Maynas Eric Chua

* Start of Interview *

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

First of all, thank you John for this interview. :)*Smiles* It’s very much appreciated.

Hi there, I’m Maynas Eric Chua, an award winning engineering graduate and serial entrepreneur residing primarily in Singapore (Citizen) and secondary in Australia where I’m a Permanent Resident.

My area of expertise is in research, analyzation and implementation. I use this method in most of the things I do in life, including business.

I would like to associate myself more into the social media side rather than internet marketing itself because I believe that how we do business should be akin to how we live our lives, based on principles and values like integrity, the social aspect of life as it involves people.

Warren Buffett calls this, the inner scorecard, how each of us lives as a person, we know for ourselves whether we are good or bad regardless of how we appear in public. Who we are as a person are the things we do when we know that no one in the world will ever find out.

Why Social?

This is because of the selective basis I go by, I would prefer to mostly work with people whom I like to work with and respect as a person. It is likely that you would not have heard of my name in the past because of the nature of my research. Do look out for the halfway mark of 2009, that is when parts of the results from our research will surface in public under our names both as free papers and paid products.

The best way to keep yourself updated about the latest happenings is to sign up for the newsletters at https://maynaseric.com and https://the100monkeys.com as the freebies, prizes, chances to earn money and product releases will be announced there. Alternatively, you can find me at Twitter at https://twitter.maynaseric.com

I am back in Singapore and it’s time to rock the World, let’s do it together shall we? *Winks*

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

The first success was pretty short and sweet. I started a single page website, wrote numerous sales copy about a niche product and post it in areas I have researched to be the best places to advertise it. It made more than $1000 with just a few hours work.

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

Good question, I will identify one of the obstacles that is bound to stop you and me at some point of our life. That is procrastination. We can plan all we want and it may look perfect on paper, but when it comes to auctioning upon it, our doubts start to surface and we hesitate.

Many times, great ideas are lost just like that because when we hesitate to do something, it is likely that we might not do it in the end. Stop doubt before it settles in, most great ideas only sound great when we first thought of it, give it a few days and it may seem like it’s not that good an idea anyway.

My advice, just do it if it harms no one and there’s not much risk to it. We may fail, but so what? I expect to hit home only 2 out of 10 ideas and I think that’s pretty high ratio but here’s this, not all ideas that I expect to succeed did and not all ideas that I expect to fail did too.

Stop thinking it will fail, it might not! Keep thinking it will succeed unless you know it REALLY can’t, that’s the time to quit, quitting when you are about to succeed is not only a waste of your time invested in it, it’s silly.

Remember Nike, just do it.

Remember ME, Maynas Eric, just do it and do it FAST!

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

Mindset tip:

Be like Thomas Edison if you are not a genius. Prepare to fail and get used to failing until you succeed, and when you do succeed, make sure you don’t feel invincible because the cycle goes on, fail until you succeed in future endeavors.

But make sure that you learn something with every failure because it is better to find the fault before you succeed, rather than falling from grace BECAUSE of that failure you didn’t find out in the start.

Imagine Thomas Edison thinking he succeeded in inventing the light bulb but didn’t realized that it emits some poisonous gas if due to prolong exposure of the user ONLY after selling it to the public.

Internet marketing is just marketing on the Internet, it’s mainly just promoting a product, either yours or someone else’s. The main skill is knowing how to write in a way that people buy and designing in such a way that people find it’s worth buying.

What does that mean?

It means that if you keep keeping and improving, you will eventually know what are the magic words and graphics that work, and yes, that means failing many times before you become a magician who can sell almost anything. It is not rocket science, a 7 year old can do it as well as a 17, 27,47 or 70 year old person once you know what works.

I imagine that those are the products that you should buy (most of the stuff I create are in this category), those that really teach you something rather than some basic stuff that anyone can find just by using a Google search. You don’t want fluff, what you really want are tactics by someone you can trust.

5. Share with us about the uniqueness of one of your products.

Uniqueness: We grow together. We don’t like to leave people on their own after they bought something from us, I rather have people who become friends rather than people I can only call clients.

Stay with us and we will try our best within our slots to help you succeed both in life and in business, it is not a one-time “hi and bye” transaction.

When you are new, you will need help and we have contacts who we can recommend to help you so that you don’t take months and years to learn the skills, we will help you reduce the process to a manner of weeks or days.

If you are already experienced and just want to know what tactics we use, feel free to contact us and we can work on projects too. We grow together.

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

Come to our new startup now at https://the100monkeys.com where we are planning major things to happen there, you could get freebies worth thousands of dollars and chances to earn good money too. When I mention good, it means really good.

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

One tip, three parts:

Always be ethical, don’t sell something you yourself will not buy if you were in the shoes of others.

Secondly, don’t S.p.a.m.

Thirdly, sign up for our newsletter at https://the100monkeys.com , don’t miss what could be one of the greatest opportunity that takes only 5 seconds to do.

Thanks John for this interview, much appreciated. *Smiles*
