The Biggest, Most Bad-Ass List of Awesome Marketing Lists...

by colmodwyer 54 replies
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to get on as many good lists as possible to expand my swipe file and gather some new marketing ideas.

I write for a big publisher in the financial industry - and just ONE idea we swiped from the IM world has TRIPLED (or more) our conversions across the board - which is worth many, many, many millions to us.

SO... I want to get on ALL the best marketer's lists (in any niche), to make sure I'm finding out about any new conversion breakthroughs nice and early.

Obviously, this is something everyone here should do too.

With that in mind, let's have a team effort here in the copywriting forum and put together "The Biggest Most Bad-Ass List of Awesome Marketing Lists!"

I'll kick us off...

P.S. Does anyone know how to turn off the keyword links, so I can just have the URLs? Would be easier to organize that way I think.

P.P.S. Oh yeah, also these aren't all squeeze pages. So you might have to search for an opt-in form if you want to get on a list (which should be easy to do, you would hope).

    You can add Jim Straw's Business Lyceum to that list.
    => Real Business Opportunities, Income Opportunities & Home Based Businesses

    There's a whole decade of valuable marketing/business info in there.

      Colm
      Jim Straw is an old-school guru all right.

      Except he wasn't just in biz-op alone.

      All his biz guides were derived from his 55 years of experience in
      diverse fields ranging from being a high-powered dealer...to banker...
      to gold miner ...to seller of a wide range of merchandise.

      He was making his fortune multiple times over before any
      of the modern day Internet guru were even born! Imagine that!

      And that's before the Internet was even invented!

      Jim Straw is a guy that has truly been there and done that.

      It's a real privilege to be his friend.

      And I count him as a friend and mentor too.

      Best,
      Jag

      Rich Schefren is sending all his traffic through one sqeeze page now.

      He gets people to sign up to a webinar, with 2 date choices.

      Since going with this method it has made the business more profitable and simpler to control the individual parts to be tracked and improved.

      They work with Jay Abraham, Brian Tracy and most of the big name online gurus.

    Thanks again Ewen.

    I have Marketing Experiments, didn't know they were the same company as Sherpa though.

    Totally forgot about Bencivenga. Real shame he's retired. My boss chanced his arm and contacted him a while ago, still no response... bringing him up reminds me, I aught to add Halbert, Carlton and that Vin Montello fellow too.

    I added Schefren's Strategic Profits site as these "invitation" links tend to go dead after a while.

    Mike,

    I used to work for Eric Ruth (and his partner Sean Greeley). In-house for a whole year. Haha! Good catch! I think they're 131 on the Inc 500 this year. From 07 - 09 they grew NPE 2000%! Total bad-asses.

    Did your Oxford package go out yet?

    I think we're still looking for folk - send me a PM if you want the details - it's for an in-house position but you might be able to convince them to give you freelance work...

    Although, if you're on contract with Oxford then it'll be a no go I imagine.

      Wow, small world!

      I discovered Eric in the early 2000's when I still owned my massage therapy center. I was looking outside my industry for killer marketing tactics that I could use to grab even more market share.

    Thank you sir.

    Ewen,

    I think we have the Doc covered with Healthy Directions, but I added him just in case.

    BREAKING NEWS! Dating category now added.

    I think we're up to about 50, if we double that I reckon we can call it a job well done.

    Who are we missing? Who's using breakthrough marketing we can learn from, but is not on the list?

    How on earth do you keep track of all of these?

    Like an email address for each list or niche? This is quality ... I work in the health and fitness industry and so much of the IM world helps in both our online and offline efforts.

    Most of it is just business 101 but things like upsells, customer value and memberships sites) are more obvious from IM that offline. Maybe it's just because I've had no formal marketing training and there's so much available in the IM niche without the jargon that comes with old skool marketing books and courses.

    Good call on Abraham, Mike. I added Ed O'Keefe who is another Kennedy disciple working in the "dentist" niche.

    How on earth do you keep track of all of these?
    Al, the plan is to set-up a gmail account and start signing up. Between myself and my colleagues we should be able to cover the good stuff. I have something similar right now, which I just do myself, but I just open the emails that catch my eye.

    A lot of these guys promote some of the same products (reminds me of PLF, Jeff Walker) too. So if there's a breakthrough product released it'll be hard to miss.

    Thanks Brian!

      Colm
      Filsaime has announced a while ago he is concentrating on software.
      Just came out of the woodwork to do a launch with an Englishman for affiliate marketing.

      John Reece says he isn't really interested in teaching as his first love is working on his own projects with his team in the Phillipines. Said he has sold up all his assets and is travelling the world with one suitcase.

      Frank Kern says he is concentating on building a business consulting with offline businesses to bring them online. Plans to build big to sell for BIG pay day.

      Heard on the grapevine Jeff Walker is doing a launch later on this month.

      All the best,

      I have been subscribed since 2001 to Michael Campbell newsletter. He is an Internet Marketer that's following his own ideas but has always great hints about services and infoproducts. He is pretty strong on natural traffic and overall an interesting read.

      Internet Marketing Secrets by Michael Campbell

      I have been surprised not to find two "established" Internet Marketers in the list: Jeremy Shoemaker and Marlon Sanders.

      Shoemaker site and newsletter is full of ideas in all areas of Internet Marketing, definitely worth checking. He has his own twist on many IM topics.

      Shoemoney - Skills to Pay the Bills

      Marlon Sanders is "old school Internet Marketing" if such a thing exist. The guy knows his trade and he sends lots of little gems about what works for him. Currently he is also very active in finding rather unknown Internet Marketers with great infoproducts at a budget.

      Marlon Sanders' Main Mailing List

    I've watched this guy go from small product launches of his own, to super-affiliate, to product launch tycoon in the niche of Real Estate Investing and education over the span of 2 years. REI is evidently a big niche in itself:

    PrestonEly.com

    Preston is a bit over the top but he does it in such a way that his flashy antics convert like crazy and turn him into a marketing mastermind. He commands attention.

    Also another HUGE player in that niche is Than Merrill and FortuneBuilders:

    Fortunebuilders.com

    I believe their info marketing company has grown from RE investing to other various niches as well, last I heard they were doing $12+ million a year (as of last November). I'm on his affiliate list, and apparently they've broken that mark already this year. Very impressive group of characters.

    Check 'em both out! I've learned invaluable info from both resources!
