Day 31: USD5,000 this month!


Yes! I've got RM15,000.00 injected into my accounts!

This is because I've successfully sold my school bus.

So, I've got something like USD4,262.00 as of today's exchange FOREX rates.


I know that some of you are reading this and may me incredulous, right?

I think some of you may have thought after reading the headlines that I've cracked the IM code and now earning USD5,000/mth, isn't it?

No. I've only earned it because of an off-line event that happened in my life.

Folks, you must know that money comes from all forms of channels.

I learn something about "rezki" and that I should look for it in permissible forms as much as humanly possible.

And that I should believe that "reski" comes from God and He will channel it in any forms from anywhere at anytime.

This is going to be a short blog for today and tomorrow, I'll be blogging about what my next step in my Internet Marketing(IM) career is going to be like.

Cheers! and God Bless!

Day 26: Need to stay focused!


I believe that everyone would face this “beast” many times in their lifetime!

This “beast” is one of the many reasons why so many newbie to Internet Marketing struggle to achieve their goal(s).

When they cannot achieve their goal(s), it is because of one of three things and that is:

1. They succumb to the “beast” and go off the ‘right’ path to follow another (wrong) path, did not , realized their mistake and they eventually reach the ‘point-of-no-return’, or

2. They succumb to the “beast” and go off the ‘right’ path to follow another (wrong) path, realized their mistake but does not return to the ‘right’ path; because of reasons such as fear and/or shame and they eventually reach the ‘point-of-no-return’.

3. They succumb to the “beast” and go off the ‘right’ path to follow another (wrong) path but realized their mistake and quickly return to the ‘right’ path; unfortunately, a certain amount of time has passed, or

Those who achieve their goal(s) is due to the fact that they did not succumb to the “beast”.

Such Internet Marketer has developed well trained “capabilities” to defeat or avoid the “beast”.

One’s “capabilities” can exist because of getting an excellent guide or the I-Marketer has developed it through Trial and Error or through constant mistakes and learning from them.

As the “beast” has the capability to transform itself to many forms, the successful Internet Marketer also has the ability to fend off its attacks with many disciplines.

One key capability of the successful Internet Marketer is the ability to stay FOCUSED on what tasks are the most important to undertake at the right time.

Internet Marketing is just like any REAL business (whether it is on-line or off).

Successful businesses become successful because of serious businessmen.

If one where to treat it otherwise, then the income will turn out to be a joke.

So, what is this “beast” that I am talking about?


This is one MONSTER that can be hard for me to put down as I always get myself caught in its grasp and it wouldn’t easily let me go.

However, I have learnt a lot since the beginning of 2006 on how to stay focused in my Internet Marketing / Internet Based Business so as to make it a success and that is to stay disciplined and focus my thoughts as if it is a laser beam that can cut through any obstacles.

This period of time is the most successful for me as I have taken the right steps and that is to engage a trustworthy guide: Mr Cruz Ramirez who have an excellent map to show me the most shortest way to the top of mount GDI.

So successful that on day 26 of my 30 day challenge, I’ve got one more signup to my GDI business.

Day 18: Learn Faster!!!


One of things about Internet Marketing(IM), or the term that I personally love to use: Internet Based Business(IBB), that can drive a ‘newbie’ nuts is that there is a lot of materials to read.

It is just like back in the school days, especially my Secondary School(High School) days, when I had 8 subjects to learn every week.

I bet that you’d like to know what my 8 subjects are, eh?

  1. English as 1st language
  2. Malay as 2nd language
  3. Mathematics (A Syllabus)
  4. Mathematics (D Syllabus)
  5. Literature
  6. Biology
  7. Science (Physics + Chemistry)
  8. Islamic Religious Knowledge

Not to mention that we had to do ECA(Extra Curricular Activities) which usually needs the student to do 1 Club + 1 Sport or just 1 Uniformed Group like Boys Brigade or Boy’s Scouts etc.

Imagine that you had to finish reading 8 textbooks every week and you also had to go thru exercise classes to get your body fit!

I think that’s why there were some people who still get recurring nightmares about their secondary school’s leaving examinations even until today. (Yours truly, included)

Why do we have to go thru this? I feel that life’s education system is so unfair! And to top it off, some of the things that you learn you don’t use it when you are an adult!

Anyway, I digress.

I’m feeling the pressure of my childhood schooldays nowadays.

I’ve got so much things to learn about my IM/IBB plus I have to put it into action that if I were to write down all the things that I have to do, I believe that it will look like this:

The above chart is courtesy of Rich Schefren of who I admire dearly because of his reports that he have a habit of giving it away for free.

And his reports is incredibly insightful and earth shaking because many who reads it behaves differently after reading them.

Plus, Rich has a philosophy of giving away your best products for free and make money anyway from something else.

More on Rich at a later post or you can know more about it from this website:

Today is Day 18 and I think that by this stage, I should have accumulated close to half or if not more of my targeted $1000.00 isn’t it?

So far, I’ve got something like USD170.00 from TGAPS(Tissa Godavitarne ACME People Search) System.

And I’ve spent USD(29.95+10.00+10.00+10.00) = USD59.95

Now, if I hit USD200.00 from GTAPS, then I’d get my money transferred to PayPal. (That means that I get paid.)

I’m short of USD30.00 for TGAPS

From GDI, I’m going to get USD2.00/mth because of the 2 signups that I have.

So, if things don’t change as it is, I’d be looking at –USD57.95 in my PayPal account.

If I get 2 more signups for GTAPS/TGAPS before the end of this month, I’d get USD202.00.

So, my plan now is to get 2 more signups for GTAPS/TGAPS before the end of this month, so that I’d get USD202.00.

Plus, I’ve read Joseph Then’s report about “How to Make $100 in One Week”, and I’m already doing the first steps of the method discussed by him and I am sure I’ll be getting that $100 within 7 days.

Wish me luck!

Day 14: One more signup! Thank You!


I remembered when I was working at my last employment, I had to do sales next to this group of
guys selling a kitchen appliance; and everytime they close a sale, they would all together shout out:

"Thank You!"

And this would sometime go quite regularly when sales were very brisk for them!

And this vocal response to every sale they did was very empowering because of the verbal que and the response-in-gratitude phenomena.

So, today i would like to start something similar albeit in a visual text form where if I were to get a new sign-up, I would blog about it here and "shout-out"


I realized that I need to "capture" the screen of my GDI or ACME-People-Search so that people will see for themselves my successes:

* Click on the image to enlarge.

I sincerely hope that with the evidence I submit above, it shows that the business that I am in is not a scam and it does truly allow you to earn an income!

With this new signup, I'd me making something like $170.00!

Not bad, eh? For doing what you are asked to do by people who did the same and did not deviate from their path of success.

God! I am sooooo sleeeeepy! And I am also like hearing voices in my head as I am nodding off to sleep whilst typing this blog!

Here is the one from GDI:

I have to strike off their names and other details because of privacy issues.

Day 10.1: GDI - 2 GTAPS - 3


Good news today: I've got some sign-ups!

Hoo Ahr!!!

2 confirmed from GDI(Global Domains International) and 3 from GTAPS(GDI-Twitter-ACME-People-Search).

So, I'm going to get $165.00 from GTAPS and $2.00/mth from GDI.

Cool eh?

Day 10: What spurred me to do this?


One of the events that happened that made me set my mind up to do Global Domains International(GDI) as my current focus for succeeding in my Internet Based Business is right after I read Ewen Chia's report: "How to Make Your First $1,000 Online In Just 30 Days!"

Just reading the title of the e-book made my eyes grow wide with the realization that succeeding in any business is about setting a target income and than work towards it.

I realized that if I were to aim for RM1,000.00 per month, that would definitely work for me because currently, I am earning less than that.

And if I can do something on the Internet that can earn me a steady income of RM1,000.00 per month, praise God!

I could probably quit my 80 hours a week job and stay at home to work less hours but still earn the same amount of money.

Plus, the equivalent of RM1,000.00 is roughly USD$300.00 at current exchange rate of USD$1.00 = RM3.50. Actually, if I earn USD$300.00 per month, I'd be getting RM1,050.00 per month!

So I went about assessing what are the available methods that I can get involved in to earn me USD$300.00 per month and I am talking PER MONTH here.

Not a method that gives me a one off income and then I have to work hard at doing it again for another potential customer.

Wouldn't it be great that you can introduce to a potential customer once and than after that potential decides to become your customer, he/she "buys" your product but keeps "paying" you every month as long as he/she wants to keep "using" your service?

And if you can get several tens or even hundreds of such customers, your earnings would increase multiple times.

Now, at the time of reading Ewen Chia's e-book, I was doing Work For 3 Dollars(W4$3), but I feel that I'd have difficulty hitting my target of USD$300.00 per month because I'd have to signup 600 new people per month!

Why 600?

That's because each new person that I introduce to W4$3 would earn me USD$0.50.

To me, 600 new people per month is difficult!

So I went about looking for something else that can earn me a steady flow of income even though the potential only signup once but keeps being a member of that website's service or product.

Also, that website's service or product should not be too expensive to maintain.

One website that I could think of now is Global Domains International(GDI), because each signups will let me earn USD$1.00 per month.

And being a member or GDI is not too expensive: USD$10.00 per month.

Tell me of a business that costs you USD$10.00 per month but has the potential of earning you whatever amount your heart desire.

And you don't have to stock up on potions or lotions that you don't use at all.

GDI is all about the internet and internet websites and anyone who accesses the internet and wants to setup websites for any reason, should look at GDI.

GDI is not only a website solution provider but also an internet based business solution provider.

One thing wonderful about GDI is that it is an Multi Level Referral based system.

That means that I can leverage on my signups to get more signups!

And every signups that they get earns me USD$1.00 per month!

So, my plan is to get my first 10 members so that I can get USD$10.00 per month which would help pay for my membership.

In other words, once 10 members is achieved, my GDI membership is free!

Imagine that my 10 members does the same thing. That means that each of my first 10 members gets 10 members. How much do I earn per month?

USD$110.00 per month.

That's because there is 100 members in that level.

Now, what if that 100 members does exactly the same thing I did and does 10 signups each. How much do I earn per month?

USD$1110.00 per month and that is equivalent to RM3,885.00 per month!

I believe that if that happens, I'd stop working and stay at home and be my own boss!

Day 6: Tissa Godavitarne


There are many people in the Internet Marketing(IM) World who calls themselves Gurus and promise to teach interested members how to make money on the internet by following their methodologies.

Then, there are those who don't call themselves gurus but still do the same thing.

Then, there are those who are anti-gurus and they seem to act like experts in the IM World and do the same thing.

Ande, all of the above mention gurus/non-gurus/experts in IM World would do the same thing and that they will sell you something like an e-book or membership for some form of training and they'd teach you to sell to your friends/relative/colleagues the same things that they have sold you for a commission.

And then, some people wonder how do these people make money?

Then, there is Tissa Godavitarne who I feel is the real deal because he want's you to succeed not by buying anything from him but by setting your own Affiliate Marketing System which he is going to share with you how he does it and it is up to you to follow.

He is like a really nice guy and i want you to judge him yourself by visiting this 2 links.

The first is a video:

The second is this website:

I hope that you learn something from here and take massive actions to make something worthwhile!

Day 5: Twitter!


I think that I may have made a mistake with how I am using my Twitter account to promote my Internet Based Business: GDI-Twitter-ACME-People-Search(GTAPS) Business System.

I have just read a posting from Administrator about how
members should or should not do on Twitter whilst using

Here is the reproduction:
Notes From The Administrator

Date Created: 05-20-2009 To: All Affiliates
Don't Do This, Please.
Do not repeatedly tweet the same message on your Twitter account, or on
several Twitter accounts with your affiliate link.

Not only will you annoy your followers, and lose followers. By repeatedly
tweeting the same message you are violating Twitter's spam rules, and you
could get your Twitter account suspended.

You will NEVER make sales by annoying people. Never. Don't do it.

How To Promote TweetLater
With TweetCockpit, I hear everything that's being said on Twitter about
TweetLater. I frequently see your tweets come by that contain your
affiliate link. :-) Some folks even retweet them for you. Gives me a good
chuckle. LOL

That's a good way to promote TweetLater, but it's not the method that's
going to get you the most conversions and earn you the most money.
The three primary keywords you must remember when it comes to conversions
are: Authenticity, Trust, and Personal Experience.

Think of most TV ads. They show (supposedly) real people telling you how
they used and benefited from the product. That's no accident. It's
because that method works.

Tweeting your affiliate link may drive visitors to the TweetLater site
via your link, but you can expect to have a rather poor conversion rate
(signups and upgrades versus number of visitors).

The best way to promote TweetLater is to follow the simple process I've
outlined below:

1) Use TweetLater and TweetLater Professional yourself. If you can't
afford to upgrade, at the very least do the free 7-day trial.

2) Make notes of what you like about both Free and Professional as you
use it. If you can keep stats of how much time it saves you, or other
ways it benefits you, even the better. Take screenshots that you can
illustrate if you know how to do graphics, or capture a video if you can
do that. Folks love videos.

3) Then write a blog post where you tell your visitor how YOU have used
TweetLater, and how YOU have benefited from it. If you don't already have
a blog, then write a Squidoo lens, or a Hubpages page, or create a blog, a Blogger blog, or a blog.

Doesn't matter, just get it up somewhere. It's not important if your page doesn't rank in
Google. You just want a landing page that contains your first-hand (and
listen) authentic personal experience with TweetLater. On this page,
include your affiliate link in several places (make it easy for the
visitor to find and click on your affiliate link).

4) Now write your tweets and send your DMs, but don't put your affiliate
link in them, put a link to your landing page in them. And tell the folks
why they should go to that page and read what you have written. Something
like, "How TweetLater saves me 2 hours every single day: [link]", or
"Here's my first-hand experience with TweetLater: [link]". Now it becomes
much easier for you to invite folks, because you're not just sending them
off to a distant site, you are in a sense inviting them in for a cup of
tea (your landing page) and telling them your own personal story. It
smells much less like sales, and your visitors will have lowered their
guard, which we all put up when we smell a sales pitch.

Why will this increase your conversions?

It tells a personal story. Your story. (Remember the TV ads?) On the
TweetLater pages, I can only tell folks how they CAN use TweetLater. On
your landing page, you can tell folks how you HAVE used and ARE using
TweetLater, and how it helps and benefits you every single day. People
will far easier identify with your story.

When people come to TweetLater via your landing page, with your story
fresh in their minds, it will be much easier for them to visualize how
TweetLater will benefit them. And that's the process that you really want
to trigger, namely their own visualization and imagination. Accomplish
that, and you have an almost guaranteed upgrade.

With this two-step process (point people to your landing page, and from
there to TweetLater), you may send fewer folks on to TweetLater (some
won't make it past your landing page), but that does not matter. The
number of visitors is not as important as how ready the visitors are to
buy when they get to TweetLater. It's better to send 20 people, of whom
50% (10) upgrade, than to send 200 people of whom 2% (4) upgrade.

If (when) you have a landing page, feel free to send me the link to and ask me to take a look at it. I'll be happy
to help you where I can.

Best regards,

Dewald Pretorius

Who Is Your Target Market?
Joe or Mary who has one Twitter account and just chats with a handful of
followers is probably not going to need TweetLater Professional.

To get the best bang for your promotional efforts, focus on the following

- Internet marketers
- Marketing professionals in general
- Businesses
- Bloggers who want to spread the content of their blogs with Blog Feed accounts
- People with multiple Twitter accounts
- Heavy users of Twitter, even if they have only one account
- Anyone else who can save time and become more productive with our tools


Some of you may be thinking that what will Alief be doing next?

I'm going to do what the maker of is suggesting and create
a special blog just like what he says above.

This blog is supposed to be Day 5's but as you and I may have noticed, I
am a day late because I usually type my blogs late at night and usually after 12 midnight.

I really want to do more of my work early in the morning but so far, I have not been able to do so because of family reasons.

This situation is like no different if I am away at my last job(roughly 10am to
10pm) and then do my internet marketing(IM) work after that(usually 12am
to 3am).

But, this has got to change as I REALLY WANT to make this work.

I can list a lot of reasons why working from home or working for yourself
is the best way to make a living.

More on this later.

Day 2: How?


Last night, I was typing away at my 2nd entry into my blog and all of a sudden, all of that 1 hours work suddenly went away.

I sat in front of my laptop, stunned!

I was so sleepy and so tired yesterday night/early morning because of my efforts to make my on-line business successful, plus I had to put time aside to do the off-line stuff so that my finances/expenses is well covered.

Folks, I am not typing this blog to condemn anyone nor any company as what I've written is very general. I did not mention at all what my last company's name was!

Most people that I know of who wants to succeed in their life is because of the frustrations that they went through and one of them is sometimes because of their not so good working experience.

They decide to work in a new environment that is better than the last. Or at least work in a situation that gives them the comfort that they seek.

Folks, aren't I right to say that we only keep doing what we do because it is providing us the comfort that we seek? Whether it is sooner or later, isn't it?

If a farmer decides to plant a crop that yields only after a year, should he be criticized?

I have said that I am going to be thankful for the state that I am in and that I am going to have this Attitude of Gratitude.

I am thankful that there exist a company that I have left that is providing a means of income for a handful of people.

I am thankful that there are people who takes the right way of earning their income.

I am thankful that I received training in selling a product that I feel is hard to sell but I see other people who are really excellent in it do it so simply and excel in it. And that I learn from them how they did it.

I am thankful for the comments that people have given me where I have vetted and decided to publish even though it may sound negative.

But I don't see it as a negative comment but a constructive one.

I am thankful for the anonymous comments that has been sent to me. I wonder why it is sent anonymously rather than with a name and contact info so that I can keep in touch with that person.

I believe that there are many people who don't believe in dreams and that dreamers are people who sit around doing nothing and hope that their dreams come true.

That is partly true.

One should not only dream or visualize the goal that they want to attain but also to take MASSIVE actions to make that dream a reality.

If someone thinks that I am just sitting around and doing nothing but just dreaming, that person should be the one to "Wake up!".

How people goes about their business is their their business and that is why there are people who grows things and that there are people who takes that which is grown, and make it better.

Should not that person who makes it better be rewarded justly?

Yes, rezki is in the "hands" of Allah and that we don't just sit around and pray and dhikr / say mantras and hope that big money comes to me without carrying out any active actions that can enable us to receive that rezki.

What have you done today to receive that is rightfully yours?


I apologize for blurting all of these that may seem has nothing to do with my on-line business. I wish for you who is reading this that running an online business is not very different from running an offline one.

What you see out there still applied here, buddy!

So, today, which is supposed to be Day 3 entry is Day 2.

So let this Day 2 be that: Day 2.

Take a look at Day 3 folks!
