Here’s another case study that blew up on me.

This one’s with Dave Miz from

Short Version:

Dave bought my stuff and made a bunch of money real fast.

We talk about it for a while and then I end up reviewing his site and showing him how to make Adwords work in his hyper-competitive market.

It’s about an hour long and you can either click the “play” button above or right click here to download the mp3.

    Great Great Great info on Adwords.

    It’s all these things that are adding value even BEFORE the course begins.


    All the best

    Hi Frank,
    You might want to change your copy for the “(open up. MAJOR news that affects you.)” E-mail you sent. About midway down it says “…See, I’m just mailing you a big box of stuff and saying, “Thanks. Bye.””
    Thanks for all the content Frank!

    Hope This Helps,
    Feel F.R.E.E. to call me with any questions.
    I look forward to working with you.
    To Our Success!

    Wow… is he for real? Not Dave. The first poster guy. I think you talked about stalkers in your Gauher interview.

    Good stuff Frank. :)

    Move back to Macon. We need you over here too man! Honestly Frank, your emails along with the other gurus were going into my bulk folder and taking up space in my yahoo account. The whistle blower email caught my attention. I Opened it and here I am today. I’m almost peeling the letters off my blackberry to alert me when i get an email from you. This is sick!! I feel like a Frank Kern groupie. You got good stuff though. Keep it coming.

    Give me a break Stephen!

    You forgot the the photo of yourself…the audio promo…and not to mention your video post:)

    This is an audio, so while listening, I don’t know what to do with my eyes. So I let my eyes relax, let them roll around naturally and see where they end up.
    You know what, they ended up resting on your Logo Frank.
    Cool logo, great audio, applaud you for putting in such a trememdous effort. I know it’s not easy.
    Good luck to your MassControl launch, looks set to be a HUGE success.

    Hey Frank,

    Very cool interview. Can you tell us where we can pick up that very cool audio player at the top of the post.

    This launch has really captivated me! I’ve always mistrusted Internet Marketing, dismissing it as a self-fulfilling industry – full of over-priced, low quality products that, in the main, told you how you could make a million dollars from internet marketing!!

    Frank, your videos, mp3s and emails have chipped away at my scepticism and have really made me think how I could apply it to my (actually, my wife’s) business. I can’t stop thinking about ideas how to implement the stuff – and that’s just what I’ve gleaned from all the freebies. Hell – I’ve even woken up thinking about Frank Kern!! I think Frank’s stalking my head!!

    I’ve been a business adviser for over ten years in the UK and while I championed the internet I knew I wasn’t doing my clients justice with the knowledge I had. These past couple of weeks have really acted like the proverbial rocket up my ass!

    I’m now convinced that this will suit ANY business that could exploit the internet – even my wife’s stress management consultancy.

    I cannot praise, or thank you enough Frank – and I’ve YET to make a penny more – but I know I will!

    Since I work for the IRS and my brother works for the FTC, we have been watching this launch very closely.

    Normally, I don’t waste time posting to these blogs…

    Yet, throughout this particular product launch, beginning just before Frank’s email for the free Camtasia link, he has revealed so much subtle information, that I almost feel obligated.

    … Reciprocity

    Sure, the studious NLP folks understand the concept, even voiced their opinion by comments in these blogs. Yet, I am a bit curious, if they were actually taking action by application, would they have time to be posting for their ego here?

    Anyway, for the rest of us, watching this launch unfold, is an education in itself.

    Regardless, more than knowledge, it takes personality and the ex truck driver, the ol boy from Macon Georgia relates (relationships) well to the common folk. You know, those that actually spend a lot of dollars to learn this business.

    And has anyone noticed how many other marketers are now rolling out a lot of free information, video, etc.?

    It reminds me of when Chris (was it in Affiliate X?) wrote about piling on the bonuses for affiliate sales and now everyone is doing it. Heck, look around and the bonuses are often worth a lot more than the actual product.

    One could argue that Cory Rudl probably initiated within the IM market, but few have expanded their customer support base by using past students as future instructors. Frank, that was good.

    In conclusion, I will say this… like many of you, I get hundreds of marketing letters every day of the week in various throwaway accounts, but Frank is the only marketer that has my ISP email address and has never spammed it.

    Besides, I am really anxious to view Frank’s next tax return.

    Have a perfect day!


    PS: Frank, the website link goes to a 404 page… :):)

    Frank, thank you very very much for all your work. What you are sharing with us is prime time entertainment and first class internet marketing!

    Are you sharing all this information in preparation for your next project. Listening and watching makes me anxious to see what is next. Hope I can act quickly enough to be a part of your next big thing.
