The full title of this report turned into a book by Rich Schefren is
Internet Business Manifesto: A Big Business Was Just A Small Business That Did The Right Things. A Wealthy Business Owner Was An Opportunity Seeker Who Became An Entrepreneur
In my review posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book a rating of Stars. I need to explain.
Here is my review.
How much? That’s ridiculous
It was hard rating this legendary report on Internet marketing at the 3 stars level but let me explain my rating.
1 Star for anyone trying to charge £396 for a printed version of this promotional report. It was available online for free for 10 or more years as a PDF. It’s not worth it at these prices.
5 Stars for the original impact the report had on Internet marketers in general and on me in particular.
Back in the mid 2000s, Internet marketing was often promoted as an easy way to make big money. Thinking back, this was strange when there seemed to be new, essential to know techniques coming out every few weeks. [continue reading…]
I thought this was a useful summary from Ryan Deiss’ DigitalMarketer.com and how it applies mainly for digital marketing.
The key date Is 25 May 2018.
It applies to anyone with personal data in the European Union including the UK before and after Brexit regardless of where the business is based.
Here is a long video presentation from an English law specialist, Suzanne Dibble. [continue reading…]
Profit Hacks is the latest course promoted by Rich Schefren and Strategic Profits and contains the ideas of the Australian entrepreneur, Pete Williams.
I’d love to say that my Profit Hacks review is independent but I’m an affiliate. I’m in this for the money so if you buy after clicking through from my links, I’ll earn a commission.

In fact I’m such a good affiliate for Rich Schefren that I’ve been given free access to Profit Hacks to take a look around.
I’ve earn my success by writing reviews that are as honest as I can make them, that highlight the good and the bad in the product being reviewed and that make it clear that the product isn’t right for everybody.
If you’ve been a member of Rich Schefren’s Founders Club, you’ll know how good his audio dispatches are each week.
Rich is probably the most thoughtful of the Internet marketing gurus and one of the three that I give most attention to (the others are Ryan Deiss and Glenn Livingston if you wondered).
Each week he sends out a short, thought-provoking mp3 recording with a pdf transcript if you prefer to read.
These are the short briefings he prepares for his private coaching clients before he starts the Q&A sessions and he thought it would be a good idea to share them with Founders Club members. [continue reading…]
I’ve wrestled with the paradox of the value for money of information products for many years.
I’ve bought plenty of excellent books for £10 and I’ve also paid hundreds of pounds to hear someone teach a small part of what is in a book in a day or even half day seminar.
Sometimes I’ve felt ripped off. Other times I’ve thought that I’ve had great value.
I’ve had to think about what makes the difference.

These details on the Product Launch Formula from Jeff Walker used to be a popular lens on Squidoo. Unfortunately they’ve tightened their policy about affiliate marketing and I expect it to be deleted. Rather than delete the information which has attracted a lot of traffic, I have decided to move it to this blog.

Rich Schefren was one of the very first Internet marketing gurus I encountered online.
Unusually it wasn’t through his legendary free reports that I became a customer. I went straight into the Business Growth System after seeing the product launch email. I had no choice but to buy the day before I went on a two week safari holiday.
Like most people who get caught up in the Internet marketing world, I then indulged myself on plenty of other gurus but I’ve always kept a close eye on what Rich is doing.
These days I have learnt to focus my attention on just three – Rich, Glenn Livingston and Ryan Deiss.
They are three different characters with different perspectives but if they don’t have an opinion about a subject, it’s probably much more hype than substance and therefore not worthy of my time.
I’m excited about Digital Marketer Lab from Ryan Deiss.
What sets Ryan Deiss apart from most of the other Internet marketing gurus is that he is active in many different niche markets but shares what he finds works as a by-product of his success.
You see, Ryan is big on the boring task of testing.
You could do it yourself if you’ve got the time, the mentality, the presence in different markets, the traffic and the imagination to do it…
Or you can piggyback on what Ryan Deiss has done and is willing to share in Digital Marketer Lab (the link takes you to my more detailed review on my Online Profits blog).

Rich Schefren made his name with his Business Growth coaching program.
>>> Business Growth System Review – Rich Schefren Coaching
Since then he has launched products like the Business Acceleration Program, Maven Marketing and the Guided Profit System.
He’s also had a monthly membership club called the Founders Club that, in my view has never received the attention that it deserved.
