Just kidding.

Those of you that know me know enough to carefully peruse what I have to say - otherwise, you'll miss some really good zingers! However, you shouldn't have to worry about me telling you a bunch of crap, disguised as Eternal Wisdom or Absolute Truth. If I descend into such stuff, feel free to sling brickbats.

After hanging around here for nearly two years, many things in my life have changed. My original goals of becoming self-employed and working from home have been realized. Through ghostwriting for people in the "make money online" niche, I've learned a ton about making money online.

Sadly, I've also learned that most of you won't reach your goals - because you NEVER SET THEM in the first place. Of the small percentage that did, few of you will hit the income levels you want to achieve.

That's because you failed to examine the wallets and purses of your buyers. You may know the profile of your Ideal Buyer, but you didn't think to look at how much money that idealized person has to spend.

Market research is the very first step you need to take before you mount a sales campaign. So, why don't more of you consider getting people with a lot of money as your target market? It's because you didn't think about it that way.

Think about it that way! Grab the attached short bonus report that I put together last year on targeting the wealthiest buyers. No opt in, no recurring payments, no aff links - just my take on dealing with customers who have lots of money and tend not to be serial refunders.

What would that be worth to you?

Sincerely,


Vince Runza

            Congrats on reaching 3,000 posts, and thanks for using the milestone to make such an important point.

            One of the businesses I was involved with in the past was brilliant - genius product, slick marketing, excellent technology behind it. The only problem was the founder had a vision of eliminating poverty, and targeted his product at people with no money and high debts. Turned out to be a deadly combination, at least commercially...

            Keep on going, Vince, you're one of the folks I look forward to reading...

    Hey, thanks so much for the report.

    Will read it later.

    I recently set my own initial financial goal, based on exactly what we need to live, including a decent debt repayment plan. I gotta say, it really helped me to focus in on what I am doing.

    Just got to finalise the steps I need to take in order to reach said goal...

    Vince, I have your ebook, but misplaced it on my computer. It was an excellent read. I will read it again.

    I have been reminding myself more so lately - It takes the same amount of time and effort to target and sell to the people who have money as those who don't have it or won't spend it.

    'The world is divided up into two groups...' Yup, I laughed too. The report was no laughing matter, though, and very much deserves to be taken seriously. It's clearly written by someone who understands either side of 'broke', and knows the way to wealthy. I'd urge anyone who hasn't done so yet to download it and to give it a read, and then I'd urge them to read it again.

    Thank you for giving me urges, Vince. It's been a while
