Gary Ambrose And Keith Wellman’s Gateway To Wealth Seminar In Orlando, Florida

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on August 3rd, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 723 of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Gary Ambrose and Keith Wellman’s Gateway to Wealth Seminar in Orlando, Florida!

We just wrapped up the Gateway to Wealth seminar here in Orlando, and it was yet another content and fun-packed weekend.

In addition to partying non-stop with my roommates for the weekend, Lee and Robin Collins, we also got to hang out quite a bit with fellow Gateway to Wealth seminar speakers and VIP experts, including Mike Filsaime, Matt Bacak, Sean Roach, Kevin Wilke, Alan Bechtold, Jeff Dedrick, Kevin Nations, Alex Nghiem, Eric Stafford, Brian Koz, Joe Lavery and Christine Comaford-Lynch.

As a matter of fact, if you have been following me on Twitter and Twitpics, you’ll know exactly how much fun we’ve been having as they happen as I send the real-time updates from my mobile phone (you can see some of the recent posts on the right sidebars of this page).

But of course, what made the Gateway to Wealth seminar great is not just that we had a lot of fun, but the fact that all the speakers really wanted to help the attendees.

In an effort to maximize value for the Gateway to Wealth seminar audience, the speakers even held a special expert panel session to answer any and all burning questions the audience members have about building their Internet Marketing business.

Overall, the consensus among all the attendees is that the Gateway to Wealth seminar was a tremendous success and brought a ton of value, and I know for certain that the speakers enjoyed teaching at this event as well.

Because this weekend is scheduled to be one of my last seminars as a speaker this year (or at least for the next several months), I’m having some withdrawals at the moment, since I’m really going to miss this environment where attendees are so eager to learn and experts are so eager to help.

Live seminars is really a place where entrepreneurs of all levels get together and help each other out, create friendships, build partnerships and make a difference.

If we haven’t had the chance to meet yet at a live event, I’ll only be attending a handful more events this year (some of which have not yet been confirmed).

Google AdWords Workshop 2 in San Jose, CA

Hello from the Governor D conference room of the Holiday Inn Airport at the 2nd AdWords Workshop in sunny San Jose, CA!

adwords workshop
This is my second AdWords Workshop that I’ve organized on my own, and I must say that the support I’ve received from all my friends has hands-down made this better than the last, and will make this one extremely difficult to beat.

First off, the caliber of expert speakers we had at the AdWords Workshop were simply amazing – even *I* was blown away by who I was able to get to grace my stage!

I’m talking about Internet Marketing legends and rockstars like (photos taken from Blackberry Curve and sent to Twitter)…

Visit their websites – they are true Internet Marketing rockstars and have just a ton of immense value to bring to the table… I couldn’t help but take pages and pages of notes at my own event!

For the core part of the AdWords Training, we covered specific optimization strategies pertaining to landing pages, keywords, ad text and account structure, followed by hands-on and interactive sessions with not only real-life examples of my best performing campaigns, but we also worked with attendees to review their accounts and even create brand new campaigns from scratch live on stage.

The overall consensus is that the live demonstrations were the most valuable because even though the content was great, they wanted to see the strategies implemented in actual campaigns from which they can learn.

Thus, we did just that, and this has contributed to a large part of the AdWords Workshop’s success for the weekend.

And of course, none of this would have been possible in the first place if it weren’t for the help of my team…

So I’d like to publicly thank Alejandro Reyes – who put together the keynote and set the stage for the weekend, Kevin Finney – who facilitated and helped on stage during the interactive sessions and closing presentation, Andy Huang – who put together the weekend’s outline and took care of all the nitty gritty details, John Guanzon and his lovely wife Jessica – who helped organize the venue for the event, and special thanks to Amanda Swigert, who stepped up unscheduled and helped us out with everything from assistant duties to running the videos.

In this business, it’s not just the knowledge that you learn and apply, but also the relationships that you build.

I honestly had more fun at the AdWords Workshop this past weekend than any organizers should be allowed to have at their own events, and I owe it all to my friends who were able to bring this much value to our small group of awesome attendees.

Throughout the weekend, we had live streaming shows, exquisite meals, masterminds, social marketing experiences and just an overall good time with everyone at restaurants and bars (click here to view all my real-time Twitter updates from the weekend).

A quick note on the power of social marketing – on our live stream, we attracted over 50 viewers including Rich Schefren, Ed Dale, Jason Moffatt, Deborah Micek, Justin Brooke and Donna Fox…

In fact, Donna Fox made her decision to come to San Jose based on witnessing how much fun we were having, and she literally decided on Friday that she was going to come on Saturday!

And as Donna Fox and everyone else in attendance at the AdWords Workshop can attest, it was very well worth the trip…

We literally have raving testimonials from every single person who attended the AdWords Workshop, and even though I don’t know when I’m going to have a next one because I’m booked solid for the next foreseeable future (quite possibly six months or more), I definitely want to re-live the weekend sometime soon.

If you’d like to join us for the next AdWords Workshop and spend a fun and productive weekend learning and creating new relationships, keep up-to-date with any announcements we might have by joining our priority pre-notification list at www.AdWordsWorkshop.com

See You At The Next One!
