How to get ATTention in a Blogger’s Gathering

Hi guys,

During my first blogger gathering, I was a bit shy and prefer to speak only with my wife.Which is not the best thing to do. Since it was my first, so I did some observation and note down things that I should do next time to make more friends and increase traffic to my blog.

1. Take picture with famous blogger,say hi,exchange ideas

– Well you should know the most popular blogger, as for me I would love to take picture with Kak Red from RedMummy.com, Lilian from 5xmom.com or even VP from viruspaducom 🙂

– OK there must be popular male blogger like KennySia, LiewCF.com that you shouldn’t miss if they were there. Be polite and asked for picture won’t cost a thing rite. In fact this is the best way to get notice fast online.


2. Distribute your blogger card

– If you don’t have it , jut drop by to a printing shop and create one box of your official blogger card, it wil cost you less than RM 30.

– People will easily visit your blog with the correct url as stated in your card rite, so no more typo error in finding your blog url.

– Same like a business card, it will show how professional even you are just amatuer. Your new friend will sure be impressed.

3. Wear your special shirt that display your URL of your blog.

– Seriously, I found this tip is practical, since I noticed a few blogger wear black T-shirt  with their blog URL at the back.

– If you can out your logo than that would add more cream to the ice cream 🙂 . At least your regular visitor will notice you on the spot. As online picture with real one is not usually the same. As for me, I will look more “leng chai” if face to face than my online picture hehe

4. Be friendly with everybody shake hand and smile always

– This is a straight forward tip, since be nice to everybody will attract more blogger to get to know you.

– My first mistake was unable to start a conversation, that is my main weakness. I usually think 100 times about topics to talk about,untill  some people think that I’m an introvert. Well I can talk about a lot of things just don’t know where to start and can be funny sometime.

5. Participate in a talk,answer question fast and always raise up your hand.

Seiously, I did’nt know that you will get goodies/gadget when you answer simple question in a talk session. Well, I know that you do get goodies but not all questions, so I ‘m a bit shocked.

– Next time, I will prepare myself with some info and do some research about the event and the sponsor off course. I will always raise my hand and get the chances to introduce myslef to everybody and win some goodies.

Bonus

– Win a competition in that particular gathering, that would add a strawberry in your ice cream of exposure :). I did win a consolation prize in that gathering, and I bought a lot of books from MPH Alamanda Putrajaya.

– In short, just enjoy your gathering, chat with others and smile 🙂

CIMB Click Pishing and SMS Alert

A few months ago, Muridi Mohammad from Perlis was shocked when his money has been missing from his CIMB account.He received an SMS telling him he had won RM14,000 in an Akademi Fantasia 6 (AF6) competition. All he had to do to claim his winnings was to telephone the number given.

When he called, a man claiming to be from Astro asked for Muridi’s bank account number to deposit his winnings. Though he was hesitant, he did so. Fortunately he had enough sense to give an account with little money in it.

“I gave him the account my tenant uses to pay the rent.” The CIMB account had a balance of just over RM300.

Although this case is not new, but this poor Ustaz still want to try his luck. He just gave his account number just to see wether the scammer will deposit money or not. But it turns out, the scammer manage to withdraw money from his account two times. About an hour later he checked the account and found that two payments of RM120 had been made to “I-PYMT TO COLL”.

The BIG question here, how this criminal manage to withdraw money just using user account’s number. Really strange. I think this guys are really professional,even CIMB never release a statement about their system flaw.So just use thumb rule, if the offer is too good, then it is a scam. Don’t try to outsmart them. Maybe your are dealing with international criminal :). (more…)
