Internet Marketing Competition Update

Today’s webinar is an update for the Internet Marketing Competition. We are in week 6 of the Learn and Earn For A Few Dollars More competition.

There are more points up for grabs and a few clues for next week.

Internet Marketing Update

This recording wasn’t going to be ready for another few days, so enjoy the fact that it is early. Originally it was going to be secret squirrel stuff for the ones that attended – but now the Squirrel’s out of the bag!

There was a special mention in the webinar to Sir Don of the Great White Northern Land for his stellar effort in affiliate marketing over the past week. Check out his site: Between Keyboard And Chair.

See you back here very soon.

  1. Thanks for this webinar which I fortunately was able to attend live. The updates and reminders were/are very valuable.

    I have just been wondering while getting through my first cup of tea this morning what in the world I am going to be able to do with my time when this competition finishes.

    I may have to resort to working on my website(s). Oh well, at least there is that looming in the background and I am looking forward to getting into more work heading toward fame for you and wealth for me.

    Thanks again.

    • Hi Dobbs
      There is another webinar coming up: For A Few Weeks More
      No prizes for guessing what that will be about but it might entertain you all for “a few weeks more”.
      I need to ween all my little internet marketing vegemites off the competition as “cold turkey” may not be so nice πŸ˜‰
      By the way. Say thanks to Olympus II for sharing a ‘thought’ for my pooch (facebook comment)

      • Sean

        I agree about cold turkey. The only time I managed it successfully was when I stopped smoking after 35 years. That was a long time and ago and I still haven’t returned even for a single puff.

        I don’t know that I could successfully stop all this writing, reading, reviewing, listening, laughing and making volumes of mistakes all at once – so- I am certainly one who is grateful to you for your kindness and consideration of the fragile nature that you have nurtured with this competition. I still have two fingers without bandages so I probably will last.

        Thanks again.

  2. Thank you for the kind mention and the link to Between Keyboard and Chair in the Internet Marketing Competition Update , Sean. I was quite surprised at the mentions during the Webinar last night (this morning πŸ™‚ ) as well.

    When I wrote the article I was trying to utilise the knowledge I’ve gleaned from your writings over the past couple years I’ve been dropping by your blogs. Hopefully, some of what I’ve read has stuck to me.

    And of course, I always consider begging and pleading to be a valid marketing technique. How do you think I got SWMBO to agree to me buying a new guitar. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Don,

      it’s great to see that you put your learning straight into action. And now you are proof that it really works, not bad πŸ™‚

      I guess by participating in this internet marketing competition we all have learned a fair bit.
      .-= Renee´s last blog ..Self Improvement Books – What Are Your Favourites =-.

      • Hi Renee,
        I even surprised myself. I hope I didn’t mess up your hair when I went roaring by. I wasn’t steering, just hanging on for dear life. πŸ™‚

        I’m not sure which technique I used provided the best return. I used, email, Plurk , Twitter, Identica and Facebook. I know I got some signups as a result of the email and Plurk. Don’t know how effective the others were. That’s the type of thing I’ll have to test after the fun of the competition is over.
        .-= Don White´s last blog ..With A Little Help From My Friends =-.

        • You have definitely done well and with the speed you passed by there was some wind blowing. It looks like you had it well under control πŸ˜‰

          With email, do you have a big list already or at this point mainly friends/family? I guess to find out where they came from you need to give each of them a different link or so, that should show where the most clicks come from, but it won’t show how actually subscribed …

  3. Thank you Sean for getting this webinar up so quickly and am extremely grateful you put it up. I would have hated to miss out on points, as I’m barely hanging in on the Top 10. lol
    .-= Jackie Stenhouse´s last blog ..Types of Child Anxiety Disorder =-.

    • Jackie

      Yes Sean is very considerate even for those in the top 10. However, I thought I would just drop you a note and warn you that you are in danger because I am on the prowl.

      But on a positive note, I am sure you won’t mind coming second. I will make sure to include you in the party I will throw :).

      Seriously this whole competition is such fun, isn’t it. Not only fun but I all of a sudden realize that I have actually learned something. When it is all over I will try to figure out what that something was/is!

      Enjoy and we’ll meet at the top.

      • I have to agree with you Frank about the fun. I originally joined the competition to meet a few new people (I’ve made some great friends on the ‘net over the years) and to have some fun. I’m amazed at the knowledge I’ve gleaned from Sean’s writings on Internet Marketing, the Stock Market and Property Investment. He is an great dispenser of knowledge. Once this is over it’s going to take awhile to sort out all the information.
        .-= Don White´s last blog ..Psycho! =-.

        • Likewise – I agree! It has been and still is fun to be in this comp. Sean keeps throwing something in from left field to keep everything humming along – e.g The YouTube webinar!

          But as you say Don, the learning opportunites have been invaluable. I have so many notes, it will take ages to sort them out and then implement. Though I must say, part of that has started as I have finally made some sense about how to use my YouTube account.

        • Yes Don I agree

          I have 60 pages of notes most in arial font 10 to sort through one fine day.

          It has been a gruelling comp but also very educational. I will be able to access my notes now everytime I need to revisit an article to use the information.

          I have the Yotacademy Homestudy program too which has lot’s and lot’s of information…..information is everywhere, soon time to take massive action.
          .-= Elly´s last blog .. =-.

      • I take it Frank that you are not referring to your pooch being on the prowl? He looks distincly not interested! LOL
        It is a bit of a bugger when all of a sudden you realise that while you are having fun you are learning at the same time LOL
        The cat is watching you

        • whoops Dobbs I mean!

          • Peter and Don

            It is perfectly okay to call me Frank even though my first name is Dobbs. I have suffered with this confusion all my life. My mother meant well, but was a bit weird giving me the name of Dobbs when my surnname of Franks makes it look like I get it wrong.

            As long as you talk/type to me I will be happy and you may call me anything you like. If you go too far, mind you, I may see you in court. But as they say even though you put it in the hands of your lawyer it doesn’t mean it will stand up in court :).

            We are having fun learning and I look forward the the results of all this activity being an income for life.

            See you all over the place I am sure.

        • I’ve seen the little glint in Olympus’ eye. Wouldn’t think he’s a pooch you could write off in this internet marketing competition.

          If he gets on the prowl, pusstat might need to be afraid … very afraid. Although pusstat might have time to update his plan of attack after reviewing the video above.

      • Willem Broekers says:

        Yeah Dobbs, Franks……..none of you come even close to what Sean and the competition has done for me!!!!

  4. Rose Kawe says:

    Thanks Sean,

    Great webinar on the Internet Marketing Competition update yesterday. Just finished hearing the recording to catch up on first 15 minutes. Thanks for getting this recording ready and out in a flash.

    Congratulations to Sir Don and Dobbs for the special mentions here and to everyone on the top 10. I will now go to your YouTube channel, pick 3 of your videos and do as you said.


  5. Cathy Howitt says:


    Even though I was on the live Interent Marketing Competition update webinar, I am still glad you posted this so quickly for all of those who couldn’t get to it at that designated time. Whilst this is a competition, it is still fun and still about learning and that’s what the focus is (with a few tanatlising incentives along the way).
    Thank you for keeping this so enjoyable.

  6. Hi Sean,

    as usual you are faster than lightning and the webinar on this famous internet marketing competition is already up there.
    Thanks for some great reminders on good commenting, as we are creating a habit that we will (hopefully) keep and continue once this competition is over. And I am very curious how you will “ween of” all this little vegimites πŸ™‚

  7. Willem Broekers says:

    On behalf of everyone who couldn’t get to see the webinar, thank you Sean!!
    After watching the webinar I was in two minds about keeping secrets, you have made up my mind for me Sean, thank you!

  8. Hi Sean,
    Thank you for getting the recording up so quickly, this internet marketing competition is just the best I have been learning so much more.

    The Webiner as always was great and My Oh My did I get a surprise when I looked at the rankings.

  9. Thank you Sean for putting the webinar up, it sounds like you could have swayed either way, so I appreciate that. It is not the JOB that inhibited me but two small children with croup, ear infections, then vomiting and then virus – just starting to see the sun rise again.
    Enjoyed the update, as it actually reminded me how much I have learnt in six weeks. And really looking forward to the last few weeks.

    Thanks Sean,

    Loved the videos on YouTube. All done as you said and shared them all on my facebook home page as all of my friends are in there.

    Love sharing everything to my friends!


  11. Clem and Erika schollum says:

    oh thanks so much for putting this up- now looking forward to another webinar on the next tool for interenet marketing- this comp has been so so informative- we are learning so much and thanks for getting the points up so fast and not keeping it secret! yay! (and yay Don- so amazing!)

  12. I’m just about to catch up on the For A Few Dollars More Update webinar, after the computer messing me around a bit – looking forward to it & the next week, or two, or three, or?….. πŸ˜‰

  13. Thank you again for making this recording available. I feel pretty bummed out that the 50 points were only awarded to those on the live session as I have been commenting and liking your youtube video’s all along. Ahhh well… At this point it’s more a of learning experience for me and I’m earning a larger Twitter following as well as the confidence to go into affiliate marketing.

    People are doing amazingly well with your Internet Marketing Competition and I think it’ll be great to get everyone’s update in a years time.

    • If you have done it already before – maybe you were even ahead of every body else? You never know – I remember Sean saying something about “you might do something for points even before you know that you will get points” …
      .-= Renee´s last blog ..Self Improvement Books – What Are Your Favourites =-.

      • Yes, certainly make a point of submitting them Sarah – can’t hurt and who knows – perhaps presience may be rewarded!

      • This is what I was referring to in a comment (on the YouTube post?) and you may do things that you you will get points for without even knowing it. I was thinking it was about YouTube but maybe it was a general comment.

        So long as we work well like good little vegemites thinking outside the square and keep updated in this internet marketing competition then there’s a good chance of capturing some bonus points.

        • Most definitely. I’ve learned so much from this internet marketing competition already and have already gone beyond this competition. I am subscribed to a Website Magazine and have decided to being reading it and putting it into action.

          I’ve upgraded and added things on my site and have gained a lot more traffic since being here. The competition is only the beginning and whether or not I am rewarded with bonuses from Sean I am rewarding myself with a new sense of drive, commitment and an entirely new outlook on what I can handle.
          .-= Sarah Butland´s last blog ..Internet Marketing at it’s Finest =-.

          • You have certainly been updating while you’ve been upgrading. Having a sense of purpose and direction will also duel you drive and commitment.

            I’ve found plenty in this internet marketing competition myself and have found my passion has intensified in a number of areas.

      • I hope so. I remember that aspect of the competition too and hoping to be rewarded for my hard work πŸ™‚ Oh, wait – I already have been as I’ve met all of you.
        .-= Sarah Butland´s last blog ..Internet Marketing at it’s Finest =-.

  14. Thanks again for the opportunity Sean. I attended the live webinar and believe I followed the gain points instructions. I enjoyed the YouTube videos so much I emailed a couple to myself and also put them on my facebook page.
    Inspirational! πŸ™‚

  15. Thanks for the update on the competition Sean. You have certainly built up a nice collection of YouTube videos. No doubt the competitions competition is going to heat up as we approach the finish line. Those top 10 spots are anyones.

  16. Sean, I wasn’t able to attend the webinar due to work committments so I really appreciate you making it available.

    Congratulations to Don for putting what he’s learnt from the Internet Marketing Competition and being willing to get up so early to listen.

  19. Hi Sean,
    I’m looking forward to what is probably the last webinar for the Learn And Earn Competition. A winner will be announced. I think I know the two who will be in the closest running for first prize.

    Good luck Jazz and Don.
