30 Day Challenge Manchester Seminar

The VenueWell this weekend is going to be very busy as first thing Friday morning I will be travelling to The Spinningfields area of Manchester for a 3 day seminar hosted by Ed Dale and The 30 Day Challenge. The seminar is basically titled as “Three Days of Awesome in Europe“.

Usually these large seminars are held in the USA or London if you are lucky. This time I am very lucky as it is being held in Manchester which is literally just down the road from where I live so no need for hotels. So I could not say no and booked my tickets the minute they where released!

The 30 Day Challenge has been taking place for four years now and caters for newbies right up to top end internet marketers. A good person to use as an example is Dan Raine – He is the guy who In 2006 decided to take the Thirty Day Challenge up a notch. He made this bet: make $15,000 in thirty days (with a budget of only $150 bucks!) or wear a pink thong – and only a pink thong – in public.

He Failed. Dan only made $14,364, falling a measly $636 short. Now looking at it the other way this guy made $14,214 clear profit in 30 days. Not bad for a months work? So it is over to Manchester to meet other like minded people. (Not people who wear pink thongs) but people who are serious about the internet and the benefits that successful marketing can bring.


Well what a weekend!To everybody that attended they will agree. One phrase rang true “You kids don’t know how good you have it.” Is very true. If anybody remembers the days before Market Samurai. Keyword research was hard work now thanks to the Nobel Samurai, you can do in a day what took a month. I loved Kenny Goodman’s presentation on the Sunday, Dan Raine’s on the Saturday and Eugene Ware from Market Samurai on the Friday all glued together by a piece of magic from Ed Dale. So here’s to The Immediate Edge and the next 30 day challenge in 2010.

A few mention’s from the weekend to some great people I met over the weekend David Wilkinson, Dominic Goucher, Graham Hunt, Isha, Liz Skelcher, Steve Blompied, Phil Speed,Neil Campbell, Kenny Goodman, Eugene Ware, Dan Raine, and of course Ed Dale

    Hi There,

    This monkeys gone to heaven, yes β€œYou kids don’t know how good you have it.”

    Sorry I didn’t meet you but I was probably too busy puffing fags with Dan Raine in the rain and trying to get as much written down as possible.

    Nice little post thanks, Gareth.

    Thanks Gareth.

    Yes the Pixies and “This mokey has gone to heaven!”- That should have been on a loop when people came in on Sunday.

    The good thing about Twitter is we can all stay in touch from a room full of people. Even Ed Dale has just emailed out a link to people from Manchester Tweeting about the seminar.

    I used to be a 20+ a day man.
