Website Design and Online Marketing Course - Day 2


I attended the second day of the Web Design and Online Marketing course this morning, which was also the last day of the course conducted by Mr Robert Paragasam of Starz Smart Business at the Swiss Inn Hotel in Sungai Petani , Kedah. I wish there was a third, fourth or fifth day of the course.....but sigh.....it was not up to me to decide that. If it was up to me, I would have wanted to extend the course for a few more days.......as I felt like there was just so much more to learn from my Sifu (Robert). So much to learn....so little time. Time just flew by so fast and before I knew it , it was already 6 o'clock in the evening and it was time for me to go home.

Honestly, I really enjoyed today's subject.....ONLINE MARKETING! Who would have thought that this subject would be so interesting! Another eye opener for me! Yay!! Gosh....I think my eyes just kept popping  in disbelief every time Robert told me what are the things that can help me market my product online. I can't believe that there are so many channels or tools out there that can generate income into my business blogs and I never knew how powerful these tools are until today. I have been taking them for granted all the while. I kept thinking how ignorant I was about these things. Simple as they seem and yet powerful nonetheless. If I were to use it the right way, it would make a tremendous difference on my online business. I'm so grateful to have known about all this now. I do believe that the timing was perfect. God always knows best.  :)

Here are the topics that we manage to cover from 10.00am till 6.00pm today:

1) Introduction to Online Marketing
2) Learning to Use Autoresponders
3) How put the Facebook's LIKE button and using it effectively
4) How to Use Tell-A-Friend Button
5) How to do Link Exchanges
6) How to Market through Yahoo and Google
7) How to Market through Facebook effectively
8) How to create Your Own Videos and Market it
9) How to do Article Marketing
10) How to do Signature Marketing
11) How to Promote Your Business using Classifieds
12) How to market with a Blog.

Once you read the list, it does look like there is a lot of work to be done right? It sure does!!! Nothing comes easy in this world. It will take a lot of my time to use these tools to make it work for me. But no worries as I'm taking my time to do this at my own pace. I'll be following Robert's advice on how to manage all this tools on my own. I couldn't agree more with the methods he suggested to me as I believe what he is saying makes perfect sense.

Oh! Before I forget.....yesterday I completely forgot to take photos of the course, so today, I managed to do so with the help of Robert's sweet wife Kavitha. She helped me take photos of us during the course. The guy you see in the white t-shirt is Robert and the guy sitting across me is Mr. Ravi Maran, my one and only course mate! Nice guy! As you can see, we were the only two people who attended the two day course. That gave us the luxury of getting full attention from Robert. For me, the price I paid for the course this time was worth every penny. And to think that I almost  couldn't make it in the first place. But thanks to Robert, I was able to make it happen and make a difference in my life from today onwards. I walked out of that course today with a totally different mindset and feeling so blessed! :)

Hi, Lin.

I am glad that the course went so well for you. I am sure you will do great things with that website you plan on.

You are so enthusiastic about this course and I am sure you will be very successful with the online marketing.

You are very lucky to have such a small class - lots of individual attention from the instructors. What more could one want? Except for the course to go on and on and on!!!

Can't wait to see what you do with your website.

Wishing you all the best.

Hello Barb!

Yes! I hope I will be able to set up my website this year. I am not that good at it yet....I'm still learning how to do it. Baby steps...it's quite difficult to do, so much to think about in terms of design and technique.

I really hope to be able to be successful in online marketing. I really my dream to come true...God willing it all will with all the effort taken.

Thank you so much for the support!

Hugs,
Lin
