Instagram Influencer Engagement Calculator

I just learnt from Gerald Soh about Instagram Influencer Engagement Calculator where you can view the number of followers, engagement rate, likes and comments from a sample here >> https://phlanx.com/engagement-calculator?insta=sebastiangomez. Just Google for Instagram Influencer Engagement Calculator and you will find a list. This is a very useful feature especially for Shopify owners who want to scale their business to the next level by getting these influencers to post and get some sales for them. I am also taking my time to learn bit by bit an not rush into it. There are many free videos out there that you can learn for almost next to nothing. Almost 99% of these videos are created by men.

Konversion and Turbo Theme on Shopify

I am considering of paying RM 500 to scale up my Shopify shop using paid theme like Konversion or Turbo which is double the price at $350. ZelloShop.com is very well developed, has a hundred products and makes USD 100,000 per month revenue with USD 50,000 profit. I might just follow the excellent business model shared by 2 male business partners with 2 Virtual Assistants helping them for RM 4,000 in total. My Shopify shop is already 4 months in operation but still hardly any sales. Hence, I need a mentor to guide me to scale up my business to even greater heights. As you know, most of the succcessful Shopify owners are men, very few ladies are in this business, unless they sell maternity stuffs.

Digital Marketing

I just came back from Kuala Lumpur with a stopover in Ipoh last night. It was a bit tiring and I slept early to work today, a weekend. This morning, I was browsing the internet, when I came across king kong digital marketing, where you can click on the link to find out more information.

As we all know, digital marketing is the lifeblood of your online business or website to grow and prosper. As a rule of thumb, we should allocate 1/3 for building a website, 1/3 of our money for marketing or advertisements and final 1/3 for maintenance.

I am blessed to be able to work from a home office with the benefits of an SME company with EPF and SOCSO, medical benefits, etc. But lots of traveling is required and it can get lethargic at times. In the meantime, you can check out the link above and read more information on digital marketing.

10 Powerful Habits of the Ultra Successful

Above is an infographic that is self explanatory. One of the habits is networking with people smarter than you or successful ones. Birds of a feather flock together. Another is to diet and exercise like playing futsal, soccer, sports, tennis, swimming, golfing or cycling. I should also add, that one needs to have a hobby too like playing the guitar, organ, piano, flute, etc. Others include blogging, writing articles, or even moonlighting part-time by being a freelancer and bid for jobs. Craigslist.org is a good place to look for free jobs online and you don’t have to pay anything, unlike Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, even though these sites will always have constant jobs offers.

Tomorrow, on a short notice, I shall be going down to Kuala Lumpur with my married business partner due to issues in a condominium, visit other places and then head to Ipoh on Friday. We just put our pet Pomeranian puppy in a pet hotel for 3 days or so. The 2 white Holland Lop rabbits will be taken care of by the workers in another place. Such is my life of travelling and working. Sometimes, I wish to have a family of my own and not travel so much with someone special.

The Last Jedi – 2017 Star Wars Movie

Resistance fighters led by General Leia Organa evacuate their base when a First Order fleet arrives. In an effective but costly counterattack led by Poe Dameron, Resistance fighters manage to destroy a First Order dreadnought. The Resistance vessels jump into hyperspace but the First Order pursue them using a tracking device. Kylo Ren, Leia’s son, destroys the Resistance support fighters, but hesitates to fire at the lead Resistance ship, after sensing his mother’s presence. However, TIE fighters destroy the bridge of the ship, killing several Resistance leaders and incapacitating Leia, who only survives by using the Force. Command falls to Vice Admiral Holdo. Disapproving of Holdo’s passive strategy, with the support of Poe, Finn, BB-8, and mechanic Rose Tico embark on a secret mission to disable the tracking device.

Meanwhile, Rey has arrived on remote Ahch-To, with Chewbacca and R2-D2 aboard the Millennium Falcon, to recruit Luke Skywalker to the Resistance. Disillusioned by the failures of the Jedi and under self-imposed exile from the Force, Luke refuses, even after he learns from Rey of Han Solo’s death. Unknown to Luke, Rey and Kylo begin communicating through telepathic visions. Prompted by R2-D2, Luke agrees to teach Rey the ways of the Force. Luke and Kylo give Rey differing accounts of the incident that turned Kylo to the dark side; Luke confesses that he momentarily contemplated killing Kylo upon sensing that Supreme Leader Snoke had corrupted him, causing Kylo to destroy Luke’s emergent Jedi Order in retaliation. Convinced that Kylo can be redeemed, Rey leaves Ahch-To to confront Kylo without Luke. Luke prepares to burn down the Ahch-To Jedi temple and library, but hesitates. Yoda’s ghost appears and destroys the temple, claiming Rey has all she needs to learn, and encourages Luke to learn from his failure.

Holdo reveals her plan to discreetly evacuate the remaining Resistance members using small transports. Believing her actions cowardly and risky, Poe instigates a mutiny. Finn, Rose and BB-8 travel to the Canto Bight casino and acquire the help of the hacker DJ, who says he can help them disable the tracking device. They infiltrate Snoke’s ship but are captured by Captain Phasma, though BB-8 escapes. Meanwhile, Rey lands on the ship, and Kylo brings her to Snoke, who reveals that he facilitated the mental connection between her and Kylo as part of a plan to destroy Luke. Ordered to kill Rey, Kylo instead kills Snoke and works together with Rey to defeat Snoke’s elite guards. Kylo invites Rey to rule the galaxy with him, but Rey refuses. Using the Force, they struggle for possession of Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber, which splits in two.

Leia recovers and stuns Poe, allowing the evacuation to begin. Holdo remains on the ship to mislead Snoke’s fleet as the others flee to a nearby abandoned Rebel Alliance base on Crait. DJ reveals the Resistance’s plan to the First Order, and the evacuation transports are targeted and sustain heavy losses; Holdo sacrifices herself by ramming Snoke’s fleet at lightspeed to stop the barrage, bisecting all of the First Order ships and inflicting massive casualties on the First Order troops. Rey escapes in the chaos, while Kylo declares himself Supreme Leader. BB-8 frees Finn and Rose, who escape after defeating Captain Phasma, and join the survivors of the evacuation on Crait. When the First Order arrives, Poe, Finn, and Rose lead a charge with old speeders. Rey draws the TIE fighters away with the Falcon, while Rose prevents Finn from completing a suicide run against the enemy siege cannon, which blasts a hole in the Resistance fortress.

Luke appears and confronts the First Order so the surviving Resistance fighters can escape. Kylo orders the First Order forces to fire on Luke to no effect, then engages Luke in a lightsaber duel. Kylo strikes Luke but realizes he has been fighting Luke’s Force projection. Luke tells Kylo he will not be the last Jedi, while Rey uses the Force to help the Resistance fighters escape on the Falcon. On Ahch-To, an exhausted Luke vanishes into the Force. Leia reassures everyone that the rebellion has all it needs to rise again. In a short glimpse on the Falcon, it is revealed that Rey has taken the books from the Jedi temple with her. At Canto Bight, one of the children who helped Finn and Rose escape grabs a broom with the Force and gazes into space.

Ian Leaf United Kingdom

After dinner at Gurney Plaza, I came back home to surf the internet and came across this site >> Ian Leaf United Kingdom, where you can click on the link to find out more information. I was in United Kingdom twice before, once during my Euopean trip in 2013 and another during my sister’s wedding in 2015 in Southampton where she will be getting her PhD soon in English Literature.

This year, hopefully her hubby will pass and both of them will graduate during summer convocation where our family will fly down to attend the ceremony. United Kingdom is cold during winter and it is like walking in an air-con room outside.

If the strong wind blows, it will be even more chilly, but a different culture compared to Malaysia. A lot of Malaysians graduated from the UK where it is more prestigious than local universities, where you get to experiece a taste of foreign culture.
