Is There Any Form of Marketing You Won't Do Because.... Well.. Umm... You're a Little Yella?
Here are various forms of marketing that we use in our business and the excuses I hear from people on why they don't do them:
Door Knocking: "I just don't have time.." "It hasn't proven to be that effective anyways." "I don't really feel like getting yelled and cussed at today." "I'm Yella!"
Cold Calling: "Nobody ever answers anyway." "Most people are on the Do not call list so whats the point!" "They will just hang up on me." and "I'm Yella!"
Just Talking to Random People: "They are going to think I am weird." "They don't really look like they are in the "talking mood", "I just don't feel like it right now", and "I'm Yella!"
Blogging: "I'm not a good writer." "I don't know what to write about." "I just don't have the time for this." and..."I'm Yella!"
Video Blogging: "I'm already not photogenic already, you put me in motion, on camera.. no thank you!" "The only good camera I have is the one on my phone." "I don't know what to talk about on camera!" and "I'm just plain Yella!"
Those are just a few methods of marketing. Of course we can literally come up with every excuse in the book to not do this form of marketing or that form of marketing, but is it really a legitimate reason for why you're not doing it? Most reasons are really just excuses and we don't do the these things because it's out of our comfort zone, and we are just yella!
One of the biggest things I have been fighting has been video blogging.. I finally got up the nerve to try it and I posted my first video blog on Activerain this week. Then I got brave enough to do another video blog..... I posted it...... Got a little a yella..... and deleted it.....All excuses aside... I was just yella! I am still nervous and scared to death of video blogging, one of the biggest things outside my comfort zone that I am trying to face, having a few panic attacks in the process, but mark my words you will see another video blog attempt on activerain by me this week sometimes! I am not someone that gives up and I will not let this thing defeat me, I will be posting another video blog on here in the next few days! NO EXCUSES!
What forms of marketing have you been avoiding, all excuses aside, just because your a yellow belly? What are you going to do to face that form of marketing head on? If I can come out of my comfort zone and video blog, you can take that leap out of your comfort zone to!!! So no excuses!!! JUST DO IT!!!
