    Issue 105: July 23, 2005
    Harvey Segal, Editor

    Hello SuperTips readers,

    I received two very DIFFERENT messages after the last

    * One, thanking me for the newsletter, came from a newbie.

    * The other reader was the extreme OPPOSITE of a newbie.

    So what would that be ?

    A website owner ?

    No - more than that

    A very experienced marketer ?

    Try again.

    A guru ?

    No - even better.

    A super guru !

    Yes - he is the man who first introduced me to Internet
    marketing - way back in 1997.

    And his was the first book I ever purchased.

    Note, I said book not ebook.

    Hard to believe but there were no such things as proper
    ebooks in those days.

    I recall seeing his ad about how you could sell
    information on this new medium called the Internet and
    trotted off to my bank to get some dollars to send off.

    Well there was no way to buy online then.

    And after receiving his book I suggested - because I had
    seen it done elsewhere - that maybe we could have an
    arrangement whereby if I sold a book for him he would give
    me 50% commission.

    I think they now call this idea an affiliate program ?

    Such things were either unheard of then or in their

    Like autoresponders, ad trackers, mailing list software.

    There was no Google, PayPal, ClickBank.

    Who knew about search engine rankings, cloaking or - the
    latest fad - blog and ping ?

    Although we now have so many useful tools to help us
    Internet marketing was so much less complicated then.

    And now with all this advanced technology we seem to
    forget the newcomer.

    I'm continually being asked for advice on how to get
    started and basic questions like how to get a domain name,
    link it to a host site and use ftp

    So here's my plea: we really need someone to develop a
    product which takes newcomers from start to finish with
    explanations all the way.

    Anyway back to the super guru.

    Who is he ?

    Well you might be one of his newsletter subscribers - he
    has over 150,000.

    If not you should certainly have seen his articles - they
    appear all over the Net.

    He is the very famous Jim Daniels.

    So let's understand how he became a super guru and see if
    we can emulate him.

    Well he was one of the first to begin a regular
    newsletter - the BizWeb Gazette - always filled with
    valuable information.

    Typically Jim will describe a new tool or technique that
    he has come across and explain exactly how he has
    implemented it and the results he achieved. All explained
    in simple to understand language. Then he will turn this
    into an article and distribute it to publishers eager for
    good content. Which of course means more links back to his
    site and more subscribers.

    But it's possible that the pupil may now be able to teach
    a trick or two to the master - and here I offer you my tip
    for today.

    I'm now developing articles which will provide even more
    incentive for publishers to distribute. Because the
    resource link at the end is rebrandable - which means
    publishers can profit with commissions from subsequent

    To show how it's done here are my articles so far

    23 Ways To Use An Ad Tracker

    How To Produce The PERFECT Viral Ebook

    As mentioned in a previous issue I plan to distribute them
    with the aid of Article Announcer and I'll show how, with
    my results, in a later newsletter. Just in the same way
    that Jim operates.

    If you want to look at Article Announcer before then just
    click here

    Going back to Jim's subscriber base let me show you the
    power of a 150,000+ list.

    He mentioned my book 101 SuperTips in his newsletter last
    year and declared it "the best ebook on Internet Marketing
    I've read in years"

    I was able to write to him the next day:

    "Jim, you know those hype type messages where they say 'my
    hit counter was spinning out of control'.

    Well for the last hour it's actually been happening as my
    autoresponder is getting requests for my book at the rate
    of 2 or 3 every minute. It's now over 150 in the first

    But what I must tell you is that Jim made no profit from
    his announcement and recommendation.

    He did NOT request a customized version of my book.

    Indeed, as well as being a top guru he is also
    acknowledged as one of the Net's good guys.

    You'll find 101 SuperTips (a free book) here

    But we're forgetting - why did Jim write to me ?

    Well he asked if I would like to take a look at his latest
    product. It's a CD which is the ANSWER to the plea I made

    A complete step by step plan for the newbie.

    Actually it's more than that - it's also for the other
    type of newbie, the one who had been involved in Internet
    marketing but is still struggling - in other words a
    newbie to SUCCESS.

    The CD is superbly organised into 18 separate sections,
    with audio and visual aids, starting from the most logical
    - how to get ideas for a web business product.

    It then moves progressively into areas such as keyword
    research, website creation (with a WYSWIG tool provided),
    search engine optimisation, article writing (of course),
    affiliate programs and much more.

    After viewing the information you are then guided to
    actually carry out the task for each section.

    You can keep the CD on your PC like a bedside book and
    simply click to your topic of interest. It's just like
    having a super guru at your side.

    So here is how I replied to those two messages I received
    after the last issue

    * To Jim:

    "as a resource for a newbie to Internet marketing it's the
    best of it's kind"

    * To the newbie:

    "just go and look at this CD ..

    Yeah, I have to say, Jim Daniels is a class act who stands out among the many hucksters and snake-oil salesmen on the web.

    I have his first book and it's a great no B.S. guide to making a living on the web. Getting an actual book (as in made from trees) is much easier reading than staring at an ebook on my monitor flickering at me at 60 HZ.

    Thanks for the link.

    From one guru to another.

    Jim Daniels was one of the gurus I featured in my first
    book Guru Magic (which is free at )

    Another was Michael Campbell who is one of the very top
    experts in the field of search engine optimization.

    Here is how Michael reviewed Jim's course.


    This course is nothing like I've ever seen. It uses an animated
    butler-like person to help guide you instead of a real human.
    It's downright cute and amusing. It certainly takes the edge off
    the learning experience, making it a far more pleasurable one.

    We're taken on a 'view it and do it' tour of all the fundamentals
    of running an online business. Starting with keyword research, we
    go through the process of researching the competition, deciding
    what we want to sell, customizing html templates, getting
    graphics, and the basics of making search engine friendly pages.

    After completion of the first two sections, we're taken through
    the process of marketing our new site. The little animated butler
    teaches us all the fun...damentals of email marketing, search
    engine traffic, content sharing, affiliate programs and joint
    ventures. All the essentials are covered.

    The 'view it and do it' is a great concept to jump-start an
    Internet business, especially for newcomers to the web. After you
    watch something performed by the butler, you can immediately
    click on the link, which leads to online tutorials, and a back
    end that allows you to master the tasks that you've just seen.

    The only real 'weakness' in this course is a lack of html
    tutorials. The course does include an html editor and
    templates. But it relies on modifying the templates to get
    started. That's ok for most people, but personally, I'd rather
    learn an html editor and have more freedom in my website designs.

    But going it 'the long way' and learning from scratch is not for
    everyone. As long as you don't mind starting from templates -
    which can save a heck of a lot of time - this course is a very
    slick package. You'll hardly even notice that you're learning.

    EZ Web Business Builder is very entertaining, professionally
    produced and easy to use. If it's a fast track to building a
    successful online business that you're after, this course is for
