Hello from the Hard Rock Hotel at Frank Kern’s Mass Control 2.0 Workshop in San Diego, California!

 Frank Kern And Simon Leung At The Mass Control VIP Party On The Roof Of The Hard Rock Hotel

This is Frank Kern’s second Mass Control workshop and just like last year, Frank Kern pulled out all the stops to ensure the most incredible event possible.

The networking was simply amazing, with 1000 people turning out to network with Internet Marketing’s top dogs John Reese, Yanik Silver, Jeff Walker, Mike Filsaime, Ed Dale, John Carlton, Mike Koenigs, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Joe Polish, Andy Jenkins, Tom Beal, Jeff Mulligan, Harrisi Fellman, Jason Moffatt, Mark Widawer, Ross Goldberg, Peter Parks, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and countless, countless more.

It was simply impossible to run into, much less met everyone who attended the Mass Control 2.0 workshop because Frank Kern did an amazing job packing the venue to the core of what appeared to be thousands of people!

Nonetheless, the networking with those I was able to spend time with was awesome, not only during the Mass Control 2.0 workshop itself, but the social activities after the event.

Frank Kern never fails to throw magnificent events, and the Mass Control 2.0 workshop was definitely no exception!

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!

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 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:

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 :)

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!

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 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.

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)…

 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!

Networking Dinner in Los Angeles, CA

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Gurus, Travel, Updates, Videos on May 27th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Gate 7 of the Southwest Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Los Angeles, CA!

I just said bade farewell here at the gate with Alejandro Reyes, my former apprentice turned Operations Manager turned business partner.

We were in Los Angeles for the day on business, and decided last minute that we would organize a networking dinner in LA before we went home.

Collectively, we have lots of friends in the LA area, but because it was so last minute, not everyone was able to make it.

Alejandro had the idea of using Twitter to let his followers know that we were in town, and by 7pm, we had a small group of 6 people meeting up for dinner at the Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, a 5 star restaurant in El Segundo.

 Twittering Fools At The Dinner Table: Rachel Rofe, Mark Widawer, Simon Leung, James Lee, Alejandro Reyes And Chuck Yockey

As you can see, all 6 of us were busy twittering away even at the dinner table :)

We didn’t get to stay too long since Alejandro and I had to catch a flight, but it was fun hanging out with some local marketers for a couple hours.

If you’re interested in meeting up sometime while I’m in your neck of the woods, check outmy calendar and feel free to Twitter me to let me know you’re in the area and want to meet up.

Since Alejandro and I both had our flights delayed, we decided to shoot a quick video on the power of networking, and how social media has made it so much more easier to network online with practically anyone you want.

Enjoy the video :)
