I had to make this quick post because my mate Mike from Retire Young and Wealthy just published a potentially controversial article on InfoBarrel titled: Don’t Waste Your Money on the World Internet Summit. Now Mike didn’t know this before he wrote this piece but I spent a day listening to Brett McFall and when he did the free version of his “How To Make Money While You Sleep” in Perth some months back.
I had never heard of Brett McFall online but the full-page in the local tabloid that passes as the West Australian newspaper caught my eye in its sheer awfulness – you know the type – 6point type, releaved by the odd large bold – I WAS BROKE TOO, NO SKILLS NOW I MAKE $100,000 WHILE I SLEEP. I signed up out of curioristy – with about a 50% desire to actually go to the event. As the day nearer I was impresed with their follow up emails and even on the day an automated call to my cellphone (taking into account the local timezone) reminding me of this once in a life time opportunity.
Now as I said on my comments on Mike’s article – I had the same experience as he did – I learned nothing about “How To Make Money In Your Sleep”, the name of Brett McFall’s book, as well as the one-day pitch. But I was fascinated by seeing how the power of bulding up a dream, relating to your audience by explaining that you were just like them, pretending that something is available only for a limited time – really will make people pay thousands of dollars.
It also showed me – who has learned all my marketing on the Internet – just how much the “real world” is still prepared to pay for information which is either free or available for a fraction of the costs involved in The World Internet summit, not to mention McFall’s mentoring program.
Is Brett McFall’s How to Make Money While You Sleep a scam – no its not – if you are an experienced internet marketer who wants to get into developing your own product for sale and/or you want to learn copyrighting from a master – then its worth buying – or at least borrowing from your local library.
If however you are brand new to the Internet – know nothing about building a website – then do yourself a favour – keep your credit card locked up and read, read, read – there’s all you need to know available online for free. And yes you can make money while you sleep – because normally the US shops while we sleep in Australia – and most online customers are from North America! That’s not to say you don’t have to do an awful lot of work – if you thnk this is as easy as making money with property or shares – think again – it is not (and I know I have done all three).
For the rest of you head on over and check out Mike’s review and Brett McFall’s response to Mike’s experience at The World Internet Summit
