My question to you is: Are You A Marketer or a Wantrepreneur?
I see so many people in various places who claim to be marketers, but really are wantrepreneurs.
What defines a marketer? In my mind, it is someone who creates phenomenal products which help people accomplish something. They create "funnels", which, yes, include upsells and downsells and other value adds
What defines a wantrepreneur? Someone who wants to be a marketer, wants to be rich, wants to have everything given to them wants, wants, wants...
Often the wantrepreneur complains about upsells, complains about dimesales, cannot wait a reasonable amount of time for a support ticket response, gets upset when they can't get a review copy etc.
I used to be a wantrepreneur. I could not understand why so many people were having the success I wanted, the success I deserved. It finally hit me one day last year, I was not thinking like a marketer, and I certainly was not acting like it.
I made a conscious and unconscious decision to change that and as soon as I did, I saw my results change dramatically. So I will ask you once again:
Are You A Marketer or a Wantrepreneur?
I know this may spark some heated debate, but I had to give my $.02.
