Interview With Louie Sison

I have always been an open book when it comes to my experiences and journey in building an internet marketing business. Recently, I had an interview with Louie Sison, a blogger based in Pampanga, about how I started from being a web developer, spearheading my own consultancy company, and being a life coach.

Pursuing an online career can take a lot of work but the results are also fruitful. I am able to enjoy a flexible time that I dedicate to my family. At the same time, I work on what I am passionate about, which is Internet marketing and share my knowledge on how to be successful online.

How Should Business Engage with their Followers in Social Media

When it comes to businesses engaging with their followers in social media, it’s all about being human and personal.

The best way to communicate with your followers is by being more personal with your messages and choice of words. Social media is a channel where we can engage with our target customers. At the same time, our followers are in social media not to hear about your new marketing offer, but to connect with people and friends.

The reason that you have Facebook friends is because it is intended to connect with your friends. So it is best to be their friend when engaging through social media. Leave the offers and the brand talk to your website. Show your human side in social media and be relatable to your audience.

Check out the video to know more ways how you can engage with your followers in your social media sites.

How can I make my brand/product more searchable on Facebook?

From Karlo Victor Abapo 

My Answer:

Perform a process called Facebook Graph Search Optimization, which essentially makes your Facebook Business page rank higher in the Facebook Graph Search according to your target keywords.

How does it exactly work? The same with search engines; Facebook now has a formula to determine the relevance of a Facebook page to a particular user. This simply means you can easily search for establishments and businesses in a specific category through certain keywords.

ask ben # 1


What are the principles behind a successful start-up Internet Entrepreneur?

From Kenn Costales 

My Answer:

Start a business that you are PASSIONATE about.

This has always been my first advice to every aspiring Internet Entrepreneur who wants to create business success online. This principle should be taken seriously. I’m not saying that you won’t earn money on niches that are way outside of your circle of interest. You actually still can, given the right conditions, effort and resources. But what I can guarantee you is that a business that is not based on your PASSION will never be a source of personal fulfillment and satisfaction in spite of the potential financial gains.
