BIG NEWS in the Social Media World: Facebook overtakes Myspace
In May 2009, Facebook replaced Myspace as the most popular US social networking site. ComScore
reports that Facebook has 70,278,000 unique visitors over a year period. Myspace on the other hand shrank 5%
over the same year to 70,255,000 unique visitors.
Facebook is becoming THE social networking site of choice for many people. Seeing Myspace becoming less
relevant shows that change can happen really fast - Marketers need to understand the changing social
media landscape.
Here are the TOP 20 Social Media Sites that we are going to review in this PDF. Some of them are
household names and some of them are SURPRISES! That’s why we need to keep our EYES OPEN 

Now that you have seen the Top 20 Social Networking sites – you need to
have a strategy AND the confidence to DOMINATE them. This is the
reason why we created our “Howie’s Apprentice” series!
You have to take action NOW – as I am DOUBLING the price of
“Howie’s Apprentice Voyeur 2” and then taking it OFF THE MARKET
"Howie's Apprentice CHANGES LIVES!"
"Wash Rinse Repeat!"
Once you get the hang of it, once you see how easy this is, you'll wonder, "How
come you never did this before?"
Because you never had the guidance.
Because you never had a step by step system.
Because many times with the hoards of information out there, you would second
guess yourself and do nothing, because you're afraid of doing the wrong thing.
Now you'll have the CONFIDENCE to do it over and over again!
Seriously, this is the best money I have spent in a long time.
Donovan, Dom, Don, Dustin, Howie the system you have developed
for training is second to none. The access time and training each
week is enough to send you into the fetal position with all the info
you will get, but press through and the reward is beyond words.
This program has given me hope and direction and you can't say
that for a 37 dollar e-book. I would recommend any of Howies
24

products if you have any interest in building a true marketing
business. After allyou never just buy one product because Howie
ALWAYS over delivers with bonuses and content.
Thanks to the Apprentice I've gone from selling crap on E-bay to
ranking multiple times in a well chosen niche, now I feel I can find
my own niches with your research techniques and rank easily with
your traffic systems all taught in one very hands on training
program. Awesome!

You have to take action NOW – as I am DOUBLING the price of
“Howie’s Apprentice Voyeur 2” and then taking it OFF THE MARKET
I do NOT give out testimonials very often, but I have to say this,
when I chanced upon Howie's videos I was blown away. I don't
think I've filled up a notebook so fast. I literally went through every
minute stopping and starting the videos and writing down the
absolute gold-dust that you'll discover in this course, I didn't want
to miss a thing.
Here's this deranged guy showing you exactly how to annihilate
your competition from out of the blue. He doesn't just spout
rehashed garbage, Howie's continually testing this stuff in his
underground gimp-lab in the real world (outside the 'work-at-home'
crowd), and both you and I can now benefit.
He really is the mad scientist of SEO. And this stuff delivers bigtime! If you want the edge, and you have the fire in your belly to
win, don't even think of passing this offer up, because otherwise you
might wake up tomorrow and find your competition has taken you
out.

You have to take action NOW – as I am DOUBLING the price of
“Howie’s Apprentice Voyeur 2” and then taking it OFF THE MARKET
I started off online selling on ebay and struggled to just try and
break even every month, eventually I decided to take a step back
and figure out what I was doing wrong so that I could move my
business forward.
One of the biggest problems I had was getting traffic to my offers, so
I began to search, practice and learn to find out what I needed to do
to control my own traffic. Eventually I came across one of Howie's
videos and in less than 45 minutes watching it I learned some
powerful tips to begin controlling my traffic. I also learned in the
same video that I needed to create better calls to action to increase
my conversions and got some tips to do that too. I started applying
what I learned right away.
As you can probably tell, I'm very motivated to build a sustainable
business to give my family freedom and control over our own lives. I
just didn't know what to do. I decided that to really be successful
quickly, I need coaching and mentoring from people who are
already successful, and that's why when I heard about it I signed up
right away for Howie's Apprentice 2, I also got into Howie's
Ultimate program as soon as it was offered and that has been even
more amazing.
The help and knowledge I've received from both Howie and the
Project Managers over the last few months have been incredible.
Within 2 weeks of starting the Apprentice I had one of my
Christmas-toy Web-2 properties ranking #11 on Google for
"bakugan starter packs" broad-matched.
26

I made over $200 in January 2009 in my own personal niche by
applying what I've learned in the Apprentice. It doesn't sound like
much, but it sure beats the ~$0.00 I made struggling online in the
18 months before the Apprentice and the worse than zero I made on
ebay before that.
Howie's Apprentice is amazing, one of the best things is having
access to the project managers to get help exactly where I need it as
I learn. My project manager, Donovan, has always been there when
whenever I needed advice or pointers on what to do next. Its great
to have someone who's "been there, done that" and can say "try this
instead."
Howie and the project managers always over-deliver whether 1-on1, or in the webinars and Q&A teleseminars. With all the
unannounced bonuses that Howie has offered since the Apprentice
started, the value for the tuition has been better-than-free.
To Howie and our Project Managers: thank you so much to for your
time and patience I've learned so much and seen my first real online
success.
I've gained the confidence that I will be successful because of what
I've learned. It's simply a matter of time and persistence applying
what I now know and adapting as my business grows.
Howie's Apprentice is Awesome! If you can get in to Apprentice 3,
you absolutely need to.

Hi Howie, I'm not one to do testimonials so that's why this is just an
email. Not really a testemonial but I did want to let you and Howie
and all the rest of the guys know that I have thoroughly enjoyed this
course and have learned so much it's incredible in such a short
amount of tme. Using the techniques you have all been teaching us
over the past few weeks, I have managed to get my affiliate blog site
well ranked in Google. The site is a woodworking project and basic
home repair affiliate site. Each post is a different topic using
different tools that are promoted by links to vendors. Thus, each
post has it's own tags and keywords and very seldom are the
keywords the same for any two posts. That being said, using the
techniques from the apprentice program, I have gotten 147 pages
indexed in Google. Of those pages I am on page one for 38 of those
keywords and on page two for 47 more.
Before I started this course and learned about pinging, directory
submission, articles, etc. I had two keywords on page one and that
was it. Vast improvement!
That's it. Just wanted to say thanks to all of you for a great job.

doing what Howie taught me - my sites have rankings on the FIRST
PAGE Of GOOGLE for my primary keywords! One of my sites (I
built shortly after Howie's seminar) competing with 103 MILLION
PAGES for the main keyword phrase - and now I'M ON THE 1st
PAGE! How did I do this? I did it by simply DOING what HOWIE
taught us to do.
Thanks for your generosity Howie - you are a great mentor and your
internet-training has seriously changed my life for the better in
many ways! :-)
