    I am looking for someone withing my tight budget to help me promote a upcoming seminar I am looking to hold on basic SEO/Internet marketing for offline business. This is based off a SEO seminar program. I see it being a huge success if properly marketed. We set up the website, the presentation and materials for the event.

    I have a list of 1st level linked*In contacts that I could invite in the area where we are looking to have it along with some warming lists. I have aweber with a few sales followup emails. I was planning on creating a few youtube videos of a few tips and promte the event sending them to a squeeze page, along with PLR articles i could find and post those on the blog (which i need to set up) and then possible hold a small teleseminar offering a few tips and pitching the event. I plan on charging 997 for it and hope to land at least 20 seats and book some contracts. my lofty goal is 50-100 seats

    any bhw members could help me out to coordinate all this or give some possible helpful suggestions to market this within a month?

    My budget is 200-300 and if necessary i could squeeze 400-500 for marketing. which will include a generation of a nice salesletter. Also, if your tactics are working great, we can also give a cut on each seat sold.

    PM please if you can help and we can discuss more details. Thanks so much
    *Reason i have no post is bc i couldnt log back into my old acct and had to start a new one

    Hey truemarketing123

    I'm new so it looks like my previous post may have gotten lost. I was wondering how your event went and if you were able to find anyone to help you out?

    I kind of fell into the seminar business about a year ago. Been doing very well. First time out earned $10k for a local non profit. Which opened up a lot more opportunities for me with local business owners.

    Who's your market niche? What is your backend? What is the goal of your seminar for yourself? Do you have experience speaking before groups?

    From your description you may be making this more complicated and expensive than it has to be. There are more profitable ways depending upon your market niche. PM me if you would like to discuss.
