I read the 2 free chapters of Silent Sales Machine and felt like you do when you go to church and the preacher is “reading your mail”. I felt convicted by your words, and realized that maybe I haven’t been the cause of my failures after all. Refreshing. All of that to say, I learned of you in the WF, raving that you are the most reputable, trustworthy, and real internet marketer out there. I’ve researched you over the last few days, read your blogs, listened to audio and video, and looked at your programs, and from everything I’ve seen those rave reviews were 100% correct.
Hey, Jim. The reason I am here is that I should acknowledge you’re one of those whose advice do really help me out concerning developing commercial web projects. I live in Ukraine and work as a Web project director. I know my English is not that good, but the only words I need right now is Thank you for the work you do.
I have read 4 books of yours, and I didn’t regret a single minute while reading them although time is money
Ok, I feel like I’m ready to whoop a bit! We started on FBA last November. Hubby came home from his day job in Feb. We were prepared with 6 months worth of money and a lot of supplies/food/etc. In two days, we will celebrate 6 months of him being home with the family. We have had our best month ever every month since February. We still have more than a month’s worth of money in the accounts. We have poured everything back into the business for the past 6 months. We still have a lot of food in the pantry. We still have other supplies (I DID have to buy Toilet paper last week! LOL) We are about to start Q4. We are about halfway to what we need to meet our needs for our family of 7. At the current rate of growth, we will reach that amount in October. I’ve never doubted the Lord brought us to this business, and that He would use it to meet our needs. Now, though, I feel I can share a bit with you ‘insiders’ just how close we are to making a go of it! Love the support we get here, and looking forward to the future. Thanks for letting me whoop a bit! Resume your current activities.
Jim, I just want to say that EVERYTHING that I’ve purchased from you WORKS. Your listbuildingclass.com course, the Silent Sales Machine book ,the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course and the ‘My Silent Team’ site is beyond packed with valuable information, worth way more than the cost! I thank God for your wisdom & knowledge! You are awesome!
God Bless you Jim!
I find it difficult to read it all because nearly every paragraph rings with such truth and information that I am stunned, amused, exhilarated, and distracted. You’ve written a book that had a beginning, but, wonderfully, has no end.
It’s genuine, it’s informative, it laid out my past failures and highlighted the people who lured me into alluring trap after honeyed snare. I really thought I was reading my biography of ineptitude.
Jim, there are only two words properly expressive of what I have learned, am learning and will continue to learn from you and yours:
I am Rudy W. and I became a coaching student in Jim Cockrums programs in 2013. Since then I am now making 6k a month with one of the Ebay business models the coaching staff recommended. I was very skeptical since I failed at many different ventures before coming to this coaching program. But I am now 5 figures with my soon to be gone teaching job. As a kid from Compton, California, I never thought I could achieve at these levels of success, but I am… I am tearing up as I write this review. Because I failed so much and spent almost 15,000 in courses but I never quit.. When i found Jim’s coaching and website it changed my family’s life overnight.
If you are reading this testimonial, then its time to stop with the shiny object syndrome and just stick to Jim Cockrum’s coaching and all his products.
However, the products and biz models are not what separate Jim’s coaching program from everyone else. But its the people he hires that separates his coaching program. There are many people who offer coaching, biz models and products. But its the people Jim hires ."leaders create leaders".
Nathan and Terry are the best… Nathan helped me get over my fear of failing. I was so scared on my first phone call with him, Nathans voice and confidence calmed me alone. Nathan assured me I could do 6k a month in my niche if I worked…And I did… Terry just has a presence about him that just exudes success and makes you feel like no matter where you start you will experience a certain level of success with the coaching program… The coaching program can make no guarantees… But if you work the coaching program will work.
Jim’s coaches have their own online businesses which makes them that much more amazing because they make you feel as if your the only one they are dealing with… And they never make me feel as if I am bothering them..And I know I do… Lol…
I am now working on my second offline business and I have no doubt I will be successful… especially since I have MySilentTeam.com…But nothing works unless you do and keep and open mind… If you listen and do these things and work success will happen for you..Jim and his team offer no quick fixes..But tried and tested methods that have worked for the last 9 years..
Big ups!!!!! to Nathan, Jim Cockrum, Terry, Robin and Lexy…I never wait very long for them to get back to me..They wont leave you lost in any process. Each one of those people all have top notch spirit and energy newbies need to to be successful.
Through your coaching programs we have changed our life and our family. We have been able to increase our giving (time and talent) to our church and to others. We have also been able to offer work for over 5 people. Within 3 months of purchasing one of your courses I quit my job to be available for my son (who has health issues) and to build our business. We hope to have my husband quite his job in the next 6-8 months as well.
You and your organization has changed our lives. We have a financial security we have never had before. I would be honored to help you to highlight what hard work and your programs can do. We are on course to do over 1/2 million in gross sales this year, pretty impressive considering less than 3 years ago we started with $100 from our emergency fund.
You’re about the only guy online who has actually produced courses that have been making me money online. I thank God for you.
The book "Silent Sales Machine" got me started into my FBA business and have enrolled in your ProvenAmazonCourse.com program. This has help me a lot in my FBA business up until today.Thanks for your book and your PAC!
Of all the routes I’ve taken, mailing lists I’ve been on, and people I’ve followed, I seem to connect most with your approach.
Regardless of whether or not you purchase this book I do recommend you sign up for his free newsletter. This is one of the few newsletters out there that is heavy on tips, techniques and sales successes and short on sales pitches.
I have followed Jim Cockrum for a while, and been a student of his coaching program. I will tell you that his ideas and guidance have literally changed my life at a time that I urgently needed a change due to unfortunate circumstances. He definitely knows his stuff, and is one of the few people I trust when it comes to ideas and guidance for my business. I can tell you his coaching program alone has been life changing and done magic for my business.
I read your newsletter each week and have pretty much dropped the others as I am tired of all of these so called guru’s promising me the world in return for my life savings
Sure, we’ve heard about R. Gardner and K. Evoy all over the place, but what about Jim Cockrum? This has to be one of the most overlooked affiliate-profit boosting eBooks I’ve read. Although the techniques described in this eBook could be used for non-affiliate websites, this is a must-have for all affiliate marketers.
I purchased the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course last weekend and enjoy the total content, This far exceeded my expectations. I have read the entire Silent Sales Machine book, i only wish i had found your advice two years ago, for i would be much farther along then i am after my first two years in the on line business. Wonderful useful information. I need to make up ground, I need to grow monthly income,and turn my past efforts into profits. Glad to start learning new skills. Sadly i have managed to make most of the common mistakes that you outline;
I have made about 60 sales but not yet at break even.I will learn all i can with the resources in your course,when i start to generate more cash,i could use some coaching. By all means i am glad to be on your team.I am motivated to learn, share, and grow. Thank you for being the real deal.
I, personally, know what a kind and helpful person that Jim is. A few years ago, when I was an out-to-lunch newbie, I had downloaded something important (to me) and I could not find it, no matter what I did. I was on Jim’s mailing list and so I sent him an email wailing for help, never expecting an answer. When what to my wondering eyes should appear but an email from Jim giving me clues as to how I should find my download. He never left me until I had actually unearthed it. Then I cried…How often does a busy business man take time to help a clueless dummy? Jim Cockrum is an absolute PRINCE. He is kind and helpful and honest. All these attributes are rare nowadays, especially in internet marketing. Thank you, Jim!
My online business is now generating as much as $200,000 each month and this figure is rising almost daily.
Without the help of Jim Cockrum none of this would have happened.
Jim was one of only 3 mentors who I turned to when I was struggling to get my business started, and his help and advice has literally been worth millions of dollars to my business.
Right now my business has 9,238 registered affiliates, but the SECOND person to ever promote one of my products was Jim.
I owe Jim a lot which is why I’m always singing his praises to anyone who will listen!!
Three years ago you recommended an ebook course. I took it and now that little 21 page book makes me 3-4 K a yr. Next was your PEC Course…Sales each yr. are over $100K now. Then ProvenAmazonCourse.com …Christmas last year was awesome and this year will be even better. Next came..LiquidationInvestmentTraining.com. I am now able to source inventory without seeing or touching the product. Just wait for deposits from Amazon…
I just wanted to say thanks for all the PHENOMENAL content in Marketing 101. I am a business coach to SME businesses and i send your book to all of my clients as it’s a brilliant resource that is highly effective, punchy, up to date and packed with loads of golden nuggets!
I have listened to the audiobook 3 times and have the hardback book to reference and scribble on when i need to.
It would be great to keep in touch and to come along to any events you’re running in the future.
A review left on youtube.com from a past reader…
I bought your ebook, and i must tell you that im very glad to spend my money with that product, it is really excellent.
It occurred to me today that I get a lot of email from dozens of online marketers everyday. There’s so many that I don’t even know how I got on their lists. I suppose I opted in to some promotion here and there.
There’s one email I get periodically that always stands out from the rest. One reason they stand out is because I don’t receive them everyday from this person. Some marketers send me email everyday. I delete 99% of them. The only reason I allow them to keep coming to my inbox is to see which subject lines catch my attention.
The one guy who’s email I open without fail is Jim Cockrum. I’ve been getting emails from Jim for about six years now. I’ve opened every single one without an ounce of disappointment. I always get some kind of advice or marketing tip for free that helps me in some way or another.
I’ve always liked ‘FREE’ and so it took me several years before buying one of Jim’s products. When I finally bought a product, I paid several thousand dollars to become a coaching student of Jim’s.
It’s been worth every penny and that one investment will pay off for the rest of my life. I didn’t just buy coaching from Jim, but I put myself into alignment with some amazing possibilities to do some great things with someone who is in alignment with a calling greater than himself.
I read a Facebook post today that Jim’s wife posted on his wall. She praised him for the path he is on and for the passion he has for helping people make a better life for themselves than they knew was possible. Jim shows people possibilities. Possibilities make life radiant.
I bought this without even looking at the free video, because as you have
said, I am one of the people that trust you.
I have read your books, (from 101freemarketing.com) and the most recent silentsalesmachine in pdf that your sites are based off of and love them.
We have made tremendous leaps and bounds by implementing just a few of your ideas.
Just the other day we had our first $1000 day on Amazon using some of the techniques we have recently learned, we were SO excited we could almost explode!
We thank the stars that we have found a group of people like you!
I cant wait to plow through this to see any new tips and tricks I can implement.
My next goal is to actually get a newsletter together.
I am in the planning stages right now.
The Silent Sales Machine is where I picked up all my secrets and enabled me to soar past 3,000 feedback on eBay – that’s the highest in the whole of the U.K.!
I wanted to take a few minutes and send you a success story about the business I’m now running. I started 4.5 years ago after listening to a short recording Jim made. I got things up and running immediately. I originally was looking for something my mom could do, but things took off quickly and it turned into a business for me as well.
Now, almost 4.5 years later, we are set to purchase $600K in product this year and earn over $130K in profit. We’ve also been able to add other types of product to our inventory as part of Jim’s liquidation training. We’ve been increasing our business steadily over the last couple years and plan to continue doing so far into the future.
I’m thankful for the training and opportunities I’ve received through Jim Cockrum’s programs and MySilentTeam.com membership. I’ve learned quite a bit over the years on a variety of different subjects. I’ve been following Jim since January 2005 and plan to continue doing so. In fact, he’s one of the few people I follow these days. Thanks Jim!
I would recommend Jim’s books to anyone…
…by the way, silent sales machine, is far and away the best starting point for someone who is lost and jumping around the internet trying to make money.
I’m making MORE each week than during my working career thanks to your group here. I have a List, per your teaching Rules, of 11 repeat customers that has taken one year and 8 months to build. My monthly income from this list, alone, is in a range from $1600 from a bad sales month to $8000 to the best of months. $4000 is a fair average. From your exact teaching… Many months no one is added to the list and other months one is added to the list. The business I have was started 100% from Your teaching. At first I had NO idea this business even Existed. Thank you Jim, thank you. You have my complete and free permission to publish this unsolicited testimonial on your pages wherever you want.
Just a thank you note.
After 6 years of chasing many ‘hot shot, self proclaimed gurus’, and wasting many $$$, I am so relieved to know of Jim Cockrum and his realistic approach to all of this. I just finished the latest edition of SilentSalesMachine. I must say I have gotten a great lift from reading the book and have resolved to push on to success. To me, the most gripping part of the whole thing was page 125. The list of possible excuses, mirrored my life almost exactly. I CAN DO IT!! (if I live long enough). Thanks.
(an idea from) this $5 book that has made me $20,000+ in the last two years.
Thought I’d send you a quick note. First, your newly revised book is fantastic…there is a lot more “meat and potatoes” info in it. You have really expanded it a lot. I keep reading and re-reading and I love it.
This long time fan of Jim’s book and newsletter says:
I’m convinced the best way to get into the Online game is eBay…I encourage people that are wanting to get into eBay to buy your book!
Hello Jim, I bought your book over a year ago and continue to read and reread parts of it. There is so much info in it! Still enjoy the newsletters also.
I have just listened to your book 101 Free Marketing and I have ordered the printed version for easy reference on a day to day basis. Yesterday, I also downloaded your silent sales machine book and ordered the audio version. I can’t wait to read this book.
I “discovered” you on the net a short while ago and I must say that, after listening to 101 ways, I soon realized what a genuine, non pushy author and entrepreneur you are. It is hard to find honest people like you on the net. You do come across with the right waves lengths which the majority of people can easily pick up and understand.
I bought Silent Sales Machine some months ago and was blown away by its content! I really got my money’s worth! You leave no stone unturned! Even a newbie like me can understand it. Of all the products I have bought on the Internet, this is my most prized and valued possession.
Good Luck in your continued success!
Jim is one of my all time favorite online mentors, a highly trusted source of information about internet marketing of many kinds, been following him for years… would invest in anything by Jim without reservation. I bought his ‘Silent Sales Machine’ many moons ago and also was a member at his site for awhile, then moved and life interrupted, may very well end up a member there again.
I purchased your e-book last Saturday. Read it once over the weekend and I’m re-reading again right now. I would suspect that I’ll read it several times. Just wanted to send a little note to let you know that pound for pound, this is great information! Thanks again for creating such a great product!
I am VERY selective about the books I recommend to my list. Yours was so good that it selected itself!
When I got your book I saw that I could use Ebay to kick start a ______ business. So for the past year I have been selling home-made cd’s and books about ________. I also used your ideas to follow up and create a big mailing list. I am now working on another book. My earnings from Ebay have ranged from $1000 to $2725 a month VERY PART-TIME. There is indeed money to be made by the average person on eBay.
Thanks for all you’ve done.
Jim Cockrum’s ideas are simply brilliant, but not complicated.
Jim, Congratulations on making a true, genuine, and creative contribution to the art of selling online. ALL eBayers should read (The Silent Sales Machine)…
“Purchased the PAC course about 8 months ago. My wife and I read and re-read the material, read the forums, and promptly talked ourselves out of it ever being possible to work. So fast forward to about two weeks ago. Then we realized we hadn’t done anything with the info so whose fault was it if was less now and we hadn’t seen if it works. We decided the heck with it we were going to send in some items and see what happens. We purchased some items on mark down for really cheap, 1 and 2 dollars cheap. Sent them in along with some books and a couple of kids DVDs we bought at a store going out of business down the street. So today, one day after going live we have two orders shipped! Total investment, 3 dollars for the two items, total sales, $46.89! After Amazon fees profit of $32.76! These are just the first two of twenty five items!
So for everyone who keeps questioning themselves and others about whether this works just TAKE ACTION.
So tomorrow we will be hitting more stores looking for deals. So glad we finally decided to do something instead of just reading about it!”
When it comes to small business, I’m the expert, but when it came to marketing my own information products on eBay and on the Web, I was just as lost as the next guy. I was just about ready to hire a high priced consultant ($1,500 an hour) to help me get started when I came across your Silent Sales Machine book. I read the book in one sitting and put your advice into practice the next day. Within a few days I had orders on eBay and traffic funneling to my website (without violating eBay policy). Net result: over $600,000 in revenue for 2004 and 2005 will surpass that. Your book costs a few dollars, but the information has proved to be priceless. Yours is the first resource I recommend to my readers, my subscribers, and everyone else who wants to know how to succeed online.
“I’ve been a member of Jim Cockrum’s newsletter since 2001 and I have increased my profits streams by 300%. Not only that, but I continue to enjoy $2000.00 profit a month on my products already in circulation. I would recommend The Silent Sales Machine book to anyone.”
Thanks for the most informative newsletter ever!
I am progressing nicely with the biz. My gross total in sales for October was at $4700. So, I’m very optimistic about my future sales.
I’m also going to get into selling collectibles on eBay. I’m going to follow the techniques laid out in a few courses regarding this business model.
That’s it for now. So, things are starting to look up.
Thank you again for your help. I hope we can talk again someday. Have a great week.
I bought a lot (a load of product) as a result of your course (using the NLN concept they give us). It went perfect and what a ‘dream come true’. Never having to touch the product and already making sales with a ROI of 100+%. I will recoup my cost of the course with this first deal.
We are extremely thankful to Linda, Jim and Nathan for offering us this opportunity. We are truly blessed and look forward to working with everyone in the class
(It wasn’t easy, but…) Once I connected with the source (that Jim/Linda gave me), it took a grand total of 3 days from first call to FedEx picking up the boxes – AWESOME!
Just wanted to share my happy news on a Friday afternoon! Thanks to both of you for all your help!
I wanted to post my first success story acquiring product from *****. I made my very first call and the ***** told me he was very interested in speaking with me and had product he immediately wanted to sell. We started the negotiating process and I just purchased several thousand dollars worth of new inventory from him. Linda’s guide has been spot on every step of the way. When I needed questions answered, (Jim’s partner for LIT training) Linda provided the extra help I needed to get the deal closed. This ******* now has other lines he wants to sell me and has even said he would start referring me to other ***** he knows. My very first call could quite possibly lead to all the products I will ever need should this materialize as I think it can.
I’ve been truly amazed at how much opportunity we have all been offered to be a part of this program. I can’t thank Linda enough for making her methods available or Jim for making it available to his subscribers.
I know we’ve just scratched the surface of what is possible. My wife and I were looking for something that would change our lives – so that one day I could work from home with my family in OUR business. We’ve found it!
Jeff and Christy H.
It has been 10 years in the making but today I left my J.O.B. and joined the world of the self-employed!
Thanks go out to Jim and Nathan (Jim’s Coaching director) for all of your leadership and support. My husband has been buying and selling on Ebay for 10 years and branched out to Amazon FBA almost a year a
go. He signed up for coaching with Jim and Nathan and learned a lot in a very short amount of time.
We are very excited to now have more time to work on the LIT side of our business. My day job was really getting in the way
2012 has been our best (by far!) year ever and we are anxious to see what we can do in the 4th quarter! With both of us working full time the sky is the limit!
- Britni R.
Trust me, it does work!! My husband and I have worked many hours to get going
and get a system set up but are reaping the rewards “as we speak”. We are even having
fun with it now!
Our listings only started a few days ago and we’ve already sold 15 items so we are very
happy with those results.
The long and short of this story is THE SYSTEM WORKS. (Jim’s partner for LIT training) Linda’s attention to detail
in her book has been priceless not to mention her help behind the scenes which has been
I felt the need to post a huge thank you for the LIT mentorship that we each have access
to as part of this training. Today I ran into a situation with a rather large agency that has
numerous “A” type products and they asked me for a personal referral from an agency
that has worked with my company Vine Associates. They didn’t just want a rep referral
but a full blown agency recommendation. I sent Linda Tyler an email request for how I
could make this happen. She responded within 5 minutes and asked me for more details.
Within a half hour I received a call from (Jim’s partner for LIT training) Linda stating that the agency was now ready to do business with me.
I just wanted to thank Linda, Jim, and Nathan for putting this LIT group together! Your
support on the sidelines has been stellar and more than I bargained for when I was
selected to be involved with this group.
I just closed a deal for an inventory of ******* that have a pretty good sell through rate
and they definitely fit the 115% rule. The book you wrote Linda is all that is needed to
put these deals together. I have read it numerous times and it is worth it’s weight in gold.
Everybody keep at it because this business model is something special!
Chuck & Kathy K.
I could never thank (Jim’s partner for LIT training) Linda enough for all the support and advice she’s been giving me along the way. This is a fantastic business model, but it’s not easy, (nor did I expect it
to be) it takes a lot of individual determination and focus; however the support Linda
provides is golden. With Jim’s inspiration, Nathan dedication and Linda’s Knowledge
and support I think LIT will evolve into something bigger than any of us can imagine.
Just a note to thank you for your newsletter. I find the articles informative and timely. Often, the articles have helped me in the marketing aspect of our business. This is the only newsletter of this type that is of genuine value to me each time I receive it. The products you suggest and the research you do are the best. Keep up the good work and thanks again!
Excellent…no, AMAZING book, Jim–thank you so much! After applying these ideas and principles, I couldn’t believe the impact on my sales! My business peers have no idea how I do it!
(Editor note: See Brian’s incredible success story as one of the dozens featured in Jim’s best seller at 101FreeMarketing.com)
I see a link for removing myself from your newsletter. I WON’T EVEN THINK OF ENTERTAINING THAT IDEA! I look forward to each and every one of them!
“Well one thing is for sure, you really do over deliver…”
…Your ideas and resources are incredible. Having been on ebay for 10 years now and selling over 15,000 items with our main acct we have been able to raise a family and yet we both work at it 10-12 hours a day 6-7 days a week And of course even a couple days off means a total drop in income.
So many books talk about similar concepts as yours but of the literally thousands of dollars and countless hours of time I have spent reading them–none has actually shown us how to do it. Your step by step instructions and resources are making it very easy to set it all up.
We can’t change 5 minutes ago and everything we have done in the past has brought us to this point–but it took your part time plan book to finally make us realize that we need to stop and do it all right now.
We’ve bought all 3 of your books and printed copies of each and every page and you should see
all the stacks and dogeared pages. (Editor note: All 3 of the books he’s referring to have been condensed into the latest version of ‘Silent Sales Machine’.)
Well thank you doesn’t begin to express our appreciation for all your help-its shown us a new way of thinking and a new beginning .
All I want to do right now is say THANK YOU! I am in the process of reading and studying your book “The Silent Sales Machine…”. As I read , I realize one thing, everything I have bought in the past is junk! There are quite a few wannabees trying to copy you but they haven’t even came close to the information you have given me and I haven’t even gone one-quarter into your book. As of today the other guys are trashed. Sorry for my rambling on and on. Thank You for this VALUABLE book.
I’m sure you get 10,000 e-mails like this per day, but I just wanted to
say – THANK YOU!!! Thanks for providing an awesome e-book – The Silent Sales Machine and Thanks for sending useful information in your newsletter. I am very grateful.
…please let me recommend to you the BEST FREE eBay Success newsletter!
…the updated version of Silent Sales Machine is awesome. There’s amazing stuff in there. Not only does it have all the “ready to go” tips and techniques, but it also gets your creative juices going and helps you to think “outside the box”. Great job!
Hi Jim, I ordered your book several days ago. I am really enjoying the information in it. When I ordered it I began to think “just another 9 to 10 page booklet”. But to my surprise, the book is packed full , I mean FULL of information. I will be getting in touch with you after I finish the book!
(editor note – The book is over 150 pages of powerful eBay tips and insider information!)
It means the world to me that you’re willing to help out us “little guys” on our way to Internet success. Just wanted to let you
“Your book The Silent Sales Machine is probably one of the most comprehensive documents on the true power of Ebay as a tool. You should charge $297 for the use of this information…as I have used it to make over $5000.00 in a very short time.”
…I own both the “Silent Sales Machine” and “Auction Traffic Cash” and have found both the books and your free newsletter the most informative of all I’ve seen. (editor note: The concepts from “Auction Traffic Cash are now integrated into the latest version of ‘Silent Sales Machine’. They used to be separate books.)
Thank you for your time,
Your info is absolutely fantastic and has given me tons of new ideas and additional profit centers. I’ve even printed out your books and all your newsletters–well over 1000 pages so far.
(editor note – Everyone from “newbie” to experienced sellers need creative ideas to take them to the next level.)
To tell the truth, I haven’t read an ezine this good in months. Most of my email is flooded with spam and I have just never had time to read any ezines at all. But today I was going through my emails and I came across your ezine and I started reading, It’s G-R-E-A-T!! You have fantastic content and I will make sure to save all your future emails It’s been so long since I signed up to this ezine, I think it was nearly a year ago. Anyway I’d like to say thanks to you for being one of the “good” ezine owners on the net! I will continue to read for as long as you continue to write
P.S. I hardly ever find an ezine of this quality, keep it up!!
“I have read your books (SilentSalesMachine, 101FreeMarketing.com) and am a member of both of your groups (OfflineBiz.com, MySilentTeam.com). You have helped me so far more than I can express.”
…if you’re into Auctions and want a unique slant on increasing your profits, you should know about The Silent Sales Machine. His methods are highly successful. We’ve been recommending his book for some time now, and have heard from many of our Members who have written to thank us for sending them to Jim.

Hi Jim, You may remember us from last year, Jeff and Rachel…
We used (your book) “The Silent Sales Machine” to get started selling paintball equipment online… We will hit about $220K this month on eBay and feel that $500K is our true potential. We should come in close to $6mill in total sales with a little more than half of that being from eBay this year. Funny what a little e-book can do. Now granted, the blood and sweat has been there every step of the way but we owe it to you for our roots. We are ever grateful for what you have shared with us and truly acknowledge that it was “The Silent Sales Machine” book that was the foundation of everything we are today. If you’d like, we are comfortable in sharing our story with readers if you wish. It is the least we can do.
“…thank you for the audio version of your SilentSalesMachine.com ebook. I’ve burned it on CDs and listening to them everyday while commuting since the last three weeks. What a “Brain Ride”!
So many ideas are born from listening to your experience and ideas. I’m actually starting to enjoy commuting because I have time to listen to your audio book.
You’re a great inspiration to me as I’m a father and a husband looking forward to provide them with the life they deserve and be there for them as much as I want to and still be a successful entrepreneur.”
…congrats on your new ebook, Turn Auction Traffic into Cash. I got it and it is excellent. I also got your free update to my old version of “Silent Sales Machine”, and I agree with everyone that you’ve written the best and most authoritative guide to making money with eBay. You are a brilliant guy…
I highly recommend this book…

I enjoy your newsletters very much, and have lost my August ’05 issue of
Creative eBay Selling. I have searched everywhere for it. Would it be possible to get a new copy?

Find the Hidden money in Ebay besides just your auctions!
…thanks to you and your great “Silent Sales Machine” book which inspired me I have been able to build myself up to a top-rated bronze Powerseller on eBay over the past 12 months. I therefore AM BACK because you have made a big difference in my life and that of my family with this recent eBay success in these hard economic times.
I believe and trust in what you do and after having looked around the net for a second income source to supplement and backup my eBay work i am convinced Amazon selling IS the (next) way to go and your course looks like THE BEST out there!
Thanks again for all you do and for all you have done for me and my family.

I wasted so much time reading useless information, but now you can use my method of trial and error to your advantage.

My wife Leslie and I are Building Our Dream Business with the help of Jim Cockrum’s book.
This is how we became powersellers on eBay and you could do the same too …(just) by reading my favorite FREE eBay newsletter! – Platinum powerseller Jaime Cruz
Hello Jim. I want to thank you for all that you have done to help
me grow my eBay business and beyond. You have really gotten me out of the box!
Awesome products!!! Really creative eBooks and helpful for me. Youï¿½re the first honest person that Iï¿½ve found on the internet. Iï¿½m so thankful about this because you literally open my mind to online marketing!
I have learned a great deal from you about how to begin a business on line, interestingly enough I have learned most from the way you treat customers, and prospective customers. It’s all about creating a relationship of trust and rapport. I have always been a huge skeptic, believing that most on line businesses are successful by means of scamming the innocent and uninformed. Kudos to you for your integrity. It’s a diminishing trait of character in our world today. You have proven to me that you can have integrity AND success on line. Many sincere thanks.
First, your Silent Sales Machine book continues to impress. I must have read and reread that thing about four times already . . . yes, it’s THAT good!
YOU ARE A VERY VERY GREAT HELP TO MY EBAY BUSINESS. YOUR BOOK IS FANTASTIC!
Your prompt response to my requests make me feel confident in my purchases.
Once again, thanks.
….there’s so much junk out there, it makes me mad as hell. In fact, I had to investigate your “Silent Sales Machine” all weekend just to make sure I wasn’t buying another elementary education EBay book again. I finally purchased it last night from you and am VERY impressed thus far and I’m only on page 50… I’ve been selling for over a year on EBay and am mad I didn’t apply these ideas before.
Great service, great book. All of the included links (resource page) alone make it well worth the price ! Thank you very much,
You over delivered on this product and it is very well presented.
…Wow – I can not begin to tell you how your wisdom about ebay and ebusiness has helped me big time…Jim thank you for all the wonderful e-mail and info you are one of the best!!!
I have been a loyal subscriber to your newsletter for a while. Soï¿½far it has been the best Newsletter I have subscribe to.
I remember receiving your Silent Sales Machine book twice. I brought your book the 1st time and my wife brought it for me the 2nd time for a surprise!
I never sent you an email to refund my money for the second purchase though because you really pour your heart into your book and you gave me the info to become successful on eBay. Thanks Jim!
I am a seasoned seller and your book actually contained advice and tips that I would have never thought of that will actually help me and my ebay business. Iï¿½ve read some of the other books out there that were just thrown together with no research or hard work. Yours is actually helpful with up-to-date fresh ideas and strategies.
Thank you very much.
Thanks a million, Jim! Look forward to many years of financial success with the implementation of your ideas from “The Silent Sales Machine”. As an eBay Powerseller, I thought I had it pretty well covered, but your ebook opened up a whole new avenue of revenue for me! From newbie, to veteran eBayer, there is something for all to learn here! Very well laid out, easy to understand, I’m impressed! Scot S.
Dear Jim, Thank you SOOOOOO Much for your book and Newsletter. They are like a helping hand in the jungle. Keep it up.
Thanks very much for a GREAT book. I have been selling on Ebay for about 3 years. After reading your book my head is spinning with new ideas. I really can’t put into words my thanks for helping me over the top on my eBay plans. FINALLY a simple plan explained the way most people can understand it. I must admit, part of me knows you should be selling your book for more money. It would be WELL worth it! Thanks AGAIN! Off to read it again and absorb a little more. Happy Fathers day!
(Editor Note: This next testimonial was sent to Jim after doing a radio interview with KTAR AM in Phoenix, Arizona. The note is from the shows producer.)
Thanks again for being on the show today! You were a great, highly informed and articulate guest… It’s a pleasure promoting you and your book.
I purchased your ebook this morning and couldn’t put it down. I must admit I was skeptical about a couple of your claims prior to reading the ebook, but boy did you prove me wrong! I was blown away and inspired by several of the secret techniques you revealed. I can assure you I plan to put them in force before the week is over. Without a doubt your book has taught this old dog new tricks about making money on eBay. Congratulations on having the foresight and wisdom to share these secrets with others. I’m sure it will pay you huge dividends down the road. You’ve made both a friend and a believer out of me. I can’t wait to buy your next book.
…the inspiration and courage to get this started was all derived from “The Silent Sales Machine” and Jim Cockrum. Being a skeptic I mulled it over but finally stepped up to the plate. The best $24 I’ve ever spent. Ebay is the vehicle and Jim’s book is the road.
(Editor Note: The book and resources have been expanded since our price was $24. The price has gone up a little since we received this testimonial.)
Hi Jim, thanks for the book I read it and also read 2 others on e-bay auctions. Yours is so much more to the point than the others! The other 2 took me for a ride around the block if you know what I mean! They made it sound so hard that I wanted to give up before I even started.
I’ve recently become very serious about ebay sales. Your info has been most helpful. God Bless you for doing your newsletter for free. I for one appreciate it.
I had to have my computer upgraded and during the process I lost your ‘Silent Sales Machine’ book. Can I please download it again? I was especially using the resource page A LOT – I use this book like my eBay BIBLE. I AM LOST WITHOUT IT. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(Editor Note: Of course we helped Sandra out!!)
Great book with great ideas!!!! Definitely worth it!! – Mike P.

I must begin by saying I find your literature highly motivating. I’ve read material before claiming to make you serious money but your ebook has to be the most logical and without catches…

Never in the history of the world has it been easier to make money while working from your home PC! Jim, you have created a book that is a must read for all who want to profit online. I thank you for giving me a new and better perspective.
Hi Jim! Just wanted to drop you a quick line and say thanks for your book. I read it a few months back and promptly started my own (silent sales machine). I earn $2.99 every month from 375 subscribers now (just started in April and growing daily)! I am working on a companion website, which is nearly done, and once I’m finished automating all the infrastructure I’ll be able to try out a few new marketing strategies that I’m pretty excited about.
I read your book three weeks ago. I had been dabbling with selling items on Ebay for over a year, but your book inspired me to start selling _______. In just three weeks I have profited $450 (I was on vacation in Florida for two of those weeks). Now that I am home, I have customers waiting…
Hi Jim, I’m just reading the new SSM after my free update arrived – great stuff and so much more…
There was one sentence in the Silent Sales book that said it all for me. After applying this technique, I am making sale after sale. I have purchased ________ from the ______ store for a quarter and have sold some of them for over $20 and $30 each. I made approximately $500 in July my first month, while still learning and experimenting with different auction categories. I have money coming in my Paypal account practically every day.
…thanks a million for the information you have cobbled together – great read!
I just bought 3 ______ buttons for $6 total and listed them in separate auctions and made $83 profit!!
Book contains a WEALTH of information! Good job Jim! Thanks!
This is the best book I have ever bought…Great book (about) how to make great money online!
Hello. I purchased your ebook about 3-4 months ago. It’s loaded with very pertinent information and has helped me immensely. Question: do you have an updated/newer ebook yet? Would like to purchase if/when it’s available. Please advise. Many thanks,
Jim, I am just sending this mail to you to show my appreciation for your quick response to my (eBay) predicament. I thank you very much, you are unique mentor, may God keep on blessing you more and more.

I have to let you know that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from your silent sales machine book, it really opened up my eyes and I am very glad and grateful that you are sharing your knowledge and wisdom about online business.
Do you ever do seminars? I’m only an hour north of Indianapolis and I would love to learn more about how to become an infopreneur! Thanks for the great newsletters.
(Regarding The Silent Sales Machine book) …you have developed a wonderful concept that can be adapted to a multiplicity of products.
GREAT INFO! LOTS OF USEFUL TIPS! Here’s to Success… Thanks again Jim!
The Silent Sales Machine book is an amazing resource for me and has gotten me started to earn more of an income from my auctions. The free newsletter is Awesome!
Excellent Book. Gave me tips I’d never think of to improve my Business
I have been reading the information from your “silent sales machine” book all weekend… I’ve started a new small business selling _________. You have made me see E-Bay in a whole new light! Thank you!
I was thinking of you as I was looking at my bank account and saw the latest ClickBank deposit. Your advice really works. I started up this Silent Sales Machine 3 years ago and it is still producing.
I don’t have any $2,000 dollar a day stories but I consistently bring in $1,500 a month on Ebay.com VERY part-time with just my front-end products and my expenses are just under $100. This is just my front-end! Thanks Jim.
If You can’t profit from reading this book, then you aint really trying!
This is a must have book for any online seller or wanna be seller!
Hi Jim- thanks for a great book, I truly found some great ideas that I can put to work for me… Yours is the first one that I manage to read from cover to cover (usually it’s always ‘been there-seen that’) . Keep up with the great ideas – I’m looking forward to your next one… thanks,
Dear Jim, I’ve just found my receipt for my copy of the Silent Sales Machine book which i bought last year. I’ve been meaning to get in touch with you as I had a bit of a disaster here recently – my house was burgled and among the things taken was my laptop computer with all my work for the last two years on it. I had most of the major things backed up fairly recently but among the things I did lose completely were my all my e-mails, e-books and software downloads. As you can imagine this has cost me a lot of time and inconvenience. Among the things that went was my copy of the SSM book, so I wondered if you would be kind enough to resend me a download link again so that I can start getting back on track. I hope this isn’t too much of a problem for you. Order details follow…
EDITOR NOTE: What a testimony to the value of this book to this guy! His computer was stolen and he tracked us down a year later to get Jim’s eBook back! We get this type of request frequently.
Great ideas – convinced me to start selling online ASAP… Thanks Jim!
I wanted something to do that would allow me more time with my children, show them how to make money just using our mind and a plan, and something that was so easy I could do it any time, all the time, or just a little and still get results. Happy to say, I have gotten some great results! I will be able to cover a lot of bills this month because of my “side line” and my children see how things work when one just keeps persevering after one’s goals. I hope you are happy to know that I have begun to make it happen for me and my children, and I thank you for your realistic approach and verbal encouragement toward making me a successful ebay seller!
WONDERFUL, Useful Info and Great Ideas…
Very informative book…lots of great ideas….easy ways to make $$$$ on E-Bay
I have read about eight pages and I am totally fascinated. I am already convinced it was worth the price. 3 words – Brilliant, Absolutely Brilliant….Three more words -BUY THIS BOOK… Thanks,
I get phone calls three or four times a year from people who saw me on your testimonial page – they look me up in the phone book, and want to know if the book is really worth it. I always tell them yes, of course! My website has around 1100 subscribers now and I have five people working for me now…
I just wanted you to know how much I thoroughly enjoyed your book. Talk about tons of information!!!! The information in your newsletter should prove invaluable.
If you sell online or are interested in online business, this book will make you serious money, or even make you rich!
Great book loaded with great ideas and helpful information – very worthwhile!
I am sure with all the sales this book must have you don’t remember who has or hasn’t bought it. Well I bought it quite some time ago – didn’t know a thing about the internet but decided that I didn’t need this book to make a go of it. So I asked for a return of funds which you promptly made. Well as you can see I’ve turned around and purchased this book again. (No I won’t be asking for a refund this time) Why did I re-buy this book? Well I was purging old files on my computer and I came across SilentSalesMachine. I started to read it again and realized that I had passed over a gold mine. I decided that if I was going to use the book it would be dishonest of me not to pay for using it. Not only am I going to use it I am also an affiliate offering Silent Sales Machine to others. I thought you might get a little chuckle knowing that your book gets “Smarter” as it ages. Well if you have a mind to – wish me luck this time and keep those newsletters coming. The info gets clearer every time I read one.
An appreciative customer and Fan,
extremely valuable book…Read it and follow it…thanks Jim for the inspiration…great thought provoking information…
This is the real thing – I’d buy again from Jim!
At last, info I can put to use. Jim really knows his stuff!
I have spent the last several months reading many ebooks… I really enjoyed yours. It is very informative and you have explained your ideas and concepts (well)… Keep up the great work
Many thanks for your book, I’ve been thinking about nothing else since I first read it.
Once again, many thanks
