Something New That Wasn't So New

I love when I come across something that I learned awhile ago but didn't take the time to really appreciate the value. Today is one of those days when it comes to appreciate the value of attraction marketing...doing business with people instead of products/companies.

I mean how many times have we said we will never go back to a place again because the service was soooo bad OR the exact make an effort to return someplace because the service is spectacular.

Well....doing business on the internet is no different than doing business in real non-internet life. The probability of purchase is enhanced by the perceived by the integrity, credibility and trustworthiness being offered by the "salesperson/consultant etc. It all comes down to people. The product value is secondary.

And this is why so many people fail in one of my favorite industries...the network marketing industry. I mean who would you rather be doing business with...Donald Trump or Donald Duck? What if even Donald Duck was selling gold and you did not know what Donald Trump was selling. Odds are you would choose THE DONALD...not THE DUCK!

I am learning this again and this time I am listening...

Happy Trails
