Think & Act Like a Boss!

Goes without saying; the threads topping the main forum lately are testing the patience of qualified marketers and business owners that offer tons of info to those who ask the right questions...

Think Like a Boss!

Ok first off, I am not a millionare... So if that is a requirement... Move along!

On a serious note, marketing is a series of skills (not one skill) that centers on one thing...

Delivering solutions!

If you come here crying how bad you need money... You are NOT delivering anything...in fact, you're selling yourself out and painting a 'bullseye' on your own head!

Whether your thread gets flamed or nuked, it should be obvious reading through the top threads... Not many marketers are going to deliver your solution.

Why?

Because YOU are in yhe company of some of the most talented marketers and business owners online, and to ask for the solution requires one thing... Respect!

Obviously, if you can't afford to buy the solution, at least have the human decency to ask questions respectful to the fact, any answer worth the salt,is being sold to millions who are willing to buy a solution.

Problem Solving

What do you buy to solve everyday problems?

Toilet paper?
New underwear?
Viagra?
Tools?
Jewelry?
Coffee?
Car parts?
Drug treatment?
Lawyers?
Deodorant?
Fireworks?
Pets?

Ok, don't ask... But somebody somewhere is buying this crap to solve a problem!!!

Point being, if you can't think of nothing to market... Look at what you throw away, and replace regularly.

Think... Forget PASSION!!!

Billion dollar companies sell solutions!

Could be foot fungus cream for all I care... You don't need to be starting a blog about a foot fetish to market; "Fast Acting Tenactin!"

You don't need to "troll" the threads for days to "see" damn near anything you can imagine can be bought online!

If you can't think of a niche, it's because your thinking about the paycheck, not the solution.

If you want to make money online...

Stop. Think. Research. Plan. Build. Fail? Build it better!... But, always study what is working?

Who's making money?

Not you?

Fine, here's a hint...

Study the traffic. Study sites that get tons of traffic. Read their content.

What are they making money from?

Ppc?
Lead generation, list building?
Social media?
Blogs?
Namebrand Companies?

Almost every successful website possesses some form of solution. Could be a service, physical product, a digital product, training, or a mixture of those, right?

Where's the Money?

EVERYWHERE!!!

But, the only way to get it is to think & act like a "Solutions Provider!"

Buyers don't give a damn about your passion!

Buyers damn sure don't care about your money problems!

Buyers pay for the Solution!

Again, I don't care if it's "Boo Berry Cereal" and kids are overdosing on the sugar content... Somewhere right now, some Mom is dealing with a kid who wants that friggin' cereal, or he's throwing down a tantrem!

Same goes with jewelry, pet stuff, and new undies... Just ask my wife!

God knows I'd rather buy tools, Viagra, or some Boo Berry cereal!

In conclusion, all these idiots ssking "How do I make money?"

Obviously, you are too consumed being a consumer to see the big picture!

There's money everywhere. Hell, I feel guilty NOT being a millionaire already, cause I see it. The internet is a massive opportunity!

Shit, sell what you buy!

If you think of the last 20 purchases you've made at any store (Not WSO's or Shiny objects)... I'd bet over half (if not higher) offer an affiliate program, CPA offer, or PPL... That you could promote!

Think...

What car insurance do you have?

What domain registar do you buy from?

How did get on the Warrior Forum?

You need money....no shit?

I thought people just signed up here, and BOOM... BOOM... BOOM! - Everyone was getting rich... NOT!

If you can do something based around your passion, wonderful, start there!

But, if you can't think of a niche?

Sell Herpe soar solutions!
Foot fungus recipes!
Pet supplies!

Cause, these thteads lately... Got me thinking; Prozac time!

Whatever you take away from this, YOU need to "Think, Act ( as in action - not pretend), and Deliver Solutions!"

As far as the marketing strategies & methods to actuall sell or promote sumfin...

Everything You Need Can Be Found Here on Warrio Forum! (...and then some!)

So... Either; Think Like a BOSS!" - or- Go Get a JOB!"

Works the same way offline too!

    Well said man. I think you hit right on the nose what it is to make money vs start a business. They can be one in the same, sure. But they don't necessarily go hand in hand and if the goal is to make money then do what works and you can find out what that is if you just look at exactly everything you said up there... I dig it.

    Good post man. I agree, you just have to find a problem and sell the solution. It gets no simpler than that bud. Thx for the reminder.

    Art all the respect man but you know like all the others who have written adnauseum that like all the others will sink off into page 2/3/4/5/6/7 and none of the newbies will take action.

    Mindset needs to change to doing it first then asking questions, that way they have tried but just need that little bit of a guide or push to make it happen,

    You're right. I like your writing style. It's effective.

    It's just like Jack Gordon said in another thread:

    The formula doesn't change. Find an unmet need in the marketplace, and deliver a solid solution to your best prospects.

    Great post. Have a look at Peter Sage on youtube with London Real. He talks alot about mind set and the 'to me' victim mentality versus the 'through me' flowing with life with full self responsibility.

    Good content.

    One variable you mustn't neglect, is if you have constant and economical access to your demographic.

    Without that, everything is for naught.

    (Find out which demographics you can easily tap into, and THEN figure out what you can provide, is often a noteworthy hack).



    Brilliant motivation nevertheless.

    You nailed it on the head...

    be a SOLUTIONS PROVIDER

    This surely involves TECHNICAL information

    But it also involves EMOTIONAL GUIDANCE

    Remember... if you only needed to dish out TECHNICAL INFO to make money, then most people would be making money in the IM space.

    WE all know it doesn't work that way...

    Don't neglect the emotional aspect

    This is where PERSONAL BRANDING COMES IN

    Understand this and you'll understand why some products SOAR while others gather digital dust.

    Understand this and you'll understand why some Kindle books fly off the virtual shelf while others remain unread..... since FOREVER.

    Ironic that I see your thread art, when I was contemplating a similar one of my own, albeit not such a long one.

    ATTENTION NEWBIES!
    There's an amazing amount of information in this thread, and the original poster of this thread is certainly a good example.

    Sure, you may want or need help.
    However, think before you type. Do you know what you questions to ask?
    Don't type crappy posts like the following (paraphrased of course.

    ** How can I make money online?
    ** How can I make a million dollars?
    ** I want to make great money but I don't want to work for it. What do I do?
    ** The questions that get asked a thousand times (and there are tons of them).

    As a newbie, you may not know much BUT think smart. Google your questions to see what answers you find. Google is your new best friend.

    Show respect for other members here, even if you don't like their answers.
    It's better to get good information instead of being told "it's easy to make money...."and so on.

    I remember when I started 6 years ago, I knew how to write but had no idea how to make money from it. Then I found a few useful sites and forums, including this one.

    Treat people the way you expect to be treated and you can't go wrong.

    Don't try to make money! Many people get this wrong when starting out. Maybe you do want money but that shouldn't be your focus.

    How can you help people? What's your niche and how can you use that to good advantage to help others?

    Zig Ziglar said it best. Help enough other people achieve their goals and dreams and you'll have plenty of money and time to achieve your own goals and dreams.

    Well said mate. Very inspirational and emotion driven. Another thing is been confidence in yourself, focus driven coupled with determination to succeed.

    Newbies...

    No one is coming to save you.

    You are 100% in charge of your own fate and results.

    There aren't any miraculous "secrets" people are holding back from you...and there isn't one surefire path to success.

    You have to figure it out for yourself.

    I can give you--and have--the principles of success, but you'll probably ignore them. You'll step over the OP's advice on your search for "what's hot"..."what's working now"..."how can I make money today."

    And that's why you don't make money.

    If you don't feel like a boss, ask yourself this question:

    "If I had a boss, what would she or he direct me to do right now?"

    In the movie Heist, Gene Hackman's character has something very similar to say in response to a question about his ability:

    D.A. Freccia: You're a pretty smart fella.
    Joe Moore: Ah, not that smart.
    D.A. Freccia: [If] you're not that smart, how'd you figure it out?
    Joe Moore: I tried to imagine a fella smarter than myself. Then I tried to think, "what would he do?"

    (thanks, imdb)

    If you don't have the self-concept of yourself as a boss, I'll tell you right now it's going to be tough for you to succeed. Online marketing is like any other business, and a "tell me what to do and I'll do it" mentality is not a winning one.

      If you don't want to take Art's word for it, get yourself a copy of Malcolm Gladwell's "The Millionaire Next Door" and keep a running list of the businesses these people are making quiet millions at.

      No, I'm not going to list them here. Get the book and do your homework.

    Think & Act Like a Boss!
    Most people have no concept of what this even means. They have been conditioned their entire lives to be "drones."

    That's why so many fail. They need someone to tell them what to do and keep them on track. They have no "boss-like" qualities.

    You either have it, or you don't.
