The Weekend Super Deal has just opened and this week David Allen is offering resale rights to 12 quality products.

Don’t miss out on this one, these products would make excellent stand-alone or bonus offerings but you have to get in there quickly because this deal is removed on Sunday:


Domain Name Speculation

Back in August I wrote a short blog post about domain speculation, in particular 4 lettered dot com domains.

You can read that particular post here:

LLLL.com Domain Name Availability Decreasing Quickly

I wish I’d followed up on that particular post as they have now all been registered.

If you did read my blog post, I hope that you took the opportunity to register a few of these types of domains when you had the chance because it just got a lot harder to get hold of them.

As of last week every 4 letter dot com is now taken, all 456,976 of them.

This means that if you want one now, you have to buy it in the aftermarket – you can’t just pop over to GoDaddy and register one.

Over the past couple of months the number of available so-called LLLL.coms has diminished rapidly as domainers across the globe have added a few to their portfolios.

It’s all complete speculation, of course.

LLLL.coms have sold out but there is no guarantee that they will ever be worth a significant amount of money.

However, I have been able to make a little profit out of this sell-out event.

In fact, a domain I won at auction a couple of weeks ago for $70 was snapped up for $200 within 20 minutes of me listing it.

And I’ve got another 18 to sell!

Could be an interesting couple of months!

Lazy Lay Profit System aka “The Coffee Break Millionaire”

After I mentioned this system last week I decided to give a test.

I’ve got the manual now and have studied the exact system I need to use. It’s all remarkably simple to follow and so I am putting some seed capital aside and following the plan for 30 days.

When I am finished, I will publish the exact results for everybody to see. Hopefully I will be well in profit and will have a new “cash cow” to milk.

The plan is to start with £200 and risk 5% per betting opportunity.

(The system says 10% but I am extra cautious.)

If/when the £200 doubles I will remove £200 and play with the winnings.

Last night was a mixed night – two races, one win one loss but the second horse lost by a mile – it was never actually in the race really.

So, fingers crossed that this one works and I can make some money!

Sunday Times Biz Opps Ads

Call me sad but I have a large collection of the “Business to Business” pages from the Sunday Times going back about 2 years.

It all stems from first discovering Tim Lowe’s method of selling biz opps – I wanted to keep track on which adverts constantly appear in the paper.

My reasoning is that if they are appearing week after week, they must be working. They would then be the ones to model an advertisement on if I ever decided to sell through a small classified ad and website combination.

It’s very interesting looking back from the first ads I have to the ones featured this Sunday just gone.

Looking at the adverts from July 31st 2005 I can see two particular opps which have stood the test of time:

(1) Vince Stanzione’s Spread Betting Opp and
(2) the “NHBusiness” newsletter

Both are still advertising in the paper – Vince’s advert is almost exactly the same now as it was in mid 2005.

Unfortunately, over the two years I have been watching these adverts, I have seen a lot of people appear for only one week and then disappear forever.

One particular week I saw no less that twelve people advertising exactly the same opporunity on the same page of the Times.

No doubt that was a great week for the Times but a terrible week for everybody advertising those particular DVDs!

I’ve never took the plunge with an advert in either the Times or the Mail on Sunday but I did have a go at advertising in the Exchange and Mart.

You can read about that unprofitable experience here:

Advertising Offline to Drive Traffic to a Website

Unsubscribe Comments

If you run a newsletter through a service like Aweber, as I do, it automatically questions somebody who unsubscribes from your list.

Basically it says “Please can you take a couple of seconds to let us know why you have unsubscribed“.

Many people don’t bother writing anything but there are some kind people who take the time to let me know why they decided to stop receiving these newsletters.

For example, here’s a great one from Thursday:

“Mainly because I cannot keep up with so many emails reaching my inbox, when I seem to be moving house frequently and can’t do justice to anything extra.

Thanks, Ben, and the other reason really is that I lost such a wedge of money to [name removed] and also [name removed], that I am disillusioned with practically everything which tells me I can make some money.

You’re a good man. You wanted my reasons. Sorry!
[name removed]”

I’m very grateful for his constructive comments and sorry to see him leave the list.

However, the second unsubscribe comment I got on Thursday was far less constructive. It simply said:


Well, you can’t win them all!

Your Emails

I’ve got a fair few emails to reply to so please bear with me if you have written to me in the last week or so. I will try and catch up over the weekend.

A few people asked about the same things from last week so I will try to cover those topics here:

First of all, the RentaCoder person I used who did such a good job on my friend’s website goes by the username “abha” on the RentaCoder website.

He’s got a great rating and is apparently in the top 25 of coders worldwide as rated on RAC.

The other opportunity that people have been asking about is the “Information Entrepreneur’s Circle” from Streetwise.

I did write a little about my thoughts on this one on a blog post which you can read here:

The Information Entrepreneurs Circle from Streetwise Publications

If you have signed up for this one I would be very interested to hear your thoughts.


Don’t forget to check out this Weekend’s Super Deal from David Allen.

He is offering a load of quality products with resalerights but only until Sunday so go and look now if you wantin on the deal!
