Cooperation Vs Competition for Ways of Internet Marketing
I used to think that I had to be competitive to make money online – always STRUGGLING to get my blog posts and videos to rank on Google … and let me tell you, it's no easy task!
I remember the day when I was SO HAPPY I had finally gotten up to receiving 5 leads a day because my YouTube videos were ranking on Google …
… but then it happened …
Yep that's right – banned on YouTube – and ALL my leads were GONE in flash!
So much for traditional ways of internet marketing!
Has that ever happened to you?
Well, if it has, I'm sure you can relate … And, if it has not – then let me save you the trouble of future anguish …
Here's the thing: Did you ever notice that when you run your business in COMPETITION with everyone around you, that nobody out there is willing to help you? And, in fact, there are plenty of HATERS out there in the internet marketing industry just ready and willing to take you down – sometimes just for the "fun" of it!
You may have noticed … the big-wigs companies also do not like the home business industry to succeed …
Amazon, YouTube, Google, Craigslist –
Ever been kicked from one of those?
But what about ways of internet marketing using cooperation?
Let's examine the reverse side of that – running your business with a cooperative attitude. If your only competition in your mind is YOU – always trying to do better that you did last month and always driving to do better next month – EVERYONE wants to help you! Why would that be? Cooperation is not only effective, but I've found it to be ESPECIALLY effective in the internet marketing industry!
We are all creatures in need of affection and reinforcement. We love inspiration and, as internet marketers, we find ourselves attributed to inspirational videos and messages. You are not drawn to a video where an average looking guy is telling you how he never made any money from his blog sites UNTIL he did this one "magic thing" … and now he's looking at a monthly monthly income of $ 600 after 30 days?
Are not you inspired by an article written by a senior citizen who spent all the money she had trying to support her disabled husband with the hopes and dreams of making money online, and never before could get in the black profit margin until NOW when she did this one "magic thing"?
We all LOVE to be inspired, and we love to inspire others – that's what makes this business so rewarding!
However, as an internet marketer, if you do not have the support of a team, sometimes you get the feeling like you're out there in left field just withering away.
Now compound that with haters on the internet telling you that your video sucks, and it's not long before you just turn away and quit!
And hence, the problem with signing up people online through autopilot. Unless you have a support system in place where people are constantly reinforced by one another, people will quit as soon as the next one signs up.
Between all the haters on the internet and the companies banning us from trying to market, it's a wonder that we're still trying to find new ways of internet marketing.
