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!

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.

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.

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:

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.

Karen’s Birthday Weekend In Laguna Beach, CA

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Personal, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 2nd, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 108 of the La Casa Del Camino, where we’ve spent the weekend celebrating Karen’s birthday in sunny Laguna Beach, CA!

We began Karen’s birthday Friday evening with friends at the Las Brisas Mexican Restaurant for drinks, then moved on to dine at Javier’s Cantina and Grill, where the wait to be seated itself was a little over 60 minutes…

 But as you can see from the photos below, the exquisite quality of every seared-to-perfection entree made every minute of the wait very much worthwhile…

The next evening, we continued our fun weekend when my good friend “Magic” Ryan Kaltman invited us to the Magic Castle in LA, where I, along with Eric Farewell and James Lee, spent the evening enjoying brilliant illusions by amazing magicians.

On Sunday, I was scheduled to speak at Dr. Mike W00-Ming’s Continuity Cash Cow in San Diego…

So we took the drive down and met up with Dr. Mike Woo-Ming and his crew of fellow experts, Shelby Larson, Mark Ress, and Alex Nghiem.

Later on in the day, I invited Jason Moffatt and Mike Koenigs to join us, and we wrapped up the evening with a nice dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

Frank Kern’s Mass Control Workshop in San Diego, CA

Hello from Room 935 of the Hard Rock Hotel at Frank Kern’s Mass Control Workshop in San Diego, CA!

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

I just spent the weekend hanging out with Internet Marketing’s top dogs, who all attended as part of all-star VIP line up of the Mass Control Workshop.

We saw cameo appearances from superstars like Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal, Rich Schefren, Jeff Walker, Jason Moffatt, Mike Koenigs, Brad Fallon, Andy Jenkins, Mike Morgan, John Carlton, Matt Gill, Rex Wisehart, Sterling Valentine, Mark Widawer, Kevin Nations, Ryan Kaltman, Lynn Pierce, Frank Sousa, Ross Goldberg, Bob Serling, Eben Pagan, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Ed Dale, Tellman Knudson, Joe Polish, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Shawn Casey and at least several others that I can’t think of right now!

I know – I couldn’t believe the VIP guests either!

All of these top marketers coming together in San Diego definitely made the Mass Control workshop a spectacular and memorable event.

But just as valuable as the networking was the incredible content delivered by Frank Kern and his guest speakers.

They spoke of the human psychology behind a customer’s buying process, and everything that defines a prospect’s purchase decision.

I was especially impressed as Frank Kern dissected the anatomy of his multi-million dollar Mass Control launch, which was nothing short of brilliant!

But more importantly than just the money is the process that can bring you more followers and fans in your specified niche.

Even though I don’t personally have a big launch planned for at least another few months, I am extremely eager to put some of this new information to use.

Over the next several days, I’ll be implementing some Mass Control style strategies to see on a couple social networking websites to see how well they work for me.

Check back soon and I’ll let you know the results :)

Eben Pagan’s Altitude Program

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 10th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1638 of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza once again on Avenue of the Stars at Eben Pagan’s Altitude Program live event in Los Angeles, California!

Simon Leung and Eben Pagan

Today is day three of Eben Pagan’s five day event, and I must say that I am absolutely floored at the intense level of quality information delivered here, and I can honestly testify that it has been some of the most valuable business and team building content I have ever encountered.

It’s been a while since I have experienced information overload, and who better to learn these strategies than Eben Pagan, the marketing genius who built his company from a single room to a thriving 20 million dollar a year business with 80 virtual employees all around the world in just six year’s time!

We are learning how to live the ultimate Internet business lifestyle, and the hundreds of business men and women in attendance who paid a $10,000 registration fee to access this information all agree that the Altitude Program has already overdelivered in value many times over.

Among the online and offline business owners in the audience even include well-known and extremely successful (some legendary) Internet Marketing experts Mark Joyner, Declan Dunn, Frank Kern, Joe Polish, Brad Fallon, Tellman Knudson, Mark Widawer, John Childers, Anik Singal, Rick Raddatz, Ryan Kaltman, Glenn Deitzel, John Carlton, Frank Garon, Tom Bell, Nikhil Parekh, Jose Espana, Matt Gill, Greg Poulos, Joe Lavery, Marty Stewart and Jason Moffatt.

I’ve got close to an entire notebook’s worth of golden information from Eben Pagan’s presentations and guest experts, and I can’t wait to share it all with my team so that we can implement these systems into my business ASAP and take it to the next level faster and more effectively than I ever imagined!

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.
