James' teaching skills are superb! I hold advanced university technical degrees and am a Board certified professional. James is among the top three instructors to which I have been exposed Patience! Patience! Patience! -- no question is too simple or too dumb! James provides access to acknowledged industry experts that you would otherwise never reach. Access is provided to business opportunities that you would otherwise never be afforded. Fantastic take-away videos and step by step tutorials for use at your own pace make success just a matter of your application.

Just wanted to say thank you for the past eight weeks of the BootCamp. We learnt so much and it has made a tremendous difference to how we are running the websites now. We can see a huge difference already. I am having so much fun with it all and for the first time my business partner has created her own website. It's become almost an addiction for her as she works on her website at all hours of the day and night. Would love to do the next bootcamp but we have decided that you covered everything really well so it is just a matter of us putting it all into practice. I am sure we will be doing another one in the future though so we can stay up-to-date. The bootcamp was excellent value for money. We didn't expect all the extra coffee talk chats and the guest speakers during the classes. I just think you both did a fantastic job.

I remember when we first started that one of the things we really wanted to see was real people making money online. But not only that, we wanted to know exactly how much they were making. We needed proof that we could do it too which is why listening to the Bronwyn Bamber Coffee Talks were always so inspirational. So we thought that you all might like to see what we made this month on Amazon to hopefully give you a bit of inspiration too. I attached a screen print of our Amazon earnings below but just in case it doesn't show up our total earnings for November were $14,680. I am very happy with the class. It has been worth 10 times the price and it has exceeded my expectations. I feel James has spent a ton of time on us and has gone over and above the call of duty. My confidence has increased greatly.

I've been trying to learn online business techniques and website building for the past couple of years, and this is the first and only clear instruction I've ever had. I am a senior citizen, and the internet is a new and often confusing world to me. James teaches in a straight forward, clear, and patient style. He does not presume his students are computer and internet savvy. His SUPER BootCamp is not at all gimmicky, nor does he try to sell anything. It is pure, honest instruction. I have learned so much that I feel like a kid again in a whole new and fascinating world. Thank you so much, James!

Great course. The best money I've ever spent for online business building. Keep of the great work!

The course was amazing. It was so much more then we expected. The interaction in the online conference room was 'just like being there' only better - we didn't have to leave our home to participate fully. The PAD technique is brilliant!

I've been just so busy that I have not had the time to send you a note of appreciation for all of the teaching and tutoring that you have provided...so busy being a victim of my own success for which I credit your BootCamp and Backlink Workshops. I have tried many other methods taught by credible and well noted authorities but by far your knowledge and experienced packed and "down to earth" delivery surpasses them all! Thank you very much for your passion in teaching us the "real" nuts and bolts of affiliate marketing.

Thank you so much Arlene & James! I don't know what to say.... This bootcamp has solidified everything you have taught! We thank Arlene, you and Adam as an awesome inspiration. Through this training we have learned commitment and focus are key but more importantly that it's not about getting it right, it's about getting going! We've also learned to take each challenge as an opportunity to learn, work together and realize our goal of having a thriving online business together! The real proof can today when I was speaking to a friend on our business. He ask what we were doing. When I told him he literally typed in the words I spoke and there was our site! #3 in Google! Thank you so much! Your commitment fuelled ours and we forever thank you!

We were happy to find proof that he does what he says and it WORKS. Today. All our questions were answered LIVE in the online conference room, leaving no stones unturned. The Affiliate Marketers BootCamp is a must for anyone serious about Internet marketing because all the overwhelming work is broken into detailed, bite size actions to take. The quality of the information and the effectiveness of the techniques James generously teaches are many times demonstrated. We were happy to find proof that he does what he says and it WORKS. We absolutely loved it!

I look back at how hard it was for me to even try to get something together before the bootcamp and I tried but failed. Now I have a quality website. I am excited.

I think the format for the online BootCamp is perfect. To have a week between steps allows me to study and digest the information at my own pace. It also gives me a deadline to have the work done. I see myself having everything I need to be able to replace my income and work full time in a business that I believe I will absolutely love.

Tony Miller

Great sessions - I particularly like the video and audio versions of each session - we can play back the video or audio as many times as we need to carry out a function 1 step at a time. Questions are answered at the same time as the instruction - which helps me understand the topic more completely. Mixing the Bootcamp with the Q&A means that questions that come up during the session review or later can be answered when they first appear and not be left undone for weeks on end.

The information shared on "Outsourcing" was a success, for me. It allows me to focus on other aspects of the business and not have to do everything by myself. And his relaxed and personable, presentation doesn't hurt either!

Thanks for the awesome session. I really like the staying at home online concept. It is really easy to plan it around my family and kids.

Yes! I have read the 2002, 2005 and 2006 manual along other ebooks and attended a live Bootcamp. All of it interestingly focuses back to the manual that anyone can get. It's funny that you think you are missing something but really you aren't. Live trainings and the videos just allow you to get your questions answered right then, and limits you wandering into google to search for your answers (and to later get confused or sidetracked). I am very happy I am doing this, it is narrowing my focus and helping me stay totally motivated!

I believe my experience at this BootCamp was the best investment I've ever made in myself, my family and our dreams. The networking I was able to do with as many fantastic people and the personal presentations of the material by James and the one on one time we were able to have with James, Arlene and the experts he brought to the camp. This opportunity has energized and motivated me to get to the next level of my affiliate marketing career.

Your material is the best thing that ever happened to me in my marketing business. Have a great week and thanks again.

Have not completed all the BootCamp videos yet but I must say that I am more than impress with James' knowledge and expertise. These are very professional videos and offer invaluable information. I am looking forward to completing them.

Any Internet publishers, new and experienced alike need the social interaction, "attaboys", and motivation that your Online BootCamp provides. So, kudos to you, James and Arlene, for the forum you have provided to all of us. I feel more confident in myself and my ability to pick relevant topics, and knowing that I now have the tools to reach my FULL potential! It's also nice to know that there are people on the Net who really care about the success of others and are offering a superior product, and your online book and online BootCamp does fit that description. James and Arlene, I am very impressed with you, your business acumen, and your ethical approach to helping others!

Mary Ruff-King


I was a long time ago student of Mr. Martell and wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to him for what he taught me. Since then I have built a site that has just about freed me from my jobs. All I have to do is repeat this process and I'll be there. This large site gets from 2000 to 2200 visitors per day and surprises me every day with the income it produces even more than 3 years after I finished working actively on it! So thank you James for laying the basics out for me to get myself free finally!

Pat Bowlin

I love all the details! Since I am new to affiliate marketing, but not new to marketing, I find all the affiliate baby steps, industry information and examples very useful. Thank you for sharing your expertise. I'm so happy I'm taking your course!

Jen Bowers


Thanks so much again to you and James for a great online BootCamp. And just hearing James "think through" the various steps and his answering the students' questions really gave me some excellent insight as to his thought processes. I can't tell you how many times as I listened my "a-ha" factor kicked in.

Ed Price


Thanks for all your efforts in providing the BootCamp students with the excellent, wide-ranging, up-to-date information you have given. The Handbook is 1st class, but we have gleaned many more nuggets of essential information from the online presentation and the interviews. It's hard to see what more you could do to 'load the dice' anymore in our favor re success in affiliate marketing.

Cheri Britton / Peter Appleby


I'm seeing my first site up and running and thanks to the wisdom from James and guests the knowledge to fine tune it, make it better and then go on to building more pages. I like the format a lot I would definitely do this again in the future.

John Grayson


The Interactive BootCamp adds another dimension to learning. I learn more in the interactive environment and in illustrative demos than from book, or having an "information dump" at a weekend BootCamp. Being able to view recordings is great - especially if there is the ability to fast-forward or jump to specific parts of the presentation.

Alan Blyth

I always appreciate it when James will ask the person he is interviewing to reiterate certain points, and in some cases request concrete real life examples of how certain techniques are performed. I find that his interview process reinforces the proper "mental model" of how to go about executing various techniques.

Christian Chapa

James gave me a completely new perspective on how to make web site building less frustrating and more fun. When it involved content creation I was finding that writing content for my site was very time consuming and a major mind block from me moving forward with my business. James showed me how to outsource all the content creation tasks so I can get on building my business. Priceless information.

Glenn Coleman


James opened my eyes to what was keeping me back - trying to do everything myself. With his tips on how to outsource a lot of my business, I can work smarter, not harder.

Chris Molnar

I would like to say that I am a complete newbie to building a web site and to the idea of building an internet business. The wonderful things about the Super Boot Camp were their organization, their schedule and the easy to follow instructions. I very much liked the fact that not only could you replay the video but you also had access to the printed script. For me I find reading the printed material reinforces the visual and audio material. The sharing of everyone's knowledge in the forum and the comfort of being able to ask questions without feeling totally foolish was very helpful to someone as knew as I am. Both James and Arlene are more than generous with their time, knowledge and support. Besides the formal conference room teaching, the question and answer sessions along with the Coffee talk interviews helped to add to the knowledge base. For me this has been a steep climb and they eased that process.

This training is helping a lot. I read the book and got bogged down a bit. This training really brings the book to life. I like the pace, the flow, the structure. I appreciate the care you take with your students - answering questions and guiding us along. I also like the "accessories:" audio interviews, educational videos, summary emails etc. This is one of the best training experiences I have ever had. Thank you very much!

Regina Schuler

I'm glad I did the BootCamp. It's kept me on pace, motivated me to go forward with confidence, and provided a lot of little "extras" of information that I wouldn't have received by reading the manual alone. I also like that I can ask questions when I'm confused and get an answer really quickly. It's making all the difference for me.

Kevin Flavin

The BootCamp was fantastic. No black hat, no tricks, no software solutions. It was all about the real deal...building quality sites. I enjoyed discovering how to properly set up site nav bars, how to set up a proper product page, how to link articles back to product pages and the importance of backlinks.

Bob Martin

There are many things I enjoyed about the BootCamp: James, you are a natural. You're born a great teacher, mentor, speaker, entertainer, and inspiration for you students. The ability for the students to interact in the conference room through voice and text messages. Live demos through the conference room browser and whiteboard and the ability for the students to get their questions answered through the forum and the help desk.

Donald Chee


Before I forget, Thanks to the both of you for a great course. I have taken many a grad school course in my time and all of the professors could learn from the both of you how to hold a fantastic online course. The materials are great! The support is unheard of. Kudos to the both of you. Thanks for everything.

Marian Owczarczak


I just wanted to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of your Online Bootcamp. The technology is amazing, especially the "whiteboard" feature where you can really show exactly what your thought process is for a particular point in the training. I especially like your follow up audios answering the students' particular questions and find that this ongoing feature has been most helpful to me personally. Your conversational approach in explaining your answers gives great insight and clarity to both the manual and the training. My "light bulb" has come on numerous times as I listen to your answers, "Oh that's what James means."

The bootcamp you are doing is awesome. I love the format and the how you answer every question.

Great, great class tonight. Thank you for your unending support to help us all succeed - I really appreciate all the "behind the scenes" work that you do!

Thanks so much for your great follow-up you and James are a pleasure to work with. Do keep me posted on the ongoing classes after our bootcamp, I would like to be a part of that.

Latanya Quince


Thank you for the homework! It keeps me thinking and doing.

Jennifer Bowers


Let me start off by saying "WOW" I am really enjoying the BootCamp. Even though you may feel a little strange doing the online conferencing -- I think it is working great -- I love the live teaching and the interaction. Way to go James!!

Linda Meadley


Thanks so much for the wonderful class you are providing. I am really enjoying it and learning so much, I'm so grateful to you and to Arlene for sharing your knowledge and experiences!

Jen Bowers


I know you both are extremely busy, so I just wanted to drop you a quick thank you for taking the time to critique my website. After last night's bootcamp, you can say I had a very eye opening, and believe this or not, a life changing experience when James was critiquing my site, and this feedback was truly important to me, and exactly what I needed to hear and witness for myself. I strongly feel that things happen for a reason, and I have been blessed to be a part of this Bootcamp, just for the fact that I really want to succeed in this business, and when taken down the right path, I believe one day I will be successful at this business. If you don't already know this, you both were put on this earth to change lives, and you're doing it through your passion to help others. Thank you for being true, thank you for your honesty, thank you for believing that success should be shared among others, so we all can develop and live better and richer lives. I know that this last part is going to be really corny, and believe me, as a past business developer in the cut-throat business world, I'm the last person to get mushy. I truly want to thank you both for just being who you are, and I'm honored to be a part of your vision and journey.
