Muhammad Noer, or Noer as he likes to be called, was born in Sumatra Indonesia.
As a side project while working his full-time job, he started a personal blog because he wanted to get back into writing. His topics were speed reading and slide presentations, two subjects he is passionate about.
Indonesia is huge, one of the most populated countries on the planet. However it’s not as well developed in terms of technology infrastructure, nor is the Indonesian language world wide web as crowded with content resources.
Noer, of course, was publishing everything in Indonesian, targeting his home country. He quickly grew his blog and then when he saw how much interest there was in speed reading and presentations, he started two websites dedicated to these topics – again in Indonesian.
He started the speed reading one first, writing blog articles, then wrote a free ebook he gave away in exchange for joining his newsletter. He then created ten free videos about speed reading and used a mini-launch formula to promote his first training product on speed reading.
His product is seven video modules, however he only produced the first two, sold the product, then created the remaining five as his early paying members went through the program.
I was very impressed to hear this story because Noer followed the formula I teach in Membership Site Mastermind, but he did it in Indonesian, which I think is especially cool.
Today Noer has over 1,000 paying members to his two products and over 20,000 subscribers to his websites.
Noer is an inspiration for any person who is interested in following the blog to newsletter to selling a training product model, and doing it in your native language.
There is a huge opportunity in many countries around the world to be like Noer because the competition is not sophisticated. You can capture Google traffic because you will have an advantage knowing how to blog.
Listen to this interview and Noer will reveal everything he does to get traffic, create his products, what technology he uses for his newsletter, blog, and membership site, how he creates videos and a whole lot more.
