Internet AUStars Tour in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney (Australia)

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates, Videos on November 25th, 2009 | No Comments

Hello from the Internet AUStars Tour in Australia, where Nikhil Parekh and I are hosting a 10-day Internet Marketing extravaganza across three Australian cities – Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

After organizing several of our own workshops this year covering Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Social Media, Google AdWords and Agency Training, Nikhil Parekh and I decided to close off our final event of the year by inviting a handful of top notch Internet Marketing experts to present alongside with us at the premiere Internet AUstars multi-speaker event.

The goal for Internet AUStars was to provide as much value as possible to our attendees, so Nikhil Parekh and I were very selective about the experts we invited – They must be successful in what they are teaching, willing to conduct not one but two trainings, and be around the entire event even after they have presented for speaker panels, hot seats, networking sessions and make themselves available for one-on-one time with individual attendees.

It was a challenge to narrow down our list of worldwide experts, but in the end, our international Internet AUStars team included Dr. Mike Woo-Ming from San Diego, CA, Christopher Guerriero from New Jersey, David Cavanagh from Thailand, Glenn Dietzel from Ontario, Canada, as well as guest appearances from Australian locals Peter Drew, Paul Barrs, Aimee Vo and Katerina Morjanoff.

Even though the Internet AUStars 10-day tour was grueling event for the entire team, it was very much worth it just to be able to bring all these worldwide talents to the Australian audience.

The SMART Seminar has returned to Singapore this year following a tremendously successful event I ran with Stuart Tan in Malaysia and Singapore last year.

This time, The SMART Seminar continued to bring the top experts from all around the world to the Singapore stage.

With the addition of this year’s roster of Internet rockstars, which includes Fabian Lim, Jo Han Mok, Jaz Lai, Alok Jain, Andy Huang, Peter Parks, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Nikhil Parekh and Ian Del Carmen…

The SMART Seminar has successfully brought some of the top experts to Singapore from the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Philippines and India.

As always, our top priority at The SMART Seminar is to bring as much value as possible to the attendees, which is why we have filled our agenda with content-packed presentations, expert panels with Q&A and group networking sessions, so the audience can really get to know each speaker.

Thanks again to the entire cast and crew for making The SMART Seminar a tremendous success – You are all rockstars!

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)…

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!

Two Sides of Traffic Workshop in San Diego, CA

Posted by Simon Leung in Promotion, Seminars, SEO, Streaming, Travel, Updates on December 14th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from room 1011 of the Embassy Suites Hotel at the Two Sides of Traffic Workshop in sunny San Diego, CA!

  
The Two Sides of Traffic Workshop is my first collaboration with Howie Schwartz, and the objective of this event is to combine both Google’s organic listings with the paid search (the two sides of traffic).

Howie Schwartz and I presented together as well as individually, which included presentations, hot seats, Q&A sessions and live demonstrations.

My personal favorite demonstration has to be the video clip Howie Schwartz and I recorded above.

Literally at the last minute, we decided to take on the challenge of recording a video live on stage, and seeing how quickly we can get that video indexed by Google.

With the help of Mike Koenigs, we used Traffic Geyser to submit the video and within less than 26 minutes, the video already got top 10 rankings on Google!

As I explained how I witnessed the magic happen right before my eyes to the attendees, we refreshed the page and saw that an additional website has been indexed on the first page of Google.

Man, this Traffic Geyser is no joke – it really works!

(By the way, I just checked the rankings again moments ago and our video has dominated the top five spots on Google already!)

Other VIP guests for the Two Sides of Traffic Workshop includes Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Mark Widawer, Jason Moffatt, Rex Wisehart and Ryan Kaltman (from The Rich Jerk).

Overall, we have received some very positive responses from the attendees about our Two Sides of Traffic Workshop.

The atmosphere was very positive, and in addition to learning some great content, there were also some great networking opportunities, as well.

Tomorrow is the Lead Supreme Workshop with Howie Schwartz and Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, which promises to be another day full of amazing content.

Unfortunately, I can’t stick around and need to leave San Diego tonight because I need to head out to Las Vegas at 6 in the morning.

That’s right – I don’t waste any time… The adventures of a traveling Internet Marketer is truly living life in the fast lane :)

Fabian Lim’s Asia Internet Congress in Singapore

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on November 29th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1007 of the Grand Mecure Roxy Hotel at Fabian Lim’s Asia Internet Congress in Singapore!

  
I’m extremely excited to be here at Fabian Lim’s Asia Internet Congress to speak about Google AdWords and the different ways to maximize the traffic for highest conversions.

Other speakers at this event include Donna Fox, Dr. Mike Woo Ming, Jermaine Griggs, Sean Roach, Nathan Anderson, Joel Christopher and Singapore natives Ewen Chia and Jaz Lai.

While there, I also had to the chance to meet up with my local friends Stuart Tan and Jacyln Chan, and made many more in the process.

As Asia is an ever growing market for Internet Marketing, I have also had the chance to discuss some very exciting business opportunities to bring more of what we do here in the U.S. over to the Asian countries.

But amidst all the shop talk, we even found time to have some fun and enjoy some fine local dining, sightseeing, lounges and of course, karaoke (no trip to Asia is complete without).

I really enjoyed Singapore a lot, and I am looking forward to setting up some business ventures here so I will have an excuse to come back more often.

The Rich Jerk Mastermind and Party Event

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on August 18th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1709 of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Ave of the Stars at The Rich Jerk’s Mastermind and Party Event in Los Angeles, California!

This is an exciting trip because it will be the first time that all four members of my team in one of our companies will be present (Hey, we’re Internet Marketers – doing business with people you’ve never met before isn’t all that uncommon).

I arrived at LAX on Thursday afternoon from my quick flight from San Jose (SJC), just in time to meet up with my buddy and business partner, Sam Heyer, whose flight was just coming in from Minnesota.

As I waited for Sam near the baggage claim area, Harris Fellman shows up with his wife, Andrea, along with Jud Smith from PowerPay, and his assistant.

It was a cool surprise, and the funny thing was that neither Harris, Jud nor Sam were aware that they had shared the same flight to Los Angeles.

In any case, we all then shared a cab ride to the hotel here at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, where we checked into our rooms and settled in a bit.

Then, Sam and I decided to head downstairs to grab a bite and ran into Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal and Randy Charach, who were hanging out at the lobby and waiting for a couple other people to go to In and Out Burger.

We were then greeted by Harris and Andrea again, who preferred sushi over In and Out, so Sam and I decided to join them for some lunch there at the hotel, where we were then joined by Jason Moffat and Merlin Holmes as they made their way into the hotel.

After a little bit of mingling, we went back to our rooms to get ready to go to the Magic Castle, which is an exclusive club, and you are allowed entry only with members of the Magic Castle.

So then, we all met up at the hotel lobby with John Reese, Kevin Wilke, Jeff Mulligan, Mike Long, John Reel, Jeff Dedrick, Kevin Colon, Eric Rockefeller, Jud Smith, Wesley Williams, Tim Erway, Patric Chan and Magic Ryan Kaltman from The Rich Jerk Team and headed over to the Magic Castle to experience some insane close up and stage magic action.

The next day, we had a private mastermind session with everyone from the Magic Castle, along with more people who joined us late, including Eben Pagan, David DeAngelo, Willie Crawford, Jason Potash, Dave Lakhani, Tom Bell, Joel Therien, IIona Therien, Dave Miz, Jason James and Mike Woo-Ming.

This was a great session as Eben Pagan took the stage to talk about business building strategies, followed by an interactive question and answer session where the audience wrote down their most burning questions on the wall, and experts take turn answering them.

 Speaking At The Mastermind

As soon as the mastermind session was over, we all got ready for the highlight of the trip – A party at the Playboy Mansion!

The Playboy Mansion was spectacular – and entering the property itself was an entire military operation!

I had the chance to hang out with some of my other Internet Marketing friends there, including Anik Singal, Jason Oman, Rachel Rofe, Arnel Castro and TV Stars of A&E’s “Flip This House,” Armando Montelongo and Veronica Montelongo.

Speaking of stars, other celebrity sightings at the Playboy Mansion include Paulie Shore, Bobby Brown, Mad Mike, Mystery and Adam Mesh from Average Joe.

I will spare the details of The Rich Jerk’s Playboy Mansion Party to avoid offending anybody, but overall, everyone in our group had an incredible time and the mansion was simply amazing.

Later on today, David DiNucci, one of my best buddies from Google who moved down here to Newport Beach is going to swing by the hotel to pick me up, and we’re going to drive back up to the Bay Area together.

It will be a lot of fun as we haven’t hung out since his birthday party down in Newport Beach back in February, so it will be a great opportunity for us to spend some quality time together and catching up.
