Super affiliate Ewen Chia of the Autopilot Profits have been featured on Singapore’s most popular English daily, the Sunday times. The article was placed in the ‘Me & My Money’ Section, whereby wealthy people are being interviewed each week on their money, investment and financial planning habits. This is one of my favourite sections in the Sunday Times as I get to pick up several useful millionaires’ habits.
Nonetheless, the people who have been featured are mostly CEOs, investors, real estate agents and financial planners. Hence, for an Internet Millionaire to be featured, its really a first of its kind. This just goes to show that people (especially Singaporeans) are slowly beginning to be exposed to internet marketing and how the Internet can be used a platform for any business or individuals to market their products and services in this new media age.
And now, with Singapore’s most famous internet marketer being featured on the mainstream media, internet marketing should receive the much needed buzz.
For those who are looking at Ewen Chia’s Autopilot Profits, go get it as its really an excellent product. And for people who are genuinely interested in picking up internet marketing but are at a loss as to how to go about starting, consider attending the World Internet Mega Summit. It should give you a clearer picture of what internet marketing is really about and provide you with a precise blueprint on how to start as a internet marketing beginner.
It certainly beats surfing aimlessly in search for internet marketing advice from website owners whom you do not even know. There’s no lack of online money making scams going around and many of those programs which promises people the world will simply disappear after siphoning the money of the innocent.
Hence, it is extremely vital that people receive the knowledge and advice from credible sources. And I cannot stress the importance of this more! Recently, one of my subscribers emailed me to relate his unhappy experiences with several online programs. I mean, you will be amazed by the extent he has been scammed. And it really irks me. As much as I do emphatise with him, this is a result of not going through the proper training. And coupled by the fact that there are indeed unscrupulous website owners, the image of internet marketing is sometimes more tainted than glorified.
But legitimate online business owners will tell you that the Internet can really be used to generate income for any ordinary individual without them having to fork out much capital. Just think about it logically. The Internet enables you to reach out to a much wider global audience and the costs of running a website is extremely minimal. (web hosting with Hostgator costs as little as $6.95 per month) Thus, the potential and amount of leverage one can achieve is immense. Furthermore, with affiliate marketing, one can make a decent income online without owning their own products.
However, we all know that affiliate marketing is not just about displaying your links in as many places as you can think of and hope that people will simply click on your link and buy. Much has to be done to build a list and maintain a relationship with your subscribers. Branding is almost essential in this aspect as you want to stand out from the average marketers in order to be successful.
Thus, it all boils down to getting the basics right. Its impossible to expect substantial amount of profits without investing in the right internet marketing education. Personally, the Derek Gehl’s ‘Insider Secrets To Marketing Your Business On The Internet’ remains one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
For affiliate marketers, Ewen’s Autopilot Profits would give you the much needed boost.
Nonetheless, he will be speaking at the World Internet Mega Summit taking place on the 26th-29th May. So be sure to grab a ticket!
Oops.. I just realized I blogged two consecutive posts on internet marketing when I just announced that this blog is changing focus. Hee! Sorry.. Anyway my new internet marketing blog ain’t up yet so that’s a valid excuse!

YiPeEeEe…. This blog is back and alive n kickin!!!! Cos my exams are over!! Phew… What a relief.. These two weeks have been really tough for me, as I tried my best to restrain from using my laptop too much due to exams. Hence, that explains the severe lack of posts on this blog.
But glad to announce that my exams are officially over! Which also means a lengthy summer hols of 3 and 1/2 months! WoOoHoo.. Up till now I’m still amazed at how long the Uni hols can be. The last summer hols I had in Year 1, there was the World Cup to occupy my time. Also worked as a tele-surveyor at a marketing research company and that was when I realized how much companies are willing to spend on market research.
I was paid $8.50 per survey done and earned $2300 in a month. (minus weekends and my Bangkok trip) My fellow colleague from my school earned $3500 within the same time frame! Unbelievable if you asked me. Nonetheless, that was certainly a humbling experience as I almost literally begged people to do surveys on the phone. And each survey lasted for around 15 mins. Not to mention there were countless rejects and several nasty respondents as well.
Hence, I learnt to deal with rejection and was soon immune to them. Trust me, you will learn to be immune to them as on average, I get rejected 20 plus times before getting a successful survey done. I also learnt how to deal with people with a foul temper and how to remain my cool regardless of how terrible the situation is. I’m not kidding when I say I developed a slight phobia even to answering normal phone calls back then.
Nonetheless, this summer hols, I don’t have to go through that ordeal again. It feels great to know that while most of my peers will be going on various internships, I will be embarking on something more exciting and rewarding. Yes, full time internet marketing! And this further strengthens my commitment to building a successful business even before I graduate.
Thus, the focus of this blog shall be in line with its name ‘The Insights Of Calvin Woon’. So it should cover all my insights on life, entrepreneurship, offline marketing, business, wealth creation and anything in particular. Nonetheless, it will be geared more towards personal development, which I feel is an essential component of life. Hence, I sincerely hope that through this blog, I’m able to inspire, motivate, as well as reach out to others who need that extra push to attain the success that they desire.
And this also gives me the room to discuss some of the light-hearted issues and also gives more room for creativity and humour.
With that being said, I will be lauching a separate internet marketing blog which I have been building content on. Hence, that will be the blog where I share my Internet Marketing experiences and learnings. Shall post the link in a few days time!
I will also be revamping my ‘7 Ways To Earn Money Online‘ package, a set of eBooks which Patricia and I co-wrote. As it was our pioneer product, it certainly can’t be perfect. Hence, will be making a couple of improvements and updates to it. Now looking at the sales page, I realized there’s certainly much to be improved on so you can expect a major revamp to it. Nonetheless, coming up with that package was a tremendous effort and achievement on our part. And the best form of encouragement was when we received compliments from our customers who have benefitted from it. Hence, we’ll never stop adding value to others!
Other than improving on our current product, we’ll also be busy with a huge product launch some time in July. I’m really excited about this as I can really foresee it being our breakthrough. Hence, the bulk of our efforts will be concentrated on this product launch. We’ll be collabarating with another partner of ours for that and we’ll be starting a company together too!
Apart from all these launches and product development, much learning also has to be done. There are a couple of useful eBooks which I feel would add value to my business which are waiting to be read. After these 3 months, we’ll definitely be able to establish ourselves as SEO and copywriting experts, two areas which I feel is vital to any internet marketer.
We’ll also be attending two huge seminars. One an internet marketing seminar in May, and another on the Art of Influence. Will be revealing more in my next post! So stay tuned!
Oh yah, pls do come back often for constant blog updates. As I’ve already made a commitment to blog at least a post everyday. So if you happen to come and realize I did not blog for a day, email me and I’ll buy you a drink!
That’s all for now!
God Bless all of you!!

Yet another long overdue blog meme I’ve been tagged on. After a week of mugging (supposedly), I’ve decided to de-stress by blogging! Haha.. guess I just revealed one of the reasons why I blog.
This time round, Ive been tagged by my friend Alex over at his Insights of Self Help & Personal Development Blog. The topic: 5 Reasons Why I Blog.
Honestly, I’ve never given much thought about this. Though in the past, when blogs were fast gaining popularity, I could easily produce 10 reasons why I didn’t blog. I’ve always thought that I sucked at writing, noone would bother to read my blog, my life was too boring.. etc etc..
But now, ever since I’ve started blogging in late last year, I simply can’t stop. (dun be mistaken by the lack of sincerity due to the lack of posts.) I’ve grown to love blogging. in fact, even if noone is reading my blog, I don’t mind! And I will still blog on as I enjoy reading my blog posts personally.
So having to think of the 5 reasons of why I blog shouldn’t be too big a problem. So here goes!
Well, I must admit the reason why I started a blog was for internet marketing purposes. I first got to know of internet marketing after reading Adam Khoo’s Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires back in August last year. Thereafter, researched rather intensively on that topic and got myself really involved and enthusiastic about it.
Coincidentally, blogs were being mentioned by many of the gurus as one of the best traffic generation techniques. In fact, blogs are slowly taking over the normal websites and its not surprising. A blog has its advantages in terms of SEO and the level of interactivity it allows. In terms of layout and structure, its also much easier to manage as compared to a normal website.
Hence, after reading Gobala Krishnan’s Wordpress Adsense System and witnessing the potential of blogging, I decided to start my own blog in a bid to further enhance my internet marketing efforts.
2. Sharing of my Insights, Learnings & Knowledge.
However, after blogging for awhile, I realized that it was this reason that really drives me. I honestly feel a sense of satisfaction at being able to share my insights, learnings and knowledge. Though I certainly not claiming to be an extremely knowledgeable person, but I do take pride at being able to share whatever little knowledge I may seem to have.
And it feels good to know when people enjoy what I’m blogging. Hence, I truly strive to provide the best value to my readers. Most importantly, my blog provides a platform for me to record my learnings as I grow. Hence, its really vital for me personally as well as I get to track my learning process and I’m able to revisit them constantly.
3. Network and make friends
Blogging also allows me to network and make friends. As people from all over the world visit my blog, I get to make friends with them. Though this kind of ‘friendship’ may seem superficial to some, I truly believe that meaningful friendships can indeed be forged in this manner. The high level of interaction of blogs also helps in this aspect.
I sincerely hope to make more friends through blogging and also reading other blogs. I feel its a great platform for me to know people of similar interests. So feel free to email me or leave a comment somewhere!
As blogging also kinda displays one’s character through his/her thoughts, it also allow people to understand one another better. Hence, its also able to strengthen friendships due to this increased understanding.
4. Stimulates my mind and encourages thinking
Whenever I sit down and decide on what to blog, it forces my mind to really think and reflect on various issues. As I do not wish to be someone who simply replicates others’ content (which many bloggers do), I try to be as opinionated as possible.
Hence, this truly stimulates my brain and encourages thinking on my part. And whenever there are comments and opinons raised by readers, it also exposes my mind to new & fresh perspectives and adds a whole new dimension to my thinking.
Blogging also enables me to more effectively communicate my thoughts which can be quite challenging at times.
5. I simply love it. And I’m proud to be a blogger!
Yes simple as that! I actually find huge enjoyment in blogging, likewise for this post. Though I’ve not been blogging often, I will definitely do so after my exams! Which ends on 28th April. Can’t wait!
So for those of you who do not own a blog or have not been updating often, start blogging now! Just sit down and start typing. Just let your thoughts flow. It can be addictive and you might get carried away sometimes. But the key thing is you’ve got to learn to enjoy it - and this applies to everything you do!
Alright. That’s all for now.
What are your reasons? Passing it on to my friends…
1. Desmond (alex tagged you too!)
4. And anyone else who’s reading my blog. Just leave a link to this post to let me know you’ve been tagged!
God bless and have a great weekend while I continue mugging!

Today marks the last day of lessons for this sch sem! Finally all my project deadlines and presentations are over.. Really a sigh of relief for me.. But not time to enjoy and relax though.. As it also signals the start of the study week.. Meaning to say my exams start in one week’s time! Time to panic for some.. But for me, I don’t have the habit of panicking b4 exams..
Nonetheless, this calls for effective management of my time so as to maximize my study week in preparation for my exams.
Have been listening to Dan Lok from Outsource & Delegate and he happens to talk about the 9 time management techniques that he uses. Dan is one of the most highly sought after business consultants on the Internet. Patricia also posted a time management post over at her blog too.. Hence, shall share some of the time management techniques that I learnt.
7 Effective Techniques For Time Management
With so many tasks on hand, prioritizing is an ultimate must. You can’t possibly accomplish everything within a day. Hence, you need to prioritize and work effectively. Effectiveness is working on things with high payoffs. You should always focus on objectives and not on activities. The most important tasks/activities are those that help you to accomplish your objectives. Hence, each day we should set one major objective and achieve it. Ask yourself these questions to see if you are prioritizing your time effectively:
a. What’s the most efficient use of my time right now?
b. What’s the payoff of this activity?
c. What objectives do I want to accomplish?
d. Is what I’m doing this minute moving me closer to my goals?
2. Have a To Do List
Having a To Do List has various advantages such as:
a. It helps us know the different things that have do be done so that we do not miss anything.
b. It is more dependable than our memory.
c. Once we have a written list of the things that we have to do, we can prioritize and decide which jobs should be done first.
d. It enables us to cross out the tasks which have finished doing and towards the end of the day when we see the list of things that we have crossed out, it certainly will give us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
e. If anything remains on today’s list, it can be carried over to tomorrows list and that is excellent way of preparing a to-do list for the day, by examining the ‘to-do’ list of yesterday and carrying out any task that has been left without completion
3. Time Blocking
Set aside blocks of time for everything you do. You can even make appointments with yourself. Think about it, normally when you make appointments with others, you’ll tend to keep to it. However, when you assign tasks to yourself, chances are you might procrastinate. Hence, see your tasks as appointments with yourself and make sure you adhere to your appointments.
Try to schedule your time in smaller blocks. Most people schedule their time in one hour blocks. However, many tasks do not require one hour, hence it can be a waste of time.
Note: Bill Gates schedules his time in 6 min blocks. How about you?
4. Only check your emails once a day
I must admit I check my emails pretty often. And I believe most internet marketers also have this bad habit. I check my emails to see if there are new opt-ins, check to see if there are sales orders or affiliate sales, check to see if there are new comments on my blog and also check if there are new emails coming from the various internet marketers whom I subscribed to.
Honestly, this is highly unproductive. Hence, if you are like me, stop! And try to dedicate a specific time to check and read your emails, and only once or twice a day.
5. Create Your Own Productive Environment
You are the subject of your environment, therefore select the best environment which will move you towards your goals. Hence, in order to be a high performance worker, you cannot be interrupted.
In order to create a productive environment, it must be free from all kinds of distraction. Once you set out this block of time to accomplish a certain task, make sure you set your mind only on the task. Do not leave your MSN or TV on, which will only serve to distract you.
6. Become computer efficient
This is especially useful for internet marketers. Learning to type faster and using the essential shortcut keys will be able to help us save a great deal of time.
7. Stay Focused
Successful people are laser- beamed focus. In order to maximize your time fully, you just have to be super focused. Don’t jump from one task to another. Make sure you finish a task before moving on to the next one.
Having a productive environment will also help you to stay absolutely focused.
So there you have it! The 7 Effective Techniques for Time Management.
This will surely come in handy during my exams preparation as well as in the future. Hope this benefits you as well!
Meanwhile, if you would like to learn more about truly leveraging your time, check out Dan Lok’s Outsource & Delegate. It will certainly add a new dimension to your business.

I was tagged by my friend Kian Ann at Blogopreneur (a really informative blog focusing on blog marketing) a few weeks ago.. This was part of a meme started at Today is That Day. Haha.. as you can see, I’m long overdue.. Oops.. Hope this wun discourage people from tagging me.. My bad!
Wanted to blog this post long ago, but kept procrastinating. Also partly due to the two marketing test I had in school which just ended today! But this also signals the start of the study break soon in preparation for the final exams for the semester. Just three more weeks and it’ll be over! Thereafter, three months of holidays!
I’m so looking forward to that. Lotsa exciting plans lined up. It’s going to be a massive breakthrough for myself and some of my friends whom I’ve gotten to know recently. Can’t wait for that.
Now that I’ve battled two of my exams and have some time to take a breather, shall go ahead and post my long overdue post.
Anyway, here are my habits!
1. Communicate with God daily - I constantly pray to God. By this I do not mean I devote huge amount of time to quiet prayers. I try to involve God with my daily activities, making it a point to thank Him for small little things that happened in my life. Most importantly, I constantly remind myself of how merciful and gracious He is. I live my life for Him.
2. Show gratitude - It’s easy to get carried away with all the busy stuffs that I’m involved with. And often I neglect the people around me. Hence, I make it a point to show my appreciation as much as possible. Simple things like saying thank you, smiling.. and saying I love you (for Patricia). Also, it feels good to show gratitude even to people whom you don’t know. Try thanking the person who clears your table when you dine the next time. Few people does it. But from my experience as a waiter before, I know that simple gesture is worth a lot. So I always make it a point to thank people for such simple service.
3. Stay positive always - Highly important. I hate it when people whine and complain, and talk about the worst scenarios possible. Really depressing to hang around with such people. As if the crises facing the world isn’t gloomy enough and you have to add on to that. Cheer up! Many of my peers get so uptight over a small lil proj or test and cannot stop worrying. Worrying will not help! So if that’s the case, why worry? Guess it’s human nature.
But I do know that all successful people are positive people. And they focus on solutions instead of problems.
So stay positive always! When problems arise, do not fret! As Problem + Solution = Opportunity.
Quote from Johnny Wimbrey:
If you hang around with 9 negative people, you’ll be no. 10!
So hang around be positive people as well! Positive people are always happy. So you can count on them to cheer you up too!
I’ve talked more about staying positive in a previous post. Read it at Stay Positive Always
4. Establish a strong driving factor - I’ve managed to establish an extremely strong driving factor for myself and I remind myself constantly about it. This helps to act as a powerful motivation tool and helps to kick procrastination away. I talked about the importance of finding your driving factor at Would You Rather Be Rich (Pt2).
5. Set well-defined goals and remind yourself of them daily
Setting goals not only serve to track your progress and also gives you a direction in life. You should set goals in all areas of your life. Setting stretch goals will also stretch you out of your comfort zone and lead you to achieve things which normal people wouldn’t.
6. Being absolutely committed towards achieving my goals - This means I’ve made it a MUST to achieve my goals. And I’m absolutely passionate about achieving my dreams and goals.
7. Do not be afraid of failure - I talked about this in Success Tip #2 & #3 For 2007 - Overcome the Fear Of Failure & Avoid Procrastination so read it over there!
8. Consistently learning (Being a student for life) - I a strong believer in personal development. Am glad that I was exposed to NLP and motivational resources early. Am also a student of Success University whereby I gain access to courses, audios and videos from 50 of the world’s speakers and trainers. This provides me with the extra knowledge and motivation boost.
I also constantly read books and listen to audio programs in my quest for more knowledge. Learning should be a lifelong process, and no matter how successful you think you are, it’s still vital that you keep striving to upgrade. No man is perfect, and there’s always things that you can learn from others. So never think you know everything!
9. Apply the knowledge I’ve learnt - Knowledge is useless without application. Many people would attend seminars or buy tons of books. But all these will simply translate to money going down to drain if no application follows. Just take an example, I know of at least three friends who have read the book Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires by Adam Khoo. However, none of them have taken action towards the things that were laid out inside the book.
On the other hand, I’ve taken massive action and started out on my internet marketing business. Not saying I’m highly successful now, but I know I’m working towards there. Most importantly, I’ve really pushed myself out of my comfort zone and not contend with living an unmotivated and average life.
Applied Knowledge = Wisdom
10. Visualize Success - I visualize myself being at the position I want to be constantly. Remember the Law of Attraction from the movie ‘The Secret’? I’ve visualized myself speaking in front of an audience in my own workshop way before the idea of holding a workshop surfaced. And it has manifested in reality. Now the Law of Attraction does not advocate you simply sitting down and thinking positively w/o doing anything.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that this is not going to bring you success.
What it’s trying to convey is
Thought -> Decision -> Action
For every desired end state, it has to start with a thought. Just take a look around you. Everything that was invented started first with a thought. Hence, your thoughts will lead your mind to your decisions that will result in your actions. So if you focus on positive thoughts, it will lead you to take the right decisions in order for you to take the neccessary actions which will culminate in positive results.
On the contrary, flood your mind with negative thoughts and your life will be a replica of your negative thoughts.
So remember, you need to start visualizing yourself achieving the success you desire even before you achieved it!
Now that I’ve shared my habits, what are yours?
I shall pass this on to a few friends

Yes Michael’s Traffic Videos are finally launched! I’ve been a fan of Michael Cheney ever since his 11 Days To List Profits launch. His last traffic videos were fabulous, but he certainly has outdone himself this time round.
One of the biggest problems faced by internet marketers is the lack of traffic. Bloggers complain about not having enough traffic to their blogs. Affiliate marketers complain about not having a big enough list to promote to. And product owners also face the problem about not generating enough sales due to the lack of traffic.
What if all these problems could cease to exist?
Most people would surf around aimlessly in a bid to find the one traffic generation technique that would bring them the most amount of traffic to their website.
Ask yourself this question, have you ever stumbled upon a traffic generation technique that was claimed to bring a certain internet marketing guru tons of traffic? But before you were able to master it effectively, another traffic generation technique pops up which is supposedly better than the previous. Hence, you get distracted and follow blindly whichever traffic generation technique that comes along and seems more attractive than the previous.
Do you think by this way you will be able to generate a decent amount of traffic to your website? The answer is NO!
Hence, when I had the chance to be Michael Cheney’s JV partner and had the opportunity to gain access to his traffic videos, I was ecstatic.
For those who are looking for the best traffic generation techniques, this is simply the best of all traffic methods put together in one place. You don’t just get to learn them by going through long eBooks, you get to see it live how Michael Cheney was able to build such a massive list in such a short period of time!
Due to my heavy school commitments recently, I have not finished viewing all of his videos. (it’s over 8 hours of traffic training!) But I’ve already looked through some of the videos and I’m completely blown away. Having been through a large amount of traffic generation eBooks and videos myself, I’ve never seen such a complete and concise resource put together to detail all the best traffic generation techniques available. Trust me, you’ll be blown away by both the depth and breadth covered.
Coupled with practical action plans which were designed to help marketers get started, Michael’s step-by-step traffic videos makes it easy to understand and apply powerful traffic techniques instantly for any internet marketing newbie or aspiring internet marketer. Even for intermediate or advanced marketers, you’ll will pick up tons of useful tactics ready to be applied to unleash a stream of long term traffic to your website.
Having said so much, just give a brief run through of what is covered inside the Michael’s Traffic Videos:
There are 49 videos altogether, detailing 16 explosive traffic generation techniques. Each video comes with a fast-track to traffic action plan which you can follow and apply immediately.
Some of my favorite videos include how to unlock the power of offline traffic and how to capture hungry traffic using a press release. These are traffic strategies seldom mentioned by most marketers hence this two sections were really useful.
Another one of my favorite section is the one on Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Not sure about you, but I’ve always found having to tweak with the mechanics of SEO both tiring and challenging. However, Michael has dedicated a total of 6 videos outlining how you can dominate the search engines and get ranked no.1 for the keywords you desire. So you can imagine how relieved I felt with such a useful help from Michael’s videos.
Other traffic videos covered areas like social networking traffic, how to get viral and repeated traffic, as well as banking on articles to deliver autopilot traffic. Lastly, bloggers would love the section on how to unleash the traffic power of your blog.
Michael also includes bonus features by Web 2.0 Experts, including:
- Video Report “Internet Money Machines” by Online Video expert Frank Sousa
- “MySpace Marketing Optimizer” by MySpace expert Simon Leung
- “White Hat Blogging Techniques” by blogging expert Rob Benwell
- “Black Hat Blogging Techniques” by blogging expert Rob Benwell
- “How To Avoid The Top 20 Traffic Disasters” by Michael Cheney himself
Alright, having said so much about Michael’s Traffic Videos, you should have gotten a more detailed analysis of what’s included in his latest videos package. All I can say is, it’s important to invest in yourself when it comes to internet marketing. Not just any form of education, but practical and non-hyped up education. If you are only willing to invest in just one traffic generaiton resource, this has to be the one. You can simply forget about all the other eBooks on traffic generation and just focus on this set of videos. And trust me, you will be able to get tons of targeted traffic to your website,
Lastly, always remember as much as traffic is important, you also need to concentrate on the conversion aspect of your website. Else, regardless of how much traffic you get, it’s useless.
Go check out the videos here now!

As mentioned in my last post, I’ve managed to get hold of an interview done with traffic expert Michael Cheney. I’ve just briefly looked through the “Michael’s Traffic Videos” and left him a testimonial. All I can say the videos are simply awesome. 49 videos on traffic generation and a couple of unbelievable bonuses included. Just applying one traffic strategy inside is enough to increase huge traffic to my websites greatly. Will be doing a more detailed review of the “Michael’s Traffic Videos” which is due to launch in around 2 days time once I’ve finished viewing them.
Meanwhile, just enjoy the interview that was conducted with him.
Michael Cheney Talks Traffic - Interview With A Traffic Expert
We managed to grab some time with him recently and quiz him on his favorite topic - traffic.
You’ll get a lot out of this interview including a killer 40-page E-book on traffic that Michael has written to help you avoid the Top 20 Traffic Disasters!
So let’s get started.
Q. Firstly Michael, thank you for joining us today in your busy schedule.
A. Hey no problem. Good to be here.
Q. We all know that traffic is important but could you just explain a bit about traffic for the beginners out there?
A. Sure. Traffic is the lifeblood of any business online. Without it you just die. We all know that. But what a lot of us don’t realize is that just like everything else on the Internet traffic changes very quickly. That is, the methods of getting traffic are changing all the time and that’s where people get caught out.
Q. What do you mean by “caught out”?
A. Well people fall into the trap of thinking that just because they know one or two traffic generation methods that they are some sort of traffic master. In reality just because you know how to start a pay per click campaign or a little bit about search engines doesn’t make you anywhere near a traffic expert. I’m trying to spread the word that there is a massive array of traffic tactics that most people aren’t even aware of, let alone using or mastering.
Q. Can you give us some examples?
A. Sure. Offline for example. You might immediately think that getting traffic is a purely online activity but the truth of the matter is that there are lots of things you can be doing offline to get people into your website. And it’s usually these sorts of areas that are being under-utilized and therefore there is less competition for that traffic as well.
Q. So by offline you mean advertising offline?
A. Not necessarily. That is one method, yes, but I’m thinking of more creative ways to get people into your website. It all comes down to the fact that having asked people on my list it came as no surprise that most people want to know about free rather than paid traffic sources. I’ve had to become an expert in free ways of getting traffic in my time online.
Q. What do you mean - I thought you were running a successful online business with lots of cash flow?
A. I am. But it’s not always been this way. When I first started out in 1995 I had nothing. No money to play with. Just my own initiative and imagination.
Q. So are you saying you’re against paying for traffic online?
A. No. No I’m not saying that at all. What I’m saying is that, especially when you first start out, you always want to focus on the free methods. You get the traffic in for free, make some sales and then you can reinvest some of that money into paid methods of getting traffic. This speeds up the process.
Q. So what particular offline methods are you referring to - can you give us some examples?
A. There’s one tactic I used that costs nothing to implement, is relatively quick and ended up getting me thousands and thousands of targeted visitors into my websites. When I’ve shared this tactic with other marketers at seminars they’ve started laughing and slapping their foreheads when they saw how easy it was. They were also embarrassed that they had failed to use this tactic. It was quite amusing.
Q. So are you going to tell us what this method is?
A. No! (laughs) It’s in my course! I truly believe in rewarding those people that are most eager to learn so instead of giving away all my traffic tactics in interviews like this I’ve put some of them in an E-Book I’ve written. It is free though if people want to get it.
Q. So how can people get hold of it?
A. It’s called “How To Avoid The Top 20 Traffic Disasters” and you can get it by going to Michael’s Traffic Videos - you’ll see it mentioned on that page.
Q. What’s in it?
A. Well I really wanted to raise the bar on a free E-Book so I spent a lot of time creating it. It’s 40 pages long and stuffed with juicy content on what NOT to do when it comes to traffic. As far as I’m concerned too many people out there tell you what you should do but not what you shouldn’t do. That’s where this E-Book comes in.
Q. Okay. I think we’re about done is there anything else you want to tell everyone?
A. Just that if they are serious about getting more traffic into their website they need to goto Michael’s Traffic Videos and get that free E-Book.
Q. Cool. Well thanks for your time Michael and speak to you soon.
A. My pleasure. Speak soon.
