How To Manage Your Time For Internet Marketing

Everyone has the same 24 hours and why is it that some of us seems to be able to accomplish more?

Time is of essence and you must manage it efficiently so that you can maximise the usage and eventually accomplish more in the same period of time.

Today, you will learn how you can manage your internet marketing tasks and time so that you can be more focus, get more things done and become more efficient and productive.

Time management is especially important when it comes to internet marketing. This is because you will be marketing online and no one will wait for you. Any delay in your website creation, marketing efforts, or simple email reply can cause your revenue to drop.

Hence, your speed and efficiency of managing time will have an impact in your internet income.

This post will introduce a guide to help you manage your time for internet marketing.

Plan

First, do not every start your task immediately. Instead, take some time to think and brainstorm a list of internet marketing tasks that will help you reach you goals. Plan what are the tasks that are required to be accomplish today.

Decide And Prioritise

Next, ask yourself what is the most crucial task that needs to accomplish first. For internet marketers, depends what project that you are handling, then you may have different priority. However, you should always  have at least one task that is about marketing.

The reason is simple: Marketing is the activity that will bring you leads and sales.

Timeline

After that, you can proceed to do your tasks. However, set a time frame for each task so that you can be more effective. Be realistic and practical about the time limit.

When you are working on your task, stick to the timeline and give yourself a little nudge to speed things up if needed.

Stay Organised

Fact, when you’re unorganized, you get less done. To improve the use of your time, get organized.  Make sure you’re working in a clean and professional environment, even if only working from a laptop at your kitchen table.

Outsource When Required

For task that requires some additional skills that you may need time to learn or acquire, outsource these tasks instead of spending more time to perform the task. It may required money but it frees you the time to do other task, hence making you more effective.

Remember that time is much more valuable than money. So, you don’t want to be wasting your time trying to design a banner when you outsource it for as little as just $5.

Shut Off The Distraction

Many internet marketers had a bad habit of opening up many browser tabs all at once. Do not do this. Only open the tabs that are required. In addition, be focus work on your task and do not surf the net or check your Facebook.

Mobile phone can be another major distraction. Check them only when you are having a break.If there is phone call that you really need to take, go ahead and then come back to complete your task again.

Hope this help you to manage your time in internet marketing and see you in the next post.

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.

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.

3 Tips To Improve Your Internet Marketer Lifestyle

If you are starting your journey into Internet Marketing, there is a good chance that it has some effects on your lifestyle.

Full time Internet Marketers usually have a lot of spare time on their hands due to to their work-anywhere-anytime schedule they usually lead a very stationary lifestyle as well.

This will have some serious effects on your daily life as well. Being shut in your house day after day is a sure fire way to have many physical and mental health issues creep up on you. This guide will help you avoid some of the possible problems that you may face when you start working full time on the internet.

1.) Couch Potato Syndrome

Being an Internet Marketer makes it possible to never have to leave the seat that you are in to do any of your work. It is not only possible for you to sit on the same chair, at the same spot for your work throughout the entire day, your office space is probably home to a large variety of snacks from the supermarket as well.

One possible way to counteract this particular effect is to ensure that all of your work is done outside the house.

Most of us has mobile data and a computer or laptop with a decent battery life that is possible to have the work to be done in a park or at the beach.

Imagine working on your internet business online, away from the quiet and boredom of your house. Doesn’t that sound nice? The best part is, immediately after your work is done, you can go for a quick workout before you head home.

2.) Being Alone

Another major hurdle that you may face is the lack of any friends or associates that are willing to stick with you as you start your journey into internet marketing. Having someone that is able to support you as you work would be geat.

The easiest method for you to have your own group of like minded individuals is to join social media groups that are also interested in Internet Marketing as well.

There are many platforms that are able to support you, in return, the people that you meet may ask you for help as well.

You can also hang out on forums and chatrooms that are related to your interests as well. Not everything has to be related to work, after all.

3.) Socializing

Just because you are working remotely does not mean that you have to live under a rock. There are plenty of offline events that you can attend in order for you to boost your personal social network and also to find someone to talk to.

There are also plenty of offline events that you may consider. These events may not always have to be related to Internet Marketing.

You could also use these events as a good opportunity for you to market yourself and network with people.

Networking is an important part of any business. An internet business would need it too, and without it you will have a hard time trying to get more business incoming into your business.

Now, let’s become a healthy and happy internet marketer together.

May you get succeed in the year 2018 and achieve all your goals you have set.
Happy New Year!

“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great!”

This is a famous quote from Les Brown, who is one of the top American motivational speakers in the world. Some time back, I had the privilege to share the same stage with him and this quote from him stayed in my mind.

lesbrown

“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great”

How much do you understand from this quote?

If you wish to earn $10,000 a month from the internet, then you need to take action and start doing things to achieve this goal.

The quote is very true and applies to all aspects of our lives.  For example, if you want to be healthier and lose weight, then you need to start exercising.  If you want to improve any aspect of your life, then you need to do something about it.

I firmly believe that each of us have our own dreams and goals in our lives. No matter how simple the dream or goal is, you need to take action on it. If not, you’ll never reach your desired outcome.

For the past 10 years, I’ve been training thousands of students around the world about the internet business, and one common advice I gave to them is:

To be EXACT and  SPECIFIC about their income goals.

Meaning, you must know what you want exactly, in order to achieve it.

You cannot get something you do not know you want.

For example, if you want to make money online, you need to know exactly how much and the timeline.

Something like “I want to make a lot of money online!” doesn’t quite cut it.

This shows you’re not specific, or motivated enough to get it.

Instead, it should be specific and to the point like:

“I want to make $1,500 in my first 30 days online”

Only when we know our destination, can we reach it.

Combine this with the right mindset, attitude and action, and…

NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!

In the internet business, there are many people who like to give excuses such as the lack of technical skills or know-how to operate an online business.

This is simply an excuse.

Everything can be overcome – if you want to.

For example, it takes very minimal “basic tech skills” to do this business. Most times, it’s about filling in forms, copying and pasting things around and following instructions.

Seriously!

What about knowledge?

You can join courses or training to get yourself equipped with the right education.

For example, you can join my online and offline programs to do just that.

I’ve started various programs to help people who have absolutely zero knowledge about the internet business so that they can get started almost immediately.

There’re even “done for you programs” to CREATE the business for you, and taking away 90% of the hardest work so you can focus on the marketing!

Examples of such programs I run include www.DoneForYouInternetBusiness.com, www.AutoIncomeMachine.com, www.Cashsit.es and www.CompleteBusinessSetUp.com

When I first started my online business in 1997, none of such advantages existed and it was a huge struggle for myself to even understand the business initially.

But I never gave up!

And YOU shouldn’t too.

Like most people, I’m not born with the knowledge to build a profitable online business. However, we need to take the first step to learn and then take action on what we learned.

You’ll definitely have a few falls but things will work out with the proper practice, guidance and momentum.

Lets talk about “momentum”…

It’s never easy to get started but once you do, it’s like a “wheel” that keeps turning and creating momentum, so it becomes easier and more habitual.

The number 1 enemy for not getting starting is not the lack of skills or knowledge, but procrastination.

We find “reasons” to do it some other days or find “excuses” that it is not the right time to do it.

My suggestion?

JUST START DOING IT.

Let me bring you back to the quote that started this post…

“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great”

Be Great :-)

My Last Post…For 2012 – Welcome 2013! :-)

I know I know! Haven't updated my blog for a long time. That's going to change in 2013 :-)

How time flies, another year is gone and a New Year is beginning. With that…

I sincerely wish you and your family a very
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 and best of health,
wealth and happiness in ALL you do!

Have you made your RESOLUTIONS for 2013?

Or do you find them "useless"…

Honestly, a resolution is simply an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of your goals and what you want in your life. And you DO need to know what you want in your life, and then work hard at achieving them.
 
It's as "simple" as that.
 
Well obviously there are going to be some obstacles along the way and you'll feel lazy and undisciplined (we're humans!) but…

The only way to achieve your goals is to overcome your inertia and DO IT!
 
This applies to almost anything and everything in your life, just like mine.

Thus, resolutions aren't only for the New Year…but they should be…

DAILY, WEEKLY and MONTHLY!
 
I mean – set goals and achieve them. That's all there is to it isn't it? At least you TRY.

Same goes for internet marketing and especially if you want to make money online…

Face it – it's a BUSINESS…and you need to BUILD IT UP.

Think about it and make your decision.

This is the PERFECT TIME to do it as we're heading into the New Year.

Life is short!

I'm going to leave you with a REPORT I just written called…
 
 
and I sincerely hope it give you a direction to go with (and it's a very important one!)

Take care once again and Happy New Year!

To Your Success,

Ewen

I haven’t been writing for awhile because I’ve been trying to find myself. Trying to live a purposeful life that I WANT can be difficult at times.

There’re so many things that I want to do but there are limitations as well. Sometimes I wish I could fly away but we’ve responsibilities to other people besides ourselves, for example, family.

I know I may not be making sense because I’m in a pretty pensive mood.

However, within our limitations and with what we currently have now, count your blessings and give thanks.

Cherish whatever we have and live with purpose and passion.

Many of us work our lives off, trying to make a living. Fact is, life is more than money and money will never be enough.

Wealth and happiness comes to those with the correct mindset. The correct mindset will attract what we secretly desire.

IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH YOUR MIND AND KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, we need to know what we want to attract it.

Obviously we can also attract negative things and that starts from thinking of the negative, which we tend to do naturally.

So we must be consciously positive at all times, even in the face of problems.

Look at it this way, we’ll always have problems and they will never go away, so make the best of it!

I know it’s easier than it sounds. Trust me, I know.

One way I’ve found to be positive is to give myself some space and care. Meaning, thinking of myself for once.

I do that by pursuing what I love aggressively and with a goal. Be it a person, topic or simply a hobby.

Many of you know I love music. It heals the soul and connects people from all walks of life and nationalities.

If there’s ONE thing that brings the world together, it’s music.

Music has been with me since I was young. In fact in my younger days, I used it to escape to imaginary faraway places.

Listening to all types of songs and closing my eyes helps to relieve the realities of the real world, even for a moment. It’s re-energizing.

Music is often positive in nature so I believe it’s one of the best ways to cultivate a positive mentality!

While I was growing up, I was a quiet, introverted, romantic and extremely dreamy person. No one really knows my true feelings, including myself.

The good part was, I’m also always an action taker.

I needed a way to express my emotions and took to music. Unfortunately I never had the chance, environment or money to learn it correctly while I was growing up. I’ve always envied kids who could learn music. I had to teach myself, which didn’t help.

Since I’ve more time now, I’ve decided to pursue the love of creating music which I’ve stopped for 10 years since discovering the internet.

I’ve even started professional music training and bought myself a grand piano just to prove the point!

Yamaha Clarinova Digital Grand Piano

And for the first time since I was 27 years old, I wrote a new song…it’s a love song.

I will probably release this soon and hope to get good comments from you guys.

…Stay tuned!

We all have our own dreams and aspirations. I encourage you to strive for your dreams just like I’m doing. We only have one life.

Songwriting and being a professional performer is one of mine, since I was young.

One day I’ll even record a music video and maybe turn into a Youtube star :-)

Because secretly in my heart, I want to be a rockstar!

What have you done this week?

Ewen ChiaI’ve read many self improvement books since I was a teenager (not that long ago!) and the common thread among most of them is…

Write down your goals!

It’s a simple task that works to steer your mind but 99% of us DON’T do it.

Well I don’t either. Not often enough anyway.

Lets not even talk about New Year resolutions lol.

Have you heard about creating a “Life List”?

For example, 10 things you would want to do before your time on earth is up.

It’s a grand goal indeed when most people don’t even KNOW what they want. Think about it.

“You can’t achieve what you want – when you don’t even know what you want.”

That’s my own invented little quote by the way. Hope it makes sense.

Even though we don’t often write down our goals, I think it’s important to at least do something meaningful every week.

Stuff that enrich our lives and plant memories in our minds as grand experiences.

It could be little things or big things, doesn’t matter.

What have you done this week you can REMEMBER?

I can’t remember many things as I’m a rather forgetful person, however some things when done can be easily remembered because of the FEELINGS and EXPERIENCES attributed to them.

It could be simple things like watching a great movie, or doing something “out of the ordinary” than what you’ll normally do.

For example, I travel often and hardly watches movies on the plane as I’ll be on my computer. I do remember 3 months back when I did decide to watch 3 movies in a row though. Really enjoyed Wolverine too. Brings out the animal in me 😉

Just yesterday, I caught Shrek Forever After in 3D and it was GREAT. Really nice kids movie that made me feel young and happy again.

In fact I did a lot of things this week I can easily remember…

I launched this new blog, worked on a major business plan, spoke at length with my lawyer, bought a new car! (no, the events are not related to each other)

Here’s the car, it’s a Mercedes M Class:

Mercedes Mclass

Cars in Singapore are crazily expensive because of taxes etc. and I paid over S$250,000 for it. But it’s worth it because of the EXPERIENCE now and in the future.

I don’t profess to be a Mercedes fan but I’ve still got my other Eclass coupe which is simply AMAZING…

Mercedes Eclass Coupe

I’m sharing this with you to hopefully inspire you.

I’m an ordinary guy who got a start on the internet and became successful because I KNEW, WANTED and TASTED success even before I succeeded.

That’s the key – it’s about wanting it bad enough.

Some people call it the…

BURNING DESIRE!

Do YOU have that?

You must have it to succeed in ANYTHING – life, business, relationships.

The starting point?

WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU REALLY WANT, SEE IT EVERY DAY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – WORK TOWARDS YOUR GOAL – EVERY DAY!

Nothing happens overnight but it will happen if you want it to.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gain.”

Stick to your guns.
