These are just some of the testimonials Rick received for his first marketing product, The Ezine Marketing Machine, in 2000. Back then smaller screen resolutions made for skinnier webpages and we’ll fix this page up soon but you’ll get the idea:-)
I just had to write and tell
you that the purchase I made on Monday
Dec, 18 th of your Ezine Marketing
Machine was the best money I have
ever spent. I read your book cover to
cover twice. Your book inspired me to
start pounding these keys. I have
never written anything. To make a long
story short I typed an article and
sent it to you and you approved. This
is Tuesday Dec 19 and my article has
been sent to many ezines and I am
getting rave reviews. I don’t know how
to thank you for all your help.
God bless you.
Hi Rick,I’ve finally put
EzineMoney into practice. My very first
article has been picked up by MLM
Insider magazine and my hit counter and
sales are starting to ‘motor’. I
couldn’t have done it without you –
There’s a new girl in town!!! I
purchased The Ezine Marketing Machine
yesterday, downloaded it, read the book,
and started sobbing. I was sobbing
because I realized my instincts were
dead right about this Internet thing.
Although I’m very new to the Net, I
quickly realized that the way to go
about promoting online was different
from any other media I’d ever dealt
with. And I intuitively knew that
writing articles and weaving the
benefits of the products into the
articles would be a far more effective
method than slamming customers with the
product itself. I just didn’t know how
to go about it. And I needed to know how
fast! And then I found your book. You
showed me exactly HOW to go about doing
it. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
A few weeks ago, I purchased your Ezine
Money Machine course and I thoroughly
enjoyed it! I decided to write my
“first” article this past weekend. I
created a list of ezine publishers
(geez, I think you got a copy 🙂 ) a few
weeks ago and submitted the article to
over 300 editors last night. WOW…my
first article was featured in WebProNews
which goes to 500,000!!! These guys even
posted the entire article on the FRONT
page of their website. They loved it! I
am just blown away. I got so many emails
from other publishers who plan to run
the article in their next issue…total
of about 15 so far…and counting. I am
still getting so much email from people
who liked it. The best part is that I am
starting to get orders as a result of
the article and only one ezine (within
12 hours of submission) actually
published my article so far! I
could not have done it without you!!
Thanks for opening the doors to a whole
new world for me.
Your course should really be
priced in the hundreds of dollars!!
The Entrepreneur’s Toolbox
You have definitely been an inspiration to
me. Just got in two more ezines this
morning. This last article has gotten
over 1 million impressions and still
going strong. Your Ezine Marketing Machine
E-book has been one of the best
investments I have ever made on the
net! I can’t believe that you are
selling it for so little. It is
helping me thrive not just survive on
much I’ve enjoyed both using and
selling the Ezine Marketing
Machine. Although it took me
nearly 3 months to put into practice
what you teach, I have been
getting some phenomenal results.
article and submitted it to a popular
ezine.. Within 1 hour it was accepted
and further more it was placed at the
very beginning of today’s issue.
WOW!!! I couldn’t believe
it. I was also asked not to submit
it to anyone else for 72 hrs. I
agreed. That in itself indicated
to me that I had taken your principles
and applied them the right way.

Machine is an all-in-one-sitting recipe

Thanks for saving me the
frustration and incalculable hours of
marketing trial and error, not to
mention the dollars the trial and error
could’ve cost me. EMM is instructive,
informational and a splendid thought
I commend you for giving back
so generously that which was given to
you – the knowledge of Internet
marketing and the ability to promote
your ideas for the benefit of others.
I ordered your e-zine
marketing machine about a week ago.
Man, what an inspiration!
I immediately began tapping into my
old, forgotten love of creative
writing and before I knew it…I’d
written three articles! I held
my breath and emailed my first one one
off to a large e-zine.The next day I
got an email back…my
article will be published!
Thanks for your ideas. I believe
they will be the seed of my dream…to
have a successful and very
profitable web business! With

I bought your book and it is
Hey Rick! I’ve been published! I have
included the particulars below. I just
wanted to take a minute to express my
gratitude for your help and your fine
publication. It has not yet been two
weeks since I ordered the Ezine Marketing
Machine and I have already
had my first article published once
and have commitments from two other
Ezines to publish in the near future!
By following the program exactly as described in your
publication I have achieved
the promised success. Thank you!
Sure owe you a debt of
gratitude! Your material is my
“business bible” that started me down
the road, now there is a glimmer of
light at the end of the tunnel!
After I sent Holly a note
saying “congratulations” for her
appearance in Internet Day:
That’s very nice of you! And who got me started I
wonder? I have had some success, today
being my latest. The same article was
published in WebPro News last month
and in some smaller e-zines too. You
are definitely right – this is by far
the most cost effective and productive
way of getting attention! Thanks so
much for all your support and
encouragement. You are indeed
one of a kind.
I am now featured in 2 newsletters on weekly columns and also
at WorldProfit and World Wide

writer on each. Two “printed

them with specific topics for PRINTED
I am also writing a Feature column
about “Women Working From

which has now been seen by Gary
Foreman and he has also requested that
I send him my articles too!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for all you offer
through EZine Money! I
always had exposure through my WEON
site gaining popularity — but now I’m
gaining visibility for my NAME as
well, all thanks to your product.
Especially wanted to thank
you for having such a profound impact
on my internet career. After two yrs.
of disappointing and frustrating
experiences with the Wild Web, I
nearly gave up. There is power in
prayer. I was then introduced to
EzineMoney, and the integrity, honesty
and sincerity that had been lacking,
reappeared. Having read and researched
the book, I now have something to look
forward to in 2000.
Thank you and God Bless,
Rick, I just want to tell you that your
articles have been great
sources of inspiration. Every time
we feel like giving up on our
infopreneurial activities, we’d read
your articles. Your articles
never fail to motivate. My partner
and I could defintely relate
to all your experiences. Your
honesty fuels our drive to continue
on despite overwhelming feelings of
giving up. Thank you very
much for not just providing us with
helpful Internet Marketing
resources, but also sharing us your
soul. Whether we succeed
or not at least we were given the push
to at least “do” what we’ve
always dreamed of doing. Thank
I want to personally thank
you for the EzineMoney product. It
has greatly inspired me and I believe that
it is one of the best products
out on the market for marketers and
entrepreneurs. Your product offers
excellent advertising ventures for
business-minded marketers who have a
desire to market over the internet.
EzineMoney answers questions that
remain distilled in the minds of
marketers and offers another avenue in
which the one main
question can finally be answered, “Why
not?” You offer valuable
resources that fit the needs of every
Some Web sites have it and some
don’t, I am not even sure what it’s
called, but I visit some sites and I
sense that the operator or organization
running the business are driven by real
“Passion and Purpose”. The presentation
of the site tells me they know their
stuff, and are obviously driven to
success by the “Passion and Purpose”
they have for their business. Rick
Beneteau’s Web site has it and I had
every confidence when I bought his book
The Ezine Marketing Machine I wasn’t
going to be let down by the
content, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Rick, your Ezine Marketing Machine is one of the best
investments I have made. It gave me
the courage and knowledge to venture
out on my own. Presently I am in the
initial stages of creating an E-book.
I appreciate your almost instant
availability by phone or email. As you
know, I am a stickler for
responsiveness by vendors and it was
the subject of one of my first
articles after reading your book.
Rick, you ooze credibility and
honesty! Keep up the good
work! You are the cream that rises to
the top of the hype, lies, scammers,
etc. Honesty in internet marketing is
becoming a prized commodity.Thanks!
I wrote another article and so far 4
different newsletters are going to
publish it for me. I only sent the
article to 5 publishers! I can’t tell
you enough how much your ebook (and you)
have been an inspiration to me.
Editor of Top Biz News
I’ve just finished reading your Ezine Marketing Machine.
It’s just what I was looking for. I’ve written
several books and so know that it’s
taken a lot of hard, creative work to
get this far – lots of rewrites! But it’s worth it. Good job,
I was one of the first to get
Rick’s system when he went public. I
read his material in one sitting. It
was clear, concise, and very
entertaining. Following Rick’s
formula, I submitted my article
(“Don’t Try to Be My Sugar Daddy”) to
a few hundred ezine publishers. The
results were incredible. The article
was immediately published in over 24
different ezines–including one with
over 150,000 subscribers. Traffic at
my site more than doubled. 400 new
subscribers joined my ezine list. If
all that’s not enough, I made nearly
$1000.00 additional income that I can
directly attribute to this system.
I just purchased your E-Zine
Marketing Machine a couple of hours
ago. I can’t thank you enough for the
inspiration and helpful tips I
received. I’ve aleady finished reading
the book, and am all set to write a
new article. I’ve written many
articles, but what with one thing and
another, I haven’t written one in a
long time. Thanks to you, you will be
seeing many of my articles on the web,
Good stuff! I love how when you think
you’ve got it all down pat, there are
those little gems that pop up. That
happened on several occasions as I
read your advice. I’ll be quickly
taking your valuable suggestions to
heart and updating my newsletter to
reflect those ideas.

After purchasing and using Rick Beneteau’s Ezine Marketing
Machine, I just had to tell someone
that I had an article published in
Kathy Williams “Busy Mom’s Free Weekly
Ezine”. She has 3,011 subscribers.
Betty Ann Wilkins is publishing it in
her At Home Working News Letter next
week. Also, some Online Magazines have
expressed interest in my work as well.

It was great!
YOUR PRODUCT WAS A HIT WITH
ME!!! You have a powerful concept that
can lead to enormous exposure to many
areas on the Internet. I am very happy
with EMM and intend to read it over many
times. Rick, you have done a superb job
on all counts.
Length – It was not 400 pages that
ramble on and take two weeks to read.
Content – It covered all the bases –
What to write about, format, who to send
it to. Witty – It was very entertaining
and not at all dry reading. Price – Well
worth the money.
I have barely scratched the
surface, and I KNOW it’s what I’ve been
looking for. VGS [Very Good Stuff]!
The Ezine Marketing Machine is
truly an amazing book. The concept of
reaching thousands of targeted consumers
is mind boggling. Rick Beneteau is the

The Ezine Marketing Machine has given me
incentive, and more confidence to write
articles, and get more FREE exposure.
Plus the resources to get published that
Rick provides are excellent!
I just bought your e-book,

Before reading Rick’s book,
ezine advertising through writing
articles was not something I really
took seriously. Since then my
marketing success and traffic to my
website have substantially increased.
It was this book which inspired me to
consider an area I never felt I could
do anything with.
Just wanted to drop you a
note — Kevin Needham of the AIM ezine
accepted my article on charitable
giving for publication. I’ve
published writing in a number of
different venues, but it’s always a
thrill to get that acceptance
letter/email. Just wanted to
share, and thank you again for the
great advice in the ebook.

encouragement and feedback. I’ve
considered you a mentor for a while
now. Your writing is a great

I’m so impressed with this

is clear, simple, economical, but it
