I was checking out Shoemoney’s post “Elite Retreat Ticket For One Lucky Winner” .
Blogging Guru Dave Taylor, SEO Specialist Aaron Wall, Forum and Communities Specialist Lee Dodd, Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker, Dave Taylor again!
Forum Guru Lee Dodd has posted at his ForumTrends blog that the 4 gurus: Shoemoney, Dave Taylor, Aaron Wall and Lee have decided to put up one ticket for the event (valued at $4,850 by the way).
Just head over to Lee’s blog, read the instructions and best of luck!
The deadline’s Dec 11th, noon CST. There’s a couple of hours to go.
I’d have loved to try for the contest, though the event clashes with a family holiday.
Ah, well, maybe next time.
If you do enter the contest, and win, post a comment!
Imagine a race where there are 1041 participants and there are two winners.
Would you join in?
Odds sound stacked against you?
What if it costs nothing to participate in and the prizes could be worth million of dollars?
Does that change your mind?
That’s the situation when I took part in Ewen Chia’s Super Affiliate Cloning Program (SACP) challenge. Ewen has been consistently top affiliate for Internet Marketer’s Marlon Sanders, John Reese and Mike Filasamie. He’s the Internet Marketers’ Marketer so to speak.
The SACP would be the ticket to getting the training and tools to become a ‘Super Affiliate’ essentially the top 1% of affiliate marketers. (and the top tier affiliate marketers pull in hundreds of thousands of dollars each month in affiliate income)
I joined in the race to be one of the top two.
Determined to give my all to succeed.
This was my entry: (contains explicit language – scroll past the bold text if it will hurt your eyes):
In the midst of the competition, Ewen set aside a 24 hour period to answer all questions related to affiliate marketing, no-holds barred.
You can check out: Ewen Chia’s questions and answers about affiliate marketing.
It is a useful primer for those new to affiliate marketing and gives tips to enhance your existing efforts.
And midway through the competition, Ewen mentioned there’d be a second phase to the competition and he’d be giving away a third ticket.
Did I go for it?
Here’s my entry (some explicit language again, so scroll through if you are easily offended):
So I had to fend with 154 competitiors for the third ticket.
I waited for the results.
In the meantime, Ewen did an interview with Marlon Sanders which contains lots of information and insight. I’d like to post the URL, but it’s been removed.
The day of the results!
I did not conqueor.
Was I disappointed?
Was I majorly peeved?
But more so, I wanted to know what did the winners have in their entries that helped them win.
More important than merely winning the race, is to understand the methodology and being able to leave with a ‘takeaway‘ rather than leave the table with nothing.
Have I captured Ewen’s 24-hour Q&A about affiliate marketing?
Captured it as a PDF for reference?
That’s money on the table!
There are 2 types of situations we constantly find ourselves in.
Sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose.
I didnt do so well this time.
- I’m aiming to win the Internet Marketing war.
If there’s interest, I will perform an analysis of the winning posts. (so others can win the next battle)
