Are You Practicing Attraction Marketing or Pushy Marketing?

That is the question.

And you’re not practicing attraction marketing if you go around thinking your way is the only way.

This blog post and accompanying video were spawned by a post I saw on Facebook that hit a nerve. In fact, it’s one of my pet peeves when it comes to any kind of marketing, online or offline.

And that’s when a marketer is approached by a possible new prospect because they’re looking to make more money, and after the business owner explains the business, the prospect says, ‘Not interested.’

And the marketer automatically assumes that this person is not going to make any money anywhere because they didn’t sign up with them.

I can’t tell you how much this aggravates me hearing this from marketers today!

The Scenario

Okay, you’re in business “A.” Your business is not the only business out there to make money. And your business is not the only way to make money. And just because someone passed on your business doesn’t mean that that person is going to fail or that that person isn’t interested or that person isn’t serious about making money.

What it means is that your program – or you – are not a good match with that other person. And it happens!

Stop thinking that if I don’t sign up with you, it’s my loss; I’m the one who’s not going to make any money, I’m not serious.

No! It’s because not every program is for every one. If it was, there would only be one business in the entire world and everybody would have to do it.

There are thousands of ways to make money.

There are also people that don’t want to make money real fast. There are some people that don’t want to earn a full time living. There are some people that don’t want to make $15,000 a month.

That doesn’t mean that they’re losers. That doesn’t mean that they’re failures. That doesn’t mean that they’re not interested in making money.

That just means that they’re in a different mindset than you. Not that they’re in the wrong mindset; they’re in a different mindset from you.

That’s what competition, the free market and is all about! Get over yourself!

Personal Branding

You’re supposed to be marketing YOU and you are not the only person who can teach everybody how to make money. And if people move away from you then they’re not serious.

I signed up a new guy in my business and inside of 24 hours he sent me an email and he said, ‘After going through the program, I realize that I really don’t want to devote that much time; I really don’t have the time to devote to market this business properly.’
