How My First Investment of 2011 Was To Turn $3,629 Into $100,000 to $300,000
More importantly, how you can do the same or better at the start of 2012
Our Boat Docked At Grand Turk In The Caribbean
Yes, yes I know that’s not now, but unfortunately if you want your life to change you actually have to plan for it to do so. It is what’s known as ‘doing something different, to get a different result.’
What’s I’m about to tell you about is almost certainly going to be the best way to start your life off in 2012 and transform your success forever. Now it’s a year away, but you know that year will just fly by.
As right now I am in a truly fantastic position thanks to making a smart move this time last year.
I’ve just returned from the Internet Marketing Cruise that Mike Filsaime organises annually. My friend Nicola went a few years ago and told me that this was a must attend event. Well this year I decided I’d go along… What can I say, the sales letter, and anything I can say or write WILL NOT do this thing justice.
This cruise may not be for everyone, but it is probably for you, that’s if you are ready to take your business or you aspirations to work for yourself online to the next level.
As you may well know I am someone who researches and when he finds things of great value reports back on them. In other words I like telling people about things which produce a massive return on their investment. And today I’m going to share with you something which will produce me a fortune over the coming years.
Well the good news is it can do it for you too… I’m going to cover who this cruise is for, what it’ll cost you and what you’ll get out of it… And what I’ll be earning by recommending this to you.
One hilarious evening with great company
Firstly let’s cover is it worthwhile for someone like me… I.e. I am an affiliate marketer, I have a large mailing list and I have featured in the top 10 promoters of several affiliate deals, including number one on two occasions.
Well I met some guys who I had never even heard of, yet had massive mailing lists. Their products were complimentary and not competitive. Whilst chatting with them and getting to know each other we were able to see ways we could possibly work together. This was no effort, there was no closing a deal, it was pleasurable and it was as easy as making a new friend in the bar.
The cruise cost me, $1,298 for the cabin, $816 Mainly bar bill, (my friends all spent about $300 – $500, but I really like my Daiquiri’s), an overnight stay in Ft Lauderdale $115, and my flight to Florida was About $1,400. So my total investment was $3,629, for what was the best networking event I have ever attended.
I did a quick calculation of the number of my products I expect to sell following on from forming these relationships. And if only the ones who said they would promote, end up promoting (not counting the other 3 dozen relationships I formed). Then I expect to generate a very conservative $300,000. And that’s just this year!
I expect to build on those relationships, and I think it’s fair to say that I will end up working with a lot more of the people I met. So I expect this conservative figure to easily top $1,000,000 over time!
My thoughts are to any person or company with a product to sell online, then your cost of attending is at least minus $100,000… There is no way, you are not loosing money if you do not attend.
Plus you get to socialise with some incredible minds and holiday in the Caribbean, I struggle to think of a reason someone with a mailing list should not go as it has all the potential to transform your business and get you to a whole new level.
Best Room Mate
If you’re someone who is into internet marketing but just can’t quite make it work. Then this will be the solution you are looking for. I enjoy seminars but they are nearly always a group of speakers telling you what you want, and then guess what their product is the solution. The problem with that is you doubt what they are telling you is true because they were selling you something. So when you use the product and struggle with it… You think was I sold something which doesn’t work.
However, on the cruise, there’s no pitch going on. The whole purpose is to be in a sharing environment. So the brainstorming sessions are pure gold with advice coming from multiple people and some real, real cutting edge techniques and strategies coming out. They are telling you about software tools not because they have an affiliate link but because they are using it.
You have people in the same line of business, competing in the same niche together offering each other ideas. I have never seen this in business before, there is something about the people in this industry which do not look at competition in the same way as industrial age businesses.
Me with Mike Filsaime, I was standing on a box
The networking sessions help introduce you to people who have made it work and usually you’ll find several people supporting what they’ve done. Some of the biggest names in marketing are there. Their purpose is to see what happens… They are obviously there to do business if they can, but like me, they know they will do that and are therefore willing to share as much as they can. As they all understand the law of reciprocation, you give out and more will come back than you give, but it will almost certainly not come back from where you gave.
So if you are struggling to make Internet Marketing work, then this cruise defines it for you in a way which no seminar ever can. You will not only know that you can make it work, you will have identified exactly how to do so by the end of the cruise.
If you are someone who is new to internet marketing and you are looking at this as a possible career then this is the perfect place for you to start. I doubt you will make profit on your first trip but you will get your direction. For example. A lady who was a lumberjack got up to present the cruise hosts with some gifts.
This was her third cruise and she was giving the gifts as a thank you for what everyone shared with her when she got a hot seat on her first year. She got up and said that when she came on the cruise the first time she had never done internet marketing. Now in her third year for the first time she got to fly down to the cruise first class.
In fact she got to travel first class everywhere as what she learned in the hot seat changed her business life. In that first year she was given stacks of ideas and she went away and implemented them into her business.
There were others who went on the cruise this year who knew all the technical skills about putting up websites etc. Stuff I have no idea about, I just know who to email. But these guys knew all that stuff but didn’t know what to do to profit from it. Every one of them by the end of the week had figured out the direction they needed to go to turn their goal of working online into a reality.
Basically, if you are new to internet marketing then this shortcuts a lot of the junk people pick up from reading the wrong advice or buying the wrong products. With this crowd you go straight to the heart of the matter and discover:-
1) It is real, you really can profit from working from home
2) It is probably one of the most secure types of income you can ever create
3) It can be immense fun, always challenging yet very rewarding
4) It can become hugely financially rewarding too
5) Your income really can be replaced in just a few hours a week. If that’s what you truly want.
6) Or you can become rich while working from home
So if you’re new to Internet Marketing or your current job just does not give you the life you want, both financially and emotionally and you want to do something which feels more like a hobby than a job. Then this is the perfect place to start.
Our Old Showroom
If you run an existing commodity or service business and are struggling with how to differentiate your business, or how to increase prices while others are decreasing theirs. Then this is the place to be. The minds that are on this cruise specialise in giving their customers a reason why to part with their money without ever even speaking to them.
What this means is that they do not have the advantage of a salesman who can think on his feet, they have to think what their customer will be thinking ahead of time. In doing so they discover all their customer needs to know to make a decision. And they put it to them in a way which allows them to purchase without risk.
During your week with these people you would be able to chat with probably 40 – 50 different marketers all of which who would give you unequaled insight into the ways to differentiate your business from others. So that you become the commodity or service business who you must do business with. No where else on the planet could you get that sort of group of experts to sit and give you strategy advice for free, and be happy to share it with you.
Let alone if you end up being given one of the hot seats and then you will have around 300 people thinking about your business. Can you imagine what it would cost to have 40 – 50 minds of that level thinking about your business for an hour or two each?
The value to the lady lumberjack, is her business is now pre-eminent in her field. She now travels first class. To her the cruise is a no-brainer. Simply because she has got so much from it and knows she will continue to do so.
So if you’re struggling in your business then this is the single best investment you can make in it. Plus of course the entire trip is a tax write off!
If you are in Internet Marketing and you do joint ventures with people, then my personal opinion is… If I do not make $100,000 profit from having attended the cruise this year then I don’t deserve to be in the business. That’s a 2,755% return on my investment… Now I’m pretty sure this will actually be worth $300,000 over the next 12 months, and probably around $1,000,000 within the next 3 to 4 years. So if you are in the business then going on this should be a no-brainer.
If you have been in Internet Marketing for years and have never made the breakthrough past the occasional profit. Then this will steer you in exactly the right direction and within a year of being on the cruise you should have replaced your income with an online income. What would that be worth to you?
If you are a complete newbie and are just looking to get out of the rat race and replace your income. Then this is the only place which will give you un-biased advice. You may make it work within a year of the cruise, but by the time you go on the second one you’ll be ready to do joint venture’s with people and you will certainly replace your income then!
If you are already in business then this will give you the skills and direction to transform your business into the very business you wanted it to be. Not the business you have now. Just imagine that, the business you want, not the business you have… Would that be worth you doing some research around the Caribbean?
So my final conclusion is that this cruise is for everyone who is dissatisfied with their current role in life and wants to either change it or make it a lot better. And of course it is also for the marketers who are already making it happen because it is the perfect place to make a lot more of it happen.
So even though this is called the Marketers Cruise, what this really is, is a cruise for people who want to move their lives and their businesses forward using online marketing strategies and partnerships to do it.
This is basically the best business advisory agency you can get. If you don’t believe me, then spend 10 minutes like I did searching for business advice online and see what comes up. Nothing tops this anywhere on Earth.
And all it costs is the price of a ticket and an airfare to cruise around the Carribean with some of the cleverest minds on the planet. The only problem is, that it seems too good to be true… Which is why I say, nothing I can say or write can justify how good this cruise is.
But there’s also the free giveaway’s which come with having gone on the cruise. This year I got stacks of books, software, invites to high priced seminars. Basically you can go on this cruise and get stacks of products for free. The deal is no one gives away free stuff, which they give away elsewhere, it has to be of higher value for their fellow marketers.
So if you were a newbie, then paying for this one cruise would give you access to more free products than you would want to buy… And of course you know they are good as no one would dare share rubbish on a cruise with experts on it.
Lastly, there is a Facebook group… Now I know this doesn’t sound impressive but wait. When you go on the cruise once you get access to this group, once in there, you’ll get all the freebies moving forward as well… And all the freebies that are on there NOW!
That’s years of free high value giveaway products. Plus you are in a Mastermind group of some of the smartest minds there are. I go to this group daily and if anyone is stuck they are just asking advice…
Now what would you pay to be part of a mastermind group who had all the solutions… This on it’s own is priceless but at least worth the price of the cruise alone each year.
The costs (or the investment)
Inside cabin per person $998
Outside cabin with balcony per person $1,298
There are other cabins, but I would suggest starting off simply.
I think it’s a 3 part payment plan as well for the next week or so.
$300 when you book, $300 in May and then the balance in September
This included as much food as you could possibly eat! One guy said to me, “I’m off to throw up, so that I can eat tomorrow!”
These prices mean if you come alone, you will be paired with someone. To have your own cabin, you double the price.
What I’ll earn if you come along will be two-fold. Firstly if I recommend 10 cabins then they will pay me $2,000. I have already promised 50% of that to my friendly neighbourhood copywriter if he writes me a sales letter which explains the benefits so that enough people come along. As for the other $1,000, I’ll use it to host a cocktail party at some point or take us all on an excursion somewhere.
I am not interested in the money, I am interested in delivering value to you.
But I do have an ulterior motive… As I always do. If you come along, wherever possible if you could mention me to those you meet it would be appreciated, and I may end up doing a JV deal with someone thanks to your favourable comments.

Please don’t let the understated sales copy they’ve put up stop you going on the cruise, it is at least as good as what I’ve said and much better than they promise. However, Robert Allen’s testimonial is a good one.
I look forward to chatting with you over a Strawberry Daiquri next year
PS If you do decide to go and buy through my link I’ll also be doing a webinar ahead of the cruise to help you make sure you get maximum value from attending. Just email me and tell me you booked and want to be on the webinar.
PPS If this hasn’t convinced you to go, I am going to be doing a webinar shortly with some friends from the cruise and we are just going to discuss the reasons for going and the benefits. If you would like to be kept informed of that just join my mailing list and also download the first 5 chapters of my new book.
