How I Escaped Database Hell!

Written by Marlon Sanders

(How an old 1996 database version kickedrepparttar tail end of Microsoft Access 2000!)

Dear Reader,

Why is it that I feel like I've been to hell and back?

If you email your prospects or customers, or if you know you should but don't, hopefully my experience will be of value to you.

Does any of this sound familiar?

I had a list of names and email addresses I desperately needed to send emails to. These were people who signed up to resell my product, "The Amazing Formula That Sells Products Like Crazy."

I had a ton of duplicates in my list. For some reason, people sign up multiple times. Yet, I only wanted to send them one email.

Emailing your list of associates, customers and prospects is absolutely essential. I felt humiliated that a stupid database problem was preventing me from contacting my associates on a regular basis.

My list was in this format:

12234 firstname lastname email

The data was listed on a password protected web page. I tried to copy and pasterepparttar 109680 list into Excel, so I could manipulate it, but that wouldn't work. It wouldn't separaterepparttar 109681 data into columns.

I tried Boxer 99, an ultra-cool text editor with remove duplicate liens feature.

But it wouldn't removerepparttar 109682 duplicates becauserepparttar 109683 first number on each record was different. Butrepparttar 109684 name and email wererepparttar 109685 same. To Boxer 99, it wasn't a duplicate record.

My email program is supposed to remove duplicate records. For some reason I still don't understand, it wouldn't zaprepparttar 109686 records for me.


Feeling exasperated, I decided to "get tough" and importrepparttar 109687 names into Access. Surelyrepparttar 109688 heavy duty database programs would pull through for me and end my misery and humiliation!

Have you ever tried to remove duplicates in Microsoft Access? Oh my gosh. Don't even try unless you're a professional!

I used a "find duplicates" query to locaterepparttar 109689 duplicates. But how do you remove them from your list?

Whew! What a nightmare. I never did figure it out. I tried to followrepparttar 109690 15 steps inrepparttar 109691 on-line help file, or however many there were.

But it didn't work.

You'd think there would be a button to click on that says, "remove duplicate records," right? It isn't exactly an unusual or exotic procedure.

Anyway, I hunted all over and tried out some other email programs, figuring that one of them surely would importrepparttar 109692 data in a format that would allow me to de-duperepparttar 109693 list.

But nothing would work. I tried exportingrepparttar 109694 list out of Access and then importing it into my email program.


Finally, a friend of mine said, "Hey, why don't you try Lotus Approach? You can do what you want in only one click!"

I tried to buy Lotus Approach at their web site. But if I remember correctly, I couldn't download it. You had to wait forrepparttar 109695 CD!

What are they thinking? It's called downloading. Hello!

Anyway, thank God I had an old 1996 version on CD. I wasn't confident I could install it since I probably didn't haverepparttar 109696 unlock code.

Thankfully, Lotus didn't require multiple unlock codes like a lot of software does today. And it wasn't an upgrade version that required you to hunt downrepparttar 109697 original version you bought back inrepparttar 109698 dark ages!

Like you can ever findrepparttar 109699 original version beforerepparttar 109700 3 upgrades you bought. You know what I'm talking about?

How I made $6,350 in 4 days using a simple method anyone can follow

Written by Marlon Sanders

Here is a simple little method you can use anytime you need money.

For example, this week I've made $6350.00 with it so far. I'll show you in this article exactly how I made that money.

Last month I made $13,000 in 2 week using it. It's so simple, it's almost laughable, as most of my marketing methods are.

Here is my fast cash promotion method. It's only two steps.

Step One: Compile an "opt-in" list

Step Two: Email my offer to your opt-in list

If you don't already have an opt-in list, then obviously this won't be a fast cash method for you. First you have to compile your opt-in list. I teach my students a number of simple, easy methods for doing this in my ebook at:

Byrepparttar way, if you aren't familiar withrepparttar 109679 term, "opt-in" list, it refers to a mailing list that people specifically and deliberately subscribe to.

In other words, they give you permission to send them emails.

Sending unsolicited emails is a gigantic "no-no."

Now, if you do already have a list of people who have specifically given you permission to email them, then you need a product to endorse.

Here are a few things to look for:

1. A 30% to 50% profit margin. 2. At least a $30 pay out (and preferably more). 3. A proven email sales letter you can use. 4. A reputable company that you know will deliver repparttar 109680 products you sell. To help my associates make money, I pay out a 60% commission on "The Amazing Formula That Sells Products Like Crazy." That is $40.20 per sale.

The key to making sales to your list isrepparttar 109681 endorsement letter. You must prefacerepparttar 109682 sales letter with reasons why you're endorsing that particular product. The folks on your list trust you, and will listen to your opinion aboutrepparttar 109683 product.

You don't have to write anything fancy. Just include a note that explains whyrepparttar 109684 product you're endorsing deserves their attention and how it will benefit them.

For example:

Here isrepparttar 109685 email that has made me over 6 grand this week. I sent it to my customer list. I prefer shorter emails but this one needed more explanation.


I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine who has helped me make a small fortune.

His name is Jonathan Mizel. And he has a legitimate genius IQ.

He works with companies such as these on Internet marketing projects.

* Intel * MyPoints * OnHealth * Microsoft *

These companies are raking in huge bucks (and I do mean huge)using a method called "per transaction" marketing.

And Jonathan is smack dab inrepparttar 109686 middle of this ultra-hot method.

He can show you how companies are growing from scratch to zillions in sales in remarkably short periods of time using "per transaction" marketing.

It'srepparttar 109687 only method I know that allows you to ramp up from small volume to large volume almost overnight -- without spending one freakin' dime on advertising!
