When you think about seminars or conferences in the online marketing or business marketing space, the Underground Online Seminars by Yanik Silver are right towards the top of the list for many business and marketing experts, not to mention CEOs and Chief Marketing/Advertising Officers. If you don’t know what the Underground Online seminar is all about, see this quick video Yanik made that has memories made up from all 9 of the yearly seminars so far. Check it out here!
Free Ticket to Underground X Online Seminar
If you checkout this link for the blog post Yanik made, he also shares how anyone can get an opportunity to get a FREE ticket to UG X, which will probably be the best put together and swankiest Underground seminar ever (except it won’t be the most expensive). In any case, with a price tag of between $1495 and $2995, this seminar always attracts true business owners and entrepreneurs. Just take a look at this chart:
This seminar was a rush, and my first Internet marketing related seminar where I wasn’t peddled one program after another to buy. Not that there wasn’t stuff people presented, but that was kept to a minimum, where all I felt was a massive dose to useful tidbits from the presenters. One presenter after another did a good job of presenting how they made it to the level where they are now making millions with not just online businesses but also offline businesses with the online marketing skills they have acquired over the years. No wonder Yanik Silver’s Underground 9 Online Seminar was named as one of the “Must-Attend” Entrepreneurs Conferences for 2013 at Forbes.com.
There were panel discussions amongst some of the Maverick1000 coaching students that Yanik & AJ Roberts (Yanik’s business partner) have, many of whom are also making healthy 6-7 figures per year in their business ventures. Not only was this place packed with entrepreneurs from all kinds of niches, but also from various parts of the world. Some people I have bought online training products from were there as well and were very happy to share their ideas of what I could do better in my own business. I didn’t expect any of the famous people to talk to a newcomer like me, let alone offer targeted advice. You hear the gurus talk about keeping an abundance mindset, well this seminar was living proof that such people who believe in it and practice it, do exist.
As a bonus, I also received a copy of all the slides (not worth much without the videos though) that were presented at the seminar, the Go-Go Agent directory of all the people who attended the seminar. As a special surprise bonus I also received access to the UG 9 videos, basically the entire 3 days in videos, which is another $795 value. Check out the picture below.
If you missed this event, you certainly want to plan on attending Underground 10 in 2014. I hear it’s going to be somewhere warmer than DC (that would be nice). Yanik and AJ Roberts have put together a very special limited-time offer to anyone who wants the UG9 videos and/or get a discounted ticket to the Underground 10 Online Seminar.

Do you Need a BONUS or two to go along with the UG9 Seminar?
We are so used to getting stuff thrown at us from all angles as bonuses for anything we buy in the online marketing industry that we forget how impractical and useless some of these things are & so they just end up collecting “digital dust”. Most marketers think they won’t bother buying such a pricey seminar unless they get spectacular bonuses. So, to fill that appetite, how would you like these:
Special VIP seating for Dinner with ME at the event. How’s that?
Get MY Rolodex of the best contacts, vendors, resources and tools to run my business. Would that be helpful?
How about a fun party where you get to spend time with ME?
Now imagine if you get all this, not from me, but from the man, the legend, Yanik Silver. Even better though, you get to dine & party with your own choice of one or more Elite attendees (not me), and you get Yanik’s resources. You just have to network! Isn’t that worth much more? I think so. The above are Special Bonuses that Yanik provides. See them here!
Seriously, stop bothering with Bonuses that just pile-on without regard to whether you will be able to use them or whether they complement what you’re already getting from this seminar.
Best (BONUS) Advice I can Give is:
DON’T bother with bonuses most others offer; they will only add to the confusion and information overload
Go prepared to take efficient notes; I don’t like notepads, just take a professional-looking notebook (paper or laptop) and designer pen that screams “classy”
Discuss the concepts & ideas shared on stage with others you meet to pick their brains
Be an avid listener, and yet act as if you are already an accomplished marketer (fake it till you make it); and, don’t put your foot in your mouth by talking where you should be listening
Listening isn’t enough…ask questions to improve your understanding of whatever is being discussed, and then convert what you just learned into actionable items in your notebook
Go prepared to offer something of value to marketers & business people you meet, like a list of the best Fiverr gigs, best hosting company, best SEO service in your experience, best WordPress theme for blogging, best Time-Management tricks that work for you, Best Health & Exercise tips, etc…you get the point!
Take & distribute memorable business cards with your USP, if you have one!
Now, even after all this advice, you still need something of more value (like cash value) to signup for this seminar, I tell you what…I can’t offer any cashback bonus, which is probably against the rules. BUT, what I’ll do is if you signup throughthis link and come meet me on the 2nd or 3rd day of the seminar, I’ll give you a $250 Amazon Gift Card just for seeing me and networking with me – or – we can work something out, just email me at saab[dot]marketer[at]gmail[dot]com. If I don’t catch you at the seminar, I can email/mail it to you if you give me your info. Fair enough?
Just so you know, below is proof I registered already. See the video below to see me register live for the Underground Online Seminar.
The best feature about this seminar is the caliber of marketers and business people you can network with. So, let’s make the best use of that, don’t you think? 🙂 Let’s attend UG9 and build so many lasting connections at this event that it kick-starts or catapults our businesses. That would be the best UG9 Bonus ever, I think; so signup here!
Is Underground 9 (UG9) Online Seminar Worth it or Just a Money Pit?
Let’s consider the facts about this seminar event that happens every year in/around Washington DC and is organized by Yanik Silver, who is a serial Internet entrepreneur and a self-made millionaire.
Not many people can afford to attend it. It’s $1995 for the 3-day event in an undisclosed venue in Washington DC. But, if you attend with a guest you pay a total of $2990 & can split it 50-50 for a cost of $1495. 🙂
You may be one of the 13% that claim they haven’t made a dime in any online or offline business AND network with others in the same category. Then again that will have to be on purpose since over 40% of attendees make $100k-$999k/year, while over 10% of attendees make over $1M/year in their businesses. Even if you feel that the 10% are out of your league, can’t you learn anything from and network with the remaining 30% who make well over $100k/year for at least 1 of 3 days?
Location is undisclosed and will only be disclosed after you register. If you are a typical online marketer, you stress about getting all the information before making a decision. I’m guilty of doing that! 🙂 Can’t do much about that except take a leap of faith it will be a very good venue, easily accessible by roads and airports in and around DC. 🙂
It might be very cold, if not snow, in DC from Feb 28th to March 2nd. Couldn’t that also mean, lower numbers & cold might create more opportunities to network over coffee or hot sake? 😉
Does it appear I’m trying too hard to sell you on the idea that this event is absolutely worth the expenses (for registration, airline, hotel, car & food)? That’s because I have no doubt in my mind that it IS…so much that I’m buying a ticket as well. As an affiliate I get a special price. If you are an active online marketer and have joined other affiliate programs, you can join Yanik’s private affiliate program as well. Here’s the affiliate signup link.
“In Your Favor” Facts:
It costs $1995 now, but will be $2495 after Jan 18th, and maybe even more, as much as $3495 the closer you buy to the seminar start date of Feb 28th. Get it now before price rises on Jan 18th. No Joke, it will. It does every year! It’s $995 extra to bring a guest. That keeps the crowd away and mostly people who can justify spending that kind of money (not to mention, earn a lot of money), can and will attend. 🙂
Some of the most prolific names in business, marketing & entrepreneurship show up as ATTENDEES. Past attendees include Dan Kennedy, Mike Filsaime, Marlon Sanders, Jeff Johnson, Jeff Walker, Bill Glazer, Perry Marshall, Rosalind Gardner, Joel Comm, Willie Crawford, Mike Filsaime, Russell Brunson, Kevin Wilke, Andrew Fox, Brendon Burchard to name a few. Imagine the Networking & JV opportunities especially when past attendees have been shocked by how open everyone was to talk and share ideas.
The Underground Seminars are a No-Pitch, No-Fluff seminar where the Presenters are mostly underground marketers, authors, product creators and entrepreneurs. They all go through Yanik’s 5-point Test to qualify to speak. One in particular ensures they are NOT self-proclaimed Make Money Online gurus. They can do that if the bulk of their money is made by selling a real product or service.
Each Presenter competes for the $10,000 Top Underground Marketer Award. What does that mean? That’s determined based on the votes they get from attendees in the audience. So, only one presenter who gave you the most directly impactful information that you can take straight to the bank, will make bank! Overall result: Improves Quality of Information being shared by each presenter. 🙂
Past Presenters include Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh, Tim Ferriss of 4-Hour Work Week, Mike Faith, CEO of Headsets.com (a $30M company), Darren Rowse of ProBlogger.com, Matt Mickiewicz of 99designs.com, Gary Vaynerchuk, Ted Leonsis, AOL Internet pioneer, Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva.org and Bob Parsons, CEO of GoDaddy.com, among many others. Again, imagine the networking opportunities and the wealth of knowledge just waiting for you to devour it!
Over 40% of attendees recently have been business people who earn over $100,000/year, while over 10% of them earn over $1,000,000/year (not including Yanik’s Maverick1000 members who attend and each have a minimum $1M/year business)
UG9 seminar presenters include 14 underground business people. Some I’ll mention quickly are:
Ramit Sethi (Keynote Speaker), author of the New York Times bestseller, “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” and a renowned blogger.
Scott Rewick, one of the early pioneers of modern Affiliate Marketing and one of the most prolific media buyers over the last decade.
Frank McKinney, Real Estate Artist, 5-time International Bestselling Author, super hero meets Robin Hood, Philanthro-Capitalist, Risk-Taker, Ultramarathoner, Actor and Visionary who sees opportunities and creates markets where none existed before. Heard of Luxury House Building/Flipping? Well, he’s known as the guru’s guru in that niche.
Steve Gadlin is the founder of Blewt!, creators of comedy to delight and confuse. In 2012 his project “I Want To Draw a Cat For You” also appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank, and is now partially owned by billionaire Mark Cuban.
Dane Maxwell, at age 22, after being scammed for $12,000, humiliated, broken, defeated, and left with $123 to his name, Dane created a 6 figure software product in less than 12 months.
Catherine Cook co-founded MeetMe, which is quickly being recognized as the best place to meet new people.
Stephan Aarstol founded Tower Paddle Board which was pitched on ABC’s Shark Tank and got Mark Cuban to invest $150,000 for a 30% equity stake.
