Don't Just Sit There!... Do Something!
Rather than wait for an "upturn" in the Internet (and/or general) economy...
Why don't we just work together to create one?! :)
If you don't believe that this is possible...
Then please allow me to share with you a recent and ongoing "story" / "case study" where and how this is happening right now! :) (If on a relatively moderate but significant and growing scale)
A quite renowned Internet Marketer...
(whom shall remain "nameless? herein)
... extended a very unique and attractive offer.
Those that could perceive the great value of this offer began "scooping it up", even though it was being sold at a non-trivial price.
And even before receiving the products they purchased... They were offered a very attractive opportunity to become an Affiliate and market this offer to others.
So, many of those that purchased this offer began marketing and advertising this offer themselves to others, thereby stimulated additional expenditures in online and offline marketing and advertising, which we have all been saying has been kind of "slow" recently, right?
Further, since of these purchasers needed to customize, install and host these products, and they themselves are primarily non-technical, they are engaging the services of consultants,
developers, web masters and web hosters, etc. to help them.
And when these IT firms / professionals have more paying clients, they in term have to engage more developers, testers, etc. and buy more software, hardware and other services, thereby stimulating more economic activity, in otherwise "slumping" IT and computer markets :), right?
And, this Internet Marketer established a community forum for anyone who purchased this offer to share their ideas about promoting it, implementing it, how to use and sell products based on it, etc. The synergy between the members of this community is further generating opportunities for partnerships, joint ventures, and members buying, selling and providing products and services to one another.
Finally, as the purchasers of this offer develop and market their customized products and services based on those they originally purchased, there is the opportunity for similar cycles of economic activity to begin again! :)
And as people have more paying business, they become more willing to buy other products and services, thereby stimulating more economic activity "downstream"... and so on... and so on... Right?! :)
Already, IMHO, the amount of economic activity stimulated by this relatively small group of people, has been quite impressive! :)
And it all started by someone extending an offer wherein the value of the opportunity for economic benefit far outweighed the cost of it!
What is the moral (point) of this (real life) story?...
Rather than sitting around and waiting for an "upturn" in the Internet (and/or general) economy... Why don't we work together to create (another) one?! :)
Where and how would you all like to start creating our own Internet / economic upturn?!
Hope this helps,
