Title: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: Dan on February 12, 2012, 03:45:57 PM
Does your local institution have space for at least 100 people and a projector and want to host a DD seminar on miles?
I'd be happy to ask attendees to make a small donation to the host.

Sounds like a great idea! Would you be willing to travel to the location?  :P
Do you already have a pitch and an idea how to market the event? Do you want us to bring in the audience or you just need the place?

Hatzlacha!!

Is this for DDF members or for anyone? Not too keen about the whole Flatbush/Lakewood/Monsey all getting involved in "the trade".

I would travel, especially to a place like NYC where it's just 9,000 Avios.
Just need a place, would attract the audience from DD readers.

Maybe after I tried it domestically first.

It'll probably be more of a beginner/intermediate course, though I don't see why it can't progress further than that.
We'll definitely have to have a DDF DO afterward at any rate.

I voted no :D
Find me a venue in NY or LA metro though (I'd be fine with a small cover charge going to a 501c3 host) and I'd be happy to give a seminar in person.
I believe the implication is a small fee that would go towards a charity.

Or Just rent the small hall of ULY. I think it's $350 or so. If you have about 110 people and the all pay $5, the hall is covered.

I actually emailed someone at ULY and she wanted a $450 payment up front, she didn't seem interested in having 100 people each making a $5 suggested donation.

I'd rather not have to lay out up front and then collect from people, I'd rather people just make a small donation directly to the host.

i dont know how it would go over with "management" here,  but we have a place able to sit 100 easily
but we are a 20 min drive from LA with a bad parking sitch

however to rent the community rooms in the parks in LA or surrounding areas, are not that expensive - maybe $80 an hr if a local reserves it, less if a non profit reserves it.

they also do the set up for u so no work involved

Past DDF DO's have shown that people are so eager to come, besides a select few (who are the advanced members for which the seminar will be less focused).

I don't believe you will reach 100, or even close to 100*.

I don't want to sound pessimistic, nor would I want someone laying out for a place, and get stuck with it.

*unless getting paid for it.

PS: seminar might sound different, as in more useful than a DO, but at a DO shticks were also given out albeit less than I suppose a seminar.

In BP, you can get any standard size Simcha hall for $350, without paying upfront. Don't know if you have too many people in BP.

will the seminar be for ddfers only or will it be put on the main site or will it be advertised as a community event for what ever city it happens in? If it is one of the latter two than I think you will get 100 people if it's only ddfers than I agree with sf that it's doubtful you'll get 100.

You got me, although I wrote some mistakes:

Past DDF DO's have shown that people are so eager to come, BUT TACHLES, besides a select few PEOPLE DIDN'T SHOW UP (THOSE WHO DID, are the advanced members for which the seminar will be less LA'INYAN).

This is not a DDF DO at all, I'm not sure why you keep comparing it to one.  Frankly I expect it to draw a very different crowd.

If you come you'll find out ;)

It isn't big enough for 100 people to comfortably attend, especially if you need space for a projector/screen. The shul only owns 50 chairs (though the shul is sometimes packed and many people have to stand).

I could probably get you a place in Lakewood for pretty cheap.

I agree that you would have a large crowd if you came to Lakewood. Your name is often heard around town!

Then again, you probably have a lot of followers in Brooklyn. Once you're coming in, why not make 1 in NY and 1 in Lakewood?

I think dansdeals is recognized as a reputable and kosher business that can teach others a whole lot of valuable lessons in running a successful website... and since you added that adorable picture ka"h you have a whole new human feel, I really like it! Keep it up!

If I was planning on attending I would be more than happy to put up the 500. You can charge a small donation to attend. The first 500 would go back to the person whom put up the 500 and the rest to the place hosting the event. How about a VFW post? My guess is they would jump at an offer like this.

You think you're going to get more than 115 people? Really?
No clue.  There were over 150,000 visits to main DD.com site from NYC last month.  How many would be interested in actually hearing me speak I have no clue.

115 @ Nossn's shul will be significantly more crowded than 115 at CChovevei.
The problem with Chovivei is that it's underground so no cell/4G service if I want to demo something like an award booking or using ITA.  Of course with powerpoint I can just do that stuff beforehand and put it on a slide I guess.

Post by: jj1000 on March 01, 2012, 02:55:01 PM
Practical question, is it going to be mixed, separate seating (mechitza?), or Men only? Are they taking into acount all 115 people being able to see a screen/projector?
115 @ Nossn's shul will be significantly more crowded than 115 at CChovevei.
True but free is free... Maybe we can do Nosson's shul with RSVP for like 90 people and if there is a big demand or it works out well we can do chovevei a different time... Or if the RSVP gets over 115 well revert to chovevei.

115 is still a lot.  Look how many active NYC DDF'ers we have (which are the most active folks) and how few have been to a DO.
People have other commitments  and/or are lazy or just don't want to be bothered.

CMIIW but I think you're trying to attract a very different crown than a DO.

If you advertise on the main site that you will be teaching how to accumulate tons of miles and get statuses and free stuff etc, I think many more people would be interested than the amount of people that were interested in going to a restaurant to meet and greet other forum members.

Let me just say this. I was in 770 and @ my table we got into a discussion about the whole mile thing. Alot of guys were shocked how easy it is to get miles. And when I mentioned that Dan was looking to do a seminar, they started looking for a place to make it happen. Which led to the invitation from nossons shul, so I would assume you would have a decent amount of bochurim.
P.s. nossons shul recently renovated so it is larger but still very narrow

This begs the question:

Will you (Dan) be spending most of the time on beginner's stuff? Like what is a credit report? What is a hard/soft inquiry? etc etc?

This is where a guest speaker might come in handy. I am not questioning your knowledge on the subject but it is hard to keep up with everything. I would guess most experienced DDF’s are not familiar with what a “credit bucket” is. There is also a lot more to inquires than what is being discussed here.

Just brainstorming some potential topics for a seminar.  My thought is to target a beginner-intermediate crowd but to sprinkle in stuff to appeal as broadly as possible.  If you are an expert user though you may find yourself bored.

What other topics would you want to see covered?

Paid tickets/stays:
-Where to search.
-When to book, when to fly.
-Tools to find discounted tickets via tricks like hidden-city.
-Fuel dumping.
-Elite status, matching, and challenges.
-Mileage runs
-Priceline tricks and tips.

Credit cards:
-Credit scores and effects from card churning and closing.
-FICO/FAKO
-Credit for beginners.
-Financial responsibility.
-Payment timing.
-Multiple browser method
-Credit Freezing
-Churning amongst the different banks.
-HUCA
-SM/Calling
-Methods of meeting spending requirements
-Staying under the radar.
-Consumer vs. business
-Cards for benefits and cards for spending.
-Maximizing purchases by choosing the right card
-Retention bonuses
-Annual fees

Award Tickets and miles:
-Airline miles, hotel points, transferable points, and non-transferable points.
-When to pay and when to redeem.
-Expiration policies
-Fuel surcharges
-Infant fees
-Searching for awards on partner airline sites.
-Searching for awards on subscription sites.
-Saver/Standard awards.
-Alliance partners awards.
-Non-alliance partner awards.
-Award Holds.
-RTW/alternative flight awards
-Stopover, Open-jaw, and trailing leg awards.

DDF plug!

There are two prerequisites to this game:

1) Financial  wherewithal (ability to pay in full) and financial discipline (actually paying in full) and,
2) Organization

I'm sure there's going to be a load of new members on ddf after the seminar.

An idea would be to teach the basics of searching/posting on ddf instead of having 100 n00bs asking questions in the wrong threads and starting new threads for no reason. - The reason why this idea it a bit impractical is bec its going to be hard to show somebody around a place that hes never been to.

A better idea would be to set up a master thread with links to all the basic threads.
Then when all the new members enroll, they would be directed there and they would be able to find the correct thread to post in (and possibly to even find an answer before posting  ;) )

Start off with everyone in one group. It would then be best to break up into different groups based on comfort level. In the advanced groups let the members of that group decide the topic.

I working on the premise that other members have expertise on certain subjects they might be willing to share. Also a major mistake I have made in the past is the assumption that if something worked for me it should work for everyone. Things that Dan and other members can get away with because of the strength of their credit file may not be something a n00b can duplicate.

Nop. I don't know either way, but tentative has 2 definitions    

1. Not certain or fixed; provisional
2.Done without confidence; hesitant

Neither imply a firm date or event. So being I didn't see ANY advertising, I have my doubts... I am just really not sure that's all.

even if u don't rely on the rsvp, at least u ll know if we are talking about 50 or 300 people... if it is the latter then maybe getting a bigger place would be best? I have some cheap suggestions if u r interested (i know u r looking for free...)

Unless your looking for a way to get rid of those gift cards... I would say to just make people put a little effort into rsvp'ing like say they have to send a fax with there name on it or fill out a long form online you pretend you were a rebate company......it doesn't need to be very difficult but it shouldn't be one click it email

Ironic because Geshem Center supposedly said they'd arrange JCM for free, I'm not surprised that didn't happen (JCM is an expensive venue).

Dan, do you think regulars shouldn't attend so there's space left for n00bs, or should I RSVP?

Also, if you feel the need to encourage attendance, maybe offer some $20/25 GCs that some of the attendees will receive....

I dont think I am able to make it this time but since you are having rsvp's and will have a list of people who are attending and I assume their emails, you should email the participants to submit questions beforehand for the q & a.  Dan, I have no doubt you can handle the questions on the fly but the questions tend to be much better when they are pre submitted.  Otherwise you end up with a lot of questions that are specific to the person asking and not too many other ppl.

I dont think I am able to make it this time but since you are having rsvp's and will have a list of people who are attending and I assume their emails, you should email the participants to submit questions beforehand for the q & a.  Dan, I have no doubt you can handle the questions on the fly but the questions tend to be much better when they are pre submitted.  Otherwise you end up with a lot of questions that are specific to the person asking and not too many other ppl.

This isn't a bad idea... except instead of emails, you may want to post your (somewhat detailed) outline on DDF and ask for suggestions from the people who will be attending, if you're up for it.

I like that idea. Maybe a sticky until the event (or permanent one for future events). It will encourage a lot of DD only ppl to DDF.

Yes. Why can't people understand that it's in a synagogue and that synagogue can decide whatever they want. If the synagogue decides that anyone attending must wear a tie then yes you must or don't come.
You are assuming everyone understands other cultures. If this was my first day on this forum I would be posting the same type of comments.

I have a feeling the majority of the ppl complaining are non-frum/MO Jews. Non-Jews seem to understand and respect religious beliefs. Jews always want to make a big deal out of it. Anyone remember the whole Maccabeats fiasco?
They understand good and well, they just like making trouble.

That's just as good. I just figured emails would directly target the ppl who rsvp'd and not get ppl who won't be there making suggestions. Let the ppl who will be there give some direction to the topics, not ppl who won't be there. My assumption was that most ddf'ers weren't attending since this seems aimed at ppl less experienced but it seems that assumption was wrong. As they say, "Assuming makes an a** out of you and ming."
Also, emails would allow for ppl who might be hesitant to ask their questions in a more public forum or who aren't on ddf (yes they should join but if they haven't and they are coming they should still have a say).

As I said, I won't be able to make it that night but figured I'd make that suggestion as I've seen some q&a's fail because of the questions. .

come on, if someone spends a significant part of his time on ddf then I think it is a fair assumption that he is not a beginner (at least not after several months on ddf).  Of course this is speaking in general terms but I'd feel confident to say that the average ddf'er is more experienced than the average dd main page guy.  That doesnt mean an expert in everything and that doesnt mean that most ddf'ers wouldnt gain from this seminar. 
And with Dan's target audience of beginner/intermediate and his frequent warnings that more advanced people may be bored I'm surprised that some of the most experienced DDF'ers are going.  I guess its being looked at as a DO of sorts.  Obviously I am not saying that anyone shouldnt be going, just explaining my earliest assumption that there will be many non ddf'ers at this event.

I have a new challenge.
  In anticipation of the seminar. Open a new Topic thread on the front page of DDF for NOOBS. You must have 10 or even just 5 posts there to post on the regular forums. This way they can ask all the redundant questions they want and not clutter the forums. If they have good questions or topics everyone can also obviously help them there. It's been discussed before and I am to lazy to explain all the benefits but that'd be awesome!

Oh ya if you want to put one of these together that'd be cool too :P TIA

Is there any way we could bring audio recording devices so I don't need to take written notes? I would like to pay attention to what is being said and review the audio later if I missed something.

Also, are we supposed to get confirmation of our RSVP, or is the sending of $10 thru amazon payments sufficient?

I hope Dan will discuss in the seminar what a 3/BM is and how to do it, so that on tues. we don't have 50 ppl asking how many pulls will they get with a 3/BM Citi/Amex/Chase.

Just brainstorming some potential topics for a seminar.  My thought is to target a beginner-intermediate crowd but to sprinkle in stuff to appeal as broadly as possible.  If you are an expert user though you may find yourself bored.

Credit cards:
-Credit scores and effects from card churning and closing.
-FICO/FAKO
-Credit for beginners.
-Financial responsibility.
-Payment timing.
-Multiple browser method
-Credit Freezing
-Churning amongst the different banks.
-HUCA
-SM/Calling
-Methods of meeting spending requirements
-Staying under the radar.
-Consumer vs. business
-Cards for benefits and cards for spending.
-Maximizing purchases by choosing the right card
-Retention bonuses
-Annual fees
Seems like that will be discussed

The point of a 3bm is to minimize the amount of inquiries. 

Applying for cc's with 3 different banks on the same day is referred to here as an app-o-rama. When doing an app-o-rama, most of us will apply for at least 2 or 3 from each bank to maximize each inquiry.

+1, It's long been recommended to have all inquires done on the same day. That's part of the AppORama trick too, to get as many apps in on the same day.

The first modern frequent flyer program was created
at Texas International Airlines in 1979. [1] American
Airlines' program was a modification of a never-
realized concept from 1979 that would have given
special fares to frequent customers. It was quickly
followed later that year by programs from United
( Mileage Plus ) and Delta ( SkyMiles ), and in 1982 from
British Airways ( Executive Club ). [2
Wasn't there that's courtesy of wikipedia

Awesome seminar Dan. You spoke like a  pro doing this for years. I think all the beginners thoroughly enjoyed it! Everyone must have cracked up 10 during the event. Hopefully next time you'll set up a more precise question answer system. Maybe write down the questions from last night and remember to speak about them next time. Also people can submit questions before. Either way definitely need to save most till the end of each subject if not the end of the event.

@jj lol... I wasn't there, I had something that prevented me from joining the DO and attending the seminar. I would love to come, not to do trouble, but to show my face for a few DDFers, and to learn something new, especially the award booking topics which I miss so much since I'm a real Am HaAretz when it comes to flight booking.
Attention attendees: let's take a test and see what you learned yesterday!
Does it makes sense to use avios to fly NYC-DFW-EGE?
The first 2 correct answers get a free meshugener T-shirt!

Just to clarify, the reason why Orthodox Jews seperate men and women has nothing to do with disrespect to women. It's because we believe you shouldn't be attracted to a women who's not your wife, therefore we seperate the genders. Even if you don't agree with such an idea, is it an idea worth boycotting? (I know you weren't serious that you boycotted it, but you do seem disturbed by the fact that it was men only).

Before this gets out of hand my comment was an attempt at humor. It is no secret about my views towards all women. My views as to the way Orthodox women are treated are still evolving as I talk to more members here. To use the word “disturbed” is a little harsh. After the DO two DDF members and I walk around for at least a half hour. We could have discussed the latest and greatest deals. Instead I asked questions like “what do the strings hanging down from your shirt mean” and “what is the big deal about turning on a light during Shabbats”. Their answers were very enlightening.

I don't believe that at all. It's normal to be attracted to people of the opposite gender (it's normal and healthy), so the rabbis enacted gender segregation as a precaution to keep the genders from mingling (i.e. to demote promiscuity).

My apologies. It's nice to see someone brought up in the General American society can be open to understanding a culture/religion that on the surface looks extremely backward, especially in regards to women.

Only by people who see things in a warped way. Part of the problem (no offense) is when Orthodox Jewish people describe these rules the way you did. It isn't about separating women from men, it's about segregating genders. What starts off as semantics ends up giving people the wrong ideas.

Wow, you really have bad comprehension skills!!!! Of course it's normal to be attracted to all women - that'a the point! We dont intermingle ( I called it Separating men from women, you called it segregating genders), because if we do we'll be attracted to each other.

( I called it Separating men from women, you called it segregating genders)

Not the same thing. Your statement makes it sound like men need to stay away from women, when really it's genders that need to say apart. Call it semantics, but your phrasing leaves a lot of space for people to get the wrong idea.

We dont intermingle ( I called it Separating men from women, you called it segregating genders), because if we do we'll be attracted to each other.

You obviously don't know the definition of attraction, it has nothing to do with proximity or mingling (i.e. you could stay away and not mingle and still be attracted, totally normal).

Man, and I used to think you were smart.

Sorry, takes one to know one :P

you may be right, i dont know if i was clear enough. btw i disagree, we specifically seperate men from women, bec. hirhurim is asur by men, the isur histaklus is on men. true we also segregate so not to intermingle. basically theres 1 reason that we seperate both from each other, and theres another one that we seperate men specifically.

if you see a woman you can be attracted to her which can cause hirhurim. therefore we dont mingle with women  and then we wont to be attracted  to them (which would be normal) as not to cause hirhurim which cause.... do i have to spell it all out for you. learn the sugya of histaklus, hirhurim its all there.

You can not mingle and you'll still see women, so if you can't control yourself you'll be nichshal anyway. Either way, I maintain that attraction <> hirhur, the former is natural, the latter by choice.

You're not instigating an attraction, you're instigation a fantasy (hirhur), those are two very different things.

I don't want to keep you (you said you need to go), so come back later and we can pick up where we left off, you can also request the mods move this to JS in case our discussion gets hectic here)

@AsherO, when I got engaged, my Rosh Yeshivah told me not to text my Kallah, because there can be a lot of miscommunication thru texting. I think thats what just happened between us. I was very insulted that you stated that i'm giving a bad name to klal yisrael, without giving me the benefit of the doubt that i didnt mean attracted in the sense that you understand it. Now I cooled off. Al tadin ... beshas kaaso. If your that guy with the beard sitting in that pic earlier, you actually look like a harmless fuzzball. :)

Even though I was only making that statement in jest it seems that your a little perturbed by my "confrontational" by quoting  the Issur of "lo sechaneim".  Do you always find the Torah to be "confrontational"?

I know I'm late to commenting on the recent seminar, however since I flew out the next day, I didn't have a chance.
Number one: Dan, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it, everyone in the room was kvelling!  May you be zoche to keep on bringing smiles to e/o faces like you did that night!
As far as you were concerned per se, I can't have any complaints, you were amazing! 

My only problems were not with you, but rather; A: That they cut you short -that got lots of us upset, we were so hungry for more.. ehhh, I can't begin to tell you...  You've gotta make up for all that time you were cut short... :)
B: It was at times very hard to hear you, not your fault at all but rather that the shape of the Shul is a rectangle, so those closer to the entrance had a hard time hearing you, (especially when some yukels walk in in-middle of the lecture (ehhemm, Jewda?) and cause that squeaky door to make noise... ::) Just kidding, well, not really but..) etc.. etc.. The shape of the room really made a big difference..

Re. all those complaints about the structure of questions, I'm totally fine with the way it was, I thought it was great except for when the same question is asked twice.. now that's where it gets annoying  ;) (Q.'s that were OT, you immediately pushed off, rightfully so).

BTW, I don't understand why you took so seriously all those nudnik's who were so conceeeerned (Michael Savage comes to mind!) that this was a males's only event.. Big shtink, you can make a seperate one for all the ladies.. :P
IDK why you caved in like that ???

Once again, as far as YOU are concerned, you were awesome!   Can't wait for the next one!

I never said it would... I am just saying it would definitely get a larger audience, get organized pretty easily, and there would be no seat reservation/room searching/booking/advance payment/post reimbursement with amex cards and any other hassle of the sort... Set a time, a link, whoever is available joins from wherever (Israel, US, etc.) and open a Q&A at the end...
Dan will even be able to switch between him talking, showing off slides, browsing a website and showing off some cool booking/5BM/deal catching tricks ;)

No, depending on the platform, the participants can for example click on a "raise your hand" button and the hosts then decides who can talk by giving him access to the mic or he can do it via chat/lists/etc...

I never kept on suggesting the webinar. I said it once and then I answered YOUR questions. Stop asking them, I'll stop answering.

How would the Q's work?  Everyone screaming all at once? 

And...


Now your talking sense...but still no secrets...

Does your local institution have space for at least 100 people and a projector and want to host a DD seminar on miles?
I'd be happy to ask attendees to make a small donation to the host.

I would like to have Dan back in NY for a Dans Deals Seminar any one like the idea please post a reply.
Dan would you come out to NY for another seminar?

Perhaps you're referring to NY'ers calling Manhattan 'the city', definitely not NYC, NYC has five boroughs, last I checked..  I know there's been a new fad recently of residents of certain states petitioning to secede, however to my knowledge, I haven't as of yet heard Brooklyn seceding from NYC ;)

As someone who lives in New York, when I say I am going to the city, I am only referring to Manhattan. Bothers my wife (not from NY) to no end. Makes it seem like Manhattan is the only city in the world. Also, I avoid Brooklyn like the plague. Only go for funerals, cheap meat and Pardes. Lets do it in Manhattan or maybe in Queens/Bronx... 

Or maybe somewhere in the Five Towns and do it as a fundraiser for hurricane Sandy. I think that would be a fantastic idea. So many people/shuls/schools were destroyed. Charge a small admission fee, have a raffle of items and all the money goes the help rebuild after Sandy.  I am sure you will get a very large and receptive crowd. I would love to help organize.

Thoughts?

Ok so I'm assuming when you mail something to bk you place nyc on the envelope for city?? And when you place an address into a Gps you put nyc as the city?? I didn't think so. True theoretically bk is part of nyc but not in e/o's terms.

"the city" like I said.

Plague?  Strong language, is it that bad?  Or is it just a paranoia?

You can't judge anything from mail, and here's why.  All that matters are zipcodes, as city you can put whatever you'd like (though writing something inaccurate may slow down the delivery), yes even NYC.  Many neighbourhoods in the five boroughs put down their neighborhood as 'city', you can put Borough Park, NY, Riverdale, NY, Cambria Heights, NY etc etc.. these are very common.  Is Riverdale it's own city?  Last I checked it was in the Bronx..  but people do write Riverdale, NY.  Perhaps it's because it's the largest city in the US, so dividing it postal-wise makes it easier.  However I know the same sort of thing happens in Miami, there are areas in Miami which  mail is sent names of neighborhoods as the 'city'.

Re. GPS, mine has actually many times  automatically put an address in Brooklyn as NY, NY.

As for a place, there is a resturaunt in town that I am sure would be happy to let us use it (free of charge). Obviously they would be interested bec they will sell food.

Restaurant מאן דכר שמיה?!
Admission?  ($20 (!) to top it all of?!) מאן דכר שמיה?!

This is supposed to be a seminar, a free seminar (with a minimal admission, perhaps -at best), not a DO.
There's another thread for DO's (where people go to s restaurant and eat).
Did you get confused between the two?
As Dan already said
I'm not sure if a restaurant is the ideal place for a powerpoint based seminar.

Restaurant מאן דכר שמיה?!
Admission?  ($20 (!) to top it all of?!) מאן דכר שמיה?!

This is supposed to be a seminar, a free seminar (with a minimal admission, perhaps -at best), not a DO.
There's another thread for DO's (where people go to s restaurant and eat).
Did you get confused between the two?
As Dan already said

Come to think of it, when I was in Cleveland for 'Chosson classes' we had a guy come over to give as a class on finances. I think they should replace that with a DD seminar, anyone with me on that? That way I would have at least gained SOMETHING from it (if only a better honeymoon than the one I actually had :P )

-If they're not a 501c3 they can choose where to direct donations and be an event sponsor.

If you want this to happen I suggest posting on the main site. And post a list of requirements...

Example you will need

- a room to hold 200 men and women, with chairs set up facing one large wall with a screen.

- a set up and working projector.

- One person or organization to take charge of everything working out.

- also mention you'd like the seminar to be free if someone would sponsor the above items. Otherwise a small donation to a 501C3 as an entrance fee would be good as well.

-If they're a 501c3 people will make seat reservations by donating to the host and the host will be an event sponsor as well.
-If they're not a 501c3 they can choose where to direct donations and be an event sponsor.
What does that mean?
Does Dan not charge?

Need to be able to accommodate men and women though one way or another. Not going through that again.
Is a regular mechitzah enough? Even if the speaker speaks from a raised stage?

It won't be worth your, but LGA is closest I believe.
With a corp code or voucher a car rental should $30.  Hotels are always a crapshoot in NYC, but probably best off with an airport hotel on priceline.

If you are going to the NYC one LGA/JFK, EWR not too bad (~40 minute drive, but about $25 in tolls RT)
Closest major airports to Lakewood are about an hour away. EWR/PHL.

With almost 400 people you'll never finish if you're stopping in middle for questions.

I think a limited number of questions AFTER (see above) each topic makes sense. (I doubt 1 slide = 1 topic)

IMO it won't help. People want to ask their question.
If 10 people ask the same question Dan can say this was asked by {insert names here}. And this was it is a lot more efficient.

2 Major problems of last years seminar was:

1. Too many questions on every topic discussed. Yes we can talk about each topic for hours and keep learning new stuff, but the point is to cover many topics. Maybe make a 2 question per topic limit.

2. Many people asked very specific questions about their own applications, credit score, experience booking tickets, ad nauseum. Be sure to clarify even during the Q&A that they must be questions everyone can gain from. Also be sure to tell people if it gets to specific or complicated you will have to move on to the next person.

I say have people send in Q's before the seminar so, if something is asked by many people you can for sure cover it.
this is what they do at many halacha events. It works because the stupid/selfish Q are weeded out and you can pick usefull questions and prepare better, not waste time understanding the questions. It is their questions, they can email them in...

2. Many people asked very specific questions about their own applications, credit score, experience booking tickets, ad nauseum. Be sure to clarify even during the Q&A that they must be questions everyone can gain from. Also be sure to tell people if it gets to specific or complicated you will have to move on to the next person.

That's one good reason to have the questions submitted in writing.
(another is to give priority to questions asked by multiple people)

Maybe make a 2 question per topic limit.
Makes sense, but i assume there would also be a general q&a at the end?

Title: Re: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: mmermss on April 25, 2013, 08:49:35 PM
I know...it was hard enough last year with less than half that crowd.

Not quite sure how I'll handle the questions this time around.  Suggestions from those who were there last year?
Here's my two cents from my experience last year. It started off not complicated and great for a beginner to understand and take in. Then started the questions and I got kinda lost. It was just so much information to take in in one shot. People started asking not even such advanced questions but for a total noob they won't have a clue what's going on.

Another thing- CMIIW but I don't think there are too many ddfers who are knowledgable and pros in all areas. Therefore I think even if your a pro at credit cards you can still learn a lot about finding flights etc.

Regarding questions asked- I won't be there this time so I'm not sure if I have a say but I really think questions should not be asked till end. Dan should just not answer questions. As simple as that. I think Dan explained the material very well last time and if any one has their own special question...come ask it on ddf. It gets soooo off topic and complicated once the questions were asked. Bedsides the fact that he was running out of time and he had to rush the end.  I think the point of it is for people to get their feet wet a little. For people to see what ddf is all about.not to walk out of those doors and think they're a pro and start advertising they're a TA.  If every Jo shmo asked their question in the middle ppl will not like it.

Overall I loved it last year and hope everyone learns a lot next week.  :)

How about have a moderator fielding the questions (people sending him notes) so he can weed out the dumb Questions/lump together the common ones/ask the question in a way everyone can understand etc.
Title: Re: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: DovtheBear on April 25, 2013, 09:04:32 PM
Hmmm. Now its a tough choice. :-\
I would think to generally answer written questions that were submitted beforehand, and then if there still are questions, take 3-4 after each topic.
Is that crazy?

Yes. Trust me. There shouldn't be any really simple questions asked because that will be explained in the presentation. Any other questions should be asked only at end.

Now the question is how should that work out. I don't think there is a way that will make everyone happy because everyone wants their question answered. Just stress that if they go home that night and ask their question here without them starting the question "hey Dan"  :P then they will answered by other knowledgable ddfers who can help them out.

Or you can invite them to your hotel and you can answer all their questions there  :P

I don't think there should be any questions until the end. It will make things run much more smooth. There can be a half hour to 45 minutes at the end set aside for Q&A if it is running on time.
Title: Re: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: smaxber on April 25, 2013, 09:06:04 PM
OK so we can all agree that asking questions in the middle can be counter productive right?
but waiting till the end can be confusing...so I would think the best way to go about this would be to have ppl email their questions in advance (although we all know most wont-even I do not know what exactly to ask I usually figure out my questions after hearing something that I find confusing or needs more explanation) and Dan can then put them together and answer them as he goes through the material in addition to having a 10-15 minutes MAX after each topic for any additional questions. If its something covered maybe refer them to DDF but then the forums will be flooded by  noobs following the seminar (dont think greatest idea but definitely preach on how helpful DDF is-maybe they'll get the hint)  but then again I feel Dan will be covering most of these questions since it is a beginner level.

I guess send out a tweet saying "WARNING: DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF REGISTERED ATTENDEES, THERE WILL BE LIMITED TIME FOR Q&A...please email your questions to *insert email* and I will try to assess them during my lecture. then and only then may you ask a question so as to make this seminar as efficient as possible...

I think is one of the best ways to go about this....please feel free to edit it. but IMO have them write their questions down and hold till the end of each topic/entire seminar

Title: Re: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: lfas25 on April 25, 2013, 09:10:00 PM
I think you should accept questions before via email or hand written and you / DDFer will review them and take the ones that you think will be most helpful and bring them up during the seminar, or to help prove a point with the question etc

As well as accept questions at the end of the seminar, this way you could get more personal as well.

I don't get it. It's like watching a movie. If you have a question or get lost in the middle, hold it out till the end. Of course if your a really nOOn you will have questions, but that's part of it. I don't feel it's right for others to ask questions in middle. If Dan wants to take the time after, that's a different story.
Title: Re: Host A DansDeals Seminar?
Post by: Mordy2 on April 25, 2013, 09:15:25 PM
IMO, the best way to address as many people's questions without spending too much time answering questions after each topic,  is to have participants email their questions beforehand. These questions should be answered after each topic and then have a Q&A session at the end...

How about having a moderator like a veteran DDF'er taking questions via email and handwritten during the seminar. He can then pass along the good ones to Dan to be addressed.

Good can be something asked by many people, or something important that many can benefit from.

This will weed out the real noob questions, and the ones that only pertain to a single attendee.

If you have questions in middle either wait till end and pray Dan will pick you to ask your question or sign up to ddf and ask the question. What's so hard to understand? A question in middle of the seminar might help someone but it will lose a lot more ppl then help.

No one can build rome in a day but wtvr. Though she was so impressed with the whole outlook of the seminar. Like she said its like Donald trump giving a seminar.

on a united award ticket if you miss one of ur stopover flights what happens.
example: nyc to ord to lax,  lax -nyc so in ord u only have a stopover of 24 hours what happens if u miss this flight (the ord-lax) does the whole rest of the ticket cancel? since i want to be in Chicago more then 24 hours ?thanks

If I attend, I'll remain anonymous.
Will only have to scan the elite status upon entry for such benefits as first checked footrest chair free, unlimited seltzer, access to stand behind the stage (for those who know the place and the local mentality), get an autograph and stand up to roam around and block the presentation, particularly in front of the projector.

I'm not a noob. Been following the site and forum for quite some years and yes i meant the masses. My wife's family have 10 kids and would only dream of going to israel with the whole fam and had there dreams come true besides tons of people I know that went to israel for the first time and were blown away. So yes it was the best deal that the masses could benefit from.

I was online until about 12:30AM and did not receive an instruction email then. I received the email this morning and immediately did the paypal. I looked on the main site before I did the paypal and it still showed that it was open. Now it shows it was closed at 11AM.

Sounds to me like you should be good.
I believe the "closed" you are referring to is new applicants, not that it's too late for last night's applicants to finish the process.

It's not an automated process, somebody is manually matching up donations to reservations etc. it all takes time. Have a little patience...

As an intermediate, I would like to request that you spend a fair amount of time on how to find award travel. Since the seminar was sold out fairly quickly, I think it is safe to say that your most devoted chassidim took advantage. That being the case, it is doubtful that there will be many beginners. Therefore, and I admit that I am speaking for myself, I would appreciate it if the seminar was geared to an intermediate/advanced audience. Finding award travel is my challenge at the present time.

That is some very interesting logic. I have no clue what "devoted chassidim have to do with filling up quickly? Plus it didn't fill up so fast as many people reserves and never paid... Either way its was advertised for begginers even if there is 1 begginer I feel Dan would be bound to give it on a begginer level. Fact is the majority are for sure beginners IMHO

I, even though im ashamed ;) , will admit that i am a beginner. Not only that, but i am coming with about 10 others who are beginners as well. So your logic didn't work out this time. Sorry.

As an intermediate, I would like to request that you spend a fair amount of time on how to find award travel. Since the seminar was sold out fairly quickly, I think it is safe to say that your most devoted chassidim took advantage. That being the case, it is doubtful that there will be many beginners. Therefore, and I admit that I am speaking for myself, I would appreciate it if the seminar was geared to an intermediate/advanced audience. Finding award travel is my challenge at the present time. Thank you.
Can't experts just come to learn on DDF?
Why don't you just post your question in the right thread and you'll get a answer

I'm a DDFer yet only starting out. Maybe next time he can do that.
