If you’re part of our private Facebook group, over the last few days you’d have seen a few posts popping up from people filled with absolute crap.
I see them, think to myself what a twat the person is, delete the post and block the user.
Here’s the thing…
It’s not really their fault.
These people think they’re going to get commissions from the products they’re promoting. They think that they just need to paste the pre-written text from an affiliate page, into as many places as they can, with their link, and the money will come rolling in.
And they think that because…
Someone told them.
The sad thing is, they’re about as wrong as they can be.
Spamming can be very tempting because of the large numbers.
You think to yourself… “It’s a numbers game. If I spam 100,000 people and just 1% clicks, that’s 1000 clicks.”
Problem is, that’s not how it works.
Marketing is all about relationships.
Spamming is all about not giving a f**k about anybody.
Spammers don’t get 1% clicks, hell they’d consider themselves lucky to get 0.1% clicks. When you combine that with the lack of relationship, the conversion rate to sale is incredibly low. Which means you literally need tens of thousands of clicks to make even a single sale.
The bottom line is, it’s waaaaaaaay easier to make money by doing it properly. By building a relationship with your audience.
Which is what making money online is all about.
“To make money online, you need to build a relationship with your audience, be honest with them and tell them your story.”
It’s no more complicated than that.
P.S. Chris Payne spent a couple of days staying with me, and Business Ignition members have some things to be very excited about. I’m putting it together at the moment, and will let you know more in a couple of weeks.
