However, these Strategic Profits programs are still available, most of them are completely FREE and you can grab them while you can by clicking on the following links below:

Oh crap–the gloves are coming off…

September 25, 2008 at 3:58 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment


Have you had it, guys?

I mean REALLY had it?

Are those stupid little walls between you and your destiny making you frustrated, angry, and ready to spit nails?

You know the ones I’m talking about:

Trying to do everything right the first time…
Being too linear in your thinking…
Working too hard for too little…
Always feeling two steps behind…
Well, I know what you’re going through.

Yes, believe it or not, I struggle with many of the same constraints you do.
Seems like very time I start to get a little momentum… SMACK! One of the same ol’ friggin’ roadblocks pops up and says,
“Hello, remember me? I’ll be standing between you and your success today–and every day”.


It’s enough to make a guy toss up his hands and say, “Screw this. It ain’t worth the hassle.”

But don’t. Please don’t. Because help is on the way.

There’s light at the end of the tunnel. And no, it’s not an oncoming freight train.
It’s the guru to the gurus, holding a flashlight and a GPS that will lead you out of this mess–once and for all.

Follow The Light, guys

Rich Schefren has had it with constraints too. And he’s taking the gloves off.
In his new Global Profits System (GPS), Rich takes on the biggest nightmare to ever plague entrepreneurs: all that dinky little crap that seems so insignificant, yet holds so much stopping power.
Inside this in-depth coaching program, you’ll walk side-by-side with Rich as he guides through a 30-day program that’s not only going to push aside those constraints that are keeping you from success…
But literally PUMMEL those SOB’s into submission.
Isn’t that what you really want?

Follow The Light, guys

Rich’s coaching programs are legendary for reversing the downward slide of a business and delivering a tidal wave of profits in record time..

Or actually, I should say “coaching PROGRAM”–with no “s”. Because Rich doesn’t do this type of thing anymore.

In fact, after the first program concluded (the same one that helped launch Joel Comm, Mike Filsaime, Michel Cheney, Tellman Knudson and many more into the top guru ranks), he swore off ever doing another one.

Why? Because it’s an intense, grueling process.

Rich is on the phone with you virtually every day for a month…he’s drilling you with questions about your business…and he’s coming up with revolutionary strategies and tactics to pull massive profits from unlikely places.

This is not a “go to my blog and read this article once a month” thing. Rich virtually grabs you by the hand and FORCES you to be successful.

And if you can’t handle it, then you shouldn’t look at this page.

Follow The Light, guys

So are you ready?

Ready to fight through the roadblocks that are keeping you from the wealth, freedom, and lifestyle of your dreams?

Ready to finally discover how to eliminate those nasty walls you keep banging your head against?

Ready to smash your constraints once and for all?
Good–because Rich just pulled the gloves off. And he’s about to go all UFC on those bad boys.

DING DING. Round one is underway…

Follow The Light, guys

P.S. I know this email may have sounded a bit overly aggressive, but I did that to get your attention…

Because make no mistake about it: you’re in a battle.
A battle for your time. A battle for your resources. A battle for your business profits.
And this battle is to the DEATH.

So you need someone in your corner who will lead the charge and fight for you tooth and nail…someone who’s a leader among leaders…someone who knows how to defeat constraints and help you achieve the victory that’s eluded you for way too long.

And that someone is Rich Schefren.
So you gonna let them win?

Meet the President

September 23, 2008 at 6:43 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Robert LoCascio

Robert P Locascio
CEO/Chairman of the Board/Director at
LivePerson, Incorporated
New York, New York
Officer since November 1995
Director since November 1995
Financial data from Hemscott

39 years old
Robert P. LoCascio, 39, has been our Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of our Board of Directors since our inception in November 1995. In addition, Mr. LoCascio was our President from November 1995 until January 2001. Mr. LoCascio founded our Company as Sybarite Interactive Inc., which developed a community-based web software platform known as TOWN. Before founding Sybarite Interactive, through November 1995, Mr. LoCascio was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sybarite Media Inc. (known as IKON), a developer of interactive public kiosks that integrated interactive video features with advertising and commerce capabilities. Mr. LoCascio was named a New York City 2001 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. Mr. LoCascio received a B.B.A. from Loyola College.


40 Under 40 > 2004 >

The first thing Robert LoCascio did when he moved to New York in 1995 was to incorporate a company. Never mind that he didn’t have an idea, let alone a product. “You need a company,” he says. “Before you get an idea, you get a business card.” The unconventional approach paid off. Mr. LoCascio now heads Nasdaq-listed LivePerson, whose roster of clients includes Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. Last year, after years of losses, it became one of the few Internet companies to turn a profit. The product Mr. LoCascio eventually came up with enables a company’s customers to chat over the Internet with a customer representative, a cheaper alternative to telephone customer support. LivePerson expects $12 million in revenues and $2 million in net profit for 2003. Before founding LivePerson, Mr. LoCascio already had one successful venture behind him, a business he’d set up soon after graduating from Loyola College in Baltimore. The company sold interactive kiosks that universities could use to give students information on campus activities. The gamble was a success, and New York University and the University of Maryland installed the kiosks in their student unions. But when the Internet exploded onto the scene in the mid-’90s, Mr. LoCascio realized students wouldn’t bother leaving their dorm rooms to get information. He wound down his business and moved from Baltimore to New York. Despite Mr. LoCascio’s knack for starting companies, he’s putting his entrepreneurial days behind him. “I know I can go from three guys in a room and build something, but can I build a $100 million or $500 million company? That’s the real challenge,” he says.

Michael Rasmussen’s "Email Promos Exposed" Video Series: How to Write Killer Email Promos That Get Results!

September 20, 2008 at 3:47 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

From the desk of Val Slastnikov:

Have you ever been faced with the task of having
to write an email promotion to your list, and
then realized that you didn’t know what to say or
how to say it?

Michael Rasmussen’s new video course “Email
Promos Exposed” promises to solve that problem
for you by walking you through the actual process
of creating killer email promos step-by-step.


If you’re in a hurry, just go ahead visit this
URL to get instant free access to these videos:

Email Promos Exposed – See For Yourself


I decided to see if Michael’s videos live up to
their promise by trying them out myself. Here’s
what I found:

Overall Quality

The first thing I noticed when I opened up the
first video was the stunning production quality.
He used Camtasia Studio for the production, which
is now the industry standard for creating
high-quality screen capture video products. The
audio is near studio quality, and the graphics
are very professional. These videos were made by
someone who KNOWS what he’s doing. Well done!

I also liked how Michael divided the videos up by
section, and then again by sub-section. For
example, one video is all about the subject line,
and then there are different parts of that video
that each cover a certain area of crafting a
killer subject line.

Now let’s move onto…


Here’s a brief summary of each video. Obviously
it’s impossible to list every single thing here,
but I want you to get a feel for what each one
covered, and how well it covered it.

If you’re in a hurry, just go ahead visit this
URL to get instant free access to these videos:

Email Promos Exposed – See For Yourself



This video served as an introduction to the whole
course. You get to see a picture of Michael in
his every day life, and he establishes his
credibility right up front by talking about some
of his massive successes online. He even provides
proof of credibility by displaying two checks in
the amount of $50,000 and $25,000 which prove
that, when it comes to the subject of making
money with email promos, he knows his stuff.

This is a good lesson for anyone to get. Whenever
you’re teaching people how to do something, it’s
good to establish your credibility up front, so
that there’s no doubt about whether or not you’re
qualified to talk about the subject. Most product
developers either skip or minimize this step.


This video talks about some things that no other
marketer has bothered to mention. You’ll learn
things like:

* The mindset you need in order to write a killer

* The different tools you need before you get

* How to keep your emails laser-focused

* How to create an outline that practically
writes the email for you.

This was a fantastic video, and did a good job of
kicking things off.


I liked this video, because it talked about one
of MY biggest weaknesses when it comes to writing
email promos… the subject line. The subject
line is a confusing topic, because nobody’s 100%
sure what the best tactics are.

Michael breaks it down, and reveals:

* The biggest secret for writing a subject line
that makes people insanely curious.

* Techniques for personalizing the subject line.

* Mistakes to avoid when using personalization.

I was surprised to find that I was making some of
the mistakes that Michael mentioned in this
video, but now I know better.


This is where a lot of people slack off when
writing their emails. Michael talks about how
important it is to create an opening that is
conversational, and then reveals techniques and
examples on how to do that.

He also reveals:

* How to get people to keep reading your email
once they’ve opened it.

* How to make your opening interesting.

* Mistakes to avoid when creating your first few


This is one of the “meatiest” portions of the
course, because it reveals techniques that are
not widely discussed on the forums, blogs, and in
most eBooks. He talks about the importance of
keeping your body copy tight and relevant, and
then reveals how you can do that. You’ll also

* How to write powerful bullets that make people
curious and want to find out more.

* Simple formatting tricks for making your body
copy easy to read.

* The secret of “bucket brigade copy” and how to
use it in your email promos to force people to
keep reading.


This is where a lot of people wimp out in their
email promos. They start out strong, but when it
comes time to ask the reader to click the link
and take action, they don’t know what to say.
Michael talks about some of his favorite
techniques for making that happen, and also

* The “magic question” to ask yourself that will
make your close much more powerful.

* The secret of the “unanswered question” and why
handling this is a surefire way to get people to
act right away.

* The structure of a powerful close.

* Mistakes people make when creating their close.


Some people say that the P.S. is one of the most
important parts of the email, because it is often
the one thing that gets people to click the link
at the end. In this video, Michael talks about:

* Why you should including a P.S. at the end of
your email.

* The 4 different kinds of P.S.’s you can use
(this section was a real eye-opener for me).


I loved this video, because it showed me some
mistakes that I was making that I wasn’t even
aware of. Unless you’re a seasoned pro, you’re
probably guilty of some of the things that
Michael talks about in this video as well, and
that’s why it’s so valuable. I’ve shaved years
off my learning curve, because now I can avoid
some of the costly mistakes that I was bound to
make in the learning process.


This video alone is going to make me a lot of
money. Why? Because I used to only send out one
email promo for each affiliate promotion I was
doing. Michael showed me in this video how
important it is to send a follow-up promotion,
and he showed me exactly how to do it. He covered
things like:

* The psychology of follow-up email promo’s.

* The 2 main types of follow-up promos that make
the most money.

* How to overcome readers’ objections in your
follow up emails.

* The 2 most common mistakes people make when
writing follow-ups and how to avoid them.


Every marketing guru out there says that the REAL
money is on the back end. I’d have to agree with
them, but the problem is… most people have no
idea how to set up a back end system that makes
money. This video will teach you how to set up an
automated back end that’s loaded with killer
promos that make you lots of cash on autopilot.
He reveals things like:

* The big difference between regular and back end
email promos.

* How to prepare a back end promotion sequence.

* Common mistakes people make when creating back
end email promos.


This could be the most important video of the
entire package for a lot of people, because most
people email their list to promote other people’s
products as an affiliate. Let’s face it, if you
only have 3 products, can you really afford to
only email your list 3 times a year? They’ll get
bored hearing about the same old products over
and over again. This video sheds some light on
how to create killer affiliate promos. Michael
reveals things like:

* The two main types of affiliate promos.

* What makes affiliate promos different than
regular promos (and why ignoring this huge secret
could cost you big money).

* Michael’s favorite tactics for creating
affiliate promos that no one else is doing.

* 3 different ways to add scarcity to your
affiliate promos (this is the most important
section of the video, so make sure you watch it
over and over again).


As you can see, Email Promos Exposed really packs
a lot of punch! Most of the courses out there
offer only watered down, weak content. Not this
one! These videos are going on my “A-list” for a
long time.

I’ve already watched them twice, and plan on
reviewing them every couple months to make sure
that I have the principals, techniques and
tactics burned into my mind.

If email marketing is an important part of your
business (and in my opinion, it’s the most
important part of ANY online business), then you
owe it to yourself to check out Michael’s
exciting new videos, Email Promos Exposed.

Here’s the URL where you can get instant free access
to the videos right now.

LivePerson joins forces with Kasamba

September 19, 2008 at 2:14 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

In June 2007 LivePerson agreed to acquire the Israeli online expert advice provider Kasamba Inc. for about $40 million. LivePerson, a New York provider of online conversation products and services, have acquired the company for $9 million in cash and about $31 million in stock to expand its global presence.

Kasamba’s 30,000 Experts Receive Wider Platform with LivePerson

LivePerson has always believed that what the Internet needs most is real people to interact with visitors who go online with a specific mission to fulfill, whether that’s finding the perfect present for a friend or selecting a web-hosting provider for a growing business.

That’s why LivePerson decided in October 2007 to acquire Kasamba and its network of 30,000 experts. Our goal is a simple one: to make trusted, expert advice available to anyone anywhere who needs it.

Extending LivePerson’s Mission with Kasamba

LivePerson’s mission has always been to help people help other people online; it’s something we’ve been doing all along with our business solutions. What we’ve learned through research and listening to wide variety of people is this: Sometimes our customers’ website visitors need to advice from experts that work for the company, and sometimes they need expertise that the company simply doesn’t offer. For instance, a seasoned filmmaker probably knows more about how to achieve certain cinematic affects using Final Cut Pro than the product development team that created the program. Rather than turn those visitors away, shouldn’t companies make it easy for their customers to find the advice they need?

That’s how LivePerson is leveraging the Kasamba platform to extend its mission. Now, our business customers can offer access to their internal knowledge through the same business solutions they’ve always used. And, they can enable their visitors to chat with their brand enthusiasts and experts through our Affiliate Program. Simply invite the experts to join LivePerson, and place their profile on the company’s site, perhaps on the Support page. LivePerson takes care of everything on behalf of the expert and company.

Everyone wins: the brand enthusiasts have the opportunity to earn money by providing expert-level advice in the products or services at which they excel. And the company’s site is a lot stickier, now that their customers have a strong incentive to return frequently (with no additional headcount or internal resources required). Finally, LivePerson shares some of the revenue that stems the site back with the company.

A New Web Home for Kasamba

We’ve worked hard to complete the merger between LivePerson and Kasamba, and to blend the combined talent of both of our companies. Now we’re pleased to present to the online community a fully integrated online destination where people who seek advice can find and chat live with experts who can provide it.

Such an online destination needs a single identity and address. So as part of the integration, we’ve officially retired the Kasamba name, and moved Kasamba to All of Kasamba’s service, functionality, pricing and payment structure remain the same. Neither the experts nor their clients will experience any interruptions in the service they’ve come to rely upon.

There are plenty of benefits for all of our users, thanks to the integration. Experts can extend their reach by adding online widgets to their blogs or providing links to their profile in message board posts and other forums. And clients can leverage the same Affiliate Program mentioned above to recommend their favorite experts to their friends and colleagues, and receive a piece of any revenue that’s generated.

While 30,000 may seem like a lot of experts, we see it as a starting point. Over the next year we will focus on increasing the ranks of our experts so that no matter what kind of advice you need, you’ll be able to find it quickly and conveniently.

Rich Schefren on Outsourcing (featuring IM OutSourcerer & Eva Schefren)

September 19, 2008 at 1:16 am | Posted in business building, internet business, online business, online guru coach, rich schefren, strategic profits, videos, web business | Leave a comment

Jeff Walker to me
show details 6:03 AM (14 hours ago)

As I type this, Rich Schefren has been on a
live video stream for about 18 straight
hours – and he plans to keep going for another
6 hours… he’s trying to make it to the 24
hour mark.

The dude is just plain crazy… he just keeps
answering question after question live on the
video stream – he’s totally fueling himself
on Diet Coke, coffee, and cold Chinese

So WHY is he doing it? To celebrate that fact
that he FINALLY finished his latest report on
building your Internet business.

Rich has basically built his entire business
(and it’s an EIGHT figure business) based on
his free reports – they are THAT good.

Basically, once or twice a year, he puts out
one of these killer business-building reports
and blows everyone away.

Then the reports get downloaded tens of
thousands of times, and then when he finally
decides to actually sell something, well…
everyone wants to buy it.

It’s a pretty effective formula, and it all
starts with Rich’s killer report. There’s a
ton of great business building strategy in

Bottom line, go get the new report and read
it… you can thank me later.
