Is The Medicus Driver A Scam?

Dear Golfer,

Let's get something dead straight before we start.

I don't believe in using golf training aids by themselves to improve your golf game.

Really, I don't. Let me tell you why.

First let me tell you how I got there and why I'm writing this...

A few weeks ago I got a call from a friend of mine who is an avid golfer. He was raving about this new golf trainining aid called the Medicus Driver.

My friend loves PGA Pro Mark O'Meara and decided to heed Mark's advice and purchased the Medicus Driver. He told me Mark O'Meara is a big advocate of swinging the club on plane.

I trust my friend's opinion which is why I clicked on the link in the first place.

"But why don't I believe in golf training aids?"...

Let me explain. I have reviewed over 100 golf training aids. I know which ones have value and which ones are garbage.

However, I have never been a big fan of using golf training aids to improve your golf game. These productsall have great sales pages promising miracle improvements in your golf swing. New golfers see "improves all aspects of your swing", and think "wow! ALL aspects of my swing huh, here's my credit card info."

Then the same golfers who bought the training aids realize that a list of instructions with some fancy golf gizmo means nothing on it's own - only after wasting their cash on the training aids...and then the next hot golf training aid comes out and the cycle repeats itself... Great for the guys who sell the golf training aids, pretty crappy for the poor new golfer who bought it.

So you can imagine my thoughts when my friend called me recommending the Medicus Driver . As I said earlier, it is only because he normally is spot-on that I even clicked anyway.

When I went to Medicus Driver website, I was actually pretty impressed with the sales copy, and even more impressed with some of the features that this appears to have - eliminate slices and hooks and hit longer, more accurate shots time after time, pretty impressive...

But, again, I have to be honest with you...

At this point I'm thinking to myself, "nice sales copy, lots of features, this will sell well...but again, it just isn't going to be too practical ...so forget it".

And that was that...I left the site. But then my friend emails me and tells me his slice has all but gone away and his drives have increased by 40 yards. He said I needed to drop whatever I was doing and get this. So I half-heartedly purchased the Medicus Driver.

I swung the Medicus Driver for about 30 minutes in my backyard then headed off to the range.

Does it work?... - read on...

• Is the Medicus Driver the best way to improve consistency and control?

• Can the Medicus Driver work for golfers of all levels?

•...And does the Medicus Driver allow you to develop muscle memory so you develop a perfect and repeating swing?

The thing I really liked about the Medicus Driver is you can hit balls with it, even with the 460cc head.

It took me a few swings as I had some obvious flaws in my golf swing I had no idea were there.

Once I got the hang of hitting balls with the Medicus Driver (after about 20 minutes), my swing was no less than amazing!

I suddenly realized before the Medicus Driver I had been rushing my take away, now I'm giving my golf swing the time to develop into a powerful and repeatable swing!

Even my 13 year old daughter was hitting balls with the Medicus Driver in no time and she's a beginner golfer!

Well, I became a true believer in the Medicus Driverand now keep it in my bag!

Make sure you buy the Medicus Driver from the Medicus Golf site, you'll get FREE shipping and it will ship within 24 hours.

If you decide to buy the Medicus Driver on Ebay - BUYER BEWARE!! You probably won't get the bonuses and shipping time could take forever.

Also, if you have order issues with any of these non Medicus Golf Sites, are you confident they will be resolved in a timely manner??...

Something to think about...

Play well.

Niche Discovery Tactics Gurus Don't Teach But Use Themselves

1. Choose a topic that you like, have experience or are interested in.

2. Take the main keyword from this topic and plug it into a keyword research tool.

3. Look at the search count. If it is about 30,000 per month, it's a good niche. If it is below 30,000 searches, there is very little market and therefore it is not a good niche. If it is way above 30,000 searches, there is probably too much competition and therefore it is risky to enter this niche market.

That's it. Based on those three steps, you are supposed to find a niche. What's wrong with such a teaching?

Firstly, there is no research into the competition. No step is taken to discover how strong a competition you face in that niche.

Secondly, there is no research into long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords are defined as keyword phrases of at least 4 words (the more words, the better). Every marketer knows the importance of long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords can lead you to lucrative sub-niches.

Thirdly, there is no research into the tendency of the searchers to buy. It's not only a matter of whether the searchers have money or not. Some people in a particular niche market may have money but are not intending to buy anything.

So here's how the gurus really do their niche and keyword research:

1. Examine your own interests, abilities, knowledge, experiences. Anything from these may be a potentially good niche to market to.
Ads by Google

2. Identify what's hot in the market i.e. what is currently the most talked-about thing, what's buzzing or new in town. Is this a potential niche?

3. From the above two steps, identify potential niches. Then run these potential niches through these 'filters':

a. Are people in this niche ready to buy and not merely information seekers or looking for freebies? For example, 'how to score an 'A' in your SAT examination' would probably not be a very lucrative niche because it would interest only students who may not have the money to buy anything much.

b. Is there a problem that the people in this niche cannot solve themselves? Any niche involving technical expertise would nicely fit into this criteria. For example, 'how to solve Windows Vista registry problems' would likely be a good niche because very few people are technologically competent enough to deal with these problems.

c. Do the people in this niche have an urgent crisis that needs to be overcome? The more urgent the better. For example, 'how to stop your teenager's drug habit' is an extremely urgent crisis that begs for answers.

d. Is there an 'evergreen' need in this niche that is not a just a fad? 'How to improve your golf swing' is an evergreen need compared to 'strategies for World of Warcraft' (World of Warcraft is a PC game). Once the fad for World of Warcraft is over, the market in this niche disappears.

Obviously, the more 'yes' answers you get to the above questions the more potentially profitable a niche is.

4. Once you have identified a potentially profitable niche based on the steps above, it is time to look for some long-tail keywords. These long-tail keywords will reveal some sub-niches which you can further profit from. For example, if you type in 'golf swing' into Wordtracker, you would get a whole list of related searches. Look for keyword phrases with four words or more. Some of them are 'stack and tilt golf swing', 'biomechanics of golf swing', 'what is the proper weight distribution during the golf swing' etc.

5. To find out how much competition there is in this niche, simply type in all the keywords you have into Google's free keyword analysis tool. This tool will give you the estimated advertiser competition (which is the same as marketer competition), average search volume for the previous month and average monthly search volume. The great thing is that this tool also gives you synonyms for the keywords which means you get more keyword suggestions. You identify keywords with as little competition but as many searches as possible.

The steps above represent a much more complete way of niche discovery. You will not only find profitable niches but also the relevant keywords that go with these niches. By doing this you make a solid start in your niche marketing.
