Arrogance is a curse. Patience a virtue.
Do you want traffic, but don’t have the patience or time to
I’ve been doing (and teaching) traffic generation 7+ years
now, and I’m always amazed at how people with the least traffic are always least willing to listen to reason.
Worst part is…
They turn away the information they need most…and they don’t
even know they’re doing it!
Let me demonstrate…
A couple days ago, I was buying clothes at a department store.
The exit to the check-out queue was marked “no entry”. So I looked
for the entry sign and stood in line. 5 people were ahead of me.
After 10 minutes or so, I was at the front of the queue.
While waiting for a clerk to open up, two ladies walked in
through the exit. And were promptly told to go to the back of the line. One listened.
The second ignored.
The lady stood behind the customer closest to finishing and began
placing her things on the counter.
I knew what she was up to.
She thought by placing her pile of things on the counter, the
clerk would have no choice but to check her out next.
But what she didn’t count on is that i would stand up to the right of everyone else in
line–as soon as the clerk opened up, I walked over confidently to take my turn.
The clerk ignored the lady’s pile and checked my two items
When I turned to leave, I heard her mutter, “HOW RUDE!” as she left in a big huff–protesting by leaving her stuff on the counter.
See, arrogance and impatience go hand in hand.
Arrogant people think the rules everyone else follows are
stupid. “I am better, more deserving,” they think.
Sure, sometimes, if no one stands up to them, they win–but usually
Online marketers are usually on an endless quest for traffic,
because they think the same way:
“Paying for traffic
is for losers – I want good traffic for free”
sounds hard/is expensive–I’m going to find something better”
“This is not what I’m
looking for–I just want to rank high in search engines.”
But just like the department store, the internet has its own
systems and rules that defend people’s rights.
Following the rules is easy.
Patience is not.
Which is why many marketers will buy into the hype of a training
program that gives them traffic, easy AND for free.
…But the rule of the internet is: “Traffic is either easy or
it’s free. Never both.”
Or the hype of a training that’s “good” but costs nothing.
…But the rule is: “If someone knows something useful, they’re
going to charge good money for it.”
These are all attempts of the arrogant to “jump the queue”…because
they feel they’re superior, more special than everyone else.
But the difference is, if you follow the rules you ARE
You get to have your turn because it’s your RIGHT and you
The “clerks” of the internet–the Googles, the Bings, the
Facebooks–they’re gatekeepers who guard their traffic and make the rules about who
can have it and who can’t.
Those who are arrogant, they’ll have to keep playing sneaky
tricks, trying to take the rights of others–losing one round after the other with their temporary loopholes.
They’ll act like they’re better but they will never have
Every time they think they have traffic, their win will be
taken away from them. And they are damned to look for traffic forever.
But if you learn the rules and play by them, you’re guaranteed
to get your fair share of traffic.
What’s more, you’ll take it with confidence, because you DO deserve
