    I went to this seminar today, the company is storesonline.com The workshop had around 200 people and they where selling two packages one for 3500 and the other package for 5995. I can not believe how many people actually had signed up. There was about atleast 50 people that signed up. They were talking about basic Seo strategies and talking about ranking on page one on google. The speaker was talking about saving his best secret till the end. He was talking about google ad words and and how to use that to rank number 1 in three days. I could not believe how many people were clueless and stupid to actually pay them all this money. All the info was basic crap and people fell for it. There pitch was that you can have unlimited websites and wholesalers integrated to you website providing drop shipping. I went there to check it out and want to get some names for the wholesale companies they use. When a consultant wanted to talk to me and sign me up I told him I want to see the list and see if they where legit. He kept pushing on selling me but i told him how do you except me to fork out 6000 if i have not tested out the site. I told him would you buy a used car without test driving it. He got all mad and offended dumb as douche bag. I have been on this fourm for 3 months, and what i have learned here is worth 6000. I was wondering if anybody from houston would like to set up a work shop in houston and teach people how to really make money on line without robbing them like this. I told one guy sitting beside me that i am not going to pay 6000 and he looked at me like your a fool if you don't sign up for this limited offer. My main point is that workshops do work and offline marketing is gold, if people in these bad times are dishing out this type of money, it shows people are just looking to get rich quick but do not understand with little research they can learn all this for free. Thank you for everybody that had contributed to this forum and as a new internet marketer offline is a great way to make money.
    10k in a weekend is an awesome product and i think cash cow by david preston is excellent product. If people are struggling with online marketing start offline and you can make a very good living using there stratgies.

    workshops always hoard idiots...

    Not sure there's many speakers at all who are worth $5,000 - $10,000. Maybe a select handful that I could count on my fingers (10 max) but that's it. Hell for that much I might share how I've predicted some of Google's moves up to 3mo in advance... No joke.

    They actually hired the speaker but stores online was selling they package for 6000. I think if i find some locally, we can actually teach them how to make some decent money without having them to pay for 6000 for a product which is going to collect dust.

    I went to a seminar like that a few years back. The only reason I went was because they were going to show me how to get on the first page of Google for any keyword. The answer? Google Adword.

    Don't be surprised over people paying for such...because some will pay you to show them how to sneeze and keep their eyes open. You can get paid for virtually anything, only just offer it and see.

    They are not just in the USA they are all over with the same high pressure tactics selling to vulnerable people who just know no better, using the FREE seminar with a gift and supper as the bait, leading to an all day seminar at a reasonable cost to selling their restircted quantity (scarcity close) template web pages with overpriced hosting fees and support from badly trained telecom service staff. I have a friend who got sucked in bought the six site package (don't know hoe much he paid but it was alot) Only used one of the templates and found oit so restictive as to what he could do with it gave up losing his dollars Be warned do not go down that route you will learn far more on this forum from guys who want to help each other than from business such as storesonline who are only interested in the cash in your pocket.
