SamCart Reviews? Useful?

SamCart Reviews? Are they helpful? Here’s how we can help each other…

By Mark Attwood | Marketing

Most SamCart Reviews will contain an affiliate link. Nothing wrong with that. That means if you click the link in the review and buy SamCart, the reviewer will get a commission. It costs you exactly the same, so no issue, right?

Well, that depends if the reviewer has added value and told you the truth about why you should definitely use SamCart is you want to make money online as a digital entrepreneur.

So, let me tell you exactly why my review contains an affiliate link (here it is) and why I think you should absolutely go for it with SamCart, the world’s highest converting online shopping cart and sales page software.

SamCart Pricing

I first came across SamCart and Brian Moran a couple of years ago and was mightily impressed. So much so, that I started using it right away and made sales right away.

Not a lot, but I made sales. It was my fault it wasn’t a lot, not SamCart’s or Brian’s, I hasten to add.

Back then, I was living in Morocco. I had sold a business in the UK and I didn’t need the money.

I had been working online since 1996 and had built the world’s first online skip hire service which went on to make over $70m (I didn’t keep all that!).

I was bringing up my 5 kids with my wife.

Life was sweet.

I had a 7 hour course online that sold for $2000 (you can watch the whole lot on my homepage here, but read this post first!)

I was making goofy video diaries like this:

I was playing at internet stuff because I loved it, but was a bit burned out from the previous intensive 10 year period.

I had a short attention span because I was busy having too much fun.

I’d fallen into the trap of thinking I was retired. I’d made it.

It was a classic working-class-boy-done-good scenario.

I used SamCart to release a PDF guide to SEO, some consulting, some SEO services and a few other things to my email list.

Here’s a screenshot of some of the stuff I sold (you can see I first used it 3 years ago):

Cut forward to 2019 and I’ve just been through the year from hell.

We moved to Ireland and my marriage broke up.

I won’t go into the gory details, but this was the lowest point of my life.

I thought I’d lost my beloved kids. I’d lost most of my money. I was suicidal.

Rock bottom sucks.

Especially after being on such a high for so long.

But, if you’ve ever been through this kind of process, you’ll know it does slowly get better.

One of the things that kept me going, apart from the support from some incredible friends, family members and healers, was my email list of people that I’d worked with over the years. They encouraged me, sustained me and basically kept me in business, kept me alive.

I will be forever grateful to all of them.

Although I’d lost the motivation to repeat my huge online successes from the past, I was somehow just about managing to pay the bills, feed my kids and stay alive.

BUT I had totally lost my mojo.

For 18 long months I was in survival only mode.

The idea of making a ton of money again just didn’t interest me any more.

So, this is the reason why I am not just reviewing SamCart here, but actively encouraging you to at least take a look at what the founder, Brian Moran, has to say about it through my affiliate link here.

Brian is one of the most down-to-Earth, honest and brilliant people I have ever seen in online marketing.

I’ve never met the guy but I promise you if you watch his webinar to the end you will be absolutely convinced and gobsmacked at his story and what he has created with SamCart. It is truly a stunning product that absolutely WILL make you a LOT of money.

You just have to listen to his story and ultra-compelling sales pitch here.

Look, I’ve hung out with some of the biggest names in internet marketing over the years. I’ve even fallen out with a few of them for ridiculous reasons. It’s a world full of ego and insecurity and people who hold back their best stuff because they want it all for themselves. But the reason SamCart is simply the most essential piece of digital marketing software in the world is because Brian created it to solve his own problems.

And that’s when the best products get born.

Because necessity is the mother of all invention.

Brian has solved all the headaches and make it newbie-friendly to create a single page funnel that gets rid of the need for all the complicated stuff like Clickfunnels, woocommerce, infusionsoft (confusionsoft) and all the rest.

This is 100% real.

So, the reason I am promoting it?

Because If I can make just 10 sales from this blog post, I will be able to afford the $997 fee for the 1 page funnel package, which I really, really want.

Look, I’m not completely broke. I have a digital marketing agency that’s doing just fine with a lot of great projects on the go.

I am getting my mojo back.

I am going to kick ass again.

But, for now, $997 is a chunk of change.

I just upgraded house. The kids have just started school. I’ve got a big tax bill coming.

You know the drill.

So, instead of writing a bullshit fake review and saying stuff like “this review “may” contain affiliate links” I decided to just tell it how it is.

As a bit of background, this is what I achieved online before my life got turned upside down:

  • Created the world’s first online skip hire service,, which generated over $70m and is still going strong today
  • Wrote a book called “The Best Digital Marketing Strategy in the Galaxy (Probably)” which you can get for free from
  • Spent over £5m of my own money on Google Ads
  • Was called an “an SEO genius” by Mark Joyner, publisher of the world’s first e-book and considered to be the Godfather of Internet Marketing worldwide since the 90s.
  • Lectured across the world on digital marketing
  • Created the first online University course on digital marketing for Manchester Met Uni
  • Created a 7 hour video course on the basics of digital marketing called “The Technophobes Guide to Internet Marketing Success” which you can watch for free at
  • A 5-star rated instructor on

I’m climbing back up the hill of success and I want to thank you for being part of that journey.

This is my affiliate link right here. Just click it, watch Brian’s amazing sales pitch and buy it if you can afford it.

I know it will be a great decision for your business, and a massive help to mine.

I love helping people and today I feel inspired to help more.

This is an email I got just today from a client in the UK who is one of the one’s that helped pick me up when I was down. His name is Lucky Giddons and he’s a posture expert in Birmingham. This text below is what he’s going to put up in a forum for his industry later this week (thank you Lucky!)

By focusing on helping people like Lucky I am managing to rebuild a life for myself and be a better father for my kids….

“Hi guys. I just wanted to let you know about a digital marketing guy I have been working with for the last 12 months. His name is Mark Attwood.

I know a little about digital marketing and was able to go from zero income to a very busy clinic within my first year of business using online marketing only. When Shreena and I first spoke to Mark, we knew he was the real deal.

We have been working on;

•          Maximising our Google Adwords spend (now have double the leads for the same spend).

•          Ranking the website better for our top keywords (went from 90th to top 20 for Chiropractor Birmingham – and I’m not a chiropractor). We are page one for many other keywords and dominate for posture correction.

•          Getting more organic leads (virtually all our leads used to be from Adwords, now a third are organic leads)

•          Using YouTube to help keyword ranking.

•          With his help over the last year, our turnover has doubled, we have higher quality leads and I am not wasting time on marketing that does not get results.

As you will be aware, every man and his dog reckon they are a digital marketing expert nowadays. I get contacted almost daily by these guys.

Mark has a lot of knowledge and experience and has helped me stop wasting money and time on marketing that does not convert and focus on what really gets great quality clients. I think he is currently managing £1.7 million of Google Adwords spend per month.

We have big plans to massively promote ABC online over the next couple of years and he could help you do the same.

Please contact him if you are interested by phone or email and tell him I sent you.

Since, I have been the guinea pig for this market, you will find it even easier to get results.

I really want ABC to succeed against all the nonsense out there, so if all of us reach more people with our message and keep doing a great job by pushing our technical skills and understanding, we can really make a big impact in the world.


Please leave a comment below. I will try and answer all of them.

Thank you. Namaste.

Easy Way to Make Passive Income on the Web

By Mark Attwood | Marketing

Here’s a really easy way to make passive money…

1. Go here: – make sure you refresh the browser, then the prices for different home services leads across the US are displayed.

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 15.25.51

2. These leads are sold 5-6 times i.e. they are not exclusive.

3. This means that if it costs a builder in Florida $100 to get a lead from homeadvisor to fit a basement out, you can easily sell a lead to them for $150 as an exclusive lead.

4. Pick a niche. I’m going to use demolition – Bloomington – Indiana – as an example.

5. Go to your YT channel and set a LIVE event up for the keyword (in this case, I’m going for “Demolition company bloomington indiana” P.S. Don’t forget to go to advanced settings, choose the location, then move the map pin a little bit so you get a grid reference. YT loves that shit).

6. See if you can rank near the top of YT by checking the KW after a couple of mins. Took me 30 seconds to get to no.1.

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 15.45.03

Even ranked 1 for “demolition company bloomington”

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 15.46.54

7. If you do, then go an get a virtual US number and make a video to actually broadcast during the live event.

8. Use this software to do the live broadcast: and then do some social signal links using this software:

9. Contact all the demolition companies in Bloomington (insert your own niche) with a pic of your video at the top of YT (and hopefully also on Google) and make them the offer, first come, first served.

10. Rinse and repeat as many times as you like.

Is SEO Dead? Is It Buxton!

By Mark Attwood | Marketing

Is SEO Dead?

This question always makes me laugh. I’ve been hearing people proclaim SEO is dead since 2001.

The best way for me to answer this question is to take a look at one of our clients search data. For confidentiality reasons I can’t tell you what they sell. I can tell you that Google banned their Adwords account last year, because of their draconian policies about advertising natural remedies (because Big Pharma controls Google as well as the rest of the media) and I can tell you their CPC (cost per click) before they got banned (after spending £88,000) was about £1.

So, we got to work on their SEO, which included:

– On page optimisation
– sitemap optimisation
– image optimisation
– image syndication
– off page optimisation

I can tell you that we’re 6 months into the work and have yet to complete any of the above and we’re only just about to start on their Video SEO and syndication.

Despite that, this is what has happened to the natural organic traffic:

Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 11.55.44

This shows an increase from an average 5,000 unique visitors in Sept – Jan, to over 20,000 in Feburary 2016.

That’s a 400% increase in traffic.

To put the value of this in terms a monkey could understand, that’s £252,000 worth of traffic (if they’d bought it from Google) over the next 12 months, without taking any further increases into account.

I can tell you clearly that what they are paying us is to achieve this is less than 30% of that.

MOZ only goes back so far, so I thought I’d take a look inside Google Analytics to compare this February with last February, which is before we started working with them:


Is SEO dead?

As my mother-in-law is wont to say:

Is it Buxton.

Free SEO Book – “Where the Big Dogs Roam” by Dori Friend

By Mark Attwood | Marketing

The high priestess of SEO, Dori Friend, has released a new book called “Where the Big Dogs Roam: 8 Magical Ways to Quit Your Day Job by Mastering the Search Engines” which you can get from: Click to get the Free SEO Book.

I have been following Dori’s work for over 5 years – she really is a master of SEO. She tells it like it is, through relentless testing, which is often the complete opposite of what you may hear through more mainstream channels.

All those people that have been saying SEO is dead are totally wrong – search engines still represent amazing income opportunities for those that want to take them. Dori is a proper geek who was an expensive hired gun at Apple working on products from the MAC operating system to being on the team that created the first digital interface for cameras, (parts of which can still be seen on all phone cameras today), before she started reverse engineering the Google algorithm and teaching others how to do the same, many of who have made millions from following her advice.

“Dori knows her stuff and is THE secret SEO weapon for many Internet insiders. It’s about time she’s putting something out there in the marketplace that really works. She stands behind everything she does and really takes care of her ‘tribe’.”
– Yanik Silver, founder Maverick1000

Bottom line is, I have made MULTIPLE MILLIONS of dollars using Dori’s systems and promoting her educational material and software to my customers. Dori pulls in the best of the best for her workshops.”
– Brad Callen, Bryxen Software, Inc.

She is one of the few people I totally trust when it comes to SEO, so I wholeheartedly recommend you take a look at her free book here.

5 Things You Need to Know About Google Adwords

By Mark Attwood | Marketing

5 Things You Need to Know About Google

Running a profitable Google Adwords campaign can be like holding a tiger by the tail. Doing it the way Google teaches you to do it, or even worse, letting them do it for you is financial suicide! Google trains its staff (who’ve never spent their own money on Adwords) and it’s Accredited Partners in a way that makes Google more money, not you.

Here's that email I got

Here’s that email I got

There are a tonne of things you need to know about how to run Adwords profitably

1. Always start with exact match and group together small related keywords per Ad Group

2. Always use conversion tracking and make sure it’s on the right thank you page

3. Only move on the phrase, broad and modified broad match when you’ve got some converting keywords – this is where you will find your new GOLD keywords and this is what will inform all your future SEO to minimise your acquisition costs and maximise your profits.

4. Always use Accelerated traffic in the settings

Even though Google doesn't recommend it, use it. In face, use it because they don't like it.

Even though Google doesn’t recommend it, use it. In face, use it because they don’t like it.

5. Always bid super high at the beginning, then reduce over time to stay in top 1/2 positions. Remember, Google rewards relevancy and part of the way relevancy is measured is by your CTR – the higher it is at the beginning of a campaign, the lower your CPC will be.
