You may not have agreed with all his tactics but our industry just lost a one of our top marketers and a true pioneer.

My condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed greatly.

Cory was one of the first guys that really figured out marketing on the internet. His impact can be seen all over the web in sales letters and email marketing guides. I took his affiliated course a long time ago and found it a wealth of knowledge. May his legacy live on the internet indefinately.

Is it the same Corey Rudl? The article doesn't identify the victim's occupation, but it does list his residence as being La Jolla, CA. Internet marketer Corey Rudl's operation is headquartered in Blaine, WA. While it's certainly not unreasonable to think he could operate his business from another state, I haven't seen anything yet (other than the fact that the name is not a common one) that identifies this victim as the internet marketer.

That said, I in no way wish to imply that this accident is any less of a tragedy if it doesn't involve a "celebrity." I wish the families of both men comfort in this time of terrible loss.

This LA Times article confirms that Rudl worked in Internet marketing.

A tragic accident indeed for both passengers involved.

I'm sure he'll continue to pop up every now and then.

Too young. Too fast.

Sad. I made some nice money off a couple of his pointers and we continue to see his looooong ad pages all over the net.

I learned a lot from Corey's sites and newsletters when I was just starting in this business. This is a big shock.

My condolences to his family.

ouch- but hopefully it will moderate the hours I spend staring at porsches and lambo's online.

I guess the lesson is- if you get rich quick when you're young, you should still emphasize living conservatively.

My condolences to his family,

My wishes go to their loved ones.

99% of his tactics were black hat but Mail Loop 5 rocked. I had the pleasure of speaking to him on several occasions. Love him or hate him, he put his imprint on our industry.

<sic>I believe he was the pioneer of the 85-page sales letter.</sic>

Our first web site became profitable because of Corey. It's success enabled us to go on to other profitable ventures. We owe a lot to him for helping us get off the ground many many years ago.

he will be missed....

You always have to respect the pioneers, and he was one. What a complete shame.

Best wishes to his family.

My condolences to his friends and family. I tried to sell him a domain name once.

I was never a big fan of his tools or tactics, but he was a very well recognized Internet Marketing Pioneer. I first bought one of his books back in 1998 which came with a little spider on a floppy disk which would harvest email addresses from news groups so that you could spam them -- Nasty.

HIs first website was a car website. I forgot the name. It's a bit ironic that he dies in a car crash.

I was just reading through some of his sales literature last week. Quite a shock to hear about this.

Sad.

Very sad, luckily it's a rare event that the greatest people on the Web die, and it's always a shame when they do.

I guess the lesson is- if you get rich quick when you're young, you should still emphasize living conservatively.

Sorry, but I have to totally disagree. He died doing something he clearly loved. I don't think the slight possibility of death should be a deterrant to doing something you really love, and this guy loved cars. The real tragedy is when people die crossing the street.

Funny thing is, that was "acceptable" back in 1998 unless you were pushing kiddie porn.

Sorry, but I have to totally disagree. He died doing something he clearly loved. I don't think the slight possibility of death should be a deterrant to doing something you really love, and this guy loved cars.

I agree 100%. However, many people would argue that riding in a street car (he wasn't even driving) without proper safety equipment at speeds of 150-165 mph is taking unnecessary risks. Had the two of them been in a properly equipped race car with harnesses, etc. chances are they would both still be alive.

Not to be disrespectful or anything, I just think it's an important point to consider. You shouldn't let the possibility of death be a deterrant to doing things you truly love, but you should take all appropriate safety precautions when doing these things.

My sincerest condolences to both families, surviving wives and children. The driver of the car and his wife had just had a baby girl barely a month ago. :(

I subscribe to his newsletter and last summer I received nearly daily invitations to sign up for the big marketing seminar he sponsored to celebrate his wedding. But even as the frequency of his e-mails drove me nuts, I learned a lot from how he did it. Each e-mail took a different approach and tried to push different buttons. I feel I got a valuable course in e-mail marketing techniques just from studying his sales campaign.

Even though I don't agree with all of his techniques, I'll miss him, as will many in the ecommerce field.
