Are You Willing To Think Outside the Box and Make More Money?

15 replies
Hi,

I have been reading threads contributed by Warriors who are making
money. One thing that strike me most is they are willing to think out
of the box.


I know taking action is important...but if it leads to nowhere, with no
structured, proven and planned strategy, the time and effort invested
can be quite pointless.

The marketers who are successful do extensive reading and spend more time thinking and analysing....

I feel the thinking process can be structured in this manner (and if you
find thinking out of the box is hard, this post may help you.)

1. find a success story (there are plenty in the Warrior forum)

2. ask yourself what this marketer is doing right

3. ask what did the marketer do specifically to convince the buyer pay for the product

4. name one way you can further improve this method (this will be a test of how much you know or how extensive you read)

5. where else can you share/ discuss your idea so that it evolves (do you have a group of like-minded friends who can bring your idea to a greater height? And you grow in the process)

Personally, I do most of my time thinking and reading and talking with my mastermind group.

To be able to learn more and improvise on the methods, what you need
to do is to invest in your own learning, have an open mindset to learn more
and share what you know.

I think it is a personal choice, we can be any other marketer or someone
who has a unique marketing strategy that can continuously deliver.

It is a personal choice - and the choice is to think out of the box and invest in your own learning.

My 2 cents,
John

    I've never been in the box. Looks to confining to me.

      Hi Kevin, yes and that is why you are so successful... =)

      How do you plan your marketing strategy before you launch a successful product? =)

        LOL. There's no formula. I get ideas from news items, people walking down the street, a ride on a train (all those ads), a movie ......

    Where is this box everybody keeps talking about?

    To think "outside the box" you first have to be thinking inside it.

    I suppose what all you young whippersnappers are talking about is 'using your imagination'?

    You might not like what I say - but I believe it.

    Some old school smarts would help - and here's to Rob Toth for his help. Bloody good stuff, even the freebies!

      Hi Arthur,

      That is another way of saying it. I think whatever it is, it is about using our imagination so we can be creative in our ways of marketing.

      Of course, life experience plays a big part in this too. =)

      Cheers,
      John

      Whether thinking inside or outside the box is not critical as the overall concept of doing something is important. This is what I feel personally.

      To do sales, one has to have a concept of what you need before a sale is confirmed. Basically, I will study about the product itself and knowing it very well. Then I will create my concept how to sell this product. Example like explaining the benefits it can provide to resolve issues. There are alot of ways you can improvise to give solution to problems.

      We used to do alot of brainstorming whenever we encounter an issue that cannot seem to resolve. It is like thinking out of the box to find an idea or concept. More heads are easier to gather the right solution and normally it is true. We always manage to find solution after a few sessions of brainstorming. Curiousity does help to clear alot of problems in life.

    Well said...like for some, they are not restricted by any box...while others
    have not found their boxes...or some could have interpreted a box with an opening, allowing us to enter or get out any time we want...lol :p

      Hey John,

      In my opinion, the restictive school curriculum kills 'free imaginative thought'...

      Think about it, in grade 1, you start off with a box of 24 multi-coloured crayola wax crayons and are encouraged to use the whole page.....

      By the time you graduate, you're down to using a blue pen and have to write between the lines......go figure...

      Go on, go out right now and buy yourself a box of crayola crayons and put it on your desk as a reminder!

      Regards

      Greg

        Hi Greg,

        Yah...school curriculum limits what we have to study...in my opinion, it is like the textbook contains "all" that we have to learn.

        And in Singapore, I think most students only study those topics that are tested.... lol and stop learning after the tests or exams.

        All through school, I amused myself by sketching cartoons in the margins of my note books. No matter how many times I was reprimanded and sent to sit in the hall, I never let the *******s grind me down. Give me fingerpaints.

          That explain a lot kevin...lol

          I've just had a thought, maybe the restrictive learning systems is why we see so much graffitti in public places....they didn't allow people to express them selves in school.....

          Says a lot for not sitting in rows, towing the party line, writing in rows and columns etc.....

          HHHmmmmmmmmmmmmm.............

          Regards

          Greg

    In my opinion,

    There's nothing wrong with being in the box - as long as you get in there before everybody else!

    I think you have to have a good understanding of the general aspects of IM before you can really use your imagination.

    What is a good idea without being able to generate the traffic to sell it to people? Once you grasp all the basics - you can really start to act on your ideas with confidence.

    Just my thoughts anyway....

    I like this thread. But what is the faith of the individual who thinks out of the box, and act of course but the result isn't coming. I have been wondering if there is something different some IMers do to get continuous result...Personally i have been struggling to earn continuous like some we say that they earn atleast $100 daily.
    I make money doing affiliate marketing, but i need a way to earn cash on daily bases...Thinking out of the box?
