3 Self-Help Tips For Internet Marketing

Recently I had the opportunity to attend a 2-day Internet Business Live Seminar in Kuala Lumpur just to learn and pick up some insider secrets and future trends from 2 internet marketing gurus, Patric Chan (from Malaysia) and Ewen Chia (from Singapore).

Judging from crowd in the hundreds, I could see that there were many who showed very keen interest in internet business.

As an internet marketer myself, I need to constantly learn and be updated on new technologies, information and insights from others. I also have the chance to make new friends along the way.

It is also important to get out of the normal routine of just sitting on the chair and staring at the computer for long hours daily which can be physically stressful to the body.

Both these speakers shared about their own experiences on how they use their passion and found success in internet marketing.

They listed out 3 simple yet powerful self-help principles that they followed even before actually getting into the internet marketing business.

These are also principles that only 3% of successful internet marketers adhere to religiously.

1. Business built on proven system

It is crucial that in order to do an internet online business well that brings in consistent income, a proven system must be known and employed. It is just as simple as doing a correct method over and over again to achieve the desired results.

This may sound boring, but this is exactly what successful people do. The problem is people tend to change the system along the way, get distracted and try unproven trial and error methods. Then they wonder why they do not get the required results.

So lesson number 1, stick to a blueprint system.

2. Make goals with a deadline

It is not new that people are taught the importance of making goals in life. We see that especially when people makes new resolutions at the beginning of every new year. The problem is not in the goals setting but rather the lack of determination and urgency in achieving the set goals.

In other words, most unsuccessful people are not desperate enough to want to achieve the goal. The other reason is people do not put a clear deadline for the goal. So they procrastinate with no end in sight.

So lesson number 2, be desperate for success.

3. Do things that matter

There is a saying that goes like this, “Don’t sweat the small stuff”.

We all face this situation unconsciously especially while surfing the internet.

Normally people tend to use up a lot of time doing things which are unproductive first like reading emails, viewing YouTube videos, chatting on Facebook, playing online games which can be quite addictive, looking at some interesting offers not realizing a few hours have just been wasted easily.

The following is just to show how much time people spent averagely per session on Facebook alone!

Singapore 38 mins 46 sec
New Zealand 30 mins 31 sec
Australia 26 mins 27 sec
UK 25 mins 33 sec
US 20 mins 46 sec
France 21 mins 53 sec
India 20 mins 21 sec
Brazil 18 mins 19 sec

Therefore, the real work of building the internet business is not effectively done.

There are also people who like to figure out the technicalities of how things work rather than just using the available tools or resources.

A good illustration of this is travel by air. We do not need to understand how an airplane engine works in order to fly. We just board the plane to get to our destination, right?

Lesson number 3, do important and productive things.

Follow me in my next article where I will share with you the 5 Secrets of how Patric and Ewen build their internet business so successfully even after so many years.

4 Tips to Improve Your Putting

Putting is perhaps one of the most important aspects of golf and is a skill that can make or break a golfer’s game.

If you struggle with putting, you’re certainly not alone.

In fact, most people have had a case of the dreaded ‘yips’ at some point during their golfing career – me included!

The difficultly with putting is that you have to slightly adjust your technique according to the surface your putting on.

For instance, I regularly play at two different courses both of which have completely different greens.

One of the courses has lightening fast greens made from ‘bent grass’ and the other has slow greens that are made from normal grass.

I have to say, I find it very difficult to swap from one to another and it sometimes causes me to lose my timing which results in me stabbing at the ball instead of putting smoothly through it.

In general though, there are a few ways of achieving a more consistent putting technique and here is a small selection of quick-fire tips that should help improve this area of your game:

1. Choose a comfortable grip.

There are many different putting grips that you can experiment with.

Even the pro’s seem to change their grip every once in a while and you’ve probably seen some of the weird and wonderful variations that they come up with!

Every golfer is different, so every golfer is going to have a different grip that is most comfortable for him or her.

In general, try and find a grip that you’re comfortable with and then stick with it.

Consistently changing your grip will only make your putting inconsistent and that’s the last thing you want to happen.

You could even watch footage of professionals putting on YouTube.com and then try and copy their gripping techniques.

2. Keep your head still

This is one of the most important aspects of your putting technique.

Be sure that you always keep your head still until you’ve hit the ball and it’s rolling toward its destination.

If you move your head and follow your shot, your stance will shift and you’ll lose control of the golf ball. As a result, your shot won’t go where you intended.

I actually went to one of the British Open practice rounds at Royal St Georges a few years ago and remember watching Nick Faldo’s putting technique.

What he did was to keep his head in exactly the same position until the ball had reached the hole.

He wouldn’t look up at all and this guaranteed his head and stance would be dead still whilst he was putting through the ball. I actually tried this myself (and still do it) and it improved my putting literally overnight.

3. Practice your putting.

It’s an old trite saying, but it’s true, especially on the golf course: “Practice makes perfect.” Personally I always arrive early for my golf game to allow myself a little time to work on my putting tempo before teeing off.

4. Every putt should be treated the same way.

Your stance and set up should be the same for every putt you make.

A good rule of thumb is to practice your stance when putting until it becomes second nature.

Also make sure you place the golf ball properly in your stance.

When the golf ball is positioned properly, you won’t have to
