15 years ago, you could walk into a meeting with almost ANY idea for a website… and walk away with $15 million in venture capital backing to promote your idea through billboards, TV and radio.
10 years ago, traffic generation meant posting your site to newsgroups, classified ad sites, and free-for-all links. If people didn’t buy on the first click, heck, there was something wrong with them!
7 years ago, before Yahoo acquired Goto.com, you could buy clicks for 1 cent a piece… get #1 listings in Google just by writing quality meta tags… and – gasp – your newsletters and e-mails would actually get delivered AND read, without worrying about content filters or Facebook eating away your audience’s attention.
4 years ago… early AdSense pioneers could make $100/day simply throwing up junk blogs and playing arbitrage against AdWords costs. There were 3 good product launches a year, and less than a handful of ‘household names’ in small business IM. Nowadays, there are 3 new names with 3 new products every week… and the marketing is more aggressive than ever.
Last year, CPA offers and negative billing was the path to a 7 figure income. This year, you’re more likely to get a knock on the door from the FTC!
What’s all this mean?
It means, marketing online changes fast. What worked yesterday, might not work today. If you’re still using promo techniques that are years or even just months out of date… you’re a dinosaur waiting for the next ‘Ice Age’ to wipe you into extinction. Imagine waking up tomorrow and finding that the traffic has dried up, and the sources you’re relying on to supply it, no longer can.
What would you do? How would you adapt?
There’s more money than ever to be made online… but that are also *far* more people competing for the pie. Today’s web is much more open and dynamic than ever. Niches are discovered quicker, search engine algorithms exploited, statistics and keywords analyzed and taken advantage of faster than ever before… and if you’re not plugged into the community of pioneers ready to teach you what’s working for them TODAY… you’re giving away your profits to someone who is.
That’s why, I absolutely recommend visiting a top Internet Marketing seminar *at least* once per year. There’s no better place to keep your finger on the pulse, and learn from the best.
The problem, of course, is that GOOD seminars are EXPENSIVE.
With entry fees of $3K or more… airfare… hotels… dinners and extra curricular networking events… and time away from your office… it’s an easy $5-7K you’re dropping just to be there.
If you can afford it – GREAT. It’s worth every penny, and I’d thoroughly recommend it.
But flying to the other side of the world and dropping precious cash in these uncertain times with no guarantee of an immediate return… is the reason why seminar attendance worldwide is dropping to lower-than-ever levels.
That’s why I absolutely, 100% endorse and recommend the event that Ian del Carmen and Lee Benson are hosting this year.
What they’ve done is put together a group of 15 of the best Internet marketers in the world today… with a combined annual wealth of over $30,000,000… and they’re bringing them DIRECTLY TO YOUR BROWSER!
You can watch their presentations online directly from your computer, without ever leaving your seat.
And because the content is streamed to you over your Internet connection vs. hiring a room at an expensive hotel, they’ve managed to slash the ticket price to a RIDICULOUSLY low level, whilst keeping the content on par with a $3-5K seminar.
With over 15 hours of pure content from the likes of…
