    You can find it through his website thirtydaychallenge.com

    I believe the pre-season starts in June, but the actual challenge in August (but I can be wrong).

    Take care,

    Taking it one day at a time!

    30 day challenge is an EXCELLENT starting point for people who are new to internet marketing. It is also packed with great information for seasoned marketers, as well. It is completely free and Ed Dale and gang are very straight up.

    I recommend it, if it's anything close to previous years 30DC's... which I'm sure it will be.

      If you earn $1 online during the challenge, you win the prize.

      The prize?

      The knowledge, ability, and on-the-job experience to run a successful online business...

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 30 Day Challenge! It's completely free (although they will introduce some tools that cost if you wish to purchase them, but it's not necessary at all). It's a wonderful way to get a heads up on some of the newest and most effective trends for marketing. Great for just about any level of marketer - there's normally something worth learning being bandied about.

    Preseason for '09 starts in June, so I would suggest waiting and starting then. Although it certainly wouldn't hurt to watch last year's preseason and actual challenge videos to get a feel for how it all works. You might learn something really useful for your business.

    The 'prize' is the huge amount of knowledge and guidance you walk away with. Add in your own drive and action-taking-efforts and you come out with a viable business model for making money online.

    There is no cost to participate but don't let that deceive you! The value of the information they handed out for free last year was crazy! Of course, the real value of it depends on how much you actually do with it. Do nothing...earn nothing. Do something...maybe earn a heckuva lot!

      I did it last August. I found it worthwhile, though I realized a couple of planning errors weakened the program for raw beginners. The basic idea is to choose a niche and then test it for marketablily. That's the core purpose. I wished they'd put a bit more emphasis on planning a business model for the longer term. We were tutored to get a domain and hosting, set up a WordPress site, put an Amazon link on it, start blogging, then promote it through social media. It seems like most of the program was on social media, actually. There was also a nice, if brief, discussion of Adwords. 30DC had it's humorous moments, too. Ed got a little PO-ed at one point because people were ripping off his sample site and did a somewhat uninspiring blog video in response. Ed Dale is a pretty likable guy, though. And he had me the first time he said he'd made "millions and millions of dollars". I never miss his weekly podcast, Internet Marketing This Week. There's no cost for 30DC, but be prepared to have some products heavily pushed, like Market Samari and WordPress Direct.

      Anyway, it's very much worthwhile to catch the whole experience, whether you participate or not.

    It always amazes me how people can go to great lengths to put something together, but fail to include something as simple as a mention of a date. I don't see the start date mentioned on the site or in a Google search, but I did see one mention on the "pre-season" beginning in June. I believe last year the preseason lasted for 1 month, so I'm guessing July, but it might be August again, so watch that blog page every so often for whatever they feed you on it.

    Yes, it's not just for beginners - it's for people who want to learn the newest techniques. It's because of the Challenge (two years ago) that I understand twitter.

        There's a pre-pre-season video out now on youtube that I just watched giving a little intro. If you're new, you'll get an immediate glimpse at Dale's sense of humor. You'll see what I mean.

    Preseason for 2009 begins in June this year. It will last until August 1st, when the actual challenge will then start.

    If you can't start right then or if your schedule won't allow it, that's fine. You can start anytime and proceed at your own pace. The training material and videos will be available to you on the website.

    I'm a big fan of the 30DC. It taught me a lot about marketing. But it will only be worth as much as you put into it. Do nothing, get nothing. Do something, get something.

    Perfect for beginners but they also offer some cutting edge stuff for more seasoned marketers.

    Ed does go on a bit though!

    Ed does go on a bit though!

    Yes, he does and then many of the documents (for those who prefer reading like myself) just say "watch the videos".

    At the same time, it's incredibly kind of Ed to put together the Thirty Day Challenge. I've gotten a lot out of the 30DC and am deeply appreciative of Ed and friends putting this together.

      Yes Ed does go on a bit but in a funny way and i think its great that so much time is put into it.
      I love the idea of being in a team and it can only be of a benefit to people who want to learn new things.
      Im starting to build my team and cant wait for pre season learning

    For those who haven't heard of this before - forget the word 'challenge' and replace it with 'marketing education' - that's what this is.

    Ed is a good guy and puts a lot of effort into this event.

    Obviously he has his reasons and get some benefits from this - but if you were looking for a good place to get 30 days worth of solid IM education for free - you could do a lot worse than follow this event and take notes of what Ed says.


    nothing to see here.

    I did that challenge last year - if you're an absolute newbie then it's definitely worth doing, and completely free.

    I'm not sure there's much there for experienced marketers, but I'll probably check it out anyway this year to make sure I don't miss a trick!

    With all this talk about the 30daychallenge I might check it out this year as well ... who knows, there can always be some thing that you're not aware of, even if you consider yourself relatively capable of marketing.

  • Profile picture of the author Andyhenry
    I recommend anyone/everyone take a look.

    As some have said - it's not just about whether they're going to tell you anything you don't know (but it's likely), but also they structure the information in a very logical way and it's focused on creating something that earns money. Even if you only earn a little - you've been shown a solid structure for doing it again and again.

    Ed is a good guy, one of the few people I have no problem telling people to listen to.

    Whatever your level or knowledge - you're not going to go wrong listening to their information and since it's free, there's only really your time as the cost and you may get an insight that changes everything you do.

        The only question I have is if they are going to unveil an amazing piece of software for the challengers this year.

        If I remember right, Market Samurai was released last year along with the 30 DC?

        What a great tool!

    The original goal was for beginners to make their first $1 online. This year Ed has said he wants to concentrate more on selecting a niche you're truly passionate about in some way and working towards becoming a "market leader" in that niche.

    Ed and his team always unveil some cool new technology, most of it free (and all of it free during the challenge period). Last year, I ended up really loving Market Samurai but never really getting into Wordpress Direct. After the 30 days, you could buy both products for huge discounts (I think MS was like $69 then).

    Ed's a really hard guy not to like and a master at building anticipation and maintaining the interest of his audience - you can learn as much from watching him at work as from the actual content of the challenge. For me, the bottom line is it's free, it's fun, and Ed pushes the "free line" clear off a cliff - you'll learn more during the course of the videos provided within the challenge than from 90% of the products you buy.

    Oh, and as for the blog I built during last year's challenge, it hasn't yet made any money, but that's due to total neglect (and the fact that I left a lame affiliate product as its only source of potential income). But when I checked the traffic recently, it's up to 1000 uniques a month, and I haven't touched it or done any SEO since the challenge ended. So I put the site on my to-do list, since it's in a very commercial niche. All in all, not bad for a few hours of my time last August.
