Be a Contestant

Want to take your business to the next level? Having a little trouble staying focused and moving forward?

Then this MAY be just the ticket for you — IF you’re willing to go public with your results.

We’re looking for just 15 unique individuals who have the desire to build something fabulous and see this journey through to the end.


What’s waiting for you when you cross the finish line?  How about:

  • A Grand Prize package worth $10,000 for the participant who earns the most points
  • Secondary prizes for the members of the winning team
  • A chance to interact with some of the most intelligent folks in online marketing
  • Lots of PR and exposure for your small biz and website (can you say Traffic bump?)
  • New friends and colleagues for life
  • The chance to learn, plan and implement new marketing skills
  • And best of all: a healthier bottom line for your business!

Ready to join us? Great! The first step is to make sure you’re a match for what we’re looking for.

Basic qualifications include:

  1. Have an existing business with a working website.
  2. Have an up-to-date business/marketing plan that includes:
  • A clearly defined Ideal Customer/Target Market
  • Solid branding (including logo and other materials) that tells the story of your mission/vision
  • Specific goals for growth over the next 12 months

Time Commitment

The web series premieres this January. Contestants will have a private orientation two weeks prior to going live. See our calendar for dates and times.

You should plan to spend at least 10 hours per week in this program. That time is broken down as:

  • Two hours each Monday for video conferencing (the lesson, mission, mentoring) and another hour or so (via video conferencing) meeting with your team
  • Five hours each week working on the mission as a team
  • Three hours each week working on the mission for your business
Since everything is done virtually, there is NO travel involved. You should, however, have a decent internet connection and a computer with a web cam.

If you feel you meet those requirements, fill out the application below. The top 100 applicants who meet the qualifications will be asked to submit a video about themselves and their business (no more than 3 minutes).

Deadline to apply is midnight, September 30, 2012 (Pacific)
