Nev Be In Vancoooooover

That’s probably the worst representation of saying, “I’ll be in Vancouver till July 5th” ever!

So if I’m slower than normal at answering email you’ll know why!

AppSumo and Neville Sittin in a tree….

Ohh boggity!

It’s about time AppSumo wised up and shared with it’s Sumo-lings what it was hoarding…

The information in my “How my HouseOfRave Muse Works” product.

Those greedy Sumo’s wouldn’t post this deal till I showed up at their door with a Katana sword:

Actual depiction of the encounter:

The AppSumo’s checked out all the video How-To’s of how I built a “muse” business (a business that requires little work, can be run from anywhere, and pays for your lifestyle).  They liked what they saw, and knew it would GREATLY benefit their users to see someone “open the curtain” behind their muse.

They agreed: It’s a peek into a business unlike anything else they’ve seen….

The product shows not just how it started, but how all the tiny day-to-day operations work.  Most people are so confused or think this stuff is so hard, THEY NEVER START! This product has helped tons of people have an “AH HA” moment where they realize it’s NOT hard as they think.

The AppSumo’s respected my forcefulness and I am now part of the Sumo clan.  I have also adopted their lifestyle.

Here is my progress after only 1 week of Sumo-style eating:

I totally didn’t use Photoshop on that picture either :-P


I can blow smoke up your ass about my product all day, but here’s what REAL CUSTOMERS had to say (and YES, every last one of these is real):

“Watching these videos -really- makes me want to start tinkering around and get started.”
-Kimberly Grevel

“Nev, just a quick note – I ended up buying this not because I am particularly interested in starting an online drop shipping store but because I already run a business doing online courses. That may not make any sense at all, lol, but I was interested to see how you set up your course (as most people in my field go WAY over complicated and such just for no reason at all other than that’s the way others do it) and I have to say I’m really impressed with your format!  The really straightforward/hanging out way you have this set up is definitely making me take a closer look at how I can make my courses even more fun and interesting!”
-Jerimi Walker

This is really great content man!
-Chris Dunn

“Hi Nev, I’ve been reading Nevblog for a long time now. I really enjoy some of the stuff you post. Its really cool that you share so much of your life with everyone. I especially like the “experiments” that you have done such as when you went homeless, the bottled water experiment, and the affiliate marketing experiment. Anyway, I purchased and watched your videos about House of Rave. I’d love to get a business like this going myself.”
-Travis Hebig

“Its funny, actually how I came to this point. I had come across your blog YEARS ago, I don’t even know how anymore. I thought it was cool how you never had a ‘real’ job, and were so open about sharing what you do. Well, somehow I lost track of your blog, and it wasn’t until last week that I thought about it again, happily found it and added it to my reader. I was also thrilled that you were working on a tell-all program about your HOR business. Seemed the timing was just right for me.”
-Scott J.

“I’m working my way through your videos. They are really good, with a lot of info that I find interesting. I think that the videos allow for more of your personality to show through compared to a post on your blog. Good job on the screen capturing portion of the videos.”
-Michael B.

“I have a few friends who have tried to do similar things, the difference of course being that they have not started and run a successful business like yours, and they don’t have all of the years of feedback and questions to develop a good “course” around it.”
-Adam McFarland
“Neville, finished all the videos. Will watch them again – very good stuff!”
-Scott J.

“I thought to use PayPal like that you needed a merchant account. I’m so glad that’s not the way it is. I’ll be sure to use this info. Your “Do-not-do-it!” video reminded me of my girlfriend doing Amway and made me laugh! Overall this is a great product Nev! Thanks for putting this together!”
-Kimberly Grevel

“I’m really enjoying the Behind the Scenes at HouseOfRave videos. I have been a fan of your blog for a long time, so I thought this might be a way to help repay you a little for all that you share.”
-Michael Baggett

“It took about 2 hours to get through all the great material that Nev has put together. It was worth the time and the money. There are several very valuable snippets of information that are going to help me with my current business and help me create a product based service too. I certainly recommend this product to anyone wanting to improve their financial situation.”
-Kim G.

“Nev, Thanks for the product. I’ve gotten some really good ideas for my own project.”

“I wanted to sleep and read your blog at night, then bought the thing through PayPal now I’m still up! Great stuff Nev seriously!”
-Jason L.

“Another teenager here and long time reader of Nevblog. I figured I’ve wasted more than $37 on textbooks for school that didn’t teach me jack spit, so it was worth the nominal fee. Very cool to see how it all works…and how easy it is. Plus because I actually had to spend money, I am even more motivated to create my own store and earn my investment back.  Don’t worry though, don’t plan on copying HoR ;) Overall cool videos, I’d recommend to anyone reading this right now wondering if they should purchase or not.”
-Jennifer O.

“This is the best course on starting a Internet business that money can buy; bar none. If this doesn’t give you a basis of making money, than nothing will. Neville, you outdid yourself and I only wish Congress could be as transparent as you :-)”
-Michael Monaco

….and there’s TONS more!  These are just the testimonials I got the first week I released this!!


Here’s a video look into the product if you’re STILL not convinced to check it out yet:


When I first released this, it was $37….that price was too low.  Even CUSTOMERS told me they feel they ripped me off cause the price was low!

Now it’s $99 to buy from my blog, but is running a deal on it FOR ONE DAY ONLY.  Check it out before price jacks back up to 99 bones.

I stand by this 100%, and with every purchase you get the right to email me with any questions for a YEAR.


P.S. Could you please Tweet or Facebook the Deal page:

If I get a fantastic response, I’ll do a comprehensive case study on how this “Daily Deal” through AppSumo worked for me.

HoR Promo Giveaway 1

By the way, if you copy this idea, let me know how it worked for you!  I’m curious.

As part of my June 2011 Goals I wanted to do TWO promotional giveaways.

This is the first one in June..and since yesterday it’s got 400+ entries to try to win this stuff:

It’s so easy how I got people to enter the “contest” to win this stuff.  I explain it in the video below:

Cool huh?

Customers love it + someone wins free stuff + they give great testimonials + I feel all loved + I get rid of samples I otherwise throw away = GREAT PROMOTION!

June 2011 Goals

What has two thumbs and new goals for June 2011??


So here they are:

1.) Starting work on (in fact I just put up a page).  After the success of the copywriting video I did for AppSumo, it’s time to step that up a notch.  I can’t believe how many people it’s already helped.  The Kourse I’m throwing together will do an even better job.

2.) Action Video on AppSumo.  I want to do another free Action Video like the copywriting one…except I’ll interview someone, instead of me getting interviewed.

3.) Two HouseOfRave giveaways.
I’ve got a bunch of product samples piling up in my closet and I need to get rid of them with my famous HoR Giveaways: Screenshot here.
Usually in the past this has worked very well because….well….how can I say this eloquently?  –> People love free shit!

Cheers to a good start to June 2011!  Do YOU have YOUR goals down yet?
