I live  on the coast of North West England and it’s fairly remote so I don’t get many chances to meet up with other Internet Marketers.

Networking is important for making contacts to help build your business and to exchange ideas, so when the London Workshop was announced I grabbed my place quick.
(Or fairly quick – I actually had to cancel some other plans first to fit it in.)

I travelled down on Saturday and stayed the night in Kensington.

I woke up very early so headed off to the meeting with plenty of time to have a look round.

I walked through a Park by the Thames

As it was being held just off Whitehall I had a quick look round as I don’t go to London very often.
I used to live the part of the time when I was a freelance computer games programmer.

No.10 Downing Street can just be made out in the background behind the fencing and armed police.

I then headed back to the meeting at the Royal horse Guards Hotel

The event was organised by Kevin Brown who I also knew from Standing Start Profits.

The first speaker was Kevin Riley and he held a product creation workshop.
He turned the tables on former teacher Lee McIntyre who became a student for a few hours.
I first met Kevin on the Standing Start Profits forum and now take part in his weekly sessions on Mini Money Factories.

Kevin Brown then gave away some tips about using WordPress to create virtually any type of website, and a few people suggested he releases a product about it soon.

In the afternoon we had two lessons from Lee McIntyre where he gave away some of his secrets of list building, and then about automating your business.

I’ve first knew of Lee when I joined Standing Start Profits where I later became a moderator and he has rapidly grown his business to well over $1 Million per year.

There were two tea breaks and a lunch break where we got the chance to talk to everyone and also take a few photos.

Those of you who are on Alex Jeffreys coaching course will recognize two of his most successful students from the first course- Dan Briffa and Dean Holland who we are all hoping to emulate.
They have both been able to leave their jobs and become full time marketers.

After that I spoke to Tahir Shah (author of Dreams Not For Sale)

If you seen Tahir Shar’s blog http://www.tahirshah.name you WON”T recognize him below:

I also spoke to Matt Garrett a little about SEO, and it turned out neither of us has submitted a site to Google. (Let Google find your site by itself through links – submitting can delay your site being indexed)

That’s it for now – if you get a chance to goto on of these meeting grab it with both hands.

I’m now concentrating on make longer posts less often, so see you in a few days.

Here’s a video made by Kevin Brown at the workshop
