The SMART Seminar 2008 In Singapore

Hello from the Singapore Expo at The SMART Seminar 2008 in Singapore!

Stuart Tan And Simon Leung At The SMART Seminar 2008 Singapore

After one hell of an event at The SMART Seminar 2008 in Malaysia last weekend, Stuart Tan and I knew that we had a ton of expectations to meet this weekend when we debuted The SMART Seminar in Singapore.

Even though The SMART Seminar in Malaysia delivered big, we had to make do with the absence of two of our expert speakers, who were unable to be replaced within just a few short days’ notice.

Fortunately, Stuart Tan and I were able to pull a few strings with a little more time on our hands, and we used the extra week to bring on board two additional powerhouse speakers for The SMART Seminar in Singapore:

And yes, our new speakers are in addition to the same expert talents who presented at The SMART Seminar Malaysia the previous week, including Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Donna Fox, Mike Morgan, Mark Widawer and Robert Puddy.

As expected, our surprise mystery speakers gave jaw dropping performances, and the entire audience were completely floored by the level of information shared in their content-packed presentations.

Much like the previous weekend in Malaysia, The SMART Seminar in Singapore also brought the speakers and attendees together with the breakout sessions…

But in addition to the two new speakers, what distinguished The SMART Seminar in Singapore was that we actually streamed most of the event through live video so people could watch the presentations all around the world!

Click Here To Watch Recordings Of The SMART Seminar 2008 Singapore
Over 100 viewers joined us from all across the world throughout the weekend, including other top name marketers like Mark Joyner, Matt Bacak and several others.

Overall, I would definitely consider the two week adventure of The SMART Seminar a tremendous success.

It was first seminar of its kind, and Stuart Tan and I are very much looking forward to continuing this epic era for many years to come, growing the project and expanding even to more areas around the world.

But of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of The SMART Seminar team and speakers…

So here, I’d like to express my sincere thanks to Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Stephen Pierce, Mike Morgan, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Mike Koenigs, Mark Widawer, Donna Fox, Robert Puddy, Andy Huang, Cassey Lim and Terence Yao for making The SMART Seminar 2008 a remarkable experience.

Last, but most certainly not least, a special thanks to my partner and awesome friend, the most giving and generous guy I know, my co-host of The SMART Seminar – Stuart Tan.

Stuart, I’m grateful for our partnership and friendship, and look forward to working on our continued and upcoming projects together in the not-so-distant future!

To The SMART Seminar 2009 and beyond – see y’all next year!

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 speakers

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

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.

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

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…

Real AdWords Training Program In Singapore

Posted by Simon Leung in Google, Personal, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 29th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from the Seminar Room of the Lee Kong Chian School of Business in the Singapore Management University (SMU) at the Real AdWords Training Program!

ewen chia

smu

The Real AdWords Training Program is the first of many workshops that I will be partnering up with my good friend and native Singaporean, Ewen Chia.

About four years ago, I first interacted with Ewen Chia as a customer of his many affiliate marketing products, and he was one of the first Internet Marketers I came across while learning the ropes of Internet and affiliate marketing.

It wasn’t until December of 2006 when I visited Singapore for the first time did I finally meet Ewen Chia in person in the restroom of the Shangri-La Hotel (yes, this was another JV restroom encounter haha).

We had briefly discussed working together then, but things finally got rolling again last November when we shared the stage at Fabian Lim’s Asia Internet Congress in Singapore.

As we continued our discussions over email, the birth of the Real AdWords Training Program was born, which is why I have the pleasure of working with Ewen Chia this weekend and the primary reason for this Asia trip.

The Real AdWords Training Program was a lot of fun to do in a sold out classroom format at the Singapore Management University.

I very much felt like a University professor in front of the room, and it definitely had an impact in helping make the workshop more hands on and interactive.

Because most of the room at the Real AdWords Training Program comprised of newbie Internet Marketers, in addition to the content delivery, we were doing a lot of hand holding, live demonstrations and Q&As.

And as with all of my workshops, I always encourage people to work on their campaigns as they learn the information throughout the weekend, and those who did actually got some pretty cool results.

There were students who built their first websites, designed their first landing pages, drove traffic to a website for the first time, and even made their first sale before the weekend was over!

All in all, I would say that this was a very successful event, and all the attendees of the Real AdWords Training Program had nothing but good things to say about the workshop.

Even though the Real AdWords Training Program was my primary reason for going to Singapore, I do have several more highlights from my trip.

For example, Alex Mandossian gave me a shoutout on stage at T. Harv Eker’s Guerilla Business Intensive (Funny quote from Alex Mandossian on stage: “By the way, if you really want to learn how to use Google AdWords… That guy over there who looks like he doesn’t know anything – he’s the guy who created their optimization training…”)

In addition, Ewen Chia and Stuart Tan both took turns taking me out for exquisite local cuisines, meeting and training Ewen Chia’s team and Stuart Tan’s students, and tons of fun times at hanging out, drinking and watching movies with my friends Cassey Lim, Yanli Zhang and Benjamin Gay.

Although we weren’t able to capture every moment on camera (cuz it broke!), these are some of the good times we actually did so I can share them with you here…

Internet Success Program Preview Seminar Two

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

Hello again from the York Hotel in Singapore, where Ewen Chia and I just completed our second preview seminar for our Internet Success Program!

ewen chia

 ewen chia

 Over 200 people responded to our event’s promotion to meet us live tonight, and for about two hours, Ewen Chia and I shared the stage to give the attendees some of the best information available anywhere about building their Internet businesses.

These preview seminars have been tremendous for me in terms of experience and learning more about the Singaporean culture, and what types of content they respond to, and how to best deliver them.

An interesting lesson I discovered is that when it comes to comedy, some of my best material that gets people slapping their knees in the states actually bombed completely and got almost zero response from the audience!

However, I already had such expectations because the same thing happened last time I spoke in Singapore, and this time, instead of feeling like a fool again, I used this as a testing tool to learn what kind of psychological triggers they respond to.

In fact, I learned so much from just studying the audience’s reactions alone that we actually more than DOUBLED our conversions from our first preview seminar!

Definitely an interesting and productive learning experience for me, especially since I’ve decided to work on more projects internationally and primarily in the Singapore and Malaysia regions.

Internet Success Program Preview Seminar One

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 18th, 2008 | No Comments

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!

internet success program
 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.

ewen chia
 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…
