John Thornhill Bio

John Thornhill is best known for being a PowerSeller on Ebay and sharing how he successfully sells on the auction giant through some of the CD ROMs he sells. He is an Internet marketer and author, coach and mentor. He is considered to be an "Ebay Guru", and his main products are informational products, but he also has some membership sites that two of which are sold out at the moment.

John Thornhill Detailed Overview

John Thornhill is an "in-the-flesh", willing to reveal his Ebay ID, honest to goodness Ebay Powerseller, Best selling Ebook author, and an Internet marketer. Like many other marketers, John Thornhill uses the giant auction site Ebay to his marketing advantage. A PowerSeller using the eBay ID: planetsms, John has sold downloaded eBooks (now not allowed on Ebay) successfully in the past. He still sells on Ebay, but his products are now CD ROMs. Currently, he is selling "Dare You Take The 90 Day PowerSeller Challenge?” CD ROM, and also "Auction Profit Streams". He still maintains his PowerSeller status with over 16,500 positive feedback from satisfied customers.

His products are all informational products, one of the most popular categories of Internet marketing products. He is considered by many to be an "Ebay Guru" making his money online selling on the auction giant. John has not only achieved success selling online by selling informational products, but also by teaching others to make money online since 2004.

John broke into the membership side of Internet marketing in 2004 when he began "The PlanetSMS Own eBook Business In A Box" membership. His goal was to teach how to sell eBooks on Ebay. He intended to also provide the inventory for sellers to use when selling on Ebay. His selling and the revenue from his membership made John a rich man. To further his teachings in 2007, John Thornhill went into the "coaching business" with a new product, "John Thornhill Coaching”, a 16-week coaching/mentoring program. Unfortunately the program sold out for the last time. The site is still up, and there is a capture form on the site where visitors to the site can leave their name and email address in case a coaching slot should open up. John Thornhill's "Marketing Masterclass" is also sold out. What does that say that both his coaching and marketing Masterclass are sold out? Not to worry! John also has a "Mentorshipmonthly" program that those interested in learning how to make money online can join. At the top of the site, you will also see a "FREE 7 Day course" that John shares the 7 key elements to online success in and any Website visitor can sign up to receive by email. His Mentorship monthly program is called, “Planetsms Digital Mentorship Monthly”. Individuals who join the membership receive a digitally delivered newsletter, audio and video training, tools that John believes you need to make money online (private label brandable material), help from John Thornhill, John's help promoting your product, and monthly Q&A sessions with John all for a $10 monthly price (currently).

Maybe He is TOO Good at This

I listened to one of John Thornhill's webinars, called The 3 Step Key to Success. At the end, he asks people to pay $2000 for one year of coaching. He says you can even call him directly on the phone. He claims that none of his students have failed to be successful if they completed his course. (I assume that this means they developed a complete pyramid line of information products and JVs).

The way the webinar went, John first presented a lot of boring stuff that we'd all agree with, about why people fail in their Internet businesses. The #1 reason is that everyone promises that they can get rich quick, but this isn't possible. This is a psychological tactic - start out by saying things that everyone can agree to.

Now get this... Near the end of the webinar, John says he only wants to work with people who can put in at least a couple of hours a week. It doesn't matter if they have no experience. With his program lasting one year, how are people supposed to be successful after putting only about 100 hours into it?

What happened here is that, without people realizing it, John depicted his own $2000 program as a get rich quick scheme. Just get the right coaching, and you will magically be successful within one year, no matter who you are or how pathetic your effort.

Someone would do well to get a decent website up within 100 hours or so, let alone multiple products, marketing, and an email list besides.

I don't know whether John is consciously lying or just intensely focused on the money. Either way, I would hang on to your wallet/purse!

I recommend the webinar itself (if you are strong-willed), and the free advice that you can find on John's website and thru his email subscriptions. Personally, I couldn't imitate John because, regardless of what the $2000 delivers, I think his method is deceptive. Still, he can write the book on Internet marketing.

John's 3 steps to success are:

1. Build an Online Presence.

2. Create a Product for Sale Online.

3. Drive Traffic to Your Product.

Also, I have a personal note for John Thornhill.

John, if you read this, please know that:

1. EBay is an American company and word, not British.

2. The word "eBay" has only 2 syllables, not 3.

3. The "e" in eBay is pronounced like "Eeee, " not like a hard "A".

4. Yes, this matters!

The Real Deal

I just completed John's 1 month mentor program and I have to say this guy is awesome. The detail, time and effort put in to the product is fantastic. I've been following John for a while now and everything he says is worth listening to. In my opinion, if you're looking for a mentor for IM, then John is your man all day long. His products are second to none and the way everything is explained is super easy step by step. John is highly recommended.

One Month Mentor

I was surprised to see John Thornhill has such a high score. I have had difficulty with numerous aspects and expected more personalized coaching from One Month Mentor. Particularly when John Thornhill's promotional sales video talked about phone calls. This was not what I was looking for. I haven't finished his course yet and don't know whether I will. I have to complete his course to be eligible for a refund. I have just read all the comments about him but none refer to the OneMonthMentor program which cost over $300. I don't know what one would normally expect for that amount, but the invitation for a refund was what encouraged me to have a look. I was surprised to learn after I paid that I had to complete the course before a refund was considered. I will see how it goes and post another review.

An expert on all things eBay and marketing your business online

I have been a member of John's list for a while and the training he provides really has helped me with my own online business. One thing I will point out though is he does have a very strong geordie accent, which you may struggle with at first, but you can still easily follow what he is saying. He is another marketer known for over delivering with his products and I speak from experience when I say the support he provides is nothing short of first class.

I have just recently purchased his "90 day PowerSeller Challenge" where John reveals how to gain powerseller status on eBay and the information provided was worth 10 times the price.

If you get the opportunity to purchase any of John's products I highly recommend you do so.

Peace out

Jules

John Thornhill, once skeptical, now in love!

I was afraid to try this man’s stuff at first, but after I gave it a chance and listened to his CD’s, I accepted the fact that not all of the people marketing things about internet marketing are scammers. I bought his CD from ebay a while back, maybe 2 months ago now? And I think that John Thornhill is a great and helpful man. I’ve never learned so much about internet marketing! He brings upon the topic a new and fresh way to look at things that anyone who’s interested in should definitely check out. Anybody who wants to get into the topic should look into buying John Thornhill’s CDs and/or Ebooks, as this man is pure genius and knows exactly what he’s talking about when it comes to modern internet marketing.

A bit sketchy but overall his strategies prove effective

John Thornhill is an ubiquitous personality for writing E-zine articles that thoroughly explain the Do's and Do not's of internet marketing. I learned essential information with building a mailing list and how to keep your customers loyal and buying into your products. He teaches everything you need to know about selling products online and the best way to sell them on Ebay to get the best buyers. He taught me to embellish my products with design and text to boost their professional look and attraction. John Thornhill is a hard worker who has developed some no- miss strategies for selling products online.

Is simply awesome

John Thornhill is one of the best and slightly underground internet marketers in the field right now. I would check out more of his products so you can see what I mean. I actually recently bought his ebay book and it is very thorough and down to the point. I am going to start implementing these techniques and strategies right away to boost my income even more. I would highly suggest investing into his teaching because you will be very pleased at what you have bought from him.

John Thornhill

John Thornhill's ebooks have taught me a lot about money making. I'm a proud subscriber of Planetsms Digital Mentorship Monthly. John's insider views at moneymaking is valuable and rare to find on the internet. I learned a lot about business tactics and strategies with his ebooks. His excellent knowledge and magnificent approach to teaching ways of making money is priceless and I'd definitely recommend this to people who are thinking about taking the next step into a successful business. His courses are very in depth and easy to learn. It is absolutely one of the best courses available on the internet.

The Best Teacher

I know him from Ezine Articles. His articles are very interesting. It seems that he knows everything about marketing. The most I like is PLR (Private Label Rights). It helped me to build mailing list and generate an income. He shows me step by step to build business so I can follow his advices. He shows me what should I do and what should not I do. It really accelerated my way to success.

If you are looking for a teacher for building your business, I recommend to choose him as your teacher. You can read his articles and buy his ebook.

Can't beat, honest!

John Thornhill was such a great help to me when I bought his e-book. And not to mention that it was worth the money! I have to say that this guy is a great mentor and teaches a lot! Ebay can be frightening to someone that is new and does not have a lot of experience. But reading his helpful tips of the trade I was able to market in a whole new way on the web.

And I also like that when you email him with a question, he sends back a response that is helpful. I do recommend John Thornhill.

Notable guy to invest in

John Thornhill is a notable fellow to interact with. I seen his name time and time again on various websites and surprisingly never got any negative feedback. His reputation seems solid and his products do deliver. I am not surprised that he is considered the marketing guru of ebay. I invested in his ebook for . 99 cents of course if you want the full package 7. His ebook helped me to become a major seller on ebay considering I knew nothing about selling on ebay in the beginning. I haven't finished the book yet, but if I have any questions I email John and he is always available. Great products, trustworthy guy.

Thornhill the Master of Marketing trades!

John Thornhill is one of the masters of making money online. Also as an experienced Ebay Power Seller he knows his stuff from both marketing and a sales perspective. Whether you are a beginner or experienced in marketing, there is always something that can be learned from John. His monthly Q&A that he has is extremely useful, as they are typically questions that you would want to find if you are getting into sales or marketing.

He gives excellent support as well, when you need help send that email and feel confident that there is definitely an answer on it's way. Make sure you subscribe to his newsletters (which are free), they will be very useful, and you can gain much knowledge from it. At only $10 a month (if you decide to pay) there is nothing here to regret, only success with this program.

A Real Person!

I actually first came across John Thornhill around 4 years ago when ebay still allowed digital products to be sold. He was a power seller with literally thousands of positive feedback.

I bought a few of his packages and was very impressed with the quality for the price.

I know John has branched out somewhat since then, but I still read his newsletter every week and take note of what he says, as I find him to be very honest and transparent. Too many marketers these days hide behind fake personalities or IDs, but I get the feeling with John, if he recommends a product, it is because it is good!

A trustworthy and knowledgeable guy!

Since I came across John about 6 months back, I feel that I’ve learned a lot from his methods and products.

I tried his JV Auction Profits program, which I found to be really helpful and easy to follow. He has a great no nonsense approach, and he teaches honestly with the attitude of having to work to get where you want to be.

The fact that John gives away some really useful information for free if you subscribe to his mailing list is another huge plus for me. I think it's always an encouraging thing when marketing gurus do this, almost like try before you buy.

I certainly recommend John and his products when it comes to Internet marketing. His teaching styles are great for all levels of marketers. I describe him as a highly trustworthy and knowledgeable individual.

John Thornhill is an asset to the IM world!

Three months ago I was looking for a training program to learn internet marketing. I wanted to go for John Thornhill's mentoring program, but it was full at that time. John referred me instead to Alex Jeffreys Coaching Program 2.0 where I had my training. John offered me additional support in case I needed it during the 2 months training I had with Alex Jeffreys. All he said about Alex Jeffreys training is true, as I have discovered. I learned so much about internet marketing from Alex's training program which John endorsed.

Since then I have purchased many other products of John Thornhill and I am in his subscribers list under the PlanetSMS mentoring program. All his products are well made and deliver to their promises. My emails to him are answered back without delay. He is one internet marketer who is so knowledgeable and respected in the IM world.

Could be better

The first thing you think about when you see the site is the design. The design of the site looks like a copied template and the site doesn't look "safe". This site could easily get more visitors by just changing the design.

When you enter your email address, the site bombs you with spam.

One To Follow

There are so many IM "gurus" around, but John is definitely one worth following in my opinion.

I have gained a lot of knowledge from him for free, as he gives away a lot of quality advice to his subscribers. I have also purchased from him (a membership to one of his websites) a few years ago and found his customer service to be excellent, and the service to live up to it's advertising in both content and quality.

Overall John really knows his stuff, but maintains a very "down to earth" "everyday guy" kind of image... the perfect mix in my opinion, so all positive from me!

Someone You Can Trust

I can't be sure exactly, but I think I came across John Thornhill when searching for something on eBay. Like I said in my review of Jim Cockrum, anything related to eBook or internet marketing I looked at with caution but soon learned that John Thornhill is someone who you can trust.

Over time I have come to trust John as he has always shared his thoughts and very good content along the way.

Yes, I have purchased may of his products and will always look at any product he recommends.

Look him up and join to receive his emails. You will not regret it.

John Thornhill Master of Ebay PowerSelling

I've recently tried one of John Thornhill's "coaching" guides, and it was very informative and productive. He is probably one of the best Ebay masters of the art of "making money online free, fast, and easy." I've been subscribed to his newsletter for quite some time now and that has been a real treat.

Very highly recommended!

It's not often that I come across someone as knowledgeable as John.

I subscribe to his newsletter which I always really look forward to receiving. It's about the only subscription which I do actually bother reading each time I receive it, and without exception there is always solid information which I can use myself.

I have purchased several of the smaller products and services offered by John, and the nice little touch that he offers is to always throw a few little freebies along with the purchases, so although it's not exactly *free*, it is that little bit extra that most internet marketing experts don't usually offer with their products. The freebies themselves are always just as useful as the actual product that I purchased, such as videos and e-books.

I have managed to implement many of the teachings of John, and I have found him to be consistently exceptional. I certainly recommend him as being a trustworthy and well experienced expert.

John Thornhill is at the Top of the List

There are a few prominent teachers that I follow closely. John is one of them. I am a student of his masterclass and have reviewed several of his products. He puts out quality and reasonably priced smaller products which are high value. But his high end products are really where he shines! Thanks John!

Great marketer

John Thornhill is one of the good guys in the IM space! I've purchased a few products of his as well as products he recommends, and they've always been top-notch. He is one of the few Internet marketers that I actually look forward to reading his emails. He has helped me a lot with my own online business and I recommend folks to join his list and learn from John. He won't bs you.

John is the real deal

I've only purchased one product from John, and another through his affiliate link, but would not hesitate to buy another if I had the need for it. I think he gives away as much as he sells and I've learned a lot from the access I've had to his free videos, etc. (Technically some aren't free, I guess, as I gained access as a bonus)I receive his newsletter and it's one of the few I don't have just a quick glance at and delete.
