Associate Programs Newsletter #67 (Special Edition)
I reckon a guy who can produce $750,000 in sales for a company in its first year on the Internet deserves a Special Edition of this newsletter. Read on… I'm sure you'll agree.
Nothing but ‘Net: How I Generated $750,000 in Internet Revenue With Virtually No Advertising Costs by Michael Campbell
Internet “gurus” by the mile are clamoring to offer us advice. So it's good to find one who can point to cold hard facts which prove he knows what he's talking about.
Michael Campbell has been involved with marketing on the Internet since 1993. He's constructed an informative web site, helped put together university level courses and given weekly half-day seminars – for $800 a person.
“I decided to stop talking about it, roll up my sleeves and do the work myself,” Michael says. “I set out to prove that if you do what I've been saying all along you could make enormous amounts of cash selling dirt world stuff over the Internet.”
Michael teamed up with a guy who was selling cellular phone accessories out of his parents' basement. For a year, Michael followed his own advice to promote the company and at the end of that year he tallied up the results: $750,000 in sales!
Michael's new book, “Nothing but ‘Net”, is published by the acclaimed Declan Dunn/Patrick Anderson team at ADNet. The book describes the tools and methods Michael used to achieve $750,000 in sales and shows you step by step – in plain English – how you can do it.
“Marketing a company, product or service on the Net is not rocket science, it's easy!” Michael says. Believe me, if you can use a computer and a word processor, you can do this stuff!”
What I love about this book is the way Michael manages to give precise, useful details I haven't read anywhere else – and does it using easy to understand, plain English.
For example, if you have a look at the web site Michael is promoting, you'll probably be surprised. The web page design doesn't follow some of the “rules” we've all read elsewhere. But it works! It sells – and Michael explains in careful detail why it was constructed like that, and how it creates a “buying” mood by looking similar to print catalogs we're all used to buying from.
Three of the 12 chapters in his book cover getting top placement on search engines:
How to Choose Keywords and Domain Names
Designing Web Pages Search Engines Will Love
Tactics for Using Search Engines to Your Advantage
He has figured out how to use “hook” pages while avoiding search engine turn-offs. The tactics Michael describes work. The site attracts 38,000 unique visitors a month. And those visitors must be correctly targeted – because they spend over $60,000 a month.
Other topics covered include tracking, how to set up a sales database, linking strategies, advertising in newsgroups (Michael describes a way which works for him), how to write like a pro, e-mail marketing, and using coupons and traditional advertising gimmicks for added benefit.
Michael says he spent a whole year and more than $10,000 searching for the right tools. He'll save you a pile of money by telling you which tools he uses, which marketing newsletters are best, and he also gives you an essential list of links to his mentors and primary information sources.
Here's the best part. The book doesn't cost $195 or so. It's only $38. I believe it's incredible value for money.

Anyone who signed up to promote Declan Dunn's “Winning the Affiliate Game” doesn't have to “re-sign” to start promoting “Nothing but ‘Net”. You can just go straight to the sign-up page.
Once there, look for the note in the yellow box (just above the sign-up form). Just enter your existing affiliate number and click “Go!” to be taken to the banner and text links page for “Nothing but ‘Net”. The two-tier program pays 25% and 10%. However, I strongly recommend that you also get the book and start using Michael's traffic boosting techniques.
P.S. This week I took the big step of hiring my first full-time assistant, Nathan Power. I've told him that to earn his pay he has to boost our traffic and sales. One of his first jobs will be to closely study “Nothing but ‘Net”.[UPDATE: Michael Campbell has stopped selling this product. If you want a really good, comprehensive instruction manual on affiliate marketing, I recommend Rosalind Gardner's Super Affiliate Handbook. Here's a review of Super Affiliate Handbook.]
All the best
