If you are on any of my mailing lists, or any other marketers mailing lists I imagine you’ve been getting pummeled by email lately telling you about “product XYZ”, or “course 123″, or “here’s the early bird link”, etc. etc. etc.
Right now there is tons of launching of products going on. And guess what? It ain’t going to slow down any time soon. More are just around the corner.
And after that, guess what?
Yep, you guessed it. More Launches!
For some people this is a massive irritant. They let the volume of emails get to them and piss em off.
I’m not sure why someone would spend the energy to get upset over a email, but hey, to each their own.
The reality is, it takes two seconds to delete a email, or just unsubscribe from a marketer who’s pummeling you relentlessly and providing no value.
For other people, they love it, and soak up every email like gospel. They put them into swipe files, study them, and copy them for their own promotions.
One thing is for sure… EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT.
I have all kinds of emails from… “Take me off your F%#$@^ list you As%$##^” to….
“Thanks so much for the heads up” to…. “I’m so lost and have no idea where to start. I bought this, this, this, that and that, but don’t know what to do”.
Here’s a clue for the last guy…
Stop buying stuff!
Wait, I didn’t just say that did I?
What I meant was, start implementing what you got. The problem with 95% of people (or more) who aren’t making money online is not because they don’t have the latest product. Chances are, they haven’t even used the ones they have.
The problem really exists because people aren’t making OFFERS!
When I coach people and they tell me they aren’t making money online, the first thing I always ask is…
“How many order buttons do you have online right this second?”
Basically what I want to know is, how many places can a person actually “GIVE YOU MONEY” right now? Do you have 1 order button? 2? None? 167 order buttons?
It’s a important question to ask yourself because how in the hell are you supposed to make money if you have less order buttons then fingers on your hand?
You need some order buttons out there.
You need some offers.
This sounds like elementary stuff, but you’d be amazed at how many people are struggling, yet they can’t show me a URL with a order button with their name on it.
But hey, it’s very indicative of this industry. People get sucked in by the marketing and characters promising hopes and dreams too easily. I should know, I’m partly responsible for it.
However, I only like to promote things that I think will truly make a positive difference in someone’s life or business.
Now this post isn’t intended to tell you to stop patronizing online vendors. Not at all. But I want you to be smart about it.
Pick just a few people that you want to learn from. Pick the people that you resonate with the most, and focus on their materials. Give their stuff some effort and some time. I promise you it will work if you stick with it.
The truth is, almost all these product launches and info products from guru’s coming out are great. They really are. There is a million different ways to skin a cat, or make money online. You just need to pick the ones that are right for you.
Part of my success online is that I didn’t let too many things get me sucked down. I focused my attention on SALES, SALES, SALES, and more SALES. That is what I think is important, and it’s what drives me.
Nothing is more satisfying in marketing to me then watching Dan Kennedy get all hard core about sales and lay down the law in a grizzled veteran fashion. It’s usually not pretty to new comers, but it’s usually the hard core truth.
If I did nothing more then just listen to Dan Kennedy alone, I’d still be very wealthy.
So what I’m saying is, you gotta find your Dan Kennedy, or small group of people that you know can help you and STICK WITH IT.
You don’t need every product under the sun. In fact, many of those products are just getting in the way of you enjoying the sun.
Now get out there and play!
PS: Since product launches are not going to die any time soon, and since I still am a salesman, I do want to tell you about 2 things happening today.
Now I realize I just told you to focus and not to get totally overwhelmed with too many products. However, take a peak at these and make a educated decision as to whether or not they will truly help you.
Personally I think they will. But that’s up to you and what you do with it.
First, is the Mind Movies launch.
Check that out here (It just went live about 50 minutes ago). These folks are my friends and they are crushing it! Seriously, orders have been going NUTS! This is great stuff for people who need to stay motivated and want to attract more focus, wealth, and vitality into their lives.
Secondly, is the StomperNet deal.
Most likely you’ve already heard me talk about this during the week. However, they just bumped up the stakes big time and have thrown in a ton of new bonuses from some big time guru’s. The new bonuses will be announced later in the day. (All existing buyers will get this stuff too).
Anyhow, check out this page during the day and see when it updates.
