I recently listened to a speech given by former President Clinton in which he discussed one way of responding to improve the state of the economy. To paraphrase what he said: we have to focus on cooperation, not on conflict. Currently, the focus of our politicians is on what has worked for them in the past - conflict, not on what will work for our economy - cooperation. He went on to state that there are lots of places in our country where there is low unemployment, where housing prices are stable, where there is a high rate of growth, and where there is a shortage of skilled workers. What makes these places unique is that they have formed networks of cooperation.
How does this apply to us as Internet Marketers? We may all be more effective in our marketing efforts if we focus on cooperation among ourselves and look at providing resources that will help to improve the lives of our clients and improve the state of the economy.
