Responding To My Haters

My friend who has been my project manager for a long time recently wrote something to address fake negative reviews about me. I want to thank him publicly and appreciate the time he’s invested in working with me.

I will not add on to what he wrote because I believe it contains the gist of what I wrote earlier this month.

Hi, my name is Peter, and I’ve had the privilege of knowing Ewen Chia personally. In fact, I’ve worked with him for a long time. You might think I’m just trying to defend my long time friend here by saying what they are writing is false. However I want you to see a deeper pattern that’s going on among the very people who are disparaging Ewen.

Here’s what I’ve noticed.Don’t Believe Those Negative Fake Reviews

  • The things they write about him and my products are fake

I know this is subjective. You may not believe this. So let me proceed straight to the next point.

  • They promote their own offers

If you actually read to the end of the reviews, you will see that these people are promoting their own offers. Not just any offer though. I’ve noticed that most, if not all of them, are promoting Wealthy Affiliate. Which brings me to my next point.

  • Ewen is not the only guy they’re writing bad stuff about

I browsed through the websites of these people who wrote bad stuff about Ewen and I saw that Ewen is not the only guy who’s been a victim of fake negative reviews. In fact, I see a lot of credible internet marketers as well getting their heat.

  • They’re clearly riding on his name to get attention

The name Ewen Chia gets a lot of traffic on the internet. So what’s an easy way to get traffic? Leverage on somebody’s fame. They’re basically leveraging on his name to get views on their website, where they in turn disparage him in hopes to win over their readers to join their own program (Wealthy Affiliate for most of them).

Is this something Wealthy Affiliate is teaching their students to do? To write bad stuff about internet marketers just to get downlines for themselves?

You can read his full post here.

I remember how quite a few of my students were so impacted by what they learnt from me. One of them is Vietnamese and despite not being able to speak or understand English, she still generated income online.

I also had the honor and privilege to meet her again personally at an event where I was speaking at.

One of them even mentioned me in a post she wrote:

So to end off this post, I just want to point out that big companies like Apple and Samsung have their own raving fans as well as haters. What works for you may or may not also work for someone else. We are all different.

4 Reasons Why Branding Is Crucial In Sales Conversion

What do you think of when I asked you about brands?

If you are lady, naturally, you may be thinking about Louis Vuitton for their handbags.

Coca-Cola and McDonalds when we discuss about food, and Apple and Samsung when discuss about electronics.

These are all big brands and do you know that these companies do spend big bucks on building their brands?

But what does this got to do with you? Does it help if you are a smaller business? Or it doesn’t matter?

Here is what you will discover in today’s post. You’ll learn the top 4 reasons why branding is so crucial in your sales conversion.

1) Reputation, Reputation And Reputation

Your reputation precedes you. If your business has been around for some time, then for most of the time, someone will have heard of you even before they landed on your website.

They may already have an opinion about you and your products and their opinions is largely dependent on your brand.

Take for example, Apple. When you think of Apple, you will think that Apple products are of high quality and stylish looking.

What do people think about you and your products then?

Your brand and reputation has a huge impact on your conversions and how you market your products.

2) Type-In Traffic

If you build a really strong brand name, then, you will actually get more type-in traffic than from paid advertising.

This may be difficult for a new business but if you work to build your brand up and become the reasonating factor with your industry. Then, whenever people are looking for products or services in your industry, naturally, they will type in your website address at the address bar directly.

Let’s take for example, Amazon.com, Surprisingly, the website gets a lot more traffic from people typing in their domain rather than from advertisements.

This will be a huge traffic source in the long run and you don’t want to miss this out.

3) Networking Advantages

Let me ask you a question. Who would you like to meet or give favors to? Someone in your market who you have never heard of, or someone who already has a brand and reputation.

In the internet marketing industry, there is many things that can be related to this.

Who do you let to do a guest blogging on your blog? Or who do you look for when you want to write a guest blog post?

If you are doing a product lauch and looking for JV partners and affiliates, who do you look for?

I think you’ll understand the importance of your brand and how it can helps you in your business.

4) You Are Your Brand

You need to realise that building the business brand also means building your own brand.

Look at Tesla and his founder Elon Musk. Will he have difficulties if he is looking for the investors for his next venture?

Ultimately, behind all the business, there is real people in them.

By having a strong brand in your business, you will become more credible automatically.

The effects of a powerful reputation cannot be emphasized enough. It’s definitely less measurable numerically than ROI or traffic, but its power is there. Don’t overlook it just because you’re in a small market.

Lastly, I like to take this chance to wish all my readers a Happy, Healthy And Prosperous Chinese New Year!

Don’t Be Fooled By Fake Reviews Of Me

Beware Of Reviews By Wealthy AffiliateRecently I have been seeing a lot of content on the internet about me being a scammer. Well I had a closer look at the content, and what I saw was really despicable. Let me explain.

Here’s what I can see. Other people are siphoning and leveraging on my name, Ewen Chia, just to get traffic to their website. The content on their website is falsely disparaging my credibility. However, the majority of general consumers do not know well enough, and so, they will believe pretty much almost anything they see on the internet. In turn, these website owners will promote their own offer and product. This is certainly a strategy that has been around for a long time, and I am not the only victim. Loads of credible internet marketers and coaches out there have been on the receiving end of fake negative reviews. Beware of negative reviews and the people behind them! Here are a few of the culprits:

Ian Pribyl of StoppingScams.com

He writes about scam products on the internet but his website Stopping Scams is a big internet marketing scam in itself. He has even been called out by fellow internet marketer Desmond Ong. (I know Desmond personally. He’s a nice guy. Certainly not a scammer.) Ian writes fake reviews about various internet marketers’ products, gives them bad ratings, and in turn promotes his own offer as a “credible” alternative, Wealthy Affiliate.

Roderick “Nathaniell” of One More Cup Of Coffee

Like Ian, he has written a lot of fake negative reviews about me as well as other credible marketers, giving my products a dismal ratings. He ends off his reviews by promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

Actually there are more like Ian and Nathaniel, and they all do the same thing. They write negative reviews about other marketers’ products, and in turn promote their own Wealthy Affiliate link. This strategy is unethical but it works, because these Wealthy Affiliates have managed to fool a lot of people out there.

I am thankful that there are some who are a bit more discerning and not easily fooled by negative reviews. Here’s what I read on an “Ewen Chia product review” which I found on YouTube:

Beware Of Reviews By Wealthy Affiliate

(“Black hat marketing” is just another way of saying unethical marketing.)

I want to thank the people who believe in me and the value that I give on a regular basis.

Note: I am not saying ALL Wealthy Affiliates are practicing this unethical marketing method. What I am saying is most of the people I’ve found who are writing fake negative reviews about me are promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

So before you come to your own conclusion, just remember that you can find pretty much everything and anything on the internet. You cannot take whatever information you find online at face value.
