What they say about live events is true. They are life-changing.
While I’ve been attending and speaking at small Meet ups in Tokyo over the years, the Netpreneur Summit 2015 event in Tokyo was the biggest event that I’ve been to in Japan.
I am very humbled and still pinching myself that I was invited to be a speaker there.
It was an amazing experience to be able to share the stage with hugely successful business tycoons from all across the globe and share some of my knowledge and ‘secrets’ to the attendees.
We shared our inside secrets on how we’ve been able to build our businesses from the ground up and run it today.
Every single speaker has a massive success story. We are not professional speakers, we’re business people. We were not paid to be there. We shared our story, including the nitty-gritty of what we do everyday in the trenches, to build our businesses.
Even though I was a speaker there, I learned so much from every single one of the other speakers. And I think I speak for all attendees as well.
Never think that you know it all.
Always go to events or, even in your day to day activities, with a hunger for learning.
Just one tip can be worth thousands. Just one new friend can be worth millions.
That is the power of live business learning and networking events like Netpreneur Summit.
The hard-working guys responsible for the making it happen are James Brown and Chris Blair.
These guys created, yet another EPIC event. This one, Netpreneur Summit 2015, was their second one and a huge success.
Ever been to a live event where there’s 40% back story, 10% content and 90% pitching from the stage?
That is NOT what happened at Netpreneur Summit.
None of the speakers pitched their ‘amazing package’. It was 1% back story, (because stories are fun) and 99% content. I was amazed that the speakers were actually GIVING away amazing bonuses to the attendees.
A big shout out to all the speakers of the event. Go and check out their stuff! They know their stuff.
Day 1 Speakers…
I’ve known Kevin for a few years now. I firsts met him at a small get-together down in Tokyo and we’ve been in touch ever since. He spoke about how to create a digital info product business and customers for life. He is another Japan based marketer a laid back guy who likes hiking and beards.
Gulliver Giles & Leela Cosgrove
I hadn’t heard about this pair, although I should have. They have worked with Frank Kern and other A-list marketers and they brought the house down with their amazing stories and energetic presentation. They shared golden nuggets about how to close sales over the phone.
Of the many things they taught, they explained the difference between a “strategy” and a “tactic”. A strategy is the overall plan to achieve a result, whereas a tactic is the smaller, focused plans that make up the whole strategy. First time I’d heard it!
Mark is a Bitcoin expert with multiple products and services for the Bitcoin community. He offered a TON of info and gave away a heap of bonuses too. His story about losing everything (millions of dollars, his house and wife, and even ending up in prison) and starting over was unbelievably powerful.
A fellow Aussie entrepreneur with a very successful business consultancy in Western Australia. Kim shared some killer Facebook marketing strategies. One thing in particular that stood out to me was “the stages of awareness” of a customer. E.g. problem awareness vs. product awareness.
Adam is also another Expat living in Japan. He blitzed the stage with his Youtube marketing strategies and tactics. I’ve got to start using Youtube more! And I suggest you use it too. There is a heap of free traffic to be had from it, as Adam proved to us.
Day 2 Speakers…
Phil’s presentation was on how to build an e-commerce business. He is from France (I think, he speaks French) so English is not his first language. Even though, his energy and passion came through and shared a TON of resources and strategies to become a successful online seller.
Ed is quite a character who’s way of talking shockingly reminds me of my oldest brother! We chatted about the Netpreneur Summit a couple of weeks ago, but at the event I finally got to meet him in person and learn more about what he does. He shared his vast knowledge about domain names. And one thing we can all breathe a sigh of relief over is that all these new .disco .photo .book etc. domains are NOT going to take over the mighty .COM. Hooray for that!
He calls himself a Hillbilly, but this guy is far from uneducated. He has sold over $5 million of his ‘Jump Manual’ course online. He travels around the globe with his wife and kid and lives anywhere he likes. I had light bulbs flashing when he was sharing his sales funnel strategy. Similar to what I do, but he adds some ‘special sauce’ to it that is killer. I have to implement it ASAP!
Michael had to be the sexiest man at the event – hands down. LOL! In his Scottish accent, he shared his story of how he sold his fitness bottle business for a few cool million quid and is about to release an e-commerce platform that will revolutionize the industry. AND he is working with JB and Chris to hold a Netpreneur Summit in the UK next year. Watch this guy!
I was humbled to be able to share what I know about building a lifestyle business with list building. I went through the basics of niche selection and how to get the ‘ideal prospects’ on your list that turn into repeat customers. I also shared a few of my viral list building techniques. Perfect for if you want to build a list and make money while you’re relaxing at the beach or partying in Tokyo!
Entry to the event was a mere $497 per person. Can anyone say, “massively under-priced”?!
People are saying, including Gulliver Giles, that is was easily a $5000 per head event. And I have to agree.
The content shared and the networking done in that room over those 2 short days is priceless.
An amazing event in the best place on Earth – Tokyo, Japan. We were in the heart of Tokyo, at Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku. This is one event we will all remember for the rest of our lives.
By now, you’re no doubt kicking yourself that you weren’t there. But there will be one next year in Tokyo and also one in the UK.
Hope to catch you at a future Netpreneur Summit soon!
p.s. A big thank you to all the attendees who came from the corners of the globe to attend. I am honored that I was able to meet most of you and have a chat, even just for a few minutes. Good luck taking massive action and I am looking forward to seeing you again at next year’s event, or perhaps even sooner!
