Presentation at Greenwich University - The Social Affair 2012


mohammad at greenwich universityWhenever I find an opportunity to convey the message to young talented students, I never miss jumping inside the public academic pool. On 6th October, 2012, the Media Marketing and Management Team at Greenwich University (located in defence Karachi) organized "The Social Affair 2012" event.  The event aimed at celebrating the viral spread of social media websites locally and how it has helped individuals in different ways.  Around six professionals from different IT fields were invited to share their precious experiences with the students. I was fortunately one of the invited Guest Speakers for the evening and the topic I chose was "Make Money Online From your Living Room". It turned out to be one of the most memorable events of my life with tons of warm feedback and appreciation from everywhere. The hospitality I received from the organizers, faculty members and enthusiastic young students can't simply be thanked enough.  I would like to give some highlights of the great experience I had that day.

Fellow Guest Speakers

Following is the complete list of invited guest speakers:

  • Imtiaz Mohammad - GBG manager, Google
  • Ejaz Asi - Digital Strategy & Development Head from Brands Crew
  • Shahryar Popalzai - Asst web editor, Tribune
  • Abid Beli - Guinness record holder for organizing largest National Anthem recital
  • Amin ur Rehman - PR, KESC
  • Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai - I guess that's me! ;)

What did we talk about?

I tried to utilize the time by sharing some practical & smart earning methods with the audience  in order to enable them to make a living online within SIX MONTHS by applying correct legitimate ways and strategies. This time I tried to offer a more realistic approach to the topic by sharing a little of my background history dating back to the time when I was no more than just a Plastic Bag seller. Blogging and Internet Marketing are still growing terminologies in Pakistan and India. Fortunately today when I ask a crowd "What a blog is?" I at least get some interesting answers unlike 2010 & 2010 when the crowd was often dumb found on this question. Teenagers today has good grasp of Freelancing communities for making money online but there's still a dire need to educate them with more effective online earning methods for a lucrative online business. Keeping this necessity in mind, I always try to guide them in developing the right skills to survive in online industry. Last year we proposed a business plan for School, College and university students and this year I focused on encouraging students to understand the value of developing skills, applying and implementing whatever they learn and moving ahead with a crystal clear strategy.

Blogging today is mostly misinterpreted and its earning is narrowed down to Advertisements alone like AdSense. This is a wrong approach of starting a website with a goal to make a living online. Advertisements should count only for 10% of your entire earning, the remaining should depend largely on Affiliate Marketing, consultancy and Services.

To give an example of online earning potential we shared our BUYSELLADS earning with the audience just to clarify the doubts that whatever was coming next in the presentation slides was not just a verbal speech but a practical online earning approach. 

Economic Recession is growing rapidly worldwide and so is unemployment. Unless young individuals are encouraged to develop skills during their academic lives and apply them online, the traditional Boss & Worker(slave) culture would never stop prevailing. I have always emphasized on learning less and applying more. Higher education is good only if applied else you are moving ahead with no clear goal in mind. The children deserve to explore their business skills and parents must encourage them with their small entrepreneurship ideas and provide them with all required resources in order to turn them into a Man rather a Milk Feeder. This one habit of applied education has turned several individuals into Millionaires and they are still not done counting the coins.

Not forgetting! This time I even distributed some gift hampers amongst the students for participating in Question and Answer session. ;p

See it live!

Following are the recordings of a healthy discussion that took place that day. We hope you will find them useful. I love talking in both Urdu and English , so apologies for my non-native readers living in US, Malaysia, Indonesia and Europe. I would love to translate any part of the talk where you feel like I talked too much of URDU ;)

Gifts from Greenwich

A beautiful flower bouquet , a bag full of chocolates and a shiny glass honor award are just few glimpses of the warm hospitality I received from Greenwich university. I simply can't thank them enough. This meant a lot!

People I wish to thank

First and foremost Mam Saima, the Media and Marketing teacher at Greenwich for honoring us with such an opportunity to express our views in front of students. Then my home buddy and childhood friend Paji (Mohsin Mirza) for companying me. I would like to thank all MBT readers who took out time out of their busy schedules and for attending the event. Readers who met me that day were Wali Khan form OnlineUstaad, Furqan from TheGadgetCode, Buddy Haris and Umair.

Finally a warm thanksgiving to the organizers and administration of Greenwich University. You guys made it worth a memory!

I would be sharing two big surprises in my coming posts with MBT readers. You guys are the reason for whatever honor I am given at home. I look forward to meeting each one of you in coming events very soon inshAllah. Thank you for everything and for being the consistent source of motivation.

Please share your views after watching the presentation and do post your valuable comments. How far do you think social media has reshaped our lives and what online earning secrets would you like to share with all of us. Peace and blessings be on you all buddies. =)

  1. Wonderful! wonderful!! wonderful!!! Mohammed you're great, well done bro,you give me more reasons why I need to do serious work in my online present, adsense advertisement to only take 10% and others for affiliate marketing are something that will make me want to focus on other ways of making money online other than adsense.
    Thanks Muhammad

  12. Hey, This Was Just Awesome. The Things were going pretty boring until The MR MOHAMMAD BRO Landed in the Seminar and Starting his a Bit Funny and Interesting Talk. I Can't Believe that How much Ups and Downs You have gone Through, Literally I Was Shocked when I heard your Child Hood Story.

    The Funny Thing when People were Stare'ing Each other Faces when you Said I Take 150 Dollar for 1 Hour Skype Lecture. (All the People were Stunned and I Was the One Who Laughed Like a Mad Man)

    I Think You forgot me to Include in the MBT Readers. I Was also their though you was too buy with the other People. That at the End of the Event I Just Shacked your Hand, and You were in Rush so i was unable to Introduce my Self. Any Ways Thanks for the invitation, it was just awesome.

    I Only liked your Presentation Other Speakers were to Boring and were telling the basic things which we already know. You Really Won my Heart That day.

    I Wish I could also Do a Presentation in a University Some Day or Near Future But for that I need lots of Hard-Work and you know that How Lazy I am. Thanks I would Love to Meet You again and This time would love to have a One-on-One Conversation. Peace and Blessings My Dear MENTOR :)

  21. You are not akhrot; from now you are a butcher. Yes you are such a cruel person who deprived many of us like me not prior informing about the event and made us miss that informative event. Don't worry we would not have bothered you to get the entry pass of the event because there are several ways to crash the gate.
    Your copy of presentation here is also quite helpful but live learning has its own taste. I hope next time you won't do this mistake

    @Anthony

    My pleasure Anthony. Advertisement are usually seasonal.
    Sometimes you get pretty hot flow of new adverts and
    sometimes vacant Ad spots and no reviews or contextual link ads.
    Therefore revenue through it is never consistent. This is one reason why
    I prefer affiliate sales and services over all other by-products of blogging ;)

    Thank you pal for the kind feedback!

    @Umair khan
    That was the purity of your inner self buddy. Thank you so much for coming
    and for making the day even more memorable. Your comments are what that recharge me. :p

    Your feedback means a lot. May you have the best of life too and succeed with your blog and online endeavors. Always a pleasure to have you here. :)


    @Bhavesh
    There comes bhavesh! Man I honestly missed blogging myself and you for sure!
    Its tough being too out of touch from a hobby you do on daily basis.
    Looks like you are renovating the office room (living room) too.
    Bigger business plans bhavesh? =p

    Thank you for taking out time and accompanying me that day. Thank you for that kind introductory post.
    I am overwhelmed. I have to read it thoroughly and leave you a comment for sure. I am honored. :)


    @Faizan

    Were you there buddy? Oh I must have missed you. I really looked for you in the crowd.
    I am really sorry, I must have gone too busy with the faculty and did not notice you.
    you should have dragged me! =p

    Thank you faizan for your participation and for covering the large distance. It was an honor.
    As far presentation is concerned, I am glad you liked it. The things related to earning were surely not new to you because
    you are there with us since more than a year and its always a pleasure to receive your chilling feedback. :)

    Yes, My Home Was Very Far Away, but your Charimza Attracted ME. Though, I Came With my DAD Who Kept waited 4 Hours Outside the University :) Really Hats off. Stunningly My Story is LOT Similar to yours (THE CHILD HOOD ONE) Will reveal Some day.
