Hello From Shanghai, China

Wow! That was a long flight. For awhile there, I didn’t think Sally would be able to handle the 14 hours it took to fly from LAX to Shanghai. However, once she fell asleep, she pretty much slept through the entire trip. I ran my iPad battery down to 3%. I can’t remember the last time I did that.

I’m making this post from the hotel internet and it’s proving to be harder than usual. The last time I was here, the great firewall of China allowed most of the sites that I visited in. This time around, things are a lot different. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Hootsuite are completely blocked, and Google keeps going up and down. Luckily, my blog and IM John Chow appears to work fine, except the YouTube video doesn’t load.

I left for Shanghai shortly after launching IM John Chow, and I landed to page after page of sales notifications in my Gmail (when it finally loaded). I then went to Clickbank to find the site is blocked in China! I am now on a mission to break through this firewall.

At any rate, the launch is going great I haven’t had time to look through all the emails and it’s all piling up. The reviews are coming in fast and furious and people are loving IM John Chow.

My closest friends have always put me on a pedestal as some Internet guru. Frankly, it’s just not the case. I simply happened to discover a system that works. And although I’ve tried putting it into words for years so that they can do it too, I just didn’t know how to.

A few months ago I finally sat down and worked out my system so that it made sense outside of my head, and on paper. Then I broke it down into a complete step-by-step blueprint that was both accessible and effective. IM John Chow is truly the best program I’ve ever created. If you’re still undecided, just take a look at the video and tell me what you think.

    Actually, frightening! Is the firewall a new government mandated one or just the hotel?

    1. John Chow says:

      It has always been a gov thing. They want to control the flow of information.

    Hello from Hong Kong.
    Not that i want to brag or anything but we do not have a firewall over here. 🙂

    Since you wrote this post about people reviewing your new program … would anyone be able to tell me if I can trust this review here?

    I am a very careful person in that matter and i figured that some people here might have bought it already.

    Hootsuite doesn’t work either? Last time I went, Facebook and Twitter were blocked, but it seemed the APIs were working. I guess they caught on.

    1. John Chow says:

      Ya Hootsiute along with every Twitter clients are blocked.

  9. Shanker Bakshi says:

    So even china #fail to keep mr John chow away from blogging, youtubing, facebooking, tweeting and clickbanking 🙂

  10. Tyler Ingram says:

    I am assuming you would just proxy or VPN your way out of their blocked systems eh?

    1. John Chow says:

      Ya, I have to log into a remote comp back in California or Vancouver to post on Facebook to Twitter.

  11. Where there is a will, – there is usually a way, – and if ANYONE can find it YOU will John. – Good on you and the best of luck with your mission to break through the Gov firewall.

    If flow of info is banned how come people of such countries get updated on latest developments taking place all around the world. I think they just have to rely on state media for all they want to know. A friend of mine in a country nearby China and I was shocked to listen that YouTube is banned in his country for the last one year and there is no protest for its opening. I do realize what hardships you would be facing to stay connected during your stay there. This happened to me last year when I had to go to Nepal for some business. Anyway hats of you that you became a household name of blogging despite hailing from a country where internet has yet to become popular. Looking forward to see your video while working on internet sitting over the Great Wall of China. It would definitely be a great experience if it is in your plan.

    Wow. I am privileged to be in America. I wonder how people become wealthy in China.

    Hi John,

    Hope you’re having a great time in Shanghai! Just bought your program yesterday and content is great for a beginner like me, love the videos! The layout’s a bit confusing though but given some time I’m pretty sure I’ll know where everything is.

    Hope you are enjoying your Shanghai trip John. I have started on Day 3 and got my website up today. Major milestone accomplished for me and it’s exciting times ahead. Can’t wait to see how this plays out after 30 days.

    Really strange to block Clickbank..Lucky to not be in China.

    Stockholm, Sweden

  19. Adam says:

    Also in Shanghai… i found clickbank.com is blocked but accounts.clickbank.com is not blocked… or maybe the clickbank.com homepage has some facebook or twitter code which causes it to timeout.

  20. Paul says:

    Adam, good find.. and its true that accounts.clickbank.com. loads. But when you click though to pay, it times out without a proxy. Tnx to John for bringing this up. BTW, just sent a message to your facebook page. If you are up for grabbing dinner in Shanghai, hit me on my email. Paul
