Why am I in this business?
Why do I pursue Internet marketing through the framework of an online information business?
Good question… and here’s why, with an explanation (of sorts) about my approach towards this business; a ramble through a few thoughts and ideas.
When I know how to do something, I get a sense of pride from showing other people how to do it too, and the online platform is an ideal outlet for exactly that process.
It started from the day job I used to have. When I became accomplished at a task, the chances are that someone else would also have to be able to do it and I would take a pride in showing them how to do it too.
There’s a definite psychology to this and I firmly believe that this is exactly the kind of thing that gives someone a sense of worth. It is about using social awareness to show, not tell, other people how to become accomplished.
The passing on of my/your knowledge to someone else and seeing them become successful at that task too… because of something I have taught them, gives a sense of positive feeling quite like no other.
Sure, there are other things in life that give me a good feeling too, and for me it’s the noise of a race engines – I mean real mechanical race engines, not the “Eco” computer-controlled “power units” that purport to be something they’re not.
I’m also digging into a bit of membership site development today; something I’ve done very little of to be honest. But I want to add another angle to my business to see how it goes. To be fair I have been having a couple of conversations with a good friend of mine – more about her later – who suggested I create one. The interface/site is a bit basic at the moment, but will develop as the days go by; Rome wasn’t built in 5 minutes apparently….
For now, having wasted a good portion of time (or at least too much time) trying to de-bug a technicality on my own, I am going to get on with some work I started a couple of days ago on a new product. Actually I’m working on three new products; a membership site, and a 12 week coaching program, and consulting program. I will let you know how they go.
