On the 5th of March I started down the road to build “The Bloggers Market Guide To Internet Marketing Bloggers”. One of the first to be considered for inclusion in this guide was Mike Filsaime. Mike is one of the most respected names in Internet Marketing today and I was looking for the information necessary for my guide. Mike is more Internet Marketer in its truest sense rather than a Blogger, but I figured him to be a great addition to my guide.
When I arrived at his site, I was able to pick-up the necessary links and go. As I backed out of the site and returned to Google where I had begun my search, the second listing for my search results for “Mike Filsaime” caught my eye: “Mike Filsaime Sucks.com”
I hate these goobers who tread on a Marketers name just so that they can wrangle traffic to a landing page where they provide you with a hard sell. You know the ones that say that Mike’s bad, buy this instead. You’re than provided with an affiliate link to some total piece of trash that’s hard to believe that a 10-year-old would be interested in. Oh, you can understand and even tolerate the occasional slow coach who uses this tactic, but I’m seeing it used with greater frequency. As an Internet Marketer this has me concerned. I’m not at all thrilled in being hit like this.
As I clicked on the link, ( Yeah, I’ll have to admit, I like most, are a sucker for this type of link ) I was totally taken back to find Mike Filsaime himself on the homepage. Oh man ……. now I downright hooked. The site is a WordPress site with the standard “Twenty Penny” Theme. This was such a striking contrast to what I have come to expect from Mike that you couldn’t have dragged me away with wild horses. Mike wanted my attention and he had it!
The focus of the site is a short video that Mike has put together on how to Trademark your name or brand so that you may protect yourself from such egregious ( not to mention rude ) acts as those mentioned above. I highly recommend that you study this video. This is one of the most important subjects taught by one of the best in the business.
I’d like to think that as an Internet Marketer I can provide my readers with the best in materials and resources as they begin their own journey as a marketer. However, if I have to yield to a better more experienced person, I can think of no one better qualified than Mike Filsaime. Click on the links provide in this post, spend some time; read and experience what a true Internet Professional is all about. If you do than I can assure you that by doing so, you will be glad you did; you will thank me. That’s what I mean about providing you quality here at Bloggers Market ……… I have Mike Filsaime to thank for that!
