New York Day 1 – Interview With Ed Dale, Kath and Kim and Times Square

These are the first two of the videos I’ve put together for my trip to New York City. It was an awesome week spent walking, eating, walking some more and then eating again. It gave my body a break from the computer, which was needed after a busy few months with Blog Mastermind.

Ed Dale Interview

This video is from when I first landed and went straight to the 30 Day Challenge meet-up, which coincidentally was organized for the same time I was in the city. Ed Dale, a friend and fellow Aussie from Melbourne is the leader of the challenge and I captured this interview with him outside the meet-up venue, which as you can see was quite noisy, apologies for that.

Ed and I had some laughs about the likelihood of the American version of Kath and Kim succeeding (car accident was Ed’s words), plus we learn about how Ed become a well known Internet marketer and why he continues to work despite having made millions online years ago from his website sales.

Times Square

In this second video I head out to the streets of New York and wander into Times Square, which is always spectacular at night.

I speculate in this video how well the billboards convert as marketing tools and wonder whether a billboard with Blog Mastermind plastered on it would do very well. Look out for the cookie from the Roxy deli as well.

  • I have my wedding coming up in 7 weeks and I need to give my body a break fom th computer. I need to have like an “exercise day” or something. It is really hard though when I am trying to hard to grow my online empire so I can make a full time wage and not have to work

  • I love New York City! Hope it’s a blast.

  • I’m torn between my thoughts on billboard ads. I often wonder if they really do work that well.

    Obviously they work for some people, otherwise there wouldn’t be anyone using them, but I also know that myself, as well as others I’ve talked to, don’t notice them most of the time. In order to get noticed, they have to be really flashy.

    One type that I do notice is the new LED boards, they tend to get people’s attention because they’re new, but I’m still not sure about the old generic type.

    I’d like to read other people’s stories that have used them before.

    • I think billboards work, within the context of a larger marketing campaign as a kind of reinforcement tool (to help reinforce some of your main points that you expound on in the rest of your campaign), not as an actual means to generate immediate action that can be tracked.

  • Yaro,

    I never been in NY before, and watching your Times Sq. video is definitely delightful!

    Cheers 🙂

  • When I first read the title, I thought it meant you were doing an interview with Time Square. I guess that is a good way to get people to read your posts, I know I read this one 🙂

  • Ed Dale is AWESOME!!! I’ve just done the 30 Day Challenge. Love the interview with him. He’s such a genuine guy and seems so comfortable in his own skin.

  • This is a very enjoyable post, enjoy the useful information from Ed and the colorful sight seeing at the same time.

  • Yaro…thanks for sharing your New York visit with us! Love New York! Best street-vendor food in the world!!

  • Ben

    Yaro, that’s a great video from a great city. I love New York.

    @Bob: You get much better street-vendor food in Munich, Germany. I can recommend a visit since I live in that beautiful town for more than 2 years now.

    Greeting Ben

  • Apparently you have never been on a Moscow subway.

  • Man, ur so lucky – each week u are somewhere new
    Ur my inspiration to succeed as of now 🙂

  • Looks like you had a great time in New York. It is one of my favorite places to visit. I love the upper east side!

  • Anty

    I was wondering, with you travelling all over the US, are you using a B-1 business/B-2 tourist visa or something else?

    ‘Cause I’m trying to figure what the rules would be for a non-US citizen who makes their income from their own blog (through advertisers, Adsense, whatever), and updates it while staying in the US for a couple of months, thus keeping the money coming in– in the eyes of US law, would that be considered working illegally? Would it make a difference if your blog is hosted in your home country or the US?

    And the main question: Who the **** is knowledgeable when it comes to that sort of topic??

  • Hey Yaro, its good that you are enjoying New York. Coincidentally I work in Manhattan right next to Times Sq between 7th and 8th avenue. Let me know if you get bored, we can meet for coffee. I will show you where to get great pizza or street food.

  • How many years has the 30 day challenge been running for now? They have some stuff that’s quite usefull.

  • Yay, now I don’t have to travel to NYC to see Time Square
    Actually, on second thoughts, I’m still gonna go there someday 🙂

  • Looks like fun Yaro, I actually didn’t know Ed Dale did the website flipping thing, that’s new info to me. I bet that was fun, and new york looks pretty awesome.

    I’ve wondered myself about billboards, let us know when you decide to get one!

  • Ed Dale likes to work (despite his millions) because doing nothing is boring. I agree with him. In addition, there is a rush is helping other people.
