Tellman Knudson Bio

A disability can be a hindrance not only to success, but even to a normal life. This man did not only have one, but two disabilities having been diagnosed with ADHD and a rare bone deformity in his leg. While these deformities made his childhood very challenging, these did not stop Tellman Knudson from achieving his full potential.

He began his life in New Hampshire, and it definitely wasn't an easy start. In spite of all odds, he overcame everything and became the Internet suceess story he is today. He works with non-ptrofit organizations to help others in distress, and his most popular venture is the one with Virgin Unite to help prevent teen suicide.

Currently Tellman Knudson resides in Brattleboro, Vermont, USA.

Tellman Knudson Detailed Overview

It was back during the college days when Tellman Knudson started his first business involving salsa and all its aspects from creation to shipping. Had the salsa business produced the income desired, Tellman Knudson would have been Salsa King now instead of a marketing guru.

With a certification in neurolinguistic programming and hypnotherapy, Tellman Knudson went on to help people with disabilities and problems involving weight, learning and even his own disability---ADHD. But even with eight offices in New Hampshire at one time, this did not translate to the income capacity he desired, so he worked as a truck driver.

It was in late 2004 when Tellman Knudson hit it big with his “List Crusade” program which he launched with the aim of achieving fame and fortune in the Internet. With a mission to build a one million subscriber list in just one year, Tellman Knudson sought interviews with popular Internet personalities like Mark Joyner, Dr. Joe Vitale and Harv Eker.

Aside from his “Black Diamond Line” one-on-one coaching program, Telly Knudson has a lot of successful Internet business projects under his name to include ADHDSecrets.com, ListCrusade.com and a lot more. His specialty? Increasing the loyalty and responsiveness of your customers as proven by the more than $800,000 sales figure he achieved in less than a year.

Tellman Knudsen’s lists are deemed effective because he is popular for getting 50 to 79% opt-in rates. Just recently, he has revealed his 17 traffic secrets, although the 17th has remained a secret. His advice was to choose one form of traffic and only move on to another form once you have mastered the previous one. One such form is search engine optimization, which can bring a lot of traffic to your site and increase your ratings too.

He is also recommending other traffic strategies like voice broadcasting, teleseminars, direct mail and postcards, article marketing, podcasting, blogging, press releases and viral marketing among others. All these you will know once you sign up to Tellman Knudson’s EasyTraffic Steps. This site does not require you to pay anything, but you have to fill in your name and email address.

Once you get access to Tellman Knudson’s Easy Traffic Steps, you get access to 20 proven methods in traffic generation. This is a complete course which will teach you one traffic strategy per week for a total of 20 weeks. The course is expected to help even new and inexperienced bloggers by revealing surefire ways to drive traffic to their sites and how to convert these into sales.

If there is one criticism against the course, it is the 20-month duration, which is quite too long. But upon further consideration, this is not too bad a deal considering that you may have to spend more time on your own trial and error method without even a guarantee of success.

Opting in to the Easy Traffic Steps course will add you to Tellman Knudson’s thousands of opt-in list. However, you will have free access to traffic generating secrets that have been proven and tried by this internet marketer guru.

Tellman Knudson Reputation

I personally find the success story of Tellman Knudson to be very inspirational. Generally, this is also the same reason people gravitate to Tellman Knudson. He shows that he can reach for his dreams and make it happen in spite of personal disadvantage that would have definitely stopped many. However, there is a fraction of the community who are appalled by the fact that he purportedly attempted to use the powers of hypnosis to sell his products! I find this to be rather contradictory. The mistake of not reading the fine prints when signing up is definitely ours as a consumer. The important thing to realize is there isn't any free meals around, so it is up to our own judgment to evaluate offers and decide if it sounds too good to be true.

I joined... and left

I joined this course and the first thing to hit me was the massive upsells that never seemed to end... What a turn off. $1000's worth of "must have upsells that you just could not do without" This alone was enough for me to totally lose interest in anything this guy tried to tell me. I browsed through the content when I finally reached the members area and I was again turned off. Just never ending videos and pdf's that seemed to drag things on into eternity. Extremely insufficient and overwhelming. I asked for a refund and within a couple of days I got it, so all well and good? - No, I started getting telephone calls from some "champion jada jada coaching" And to make a long story short they started the conversations by offering me to get free access to their program if I was low on funds, asked me about my economy and my assets. Guaranteed me that within 60 days I would have made at least $5000(I knew something was up but I played along) On the third day and third conversation they got to the point, they wanted me to give them my credit card number over the phone so they could verify that I was indeed myself =P LOL (I was having fun so I still played along) I asked them for a website for transaction rather than giving him the card number over the phone, but no they had no such thing, this was the way they always did business =D

I was amused to no end and started pressuring the guy, it ended in him getting quite agitated and pi*sed off thus ending the conversation. Obviously these guys are connected to Tellman in some way as they stated that they got my number through his membership site. I thought Tellman was a straight up guy, now I know differently. I hope that no one ever fell for this one... SCAM!

Just Curious

I'm curious... For those of you that are complaining about all the email that you receive from Tellman Knudson... How did YOU make Your $800,000??? Personally... I can't get enough of his "stuff" and I simply delete any affiliate endorsements if they aren't for me. I also think his "personal" customer services staff is amazing. I don't have any experience with the services that he outsources which may be what people here are upset about.

List Builder Club

I joined this club, forked out hard earned cash, and what do I get? 30 emails a day promoting someone else's products, none of which are worth looking at!

I too have had difficulties getting my money back - after 2 months I still don't have it, and all I have to show for it are thousands of sales emails.

One thing is for sure, I will NEVER bombard my membership with constant sales letters, I don't care what kind of gimmicks these guys use. I've unsubscribed from all their lists because they send you so many sales letters you don't have time to learn from the programs.

I am disgusted with it. Run Tellman, Run!... there are quite a few people chasing you to get their money back!

Tellmans operation is run by a scam

This is a friendly warning for everyone who does business with this Tellman.

I got a refund from them because the material was all over the place and they gave me a refund only to charge me again the next month.

When I found out I contacted them, they are now saying I should give them my full credit card details including expiry date etc ... we've been at it for 2 months now emails back and forth. still no joy, they want my details to charge me again.

Please stay away from this company. I did some research, if anyone had similar experience, and I see there are a bunch of them.

TELLMAN IS A SCAMMER for sure.

BY THE WAY MY FIRST EVER BAD REVIEW

A weird Marketer

Tellman's approach is very different to the other gurus. This guy bombards you with emails every day, which can get a little sickening, but either way he is a genius marketer.

I really like the way he writes, and he is very persuasive, which I think it's worthy of studying.

This was one of the first gurus I ever listened to, and being a newbie I can see that he is not so newbie friendly, even though he says he is. Anyway I would recommend Tellman to anyone, he is an inspiration, a very funny and weird marketer, but he has an effective approach which cannot be neglected.

I feel that Tellman is a good example of how doing things differently can have a good impact on your bottom line.

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 :)

 
 
 
I'm not usually so negative but...

I'm one of those people that was brought up to believe "If you can't say something nice, than don't say anything at all". However, this time I'm going to break that rule.

It seems Tellman's Customer Service doesn't know the meaning of "URGENT" or "Service", nor does his billing department understand that a 30 day Free Trial means 30 days not 24.

This is a pet peeve of mine... when I see IM "Gurus" promising free trials with continuity programs attached that pull the "bill them early and keep on billing tactics" if makes me furious.

Add to that, a promise of you can cancel with just a phone call or visit to our 24 hour customer service site that in reality is not even manned. Their customer service phone number leads to a message that sends you to a support site. The Support site in turn never answers repeated urgent messages, leading to ... you having to go through your credit card or bank debit card to get refunds. My only alternative was to cancel my debit card and get a new one to stop the billing. What a hassle and definitely not worth the mediocre product.

This kind of deceptive hype is the worst of the Internet.

Like Tellman

I Have ADHD as well, and I know how difficult it can make your life sometimes. This man is an inspiration to us all and is proof of a few things.

1. That no matter what your disability if you work hard and apply yourself, you can truly do anything you want to do with your life.

2. That a great story can sell ANYTHING at all (like he says in tellman on traffic), and his is a great story and had me sold almost on the first paragraph.

Tellman is a great man and great marketer I recommend his services/products to anyone.

A little complicated, but helpful

Tellman Knudson in my opinion is an inspiration. He has achieved so much and is willing to share the secrets to his success.

Whilst I have tried to pick up as much as I can from Tellman, I feel that I cannot get the best out of his approach, however, as he tends to over explain things in rather a complicated way. Whilst not always a bad thing, I just can't get my head around quite a lot of his stuff, so I'd only recommend this if you already have quite a lot of experience with Internet Marketing. Certainly not a program for beginners!

Tellman Knudson AKA Santa Sal

I have to admit that this guy knows how to get conversions! I learned of him during his Santa Sal days, when he was giving a dollar to everyone that signed up. He does have some good tactics up his sleeve.

But I have to agree, once I signed up for his seminars, I felt like they both were talking over my head. I couldn't grasp the concepts that they were trying to teach, in a while I gave up.

Maybe if Tellman dumbs things down a little, more people will be able to understand and earn through him.

Marketers, Are You Ready For The Truth?

 
 
 
Inspirational

When I came across this man I was incredibly impressed. This man has to be one of the greatest online success story I have ever heard. Every time I feel like giving up on the internet money idea I remember Tellman and keep pushing. If this man could do it with all his "problems" then how could I just give up myself?

Is It Knudson or Casey

For some time I thought that Tellman and Shawn were siamese twins. Shawn Casey in my opinion is nothing more then a hawkster, and I am afraid it has rubbed off on Tellman. I was getting tons of the same email from both of them either selling overpriced items or cheap ebooks. Why do millionaires need to sell $7 garbage? The only thing that I like from Tellman is his blog DEARTELLMAN.COM. Here you can get some free info from him.

Tellman Knudson and Shawn Casey

I bought the Listbuilding opportunity with Shawn and Tellman last year. They were very convincing. Promises of making $10,000 a month in four months for $1997. I attended all workshops and I thought that Shawn Casey was just the money behind the thing. Tellman did seem to know how to set up a website, but after it was all said and done, there was nothing but a money tree sent to my home and a coffee mug. I almost forgot the money clip. Funny thing though, this year I received a Listbuilding workbook. I felt like it was just me that was too computer illiterate to grasp what they were telling me to attempt. Long story short; I did not receive any money back nor did I make a dime. They make you feel like you had better get in while there are a few spots left. Never again will I be so stupid. I am so glad that imreportcard.com came along. If for no other reason just to be able to finally express what I feel about the people who claim to be making millions. Do you really think that they want you to have a slice of that pie?

What's really funny is that shortly after listening to these guys, I would get emails from Shawn Casey pushing a product or service. About ten emails before his, I got the same email word for word from somebody else. This happened a lot. Do they really make that much money sending emails to the same people over and over? I just delete them now when I see their names.
