So you want to go out there and you’re ready to get the word out about your product and make a million sales. Great. Let’s go!
There’s a double-whammy I’m talking about here and that double-whammy is marketing.
Instead of taking your product and finding out where it fits in, what if you found out what people are looking for and made that fit them?
Sometimes a lot of money, thought, time, effort, and heart goes into preparation of materials, products, ads, etc. only to find out the heart-breaking truth that NOBODY CARES! =(=(
I don’t mean selling your soul and just going with the masses because that’s not my shtick, baby. But… if you could test what it is that you want to do against what people are looking for you can find out if it matches. Or, you can tweak a few things to make what it is that you’re creating fit the market more perfectly and thereby cause your profits to shoot through the roof!
So here’s thing, I met this guy not too long ago and we began talking about what it is that he could do to help my community and if there was a way that I could help his community. You guys know that I’m not going to put a bunch of junk out there in front of you but you also know that most of the things that are classified as junk are rarely actually junk but the practitioner not putting them to use. I’m not trying to sugarcoat stuff so please forgive me if that sounded harsh but you know what I’m saying. There is no magic button is all.
Well, I just got wind of what he has going on and it’s something that directly pertains to checking the market.
It’s a “niche checker”. The buddy I was talking about is Menno Spijkstra (I love that name!) and he’s got a report for you that’s free (now that’s definitely up our alley=) I definitely want to keep you up to speed with the free goods) . Here’s the goal of that report.
-ideas for your online business
-zeroing in on the right niche market
-shows you how to spend your time and energy in the right place
The goal here is to make sure that all of your time and energy isn’t all for naught and even if you have an offline business this can help you maximize your advertising because maybe there is a small nugget you’re getting just slightly off.
Let me make a disclaimer to you guys as well. I’m not getting paid to market this stuff. This is not an affiliate link for me. For all of you other guys out there I think it’s a great way to make some extra cash and work things out but you need to be careful how you go about doing that. What this is all about is giving you the opportunity to act on it how you will. I’m all about free reports so I like to pick things up where I can. I also try to buy every course I can because I’m always trying to grow and it helps in the long run. =)
Like I said earlier in this post and in other posts, always network, you never know what can come of it. I’ve got Menno sharing my stuff with his community and I hope it helps them too and I hope they’re receptive to me and that they take what I say and take over the world with it. Trust me, there IS enough to go around, contrary to popular opinion.
I had a gentleman contact me and ask how to monetize his site and I ABSOLUTELY welcome any and all questions, suggestions, etc. If there is something you want me to cover then let me know and I’ll get on it ASAP =) I’m finding more about what he does and maybe I’ll talk about it here and it’ll give you an idea that you can apply to yours as well. I’ll keep you posted.
In the mean time, think about what I said about looking before you leap. Don’t sell your soul and just slave for the market but remember that the reason you’re here is TO HELP PEOPLE. If you’re not paying attention to what people are saying they want or need, are you really helping them? Are you giving them something that is of value to them? You may only need to tweak what you have 10% and that 10% can account for an additional 80%-90% in sales!!! Remember the 80/20 rule? It’s true.
