Success Alert Description

Success Alert is a book written by John Evans. John brings together successful Internet entrepreneurs across many different types of businesses and markets and interviews them to help marketers learn what they did and how they started out. The entrepreneurs range from ecommerce store owners, to eBay marketers, to owners of multi-million dollar businesses.

Success Alert Detailed Overview

In the Internet marketing world, we’re bombarded by advertising messages that promise big success and earnings. But the truth of the matter is that most of these advertisements come from Internet marketers who make their money selling to others who are interested in starting an Internet business. It makes you question if they have the skills to actually launch a real business or if they just copied other content from other courses and marketers.

Where can you find real success stories and get insight from real Internet entrepreneurs that have built unique businesses? Success Alert is a book that interviews real entrepreneurs, from people running an online candy business, selling obscure products on eBay and many other different examples. These are not your everyday Internet marketing gurus but are everyday people who have succeeded in various niche markets.

In one of the interviews, John interviews a marketer who runs a business that does 18 million dollars annually. I got a really good glimpse on how he uses search engine optimization for his business and how profitable it can be if you do it right. I was happy to find out that he used basic tools like Wordtracker to help his SEO campaigns. When I hear about a multi-million dollar business, I always have the idea that they are using some advanced custom software, so it’s really reassuring to know that you can build a successful business with tools everyone else uses.

In another interview, there’s an example of a woman selling organization products to the tune of six figures annually. Her interview really showed me how important it is to run a newsletter and build a following of readers. I visited her website, and I found that her content was really top notch. I also found she had used affiliate programs to drive traffic to her site. This gave me many ideas about laying out my site and how to connect to people in my market.

I have to admit that I initially expected a book that asked cookie cutter or useless broad questions like “what’s the secret to success”, but I’m glad I was wrong. John Evans has taken the time to ask great questions for each of these Internet entrepreneurs to help the reader get insight into their success and what kind of strategies they’re using.

Success Alert Reputation

What makes this book unique is that John had put thought into this and studied each entrepreneur’s business so he can ask customized questions about their business. You also get the exact URL of their businesses so you can study them and look at what kind of strategies they are using. It’s not every day that somebody with a successful Internet business gives you the strategies and the website to look at, so I find this kind of information very valuable.

I’m glad that John chose entrepreneurs with businesses that are really different from each other. I don’t know how he got these entrepreneurs to really start talking, but I’m happy he did. All in all, I highly recommend this book. If you’ve wanted to start a business online, this book will give you many ideas of different business models and give you a clear picture of what works and what doesn’t.

Excellent but not for beginners

Both volumes of this book are highly detailed interviews with internet business owners with a summary of each given at the end of each chapter. Most modern business models are profiled ranging from membership websites through to eBay businesses and a wide range of other online retailers. If you are a beginner then the book will likely be a little too complex but anyone with an intermediate knowledge will learn a lot from the interviews. I certainly did.

Average product

In Success Alert, John Evans compiles several interviews with successful entrepreneurs that have made over millions. Personally, this ebook was just average. The information in this book can be found in several other similar books. The entrepreneurs reveal their tips and tricks that have led them into making a fortune, but it's nothing inspiring or jaw dropping. A lot of the information from this product is very basic and well known in the marketing world. The helpful tips from these entrepreneurs should be known to an advanced marketer. I didn't really gain any new knowledge from this product, for I knew most of it. The interviews were very simple and proceeded to explain each entrepreneur's business strategies. The strategies themselves are very confusing and advanced for the average marketer. I had trouble understanding what the techniques that were described, but I tried to implement them as well as I can. Unfortunately, I wasn't as successful. This product just isn't for me - there is nothing extraordinary about it.

Really helpful

I really liked this e-book. It's definitely worth the money because it explains everything step by step. At first it may be kinda confusing and hard to understand, but if you read it again, you'll understand. It also explain how John Evans made more than $15 million in a year.

Success Alert helped me a lot. Since I'm using these strategies, my website has gotten more traffic, and I got more clients for my business.

Marketing Guru's

I liked the book "Success Alert" but it did not help me very much in my marketing ventures. There were interesting stories on how people made their money, but that was about it. Even though John makes $18 million per year, it seems confusing on how these people even made their money. The people in the book gave their strategies, but it doesn't work for everyone. This is a good book, but not very helpful to me.
