Here's how we record and produce audio learning programs that retail for over $100 a pop - in just 3 hours each, start to finish - and make up to $6,000 a week or more selling them online....
Dear Internet Marketer (or Soon-to-be Internet Marketer):
"I want to get started selling information products over the Internet," JT told me the other day.
"But I'd rather sell something other than e-books," she continued.
"There are too many e-books being promoted out there, and with the prices as low as $19 each, I'd have to sell a lot of e-books to make a six figure Internet income," she said.
So like I have done for many of my readers, I recommended to JT that she create and sell audio programs online ... just like my partner Fred Gleeck and I have been doing for years.
Now don't get me wrong....
E-books are a great product to sell online -- and I sell plenty of them.
But the truth is I make more money online for every audio program I sell then I do with my e-books.
Most Internet newbies ... and even many experienced Internet marketers ... don't seem to realize what an absolutely terrific information product audios are to sell on the Internet.
And here's why Fred and I are such active online marketers of audio learning systems:
- High profit margin - I can sell an audio program that costs me less than ten bucks to manufacture for over a hundred bucks ... giving me a healthy 10-1 mark-up.
- No writing required - E-books have to be painstakingly written. But when you create audio products using the method Fred and I are going to teach you, you just talk into a microphone -- no script required.
- No proofreading - Customers find and bug me about typos on my printed e-books and reports all the time. But no one complains if there's an occasional "uh" or "um" on your audio products.
- Quickest product to create - An e-book can take literally months to write, design, and publish. When you use the audio creation process Fred and I show you, you can have your audio product created and finished, from scratch, in about 3 to 4 hours max. Some of mine have taken only an hour or so!
- Higher perceived value - E-books have a modest perceived value; you can charge maybe $29 for a 50-page e-book. But an audio album containing the same amount of content can easily sell for up to 5X that much -- anywhere from $100 to $150 or more!
- Increases your online sales - To make five grand in revenues with a $19 e-book, you have to sell over 260 units. But with a $147 audio album, you can make that $5,000 selling only 35 units!
- Broader audience - Some of your customers are audio learners and not readers. With downloadable MP3 files and audio CDs, you can create products that have greater appeal to these buyers.
- A real time-saver - Your customers are busy and have little time for sitting down and reading information today. With an audio CD product, they can absorb your information while driving, exercising, or working around the house.
- Great affiliate sales opportunities - a 50% sales commission on a $19 e-book is less than ten bucks ... hardly enough to attract affiliates to sell it. But a 50% commission on a $100 audio album is fifty bucks - an attractive pay-off to affiliates for promoting your audio products to their lists.
- Stops online thieves - With audio CDs , the buyer who requests a refund doesn't get his money back until he returns the CDs, which you can promptly resell to another customer. You also cut down on refund requests, because customers like keeping the audio CD album for future reference.

Praise for Bob Bly's Info Products
"You are awesome! I will always come to you first for the products that I need. You have class, integrity, brilliance, naturally gifted, and you are second to none! I am impressed with and appreciate your prompt response."
"Once in a blue moon, you get the chance to meet a living legend, one of the great men who has shaped his chosen field. In my unending pursuit of powerful marketing, I came face-to-face with just such a man. Robert Bly is America's Top Copywriter and a genius marketer. He's authored over 70 books for McGraw Hill and others, and gets paid more per word than nearly every author in America. Like all great men, he is a teacher and mentor extraordinaire. He freely shares the secrets of turning marketing into money."
"Bob, your stuff is always so good that even though I'm retired now, I have to read it!"
"You are someone I've grown to admire greatly. You share your knowledge with and encourage people in achieving their dreams, trying new things, and learning tricks of the trade. It's a rare 'guru' in our world today who is thoughtful and kind enough to help up and comers find the path to success. In my opinion, you are the very best. I'm grateful to you."
"During the past 20 years, Bob Bly has become one of America's leading direct response copywriters. He has probably done more to teach other writers the craft of effective and persuasive writing than anyone else."
--Roger C. Parker
"After considering a number of high-level marketing professionals and reflecting on the matter for several weeks, I made the decision to ask Bob Bly to share the stage with me for my Twin Keys to Wealth-Building Conference. The reason I chose Bob is because I am convinced that he can deliver more tangible value to conference attendees than any other marketing or Internet expert on the planet."
--Robert Ringer, best-selling author
"I have huge admiration for your work. You're one of the few guys out there selling real information -- and selling it at a reasonable price! I think what you're doing is head and shoulders above others."
"To me, the product promos you've been sending have plenty of content. I look forward to your e-mails, because they are great idea generators. When an e-mail marketing message from you comes in, I follow it to the pages and then read and digest the sales copy. That alone is a goldmine to me. I love your grounded hype-free style. People should just model your approach and they would be wealthier for it. Thanks a lot for all the good stuff you've created over the years."
"The products I've ordered from you have been so good I've recommended them to others [and] your price points are very reasonable. Thanks very much for the content, the lessons, and the model to follow."
"I get great value from your free materials, so I have no problem with your commercial content coming to me too. I've also received good value from the products I have bought from you."

Every day I get calls and e-mails from people imploring me to help them get started in Internet marketing with audio products the way Fred and I churn them out one after the other.
Until today, they were out of luck. My hourly rate is $500. And with a 20-hour minimum consulting fee, payable in advance, you have to write a $10,000 check to hire me.
Yes, I know that's a lot for an individual just starting out. But I deliberately price myself out of range, because I hate consulting and coaching.
No worries though, mate. Because now, in Internet Audio Profits, you get our proven method for producing and marketing audio programs that sell online.
And it won't cost $10,000 ... or $1,000 ... or even $500 to learn our tricks of the audio trade!

Bob Bly is a full-time freelance copywriter specializing in direct marketing. He earns more than $600,000 a year from his writing, speaking, and consulting, and became a self-made multi-millionaire while still in his 30s. He also earns an extra $200,000 a year, working only a few hours a month, with his spare-time Internet marketing business ... and now he wants to show you how to duplicate his "Internet Marketing Retirement Plan" within the next 18 to 24 months!
A copywriter for more than a quarter of a century, Bob has written promotions for over 100 clients including Phillips, Agora, KCI, 21st Century, Weiss Research, EBI Medical Systems, Sony, IBM, AT&T, Grumman, Crain Communications, McGraw-Hill, Intuit, and AlliedSignal.
Bob is the author of more than 70 books including The Copywriter's Handbook (Henry Holt) and Internet Direct Mail (NTC Business Books). He has published more than 100 articles in such publications as Successful Meetings, Direct, Business Marketing, Writer's Digest, and Amtrak Express.
Bob's writing awards include a Gold Echo from the Direct Marketing Association, an IMMY from the Information Industry Association, two Southstar Awards, an American Corporate Identity Award of Excellence, and the Standard of Excellence award from the Web Marketing Association. He also taught writing at New York University.
Mr. Bly has appeared as a guest on dozens of TV and radio shows including The Advertising Show, Bernard Meltzer, CNBC, and CBS Hard Copy. He has been featured in major media ranging from the LA Times and Nation's Business to the New York Post and the National Enquirer. He was a featured speaker at the 2006 annual conference of the National Speakers Association.
After years of writing winning online copy that made his clients rich, Bob decided recently to launch his own Internet marketing business. In creating the "Internet Marketing Retirement Plan" in collaboration with Fred Gleeck, Bob took his online business from zero products - and zero income - to over $4,000 a week in net revenues. He did it in less than 6 months, and now is on target to make over $220,000 in annual online sales working just 20 minutes a week!
Known as the "King of Content," Fred Gleeck is widely recognized as a highly ethical, no-hype marketer of information products. Many consider Fred to be one of the best (if not the best) teacher of "how to make money selling information products online."
Fred has created more than 300 audio learning programs, e-books, software packages, and other information products, all of which are marketed online. He is the author of 15 books including Selling Products from the Platform and Marketing and Promoting Seminars and Workshops.
With more than 20 years experience as a speaker and seminar promoter, Fred has spoken at dozens of seminars and boot camps - both his own as well as other people's events - to thousands of attendees. He regularly presents at both the Learning Annex and the National Speakers Association.
While there are many teachers of "Make Money on the Internet," Fred has developed a unique, low-cost, low-risk approach that today generates for him passive income approaching a million dollars a year, with no employees.
