You NEED to Know the WHY!

March 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

Let's think about this for a minute. Someone shared an idea with you. You've signed-up! You've been given your own personal web site which promotes your new business venture. Now all you need is.....what? TRAFFIC! SALES! INCOME! Arghhhhhhhhh!

Are you smart? Are you coachable and trainable? Man, I sure hope that you are! If so, I want you to just follow along, and listen to the voice of experience for a moment, or two. Friends, I've been there, done that, got the t-shirt to prove it! I'm gonna walk you through a little of what I call "feel, felt, found!"

No traffic. New site. No income. I know how you feel. How? Well...because I've been down that road. Remember when (this is many years ago!) virtual malls were all the rage? Yep! I had 4 of them! Beautiful sites! Quality merchandise! No traffic! Frustrated? Yep, felt that! Scared? Yep, felt that,too! Now, let me tell you what I found out about that.

No traffic equals no sales. No sales equals no profits. No profits equals no business! I had to shut down my sites because I was losing money. It was a very tough learning experience for me. But I learned.

People, don't make the same mistake that I made. You see, I figured that all one has to do is to create a site, and traffic will automatically be drawn to it. Boy, was I ever HUMBLED! The traffic that did manage to find my sites was not filled with buyers.

Gosh...if I'd only had a list of targeted buyers to broadcast my links to, maybe things would have turned out differently. Regardless, I am where I am as the direct result of every decision I have made in my life up to this point. I have learned from my experiences.

We are taught that wisdom is learning from the mistakes of others. Please...learn from MY mistakes. Build your list. Develop a following. Gain the trust of those on your list. Then when you do run across a person worth listening to who has an idea worth sharing, you can simply load this information into a short email, and blast it to your entire list, no muss, no fuss.

I didn't plan to fail, I failed to plan! All the "smart" people told me to build my own opt-in list, but I didn't listen. Well, my ears have certainly been opened! Build your list, build your business, build your profits, build your future! You NEED to do this.

There are many ways to build your own list. Learn how to build it properly, and your list will actually become a valued asset. For more information visit:
