If you’ve been in Internet Marketing for some time, you would’ve heard of forum specialist Lee Dodd and his Cruise Line Fans forum. A number of his forums are generating income in the region of $xx,xxx and you can read his story at his “My love of forums” post.
Lee also happens to be doing a promo for his Earners Forum site, targeted at Internet Marketers, with a “Webmaster Inspiration Month” contest. To sweeten the pot, there’s $5,500 worth of prizes at stake, including a iPod Touch, cash prizes and other assorted goodies.
There’s about 7 contests within the competition, each with a distinct winner, so you could submit a blogging-related entry, a forum-related one, affiliate marketing, SEO, or a rags-to-riches one.
Each prize package includes:
- $250 worth of Text Link Ads

The second installment of Jo Han Mok and Matt Bacak’s Internet Millionaire Incubator hits Singapore this Friday.
It’s a 3-day event with some of the top Internet Marketers giving you their strategies and tips to succeed online.
In particular, these 2 guys alone are worth the ticket price:
eBay Specialist Adam Ginsburg and Internet Marketing guru Kirt Christensen
Adam Ginsburg: I travelled to Atlanta, Georgie earlier this year to listen to Adam speak and I’d rank him among the top 3 eBay experts around. He talked about how he’s sold $20 million worth of pianos on eBay and has now moved on to flipping properties (houses and buildings) on eBay.
Additionally he had one of his students who enrolled in his program a year ago, a single mother with 4 kids, talk about how she now generates more than $10,000 a month from her eBay business.
Adam has also appeared in master marketer Dan Kennedy’s programs, together with the likes of Yanik Silver, Bill Glazer and John Carlton.
This is the perfect opportunity to (more…)
I just touched down in Singapore earlier today and although the 14 hour time difference is causing major havoc to my body clock, I figured this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on Affiliate Summit West and the takeaways from having flown 20+ hours around the world to attend.
Thanks to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward who conceptualized Affiliate Summit and have been grown it from strength-to-strength at about 200 participants in the first AS in 2003 till more than 2,000 at the recently concluded ASW.
It was a great opportunity to meet up face-to-face with a number of the online marketers I’d been reading and talking with over the past few months like ShoeMoney, Scott Jangro, Kris Jones, PlanetAndrea, Jon Fisher from WickedFire and Joe Whyte.
Becky “Webmoxy” Ryan was a friendly and intelligent person to talk to (even though I was deep in thought and seemed to have unintentionally ignored her when she called out a few times).

Since it’s launch, Elite Retreat has evoked a firestorm of debate among online marketers.
Attendees from the first ER paid $4,500 per head to attend the exclusive event.
The upcoming second ER to be held on 19 and 20th March in San Francisco is raising some hackles with its $4,950 price tag.
I’ve often heard the question on the forums and a number of Internet Marketers have been asking me this question:
Is it too much?
And often I hear the gripe that (more…)
I’ll be putting up the content from Affiliate Summit West over the next couple of days, but here’s the most important lesson I picked up from the affiliate managers and super affiliates I’ve been talking to.
You don’t already need more content than what you’ve already seen on their blogs and forums, but here’s the difference that makes a difference.
The major obstacle and stumbling block for 99% of online marketers is your mindset.
And it’s not something you can rationalize, but rather an emotional reponse.
Sure, all of us can think we theoretically earn a million dollars a month, but the question is whether you feel you have the ability and are motivated to achieve it.
Jeremy Schoemaker (Shoemoney), Andrew Wee, Jon F (WickedFire)
If you have no expectations about your online earning potential, you’d likely be happy with earning $1.
But from there, whether you hit the $10/day, $100, $1,000 or $10,000 level all depends on the ‘glass ceiling’ you’ve set for yourself.
Internet Marketing is truly a mind game.
Because once you’d set your mind in motion, you will go all out to find the strategies to reach the next level.
Here’s my personal beliefs that will help you reach the next level:
Things never stay the same. Expect change. And deal with it. Whatever doesn’t stop you will only create a barrier of entry for other.
- Problem-centered or Solution-centered
Are you someone who’s apt to complain or get stressed when a problem arises.
If you shift to a solution-oriented approach when something happens and you’re able to deal with it sooner than the others, you’d have a headstart on your competitors.
The first step is to take action, the second is to test everything. Never take anything for granted and you could see increases of 10-20% in your results.
The most important attribute, however, is persistence. If you work at something long enough, you might not get the same results you’re aiming for, but you’d be pretty close.
It’s about 16 hours before I head off on my long flight to Affiliate Summit West.
I’ve been talking to the WickedFire folks and we’re psyched about meeting up.
I’ve planned out my itinery and will likely be spending more time networking and attending sessions, compared to drinking and clubbing.
There are a number of networking parties including one hosted by oneNetworkDirect and Wynn Las Vegas at Wynns’ TRYST nightclub which features a private lagoon. If there’s one phobia I have, it’s dancing in public.
We’ll see how this pans out.
Besides visiting the exhibit halls, I’m planning to (more…)
