Are You An Internet Marketer
We all are marketers, from the first time we ask out neighbor to mow the lawn, to the meeting with the boss for that promotion. When you go on your first date, till the time you get married. From day one we are marketing ourselves and/ or our services. So we had better get with the program right from the beginning. That is one universal trait we all must share.
Education always seems harder than it really is, and I think part of the problem lies in our preconceived notions of certain things. It may be from something we learned many years ago or heard from someone who we hold a great deal of respect for. But many times, the things we resist the most, on the surface, are the exact things we need to learn. So, that being said, we really need to pay attention to what it is we are resisting. Because its probably an area we are either fearful of or need to learn from. Fear is very motivating and also can be liberating.
For example, I have a small fear of public speaking. Hooray, Im in the box with everyone else on that one. It may be from when I was little, being forced to do a presentation in front of the class. But just the recognition of it has released at least half of the tension associated with it. Also, if you find yourself in a fearful situation, just ask yourself, whats the worst that can happen? Just analyze your answer and many times youll find no real reason for a fear. I guess not being formally educated in the art of marketing may cause a fear of it. But Ive come to the realization that Ive always been a marketer. At times, a fairly good one. Other times, not so good. Always strive to take away the lesson being offered with the situation you may find yourself in. That way youre not doomed to repeat it.
So if you havent come to grips with it yet, its time now. Say to yourself, I AM A MARKETER. Admit it. Be proud of it. OWN it. Make it yours. Nothing to be afraid of. Its human nature. To those doubting what Im saying, step out of your own shoes and look at it from outside the box. AHAAA. Get it? Wait for it How about now? Good. Now go out there and market something. It really doesnt matter what. Practice with anything, so that when you have a good product, people wont even know why they bought from you. Theyll just say damn, theyre good. What did I buy again?
I hope this helps clear things up a little. By the way, I love marketing now. And guess what, I no longer fear it. Lesson learned, now I can progress. You can only have one at a time as theyre opposites. So until next time, take care and remember to
