Choosing the people to talk to

Based on Jomar’s VA 202 seminar, at least four hours can be dedicated to creating Facebook ads, creating a landing page, a thank you page, and preparing the ads in the Power Editor. Those who attended the seminar will be promoting his “How to Become a Virtual Assistant Seminar” through the Facebook ads.

So before setting those mentioned, I decided to think about the persona for the ad. Who will I talk to? Continue reading

My Facebook Ads Learning Adventure Begins!

My Facebook Ads learning adventure begins!

My Facebook Ads learning adventure begins!

Last November, I took a two-day seminar on VA202 Wealth Creation Strategies Seminar with Jomar Hilario and Jay McLean. It was so much fun to learn about the gold rush (Facebook Ads) and network expansion (LinkedIn) from these two guys. What’s more, it was awesome to learn with exceptional people who attended the seminar (a lot also took the downloadable seminar. I think they are on their seminar-mode these Christmas holidays.)

How manning a booth made me learn 5 marketing lessons

Work from home? Ask me!

Work from home? Ask me!

As far as I can remember, I only had one experience of manning a booth. It was during high school, when I signed up for the Radio Booth of my high school Media Club during our foundation day. Students and teachers may go to the Radio Booth to request for songs, greet friends, or both.

It was fun, of course. During that day, I saw myself progressed from being a researcher (looking for the requested songs in a sea of, take this, cassette tapes), content curator (taking greetings and messages from students and teachers), to a marketer (coordinating with the staff who cues the music and reading the greetings with a microphone, my voice heard all over the campus).

But that did not prepare me when I took the challenge of manning the Work From Home Booth of my mentor, Jomar Hilario, during the Kerygma Conference 2014. I was with one of the exceptional work-at-home moms that I know, Noemi Cariaso-Mora. Continue reading

Video blog: Opening one’s self to change and embracing opportunities

“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can, there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.”

Sarah Caldwell

In this video blog, I shared my story on how I thrived in companies that have Quality Management System (QMS). I think being in companies with QMS helped me become organized and seek out ways to make a work process fast without compromising efficiency and quality of work. It also paved the way for me to take higher responsibilities.
When you are given a new responsibility, think again. It may lead you to many doors of success.


Video blog: Delivering the best results

“You can have results or excuses. Not both”

I admit – when I said “yes, I’ll do it” to the project that I mentioned in the video blog, I heard myself saying, “Ann, think about what you just said: you only have three days before the presentation, your director said she’ll come back in the afternoon to see your work, you are not sure if the voice over recording that you did will be converted smoothly, and this will be the first time you will be doing an editing project that has voice over and sound!”

What a bad case of promising something that I have never done before (kids, don’t try this at home and anywhere).

But I was determined to deliver the best result. I somehow knew that I could do it. Well, even if not, I believe I will remember the lessons from the experience.

What happened next also surprised me: my colleague showed me an online audio converter. My files were converted smoothly. I was able to put together the voice over file, images, and text to the editing project without a glitch. I finished the project in a day, just in time when our director arrived to see it.

I use ProShow Producer 4.5 for my editing projects. I also used for audio conversion.

Pardon the dog barking on the background. I was busy talking about what happened. 🙂

Video blog: Dedication to work

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”

Vince Lombardi

In this video blog, I shared my experience on dedication to work.

I am so blessed to have worked with people with great work ethics. They were like virus (a good one) that infected me. I was inspired to go to work because I learned something new each day. I was also glad that my work paid off – I got the trust of the management, awards and incentives, and most of all, I saw that the people I guided during their training also made a mark in the organization.
