Russell Brunson Bio

Russell Brunson is an Internet marketer that runs the popular Conquer Your Niche marketing forum and the creator of the company DotComSecrets, which teaches people how to start and build an Internet business. He has been featured on NBC morning news, FOX morning news and has been interviewed in the Millionaire Blueprints magazine.

Russell’s claim to fame was investing $20 to create a product and streamlining it into a multi-million dollar business by his senior year in college. Since then, he has been active in the Internet marketing community, teaching other people the strategies he used to accomplish this feat.

Russell Brunson Detailed Overview

Russell’s main product is the DotComSecrets monthly membership. Customers get a DVD and accompanying magazine delivered every month. The DVDs contain information about business management, copywriting, video creation, affiliate marketing, content development, web design, SEO, and more.

While some of the content was valuable, I was looking for more complete information on different topics such as SEO. Each month you get a few tricks and techniques in each area but I prefer to get the complete picture on a topic. Marketers who are looking for a tip of the month format will enjoy the membership the most.

Russell’s community site, the Conquer Your Niche forum, is a great resource for Internet marketers. It is an active community that allows you to connect with other people who are starting out on building a business or interested in growing their existing one. There aren’t many active IM forums so I found the forum a great way to network with others, seek feedback, review products, and discuss strategies.

The forum also lets you buy credit and gives you credit for posting. The credit can be used to buy classified ads which run on the top of the Conquer Your Niche forum. This credit system is probably helpful for those who actively promote Internet marketing products but for people involved in other niche markets, it won’t be of much value.

Overall, Russell’s products are geared mainly towards beginners. While he does provide solid Internet marketing strategies such as keyword research, pay-per-click advertising, joint ventures, affiliate marketing, and email marketing, there is not much information for experienced and advanced marketers. His courses walk beginners through a step-by-step process, from setting up their website, creating their product, to marketing it.

Russell Brunson Reputation

Although Russell has had great success as an affiliate marketer and with his company DotComSecrets, much of his success comes from selling to other Internet marketers. I found that his training similar to many other courses in the market. I recommend his training material if you’re new to this business but if you’re looking for advanced information on topics such as SEO, PPC, and email marketing, you should probably look elsewhere.

Russell sells various courses such as the DotComSecrets membership, 12 Month Internet Millionaire course, Affiliate Evolution, and Zip Brander software. He also offers personal coaching and runs seminars. His products and services have generally received positive from customers and he backs his products with money-back guarantee.

Good products

I have purchased several products from Russell and have found them to always over deliver. I would highly recommend them to anyone. He spells out the how to's and holds nothing back. He also has a great money back offer. He also covers several different business models, good step by step instruction.

K, I didn't think it was scam until I figure my VIP Life membership for my Conquer Your Niche Forum is gone.

The link to login wont' work anymore, and I check other people forum profile page, the link doesn't work either!

20 minute success story

I purchased the 20 minute payday, and it was misleading, as this program was mostly 2 hours of how a couple changed their life with hours, weeks, and months of work. I knew it was too good to be true, but I did want to make sure that the 20 minute program was something I could add to the tool box.

I think if each video was instructional past the reviews with the couple, it may have been ok, but I was disappointed.

I guess I really need the meat and it really wasn't any different than,

create a product

outsource

create a website

outsource

write articles

outsource

etc...

Russell Brunson is a stand-up marketer

My husband and I have done business with Russell in the past, and he has always been a straightforward, stand-up guy. Granted, he's got so many projects going on that he's always extremely busy, but he always makes you feel as if you're the only person in the world that matters - and marketers like that are few and far between these days! He's a good marketer - both honest and helpful and has been extremely accommodating to even the greenest beginner!

Dotcomsecrets

I'm very new to this internet business at home. I first signed up with Jeff Paul from late nite infomercials. He directed me to dotcomsecrets. I found that this web site gave a lot of information & was very consistent with trying to help me get started. The only problem that I found was that most of the opportunities would cost between $49-$200. This might be a lot to some people, it is for me right now. When I get better situated I'm going to go back to this site & try some of his products. I think it's worth a look!

He knows how to encourage beginners

I remember how I was trying to find information about famous owner of Virgin brand- Richard Branson. By the mistake I typed into Google “Russell Branson” and it automatically showed me all pages about Russell Brunson. I even did not know that I am looking at a totally different person! And before I released it I was so amazed by reading about this person. How he wanted to be a best wrestler, how he started to gain his success at the college, I admired his live streams, how he was so determined …. I told to myself that I have to follow him. I really did not want to purchase any products, I was a little skeptical because of my previous experience. What I did was that I became his affiliate. I believed in the power of his products. I advertised about his Micro-Continuity program. Unfortunately, I have never done any sales. It was a little bit disappointing for me. Maybe it was my fault, I did not put so much effort into it. But once I had luck with Russell. One night he put an advert asking to do something for $20. I did what was told from him and I could not believe when I found $20 from him on my Pay Pal. I know it is not so much but it was my first earning from Internet! He really knows how to encourage beginners.

This kid knows his stuff!

I probably shouldn't call Russell a kid, since he's married and has kids of his own, but I'm a grandmother so I figure I'm entitled!

Russell is one of the very few people I listen to on a regular basis. I belong to DotComSecrets and get emails all the time. In my past year of 'studying' the internet to see what's what and how to begin, Russell has been an inspiration. He's doing new things now as well.

One very impressive thing he's done lately is to jump on his Q&A show (Mondays 6pm EST) on UStream and tell everyone how to avoid the latest rule change for credit cards. He tells what his company is doing and also critiqued several of the ideas put forth by the viewers. He did this in a very timely manner. No big lags to think it over... 'here's what happened, here's what we're doing about it'.

My impression of Russell is that he's a very smart, very quick person. Yes, he talks fast and yes, he says " 'kay" too often, but if you can overlook those things, he's a very good person to learn from. And yes, he's honest.

Honest Marketer

Russell Brunson is one of the best marketers that I listen to.

This guy is just honest, and I can see that he really wants to help you. I have listened to this guy for about 5 months, and I am impressed by his marketing methods, and how much information he just gives away for free or pennies.

Not only is he an inspiration to young people, but he is very good with newbies, this guy cleared up lots of confusions that I had, and made me take action.

I have always gotten positive feedback with his support group, even though they don't respond the same day, they do respond within 3 days tops, and they are always nice and willing to help.

If you are a newbie and need to make money, this guy is one you should listen to, I don't think you will be disappointed.

I Don't Wan't to Hype this Up but This is The BEST and Only IM Coaching Program you Will Ever Need!

Sorry I Tried :)

 
 
 
Nice Person

I can say he is one of the good and helping internet marketers out there.

I subscribe to his email list for more than a year and I can honestly say that I didn't find any one of his mails worthless. His micro continuity blog is a great success and many are earning a decent income by following his guidance. While many of the internet marketers who claim them as GURU are actually afraid of revealing their true identity, Russell Brunson is open and honest. Check out his homepage and subscribe to his mail list, it's really worth it to read his emails and you will know about the latest trends in the internet marketing.

I Actually Paid for His Program for Several Months

I first became aware of Russell Brunson through an advertisement for a free CD along with a trail to his "Wealth Building Portfolio" continuity program. My initial cost was $29.95 and the package was extensive. In addition to a binder, I received content rich printed newsletters, a DVD filmed at a work shop where Russell taught his business model, and a series of audio CDs including his marketing in your car program.

I decided to stay on the program for several months at $39 per month and found that the monthly newsletter and audio CD material was of high value and actually over delivered for the price. He has recently made some changes and I am not sure if that exact product is still available. The package also came with a unique "desk top mentor" automated training application and access to a password protected website for additional training. It was worth it!

I then decided to join as an affiliate to market the "Do You Suck at Making Money" program and recently "Micro-Continuity. " I have been pleased with the affiliate support and resources to create opt ins and sales.

Overall I have been very satisfied with Russell Brunson and his team and recommend his with confidence.

The Micro-Continuity Blueprint

I really like Russell. There are so many moving parts in internet marketing. There are tons of niches within 'how to make money online'. And all of them are valuable. But when Russ talks about Micro-Continuity I pay very close attention.

Russ explains Micro-Continuity as the best and easiest one-man online income stream. There are some income streams that are nearly impossible to pull off without working with or for a good team. With this program all you do is setup content to be distributed via CD or DVD, drive traffic to your site that's selling it, and setup a 'by-the-month' program for your CD's and DVD's.

Russ is one of the sharpest marketers in the business. And really knows what he's doing.

Thanks for everything you do Russ. Take some time off and enjoy wrestling. You deserve it.

Great information, but moves fast

I have seen some of the training this guy gives, and was part of one giveaway that he had for his birthday. He has some great information, and is very helpful to newbies. He is always available for contact through many means, and gets back to every question despite his popularity. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go through the entire training he was giving away at the time, but I do keep up with his e-mails and what he is doing currently.

Marketers, Are You Ready For The Truth?

 
 
 
Do you suck at making money

I bought into his "do you suck at making money program". Honestly Zoobie is a funny little character but the program is good. It basically shows you how to use "free trials" to give away free products and make money on the back end. Not a lot else really because that CD is free, so that's all you get for free I suppose. But it's a good concept and Russell Brunson is pretty sharp.
