This is a very nice offer.  I’ve been following you for several years now, using and recommending your products.  Using your information, products, combined with my own testing and products, I’ve ranked pretty well for some very competitive terms.  However I’ve not been all that successful at turning that in to a steady stream of cash.  One of the frustrations in the internet marketing area is that it’s hard to break out from the pack now.  There are so many people filling up inboxes with “me too” info and bad products, that it’s a very jaded market.  It’s also very hard to get a joint venture with a reputable marketer because they’re being inundated with so many requests from more “me too” people.   I have a small seo course that I sell, and I’ve been working on a serp ranking tracking program for a while that I’m just about ready to release.  It will not be ready for beta on May 3rd, however if you would like, I can let you review it as it exists now, and you could promote it to your list when it’s ready if you like it. 

So, if I have these things going for me, why am I responding to this post? My wife and I were ahead of the housing fiasco and one really bad decision combined with two layoffs and a new baby (#4 and no more!) all in 5 years really took its toll.  We moved to a much smaller house but still have a huge amount of debt that’s like an anchor to deal with.  I’m determined to dig our way out of it, and we’re making progress, but a jump start would be such a big help.  Luckily these difficulties have brought us closer as opposed to tearing us apart – so I consider myself pretty rich already!

Take care,

Hey John.  

Absolutely YES I could use a few extra dollars just like everyone else here.  
I read some very moving stories here for some folks who really need and probably deserve a helping hand.

I'd just like to say thank you for the opportunity and, if chosen, to 'pay it forward' by donating 30% of any proceeds gained from this to a charity of your choice, or to another reader here of your choice.

While I get by from E-commerce sites, I have in 3 years only managed to GROSS about $100 (NET would be seriously negative) from Clickbank, so I welcome the encouragement to try Clickbank again if I ever saw potential there.

Thank you for the consideration.

 :) well. Like others, I certainly dont want to be a downer and explain all of my life problems to try an persuade you to
choose me as there is always someone else in more need.

With that said, the reason I believe i deserve this wonderful break in life is because I have spent thousand of hours
and thousands upon thousands of dollars since I was about 20 years old, now 43, on so many income opportunities,
so many false promises, so many scams, but also many legit deals that just would not work for me.
 I have literally poured my heart and soul, not to mention hard earned money, into
every opportunity I signed on with only to fail once again.  I have worked closely with some top earners in some
of those network marketing deals where I watched others like myself do the same thing and succeed but I STILL failed.
Call me a loser, I've heard it before :o

After years of this I finally got a clue and figured out that some people are just meant to not be successful at these
kinds of businesses so I stepped back for a few years and just tried to be happy with my daily just over broke position.
That just doesn't happen, with me anyway.

Then I was introduced to IM and it all made great sense to me and I always hung onto that dream of someday being my own
boss but this time decided to be more realistic and realize that it is going to be a long building process and not to get my hopes
up too high and set myself up for failure once again.  I have read so much material and tried so many things with IM, have created
many blog sites, a couple that are goog page one, many page 2 and others not so well but I'll be danged if I STILL cannot make
anything that is worth while and I have already out well over a few grand into this already.  I HAVE made a few bucks from
adsense but that is it, even my site that has been in position two in goog for awhile i dont even get adsense clicks let alone make sales.
Even though that same thought remains in my mind and especially now i am totally convinced that some people, like me, are
just not meant to make money anywhere else besides their daily job, I have not given up and will slowly keep plugging away
but my family has about had it with me putting so much time, energy and money into this type of thing with little to no return,
and watching me fail miserably once again.
Thanks for listening to my rant .

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for looking for ways to give back. 

I, like many folks, was laid off in December 2009 from a 150K job, have 3 kids in college and a laundry list of bills.  The reality is that there are alot of folks struggling out there and rather than look at the challenges, I choose to focus on the solution.

I am committed to mastering on-line marketing at all levels and beyond that to do exactly what you are doing.  I will make 10K/month by the end of this year to take the pressure off of our current situation.  Look to gradually increase that to 20K/month and focus on helping other folks get out of their current situation.  Not by giving out hand outs, but by doing very similar things to what you are offering us now.

You choosing to select me would collapse time frames and take a tremendous amount of pressure off and more importantly, it would provide a conduit for helping others as we continue to succeed. 

So I applaud and thank you for your efforts.

Warmest regards,

Hi Jonathan, as I read all the responses it would appear that we are all here for the same reason: we are all in desperate need of increasing our finances for one reason or another.  Some people need it more than others.  I am no exception; I wouldn’t be here if I were independently wealthy.  Actually if I were independently wealthy I just might be at this forum or another one like it helping other people to be independently wealthy.  
My reason for starting this business is similar to most people here; to end my day job and build financial security for my family and my kids’ family.  My family is not my only motivation for doing this business; we have some friends that could use a helping hand also.
Everyone here I am sure will agree that there are highs and lows in this business.  My first high was my first sale.  I made $20, but the next day I got my first low, the product was returned.  I made $60 that month.  The point here is that I know if I can do it once I can do it again, and again until I get it right.  The past few weeks I have learned some big names in internet marketing and some of their accomplishments and they all put on live seminars which would be awesome to go see and be part of.  The one thing they all seem to have in common is once they built their business and money didn’t matter as much anymore it became more about helping others to do the same.  The focus is no longer on their needs but on other people’s needs.  This is an added motivation for me and I will get there one day.  
This will be a very tough decision for Jonathan to make and I am so glad I don’t have to make it.  Everyone in this forum deserves a break like this just because they are here.  They are doing what a large majority of internet marketers are not willing to do.  I believe you create your own opportunities.  This opportunity didn’t just happen and if I am not selected for this one I am sure another one will come along.   Good luck to everyone in the forum and thanks for the opportunity Jonathan.

Hi Jonathan

My Reasons for the beneficiary to put my ID in his report are

For some time I'm in the business of online marketing, but if a great success, although I have some money, still I can not devote myself completely and do not achieve steady sales.

My goal is to live quietly in the internet to take time off and able to help people of Hispanic, especially Latin Americans are still far from being able to dream of owning their own destiny and achieve financial freedom.

This is a dream I have and I know I will achieve only a matter of time and persevere to achieve it.

As for money is achieved with the sales, I would like to donate one hand, and I've read several stories that touched my heart, in this case you decide which people benefit from the donation.

I owe you for sharing your knowledge with us, and sorry for my English, not yet mastered it.

Greetings from Argentina!

Hi Jonathon,

Well this is certainly an interesting proposition. I'm not sure where to begin or what to say. Ok here goes, hope it doesn't matter how long it is  or how cohesive;D

Four years ago I opened a new business called "Fit For Teens" it was an actually physical business. I opened Fit For Teens hoping that I could help overweight teenagers get in shape and also help them to build up self-esteem and to just feel better about themselves. I did this by refinancing my house, yet again. (Yup I'm one of those people who's house is upside down now :()

I knew absolutely nothing about the internet at that point, I had my ex step-daughter build me a simple website, with basic information on it. I somehow recognized that I should have a website.

Well unfortunately my little venture was destined to failure (i quickly figured out that teens are not all that motivated, big shocker there huh?) and after a few short months I was forced to shut down. However before I shut down I ended up going to Ryan Lee's Fitness Bootcamp weekend seminar. I got totally blown away while I was there, because the very last speaker at the event was a woman named Susan Hill. She had been a fitness instructor and had somehow learned how to build a membership site. The membership site was a membership for golfers and  had over 11,000 members after only a little over a year and she got paid $10 per month per member. I was truly inspired and I went home and thought that's what I want to do. I want to be Susan Hill. If she can do this, then why not me? Her name is Susan and she is the same age as me. Must be a sign!

So after I got back home I started checking out different things online that I had no idea even existed before the seminar and came across Google Cash, which I bought (but I couldn't wrap my head around it), then I found Butterfly Marketing, bought that too, then it was one guru after another. I've spent thousands of $$ and I continue to spend a lot of money every month, that frankly I really can't afford to keep doing. But I love internet marketing. I want to make my living online. I want to make a good living online. I've been living paycheck to paycheck for my entire life. I have no savings, I have no retirement. blah blah blah, I'm like a million other people.

Fast forward 4 years and it's still what I want to do, but somehow I keep missing the mark. Life keeps getting in the way. I've been working as a nanny (can't seem to get away from kids, I'm a single Mom of 4) for the last 2 and a half years. (I'm 52, way too old to be doing that kind of work lol.) My stress level is through the roof, even though I adore the kids I take care of, it's so exhausting I can't even describe it to you. My mother lives with me and had breast cancer 2 years ago, plus diabetes, copd and dementia. Not a fun time taking care of her, much as I love her. I could go on about this and all the other ways that I'm having issues, but what's the point. I'm sure you get the picture.

One of my biggest problems online is I have computer ADD. I think that this is a "real" disease and needs to be recognized! I get so sidetracked all the time, that it's ridiculous. However even with the computer ADD, I now know a lot about internet marketing. I know a huge amount about SEO, some of it thanks to you Mr. Ledger. I've taught myself so much stuff and I've accumulated all of this info in my head, but somehow I can never translate it into money. I have almost made it to the $100 mark with Google Adsense, yeah! Of course it's been close to two years, since I started making pennies with adsense. lol But it's starting to pick up and this month it may reach close to $20 for the month, amazing. So I'm going to give myself a pat on the back for that!

Recently I decided that if nothing else then I could certainly start my own little SEO company and help local businesses. So I got me some new business cards, set up a website, joined a networking group and realized that I'm going to have to go out and solicit businesses. Oh man what have I gotten myself into? I do not want to do this. It terrifies me. I get all tongue tied when I have to talk to new people and my self-esteem drops down to somewhere near my feet. I'm going to have to make myself do this and get out of my comfort zone. Which of course will not be a bad thing. But I still don't want to do it. But I know that I'm an expert in SEO and I can do this. I chant this to myself a lot.

The truth of the matter is I don't deserve this any more or any less than anyone else. I'm sure there are people with worse situations than mine and ones with better situations. I'm just trying to do the best I can and I would love the chance to win this opportunity that you Jonathan Ledger are so graciously offering.

I have been a fan of yours for a couple of years and have bought several pieces of software from you.  I've done a lot of lurking on your blog, I don't like to write stuff all that much or make comments very often.

Did I also mention that I have ADD when it comes to writing? I'm terrible at writing, which has been a big hindrance and I'm sure that you can tell this after reading my post. Hope it wasn't too painful to follow.

Honestly I would be truly grateful to win this. I keep trying the lottery, but for some odd reason haven't had much luck yet. You're my best hope. Hey but no pressure and no hard feelings either way, I'll still lurk even if I don't win :o

Sometimes I don't believe you can make enough money online to sustain one's needs. I have accounts in Clickbank and PayDotCom for 3 years but up until now I have had only 2 sales from both companies with all the efforts and financial resources fully exhausted. To me, this internet marketing is a promise to only few selected people whom I called 'chosen ones'. Rain does not fall equally - I kinda agree somehow. They say this business is a level playing field but It's not based on my experience. Call me pessimistic but darn I say I am. Will I still continue with my online efforts? I don't know.

Thanks for giving back. I do hope I can do the same but that hope always ends up with a question of how or when?

Your avid follower,

Ok, here is my story...

I have been duped by some scams online, and I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get my online business going. I have a goal of being debt free this year, because I want to not only help my family, but I want to share my success with others to also help them achieve their dreams of freedom. I want to be one of the good marketers online to help others to help themselves.

I would be very grateful to have your help, and I would "pay it forward" to help someone else as well.

Advance thanks for your help,

Why should you choose my Clickbank id?
My life is like a country song.
My son just returned from Iraq and for the second time he has helped my wife and I financially to send his sister, our daughter to rehab for drug addiction. We would like to be able to pay him back.
My wife suffers with "MS."
We would like to write for a grant to pay off our home, fix it up and give it to an organization or agency that will use it for a Transition House (a 72 hour home and a safe haven for drug addicts who are seeking help and rehab) so they won't be turned away or back on to the streets to use and die.
Like a lot of people we are struggling financially.
I am a minister and consult with churches that are experiencing conflict and do not have a pastor. The church I am working with now will have a new pastor by June - so I will be out of work.
IF you use my ClickBank id:  yursuccess
even though I have needs I will DIVIDE THE MONEY, I MAKE, BETWEEN 3 OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WRITTEN IN THIS FORUM -- in exchange for 8 hours, one day, of personal coaching from you.
Thank you for your kind gesture.

Using my IDs in your report would be such a big help to me and my family, Jonathan. As you said, this is one tough economy and finding work is very difficult.

My goal is to get rid of our debt and develop my online business to the point that it provides a sustainable income so that I can do what you do: spend more time with my wife and kids.

The little money I'm making from my sites comes mainly from Google Adsense, which helps, but doesn't make much of a dent in our debt. I plan to strengthen the niche sites I have and expand a bit more into new markets, but I'm finding it difficult to get the time to achieve this considering my responsibilities as father and husband.

This report would definitely give me the boost I need and ease my stress so that I can focus more clearly on all that I need to do.

Thank you for this generous offer, Jonathan. :)

Jon, I'm going to be 61 in a couple of weeks and I've been trying to start a business online now for a little over 2 years.  When my business of 14 years went down the drain 4 years ago and I lost my home 2 years later I went out in person and online trying to get a job and finally I get the call back on a job that could of solved all my problems and they offered me 80,000 and then told me the only left to do was their corporate office would have to run a credit report because the requirement was a credit score of no less than 640, after hearing those words it felt like my heart stopped beating, so I told him we would have to end this conversation now since I knew my c/r would not come back at 640 due to my forclousre.  This is when I figured out at my age I was going to have to find another way to support my self, so like so many others I went to the internet not to make millions but to make a decent income and be able to live my  last 20 years like they were meant to be and to help my son and his wife do the same and as many others as I could.  I don't want anyone to have to go thru what  I have. Sixty years old, no savings, no IRA's, no nothing, and no light at the end of the tunnel for possible retirement.  My goal is to move to Calif. where my son lives so I can be closer to him, but after 2 years and massive amount of money spent on guru promises which I had to use my mother's credit card and help every month just to keep a roof over my head, I still haven't made a dime.  Everytime I get close there is another snag that comes up and I can't find an answer.  

No w I find out my landlord hasn't been making the payments and I have to be out by June 21st.  I was so hoping by now I would be making enough money to be able to move and at least be able to rent a place when I get there.  But to date I still don't have a list.

After reading everyones story I feel bad even responding to your most gracious offer.

I have an idea for you which I don't know if this would even work but here goes.  What if you split up your offer to all the people you feel deserve it.  I'm sure by the sounds of it,they would all be very greatfull for whatever they received "something is better than nothing."

Even if I'm not one of them it sounds like a good idea to me.

I wish all of you who respond to this wonderful offer  good luck in creating your dream. And may we all be able to pay it forward someday soon!!!

Hello Jonathan,

I think it is very nice what you are trying to do by helping others out here. I am a true believer, that if those that are better off in their lives, take just a brief moment to turn around and grab one person's hand and help to lift them up in this world, what a truly blessed place this would be. Have a great day. :)

God Bless

Hi Jon

This is the first time ever I participate in something like this, even though I've seen similar offers made by marketers this one is just
to good to just let it pass by. I've been struggling online for a couple of years now and I must say that it was a lot harder than I initially
thought it would be.

I now live off of my wife's salary and has been doing so for over a year, I manage ta make affiliate sales so that it cover my fees for
hosting and software(your software lol) but it's not much more than that.

Anyway, this would be an enormous booster in income I guess so I hope I'm the lucky one

I didn't expect a successful internet marketer would actually help to give out his "$$$" to help someone!
