Easy Access to Experts

Today the Internet Marketing Grind [aff link] opens up for users to sign up to their private forums. These private forums have kind of been a big thing the last 18 months or so as it seems a new one pops up each week. As someone who has a day job, I personally love forums because it is an area for me to lurk like crazy whenever I am bored. In addition though you get several benefits to joining a private forum.


  • Exclusivity & Community – Often times a forum will limit its membership base so that if you don’t have some sort of referral or early entry…you just can’t get in. In addition the pricing weeds out 99% of the assholes you are going to have to deal with on public forums like WickedFire.
  • Access to Experts – Almost always forum providers of any caliber will have some sort of expertise that they now grant to you as part of your membership. Nothing is better than now having some multi-millionaire who responds to my texts immediately to guide you in an unfamiliar area.
  • Elite Content – If the forum you are going to pay for has no elite content that you can’t find elsewhere. Ditch it, you are not going to get your money’s worth.
  • Sharing of Elite Content – On good forums, the community feeling is so tight, that others are willing to contribute their own niche expertise to offer everyone even more value for their money.

Back in May of 2010 I got a chance to join Ryan Gray’s Internet University program. As a fledgling of internet marketing at the time, I can honestly say that the program he ran with Richard and John was awesome. It definitely taught me everything I needed to know and then some. Ryan’s ongoing help afterwards was priceless as well.

I remember when I was doing my first direct site media buy the guy wanted a reference. No sooner did Ryan offer to vouch for me saying that I was an active advertiser on one of the largest wrestling entertainment sites in the world that he runs. Those kind of credential perks, you just can’t get anywhere else.

Internet Marketing Grind Not only have I experienced tremendous amounts of success but friends I made along the way have as well. I remember convincing one of my close Internet marketing buddies to join around the same time and how excited he was about 3 months later texting me, “I JUST HAD MY FIRST $1,000 DAY!” Those are the kinds of stories we all want to tell but most don’t get to achieve.

Looking at the overall content already in their community forums is crazy! They over all kinds of categories of affiliate marketing: Advertising, Pay Per Click Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Email Marketing, Mobile Marketing, Cost Per View Marketing, Lead Generation Arbitrage, Monetization Tactics & Strategies, Merchanting, Call Centers, CRM’s, Payment Gateways, etc.

You will probably literrally pick up years of knowledge in days of being a member.

Their cost is $77 a month which is very reasonable especially compared to some other popular forums out there. PPV Playbook (Which I HIGHLY recommend) is $67 a month and StackThatMoney forums are $99 a month. Unfortunately neither one of those forums have a huge network owner like Ruck specifically running it!

Bottom line, I’m signed up for the Internet Marketing Grind community. I didn’t even think twice about. I know from experience how awesome Ryan is at running a community and I think its obvious to everyone that Ruck can make you a millionaire. I encourage everyone to sign up, see you there.

*DISCLAIMER: I wasn’t asked or paid by anyone to write this post. I did however supply an affiliate link in the above (where noted) that I stand to gain a commission on if anyone signs up through. I was drafting this post before I saw an affiliate option anyways but threw it in there for an extra change. To be honest I don’t even think there is dollars related to it right now. If that’s not your thing feel free to sign up with a non affiliate link HERE.

I signed up as well without really thinking about it since I know the quality of content Ryan puts out. So far looking through it the content is pretty solid,

Hey I joined up too. (Which makes me member of all 3 forums)

I've tried to absorb all 500 threads into my puny brain and now have fluids leaking outta my ears.

I'm glad to say I'm almost done now after 2 days, so time to put'em into action.

Kang which one is the best then!?!

I'm staying in STM and PPVP for sure 🙂

IMGrind has info about everything lol, and it's about more long-term stuff so I'd say each has a different focus.

To sum it up, I'd say..

STM = Winner for social traffic sources
PPVP = Winner for PPV stuff
IMGrind = Long-term business, diversified income, list-building, i.e. not suitable for the newbie looking for a quick buck.

Is that me you're talking about up there? LOL
I second the review here – IMGrind is excellent. Registrations are closed for the moment, though. You snooze, you lose.

…perhaps I was.

Forums are a really nice place to share but especially receive great information and stories.

You can learn a lot from your own mistakes or successes but you can learn even more from OTHERS mistakes and successes. Sharing valuable tips and do/don'ts can really make the road a lot more smooth

I wasn't impressed with IMgrind……I found alot of the posts to be cut an pasted from other sources….and alot of very general ideas, just seemed to be lacking orginal content….
