Ed Dale has been running The Challenge since 2006. It’s a free online training program he created that teaches people how to make their first dollar with internet marketing.
After nine years, he has only just started a podcast to support his students on a weekly basis. He is going to interview guests on how they made their first dollar.
In episode 1, he interviews John Reese. John was famous for being the first on the internet to make a million dollars in a day. John is difficult to find these days so it’s unusual to find him on a podcast.
I highly recommend you listen if you want to learn about an internet marketing pioneer.
Also, John reveals he’s about to start a podcast of his own, which I’ll update you about later.
John and Ed are both internet marketing pioneers who have shaped the history of the industry. For example, John was one of the first to create an autoresponder and Ed was one of the first Australians to own a domain name.
To find out about more people like them, take a look at module 3 of our free course.
