"Intro To Internet Marketing"

Tele-Seminars to teach you how to
turn the "Internet into Income"!

Do you have something valuable you want to share with the world and make money from it at the same time?

Is this course for me?

Maybe you're a nurse, doctor, therapist, educator, healer, massage therapist, nutritionist, network marketer, health care business or spa owner, or even a smart stay at home mom. You have something that the world wants and needs.

You've gathered your wisdom, experience, knowledge (especially "inside" knowledge), from your profession, practice, or life experience and have created, or want to create, a program, system, technique, diet, product, idea, course, or book.

Or you might already have a program or practice firmly in place and you want it to be farther reaching without spending an arm and leg on advertising.

You want to "package" what you know in a way that you can streamline it through the internet. All you need is to find out how - without stopping the work you are already doing and spending a zillion dollars.

Why should I learn internet marketing?

To create another stream of income that is aligned with your current practice. . .so you can take your work to the next level.

To build or promote your current practice. . .so you can increase your exposure and client base and offerings.

To lay the groundwork for a new career or slowly transition your current career toward on the net . . .so you can be more independent financially.

To work from the comfort of your home while you continue to work. . . so you can save money and time in travel.

To create income now that will continue to flow in in later years. . .so you don’t have to keep working so hard.

What are some of the things I will learn?

  • *If you even need a website to get started - NO!
  • *What is the difference between a web designer and an internet marketer.
  • How to pick a name for your website and purchase it so it belongs to you.
  • What is a blog, why you would want one, and how to start one for free.
  • How to get the search engines to love your blog and website.
  • How to get people to visit your website and blog so they get to know about you, your practice, read your materials and visit your store, and buy from you.
  • Create and develop your own products (i.e.- meditation CDs, ebooks, video, audio) so you can sell at events or give away as promotional items.
  • How to create an automated learning course for your students, clients, prospects.
  • Start a newsletter, create an ezine, write an e-book.
  • Write articles and submit them to article directories
  • How to brand yourself and establish yourself as an expert
  • Put a store up on your website with your products

Introduction to Internet Marketing Course

Introduction to Internet Marketing Course:

Linda L. Smith RN, MS, HNC, CHTP/I, CCA

Listen to Linda's testimonial

Thank you for a wonderful and worthwhile course. I have practiced internal, preventive, and addiction medicine for over 30 years. I am well trained and credentialed in conventional medicine, and have a special interest and expertise in integrative medicine including use of essential oils and acupuncture. Because of a serious back problem, I was out of commission for awhile and now that I'm back I must choose carefully what I spend my time on. As a physician my goal is to empower people to be as healthy as they can as naturally as possible.

E. Joan Barice, MD, MPH

Hear Joan's Audio Testimonial

I've got lots of good information to share, but needed help sharing with a wider audience and getting myself out there. I knew the internet might be helpful but it was an unknown, a mystery, to me. That is, until I took your Introduction to Internet Marketing Course. The course opened up a whole new world of internet marketing. It broadened my perspective, and I'll never be the same again! I heard this analogy once, but don't remember the source: it was like going from viewing one's world as the inside an airplane cabin to viewing it as the universe! The course was just the thing I needed! You shared exactly what I needed to know, but didn't know where to start. You made it fascinating, fun, easy, understandable and it was filled to the brim with valuable, useful information. More than I could possibly apply at once, but best of all, available to review again anytime I wanted to in the future, as well as an invitation to attend future classes without charge. And plenty to whet the appetite for more. You generously shared your knowledge - you are a great teacher! Thanks for being accessible during the course - you were a big help to me. The interaction with the class was also a plus.You brought in terrific experts we needed to know about and learn from. Now I have an internet presence, and the tools I need to grow in internet marketing in the future. Marilee, thank you so much for offering this course. I'm so glad I took it, and I highly recommend it to others.

Marilee's Introduction to Internet Marketing teleseminar opened the door to a world that I never knew existed. Because I was so new to this, I really appreciated Marilee's systematic approach, her informal yet organized way she presented the classes and the quality of presenters. I was able to build on my knowledge from week to week and, if questions came up, I was able to listen to the recorded section for that week as well as refer to my notes. This format also allows great freedom as you can listen in from the comfort of your home and follow along via the computer to check things out right then and there. I love the idea that, as a graduate, I can take this course again for free; it will be an opportunity for me to put more pieces of my puzzle together. Thanks, Marilee!

"I have holistic healing practice working with both people and animals. I signed up for Marilee’s Intro to Internet Marketing course to help me “think outside the box” to grow my practice – and, boy, did it ever! I’ve got ideas and aha’s oozing out of my pores! The course came at a great time for me, because I’m just now starting to think about how to spread the word about my practice – and since I do distance healing, the internet is a great place to connect with people. But . . . despite being a computer tech-y, I simply had no idea about how to connect with people on the internet. Now, after taking the course, I’ve got plenty of ideas on how to use the internet to market my holistic practice, as well as to generate income from selling my expertise in information products. And I’m SO glad that I can be a “fly on the wall” and listen in on future IIM courses – because there was so much information covered in the course, that I know I’ll benefit from another round as I move from planning to implementing! Thanks, Marilee!"

Listen to Karen's testimonial

I was the different one in the group. Most of our class participants were holistic nurses, doctors, YL distributors, and those involved in healing modalities. Although I do practice “hands-on-healing,” and I am a YL distributor, and a Reiki Master, those modalities were not my main focus of wanting to do internet marketing. I have been a corporate trainer for the past 20 years. I want to take the programs I designed for businesses and facilitate those programs for individuals on the internet through what I call teletraining programs. I wasn’t sure Marilee’s program would benefit me, but because I trust her so much, I took her advice and signed up. It was the best thing I could possibly do for my “new career.” The activities and the professional guests were the best I have encountered, and that’s quite a compliment coming from a peer trainer. I will encourage anyone and everyone to sign up for this class!!!!!! Thank you, Marilee. You have a vested interest now in my success!!!

Never in my wildest imagination did I realize all the opportunities available to me regarding the Internet. I thought I would have a web site designed and start having people access the various products I am passionate about. Little did I know when I signed on for Marilee's class, all the new possibilities that would be open to me. Each week provided new words and avenues to explore from the many experts that shared with our group. I have page after page of notes that will provide me with guidance about the Internet. I have a new set of phrases and ways to market my passion for health and wellness on the Internet, to reach an audience much broader than I ever could have imagined. I also love that Marilee has offered to allow her alumni to attend future classes forever to help us assimilate and review this material and new material from her experts. Don't hesitate, sign-up, fasten your seatbelt because you are in for one wild and exciting ride! Thanks Marilee.

Dear Marilee,
I have spent thousands of dollars learning, or trying to learn, how this business of information marketing works. I have been face to face with experts and highly successful internet marketers. But your course was the best. What made it unique from my experience was that it was really directed towards people who generally do not have a background in self-promotion. In fact, those of us from a healthcare background struggle with ethics and legally on top of the whole complex field of marketing and using the new technologies to our advantage. You had a team of experts which were top notch but you and the other participants made it really happen because of the profoundness of your questions. These questions became the "translator" from the wonderful world of high tech to the world of a healer. And, the approach with the topics was systematic. In addition, your speakers recognized that one cannot just leap in at the top of the mountain and outlined the beginning steps. Marilee, your teaching, as usual, is excellent and you have tapped a niche that needs you! I would encourage any healers wanting to stretch into information marketing to absolutely take your course first!
Many thanks,
Maggie Burgisser

"Hi! My name is Mary Pat FitzGibbons. I am a nurse healer. That means that I divide my skills, time between traditional nursing practice in home care and a private healing practice where I use Healing Touch, Young Living Essential Oils, Nikken Magnet technology. I also teach.

"I want to let you know how much I enjoyed Marilee's 'Intro to Internet Marketing' course. It was a power packed 6 weeks where I learned about writing articles, e-books, press releases and how to setup my web site for sales. I learned enough information to keep me busy for months! I am an excellent nurse/healer/teacher. But, marketing myself - that is a foreign language. Marilee and her expert friends, presented the information in 'how-t0-steps". And I now have expert resources available to me. I am very confident that I can start marketing myself on the Internet. Her class was informative, lively and fun. I recommend it.. Thanks."

"I just thought the internet marketing class that Marilee presented was fabulous! It was so professional, a virtual wealth of information.  I'm just really happy that I took it and I will be implementing the information over time. I think Marilee was generous with her information and we get to repeat it if we want - I just thought it was wonderful "

Listen to Jeanie's testimonial.

"I am so glad I took this class. It was so informative and inspirational. It really was motivating for me to go out and make things happen. I am beginning to see results already. And as a busy Mom the teleseminar set-up is so convenient with the option to listen to the classes if I couldn't make it or wanted to hear the information again."

"When I started my private practice twelve years ago, I advertised in the yellow pages. That's how people found me. Today, thanks to Marilee’s internet marketing teleclass my web presence is how people find me. My little local practice is no longer limited by geography. I am able to help more people around the globe take the journey to self that Core Energetics is all about. I just googled 'Core Energetics + New Jersey' and my site, www.kateholt.info is the first link on the first page. Amazing! I am on the second page for "Core Energetics."

"This course was mind-blowing! There was so much great information, phenomenal presenters. . .really world-class presenters.  It just opened up a whole new world to me that I didn't know was available to me!  As a holistic practitioner I shied away from technology, I thought that was for the geeks and the wiz kids, this course really taught me that it is not so scary after all. . . I learned I can in fact do it myself and it is going to help me spread the word about my work.  I've been blogging since the first class which is really exciting, I'm working on writing some articles and press releases, and eventually I think I'm going to learn everything in the class.  It has been a great experience and to be able to do it sitting at home in my study with my little dog in my lap - it just doesn't get much better than that - and having the calls available afterwards was a huge help too because I found the calls were so jammed packed with information I just wanted to listen to it again.  Thanks again Marilee for making this information available - especially for those of us in the holistic community who never thought we could use the internet in these many ways. And, you said as alumnae we get to listen in again for free - I have to say that is the icing on the cake - thank you so much for a wonderful learning experience."

"I am so excited after finishing the Intro to Internet Marketing course with Marilee I joined two gurus on their teleseminars to develop myself personally and professionally on the internet.  I do not have a website, I am a holistic practitioner, I am a humorist and a clown so I have lots of interests, lots of talent and creativity but I never really knew what to do with it on the internet and with Marilee's help I was able to start up a blog - it was surprising to find out how easy it was -  and all of a sudden everything started unraveling in front of me so quickly, Marilee brought in all kinds of gurus that were so knowledgeable and helpful for people like myself especially because I don't have a website or a clear direction on the internet- I found that simply writing articles or writing a booklet can get me going. I am very grateful to Marilee - thank you so much - I was able to be at home with my children during all these calls and I was amazed at the amount of information that we had - it was a little overwhelming at first because I don't know a lot of the language at first and I wasn't sure how to plug myself in but we had an opportunity to listen to some of the calls and go back over them even if I wasn't present - thanks so much Marilee - my hat tips off to you - Woo - Hoo!"

"Taking Marilee's class has been inspirational to me, I have learned so many new ways to express myself both creatively and professionally.  Here is one example - we all learned how to set up a blog in the first class - and since I don't have a website yet I use my blog to list my workshops and articles along with my weekly postings on health and wellness.  Now I have an ongoing way to show people who I am, how I think and what I can offer them.  I've gotten great feedback on the content of my writing and I've been encouraged to create a workshop on some of my blog postings - how cool is that? There are several benefits to the format of the class:  I can learn from the experts without having to get into the car and travel to get to them.  Having a recorded version of the class means I always have access to the material.  Marilee has been really wonderful by providing us with these successful and well known speakers and that means that the information that we are getting is proven and reliable and trustworthy.  Want another reason to take the class? As a graduate you can take it again for free!  And this really made all of the difference in my case because having the opportunity to hear a whole new round of guest speakers again helps me to put together things in a way I just couldn't do the first time around.  I will admit before I took Marilee's class I was struggling with how I would do all the things Marilee suggested that were possible and that she herself has done.  I did a little research but I couldn't put it together on my own.  Marilee's class really has shown me how to turn my dream into a reality!"

Phyllis Lauer, MS, RN, APRN-BC

"I greatly enjoyed and even more greatly benefited by taking a tele-course with Marilee. I had never before taken a tele-course and it was very easy to do. It was much easier to fit it into my schedule as I am already working full time, going to graduate school, and have family responsibilities. It was wonderful to have verbal contact with the instructor, as well as to hear and be able to interact with the other students and gain from their comments and questions. The material presented was exactly what I needed for developing my ideas and for practical application for developing an online business. The guest speakers were highly knowledgeable and provided information that is essential for me. The guest speakers are also great resources referred by Marilee for potential use during and after the course. Marilee has also developed online printed materials that are essential in the development of your business. I had been thinking about an online holistic business for about two years. I’ve been reading everything I could find about developing online businesses and about holistic nursing and alternative health care. I had been trying to find my way in online business development and putting pieces together as I found them, however, Marilee’s telecourse and materials really put everything together for me, as well as providing some available resources that I could choose to use. I have used some referrals already and intend to use more of the available resources that Marilee taught about. Marilee has greatly shared her expertise and her experience to give a roadmap to developing my own business. She is a great teacher and has much to offer anyone from someone who simply has an idea they have been thinking about for a long time to someone who already has an on line business."

Thanks Marilee!
So much is going on … and I think the fuel from your class supported the process!!

I’m writing a series of seven articles on the chakras for a local magazine. I’m teaching a series of seven monthly classes on the chakras at a local book store. I have a new corporate client who is paying me to come to his office to treat his staff. I’m also teaching mind/body classes to his staff at lunch time. And … I’ve just had the three best months at my private practice ever! Interestingly, I have no time to blog etc … but I’m happy and things are going well.

Somewhere along the way, I asked you a question and you said … seems you’re at the building a practice stage. That was so helpful. I took brilliant notes on the IIM class and will use that in my next phase. In the mean time, this stage is flourishing. Thanks for getting me into writing again … and giving me the keys for when I’m ready to move on!

"I am taking the course for the second time which is wonderful because when I first took the course I was contemplating starting a business and it gave me a roadmap on the things to consider as I was moving forward and hiring a web designer and what needed to be in it - but it was a lot of information that was more advanced than I needed at the time but now I am in the process of building a website and launching a business so in addition to referring back to my wonderful notes I am able to listen to this next round of speakers and now everything is so relevant and helpful to me. It is just a wonderful group of supportive and generous lecturers - I think this program is fantastic.  I recommend it to anyone who is wanting to make their presence known on the internet and also wanting to monetize their great ideas"

I think it is really generous of Marilee to allow us to take the class over and over again as my travel business grows I know I will be needing more tools and this wonderful class will help provide me with the latest technology. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants their business to grow".
