Michael Phelps and Information Marketing
What the HECK does Michael Phelps have to do with information marketing? I KNOW this is a BIT of a stretch, but here goes. Michael Phelps, until the day he quits swimming for good spends a LOT of time in the pool. Something like 5 hours or so. Yeah, that’s a LOT!
Whenever I do a seminar or bootcamp having to do with selling info products, people always seem PUT OUT over what I ask them to do when they leave. I tell them that to be successful they have to learn a SYSTEM. I give them that system.
Once they have the system, then they have to do the WORK! Work? Really? People actually have to working in the info products industry? Yeah, sorry to say the answer is YES.
I have been blogging like a freakin maniac for the past 6 weeks or so. Why? Because I’m committed (some say I should BE committed) to certain milestones I want to achieve in my business.
I want to get my Page Rank up to 5 by the end of the year. It’s currently at 4. I also want to DOMINATE my various keywords. That’s going pretty well for the last couple of months.
Why is that going well? Because, like Michael Phelps I’m busting my BUTT to make it happen. Isn’t it all peaches and cream in the info marketing business? Don’t you just set it up once, and then sit down on the beach with an umbrella drink in your hand?
NOT SO MUCH!
The so-called information marketing “gurus” will tell you that no work is involved to make the big bucks. At least not for THEM!! HA! Jokes on you. They don’t work. You pay them. They sit on the beach sipping pina coladas and create FAKE testimonials. Crazy, huh?
Back to Michael Phelps! I’d like to meet the guy. But, I know I probably won’t get a picture with him. I think he doesn’t ALLOW cameras near by any more after THAT happened!
If Phelps can get in the pool for 5 hours a day and work his BUNS off, then GLEECK or YOU can get to work for 5 hours making your info product business a hit.
This is WHY you need to choose a niche for something OTHER than the money. It has to turn you on enough that you’re willing to put in the time. GET IT? If so, you’re one of few!
So quit your whining about how much WORK has to be done to succeed in this business. It’s better than doing laps for 5 hours in a chlorine infused swimming pool! OR, for that matter, wearing a friggin suit when it’s 110 degrees out.
I think we info marketers actually get off pretty easy! NOW, shut up and get to work! ONLY if you want to succeed, though!
