Meet the 2011 Community Marketing Challenge Participants!

Meet the 2011 Community Marketing Challenge Participants!

The 2011 Community Marketing Challenge (aka – Sarah and the Dudes Make Minisites…) is underway, and I am so excited to introduce you to the participants! Over the next eight weeks, we’ll be chronicling the process of developing, building and promoting affiliate marketing minisites for you with detailed posts that’ll go live on Saturdays.

I hope you’ll stay tuned for the results – should be a fun time!

So without further ado…

Your Fearless Leaders:

Sarah Russell: I’ve never done anything like this before, so I hope it’s helpful for you. Also, I’m way too lazy to write another bio (seriously – I just hand-coded an HTML table!), so go read my “About” page instead 🙂
Jon Alford: I’m Jon and have joined this community marketing challenge to meet like-minded people and hone my minisite building skills. My experience online has included website development, marketing consulting, some affiliate marketing, community building, and info and physical product sales.

Your 2011 Community Marketing Challenge Participants:

Ben Donahower: Ben Donahower is an experienced political operative who has worked for many local, state, and national candidates including Hillary for President, Rendell for Governor, and Casey for U.S. Senate. Ben recently started Campaign Trail Yard Signs and is excited to learn more about internet marketing.
Dustin Mason: Dustin is a father to one amazing four year old boy, has another baby boy due any day, and has been blessed with the most patient, loving, and understanding wife a man could ask for. The rest is just background noise.
Richard Schmidt: I’m a 23 year old Quality Assurance worker for a car company and I work 40-50 hours a week. In my off-time I write content and practice SEO for my new websites trying to develop them to make passive income so that I can save more money to move out on my own and travel abroad.
Dan McConnell: Dan is a middle aged contractor facing the realities of the housing crash. He has two wonderful adult children, a couple of ex-wives and is middling computer literate. Having worked his way through several careers, he has fixed on Internet Marketing as the newest leg of his personal journey.
Mauricio Morales: I’m a project manager (PMP) and I have a company since 2002 dedicated to PM training. I’m 40 years old, married, one little 4 years old kid. I reached this internet marketing topic because I’m looking for a way to build a passive income, since I have the problem of using too much time working IN my business and very little working FOR my business.

Check back next week for the first updates!

    Sarah and the Dudes make Minisites – haha. This will be fun and educational.

    Welcome, everyone, and it’s great to see you stepping forward to ride along with us.

    Hello Sarah.
    I just found your site today so I need to catch up a bit. But one thing I need to know now is what the theme is for your site. It has some features I have been searching for for a while and have not been able to find them.

    I am looking forward to learning much from you and the dudes as I am just starting in online marketing.

    Be well and do good.

      Hi Ken – Thanks for stopping by!

      As far as the theme for this site goes, I have two goals:

      1. To demonstrate that it’s possible to run an ethical online business, and

      2. To provide new affiliate marketers with the mix of business development advice and technical “how to” info they need to get started.

      If these things sound interesting to you, definitely stop back on Saturdays – we’ll be posting the results of this challenge for the next 8 weeks, and it should get interesting 🙂
