    I don't know if you people read his book but he recommends a scam that has been shut down since November 2007 called Feederfund. We all know that HYIP programs are all scams so why does he promote it, he is supposed to be more intelligent then us.

    RJ isn't so amazing after all. I purchased his guide and it really was nothing new and rather kind of scammy.

    of course he knew that. all that matters to him is that he gets his money. after all, he wouldnt be the rich jerk if he alerted people that its a scam, he'd be the poor nice guy.

    You know what, hes a short little sissy that had a good idea, I've met the team behind it. He deserves credit on great branding and the fact that he still sells that ebook years later and people still talk about it, how many other times does that happen?

    He was however a one hit wonder it seems, his membership site flopped when it was obvious they didnt really have any strategies besides knowing how to get peoples money with an in your face sales letter.

    That book is funny.

    He even talks about cloaking as if he is a black hat expert.

    ...He does know how to do effective marketing though...And that's what it's all about. If you know how to market something - anything, you will sell where others fail.

    When I write a sales page, every which way the sentence can be formed is tried. Words with the same meaning are tried, substituted and tried again. I am currently working on a website which has already taken over 12 months and it is nowhere near finished yet BUT, when it is finished, it will sell the product and make a fortune.

    The Rich Jerk might be a jerk, but I suspect he is rich and I have respect for his marketing. I don't like it, but I bet it works.

    I wonder if it is possible to be a good marketer without getting in touch with your "inner asshole"?

    Whenever I talk with salesmen (cars, bikes, appliances, computers, whatever), I always feel like I want to puke or punch them.

    Or maybe that is just because they are poor marketers...

    Rich Jerk also said in one of his blog posts that niche blogs/sites are shit... and it's a stupid thing to create niche blogs/sites.

    Well the idea is to get your money back + profit. HYIP does make you money if you arent a looser...

    Then you will meet big Bubba in jail, it is illegal to participate in a HYIP scam. Makes me wonder if the rich jerk will get in trouble with the authorities for doing that and also he can get in trouble for promoting a HYIP because that is illegal also.

    It's easy to call a program a HYIP or a scam, but when you're somebody like the Rich Jerk you have a good legal team to protect you.

    And there isn't anybody here that wouldn't trade places with the guy for his money. And he still makes lots of it. And his email list is one of the biggest and most responsive in the industry.

    Whether or not you like him or his style has nothing to do with the fact that they guy has got a good thing going. The membership site was a flop, but there was a lot going on behind the scenes with that one that would have ruined any product launch.
