I Attend Online Internet Marketing Conferences

One of the biggest boosts I have gotten in my Internet marketer career happened when I started attending online Internet marketing conferences.  It it something I find myself constantly recommending to other marketers no matter what their experience level is.

I thought I would make a post listing some of my favorite online Internet marketing conferences that I try to attend as often as possible.

These conferences are all free!

These are not sales calls.  I always tell people that in these conferences there is no hype, no bs, and nobody will ever try to sell you anything.  It’s just a good place to network with other marketers and get the help you need from the people who are actually successful in this business.

Participation is totally optional.  If you want to ask questions and get involved in the conversation you will definitely get the most out of the experience.  However, if you would prefer to hang back and just observe what goes on you are more than welcome to do that too.

Affiliate Funnel
When: Every Saturday @ Noon EST
Hosts: William Brandt and Paul Kinder
Where: http://www.hotconference.com/conference,82001688

This was the conference that started it for me.  Affiliate Funnel brings to the table a wide variety of great guest speakers every week from around the industry.  The discussions are usually followed by an open q&a session where participants are free to ask any questions they have.  This is one of the largest weekly conferences I attend with dozens of big name program owners in attendance every week.  After the conference is over is not unusual to find owners offering incredible credit deals on their sites.  You would be amazed at the kind of deals you can find just from attending this one conference every week.  Highly recommended.


TimTech (T3)
When: Every Monday @ 7:00 PM EST
Hosts: Jon Olson, Tim Linden, and Justin Ledvina
Where: http://www.trafficexchangelive.com/room.php

This was formerly the conference to support TE Toolbox but with the recent forming of TimTech this conference is now covering all of their businesses under one umbrella.  This includes TE Toolbox, Sweeva, Adkreator, Click Track Profit, I Love Hits, and StartXchange.  The discussions are not limited to just these programs and often cover things like social networking, personal branding, list building, and starting an online business.


Tezak Traffic Power
When: 1st and 3rd Wednesday @ 6:30 PM EST
Hosts: Tony Tezak
Where: http://www.hotconference.com/conference,ttpchat

This is mostly a conference dedicated to members of Tezak Traffic Power traffic exchange.  You will find lots of great information here about how to get the most out of using free traffic exchanges to promote your sites.  Plenty of prizes are given away to attendees making this a very fun a conference to attend.


SWAT Traffic
When: Every Wednesday @ 8:00 PM EST
Hosts: James Holmes
Where: http://swattraffic.com/seminarroom.html

Another traffic exchange related conference room presented by SWAT Traffic.  Here you will find a wider discussions about the traffic exchange industry as a whole and discover lots of new ways to improve your online business.


Get Referrals Fast
When: Every Thursday @ 8:00 PM EST
Hosts: Mike Paetzold and Jerry Reeder
Where: http://www.hotconference.com/conference,81842117

The Get Referrals Fast conferences are a more structured than some of the others listed above.  These conferences are serious online training classes covering everything from list building, traffic generation, content creation, and all the nitty gritty details of running a successful online business.  This is some of the best online training you will find and the fact that it is given away for free makes this well worth attending every week.


Traffic Exchange Live
When: Every Weekday @ 4:00 PM EST
Hosts: Jon Olson, Tim Linden, and Justin Ledvina
Where: http://www.trafficexchangelive.com

This one is probably my favorite.  It is much less structured than the other conferences.  We often joke that we discuss everything here except business.  That’s not really true because TE Live is really more of a daily 1-hour peek into the lives of some of the more successful online business owners.  You would be surprised how much you can learn about running an online business just from “hanging out” with the people who are doing it.  Highly recommended.

An Interview with… Me!

Happy Friday!

It’s been a wonderful week and I would just like to thank everybody for all the positive comments I have received for my new book Autoresponder Profit  System.  Thank you!

It’s been really amazing watching people actually putting this information into practice.  It feels great every time I see someone new building their list with the tools I make available through the site.

Want to know what’s really crazy?

People are now wanting to interview me!

I actually did an interview last Monday with James Holmes who is host of the “Internet Business Blueprint” podcast show.  I think it went well.

Let me just put the disclaimer out there that I loathe talking on the phone.  I like email or skype where I can take a few moments to compose my thoughts.   This was also my first interview so I was a bit nervous.  Lucky for me James is a professional and he somehow managed to keep me talking for a  full 45 min.

Here’s the archived link if you want to listen:

Don’t ask me if it’s good or not.  I have no idea what I said during those 45 min and I am not interested in going back and listen to myself talk.  So, let me  know if it’s any good.

Also, I believe I am going to be the guest speaker tomorrow morning at the weekly Affiliate Funnel conference.  I assume I will be talking about  autoresponders, list building, and all sorts of good stuff.

If you would like to stop by and heckle me live it starts Saturday at Noon EST and will probably run for about an hour.

Backdoor Access to Get Referrals Fast

Happy Thursday!

Last week I posted about a brand new website that a few of my buddies just launched called “Get Referrals Fast“.

Chances are that you’ve been seeing this site promoted quite a bit since last week.  That’s not surprising when you consider the owners make their livings by making money for other people.

Jerry Reeder is the copywriter traffic exchange owners stand in line to get.

They stand inline to get Jay Hines to do custom programming for them too.

And Mike Paetzold was one of the founders of Affiliate Funnel who has been teaching people how to be successful in this business for years.

And tonight at 8:00 PM; they are going to reveal their little known secrets to explode lists and downlines by using Trojan Horse Marketing Tactics.

This conference is supposed to be only for Get Referrals Fast members; but I found the back door where anybody can attend, even if you are not using the Get Referrals Fast list building and downline building system.

And you also get access to their private blog.

It’s the perfect way to see what all the buzz is about and get insider secrets without having to commit to the program.

You do all that here:

If you are anything like me, then you will be there to get the profit pulling advice these guys dispense like the world is going to end tomorrow.


How to Launch a Membership Site – Part 7

T-minus 1 week to launch!

Launch is set for Monday, June 8th @ Noon EST.

Everything is set and ready to go for my first membership site… and much sooner than expected.

Last week I hired Jay Hines (Quick Tab Change) to do a little custom programming on the site.  I knew that was something I was going to need to do after I finished my product but I was factoring in at least a week for him to get it done.  I spotted Jay in the Affiliate Funnel conference room and told him what I wanted.  20 minutes later it was done!

With the site completed I spent some time last week sending out emails looking for JV partners.  I wasn’t expecting a huge response but I was surprised by how many people didn’t bother to respond at all.  The good news is that I got a few people who I know are going to be able to bring in a huge amount of traffic to the site.  The important thing to remember is that it never hurts to ask.

For the last few days I have been writing emails to put into my autoresponder.  That has taken longer than expected.  It’s been almost a year since I have written an entire email series but I think I have gotten much better at it.  I have essentially written an ecourse on Internet marketing that I will be sharing with the members of my site.  I am pretty excited about it.

If you are not sure how to write autoresponder emails I highly recommend reading Soren’s Internet Marketing Success Formula.  Really good stuff.

With everything being done I am not quite sure what to do for the next week.  I’ll probably write a few more promo emails for the members but otherwise I am ready to go.

Maybe I will get a head start on launching my 2nd membership site.
