Q: Fione, it¡¯s a pleasure to meet you, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into your successful venture?
A: I studied in US for double majors in Marketing and
Management. After working in the Insurance industry for over two and a half years, I realised that I was not satisfied with my life at that point. I took a great leap, quit my job at the end of 1999, and starting planning for my dream of starting as an Internet Business entrepreneur.
Together with some other partners, we created a business plan, and managed to raise US$26,000 from angel investors to start this company, eOneNet.com. Now, we have offices in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Q: People love making money, but many end up with failures and regrets. From your experience, where do you think the common mistake lie?
A: Starting an Internet Business is rather similar to an offline business. First, you need to study the market, and then provide a hot product / service that the market is hungry for. However, in many instances, people tended to work
backwards by promoting products that have low demands, therefore fail to reach their desired Internet sales. On the other hand, some people attempted to sell ¡°me-too¡± products with high demand, but they failed to create a compelling an unique selling point (USP) to differentiate from their
Another common mistake is most people invested only on their websites, but allocated no or very low budget for internet marketing. Building a good website is just the first mile of a thousand mile journey. It won¡¯t bring you visitors on its own, no matter how great your website or products are. What brings visitors to your site is consistent effort of internet marketing.
Q: What¡¯s the misperception about Internet marketing?
A: One of the common misperception about Internet
Marketing is thinking that it is website design. Just like if you started a shop, you need to do marketing and promotions to attract customers to visit your shop. When you renovate your shop, then you rely on the contractor, which in this case, it¡¯s the web design team. However, after your shop is ready for launch, you would need advertising companies or pr team to help you promote your shop. In this case, it¡¯s the Internet marketing company that you should hire for promoting your website.
Therefore, having a website is just the beginning, and then, you need to focus on getting website traffic / visitors through effective online marketing campaigns.
