  1. Whoever gets this is going to get an incredible deal. What an amazing opportunity!

    1. Certainly all big guns under one roof.

      Can be better than this.

    2. d3so says:

      I wonder how much will go for, then you can determine if it’s worth it or not.

      1. PPC Ian says:

        I’m guessing it’s going to be expensive! Whoever wins will want to come with all their questions written down and a clear agenda so they don’t forget anything!

      2. Looks like it’ stuck at around $500. I doubt it reaches much higher than that.

        That’s still a lot of money raised for charity though!

        1. PPC Ian says:

          That’s awesome! At $500 I’d go for it, although not going to be at ASW.

  2. Harshad says:

    Great opportunity for someone to be with the bests in the industry. There is no doubt that the winner would be spending some high amount here.

    1. But this one is all worthy … lets see who is going to win.

      Harshad … are you going to try ?

      1. Harshad says:

        I am not going to ASW11. I have had the pleasure of being with John at Affiliate Summit East 2010 and might get to meet him again in August at ASE11.

        Here, the money raised is for a good cause and that’s a lot more worthy than meeting all these top people.

      2. Abhik says:

        Are you gonna bid?

    2. d3so says:

      Hmmm I wonder if it’s going to reach the thousands.

  3. Boy this team have everyone from hardcore businessman to successful theme creator as well.

    Would love to spend time with them.

    1. d3so says:

      Yeah, there are notable names on that list.
      I wonder how much exposure the winner will get.

      1. I really only know Shoemoney and John. I’m looking at the others now, maybe I’ll learn something!

        I do know that there are a couple of cuties on that list, lol!

  4. Abhik says:

    lol!! every big names out there is present in that list.
    I wish I could be there..

  5. fas says:

    awesome chance to prove ur metal

  6. My initial thought was “Wow, what a great opportunity!” .. but in the end it would be just a lunch. I would have so many questions that I would barely be able to put food in my mouth. Make it a few lunches and then we can talk 😛

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I wonder how long the lunch is? I do agree it would be really critical to keep an eye on time and make sure to get all of your questions answered.

  7. That’s an pretty good line up folks…but the meal is on you John..

    “Black Seo Guy “Signing Off”

  8. This is a great opportunity but I can’t bid !

    1. I doubt any of us can, really!

      They should make another position in the lunch a raffle or something. I’m sure someone with no money would learn a lot more from them than someone that has the money to win the bid.

  9. Wow, what a great opportunity! Why do I imagine that out of everyone of these people, John would probably be the funniest to hang out with?? lol

  10. Mark Johnson says:

    This is a great business opportunity. You can only find great information like this on a great website or a blog like this. Thank you, John Cow Dot Com.

  11. I’m glad you guys are using this thing for a positive cause. Well done guys!

  12. PPC Ian says:

    Wow! What an amazingly distinguished group of people. This has got to be the best lunch ever!

    1. Yeah that would be the best lunch ever if we can attend the same.

  13. These guys are making some example to donate their buddies problems and that’s why it should be a real success at the end.

  14. Harshad says:

    Bid closed at $1025…. impressive!
