The Design Dashboard

You start with the first icon. You click on it.

You follow the simple, easy steps. Then you go to icon two. Each icon takes 20 minutes or less. Next thing you know, you’ve got a noise-busting web page, sales letter, landing page, affiliate pre-sell page, blog graphic, or mini site.

This year you will either break through the noise, or you and your sites will drown in the sea of sameness. Give the Design Dashboard just 20 minutes a day, and you can stand out like King Kong in a movie theater.

What’s more, you won’t spend a bundle or sweat bullets wading through huge manuals. There’s no Photoshop CS. No Dreamweaver. No huge learning curve. No tidy design fees. No waiting forever for a designer. No wasted fees. No look-a-like designs. No templates that are made to look pretty, not sell. No mucking around with Rentacoder and Elance. Nobody flaking out on you.

It’s called point-and-click web design. And it’s destined to become the latest rage to hit Internet marketing. Why? Because you don’t have to wade through dozens, hundreds or thousands of pages of information or sit through hundreds of hours of video. Instead, you just click the icons and follow the simple, easy steps.

    I’m totally amazed at how simple it is to make my own graphic header using the steps in the Dashboard!

    Marlon, I don’t know if you’ll print this on your web page but I want everyone to know that if a little old grandma (I’m 58 years old) like me with NO computer skills can do it — anyone can!

    Thanks again!

    Marlon, in less than 2 hours I made my first site with the Design Dashboard and just want to say “thanks”…

    If it hadn’t been for the Design Dashboard I’d still be messing around with those free web site templates I downloaded off the ‘net and I’ll tell ya, even though they’re free, they sucked up more hours of my time than I care to count!

    I bought the Design Dashboard and thought is was very good as a tutorial course. I was under the assumption from reading the sales info that it was an all-inclusive program. I have photoshop and can follow many of the topics rather than investing in Elements. What I have been able to design so far is great.

    This was the first product I purchased from Marlon and had a great experience.

    Keep up the good work!

    I’ve bought about 6 or 7 products from Marlon and have enjoyed each one of them. The Info-Product Dashboard is the one that really gave me what I needed at the time I purchased it because I was highly motivated to create a new product that didn’t involve the cost of DVD production.

    I created my first e-book using the Info-Porduct Dashboard and it hasn’t sold real well but just completing my first info product by taking my expertise and putting it into a simple and sale-able format has been invaluable.

    My confidence has soared since completing my first project and I now have three new info products I’m developing.

    Working with Marlon’s customer service has been easy and fast. No complaints and up to par with what I would expect from a high profile business.

    I chose to buy from Marlon because when I heard and read some of his materials he was real about what to expect and the learning curve that I need to go through to get good at being a top info marketer.

    What I enjoy most about the Design Dashboard and the other Dashboard products is the way it’s laid visually and systematically. I can come back right to the icon I finished up with or I can skip it and come back. Also each icon has a short, digestible lesson to learn and I need the step by step learning format to keep me and my creative mind on track and focused.

    I made the mistake of purchasing different products under different email addresses and this cause trouble accessing the products and I was super frustrated about it. I IM’d customer support and Marlon’s staff took care of it in a day and got me back up and running. This made me happy.

    I think the way you can improve on future products is to have a special group conference call for everyone who bought the product where we can ask questions about the product and/or listen to the call to get some possible FAQ’s answered.

    Also, maybe you can hold a call for those who’ve completed a dashboard and have them give their stories about the challenges and triumphs along the way.

    I need all the input and belief building I can get and sometimes others success stories reassure me that there is light at the end of the tunnel and taking that next step is worth it.

    Website is under construction.
    So far I’ve used Design Dashboard to build headers for different pages with outstanding results.
    The bonus you include for building Ebook covers is great and easy to use too. It’s amazing how easy it was to use.
    I bought Design Dashboard because it looked like I could do my own thing at a suprisingly low cost even I didn’t know what I was doing.
    The best part about the above is your support. I contacted them several times via email and also through your live chat and once by phone. The courteous help I received was refreshing. I will definitely use more and recommend your products to all based on this factor alone.
    The many videos you include really simplify every move. They’re very well done.
    I also purchased Push Button Channel from you and I’m looking forward to that too.

    Hey Marlon,

    Just wanted to let you know that I think the Design Dashboard is fantabulous!

    In my opinion, just the training videos on how to use Adobe Elements to create awesome graphics is worth the measly price I paid for this product.

    I bought Design Dashboard as soon as it came out a couple of years ago, and was creating my own graphics within a couple of hours.

    It’s been a great time saver for me… not to mention the thousands of dollars I’ve saved by not having to pay a graphic designer any more!

    Thanks again, Marlon!

    Hello Marlon,
    I bought this product some time ago, like about when it first came out, and I like it.

    I do however have to make this comment. There is no true step-by-step internet marketing instruction. We all know what step by step means, don’t we?

    I mean, step by step is ‘insert tab A into slot B’ type of instruction, and is very detailed and leaves nothing out or to chance. There is no such internet marketing instruction, and this includes Design Dashboard. That kind of instruction on a topic like internet marketing would fill a small encyclopedia.

    Now having said that, Design Dashboard is about as close to a step by step in internet marketing website design as any IM product and more so than most.

    I would also say that most anybody with at least a double digit I.Q. can probably get a lot out of this system if they want to design a website for internet marketing purposes.

    Also, it is well worth the price if you are going to pay for domain and hosting (and most likely other a web host and maybe an autoresponder also) anyways, which are recurring expenses, to pay that again for Design Dashboard, which is a one time expense and then you have a web design system which takes you chronologically through making a site, which most WYSIWYG editors don’t.

    Although you will still most likely use an editor also, Design Dashboard is a good way to see what to do and when.

    The Design Dashboard is one of the most useful,easy to use products I’ve ever purchased. I was so impressed with this one I purchased your Info Product Dashboard and Marketing Dashboard too, and was equally impressed. Outstanding value, great products.

    Anyone sitting on the fence about purchasing any of Marlon’s Dashboards ( or any of Marlon’s products)… stop wasting your time and just grab it. Guaranteed, you will be thrilled with your purchase.

    Marlon, thanks not just for creating the great products, but also for generously sharing your knowledge and passion.

    Marlon–don’t yell at me! Just wait! I have this product and several others of yours. I haven’t started using them yet because I took your advice (and some others) and decided to learn about marketing before I jumped in and made an ass of myself. In the meantime, however, I have been writing a book (based on seven years of using the material in colleges and geting more than 300 testimonials) and other products. The book is in editing and wil be published this summer. I am prepping a blog and main website and mini websites (which I expect to use another of your products for!)
    Sometimes we out here in the wilderness don’t take action fast enough because we are preparing ourselves. I do realize that you can overprepare but I don’t think I’m doing that.
    I’m just telling you this to indicate that people are listening to you and learning even if we are not responding as fast as you (or we)would like!
    Best, Frank Daley

    I’ve just started using this awsome program, and I can say for sure that it’s just that…… awsome! Very point and click and broken down into bite size (20min.) a day sessions. I’ve been trying to figure out this stuff for nearly a year and I just keep getting caught up in the confusing stuff (seems like most of it). Not anymore! I know have the tools to make a website work and I’m looking forward to the outcome. My website is not up and running as of yet, but I know now that it will be in a matter of a month or so, thanks to Marlon.
    I have Cash-Like-Clockwork so I’ve got lots of his products to test out and run with and I’m looking forward to them, even my wife will be using them to make her own website! This will be the true test of the ease of them as she’s an internet newbie at the earliest stage.

    Thanks Marlon, Matt

    Hello, Mr.Sanders.

    I just want to tell you that how wonderful your
    products are. Even though English is not my primary language, I can easily follow. It’s really step by step. That’s what all newbies are looking for!!

    I am picking up the nuts&bolt slowly but surely.

    Thank you so much for your absolutely clear products.

    Where have you been all my life? [Well, the last 3 years, anyway.]I have been bumbling around for those three years on the web, spending all my money and getting nowhere slowly.I was spinning my wheels. Then I stumble upon Designer Dashboard and finally I am able to make headway in my quest to build a website. Thank you so much.

  14. avatar Thomas Anderson on August 17th, 2009

    I have tried several tutorial products and the DashBoard is the best I have seen. If you are a beginner, you cannot go wrong here. Step by Step means exactly that. Take one step at a time and just move ahead when you are ready.

    I am just getting into the program, but I can already tell that it is going to save me weeks of unnecessary work. I have tested other products and Marlon is far better than any other I have experienced. I can’t wait for his next product release!

  17. avatar Jill Craig on August 22nd, 2009

    I have been playing around with online marketing for a couple of years. I have no formal training with marketing or graphic design, or anything in this field. The cost of outsourcing kept my desire of success a distant dream. The lack of knowledge to do it myself and the lack of time/resources to take a class even further discouraged me. HOWEVER, I ran across Dashboard Design and instantly fell in love! At last, I found an effective, easy to follow plan that easily lays out each step. Countless video tutorials were a life saver (as I am a visual learner) and I have to say that I impressed myself with the outcome. I’m still working on my final product, but an actually enjoying the process. Whereas in the past, I absolutely dreaded the training. Thank you for your excellent product and service at an affordable price. It is certainly a win, win for me! Success, here I come!!

  18. avatar Carl Jordan on August 24th, 2009

    Mr. Marlon Sanders- Unbelievable program… outstanding… customer service is superior as well… I have been training under folks like Clayton Makepeace, AWAI, Bob Bly, Alex Mandossian, Dan Kennedy, Bill Glazer, and etc… the list goes on and on… This is the most incredible program available for sale…”EVER”… point and click… isn’t that the truth… when I began reviewing all the goodies, man, this is the viagra of internet marketing… If you don’t have it… As King Solomon might say, you are a fool… Take advantage of Marlon’s program… It won’t let you down! He is on his game… Thanks Marlon! Carl

    Your Design Dashboard is making it easy for me to get everything set up online. I am from Sweden, where internet marketing is not so common, so this is all very new for me. I just want to say that you rock for helping so many people to have the American dream!

    I just like to say so far the course looks great.
    Well put together and very easy to follow.
    Although I am only on the first week, I am enjoying the course so far.
    Thank you

    Design Dashboard is another of Marlon Sander’s phenominal products. Finally a step-by-step system to building a unique web page. Invest just 20 minutes a day (or do more, the choice is yours).

    Marlon’s service after the sale, in the person of Tim, is one of the best and most often overlooked bonuses.

    Thanks guys.

    Hi Marlon,

    i like the step by step videos so far. I wish to make great headers using your product Marlon.

    Have an awesome day!

    I am a firm believer in the KISS method of business. The more simple the tasks are, the better it is for me. The Design Dashboard keeps the tasks very simple. You can call me Stupid if you like but I am Keeping It Simple.

    The Design Dashboard is an amazing product. It is easy to understand and use. I look forward to trying the Product and Marketing Dashboards in the future.

  25. avatar John Brooks on November 2nd, 2009


    I bought the marketign dashboard, design dashboard and sales letter product. I actually bought the other two some time ago and am just now getting back to work – (real estate investing got a little wild for a while!).

    I actually am in the fortunate position of having lots of product/content and have been struggling with finding the right sales sequence, offers, figuring out how to package them, etc.. Your products have been helping me to put jigsaw puzzle together for my January 2010 launch.

    I really appreciate the simplicity and step-by-step approach you take through the dashboards – I do skip around, but they are very easy to use and I can jump to the issue I am focused on at that particular moment. Kudo’s to your support staff – Tim jumped right on an issue I had and took care of it immediately.

    Last year I purchased Photoshop Elements 7.0. Unfortunately, when you purchase that software, you do not purchase directions for use.

    I remembered the name Marlon Sanders from several years back when I was interested in internet marketing.

    I located his site and found the design dashboard. I ordered and was very satisfied. This is my first product purchase from Marlon, but not my last.

    The online chat customer service employees were very helpful. My only issue so far has been that I sent an email to [email protected] inquiring about the “Cash Like Clockwork System,” but have yet to receive a reply. I have no ideas for a product and would like to create my own. My idea of affiliate marketing is having affiliate sell my products. I did receive the half price email and really want to buy the product. But I need some questions answered.

    I like the fact that Marlon’s sales letters have no hype and do not make unreal promises.

    I like the design and easy to use format of the design dashboard. No fluff. Just the facts needed to create the desired results.

    I also like the quick response of your chat operators.

    Thank you.

    Hi Marlon,
    I am glad I found everything tied up together for once. I have been so miserable messing around with all those free and paid tools coming from 100 different places. No wonder one gets lost in translation. BUT after many trial & error, there I found your products. Still on the learning curve, but with CONFIDENCE. Very awesome customer support. You definitely will hear from me again. Kindest regards,

  28. avatar Thea Best on May 10th, 2010

    The Design Dashboard takes all the guesswork out of learning how to perform every step for setting up your own web site. There is no longer any need to fumble around in the dark when you can use the Design Dashboard to guide you through creating your own graphics, fancy headers, and all the the other stuff that would take you too long to learn otherwise.

  29. avatar thomas on June 12th, 2010

    Thanks you Marlon for the opportunity to use the Design Dashboard on the trial basis. I was impressed with the ease of operation and the quality of websites. I appreciate you and all that you make available to those of us building on a budget.

    Hi Bruce,

    That’s why we offer the 30 day trial, it gives people a chance to get their feet wet
    and decide if the program is for them. I have see Photoshop Elements on ebay for
    around $35 which is considerably less than retail.

    Best Wishes,


  32. avatar Marlon Sanders on June 22nd, 2010

    Hi Bruce, there is a 30 day free trial of the program you are referring to.
    I have also seen it on ebay for considerably less than retail.

    Hello Marlon, I am blown away at how simple The Design Dashboard is to follow along and create a great looking website. Everything is covered from designing your own graphics to publishing your website to the web. And it is all step by step. Great product!

    Hello Marlon,

    There are a lot of people that I unsubscribe from,
    but you are not one of them. I have not found anything from you that is not quality content.
    I love design dashboard,it is so easy to follow and I get better headers, websites than I can find anywhere else.

    With a lot of years behind me following Marlon Sanders, I am still very much your fan! Thanks for your great product!

    Hey if I can do it, then the instructions are good enough for anyone to follow. Class A technology is hard all thumbs student here.
    Thanks Marlon, Joan
