Can it be true?! Robert endorsing a Marketing Course?! Isn't that one of the warning signs of the Apocalypse?!

As you might imagine after roaming around my site, I'm extremely skeptical of a lot of the Internet Marketing hype (and in fact, that skepticism was one of the major reasons I built this site in the first place).

I get a fair number of inquiries from Internet Promoters who want to advertise their latest scheme on the site. Most of them are laughable. Most of the rest I won't even sell advertising to!

So you can imagine that when I got cold-called by "Steve" at the "Internet Marketing Center", I was extremely dubious. Another hype-artist with a course on how to make millions. Lucky me.

Steve wanted me to promote the IMC Course, "The Insider Secrets to Marketing Your Business on the Internet" on the site. He went on in detail about how wonderful the course was, how it was full of good tips and practical advice...

Yadda... Yadda... Yadda...

Having decided that Steve had wasted enough of my time, I decided to hit him with my "stopper" question, which usually terminates these conversations.

"Tell you what, Steve," I said, "if the course is that good, send me a copy for review, and if I like it, I'll join your affiliate program."

I expected the next thing I'd hear was Steve hanging up, but to my surprise, he said he'd do just that. And two days later, it arrived via Fed Ex. Two very big binders, some floppies, and an audio tape.

"Damn," I thought, "Now I actually have to look at the silly thing. Oh well, I do need something to read in the bathroom. And if I run out of TP, it may come in handy..."

And you know what? It's a pretty good course! I'm allegedly no slouch when it comes to things internet-related, but I found quite a few tips and insights in the course that I've been able to apply to SelfPromotion.com. If I had bought the course, I would have gotten my money's worth.

And if you're a fledgling Web-Marketer, it will be of even greater value to you, because it'll tell you not only what does work, but what doesn't. While I don't agree with all of the advice in the course (in particular, I think their advice about bulk email, if not applied with restraint, is close to what many people would consider spamming), I do agree that it is full of great advice on selling on the internet, and selling in general.

So, if you're serious about selling things on the net, and want some good advice on how to do it, the "Insider Secrets" course is well worth the investment. If you want to learn more about it, then click here to visit their website. Browse around and see what you think.

Please be aware that the IMC also markets a variety of other services, such as long domain names and credit card processors. I do not endorse these other products.

One final note: The Internet Market Center is paying a commission to me each time one of you buys the course based on my endorsement. All of this money will be donated to my favorite charity, The Salvation Army, which is one of the most efficient charities around.
