Been meaning to write this post. On the 2nd of June, I attended a workshop by Ewen Chia. There were about 17 to 18 people in the class. The main show was definitely Ewen Chia, one of the top affiliate marketers in the world. With a subscribers’ list of over 300,000 people, I decided to do a small calculation on his sales volume. I guess just a mere 1% on a USD $27 product will bring in $81,000. And conservatively, if I would to assume that he pays out 75% of the commission to his affiliates, he would still get USD$20,250. WOW! Haha, correct me if my calculations are wrong but even if it is USD $10,000, or USD $5,000, I would be damn happy for myself. Ok, ok, I know I must work hard.
Through the workshop, I also met Ethan, who is a student of Ewen Chia. His blog is at www.whatsimplyworks.com. He is already making a 4 figure income from being a full time affiliate marketer and he just started writing his blog to share his experiences. I think very soon, his name will be shining through the internet marketing community.
And congratulations to Hannie, you can check out her blog at http://platinum-cash.blogspot.com/. She has already started seeing sales coming in for her after she attended Ewen Chia’s workshop. It’s all about action and she is indeed action-bound. Shame on me, I have been attending so many workshops that I am too tired (Yes I know, excuses, excuses). Writing a few articles and yet to launch it on ezinesarticles yet.
Actually, I realise a point after attending some of the workshops. Let me specify what I have attended some far.
4 Days of World Internet Summit in Singapore
1 Day Brett McFall’s Lightbulb workshop
1 Day Ewen Chia workshop
1 night at Stuart Tan’s subscriber’s night.
And you know which is the biggest impact on me?
It was actually Stuart Tan’s subscriber’s night. Just go to www.internetmarketingsingapore.com to find out more. This website/forum/blog allows participants to learn from each other about making money online. Highly recommended to join as it is a very vibrant community in the local Singapore scene. Why do I say that?
Simple, in the other workshops I attended, everyone was asking how to do it, or feel sceptical, and in the subscriber’s night, I met people whom truly have success in the internet marketing scene. Let me list down the people I remember.
First up, this guy was the first person I spoke to is elscorpius. He is known as the love guru. Found out about his ventures from being almost broke, then becoming a ghostwriter in elance.com and then using the money earned, created his website, his own product and his monthly income is in the $5k range. He really taught me about internet marketing, how to find my niche and ask me to join the internetmarketingsingapore forum as well. Must really say thank you to elscorpius. (Oh yah, he is only 22 years old, still studying too. Entrepreneurs just keep getting younger and younger.)
Next up elscorpius introduce Jhong Ren, with his wedding blog at http://www.romance-fire.com/. He told me he writes about 3 articles a day. His blog is a page rank 4 now. Amazing! I did not even know wedding blogs can be a niche market as well. He is also one of the administrators in the forum as well. Learnt a lot from him as well.
Next up will be Andrew Wee. His blog is www.whoisandrewwee.com and his page rank is 5. Another amazing man and his blogs are always very insightful. He shared his experience on making money via the forums and he prefers making money on affiliate marketing, rather than trying to earn from adsense. Meeting him in person was really an experience, though the conversation was short, at least finally I got to meet him in person.
Then there is this man who calls himself Dr.Ebay in the forum. His real name is Ben and he makes his millions via Ebay. I did not really get a chance to talk to him but he is really amazing. On first sight, he looked very ordinary, but the moment he voices his views, all I can say is WOW! He does not mind people learning from him but I heard, the condition is that you must write a check and give it to SPCA, which is an organisation to protect cruelty against animals in Singapore. Oh yah, another condition is that he must like you.
This is the main man for the forum. He just released a book in Singapore call “The Secrets Of Internet Millionaires“, which I bought and was a good read. His niche was to focus on creating a local scene for Singapore and Malaysia budding entrepreneurs. The moment he decided to start his journey into internet marketing, he has got to known all the different experts. After the subscriber’s night on Tuesday, he was already doing a tele-seminar with Rosalind Gardner, another renown internet marketer who has made her mark as a affiliate marketer in the dating scene. He is a NLP expert and now his target is to create 15,000 internet marketers in Singapore by the end of year 2007. Great guy.
So enough of writing, if you are thinking of learning more about internet marketing, you can definitely learn a lot. Find a mentor there. Or if you are already an established expert, join the forum and help those who are sincere in internet marketing to be a success like you too.
