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

 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.

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!

 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.

 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…
