    The $15,000 Challenge

    Dan Raine is a successful internet marketer and is inviting you to watch him either make a great big fool of himself, or celebrate in his success. Over drinks with some fellow Dot Com’s Dan said something along the lines of “If I had to start all over again then I could easily make ten grand within a month” His fate was seal and challenge was issued. Starting with just $150, Dan has to turn that into $15,000 in 30 days.

    Dan's progress will be updated on his challenge site. It’s an awesome opportunity to get an inside look at how the professionals make their money on internet, and everything that he does will be documented so anyone can follow the steps to build their own Dot Com empire.

    You can follow his progress by signing up to his site at http://www.15kchallenge.com/blog. What’s more, he’s giving away the complete site, and all the profits (even if he don’t make the $15k) to one person who signs up.

    If you don’t wish to sign up but still want to see how he is going to turn $150 to $15,000 in 30 days, then you can just access his challenge site here.

    Good luck Dan! You’re going to need it!

    Ok, there's no way it can be done unless there's some cheating involve, at the very least, if you really do start from scratch, it cost about $150 just to register the business with the city a publish FBN, get checks, etc...

    Well the domain is registered through what appears to be his current company so it's probably not being done from scratch.

    Also looks like they are based on Gibraltar, and while I'm not at all sure about the laws there they are probably based on UK law which allows you to set up a company in about 10 seconds (or however long it takes you to think of a name).

    I wonder what marketing strategies he'll that doesn't involve mass email or any other dodgy marketing method?
    You say you want to get a subscriber list of 5,000 before you start sending out.
    Also seems like he's going to market this by spamming forums -
    Q: Would you list a few of the forums you’re posting on so we could follow your posts and the the responses?

    Some of the forums I am currently posting on are:

    http://boards.hgtv.com/
    http://getcrafty.com/
    http://www.craftster.org/

    There are more, but I am sure you can find them..
    Sorry, but I don't trust most of these internet marketers. They're the snake oil salesmen of the new Millenium.

    All he would need to do is get 600 people to upgrade to the plat account... He will need high numbers... but that site I went to looked "spammy." I guess those sites really do work, or we will see....

    He says he is not "spamming" the forums. Simply posting like we do here with a link in his signature.

    check out http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showt...77#post1357617 - I do believe that he's just building a list - " I'm of opinion that it's done solely for a purpose of harvesting contacts or 15k$/month income hungry people - like us who signed up." - couldnt agree more.
