My goal and desire is to prod you Mr. and Mrs. Business Owner to get out there and start marketing your business. I’m on a quest to push you, to make you do something. Something more than you’ve done in the past.
If you truly believe in your product or service you should be shouting from the rooftops about how awesome you and your stuff is. Why aren’t you?
Don’t say you don’t have time… Many of you find time to watch 1, 2, 3 episodes of your favorite TV show on Netflix every night. You find time to go hunting.
Don’t say you don’t know how to… YouTube is a virtual college online. I guarantee you that whatever you don’t know how to do there is a video that will show you. There are people just like me out there creating blog posts, videos, podcasts every minute of the day to teach you how to do things.
Don’t say you don’t have the budget for it… What I’m doing right now costs me absolutely nothing except for time (see #1 above). You can create videos on your phone and upload to YouTube or Facebook.
Don’t say you’re too old to learn this technology stuff… You learned how to drive a car, you learned how to fix a washing machine, you learned how to cut hair. You’re never too old to learn something new.
If you’re serious about growing your business you NEED to quit making excuses. My family depends on my income. I push myself every day to learn new things, experiment with marketing techniques, push longer, push harder.
I believe God has given me a certain set of skills and abilities and I am not going to let them go to waste. I am not going to bury my talent in the ground like the man in Matthew 25:14-30.
So make a plan for your business marketing. One Facebook post per day. One video per week. Do something!
Proverbs 21:5 – The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
