Anyone heard of Ed Dale in Internet Marketing?
I've been kind of quiet around here since I joined. I got into internet marketing thanks to a guy named Ed Dale, who each year sponsors an event he calls the "30 Day Challenge", where he guides people along the path to making their first buck online.
Has anyone else had any experiences with him or his methods? I'm on a paid site of his where he teaches tactics in depth, and he is currently promoting a very expensive "link service" to boost the PR of your pages. It's very fast and very powerful...but...I'm just wondering...is this more a short-term scam than a long-term strategy? Will this sort of thing last? Has anyone seen it?
I read a post from Adrian or Sean (I think), where someone mentioned internet "gurus" who have gotten into the habit of pumping up each other's products with a lot of hype, knowing they'll have short half-lives. Ed seems to be a great guy, but this concept he's pushing smells funny for some reason, and I wanted a more experienced person's assesment.
It seems to me that Mark's methods and those of all of the folks here are more about strategies that aren't necessarily about making quick bucks in the short term, but rather more tried and true methods, that although requiring sustained effort, are more assured to pay off in the long run because they're solid.
