and will be around for many hundred more. Yes the technology will change, but the core method will always be valid.

I spent a few years traveling the country teaching eBay seminars to thousands of people. We made a lot of money and got to meet and interact with some great folks but there was a big problem.

That little word “Travel”. Sure it was fun for a month or two but got real old fast (and expensive). I always thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could do the same thing but just stay home and have everyone connect via their computers?”

As the years have passed, I’ve watched as the technology has improved in mid 2009 I finally decided to give it a try and turn my “Virtual Seminar” into reality.

Well the rest is history… it’s been one of the most lucrative long term business strategies I’ve ever done.

Direct marketing via webinars is just the next evolution in a marketing strategy that has been around for hundreds of years and will be here for many more.

I’m super excited to share this you in the next few weeks so watch your email!
