Lessons from my failed online business

LeadsLeap Success Lesson #11
written by Kenneth
Hi partner,

I have been sharing with you about my success stories to inspire you. But I'm not invincible.

Success comes with a fair share of failure.

Today I'll share with you an online business that I've created but failed.

I hope that you will not make the same mistake that I make.

In 2012, I became very interested in stock trading and technical analysis.

Since I was savvy in programming, I wrote algorithms to do backtesting.

I wrote a program to simulate trades based on different buy/sell signals. I wanted to find out if there was a sure win formula.

And I found it (well, I thought I'd found it).

Excited, I reckoned I had found another gold mine – a big one, because stock investment was a huge market.

I started to develop a stock trading membership site based on my sure-win formula.

It was a free membership site with an upgrade option. Free members can use different tools to analyze stocks, manage their portfolio and do backtesting on their own. Upgraded members can use my proprietary indicator that will show them when to buy and when to sell.

I advertised in Google Adwords to get traffic.

I also made a list of stock trading forums that accepted direct advertising. Advertising in stock trading forums wasn't cheap. They ranged from $500 to $20000 a month.

In the first week of launch, after spending about $6000, I only enrolled about 200 members.

I thought that was okay. We had an affiliate program. Members would refer more members and the snowball effect would take place.

2 months passed. The member size hardly increased. There were a few upgrades, but they were not enough to cover the costly data and license fee.

I started writing blog posts, hoping to get some traffic from the search engines. But the traffic wasn't enough to make a drastic difference to the business.

After 1 year, I closed the website.

Here are the lessons I have learnt from this failure:

1) Pick on someone your own size.

The stock trading industry was full of big boys with huge budget.

On one hand, everything was expensive in this industry. Advertising was expensive, stock data was expensive. Many things required licenses from the various stock exchanges.

On the other hand, many things were available free. For example, technical analysis was available free in Yahoo finance, Google finance etc.

No matter how much value I created, it was hard for me to stand out among the big boys.

2) Build a business around your true interest

I thought I was interested in the stock market niche, but I wasn't.

What I was interested was programming and system creation.

Once the system was created, I realized that I lost interest in stock trading and technical analysis.

To your success,
Kenneth

Life as an online business owner Here’s the truth

LeadsLeap Success Lesson #12
written by Kenneth
Hi partner,

Life as an online business owner was not really about staying by the beach and enjoying sunshine.

I might wake up one day with tons of emails alerting me of server irregularities. That would be considered a bad day for me because I would have to put down all my work or even holiday plans to fix the issue.

Some days, I might have to fix bugs.

I have also had bad times fighting with hackers and spammers, thinking of ways to outsmart them.

Basically I work everyday.

I think I haven't had a work-free day since my first online business.

If I was on a vacation or it was a festive day, I would wake up an hour earlier to do minimal work and finish up all outstanding work before I slept.

Sounds bad?

But here are the good things for me.

To work, all I need is my laptop and an internet connection.

I travel around the world with my wife. We visit at least 2 countries every year.

I have even stayed in Shanghai, China, for 3 years. That shows how mobile I can be.

Most important of all, I got to watch my 3 kids grow and be part of their memories.

I have never missed any important moment, such as their first day of school, performances or ceremonies.

During my free time, I can experiment with new ideas and create new tools. That's why LeadsLeap is full of innovative tools.

Last but not least, I have time to learn and explore other investment opportunities.

If I have a second career choice, I will still choose to be an online business owner.

I guess that is what people mean by living with no regrets.

To your success,
Kenneth

My first self-help book

LeadsLeap Success Lesson #13
Hi partner,

A bit about myself in the early days, the days when I was searching for success.

I was an achiever in school. I graduated with a First Class Honours and Accelerated Masters Degree.

I was invited to join a startup by a Professor. I agreed immediately because I wanted to learn how to start a business.

The company was mostly made up of fresh graduates, aka nerds. I was probably the only fresh graduate who was good in selling, hence I was always the one giving presentations.

One day, I was on a business trip to Melbourne to present the company's new technology.

It was my first business trip.

At the airport, feeling proud and successful, I walked into a book store. That's what you would imagine successful people do, right?

To be honest, I had never read a self-help book before that.

The only type of book I read was textbook.

At the book store in the airport, I picked up a book called 'The Cashflow Quadrant' by Robert Kiyosaki.

I read the first few pages and was immediately glued to the book.

I bought it eventually so that I could continue reading in the plane.

That was the start of my journey to financial freedom!

For those who haven't read the book, the book says that the ways people makes money can be divided into 4 quadrants:

Cashflow Quadrant Img

To have time and financial freedom, one has to get into the 'B' and 'I' quadrants.

This concept was an eye-opener for me.

I told myself that one day, I want to be in the 'B' and 'I' quadrants.

It also introduced me to the idea of time and financial freedom, which later became my life goal.

The book was written when the idea of online business was still in its infancy, so most of the references to the 'B' quadrant were traditional businesses.

In the brick and mortar world, it can take you a long time and a lot of effort to build a business up to a point when it can be run by professional management, so that you can free yourself from the operation.

Sad to say, many medium-sized business owners have never achieved time freedom.

But times have changed.

You can now run an online business and achieve time freedom in a matter of months.

Having time freedom doesn't mean you don't have to work.

It just means you can work anytime and anywhere you like, if you choose to.

I think I've achieved time freedom.

It took me about 10 years.

It won't happen overnight, but if you keep this idea in mind and keep on working towards it, it will be achieved.

To your success,
Kenneth

Leadsleap – A complete marketing system

Did You Know That…

More And More People Than Ever Before Are Searching For Methods To Make Extra Cash From The Comfort Of Their Homes Using Their PC's And Other Mobile Devices

Understand LeadsLeap In 1 Minute

119K Members  28M Real Visitors Sent 56K App Use

We've created the first and only tracking system that can track visitor surfing duration for affiliate or third-party links.

You can use our innovative tools and services FREE and build your own business like a guru.

With our webtools and ad widgets, we've amassed an advertising network covering 6,000+ websites, with daily ad impression of 400,000+. You can advertise FREE and get Real Visitors who are interested in your offers.

We design our program in such a way that you can automatically make some money while using our services and getting traffic.

Traffic And Leads

Let me be honest with you…

Our main income source comes from TRAFFIC GENERATION.

That's how we earn enough money to maintain multiple servers to power the free tools that we offer.

Since TRAFFIC GENERATION is our bread and butter, you bet we are doing everything possible to make it work better and better!

No snake oil here.

I'll explain the 4 ways we use to bring you traffic and leads.

You decide if they make sense to you.

1. Advertise to LeadsLeap Members

First, you can post an ad like those below:

Your ad will be shown to our members.

Our members are incentivized to view your ads.

I know what you're thinking…

"So, this is just another traffic exchange or PTC program, where members click an ad, wait for a 10-20 second countdown to lapse, then move on to another ad to earn more credits."

No. Such a `countdown´ system is flawed.

Let me ask you, if there is a countdown, what will you do when the time is up?

Yes, you will leave!

This kind of countdown system pushes visitors away from your ad after 10-20 seconds, instead of encouraging them to stay and learn more about your offer.

We do it differently.

We have created a proprietary system to measure visitor surfing duration for 3rd-party links.

With this system, we know who are really surfing and how long they've surfed.

We reward members based on their surfing duration.

The longer they surf your ad, the more credits they earn.

If your offer is interesting, they are 'incentivized' to stay and find out more.

Read our blog and see what others say about our unique ad viewing system > READ HERE.

Our members include affiliate marketers, website owners, bloggers and individuals looking for ways to make more money and get more traffic.

If they are your target audience, you wouldn't want to miss this chance to reach out to them FREE!

 
"Wow! I'm blown away at how Kenneth Koh, LeadsLeap founder, has constantly taken this program to new levels. Honestly, I have only been using this system for a few months, but the utility of the Leadsleap program never ceases to amaze me. When I check my advertizing to see which ads are performing the best, Leadsleap is always at the top of the list in sending me lots of traffic."

Keith Dyer

2. Advertise to The World

Ok, I am exaggerating when I say advertise to the world.

What happen is we run a PPC program.

We reward publishers and marketers to show your ads on their websites and in their tracking links.

Let's look at the stats…

Our ad impressions are more than 400k per day. Our ad widgets are shown in over 4,000 websites and blogs PLUS over 30,000 trackers that are shown in the most popular traffic exchanges, Paid To Click(PTC) programs, safelists, and forums.

Is this the industry you want to target?

If your answer is YES, then we offer you a shortcut to reach out across the entire industry.

 
"LeadsLeap is light years ahead of every other lead generation tool I have used. The tools are easy to use, and they are absolutely unique :-). LeadsLeap has produced quality traffic for my other half's blog, which is in a very small and specialized niche. It also produces quality signups for every program I have advertised to date. I look forward to using LeadsLeap for a long long time!"

3. Get Search Engine Traffic

One of the proven ways to get quality leads is by writing product reviews and getting traffic from the Search Engines.

LeadsLeap operates a search engine optimized Social Review Directory – Take a look at it HERE.

Not any kind of content will rank well in the Search Engines.

First, LeadsLeap.com is an aged authority site.

Second, the Social Review is a consolidated review directory, with unique and fresh reviews being added from time to time.

It is a great resource for people looking for different reviews from real users.

Search Engines love our Social Review because it provides true values to their users.

 
"Social Review is incredible! I've already received a lot of clicks for the programs I'm promoting. The review for one of my programs is on the #1 page in Google’s search results. It's a very good way for generating an endless stream of traffic for our sites!"

David Martinet

4. Multiply A Few Leads Into Thousands

LeadsLeap system comes with a 10-level network builder.

Imagine if you refer 10 people to LeadsLeap and they do the same, you will have 100 extra followers at Level 2, 1000 followers at Level 3, 10000 followers at Level 4…… and 10 billion followers at level 10!

Well, that's in theory.

Realistically, it's much lower. But still pretty explosive!

A Complete List Management System For You

Leadsleap announces:

*******A Complete List Management System For You*********

April 1, 2020 Kenneth (Admin) LeadsLeap News, List Building

Before today, we had a basic List Manager.

But I always felt sheepish about it because there were many things it couldn’t do.

Today, we replace it with a new system.

Introducing…. http://SendSteed.com.

Yes, it’s not LeadsLeap.com.

We have to host it under a new domain name because of the complexity of the system.

But it is dedicated to LeadsLeap members only.

With this new system, you can

Build a list
Set up Autoresponder
Send email broadcast to multiple lists
Track email open rate
Automatically track all URL click-through rate
Set up email series such as eCourse or automated follow-up emails (This is a Pro Member feature)

Basically, you can do almost everything a standard list management system can do.

Join leadsleap here:  https://www.leadsleap.com/1signupaday/?r=hypatia

Some Interesting Features

The new list management system has some intuitive features that I like very much.

1) Smart Filtering

If you mass mail to multiple lists, the system will automatically consolidate repeated subscribers.

This means if someone is in your multiple lists and you send a broadcast to all your lists, that person will only receive the broadcast once.

Remember how annoying it was to receive the same email multiple times, because you were on a person’s different lists?

This will not happen with our system.

Join leadsleap here:  https://www.leadsleap.com/1signupaday/?r=hypatia

2) Smart Greeting

When you enable ‘Smart Greeting’, subscribers who have entered their name will be greeted in the email automatically. Those without a name will see your default email message.

This will make your email more personal, whenever possible.

What Happen To My Old List?

Your old list has already been imported into the new list system.

This means you can now send email broadcast to your lists. (Previously you need to set up your own SMTP server to do that.)

But you need to activate the lists again!

It is necessary because there is a change in the settings and you have to submit additional information.

If you do not activate the list, your list will STILL capture leads, meaning you will not lose any leads, but other functions will not work.

 

I don’t want to bore you with the details. The arrows below depict the settings you want to pay attention to. Change and update them if necessary.

How To Start Using The New List Management System

 

If you are new to our list manager and want to start building a list, login to your LeadsLeap account, then go to:

List Manager > My Lists

Follow the Step By Step Guide on that page.

Is This List Management System Really Free?

Yes.

Join leadsleap here:  https://www.leadsleap.com/1signupaday/?r=hypatia

Why Free?

Many members want to start list building, but they lack the resources.

We tried to provide different solutions (solutions that were cheaper and easier for us to implement), but none could meet my expectations.

If we really want to help our members to build a list, offering a free full-fledged list management system is the only way.

We couldn’t do that previously because it’s an expensive solution.

But now, I think we are capable of supporting it.

So, if you haven’t started building a list, no more excuses!

Let’s get busy with list building…
