Now always the guy to test things out I will say this has been the most ANNOYING thing I have ever done. So allow me to recap my experiences from the last 6 o months.

I caught on the bandwagon of becoming a solo ad supplier purchased a few tutorials on the subject and proceeded to build my list. I spent countless of thousands of dollars because everyone said you have to do it a certain way.

I have seen great potential in this market so I did want to succeed. This is a tough niche to crack. i notice there was probably hundreds of coaches in this market but never paid much attention as I figure hell all coaching is fail. you know it never really occurred to me too much that what I do here and on skype on a daily basis is considered coaching....

So here I am spending thousands and thousands of dollars stuff people tell me I need to buy and buying solo ads so that I can sell solo ads. Now wait what? BUYING solo ads so I can SELL solo ads... Man there is some messed up logic there. Why do i even have to have a list if I can just buy in one place and sell in another? You have the benefit i guess if they are on your list you can resell them many times making more money but still the logic to buy in order to sell at an equal price seems kinda messed up to say the least.

So after all is said in done After spending ALL this money I only have about 1500 or so subs. Emailing this list might if I am lucky get me 20 unique clicks. I must have screwed up somewhere along the way but the question is where. Out of aggravation I delete the list as I am frustrated and want nothing more to do with it.

Well I talk to a friend about it along the way who gets interested in this. He saw something I did not see. He is a very big believer in work smarter not harder. I was busting my balls and he decided to pay a coach. For LESS then what I spent ding that messily list he got a coach and his list built up about 3 times bigger then what mine was and they where more responsive too. what is the deal here? He spent less money and got MORE all by having a coach.

Later on a a few months down the road he is showing me paypal payments and talking about how he went on vacation and made more on vacation then the cost of vacation. I am saying yeah I am slightly jealous. Yet once i been burnt on something kinda hard to get m back for another dose of PAIN. Yet this time I changed my mind.

I am setting everything up exactly as he did with him being my coach and using the exact same system. So I figured I would record my results for everyone to see. As he said it "bro if I can do it you can do it" He has never let me down yet so let's get this journey started and see where it takes us. I will try my best to give daily updates as of today I am sitting at about 40 subs from his efforts. this was done in about an hour so where this crazy train stops who but this is going to be one interesting journey for sure.

Okay it has been about 24 hours a little over but still very close.

Yeah that is just INSANE. So far I have done like 0 work and had probably one of the most insanest opt-in rates in the history of man. Seriously I see guru's bragging about hitting the 250 subs a day. What? I just topped that.

Soon I can begin selling clicks and actually make some money with this list being built. This is where the real test is at. I am excited to find out if this list can do and perform better then my last. If it can then we got us a winner.

I got a nice welcome Email that walked me through the basics. Nothing really new to me as it was just the basics. The real training starts when my list is big enough where I can start selling the clicks. So nothing really to do but to wait.

Sometimes we all need to be shown things, light the path through the dark.
Once it clicks then you start flying.

Okay New update!!

This is what I am talking about. Is this insane or what? I have never seen a list build up this fast. It is just crazy to say the least. I am very happy about the progress so far. This keeps up I should be selling clicks within a week.That means from nothing in Email marketing to selling clicks in under 7 days.. WOW.

Okay let me just give you a little back drop as to why this is so profound. No guru out there. NO coach out there has ever had there students building a list this fast. Even the gurus say it takes about 60-90 days to get your list ready to start making kind of income selling clicks. Which for this you will need about 3k subs. So if it keeps up at this rate omg. I am just in complete and total shock.

This kind of stuff is just not heard of and I am completely thankful to the fact that I have got the opportunity to use this system. But the proof is in the pudding so we will wait and see next.

Not selling anything or recommending any product just sharing my experiences. I am learning and from my learning perhaps you can learn as well and we can learn together through my experiences. This my friend is a journal on one of my few projects I have been working on. I figured it would be great to create a journal seeing how my first attempt I flunked.

If at first you don't succeed, try try again. Good work Smeltzer, I'll definitely be following this journal.

Second Verse same as the first!

Isn't that sexy? I think so.

Today I just have not felt good at all. Felt drained of energy. Yet it does not matter I still had a good day. A picture is worth a thousand words so you tell me what is you think my day looked like lol.

Still I am one happy lil camper and extremely grateful for the opportunity I have been given. I think by next week I can start selling clicks. Then we can see what is really up. Let us see what tomorrow does bring :)

Yet another day of success!


I am without a doubt know that next week I will be making money with this list. As you can see the list is building crazy fast. So hopefully next week instead of subscribers I will be posting screens of payments instead ;) I might post both.

I hope everyone is have a great weekend and do not forget to take some time and spend with your family.

Get Response. If you mail legitly you do not really use software as there is way too much to worry about and the cost are astronomical for legit mailing so you contract that out to a service who has everything already set up and can keep a record of opt-ins and there day opted in at and all the legalities.
