Dot Com Pho – Show Me The Money Book Edition

Today’s Dot Com Pho happened on the same day as my new book, Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul (co-authored with Michael Kwan) goes on sale at and all major book sellers. To celebrate, I used the Pho get together to announced a little iPad contest. Watch the video to find out how you can win one of TWO Apple iPad!

A total of nine people made it to Happy Pho for the meet up, including three first time attendees. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location of the next meet up. In addition to the iPad contest, this week’s Dot Com Pho features the Pho after effect and the iPad app of the week. Enjoy and good luck winning the iPads!

    I’m kind of an angry bird myself right now lol.

    John! Please let me know if you’re still going to send me your book. I’m really looking forward to reading it, reviewing it, and enter the contest. I’ve been trying to contact you but you haven’t been getting back to me 🙁

          2. d3so says:

            I know haha. I’m eager to read it. I don’t think it should take that long to get to me in California, which is also the same time zone in Vancouver.

            I suppose if I don’t receive it this week, I’ll buy it off amazon along with the new problogger book. 😛
            BUT I really do want my autographed copy 😉

          3. I’d also like an autographed copy, so I do understand your persistence in following this matter up. You must be quite hectic with customer service personnel 😉

    I looked in Chapters today and it doesn’t seem like they shelf new product on the weekends. 🙁 Maybe on Monday?

  3. Katana says:

    We had such a great time! Everyone was so friendly- especially the guy who brought the menus- he was pretty excited for us to have the book!

    Thanks for a great lunchtime! 😀

  4. Nigel Chua says:

    John!!! The Pho after was quite….an…interesting…way of showing one’s food… hahaha! I’ll be getting the book too! When does your contest close?

  5. I wrote an interesting post on how giving away iPADs was a good promotional method. Shoemoney did it and got results, many others as well so it was the proper time for you to do it

    Is there any PDF version of your book? I would like to read it

    1. d3so says:

      Did shoe already give out the ipads?????
      I think Johns book will be available for kindle not sure about a PDF version.

      1. no pdf means that I would wait for it to arrive at my mail box. it is such a hassle to wait that long.

        1. d3so says:

          ? When you said PDF I thought you meant ebook :p

          1. d3so says:

            I received my SIGNED copy of the book today!
            Thank you very much John!

          2. can you make a review about the book?

          3. You were looking great in that photo.

            But what kind of chain is that … ??? Its looking heavy and can harm your neck.

  6. Mike G. says:

    I was surprised the Ipad sales sold more than expected from most analyst. Does anyone know of any more contest that gives away Ipad?

    1. Even I need some! Someone please tell me also. I cant buy IPad, but atleast can win it!

    2. i know…they hit the 1 million mark already. That’s kind of crazy!

        The Apple shareholders must be rubbing their hands together. Their latest cash cow is proving to be a tremendous success. Go Apple!

    That looks like a cool game to try. Thanks for recommending it to us. Greg Ellison

    1. d3so says:

      It is a cool game! I bought it for my iPhone after watching this episode. Sadly, it looks way better on the ipad (I wish I had one now 🙁 ). The game does get challenging after awhile.

    The publishing of a book is a good way of telling your readership that you are actually a true honest to goodness author. Nice work John…whitehat all the way.

  18. I just received your email advertisement of your new book. I laughed though it is again an advertisement. It is a smart AD. Good luck.

    Your mealtime get togethers sure do look like a lot of fun, and is a brilliant networking opportunity for people in your local area.

    Are these iPads sponsored by Apple, or do you buy them in yourselves?
