* Start of Interview *

1. Please introduce your name, who you are, which country are you staying in and your area of IM expertise

Hey everyone there! My name is Dennis Sim, and I’m proud to be from the sunny side of the world in Penang, Malaysia. I’m a college student cum Internet marketer.

Well, my area of IM expertise would be affiliate marketing. I find affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money online and require the least capital ($$) to kick-start my online business. I’ve also created a system for myself to capture targeted list and of course, to make unstoppable affiliate income as well. (I hate the PPC way :p)

2. Share with us your first success in Internet Marketing and how did you do that

I ventured into online marketing since Nov 2006. That was after I attended World Internet Summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. To be frank, I didn’t make a single cent in the first few months. But until April 2007, my ClickBank account notified me that I made my first affiliate sale and I earned $4.96 in commission! Haha!

I know $4.96 is nothing to anyone out there, but it’s something to me! This $4.96 shows me that making money online is possible! From there on, I concentrate in affiliate marketing and keep on learning from other top marketers.

How I did it? Pretty easy… I got myself some PLR articles and compiled into a report. I create my own squeeze page and give away the report for free. And you’re right, my backend was promoting that affiliate program. Just drive traffic to my squeeze page and I got the money!

3. Share with us one obstacle which you have overcome and you have learnt a lot from it

Being a perfectionist! I’m a perfectionist (till today) but I try NOT to when comes to business. Being a perfectionist is good because you want to make sure everything is good perfect to go. However, that will seriously harm your business.

Remember this, “Nothing Is Perfect”. If you always want to make your product perfect, it will take you forever! Because as I said, nothing is perfect, so how could you make it perfect? So, my advice is, when you think you product is GOOD to go, just go ahead! Then, you can keep on improving your product from time to time. Make sense?

4. Share with us one mindset tip you would like to share with others, especially those who find IM hard

FOCUS. Internet marketing is hard for ANYONE who keeps on looking for the next “opportunity”. This is the biggest mistake that most newbies make (including me when I started). Those who want to make money online, stay focused on one thing at a time.

Here I got a tip for you. Whenever you try something new, apply this principle. “Try Each Method For At Least 3 Times”. Let’s say you want to try affiliate marketing with PPC. Try one time, if failed, try again, and failed, try again! If really can’t make it, then only move on to the next one. If you make it, congrats! You’ve found your way to success!

5. Share with us one product/ service of yours which you feel is very unique

All my products are unique (HAHA!). To be frank, I rarely launch new product to the market and I will do it if I think it’s good to share with others.

Recently, I launched a new program calls “List Nitro: Turbo-Charged List Building”. In this no-fluff report, you’ll discover how you can generate a responsive list of 5,000+ in just under 3 months (or 90 days)!

This foolproof system is simple, proven and fast. It works for ANYONE who uses it – even if you’re a complete beginner!

Currently the registration is CLOSED. But I’d like to give you the “Back-Door” access to all John’s readers here. Here’s the link: This is my way of saying thank you for reading my interview J

6. One project you are working on right now and you would like my readers to know

I’m not working at any project right. I’ve just released my List Nitro and I want to fine tune the product. As I said, focus on ONE thing at a time.

7. One last tip you want to share with my readers

If you want to make real money online, you must treat Internet marketing as ‘real’ business too. You must always remember that online business is still a business. You must put as much effort as you can in order to see the results quickly.

Let’s put it this way, if you take your online business as another “part-time job”, then you’ll make a “part-time income”. If you take your online business seriously, then you’ll make a “serious income”. As simple as that J

So ask yourself a question, “You want to make a part-time income or serious income?” You make the decision.

Thanks, everyone!

    Affiliate Market! I love the way he says he mostly does affiliate marketing as he finds clickbank etc easiest to make money especially for those of us like me! Who are “intermediate” beginners… Meaning read tons of IM books, newsletters, blogs, all contradicting info re many systems of IM biz.

    Now after 18 months its all coming together in my mind as to what “systems” of IM suit my persona.

    For some subconscious reason, Since I have a self defence krav maga opt in list & growng & over 15,000 job seekers in europe list. i had this weird belif if I started marketing affiliate ebook etc other people created to my list… Then I would “undermine” the chances of my list buying MY ebook ,DVD or audio which aside from public domain works i got on a sales page, but i aint got my own stuff created yet. Krav maga dvd be filmed v soon. I am taking the wrong view thinking this way.

    In a passionate hobby market esp if you provide good free content e-reports free etc…. I think my list has long term customer life cycle. i.e. I am passionate on self defense krav maga & i buy lots of ebooks dvds etc on martial arts. So I think i better find some good self defense e-books on clickbank that good quality & good commission & do product reviews & mention krav maga self defense free ebook i send out monthly to my list every month or so!

    That should make a few bucks come it. And Job hunter list.. Well thats a hungry market for how to find job advice re-recession unemployment & as 12 year recruiter I got lots of tips to share & affiliate job hunting products to review.
    I had a SCARCITY mentality re my list & promoting affiliate products!
