    I wanted to express how excited I am about speaking at the UnGagged.com conference this year. Really looking forward to it and wanted to first take the time to express my gratitude for being chosen to speak this November in Las Vegas! It's going to be off da chain!

    You may be noticing that this account is brand new but rest assured that I have been a member of BHW for a few years now. Since 2010 I believe. I have made several posts and have been thanked over 60 times. The posts I have made have been under an alias for privacy reasons.

    Now let me share a little about myself. My name is Mark Ress the proud father of 4 beautiful children (9, 15, 21, 22 years old) with my lovely wife Jen "Jubilee" Rey. I am a former gang banger, drug dealer and hustler who dramatically changed his life by becoming an Internet Marketer. The title of Internet Marketer may not be the correct one because as an Online Marketer I've participated in and made hundreds of thousands of dollars in the following areas:

    Affiliate Marketing | Amazon FBA Program | App Flipping | Article Marketing | Blogging | Book Publishing | Coaching Programs | Corporate Training | CPA Offers | Digital Book Publishing | Direct Marketing | Domaining | Drop Shipping | Email Marketing | Info-preneuring | List Building | Masterminds | Membership Sites and Continuity Programs | Mentoring | Mobile Marketing | Mobile Websites | Offline Gold | PLR Source Code Sales | Public Speaking | QR Code Marketing | Seminars | Site Flipping | Social Media | Social Networking | Syndication Marketing | Tele-Seminars | Video Marketing | Virtual Real Estate | Webinars |Web Design | Workshops

    There are probably very few areas of Online Marketing that I have not been involved with and made money in over the years but of all those areas there are probably three that are my favorite and probably most lucrative in my humble opinion:

    App and Web Site Flipping (Virtual Real Estate) - Creating Mobile Apps and web sites to flip for profits. If you need quick money this could be something you should focus on.

    Info-preneuring - Creating Books, Courses and Information Products to sell online and offline. There are those local business owners who will pay a premium to have you position them as a local expert in their industry and what better way then establishing credibility for them via books and courses.

    Affiliate Marketing - Promoting other people's products and services for a commission as well as launching my own affiliate programs for my own products. This has allowed us to do six figures in a single weekend due to leveraging other people's lists and customers. Great way for newbies to get into the game and cash in. There are always launches going on and new products to promote.

    These days I have really been focusing 80% of my time, effort and resources on Mobile Apps/ App Flipping and Info-preneuring/Publishing. Why you ask? Because they are, in my humble opinion, a few of the fastest ways to make good money. They allow me to have what one of my favorite mentors use to call "More Money Freedom and Time Freedom.". Plus you can incorporate Affiliate Marketing into Mobile Apps and Info-preneuring very easily. Even in the Offline Gold area (Local Business Marketing) you can incorporate an affiliate marketing campaign and do quite well.

    I have been invited to speak at several events which have had a focus on Affiliate Marketing, Driving Traffic, Offline Gold, Social Media Optimization, Virtual Real Estate and other related topics. I've often been given accolades as a speaker for my passion and for keeping it real meaning I tell it like it is without fear of repercussions from others in our field.

    One of the last Internet Marketing events I attended as a speaker was Ross Goldberg's last Masters Internet Marketing Seminar held in Tampa Florida back in 2009. I was the top closer and speaker at that event and very proud of it because I told it like it was. There were some other speakers present at the event who hated on me a little bit for things I said but I wasn't there for them. I was there for the attendees. I was there to try and help them succeed.

    Since speaking in Tampa way back in 2009 I've also spoken at my own events which I put on in Las Vegas and Ontario California during 2010, 2011 and 2012. Since then I've spoken at well over 100 local chamber events, Meetups, local business networking events, motivational seminars and work closely with gang bangers to try and give them some hope, a sense of direction and empower them through technology via our non-profit. I also sit on an Advisory Board for a local R.O.P. program, teach at the S.O.A.R. Academy and council troubled youth.

    Some of the folks I've worked with have been:

    Jay Abraham, Ryan Deiss, Howey Schwartz, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Martin Howey, Lisa Nichols, Sherman Hu, Ross Goldberg, Loral Langemiere, Tim Gorman and several others. I've also worked with a few Hollywood celebrities which you'd probably know should I mention their names.

    Coming from the concrete streets of East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley a person with my upbringing was lucky to have survived beyond 18 years old. By the time you were 18 to 21 most of your friends and a lot of your family members were dead or in jail. Working with computers, software and the Internet changed all that for me. Now my mission in life is to teach others what I do so that they can improve their lives.

    Currently with all the free time I have I go out to the local mountains and rivers gold prospecting and yes I am finding gold. It is fun and gets me outside back to nature. That way I am not staring at a computer screen gaining weight all day ;) I have spent hundreds on a sluice box, a high banker, pans and other equipment to find the ever elusive but pricey material. This is how I am currently defining fun with my family on outings hunting for gold at least once or twice a week. This is what working from home as an Internet/Online Marketer can afford a person. A lifestyle that is truly what you want and when you want it. Owning a few membership sites and continuity programs doesn't hurt either.

    I love to coach, mentor and train folks in what I've learned over the years. I don't have patience for those with the "victim mentality". I always tell people that if someone like me can make it in this industry then so can they. I went from zero to hero in my community and family. From the bottom to the top in my niches banking riches. This isn't a fairy tale but my real life.

    It IS possible for you to learn how to make money not just from home but from ANYWHERE! You can be in a Starbucks or on a sandy beach in Hawaii making good money online. All you need is the right mentor, tools and vehicle. It all begins with the choices you are currently making. Have they brought you to where you want to be?

    Change that today by registering for the conference coming up November 2014 in Las Vegas.

    Come say hi to me and maybe we could spend some time coming up with a plan for you to leave the conference with a blueprint on what your next steps should be once you get home.

    To Your Success,
    Mark Ress

    Well first post under this account. Hope it wasn't too long of a read. Just wanted to give everyone some background on myself as I am not as well known as some of the other speakers being that I spent the better part of my career as an "underground" marketer. I wasn't out in the public eye til around 2007 but have been in this industry for over 15 years. I started out as a graphic artist and web designer. I was one of the original members of Scott Kelby's N.A.P.P. (National Association of Photoshop Professionals).

    Since then I have done many things and hope to share what I can with all who are planning to attend the BHW Conference in November.

    I'm also going to be monitoring this thread when I can to answer any questions or maybe help those who need ideas to be able to fund their way to the BHW/IRL Conference.

    Also thanks for the kind words asap1.

    abhi007 a lot of what I listed crossed over on many occassions but what I was trying to do was list as many topics I could think of that I personally have learned and worked on through the years to give all those who are attending the BHW/IRL Conference a better idea of what they may like me to cover during my presentation/s.

    I have my own ideas and favorite subjects but wanted to give others the chance to choose or at least voice their opinions on what they'd like to possibly learn from me.

    In the over 15 years that I've been doing this I've gotten bored of one way or method of making money and would move onto others. That way I could stay ahead of the curve by being more well rounded.

    Sure now a days one can outsource it all but I personally feel you have to know a little bit about the topic or subject matter before outsourcing it to someone or you may not explain what outcome you expect correctly. I am not a control freak but have had my share of outsourcers not following my instructions correctly. I blame part of that on myself not explaining it thoroughly or in a manner they understood. Everyone learns differently. Some learn by hearing, others by watching and yet others by reading. So when working with my outsourcers I have to know what style of learning best suits them or I may end up with messed up campaigns which are damaging to the client's projects or my own.

    Hello I changed to a new account to just ask a few questions to see if your story is legit or complete bollox I respect you & see you as an inspiration to anyone of any social/race/financial status/ and whatever else the f..k I might have left out.

    I'm sure you can find out if you tried.

    Ok anything I say is really not critical of you in any way. I don't know anything abut you what so ever and if anything I say feels like a direct assault on you it's not.

    I have been pottering around now for over a year and the amount of complete bullshit that's out there is "sickening" and I'm yet to see anyone of any caliber or interest in helping anyone to learn fuck all online unless there is a "wait for it" course/group/membership/insider group/group insider/gold members/ I could go on.

    If your story is legit I don't get it ? You talk about "the hood" or whatever your trying to describe, you say "Coming from the concrete streets of East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley a person with my upbringing was lucky to have survived beyond 18 years old. By the time you were 18 to 21 most of your friends and a lot of your family members were dead or in jail. Working with computers, software and the Internet changed all that for me. Now my mission in life is to teach others what I do so that they can improve their lives.

    Currently with all the free time I have I go out to the local mountains and rivers gold prospecting and yes I am finding gold. It is fun and gets me outside back to nature. That way I am not staring at a computer screen gaining weight all day I have spent hundreds on a sluice box, a high banker, pans and other equipment to find the ever elusive but pricey material. This is how I am currently defining fun with my family on outings hunting for gold at least once or twice a week. This is what working from home as an Internet/Online Marketer can afford a person. A lifestyle that is truly what you want and when you want it. Owning a few membership sites and continuity programs doesn't hurt either.

    I love to coach, mentor and train folks in what I?ve learned over the years. I don?t have patience for those with the ?victim mentality?. I always tell people that if someone like me can make it in this industry then so can they. I went from zero to hero in my community and family. From the bottom to the top in my niches banking riches. This isn?t a fairy tale but my real life."

    This part confuses me if you don't like the VICTIM mentality why even mention this "
    I love to coach, mentor and train folks in what I?ve learned over the years. I don?t have patience for those with the ?victim mentality?."

    Yet you go on about your hard times growing up ? Listen everyone has a story I can tell you from my experience, I was in prison at the age of 15 but it's not something I'm going to display "like your sad story" unless my objective was to sell something. You say "I love to coach, mentor and train folks in what I?ve learned over the years. I don?t have patience for those with the ?victim mentality?.

    Then why the fu.. even mention "your sad story" if only to tweak emotions into buying something, to me it sounds like complete bullshit. Which if I'm right is sad and really makes BHW no better than the warrior forum. if you think I'm being excessive, show us how your going to help anyone other than taking their money.

    This is just my opinion I am not making big money online or anything like that or saying that I am an kind of expert/anything I am not trying to claim anything, but mere observations of the same old SHIT. Please take no offense as there should not be any to someone as helpfull as you.

    If I dont make it to the conference, I thought I would go ahead and ask a question =)

    What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who is 22, been in the online game for a few years now, doing well, but is about to graduate college?

    How about a real reply... If I decide to make the trek to LV in November, (from LA, it's only 280 miles) I would like to learn more about affiliate marketing and web design with Wordpress. I've made many websites using Dreamweaver or just plain ol' html, css and php, but for the life of me, I'm struggling with Wordpress! I'm fairly new to it, so maybe it's just a learning curve, but it's been a pain. Also, I would like to learn more about digital products, or publishing online. I currently sell a book that I wrote in 2003, but it's a very limited market for the niche I'm in. I was thinking about writing a new one that was more generic so it would have mass appeal. (Basically, it's a how to start a business book)

    I'm looking forward to November (if I do go) as I would love to talk in person with people more experienced than I.

    BHWconference has grown into something better, bigger & more essential to the success of your business.
    We've teamed up with some of the world's most influential and provocative thinkers and we're sponsoring the event which will truly help you maximise your earning potential. It's a unique, no holds barred UNconvention: UNGAGGED - hosted this year by Erika Napoletano.

    UNGAGGED will break rules. Rules you may not know existed but which have constricted every other SEO convention you have ever attended.
    At UnGagged, geniuses who know how to help you profit, will speak without fear of being told to STOP, by the corporates who think they're in charge.
    You'll hear stuff you won't hear anywhere else, ever again. (At least, not until the next UnGagged!)

    Things are changing. And we're excited to be part of the change.
    Looking forward to seeing you at UnGagged.

    I've seen more than a few posts where people say they're willing to help or coach, but I've yet to have any of you help or coach. I'm already with an MLM company, already have a decent foundation in place, but I need long term customers. If any of you are sincere about helping or coaching, please PM me or hit up squid1313 at Gmail.

    Hi Squid, UnGagged is a 3 day event full of cutting edge knowledge being shared with plenty of mentoring and coaching throughout. Plus don't underestimate the great value of rubbing shoulders or clinking bottles whilst networking. If you are particularly interested in hearing what Mark has to say come and listen to his session. For everyone wanting to progress in their career and take away stuff which will not be available anywhere else, UnGagged is UNmissable. If you want to stay at Caesars whilst attending the event there are only 170 of those attendee and stay tickets available. Come say hello at the BHW sponsored free bar Sat Nov 15 17.00-18.30.

    I'm making the trek from Australia.

    Really what i want to get out of this conference is get as many tips and ideas that i can to increase my profits as an affiliate marketer. So all the knowledge you can share surrounding this topic is of the highest value to me.

    looking forward to it :)

    Mark, your panels sound rad! Mobile app-making's been my latest obsession and it looks like you're dishing out some App Flipping / App Marketing knowledge at the conf.
