    The level the quality of this blog’s posts have dropped to is unbelievable.

    Faisal is a veteran player in the IT arena and this workshop, although common in the developed countries, is the first of its kind in our part of the world. Yes, there have been blogger meet-ups and internet marketing conferences in which the issue of earning money online has been touched upon but a complete event dedicated to this topic hasn’t been done before. Kudos to Faisal for initiating this.

    But it’s not going to be easy to make it a successful event. His biggest problem is going to be wooing the right crowd and in the right numbers. He is mostly relying on word-of-mouth online through blogs like these to promote this event. Unfortunately, the sort of people who frequent these blogs are themselves savvy enough to know the basics of making money online.

    Why would they dish out Rs.8,000 for an introductory course like this? Their biggest need is how to get their hands on the money they earn online, what is the quickest and hassle-free way of cashing their online earning in Pakistan. And this is something which even Faisal is having trouble dealing with, which is evident from the letter ( he has written to the CEO and President of Ebay John Donahoe requesting him to allow Paypal transactions in Pakistan because absence of Paypal is creating hurdles for Pakistanis earning online.

    He would have been better off had he advertised this intro course in traditional media like print. It would have cost money, of course, but at least the ad would reach the target market that would have been receptive to his offer.

    Also the is largely an unknown entity. He should have gone with which is far better organizer and promoter of branded events.

    Plus if he really wants the net savvy lot to take up on this offer, he would have to drastically cut the fees by more than 50%. Otherwise he faces a seemingly insurmountable hurdle in getting people to show up.

    I attended the Tipping Point social media conference and although their fees was lower than this and marketing more aggressive, the attendance wasn’t good. This just goes on to show that no matter how good you are at what you do, unless you can connect to the people who will respond to you, all will be in vain.

    Anyway, good luck to him.

    Recently, there has been a great deal of investigation by the
    American FTC against bloggers and website developers
    for not stating advertising profits, or potential
    relationships with advertising networks.

    What are your ideas about how this could potentially impact
    the blogging community?
