Science of Getting Rich Review

You may have seen the publicity about the Science of Getting Rich.

It’s a book from the early 1900’s by a man called Wallace D Wattles.

Bob Proctor has recently revamped his audio course about the book, you can find out more details about what he’s done at this link.

I bought the course a number of years ago, when it was published by Nightingale Conant (and when it didn’t cost almost $2,000!). I also went to a weekend seminar based on Bob Proctor’s interpretation of the book.

The ideas in Science of Getting Rich are timeless. The thought processes involved are similar to those expressed later by Napoleon Hill in “Think and Grow Rich”. Anything that you strongly and vividly imagine for long enough will manifest itself. The same ideas are expressed in the “Secret” that’s also popular at the moment.

Because of when it was written, the language in Science of Getting Rich is archaic. Which is where Bob Proctor’s help comes in – he takes you through the book and helps interpret the ideas in modern day English. There are also a number of exercises that come with the program, asking questions based on your reading of the book and how it has changed your thought processes.

Is it worth spending almost $2,000 on an interpretation of a book you can get for free here? That depends on how you learn. If you are happy reading a book and working out what to do with the information, then the answer should be obvious.

If you need the structure of a course, Bob Proctor’s interpretation is exceptional. Follow it through and you’ll see the changes in your life.

If, on the other hand, almost $2,000 is a stretch at the moment then I’d strongly suggest that you download your copy of Science of Getting Rich here. Read the book. Then if, like me, you find it’s a struggle to interpret but you realize that the underlying ideas are excellent, check out the “set your own price” tutorial that’s linked inside the book.

That’s certainly the route I’d take today if I came across Science of Getting Rich for the first time.
The ideas in Science of Getting Rich are powerful ones. You can use them to transform your life. The language used is strange to our modern eyes, no question about that. If you need help interpreting sentences like “No thought of form can be impressed upon Original Substance without causing the creation of the form.” then some kind of study program to go alongside the book will be priceless.

Of course, the option to get the book together with the added value from Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield and Dr Beckfield is the deluxe option. If you’re truly serious about becoming rich and are motivated enough to follow through with the ideas, then Bob Proctor’s version of Science of Getting Rich is highly recommended.

Whichever route you take, follow through. That’s where most of us don’t quite succeed. We start off with the best intentions and then life gets in the way.

Whichever method you choose to get hold of Science of Getting Rich, make sure you actually read it and use the ideas and methods to transform your life.

Viral Sneakiness Review

You’ve probably heard about viral marketing: you produce something that spreads around the internet so fast, it’s like a virus.

You may even have produced a viral “something”. Articles are a good example of viral marketing. So are videos on places like YouTube. But they don’t always spread as fast as you’d like.

Viral Sneakiness is an ebook that shows you how to create a viral report. Nothing too heavy – they suggest that it should be around 10 pages, which if you write at a couple of pages an hour will take you about 5 hours to write. Plus research time on top of that.

All in all, you can follow the techniques shown and have your first free viral report live and getting downloads in a few days. Maybe less – my first viral report following this method took me just over a day to produce, start to finish.

The book is an easy read and totally practical. It teaches you how to research your topic so that the report you write will be above average, even if you knew nothing about the topic before you started. Quality is important. If your report is rubbish, you won’t get any sales from it. And sales are the whole point of giving your report away for free.

Viral Sneakiness shows you how to weave affiliate links into your free report without them appearing spammy. They liken it to product placement in movies and that’s a good analogy.

They also give you a bunch of places to submit your finished report (like any list of this sort, not all these links are still live, but enough of them are) and other ideas for promoting your free report.

The promotion of my first report took less than an hour. I got my first download for it within a day. That’s pretty fast.

Once created and “promoted” like this, your report will gradually work its way round the internet. If you follow the advice in Viral Sneakiness, it should end up in free ebook collections and may well be given away on websites.

Overall, I think that Viral Sneakiness is one of the easiest ideas I’ve come across in a long time. The most difficult bit is writing the content but 10 pages or so really isn’t that hard and could be outsourced if you wanted to.

They miss out a couple of things that I’d include but to find out my thoughts on that, drop me an email here (this is an autoresponder email, so you’ll need to reply to the confirmation message that gets sent back to you).

Overall, so long as you’re prepared to actually do something (!), I recommend Viral Sneakiness.

Building An Ebook Empire Review

Building an Ebook Empire is a book by a writer called Tiffany Dow.

Until recently, Tiffany has been a ghost writer for many internet gurus. Until she decided that there was more money available by not being a writer who got paid once.

The book is no-nonsense and full of lots of tips and tricks. It doesn’t concentrate too much on how to write – the bonus book takes care of that. But then (relatively speaking) writing the product is the easy part. Especially if you hire in a ghost writer.

The biggest challenge with ebooks is promoting them. Go to Clickbank or eBay and you’ll see how many ebooks are in the market.

Tiffany covers promotion of your ebook, as well as the original keyword selection, in depth. Get either of these wrong and you’ve pretty much wasted your time. Get them right and you’ve got commissions flowing to you.

You could apply the tips and tricks in Building an Ebook Empire to your own work or to one of the many private label ebooks out there. Tiffany goes through the sales letter in depth – applying this to a PLR ebook could easily be the difference between making next to zero sales and selling a steady stream.

All in all, this is a good ebook. It’s practical, informative and, given Tiffany’s background, very close to having a private audience with some of the better known internet gurus as well.

Lazy Git Marketing Review

Lazy Git marketing – what is it? OK, if you’re not from the UK then before you read on, you might want to know what “lazy git” means. Essentially it’s someone who does as little effort as possible for the (usually monetary) return they get back.

In this case, we’re talking about setting up basic web sites quickly and making money out of them whether or not they get traffic.

Lazy git marketingWhich sounds too good to be true. After all, surely a site needs traffic before it can use methods like Adsense to earn money from visitors?

Not if you follow the methods described in this report…

Lazy Git Marketing is simple. You could set up a site from scratch using one of several different methods shown in about an hour.

But it’s not overnight riches. Once you’ve set the site up, you need to leave it alone. In much the same way as you wouldn’t expect a bottle of wine to be ready to drink the moment the grapes had been pressed.

That’s fine. It’s less than $10 a year to register a domain, so it’s unlikely to break the bank if you have to hold onto it for a few months until it can earn you money. Heck, if you’re like me, you’ve probably got several domains that have been gathering digital dust for longer than you’d care to admit, so having a few domains with content that stand to make you cash in the not too distant future is a bonus anyway.

If you’re impatient, the report will give you a couple of ways of getting sites that will start earning you money sooner. Or you may already have some domains lurking in your portfolio that this method could be applied to.

Lazy Git Marketing comes with a series of videos that explain each of the steps visually, which I found to be a help in a couple of instances.

There’s also a forum which is reasonably active and the author of the report responds quickly and helpfully to questions.

Check out Lazy Git Marketing. It makes a pleasant change from the “earn a fortune in the next 24 hours” kind of reports. This method is real world and is likely to remain so for some time to come.

Absolute Covers Review

I’ve used various different sources for ebook covers.

If I’m looking for a quick cover, then I used to use Rentacoder but they’ve since been taken over by Freelancer and I no longer use them. I’ve often had quite good ebook covers turned round in a few hours.

But if I’m looking for something that’s higher quality, then it’s time to use a full time graphic designer.

The last few ebook cover graphics I’ve had designed have been by Absolute Covers.

Check my Healthy Eating for Kids site to see the quality that’s delivered.
Absolute Covers aren’t the cheapest on the market. But the quality is high and the turnaround times are fast.

You get a choice of what’s included in your ebook cover package. This can be as simple as just the cover graphic or it can be more complicated, so you can go for a website header graphic, footer graphic, order button, etc.

Absolute Covers require you to set up an account before you can place an order, but once you’ve done that it’s plain sailing.

Choose the cover style – you can see on the Healthy Eating for Kids site I chose one that looks like a book. But there are plenty of other styles to choose from, including ones that look as though they’ve been ring bound and so on. If your product is software or audio, they also do CD and DVD covers with the CD or DVD poking out of the box if you want.

Pricing is quite reasonable and the interactive pricing system means that you will know what effect your various design decisions will have on the price before you commit to ordering.

Check out Absolute Covers now. Your site will look better for it.

WordPress Anti Spam

Just a brief post to say that I’ve added an extra thing for my comments as I was getting fed up with the amount of spam comments.

I’ve already installed Akismet but that still means having to go through the comments and check that a real one hasn’t been trapped.

Peter’s Custom Anti Spam Image Plugin for WordPress works a treat. It’s easy to install and there’s an extra “captcha” word to type in that a real human will have no problem with. You can add your own words to the list, just being careful to make sure that they’re not too long (no more than 6 or 7 letters).

The only thing missing is an audio equivalent so that visually impaired people can get the word spelled out for them. I’ll be on the lookout for that.

If you’re running a WordPress blog, this is a “must have” plugin. Get it for free from here.
