Online Success Cast #23: Charlie Page

onlinesuccesscast-smWelcome to another episode of the Online Business Success Cast.

This week, I have Charlie Page, with me. He's a brilliant business consultant and just a really great person. (I like him a lot and think you will, too!) 🙂

The audio recording of our interview is at the end of this blog post. Just look for the “play” button and listen. It’s free! Also, be sure to check out all of the resources listed below.

If you're not familiar with Charlie yet, here's more about him–

Charlie Page

Charlie Page is the author of over 10 eBooks on Internet marketing and the owner of the Directory of Ezines.

The Directory of Ezines is the world's first and best online resource for advertising and article marketing with ezines, also known as newsletters.

He is considered the leading expert on marketing with ezines.

Charlie began his online career as a copywriter. His specialty as a copywriter is writing sales letters, selling emails, and autoresponder messages that cause readers to take action in record numbers. One of Charlie's sales letters garnered an amazing 34% conversion rate during the introduction of a very well-known eBook about Internet marketing.

In 2000, Charlie joined the Directory of Ezines as a member and began using ezine marketing to grow his business. The result? 18 months later he bought the company! He continues to teach his DOE members how to create their own success story using ezines.

Charlie has contributed to books in print as well as eBooks, helping Robert Allen complete Multiple Streams of Internet Income as well as working with Jay Aaron and Jay Conrad Levinson (the father of Guerilla Marketing) to create their web and print project called Guerilla Marketing to the Masses.

Charlie has been interviewed by the best and brightest minds online including Alex Mandossian, Yanik Silver, Jim Edwards, Jack Humphrey and many more.

    Wow! Loved the interview, and since I’m new to article marketing I’m looking forward to checking out Charlie’s site.

    Great job, Nicole!

  • Heidi Johnson

    I’m glad I took the time to listen to this interview. You’re both such sweet people to listen to. I learned a lot about what I’m doing right and wrong.

    I’m one of those that is not successful online yet, so it was great to hear all your encouragement. I’d love to have some good direction for my business. If I win this, maybe it will be the ticket for me to finally earn a living online.

    Thanks Nicole and Charlie!

  • Tracy Roberts

    These 3 simple words were worth the whole interview for me:

    Focus, Passion & Resilience

    Thanks, Nicole & Charlie!

  • Glyn Lafferty

    Excellent interview I have known about Charlie for about a year now and his article marketing work and training is second to none.

    The Directory of Ezine is without a doubt the best ezine out there with some unreal click thru rate’s which are boasted about but are also true.

    Great stuff


  • Charles Helton

    Hello Nicole great interview. I enjoyed both of you so much helpful information, I plan to use the information learned. I so glad I discovered you I wish I knew about you sooner.Great stuff thank you

  • Kevin Frost

    Great interview! You really no how to pick good subjects: IMO Charlie is one of those people you don’t hear much about but who is just crushing it out there in one focused niche.

  • Sarah

    Always great to hear your interviews Nicole! They are so inspiring. I had heard for the DOE before, but never took the plunge, will definitley have to try it out though. Over the past months have been trying to strengthen my site and it’s been a bumpy ride so far! But I guess it’s all about not giving up and pulling yourself up again when everything seems to be going down.

  • Ronda Kay

    Nicole – I’m so addicted to your interviews. 🙂 Each one is a delicious visit to a new world, and this one with Charlie came to me at the critical point of launching my first online biz, I have ‘launch-itis’ and after listening [twice now] I feel so much better!

    You and Charlie took me to so many important realizations about general issues like focus, and more specifically, and happily, a motivating explanation about an article marketing strategy that may work for me…

    I LOVE your interview questions that bring us to the heart of your guests. I was very inspired by Charlie’s sharing of his dedication as a 19 year-old to taking on responsibility to go out and ‘kill it and drag it home’ somehow, to support his young bride. Hearing about their partnership throughout so many trials was like a beautiful soundtrack behind this interview!

    The thought of having a lifetime connection to Charlie’s thoughtful guidance is a true prize, indeed!

    Thanks for all you do!

  • Virtual Team

    Once again I enjoyed your interview. It’s always so inspiring to me. Love Charlie’s advice on tracking things. Since I’m just beginning it couldn’t be better timing.

  • Jeanie

    Another great podcast. I am slowly working my way through them all. I appreciate all the hard work you put into each thing you do.

  • Liz

    I love Charlie Page. I’m a member of his Directory of Ezines and I’ve gotten a ton more out of it than I paid for it. Charlie’s awesome. BTW, great interview! Thanks Nicole and Charlie 🙂

  • Emma

    Wow! I got some really useful information from the interview. Thanks for sharing the information Chralie. I have taken loads of notes so will be very busy over the next few days researching Adtrackers, Autoresponders, Squeeze pages, Relevant Twitter forums, AWebers and PL reports. I am just starting out in the internet marketing arena and am so motivated and excited to get moving forward. I have young children like you Nicole I so am trying to juggle listening to your interviews, researching the relevant info and writing content for my soon to be launched website in between looking after the kids. I love it though and thanks for keeping me on track and helping me move forward.

  • Steve Grissom

    Wow. Interview opened my eyes to a lot of opportunities. I’m a newbie, at ground zero, and found great info and inspiration from this podcast and from Nicole and Charlie.

  • Debbie


    I’ve been interested in this resource for a long time but have been hesitant because a few warriors said that their results from advertising were not that effective in many ezines. Do you know how often the database is updated that he has? Also I was thinking of using it to find publishers to publish my articles. Have you used it for that purpose? Deb
