To Dominate In Business, You Have To Take Control

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

If you are expecting that Facebook will promote your business without you paying for it, you are sadly mistaken. Those days are long gone. A way to get around that roadblock is to make sure you get all of your customer’s email addresses-and email the customer directly. Why pay Facebook to promote your products when you can do it for free? Use Facebook to find initial customers only, then use email to contact those customers about your deals and answer any questions they may have one-on-one. Facebook used to be good for business, but those days are over.

No matter what the social platform is…whether it’s Instagram, Pinterest…whatever…you need to have access to your customer’s contact info so that YOU can be in control of your marketing.

Always cut out the middle man to reduce costs. This is part of what we mean when we say “lean”.

Who says you must have a viral video?

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

 

Pay attention to what works.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quit pinning your business hopes and dreams on things like viral videos. Those are nice to have, but they aren’t going to magically increase your business.

You would be better off putting your product in front of people that want your product, vice the big crowds where probably 98% of the people don’t want to buy your widget…or whatever you are selling.

In order to dominate your business field, you have to first know where the crowd that wants your products hang out online. Pinterest has a large number of women on it. Instagram has a lot of younger people.

In order to dominate…you must learn these basics.

Your Business Will Probably Fail If You Follow Traditional Business Models

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

We can all agree that most businesses are going to fail within the first few years. The facts are out there, repeated every year with very little change.

Traditional advertising methods coupled with a traditional business model are usually the culprit. Many businesses just turn their business advertising over to some marketing agency that  charges them exorbitantly for a very low ROI.

I think that is a bad idea.

You want to know how much we pay out for our marketing?

Zero. Nada. Not a penny.

Let me ask you something, in all seriousness.

How many ads do you pay attention to? Do you go out of your way to read the ads? Or do you do like most people…mute the ads if on TV or “Skip this ad” if on Youtube.  That’s why some companies insert the ad right in the middle of the program, because they know that you’re less likely to pay attention to the ad otherwise.

So…why pay some ad/marketing agency/company lots of money… to get your ads ignored?

Here’s another question for you…if you are following the herd, and the herd is headed for a cliff, where does that lead you?

Hey, these may be tough questions to answer…but it’s better than business failure.

How long… will you do what is wrong?

There are other ways to get business to your website.

…Human Attention Span Vs. The Length of Your Blog

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

The average human’s attention span is shorter that a goldfish’s.

That means you got seconds to get your point across.

So…why write a blog post that most will never read?

How long are you going to follow the masses?

The answer to that question is how long your business is going to suffer.

How To Change In 3 Simple Words…

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

How To Change

DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Yes, it really is this easy: You have to do something different.

It helps greatly if it is the right thing to do. If you don’t know, ask a friend or get a mentor or a coach or something. Ask somebody who knows what they are doing for some guidance.

The reasoning why you must do something different is very simple. If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results. That’s why is imperative that you do something different.

Doing something different is how you change. It brings different results. I can’t make it any clearer than that. Then all you have to do is maybe make some small tweaks until you get the desired outcome.

The article titled “Do ONLY What Works” is related to this article. It is another mantra of mine and it is so important that I have made it one of the cornerstones of both my business and personal life.

Do You Really Want A Business Coach?

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

How do you know if what your business needs is a business coach?

Here’s some questions for you to ponder tonight as you drift off to sleep…

How do you know if the coach is going to do your business more harm than good?

Where does that business coach get his business ideas? From a marketer?

How do you know if the road they might send you down really leads to the eventual destruction of your business?

If the plan they have doesn’t include a plan for getting (and keeping!) more customers, what good is that for you?

Sweet Dreams!

Do ONLY What Works…

Posted on by Tom in Articles, Homepage Leave a comment

This article is related to our other article entitled “How To Change”.

If you haven’t read that, I recommend you read that as well.

This is one of the big, largely unmentioned and unspoken keys of being successful. Many people just parrot the same old sayings about how to succeed. You simply have to do what works. If you don’t know what works, you better ask someone who knows what they are doing. That way you won’t waste time and other resources doing crap that don’t work.

It’s like refusing to acknowledge (or maybe you just don’t know) that Edison invented the light bulb in 1879, so you set out to invent the light bulb. Yes, it’s a ridiculous example to prove a point. Does it really matter what year he made the light bulb? (He did it in 1879.) Not at all. It matters that it’s already been done, and somebody knows how to make one. They might even improve upon it again, as they did with LED’s.

Speaking of Edison, while working on inventing the light bulb, he supposedly said something along the lines of “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work.” .

See? Edison knew he had to find and do what works.

I’m willing to bet that if you read everything up to this point so far, and paid attention to what you read, you’ll know that Edison invented the light bulb in 1879.

Repetition works, for example. It’s one of the ways we learn. It’s how all of us learned to walk. By falling down and getting up again, and trying to walk again. And falling and getting hurt and trying again.

What does this have to do with business? Everything. You better be doing what works in your business. Or else you won’t be around very long. The business landscape is littered with the bodies of dead businesses. You KNOW what we are talking about here.

You know..,you might be amazed just how long the year 1879 stays in your brain. You can thank me for that later.
1879.
Edison invented light bulb.
1879.
Edison did what works, way back in 1879.
