Don’t be a prisoner to your need to “get people.” And don’t let others be a prisoner either.
This was going to be just a note, but it felt strong enough to speak it directly to you.
Those who use Attraction Marketing to build any kind of business totally have it right. Instead of pushing people toward what you want them to buy or join, make it something they WANT to do. Make it so that the ones who are going in your direction are doing so of their own free will.
In other words, it’s important they aren’t a PRISONER to your marketing thread.
If you have people in your web of advertising and promotion who rely on you for their well being, you’re going to have to constantly keep feeding them whatever it was that got them there in the first place.
That’s important if you’re building a network marketing or affiliate marketing organization. You WANT strong, independent people. It’s how you grow. And it’s how you get free.
You don’t want to go away, or turn your attention elsewhere and find they have moved on to the next person who entices them with technique.
And let’s take it a step further. If you’re in a romantic relationship with someone who is there because they feel dependent on you, both of you are a prisoner in that relationship.
And no, I’m not saying it isn’t good to feel the need of the other. Or to feel needed.
But the goal always has to be helping (or loving) that person into their strongest, happiest, best self.
Otherwise you’ve created not only a prisoner, but a depressed, fearful, eventually resentful one.
Let’s keep this simple.
Appeal to the best and brightest instincts in others.
And yes, you can use triggers and techniques that inspire them to act right away.
But see them at their most beautiful. Not at their most needy.
You’ll be glad you did.
