Hello from the Lake Conference Center at the Doubletree Resort Orlando for Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live! in Orlando, Florida!

As always, Ken McArthur has put on another spectacular learning and networking environment where we could meet new friends and reconnect with old ones, while creating an intimate enough atmosphere for everyone to feel comfortable getting to know each other better.

Every time I attend a jvAlert Live! event, I always enjoy seeing my friends and have a great time meeting new faces as well, which is why I try to make my way to as many of them as I can, and usually succeed in reuniting with the jvAlert family at least once a year.

This time, Ken McArthur has put together another powerhouse line-up of speakers – Sterling Valentine, Frank Sousa, Tom Beal, Robert Puddy, John Kremer, Devin Michaels, Adam Urbanski and Joey Smith, along with Lunch Series speakers Ross Goldberg, Nick Nalton, Elsom Eldridge and Mark Eldridge.

And of course, the networking was amazing with a crew of VIP experts as well as up-and-coming Internet Marketing superstars – Mark Hendricks, Jason Oman, Andy Huang, Rhonda Cort, Stefanie Hartman, Mike Weseley, Jani Ghaffor, Chris Moos, Micheal Savoie, Ryan Magin, Warren Yip, Chester Wayne, Kim Truong, Nadia Digilov, Tyler Patton, Chantal Patton, Jonathan Freeman and many others.

If you haven’t had the chance to attend a Ken McArthur event and meet the great friends we call family, or if you have and feel like it’s time for a reunion, then it’s time to do yourself a favor and take advantage of two amazing opportunities to make a difference in your business and your life.

The Impact Event 2010 in San Diego, CA – March 19th to 21st

jvAlert Live! 2010 in Philadelphia, PA – May 14th to 16th

Hope to see you in San Diego and Philadelphia in the next few months!

Four Years Ago Today…

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Gurus, Launch, Personal, Promotion, Resources, Seminars, Updates on April 30th, 2008 | No Comments

Four years ago, on April 30th, 2004, while I was still working at Google, I created my first blog.

In fact, you can read my very first post on this blog by clicking here => April 30th, 2004

Two years later almost to the day, I was presented with an opportunity to attend my very first Internet Marketing seminar.

You can read about that here => April 28th, 2006

Today, four years later, I am running my own successful Internet Marketing business, and I have been lucky enough to befriend a lot of fellow entrepreneurs in the community.

And just like most of them (if not all of them), I started my Internet Marketing business with a blog.

For the past four years, I have been consistently, tirelessly and even eagerly documenting every single step of my Internet Marketing journey…

Why?

Quite frankly, it was because I didn’t learn the secrets to Internet success overnight – and I KNEW I wouldn’t – so I wanted to record it all (for myself, so I can remember my successes and failures, but also for you, so you can learn from my positive examples as well as mistakes).

From just a general business idea that I had with a few friends while still working at Google and getting mentored by the late (and great) Corey Rudl, to attending my very first Internet Marketing seminar and continuing on to speak on stage for the very first time, it’s all there every step of the way.

You can read about how I began and went through my trials, struggles, fears and frustrations (just like everyone else), to where I am today – my victories and success stories – all documented on my blog, right here at www.SimonLeung.com.

When you have some free time, or when you want to take a break from your work, I want to invite you to read my entire story on this website.

It’ll make you laugh; it’ll make you cry…

But more importantly, it may even be inspiring, as well as a great read, if I do say so myself ;)

What has blogging my story done for me, and why do I continue to do it after all these years?

Well, as you can see in my various posts, I am not only telling stories, but I’m also teaching and providing good information.

More importantly, I make it fun with text, photos and even videos.

These elements help attract new visitors to my blog, and keeps them coming back to read more.

What does that mean to me?

In addition to loyal readers, I get traffic, traffic and even more traffic :)

I have dozens of websites, but the one that gets the most new and returning visitors is my blog, by far!

As my reader, I want to get you to understand the importance of having your own blog.

Actually, I was talking to Sterling Valentine about this the other day on our drive to San Diego…

Your blog is your tool to not only get traffic, but to also build your relationship with your readers.

Tell them good stories, give them good content, and make it fun for them, and they will come back again and again.

Personally, I blog cuz it connects me to you, and I want you to get to know ME, and not what I’m “known as.”

Yes, my blog brands me as an expert and a speaker (which is all very cool), but I want talk to you as a friend, and I want to tell you what I’m up
by sharing my experiences with you.

That’s the kind of blog that I want to run, and that’s the kind of blog you’ll continue to get for many more years to come when you come back and visit :)

And the great thing about a blog is that it’s the fastest way to start your Internet business.

I did it in about two hours, but with the new Anik Singal and Rosalind Garner’s Blog Classroom, you can probably do it in 10 :)

Technology these days has made starting your own blog as easy as a mouse click, and all that’s left is for you to plug in a little bit of yourself
and introduce yourself to your new fans!

The Blog Classroom shows you exactly what you need to do in order to brand yourself online and tell your story.

And before you know it, you’ll be all over the Internet (trust me – it’s really cool haha).

I hope this has encouraged you to start your own blog if you haven’t already started one…

Or if you have, I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can change or move forward that gives your readers more of yourself.

By the way, attending Internet Marketing seminars is a great way to meet other entrepreneurs, and it gives you something really interesting to blog about.

You can blog about your experience, what you learned, who was there, and you can even post photos and videos, which many people enjoy.

If you are interested in attending an Internet Marketing seminar soon, some upcoming ones include Ross Goldberg’s Xtreme Business Makeover Workshop in Sarasota, FL, Ken McArthur’s JV Alert Live in Philadelphia, PA, Mark Hendrick’s Internet Superstars Conference in Baltimore, MD, and Lynn Pierce’s Women’s Business Empowerment Summit in Scottsdale, AZ.

Let me know if you’re going to be at any of them and maybe we can meet up for lunch :)

Mark Hendricks’ Internet Success System Conference

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 20th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 426 of the Sheraton Gateway Atlanta Airport Hotel and Resort at Mark Hendricks’ Internet Success System (ISS) Conference in College Park, Georgia!

ISS Conference Presentation

ISS Conference Q&A Session

As I am typing this, we are experiencing a power failure here at the Sheraton Gateway Atlanta Airport, and we were told that the blackout is occurring all around this area, which is several miles south of the Atlanta airport.

We just came back from lunch, and with nothing better to do, most of the Internet Success System (ISS) Conference attendees are gathered around the conference room and lobby to network and chat with one another.

We were told that we should expect power to resume within the next hour – But then again, that had been the update every hour (it’s been five of them now).

What will Internet Marketers do without electricity? ;)

On to a more interesting topic, the Internet Success System (ISS) Conference is Mark Hendricks’ private semi-annual workshop with his ISS members, and is traditionally hosted by Mark Hendricks to conduct presentations, Q&A and masterminds.

Because Mark Hendricks’ intention for the Internet Success System (ISS) Conference is to build as close a community as possible, the other presenters of this event are usually other ISS Gold Members.

However, this weekend, I am honored to be one of only two VIP speakers scheduled – the other one being none other than the legendary Terry Dean!

ISS Conference Host Mark Hendricks and VIP Speakers Simon Leung and Terry Dean

I’ve met Terry Dean on a few different occasions, and have shared the stage with him before as well, but this time, we got the chance to talk and hang out more.

It was also good to see some of my friends who are ISS members, including Jeff Wark and Lori Steffan (the Dynamic Duo of Content), Dr. Ron Capps (the Niche Prof), Elsom Elderidge (the Obvious Expert), Chris Lockwood and Jim Loesch.

I must say that I am extremely impressed with how Mark Hendricks structured the Internet Success System (ISS) Conference to encourage members to team up and work with one another.

This is an extremely effective learning environment, and I can tell that all the members are very excited to be on this team.

This has been an interestingly hectic and productive stay in Atlanta for being a short trip, and although I didn’t have enough time to do everything I wanted to do and see everyone I wanted to see, I was happy to be able to see at least some of my friends (especially Jason Oman).

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…
