Dr. Clark’s Recommended Resource of the Week
Actually, since I’ve taken a couple of weeks off due to the Thanksgiving holiday and taking care of some other stuff, I’ll be posting 2 or 3 recommendations this week.
Eric Lofholm’s new book, The System
Not only has my friend and top sales coaching mentor Eric Lofholm released his fabulous new book, The System: The Proven 3-Step Formula Anyone Can Learn to Get More Leads, Book More Appointments, and Make More Sales, but if you click on this special link to order it, you’ll get a free ticket to his live virtual bootcamp with heavy hitters such as Jay Abraham, Dr. Donald Moine, Mel Robbins, and Les Brown–Eric always over-delivers, and this is no exception.
For around ten bucks you can get the print copy of the book, and for only around three bucks you can get the Kindle version–either way, you also get the incredible wisdom and experience of some of Eric’s mentors–I’m not sure how he convinced them to participate, but catch this deal before they change their minds. Also, if you think this book and event are only for salespeople (and they ARE a must for anyone who has to sell or persuade for a living) then think again.
Eric’s motivational message is evergreen and timeless and reaches across many professions and walks of life. Get this book (and the bonus virtual event) NOW–you’ll be glad you did!
Bob Jenkin’s “It’s Easy to Learn Mindmapping” Training
The next is my friend Bob “The Teacher” Jenkin’s free mindmap training session, “It’s Easy to Learn Mindmapping,” in which he reveals some tricks and strategies with an awesome brainstorming and idea organizing tool called FreeMind (which is, in fact, free to download). I have found it to be an excellent tool to help brainstorm ideas for and organize my books, websites, and training programs.
As I said, it’s a free software program, but as with all free or paid software, there’s a learning curve to get over before one can use it effectively, and what better way to learn free software than from a free training session provided by an expert user?

Armand Morin’s 3-Day, Live Traffic Generation WebCamp
Have website? Need traffic?
This is my third recommendation for this week–be sure to check out the other two, as they are EXCELLENT opportunities as well!
Armand Morin is holding his next live virtual “Webcamp” this weekend. If you are trying to promote your books, public speaking topics, music CDs, political or religious or non-profit cause, etc. on the internet, traffic generation is the LIFE BLOOD of your business…but up until now it’s been a closely gaurded secret, strictly controlled by an elite few…That’s all about to change…
during his 3-Day, Live Traffic Generation WebCamp where Armand personally teaches you all the Traffic Generation Secrets coveted by an elite few.

Marlon Sanders: The Writer’s Friend
I can’t tell you how much I have learned from Writer’s Secret author Marlon Sanders, who is considered one of the “Grand Daddies” of internet marketing. He has used his writing skills to make a very good living; In fact, he is a great example of how reading an article by one person or subscribing to a specific blog can enhance what Marlon calls the 3 “secrets” of his success: knowledge library, friends and networks, and mentors.
Many people, especially those who are new to copywriting or selling their own books, products, or services on the internet, get caught up spending tons of money on “bright, shiny objects” that promise to help them beat the system or get rich without any work at all.
The “secret,” though, as Marlon will quickly tell you, is to learn as much as possible, use that knowledge, share it with others, learn from and enter into dialogues with those who do it best–then lather, rinse, and repeat. In the long run this is the most effective method and will make you more successful than the latest fancy “get rich quick” scheme.
I would like to publicly thank Marlon for all he has done to be an excellent example for me and countless others, and for being willing to share what he has learned with us.
Listed below are just a few of the many products and services that Marlon has created over the years, many of which I have read and used. Do yourself a favor and check them out sooner rather than later!

Dennis Becker’s Earn1KaDay Membership Site
When I attended the last NAMS conference in Atlanta, I had the pleasure of finally meeting Dennis Becker in person. I had subscribed to Dennis’ newsletter for quite some time, and was always impressed by the quality and usefulness of his advice and the products and services he recommended. For example, he recommended a course on how to get your books bought by and distributed through libraries, and Kristen and I have used it to make many, many sales of our poetry and fiction books, as well as some of our inspirational and self-help books, and to also get speaking gigs in libraries!
I just found out that Dennis is offering a special discount for people interested in joining his monthly membership site, which contains access to a lot of great ebooks, info products, and online courses, as well as discussion groups with like-minded folks who are interested in promoting their books and speaking, as well as promoting other products and services online.
If this sounds interesting to you, I urge you to check this out now while the discount still applies.
He is currently offering two options: one is a monthly tuition, and the other is a lifetime membership (that’s the one that I got!).

Daniel Hall’s New Webinar Training:
“Make More, Sell Less: 7 Stealth Strategies For Selling Without Selling!”
Do you suffer from “Sales Phobia?”
Don’t laugh—this is a very problem for many people, even those whose jobs depend on persuading others to do something (teachers, managers, parents) believe something (politicians, religious leaders, supporters of social and environmental causes) and yes, even people whose job has “sales” or “marketing” in the title.
And from my experience, many people who try to sell their books, products, services, or ideas, whether online of offline, fail for two main reasons:
1) Fear, doubt, and low self-confidence
2) Lack of the proper tools, or a poor understanding of how to use them
Think about it—let’s say you just came out with a new book or info product, and you’re being interviewed by a radio or TV or webinar host, but you are so worried about how you look or sound, or how the host or the audience is reacting to you, that your discomfort level comes across as being pushy or arrogant or disorganized.
If any of this sounds familiar, but your business or the success of your book or speaking career depend on your ability to persuade others to buy your products, use your services, or believe or act upon your ideas or recommendations, I have some great news for you.
My buddy Daniel Hall has created a brand new webinar training, “Make More, Sell Less: 7 Stealth Strategies For Selling Without Selling!”
Head on over to http://www.danielhallwebinars.com/makemore/ to save your seat before they fill up, because from the initial reaction, I can already tell this is going to be one of his most popular webinars ever. Along with his special guest, a university professor who has been studying persuasive language and sales psychology for over 25 years (three guesses as to who that might be!), Daniel will be sharing secret strategies used by the world’s top influencers and persuaders, including:
• how to use the “borrowed selling” technique
• how to create an irresistible offer that sells itself … so you don’t have to
• why some people buy now and some never buy at all… and how to use this knowledge to your benefit
• what a Greek philosopher discovered 2500 years ago that could change your business forever
• how to introduce genuine scarcity and urgency into your offer
• what your role should be during the sales process (hint: NOT a salesperson)
He is providing this training for you at no cost, but the knowledge you’ll gain will be priceless, so before you do anything else, go ahead and register for the webinar and rearrange your schedule so you can attend.
P.S. Remember, regardless of your business model, or whether you consider yourself a sales professional or not (and especially if not) you will be able to easily and immediately incorporate these strategies to increase your sales flow and keep it coming in longer and more consistently!

It’s almost like being there, except you don’t pay for hotel, travel, food, taxis…
. . . like I did. and it was well worth the cost. If you weren’t able to make it live, though, I would highly recommend that you order this extremely valuable video set ASAP so you can experience what it was like and learn from these folks, who are not only some of the “best of the best” instructors available, but also “walk their talk” by putting into practice what they teach.
As a matter of fact, five of the thirteen people I interviewed for my upcoming book, The Webinar Leaders, were there teaching about various topics such as “How to Sell” (Daniel Hall) to “How to Make Money with an Expert Interview Series” (Cathy Demers) to “How to Make Video Book Trailers (Tony Laidig). And once you get a taste of what they have to teach, you’ll see why I’m so jazzed about this conference, and why Kristen and I have already reserved our seats for NAMS 11 in February, 2014!
And besides saving money on travel, lodging, food, etc., you can own the complete video set of the conference sessions and keynote speeches for less than I paid for the original conference fee. I even bought the videos myself so I could review the sessions I attended and watch all the great sessions I couldn’t go to in person.
