“Alan doubled our salon turnover in 4-weeks … EXTREME!”
Well what can I say!!
We had a salon, a team, a business – Or so we thought!!
We were taking on average £2-3000 a week, it covered the bills… just! We spent A LOT of nights worrying about how we were going to pay the staff, if there was money in the bank to pay the product company…. We didn’t take a wage, we didn’t have any spare cash, we thought we were doing everything like we should but we were still not seeing any increase….until we called Alan.
We spent many more nights wondering whether we should take the risk, it was a lot of money that we certainly didn’t have.
We made the jump… and it was honestly THE BEST THING WE HAVE EVER DONE!!!!
Alan ripped our business apart and showed us it in a completely different light….
In 4 weeks he has refocused our attention on stabilising and building a BUSINESS.
He has almost DOUBLED our turnover in 4 weeks…….at the quietest time of the year!!
He has opened our eyes to everything about our business and what we were doing and has flipped it on its head!!
It’s INTENSE, ITS HARD WORK AND ITS EXTREME!! But we are ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT!! The results are UNREAL…..
We are 4 weeks in…..we cant for the results after 12.
Alan is fantastic, he is supportive, encouraging and he knows what he’s talking about! He is ALWAYS at the end of the phone, he keeps us focused and he gets results……it’s just simply amazing!
I can’t wait to write about our journey after the next 4 weeks!
WE CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH…….SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!
Steph and Rich, Sage Hair, Wickham.
Let me introduce you to another salon owner just like you… Steve.
Here’s How Steve Listened to me, Re-Built His Salon Business and Marketing Systems For Huge Increases (and how you can easily copy him!)
I have been in the hairdressing business for 12 years. I have 2 shops one just hairdressing and one that is hair and beauty. The latter I have had for 3 years and the other for nearly 8 years.
The first shop has gone from strength to strength and staff retention has been fantastic however this has caused its own problems with a certain amount of what I call “Comfort Zoning” everyone does well and earns a good wage things are easy and everyone works reasonably hard.
With rising overheads over the last 2 years, things from a profit point of view have suffered. I keep tight budgets 14%-16% of turnover for stock and retail 55% wage bill etc. The wages have been difficult to control for the following reasons:
As minimum wage has hit Juniors have become very expensive. We have had the luxury of training our juniors during the day which has affected turnover but the training has been much more successful as they take more in during the day and I feel that it would be a step in the wrong direction to go back to evenings.
I was paying my stylists 40% of their takings on target figures however I realised these were becoming easier to hit and were two low. As we improved average bill and got things the way they should be everyone was hitting their 40% with ease.
So in November we had a price increase of 10% (for the business) and we changed stylists commission to 35%. Fun that was as you can imagine trying to explain that one, anyway I have put in bonuses so in-fact they can still earn 40% but at much more realistic figures.
I have never really marketed our salon or done special offers apart from Christmas time more to reward the clients than anything else.
Then I stumbled across this web site and found the content really refreshing and interesting and exciting. After reading many of your ebooks I soon realised how I had been missing out!!
So the minute I saw your marketing advice I just had to get it. The day I got it I was presenting a Strategy Meeting with my staff for 2004, what a fantastic opportunity to put what I was reading into practice.
So I explained some of the things we were going to do and they all seemed very supportive. At the same time I had a really good Senior Stylist from my other shop leave and I used the Job Flyers in the window to help find someone.
I have always had a ongoing recruitment plan in place but this was the first time I had really marketed the idea. What a response, not so much from stylists but receptionists and juniors coming out of my ears. One stylist did come in but he wanted to work at my first shop and not the other as he had a big client base he said would follow him.
So I thought well I do not really need someone here but I will interview him and give him a trade test. He was Fantastic!!! I just had to take him on!!!! So great new stylist, your marketing programs, lets give it a real shot. You see to him this was how we always operated he did not realise that I had just got all this great information.
So we worked thru the vouchers, how to get people to rebook, consultation, with the focus on redesign (as everyone in our area are “colour experts”) flyers in the windows re new stylist offers, out in the street giving out leaflets, in local shops and in the area he used to work in, and as I said …
… he was fully booked Thursday, Friday and Saturday taking £700 even with the offers. Great!monitored his progress put up the sheets you sent and put all the others staffs details on their two.
Now we have always put a graph on the staff room every week but with out the detail its always been who took the most. Every member of staff was interested and could not wait to find out who had rebooked the most clients.
The second week went just as well even thought the weather caused a lot of cancellations. But he was still busy full booked Friday and Saturday, he even took the most on Saturday just gone!!!
I have noticed that the rest of the team have really started to pull their socks up, have started to be able to fit people in?, retail more? have fun in trying to get clients to rebook?.
The third week. Things still going well!! My new stylist took £959.00 net last week and did loads of offers, the flyer re only 50 cut & colours working fantastically well.
He has done 10 new clients to the salon and 50% have already re-booked. Starting new stylist at our other shop next week and we will be doing the same with her.
So far things have gone extremely well with the Alan’s advice I promise to keep you posted. Thanks.
Hope that helps.
Steve Winder, Salon Owner
PS Steve recently updated me on his progress and tells me one of his team is taking around £1,700 per week and all the salon is booked up every single week. It has taken him 16 weeks to get to this stage. NOT BAD I SAY!
I UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR SALON RIGHT NOW … I’ve Been There With My 3 Salons, Made All The Mistakes Before You. I Also Found The Solutions!
Salon Marketing School(TM) has been created to give you solutions so you can start marketing your salon, make changes in your life and make more money fast!
Since then I have also been around the globe almost six times teaching other salon owners just like you how to create more salon success!
In 2003 I spoke to over 1000 salon owners in former Soviet state, Latvia.
In 2006 I spoke to over 250 salon owners in Sydney, Australia.
For over 2 years I wrote a salon building column in UK based Salon Business magazine.
And I want to say up-front, although I no longer own salons I have been working in marketing and the hair salon business now for well over 20 years.
In fact just a while ago I took on as a consulting client the UKs number one salon, the totally brilliant, Michel Van Clarke in London.
Experts all over the world have paid for my advice. I have spoken to over tens of thousands of business owners just like you all over the planet.
Let me share a little more with you to PROVE my expertise. All of the following are fact and can be checked on any of my websites.
Since leaving my hair dressing salons I have built a reputation for incredible marketing results for my clients. In fact I have been to … Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Russia, Dubai, California, New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Malaysia, to name just a handful of places and taught well over 25,000 people about marketing.
These are pictures from me training businesses in Singapore to around 600 people in the room.
The one below with me wearing my kilt is in England to around 5000 people at one time.
That was a breath-taking expereince to say the least.
Here’s a video or two of me teaching in other parts of the World
Have you heard of a man named Jay Conrad Levinson?
Jay is on THE God father of direct marketing and has published over 50 millions books on the subject. He has been creating huge marketing successes for the past 50 years or more. This is me with Jay at dinner.
He sent me this email …
“Alan … you bring to the marketing landscape one of the most brilliant, sensible and realistic minds on this planet. You live in the present and your advice is so practical and helpful that you wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself. But the truth is that few people have the marketing insight that you demonstrate on a regular basis… ”

I bought the xtreme 21 and OMG
I just wanted to say thank you to Alan.
I married into hairdressing 9 years ago so im not a hairdresser, when i lost my job in the down turn and my wife was looking to sell her salon after having our first child, it was really rough, i came across some of Alan stuff online and joined his membership site on monthly payment thing
This was bad for Alan 🙂 but good for me because in one week i had enuff stuff to take my wife salon from a 2 chair drive thru village salon in Ireland to where we are now.
This year we moved to a bigger town so I bought the xtreme 21 and OMG, everything that Alan said to do I did, now wifey only works in salon on Saturdays, we paying for our house no bothers and Im actually bored and now thinking I need to move into the supplier and wholesale side of the business because I kind of shy having to be in the salon when everything is on autopilot.

“…. if anyone has any doubts about any of Alan’s ideas and courses just re-read the above a couple of times and get out your credit card and sign up. You wont be disappointed I promise. Jeanette (a much better off and happier salon owner).
…Hi Alan I signed up for all of Alan’s courses (e-books) after taking on a dying salon taking £300 per week. that was in may 02 ,9 months later I am now expanding into the empty shop next door.
since putting all of Alan’s ideas (and a few of my own) into operation I am now unable to fit all of my new clients into my present salon and taking more money in one day than I used to take in a week, this is just with myself 2 other stylists and 2 juniors working.
p.s. I am based in a small town in Liverpool UK and if we can do it anyone can http://www.trimmers-haircare.ik.com”

Just a short note about your new Salon Column Builder ebook. Have put into practice the first few pages of the book and have given my new stylist (Started Monday) some vouchers copied from the book and guess what he was fully booked Thursday, Friday and Saturday!!!! fantastic!!!! thanks!!!!
Just to keep you up to date on my progress. 2nd week in and my new Stylist has taken £850.00 nett!!.
He has been fully booked Friday and Saturday however the weather here has been bad. The vouchers and flyers are really working well and it has really made the rest of the Team pull up their socks!

“Woohoo it’s started working!It’s given me bags of confidence on upselling.
It’s like there’s so much to do every day even if it’s quiet.
It’s all the things we should know but we turn a blind eye to because we’re busy or just wasting time. I turned a £16 service into £45 today not to mention the product shell probably buy next visit!! It’s honestly paid for itself already!
Thankyou it’s sooo exiting…really getting confident now cheers guys – Georgina”

Hi Alan The way I see it as we begin our journey through 2016 is it’s going to be an even tougher challenge being a salon owner, manager, beauty therapist or stylist and its definitely going to be even more of a challenge as we approach 2017.The fact is our clients are bombarded with so much confusing information and marketing which quite often makes us feel misled or treats us like we are total idiots!So its no surprise that we are becoming meticulous where we spend our hard earned cash… It’s one of the reasons that reviews have become so popular because people are becoming more and more careful when they choose anything from a hairdressing salon to where they should buy their food!I see so much junk and rehashed and untested garbage that salon owners have been told to use in the salons that simply makes me feel despair because I know is just not going to work.
So I was really excited when I received my copy of 21 Salon Extreme to see a work manual that would guide you the salon owners, managers, beauty therapists and anyone looking for a clear uncluttered powerful step-by-step direction to not only market your salon but to create a complete dynamic system that can be implemented instantly into your business – even when you have SO much other stuff to do! and is up-to-date and READY for 2016/2017 and beyond!!I love the fact that it’s something I can hold and make notes in, work with and have explanations that really makes you think and understand why and where the concept has come from for each part of the manual. It’s the first time I have seen a combination of multilevel marketing where your guided through everything from Facebook, social media, SMS text, email, direct mail,

It even shows you how to test and measure everything you put in place to help you build your salon business.Just as a personal note from me “Alan,I know you have put your heart and soul into this manual and that it comes from someone who understands what its like to have your home on the line and the bank manager breathing down your neck and what its like to have failure and success and what that feels like – and we both know that it simply works…
So I would like to personally thank you from our industry for creating a tool that if used correctly will help build any salon business, reduce a little bit of stress and make our industry great!

Hi Alan, In reply I would like to say to you that the column builder has been a huge help to us. My daughter is asecond year apprentice – very keen and motivational…. My turnover is improving and my “lazy” hairdressers have now left and gone to another hairdresser.
So your column builder actually killed two birds with the one stone and motivated half of my staff and cleaned out the “lazy” ones that were not interested in marketing or motivation. When you cannot work the floor…you must have productive staff who are motivational or failure is on the way. I have now 4 productive, motivational staff members.
Woohoo it’s started working!It’s given me bags of confidence on upselling. It’s like there’s so much to do every day even if it’s quiet. It’s all the things we should know but we turn a blind eye to because we’re busy or just wasting time. I turned a £16 service into £45 today not to mention the product shell probably buy next visit!! It’s honestly paid for itself already!Thank you it’s sooo exiting…really getting confident now cheers guys
Been busy with your material.
This is what I think about the material. The first moment when I started to download it I know it was the right thing.
I felt huge inspiration. This material is really important for me cause I am working in a village, that means you gotta get the clients to get there.
Everything was there, but it was really one thing that I felt was missing.
You got the voucher and ads. But when you open a new small salon in a village you need to make flyers and put them in the mailboxes, not just when you open like 4 times a year.
Everything in the package is so great I just would like to see ideas about flyers for the villages hair salons.
This is what I did already. I used your Idea about recommend a friend, but I did it a little bit different. I used my business cards and on the backside I printed the offer, I give my clients that like 10 each and I didn’t use off on service. I called places where you buy hair products and asked them if they had something they wanted to get rid off so I could buy them cheap and I told them my idea of giving them away.
I told them my idea of giving them away.
I bought stuff for 10 Swedish crowns like 10 dollars each I mean brands that people know shampoo gel, hairspray everything. so I give them one product for every new client. So the women that works in our food store give them out to nearly everyone she knows. Of course I have done her hair already.
I gave her limit time of course. So I ended up with 1 dollar each new client and I didn’t lowered my price.
I forgot of course the friend also get a product it cost me 2 dollars sorry. I will let you know more what I am doing. But Alan if you got an idea about the flyers please let me know. That was the only missing link the way I see it.
Fabulous package. I am on my way now. Thank you so much.
I truly enjoy your website, and your emails. You’re a “shining star” in our profession, thank you.
Ellen USA New York
I love you web site and pages. I’m opening a salon and I’m learning a ton. My prospective salon is only 840 sq.ft. But I’m thrilled to begin. Thanks for the positive support,
Firstly thanks for an amazing concept you have done…I thoroughly enjoy your emails and reading all the info you put together. Thank You.!!!!!!
Cheers Kind regards from Kuwait
Dawn Bailey & Kathy McGregor Owners The Cutting Edge
hi there Alan,
I just wanted to let you know what a great website you have created.
Whilst I like creativity and really don’t want to be bothered with the “business stuff”, I am also in the business of making money. Your articles are excellent for getting people’s head out of the clouds and planting their feet on the ground. The Column builder articles are most relevent for freelancers like me. So now I have to go, because I’ve got some serious client building to do!
Once again, Thanks.
Susi Ray, South Australia
the man from Good salon guide arrived and was impressed with the Salon especially all “my” marketing stuff and gave us a 3 star rating.
Not bad eh as we only started up in may. thanks again for all your help
Since I just read two of your books this weekend, I have introduced the info on how to get rid of dead time to my staff already.
We’ve already selected several of them to start up – they are not the type to get excited right up front, but I can see that they are open to trying the referral one and the free service tacked onto a paying service.
They weren’t up for the cutting hair in the street (or parking lot for us) idea yet. However, the seed has been planted. Maybe this summer when it’s nice and balmy out, I can coax someone out there. And they’re still chewing on the standby idea. I thought these were enough to start off with. I’ve reserved the others for later when we need another boost on ideas.
When I’ve got more to tell you, I’ll send you details on how it’s all working – So far, I’d like to take a look at “increasing your take” on my next one for you.
Thanks for your help !!
I’ve rough sketched the beginnings of how to keep stylists happy. Still working on that one

Great site. Kari From Canada
I’ve loved going through the archived newsletters. I’ve learned so much that’s unique to this business already. Just one comment I’d like to make though. Because I’m not an experienced salon owner I have just sat back and absorbed your comments for the past few weeks. Superb.
Hello Alan, I have only just begun to read through some of the info you are offering…
I can relate to much of it!I have been in the beauty industry for 14 yrs. and have recently been questioning my career choices. I have been working as a stylist/manager. After careful evaluation , I have decided that I am going to work for myself. I believe that continuing your education on your ‘craft’ is vital and I continue to do so. I want to thank you for opening a window for me and letting fresh air flow (talk about dramatic huh). It was exactly what I needed!
Sincerely, Darlene K Scott
Nova Scotia, Canada
I am the quality systems manager at The Hairdressing Training School in Ipswich, Suffolk. I found your website very informative and I am glad that there is something on the web for salon managers to help them. Thank you!
Just a note to say how much we really enjoyed the last few days. It really was a mind blowing experience that’s kick started us into getting on with our lives. We’ve got so many ideas and already started making them happen. I would never have thought in a million years that just 3 days could be the catalyst we needed to change our lives.
I did write a testimonial for you but you have carte blanche touse anything I say about you along with my email and mobile number to help you if you want to.
We also wanted to talk to you about something you mentioned …
ALAN SAYS: for the sake of secrecy I have removed this part of the testimonial …
We’re both highly experienced in sales, marketing and businessdevelopment / management plus I’m aqualified coach and have helped both individuals and businesses evolve. Frank is especially talented in sales and has experience in coaching and training individuals using a proven, value-based sales methodology that blows their socks off! We have the skills, time and motivation to support you and help you make it really fly. We may even have a couple of candidates – I need to check into it to assess their seriousness and dedication.
I can’t express or even explain how I feel today – it’s like I’ve been of hypnotised and come round to a new life with super confidence. I’m also never a gushing person so even this is weird behaviour for me – was there something in those sandwiches at lunch time?!
I hope we can work together in the future, specifically on the young entrepreneur programme.
In case you don’t remember who we are – Frank’s the guy who provided the entertainment late on Saturday night in the bar with his wacky tales and I’m his quiet wife!
Good afternoon Alan,
I would be very grateful if you would let me know the powerpoint links, as although I frantically took notes, I can’t necessarily read everything I wrote(!) as the quality of information was coming thick and fast.
I have already edited my Sales letter which I send to my list at www.eBreakHotels.com using they keywords could and should and including a 30 day no quibble guaranteed refund.
I am just about to send an email to my other list at www.INeedDrivingLessons.co.uk and I am going to include the words ‘Buy Now, Pay in 30 days’. Normally I get around 4-6 sign-ups per email campaign, I am anticipating an improvement on this.As a matter of interest some of the Driving Instructors received up to about 25 emails before eventually signing up (paid sign-ups).
It was a great event, I am pleased that it was not only successful for us the visitors, but also for the experts, yourself included too.
Martin Caswell, www.eBreakHotels.com
At first glance, I bet you thought I was referring to the trifling £99 each we paid for your last Master Class…
Nothing could be further the truth.
The truth is Jane and I have “invested” So Much Money on useless hype and fluff from some so-called ‘Internet Experts’
– over £50,000 to be precise – that have got us absolutely nowhere! But after attending your MasterClass last week, we learnt more tips, saw more products, met the most amazing speakers, and networked with more people, than we have done in any other Internet gathering like this.
As you know, we are launching a new membership site next month which you can see at http://www.millionairesmentors.comwhich has cost us a lot of time and money to produce, and is going to greatly benefit from Kirt Christensen’s Gold Nuggets on how to fine-tune our Adwords campaign;
Jerry Hart’s talk on better email communications and higher traffic; Stephen Pierce’s amazing business strategies ( WOW – that was fast and furious); Mike Stewart’s audio and video systems (can’t wait to get this stuff ALL OVER our Blogs); Maria Davies on Public Speaking, and that magical rabbit out of a hat – Shaune Clarke on Interviewing Techniques … not to mention your excellent copywriting updates.
Several of these guys we had never heard of before, but boy, did they have the answers to the questions we were looking for…It was almost as if we had told The Universe what we wanted – and Alan Forrest Smith responded!
A number of your speakers have already agreed to JV with us,or to be interviewed by us for our new project, so when we hit the big time with this – a lot of the thanks must go to you, Alan.
Geoff & Jane Morris
PS Your Boy did a stalwart job helping in the background – He will go far – especially if he follows in your footsteps …
Hope you and the boys arrived home safely.
Just wanted to say a big ‘thanks’ for the fantastic weekend. Just couldn’t believe it when the price was so reduced it opened it up to me. And I took away SO MUCH that I can use in trying to rebuild our lives.
I guess you’ll receive so many emails, you may not even read this one but, just wanted you to know that being able to participate in events such as this fantastic weekend, is giving me the knowledge to CHANGE OUR FUTURE and I WILL.
Thanks, Alan, what more can I say. I hope that one day I will be in a position to ‘put something back into the pot’, too.
You don’t merely deserve a ‘gong’ – you deserve universal recognition!My testimonial couldn’t express how much I appreciated the Mega Master Class.
I think, NO I KNOW this is going to change my life.
Thank you so much.
I’m guessing you’re shattered & glad it’s all over!Just a quick thank you for setting up & hosting an excellent event.
I travelled over to the US twice last year but as far as content, this event was “awesome”.
Once again thanks and if you do future events then I’d be happy to pay you a more “commercial” rate!
Thank you so very much for the marvellous three days which you gave us this week. ‘Gave’ is the operative word, because the price was truly amazing.
I confess to reserving my place purely on the grounds that at £99.00 for two I simply could not lose. It was not far into the first day before I realised that this was the most fantastic bargain imaginable, worth many, many times what you charged.
Thank you for bringing together these amazing people, for their presentations being 99.9999% content and only a minute fraction of selling – so unlike many other events I have attended – and for the astonishing amount that I learnt.
I wish you every success in whatever you choose to do. It was a pleasure to meet you.
With all good wishes,
It was a real pleasure to attend your event, meet the boyz and the speakers were on fire and very entertaining start to finish!
I Just have a quick question for you which we all have;
“How do we gain access to all the slides and other content the speakers told us about” [no one wants to miss out on our bonuses and additional material – its THAT good].
Especially interesting to me was the data given by the AudioVideo guy who told me that we should get that link sent to us – any ideas?
Well the feedback from my guys: it was brilliant the best one with the most intersting packages at the best realistic price ever seen!!!
Hope to speak with you soon, very best
Just a quick note on How much i really enjoyed your MasterClass Event.
It was tremendous value with so much outstanding content.
I have got together with my guest and ordered your dvd offer and am looking forward to getting them soon.
Just one query – do you have your PowerPoint presentation available?
Your talk on copywriting was real opener, and Frankly i get wait to to get hold of your copywriting dvd.
Also do you have the link to Kirt Christensen presentation ? I remember him giving us his link but i don’t seem to have written it.
Thanks once again,
Mega MasterClass was exceptional value for money. Alan totally over delivered on his promise and provided absolutely life changing content through his exceptional array of premium speakers.
Thanks Alan, it was PHENOMENAL.
Tim Dodd, www.GiantsAwakening.com
THANK YOU SO MUCH ALAN!!!!
Alan words nearly fail me! WOW.
You and your team of international expert over delivered time and time again.
I’m grateful (beyond words) . you were all approachable, down to earth, full of integrity and passion.
It was all inspiring and tremendously helpful toward my own endeavour.
I know I will share back with you all in due course.

Alan you have stunned me with the quality & quantity of all the guests and information you have brought together for his unique — MEGA MASTERCLASS — just one of the hundreddes of nuggest of information that you and your team delivered is worth way more than any fee I have paid for the ticket.
I am convinced this info will explode my online business
Graham Hawarth, FixedOddStrategy.com 01395 442777
The Mega MasterClass was THE ultimate OVER Delivery
Imagine having Tiger Woods spoon feeding you step by step through every major he has won.
Imagine Steve Redgrave telling you exactly how he won gold medals it five consecutives Olympics
Imagine Shane Warne showing you how he gets the ball to spin of the pitch like a cobra
Imagine Lance Armstrong revealing just how he won 7 tour de France
Imagine David Beckham demonstrating how he bends a ball like a boomerang …
ALL IN THE SAME PLACE!
Well Alan delivered the Internet Marketing equivalent for an outrageous price!
The DVD Masters should be locked away in Fort Knox and should never see the light of day!
My name is John Hobson
Tremendous ideas and inspiration.
ANYTHING from Alan Forrest Smith GUARANTEES QUALITY!
This guy (Alan) walks on water! And he says it’s his final MasterClass; now there’s a tragedy.
There’s so much empty hype out there to derail a newbie, Alan’s like a breath of fresh air, well, ok — a whirlwind!
He’s passionate and caring, he delivers and empowers and I can climb the mountain to my dreams because he did and he’s shared with us how he did it!
And who doesn’t he know? The seminar speakers (Jerry, Kirt, Shaune, Stephen and Mike) gave their very souls because they respect Alan and he asked them to!
Now if THE GURUS feel that way, that’s good enough for me.
Thanks Alan, Mentally I’m flying … destination achievement!
Janet Swift, 01452 371954, firstname.lastname@example.org
Absolutely without a doubt the BEST EVENT I have ever been to!!!” The mega MasterClass has been packed to the brim, in fact overflowing — fantastic with great content and great speakers.
All the speakers Alan had lined up were phenomenal. Even the few I hadn’t heard of were fantastic.
Cutting-edge, blow your brain information. Unsurpassable!
I have witnessed some life changing things in the last 3 days. I can’t thank you enough Alan.
Anyone who missed this Mega MasterClass will surely regret it.
Alan has excelled in every possible way!
The Mega MasterClass that was put together by Alan (at a ridiculous price) has been one of the most valuable experiences of my life!
The volume of information from each speaker has been simply amazing! So many pieces of advice, all given from the heart, have made me realize this stuff is easy — why aren’t there more people doing it?
The golden nugget I’m taking is — TAKE ACTION!
Zain Bador, 3rdbrado.com
I attend at least one Internet Marketing convention every year both here and in the USA.
I can honestly say that the content delivered here far away exceeded anything else I’v attended in the past!
I’ve seen Kirt several time before, the detail Alan forced him to reveal here was amazing and the knowledge I can use immediately to improve my PPC marketing.
Stephen Pierce I saw last December and I thought was great, he gave insights into running my business I’ve NEVER heard of before. His 4 hour session had a profound effect on me and will make a major difference to my business.
Mike Stewart provided a step by step approach to adding audio and video to my websites and blogs which was easy to follow.
I’ve just started podcasting so his session was invaluable, just the right time.
If you get a chance to go to any of Ala Forrest Smith’s future master classes … JUST GO!

I have been completely knocked out by the mega master class seminar that Alan Forrest smith organised. I had already heard some of the speakers and really looked forward to hearing them again. However, Alan really pulled the rabbit out of the hat with some speakers that haven’t been to the UK before, such as jerry hart and Shaune Clarke- wow what a treat!
The seminar has been pure content. All the speakers gave highly rich and interesting presentations. I have been working on the internet for a couple of years how hurt as always there were some real nuggets that will save me a fortune, for more than the cost of the seminar. The seminar that Alan organised was awesome. I would certainly recommend Alan’s seminar for anyone whether just considering starting on the internet or really experienced on the internet.
Thank you Alan, what you have learned this week was worth the it in the seminar investment ten times over.

From all the internet marketing seminar I’ve attended this year (and there have been a few!) this is the one I’ve come away from with practical advice and the motivation and support to implement it. Priceless!

Alan, these 3 days at the seminar, you have delivered massively, all the speakers gave very valuable information. I believe will lead to massive increase in my profitability from my work business.
Alan, your Mega MasterClass absolutely blew my mind! It amazes me how much value every single presenter gave. There was hardly any selling because people wanted what you had.
You all had the knowledge, skills and ability to make this stuff easy to understand within a fun and engaging format.
I am so grateful for everything I learnt this weekend it was MORE USEFUL THAN THE 3 YEARS I spent at university.
Thank you Alan and your team you honestly have changed my life in a very powerful way and made me realise what is possible but also very achievable now I have the awareness of internet business and this amazing tool
Thank you, thank you, thank you

I have been to several internet seminars over the last 6 months and have come to expect a particular amount of content that is released during them. So I was amazed at the amount of REAL IN-DEPTH solid information which could be truly described as ‘insider information’ that was presented at the Mega MasterClass seminar.
In short … IN INCREDIBLE amount of information for an incredible low price!
Martin Colborne, Mcolborne@sisrc.com
Alan put together an excellent value for money package of presenters who have shown us how to do things, NOW for our online businesses.

It was difficult for me to take time off work to come this weekend, but I know it was one of the best weekends I have invested in myself. The best thing was the opportunity to meet Kirt Christensen and get the opportunity to get to REALLY understand how Adwords can transform my web business.
All the presneters were just so pwoerful and provided tremendous value by giving do much information. I had so much little gaps that got filled this weekend. Thank you for all giving your time this weekend. Special thank you to Alan for all the hard work putting this togheter.

Akasha, EmpoweringPartnership.com, email@example.com
I came to Mega Masterclass thinking it was mainly about Copywriting. When I found it it was more on general internet marketing I was disappointed.
However it has been absolutely brilliant and one of the best events I have attended at any price
The content has been incredible, the speakers have been awesome and given so much.
Plus there was some great stuff on copywriting as well.
Thanks Alan and the whole team

A superb course with speakers of the highest claibre. I have learnt more about internet marketing, in fact about the internet in these 3 days than I have learnt before.

AN EXCELLENT THREE DAYS PACKED WITH QUALITY SPEAKERS AND QUALITY CONTENT!
WHERE ELSE COULD YOU GET SPEAKERS LIKE MIKE STEWART, STEPHEN PIERCE, ALAN FORREST SMITH, KIRT CHRISTENSEN UNDER ONE ROOF? AMAZING!
MIKE TAYLOR, ONLINEMARKETINGJOBS.COM
I have learned more in these 3 days than I have done from all the seminars I have attended in all my life put together!
Tracking, Adwords, selective copywriting strategies, learning techniques for marketing and display advertising, also the audio and video formatting that I have learned will no doubt increase my business soon as now.
That is no overstatement as I have altered 2 headlines and adjusted some text on my homepage with an instant increase in opt-ins
Thank you Alan for a great 3 days.
Matt Shaw, FixedOddsTrader.com
The content and the speakers were absolutely AMAZING!
I’ve done 7 day seminars that haven’t been anywhere near as good.
It covered every single aspect of marketing and content creation. I’m going home to implement just a fraction of what we’ve been given as I know just that little bit alone will double my business.
Then I’ll implement another fraction and increase my business even more. I can’t wait!

I’ve seen Alan here and there but never live.
During his seminar I soon learnt that Alan is a brilliant marketer, copywriter and manager.
The seminar was organised very smart covering everything in the right sequence and right timing.
Alan is also a great speaker on stage and surprised me with his ay of dressing and the ay he communicates with attendees.
Mega Masterclass simply ROCKED!
Sandis Viksna, SandisViksan.com
Alan thank you for putting on a first class event.
The whole seminar deliver , no over DELIVERED real useable content and excellent value.
I know I have gained at least 5 ideas that I can use in my business immediately to produce measurable result, valuable results.
Little wonder that your attends have such a high success rate in their business.
I attended Alan Forrest Smith’s Mega MasterClass in October 2006 and as ever the content he delivered was second to none.
I don’t know how he finds these guys and gets them to deliver such unique content.
If Alan ever runs one of these event again I strongly recommend you attend.
I have walked out of here at the end of every ay with an idea that I can use immediately to make my business more profitable.
These guys spilled their guts, fabulous 3 days.
Alan YOU MUST RUN ANOTHER.
Jane Morris, MillionaireMentors.com
Thank you for a wonderful 3 days of packed content. The speaker gave their all and really delivered (I wasn’t sure if you would deliver before hand … YOU DID!)
I got so many actionable tools that I can put into place on Monday morning.

Alan has delivered fantastic value for money bringing together top experts covering both cutting-edge tactics and strategies. Once youre seen this seminar there are no excuses for online success.
Mike Spurgeon, HumanBizMatch.com
INTERNET MARKETING CLASSES … MMMM …I’m a cynic.
Too often over-promise and under deliver. But I gave this one a go. I don’t know why perhaps it was something to do with the fact that it was masterminded by a man in a kilt!
I can only say that I was blown away. What a fantastic event that simply oozed value. Every speaker delivered an abundance of valuable information during some of the most dynamic sessions I have ever experienced.
Not only did I leave with tons of revolutionary ideas that could change my life but I also made some great new contacts and had a blast in the process
The mega masterclass was truly and unbelievable experience and a real inspiration.
Alan is a fantastic guy and I’m looking forward to working with him again.

The content this weekend has been awesome!
Outstanding quality and quantity!
From all of the Internet Marketing seminars I’ve attended this year (and there have been a few), this is one I’ve come away from with practical advice and motivation to support to implement it.
Watch this space.
Anne Chochrane, anne.Cochrane@tiscali.co.uk
This is the very first seminar I came to in the UK and boy was I blown away!!
I have reasonably successful internet business already and there are still plenty of those AHAA effects in the 3 content packed days that Alan and his team delivered.
For anyone even thinking about learning from these guys, I would strongly advice that you just take the leap of faith and just do it!
You’ll at least make 3 times your investment back if not 4 or even 5.
Rely on these guys, coz they deliver!
Saumil Patel, SaumilPatel.com
Having never (ever) attended an Internet Marketing conference before , I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan Forrest Smith and his group of merry men. Come along with an open mind and delight in the experience of having it filled with all sorts of wonders.
Generosity, Integrity, dedication, commitment!
Frank Mains, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank Your for your web site. I read lots of info about increasing sales and profitability in salons, but I have learned the most from you. Your salon column builder systems work! My sales are going up and my staff is happy.
Thanks Alan, you’re the best!
I signed up for all of Alan’s courses (e-books) after taking on a dying salon taking £300 per week. that was in may 02 ,9 months later I am now expanding into the empty shop next door. since putting all of Alan’s ideas (and a few of my own) into operation I am now unable to fit all of my new clients into my present salon and taking more money in one day than I used to take in a week, this is just with myself 2 other stylists and 2 juniors working.
So…. if anyone has any doubts about any of Alan’s ideas and courses just re-read the above a couple of times and get out your credit card and sign up. You wont be disappointed I promise.
Jeanette (a much better off and happier salon owner)
p.s. I am based in a small town in Liverpool UK and if we can do it anyone can.
Alan … without you, my business would not have gone from $8,000 to just over $16,000 in a matter of weeks! All due to your Salon Column Builder©I might add… ”
Your “The Worlds Greatest Resource for Hair Salon Owners”is great. There is absolutely no reason for salon owners to fall short with their business with Salon Column Builder plus all the other kind of info in existence. Do you sleep?
Albert Crimi Salon & Spa Services International.
‘With Alan’s support I made the changes and STILL made the 116% growth.
I have taken what Alan has taught me with my own skills and knowledge and have not only taken my business to near full capacity but he have given me a better understanding of business and I am just about to launch 2 big projects out with the salon.
I now have the confidence and knowledge to push my career forward and create the work life I want… He has genius ideas that were so inspiring I didn’t take much time to get excited and start putting them into action.
Anyone thinking of working with Alan I would say go for it. There’s absolutely no question – It will change your life like it did mine.
