Marc Milburn’s Fast Profits Formula Review

Marc Milburn’s Fast Profits Formula provides a no-nonsense overview of online marketing for newbies.

The course divides into 7 video training Modules:

1. Introduction & Overview

2. Your Own Info Product

3. Writing Your Webpage Copy

4. Accepting Payments

5. Putting everything Together

6. Marketing Your Product

7. Building Your Business

With each module Marc provides PDF, MP3 and video files you can download to your desktop. He also provides links to other resources (cleverly upselling his own product in his members’ area with products and courses on e.g. copywriting – but hell why not, they’re at least relevant and certainly not intrusive.) He also offers a bonus training module, which you can go through after you’ve finished Building Your Business.

Marc’s delivery is animated and the language he uses easy to understand. This is perfect for newbies, who will almost certainly need some hand-holding – as do we all when starting this stuff without a degree in marketing, graphics and html! Each of the sections is covered in detail. Some of the videos are a tad long in my view and could have been either a little more concise or cut up into smaller portions of 25-30 minutes; an hour or even 45 minutes is a long time to ask someone to sit through any training at home in one sitting.

The main thing to note is this is solid content: this stuff works, anyone who’s been marketing online for a year or more will recognise these methods are proven to work and if you do what Marc teaches you, you will make money and begin to build a solid online business.

I like the fun graphics on his site and the overall impression is of a young marketer who genuinely wants to help people get a foothold in internet marketing and enjoy doing it.

The price too is exceptionally generous at only $8.95. I can see that going up in the very new future, so if you are looking for a comprehensive entry-level course in internet marketing, you’d be crazy not to take a closer look.

Video in products should not be an excuse to waffle on

I appreciate: more and more IM products figure video. Video is de rigeur. Video is now…

It’s also pretty boring sometimes. An excuse for people to waffle on about the bloody obvious. Chat. Yakety yah yakety yah.

And it’s chat which I’m being asked to pay for.

Oh, but it’s video and there’s a logo on the video and the members’ area page, so that’s alright, it must be legit.

Frankly I’m bored of a lot of products out there pretending to deliver ‘advanced techniques’ when in actual fact they’re delivering absolute beginner’s stuff – albeit with video. Or, at best, 80% chat, 20% actual teaching. If I’m buying, I don’t want chat. I don’t want your life story, your tough times in some hovel somewhere, your debt problems or your fantastic holidays. I don’t want your life coaching waffle either. I want actionable stuff that will make me better at my business and make me money. Period.

What people have to say in videos I don’t pay for – that’s up to them. Chat away. But when I’m paying for a product I don’t want chat. Now you’re on my meter and it had better be worth it.

That’s not to say I’m against a personable approach, not at all, but let’s have some economy and get down to business. I also wouldn’t mind if there was plenty of chat AND a boat load of content, but so often there’s just a mountain of the former and a little mound of the latter.

There are lots of very personable marketers who ride on just that and use video to ‘brand’ themselves. Well that’s fine for them – but very often bad for us.

So this is just a brief plea to marketers using video in their products – let’s keep it tight, economic, business-like and professional.

I welcome your comments.
