Pat O’Bryan’s UnSeminar6 In San Antonio, Texas

Hello from the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk at Pat O’Bryan’s UnSeminar6 in San Antonio, Texas!

UnSeminar6 Presentation with Lee Collins

It’s great to be back on Pat O’Bryan’s stage after speaking at UnSeminar5 last year, and I can simply never get tired of visiting San Antonio and the amazing Riverwalk!

This year at UnSeminar6, I decided to do something a little different with my presentation and shared the stage with Lee Collins, whom I’ve presented with before on a few other occasions.

Together, Lee Collins and I overdelivered in two different presentation slots, first talking about how to do effective niche and market research, followed by how effective social media strategies help you rank well on Google.

In fact, we had so much information to share that we even decided to extend our presentation at the last minute, ordering pizza for the attendees so that they can stay through lunch!

There’s no doubt that the attendees got more than their money’s worth at UnSeminar6, especially since they were also able to meet and learn from other experts like Dr. Joe Vitale, Ben Mack, Craig Perrine, Wendi Friesen, Bill Hibbler, Eric Farewell, Erica Douglass, Nathan Anderson, Tony Laidig and my business partner, Andy Huang.

The SMART Seminar 2008 In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on November 10th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Rm 2203 of the Boulevard Hotel at first ever The SMART Seminar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

boulevard malaysia
The SMART Seminar 2008 in Malaysia is one of two back-to-back weekend events hosted by Stuart Tan and myself, and we’re scheduled to continue with The SMART Seminar in Singapore next week.

This past weekend in Malaysia, we kicked off The SMART Seminar with some of the most talented speakers from all around the world that I’m proud to call my friends, partners and mentors…

The SMART Seminar Malaysia Speakers

In front of a packed room full of information-hungry attendees, we were blown away by the valuable information presented by Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Donna Fox, Mike Morgan, Mark Widawer and Robert Puddy.

I’ve seen every one of these powerful speakers present before, but never have I witnessed such a tremendous flood of solid content that was shared among them than at The SMART Seminar.

As the event organizers, Stuart Tan and myself were extremely grateful to the speakers for their willingness to share not only in their individual presentations, but also the group round tables in between breaks…

The SMART Seminar Malaysia Breakout Sessions

Both the speakers and the attendees agree that these breakout sessions added a ton of addition value to The SMART Seminar experience because not only did it help the speakers build trust and relationship with the attendees, but it also gave the attendees the chance to ask each speaker questions personally in small group settings.

And even though we were truly in the presence of greatness, Stuart Tan and I were also proud to have in attendance some of Malaysia’s well-known Internet Marketers as well, including Patric Chan, Gobala Krishnan and Vince Tan.

As always, no Internet Marketing conference is complete without a speaker VIP dinner, and of course, The SMART Seminar is no exception.

On our final evening in Malaysia, the awesome folks at MindValley sponsored our evening of fun at the Kuala Lumpur Marriott, where we were joined by our good friend, the legendary Mark Joyner, who was also in town for another event.

The SMART Seminar Malaysia VIP Dinner

Overall, Stuart Tan and I believe that The SMART Seminar Malaysia this past weekend has exceeded our expectations, and we can’t wait to continue The SMART Seminar next weekend in Singapore.

However, we did have some last minute cancellations from a few of our speakers, who were unfortunately not able to make it to Asia for The SMART Seminar this time around.

Robert Puddy was a last minute replacement for Paulie Sabol, but we weren’t able to replace Ben Mack or Ross Goldberg at such short notice.

Luckily, we do have replacements for them next week in Singapore, so you’ll have to stay tuned to see who our new mystery speakers are going to be :)

Special thanks to the indispensable rockstars of my team, Andy Huang and Cassey Lim, for helping us make The SMART Seminar 2008 a success!

I look forward to updating you about The SMART Seminar 2008 in Singapore shortly, but in the meantime, here are several more fun memories of The SMART Seminar 2008 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:

Internet Marketing Hong Kong

Posted by Simon Leung in Launch, Promotion, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 7th, 2008 | No Comments

Almost two years after I registered the domain nameInternetMarketingHongKong.com on Christmas Day in 2006, Hong Kong’s version of the Internet Marketing Power Blog is finally live!

internet marketing hong kong

InternetMarketingHongKong.com Homepage

Even though I had big plans for InternetMarketingHongKong.com at the time I registered it, my hectic project load and heavy traveling schedule kept me away from focusing on these plans.

During the time since registering InternetMarketingHongKong.com, I spent almost every weekend on the road speaking at an Internet Marketing seminar somewhere around the country, and even the world.

This was essential in building my business as well as my brand, which also included working on books, digital products, home study courses, as well as live and recorded interviews (teleseminars) and video presentations (webinars).

That’s why for close to two years, InternetMarketingHongKong.com had actually been redirected to this very website, the Internet Marketing Power Blog.

However, having spent close to 50% of my schedule in Asia this year, I figured that 2008 would be a good time to launch InternetMarketingHongKong.com and to prepare for some really cool things.

As a matter of fact, I’m in Hong Kong right now, and have been traveling through Asia for close to six weeks, conducting business in Macau and various cities in China, including ShenZhen, GuangZhou, DongGuan, and ZhuHai.

My first official project with Internet Marketing Hong Kong is actually a partnership withInternet Marketing Singapore, working closely with my good friend Stuart Tan on an Internet Marketing Conference called The SMART Seminar.

The SMART Seminar is scheduled for this November in Malaysia and Singapore, and Stuart Tan and I have confirmed some of the most talented Internet Marketers from all over the world to The SMART Seminar stage.

With expert speakers like Anik Singal, Ben Mack, Donna Fox, Mike Morgan, Mark Widawer, Ross Goldberg, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and Singapore’s own Ewen Chia,The SMART Seminar is, without a doubt, going to be Asia’s most explosive conference ever.

Because this is InternetMarketingHongKong.com’s first seminar, I want to give a small number of people the opportunity to win two free tickets to The SMART Seminar.

And as a loyal reader of my Internet Marketing Power Blog, I want YOU to win these tickets…

If you’d like to win a pair of free tickets to The SMART Seminar 2008 in Malaysia or Singapore, please leave a comment on this post and tell us why you want to attend.

Make sure to leave your full name, as well as a way for us to contact you if you win…

TheSMARTSeminar.com Preview Video Call

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Launch, Promotion, Seminars, Travel, Updates, Videos on September 25th, 2008 | No Comments

Hong Kong has been in the middle of a severe storm during the past few days that has literally caused the whole city to shut down…

I’m talking about grounded public transportation, flights and ships as a result of heavy rains, thunder and winds at up to 200km caused by a T8 typhoon storm (AKA tropical cyclone).

But as we say in Internet Marketing, “the seminar must go on,” which is why Stuart Tan and I proceeded with our scheduled preview video call for The SMART Seminar(scheduled for this November in Singapore and Malaysia), he in Singapore and I in Hong Kong.

That’s right, after a two year friendship between Stuart Tan and myself that started with a private MySpace message sent to me from Stuart Tan in late 2006…

InternetMarketingSingapore.com and InternetMarketingHongKong.com (or as some people call it, “the best of both worlds” haha), finally launch their first highly anticipated collaboration by putting together Asia’s most explosive conference ever, The SMART Seminar.

The entire video interview is almost 55 minutes in length and has a lot of really important and relevant information about the value of attending live events, as well as a breakdown of all the benefits you will get from joining us at The SMART Seminar.

In addition, we also unveil our faculty line-up for The SMART Seminar, which also happens to be our very own friends, colleagues and even mentors that we hand-picked to teach at the event this November.

Our confirmed team of presenters for our first annual The SMART Seminar includes Anik Singal, Donna Fox, Paulie Sabol, Ben Mack, Mark Widawer, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Mike Morgan and hometown favorite, Ewen Chia.

Please take the time to review the video and grab some valuable training information, then hop on over to TheSMARTSeminar.com to further discover how you can benefit from this event.

On behalf of Stuart Tan and myself, we look forward to seeing you at The SMART Seminareither on November 7th – 9th in Malaysia, or November 14th – 16th in Singapore.

Three Sides Of Traffic Workshop In Long Island, NY

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Gurus, Seminars, Streaming, Travel, Updates, Videos on August 10th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 345 of the Long Island/Huntington Hilton at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop in Long Island, New York!

three sides of traffic
Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg And Simon Leung At Three Sides Of Traffic

The Three Sides of Traffic workshop is a sequel to the Two Sides of Traffic workshop I did with Howie Schwartz last December in San Diego, CA.

This time, we were joined by our good friend and fellow traffic generation expert, Ross Goldberg, and the three of us decided to team up to reveal some of our latest and most coveted traffic weapons yet.

And as a surprise bonus, we introduced an additional fourth side of traffic utilizing the power of online and offline marketing, presented by hybrid marketing experts Lee Collins and Robin Collins on the second day of the event.

3 sides of traffic

The additional speakers and content were pleasant surprises for our attendees, some of whom flew from as far as Germany to join us in New York this weekend.

We always have fun at our own workshops, especially when we are joined by fellow marketing friends, whether they attend to contribute, or even just to learn.

At the original Two Sides of Traffic workshop, we had VIPs like Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Mark Widawer, Mike Koenigs, Jason Moffatt, Ryan Kaltman and Rex Wisehart.

This weekend at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop, our VIP guests included Ken McArthur, Donna Fox, Sanyika Calloway-Boyce, as well as Mike Filsaime and several members of his team, Joe Jablonski, Jason Dinner, Michelle Galvin and Lucius Kern.

In fact, on Thursday before Three Sides of Traffic started, Ross Goldberg, Donna Fox, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and myself visited with Mike Filsaime and his team at their Long Island office.

marketingdotcom
Mike Filsaime’s MarketingDotCom.com Office In Long Island, NY

We spent the day hanging out there and entertained ourselves with foosball, movies and video games.

Back to the Three Sides of Traffic workshop itself, Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg and I felt that the content wasn’t enough, and that we should have some social proof that our teachings were more than just theory.

Just like at the original workshop where Howie Schwartz and I demonstrated video marketing, we decided at the very last minute to do another live demonstration, this time the power of Web 2.0 technology and social media – just to prove that these strategies actually work (and to have a little fun).

An impromptu decision was made to actually take our workshop on the air with UStream, and we didn’t even really get the word out about the show until literally within about 10 minutes before we were scheduled to go live!

Implementing just a few of the social marketing tactics covered during the first half of day one, the attendees began using Twitter, Facebook and email to begin spreading the word about our live show.

Despite the time constraint we were working with, we still managed to get close to 400 unique viewers from all over the world (including Singapore, Spain, UK, Australia, and Canada) watching our show within just several minutes of notice!

We even had special visits from our expert friends like Tom Beal, Ben Mack, Pat O’Bryan, Jason Moffatt, Alejandro Reyes and Lasse Rouhiainen, just to name a few.

And as the show went on, more and more viewers joined us, and before the weekend was over, we had almost 600 views to our Ustream channel.

The viewers were also very much into the interaction, so we also had an extremely interactive chatroom that remained active during the show, and over 60 people actually remained in the room to chat even hours after we went off the air, which goes to show just how powerful social media is for traffic generation today, and will continue to be.

As a matter of fact, the sudden influx of visitors flocking to view our Three Sides of Traffic show impacted the streaming activity so much, that our show actually made it to the FRONT PAGE of Ustream while we were still live!

Oh, and that didn’t just happen once…

Our show made it to the homepage of Ustream AGAIN the next day when we went live on the air for the second time:

ustream.tv
UStream.tv Homepage On Saturday Featuring Three Sides Of Traffic In Front

Hey, I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty darn cool! :)

Also, take a look at just some of the Twitter activity we had with a few of the most popular Three Sides of Traffic related searches this weekend:

If you didn’t get the chance to experience the Three Sides of Traffic workshop live with us this weekend in Long Island, we’re bummed that you couldn’t be a part of all the fun we had.

However, it’s not the end of the world because the entire weekend’s content was recorded, and you’ll be able to not only access it, but also get full resale rights to it by taking advantage of our special offer that we made available to attendees and viewers

Next year, Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg and I plan to return again with the Four Sides of Traffic, and this time, our friends Lee Collins and Robin Collins are going to be an official part of it.

This means that the Four Sides of Traffic promises to contain even more of the newest and most effective traffic strategies for 2009, so definitely stay tuned for more information on that.

Pat O’Bryan’s UnSeminar 5 In San Antonio, Texas

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Updates on July 27th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1170 of the Drury Plaza Hotel at Pat O’Bryan’s UnSeminar 5 in San Antonio, Texas!

simon leung

It’s great to return to San Antonio since my very first Internet Marketing seminar in May of 2006, as well as my first speaking engagement three months later in August, also happened right here in San Antonio.

But this time, it was a much more exciting experience…

In front of a jam packed room, I had the honor of sharing the stage with Dr. Joe Vitale, Craig Perrine, Bill Hibbler, Ben Mack, Donna Fox, Eric Farewell, Scott Lewis, Tony Laidig, Erica Douglass, and of course, Pat O’Bryan himself.

As with most seminars, the live networking at UnSeminar 5 was amazing, especially with the killer line-up of speakers and motivated attendees.

However, you know that time has definitely changed when the power of Web 2.0 not only brought on an additional 150 viewers from all around the world through live streaming…

But Twitter (one of the most popular Web 2.0 social marketing tools available today for networking) was also responsible for selling 1/3 of the tickets to the event, as well as booking several of the speakers!

Plus, throughout the weekend, we continued to network both online and offline, getting more and more people to sign up for Web 2.0 profiles like TwitterFacebookMySpace,YouTube and more.

UnSeminar 5 was probably one of the most interactive Internet Marketing conferences I’ve been a part of that encouraged so many people to take action, whether or not they were live at the actual event.

I personally had a lot of fun not only at the conference itself, but the most invaluable experiences of all was the opportunity to hang out with speakers and attendees alike for lunch, dinner and throughout the evenings at the Riverwalk, Alamo and some of the more happening downtown areas.

Now, because my camera is broken (boo) and I haven’t gotten a replacement yet, I’m now at the mercy of my friends who did take photos to send them to me.

But while we wait for them, here are a few TwitPics (photo service for Twitter) that my friends and I took on our phones and posted online throughout the weekend…

Special thanks to my friends for making this a weekend to remember: Donna Fox, Eric Farewell, Ben Mack, James Wedmore, Heather Duease, Marlon Sanders, Erica Douglass, Pat O’Bryan, Scott Lewis, Joe Vitale, Craig Perrine, Bill Hibbler and Tony Laidig.

I’m sure I’ll be seeing you guys around, especially if you’re interested in attending some of my future events in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

But if you don’t want to wait that long or travel that far (depending on where you’re located), you can catch me at my final U.S. workshop this year on August 8th and 9th in Long Island, NY, when Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg and I host the Three Sides Of Traffic Workshop.

Google AdWords Workshop 2 in San Jose, CA

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Updates on June 15th, 2008 | No Comments

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)…

 eric farewell

 alejandro reyes

 AdWords Workshop Social Marketing Expert Alejandro Reyes

 kevin finney

 AdWords Workshop Profit Expert Kevin Finney

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!

Ross Goldberg’s Xtreme Business Makeover in Sarasota, FL

Hello from room 218 of the Best Western Hotel at Ross Goldberg’s Xtreme Business Makeover in sunny Sarasota, Florida!

Simon Leung And Ross Goldberg In His Sarasota Office

I’ve just spent the last few days hanging out with a very small group of attendees in a private and intimate workshop held at Ross Goldberg’s office in Sarasota.

Because of the low number of people at this event, everyone really got the chance to connect with not only each other, but also with the speakers, as well as the organizer, Ross Goldberg himself.

In addition to Ross Goldberg, who did most of the hands on training, guest speakers and VIPs such as Ben Mack, Alan Bechtold, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Eric Farewell, Eric Stafford and myself also lent a hand in presentations and demonstrations.

During the off time, we also got to go out and explore Sarasota, including midtown, downtown, as well as a fun evening at Ross Goldberg’s home with his family.

Overall, we had a great time at Ross Goldberg’s event, but for now, it’s time to go home until the next week, which I’ll be taking off for in just a few days.

In fact, I will be traveling every weekend until the end of the summer, so be sure to check out my schedule for the next few months, and let me know if we’ll either be at the same event, or if you live nearby, and maybe we can plan to meet up and hang out for a bit :)

i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise 2008

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Personal, Travel, Updates, Videos on January 12th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Cabin 8204 aboard the Carnival Liberty somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean just outside of the Bahamas at the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise!

The Carnival Liberty, Hostess of the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise

What a way to start off the year once again, with yet another well organized vacation cruise organized by the i5 Gold Mentoring Program.

However, as you may or may not be aware, the i5 Gold Mentoring Program has officially closed its doors at the end of 2007, which makes the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise all that bitter sweet, as it marks the final i5 Gold event.

Notwithstanding, it was an outstanding farewell party as we spent 8 whole days aboard the Carnival Liberty, sailing from Ft. Lauderdale across the Atlantic Ocean to the exotic East Caribbean and hitting up islands like San Juan / Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and Nassau / Paradise Island in the Bahamas!

And as you can see from the photos below, not only was this cruise a huge opportunity to build business relationships and strike joint venture deals, but we also made sure that we had a “boat load” of fun as well :)

There really is no better way to build these friendships than to do it on a cruise, especially because so many marketers brought along their families and/or spouses, you have no choice but to form bonds with your favorite marketers when you are a part of their family vacation.

We wasted no time at all as the fun started even before the Carnival Liberty set sail from Ft. Lauderdale Port Everglades…

Bon Voyage Welcome Shot With Ross Goldberg, Lasse Rouhiainen And Howie Schwartz

Later on that evening, our Internet Marketing group had a welcome reception to kick off the cruise, where Captain Lou Edwards and the i5 Gold Mentors took center stage to set the plans for the week.

Throughout the week, there were other series of receptions that gave us opportunities to all get together and share some nice conversation over cocktails…

Cocktail Party With Daniel Arzuaga, Ricky Secades, Alex Nghiem And Armando Montelongo

Cocktail Party With Karen Kwan, Scott Byers, Robert Secades, Danny Arzuaga And Lasse Rouhiainen

Mardi Gras Pre-Party Coconut Drinks With Sam Heyer, Julie Olsen And Karen Kwan

And on nights that we felt like partying a little harder, well we had a few of those as well :)

At The Club With Donna Fox, Jermaine Griggs, Sarah Griggs, Lasse Rouhiainen, Anik Singal, Julie Olsen, Scott Paton And Matt Mazur

Washington Apple Shots With Anik Singal, JP Micek, Julie Olsen And Donna Fox

Needless to say, some of the best conversations, as well as the most productive ones, were discussed over the nice dining that the Carnival had prepared for us.

In Atlantis At The Bahamas With JP Micek, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Stephanie Appleton, Joe Appleton, Alex Nghiem, Karen Kwan, Mark Braunstein, Deborah Micek, Danny Arzuaga, Mike Filsaime And Laurie Filsaime

On the last night of the cruise, there was a Carnival Legends show where the winners of a singing contest would perform live on stage in front of the whole ship.

Out of the 10 winners who performed, 5 of them were from our own Internet Marketing group :)

Paulie Sabol As Elton John, Tom Beal As Ricky Martin, Jermaine Griggs As James Brown, Sarah Griggs As Aretha Franklin And Michelle Galvin As Madonna

As you can see, we just had a complete blast on the cruise, and just like last year, we didn’t want it to end.

Vacationing with fellow Internet Marketers on a cruise is so awesome because there are just a million things to do and countless ways to build and enhance our personal and business relationships.

There were just a ton of the top names in Internet Marketing that joined us this year for this private cruise, and for the most part, we had the chance to hang out with almost everyone.

However, there was one man who pretty much kept to himself throughout the whole cruise and spent most of his time with his family, but I was able to catch him and spoke with him for a few minutes, and here is a photo to prove it:

A Rich Schefren “Sighting” Aboard The Carnival Liberty Caught On Film

On every marketing cruise I’ve been on, I have had the pleasure of either meeting someone new or improving my relationship with people I have acquainted with, but haven’t had the chance to really get to know.

Being on a cruise gives us that opportunity because for 8 days, there’s really nowhere for any of us to go :)

So we make the best of it by getting to know each other, having a good time and above all, building the friendships and business relationships that will last a life time.

Even though the annual private i5 Gold Cruise has come to an end, there’s good news…

Moving forward, there will be a brand new and exciting annual cruise that I will have to tell you more about in a few weeks’ time.

And yes, this means that there will be another cruise next year, and we’ll make this opportunity available not only to the “VIPs,” but also to our fellow marketing friends, customers and subscribers…

So don’t feel left out if you didn’t get the chance to go with us this time around, because in just a few weeks, I’ll be able to make an announcement regarding next year’s cruise :)

The next one will be our biggest one yet, so stay tuned for more information about how you can join us on the next Internet Marketer’s Cruise!

In the meantime, enjoy this 5 minute short video I recorded on board the Carnival Liberty (sorry about the poor video quality – my camera has been taking a beating lately, I guess I need to get a new one soon)…

   

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live 2007 Philadelphia PA

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 11th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 601 at the Radisson Hotel at Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

It has been exactly one year since attending my first jvAlert Live right here at the Radisson Hotel in Philly, and it has brought back so many memories of the event that changed my life forever.

I went into Internet Marketing full-time within just 6 weeks after that event, and have been attending every jvAlert Live loyally ever since.

jvAlert Live is my home, and everyone here is family.

This year, the jvAlert Live family grew considerably, and I had the honor of sharing the Expert Panel stage with new jvAlert Live comers Michel Fortin, Dave Lakhani, Glenn Dietzel, Scott Paton, Ramon Williamson, Randy Charach, Heather Vale, Alan Bechtold and Jason DeVelvis…

Along with jvAlert Live alumnus Sterling Valentine, Tom Beal, Rick Raddatz, Ben Mack, John DeLemme, Frank Sousa, Phil Basten, Jane Mark, Brian Edmondson, Jeff Wark and Lori Steffan.

As always, Ken McArthur has put on a tremendous show, and lives have been changed right here at jvAlert Live.
