Tom Antion is an internationally acclaimed expert in Internet Marketing for small business. He is a full time professional speaker who has been featured on major news media worldwide including the Canadian Broadcast Network, The Australian Broadcast Network, Associated Press, The Tokyo Today Show and hundreds of radio, television and print outlets across the United States.
Tom has a very simple “Three Prong Attack” on Internet marketing, which is extremely simple and easy to understand. Tom is no “techie”. All he cares about is where to click to make money and he teaches his students the exact techniques he uses to pull in $75,000.00 to $220,000.00 in a month from his home office. These consistent high profit/low overhead Internet sales have made Tom an Internet Multi Millionaire in a very short period of time.
Since Tom consistently makes large sums of money while sitting in front of his computer this gave him the idea for his infamous “Butt Camp” Seminars where you learn to make more money sitting on your “rear” than going out and working for a living.
