Lesson # 2 – Are You Ready To Think Like A Marketer?
Thinking like a marketer is crucial to your success. It is crucial to your success as a marketer. You need to STOP surfing for pennies and START marketing for dollars.
You will find that everywhere you look that everyone teaches you the systems, or the how to “make money online”, but very seldom will you find anyone that teaches you that you also need to know how to think like a marketer. This is the missing piece.
Do you honestly want to be a successful internet marketer? If so, then you need to not only think like a marketer but also be a marketer.
How can you possibly go about trying to build an internet marketing business without BEING a marketer? It is like trying to build a house with no foundation. What happens to the house not built upon a good solid foundation? No wonder so many people don’t make money!
But being a marketer would mean you have to sell something and who wants to be a “sales person”? It doesn’t sound very exciting does it? Our minds think of the car salesman and who wants to be seen as the person following you around constantly pitching to you. I have to tell you though that selling is part of the game and is very essential if you are going to be a marketer. “NOBODY” makes money until they sell something.
I can teach people my systems of how I make money online and that very same information that makes tens of thousands of dollars for some may be nothing more than confusion and frustration for you. Why do we see the same information in a different way? The reason that it does is something that I had to find out for myself before I could make the “how to make money systems” work for me… It was going through my “marketing filter” in my mind without being processed the same as it would for those that were thinking like marketers.
I had a problem with selling to people. I had problems of seeing things as opportunities instead I looked at the things I was doing as something everyone else would criticize me for.
A true marketer will see opportunities to make money all around him or her. Do you see opportunities to make money all around you?
What about all of the email messages that come into your inbox on a daily basis. Do you look at them and try and see the marketer’s side of the messages that was just sent to you? Do you try and see the methods he is using so that you can possibly use them as an opportunity for you to get results as well? It is quite probable that you see them as an ordinary consumer would see them. You see them as clutter. You see them as ways to take your money. Maybe you see them as nothing more than a bunch of scammers out to get you.
The same thing applies to the way you think about money. Even if you get lucky and actually make some money, I have to tell you that it is not enough to just make money. You can make money and even a lot of money and still end up right back in the same place you began. Broke!
Unless you understand it, have confidence in it and confidence in yourself, and the same ways of thinking as all successful marketers have, you will never win.
You must first understand how the Marketer thinks about the opportunities and money and how it differs from the way you may be thinking.
Regardless of how much money you make, you will end up right back where you started if you don’t change your thoughts about the opportunities that face you every day and about the money you will make.
Make a mental commitment to change the way you think and exercise it every day!
