heeeyyy, whats up?
reckon you could gimme your take on this?
you know Ray Higdon? well, he is cool, we speak sometimes and he said summin the other day that got me thinking, because it kinda goes against what alot of the ‘experts’ told me in my early days online
‘convert your focus to creating new relationships versus just find more prospects’
im sure you have heard, its all about numbers, just get more leads, yah? i personally know people who have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on leads with no sales which suggests that ‘the numbers game’ is flawed. the hardest part in all of this is getting your leads to send you their money right?
so the ‘relationship part is pretty important, even more so now that leads are harder to come by (for most people)
so how dya create that relationship? well, i will come to my thoughts on it later…
i wanted to dig a little deeper into Ray’s status update, as it relates to other things that most people probably wont think about
in the hunt for leads, here is a trap people fall into, i did when i started too.
just do tons of articles
the more the better, use article spinners, take popular stuff from google and put it in your own words
who wants to read that rehashed, thrown together crap?
its the reader you are trying to please, not the search engines.
i would far rather spend a week researching and putting something together thats actually worthy of someone taking a little time out of their schedule to read it
same with videos right?
so, to create the relationship, you need engagement, yah? i have 3 things in my head when producing content
just because someone reads your article and doesnt buy, does that mean it was a waste of time? not if you have done one of the above, there is a good chance they will be thirsty for more
now, of course you need prospects, and lots of them, but if ya cant make them send ya money, then its kinda silly! driving traffic in the ‘hope’ that they will buy can be costly 🙂
the theory of
i dont like so much
as Ray says, build relationships, dont just drive traffic, thats probably why he makes a ton of money
whats your thoughts???
lots of love
