The Little Website That Could Or How To Turn Your Little Caboose Into A Cash-Hauling Freight Train! 2019 Edition (PDF Format)

Did you ever just get sick of buying one program after another that promises to teach you EVERYTHING about getting rich on the Internet? 
Yeah, did I. For 8 long years, I searched and studied and tried to find that magic formula.  I bought every program and book I could possibly afford. 

It was so frustrating and disheartening. 
Then, I realized one day that I had discovered it. After lots of struggle and trial and error, I finally had a successful e-commerce store. 
Then another, and another.  It was something that became easy to duplicate with each store I created, once I had learned the formula.  
It's not complicated, but there is a lot to know about selling on the Internet. You have to know how it all works and what sells.  
If not, you'll just flop around like a fish out of water.  
You'll be a one-armed man rowing a boat in circles. 
Once you figure it out, you'll be amazed at how simple it really is. 

After I figured it out myself, I wrote a book about it. It sold a lot of copies in 2000. My readers went on to become millionaires - some of them. I did radio interviews about it and tried to teach it to everyone I possibly could back then. I knew what it felt like to buy information about Internet marketing and find out the information was useless. 

Why did I write this book in the first place? I like to see people succeed. It's the one thing I enjoy more than anything else. So, it makes sense that I'm back in the game of helping others. 

Then 9/11 happened. The dotcom crash happened. I decided to run away to Alaska because like a lot of people, I had a sort of breakdown after the Twin Towers collapsed.  I stayed there for a decade. I created even more e-commerce stores that were very successful.

In 2011 I decided to return to the Lower 48 states and find a home. I settled here near Charleston, South Carolina. 

After some surgeries and health issues, I finally decided to update my book. 17 years later, that book is even better than the first one. I'm anxious to share it with the world again, because it changed a lot of people's lives. You'll see their testimonials in a little bit, but first I want to tell you about a couple of my readers.

First there's Chris. After reading my book, he went on to become a millionaire and expert in the field of drop-shipping. He's still THE go-to expert in the field. He's been developing an amazing drop-shipping directory and teaching others for over 23 years. 

That's Chris, right there. He's still at it.

Another reader's name was Ned. Ned was at his wit's end. He couldn't take another day of it. He had tried everything. It just so happens Ned had been an expert at something he'd never thought about. He had been collecting Old Time Radio shows his whole life. 

See, Ned had something he realized was valuable. He had the knowledge and the product people wanted. Ned read my book during one of his darkest hours, and it inspired him so much he went on to become extremely wealthy doing exactly what he loved. 

He created a membership website that allowed people to listen and download his collection. He pulled himself up out of a severe depression and feeling of hopelessness. 

Did my book have anything to do with that? Some, but I give Ned all the credit because he saw something he hadn't seen before. He saw his value and how he could make money with it. He was also willing to show up and do the work. 

Ok, so what? (you're probably thinking) What could this book do for you? It's not the kind of book anyone else has written. It's not a book about just one method of making money on the Internet. It's a book about many different elements of selling on the Internet. 

I never paid for advertising, and you don't really have to, either. 

So what kind of book is it? 
  • It's a book that gives you hundreds of ideas and ways to create an e-commerce business that makes money
  • It's a motivational book
  • It's a theory book. It explains what selling on the Internet means exactly
  • It shows you how to get started, even if you don't have a lot of money to start with 
  • You'll feel inspired and fired up after reading this book
How did I end up writing this book?
Well - years ago, I found a book in the desk drawer of a man who had retired. I don't know exactly why he left it behind because it ended up being the most valuable thing I've ever owned. It was 1985, and I was at my wit's end. Broke, scared, tired. This book was dated 1967, and when I read it my life changed. 

After I read that book over and over again, I decided I wanted to write one very much like it that would help people. It took years, but the book became a success. It helped thousands of people to create their own online stores, ebooks, and email lists. 

It became not only a motivational book, but it was the very first time anyone had talked about something I called "The Triangle Method" of promoting yourself on the Internet.

After that, thousands of people have used a similar version of this method to get traffic and make sales online. They may not realize they're using the method I wrote about, but they are.

What else will this book do for you? It will most likely drag you out of a slump you're in or it will just spark ideas that will help you figure out where to go from here. 

You'd probably be shocked at how much theory really does matter when you're trying to get started running an online store. It's absolutely critical to get a depth of knowledge you probably won't get too many other places. Because I got to learn from the best like Dan Kinney, Dale Armin Miller, Rick Beneteau and many others, I can teach you that theory. 

It is also pretty important to understand the history of the Internet and how shoppers behave there. They're nothing like people who shop at the mall. They're distracted and have short attention spans. It's important to understand things like that in order to create a great shopping cart. 

What have other readers said about this book? Here's what they said: 

I started reading it this afternoon and really hate to put it down to do anything.  Very good work, and very informative.   Hopefully by tomorrow, I can start promoting your book for you and see if I can sell lots of them for you.  I love the book.

Hi Lynne,
Well, I finally sat down yesterday and read "The Little Website." Wow! It's now got a permanent place in the corner of my desk where I can grab it when I need it--which will be often.
Anyone who is just starting to market on the net should stop whatever they're doing and read this book cover to cover before they go on. It could shorten their learning curve, literally, by months--if not years. Anyone who is already successful should re-read it as a refresher.
I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
I loved your story about "picking them up and putting them down." I could especially relate since I was working as the 10PM sportscaster at the NBC affiliate in San Antonio in 1981 (I don't suspect you had much time to take notice). I also enjoyed looking at your list of life-changing books--some of my favorites were in there too, particularly Think And Grow Rich. The older I get the more I realize how lucky I was to have found that book when I was in my early 20's.
Best wishes, Lynne, and congratulations on a wonderful effort.
George is the founder and CEO of The Academy Of Marketing And Advertising,
The book is everything I thought it would be and more. Thank you so much.

Lynne Schlumpf has done it! The Little Website That Could is The One resource manual for everything you need to know about promoting online. With my new electronic bookstore, I am on the continual hunt for new ways to promote my website. I can stop right here! Lynne has done the leg work for us. Lynne's easy to read manual is so full of ways to promote, where to promote, links that are just a click away, "free stuff," and page after page of great ideas. My only complaint is WHAT DO I DO FIRST!? Peggy Hazelwood, Editor
Lynne would be a marketing guru except she's more like a Coach. Send me in, Coach, I can do it!

I have had the great pleasure to work with Lynne, the author of "The Little Web Site That Could", and I am just delighted after reading her new ebook.  Lynne has done an exceptional job at gathering unbelievable fool proof information.  As marketing director for I can truly tell folks that Lynne knows what she is talking about and goes through great detail to help others succeed with their online business.  I strongly recommend for those that have not had the opportunity to purchase "The Little Website That Could" to do so as soon as you can.  It will certainly be a book to remain on my bookshelf and I know I will frequently use it.  Lynne you've  gone through great lengths to give us all the opportunity be become more successful through your book and I commend you on a job well done.

 Let me ask you a very blunt question:

Have you ever wanted to read something about running your e-commerce store that would give you the foundation you need? The Little Website That Could is a book like that. It isn't like ANY other book out there. Not for the past 17 years. Not since the Internet was made available to the general public. Not really since EVER. 

It's still as useful as it was in 2000, and probably even more so now. It has some additions to it in this 2017 edition that will help you navigate the new world of e-commerce when it comes to social media marketing. It also has a really great secret to getting free publicity for your website that I discovered many years ago. It still works just as well today. I will tell you a little secret: 

It's not as different from the year 2000 as you might think, this Internet marketing thing. What's new is social media, of course and the websites have changed. Many of the methods of getting traffic to your site are exactly the same, though. 

It inspires. It will empower you. It will teach you things you won't learn anywhere else. It is a GAME CHANGER. 

208 pages of  life-changing information. When is YOUR life going to change for the better?

I'm going to tell you a little secret I learned about Internet marketing course materials after reading close to a hundred of them myself: 

If you're trying to learn from someone who has only been doing it for a few years, you're probably not going to get much depth out of what they teach. 

Difference: I've been an e-commerce store owner for almost 23 years. 

If you're trying to take a course taught by someone who seems to be only trying to sell you a course about something they might've done for only a very short time, you're probably not going to get what you were looking for. How do I know? Because I spent years buying and reading every single course and book I could get my hands on. 

MOST OF THEM WERE GARBAGE or just based on passing fads. Things that only worked for a very short time. 

That's why I ended up writing this book after 8, long years. I was tired of trying to learn from other people who didn't know what they were talking about. So (maybe you are thinking) what makes me think I have more to teach than they did? 

Because I started in mail order in 1984. I have been selling either offline or online ever since. 33 years now. 

I've never NOT had a business that either sold through the mail or from a website. I'm one of the few who is doing what I teach. I've walked the walk. I've struggled and learned what it takes. I've had failures, yes. I've had a lot of successes, though. I learned sales and marketing from some of the greats like Joe Sugarman and Jay Conrad Levinson. I was personal friends with George Haylings. These are the greats, and I can teach you what I learned from them.

There's one more reason I felt I needed to rewrite this book: I'm 58 years old. I'm no spring chicken. In the military, they taught us that if we weren't teaching other people to replace us then we've not done our job. I don't want to someday leave this earth and take what I've learned with me. I want to give it to other people like you first. 

There's a natural law in the Universe that says something to the effect that an object at rest stays at rest until you apply an outside force to it. A website is very much like that. You have to work at it. Then one day, the money just starts flowing. Because you kept showing up and putting in the work required.

Maybe you're thinking, "Oh, well this guy on Youtube told me that I can get rich really fast. All I have to do is do what he does." See, there's a problem with that. You're not him, and that kind of success is usually not sustainable. If he was doing so great, why isn't he doing it now instead of trying to sell you a $3,000 course? I get that there are great courses out there, but I've always learned more from just doing. The thing about fast successes is they aren't nearly as sweet as the ones that come slow and stay for a lifetime. If you're busy enough with your store or website, you won't have much time to worry about what other people are doing.
