If you want to ask good questions, and make a professional income, try having a rampage!
So I’m thinking about all of the Facebook posts that have questions.
Of course their job is to get people to answer them. Answers equal engagement.
Engagement equals more eyeballs and possibly more sales or more sign-ups.
So you see some of the craziest questions.
I breeze past 90% of them. I don’t like other people filling up my time with stuff that doesn’t keep me on the path to my goals.
And the ones I do answer are thought-provoking, and occasionally really fun.
But I won’t answer, ” peanut butter and jelly sandwiches…crust or no crust?”
Sometimes I play the game.
Sometimes I ask questions on my wall.
The most common one is the “rampage of appreciation.”
In other words, who deserves a shout out?
Who deserves to be recognized for doing something really good, or being someone really good?
That is always a winner.
That’s something that points away from you.
That something that makes people feel safe, and strong and inspired…even if it isn’t about them.
It also gives people the opportunity to get out of their own heads.
And really, everything you want to do in marketing is about them, not you.
Getting inside the hopes and dreams and fears and desires of other people will improve every aspect of your life.
And it will make people want to do the same for you.
Personally, I like chunky peanut butter and whole blackberries or raspberries on 12 grain bread, with the crusts.
But I’m not going to try and distract people’s attention from their dreams.
I’m going to lift them up, and help them get what they want.
If you do the same, see what happens to your personal and professional life!
Yes, I said professional life. If you act like and think like an amateur, how do you expect
to grow your business to a professional income?
If you act like a professional…with the occasional rampage to go along with it, you’ll score.
