The Secret to Beating the System Without Going to Jail

The Secret to Beating the System without Going to Jail and the Inside Scoop for Obtaining FREE CASH


7:06 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:

My friends and business associates call me a “miser”.

That’s fine; it only means I’m in good company. 

Some of the wealthiest entrepreneurs on the face of the planet were “misers”, including Sam Walton, John Paul Getty, John D. Rockefeller, Sam Zell and the list goes on and on.

The truth is….I discovered ways to “beat the system” (legally)… without the risk of going to jail.
What’s more, I’m grabbing mind-blowing discounts on all kinds of products and services and I’ve found ways to obtain free cash…without the usual gimmicks and tricks!

It’s real simple…..

I’ll show you how to save a boatload of money on hundreds of products and services you’re probably using right now.

I realize “saving money” and “penny pinching” is B-O-R-I-N-G…..with a capital B!

Most entrepreneurs want to know how to MAKE MONEY as fast and easy as possible…
As for me – “penny pinching” is for the birds! But grabbing huge discounts can be as valuable as millions of dollars in CASH.

Here’s what I mean….

I have several friends who are millionaires and a few of them are in the multimillionaire class…. But most of them OVERPAY for everything. 

They didn’t mind overpaying for travel, insurance, real estate, luxury products, and businesses when the markets, economy and real estate were booming.

But today, some of them are frantically reducing expenses, employees, and downsizing their businesses…..not to mention trying to find the best possible deals on stuff.
It’s almost comical. 

My good friend TL said, “I saved over $420 on this stupid thing”. He was practically doing back-flips by the pool he was so happy. (I gave him my secret for refurbished electronics).
The fact is…. my friends were “misers” like me when they started out. 

But somehow they became “invincible” when the big money started rolling in hand over fist.
One of my (very) rich friends, PS., said the following to me at dinner recently (with a huge, toothy grin):

“Marc, you were right. The economy, real estate and market tanked. And you prepared ahead of time. Have you written down your “miser tactics” and strategies so other entrepreneurs can benefit”?

Well… the good news is I put my closely guarded “miser tactics” into a new program…and I’ll show you how to get it in a second.

But know this…..I’m a millionaire miser…and proud of it…..because I know how to get HUGE discounts and I know where to go for money for ventures, deals and projects…not to mention FREE CASH just for asking!

My incessant drive for the deepest discounts and getting stuff dirt cheap – (and free)… drives people crazy!

But you’ve got to admit…… scoring deep discounts is a big deal….and especially in this economy!

The stuff I reveal in my program is almost too good to be true.

But believe me…..all of the tactics, strategies, methods and resources in my new “miser manual” are 100% true, accurate and legitimate.

On top of that, my discoveries are not based on some stupid theory! 

You get “theories” by going to college, working for the government or hanging out with “pseudo” (trust fund) millionaires.

The tactics and strategies in my e-book program are based on personal experience, and the experiences of my wealthy friends and partners.

This probably sounds like a sales pitch. But it’s NOT!

I honestly believe my program will be a huge asset to your business, life and ventures and especially in THIS ECONOMY.

Heck….I even developed a strategy for saving money on building a house! I built a dream house in an exclusive enclave on the coast of Maine for a small fraction of what most people pay.
On top of that, there’s NO mortgage or liens and the house and property is paid in full.

How to Get Anything You Want at HUGE Discounts – and Sometimes FREE!

My tactics in action recently for scoring big time discounts:
·        Caterers. I saved more than $2200 on catering for a family reunion at an exclusive mountain retreat in central Vermont.  Tactic: I promised the caterer 3 new clients, or free publicity in the local newspapers and websites.

·        Wine. There’s a monopoly at your local grocery store when it comes to wine! Heck, some states have BANNED the purchase of wine online. My tactics for buying wine could save you 20-60%...and it’s not Sam’s Club or Costco! Tactic: Buy unopened wine with damaged labels or discontinued win from distributors! You can even shop at “mega stores” like Applejacks in Denver CO. These are wine “superstores”. Tactic 2: You can even buy wine in bulk from overseas vineyards.

·        Debt Settlement. Most of the so-called debt settlement companies have a cozy relationship with credit card companies and banks. On top of that, debt settlement companies are getting sued left and right because of sneaky fees and other things. There are legitimate, low cost debt settlement services.  It’s not a disgrace to need some help once in awhile. Tactic: CareOne has a great track record and could save you big bucks.

·        Outlet Malls. I’ve snatched savings of $500, $1000, $2000 (and more) at outlet malls and a few online retailers.  Tactic: Buy damaged or returned products.

·        Extended Warranty Scams. Manufactures make a killing on “extended” warranties! This is a major scam. If the product is made right you won’t need a warranty. Tactic: Don’t buy extended warranties and save a bundle.

·        Special Membership Clubs You’ve heard about the “alphabet clubs” like AARP, NRA and AAA. Are these membership clubs worth joining? I don’t join “special clubs” because I can get deals without them.  But check my blog for a few of the winners.

·        Insurance - Health, Life, Car & Home. This is a biggie! Insurance will cost you a fortune over your lifetime unless you know how the game is played. I received a comprehensive homeowner’s policy from an A+ provider on one of my homes ($350k value) for less than $310 per year.   Tactic: Increase deductible to maximum level. Never buy insurance from an agent or insurance salesman. Do your own research and only insure reality.

·        Auto Leases. I found a 2008 Toyota Prius Hybrid for a friend for less than $125 per month. And get this….there was no down payment, no closing costs, no fine print and the seller actually paid him to do the deal! Thousands of cars and deals are available: Tactic: LeaseTrader.com Tactic 2: Go direct to people upside down in their lease…offer to take it off their hands.

·        Magazines and Newsletters. You can pick up magazines and newsletters at phenomenal discounts and sometimes absolutely free. Tactic: Write to the publisher direct (and use the correct contact name). Request a “free trial subscription” to their publication. Some publishers will throw your letter or postcard (my favorite) in the trash, but most won’t!

·        Vitamins, Herbs and Natural Supplements. Local supermarkets and health food stores mark these babies up 40-90% (or more). A regional chain in New England marks some supplements up 145%! Tactic: Lowest prices on the planet can be found at LuckyVitamin.com and SwansonVitamins.com Tactic 2: Buy herbs, vitamins and supplements in bulk – make your own!

·        Fitness Clubs and Spas. Fitness clubs and spas have been hit especially hard in the current economy. Never pay the retail “street” price.  Tactic: Write to the owner (not the manager) of a fitness club or spa in your area. Enclose a check for $100. Propose 60% off the first year membership fee 40% thereafter…you’ll be shocked by the response (in a good way)

·        Cosmetic Procedures. If you’re willing to travel you can receive unheard of discounts on facelifts, Botox treatments, lip augmentation, breast jobs and neck lifts at savings of 30-60% (or more!). A simple Botox treatment could run you $500-$1000. Tactic 1: You can get the same treatment for $250 at Arriva in Costa Rica. Tactic 2: Go to a dermatologist school in your area – American Academy of Dermatology  

·        Premium Channels. You can get most premium channels on cable and satellite TV by simply asking the right people at the right time. I received several years of HBO, Showtime HD, Starz and others absolutely free.  Tactic: Write a snail mail letter (or FedEx is better) to a senior manager at your cable company or satellite provider. Simply ask for 6 months free to “test” the service.  Tactic 2: Lather, rinse, repeat..I’ve done this several times over the past 6 years (different senior contacts)  

·        Vacation Rentals. If you fall for vacation rental “ploys” or timeshares you’ll get burned every time. I’ve received mind boggling discounts on homes, condos, townhouses, apartments and houseboats over the last 10 years. I use these services so you know they’re legit! Tactic: VRBO.com, HomeAway.com, and GreatRentals.com

·        Landscaping. What happened to neighborhood kids charging $25 to do the job? I’ll show you how to get it back! Tactic: Post a large professionally designed sign on your lawn or property that reads “Mow This Lawn for $25 CASH – Our Equipment” – list your phone number and/or website. Believe me…you’ll get calls.

·        Online education and instruction. I’m discouraging my kids from going to college. I’m NOT a bad parent. The educational system and pricing is a joke. Colleges are bloated with debt, tenured professors (who don’t teach), over priced books and degrees you can online in half the time for a quarter of the price. You can obtain degrees and certification at a fraction of the cost. Tactic: Gary North’s exclusive chapter enclosed!      

·        Windjammer cruises. A windjammer cruise can change your life. But don’t settle for the “dock price”. A recent day sail on the historic Schooner Mary Day only cost $45. The “dock rate” is $225. Tactic: Write to the boat’s captain or owner in advance – tell them you’re on a tight budget or whatever
                                                   
·        Online Stock Trading. Most “discount” brokers are a joke. You’ll never get any deals after the first trade with these guys. Today you can get every online trade for as low as $3…all the time! Tactic: SogoTrade.com

·        Computers, Laptops, PDAs and software Forget about BestBuy, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Costco. Granted, you’ll find deals from time to time at these places. But they don’t offer high performance electronics. In other words, check the exact specifications and the price, and then go to my source. I’m talking hundreds of dollars here. Tactic: Newegg.com, Amazon.com (I’m not kidding) and BuyersEdge.com.

This is only the tip of the iceberg!
My new “miser manual” is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
It reveals my insider tactics, discoveries, strategies and secrets for “beating the system” and obtaining anything you want at DEEP discounts…and in some cases FREE.

Before I go any further…..I’ll reveal one of my secrets for demanding huge discounts and deals.

It’s called negotiation.

Don’t worry; I’m not going to bore you a lame study of “Negotiation Tactics 101”.

But get this……

Most people never get what they want in life or business because they’ve never understood the art of negotiation.

Negotiation can make you very, very rich.

Billionaire negotiation tactics can save you more money than you ever imagined.

Billionaire Negotiation Tactic Anyone Can Use

Most self-made billionaires are master negotiators.

Most billionaires would probably say negotiation is one of the main reasons they’re so filthy rich.

I realize negotiation is required for every transaction or deal.

If you walk into a grocery store or gas station negotiation tactics are useless. These businesses could care less if you buy anything or not. Pay retail or get lost!

Negotiation only works when you have a willing party…or “qualified prospect”.

If you wanted to buy an automobile from a private party….he or she would most likely be a willing party.

The same is true if you buy a house, land, services, a business or other products.

And so…it’s important to understand the foundation of negotiation which is:

You need a willing party or “qualified prospect” for this tactic to work.

Here’s the tactic in all its glory…..

Always Be Willing to Walk Away!

Most people are unwilling to walk away when they want to buy something. In most cases they will always pay more a product or service than the item is worth in a current market.

What’s more, a lot of people “say” they’re willing to walk away from a deal and they may believe it on some level.

But in reality…..most people are unwilling to walk away when they really want something.

I refer to this as a paradox.

A paradox is a statement or concept that contains conflicting ideas. In logic, a paradox is a statement that contradicts itself.

In everyday language, a paradox is something which seems absurd or contradictory, and yet is true.

For example, the best way to win in the game of soccer is stay away from the ball! Let this truth sink in for a second.

Have you ever watched youngsters play soccer? All of the kids on both teams chase the ball up and down the field.

But if just a few kids stayed away from the ball, more kids would be open to shoot the ball and score!

The same is true in professional soccer. The key to winning games is to have fewer players chasing the ball!

In other words…spread out and stay away from the ball!

The same is true in negotiation.

You always need to be willing to walk away from a deal ….as if you could care less.

Granted, you obviously want the thing you’re negotiating for….it is obvious to you and the other party.

On the popular TV show House Hunters the real estate broker usually suggests to prospective buyers to avoid “offending” sellers by submitting an offer that’s too low.

That’s absolutely ridiculous!

In fact, it’s almost criminal advice.

If a seller is “offended” or “insulted” by low ball offers they’re in the wrong market or business…period!

If they don’t want low ball offers then don’t put your house on the market.

The mistake most home buyers make is they’re unwilling to walk away from a deal.

In many cases, someone in the deal has his or her “heart set” on a particular home…and they’re unwilling to walk away from it.

Therefore, buyers end up spending a lot more than they need to.

When I’m buying a property… I rarely use a real estate broker.

My preference would be a high paid, seasoned real estate attorney with investment personal investment experience.

What’s more, I’ll typically pre-qualify a boatload of deals before I indentify a legitimate prospect or candidate.

Most deals never make it to the table because they are unqualified.

On top of that, I’ve “offended” thousands of people in my business life because of so-called “low ball” offers….cry me a river!

The fact is….most of my deals have been profitable.

I lose money from time to time…but not very often.

Sometimes you’ll be willing to pay the full price for something…no matter what it is.

But I’m talking about situations and deals where negotiation is required…which is 80% of the time.

And so….in negotiating deals you must always be willing to walk away.

If people are desperate enough to make a sale they won’t let you get away…and you’ll get what you wanted….and in most cases at deep, deep discounts!

Your Slice of a Multi-Trillion Dollar Pie


Reprinted by permission
The League of Power


A Tricky Way to Grab Your Slice of a Trillion Dollar Pie without the Usual Red Tape and Headaches


7:22 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:

There's no denying it. Insurance is a multi-trillion-dollar industry.

The good news is you and I can make money in this market.

And the best part is…. you don’t need a retail agency on Main Street; mountains of red tape or disgusting sales calls!

On top of that, with the opportunities I’ll show you today you won’t need a license or special certification or heavy tech skills!

Here’s how it works in the real world…….

First… this tidbit which might surprise you….

The best time to launch an insurance company is immediately following a major catastrophe

I know it sounds crazy - but it’s true.

My good friend, DL, is a multi-millionaire. 

DL generated almost half of his net worth through insurance and insurance related products. 

DL wasn’t a life insurance salesman mind you….he did it with good old fashioned home, car, renter, disability and mortgage insurance!

DL gave me a true insider’s perspective on making money in this market.

Here’s the deal……

Immediately following a major disaster or catastrophe, smaller insurance companies are usually forced out of business because of monumental claims from customers. By “smaller” I mean insurance companies with less than $50 million in policies.

The entire insurance business model is built on the low probability of having to pay out claims. 

But large companies know how and when to protect the company’s assets when it comes to being forced to pay out claims. Some of it has to do with buying options in the financial markets and retaining top level “seasoned” adjusters.

Warren Buffett is the second-wealthiest person on the planet (according to Forbes Magazine). His insurance and re-insurance companies endured huge losses in New York after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. 

Buffet’s companies recouped their losses within six months following 911!

His companies also enjoyed a nice profit windfall shortly thereafter because of a four-fold increase in premium charges!

Most of the small insurance companies, brokers and middlemen were not so resilient. 

But you don't need massive start-up capital or millions of dollars in "reserve" like Warren Buffet (to cover the possibility of claims) to be successful in the insurance market. 

All you need is a computer and access to the Internet.

Opening a neighborhood insurance agency is not a great fit for most entrepreneurs. 

The thought of selling insurance over the phone or face-to-face makes most people cringe. 

On top of that, a bricks-and-mortar business can have substantial overhead costs. 

In addition, insurance companies typically have boatloads of regulations, fees, licenses, certifications, and code requirements.

But there's another way to make money in the insurance business….actually, three ways. 

Let me show you…

Promoting Insurance Affiliate and Lead-Generating Programs
 
One of the easiest ways to make money in the insurance market these days are with affiliate and pay-per-lead programs. You can easily manage affiliate and lead-generation programs over the Internet.

An affiliate is a middleman. 

As an affiliate, you earn a percentage of sales in exchange for promoting or marketing a product or service.

A lead-generation program collects specific information for a company - in this case, on a website - for a fee.

Here's are eight insurance "affiliate programs" you can start promoting on the Internet immediately and get paid for leads: 

Ø GEICO (highly recommended)
$6-$10 per lead.
Ø US Insurance Online
Commissions of $3-$8 to start.
Ø 21st Century Auto Insurance
Pays affiliates $3 for every user who completes a free quote.
Ø Answer Financial
Guaranteed $4 for every lead for Life, Home, Health, Auto, and Long Term Care Insurance, and Annuities.
Ø Dental Plans
A $47 payout for every sale. A second-tier affiliate program is available upon request.
Ø HealthInsurance.com
$25 for each completed application for health insurance.
Ø InsureMe
$5 to $10, depending on the type of lead generated.
Ø Budget Life Insurance
$10 per valid insurance request (60 percent of profit) paid monthly.

You can also look into eHealthInsurance.com, Outlook Health, and Kanetix Insurance Shopping.

There are dozens of similar programs like these on the Internet. But these 8 appear to be the most popular and reputable.

Google AdSense on Web Pages Built Around Popular Insurance Topics
 
You could, for example, launch a website that focuses on natural disasters and calamities. You could feature articles on the site that help people deal with a catastrophe. Or you could include articles that teach people about natural disasters. 

You could write the articles yourself. Or you could pick up hundreds of copyright-free articles from websites like FindArticles.com, ArticlesBase.com or ArticleCity.com.

The next step is to place Google AdSense ads throughout your articles. The code is super easy to install in your pages (or just retain a freelance webmaster to do it for you). 

And here's the best part… When people click on your Google AdSense ads, you get paid (by Google). Entrepreneurs are making tens of thousands of dollars every month on Google AdSense alone!

I love getting paid for stuff that’s just sitting on the Internet. 

Here's a link to Google AdSense.

If you build the site properly (using meta tags, structure, page rank, back-linking, etc.), you will start to see significant traffic. 

If you want to speed up the process, you can buy inexpensive traffic on pay-per-click (PPC) engines and networks like MIVA.com, ABCSearch.com, 7Search.com, Kanoodle.com and LookSmart.com. 

You can also purchase prepaid keyword ads on places like ExactSeek. On this network there are NO pay per click fees whatsoever and subsequently no click fraud.

Web-based Insurance Comparison Site (This Is Hot!)
 
One of the hottest trends on the Internet is comparison websites. You can see examples of them everywhere! Just Google the phrase “shopping comparison” and you’ll see what I mean.

The idea is to list as many insurance carriers as you can find and compare each of the rates.

Granted, rates change as often as the weather, and there are hundreds of variables. But you can tell users that up front. Simply let people know that “actual insurance rates will vary - these rates are for general comparison purposes only.”

You can present these price comparisons on a static web page. In this case, the rates won’t change unless you update the HTML. 

Or you could present them with a dynamic feed like XML. In this case, you would simply enter all of the rate changes into a “form” and hit enter to change the rates on the website.

The more insurance companies you feature on your website, the better.
You can make the first couple of searches free, so people get a feel for the site. 

But if someone wants to perform multiple searches, or use your site indefinitely, then simply require them to submit some information. You can ask questions that insurance companies want to know about their prospects.

Obviously, you’ll need to tell users this information may be used by third parties. And they’ll need to agree to these terms in order to proceed.
You can probably think of other ways to design your site. 

But you should capture information from willing users in whatever process you use.

Make sure you keep it simple. People will not sit around all day answering stupid questions. Simply ask for a user’s name, e-mail address, address, phone, fax, income, and basic insurance needs.

Once they hit "submit" and the system verifies their information (which basically means his or her email address is valid), they can search and compare insurance companies for FREE - indefinitely.

The information you’ll be capturing will be INCREDIBLY valuable to insurance providers. They will pay you cash for these leads.

Important Note: Like I said, you need to make it VERY CLEAR to people - BEFORE they fill out the web form - that a third party may use their information.
Granted, this will turn some people off. But if you're generating 200 to 300 qualified leads from your site each month, the insurance companies will love you. And they’ll send you cash for these leads. 

Depending on the type of information you collect, the leads can sell for as much as $40 apiece. 

If you can generate 300 leads a month, that means up to $12,000!

What about marketing your website?

Anything you do on the Internet requires traffic. 

The most powerful free traffic generators are Google, followed by Yahoo!, MSN, and MySpace or Facebook. 

Purchasing keyword ads on Google can be expensive. The cost-per-click ranges from $.05 to $100. But keyword ads definitely work.

The secret is that Google is NOT the only game in town. Thousands of search engines can deliver quality, targeted keyword ad traffic. And many of them can do so at a fraction of the top engines.

The trick is to start out small on the cheap engines. Test various keywords and phrases. Once you have a winning combination, graduate to Google. Place those winning keyword ads on Google, and let it rock!

The neat thing about making money in the insurance business on the Internet is that there's no overhead. Once you have a "formula" (a website, AdSense, organic traffic, and keyword ads) up and running, it almost navigates on autopilot.

***** Action Strategy *****
Build a website around a topic or niche related to insurance coverage such as natural disasters, plane crashes, fires, terrorist bombings, or train wrecks (or find a freelancer to do it for you).
Include some original content or grab copyright-free articles at article database websites like EzineArticles. You can also add content automatically with Auto Blog Samuri and other applications.
Now add Google AdSense ads throughout the copy. Every time someone clicks on a Google AdSense ad on your website, Google pays you!
Word to the wise though: Don’t game Google’s AdSense system (or similar networks)….by clicking your own ads. You will be banned.
You can generate and drive traffic to your site with Google organic searches or through hundreds of PPC networks like Pulse360.com.
You can buy cheap click through traffic on sites like MIVA.com, 7Search.com, and ABCSearch.com too.
Another way to grab a slice of the insurance money pie is to build an insurance comparison website or engine. It’s easy.
You simply allow visitors to search and compare insurance rates and polices for free one time.
If visitors want to search again or have unlimited access to the site, simply ask for basic some information and store the information in database. It’s not hard! A freelance programmer or database programmer can set this up in an hour or two.
Insurance companies will pay you cash for this type of information and leads.
Obviously, don’t pull a fast one on your visitors! Tell visitors the information may be shared with third parties.
Granted, this strategy is getting harder by the day. But collecting information and selling it is not illegal or immoral….if the participants are aware.
And lastly….you can become an insurance affiliate!
This technique enables you to make money when someone signs up or purchases insurance products. The work will be entirely web-based and you'll receive compensation via check or PayPal.
It’s time to rock and roll!

What's Your Opinion of Email Marketing?

Question: Dear Marc, what's your opinion of email marketing? I mean...I know sending unsolicited bulk email is a no no. Plus buying email lists is not the way to go. But what are your thoughts on email marketing in general?
C.P. Tampa FL

Answer Marc Charles:

Hi CP! Thanks for the question and post!

My opinion of email marketing is very, very high.

However....and that's a BIG however......you need to do it right or you will be thrown out of business, sued, fined or worse.

The Internet community does not like spam....and there are some very serious and skilled anti-email marketing programmers and "techno" geeks to contend with...and so....

The ONLY way to do email marketing is with verifiable opt-in subscriber lists and "advertorials".

Granted, everyone claims his or her subscriber lists are "verifiable" and legitimate. But in reality very few are verified.

I won't go into all of the specifics here....but we'll cover the topic over time.

But legitimate opt-in subscribers are people who have "opt-in" or requested information from someone or a publisher and THEN verifies or confirms his or her email address. This verification is then recorded and stored in a database with the user's IP address for legal purposes.

The good news is.....verified opt-in subscriber lists can be VERY powerful and effective.

The other side of this is "advertorials". An advertorial email would be one that someone with a following or loyal audience would send to his or her subscribers which "soft sells" a product or service.

One of the "masters" in this space is Agora Inc. and Early to Rise. If you read these publications faithfully you'll begin to understand how and why advertorials are so powerful.

[url]http://www.agora-inc.com/[/url]

[url]http://www.earlytorise.com/[/url]

You're absolutely right.....DO NOT spam people or send them email they have not requested, and DO NOT buy email lists from companies, brokers or individuals.

I hope that helps!

I invite anyone to post his or her thoughts on the subject.

What's the Deal with the Marc Charles Channel?

Question: Dear Marc, I'm a big fan of your writing and insight. Believe it or not I've been reading your stuff from way back in the mid 90's with your Yahoo! Unplugged column! No...I'm not stalking you! Anyway, what's the deal with your Marc Charles Channel on YouTube (and elsewhere). You mentioned it a few times.
B.N. Orlando FL

Answer Marc Charles:

Hey BN --- thanks for the great note and post!

I'm humbled you've been "stalking" me......I mean reading my stuff :)

If you can believe it......I actually had a cable TV show in the 90's called The Internet Edge! We talked to business owners about their Internet strategy and presence. It was a blast! I think we did about 75 shows.

One of the producers thought he could do a better job so he terminated my contract, hired himself and the show lasted three weeks.....apparently people hated it!

But that's life and business.....even in backwater like Maine!

Anyway......I've had to postpone the Marc Charles Channel because of our house fire in Owls Head....and our relocation.

But I've already produced a bunch of shows....although I need help improving the quality...and editing.

But I'm still going to do it.....I think it's a natural.

So be on the look out for the Marc Charles Channel.....I'll probably shoot for January 2011.

Thanks!
Marc Charles
