“I’m a marketer!” or “I am a Marketer”

Monday, November 24th, 2008

“I’m a marketer!”

“My specialty is attracting new customers … persuading existing customers to make ever-larger purchases … convincing them to buy more often … and making sure they keep buying from me forever.”

This was a part of explaination that Clayton Makepeace recently posted in his newsletter and has really made rethink about the fact that he mention’s some very juicy details and more on it shortly.

As for right now it had me really thinking over the course of the weekend, even though when your in business you are always a marketer but more into when you are a business owner you want to be sure you know what you really want from your business and also what your job really is.

Take care of yourself,

The Escape Of Business Owners Loosing Control

The Escape Of Business Owners Loosing Control

As a business owner you are faced with making sure you business is taking daily action to meet your business goals, whether that may simply mean increasing your business profits or if it means cutting costs for your business. Even though that this may come with a price tag, you must manage your company and try to prepare as best as you can your company plans.

We must escape the devastation that is taking place in the market place right now and we must also try our best to take care of our customers, employees, business partners,vendors and the list goes on. In business it’s all about keeping a balance between everyone and keeping your relationships strong, it seems like it is the only way a business can really stay a float anyways.

Also it seems that you must take care of all of your leadership roles and as well as the tasks that face the your business growth, you can always place yourself in the shoes of someone else but it doesn’t always mean that you will fully understand, so you must get out there and ask questions.

As of right now in writing this peace we see a lot of things taking place in the world, we are seeing banks closing, company owners looking for the back door to espape because they are loosing control of their businesses and as well as the growing growth gaps and main life’s blood of a business which is profits. We have seen a lot of greed and poor management and the use of money to invest in things that we believe will help give us the everlasting edge against our growing concerns of competition and the emotions of everyone looking for growth and change but never takes action.

Do not sit there and say you want something to happen, but you never take any kind of action, list the more that you feel you would like to be perfect the more you will realize that you will never make because you are just writing ideas down but are not Testing those ideas out or doing any kind of research.

Get Up and Taking Action Today and every day will allow you to fully be able to look back and be able to say, Yes, I did take action and I may have failed or succeed but the feelings that you will that you did something rather then saying you did nothing will always be better then nothing.

Look to improve yourself, your relationships and look to enjoy eveerything you have right now today, right at this moment, becuse everyday we are seeing the escape of business owners loosing control of everything they ever had and a lot of others loosing their shirts in there businesses.

Remove yourself for a few moments each day for brainstorming and testing everything that you feel that is not working and take action on those ideas, through the use of testing and using all of the different advertising channels to Awake the Sleeping Giant of Action that await’s you in the short-term and as well as the long-term.

All the best,

Mr. Julio Mattos

Useful Quotes

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know need to change something… almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure– these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.
