When I first started out on my own (wedding video services), people in the industry that I crossed path with, told me of many ways to promote my business.
- Tie up with Mak Andams
- Go for Wedding Expo
- Word of mouth
- Network with other vendors
- Post on Facebook lah.
POST OF FACEBOOK LAH
This caught my attention. First thing came to my mind, FREE advertising. Second, easy because I already have a Facebook account. And so I did. Seriously, nothing came through.
I have been learning about internet marketing since 2008 so I do have fair knowledge about marketing online. At the same time, I set up my own website. I blogged. Searching for my own online traffic. It seems the method did not work out well for my wedding video business. Maybe the implementation wasn’t right. Maybe the tools I am using weren’t the right fit for my video business.
I AM A MAN ON A MISSION
This time around, I do not want my wedding video business to FAIL. I want to make it happen. I embarked on a learning journey for the past 14 months. Somehow, my interests in Facebook marketing grew. I develop a great interests in online marketing especially Facebook Marketing. I am learning from 5 Facebook coaches, both local and overseas. In total, I have invested close to $4000.00 in those programs and courses. (Shhh, don’t tell my wife)
Beginning this year, Alhamdullilah, my enquiries grew. People start to notice Orangefill. I am generating sales for this year and next. I have enquiries for the year 2017. Would you believe, I have enquiries for 2018.
All because of Facebook marketing.
I NEVER KNEW…
As I develop my interests in Facebook marketing, I do cross path with other business owners from other industry. Like, E-commerce seller, Designer, Motorcycle selling, Renovation companies, etc.
When the topic of marketing came about, I share my knowledge and mistakes. I would say most took action. About 70% of them said, “Nazrin, you should start a workshop and teach whatever you know. I would not mind paying to learn from you.”
The turning point was when I met this Spa owner. She really want to know how to use Facebook to market. We met. We talked. We shared. She said this, “This is what I want to know. You break them into small bites and now I understand on how to use the features and its processes. You can be a coach, you know. Coach Nazrin. “
Because of her, I was inspired.

It really feels good when you share what you have and learning from others. These participants have shared a lot with me about how they want to market their business and services. In turn, it helps me as well in marketing my video business.
WHAT THEY SAY
I am planning for the next one in October 2015. Based on the feedback I received, I will fine tune my strategies to make it more simpler to understand and implement. I have one month to prepare and make my sharing session more compact.
