Do as I Say
Nah, I’m not into giving orders, but I am into telling you some of the things I do, and a few from other successful TE marketers! There are certain things that are just patently obvious to me that seem to be real hard for people in general to do. I’m going to list some, and try to explain my reason(s) why.
Can’t you See
Yep, Marshall Tucker Band. “Can’t you see, Ohhh can’t you see…?”
Show yourself to the world. Have an avatar (the little picture on many posts), and make it be of you. Let people know what you look like! Don’t hide behind a kitty or a car or even a 15 year old picture of you. And STICK WITH IT. As you become more familiar to more people, more people will start to know, like and trust you. As people know, like and trust you they open their wallet. That easy.
Rolling Stones….”splattered all over Manhattan”.
Pick a product and stick with it. Nobody, not anybody, can promote 27 things at once. In the beginning it really doesn’t matter the product (so long as it is reputable and good), you are just trying to drive traffic to YOU. You want people to get to know, like and trust you. As they do, they will open their wallet, or at least divest themselves of a little of their precious time. Do we see a trend beginning here?
Sly and the Family Stone….”I want to thank you for lettin’ me be mice elf again…”
Say ‘Thank You’. Just like what your Momma told you. When somebody compliments you, when somebody comments, offers you constructive criticism, or gives you something, say Thank You. When you do, people get to know, like and trust you. When people know, like and trust you, they begin to open their wallets. Trend established!
Talk Too Much
George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers….”Yakkity Yakkity Yak you talk too much…”
Nonsense. No such thing as talking too much in this business. Comments in chat, comments on profiles, comments on Sweeva, talk to people. Be friendly, offer help (and give it!!), give sympathy. Every chance you get. As you expose yourself to individuals, people get to know, like and trust you.
I Can See For Miles
The Who….”I can see for miles and miles…..”
Video and spreecast are your friends. Video for advertising, Spreecast for getting yourself out in the public eye. Both let people see the real you and when people see the real you they begin to know, like and trust you. I never have over 3 or 4 in my weekly Spreecast, but I always have 50-75 views of the recording! People really can see for miles!
And in the End
The Beatles….”and in the end…” Thanks for putting up with my musical nonsense. The rest isn’t nonsense, it is real live stuff that you can do every single day. It will help your cause, I guarantee!
I’m just sayin’
