Keeping it in perspective with online marketing
So has the stomach bug hit?
I am home from work again today, as my middle child (I have three girls) got the wrath of the bug last night.
This past Friday, it was the oldest so I am wondering whether the youngest is due or already had a milder case and we didn’t think about it as she never threw up.
We all react differently to the same situations and that is what I want to focus on today. What one person thinks is no big deal, another may be having a total fit over.
If you are in (or have ever been in) a relationship, you know exactly what I mean. One person does something that they feel is alright and the other takes is totally the wrong way.
The same happens in business. What you might consider something you feel has value and benefits other, someone might see as spam…
You would have to do some pretty crazy stuff for that of course, but I hope you get my point. The perspective of the person often is based on the experiences they have had leading up to this event.
If someone is use to getting a ton of emails daily, then they are not surprised when the next person send them emails everyday. If you just signed up for your first email list, this might come as a surprise to you that we would take the time to develop the relationship.
If anything, this is the most important thing to do. Get then to know about it, learn what are interests and experiences are and much more so that we can keep it on a level playing field.
I do not claim to be better or worse than the next guy, but I do claim to have put in countless hours, sometimes to the disgust of my wife and children, so that I can be one of the most valuable people you have a relationship with online.
Just the other day I shared a story about my interest and near death experience with sharks. If you missed it, come check it out again.
When it comes to perspective, we all need to be able to see it from both sides. While many marketers online will see thier product as the latest and greatest, what it really comes down to is whether or not it solves a problem…
To be specific, does it solve my problem?
Does it make my life online easier?
Does it save me money?
These are probably three of the most important questions you could be asking yourself as you either start the building of your own Internet Empire, or as you continue to grow one that is already established.
Whether you have been online a day or 5 years, each day will bring something new and educational. Being able to seize the day (CARPE DIEM!) is the key.
Right now you have that chance to hit on all three key questions above in regards to making live easier, solving problems and saving me money.
My buddy Joel Therien has outdone himself here with his new marketing services and has put together a video that you need to sit down and watch.
If you can’t watch it now, forward this email to yourself, so that it appears NEW again and watch it later.
If he does not hit on all three major ideas I will be shocked and would love to hear how YOU are currently doing it and you need to send me an email with details.
I have made use of this for almost 3 years now and could not be happier. Well, I take that back, I will be happier when you watch the video and are proactive.
By that, I mean realizing what you have in front of you as a choice, instead of being reactive months or years down the road when your problems were not solved, your life was not made easier and you did not save the money you could have.
