    Rich Jerk make you lots of idea on how to make money on the internet
    It's describe exclusively overview ( I means somes article in the books are secrets and good info , but somes he described basically. You need to have another basics ).
    SEMrush
    The books only 47 pages (Exactly 44 Pages without cover and some useless page) but the text is small and some worthful.

    Examples tips is how to write adwords ads to make high CTR
    this is 1 of his examples (I can't remember , this is overview)

    Don't Join any get rich quick !!!
    untill you visit this site and read this article
    scams revealed

    instead of

    Get rich Quick !!
    Make $xxxx/day with this
    Best program on the net

    Another , he suggest when you create some products
    You can make 200% refund satisfaction guarantee on 60 days after bought
    because 99% of customer will never refund if your products don't sucks. and forgot the guarantee after 60 days (or 45 days)

    And the 1% with mostly refund many products before , many of them will be banned by Clickbank cause of they refund many products before

    In my opinion , It's one of the good book but not worth enough $49. (I don't buy it but get it from somewhere)

    If you look at the rich jerk's own sites:
    CreditProvide.com
    Online-Gambling-Strategy.com
    Foreign-Pharmacies-Online.com

    They are all in very high paying markets but none of them really use his own sales technique to any great extent.

    With
    Online-Gambling-Strategy.com/warning.html

    He uses the technique only to namesqueeze people into his mailing list so I don't know what copywrite he is using in the mailing list.

    Basically they are all in spammy industries so any have decent information is like gold to visitors and even if his conversion rates are horrible he still gets $100s and maybe even thousands of dollars for each sale.

    He doesn't have to get good conversion rates when you get such high commissions

    One of the reasons he wrote the ebook was to 'push' people to his websites. In fact it is probably the sole reason she wrote the e-book.

    More than likely the success of the arrogance and claiming to be rich when not exploded and the 'push marketing' of the websites was dropped, and the viral marketing of RJ was begun and focused 100%.

    This would explain lack of Google PR on interior pages as well as the overall blandness of the RJ sites in general.

    Compare RJ site to the push marketed sites and you'll see a large discrpeancy in design.

    Just a few observations.

    The fisherman never screams "Bad smelly stinky fish for sale!!"

    Kelly Felix (a man not a woman) is a millionaire.

    No one can deny that. The book just doesn't tell you the steps he took to get there.

    The real reason why the book was so successful was because of the sales letter and affiliates all over the internet selling the book.

    I think the book was good. You just have to read between the lines. Do what he does not what he says. Promote products that pay a high commission, have a high conversion rate and make sure the other sites around you are all spammy so that any free information you give out is like gold to your visitors.

    Indeed we have to be careful of which e-books to invest on. I have some friends who are writing e-books on a subject they have only recently acquired knowledge on - not that I frown on their enterprising spirit, but it probably would pay to establish themselves first before writing a book.

    Too be honest with you I think it's better to just start. Maybe they do need more experience but they're books are probably better than the old crap that's on amazon. Just search for Affiliate on Amazon and you will find some truely worthless books.

    That's why you've got a good portion of people on the internet that really like the the rich jerk, because there is so much trash out there that makes the book really look good.

    I can't say one way or the other if the Rich Jerk's e-book is worth purchasing. But as someone who's a raw beginner and very green in the area of Internet marketing and things like Adsense (GREEN as in I've yet to build my first website) please take what I have to say with a very large grain of salt:

    We all know the value of stickies in a discussion forum. Stickies are great, they provide a ton of useful information to the newbie. I've been to several web development discussion forums on the 'net and I haven't seen any stickies that help the beginner get up to speed. Not one. So in that regard the Rich Jerk's book might, just might, be worth considering.

    I haven't seen the Rich Jerk's e-book, but if I do purchase it I would hope that it's a little "sticky-like" in nature or crafted in the mold of an "Internet Marketing for Dummies" type of presentation for those of us starting out at rock bottom. One reason I would have high hopes for that is because life is short, too short, and the "student" out there wants to hit the road running. With that in mind, getting up to speed as fast as possible is important to alot of people who are juggling things like school and/or working 9 to 5. People who don't have alot of time to waste.

    As I mentioned earlier, I have no concrete opinion of his book. The Rich Jerk's book may not be a worthy tutorial and then again it might be worthy. You might buy it and later find that he wrote it to push people to his website. Maybe you find that it's just a catalog of affiliate links he's trying to push on you. If it's full of fluff, doubletalk, vague content, marketing BS and nonsense that bogs you down like quicksand, the newbie should know that he does offer a 45 day money back guarantee.

    Just remember to pay with your credit card as opposed to check or money order or else you might have a hard time getting your money back. Last of all, a well placed sticky on the subject of Internet marketing 101 would be appreciated by many of us who are starting out at ground zero.

    The whole point of Rich Jerk is in this thread's first post:

    First you read his site:
    http://www.therichjerk.com

    And then you buy the book. Why? URGE! And if you ain't stupid you discover that all techniques described in the book are actually used on his site!!! And this is why he got rich at the first place!
    - this is why this e-book is unique. Buy it and read it as many times as needed to understand the point of it! The philosophy is what made him rich and what can make you rich too. Still my #1 e-book.

    He shows you have to make a website like his, how to make a killer newsletter! But most of the readers don't get it.

    I dunno, i think e-books are good for some topics, but others they are not so much. Digitalpoint usually has most of almost anything you are looking to learn.
