New Social Media Marketing Service by Marc Charles


I'm wrong about many things.

I said Walmart would never make it online.

I said cannabis would never be legalized.

I said old world paper financial newsletters were dead :)

I also said "social media marketing" is a pathetic joke. Well....I still believe that to a degree. Some people are selling products and services via social media.....but very, very few.

Anyway.....there are some social media marketing services that are cheap enough to "test", and some of these actually work.

My friend and client, Igor, launched a new social media marketing company. It works :)

The Trend for Small Bookstores by Marc Charles


Most of the small bookstores on the coast of Maine are either bankrupt or going out of business.

My buddy's bookstore in Camden Maine was broke when he died three years ago. The new owners finished it off.

A brand new Super-Walmart opened on US Route 1 in Thomaston Maine recently. So it's only a matter of time for the two other small book stores to close.

Although Hello Hello Books will probably make's almost a it's safe. Do me a favor and consider buying a book there just for the fun of it.

I wish I could buy banned, forbidden, dangerous, and forced out of print books locally like those offered n Loompanics, Tools for and Paladin Press.

Comex Insider Spills the Beans by Marc Charles

A Trader’s Guide to Precious Metal Profits

Comex Insider Spills the Beans

7:15 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:

I was shocked by the raging hysteria on eBay last week when I listed a dozen gold bullion coins for sale.

In one auction more than 45 people were bidding on a single coin!

There are dozens of ways to make money in the precious metals markets. I’ll show you several of them today.

But know this….I’ve traded precious metals from the floor of Comex (largest trading exchange). I know the tricks, gimmicks and games.

Most people….let’s say 90%....have been trained by Wall Street to believe the only way to make money with investing is by purchasing stock (in the companies they represent).

On top of that, most investors believe the ONLY way to make money with gold, silver, platinum or palladium is to buy low and sell high. This is one of the greatest deceptions in financial markets.

If you know what you’re doing and if we take the time to learn how the world and markets work in the real world (can you say MF Global?)….then we can make money when gold surges, plunges, stagnates or goes back and forth for weeks on end.

In the coming days there will be opportunities of a lifetime in dozens of markets, sectors and industries.

One market in particular is precious metals.
In my view, more money is lost in the precious metals market than any other market.

In my experience, as a former Comex precious metal trader, here are the two biggest reasons for LOSING MONEY in precious metals:

1.    Following the masses or general public
2.    Following or listening to people who have never made money in precious metals.

Today I’ll provide a short overview of the different ways to invest in precious metals. You’re probably familiar with most of these ways, but let’s just review.

I’ve included little-known strategies for generating profit and REMOVING IT from the market.

Most novice investors never have a strategy for removing profits.

Granted, most people know how to buy gold coins these days or ETFs.

But novice investors rarely have an exit strategy.

Whatever approach you choose to invest or speculate in precious metals it’s important to establish an exit strategy.

I’m serious.

The gold I unloaded on eBay recently was part of a five year exit strategy. I bought some of this gold below $575 an ounce. I sold most of the gold for more than $500 per quarter ounce!

An exit strategy should include the best and worst case scenarios.

For example, the “buy and hold for a lifetime strategy” beat into our heads by Wall Street rarely works with precious metals.

Therefore, if you invest in a precious metals exchange trade fund (ETF) you should know the average price per share since the fund inception, the historical low and the historical high prices.

Armed with this information you can enter a trade knowing where the price is in relation to the average, high and low, helping you establish a general exit point.

For example, if you purchase a precious metal ETF near the average price of $5 and the historical high is $10, one exit strategy would be to sell before the historical high, say $8.50.

Granted, the ETF share price could exceed the historical high.

After you sell at $8.50 and REMOVE profits, you can always re-enter the trade at $8.50 and if the price exceeds the historical high you can profit accordingly.

The objective is ALWAYS to remove profits, and start over again small.

One key component to trading precious metals profitably is probability.

Probabilities, averages and constants are mathematical statistics the largest and most profitable precious metals and hedge funds use to make money.

Ways to Invest in Precious Metals

Numismatics and Rare Coins
Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. Numismatists are usually characterized as collectors of coins. Numismatics includes the broader study of money and other payment media used to resolve debts and the exchange of goods. Rare and historical coins fall into this category.

Bullion Coins
A bullion coin is a coin struck from precious metal and kept as a store of value or an investment. Investment coins are generally coins which have been minted after 1800, have a purity of not less than 900 thousandths and are or have been a legal tender in their country of origin.

Bullion coins are available in gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The only exception would be the Krugerrand and the Swiss Vreneli which are only available in gold.

The American Eagle series is available in gold, silver and platinum, and the Canadian Maple Leaf series is available in gold, silver, platinum and palladium.

Exchange-traded Funds (ETF)
ETFs are available for gold, silver, platinum and palladium. ETFs are traded on most world exchanges. They typically track the price of the physical metal. ETFs are also available to short precious metals. In addition, there are ETFs which enable you highly leverage the precious metals market too.

Precious metals futures currently trade on various exchanges around the world and over-the-counter (OTC) directly in the private market. In the U.S., gold futures are primarily traded on the New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX) and Euronext LIFFE.

In India, gold futures are traded on the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) and Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX). Future contract prices are listed on financial websites and on exchange websites. The product symbol for gold futures is GC, and it is traded in a standard contract size of 100 troy ounces.

Precious metals options are option contracts in which the underlying asset is a gold, silver, platinum or palladium futures contract.

The holder of an option possesses the right (but not the obligation) to assume a long position (in the case of a call option) or a short position (in the case of a put option) in the underlying gold futures at a given strike price. This right terminates when the option expires after a market closes or on the expiration date.

Mining stocks
These do not represent the actual price of precious metals. These are shares in gold, silver, platinum and palladium mining companies. If the precious metals prices rise, the profits of the gold mining company may rise. But there are many factors to consider. Share price do not always rise when the price of a particular precious metal increases.

Mint and Commemorative Sets
Commemorative coin programs were created by an act of Congress to honor a person, place or event. Surcharges from the sales of these coins help fund a variety of organizations and projects that benefit the public. Commemorative coins are only available from the United States Mint for a limited time, as specified by public law.

Bars are a popular way of investing in precious metals. In some countries, like Canada, Argentina, Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, gold and silver bars can easily be bought or sold at the major banks. There are also reputable bullion dealers around the world which provide the same service. Bars are available in various sizes.

Gold certificates were issued by the US Treasury from the Civil War until 1933. There are denominated in dollars.
The paper certificates were used as a gold standard and could be exchanged for an equal value of gold.

Gold certificates offer investors a way of holding gold without taking physical delivery.

This is how paper money got its start. But of course, bankers soon realized they could issue paper certificates and not be forced to store or back up certificates with actual gold.

Millions of precious metals jewelry exchanges hands every year. Jewelry is not usually considered a serious investment. It can hold and increase in value.

Unit Trusts
The most popular unit trust is BlackRock Gold & General. They invest in the shares of gold mining companies as well as other commodity businesses. Another unit trust is JPM Natural Resources. Gold mining equities are typically more volatile than the gold price.

Importing Fortunes is for Real by Marc Charles

7:01 AM


I've enclosed another article I wrote for International Living.

It's about a new overseas income opportunity and my program Importing Fortunes.

You'll like it.....



By Marc Charles

Dear Fund Your Life Overseas Reader,

Finding reliable income opportunities is not easy. But I have one for you today.

I was a guest on a webinar recently that focused on legitimate business and income opportunities that required little or no startup capital.

I revealed a business that surprised a lot of people.

I’ve dedicated more than 30 years to researching, dissecting, testing and teaching people about legitimate business and income opportunities. So this webinar was right up my alley and a lot of fun.

I explained how one “work-from-anywhere” income opportunity might be a good fit for people like you who like to travel or live overseas.

You could start dabbling in this business to see if it’s right for you with very little investment. I completed my first “deal” for under $250. But you could start with even less than I did and be on the right track.  

My friends Kevin and Lisa Hickey started doing deals from a spare bedroom. That was eight years ago. Today they have an online business that can be run from almost anywhere with a laptop.

Caroline Lau loves scrapbooking. She found an overseas supplier for high quality scrapbooks and then she sold them online for a nice profit. The best part is she doesn’t even handle the products; she outsourced this to Amazon (for a small fee).

I’ve developed a comprehensive program with step-by-step instructions for this income opportunity.
You’ll also learn about an incredible website where buyers, sellers and suppliers from 240 different countries meet to discuss products and make deals. That’s where Caroline and the Hickeys found their products.

Jane Ivanov knew there was a market for lingerie for expectant mums. She found a manufacturer on this website that could make them for her, and ship them to her fulfillment center. She has a thriving business that can be run from anywhere!

Did you know that you can sell products on Amazon without ever having to deal with the product physically in your home or office?

Forget about the hassle of storing products in your basement, garage, or home office. Those days are gone.

Today, companies like Amazon have huge storehouses specifically for this purpose. They will store your products for you and only charge a small fee when you make a sale. This is like an ultimate, no stress business with super low startup costs and risks.

I share all of my “insider tips” for this business, plus real life examples, and simple step by step coaching and instruction.

Once you see how it works, you can decide how much time you want to give it.

And when you see the income you can plan the overseas move with the security of knowing you can continue to earn on a regular basis.

In other words, it’s a step in the direction of your dreams…..before you make the big leap.

Business Plan Reviews by Marc Charles

10:44 AM

Hi Gang:

I reviewed a business plan and executive summary over the weekend.

Most entrepreneurs follow a "business plan template" when developing his or her own.

The problem is it's almost impossible to forecast sales, profit/loss, margins, etc when you haven't made the FIRST SALE.

Seasoned investors, banks, lenders and VCs RARELY read business plans --- they assign this task to lower level management.

Seasoned investors are looking for the BIG idea, actual market demand (with proof) and how a venture plans to reach an audience.

The next thing they want to know is WHEN they'll get paid, and what is the downside risk.

So....I try to put all these things in the first paragraph of plan or exectuive summary.
