The first hurdle I had before I could even work for myself and consider myself as a “boss” was…
Can I sell something?
Selling to me was associated to being a car salesman… to PUSH a sale… to always be Closing a Deal.
But also thinking..
WHY would someone buy something from me…
You are now ready to have a total shift in thinking.
This shift in thinking will help you reach out to more people, have more people come to you, help you to set up a way of having people buy from you even while you are not working, and help you think bigger (scale up).
I can’t promise that you will become a millionaire overnight, or even at all, but what I can promise you is that you will never see online selling and marketing the same way again…
Being A Solutions Provider
Let’s continue with the concept we learned in Video 5, which was to solve problems versus just selling to people.
For example… Amazon sells a lot of products and they pay you up to 6% commission when you make the sale happen through your Affiliate link as an Amazon Associate. BUT, Amazon handles the storage, the shipping, the customer service, the returns and the credit card transactions.
You don’t touch any of that. Instead, you provide information to potential customers. I, personally, use a blog to do it.
You can set up a blog that has articles about best selling Amazon products. You can write reviews or explain how a certain product can solve a problem. You offer choices, with links back to Amazon. Each link is coded to an account, so that if someone buys a TV through your blog, you would earn a commission. A lot of people earn 5 figures just by selling Amazon products.
Notice, you don’t force the customer to buy. You provide them with some options for their particular need and they picked which option was best for them. They could have chosen to search through hundreds of options, but YOU made it easy for them. You gave them information. You narrowed down their options. They made the decision to buy, based on the information that You researched and provided for them. You just helped them buy a quality product AND you saved them a lot of time.
Basically, you are finding a solution to a problem and you are putting the information out there for people to find.
You can do this in many ways – blogs, social media, podcasts, videos, pdf’s, ebooks, email lists, article directories, photos, and more.
If they see you enough times, they may buy from you – without you doing anything extra.
