It seems as though getting the attention of people online is extremely difficult…
Internet marketers, for example, will do extremely crazy things just so people, like you, will buy from them. For instance, when there’s a “big product launch” happening, hundreds of Joint-venture partners and affiliates join in to make as much commissions and try to get to the top of the “JV Top 10″ or Top 20, just so they can win a cash prize or a toy (at the very least).
I’ve seen some really crazy bonuses and bribes in the past – from ATV’s (All Terrain Vehicles), to a package full of hundreds of resell rights products.
I won’t deny it, I do crazy things just so you can buy from me too. What I don’t do is pile on irrelevant and unnecessary junk, just so I can make a sale.
Unfortunately, this is the world we live in now. My main niche is in the “Internet marketing” niche, and it’s super-competitive.
You’re seeing it a lot nowadays:
Under pricing of products – competitors selling the same product, but at a cheaper price.
A product claiming that you’ll get rich with their “magic pill”, and you HAVE to learn from them because they’ve been in business for X number of years, made three-million online from “doing nothing”, has a nice house and car(s).
Special software scripts and mechanisms that change the price of your product every 20 minutes or whatever – to make you buy the offer, before the price increases.
The list goes on…
These marketing and selling “tricks” aren’t new. They’ve been around ever since value was exchanged for another value. Everything’s just evolved and enhanced because of the technology we have nowadays.
Contrary to the point, here are some miscellaneous principles which I think should be emphasized (may be irrelevant, but I wanted to share it with you) -
Exchanging value – “You give me that, and I’ll give you this”. It’s traditionally called barter.
Build trusts and relationships with prospects and customers
Never insult your prospect’s or customer’s intelligence – treat them like a human being
Add value, give quality and original information – What’s your unique selling proposition (USP)? There’s already enough people mailing out offers every single day of the week. What makes your newsletter different to the rest?
Getting back to the point…
Do you feel like you’re losing direction, or focus, because there’s just so much information out there and so many people telling you to “buy from them”?
What do you think about this? This is just the way I view things. You may have a totally different perspective than me. I really don’t know. Post your comments. I’d love to hear from you – whether it’s good or bad.
Thanks. I appreciate your time reading this.
