New Year Resolution 2008!


This will be my last post for year 2007. Another one and 1 hour, we will move to another Year! I am so excited about 2008, i do not know why? But really looking forward for 2008.

I believe everyone have a new year resolution. Whether you have achieved it or not, it is another question. My guru told me that, always aims high. If you aim for the star, at least you will hit the moon.


For me last year 2007, definitely a good year for me. I fire my boss and become my own boss. It is not a easy feeling when you first start on your own. You have to work smart and plan your schedule ahead. Because at the end of the month, no one is going to pay you salary except yourself!


You need to ready "Focus" and "Never Give Up Attitude". If found any challenge, always "ASK" for help. Success is a journey!


All of this, the most important element is
"Do What You love". If not, you will one day give up your business.

Ok, that about last year, what i gonna achieve this year 2008?

1. Publish my "Internet Marketing for Malaysia"physical book

2. Have my first baby, twin if possible!

3. Buy a MPV car for my family.

4. Buy my double storey link house.

5. Doing Internet Marketing Preview for public

6. Become No.1 internet coaching program in Malaysia

7. Appear in Newspaper about my Internet Program

8. Train & coach 100 entrepreneur to make money online

9. Make RM 100k/year


10. Attend more seminar and read more book.


12. Take Akido lesson


13. Buy a Ogawa Chair for my father


14. Eat Healthy food and more exercise.

This is all my resolution for year 2008. I am not sure how many i can achieve. Let's come back 1 year later and see this post.

How about you? Do you have any New Year Resolution to share?

Yahoo! US Auction sites are Closed!


This morning, i browse through a Yahoo Auction site and thing of selling some junk item. What i found out is the US & Canada Auction site is closed! Not sure what is the reason.

However Yahoo Auction at Hong Kong, Singapore & Taiwan still remain active. I believe that Ebay is still the leader in Auction site. Alexa statistics show that, they are rank no 21 as a most popular site search in the world.

I would suggest if you plan to sell something online, use Ebay as a starting point. You know why?
First it is FREE to register, second you do not need to create a website and third,you do not have to spend time and money to generate traffic to your site. Everything is ready for you, you just need to find a niche product to sell.

Hope this Tips Help!

A bit about my workshop I conduct,it is a very interactive, you need have your own laptop ,off course with WIFI capability. If I just talk for 2 hours, I believe you will fall asleep by then!

For internet workshop details you can go to Asia Internet Marketing Academy.

http://www.asiainternetmarketingacademy.com/

Treat your online business as a Business itself. Work on your business and NOT in your business. Spend time and effort on it. Do no expect to make ton of money just learn from the book or 2-3 days workshop.

Internet business is NO different from offline business,you need to spend time to learn and build your empire, especially for newbie. You heard people making USD 10k ,20k or 50K in 1 day right? but do you know that how long they take to master the skills before he/she achieve this result. It might be 2-5 years! That right!

My guru KCC teach me that, work for your passion and money will come. Now, I really understand what it means. People will pay you for what you have or what it call intellectual property.

What is the difference between Training & Coaching?


For most of the people, it might look the same. But let me clarify, both of them are completely different. Based on wikipedia Training is refers to the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as a result of the teaching of vocational or practical skills and knowledge that relates to specific useful skills.

Training is where you learn the soft skill or I would say that the fundamental. For example, if you like to play golf, will you go straight to the game before learn what to swing the golf clubs? Of course No!

First you must equip yourself with basics training skills, learnt how to swing the golf club, understand the rules of the game etc.

“Coaching” is more personal (1-3 people in a group or sometimes is one to one). They will guide you step by step to ensure you doing the correct thing. Coach do not make decision for you, they can only guide you. You have to pick up the ball and hit it yourself.

Also coach is not necessary better than you. Let take the example of Andrew Agassi. He has a personal coach. If both of them playing tennis, guess who will win? Definitely Andrew!

So why he need a coach? The bottom line is coach is to guide you and not doing job for you!

You might wonder why do i talking about this subject and what it going to do with internet marketing?

Ok, I have been pleasure to be invited by one of my guru KC See to help him in internet coaching club that will start on August. I am so excited that I can share my internet skills with others. “The More You Learn,The More You Earn”

My advise is learn the basics skill before venture to any business. If not, you got cheated also you do not know what happen!

Is Making Money Online taxable in Malaysia?


I believe a lot of people staying in Malaysia is wondering whether they have to pay tax for money they earn via website example selling product at Ebay, Goggle Adsense, online trading etc.

Prior to 2001, all income which comes from outside Malaysia will be tax. After the new ruling, all income from international are tax exempt. It is to encourage Malaysian to bring oversea money into Malaysia.

But it must fulfill these requirements :

1) The source of money must from outside Malaysia (Adsense, Ebay )
2) The customers must be outside Malaysia

For website based income, this is the incentive.

Para 13. Tax Incentives For Offshore Trading Via Websites
Income received by companies undertaking offshore trading via websites in Malaysia will be taxed at a concessionary rate of 10% for a period of 5 years, on condition it is approved by the Minister of Finance. Income after tax distributed to shareholders is also exempted from tax.

Blogging and Big Bucks!

Today, I come across a newspaper article and spot this ads that inspired me to read on. The topic is about “Blogging and Big Bucks”.

The article is talking about how you can use blog for advertising. What is the feature of blogging and how much you can make out of it?

Some people make big buck of money and some don’t? why is this happen?

A common ads that most people do is via goggle adsense. Ads that pay you based on pay per click, cost per thousand impressions & cost per action.

When blogging, people can see whether you are writing sincerely or just the sake of money. If your blog does not have a good content, it will eventually lost the viewer. So, the advise is be serious when Blogging!

Online ads is a big business in America but in Malaysia it is still a small business model as we yet to have a habits of online purchasing.

Global company such as Sony,LG and Intel already know the potential of online ads and blog advertising, but in Malaysia people still rely on print ads like newspaper. It will take sometime before blog ads become popular.

What do you think about online ads? Do share with me if any. Thanks

Cheers!

Do you know how to build a successful Online Business Model?

I just went through a few series of book and video tutorial by this guy call Rich Schefren. He is the guru of all the Internet guru if you are talking about how to build a successful online business model.

A lot of well known Internet guru is coached by him, for example Joel Comm, Google Adsense guru is one of his students.

One of his books “The Final Chapter” information really blown me away. You can get the Book for FREE at www.StrategicProfits.com

According to Rich Schefren, in order to build a successful online businesses , you must have 7 important elements. If you miss out anyone of them, I guarantee your business will not last for really long. That is why you heard people say that 80% of the business is closed in the first 5 year and the remaining 20% is out for the next 5 years.

There are 7 major components that determine whether your business is going to success or failure.

Vision=>Strength=>Passion=>Resources=>Alliance Partners=>Powerful Tactics=>Action Plan

If you have all the 7 important element, you are in the right track, you are building a successful online business model. Let say now, you miss one of the component “Vision”.

“Vision” is how you foresee your business grow in future. Will it be number 1 in the market place or just an ordinary company? If you do not have “Vision” , you definitely do not have any ideas where you are heading and that will lead to “Confusion”.

If you do not have “Strength”, you will feel “Anxiety” as other people is more knowledgeable. One day, they might take over your business. Strength is what you good at and do better the most.

If you do not have “Passion”, what will happen to your business in long run?

The answer is “Unmotivated”. You will lack of force to move you forward. It is just like a fuel of your car. Passion is what you love to do even without any return.

“Resources” is more like a tool you need to implement your online business. You must know where and how to get your resource or contact. For example, I need a sales copy writer and you do not have any contact and do not know where to find. It will lead you to “Frustration”.

Alliance Partners” is the part I like most. If you want to grow your business faster, you need to have to work with someone. You alone cannot concur the whole market. Look for partnership to work together! Partner with similar goal will lead you to success.

If you do not have “Powerful Tactics”, then you are not catching up with your competitor. You are going to loose in the battle field. Other people are enjoying catching the big fish and you only get a small fish. This problem will lead to “Poor Result”.

Alright, now come to the last part call “Action Plan”. If you miss out element, nothing is going to move and you are still who you are. Talk is Cheap!

To get the full version discuss about this critical element. Get the Free book at

The Most Effective Opt In offers

This weeks, I would like to discuss some of the common compelling opt in offer you can provide to build your list and increase sales.

Free Newsletter

This is the most common and powerful techniques to follow up with your subscriber. If they given you their first name and email, it means that they are interested to know what you have to offer to them. They want to know more from you!

Research has been shown that series of newsletter can help to build a credible relationship with your customer. This means more sales for you.

Free Series of Report

This is another way to establish a credible relationship and brand yourself as an expert in particular subject. The report can be in 1 page or more as long as it provides quality information to them. DO NOT sell anything at your report. If your report is full of junk information and do not benefit to them, you will lost your credibility. In other words, your Free report is not going to make any sales for you!

Free Ebook

A Free Ebook can also be given out to exchange for first name and email. Ebook must be at least 5 to 10 pages long. Again DO NOT sell in your Ebook and ensure provide them quality contents. If you too busy or too lazy to write quality contents, your subscriber can easily know from your write up. The bottom line is write a quality contents!

Free Download

If you are selling software online, you can offer a “Free Trial” software for your subscriber. With the collected email, you can offer them a full version with a discounted price.

For the above Opt-in techniques, you can use Autoresponder to do all the follow up email for you. It is a great tool to use.

By the way, do not forget to let them to unsubscribe from your list anytime, if not you will be accused for spamming.

Hope above information will help you to build a list and generate sales.

The Biggest Mistakes in Internet Marketing

They are always people asking how to start online business? What to sell online? How do I know people will buy from me and how much can I make? How to received payment and etc…..

For this articles, I am only going to discuss on “Supply “and “Demand” principle.

For other questions, you can find the answer in my Blog Archives.

I believe a lot people have heard about the concept of “Supply vs Demand” right? If there is a demand, definitely there will be supply.

However when come to online business, a lot of internet marketer eventually ignore this part. They think of creating an “Ultimate Product” to sell online. Product that no one is selling except themself. In other words, No Competitor!

They believe the “Ultimate Product” is going to make them RICH!

You know what! you are making a BIG mistakes in your life. If your product do not have any competitors at all, then it is pretty sure that is no one searching for that product as well.

A really powerful marketing tips I learned from my Internet Guru Alex Mandossian is that “Always Improve, Do Not Invent” Find a product that already available online and improved the quality or add more benefits to that existing product. You must create a Unique Selling Proposition (USP). There is where you differentiate your business from other competitor and make them buy from you over and over again.

Alright now, you know the concept of supply and demand. How do I know what are online people searching for? What keyword there type in search engine and how often they looking for certain product.

To find out the answer, I recommend Word Tracker. It is really useful tools to do keyword research for popular search engine like Google, Yahoo and MSN. You can try for the Free trial but with limited features.

Try out and I am sure you will love it.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Chinese out there a

“Prosperous Chinese New Year” and Gong Xi Fa Chai!

Cheeers!

Do you selling any information or product online? Do you have payment gateway that will accept payment online via credit card? If you do not have, you need to continuous read these articles.

Internet Business is all about “Automation”. In other words, once your online business is start up, you want it to run 24/7 and 365 days a year with little of your time and effort

You do not want to spend your time in front of computer to process any payment online and sending your products to your customer..

If you plan to make your internet business big and successful you MUST have a payment gateway.

In customer point of view, if they like your product, they want to get your product easily and fast. If you ask them to call, email and fax before any purchases is made. You are losing your customer fast.

Customer is very Impatient. The more step you ask your customer before purchasing, the less they will purchase. Survey found that you are loosing about 15 % of your potential sales.

Setting up payment online is NOT rocket science. You need find a payment gateway that will accept credit card. For myself I will recommend Pay Pal. It is easy to set up and accept payment worldwide.

You can purchases or send money to anyone with an email address in 55 countries and regions. By the way, set up a Pay Pal is FREE!

Accepting credit card online will

  • Increase Business Credibility
  • Capture Impatient buyer
  • Fully automated

As for me, they is a problem to set up Pay Pal in Malaysia. It is because when you sign up and there ask for the country you come from, surprisingly you can’t find country name “Malaysia”.

Do not ask me why? I do not know as well……..believe this is something to do with the security measurement I guess.

Ok, do these stop me from setting up Pay Pal account? The answer is NO. I can always use another Country address. I set up Pay Pal with Singapore address. By the way Singapore is Malaysia neighbour country and pay pal have an office at Singapore.

Any payment will send via cheque to Singapore. From Singapore I can ask them to send to me at Malaysia.

That is how the system works! Not rocket science right.

Start apply Pay Pal Account now and integrated to you website. Hope this information Help.

If you have any concern or questions on payment gateway, you can leave a messages in this Blog. I will try to answer your questions as soon as possible.

Cheers!

World Internet Users


Do you know which region in this world have the most internet user? Is it Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, Middle East or Australia/Oceania?

The answer is Asia! Yes it in Asia with approximately 389 million people online as Jan 2007. Follow by Europe 313 million and North America 232 million.

If you are a serious Internet Marketer, Asia is the market must tap into. China itself have about 36% user online which contribute the most to Asia region.

According to a semi-annual survey conducted by the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), as of the end of 2006 the number of Internet users in China was estimated to be 137 million, a 10.5% penetration rate.

While that penetration rate is small compared with many other countries around the globe, China ranks second only to the US in the overall number of users online.

In fact, many analysts feel that the number of Internet users in China will surpass the number of US users within two years. At the current rate of growth it is forecast that Chinese Internet users will exceed the 210 million US users by 2009.

Importantly, over 90 million of those users are already connected by broadband. While the Chinese government figures show nearly 140 million Chinese users, there are less than half that many connected computers.

Vital Wave estimates that 50% or more of the users in China connect on shared-access points, such as Internet cafes and school labs, or by hand-held mobile devises.

Until the gap between Internet usage and computer ownership in China narrows, the market opportunities for hardware and software providers will not be as prevalent as the usage numbers would normally indicate.

"Without doubt, China is a considerable current and future market opportunity for many technology companies,"

"But to tap into that market, business managers have to evaluate market data in the context of their own business model."

Access aside, the CNNIC figures show that Chinese Internet users closely resemble users around the world, though the user population does skew more male than female.

Online, the Chinese tend to do exactly the same things as the rest of the world's users: check e-mail, read the news and search for and acquire information.

For more information on Internet development in Asia, go to China Online, India Online and Japan Online reports.

How about you? Which region is the most customer buy from you? Leave me a messages if you have anything to share with me.
