Who Gave You Your Independence? (4th Edition)

On this 4th of July, 2009 I am writing my 4th edition of “Who Gave You Your Independence?”

What is this?

The following are links to the websites of those people who had a particular influence on my online and offline businesses this year.  It’s my way of thanking those that gave without expectation of receiving (as business should be conducted).

Without further ado…

John Delavera

John is one of my online mentors, a friend, and creator of The Turbo Membership which I have been a member of since January 2007.  Thank you John for coaching me on high-level internet business growth over the last 2 1/2 years. 🙂

Ryan Healy

Ryan has been on my list for Independence Day almost every year I believe…and is a dear friend, and fellow copywriter.  If you are interested in learning about marketing, testing, and copywriting…his website comes with my highest recommendation.

Ben Settle

Ben’s unique style of delivering extreme value, never really “asking for the sale” as many try to, but building a super-affiliate business…is a style I try to emulate in my own offerings.  He is also a copywriting colleague, but rarely takes on new clients.  Visit his website and get his free documents…you’ll learn more than most paid courses.

The Late Gary Halbert

I don’t need to say much about The Prince of Print (unless of course you don’t have a marketing pulse, shame on you if you don’t know who Gary Halbert is).  Even though Gary has sadly passed away, his website lives on as a prime example that focus on delivering content first, and “marketing by accident” as I term it, still builds businesses.  His family still runs the website, which is a thousand dollar course in marketing by itself…should you choose to read it.

Anthony (Tony) Blake

Tony Blake is a marketing master with over 20 years of experience as an offline and online marketer.  His forum is almost a staple for entrepreneurs, and you should join today if you haven’t yet.  Many high-profile marketers are members.  Go to http://www.ablakeforum.com to become a member.  Tony inspires everyone he comes in contact with, and freely shares his wisdom.  He’s on my personal Skype list.

Well, that does it for this year, if anyone happened to be left off the list, and you feel you should be included…please don’t take offense…and know I appreciate everyone I come to know as a friend online.

Until the next time we look in the mirror together,

Joseph Ratliff - Have a great Independence Day!
