    12 months ago I would have said Dan Kennedy (still like him) Gary Halbert (lucky enough to have known him personally), but now days I would have to say HaRRo, havokb8, and Pofecker. I am not saying this to kiss their asses, I just learn a lot from them.

    Jack Duncan
    Jason Flandlien
    "Big" Mike Kotsakolios

    All offer useful products that perform as advertised.
    All take excellent care of the members of their lists.
    Emails from them are NOT box clogging sales pitches.
    (They only write when they have something useful to say)

    The stuff in their emails could make excellent products
    all by themselves, and I'm getting them just for being
    on the list. Most lists are a pain. These are not.)

    John Delavera qualifies, WHEN he sends good stuff.
    Otherwise, you gotta wade through all the "buy my stuff" emails.
    But it's worth the hassle.

    I like Dan Kennedy's stuff.

    I also like Howie Schwartz's stuff.

    There is also a wealth of info on this forum, the trick is finding it.

    I agree with most already mentioned, especially of the old school variety. I'd also throw in Joe Sugarman, Ted Nicholas and Joe Karbo. Although Joe's books are shit, he still needs mentioning for being a bit of a God Father to Direct Mail.

    Of the self-proclaimed "guru" variety, I'd say Eben Pagan, Gauer Chaudry and Ryan Deiss seem to come closest to delivering on promises. But then I've only glanced over a few of their products and I don't purchase IM products anymore, as they seem to cause paralysis through analysis.

    I'd like to mention Yanik Silver as well, just simply because i've met the bloke and found him a properly nice guy. I can't say i've really sampled his products, but he did give me a $2k course on making money through the public domain a few years ago , it just never really interested me and is still wrapped up and boxed somewhere!

    I agree, BHW and my own research have taught me way more than any so called "Guru."

    There is a certain "guru" who likes to sell "Your Best Life Now" type courses for $500 a piece while claiming he is out to help the little guy learn how to make a living online through the "Power Of Technology." The more I watch him and what he does...the more I dislike him. :rant:

    Any one care to take a guess at who I am talking about? Shouldn't be too hard to figure out, he's a big name in the MLM industry right now....

    Ted Nicholas and Joe Sugarman are really great. Ted's "How to be a successful writer and self publisher" tape set is in my top 3 info products of all time.

    I haven't learned a whole lot from him, but I thank him daily for creating Squidoo! I guess if you count teaching me how to pitch an MLM...I would say Dean Kosage from WorldWide Dream Builders (Amway).

    The man knows how to sell a dream...no one can deny that.
