Can You Really Get Rich Quick Selling Info Products Online?

June 30th, 2009 by Bob Bly

There are more gurus out there than you can shake a stick at selling courses on how to “get rich quick” selling information products on the Internet.

But how many are the real deal?

I’ve listed the reputable ones I can think of on the site below:

Have you had experience with any of these folks and their products — pro or con?

Any good Internet marketing teachers I should ADD to the list?

Any I should delete?

    I’d add Jimmy D. Brown. He’s how I got into information marketing in the first place. He carries programs in different formatting structures and I’m thrilled with the ones I’ve purchased. I started with his Small Reports Fortune and went from there. Didn’t like the set up for his Membernaire program. It’s a once a month set up – and I wanted to work faster than that. But it’s perfect for someone who must keep their day job going and just want to work on setting this up on the side.

    Otherwise, the people at the top of this list, besides you, are Frank Kern and Yanik Silver, for information marketing. Both have the attitude of giving your customers 1000% return on what they paid for.

    Yanik’s Maverick newsletter is loaded with useful information, even when it deals with stuff, like PPC ads, that I don’t use. He’s a bit more advanced than I’m ready for, so I didn’t keep up with him, but I’m definitely going back when I reach a certain point.

    I like Frank’s way of experimenting with different methods of connecting with his audience. He’s not afraid to try something new, and he’s not afraid to be honest. He and Trey do not sell you with a get rich quick scheme with their Infomillionaire – if you pay attention in their videos for it, they stress that you can get there, but you may have to work harder than you ever had in your life getting there (referring to the amount of writing you’ll have to put in). But they make it easy for you to make those steps – and they also instruct you on how to use affiliate business to start making money until you do build your own product up. Only complaint I have about their programs is the videos they use. While excellent in quality, they are not posted in downloadable format so I can save them and listen to them later. Something I need with my schedule.

    I’d think about adding Ryan Deiss to the list also… He does great training on membership sites and list building, which are important to information product marketers.

    And of course, Michael Masterson’s work is superb.

    Lots of others on the list are great. I’ve followed them online, just haven’t purchased anything from them, even though they have excellent programs and products. I had to stop somewhere! LOL

    Jim Turner may be someone to keep an eye on…it may not take him long to become qualified for this list.

    And I’d think about adding Nick Usborne. I love his advice because he’s one of the few who show you how to market your site without using PPC ads and still get the results.

    I might add Shawn Casey, though my experience of his stuff is limited. What I have heard seems full of good ideas. Anyone else had more experience with him and his products?

  3. Darrin Donnelly said:

    I think Pat O’Bryan should be added. He brought in a half-million last year.

    And while he’s not actually an “infoproduct guru”, I think many lessons can be learned from a guy like Timothy Sykes, who says he sold $150,000 worth of infoproducts (mostly homemade DVDs) from his blog last month.

    Hi Bob,

    I am sure you don’t have any problems to research those names.

    Eben Pagan
    Jeff Johnson
    Ed Dale

    Those guys can also prove the success of their students (those students, who take actions – we know how it goes)

    Are you still researching ‘Get Rich’ schemes? I don’t think Bill Gates ever did that. To get rich, you don’t have to learn to get rich.

  8. Bob Bly said:

    Strategic Management: You’re right. He didn’t. But I’m not Bill Gates. And neither are you. If your point is that you shouldn’t gain knowledge to succeed, I disagree 100%.

  9. John W. Furst said:

    Thanks Bob!

    That reminds me on a quote by Frank Kern, “What’s the point of getting rich slow? … I mean, would you buy my new course, ‘How to get rich slowly’?” Or Clayton Makepeace asking in one of his ads, “Anything wrong with getting richer quicker?”

    The main question is, “Do you deserve to become rich?” If you provide great value, the answer is yes. If you rip off people, the answer is no. Becoming rich is about giving not about taking.

    Yours
    John

    PS.: Ray Edwards certainly deserves to be on the list too. Sorry for leaving him out earlier.

    I doubt if there’s a way to get rich quick by just selling information products online. For me, lots of hardwork must be invested in order to get rich.

  12. Phil said:

    A couple more:

    Brian Clark (teachingsells.com)
    Yaro Starak (new on the block, but the membershipmastermind.com content is excellent)
    Russell Brunson (his new product Micro Continuity is very good)
    Mark Joyner (how could we leave him off the list!?)
    Michel/Sylvie Fortin

  13. Colin Edwards said:

    Peter Bowerman is one of the good guys with an entertaining style of writing books that are almost training manuals in their own right. He is strong on marketing and gives you [Bob] plentiful praise and credit for getting him started. Peter is the ‘Well-fed’ writer and publisher guy.

  14. Bob Bly said:

    Colin: Peter is a friend, but I think of Peter as an expert in copywriting and self publishing of paper books, not Internet marketing. Do you think I am wrong?

    Here are names that I believe deserve to be listed…

    Tom Antion
    John Carlton
    Chris Carpenter
    Ewen Chia
    Willie Crawford
    Joel Comm
    John Delavera
    Lisa Diane
    Dave Guindon
    Gary Halbert
    Andy Jenkins
    Eric Louviere
    Jay Conrad Levinson
    Jonathan Leger
    Brett McFall
    Anthony Robins
    Socrates Socratus
    Brian Tracy
    Dr. Mike Woo-Ming

    These lists always amaze me.

    First, the originator always seems to include their own name, probably without nomination.

    Then, the originator’s friends seem to pop onto the list.

    What is missing from these listings is objective criteria that determined the reason that a person’s name is listed. (Of course, being the Blog owner, or having friends are less than objective.

    I suspect that the motivation for creating such a list is to bring in backlinks from the big mailing list owners whose name appears on the Hall of Fame list.

    Besides indicating that objective criteria were not used to build the Hall of Fame list, names that should have been included probably indicate that limited research and thought went into building the Hall of Fame. Or, maybe the missing names indicate that the Hall of Fame List Builder is less-than friendly with a few folks.

    Objective criteria would also identify whether the folks on the Hall of Fame list make their money from copywriting, telemarketing, coaching, seminar production or direct mail.

    The last issue concerns the reputation of some of the folks whose names were listed. Rejecting names for more than a few tarnishes might be another objective measure. The Upcoming FTC rules will be interesting because we will see how these Gurus are repositioned once a measure of truth in advertising is required.

I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    We all know that natural milk in mother’s is healthier for the newborn as it contains Lauric acid. The benefits of coconut oil are that unlike any other oils, the oil contains fewer calories and its fat content is easily converted into energy. Olive oil is also good, but not after it has been heated.

    This is often a subtle change and it can occur very slowly.
    Even if in your divine wisdom you cannot see anything good coming out of the choices
