Publisher Management Executive - June 2012 - Feb 2013
I worked here from the very first day of the establishment of this ad network system as a Media Management Executive. My mission is to develop categorized media channels as well as to buy ad placements on high-traffic websites. We sell these ad placements to advertisers through eClick’s ad network. Negotiating with publishers (website owners) to get ad placements with competitive prices is the big part of this game.
Thegioididong.com & Dienmay.com (now Dienmayxanh.com)

Ambient Digital Marketing
Online Media Executive - Sep 2010 - Sep 2011
This was the first time i got used to ad network system. Before working for this company, I had done lots of research about ad network system in other countries and realized that this was the next trend of media in Vietnam. This company gave me a chance to work as a part of a newly established ad network.
My work here was to develop media channels as well as buy floating popup placements on high-traffic websites. These placements will be sold to advertisers through Ambient’s ad network. Negotiating with publisher (website owners) to buy ad placements with competitive prices was quite challenging at this time. I also had chances to work with big publishers in Vietnam like Zing.vn, Thanhnien.com.vn, Vietbao.vn, bongdaso.com, vietgiaitri.com….etc. Finally, we were blessed and got quite a good achievement. We leveraged Ambient to the leading ad network in Vietnam within 1 year.

Selling computer and fashion accessories online
Co-Owner - Feb 2013 - May 2014
At this time, e-commerce is totally new in Vietnam. I wanted to know exactly how e-commerce can actually leverage the retail business. So i built my own website named DocRe.net to sell computer and fashion accessories. I enjoyed doing SEO for the website, content marketing for all the products, conducting Google Adwords and Facebook Ad campaigns, promoting products on other e-commerce listing channels: Vatgia.com, 123mua.com.vn, 5giay.vn… I also managed product consulting, orders and even delivery. I was a “superman” at that time. This chapter of my life gave me a real experience of “running an e-commerce company with one man”.

I decided to create a my own blog and experience the “real feel” of Social Media, Facebook Marketing, Content marketing, and SEO. I shared my own experience and research about these fields. Luckily, it touched the hearts of many readers. I don’t update this blog any more but i must say this blog is the best online marketing teacher i’ve ever had.
My blog got a great achievement: mrthang.net’s Google Page Rank leveraged from 0 to 3 after 1 year. Monthly traffic reached nearly 24,000 visits, over 35,000 page views and 20,000 unique visitors. DMOZ.org listed my site after 1.5 years.

It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, INTJs know this all too well. They form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population – it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with this personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.
Quick, Imaginative and Strategic Mind – INTJs pride themselves on their minds, taking every opportunity to improve their knowledge, and this shows in the strength and flexibility of their strategic thinking.
High Self-Confidence – INTJs trust their rationalism above all else, so when they come to a conclusion, they have no reason to doubt their findings.
Independent and Decisive – This creativity, logic and confidence come together to form individuals who stand on their own and take responsibility for their own actions.
Hard-working and determined – If something piques their interest, INTJs can be astonishingly dedicated to their work, putting in long hours and intense effort to see an idea through.
Open-minded – All this rationalism leads to a very intellectually receptive personality type, as INTJs stay open to new ideas, supported by logic, even if (and sometimes especially if) they prove their’ previous conceptions wrong.
Body Building & Health
Strong body and good health are the basic foundation for success. Exercises boost your happiness, confidence and keep you enjoying life. We human are born to get moving not staying 8 hours a days sitting on a chair and staring at the computer. You can call it my “superstition”.
Bowling: I have a great passion for this sports. I’ve been playing bowling and competing in the amateur tournaments in Vietnam for 6 years. If you want to know more about this sports, go to my own website about bowling at happybowlers.com. I have a dream of playing bowling professionally and traveling around the world for tournaments.
