Hello from Room 2907 of The Northam All Suite hotel in Penang, Malaysia, where we have just completed our free preview seminars for the My AdWordsInternet Marketing Workshop.

My AdWords Free Preview Seminar

The My AdWords Workshop is my first official partnership with local Penang native and fellow Internet Marketer, Patric Chan, and the exciting thing is that we already have several more upcoming events in the plans, where we will expand more of our Internet Marketing content all across Malaysia!

This is also my first trip to Penang, and despite being exhausted from over 25 hours of travel from San Francisco to Hong Kong and to Singapore before finally landing in Penang, we had our first My AdWords free preview seminar within just 2 hours after my arrival.

After a much needed good night’s rest, Patric Chan and his wife Emily Chan spent the next day taking me around Penang to explore the city.

They were very gracious hosts, driving Cassey Lim and I around town and even hitting up some exquisite local Penang seafood!

The relaxing day proved wonders as we proceeded to prepare for our second preview seminar of the trip, where Patric Chan and I actually tripled our response rate from day one, selling out seats to the first ever My AdWords Workshop scheduled in 2 weeks right here in Penang.

So the show is on – the first ever My AdWords Workshop will be held in Penang, Malaysia, on February 21st and 22nd!

This concludes my first trip to Penang, and I’ll be spending the next two weeks back in Singapore until I return for the My AdWords Workshop.

Before leaving Penang, Patric Chan and I did get the chance to sit down for an interview on Google AdWords…

This is 18 minutes of 100% pure content… no fluff or funny stuff… and you can watch the whole thing for free right here.

Internet Success Program Preview Seminar One

Hello from Room 732 of the York Hotel in Singapore, where I’ve just returned to my hotel room from my first Internet Success Program preview seminar!

 With barely enough room to breathe only 24 hours of concluding my three day AdWords Workshop in San Jose, I was boarding a flight to Singapore for my next adventure.This time, I am in Singapore to hold my first workshop called the “Internet Success Program” alongside Ewen Chia, who is known all across the Internet Marketing community as the leading super affiliate.

It took about 21 hours of travel time for me to get from San Francisco to Singapore, and when I finally arrived at around 1pm, I was greeted by Ewen Chia and Stuart Tan, who had just arrived home from the states as well just 10 hours prior.

With barely any time to spare, we checked into the York Hotel, which will be my home for the next two weeks, grabbed a quick bite, and I immediately went to work that evening, holding my first ever preview seminar for the Internet Success Program in front of the Singapore audience.

A total of about 155 people responded to the marketing done by Ewen Chia about the Internet Success Program preview seminar, and for about two hours, Ewen and I shared the stage and gave the audience some good information about building an Internet Marketing business.

 After the Internet Success Program preview seminar, I was pretty wiped out, and Ewen Chia, along with his wife, Irene Pua, were kind enough to drop me off back at the York Hotel, where I’m going to call it a night.Tomorrow, I will have a full agenda, hanging out more with Ewen Chia, Stuart Tan, and I even plan on meeting up with my friend, Jacyln Chan, at the Singapore Expo.

Should be an exciting day…

Google AdWords Workshop 2 in San Jose, CA

Hello from the Governor D conference room of the Holiday Inn Airport at the 2nd AdWords Workshop in sunny San Jose, CA!

adwords workshop
This is my second AdWords Workshop that I’ve organized on my own, and I must say that the support I’ve received from all my friends has hands-down made this better than the last, and will make this one extremely difficult to beat.

First off, the caliber of expert speakers we had at the AdWords Workshop were simply amazing – even *I* was blown away by who I was able to get to grace my stage!

I’m talking about Internet Marketing legends and rockstars like (photos taken from Blackberry Curve and sent to Twitter)…

Visit their websites – they are true Internet Marketing rockstars and have just a ton of immense value to bring to the table… I couldn’t help but take pages and pages of notes at my own event!

For the core part of the AdWords Training, we covered specific optimization strategies pertaining to landing pages, keywords, ad text and account structure, followed by hands-on and interactive sessions with not only real-life examples of my best performing campaigns, but we also worked with attendees to review their accounts and even create brand new campaigns from scratch live on stage.

The overall consensus is that the live demonstrations were the most valuable because even though the content was great, they wanted to see the strategies implemented in actual campaigns from which they can learn.

Thus, we did just that, and this has contributed to a large part of the AdWords Workshop’s success for the weekend.

And of course, none of this would have been possible in the first place if it weren’t for the help of my team…

So I’d like to publicly thank Alejandro Reyes – who put together the keynote and set the stage for the weekend, Kevin Finney – who facilitated and helped on stage during the interactive sessions and closing presentation, Andy Huang – who put together the weekend’s outline and took care of all the nitty gritty details, John Guanzon and his lovely wife Jessica – who helped organize the venue for the event, and special thanks to Amanda Swigert, who stepped up unscheduled and helped us out with everything from assistant duties to running the videos.

In this business, it’s not just the knowledge that you learn and apply, but also the relationships that you build.

I honestly had more fun at the AdWords Workshop this past weekend than any organizers should be allowed to have at their own events, and I owe it all to my friends who were able to bring this much value to our small group of awesome attendees.

Throughout the weekend, we had live streaming shows, exquisite meals, masterminds, social marketing experiences and just an overall good time with everyone at restaurants and bars (click here to view all my real-time Twitter updates from the weekend).

A quick note on the power of social marketing – on our live stream, we attracted over 50 viewers including Rich Schefren, Ed Dale, Jason Moffatt, Deborah Micek, Justin Brooke and Donna Fox…

In fact, Donna Fox made her decision to come to San Jose based on witnessing how much fun we were having, and she literally decided on Friday that she was going to come on Saturday!

And as Donna Fox and everyone else in attendance at the AdWords Workshop can attest, it was very well worth the trip…

We literally have raving testimonials from every single person who attended the AdWords Workshop, and even though I don’t know when I’m going to have a next one because I’m booked solid for the next foreseeable future (quite possibly six months or more), I definitely want to re-live the weekend sometime soon.

If you’d like to join us for the next AdWords Workshop and spend a fun and productive weekend learning and creating new relationships, keep up-to-date with any announcements we might have by joining our priority pre-notification list at www.AdWordsWorkshop.com

See You At The Next One!

Google AdWords Workshop in San Jose, CA

Hello from the Governor’s House B Conference Room at the Holiday Inn San Jose (formerly Hyatt San Jose) at my very first Google AdWords Workshop in San Jose, California!

AdWords Workshop Sign

After being on the Internet Marketing speaking circuit for over 15 months, I have finally decided to do my own event, which includes guests who came here from Italy, Monaco, Hawaii, and all over the country, and even people who drove 800 miles and took the Greyhound to be here.

The reason I decided to host an AdWords Workshop now is that even though I enjoy teaching on stage, I knew that there was a lot more that I wanted to accomplish, and the 60 or 90 minutes that I usually get up there are simply not enough.

So – I had this grand idea of putting together a 3 day content packed and interactive AdWords Workshop, and with the help of my team, Alejandro Reyes, Andy Huang, John Guanzon, Matt Ellsworth, Kevin Finney, Leo de Leon, Robert Secades, Daniel Arzuaga, Lisa Weinberger, Garrett Leyenaar and Toki Tover, we made it happen this weekend in my home turf.

Speaking for 3 days straight with 10 presentations is a lot of work, and I was thrilled that my fellow team members Alejandro Reyes, John Guanzon, Matt Ellsworth, Kevin Finney, Leo de Leon, Lisa Weinberger, Robert Secades and Daniel Arzuaga volunteered some stage time.

It was the first time speaking for many of them, so I was happy to offer them the opportunity, and proud as well because they all did a great job.

In addition, we also had a few other guest speakers, including conversion expert Mark Widawer, new media expert Deborah Micek, marketing makeover expert Tracy Repchuk, investment expert Johnnie Siu, and product development experts Rod Beckwith and Huey Lee.

There are also some pretty successful AdWords experts in the audience as well, including Chris Loch, who is here representing Alex Mandossian, and Mauricio Martinez, who is here representing David Garfinkel.

All in all, the presentations were good, but based on the feedback on the audience, it seems like they benefitted the most from the interactive exercises, which was good feedback to have so I know to allocate more time for them in future workshops.
