    This is interesting but has anyone noticed? Up until recently i didn't know that one of the most successful IM marketers out there, Andrew Fox, is from England. Not until i heard his video presentation. Thats one, but it seems the most successful IM marketers are all from England. Why is that? Isnt Clickbank a US outfit? English IM marketers all targeting US based outfits. Seems to me the English has the upper hand. Are there no successful American IM marketers? Im not talking about the ones who make thousands. Im talking about the guys who are making millions and seem to be dominating the world in affiliate marketing. The Brits are taking over. Im wondering how their funding this money too. How are the English taking millions out of the US? There is a limit on how much money you can trasfer out of the country. As Andres Fox said, he made 70k in one hit from CB. How did you fund this money and get CB to pay him out when you can only take so much out of the U.S. and he lives in the UK?

    How do you figure you can only take so much out of the US? You sign a W8 and you can take as much as you want as long as you take care of taxes on your end.

    Also, there are a LOT of american IM'rs.
    Tellman, reed floren, filisame (mike), brad callin

    etc.,etc.,etc.,

    Way too many really. Its annoying to get so many emails touting the same BS.

    That cant be right. I recently tried to send 10k out of the US to AU. I was told that that was the limit per year. No more money can be sent. Like to know how these people are doing it.

    If you are doing it "personally" at a bank then at 10k you hit the limit before you have to fill in some nonsense forms detailing WHY you're sending money wherever and basically telling them all your business so they can make sure you're not funding terrorism, money laundering etc.,

    If you're a business, you can get around these things.

    To mikie46!

    I don't know where you are getting your stats from in terms of the English dominating Internet Marketing. For one thing, you have mentioned only one person, and although I am not sure if Andrew Fox is living in England or not, he is certainly not FROM England. I can tell from his accent that he is either Scottish or Irish.

    And how about Frank Kern, Clayton Makepeace, Eben Pagen, Joel Comm, Yanik Silver, Joe Vitale, Mike Rassmussen, Alex Mendossian, Mike Filsaime. These guys are ALL Americans. All "Big Dogs" in the Internet Marketing World.

    So how can you say the English are dominating IM? . . . Beats me . . .

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Oh my gosh . . . where does that story come from ???

    Andrew Fox is not from England, but the United Kingdom. I understand he is live and well, and living in Bangor, Northern Ireland (Ulster).

    If you want to see Internet Marketing action I suggest you focus on Singapore and Malaysia.

    All the best

    Be seeing you

    Because this is the lounge you r3tard. Why hijack a thread with such a useless question.

    The UK will *********** once James Bond retires and focusses his resources completely on marketing.

    He's been outsourcing his labor to Indians lately.

    '...The REAL action is definitely out here in Asia.

    There are also some wicked website designs coming from Thai designers and they can be had for 1,000 baht per page (under $30)'.
