I met up with one of Malaysia’s top Internet Marketers today, Gobala Krishnan, who stopped in Singapore for a day trip.
Gobala was down to collect some equipment and we met up for lunch and hung out for a few hours.
Gobala Krishnan and Andrew Wee
It was a good opportunity to meet up with Gobala since I’d be marketing his WordPress blogging package since last August.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the package, do look at the page and I’m sure it’ll help you bring your blogging to the next stage, just like it has done for me. He’d also mentioned that I’m all-time top affiliate for the product.
Gobala’s been busy launching his project 100% Malaysian and has been busy preparing for his next project, due next month.
Gobala’s pretty well known and if you haven’t, you should check out GobalaKrishnan.com. What I’d found inspiring was his story about how he’d gone from a full time job to full time Internet Marketing. Read: Do I Regret Quitting My Job. It was one of my sources of encouragment in my early days.
Over the course of our talk, I also squeezed three tips to help bring your blogging to a new level.
Take it away, Gobala:
- Target Your Niche
You can either focus directly on a niche, or approach a general topic, and differentiate yourself by your blogging style.
- “Here’s something I learned from Andrew Wee. Participate in the community”
Participate in forums, visit other blogs, leave comments. This will help you generate traffic and build relationships with other online marketers (positioning yourself for possible joint ventures).
- “Here’s a tip for your niche marketing efforts”
You can locate established Internet Marketing players who have produced several ebooks and videos. You can blog about them, not so much as a worship blog, but rather you can get into their affiliate program and understand their marketing system. You can also expand on the information contained in their ebooks. At the same time, you can add adsense to this blog, to derive some income from readers who don’t buy any products.
It was a good opportunity to compare our experiences and I picked up a number of new strategies which I’m planning to apply to my blogging and product creation efforts.
