Come To The SEO ThinkTank 2008 ON ME!

Posted by

Seo ThinkTank 2008

SEO ThinkTank  THE Seo event of the year takes place in San Diego on September 26th, 27th and 28th.   Its a fantastic event filled with no bullshit Internet Marketers and Business Owners who have built successful companies, having a fun time, partying and networking.  Its not your typical conference with 1,000 SEO’s working for agencies bragging about their clients trying to impress each other…   The ThinkTank attendees  are mostly made up of top notch self made entrepreneurs who actually know what works because they do it every… single… day…

Anyway I was talking with DK and we were talking about how much value there is in an event like this.  Its just something you have to experience.

I love to give back and give people this kind of experience.  I feel it can really be a life changing event for the right person….

 SO….  I would like to give one of YOU that experience!   Thats right!  I will pay for YOU to attend.

This contest is pretty sick. Three days hanging out with the crew in San Diego, scoring great food, and free drinks. SureHits is sponsoring MMA training by Shawn Tompkins. Epic Advertising (Azoogle Ads) is throwing an awesome sunset BBQ on the beach on Sunday. SEO Intelligence is sponsoring an amazing online game using and winning real money and also sponsoring a killer Sunday Brunch for everyone. SEM Journal is throwing a pool party and a Mongolian Stir Fry in the park looking over the surf.

Well now, here’s the catch. Most of these guys attending are my friends, and I don’t want to give this prize to someone who is just going to take, take, take all weekend and be a pain.

The whole event is about helping each other, solving problems, make money online and giving tips so we can all be even more successful. It’s for high end guys only, or those on their way there. Invite only by the way.

Write a blog about how you can help the other guests at the Purpose Inc ThinkTank. I know you will learn a ton, and hang out with the biggest names in the business by the beach, playing games, trading secrets and on and on. But what can you offer the other guests? 

So write a blog post about yourself and what you have to offer to the attendees of the 2008 ThinkTank.

Ping me or leave a comment below with the url.  There is no lame link requirements… thats it.  Just tell me why I should shell out $4000.00 to send you to this event.

I’ll pick the winner and announce it here on Friday September 12th.

Here’s what the winner gets.
– A plane ticket from a major airport near you in the continental U.S. to San Diego and back
– Transportation from the San Diego airport to the ThinkTank
– The $2499 entry fee to the ThinkTank.
– A room Fri and Sat night at the Del Mar Motel right on the water (The original hotel sold out).
– Transportation from the ThinkTank to Pacific Beach.
– You also get Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights free hotel, after the ThinkTank at the Surfer Beach Hotel right on the water in Pacific Beach, a cool beach town in San Diego.

A total Value of $4100.

* If you’re under 18 I’ll buy a plane ticket for one of your parents and they have to come along. If you are under 21, you won’t be able to drink.

Best of luck to those who enter!

    I have some ideas :) I will have a post ready.

    Also, whats good with that design contest for ShoemoneyTools… I am still waiting to see if I need to pay or if I got a year free ;)

  2. Reid

    I think this would be probably one of the biggest opportunities to learn something and could change my life… I will be posting this weekend!

    You rock Jeremy!

    Note from the Purpose Inc. Legal Department

    Regarding the online contest mentioned above
    (Not Shoemoneys contest but the contest at the event)
    The attorneys are working out the rules, so it will in no way violate any laws of the United States. The full rules will be posted at in the following weeks.

    $2499 entry fee…

    What?! This event can just suck my stick.

    As for the req. that you must be enlightening and share good info…well, you’re asking your readers – so that’s like asking the student to teach the teacher something.

      1. Lawrence

        Need I say more?

        How the hell is that price justified
        you can read their blogs and what not, and learn the same thing – for free.

  7. Corey Geer

    Well this even sounds killer and I would love to go on about what I could offer other guests but I couldn’t honestly offer much to other successful Guru’s.

    Is this like RJ’s Playboy mansion party?

    Hi Shoe,

    I’m a kickass ghostwriter, and my services would be valuable to all ThinkTank attendees — I can write anything they need, and in huge quantity. I’m also hilarious, smoke huge cigars, and am the best poker player you’ll ever see…


  10. Bryn Youngblut

    Well you never have a chance unless you try so to all the people saying “I have no shot I won’t bother”, how will you ever get better? I will work on a post tonight Jeremy. Good luck everyone.

  11. Zac Johnson

    Awesome contest… I’ll definitely be entering this one. EliteRetreat was amazing and I got to meet so many excellent people there. Glad to see that most of them are attending this event as well! Look forward to my post within a few days.

  12. Jeff -

    What a great idea for a contest. I believe I can offer something very valuable to everyone who will be attending the event (and to anyone with an online business). Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the event. However, I invite everyone to still consider my offer.

    I am a software developer with 12+ years experience in internet / web application development. I have decided to make the big move…I am in the process of transitioning from a full time job to being self employed. I have a strong interest in blogging, web 2.0, an internet marketing. I will be offering my services to Internet Entrepreneurs, who (I know) have a ton of great ideas, and are looking for a developer that can help get them off the ground.

    Please check out my recent blog post about my move to being self employed and what I can offer anyone who attends the Purpose Inc. event, or any of your other readers for that matter.

    I won’t be in on this one, but I’m sure that will be an amazing experience for the winner. Another generous offer, Shoe!

  15. AussieWebmaster

    Very nice contest…. was tempted to throw the hat in but it really should go to someone not really known in the space who can bring an out of the box perspective…. maybe I should have my daughter apply and come along as her chaperone

  16. Paul

    I wouldn’t be able to contribute and significant tips, but would love to go a soak everything in. Looks like if I would like to learn I would have to pay. Good luck to everyone!

    Our attorneys just gave me this official statement about the contest taking place during the Purposeinc ThinkTank.

    “This is to clarify that this will not in any way be a game of chance. Instead Purpose Inc. and SEO Intelligence will be sponsoring a contest with groups of people working together on a project where prizes will be awarded based on value created.” – From The Law office of Brian M. Mahoney

  24. i will come...ONLY if those anime chicks are going to be there

    if those girls arent gonna be there, then I aint coming.

  25. Ranked Hard

    Surprised this was kicked off of Sphinn. I thought they liked off-topic posts based on the hundreds of Happy Birthday posts that have hit the front page. It seemed to be 1 comment by a fellow named Jeeb that caused a hailstorm of madness to surround the post.

    Ok, I’ve made my blog post about what I could contribute to the SEO Think Tank.

    When you read it, please leave me a comment and let me know what your thoughts are.


  28. Dan

    This is one of the coolest things I have seen anyone do. I just wish I had a little more experience and could contribute.

    Timing is not great because my parents can come with me. If it was after October 2nd.. I would’ve considered. Also those days is when I am getting my first set of exams.

  39. My entry to the contest

    I am making multiple entries here, since I do not see a limit. Shoemoney, please choose one to be the winning entry.

    1. I will offer my concierge services to all those in attendance, with a max. limit of 30 minutes per guest, so that I can be spread around evenly amongst the guests

    2. I am a very experienced business owner that has helped multiple companies make millions of dollars online. I can contribute in a standard sense providing insight to both seo and ecommerce. Those that know me will tell you that I can find an answer to most any problem and can show you the difference between what works and what doesn’t.

    3. I can provide a “30-second with Mr. E” platform
    I am ideal for showing the potential strengths and weaknesses in almost any business idea rapidly, or can help the person to ask the right kinds of questions to elicit it from themselves.

    Thanks Shoemoney for the generous invitation.

    This is my post for the event

    I have been reading your blog for a few months now and love it. I really enjoy learning about the latest online ideas about. blogging, SEO, adsense, and all the other interesting topics.

    Here’s my blog post for this event.

    I’m assuming that my service of personal training would be different from most.

    I’m a Fitness Coach with a degree in Exercise & Fitness. I’m national certified with the NSCA as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and have been for over 10 years. I’m an entrepreneur pursuing my dream of helping others get fit and enjoy helping them reach their goals. In my spare time I own and run my own apparel line of motivating phrases.

    The service that I would provide for the group would be, “How to stay fit at the computer”. I do in home personal training and I know how sitting at the computer can be detrimental to your health. Learn to stay healthy and fit.

    I could do mini-workouts, group workouts, how to workout at home, and stretching exercises to help elevate pains in the back, neck, shoulder, and leg.

    I live in San Diego, so no need for airfare or a place to stay.

    I have been blogging for a few years and do it almost everyday. I blog about my personal training world and other fitness topics. I love sharing my passion with other like mined people.

    I would love to learn more about the online potential of personal training. I receive requests on a daily basis and feel this would be great niche for me. This Think Tank sounds like an awesome opportunity and I look forward to attending. Please!

    Thanks again Shoemoney. If you have any suggestions on to reach the blogger who sits on his or her computer for hours that could use some fitness help, please let me know.

    Kevin Moses BS, CSCS

    Why I would be a good addition to the ThinkTank conference:
    (I hope I didn’t get to this to late, as I just found out about ThinkTank today)

    I care about start ups:

    When it comes to startups I care. I co-founded, a startup spotlight site that interviews and brings attention to startups. The whole point of the site is for my co-founder and I to meet and get to know how and why people run startups. I spend 8-10 hours a week currently with no fiscal return. I do it because I love helping start-up founders and I love learning their stories and experiences. Straight up, I love this stuff.

    I have a process background and all businesses need process:

    I currently work at GE Healthcare in an IT Management training program. I am constantly thinking ‘process improvement’. Whether a startup company likes it or not, as they grow they will have to implement processes. I do that every day and I can talk to how and why processes are implemented into a business. I understand, first hand, the pains of being “over processed”, but I also see how that process focus can help a business team operate effectively and profitably.

    I will listen:

    I’m 25 years old and I fully realize that I have A LOT to learn. ThinkTank will be packed with guru’s and I can’t wait to keep my ears and eyes wide open during this event. One of the most valuable assets someone can have, in my opinion, is the ability to listen and it’s something that I focus on all the time. Many people who have a lot of experience think that they don’t need to learn or listen…they are wrong. I will learn a ton, contribute a ton, and add to the overall value of ThinkTank.

    I can’t wait to win! Regardless of the outcome I hope that you guys have a blast at the event and I hope that the attendees take away something of extreme value. Talk to you guys soon!

    Sweet contest! Too bad the event is the same weekend as the Decibel Festival up here in Seattle; and too bad I love electronic arts more than SEO. But SEO is a close second.
