I'm not the type to fall easily for scams. I'm very skeptical about it, sounds too good to be true (and it probably is) and his flashy words in his "letter" are too flashy for my taste. He's got testimonials from people who attended his seminars but I still remain skeptical.
Did a search for his name, lots of affiliate sites and press releases came up but little else. Could be all one big set-up so any ideas how I could investigate him and his "expertise" further before I decide to spend big money for his course? He does offer a guarantee but not sure I believe it.
If you have a suspicion of who I'm talking about or have information about him, please contact me in private if the mods don't allow this to be posted.
He certainly knows how to get joint ventures - the course has been promoted to death in the last week. So much so that I have set up an email filter to delete any reference to it.
Purchase a few marketing books online by REAL authors who don't use the flashy stuff to attract folks.
I apologize for the negative attitude but I had my share of experiences with these types back when I was a newbie. You may need to buy a few books and do a lot of reading, but you will gain sooo much more from the real research/experience the authors rely on.
Hope that helps
Nonetheless, could you recommend some good books that have helped you in your ventures? I already purchased some but always looking out for interesting reading.
Here are of my favorites that taught me a lot.
There is also an "SEO Instruction Syllabus" [webmasterworld.com] available in the supporters forum. I have a more complete list of my "supporter's forum" favorites if anyone is interested. There are some fantastic threads there, but it's difficult to find them since supporters is not searchable.
Keep reading here. There is no shortcut to success, and I'm sure almost anything they will teach you in a seminar is written about in depth somewhere at WW. Without sounding like a total skeptic, my mother always told me, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is". It's always been good incentive to fully investigate something before making a decision for me, and held true many, many times.
And I have been told numerous times...if someone has some special secret to getting traffic, then why share it...unless it's not proven.
Here is a brief list of what he will probably go into:
Basically, all this info you can find all over. Unless this guy has tested each 'trick' and is able to tell you that trick X increases your traffic by Y%, then he is just echoing what others have said
