The desk of Sonny Ahuja

Founder – KiLLiTOnLine.com
Do you realize internet marketing will be completely different in 2012 than a year ago?
Every thing has changed since I first started marketing my business online only 5 years ago.
I can still remember when I first launched my perfume website.
It all started for me about 6 years ago in my warehouse. A little while before that I had 5 stores in malls and I did 13 premium B2B trade shows a year nation wide. Business was on up swing and I was looking into making my dream a reality by launching a chain of stores in Chicago land area.
But then not all dreams come true! With rise of Internet Giants like Amazon, Buy.com, eBay and few other humongous sites that started to provide merchandise at much lower prices than high end malls, our business started to decrease first slowly and then sales slowed faster than the speed of falling Skylab.
Soon enough I had to pull out of most malls and stop doing trade shows. Everything happened so fast that it didn’t give me enough time to come up with a profitable exit strategy.
Suddenly I was under heavy debt from my suppliers, malls and credit cards. Everyone around me advised to fold the business and file bankruptcy. Yes at the time it was the easy way out.
However I had something else in mind. You see I started with a few hundred dollars, worked my way up to owning a small chain and having one of the largest perfume booths in trade shows. I did not work my back off for 7 years just to go bankrupt. I had better plans and I wanted to stick to them.
Swimming against the tide would have been easier if only i knew how to swim at the first place.I did some research and found most of our clients had started buying perfumes online as the prices there were much less and couldn’t be matched with mall over heads.
So I decided to get me a fancy website! After calling a few companies that could handle a 7000+ page ecommerce website, integrate it with a shopping cart I knew I had to find another way as the lowest quote I got was for $20,000+. I had no money and my credit cards were maxed out so I shut myself in a room for 30 days and learnt how to design, develop and launch an ecommerce website.
And so Grandperfumes.com was born. The problem was that I didn’t know anything about "traffic”, "conversions”, "leads”, "credibility”, "search engines” or anything else that’s needed to make a website successful. The only thing I knew was how to check emails and surf the net!
After finding the importance of Search Engine Optimization I hired a company out of Seattle, bought the platinum $3000 package only to have them shut down in 3 weeks & run away with my money that I didn’t have. Then I hired another company out of Utah but still the results of my website did not improve.
So once again I shut my self in a 10x10 office and learnt SEO and brought my site on page one of Google in over 1000 keywords. There was a time when Grandperfumes was on page 1 of MSN on every single perfume and cologne we carried. That was over 7000 keywords (I cracked the way to be on page one of MSN accidentally!)
Then came Social Media, Paid Advertising and so forth. Today between me and Ami, we have over 103,000 followers on Twitter and over 11,000 Facebook friends and fans. We have a huge email list that keeps growing automatically everyday with multiple optins on different sites.
Ami has taken over our perfume business and all fragrances are drop shipped by our vendor in New Jersey. Though we have one of the highest varieties of fragrances in the world on Grandperfumes, we don’t own any of it. The business cost us less than $1000/month to run. Therefore it can never incur a loss no matter how bad the economy gets. Now that’s working smart.
I on the other hand coach clients and their staff on how to monetize social media. I also design websites, bring them on page one of search engines, run adwords campaigns for clients and help them make more money in different ways.
We now work from our home office and so are able to spend more quality time with our kids and each other than we could ever have running multiple stores in malls.
I am proud to say we have paid off our suppliers, have loyal clients in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South America besides all 50 states of United States. Though I couldn’t take my business 90 miles away to Chicago, I’ve taken it as far as Australia and Europe.
There’s a lot we have learnt in last 5 years through trial and error about Social Media, Internet Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Email Marketing and so forth that we plan to share with KiLLiTOnLine community.
Besides how to make money from internet we have learnt how to stay strong, keep it together and stay positive in life.
Ami ran for Mrs. Wisconsin in March 2011 and bagged 3 out of 5 awards and became first Indian American in history to do so. She lost 23 lbs in 54 days, went from size 10 to 0 all while running 2 businesses, taking care of our kids and running her women’s only group.
Other than how to monetize internet we will share how to have a better life with our members. A life that’s easier to achieve listening to someone who’s already done it. If only we had someone to show us our treasure map five years ago!
We are not experts in everything so we will bring other highly successful people on board, interview them and find what other strategies work to increase income online and how else can we have a better life.
Now we surely don’t have a magic pill nor can we show you how to become a millionaire overnight. For that you need to look for someone else. However we will show you our time tested step by step system that is easy to follow in simple plain English which will help you draw your treasure map.
Don’t worry, we hate computer and business jargon as much as you do!
If however you want the practical knowledge of which tips, tricks and short cuts to implement for increasing your income by using the massive power of social media at a steady pace…then look no further.

"As I’ve been searching for ways to market my new book, Whole Health Healing-The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible For All Ages, I was growing increasingly frustrated with the complexity of the task, and the "wolves” who seemed only interested in collecting steep fees. Then I met Sonny Ahuja, who was able to explain the process of building my brand and gaining an internet following, in easy to follow, practical terms. He built my ’stunningly attractive’ web/blog sites quickly and reasonably, and he is handling my daily Twitter feeds. I’ve recommended Sonny to several of my friends already, and I think he should brand himself as The ‘down-to-earth’ internet marketing genius”

"We’ve had a boatload of great speakers at Wisconsin Business Owners and Sonny Ahuja was among the best. He addressed one of our largest audiences to date in December 2009. Though the audience expertise varied widely, Sonny kept everyone’s interest in the subject matter. Everyone, including some very experienced and sophisticated social media marketers, was able to come away with more than a couple of "take-aways” from Sonny’s presentation – and the business owners there without much experience were thrilled with the knowledge they gained. I met Sonny via Twitter, and meeting him in person before our "Lunch & Learn” was like meeting an old friend for the first time.

Sonny’s presentations about Social Media are very engaging, easy to understand and filled with valuable, thought provoking information that you can put to use the same day. I have started following Sonny’s tips on how to use Twitter and have already seen a marked increase in quality followers and ROI. Sonny is a friendly person who’s easy to get along with and is generous with his time, energy and resources. As a coach, he will guide you to success with patience, yet give you a push when needed. I have collaborated with him on different projects and have enjoyed working with him each time. In front of the camera he is the consummate professional who makes you feel at ease no matter what.

"I attended one of Sonny's BBB webinars. The topic was LinkedIn Advanced. Following Sonny's suggestions I was able to improve the profile of both myself and my boss, Dave Mattheis. Dave now ranks #2 in searches for "roofing Milwaukee"!
I found Sonny's instruction and format for the webinar to be very easy to follow. Sonny took time to answer live questions posted and even helped troubleshoot when attendees got lost in their live updates.
I took copious notes to refer back to the wealth of information and found it very helpful to have the webinar emailed to me to review at my leisure. I plan to attend more free webinars as my schedule allows.”
