Larry Benet’s Speakers & Authors Networking Group

Hello from the Silverado Resort at Larry Benet’s Speakers and Authors Networking Group (SANG) in Napa Valley, CA!

larry benet

I drove up here to Napa Valley today with Eric Farewell, not knowing what to expect at Larry Benet’s Authors and Speakers Networking Group (SANG), and really not even deciding whether or not to come until earlier this afternoon.

But once we arrived at Authors and Speakers Networking Group, we were completely floored by the caliber of business individuals and entrepreneurs present all in one room…

We’re talking about best selling authors, multi-millionaires and even billionaires, including Jack Canfield (from the Chicken Soup of the Soul series), Bill Bartmann, Ron LeGrand, Alex Mandossian, Stephen Pierce, Joel Comm, Russell Brunson, John Carlton, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Brendon Burchard, Mike Koenigs, Kevin Nations, Matt Morris and dozens more.

Umm… yeah, this event was NO joke, dude!

This truly was a solid networking event, and I can honestly say that I have never seen a more brilliant relationship building event model than the one I have witnessed at the Authors and Speakers Networking Group.

In addition to the speed networking sessions, everyone continued to network non-stop through dinner, and even after the event was over, hanging out at the hotel bar into the wee hours of the night.

Because I have yet to replace my broken camera and Eric Farewell also forgot his camera equipment at my house, we were unfortunately unable to capture too many moments of the Authors and Speakers Networking Group on film.

However, for your viewing pleasure, Eric Farewell has gone ahead and done a couple extra 12 second videos for you at the Silverado Resort in Napa Valley (ya he’s not as good with these 12 second videos as I am haha)…

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…

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…

Joel Comm Live In Loveland, Colorado

Hello from Joel Comm’s exquisitely decorated guest room at his gigantic beautiful house in Loveland, Colorado!

Simon Leung Setting Up His Workspace In Joel Comm’s Guestroom

After arriving into the Denver airport, I was delighted to be greeted by a towncar Joel Comm had sent to pick me up.

The ride was about 45 minutes to Joel Comm’s house, where I met his wife, Mary, and his kids, Zach and Jenna.

We soon left for dinner at the Mongolian Grill, where we met up with our graphic designers, Robert Secades and Danny Arzuaga from GraphicMavericks.com.

There, Joel Comm also revealed the secret Confessional location from his hit show, The Next Internet Millionaire.

Following dinner, we returned to Joel Comm’s house, where we spent a little time in his home office talking shop.

That conversation quickly got boring, and we decided to play some video games in his basement instead.

Turns out our video game of choice is more like a mix between live band and karaoke, as we rocked the house with “Rock Band” for PS3!

Rockin Out With Joel Comm, Robert Secades And Danny Arzuaga

It was a good time… and I think we each discovered some new talents (and new hobby when we retire from Internet Marketing haha).

When the Graphic Mavericks took off, Joel Comm and I enjoyed a movie on his giant screen home theater…

After the movie, Joel Comm needed to work on his next issue of his Joel’s Tips newsletter, so we called it a night while I made myself at home in his beautiful guestroom.

If you’re on Joel Comm’s list, you would’ve seen that this week’s Joel’s Tips talks about his Joel Comm Live show that he has every Wednesday at 1pm EST.

And this week, I’m his special guest (full episode available below)…

I got to spend the rest of the day with Joel Comm at the InfoMedia Inc. office, which was a very impressive operation.

Together with his team, we hammered out some cool projects we’re going to be working on together in the upcoming months, so definitely stay tuned for that.

Before we head out and call it a day, I’m gonna go need to whoop Joel Comm’s butt one last time on Guitar Heroes 3 for XBox 360 :)

While I do that, check out this week’s episode of Joel Comm Live:

Hello from Room 212 of the DoubleTree Guest Suites near the Cobb Galleria at Armand Morin’s Big Seminar 9 in Atlanta, Georgia!

This was my first time attending Big Seminar, which took place at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel … And everything I’ve heard about Armand Morin’s spectacular event has been all true!

In addition to the amazing speaker line-up, which included Loral Langemeier, Marlon Sanders, Joel Comm, Alexandria Brown, Russell Brunson, Joe Polish, David Riklan, Jim Edwards, Mike Stewart and Armand Morin…

Even Internet Marketing experts who were NOT speaking at Big Seminar 9 came out, including Jeff Walker, Brad Fallon, Andy Jenkins, Craig Perrine, Donna Fox, Stu McLaren, Tellman Knudson, Carl Galletti, The Rich Jerk, Shawn Casey. Michel Fortin, Sylvie Charrier, Brian Edmondson, Ryan Deiss, Matt Bacak, Eric Holmlund, Jeanette Cates, Mark Braunstein, Keith Wellman and Eric Rockefeller, just to name a few.

As you can imagine, Big Seminar has indeed been a tremendously valuable networking experience!

From getting interviewed for Joel Comm’s “The Next Internet Millionaire” TV reality show to late night runs to the Waffle House, this has, without a doubt, been a memorable Big Seminar weekend.

And from the rumors that are going around, Big Seminar 10 is coming up next and as the 10th semi-annual event, it is scheduled to be the biggest Big Seminar to date!

So leave your calendar open for Big Seminar 10 scheduled for the month of October, and I look forward to seeing you then here in Atlanta, Georgia!

Joel Comm’s My Contact Station

Posted by Simon Leung in Launch, Promotion, Updates on April 18th, 2007 | No Comments

I’m still trying to catch up after my Nashville trip from over the weekend.

I really enjoy going to live events because of all the wonderful people I meet there.

But most of the time, it is usually the successful networking at these events that contribute to my backlog because when I get home, I am often greeted by dozens of emails in my inbox from the people that I met.

Now don’t get me wrong – I love to hear from people and in fact, I would prefer it, since I am so busy that it really helps me out if someone follows up with me.

The only challenge is that I have to spend a lot of time sorting through my email and replying to them after I remove the junk email and separate the business emails from the personal ones.

That’s why I was so excited when my friend, Joel Comm, sent me an Instant Message the other day to tell me about a super cool new script that will solve this problem completely!

It’s called My Contact Station and it’s basically a website contact solution that installs onto your website easily in just 10 minutes.

MySpace Marketing Optimization

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Launch, Promotion, Resources, SEO, Travel, Updates on March 1st, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from all the way up on the 16th floor in room 16352 on the East Tower of the gorgeous ancient-styled Luxor hotel in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada!

I just checked into my hotel after walking through the golden hallways, and the room itself is definitely designed for the high rollers, not to mention a view to die for of the famous Luxor pyramid, whose light is so bright that it shoots all the way up into outer space!

I’ve visited the Luxor hotel before, but this is my first time actually staying in it. And the best part is – I get the room all to myself!

…For one night, that is.

You see, my girlfriend, Karen, will be flying in to join me tomorrow night after she gets off from work, and together, we will attend Paulie Sabol and Donna Fox’s Credit Millionaire Marathon this weekend, where they will not only show us, but also help us apply right then and there up to $500,000 line of credit for our businesses!

Pretty incredible stuff, isn’t it?

Despite being a seminar junkie and attending events what seems to be week after week, the caliber of the hosts, speakers and content never ceases to over-deliver.

Not only that, but the attendees are all amazing people, as well. With so many people in attendance that you want to meet and talk to, and everyone at these events are thinking the exact same thing, successfully connecting with everyone has become quite a challenge.

Believe it or not, most of us have found the solution in what can be considered one of the most effective new media for connecting and marketing – social networking sites – but more specifically, MySpace.

As you may or may not be aware, the popularity of social networking sites, MySpace in particular, has increased dramatically over the past several months…

…Not only in its original intention to meet new people or keep in touch with friends, but more recently, also for business networking and marketing purposes.

During this time, we have also seen a flood of some of the most well-known Internet Marketing experts in the world jumping onto the MySpace scene…

…Experts like Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Armand Morin, Dr. Joe Vitale, Brad Fallon, Stephen Pierce, Marlon Sanders, Ken McArthur, Joel Comm, John Di Lemme, Brian Edmondson, Harris Fellman, Craig Perrine, Carl Galletti, Mark Hendricks, Willie Crawford, Jeff Walker, Tellman Knudson, Stuart Tan, Matt Bacak, Scott Paton, John Reel and literally dozens and dozens more!

What we are witnessing here, especially with the experts joining in and giving permission to their hundreds of thousands of students, customers, subscribers and fan base to personally communicate to them, is social proof at its very best.

And while I can’t whatsoever speak for these experts who are leveraging MySpace for their marketing, or how well it has been working for them, I can honestly and confidently tell you that it has worked miraculously for me.

Ever since I began implementing some of my own strategies to my MySpace profile around August of 2006 after leaving Google and going full-time, my profile almost instantly became one of my top 5 traffic sources for some of my main websites!

Check out these actual stats taken directly from my Google Analytics account (click on photo for full size)…


AdWordsOptimization.com stats (Sep 2006)


MasterAdWordsOptimizer.com stats (Oct 2006)


AdWordsConsultation.com stats (Nov 2006)


BuzzMeIn.com stats (Dec 2006)


SimonLeung.com stats (Jan 2007)


TheAdWorder.com stats (Feb 2007)

Pretty neat, isn’t it?

But wait, that’s not all…

Would you believe it if I told you that my strategies can also increase your search rankings, not only for your MySpace profile, but for your other sites, as well?

Check this out and see for yourself (click on photo for full size)…

Search results for ’simon leung’ on MSN.com

As you can see, not only is my MySpace profile number 4 out of 150,333 search results, but out of the first 10 results on page one, 8 of the websites are mine, including the first 5.

How about you?

Are you also maximizing your fullest potential with MySpace, and optimizing your profile into getting the most traffic both directly and organically?

If not, the place is here, and the time is now…

Because for a very limited time only, I am releasing my brand new MySpace Marketing Optimization report for absolutely zero cost!

And if you are a fellow MySpacer, why don’t you send me a friend request while you’re there? It would be great to finally network with you, and hopefully connect a name to a face if you have photos posted…

Oh, and please feel free to tell your friends about it, too! My only request is that you send them to my MySpace profile page to download their free copy.

Send them here…
