Happy New Year from North Lake Tahoe

Posted by Simon Leung in Google, Occasions, Personal, Travel, Updates, Videos on December 31st, 2007 | No Comments

Hello and Happy New Year from Hunter’s Lakefront, a cabin rental from Tahoe Luxury Properties in North Lake Tahoe!

For the past few days, I have been spending the last remaining days of 2007 here in Tahoe with a couple of my best Google buddies and our friends, hanging out at the cabin, doing some snowboarding, playing in the snow, driving around town and dining at some of the finest restuarants in the area.

And tonight (in just a few hours, in fact), we will be ringing in the New Year 2008 together at the Hard Rock Cafe in South Lake Tahoe.

Here’s a snapshot of my buddy, David DiNucci, and I on New Year’s Eve:

Here’s another one of us during one of our group dinners:

Here’s yet another one of us in front of our cabin right before heading out to the slopes.

Here is one more of us on New Year’s night:

As we say goodbye to 2007, I’ve had some time to reflect on some of my goals that I had set for my first full year in business (see my 2007 resolutions here), as well as what I have achieved over the past 12 months.

My actual accomplishments of 2007 includes launching my premier successful home study course, holding teleseminars and webinars with other marketing experts, speaking engagements across the country and across the world, building a team of over a dozen high performing superstars, organizing my own workshops, and completing my book manuscript and getting it accepted for publication by a New York Publishing Company.

Yes, 2007 has definitely exceeded my expectations on so many different levels – Never had I imagined an opportunity where I can work at home if I wanted to, or travel to places I have never been before as part of my business.

So it is a little bitter sweet as I make my final blog post of the year, but it only means that I have many more exciting new posts to look forward to in the year to come.

And my resolution for 2008?

Well, I plan to make this year my best year yet (I know, not much to compare it to… I’ve only been in business for one year haha)!

But to make 2008 even better, I plan to start up a couple new businesses in China and Singapore, become a best selling author, build an even bigger team, create more information products, get involved more in Web 2.0 technology, focus more on niche marketing, organize more workshops, create more joint ventures, expand my branding Internationally and partner up with the right people to do new things that I never dreamed of doing before.

Exciting indeed, and if you want to embark on this venture with me, and perhaps set out to accomplish some of your own business goals, I welcome you to join me by commenting on this post or contacting me privately here.

And of course, I am always looking for more sharp and like-minded individuals to join my team and get involved in real Internet Marketing projects with me.

In the meantime, I’ve put together a quick video from the slopes of Squaw Valley here in Tahoe that you can view below.

Enjoy the video, and I wish you a successful, joyous and prosperous 2008 … HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Two Sides of Traffic Workshop in San Diego, CA

Posted by Simon Leung in Promotion, Seminars, SEO, Streaming, Travel, Updates on December 14th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from room 1011 of the Embassy Suites Hotel at the Two Sides of Traffic Workshop in sunny San Diego, CA!

  
The Two Sides of Traffic Workshop is my first collaboration with Howie Schwartz, and the objective of this event is to combine both Google’s organic listings with the paid search (the two sides of traffic).

Howie Schwartz and I presented together as well as individually, which included presentations, hot seats, Q&A sessions and live demonstrations.

My personal favorite demonstration has to be the video clip Howie Schwartz and I recorded above.

Literally at the last minute, we decided to take on the challenge of recording a video live on stage, and seeing how quickly we can get that video indexed by Google.

With the help of Mike Koenigs, we used Traffic Geyser to submit the video and within less than 26 minutes, the video already got top 10 rankings on Google!

As I explained how I witnessed the magic happen right before my eyes to the attendees, we refreshed the page and saw that an additional website has been indexed on the first page of Google.

Man, this Traffic Geyser is no joke – it really works!

(By the way, I just checked the rankings again moments ago and our video has dominated the top five spots on Google already!)

Other VIP guests for the Two Sides of Traffic Workshop includes Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Mark Widawer, Jason Moffatt, Rex Wisehart and Ryan Kaltman (from The Rich Jerk).

Overall, we have received some very positive responses from the attendees about our Two Sides of Traffic Workshop.

The atmosphere was very positive, and in addition to learning some great content, there were also some great networking opportunities, as well.

Tomorrow is the Lead Supreme Workshop with Howie Schwartz and Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, which promises to be another day full of amazing content.

Unfortunately, I can’t stick around and need to leave San Diego tonight because I need to head out to Las Vegas at 6 in the morning.

That’s right – I don’t waste any time… The adventures of a traveling Internet Marketer is truly living life in the fast lane :)

Anik Singal and Jeremy Palmer’s PPC Classroom Live

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates, Videos on December 1st, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1054 of the Westin Hotel in Las Vegas for Anik Singal and Jeremy Palmer’s PPC Classroom in Las Vegas, NV!

As you can see in the video clip below, this is not one of my “traditional” presentations…

  
You may notice that I am not dressed in my patented speaking attire, that I have a piece of paper in my hand, and the way that I entered the stage is just different (for those of you who have seen me speak before).

That’s because the video clip above actually shows Anik Singal introducing me to the stage for a closed door secret “bonus” session after hours that was not originally part of the PPC Classroom Live agenda.

In fact, most of the PPC Classroom Live attendees did not even know I was going to be there until that very morning.

And – It wasn’t a traditional presentation with PowerPoint slides…

For 90 minutes, I had an interactive and live Q&A chat with the PPC Classroom Live audience answering their specific questions and giving them actionable items they can take today to maximize their Quality Score.

Towards the end of the video clip, you may have heard the first words that came out of my mouth: “I’m tired.”

The reason I was tired was not only because I had flown to Las Vegas to attend PPC Classroom Live directly from Singapore, but my entire journey, as a result of layovers, bad weather, delays and even cancellations, actually took me 45 hours to complete.

And without getting very much sleep during my travel time, I had been up for a while – So at the time that I was making my way up to the stage to give my PPC Classroom Live presentation, I was actually feeling kind of numb and a little delirious!

That’s OK though, because oddly enough, from the feedback I received after my talk, the overall consensus is that I had overdelivered in value, and many people who have heard me speak before actually said that it was the best presentation I’ve ever done.

Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing – Maybe I should stay up for two days again the next time I’m presenting. ;)
