If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’re probably aware that I live in the Philippines. I moved here from Las Vegas a few years ago to enjoy the benefits of living in a low-cost tropical paradise, and to build up my internet marketing business.
A couple of weeks ago, one of my IM friends back in the U.S. informed me that Willie Crawford, one of the most successful and respected internet marketers in the business, was in the Philippines with his Filipina wife to visit their in-laws. I’d never met Willie, but I figured this was the perfect opportunity for me to introduce myself to him.
I managed to get ahold of Willie on Skype, we chatted about the Philippines, and I arranged a time to meet with him on Saturday. As it turned out, this was easier said than done. Willie was in Iba, a small province along the beach in the northern Philippines. I really had no idea where it was, and the provinces of the Philippines aren’t exactly easy to navigate. But I was determined to meet him, so I called my buddy Zack and we hopped in his 1967 Land Cruiser and high-tailed it up to Iba.
After four hours of barreling down rocky back roads and through maze-like villages — and frequently getting pointed in the wrong direction by the locals — we finally arrived at Willie’s seaside hangout. I smiled when I saw the “office” he’d been working out of for the last week: a laptop set up under a shady tree, overlooking the beach.
Willie told me that a few days earlier, he’d hosted a webinar from that very spot, underneath that tree, which would end up earning him around $50,000 when all the commissions came in. These are the types of internet marketing stories I love hearing; a guy sitting by the beach in a village in the Philippines, working on a laptop with a spotty Wi-Fi connection, generating in one hour what the average working stiff is lucky to make in a year.
Then again, Willie Crawford is no ordinary internet marketer. If you’ve been in the internet marketing game for a while, chances are you’ve heard his name. He’s been making money online since 1996 and today, he’s considered by many to be the world’s leading online JV (Joint Venture) broker. Essentially, this means that when internet marketers want to launch their new products on a massive scale, they come to Willie to have him recruit and organize the affiliates. For his efforts, Willie earns a cut of the sales.
Willie’s network of affiliates and contacts is so vast and deep that when he puts his muscle behind a launch, it can rapidly hit high-six or even seven figures. He has also taught thousands of students, at dozens of seminars in the United States, Malaysia, Singapore and the U.K. (Recently, I hired one of Willie’s former students to serve as the JV Manager for my upcoming “Google Resurrection” product launch.)
In this video, I speak with Willie about what it takes to be a JV Broker. This is an interesting and lucrative “niche” in the IM space that you might want want to consider getting into. And if you’ve got a product that you want to turn into a six or seven-figure sensation, Willie’s students are trained to make it happen for you.

Having spent an afternoon hanging out with the man himself, I can tell you that Willie is not only one of the most knowledgable and connected people in IM — he’s also a funny, gracious guy and a tireless worker who loves networking and bringing people together so that they, too, can experience the rewards of being a successful internet marketer.
