Are You Building a Business or a Hobby?

Hey guys,

Here is a question I asked myself back when I started out in internet marketing years ago..

Did I want to run a business, or did I just want to do it as a ‘hobby’.

You see, there’s a huge difference between the two, in how you decide to run your online business.

Basically there are two ways to consider how you really want this whole online business thing to turn out. But this is really important because it’s a choice you need to make sooner than later when you’re thinking about starting an online business for yourself.

Here are your choices:

  1. Build a business, create long term wealth.
  2. Sell stuff online as a hobby.

You can either seriously build your business, focus on creating long term wealth, create a foundation that will enable you to sell ‘any’ product or service based on the brand you’ve created for yourself.

.. or..

You can just ‘sell stuff online’.  Be a faceless, nameless, anonymous affiliate and focus on getting traffic to your affiliate links. Nothing more, nothing less.

Now, there’s honestly nothing wrong with choosing either option. But you should make this choice as soon as you can, otherwise you’ll be forever stuck in ‘limbo’ without any real path to follow.

You have to understand there are big differences between these two choices..

Building a business and focusing on creating long term wealth is a LOT of HARD work. But the pros far outweigh the cons. You’ll be building something you can be proud of, something you can stand behind and something that can realistically generate millions of dollars in sales, and something that generates true passive long term income.. It sounds great (and it is) but you have to be COMMITTED to following through. Not for months, for years.

On the other hand, if you just want to ‘sell stuff online’.. Yes, you can make a lot of money doing this as well, however you have to realize that if you traffic stops (if YOU stop), your sales will too. And once your sales stop, you’ll be right back where you started..

There are two paths you can follow, and I can help you with both, but YOU have to choose and ACCEPT the reality of the choices you make. ie. If you don’t choose to build a solid brand and business, don’t expect to HAVE a business.

That’s all, just make a choice so you can follow through with what that choice is.

Have a great day!

– Geoff.

No Excuses Summit 3 – What they got from me.

Hello all,

It’s interesting.. since speaking at the No Excuses summit in Las Vegas last month I’ve been in touch with a lot of people that attended the event, and what’s interesting is what they had to say about it, and what they learned (and what they didn’t).

Here’s how I went about planning, presenting, and targeting a specific group of people..

When I planned my presentation for the event, I was very specific about who I was targeting with my information. The words and language that I used, the look and ‘feel’ of the presentation, the “goofy” graphics I had in the powerpoint, that corny touchy-feely stuff at the start, and even how I spoke, was all meant to target a certain sector of the attendees. I love marketing :)

To be honest, it was kind of an experiment on my part and I wanted to prove (to  myself, really) that I could zero in on a group of people in attendance who would be attracted to the type of information I was providing. I also know what kinds of people are attracted to ME.

You see, I was in attendance at the previous No Excuses event last year and I was pretty sure that there was a large percentage of the attendees there that were in the “this is totally over my head” group. People that wanted to take their business to the “next level” even though they hadn’t even got to the “first level” yet. People that got a lot of value from the speakers at the event but still realized that when they got home afterwards they didn’t really know what to DO, know what I mean? It’s like being in the middle class while the speaker is speaking directly to the upper class. It’s all great stuff but “I’m not THERE yet”.

That was my target audience and I think I nailed it.

How do I know?

I know because of the response I got from the many attendees (and speakers) that approached me after I presented. The general feeling I got from their response was that of “thank you for breaking it down and making it simple for me, how can I work with you?“.  It was almost like they were relieved that I was willing to NOT be ‘cutting edge’ or be some ‘crazy marketing ninja’ with how I presented. I left that for the other guys, because I knew that’s how some of them were going to be on stage.

I was much the same way in my breakout room (which is a room after the event where people could ask you questions on a more intimate level etc.), I made it a really laid back question-and-answer session and I think people respected the non-salespitch atmosphere. One of the other speakers was also in my room and I am currently in ‘cahoots’ with them in planning some of their online marketing awesomeness.

Oh, and maybe here’s something you guys can learn from this (before I forget).. I made a TON of very lucrative connections at this event with attendees and the other speakers, and it’s not because I was pretending to be someone else. It worked so well because I KNOW who I attract, and I know HOW to attract them. And I did it by just being myself. Go figure. Take that to heart, and take that to the bank ;)..

So, in conclusion.. Mission accomplished.

I delivered my content based on who I am and successfully delivered ‘who I am’ to everyone there. Now they know. I’m just waiting for the “official” pictures and videos to be available so you can see what went down.

I had a fantastic time, Ray and Ferny put on a great event. Awesome.

Believe me, events like this can, no,  WILL change your life. So… are you going to be there next year??

Have a great day.
