LNIM066 – The Sermon And A Guy Named John (no, not THAT John)

Mark Mason - Entrepeneur and Online Business Coach
A couple of months ago, my old friend Scott wrote me to let me know that he mentioned me and some things that I said in the show in a sermon.  Today, I finally tell that story.   I also talk about the current state of the corn sheller site and we discuss the situation of a listener named John — a guy that has lost everything and is looking to start over with internet marketing at age 61.
Huge shout-out to my friend Matt for starting off the show with something that is known is Dallas as a “BaD radio liner”. BaD (Bob and Dan) Radio airs on 1310AM “The Ticket” in Dallas, and is a huge sports-talk radio show (and Bob has a great sports blog too). Really famous people make “liners” for the show and claim that they never listen. Very cool stuff.  Thanks Matt!
Corn Sheller Update
The corn sheller site has been consistently getting about 200 page views a day for some time now.  That translates into about 600o page views a month.  You can see the stats here:

So, we know that traffic is still getting to the blog.  Then the question is what is happening to the traffic on the blog?  Is it still reaching eBay?  Well, the answer is “yes” — more than ever before.  But the traffic reaching eBay is not really converting.

So — the ultimate question is why is this happening, and what should we do?
 
The Sermon
For months I have been promising to tell the story about my friend Scott that mentioned me and some stuff that I say in the blog in his sermon.  Well, today is the day that I finally tell the story, and there is a business lesson for all of us.
I Lost Everything – A Guy Named John
Finally, I got this message from a guy named John.  We talk about it.
Mark,

I am desperately in need of an internet or passive income to prepare for my retirement. I am 61 years old and have absolutely nothing to rely on…. I have lost everything and now have No pension, no savings nothing… and am doing agency work which is very unreliable, not to mention intimidating.

Quite sad but it is all my own fault… wrong decision…greed…credit crunch…
Now, I need a solution and I see that for some reason or another you are very willing to help people establish their online business. Thank you and I would seriously like to take you up on that.
Liquid finances are a bit low but  I trust you will not make me spend unnecessary money. I have a Hostgator account and also a GoDaddy one.
My previous company was ….

I would like to start an Amazon affiliate business and thought I should ask your advice, hoping you would be kind enough to guide me. Maybe you have a better idea/s.
What I really would like is help to create a website that will earn me, say, a minimum of ten dollars/pounds per month. Once that is done successfully I can just repeat it (about a hundred times)…
Well that's all for now

Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience…
thanks in advance

John
Naturally, I have some advice for John.
