Frequently Asked Questions.
I'm a "Guru" and I know most everything about making money
online and I AM making money online ... so why is this service
worth anything to me?
know of anyone ("Guru" or otherwise) who is not interested in
discovering new and cost effective
promotional mediums that work!
me, if I could find another service out there that gave me $400.00 plus
worth of monthly advertising / promotional
benefits for less than the cost of a cup of coffee per
day ... I'D be jumping on it!
What if I want to "try" out a membership ... am I "locked"
in for any period of time?
not! As a matter of fact, that's why
I invite you to try it for just ONE month ... use my
benefits and if you don't make money, simply cancel! (and keep
amazing how many letters I've gotten from people who joined just to
see if I could deliver ALL the value that I've promised ... for the
money I charge. :-) Having said that instead of people canceling
(Over 80% of all my original members are still with me
since Nov 2003!) ... people send me comments like this:
"even though I'd heard that you were good ...
THAT ad was amazing."
seen an ad that you wrote with the headline saying something about
"Hippos". I have to tell you that even though I'd heard that you
were good ... THAT ad was amazing. It made me click through to
something that I'd seen a dozen times! Needless to say THAT convinced
friend, you could offer copywriting as a standalone service and make a
killing. Take it from someone who has hired copywriters
before! They charge fifty to ONE HUNDRED times what you charge
for your ENTIRE inner forum membership! Kudos to you! I'm glad I got in
before you raised your price!

How do I cancel?
simple email to me will do it. I will then email you back with
your cancellation confirmation.
What's the catch? Why is this service so cheap
compared to the "competition"? Standalone copywriting alone can
upwards of $50 to $125 per piece ... and that's just ONE of
There's no catch. The
fact is that if I make it affordable for
everyone ... more people can get involved. Therefore collectively
,,, I get compensated adequately and individually, you
get the information and services you need for next to nothing in cost.
So it's a
"WIN ... WIN" situation for me and YOU!
Yeah but the lowest rates that the competition offers is
$27.95 per month just for the kind of stuff that you say you cover in
to REALLY make money online" course! Surely your membership
can't be very valuable if you're pricing it at the price of less
that a good dinner!
Is that a
statement or a question? :-) Ok, please remember that "the competition"
is selling their service to "all and sundry", (everyone! :-) whereas
this whole project was initially born out of my desire to
help MY newsletter subscribers. These are the
people whom I've developed relationships with over the years. You might
say it's my way of giving back.
said that, everyone (friends and associates) seems to
feel that I am giving too much away for what I'm
charging. Therefore I will be raising the price (this does
not affect current members) to its final rate
of $39.97 per month any day now!
"I really enjoy your service"
I really enjoy your service and feel that my TIF Membership is money
well spent. Thanks Colin for all your help.
Why do I have to be a S.T.F subscriber to
be a T.I.F (TheInnerForum.com) member?
simple? This was originally created strictly for current S.T.F
subscribers to help them out even MORE in their online money making
efforts. In any case when you see what you get for FREE for being an S.T.F
subscriber, you'll want to subscribe to the S.T.F!
Yeah, but why do I have to stay a S.T.F
subscriber in order to be able to sign up and continue as a
don't want to compromise the integrity of my S.T.F database.
Believe it or not, this decision is for the benefit of YOU as
a T.I.F member. Remember as a member you get discounted
advertising (and chances to win FREE advertising) to the S.T.F
would that be worth if everyone came over to T.I.F and there was no one
left at the S.T.F? What would advertising to the S.T.F be
worth to you, the T.I.F member then? That situation might be
great for me ... but for you ... not so great.
Does this mean that as a S.T.F subscriber I will now get
bombarded with advertising?
all! As a matter of fact the S.T.F format does not change in
the least. Currently as an S.T.F'er you only receive two SOLO
ads per week (with the option of not receiving any at all!) for a total
of eight per month. It just means that now those SOLOS might
be coming from a T.I.F member so the amount of ads that
S.T.F'ers receive remains the same.
Count me in as a "TIFFER" for a long, long,
I'm already a member and have locked in my price, I can afford to tell
you this. :-) You're really NOT a Guru! Why the hell else would you not
be charging 10 times more than what you do? I just had a Top
Sponsor in your ezine that got 142 clicks!!! ONE HUNDRED AND
FORTY TWO RESPONSES FOR A TOP SPONSOR?????? That's a 1.42% CTR!
(Maybe it's because YOU wrote it for me? smile!)
average Solo nowadays pull on average between 1% to 2%. (Or at least
that has been MY experience for Solos to other lists) The best part is
that I paid $18.75 for the top sponsor!!!! I can't wait for my Solo to
run next week! Count me in as a "TIFFER" for a long, long, long
Solomon. Manchester. UK.
So how does this whole "process" work?
simply ... when you click the order link ... you'll be taken to my
order page where you can place your order for your membership. After
your payment goes through, you will automatically be taken to my "Thank
you" page. There you will immediately get a valuable
membership gift. (yes ... a surprise gift I didn't even mention on
the preceding page ... even MORE of a reason to sign up now!)
"Thank You" page will NOT have your enrollment information. However
just filling in a form on that page with your name and email
address will instantly send you your "Welcome letter" and
During this process your identity will be automatically matched to
your identity remitted to me with your payment information. This
is just a verification measure on my part ... you know ... to prevent
any "accidental" unauthorized memberships! :-)
Keep in mind that you
are not gaining access to a "membership area".
There is no need for one because of how this service is set up.
yours is the ONLY service which ..."
you know that yours is the ONLY service which even offers
"Optimization" of Solos as a free extra? Where do you find the
time? I have to say ... I've only been with you for two months so far
but I am yet to find ANY service that comes CLOSE to yours in value,
affordability (And I'm a cheapskate!) and RESULTS!
Argonis. Sault Ste Marie.
Despite what you say ... I think you're a Guru! (smile)
How and when does my subscription/membership
start ... and how soon do I get to take advantage of these benefits?
membership is in force immediately upon joining. Therefore you can take
advantage of your advertising benefits as a member immediately
and at any time after enrollment.
example ... you will gain immediate access to my top
performing Solo ad sources ... you can immediately submit a
request for copywriting, optimization etc. (typically you get your ad
written within 24 to 48 hours of your request)
your "How to REALLY make money online" course modules will be
emailed to you on the SECOND and LAST SUNDAYS of every
When do I get billed?
get billed at the time of ordering/joining and then every 30 days from
the date that you ordered/joined, unless you cancel of course!
Why is there a "No refund"
am not offering refunds because of the nature of a subscription /
monthly payment model. It's kind of like any other subscription or
monthly payment service that you're currently paying for. Eg. If
you decided to switch cable TV companies ... you would not get a refund
of your monthly payments that you paid up to that point! :-) However
remember, you can cancel at any time without any questions.
I enrolled at the
$29.97 (now $19.97 for now) price
and six months down the road, you decided to raise the price ... will my
price go up?
Any "price increase" will be offered to new subscribers since people
who are already "in" ... have locked in their fees.
(Regardless of if they got in on a discount rate or not)
Whatever rate you paid to join ... is the rate that you will continue
to pay for the duration of your membership, therefore your fees
will never go up!
As a T.I.F (TheInnerForum.com) member ... how
will you know if I'm maintaining my S.T.F subscriber
hee! Like I'm gonna tell you that! Just be assured that I have
ways to verify such things! :-)
Suppose someone cancels their membership ...
and then tries to get re-signed up as a T.I.F member for free ...
because they have the "Thank You" page Url ... how do you prevent
:) The "Thank You" page does NOT have your enrollment information.
This is specifically to prevent any unauthorized enrollments. Again
... be assured that I have certain checks and balances in place that
will immediately notify me of that situation.
Will I be receiving classified ads, articles
and other "typical newsletter stuff" within the course portion of my
... the course portion of this
service is just gonna be HARD CORE "How to REALLY make
money online" information from me to you ... period. It will
therefore be more of an ongoing, online marketing course as opposed to
a typical newsletter or ezine.
you answer emails promptly ..."
don't you have an affiliate program for this service?? With all the
fantastic stuff that you offer I could sell the heck out of this and
make some serious ADDITIONAL dough for myself! I am so excited
about this service that I can't stand it! First of all ... you are a
very warm and personable guy, (thanks for taking the time to answer ALL
my silly questions on the phone) you answer emails promptly AND your
service is fantastic value. I have paid more than what you charge
monthly for such "services" as safelist memberships etc ... and their
results SUCK compared to yours. THANK YOU AGAIN!

I'm kinda confused by the "FREE
copywriting for ONE Solo ad per "calendar" month for ANY product or opportunity that I'm promoting"
benefit. What is
this really? An ad to the S.T.F database?
is any ad that you may want to use to promote a product or
service that you might be promoting ... to ANY advertising
source or database. (Mine or otherwise) For instance ... suppose you
were an affiliate for XYZ product and you intended to buy a SOLO ad to
would write the actual ad text for you ... it's as simple as
that. You just tell me the product or service ... show me
the site that you want your visitors to go to and I will write/create a
SOLO ad that "sells the click" to that site! You can then use
that ad where ever you want to.
TWICE what I've paid ..."
I'm flabberghasted Colin! Your solo ad is awesome! It's worth TWICE
what I've paid for your InnerForum membership.... and I get all those
other benefits too!
Regarding the "FREE copywriting
for ONE Solo ad per *calendar* month" benefit ... suppose I don't need you to write an
ad for me in a given month ... can I accumulate these offers ... in
other words ... say in November I didn't need to have you write one for
me ... can I have you write two ads in December?
Do you mean ... can you "bank" or "carry forward" this
benefit? Unfortunately not. The reason for that is very simple.
The very reason for restricting the number of "Tiffers" to 200 in the
first place, is because there are only so many ads that I can write
in any given month. I figured about 200 ads.
Can you imagine a scenario where say ... 30 members carried
over my offer from one given month to another? I'd have to write 230
ads that next month! So the short answer is ... you only get ONE
copywritten ad per "calendar" month regardless of if you
take me up on it or not. :-)
I keep reading "every calendar
month" for a lot of the
benefits. What do you mean by that?
Well, "calendar month" means within one of the twelve months
of the calendar as opposed to me saying "every month" from the time
of subscription. For instance ... let's say you joined on November
7th ... and you get a SOLO ad copywritten for you ... every calendar
That means that you can get one written in November, one in
December, in January etc. I just didn't want the possibility of
people getting confused and thinking that they're getting those
benefits monthly ... meaning every "30 days" from the start
of their membership.
It seems to me as if this is an advertiser's
dream. I mean even if you're a "Guru" and you know everything
about making money online ... just the monthly advertising benefits
from this membership alone are obviously worth much more than what
you're charging. So why are you not charging more for it? I'M
that's true ... but not only "Gurus" want or need to advertise!
This way ... any member (whether a "newbie" or a "Guru") can
benefit. Besides if I charged the $350.00 plus monthly that
the service is really worth, only "Guru's" might be able to
afford it! :-)
The only reason I joined your service is
since you're a self proclaimed "Straight Talker", I'll be frank. The
only reason I joined your service is because of the unheard of member
discount on your Solo ads! Being a former advertiser of yours and
paying MUCH more for a Solo than what you're offering TIF members, it
just made sense since the membership cost PLUS the member price for a
Solo was still not as much as I paid in the past for one of your
Solos. Imagine my amazement when I found out that your other
services like the copywriting turned out to be fantastic ... and
believe me I know how much THAT costs!
Do I really need to spend
money online in order to make money? What about all the
freebie programs out there? How do I know that your service is not just
another way to get my money?
I'm willing to bet that you've already joined a bunch of the "freebie"
programs and you've never made any money. So at the risk of sounding
like a "smart ass" ... let me say this. If you still believe
that you can make money without spending any money, look at how
much you've made thus far by going the "freebie" route!
the real question is ... how much is being able to finally make money
online really worth to you? I would bet that
it's worth much, much, much, much more than the
(now $19.97 for now) that you're gonna pay!
I have spent tons of money online and I'm
still yet to make any! What's up with that? Why should I spend even
more on your service?
there are many, many people out there all selling "secrets" to making
money online. Unfortunately it's not enough to realize that in
order to make ... you have to spend.
key is that you have to know "where" to spend it.
THAT'S where the problem occurs. Even people who are willing to
spend in order to make, (I prefer to call it investing in themselves)
get disillusioned when they do so and still don't see results.
the other hand I know where to spend to get results.
That's the reason I've had the luxury of being able to work from home
full time ... at my own pace ... on my own time ... without a boss etc
... for the last seven plus years. So the advertising
benefits that you're gonna be getting from my service is where I
myself spend my money!
it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure
originally found you while searching for effective Solo advertising in
the Directory of Ezines where your newsletter is listed. I noticed that
a Solo to the S.T.F was $100. However the link on your advertising page
offering me a discount led me here. Ok, it doesn't take a rocket
scientist to figure out that $29.97 (membership cost) plus $56 (Solo
cost for TIF members) still is not as much as the $100 that is your
"regular" Solos cost! Long story short ... thanks for making available
this opportunity ... your Solos rock! "Chappy" Billings. New Orleans.
I hope the above answers all your questions ... if not feel free to
these questions were actually asked by the people who I ran this whole
project by ... before it went live. So if some questions
seem as if they're coming from a "devil's advocate" point of
view ... it's because I asked them to hit me with their best shots. :-)
since even without the "course portion", the membership's advertising
benefits alone are worth over $400 monthly, most members of this
level could care less about the "How to REALLY make money online"
course. I found that really interesting.

join now to make sure that you get in before the 200 member limit
is reached ... and/or the price is raised to its final rate
of $39.97 per month. This is probably gonna happen
any day now!
