How to Outshine your Competitor

Bruce Wilkerson writes the following in his book: “The Dream Giver”

He defines what a “gimper” is, and how the definition of being a gimper changed his life;

“A  gimper is someone who always does a little more than what’s required or expected. In the furniture business, for example, gimping is putting the finishing touches on the upholstery, patiently applying the ornamental extras that are a mark of quality and value”.

 

So, the question I want to ask you today is, Are you a “gimper?” Do you do the bare minimum in your business, or do you consistently take time to go above and beyond the competition?

Here are some ways you can shine in your industry

Customer service:

always be there for your customers. Don’t make them wait for a response if they contact you. If you use voice-mail, be sure to answer all requests with 24 hours, always. Two hours is a better response rate. Ten minutes or less is ideal. Why is getting back to your customers so important? It shows them honor. And if you are on of the few businesses who takes response time seriously, you will be a gimper.

Another way you can be a gimper is to regularly: get feedback from your audience. Rather than running test after test and paying for market research, determine what your customer wants by simply asking. When you make use of polls and surveys, you keep your pulse on the desire of your customer so you can better serve them.

Few business owners rely primarily on public demand for forming their business strategy. When you do, you’ll be a gimper.

The Silent Skill of Discernment

Is the subconscious aware of what’s going on because of a continual flow of facts which are too numerous to consciously analyze….but subconsciously tallied, sifted, and assessed?

Or is there something more at work here? Is there some supernatural element of insight given by the “universe to all human beings?

Whether it comes about through mentally stored experience, peripheal awareness, or quick snippets of supernatural insight, all of us have experienced the phenomona of intution; it’s the dynamic whereby you know something, but you just don’t know how.

In decision making and strategizing, this is called “discernement”.

Discernment is a quality which is lacking in a lot of internet marketers. And that is sad, because there are so many marketers who know so much, but yet don’t understand how to apply what they know, in which situation. Maybe you “get” the fundamentals of web design, and best marketing practices. But maybe something in your gut is telling you, “do it this way…this time”. You see, that is something that all of the information in the world can’t give you. And that is what you need for your internet marketing business.

When I give people advice about their situation, I don’t just rattle off some pre-formatted script of directives. I don’t just use a spreadsheet of info and go with the highest batting average. That’s because, in internet marketing, there are far too many variables at stake to rely solely on data. Sometimes something just feels off with a certain strategy. Almost always, the client feels it too. That’s why they call a mentor for clarifiction.

If you do internet marketing consulting for your clients, you should exercise individual discernment with each case you take on. The truth is, with mentoring and consulting, there is no “one size fits all” approach.

If you are a mentor or a consultant, I would love to hear your thoughts on this. And if you are looking for a mentor to help you find your way in internet marketing, I invite you to contact me.

Together, we can find  a plan that’s right for your business.

Inside of every internet marketer is a desire to set the world on fire by being a trail-blazer and a game changer.  Internet marketing is the buzz word that screams, money, success, and power.

How to Make Money Online

Making money online doesn’t have to be difficult.

Hi. I’m Sue Melin, author of How to Sell Anything Online.
If you are struggling to make money online, you owe it to yourself to try my new tutorial. In it, I’ll show you the ins and outs of making money online. But first, I want to let you know that making money online is not some mysterious “formula” that you have to learn from an internet blackbelt. Internet marketing is just a term for making money off of the internet. It’s not rocket science, nor does it require a college degree. You just need to be shown how to do it, in logical order. Actually, I want you to think of internet marketing like you think of gardening. If you hate growing plants, it may because you think that it’s too hard. And if you love growing plants, it’s because… you know how! But whether you do or don’t know how, the rules of gardening always work. That is:Evolution of a young plant

“If You Give Your Plant the Right Soil, the Right Temperature, and the right sunlight, you can expect a perfect plant everytime”.

It doesn’t have to be hard, and it really isn’t, provided you understand the basics.

Well, in the same way,  did you know that just as plants have certain universal laws that govern their “how to” of growth, so does internet marketing. You just have to tend to your product in the proper manner. Once you learn some basics, and implement them in the proper order, you can expect to make money online.

So many people these days are looking to make money online, but they don’t know where to start or where to go to find the information they need.

How to Brighten Your Day

Every internet marketer knows that it can be a real drag getting things done. I’m going to show you a simple series of daily discipiplines I do to get the day rolling right.

Sit upright. Yup, you heard me right. Before I fall out of bed, I sit up in bed. Admit it, marketer; getting up in the morning can be hard, especially if your day is swirling before you. Product launches, blog posts, and new ebooks to write. Hey, whatever it is that you do on the internet, take a moment to think it out before your feet hit the floor.

Coffee (sorry, Mormons). If you can’t drink coffee (which I personally consider to be one of the five food groups), then drink something to clear your mind and get you going. An energy shake, just water, or something.

Write. Just write. What needs to get done today? I segment a piece of paper into six sections and as I’m reviewing my day, list my to do’s in each section.

Schedule.  Each “to do” gets a time.

Pray. Yes, it’s really true; without a spiritual program, I know I would never be number one on Google for a variety of search terms. And I unbashedly hasten to say, this only works if your spiritual program includes the right mentorjesus holding the world

Post. Get one post on your blog. after prayer and planning your day, that’s the most important thing you can do. Take a week getting it ready, if needed. If you will post one article per week, minimum, you will get more traffic and reader engagement than you could ever hope for.
