– If you would like to cruise for 7 days with the most amazing and cool people in the World,
– And if you would like an incredible promotion for your business along the way…
…..then read the post below.
In the last 4 years, I was monitoring very closely several internet marketing gurus and watched what they were doing. I can say that every new book I read every blog post I checked and every idea they wrote about was more or less jaw-dropping.
All this reading and learning also got my brains spinning and a couple of months ago I got an amazing idea – how Goolets ltd could make the World a better place with the help of marketing gurus! Sounds crazy? Maybe because it is!
What the hell a travel agency dealing with gulet cruises has in common with internet marketers and global recession?
Not much that is for sure.
But the idea arrived and why not try to do something good with it.
First phase: How it all started?
Several months ago I had a GO-TO-MEETING with my account manager Colleen from HUBSPOT! (by the way, if anybody is searching for amazing internet marketing software and internet marketing company, he should check them out) and while we were talking how we could make some changes on our page she started to show one of her colleagues what gulets are and how amazing vessels are they.
After that, we started to do a joke about how fun it would be to get a gulet and invite people from Hubspot on a free gulet cruise.
They would have an amazing experience, Goolets company would get some nice publicity as the marketers from this company would tweet, blog, or put pictures on Facebook about how cool these holidays are – everybody happy.
And then it was not funny anymore. It was actually a GREAT IDEA.
The second phase – THE big idea!
I started to think further…Hubspot is one of the biggest and best internet marketing companies in the World – sure.
But what if we do this event & cruise even bigger. I am a huge fan of Ryan Deiss, Frank Kern, Perry Belcher, Tim Ferriss, Noah Keagan, Seth Godin, Andy Jenkins, Jeff Walker, Derek Sivers (and many more)…What IF…WE GET SOME OF THOSE AMAZING PEOPLE (and more) on a cruise together?!!?!!?!!!!!
Wouldn’t that be a BLAST!?!
That kind of cruise would mean:
a) Incredible promotion for Goolets company as everybody all around the globe would talk about this kind of “MARKETING CRUISE”
b) A memory of a lifetime for everybody involved
c) Lots of fun
Third phase – 800-pound gorilla called “Fear of Failure comes in”! What if…..
What if all of them say NO?
What if I will not get any reply?
How do you even reach these people?
What if I do not get any proper ships?
What kind of program would be interesting for people, who already have it all?
Is this type of project even possible?!
This will probably not work…
Fourth phase – The solution!
I said to myself – screw
it! Let’s go-to action
And I started to think about what would make these people consider this type of holidays? What would motivate them?
I came up with these 3 MAIN THOUGHTS!
a) OFFER SOMETHING BIGGER THEN JUST A FREE HOLIDAY – OFFER THEM A REAL CHALLENGE!
b) MAKE A PROGRAM (CRUISE) THAT WILL NOT JUST BE CHALLENGING FOR THEM – BUT ALSO LOTS OF FUN! SOMETHING THEY WILL REMEMBER FOR LIFE!!!
c) MAKE IT IN A WAY THAT EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD WOULD TALK ABOUT THIS – HOW COULD THIS MAKE THE BUZZ ALL OVER THE INTERNET WORLD MAKING HUGE PROMOTION FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED?
I knew if I can make a combination of REALLY BIG CHALLENGE + AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE + HUGE PROMOTION FOR PEOPLE INVOLVED – IT MIGHT WORK!
I came up with this idea!
1.0 MAKE IT FUN!
I can not imagine anything better than 7 days FREE GULET CRUISE HOLIDAYS on the board of one of the MOST LUXURIOUS GULETS IN THE WORLD!!!
I explained the idea to my very good friend Ali Turan (owner of gulet Esma Sultan) and he was immediately up for the challenge.
But I did not only want to make a standard gulet cruise holiday. I wanted to make something AMAZING! And the only thing better, then gulet cruise on an ULTRA LUX GULET is a gulet cruise during a famous Bodrum Cup in Turkey! So 100 amazing huge wooden vessels on a regatta!!?!?!
2.0 GIVE THEM A CHALLENGE!
Okay, you will have several biggest minds in modern history cruising together.
They know all about marketing, the internet, social media, writing, inspiring people, helping people…they all made incredibly successful businesses and they know how to be successful.
All of them are leaders of huge tribes of millions of people who watch their every move!
All of them had amazing ideas in the past and they know how to make the idea work – and how to make the world the better place (while making lots of money along the way).
If you put all these people together for 7 days, feed them amazing food, get them to experience the regatta, swim, take hikes, talk during dinners provide some good wine & beer – the ideas would come on their own.
So why not make a goal – A MISSION – HOW INTERNET MARKETERS COULD MAKE A WORLD – THE BETTER PLACE.
We could just make this simple 3 step project:
a) Each person writes about his experience on this cruise and shares it with these followers (total reach would be millions of people)
b) Each person gives away some really useful information (maybe their BEST OFF CONTENT) – and joined library of this content is created
c) All the people would get access to this library which would help people in an immense way to make an improvement in their life (in different areas).
Would you be willing to take the challenge?
We have boats! We have an idea!
We have this amazing program!
If you are an internet marketing guru and you would like to be part of this idea, please let me know!
