Tony Laidig Public Domain Expert Apology

Have you heard of public domain?

I mean, have you heard how you might use material that is in the public domain to make money?

I Tony Laidig the Public Domain Expert and I was really surprised by his email today! First, let me give you some background.

If you are new to internet marketing and making money online then public domain material is one of the easiest ways to get started…. in fact, one of my first products was from public domain material.

Click Here A Public Domain Resource Page ….its old but the material is good!

Here’s the conundrum though….. who do you listen to, who do you learn from…whose stuff should you buy to learn about public domain. In essence, whose the public domain guru?

Click Here for The Public Domain Advantage ….new material!

All I can do is relate my experiences.

I first ran into public domain materials …..maybe 8 or 10 years ago from a guy named David Valleries. I don’t even know if he’s teaching internet marketing anymore. In fact, I believe he got into trading and is currently teaching forex and day trading stuff.

I learned the basics from Dave and even purchased the rights to his complete public domain class…. very good stuff. I wanted others to learn how they could quickly use this material to start making money online.

Discover Public Domain & Research Tips

I stumbled on a few guys selling and teaching public domain materials over the years…. none of it really anything new. You can do a search on the warrior forum and find some wso’s on plubic domain. You’ll learn something from these materials but it’s nothing earth shattering. Nonetheless, I recommend buying everything you can because …..well, just one idea might be the golden egg for you and you’ll never know where you’ll find it!

Then I ran into a fellow named Tony Laidig.

Tony didn’t proclaim himself as a public domain expert. In fact, I must have just found him as he was getting started online. He shared some of the most amazing strategies for using public domain materials. He shared resources… in fact he shared just about everything he knew ….at least I suspect. His material was valuable and reminded me of the old days of when being on someone’s list meant that you received instructional materials, tips and techniques…. not one pitch after another!

Well…. I think Tony probably willing shared his stuff for a good year or two and then some more established internet marketers must have gotten ahold of him and convinced him to stop sharing these things and start charging.

Needless to say, I was disappointed to receive emails from Tony saying … buy my new product….. only 20 available…. use this special link. Yes…Tony Laidig fell into the grievous and greedy pit of the online entrepreneur and making money online because his obvious passion.

Now….although I was disappointed to see this change in character, I can’t say I blame him. Everyone wants to make money online and if you have special knowledge and can capitalize on it…. more power to ya.

Unfortunately for me, my tolerance for internet marketing tactics has gone to zero and Tony started using these tactics with his products. You know what I mean…. last day for this, secret link, dimesales (I hate those), never to be sold again….and on and on.

Regardless of what I consider faux pas on his part…. I would still recommend you get on his list and I would recommend you buy his stuff if you want to learn Public Domain because I honestly this Tony Laidig is the best public domain guy online today.

I recommend his products….at least the ones I’ve purchased. I use affiliate links to make money from products I recommend because I know how good they are.

If you’ve followed any of my blog posts over the years, I really don’t rave about anyone …..with the exception of Jimmy D Brown or a couple of products every year. So… you should consider my support for Tony something you might want to take a look at.

Tony’s knowledge of photoshop and his use of public domain images is simply beyond amazing. He’s got a product called Photo Profit Secrets that is more of a course than a single ebook. I honestly haven’t seen it yet, but I have a couple of his other public domain image related products that are just outstanding.

Easy Money Picture Project …review on Tony’s Book

In fact, I picked up one of his free ebooks on how to digitize images, change them with free photoshop type programs, where to get them turned into posts and make a profit with it….didn’t cost a penny.

Anyway….let me get to the main point of this post.

I’ve tried to establish that Tony Laidig is a public domain expert who has, in my optinion and his, strayed off his intended path of helping people while at the same time trying to make an income for himself.

Today I got any email from Tony that was an aplogy. I was extremely excited to see this change of heart and wanted to share it with anyone who gets a chance to read this post. Here’s the first paragraph of his email:

I want you to know that I appreciate you and the trust
you have put in me to provide quality products and training.
My desire is to provide you with the best content, products
and interaction possible, and so when I see areas that need
to change, I have no problem stepping up to address them.
And that’s why I owe you an apology. There are a lot of
different tactics used these days to motivate people to buy,
from fake screenshots and outright lying to more subtle
strategies, like scarcity and limited-time offers. While
I have never faked screenshots (never use them) or lied
to you, the scarcity approach has been bothering me a lot
lately. If you think about it, it’s stupid to say that
only XX copies of a digital product are available, or
that the first XX people get a special price. I refuse
to play that game any longer, and I’m sorry. My desire
is that your motivation for investing with me be on the
merit of the product, not stupid trickery.

Kudo’s to you Tony.

I will proudly and confidently support you and your products and I wish you the best in your new direction.

To you my reader…check out a couple of Tony’s new courses….. I’m confident that Tony will take good care of you and you’ll be on your way to start making money online using public domain materials.

Civil War Battle Map in Public Domain …..Case Study

I decided to create a case study using public domain images and take you through the process of researching a niche looking for small niches and finding keywords called long tailed keywords. Once we find the niche, then we will research and work on the product to be developed.

You probably already know that I have an interest in Public Domain Maps so lets look for something that has some monthly search volume with little competition from other websites. In this process I’m going to use only 2 tools to start with, Micro Nich Finder and an ebook and public domain images resource guide called The Easy Money Project by Tony Laidig.

I found a site that has some public domain maps, in particular, civil war maps and to dig a little deeper I looked for a Civil War Battle Map!

I basically outline the process and show you the tools to use. However, I can’t stress how thorough The Easy Money Project ebook is….I think its around 200 pages. Tony describes the process of taking a digital image and turning it into a poster. He goes so far as to give you details on paper weight, printing costs, how to interact with the printer along with many other details.

So let’s get started.

Check monthly searches on civil war map ….the below table gives you the results

civil war map 1732
map of civil war 260
civil war battle map 194
map of the civil war 169
map of civil war battles 162
image usa map 1864 including civil war divisionspng 132
civil war battles map 106
american civil war map 88
map of north and south of the civil war 88
image usa map 1864 including civil war divisions.png 81
civil war 1861 1865 map 81
map civil war 74
map of the united states during the civil war 71
spanish civil war map 62
map of the north during the civil war 57
civil war states map 55
map ga civil war 54
map of civil war states 50
us civil war map 46
map of major civil war battles 43
1861 american civil war map 43
russian civil war map 40

I guess you’d agree that it’s a decent size
niche with many long tailed keywords. The key to selling online
with success is picking a suitable niche market and promoting the right
product and/or service to that market. Take a look at the difference between
“civil war map” with 1732 searches a month and “map of civil war” with
260 searches a month.

I use a tool called Micro Niche Finder
to discover long tailed keywords with little competition. Similar tools
will result in different results. I don’t think there is a way to get an
exact amount since each search engine is different, nevertheless, the
concept of digging up fruitful niches utilizing a keyword tool like Micro
Niche Finder is exact.

Micro Niche Finder for Long Tailed Keywords

For instance Micro Niche Finder
reveals to me that ‘civil war map’ is looked for on 33,720 searches every 30 days and
there are at least 50,000 websites containing the exact keyword phrase. Remember
that the number 33,720 contains any phrase which includes the words
“civil” “war” and “map” in any order. Trying to compete with 50,000 websites is
quite a chore…not undoable, but you would genuinely have to understand what
you need to do to find yourself on the front page of google.

A better strategy is to search for a long tailed keyword with a search number of around 200 to 5000 a month for
that phrase and is only found on a low amount of websites….which in a way is relative to the monthly search count. Lower than 10,000 is good, 500 to 2000 is even better and you can find yourself on page one with little effort.

For Example, I used Micro Niche Finder to turn up this term “civil war battle maps
There are 2700 searches a month for that phrase and about 2910 webpages that
are indexed for that term. This means that if I can show up on page one of Google I will get about 3,000 visitors on my salespage each month. If I can convert 2% of those visits that would be 60 sales every 30 days!

Think, there are about 3,000 webpages indexed by the search engines with the long-tailed-keyword “civil war battle maps“.
All you have to do is use some simple seo practices, write some articles, create a
mini-net with free blogs and exercise some social web 2.0 techniques you will be able to get
webpage on the first couple of pages of Google.

Now lets assume, you’ve done the seo,
penned articles, do some social bookmarketing, submit to directories and create a network of blogs with some articles…’s going to involve some time to get placed for the the phrase you are aiming for. It’s time to start putting your product together.

Let’s find a Civil War Battle Map and if you click on that link….you’ll find some civil war maps!

Working with Public Domain ImagesAssuming you’ve decided on a special Map of the Civil War,
let’s create a poster of it. Now you need to
download the civil war map that is most appropiate to your keywords, however, you have to know which
format to use and you need some special applications in order to view the map and
set about working with it. This software won’t cost you anything….but that’s all I’m
going to tell you right now. Tony Laidig, writes in his ebook, “The Easy Money Picture Project
giving specific particulars when it comes to working with public domain images, and by taking the information I have revealed to you above along with
Micro Niche Finder Pro and Tony’s Public Domain Image book you’ll be able to create a top of the line product and begin depositing some public domain money!

I forgot to tell you, if you would like to watch how Micro Niche Finder works, click on the link and you’ll be able to watch a screen caputure video of the software discovering some long tailed keywords…movie is FREE!

Ok, I just given you a niche which is statistically proven, handed you a strategy for finding yourself on page one of
google and told you the perfect tools to use in the complete procedure. Stop messing around! Click those links, get your chard card out and get started. Once you own these tools, you will possess the ability to dig deep into the world of public domain images and in particular you can make a civil war battle map calender or poster!

Shoot….just gave you another project idea :)

How Many Books in The Public Domain

There are so many books in the public domain that nobody knows that answer.

I purchased a book called Public Domain Secrects by a guy named Kneb Knebaih in the Warrior Forum. If that link is still live, you’ll be in luck. If not, I’ll put some type of package together for you the will help you find out how to locate books in the public domain. In fact, I have a book called the Public Domain Advantage, use this discount code “pd50″ (no quotes) and you’ll get even a better deal. Also, you’ll be on my public domain list and I can start sharing some of these Public Domain Secrets with you.

Anyway….here’s the testiomonial post I put up on the warrior forum”

I love public domain since I was first introduced to it about 4 or 5 years ago.

Public Domain is kind of like the ocean…so deep that there are depths that haven’t been explored or even acknowledged. If you know anything about diving then you’re familiar with the “buddy system”, always having someone with you when diving underway for help if needed….well, Kneb is the perfect Public Domain diving buddy!

I’ve managed to get my hands on most of the public domain packages out there, all of which are good and as time progresses a new author or public domain expert pops up on the scene. With the new author comes new information, and sometimes just new ways of looking at old information.

I won’t take anything away from any of the previous and still acknowledged public domain experts, in fact, Kneb acknowledges some of the guys/gals that I’ve read from and learned a ton from.

how to use public domain

I managed to get my hands on Kneb’s package and let everyone know that this is one of the best public domain packages I’ve come across. The main book is over 215 pages…packed with resources for public domain material along with ideas on how to use the material. This is key…because you can get lost in public domain material and just amazed at the amount, and quality of content available……but…how do you make money with it. GET KNEB’s WSO :) You’ll find seed thoughts for your own products and services….invaluable stuff!

I’m telling ya…if you’re into Public Domain, there’s not enough time for me to tell you what you’re gonna get….or miss out on. If you’re a PD lover or just a newbie trying to get started on the internet, grab Kneb’s book and read it. Then read it again.

I haven’t tried to print it, but if I had a disappointment it would be that he used some sort of template that will eat up a ton of ink….but like I said, I haven’t tried to print it yet. This would be a pdf I’d take to Office Max or Stables and have it printed.

I think there are 12 other books, software, and videos that I honestly just glanced at, but all look like they’ll be of help when trying to work with and monetize public domain works.

Anyway, I was sick when I first got this package and wanted to leave a positive comment for anyone intersted, glad I got to do on the second time around :)

And for you doubting Thomas’ I’m not related to Kneb….I don’t even know if Kneb is a guy or girl :)

Thanks for sharing your book with us Kneb, if I keep going I’m gonna sound like your salesman. One more thing…I got one of my kids interested in a project and with your info, we will get a chance to do some father son bonding and hopefully make some cash.

To Your Success


Here’s a hint on what you’ll find. Besides finding books in the public domain you’ll discover public domain art. There are so many possibilites with Public Domain Art you could spend the rest of your life working with public domain art alone. If you’re new to Public Domain, you’ll find the definition of public domain along with how to find it, how to use it and how to make money with it.

Hopefully the warrior link is still live….if not, I’ll try and get a link directly to the product for all you hard core public domain junkies :)

What are you waiting for….locate some public domain books or public domain artwork and start making some money……yep, the book gets you started :)

Public Domain Content and PLR Content

Tony Laidig of is quickly becoming the new King of Public Domain for Internet Marketers! He makes some interesting comments regarding how to use Private Label Rights and Public Domain in his blog post.

PLR material is fantasic for creating and selling products that are current and allow you to add your own name to them. Tony comments on something that’s bothered me for a long time.

Let’s say you buy a PLR book Dog Information Sites and since you have plr rights you can change the title, add your name and add a new salespage with a new book cover… in essence you’ve created a “new looking product” however, with the same content called Dog Information Websites . Now, lets say Internet Marketers ‘A’ buys the first book called ‘Dog Information Sites‘ and is still looking for more information on Dog Info and he finds your book Dog Information Websites….purchases it only to find out it’s the exact same book! That’s not a hypothetical situation because it’s happened to me.

Tony makes some interesting suggestions on how to use Public Domain material to fix the above situation…it’s worth a read, the whole blog is filled with some great material. Using Public Domain material to enhance your plr material is a great way for you to ensure your product will be unique. You can use the public domain material to add into the actual plr book or use the public domain materials as bonus items….. Tony discusses the subject
