What it is Like to Be an Internet Marketer
For the most part it is like being in a giant room full of water. Each individual drop of water representing someone who has the best product, opportunity, new money making scheme, or, traffic building method. All these drops of water are trying to get you to drink them. There is far to much water to drink, if you try you will explode.
What do you do?
Just take a sip and savor it. Many marketers make the mistake of trying everything that comes along. The next thing sounds better than the last thing, they jump right in. Five minutes later they see something even better. They do not have time to be successful in anything because they are trying everything.
Just sip. Enjoy each sip like it may be your last sip of water. Savor it, Relish it, take full advantage of all of its benefits. Then, decide if you are still thirsty. If you are, take another sip. Just do not gulp.
What to do if you are a drop of water waiting to be sipped.
Stay away from gulpers, they will just spit you out on the floor and take another drink. They will do you no good. You need to look for sippers.
How to find sippers? Sippers are willing to spend time and money, they value their investment. You probably will not find many of them hanging out at the Free sites. Sippers may use a free site, but they are not going to have it as their home page. To find a sipper you need a product that will give them real value. Something that will solve one of their major problems.
If you have something of value that sippers would want, how do you get a sipper to drink you?
Add some food coloring.
You need to stand out. In your advertising you need to show up like neon under a black light. Study what other people are doing. When some ones ad catches your eye, take note of the ad. What about it caught your eye? The color, the font, the message? What tripped your trigger. Write it down and then utilities the information in your next ad.
Use unexpected and shocking subject lines or headings. In a email ad for the subject you could use some thing like "My House Just Exploded because of this! Then on the inside of the ad start out with" but I do not care I have ….. Get the idea. You need something different, something that stands out. When you find something that works, Use it everywhere you can think of or afford to buy.
