Power Of Focus – How To Get It For Your Biz?
Oct 26th, 2015 by Azmir Ismail

A short post … but I want to stress the power of focus in doing business, online or offline. I have been guilty in the past of the ‘shiny object’ syndrome, where I kept buying/attending the next biggest online thing, only not getting any or little success with it. In the end, it was information overload and nothing was done.

How To Get Focus For Your Biz? Easy.

  1. Narrow your business scope
  2. Plan the actions under your business
  3. Execute
  4. Feedback —> Learn and Repeat Step 2

All yours. :)

Don’t Go Looking For Knowledge ….
May 14th, 2014 by Azmir Ismail

In then world of Internet Marketing, it is common to go looking for new knowledge or information. Lately, I was thinking why my internet business was going a bit stale. It is definitely not to the lack of knowledge. A look at my hard disk shown me tonnes of IM programs and tools that I have. So, for a few hours I sat in deep thought wondering what is wrong. Then I realized the answer… I was in this situation because of my hunger for knowledge. Yes, my hunger and thirst for knowledge has lead me to not doing well in my internet business.

info overload

Not me :) just a picture showing what I was in …









Yep, my thirst  for knowledge lead me to where I am. Allow me to explain. Simply, I was looking for knowledge and information of internet marketing without actually applying the knowledge/information learnt first. So, I kept jumping from knowledge A to ebook B to seminar C .. and the list goes on and on …. in the end, what do I have? yeah, you guessed it .. INFORMATION OVERLOAD!

So I did a bit of research especially from the IM ‘seniors’ to rectify and avoid this problem in the future. There were two major points outlined

1-Don’t Buy Any IM Related Stuff For The Next Few Months

Don’t buy anything else in the IM arena until you have finished reading AND applying what you have in your hard drive. Basically, begin with what you already have/bought. From what I see, a lot of IM stuff (especially WSOs) are recycled stuff that have been published. Go through what you have first, applied it and see the results. Need further info, uncle Google is around …. :)

2- Focus on ONE method/technique Until You Succeed

There are so many methods / technique of IM nowadays. From blogging to FB Ads, there are so many options. Do not follow the current. For example, right now FB Ads is the current ‘in’ thing. Do you need to go and buy the latest FB Ads course, while you have a Google Adwords course that you had purchased that you have not yet finished.

Well, I learnt my lesson and shall be applying these lessons to my online business. I would focus on what I have, apply it first, and then proceed. So far, it is working to a certain extent :) and hopefully for the rest of my IM business life.


Not me but a description of what I felt :)

SEO Tips From Matt Cutts (Google SEO dude)
May 2nd, 2014 by Azmir Ismail

Just read a post where Matt Cutts, a fellow at Google, does his best disprove rumors regarding how they SEO is done by Google.

The post can be accessed by clicking here.

Matt Cutts

Matt Cutts (cortesy of



His four main points, in the post are

1. Paying For Google AdWords = Higher Organic Rankings
2. Google Changes Its Algorithm to Force People to Buy Ads
3. Black Hat Tricks: The Best Way to Rank No. 1
4. SEO Tools Will Solve All Your Problems



For me, item no 4 is the most interesting. Admittedly, most IMers buy/use SEO tools and methods that purportedly enhance SEO. For me, SEO has always been a grey area. For me, your SEO and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) strategy must be smart and makes logical sense ( especially the backlinks). For example, if your site is about sports news, then your backlinks should not come from health related sites. All the google updates, in my opinion, are attempting to keep it logical.

He did not mention it in his post, but he has been a strong proponent that all website masters should use the Google Webmasters tool as part of website management, which I do agree.

Matt is definitely one of the public Google faces when talking about SEO and SEM so I guess his advice should be taken seriously.
