So true. Take a look at the top people in your industry, because your prospects, people interested in your business because of a 1) pain, 2)fear they will be in pain, or 3) an unaccomplished gain, or 4) an impending event in their lives(change of some sort they want to be financially ready for) are doing just that.
If they do not have one of the four things stated above they are not really prospects. Be social with them but no that right now, and this can change, but right now they are not going to buy what you are selling, because they do not want it or need it.
People looking at your business want to see how you measure up. They also want to see that you are a real person. But, don’t over do it. Staying on facebook all day ,does not produce income for your business, unless you know the techniques that exist to do that. Be on social networks enough to see and be seen, and then focus on income producing activities.
I recommend, and I learned this from Tracey Walker(listening to the Inner Circle Audios ask me about those in the comments below) that you “never try to measure yourself by anyone else.”
Create your dreams, do what your mentor(s) tell you in the beginning of your business, until you start to figure it out, and you will.
Market research is the first step in any business. Ask yourself, “Who do I want to sell to?” In business you either sell a product or service. They are either your creation or someone else’s. That is how you make your living.
Once you get crystal clear on that one area of your business you will start to see positive results that last. You can always fool the system, but eventually it catches up with you. Learn who you are really selling to and you will not spend more than you should on paid advertising.
Believe that and stay at it until you figure out the science of being in business online or offline. It is a science that can be learned, it just involves the psychology of people. Remember you are always selling to a person. Help them buy. People hate change in their lives because change represents pain. Their compelling reason(s) for working with you have to be greater than the pain of change.
I learned that from my mentors Dan Kreutzer and Robert Lambert of The Samurai Business Group
