Robert Plank Bio

Robert Plank is a software programmer, Internet marketer, author and blogger who has been doing computer programming since 2001 and selling online since 2004. Today, he has over 30 products that he sells on his website catering to a variety of affiliate marketers and niches. He also maintains a double opt-in mailing list of over 10,000 readers, many of which are active customers.

Robert Plank Detailed Overview

Affiliate marketers are always confronted with two major problems when trying to grow their business and these are traffic and time. There are plenty of courses and Internet gurus that can teach any number of ways to get traffic, but Robert Plank’s specialty is saving people time. He has developed a simple but effective process of creating information products that have made him very successful in his short online career.

In 2001, he began to learn computer programming (specifically PHP) and worked for a period of time as a freelance computer programmer. He acquired his bachelor's degree in computer science from California State University Stanislaus. During this time, he learned a great deal about what it took to successfully sell products online and steadily began to find ways to create his own products which began to payoff for him in 2004.

At this time, Robert decided to begin creating his own info products, specifically programming tutorials, and also selling some computer programs that he had written. Since much of his background and prior experience were with PHP and mySQL, it only made sense that a large majority of his products were related to these languages. It was around the end of 2004 to the beginning of 2005 that Robert began to expand his e-mail list, which gave another boost to his fledgling computer programming and product creation enterprise.

Nearly 66% of Robert’s e-mail list subscribers were also paying customers who repeatedly purchased his products and services as they came out. Beginning in 2007, Robert began to include video with his info product offerings that included topics such as learning PHP, mySQL, JavaScript, WordPress, tips on outsourcing, copywriting and list building advice. By the end of 2008, Robert had achieved an income of over $10,000 per month profit for the entire year.

Robert is well respected amongst his peers and has been active in JV activities with well-known Internet marketer such as Gary Ambrose, John Calder, Brian Garvin, Steve Schwartzman and Jason Fladlien. A short list of some of Roberts most popular products include:

  • Fast Food Copywriting
  • Five Minute Copywriting

  • jQuery Tactics
  • Simple JavaScript
  • Daily Seminar

  • Sales Page Tactics Volume 1

Will not fix a problem with WPDrip

I purchased WPDrip from Robert and Lance and it does not perform as described.

The claim is that it will 'drip' articles on a WordPress blog to new users to give the impression that the content is fresh.

I could not get the product to work and sent an email requesting help with the product, no response. I then sent an email requesting a refund, no response. I then posted a dispute with PayPal requesting them to fix the problem or issue a refund, no response.

An inspirational to internet marketers worldwide

I first have to commend Robert Plank for his consistent hard work. I know some affiliate programmers and they are always on the computer sometimes for 6 hours per day. While having the time to put up a great advice blog which I follow from time to time. I tried his "E-book secret to marketing" product and it opened my eyes up to new marketing opportunities. After reading his book, I realized that you can synthesize different strategies together to configure the best marketing strategy by joining CPA Networks like Market Bay and from working with different products simultaneously. Robert Plank is one of the best you'll find for his prices and I've heard he's very forgiving when it comes to refunds and assistance with his products or programs.

Very respectable and knowledgeable man!

I have experience with several of Robert Plank's products, including Speak the Geek, PHP Revealed, and his Daily Seminar. He offers great information and seems to truly be trying to help others succeed. I have emailed with requests for help or information a few times and have heard back from Robert personally on more than one occasion. He has always been very respectful and informative. Overall, he really seems like a great guy! It makes me feel good to be doing business with someone who I know deserves the money he makes!

The coolest guy you'll meet

Robert Plank made a good impression on me after buying one of his products last June. After having trouble understanding a large part of the ebook on effective article marketing, I emailed him and asked for a refund because I didn't understand the book enough to take action. Not only did he email me back with the utmost sincerity explaining the ebook in more detail, he made me totally understand where I was going wrong! Even though I totally understood the section, he still refunded me the money because of the trouble. I can't even begin to explain how commendable that it. Robert has helped me gain knowledge with IM, and I especially enjoyed his take on time management. Robert is a role model and a very trustworthy gentleman.

Really awesome guy

Robert Plank makes me wonder if he still has the time to sleep or even rest. I am not a programmer but I do know that programming itself is a very time-consuming job. And yet he still has the time to blog, and his blog is one that I follow and read. I find it amusing that he has placed a "reading time" on each of his posts, and I guess, this is one of the sales or marketing technique that he implements. I still can't believe how great his sales methods and advice are, just because I didn't think that programmers are outgoing enough to be good sellers. But he is, which makes him really interesting. And he does know a lot about selling --- his methods and strategies are quite sensible and they are effective. Robert Plank is definitely no non-sense, and he sure means business. I find his ideas really credible and always worth reading or trying it out myself.

Effective, Straightforward & Honest !

I've had the experience of knowing more about Robert when I got his "Time Management On Crack" series, and it was one of the best tools I've ever bought. His tips on saving time and getting things done made me feel like I'm the king of time wasters!

I truly recommend his products. One of his creative ideas was how to write 50 articles from one idea! Which was AMAZING and helped me a lot. His time management course has everything you need to know about IM and how you can accomplish anything FAST.

Where has he been all this time?

As a PHP Programmer, and an Internet Marketer, I got super excited when I found out about Robert Plank's blog (and products). I purchased, Wordpress Crusher, where he teaches you how to do Wordpress Plugins. WOW. Huge time saver! I had been holding off because I didn't have the time to figure out how their system works. He gave me quick, straight to the point examples (and the more detailed explanations for those of you need them) and now I'm making my own plugins!

Well worth whatever price I paid, even double that, because it got me to where I wanted to be really fast. I haven't purchased any of his other products, but from reading his blog and from that one I did purchase I can tell you he's the real deal.

A programmer and an IM!?!

I was amused when I first heard about Robert Plank. He is a programmer and at the same time he is an Internet Marketer. I was told that programmers are not good when it comes to selling. It was such an achievement that he can sell and do programming. I am married to a programmer so I know how hard it can be at times.

What I like about this guy is he still finds time to write and share some stuff to his readers. I had his article about responding to 100 emails in less than 20 minutes. I gave my husband a copy of that and he says it was really helpful.

Knowing a guy like Robert Plank gave me more ideas about programmers and their job. It also gives me a lot of information about PHP and the likes. His website is a must stop if you are interested on programming.
