    Hello Dave,
    Selling the shovels to gold diggers? And this is one place which isn’t crowded as well.
    As Charlie rightly cited Pat Flyn’s example, he makes a lot of cash for just promoting his Bluehost affiliate and that in real sense is selling those ‘shovels’. Those tools needed to dig the gold.

    Hi Dave,
    That was awesome and revealing! Yes, many of us are into the “gold rush” mentality and forgetting that we can actually sell tools to mine the goals. I have never thought of this way of making money – especially on the idea that one can actually create and sell a tool that he is not really familiar with!

    Well, I guess its time to step back and consider the tool, information, or service that can be sold to other bloggers even when I am not really an authority!

    By the way, the examples of individuals who are “selling shovels in the gold rush” like Spencer Haws, Jon Haver, Tung Tran and Empire Flipper, make the entire post perfectly explainable!

    A lot of online sellers simply make exaggerated and false claims about their products and services and advertise and promote them excessively.
    Likewise, I would say that one should not purchase any guides or tools or any such things from persons who are not well versed in that.

    So many claims do not really give the clear picture of what it really is, I make this, I make that all just stops at mere claims…

    Well, this indeed is revealing showing another way one can make money even when he/she does not really have an upper hand…

    Whatever the case you did explain in a simple light and should be understood with ease…
