Secret Rolodex of Internet Marketing Superstars

11 replies
We get a lot of questions from people that are new, about who they should follow, what programs are good, whose training we can trust, etc.

I thought it may be a good idea and helpful to have a big list of them here. Answer these questions, if you don't mind:

1. Whose emails do you read almost every time they come?
2. Whose products do you buy almost every time there is a new offer?
3. What program/training has helped you the most?

And tell us why you have those answers if you have time.

Let's keep it clean and try to be helpful. Don't turn this into a spam fest - affiliate links or links to your own sites or products will be deleted.

Thanks.Mark

    I'll go first.

    1. Whose emails do you read almost every time they come?

    There are several: Terry Dean, Ryan Deiss, Warrior Forum, Jimmy D. Brown, Sean Mize, Paul Myers, Craig Ballantyne, AWAI, Jeff Bullas, Yaro Starak, Dennis Becker, Robert Plank, Robert Andrew (Discrat). Neil Patel, Kim Roach

    2. Whose products do you buy almost every time there is a new offer?

    I don't buy everything but I buy most things that Jimmy Brown and Sean Mize put out and consider everything Ryan Deiss comes out with. I also used to buy most everything that Allen Says, the previous owner of this forum, published but he's not active anymore.

    3. What program/training has helped you the most?

    The best education I've gotten over the years is through this very forum. There is some real gold hidden here.

    As far as programs, I'd have to say Jimmy Brown's stuff has probably helped the most just because I've been a consistent customer for many years . Digital Marketer Lab is a goldmine of everything you've ever wanted to know about marketing.

    I'll have to check out Jimmy Brown.
    I used to read a lot of Ben Settle but it became almost to predictable because it was so off the wall. Like he was trying too hard to be bizarre

    Paul Myers has always been a favorite and getting his emails is something I look forward to.

    Used to buy a lot of Paul Nicholls and Eric Louviere stuff

    1. Whose emails do you read almost every time they come?
    I'm on Dave Nicholson's affiliate list. He sends out notifications of new launches of his own and partners. I've made some good money from some of his recommendations.

    2. Whose products do you buy almost every time there is a new offer?
    No one's.

    3. What program/training has helped you the most?
    Years ago I bought Steve Weber's "Adsense Connection." It taught so much more than Adsense!

    I also did considerable studying on https://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/ and just recently went through Yaro's updated "Blog Mastermind" freebies.

    Paul Myers, been reading TalkBiz for years. Mix of good, in-depth information and product recommendations with solid, in-depth reviews.

    Right now, I'm reading a lot of AWAI's stuff, as I may get back into freelancing and consulting on a limited basis.

    Lots of others, depending on the subject line. If it's something I'm interested in, I'll read; if it's a 'warning' about a JV launch, I'll delete (I'm probably already on the developer's list already).

    Nobody.

    Been doing this so long, it's hard to say. Lots of people over the years, and some of the best lessons come up again and again. After almost two decades, they start blending together.

    Some of the best free training comes from the annual launches for Jeff Walker's PLF program, Ryan Deiss's Invisible Sales Machine and Ryan Levesque's ASK Method.

    1. Whose emails do you read almost every time they come?

    Shane Melaugh, Justin Brooke, Neil Patel, AuthorityHacker.com, and ActiveGrowth.com

    Otherwise in general I am forming a habit to ignore emails from all top IM Marketers (except the one I listed above). I do not want to be pitched for sales offer everyday.

    The better way I believe is - I figured out what things my does need. The Tools, the Info. And I proactively go for them and I just relax.

    2. Whose products do you buy almost every time there is a new offer?

    I am against impulsive buying. I only buy the tools or resources that I have planned earlier. No impulse buying, at all.


    3. What program/training has helped you the most?

    ActiveGrowth.com Podcast. Shane Melaugh's advice is really a gem. Very counter-intuitive and helps me build a long-term business. It changed my perspective on my business. I highly recommend it.

    Justin Brooke (look for his articles at Medium.com and his daily emails).

    Thanks for the feedback.

    To be honest, I probably have too many on my "read every time" list. What I included above doesn't include people from outside this industry that I read. I love to read - what can I say. And, in fact, it doesn't include everybody I read every time. I forgot Jeff Walker, Rebekah Radice, and a couple others.

    But, I have been starting to apply the 80/20 rule to a lot of areas of life.

    If I had to pick 4 emails to read and 4 only (in the internet marketing space), my list would be:

    Ryan Deiss: Great general marketing training
    AWAI: Lots of information about copywriting, sales, persuasion
    Paul Myers: Marketing, privacy/security, common sense topics
    Neil Patel: I know some folks here don't think he's all that but I enjoy and use his advice

    I originally was going to pick 5 and 5 only but there were a lot of people bunched up at #5 so I changed it to 4.

    This is a great thread! I'll answer with mine:

    1. Whose emails do you read almost every time they come?

    Neville Medhora - amazing copywriter
    Ben Settle - Email Marketing
    Sendlane - Email Marketing and optimisation
    Bryce York - happens to also be a friend of mine, but great analytic insights.

    These are the ones that come immediately to mind. Non-email, I'd say Dennis Yu from BlitzMetrics has some powerful teachings with Digital Marketing via his Facebook.

    2. Whose products do you buy almost every time there is a new offer?

    This is a hard question for me, I buy ALOT and play around with a whole heap of apps. I think the most significant one for me was SkyRanker by the PressCable / Chris Munch team. >_>

    3. What program/training has helped you the most?

    I'm a strong believer in self educating essentials, Codecademy has definitely helped me with laying down some of the foundation. As far as a program is concerned.. it's not really a program but a complete overhaul - BlitzMetrics. Anything to do with online advertising and building a digital authority.

    Back in the day, my Idol was George M Brown. He's one of the main reasons why I am on the path that I'm on today. I was sure to read every single email that I received when I was on his list. I was fully engaged because the content he provided was just extremely pleasant.
