The Next Internet Millionaire Episode 2 Now Showing...

I enjoyed watching Donald Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show. I enjoy even more watching Joel Comm's "The Next Internet Millionaire" online video reality show. The show is entertaining and educational.
I have been filming internet marketing seminars and workshops. Joel Comm has taken that to the next level... he combines the dry seminars and workshops with a story and an added element of tense competition. The video is filmed and edited with respectable creative quality. (Hmmm... I wonder which asia'a internet millionaire will engage me to do a similar project... hint hint...)Episode 2 features Internet marketing legend, Armand Morin, as he teaches the contestants the importance of branding. I love the teaching and the drama. Guess who will be sent home by Joel and who will be one step closer to winning $25,000 and becoming Joel's next joint venture partner? Find out now!

Singapore Videographer Discovers Massive Traffic Secrets

Being a videographer can be very rewarding. It is a win-win-win situation. It is first a hobby, second makes money and third an opportunity to meet famous people.

Over the weekend, Hong Kong's internet millionaire Kelvin Hui was in Singapore to teach his highly regarded internet traffic generation secrets.
I learnt a lot about increasing website traffic from search engine optimisation, blogging and community involvement.
In the last post I attempt to implement one of his tips.
It works! My post is now on the first page of google for the search keyword "Singapore DVD Duplication".
Get ready to see more of my web pages on google as I will be spending my time using the strategies.

VideoLane Site Update: Online Video Showcase and Social Bookmarks.

Moving from being a "self-employed videographer" to becoming a "video production business owner" is not an easy task. I am experiencing the vicious cycle. With more staff and outsourcing overheads, I am forced to look for more projects. The inflow of video projects cannot stop. Cashflow is so crucial now (In case this all sound familiar, yes, I am applying the teachings of Rich Dad Poor Dad's Robert Kiyosaki).

The obvious solution to the above situation is MARKETING. I am learning as much as I can about marketing a business, particularly in the field of internet marketing. In the beginning, most of my new clients came from my website, which had an Alexa ranking of 70,000. Today it is like miserably over a million.

So, my eyes are turning blurry from reading all the internet marketing tips at night. With all the knowledge I gather, I am putting them to practice immediately. Here are the first two changes...

5 Steps to Speed Up Your Video Editing Computer...

Here is the 2007 update of an earlier article I wrote about speeding up your video editing computer.

Today, we have 4 video editing computers in our new Technopreneur Centre studio. Two desktops and two laptops. They run on Windows XP. Forget about Windows Vista for the moment, because the application programs have not caught up with it yet.

Our video editing software is Sony Vegas. Our DVD burning software is UleadMovieFactory. Our DV to DVD direct capturing software is UleadVideoStudio.

These programs require lots of memory and processing power in order to run smoothly. Though our video editing computers come with maximum memory and the latest processors, we still adhere to our monthly computer performance optimizing routine. The whole process takes less than one hour.

Step 1 : Update ZoneAlarm firewall.

ZoneAlarm firewall has served us well for many years. Our computers are connected online all the time, so we are vulnerable to spywares and hackers that want to plant hidden programs in …

18 Essential Ingredients to a Successful Viral Video...

I just came across 2 articles which I think sum up what goes into making a successful viral video

Here are 8 tips to make your YouTube video go viral by David Meerman Scott...

Tip # 1 – Homemade is just fine. You don’t need to hire a professional.

Tip #2 –Your video should be no longer then 2 minutes (preferably less). Think very short.

Tip #3 -- Make your description clear and specific. Use descriptive keywords that people will search.

Tip # 4 -- Don't attempt "stealth" fake customer insertions to YouTube. The YouTube community is remarkably skilled at ratting out inauthentic video.

Tip #5 – Try a series of similar videos to build interest. Sometimes a series of videos works great.

Tip #6 – Tell everyone about your video! It takes time to build an audience.

Tip # 7 – Make sure bloggers know about the video. Sending a link to the video to bloggers or commenting on other people's blogs.

Tip #8 – Experiment a lot to find som…

Eight Days Video Shoot With Sony FX7 HD Camcorder...

Surfing here in the Cycle & Carriage customer lounge so cozy,
My car's getting serviced while I blog about my week so busy.
Woke at 2pm to catch up with 2 nights on stimulants.
2 sleepless nights editing a video of an 8-day conference.

The event again took place at sunny Sentosa.
Breath-taking scenery and buffet worth 5-star.
Companied the participants to every excursion.
Till the end of dinner and even every recreation.

Lugging my Sony FX7 HD Camcorder,
Every memorable moment I capture,
From lectures to sight-seeing and networking,
Make a souvenir for the foreigners to bring.

Tiring it may seem, nothing is more rewarding
Than the audience cheering and appreciating.
Shot in 8 days with two nights of intensive editing.
70 DVDs distributed to each person before leaving.
