I can’t help but feel that most Internet Marketers are actually only capable of selling IM related stuff to their list of IM interested prospects. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with selling stuff that people will actually want to buy and benefit from but being an IM-person myself I can’t help but miss more examples of people making money doing other things than promoting IM related products.
Every single day you can read about this and that Guru making millions on their latest IM ebook, podcast, video, course, DVD collection, membership site etc. But where are the stories about the people that have taken these products and used them to create fortunes in industries that is NOT related to IM?
This is one of the reasons that I am such a fan of the guys behind StomperNet. Not only do they practice what they teach they are also doing this in markets and niches that has absolutely nothing to do with SEO and IM. Brad Fallon sells Wedding Favors with revenues of tens of millions a year and one of the other guys (can’t remember his name) sells Swords and Tapestry (two different sites obviously).
It is so extremely refreshing to read about people that it teaching from what they have learnt by doing it in non IM businesses. If their monthly fee wasn’t at the level it is I would instantly become a member of their StomperNet community.
Before anybody ads it as a comment I know that these guys are not the only ones doing these things. A lot of the Gurus have sites selling stuff in the Fitness & Wellness industry; have sites on Weight Loss and different types of supplement. But if you ask me I still haven’t found anything that can beat “Tapestry” and “Wedding Favors”.
Let’s go make money in other niches,
