Black Ink Project Beginnings
I have been associated with Jeremy Palmer’s Black Ink Project affiliate marketing training since mid-April of this year when he announced that he was going to open his training up to 2000 students. Having read his High Performance Affiliate Marketing ebook, I couldn’t wait for the sessions to begin.
All I can say is what has happened since then has changed completely how I do business online.
Black Ink Project
Jeremy Palmer is one of those rare people who really cares about seeing others succeed and he never stops learning. His first Black Ink Project was an eight week course that he literally produced a day or two ahead of time. It consisted of 5 weekday webinars followed by a week for action where there were no webinars but we had been given assignments.
We had a part of his Quit Your Day Job forum dedicated specifically for Black Ink Project participants. There was also an area where we could download the daily webinars and any associated files. I was completely blown away and blogged daily about it. Even at that point, I realized that training of this caliber could cost hundreds if not thousands and we were getting it for free.
Before you say “Free? Nothing’s free” let me tell you that except for a handful of tools that he recommended and posted affiliate links for, there was no charge or anything that had to be purchased. Even for the tools he recommended he would also give free alternatives.
The course covered the entire affiliate marketing process from finding and researching your niche to building landing pages and finishing with marketing your site and link building.
Black Ink Project 2
Always believing that he can do better, at the end of the BIack Ink Project Jeremy announced his plans to launch a Black Ink Project 2 starting in July. He had been actively participating in the forums and had also received tons of feedback from participants. What he heard time and time again was that they wanted even more “how to” type lessons. Using this information he completely revamped the training to include more detail areas like site design, site development, installing a blog, outsourcing, setting up and optimizing Pay Per Click campaigns, dynamic landing pages and tracking and evaluating your campaigns.
I should point out that Jeremy makes no attempt to hide that his success has come almost exclusively from paid search marketing like Adwords, Yahoo and Adcenter. For some people, this is a turnoff because they feel this is like cheating or something.
To those people, I say enroll in the training and you will see. After a few lessons you will realize that Jeremy did not get lucky throwing money away and wishing for success. You will see that he has a very methodical and scientific approach to paid search marketing that has few rivals anywhere.
I participated in the Black Ink Project 2 that will be wrapping up shortly. He has again made on the fly additions to his training that included weekly UstreamTV/WebEx calls that allowed us to ask real-time questions along with special sessions on using his Optimize My Site campaign tracking software. Software which he provided free to BIP2 participants, by the way. We also were given our own exclusive members-only forum
Why Are You Telling Me This, Jeff?
Yesterday, Jeremy opened up his Black Ink 2 affiliate marketing training to the public. This program represents the culmination of over six months of working with live students and promises to be his best ever. It will consist of 15 hands-on training sessions delivered in Windows Media, QuickTime and iPod movie format. Each session will contain supplemental training materials to help reinforce what you learn in the session.
Jeremy could easily sell this course for between $500.00 and $1,000.00. But he doesn’t want to put it out of reach for people trying to get their start online.
So here’s the deal…
You get the entire Black Ink Project 2.0 course (15 downloadable videos, templates, supplemental training material, sample files and source code) and access to the exclusive member community (already over 1,100 posts) for a one-time fee of only $97. Yes you read that right – $97. No hidden fees. No monthly fees. Nothing else to buy.
And because Jeremy believes you will love this course, he makes this Ironclad Guarantee:
“If you’re not happy with the course – for any reason, simply e-mail me within 60 days, and I’ll give you all of your money back – no hassles.”
So, you’ve got nothing to lose and a successful online business to gain.
