Insider Secrets, Access to Experts, and Step-by-Step Resources Assembled for Creating and Running Simple and Easy Multimillion-Dollar Information Marketing Businesses
My name is Robert Skrob, and I’ll give you some personal background a bit later.
Successful authors, self-publishers of books, people who sell home study courses, personal and business coaches, newsletter publishers, and seminar promoters turn to the Information Marketing Association for the critical insights on the business side of running a successful information marketing business. This information gap can only be filled by creating a full-scale trade association for the information marketing industry.
First, let me tell you about the “brains” behind the IMA. Then, your benefits. Finally, I’ll describe the big picture of our future together as an association. Please be patient and read all of this thoroughly. It is a huge step forward for the “odd” and little understood business we’re all a part of!
An Industry Dream Team Working for You!
The IMA’s chairman emeritus, Dan Kennedy, is widely acknowledged as the leader in developing the modern information marketing industry. Certainly more people have gone from zero to multi-million dollar info-businesses under his guidance than by any other means or mentor, and virtually every significant breakthrough in this industry in the last decade has come from Dan and his clients, including the now common continuity and forced continuity approaches, the ascension model, every means of selling high-priced coaching, boot camp add-on days, contests to promote coaching and on and on and on. To learn how to use his most recent breakthrough, info-marketers each paid $12,000.00 to attend a three-day briefing. Four different info-marketers pioneering this newest business model each went from zero to over $1 million in income within 12 months. Dan’s roles with the IMA include exclusive contributions to resources, strategy suggestions for making the association as valuable as possible to its members, bringing in key industry leaders to participate and acting as a general advisor.
My own experience includes 20 years’ developing and managing trade associations, and consulting within that industry. My main business, Membership Services Inc., is a successful association management company with dozens of different associations under one roof, including Florida Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus and Florida Association of Professional Employer Organizations. Instead of each of these associations having to hire its own staff, rent office space, hire writers for publications, etc., my team “turn-keys” everything; the associations outsource it all to us. In addition to the associations we completely manage, hundreds more look to me for consulting and copywriting of materials for member recruiting; conference, convention and seminar promotion; and sale of exhibit space and sponsorships. Recently, I’ve begun turn-key development of new trade associations owned by information marketers, and, incidentally, access to that service in the future is restricted to IMA members.
Obviously, I have my own crackerjack staff and freelance team already in place to provide many important services for IMA members.
I serve as president of the IMA, frankly have financial stake in it and have re-arranged my other business affairs to give it the lion’s share of my personal attention and energy. As we get to the collection of member benefits on the next page, you’ll see how my extensive experience, contacts and services already in place are going to benefit you!
Oh, and I might mention: I’m a long-time, serious Kennedy student. I’ve been in Dan’s coaching groups, consulted with him privately and dramatically improved my businesses and income thanks to his counsel. He has had opportunity to personally, closely observe me and my work, and it was at his urging that the IMA be created with me at its helm.
In addition to Dan Kennedy and me, my staff and my elite outside network of experts, the IMA will have a board of advisors made up of leading, innovative information marketers.

The No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letter* and the INFO-Marketing SPECIAL REPORT are written personally by Dan Kennedy, and they ARE the gold standard of the entire industry. Each month, Dan takes you behind the scenes and inside his and his clients’ thriving, explosively growing info-businesses. He is THE leader of this entire industry, at its center, and more new, cutting edge discoveries and opportunities and information flow through his office than anywhere else. As a subscriber, you virtually “camp out” in his office, at his private consulting sessions, and “cherry pick” from everything coming and going through his clearinghouse! Here is exactly what you get:
Six times a year, every other month, you get The No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letter. That’s 12 to 16 pages of “meaty” news, strategies, examples from info-marketing successes, how-to strategies, Dan’s viewpoints and more. Each issue is jammed tight with insider information you can’t get anywhere else–because nobody works up close with as many info-marketers as Dan. Nobody! If you merged just his Platinum members and private clients together as one corporation, its sales would exceed $250 MILLION, which doubled last year and are doubling again this year. In this Letter, you get insider peeks at both long-established, mature info-businesses and brand new launches … including those that zoom from zero to millions in just months. Dan shares the resources, vendors and experts relied upon by his most successful clients … copywriting, ads, sales letters and online marketing examples … trends and predictions. Through this Letter, now in its fourth year, Dan has guided readers through revolutions and breakthroughs in info-marketing–like continuity, done-for-them services and big-ticket area-exclusive programs–and Dan is presently preparing readers for the Next Big Things. This Letter is meant for ACTION, not just reading and reference … ALL of the top info-marketers, including anybody you might know by name, eagerly await each issue–and chew on it like starving dogs that just found a juicy steak–to extract money-making info they can put to use immediately.
And that’s just the half of it …
In the alternating months, six times a year, you get Dan’s No B.S. INFO-Marketing SPECIAL REPORT. Each REPORT is an in-depth presentation on just one aspect of the info-business. This is advanced information. Past REPORTS have delved into a wide range of subjects, from “what info-marketers can learn from cults” to “newsletter business inside secrets” to “lead generation magazine advertising.” These REPORTS vary in length, sometimes including many exhibits, other times not. Dan chooses the topics and material based on questions from subscribers, current work with clients, new opportunities or, frankly, what interests him at the moment. Each REPORT is a unique and valuable reference you’ll definitely keep and refer to again and again. With each one, you build a library of “insider information” on different info-business “component parts,” businesses-within-businesses and critical success strategies. These REPORTS are NOT available to anyone other than No B.S. INFO subscribers, via their IMA membership or separately, and these REPORTS often contain information Dan never shares elsewhere.
IF YOU WANT DAN KENNEDY PERSONALLY CONTRIBUTING HIS BEST STRATEGIES AND MOST VALUABLE KNOW-HOW TO YOUR INFORMATION MARKETING BUSINESS, this is just about the only way that can happen.
*The No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letter should NOT be confused with the “regular” No B.S. Marketing Letter that all GKIC® Members receive or with the No B.S. Marketing-To-The-Mass-Affluent Letter separately available. These are separate and different publications. The No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letter and the No B.S. INFO-Marketing SPECIAL REPORT are included in your IMA membership.
Robert Skrob hosts a teleseminar each month. These calls expand and enhance recent insights into the info-marketing industry provided by the Dan Kennedy INFO-Marketing SPECIAL REPORTS and the No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letters. Sometimes these calls will feature guests to expand the content; other times there will be additional case studies and examples. But they will always include time for your questions and comments about the latest breakthroughs in the info-marketing community.
To help info-marketers grow their businesses, avoid obstacles and get questions answered, Robert Skrob hosts special tele-coaching calls for all IMA members. These calls use an open question and answer format. You are welcome to call in to “eavesdrop” on other info-marketers getting the answers they need to grow their businesses ... or you can call in with your own questions.
Many members face “information overload.” All of the information and choices overwhelm them, and they don’t know how to begin. They need someone to talk them through their experiences and their interests and to give them a step-by-step plan for building their information marketing businesses. Beginning in 2010, this opportunity is available to you as a member of the Information Marketing Association.
Robert is hosting special 45-minute private one-on-one consultations to give members an outline for progressing in their information marketing businesses. Robert regularly charges $1,200.00 for a minimum two-hour consulting and coaching call. As an IMA member, your investment for your 45-Minute Private One-on-One Info-Marketing Success Consultation is only $247.00.

A growing number of people in the United States are uninsured. In 2007, 45.7 million Americans were uninsured. Although many of those without insurance do have jobs, the self-employed, part-time workers, low-wage earners and people with pre-existing medical conditions find barriers to obtaining coverage - and less than half of all small companies offer health insurance to their employees.

These event feature structured networking, connections made for you based on profiles and open networking opportunities. Quite frankly, there has never been a better way to make business connections and to close deals.
Throughout the conference we put you at different tables, matching you up with other IMA members based on simple one-page applications you submit in advance. This way you get to network two ways: 1) seek out and find people you know are important to you; and 2) discover people you never knew existed via match-ups by the proprietary Connections Quotient™.
This is a high-results day in a working and productive environment to help you make the connections you need to grow your business.

7 Huge Benefits Together For One Low Dues Investment
If you’re anything like the small number of information marketers I had “preview” this collection of benefits, by now you’re really, really, really curious—and probably apprehensive—about the costs of membership!
I had them guess, and the lowest guess was $3,000.00 a year.
Those who got my “preview” were shocked at how low we set the dues—and, of course, insisted on joining immediately. I expect you’ll react the same way! All of the Exclusive Benefits of Membership are only $99.00 a month. There is no obligation to continue your membership for any period of time. Of course, you may cancel your membership at any time, with 30 days’ notice.
Everything I have ever sold has a completely unconditional money-back guarantee. This is no exception, so here it is…
IMA’s Total Satisfaction Money-Back Guarantee
If at any time during the first 60 days, you aren’t completely satisfied with your IMA membership, with a simple request you can: 1. cancel your membership; and 2. receive a full refund of everything you have paid. No questions asked, no hassles.
Keep in mind, your monthly dues INCLUDE Dan’s No B.S. INFO-Marketing Letter (for most, more than $50 a month if subscribed to separately), the new monthly business teleseminars and the copyright-free content for your newsletters and products—each of these resources by themselves easily justifies these modest dues!
What To Do Next? Enroll, Of Course!
Use the enclosed member registration form, and fax it to 850-222-6002. Hurry, to be sure of being in the charter group, at the lowest dues.
You’ll get confirmation, a New Member Manual with everything you need to access all benefits and services, a Member Hotline number should you need to call, email instructions, the logo art on a CD and more shipped to you immediately.
