    Hi Everyone,

    I just joined the IM Leadsership program which includes Apprentice 3.

    Any other members in here.

    Why did I join because I what a lot of Howies stuff on here and decided
    he is the the one guy that operates in a style that aligns with how
    I like to operate.

    PM any other Howie or ex Howie students.

    So what did you think of IM Leadership? I'm totally intrigued by the idea of it. Is it worth the price tag and have you made money with it?

    I think Howie could charge a lot more for a method like this. I also think that whoever gets on board and has the initiative to go forward with what Howie teaches will become quite successful.

    IM leadership is just getting going.
    We are all busy with Apprentice 3 at the moment.
    Some good calls and information is being shared.

    I give it 2 thumbs up so far!

    I like Howie style, but I have a bad experience when I first purchase his product "black hat is back" so didn't look back since than, keep us update with more :)

    It's a great concept and one that can easily be applied by anyone. If you know how to do your keyword/market research and how to manipulate Google for rankings, you can easily get any small business to pay prime for your services.

    So far the free videos have been pretty friggin' good. He has a way of finding these odd avenues to make money and exploiting the hell out of them.

    That said, I'm not going to shell out $1k+ for anything online. Ever. That's way too much cash.

    That pretty much sums up my feelings as well.

    I don't doubt that there's some value in this. It's hard to quantify how much value though, and if you can really turn around and make full time income on this, it's worth every penny. But damn, $1300 is a LOT of money.

    I second that. Because the primary reason of why small and medium business owners know nothing about it is, they are too absorb in their business that makes them the 'expert' in their field.

    And since getting online is the way to expand their reach, they naturally want another expert to be onboard with them.

    That's how I see it. And the good thing about this concept is, you can be exclusive as compare to those SEO/PPC company with overhead.

    My 2 cents ranting/worth.......:amish:

    I'm currently in Howie's apprentice program and whilst I like his style and his training has given me a few "AHA" moments, there is nothing amazingly new within his program that anyone who has been around IM for a decent ammount of time wouldn't already know or find quite easy to pick up. The major thing for me would be the outsourcing tips and how to organize outsource staff.

    As for IM Leadership. Why pay $1000+ for the same info that can be found for under $20 over at "offlinegold.com" (or am I missing something?!).

    p.s and there's a whole lot of info right here on this forum!! =)

    I had never heard of offlinegold.com before and at $20 price tag, there is a hell of a lot less investment and risk involved, so I'm going to get it. Thanks for the tip!

    And I agree with you, there's a hell of a lot of info on this forum, it's amazing. Howie's methods can all be found on here under different names or slightly different variations.

    Not that I want to dis Howie, I've learned some things from him for sure but I'm not sure the upfront investment on these expensive courses is the best way for a newbie to get started. He's got methods that work though, and he really has a good "marketing mindset" that you can learn a lot from. Dude is smart. With some time and motivation though, almost everything he says can be found on the forum here.

    But if you're a newbie, go ahead and get on his mailing list because he will give you some great free nuggets of info to get you pointed in the right direction.

    Not to sound like an ass kisser but I buy EVERYTHING Howie puts out. Why? Because I always learn something from him. Even the smallest tip can be the difference between $200 and $2000 in earnings. I always felt if somebody's stuff is good enough for us to download and use it's good enough to pay for. I'm just getting started with IM Leadership but I'm sure I'll earn my money back off it.

    In all honesty Howie is not the person you get to speak to unless you decide to attend his seminars and speak with him face to face..and even then he finds himself busy within that timeframe.

    I've seen whats taking place inside the IMLeadership however I strongly believe that they are not ready to take on so many programs at once.They have section in the forum where you can do JV's with other people that are members and the concept is still the sameonly that this time some project gets to share how you can go about acquiring new customers as an Internet Marketing Consultant.

    I joined IM Leadership because I have learned a lot from Howie and what to learn how to build a system the right way with structure.

    Right now, things are kind of unorganized in IM Leadership due to having the Apprentice 3 running at the same time. Our weekly calls keep getting canceled or delayed with lots of technical problems. Howie has a great group of Project Manager, who seem to have a lot of experience and answer a lot of questions in the forum. Just really look forward to it being more organized (back to that structure thing).

    Did not get on board in time for the Apprentice 3. I have access to Apprentice 2 Voyer and wish that I had the ability to have a Project Manager work with me (as the Apprentice 3 guys do) to make sure I am on track with the right tasks.

    Would like to hear what other people are experiencing through their IM Leadership membership.

    Not dissing ANYONE here . . . .but. . . . isn't the FIRST thing we learn, in IM, the fact that the BIG pot of gold actually lies in YOUR OWN PRODUCT CREATION !.

    Do the 'goo roos' not throw us tid bit after tid bit, and make us PAY AND PAY!

    think about it guys - one year in the real world is the equivalent of 2 MONTHS on the net! - Are you going to, honesty, dish out $1300.00 ? for what will, essentially be obsolete in about two months time. No sooner had the guy rele4ased app 3an then . . . whola. . . IM leadership pops up ! (huh 0 I thought. . . I just bought. . . thats right. . . app 3 @ xxx $$$!). Only to be "SUPERCEDED" by IM leadershit

    Yet another flash in the pan, another one hit wonder and another POT OF GOLD for the guy WHO MAKES THE PRODUCT!!

    End of Rant

    truthfully though, why would ANYONE want to pay for yet another method when ALL you need is sitting right here, waqiting for you over in the Download department

    Beats me - some people are just compulsive purchasers

    Regards (this is from a person who is, yes new, TO THIS FORUM, but an OOOOLLLD hand at IM )

    Think, guys, think - thats how they do it - they pump out product after product after product after. . . . . . . . .

    I have been waiting to see someone else release a similar program like Howie's IM leadership at a much lower price point [$997/497/197]. It's only a matter of time.
