A few moments ago someone sent me an email with a content exchange.
Unfortunately, I previously emailed my advertising tariffs to the blogger. The blogger put me on a guest post a few days ago. My tariff page clearly states that I only offer premium posting services for guests. I also explicitly explain how to ONLY respond if you pay my prices because I send email types other than junk spam.
I labeled her email as spam and went on. She tried to sell meat to a vegetarian. I'm only interested in getting money for renting guest post space on my blog. I'm not interested in free content swaps. Many bloggers offer me a content swap. I am a professional blogger. I receive money for products and services provided.
The blogger tried to sell me something I wasn't interested in. Forget that she's wasting her time and my time. I clearly warned her not to do so unless she was willing to pay my prices so as NOT to reply with another email as I would flag her as spam and move on. She paid a high price because her email address now has a red flag against spam. Add enough of it and all of your emails will end up in spam. Good luck building a thriving business out of a spam folder. I dare you; try it 😉
Stop trying to force, manipulate, or force people who are 100% NOT interested in your offer. Instead, spend 100% of your time creating and connecting with people who are 100% fascinated by your offers. I spend all my time helping bloggers interested in my blogging tips. Makes sense. People buy my eBooks and courses because I spend my day with these people.
I sell meat to carnosaurs. I sell vegetarian food to vegetarians. I never try to convince, force, or manipulate a carnosaur to eat a vegetarian diet. I never try to force a vegetarian to eat steak. Makes no sense. Wasted my time. Also waste your time. Even worse? Using violence to participate in a completely untargeted campaign annoys most people and also causes more of your email to find spam folders.
Sometimes people write me social messages with a casual, easy conversation about life. Within 2 responses, these people are trying to convince me to join their network marketing opportunity. Once again; These people are trying to sell meat to a vegetarian. Do you think I would like to take part in your network marketing opportunity because I have nice weather? We only talked about the weather. How much qualification is that? How targeted is a marketing campaign? Do you see why this approach practically makes 100% no sense and leads to failure?
My friend and extremely successful online entrepreneur Alonzo Pichardo shows you how to develop clarity, attitude and self-confidence. He creates and publishes targeted content for his ideal follower and then lets the content do what it does. He creates generously and then lets business flow to him. Remember to set up a vegetarian restaurant, serve the most delicious vegetarian dishes, market in a very targeted niche, and then allow vegetarians to find you. It is smart, successful and abundant.
We talked about blogging and network marketing some time ago, and how you have to do both properly and patiently to experience the success of your online business. Listen:
Target. Create targeted content. Share in specific places where your followers, customers, and customers depend. Build friendships with successful bloggers in your niche. Be patient. Take posture. Stop spinning your wheels trying to sell to people who are not interested in your offer. Make yourself clear to improve your blog success.
