2 weeks ago, I attended the Profit Blogging Workshop which was organised by AsiaOnline Mastery Sdn Bhd at Crystal Crown Hotel, PJ. Thanks for SC.Wong for the invitation to this valuable workshop. Initially, my purpose of attending was to find out MORE on how blogging can be a source of part-time income and subsequently turning it into a full time income.
During the workshop, I felt glad to meet up with the 2 Blogging Master cum speakers, Steven Wong and Melvin Ng(The Smart Guy in Black Suit). I found them to be knowledgeable, sincere and approachable. In fact, during my conversation with them, I discovered that their passion for conducting the Profit Blogging Workshop was to show more Malaysians how they can increase their income through blogging, as they had done it themselves.
According to them, blogging is one of the easiest and fastest way to make money online that only requires minimal time and investment. The setup cost is negligible and it is suitable for someone with no web designing, programming or even IT technical knowledge.
During their presentation, they shared their 5 Points Profit Blogging System which they personally use, the 3 secrets of successful blogging, and the 3 major reasons why people fail in blogging. Check out the agenda of the workshop from the photo captured in the workshop.
In my opinion, this Profit Blogging Workshop serves as a foundation for people who want to make money on the Internet. I learned that to be successful in blogging or any Internet business, we need to have a ‘Proven System’ and the correct mentoring, which the Profit Blogging Workshop can provide..
Steven and Melvin will be conducting the Profit Blogging Bootcamp on 5th & 6th July 2008. For further info, check out their website at http://asiaonlinemastery.com/
