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.

Hello from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort at Ken McArthur’s IMPACT Event in Orlando, Florida!

The IMPACT Event Presentation with Lee Collins

I’ve spoken at quite a few seminars over the past few years, and out of all of them, the IMPACT Event has got to take the prize on bringing me the most childhood memories …

After all, we are at Disney World!

In addition to sharing the stage with Lee Collins, Frank Sousa, Warren Whitlock, Adam Urbanski, Sanyika Calloway Boyce, Glenn Dietzel, Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins, Felicia Slattery and David Preston…

I also had the opportunity to meet and reunite with a stellar line-up of VIPs, including Ross Goldberg, Dr. Ron Capps, Elsom Eldridge, Chris Lockwood, Melanie Milletics, Alicia Durnams, Rhonda Cort, Eric Farewell, Becki Andrus, JR Griggs, Kim Law and my new BFF, Alura Law. :)

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live and Vitality in Las Vegas, Nevada

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 19th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 519 of the Monte Lago Village Resort at Ken McArthur’sjvAlert Live in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada!

I actually didn’t arrive into Las Vegas until Sunday morning on an early morning flight from San Jose with Lee Collins, Robin Collins and Eric Farewell (which is why I didn’t have any time at all to take any photos!), and when I stepped into the jvAlert Live room, I was immediately greeted in the presence of greatness…

The Las Vegas jvAlert Family included Dave Lakhani, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Frank Sousa, Mari Smith, Barbara Drazga, Mark Widawer, Erik Stafford, Stephanie Mulac, Jonathan van Clute, Glenn Dietzel, Rick Butts, Carrie Wilkinson, Micheal Savoie, Glen Hopkins, Jason Develvis, Dan Kelly, James Lee, Felicia Slattery and countless others that I can’t remember right now!

It was also Harris Fellman’s birthday this weekend, and he decided to roll out and celebrate Vegas style with his entourage Sam Heyer.

Unfortunately, I could not stay long at jvAlert Live because I also have another obligation with the ViSalus event, Vitality.

With 2000 people filling up the conference with motivation and high energy, we watched inspiration presentations, cash-winning contests and fellow ViSalus business owners take the keys to their brand new BMWs!

It was an exhilarating experience, and I’m glad that I made the trip to Vegas to witness the magic they put on stage.

In the evening, I, along with Lee Collins and Robin Collins, also got the chance to meet up with JP Micek and Deb Micek for dinner.

Even though JP Micek and Deb Micek were exhausted from a long weekend in Vegas, also speaking at another event, we had a nice dinner and great conversation.

In fact, through that conversation, Deb Micek extended me an invitation to become a part of Social Media Simplified, a one day event scheduled for next Monday in Ventura, CA.

Even though it is short notice, I couldn’t miss the chance to share the stage with the best in social media marketing, including Deb Micek, Mari Smith, Linda Taylor, Nancy Marmolejo and the BlogSquad.

So, if you’re in the Southern California area, let me know if you’d like to stop by Social Media Simplified – would definitely enjoy meeting up with you :)

Exclusive JV Partnership Invitation

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Launch, Promotion, Updates on August 21st, 2008 | No Comments

If Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Kevin Nations, Mike Morgan, Ross Goldberg, Lee & Robin Collins, Eric Farewell, Rex Wisehart, Nathan Anderson, Alejandro Reyes, Sam Heyer, James Lee and myself asked you for a joint venture, what would you say?

No really, this is a serious question…

Personally, I get dozens of JV proposals every single day – and that’s only the ones that make it through to my email inbox!

Like all the top marketers mentioned above, I probably receive hundreds more on a weekly basis through my support desk, personal instant messenger, SMS text and social media profiles like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.

Needless to say, there is simply no way for us to respond to all these JV proposals or even sort through them, much less accept them.

So when I take on a JV partnership, especially when I’m working with the top Internet Marketers in the world mentioned above, you better believe that I am not only seriousabout, but also very excited about it as well.

The truth is, for the past few months, I’ve been working on building an entirely new business with these marketers that’s definitely going to change my entire business forever, and maybe even yours too (if you decide to partner with us).

It’s something I’ve never done before, and probably never will again…

And today, I am extending you an official invitation not only to become our customer, but to make money and share profits with us as our partner in arguably one of the biggest projects each of us have all been involved in!

There has already been a lot of buzz surrounding over 10,000 people on the social media sites regarding a “secret 12? launch, and in the next week or so after launch, an additional 300,000 sets of eyeballs are going to learn more about this unique opportunity.

If you are serious about the exclusive opportunity to partner with the top names in Internet Marketing, don’t think about it for too long because when we’ve reached our quota for JV partners, we’ll be closing the doors forever and the only way to partner with us again in the future may be competing against the hundreds of other messages we get every week…

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…

Remember The Alamo, Y’all! :)

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.

Ross Goldberg’s Masters Seminar In Chicago, IL

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on July 20th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1116 of the Westin Hotel at Ross Goldberg’s Masters Seminar in Chicago, IL!

masters seminar

As you can see from the Masters Seminar sign, Ross Goldberg has gone all out with a high budget production for his latest Masters Seminar. :)

All joking aside, the sign above was only temporary while we awaited the print-outs of the real sign, which was ready before the doors opened at 8am on Friday morning…

ross goldberg

For this Masters Seminar, Ross Goldberg has put together the most impressive expert line-up yet, including some of the biggest names in Internet Marketing.

Speakers include Joel Comm, Anik Singal, Donna Fox, Ken McArthur, Willie Crawford, Alan Bechtold, Frank Sousa, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Nathan Anderson, Tracy Repchuk, Eric Farewell, Kevin Nations, Brad Semp, Eric Stafford, Bob Jenkins, Gina Gaudio-Graves, and myself…

As always, Ross Goldberg put on a great event that not only included a ton of amazing content, but fun networking opportunities as well.

Speakers and attendees alike were able to network with one another at the conference, over lunch, dinner, at the hotel bar and even at a private cocktail party.

And within our own inner circle of friends, we’ve always believed in giving back and over-delivering…

So Joel Comm and I decided that we would do a bonus presentation for the attendees on a very logical partnership – the two sides of Google, AdWords and AdSense…

joel comm

During the 90 minute or so presentation, Joel Comm and I told some personal stories and revealed some strategic ways to grow a business using AdWords and AdSense.

In addition, we also took specific questions from the audience to make sure that the content we provided was the kind of information they wanted to learn.

Overall, the consensus was that the bonus session was very valuable, and those in attendance were very appreciative of the additional content.

On a more personal note…

As much as I enjoy speaking at seminars and networking with attendees or other speakers, I feel like it might be time for me to take my own business to a new direction.

When I came back home from Asia last March, I planned to stop speaking at so many seminars to focus on my own office projects and business overseas.

However, before I knew it, my travel schedule was booked every weekend through the end of the summer.

While I continued to have fun at these various events over the summer, I’m planning once again to focus on various other aspects of my business that would require less seminar speaking.

This time, I’m serious…

I do plan to continue traveling, as I have a lot of fun doing it, but I would only do so for my own events or for International business affairs.

You’ll hear more about some exciting new projects I have in the works in Singapore, Malaysia and China in the upcoming months…

I’ll be working with my good friends Stuart Tan and Ewen Chia from Singapore, as well as some of my top performing team members, Andy Huang and Kevin Finney.

That will probably be several weeks down the line for production and launch time.

In the meantime, if you are interested in catching me one last time before I leave the country again in about a month, I will be in Long Island, NY, on August 8th, at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop that I’ll be conducting with Ross Goldberg and Howie Schwartz.

Because we’re so close to Mike Filsaime’s Long Island office, Mike Filsaime and his team will most likely drop by as well, along with several other surprise VIPs over the course of the weekend.

And again, because we believe so much in giving back, Ross Goldberg, Howie Schwartz and myself are actually not going to make any money from this traffic workshop.

Plus, in addition to receiving a free ticket to this event, you will also have an opportunity to give back yourself by helping children in need.

I honestly can’t think of a better way to wrap up my two year speaking tour than this, and would be honored to share this experience with you…

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!

Karen’s Birthday Weekend In Laguna Beach, CA

Hello from Room 108 of the La Casa Del Camino, where we’ve spent the weekend celebrating Karen’s birthday in sunny Laguna Beach, CA!

We began Karen’s birthday Friday evening with friends at the Las Brisas Mexican Restaurant for drinks, then moved on to dine at Javier’s Cantina and Grill, where the wait to be seated itself was a little over 60 minutes…

 But as you can see from the photos below, the exquisite quality of every seared-to-perfection entree made every minute of the wait very much worthwhile…

The next evening, we continued our fun weekend when my good friend “Magic” Ryan Kaltman invited us to the Magic Castle in LA, where I, along with Eric Farewell and James Lee, spent the evening enjoying brilliant illusions by amazing magicians.

On Sunday, I was scheduled to speak at Dr. Mike W00-Ming’s Continuity Cash Cow in San Diego…

So we took the drive down and met up with Dr. Mike Woo-Ming and his crew of fellow experts, Shelby Larson, Mark Ress, and Alex Nghiem.

Later on in the day, I invited Jason Moffatt and Mike Koenigs to join us, and we wrapped up the evening with a nice dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

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 :)
