Who Else Wants To Have The Fun And Joy Of Creating Super
Cool Graphics, Images, Ebook Covers, And Headers —
Faster, Simpler And Easier Than You May Think?
1. Are you frustrated with the costs of Internet
marketing? Would you like to know how to eliminate or
greatly reduce most all the costs?
2. Does your face wince when you think about spending
$300-$500 or more for graphics for each site you create
3. Do you sometimes wanna be able to whip out your own
graphic in a hurry vs. wait 1-3 weeks for someone else to
get around to it?
4. Do you wanna be able to customize and dress up
templates so you don't look like every other site on the
5. Do you wanna have the joy and exhilaration of creating
your own graphics?
I'm not saying it's all brain dead simple. But I've taken
a complex issue — creating graphics — and made it
amazingly simple and doable for the average person.
Plus, I've stripped and removed TONS of other costs from

B. “The Basic Dilemma Of Internet Marketers That You're
Probably Struggling With Also — And What To Do About It”
By Marlon Sanders
There's a basic dilemma all Internet marketers face:
Learn the new methods that get better results
Do the basics that you know work.
If you want to make maximum profits, then you need to
learn and use the latest methods on the one hand.
On the other hand, if you want to make maximum profits,
you have to DO things and FOCUS. You can't learn
everything and do everything.
It's a classic double bind.
If you spend all your money and time learning new things
to get better results, then you don't have time to DO the
things you know work.
At the same time, if you spend all your time DOING, you
often miss out on the easy profits created by newer, more
state-of-the- art methods.
This puts internet marketers in a real time crunch because
a person can't do both — learn all the new methods
hitting the market practically weekly AND also DO what
needs to be done to make a profit.
What's the solution?
I call it breathing. It's a natural rhythm. You learn.
Then you do. You learn. Then you do.
If you get stuck in learning and don't do, you won't make
the most you can. And vica versa, if you DO but don't
learn, you'll spin your wheels and quite possibly not
In my case, I'm devoting this whole entire year to
implementing just one new SYSTEM of thinking in my
I started on this system one year ago. And I let myself
get quickly sidetracked last year. I decided that this
year, I want to take the one concept and fully and
completely implement it.
I talk to some marketers who just don't know what they're
doing. They REALLY need to learn more. They need to learn
about writing copy, graphics, doing surveys, finding
markets and product creation.
On the other hand, there are MANY marketers who HAVE been
in this business 3-5 years and know all the basics and
some of the advanced stuff.
Yet, they just don't get products out. They don't get
promos done. They get caught up in the paralysis of
analysis and don't do ANYTHING.
That's why the natural rhythm of money is to learn and do.
Learn and do. If what you DO doesn't work, it's time to
LEARN some more. But if you haven't DONE what you've
LEARNED, it's time you focus on DOING for awhile.
A lot of people get stuck on that point because DOING is a
pain in the tail end a lot of days. You ALWAYS are going
to be afraid of making mistakes. You are ALWAYS going to
run into frustrations and things that don't work right.
It's ALWAYS going to take longer and be harder than you
But the people who succeed can tolerate the PAIN OF
ACTION. It's easy to sit back and learn. I love it. But
DOING means you run into obstacles and things that don't
It means you're confronted with the details of learning
programs. It means you'll screw up and make mistakes.
Worse than that, it means you'll DO things that don't
For every 1 thing that WORKS, you'll likely try TEN that
don't. And I don't care WHO you are. If someone denies
that, they either don't have much experience, they're
lying or they aren't honest with themselves.
I remember discussing this whole topic with Corey in times
past. I would think I was the only one who had such and so
thing not work right. I'd talk to Corey and find out that
he'd had the same exact issues.
It made me feel a little better that I wasn't the only one
in the world who had things that didn't work as I
I hope this article gives you a little more clarity on the
fundamental dilemma of Internet marketers and puts you on
the path to greater profits.

D. Ask Marlon Sanders!
If I buy templates, do I need your Design Dashboard? How
will it help me if the graphics are already done?
Templates can help you save time. But here are things they
won't do for you:
1. Ebook covers — Design Dashboard shows you how to do
2. Handwritten notes in the margins, guarantees and so
forth. Templates won't do those for you.
3. Testimonial photos — You can dress them up, put them
in frames and so forth. Templates won't do that for you.
4. Customizing the graphics on the templates. With a
little knowledge you can do a LOT that helps you break
through the noise and stand out from the crowd. Which
means in the end you'll sell more.
