Here is something I am pretty excited about. Its something I have had on the back burner for a looooong time and just never got anywhere (my concept). Basically I wanted to do a apprentice style search engine marketing show on the web. I think many of us in the industry have talked about it at conferences and what not but nobody has ever done anything.
Well Joel Comm has taken the bull by the horns and launched The Next Internet Millionaire. I inquired with Joel a bit about the website to find out how some of it worked (prior to launching).
I asked Joel to give me the rundown – “We’re doing the web’s first reality show. Opened the doors yesterday and already had 15,000 views on the trailer video and 60 audition videos. Tons more on the way. We’ll end up selecting 12 people who will come to Colorado for 2 weeks and a 12-day intensive competition. The winner gets $25K and an opportunity to do a large scale joint venture with me. I believe we are breaking new ground and my goal is to demonstrate that the web is ready for prime time.. that is, that weekly long-form serial entertainment is viable on the Internet.”
I gotta tell you I am a little envious. I think this is going to be a massive hit. I get emails from people everyday asking how to make money online and to have a web based tv show people could watch where people actual make money (or not) I think is a massive recipe for success.
Nice work Joel! You can check out the Next Internet Millionaire here
