Default Starting a Catering Business Start-up Guide Kit

Is this kit worth the $30? Has anybody used the techniques to start up a successful catering business? Any other recommended reads or DVD's out there?

Ok, I clinked the link and read the first page. I found it interesting that there is no author named or any credentials, no testimonials from "satisfied customers", and a couple of stock photos. Looks like a squeeze page to me.

Did you notice that the "Affiliate Program" page is very detailed. Did you notice the testimonial from freeadvertisingforum dot com? That raised a flag with me.

A quick whois search didn't help much; it's a godaddy site and the owners name isn't listed. Now I'm really curious. I Googled the Berkeley, CA address listed listed on the bottom of the page...

Want to guess where freeadvertisingforum is located? As well as lots of other internet marketing sites that will show you (for a fee) the secrets to amazing wealth from internet and affiliate marketing? There is a name listed, but who knows if it's a real name or a pseudonym...But he seems to have a following in the internet marketing world.

Maybe...the information offered is legitimate. Who knows. But I wouldn't pony up $30 for this particular e-book...

Chris.

Plenty of experts here who are doing it right now that would probably be willing to answer any questions you may have and in the mean time save you some $$$$$ in the process! just my two cents, it was the knowlege I gained from the Brethren that got me started and going in my catering business!

Looks like a generic internet marketing page if you ask me. Someone probably purchased re-sale rights to a generic catering e-book and it now marketing it. Probably isn't anything special.

I agree with Bossman it worked for me. I'm doing 3 Farmers markets a week. The money isnt all that great but it's my first year and my name is getting out there. There is a wealth of info here just for the asking and it's free! ford is a fountain of knowledge and has been catering for years.
