There seem to be a large number of people jumping on the Mobile Bandwagon...signing up as reseller of a reseller who sold a WSO or whatever and running out to sell mobile without having any idea what they are doing...and it is evident in the questions that are being asked.
Don't get me wrong, asking questions is good, but...
The problem, as I see it, is as follows:
"We are supposed to be experts in our field. I can run out and Buy a stethoscope and a lab jacket but that doesn't mean the public is going to pay me to perform life saving...or threatening surgery.
Having access to a Mobile Platform does NOT make us experts.
We are essentially, holding the life of these Small Businesses in our hand. If we dont know what we are doing, we can do more damage than good. Not only to our Clients but to the Industry as a whole."
Buying access to a Mobile Resellers Platform is all find and dandy, but don't go off half cocked before you have been educated and trained to properly sell the product.
Too many of these Mobile Marketing Companies are too quick to sell access to their platform to anyone with the spare cash to pay for it and they are doing nothing more than hurting small businesses and the industry on the whole as a result.
I am all for self employment and the freedom it can bring, but one needs to crawl, then walk, and THEN Run. Without proper training you are simply going to do more damage than good.
Whats your take?
