Internet Marketing with a Mission

April 13, 2008

Jason Marshall and Petey
If you keep up with this blog, it’s obvious that it’s been many moons since I’ve posted. I’ve been in social media hibernation focusing on my family. I probably should have put something up way before now, and I apologize to anyone who cares enough to read my stuff. I realize that in the world of internet marketing and social media that’s kind of a big no-no, but sometimes to be on-purpose and fulfill your real mission, you gotta do what you gotta do.

However, I am now thawing out to get re-engaged. Some things I’m working on are moving my blog to my own hosted site, writing an article about the perils and pitfalls of social media, and a putting together a white paper on social media strategies. More on that later, but I’m mostly emerging from hibernation to tell you about my friend Jason Marshall and his pal Petey.

An Internet Marketer on a Mission.

Jason was a contestant on the internet’s first reality show, The Next Internet Millionaire and turned everyone’s head by voting himself off the show! His desire to stay true to his sense of mission out-weighed his desire to make a lot of money. As a key part of Jason’s mission, he is a full time aide to a 12 year old boy named Petey who is suffering from a fatal disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Here’s a short video of Jason and Petey:

Jason is trying to raise money to buy a van to help transport Petey and his motorized wheelchair to appointments and outings. To do that, he has rallied some very successful internet marketers to put together a package of business building products as an incentive for people to help out. The package is worth over $2,000 real value for less than a hundred bucks. If you’re not interested in the package, you can just donate any amount. He launched last week and is still a bit short of the goal and is trying to make it by Petey’s birthday, which is this Friday, April 18th. If you’d like to help and get a great deal, check out: Petey’s Power Pack.
