Quick! Make Me A Millionaire
I was visiting a marketing forum the other day and someone made a comment that struck me as being true: The Internet has become a giant ?money grab? for some people. Meaning, there?s a lot of people online focused on only one thing ? ?how much money can I make??
There?s nothing wrong with having a goal to make money, but the problem is, that single-minded focus isn?t creating a lot of millionaires. Perception speaks volumes, and this person brought to everyone?s attention how people are beginning to think about others who promote products online.
What kind of message are you sending to prospective customers? Do you only care about ?making the sale??
Or, do you genuinely go about forming relationships first, and wait for the sales (if any) to come later?
Honestly, I think many of us have been guilty of trying to ?take the money and run?. This is probably why the majority of us haven?t made any real money online. We need to take a deep breath and stop for a moment.
How sincere are we in wanting to help people?
Give them something of value?
Make their lives better?
If the sincerity isn?t there, then we?re no better than a guy named Mike who has a web site devoted to one thing: Making him a millionaire. Mike makes no bones about the fact that he wants perfect strangers to give him money to achieve his dreams of prosperity. What is Mike giving folks in return? Nothing.
Don?t laugh. Maybe you?re coming across the same way. While Mike has collected a few dollars ? slightly over $100 ? fourteen thousand visitors have obviously not seen his blatant money grab as anything more than amusing. Meaning, they come out of curiosity, but don?t part with their hard earned cash.
If any of us are destined to become a millionaire, it?s not going to happen overnight. It?s not going to happen without a lot of work. But I?m sure you?ve heard this before. Keep in mind that people don?t owe you or me a darn thing.
I finally figured this out: If one truly wants to be wealthy, one must not think about the money. That?s right. Forget about how much money you could make. Only then can we get back to enjoying the online experience for what it is. A big community of people like us.
