A few months ago I heard of a pretty exciting membership site called Wealthy Affiliate University(WA). Now, I have had the experience of searching through hundreds of products and packages to ensure that my money was well spent. Some were great while others were just really disappointing. I kept hearing so many positives about WA so I ended up joining last week. And what a decision that was! This Article is a Review of Wealthy Affiliate University from the perspective of not only a member but someone new to the affiliate marketing scene.So what is Wealthy Affiliate All about?Well, as it’s name implies WA is designed to help would-be affiliate marketers make money and yes… become wealthy. Wealthy Affiliate provides marketing resources, advertising techniques, and coaching by two very successful Internet marketers make in a month more than an average person does in a year.Whats good about WA is that it doesn’t require you to have a website in order to make money. This was great for me as it allowed me to get started, use the tools and resources, and setup a profitable campaign. So you can start without ever doing any website building and without needing any type of web hosting. They do this by offering optimized landing pages that you can send traffic to.Alright this is what you get when you join: A Comprehensive training section of Learning Resources. This section is broken down into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced sub-categories. Every section has an assortment of tutorials, write up, and videos that cover topics specifically chosen to help you progress. One of my favorite sections is the The Research Center. It has some very useful tools for keyword research, and some other ingenious devices. There are allot of quality tools here, you probably could find them else where, but most likely it’ll cost you.Whats the Biggest Gain in Wealthy Affiliate? The support and community! With Wealthy Affiliate you get all assistance you need. The partners will even personally review your campaign to ensure that you’re successful. Now the forum should be considered the most important part of this site. It is extremely active, with the partners and other senior members helping out the newbies. I’ve personally reviewed some topics and the information there is astonishing. For obvious reason I can’t discuss them here; however, I can tell you though, that you will get some of the best training available on-line.So how much does all of this cost? As of this writing (March 2008), the monthly fee is a mere $29.99 per month. That fee includes all of the tools mentioned above; plus all the assistance in the forum. You’ll be given keyword lists for quite a few niches along with recommend products to promote using those lists. I fully recommend this site whether you’re new to the scene or a seasoned pro marketer. There’s always more to learn and being a member of an active forum is a great way to keep up with what’s new in the industry.All in all, Wealthy Affiliate University appears to be a robust environment for learning and and becoming successful in Internet marketing. You undoubtedly get value when you consider whats given for the price, the features, tools, resources, training materials, and support whenever you need it.
Today we’re going to take a look at Paul Barrs’ Maximum Success University website.
Name: Maximum Success University
Author: Paul Barrs
Type of product: Membership website with 29 full Internet Marketing courses
When you get to the home page of Paul’s website, you’ll see that he promises the ‘complete’ answer to the question of how to make money online. And to be honest, he’s one of the very few who can deliver on a big promise like that.Let’s take just one of the courses on the site: Affiliate Marketing Mastery.As a full member of the site, I can access all the products in the members area, and this is one which grabbed my attention, because I’ve made most of my money “offline”, in mail order, writing sales copy, etc. Internet marketing is an area I’m looking to improve on, I do have a number of websites but having so much focus “offline”, my online success has always been limited. So I listen to the course, it’s 6 main audios, each 15 mins or less, (no filler or sales pitches here – just pure content), plus a bonus 40 minute audio, and almost straight away, I pick up a strategy which I haven’t been doing, namely, capturing the email addresses of my visitors, for follow-up marketing. Believe me, I set to work immediately implementing Paul’s advice and I am expecting some good results.So just that one product delivers on the promises Paul is making. And even though I’m still going through all that material, I can see that Paul has compiled a complete business model for anyone from the beginning marketer, to the experienced professional.
Investment: Paul is currently running a pre-launch offer called the “Undergraduate Diploma” which gets you 5 of the 29 products for free, just to see if you like them. There is also a paid monthly option, the price is yet to be revealed, but it will give you unlimited access to all 29 courses, plus all of the brand new products Paul has planned for the site.
Something I found immediately was that this site is very easy to use, even if you can barely turn on a computer without the manual. When you get inside the exclusive member’s area, you’ll see 5 introductory videos to guide you through the site, all it’s products, and how to get started on planning your internet business. And the material is laid out by Paul in a seriously easy-to-understand manner. He speaks clearly in both the audio and video components, and writes clearly in the written manuals. He has a way of presenting new ideas in a way that anybody can understand.You can get results quickly from these programs, depending on where you are right now. If you’re already doing business and you’re joining this site to get that extra edge over the competition, you’ll uncover new strategies and viewpoints to improve what you’re doing.And if you’re just starting out, and you want to create some extra income online like so many people you’ve heard about, or if you want to start any kind of home based business, you’ll find some great ways to start making some money, even if it’s small amounts at first, within weeks. Of course neither I nor Paul can promise or guarantee results for you, it’s up to you to get to work and do something. I’m sure you aren’t about to fall for the old ‘magic pill’ trick so many want to-be “gurus” will try and pitch to you. However, many people do experience results very quickly, simply due to the ‘to-the-point’ nature of these products, and the cutting edge strategies held within.Of course it’s best to see for yourself, rather than reading some website or me asking you to take my word for it. Besides the free pre-launch offer Paul’s running, I’ve done a screen recording to literally show you what’s inside the member’s area, and how easy it’s going to be to use.
Summary: Paul’s gotten together all his best material, his extensive expensive experience from the last decade or so of successful internet marketing, and he’s put it all into this member’s area for you to benefit from.
On the downside, it’s a monthly membership, rather than a once-off payment, (unless you go with the free membership option), so you’ll have to stay “plugged in” to keep enjoying the products, and the courses Paul’s got in the works to add later. (He’s got a list of more than 35 products with titles like “Social Marketing Magic”, “How To Build Your Own Software Empire”, and “Video Marketing Vengeance”, listed on the site so you can see what’s coming..)Another problem might be the sheer mass of information here – with 29 full courses, it’s quite a lot to take in, and it can seem overwhelming. Which courses to do? What to listen to? What to watch? The old joke about eating an elephant “one bite at a time”, is good advice here. This is why Paul has created the 5 introductory videos, to lay out a path for you to follow, step by step. To be completely honest though, this is definitely one of the best and most comprehensive products available today. I know, there are thousands, if not millions, of “make-money-on-the-internet” type products out there, and as you may have noticed, most aren’t worth your time at all.Paul Barrs’ Maximum Success University, however, is a compilation of the strategies and results of a guy who has been making money online for years, and most importantly, is still making money online. And while most products will show you just one area of Internet Marketing, (thus requiring you to buy several different products to get the whole picture…) Paul has made absolutely sure that you will never suffer from a lack of information again, on just about any area you can think of.With Maximum Success University, you may never have to buy another marketing product again in your life!

From the start Marla A. Martin’s book, “The Universes”, takes off on an adventure through wormholes of hyperspace. When reading this, I was at first startled given my sci-fi curiosity of what new physics and projected scientific advancements might have taken place with mankind to make a voyage such as this possible. Realizing that no minutia of detail is given, it became apparent to me Martin’s here to provide a story about the people and not the technology. So accepting this premise I relaxed and read the book, not looking to critically burst bubbles of technical inconsistencies, but to totally enjoy the adventures of the well developed characters and just going along with the scientific assumptions.So off to new worlds inhabited by strange humanoid types possessing various technological achievements and alien powers in an effort to find a suitable planet to relocate the population of Earth I went. A nostalgic sci-fi adventure indeed, reminiscent of early Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, mixed with a bunch of Louis L’Amour types of characters, in Frank Herbert’s kinds of worlds, without Arthur C. Clarke’s attention to detail. Even the size of the book, a 205 page paperback, is printed with an easy reading layout and with a chapter title font bringing up old sci-fi book memories. The cover art depicts angelically winged aliens with antennae capturing an Earthling in front of a uniformly shaped background landscape ~ clearly setting the reader’s imagination into a Zen of curiosity.Martin writes a truly enjoyable and fun book. I gravitated to picking it up as often as I could to savor the storyline, and upon finishing it I felt very impressed with her sense of adventure and creativity. This book is a perfect companion on an airplane, or by a pool, or tucked by a fire at a ski resort. We are not alone!Title: The Universes
