Underground 9 (UG9) Online Seminar by Yanik Silver

Is Underground 9 (UG9) Online Seminar Worth it or Just a Money Pit?

UG9 Online Seminar logoLet’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.

“Downside” Facts:

  • 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)
