My Vancouver Internet Marketers Meetup Presentation

For those who couldn’t make it, here is a video from my presentation from last Tuesday’s Vancouver Internet Marketers Meetup at J Lounge. The video is 1 hour and 20 minutes long and includes the Q&A. I recommend you find a comfortable chair and get some popcorn.

My presentation went over the 8 ways to make money online presentation I made at Freelance Camp but I really only concentrated on one particular way: launching your own product. The meetup was a complete sell out with 100 people attending and judging by some of the comments left at the site, it was a complete success.

β€œ The info John provided blew my mind. I now know why what I’ve done in the past had failed, and what I can do to make it work. ”

β€œ Thanks, John, for sharing so much information. It was invaluable and worth adding my name to your list πŸ™‚ ”

β€œ Thank you Josh, for organizing such a great meet-up. John was a great speaker. He was amusing but at the same time very honest and to the point. ”

β€œ I had a great time at John Chow’s presentation. As someone who’s read almost everything out there on Internet Marketing, I actually picked up some great tips. I’ll be sharing some of them on my blog. Let’s hear more from John… I’m sure he could give another excellent presentation on the “8 Ways to Make Money Online.”

Finding a place to host the video proved to be extremely difficult. YouTube allowed files up to 2GB but limited the video to 10 minutes in length unless you’re a YouTube content partner, which I’m not. Vimeo doesn’t have a time limit but set the upload limit to 500MB unless you have a premium account, which I no longer have. Other video sharing services either had too little space or too little time. In the end, I decided to host the video on my Amazon S3 account. Enjoy!

        1. Salesfist says:

          Informative video. I would have liked to be there in person.

      2. I agree too and I’m glad that you enumerated the difficulties in finding a place where to host the video. That will save me time when looking for place to host my videos.

        I just played a part of the video and it definitely is of great value. I’ll watch the rest of it later today.

        Thanks for putting it up for all to see. I did try to watch it live but there were some technical difficulties with it at least on my side. Having it on your blog is the best solution for everyone.


      3. yeah me too man i am so excited about it

  2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Great! I’m going to check out later on as I’m in the office right now, I would want to see which 8 ways that you shared to make money online. I will be really enjoy watching it. πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes you can not see such long video while you are in office. For that you should keep extra time … may be in evening.

  3. Warren says:

    Thanks for recording this John, it would have been nice to be able to attend. PS. Had a blast when I was out there, wish I could have spent more time looking around though. I have to say Vancouver is pretty cool. Took a drive down Marine drive, some pretty nice houses! πŸ™‚

    1. yeah really nice, u actually just read my mind of what i was thinking

  4. Addy Kho says:

    will be eye opening I am sure

    1. yeah absolutely an eye opener

  5. Kurtis says:

    Thanks John for putting out more information to help the rest of us create our own rags to riches stories.

  6. d3so says:

    I’m downloading it to my iPhone right now. It’s an flv file that’s only about 300 mb. Flash doesn’t play well on the iPhone :/

    1. Do you have the new iPhone?

      1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        What do you mean new iPhone? Iphone4? Iphone 4 is on the way, going to launch soon. πŸ˜€ I’m hoping to own one when it launches.

        1. d3so says:

          The iPhone 4 was released today in the US.
          I’m running the 3GS on the Tmobile network. Waiting for the bugs, hacks, jailbreak, & unlock to come out before I get the iPhone 4.

          1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

            US is selling iphone4 in cheap price but not in my country, with that price in my country, I could buy 4 iphone in US, it’s truth. I’m hoping to own iphone4 too, but the price is just killing me.

          2. d3so says:

            How much does it cost in our country & where are you from?

          3. TasarΔ±m says:

            I’ve heard the same, that the Iphone costs much more in other countries. I hope it won’t cost waaay too much than it should :/

          4. its about $350 in my country

          5. Interesting to see that iPhone 4 is having some issues …

  7. Exposed SEO says:

    gonna watch this on the train. the only problem i have with launching your own product is that in a lot of niches it’s not realistic or feasible to create a digital product to sell.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Watching on the train sounds like a great idea!

      1. Indeed it is. I love trains and the fact that one can in comfort read, watch videos or work on the computer while moving from point A to point B.


        1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

          That sounds like a great idea! Between, the train will not be noisy?


          1. Train of every country is not so comfortable plus connectivity is also an issue in many countries.

  8. Earl says:

    …but if it’s not on vimeo or YouTube, then how am I supposed to watch it on my iPad?

    1. By clicking on “play” here on the blog post? I don’t see what the problem is? SY

    2. I think he was being sarcastic!

      (As you may know that the Ipad does not support flash, while vimeo and youtube use flash).

  9. Thanks for sharing John!

    Hope to watch the entire presentation!


  10. Vincent Woon says:

    Great Info! Thanks for posting the presentation …Just learned more from your trick and tips section.:-)

    1. We always get great information from John. There is no doubt about this.

  11. Irma says:

    Thanks a lot John – it was awesome!

    1. yeah it was actually awesome

  12. Dan Mihaliak says:

    Of course the top moneymaker takes up the most time and makes you work the hardest. But thats the way life goes.

  13. thanks john your posts are very educative hope to see the next one

    1. Yes this is the speciality of John blog.

      Learning experience and good food as well.

  14. Looks like an awesome opportunity to present your ideas and thoughts. How many of these do you do each year?

    1. yeah looks very much like it. thanks john

  15. Thanks so much John for sharing the video, and as well taking the time to find a way to publish it.

  16. It was long, but a decent listen. Next time, you should do it as a podcast.

    I didn’t realize that Jeremy cheated in the RSS competition. How devious. I thought you were supposed to be the evil one?

    1. d3so says:

      lol, All marketers are evil, all marketers are liars.
      It is a sad truth.

    2. d3so says:

      I actually just finished watching the whole thing.
      The email trick is also useful for optin in to multiple email subscriptions. You can catch people who sell your email.

  17. Addy Kho says:

    John, if I read it correctly, the title of your video when the video start screening is Product LUNCH, not Product ‘Launch’

  18. Fez says:

    I have been reading your blog since long but as you said in the video, I think I need to stop being a “Duck Liner”. So I am going to start working to launch my own blog today.
    A Question.. As you said that one cannot do it alone, What kind of people do you need to team up with? Can you share the composition of your (I would say) winning team?
    Thanks for a very informative and a great video.

    1. d3so says:

      I too am a duck liner πŸ˜›

      It depends on what your goal is, then you need to find like minded individuals who share the same goals as you. You can find people on forums.
      But if you’re looking for people to help you on setting up your blog or help write a product for you, you need to outsource. oDesk is a good place or you can resort to forums as well.

  19. maria says:

    thanks John,your video is awesome,and very educational

  20. Soares says:

    Fantastic John,

    its really sad for me, Its very far from where i live or i would be there for shure.


  21. i must agree john that there are some powerful tips on that videoo thnks

  22. Thanks for sharing your presentation John. That’s a long one!

    Interesting that it’s difficult to find a place to share long videos like that.

    1. d3so says:

      Not really, I think it couldve been hosted on the blog server if the bandwidth provided is unlimited. Otherwise, amazon would be a good alternative. The video was only about 300 mb.

  23. How can I miss this important post.

    But 72 minutes, boy I have to schedule it for weekends.

  24. S Martin says:

    Great presentation John! Thanks for the tips and tricks. Was looking into the List Machine in and thanks again for introducing it.
