    Yes this was helpful. I’m a newbie and need all the help I can get. Thanks

  10. Thanks for blog #99! I look forward to 100 and the new blog name.
    I attended your conference on Ft. Myers Beach yesterday 2/23/12. I am a newbee to affiliate marketing, I’ve downloaded your book and the other free stuff and the Secret 16.

    I am serious about making this work and will start from scratch and follow your lead. I have never made one red cent online, but believe from what I saw yesterday and blog #99, that my mistakes were not understanding where to begin. Thank you and I will be in training from today forward.

  11. Susan Acree says:

    Thanks, Anthony,
    I just talked to a coach this morning…have been frustrated that I haven’t had even 1 action on the 6 or 7 Campaigns I have tried…I’ll keep trying, but need a little success to get better…

    BTW…I think you meant Too Much… Old teacher, can’t help myself ;)

  35. Catherine Dade says:

    Very helpful, Anthony!

  36. Thanks Anthony, This really helped me to know to not get too crazy and know what to start with. I’ve had a hard time even getting going so this will help.

  37. Dawn Lovitt says:

    Thank you your blog was a lot of help I really appreciate constructive critrsism as you know I need training. Dawn

  38. That was a great help. I don’t why I thought that if I put a lot of campaigns out that I was doing it right. But now that you’ve explain how it shold be done I’m going to change somethings that I have been doing. Also can you explain how to test your campaigns in your weekly blog. I don’t understand what you mean by test. Right now I’m doing everything on Classifiedadsforfree.com and I get hits but they still won’t buy. I know I’m catching on but I just need to know a few other things before I can start getting people to leave me their email address.

  39. Anthony, this blog helped because it is easier to go in every direction and too many. Simplicity and one thing at a time (well maybe five as you said) and master that one thing. I get calls all the time to get into something else and my response is always the same – I am working on a program right now that I want to finish and complete so I am making an amount of money I think I should on the start and then I will look at other things to add. I saw a video today that totally has the right profile to fit into this program but, I have to get my site and program to a level of making sales first then I will for sure add this other program. Thanks for all your training and positive thinking because that relates into success for me.

  40. Beverly Klahn says:

    Good information. Looking forward to next week.

  41. Dawn Lovitt says:

    My favorite quote is There are no regrets in life worth regretting except for the chances we did not take out of fear.

  42. Dave Landis says:

    Anthony, thank you for this info about affiliates. You could spend alot of time here because that is an area that has many people stumbling. I certainly do not know how to run an affiliate campaign… details on how to word the ads to be effective would help me to do better.

  43. Cheryl says:

    Hi Anthony,

    Thank you! You can get too overwhelmed if you do too much… One or Two at a time you can stay focused and it’s easy to get lost!

    Thank you for validating my feelings about this!


  44. Maurice says:

    Good Evening Anthony, I want to thank you for this blog and the very useful information in it. I seem to be stuck in one place with my wheels spinning. I would like to know how to get an affiliate website set up. This is my sticking point. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and again, thank you for sharing this info.

    Maurice Tuck

  45. Shirley York says:

    Thank you so much for another one of your golden nuggets.To someone like me that is just getting started they are much appreciated. Thanks again.

  46. Yes Anthony I agree with what Allyson had to say. This was very helpful in knowing not to get to much going at one time. A doer of much but a master of nothing! Keep up the great work at blogging for us, we really appreciated it!

  47. Hey Anthony – It actually gave me an idea. I don’t run a bunch of campaigns because I don’t even know where to start with that, but it did crystalize my thinking about a question I should be asking. Thanks for your wonderful efforts we all so appreciate you!

  53. Scotty says:

    Thanks Anthony. It was helpful. Keep up the good work. I really like the white board teaching technique.

  54. johnnie webster says:

    when will i recive my infornatiom email

  55. Thanks for this information. I need help in getting started with this business, and especialy with email marketing, ie: creating a email list, send, Profit.

  56. Rich Bergold says:

    Thanks for the advice. When you say to select your 5 offers, do you pick 5 from one category (i.e., weight loss, dating) and then further focus on just one type of media to promote on (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Email) or can you mix up your 5 offers / campaigns with simultanoeous promotions on Facebook, Twitter, Email etc?

  57. vic says:

    Hi anthony good information.

  58. daniel says:

    I would like to see you teach how to advertise your site for free.
    via face book twiter etc. this blog does not help me I was iold by an aff.provider the more you have the better the chances to get a sale.

  59. Phillip says:

    Anthony, Thanks! I have probably been too conservative with only 1 or 2 campaigns at a time. This helps to know from your own experience and not from a text book (except if you have written it.)

  60. Ruth Sokel says:

    This blog has helped me. Thank you

  61. Michael A Johnston says:

    Yes, this helps a lot. I now have a better focus. thank you.

  65. Carol says:

    This is helpful. I am working on a single campaign now and thought to start that would be sufficient. Now I know otherwise. Thanks. See you next week for #100

  66. Ella Dikeman says:

    yes this did help me, I am working on one affliliate, So that I can get really good at it. and to understand what I have to learn, I never thought about more than 50 at a time.
    now I think I will try another affiliate.
    and work on my web site, again thanks for the tid bit of info.
    as always you do give good advice,

  67. dwana says:

    yes this did help because I was just trying 1 at a time

  68. Ron says:

    Good point, Anthony. I have spread myself out too thin and don’t get enough traffic to any of the sites. I’m going to stop starting new campaigns and concentrate on 4 or 5 of the most promising ones now. Thanks for the tip.

  69. Elizabeth says:

    Great blog. Very good information! Thank you very much for your dedication and help!

  77. Chuck2 says:

    Newbie here – I liked your “missing piece of the puzzle” analogy. I have just dumped the IM puzzle out of the box. This Blog and all others are giving a more and more complete picture. Keep’em coming.

  78. Tom says:

    Thanks Anthony! Another great tip and the “dart” analogy is awesome. Keep up the blog training.

  79. Don Thomas says:

  82. Lynn says:

    I have only been learning about what this is all about and I have not started anything yet but your blogs are very informative. thanks

  83. Lydia says:

    This blog helped me, I have been all over the place, rather than focusing on mastering, testing, and creating campaigns that work. I have made a list of items that I will be researching to link up with as an affiliate. I also like that your blogs are short and to the point so that I can get busy. Thank you Anthony.

    Enjoy your weekly blogs. Today I attended Day 1 of a 3 Day workshop. Fantastic! I suggest The name for the Weekly Bog to be “Stepping Stone to Success”

  86. Tom Cory says:

    Really like this blog. You’ve motivated us to work harder on the campaigns we have instead of creating new.

  87. Martie Rader says:

    Anthony; am just choosing a niche but hopefully I will soon have a product out there to test. Thanks for the info and the encouragement.

    Yes this blog did help me even though I have yet to start implimenting your course.

  89. caver says:

    This helped me as I was wondering how many different products to push at once.

  90. Aaron Thomas says:

    It makes a lot of sense

  91. John Haynes says:

    The black and red on the whiteboard work very well! I have been thinking about starting to expand as soon as I get a few more bucks – I’m normally a one thing at a time, methodical type of person. I had a feeling that I needed to do some ‘experimenting’ though – and your blog definitely confirmed it for me! Thanks for all you do, Anthony! Keep up the great work! :)

  92. Joyce Hubble says:

    Just started your 3-day introductory class today. Loads of information. Really excited to begin your program. Yes, the blog was helpful. The $$$$$$$ are tempting; but, we must remember, sometimes, less is more.

  93. jose cordero says:

    this was very helpfull cuz I did one canpane got no hits and I stop cuz I thought it was a wast of $$$$ I AM GOING TO GET BACK AT IT

  94. Nelson aguilar says:

    woaaaoow makes sense……just like your brother said. by the way i went to your brother class and he said exactly the same thing . i haven’t make my first dollar yet. but i can feel it in my hands….. im still waiting to get approve with wolfstormmidia… cant wait till i start testing and writting ads. sounds like a proces but verry powerful. its ok ,you know that in the end it’s going to pay off then you pad yourself in the back……..thaks anthony for for putting such good ifo out there.

  95. Hi Anthony, great blog this week. It is direct and to the point. I look forward to blog #100. I am a new member and comming along quite well. So far I have succesfully brianstormed my first domain name, it was available and my mentor commended me for my ability to create domain names on my own without any other affiliates examples.I am going to give my best effort and move on to the next step with wordpress, bluehost, and go daddy. I hope to meet you in peson one day when you visit Los Angeles in the future.
