Straw does not believe in hype, and he is very open about his disgust about the practices of some modern marketers to exaggerate things. Although a direct mail marketing man, Straw is not a newbie on Internet marketing. He has extensive experience in online marketing and uses it to complement his direct marketing business.

A Legend And An Absolute Pleasure To Do Business With

I have done business with J. F. (Jim) Straw since the 1970's and I have found him to be the most knowledgeable and helpful of all the experts I have dealt with.

I paid $997 for his "You Can Be A Millionaire In A Year Or Less" program and it has been worth every penny. The bonuses are awesome too. And, you also get Jim as your mentor for life. He personally answers your emails promptly.

If I were forced to do business with only one person online or offline, that is a no-brainer, it would be J. F. (Jim) Straw.

Been a subscriber for over a year

I used to receive his newsletters and classify them as spam, but then looked at a few and realized how valuable they actually were!

Each newsletter I received gave me more tips on how to increase clicks on links through emails, which in turn helped out on an E-Commerce project I was helping out with.

He appears to know the email industry like the back of his hand, he's a brilliant marketer and would love to use talk to him if given the chance.

Worth your time

Straw isn't too well known on the internet but I've been following him for a while. He's very dedicated and usually thinks of new ways to reach the masses without spamming them.

I signed up for his newsletter a long time ago and it contains a lot of useful information. Every month I get another mail with tips and tricks, I tried a handful of them and got a very satisfying result when checking my webshop sales. I love the fact the newsletter isn't a lame excuse to spam people and force them to buy new stuff Jim makes.

I also got myself his "Power Tools" so I could get more into the whole email marketing, very much worth your time if you ask me. Easy to use, very fast and useful scripts and applications for both the beginning and advanced marketing person. These tools made it very easy for me to start a mailing list, maintain it and integrate it into my website.

You might not have heard from him and his website might look very unprofessional at first, but give it some time and you'll love Straw's marketing strategies.
