Marketing via Selling

Marketing via selling gives you a choice

of strategies to use.

Message not Seen, Selling doesn't happen

Message not Seen, Selling doesn’t happen

Rain and some more Rain…again today, so I am
spending some time inside..listening to Politics and reading emails!!!!  Selling isn’t what it is cracked up to be, so I’m doing research.  Maybe I’ll share. 

 

Chris Munch loves old stories…
here is one he used in an email I received this a.m.
 

“Getting Your Message Across Doesn’t Always Work”

“Getting Your Message Across”

 

“There was a terrible flood and a devout Christian was stuck on a roof avoiding the rising flood water.

A guy in a boat came along and said “Hop in. I’ll take you to dry land.”

The Christian said “No. Save someone else. I’ll be fine. God will

rescue me.”

Then another boat came along. Same thing…the Christian waves the boat off. “I’m okay. God’s going to rescue me. I have faith.”

A Helicopter…?

Finally a helicopter comes along but the crew can’t convince him

to get winched up to safety.

“Don’t worry about me,” he says. “God is going to save me.”

The waters keep rising and the man drowns.

When he gets to heaven he’s angry and complains to God

“I had faith that you’d save me and you let me drown.”

God says:

“I don’t know what you mean. I sent 2 boats and a helicopter!”

 

 
“Sometimes people See the Message, but just don’t get the Message.”
Hmmm..
Chris tied it into getting your email messages through.

 

But this applies to Selling in general
cause if you aren’t getting your message through
Might as well give it up as a lost cause.

 

How  Does Selling Really Work?

Have a Message
Cause  or request an Action
People Join up  or Buy (Conversions)
Earn some Income or collect likes or grow an email list!
A whole Big Plate of Yes!!!! 
On the other hand you can end up with this:
No Message
No Action
No Conversions
No Income
A whole Big Plate of No.
  • Regardless of the vehicle you use to deliver your sales message: 
  • Facebook Ads  
  • Blog posts on your WordPress  Domain 
  • Articles posted on your Blogspot blog,
  • Email messages
  • it brings us back to this simple fact: 

The message you are delivering has to connect and FAST.

Most  stats I have read seem to think that you have less than 2 seconds to hook the fish and start reeling it in.

In other words if your prospect looks and leaves, regardless of the source of your Message…you are in trouble. 

Holds true even for Videos. 

So what is a guy (or girl) to do?

Omar Martin asked the Question: Are You doing The Right Thing for Right Now!

Omar Martin Questions and Explains about

“ARE YOU DOING THE RIGHT THINGS FOR “RIGHT NOW”?

Omar Martin was answering a question about how a beginner or even a little more experienced “marketer” could improve their results and begin to earn some income using affiliate marketing.

One thing I have heard Omar emphasize over and over (in coaching classes at My Unfair Advantage) is that each person who aspires to live the much touted “Guru Life Style” is in for a rude awakening. 

There is no Shiny Magic Button.

When he begins to talk, if you want to succeed, then you had better listen.  Lets start listening now to some home truths he shared in our group.

Here’s a basic concept that eludes most people. I didn’t get it at first either but when it finally clicked, things started happening MUCH faster for me.

People always say “Model Success” – and it makes perfect sense right?

If you want what a man has then “do what a man does”. Great saying.

HOWEVER…

you’ve got to understand that what a man is doing NOW to grow what he has

is NOT the same thing he did to GET what he has now.

 

Let me break it down for you…

  1. Those things I was doing daily in my online business to get to 5 figures were totally different than what I had to do to get to 6 figures.
  2. The things I had to do daily to get to 6 figures were totally different than the things I had to do to get to 7 figures.

Those things I’m doing daily NOW to get to 8 figures are COMPLETELY different than the things I was doing when I first started.

I mean some “core” things are the same: like checking emails and stuff like that, but then again, even a lot of those functions are much more streamlined now and I use assistants for a lot more things now as well.

The Lesson to be Learned!

The lesson to be learned here is that if you’re just starting out but trying to model EXACTLY what I’m doing now then you’ll probably fall flat on your face.

Notice I said “probably” cause there’s always that superstar that can jump into the game, take one look at what I’m doing, master it and then get even BETTER at it then me.

The Key to Adapting a Business Program.

  • *The key is to follow the steps I took to get me here, using the knowledge of how I broke through certain barriers and it will help you do it even faster than me.
  • *If you are expecting to jump on the scene and make 6 or 7 figures in a matter of months or even in your first year then you’ve got a rude awakening coming bro, and it’s gonna hit you right in the face. HARD.
  • *This is a business. Period. If you think of it ANY other way you’ll fail.
    I don’t give a sh** what anybody says. Chances are if they tell you something different, they’re just trying to sell you something.

Most start up business out there don’t turn a profit for the first 5 years and that’s IF they make it past year number 3. This varies by industry, so do some research.

Do yourself a favor and stop trying to get rich tomorrow and stop looking for that easy button because this sh** right here takes hard freaking work.

Anything that’s worth anything always does.

  • There is no coach out there that can teach you work ethic and conviction.
  • And there’s no product out there that contains them either.
  • You’re either determined or you’re not.

The cool thing about being an ONLINE business owner is that it takes very little start up capital, and you can build it piece by piece from your lap top in a spare room like Melinda and I did.

  • We had no extraordinary technical skills what so ever.
  • We just had conviction 
  • Funny thing is that with enough conviction everything else falls into place.

P.S. Reworded a little, but most of the above is from a post on Facebook inside the My Unfair Advantage group page, explaining why you can’t just be a beginner and start copying what Omar is doing right now and expect automatic success and why you will run into trouble.
Thanks for  reading.
