Jay Abraham Bio

Jay Abraham ranks today as the world’s number one consultant. He has been in the Internet marketing business since a long time, 24 years in all, in which time he has helped several other businesses to grow. His website states that his policies are being used by 5,000 businesses all over the world, but this does not take into account the various other businesses that use his principles without his knowledge. He is the owner of Abraham Inc., a company that is based in Los Angeles, where Abraham himself stays.

Abraham has a very distinguished profile. His consultation – he charges thousands of dollars for an hour’s worth of consultation – is used by corporate such as Citibank and Sears. With such a distinguished clientele, it is very difficult to get hold of Jay Abraham, but a lot of his material is cheaply available online which is what most people use.

Some of the bestselling products of Jay Abraham are The MasterMind Marketing System, Your Secret Wealth and 93 Extraordinary Referral Systems.

Jay Abraham Detailed Overview

Jay Abraham basically dabbles with consultation and teaching. His forte is to help businesses to grow beyond their normal expectations. One of the most significant aspects of his products is that they are not specialized, in that sense any kind of business in the world can seek the benefits of what he has to say. His teachings are universally applicable.

An important reason why Abraham is so highly famous today is because of the way he projects his ideas. In the last two and a half decades that he has been active, he has shown a penchant for realizing the potential of underperforming companies, buying them and then nurturing them to grow. In fact, a lot of material that is sold under his name is material developed by others who couldn’t market it for some reason. Abraham gives it his own touch and his name and then sells it over to a wide clientele. This is exactly what Abraham teaches through his lessons also.

Another reason is that Jay Abraham is not media-shy. His successes have had television channels and publications chasing him and he has graced them with well-prepared interviews. He has been featured in Investors Business Daily and has written in several publications including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, San Francisco Chronicle and several others. This has given good exposure to his ideas, which has helped him grow in popularity.

However, there are certain criticisms about him. His very high price is one of the main problems. This makes him virtually unreachable to the amateur Internet marketers, who are actually the people who could benefit from his products the most. Resultantly, there is a trend of getting Jay Abraham’s products freely from the Internet from dubious sources and purchasing them secondhand through eBay and similar portals. Another criticism about him is that a lot of his work actually belongs to other people whose rights he has purchased. He is also known to recycle his own work. People who are acquainted with a lot of marketers’ works may find his work rehashed in parts.

Jay Abraham Reputation

Consternations notwithstanding, Jay Abraham has carved for himself a very lucrative niche in the online world.

This millionaire-several-times-over is what most Internet marketers aspire to be and that itself is the most inspiring thing about him.

Used to be a fan of Jay Abraham

I heard about him from the Tony Robbins monthly interviews and was delighted with what was covered in the interview.

So later in 2004 when the chance came to be one of (only) 100 Jay Abraham Proteges, to personally coach you and help you to use his marketing skills to make your websites successful and profitable, for $5,000 USD I jumped at it.

I had only just started building my first SBI website a few months earlier and loved it so much I wanted to fast-track my learning so that I could be a full-time home based IM'er or Webmaster, and I thought his skills would be the key to almost guaranteed success in this venture.

Instead I wasted 6 months of time when I should just have been listening to what SiteSell hosting taught me, because the good things the the Protege program taught us had already been taught to my by SiteSell, and what else the Program taught was black-hat! I couldn't believe it!

And when I along with many other 'proteges' complained on the Forum, our comments were deleted and basically told to just shove off if we didn't have anything positive to say.

Then the 100 was expanded to a not very 'exclusive' 300 Proteges before they finally called it quits with the program. It's a guess that at least $2m was made by Jay, Rich and the other guy in that Protege program over 6 months.

Eventually after I complained enough, I had a private phone consultation with Jay himself, (thanks Spike) which I was understandably excited about - but Jay did not have any contribution to make other than to suggest that I start doing JV's.

Nice advice, but not the $5,000 training I paid for to make my websites successful and profitable.

And it appears that any concept of a refund is out of the question. I'd like to hear from anybody who has ever succeeded in getting a refund on any high ticket JA product, as I have been told he is notorious for never giving refunds.

Now I'm sad to say that while I still respect the man's marketing skills, I won't be buying more products from him or his cohorts.

Great author and a legend in the internet marketing business

Jay Abraham is by far the most experienced internet marketer who is of relevance right now. When I read his book "Mr. X" it told me he's had 34 years of marketing experience. This was the sole reason for my purchase of the book and I wanted to upgrade my marketing individuality. This book teaches you exactly how to become more original and professional than your competitors to build reputation and credibility to stand out in the market. Since implementing his guidelines to success, my websites are becoming increasingly popular and I've even seen my website pop-up in other social media sites. His book will give you the exposure that you desire and overall a trustworthy guy.

Not one of my favorites and very unapproachable, but good

I’ve read 1 or 2 of his internet products and found most of it to be rehashed information. Few of it is original, and the best value I think you’ll get from Jay is to be a one-on-one client.

Don’t get me wrong, his ebooks are good, but I’ve seen better and have gotten far more use out of reading and applying better products out there.

Education is Key

I first learned of Mr. Abraham through a marketing class, and then again through a friend who is a business major who had purchased “Mr. X Book. ” Curious about what they were so enthralled with, I asked to borrow the book to see what the fuss was about.

I was pretty impressed with what I read. One of the best chapters for me was the one about education. Explaining to your customers what makes your offer better than others, and specifically why you are presenting them with that offer seems like common sense, but is underrated by many who are trying to start a business. Abraham presents this idea in a clear manner as far as not only educating the customer before the sell, but the value that your product will bring after.

Don't buy unless you are rich

In my personal opinion, Jay Abraham is all about keeping himself rich. He does not practice what he preaches. I signed up for his $3000 program and it did have some good information, but from reading it he got a lot of his information from other people. In this course which is 13 months long meeting online 1 time each month, he offered a 30 day risk reversal! Not even enough time to review all the material. Then if you cancel or try to cancel after the 30 days - he sends you to collections! Unless you are rich, do not buy his program. You get special treatment if you are rich.

Honest and actionable business advises

From my point of view, Jay Abraham is the best, especially when it comes to the philosophical bases for a business.

He gives you actionable advises that won't brake your bank to be implemented, in fact some of them wont cost you a cent, but will increase your income/profit in no time.

I suggest to buy his soft-cover book, it costs about $15, but I'm sure some "consultants" would charge $500 or more to teach just the same in a "business seminar".

The Gurus Guru!

If there is one Guru that is on the absolute top of my list that would be Jay Abraham. Starting with this strategy of preeminence, his take on partnership joint ventures are mind blowing and practical.

This guy can literally make money out of thin air and that's only by tweaking a few things here and there. I have not heard of a win-win concepts that way I've heard it from him. His attitude on serving the customer coming genuinely from the heart proves that business transactions need not just be cold, money motivated, self serving events. Making money while exercising altruism is possible!

There is so many more things I can say about this guy. All that wisdom and knowledge coming from his decades of experience dealing with only the best corporations, makes him...

The guru's guru, and is second only to none.

If you have the chance to partake of any of his materials do it! Is there anything better?

Jay, teacher of successful people

I believe that nowadays people are quite familiar with Jay Abraham. Although he is less famous than Anthony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trumph, and others. But do you know all those famous people asked Jay Abraham's advice with a fee high enough.

His articles are so great and his methods so flexible. And the most important is what he teaches can be applied at any area in this life.

He is a role model and teacher for all successful people in the world. In Indonesia, a renowned motivator Tung Desem Waringin even admitted, since he learned with Jay Abraham his income increased rapidly as the earth and sky compared with before. So one word for Jay Abraham "He is a real teacher".

My Experience With Jay Abraham

I first heard of Jay Abraham through Rich Schefren in the Entrepreneurial Emergency report which deals with the Uncertainty Syndrome. He wrote the introduction. The book is 60 pages, and I wouldn't have read a word of it if I didn't read his intro. It was stellar to say the least. He's a great copywriter and has the ability to motivate through the written word. It's almost like the words jumped right off the page.

Jay is more of a businessman than a common man. Most of his stuff is written from the business perspective, and he is relentless. An hour worth of consultation will run about 10 grand or more. But if you want to get to know him, check out his free stuff or even join one of his email lists, and you will learn to understand his writing style. I think he's great. But he may be too rough for some people.

Delivers outstanding material!

I came across Jay Abraham when I purchased his book entitled Mr. X Book. I was very impressed by his work.

His projects tend to be aimed towards businesses rather than individuals. Although some of his work seems to be expensive, Mr. X Book was not overpriced considering the amount of information that was packed into it, and the support it gave the marketing department at my workplace.

Jay seems to be very well educated when it comes to internet marketing, and I have been told by my colleagues that some of the material covered in Mr. X Book was not even taught to them at a business studies degree level. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another of Jay's works in the future.
