We just finished a 4-week Profitable Newsletter training at OSI – over 12 hours of step-by-step success training.  WOW…it was amazing watching the results of those who took the class.  Check out just a few of the comments from the people who participated:


“Thank you for two of the best training classes I have ever participated in – Profitable Newsletter training and Profitable eBay Stores training.  I thought I knew a lot about newsletters until I took your class – I could not have been more wrong.  I had never considered the importance of the subject line much less how important the first few words are.  Since I don’t use an iPhone or Blackberry it had never occurred to me that many people might be receiving my newsletter on one of those devices.  That was the first AHA for me.  I always thought the main purpose of a newsletter was to sell something.  Boy was I surprised to learn that most of those newsletters never get read.  I’ll keep this short – if anyone really wants to use effective newsletters to expand their business and increase customer loyalty – then you must take Janelle’s course.”

“It’s yet another indispensable set of tools from Janelle Elms!  I was so glad I participated in this newsletter training.  My businesses have been sending eBay newsletters for awhile and have been steadily building up the newsletter lists.  But, I was unsure how to start making those customers “my own”, as the businesses shift toward stand-alone ecommerce websites.  Janelle provides lots of specific information about creating newsletter sign-up “Squeeze Pages”, about email management companies, and about sending emails legally and in compliance. The course work about writing email subject lines, so that emails actually get opened, is super valuable.  This is just the information I needed to move the businesses forward toward bigger profits.  I look forward to reviewing the material repeatedly so that all of this rich content gets applied to help grow both Twirl Planet and Bombay Bongo!”

Thank you all so much for writing and asking about the new site I hinted at last week.  It just launched last Sunday (February 8th) and has already been an immediate success – in fact I am in awe of how much attention it has already received in its first week of being open.  More importantly, SO many lives are already being affected by this process – it’s so incredible!!

The site is called In Line Behind Me and was an idea I had in my ‘book of ideas’ for over 2 years now.  The act itself isn’t new in the slightest –many people have been doing this for year’s…but I wanted a way to share ALL of the stories with the world.  You can watch the story on a short video at http://inlinebehindme.com/how-ilbm-started/ (make sure you watch the 2nd video on that page – it’s amazing – I have a great team working with me on this one).

I was going to start working on putting the site up possibly sometime in a year or so – LOL.  I won’t ruin the story for you by telling you the details – you can read about it here:  http://team.inlinebehindme.com/ready-in-3-weeks/  But suffice it to say that God’s timeline is always different then your own timeline.


Yes this site went up in 3 weeks.  Shew!! But there is no way I could have done it without the most amazing team whom you can read about here: http://team.inlinebehindme.com/about/

Also, a very special credit needs to go out to Rock Star Dany – without her help the launch wouldn’t have been possible.  Besides many features of the ILBM main site, she is also responsible for brilliantly added our Team ILBM blog to the site to.  You can see it here: http://team.inlinebehindme.com/


If any of you would like ILBM cards, we have up a set that you can download/print from the comfort of your own computer.  http://inlinebehindme.com/order-your-ilbm-cards/

Also, we would really like to encourage ALL of you to share this powerful site with your friends on your Blog, About Me page, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Squidoo etc.  We have special banners you can use at http://inlinebehindme.com/share-ilbm/


We are already receiving a lot of attention about the site.  Our first newspaper (front page) article was in the Tacoma News Tribune this week.  KOMO was talking about us, KMPS shared ILBM stories all morning and then had me on for an interview the next day (you know I am passionate about something when I am willing to get up at 7am to do an interview – lol).  You can hear the interview at: http://www.kmps.com/pages/334073.php (it’s 3 or 4 down on the left-side of the page…we are still working on getting it up on the ILBM site).


If you have any ideas about how we can get the word out, things to include on the site, people we should talk to or anything else, we would truly appreciate having you be a part of this incredible campaign.  Please send this information to press@InLineBehindMe.com
