Last Thursday I was one of the lucky few to attend the first meeting of Nebraska People Making Money Online (NPMMO) in Omaha, NE. The event was put on by Jeremy Schoemaker aka (ShoeMoney
) and we had guest speakers from Proxibid. Now if you haven't heard of Proxibid don't worry. They asked that during the meeting and I didn't see one hand go up and they're a company located here in Nebraska. I guess the ShoeMoney crew was out in full force for this first event and really wanted to meet him.
Overall it was an informative event in learning about Proxibid and what they do and how they do it. If you wish to find out more about Proxibid you can visit their website Proxibid.com
. But basically they allow "auction companies the ability to broadcast their sales over the Internet in real-time to their customers who cannot attend the auction, and to reach new customers worldwide. This web-based application allows bidders to participate as if they were attending the auction in person."
Their most memorable auction sale dealt with two frozen mount lion or cougar cubs (sorry I can't remember). Which had been abandoned and died after their mother was killed so the Games and Parks office offered to sell them for science purposes. I guess it is true you can purchase just about anything on the internet these days.
The meeting was my first to such events. I had a great time talking with people and getting to know more about what other Nebraska's are doing online to make money. I look forward to attending more of these events and getting a chance to hear Jeremy's ideas on SEO/SEM/PPC/Arbitrage and other guest presentations.
