As you may have heard (we’ve mentioned it in Early to Rise once or twice), ETR’s biggest event of the year, our Info-Marketing Bootcamp, is kicking off this Sunday. Attendees will soon be hearing from the top experts in starting and growing profitable online businesses that have already begun to arrive.

But if you couldn’t make it to Bootcamp this year… you won’t miss out. As always, we are taping the entire conference and making it available on DVD. It’s kind of like getting a business start-up kit in a box. And you can go over the presentations as often as you like. (I find I pick up new insights every time I watch my DVDs from previous years.)

Our featured speakers this year include Perry Marshall, an AdWords/pay-per-click advertising expert… Drayton Bird, a direct-marketing/copywriting legend… and Joshua Boswell, a go-to product creator. MaryEllen Tribby will reveal the strategies she used to get her one-woman business off the ground over the past year. And, of course, Michael Masterson will share the secrets he’s discovered over his four decades in business.

From our experts, you’ll learn how to:

  • Get large amounts of money from small numbers of customers by customizing your websites in a certain way…
  • Pay Google for leads instead of just for clicks…
  • Build your own profitable e-mail list as quickly and easily as possible…
  • Use social networking sites to build your business the right way… and what you should avoid like the plague…
  • Create traffic-pulling online videos from scratch in just minutes… even if you’re a complete “technophobe”…
  • And much more

By the way, if you are a member of ETR Premium, you get the DVDs for 10% off. (Premium members get special deals like this all the time.) We’ll be making that deal available on Monday.

| Speaking of ETR Premium… |

As Laura mentioned last week, for just $5 a month Premium members get access to the top-level mentoring that Michael Masterson offers to his clients and the team here at ETR. I’m talking about the kind of strategies for business building, marketing, and more that have been directly responsible for the success of Early to Rise and dozens of other businesses out there — large and small.

And if you don’t yet have your own business or you work freelance — Michael will help you, too, with tips on productivity, goal setting… and just plain how to be your best at whatever you do.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ETR Premium.

| Ready to Take “The Pledge”? |

Michael Masterson’s new book, The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, officially launches on Nov. 15. But if you sign up for the early bird “hot list,” you’ll have a chance to get it before then. Plus, you’ll instantly get a sneak preview of the book to get you started.

The Pledge is a little different than Michael’s other recent books, which focused more on business and wealth building. In this one, he goes a bit deeper. He forces you to examine how you live your life… how you work and organize your time… and the little habits that — taken as a whole — could be preventing you from achieving success. Once you’ve identified your problem areas, Michael gives you the tools to fix them.

Yes, you can use his system to build wealth or start a business. But you could also use it to learn a language… improve your computer skills… have better relationships with your friends, co-workers, and family members… and become more productive than you ever were before. In short, it’s about improving your entire life.

We’ve shown pre-publication copies of the book to a select few people and word has been coming back. Here are a couple of the comments we’ve received so far:

“I’ve been an admirer of Michael Masterson’s work for many years, which is why I was so happy to see him tackle the all-important subject of his latest book. What I especially like is that he didn’t take the route of many self-development authors and simply offer worn-out, generic advice. For those serious about improving their lives — personally, socially, and financially — Michael has laid out a clear roadmap to success. This book is loaded with practical, simple, effective strategies that really work.”
