Ken McCarthy Bio

Ken McCarthy is one of the first marketers who marketed and brought together a seminar on the topic of Internet Marketing. He comes from a direct marketing background and has done consulting for two of New York's top investment banks, lecturing on educational psychology at MIT, Columbia, and NYU. HotWired magazine had credited him for being one of the people responsible for the development and explosion of the banner ad (which was the biggest way of advertising online for many Internet businesses before PPC and SEO).

Ken McCarthy Detailed Overview

Ken has been in many articles, seminars, and teleseminars over the past few years as a guest speaker and writer for many direct response and Internet marketers. He is most known for running the popular System Seminar in which he gathers a group of speakers who are experts in each individual area of Internet Marketing ever year.

Unlike most seminars, he delivers no filler material that leads to a traditional pitch at the end of each speaker’s talk. All the speakers deliver valuable information about their area of expertise whether it is pay per click, search engine optimization, email marketing, web 2.0, or other topics.

The speakers also do Q&A sessions and are very open to helping out attendees during the seminar rather than leaving after their talks, which is common in other seminars. These unprecedented features of the seminar have led to many of his customers becoming lifelong members of his System club and attendees of his annual seminar.

Ken’s other products include an Internet Marketing course for beginners, a course for selling physical products with ecommerce stores and SEO, and an advanced copywriting course. The annual recordings of the system seminar were previously only available for attendees and longtime customers but are now available for non-attendees as well.

One of the biggest things to be gained from Ken’s information is his amazing insight into building successful direct marketing campaigns and his advanced knowledge of copywriting. His long stint with the Internet also gives him the rare ability to help entrepreneurs connect the dots between Internet marketing, business building, and direct response.

Ken McCarthy Reputation

Ken is a great source of reliable information. The information Ken offers with his system seminar every year, however, is not intended for beginners. To get the most out of Ken’s teachings, you should already have experience with Internet Marketing.

While his seminar format is the same as many others in the industry, what makes Ken’s so different is that the speakers are chosen very carefully and are not allowed to pitch their products at the end of their talk or design their talk in a way that is intended to sell their products and services. This results in high quality information without the fluff and hype, giving the System Seminar the best reputation of all the annual Internet marketing seminars.

His Voice contains the Experience

I would love to give all the credits to Ken when it comes to Internet Marketing as just because of him, my life has changed. His blogs contains almost all the required information about the Internet Marketing and direct marketing. He is a guy who is doing the things for everyone and not only for himself. He even cares for all those people who are not going to pay anything, but still he will extend his help to inform us about good or bad sites. The way he explains the things is very user friendly and even a 10th standard student can follow them easily.

He Truly Is The Voice Of Experience

Ken McCarthy has been around the internet for a really long time. He has learned a lot and seen a lot of over the years and shares what he has learned on his website.

His website is easy to follow and use. Click onto his blogs you will find a lot of information that is very useful in direct marketing. He explains things very clearly and in a friendly manner. It is fun just to read them. He has things listed out so that if you are looking for particular information, it is easy to find.

His seminars are really informative and fun. He is approachable, gives great advice and really cares if you succeed. I recommend going to his seminars.

He deserves a thumbs up

My experience with Ken McCarthy so far has not been bad. For me he is the kind of person who sees to it that you are getting your monies worth of the courses and techniques that he has to offer. Even if you are not a paying customer, he cares enough to tell you about the good and bad sites out there, I even like the fact that he tries to include you into his business ventures. He deserves a thumbs up from me.

Great resource on bullets

My first exposure to Ken was in the first Stompernet program with Andy Jenkins. However my first fruitful experience with Ken McCarthy was in his Copywriting product. I learned the right mindsets and paradigms you should adopt when it comes to making bullets that pierce through the readers psychology. Making reverberating bullets is the precursor to creating forceful headlines and serving as the skeleton of how the copy eventually proceeds.

By having the right attitude in bullet-making, you invariably learn how to create more robust and well rounded salesletters.

That is about the most value I've gotten from him, and he did claim that even seasoned top gun copywriters pay to learn his bullet creation skill sets.

I've heard him speak about other areas of copy, however this was the only area I received any value from.

Ken McCarthy Is the #1 Marketing Guy in the World

Ken is without a doubt one of the finest guys on the internet when it comes to not only Internet Marketing but also Direct Marketing. I went to his one day seminar when he came early and stayed late. All the information was exceptional and he over delivered.

When I realized that I had somehow got put on his list and was being billed $90 a month for 4 months he refunded the whole amount no questions asked.

I look forward and save everyone of his emails as each one is worth more than most courses that you have to pay for. He is truly a marketing genius.

He has my utmost respect and should be at the top of all serious marketers list of top ten.

Great job for Ken.

Internet Marketing Pioneer

There are few legends of the internet. If you like following people who seem to be doing things before everybody else is doing them, then Ken is the one. His system seminar pre-calls are better than most full $997 courses. Ken was doing the system seminar before seminars were the popular thing, and even to this day, his seminar is all content where a lot of seminars are pitch fest.

He is already talking to experts about mobile marketing which is really going to be the next big thing.
