My Online Marketing Mentor Jomar Hilario answered a question from a reader who is interested to put up an online store. She (the reader) wanted to invest on an online seminar for marketing investment but is hesitant because their business is not picking up. She was advised by some friends to lower costs to increase sales before spending money to sustain the business.
This is what he has to say:
Too bad they gave you the wrong advise. Why is it wrong?
Let's see. Einstein said " Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. "
So you go back to what you're doing expecting to do the same things or dream of new things from your limited experience and expect to win this time correct?
Let's see what Jim Rohn says: "If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn't need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around. "
So are you getting education before proceeding?
I saw your website, it's super obvious why you're not selling well.
It's not obvious what you're selling. I suggest you create a blog and sell from there. Create a facebook page and make your self popular there (notice I didn't say sell from facebook yet).
Of course if you want the full course, join the online mentoring club and watch yourself earn 10x more than before. :) Note that this is not workshop -with a venue, it's a 1 year commitment to help you create your online incomes via online tutorials that are simple to understand.
Extra note: In Cebu, I met a security guard (or was it a janitor) who in my eyes came into my workshop a success already. Why? He loaned P 200 from lots of people just to attend it. Now that's a winning attitude everybody should emulate.
My friends and I have started putting up an online store through Facebook and because of the networking power of the FB page we were able to reach out to more customers and increase sales.
My mentor, Jomar Hilario - an internet marketer (yes, he's Pinoy)-just created this fr-ee 200+ easy to read presentation -Facebook Marketing Secrets Tutorial exposing how big brands use Facebook to make more sales & get their message online.
Take a look here - it's a 5minute read at most and I'm sure you can quickly apply what he says in your marketing department.
P.S. Here's that link again. I'm sure you have 10minutes to check out what may potentially be a game changer in the way your company uses facebook.
