In this industry, you need people to succeed. Once you run out of your warm market i.e family and friends you will need to extend your products/services & opportunities to the cold market-strangers.
It can be quite tiresome trying to convince or persuade a novice to join my business. I have to start at the very beginning, and after explaining they either don’t get it or have to ask permission from their decision maker. This industry is not for those who need to ‘think about it.’
When it comes to the cold market , as I have said before, there are many methods including approaching strangers in the street. However these methods can deflate ones enthusiasm with repeated knock backs and and refusals. In as much as one needs to be confident and be prepared, as human beings we all have feelings and rejection can be hard to take.
I have learnt that there are already people out there who are looking to become part of this industry or are already here looking for other Opportunities to take up. Therefore, it is better to look for people who are looking for you.
The world stage is the Internet. I am amazed at the number of opportunities that around at this time. Though I am not a part of them, I have been tempted to join a few that seem promising. I can see the power of advertising to like minds.
One of the opportunities I am involved in, http://Touch.STIFORPMovie.com is currently going out to thousands via the net through text, solo and banner advertising. Take a look and see.
To our success…….
