3 Things I learned on My First Day in AIM

First Days in AIM

This week is very significant for me in my blogging/ internet marketing career. It is my first time to teach in the Internet Marketing elective in the AIM MBA class and the first day of Maven Secrets.

Here are the 3 Things I learned on My First Day in AIM:

1. I'm now a professor...
I felt old at the same time honored. The label of  "professor" or "guru", I think needs to be earned and since I'm just starting, I'm here to prove that I'm worthy of the title. I like to be Professor X of the X-Men who nurture young people to enhance their  natural capabilities.  (Not the stereotyped image of an old power tripping professor)

A Personal Invitation to Become a Maven!

Primary Logo Colored

Congratulations to Lord for winning the Maven Secrets Scholarship Contest! His "Fresh Buko ala Ube Ice Cream" blog post stood out from all the entries. Why did I choose his entry? 

First, I've never been to the Balatoc Gold Mine in Baguio. 
Second, his entire post is entertaining for someone who is just starting to blog. 
Third, I like his advocacy and I want to help him launch it effectively. 
Fourth, I would have entitled the entire post as Fresh Buko ala Ube Ice Cream as a headline. 
Fifth, it was a toss up between his entry and the Artful Hooker's entry. But I promise only one.
Sixth, he had me at the Buko ala Ube Ice Cream -- I'm craving for one now.
Seventh, the photos he used with his ballerina gf were eye catching.
Eight, I like his natural passion of living life to the fullest.
Ninth, If someone was to surpass OAP, I would like him/her to be coming from Maven Secrets :)

I'm giving a 40% off discount to the 2nd and 3rd prize winner.

What did the Pilot Class say About the Maven Secrets Program?

I got a lot of questions about the Maven Program specifically about what the program is about. Here is a short video on what the Maven Secrets Pilot Class say about the program.

Blog Makeover (Webinar Part 2)


Due to insistent blog readers' demand, I'm doing a webinar part 2 this coming Friday. I will send out the invite to the Maven Secrets mailing list within the day. 

Also, I decided to release the recording of the the first webinar -- but exclusively to the Maven Secrets mailing list. I was hesitant at first to share it because it contains the well-guarded secrets of Professional Bloggers. It also provides answers to your questions directly.

Your Internet Marketing, Professional Blogging and "How to Quit Your Day Job" Questions Answered!

Join us for a Webinar on June 9! I'm running a webinar for my Maven Secrets subscribers and OAP readers who might be interested to know the answers to these sent questions. I plan to answer all the questions as honestly and frankly as possible. This is part of my pre-launch for the Maven Secrets Program. I do hope you can join us...

Professional Blogging Questions (10 Questions)
1) Would you know if there are blogsites by Filipinos that have
succeeded worldwide? What do you think would it take for us to succeed
out there?
2) Is it a good idea to immediately load my website with adsense
and other ad panels even if I'm just starting out (with only about
a dozen blog posts)? Or should I wait until I have enough traffic?
3) Which advertising program will pay a publisher directly to
Paypal and not through checks or direct deposit?
4) Please name specific ad programs that are suitable for Pinoys
to make more money in blogging.
5) How can I improve my adsense ads in my blog?
6) How can I earn from blogging without compromising my content
in order to cater to the requirements of a certain sponsor
(payu2blog, etc.)?
7) How economically feasible is blogging? Can you provide, at
least, a range [of possible revenues]? How much do you earn per
8) How many hours a week do you spend on it?
9) First question I have would be: What is the most important thing
I need to learn if I intend to make a career out of blogging, since
I really want to be a stay-at-home mom? (Do i need to study
programming, take writing lessons, SEO?)
10) If I already have a blog, how do I make it more marketable?

Entrepreneur's Home Based Businesses 101 Talk

Entrepreneur's 1st networking night series

I would like to invite you to my 10-minute talk on Entrepreneur's Home Based Businesses 101 tomorrow April 21, 2009 in Whistlestop Jupiter from 6pm to 9pm. I was featured in the April issue of Entrepreneur Magazine for my internet marketing business.

I decided to talk about the 10 different proven business models on the Internet. Did you know that my blog income through ads is only 10% of my total income? Earning money through blog ads is the lowest form of earning money online. In fact, I plan to remove all advertising in OAP within the year.
