U Gonna Live Or U Gonna Die? - Online and Info Product Marketing

U Gonna Live Or U Gonna Die?

Who survives in business?  Who lives? Who thrives? And who dies?

I ask you that.

Darwin answered the question.

-- Not the fastest.

-- Not the smartest.

-- Not the strongest.

Darwin said the species that survives is the one most able to ADAPT!

So every morning when you wake up, life stares you smack dab in the face.

And it says, "Today -- You gonna live or you gonna die?"

And what that means is -- Are you gonna do the same things you've been doing that have NOT been working?

Are you gonna adapt?

Are you gonna change?

Or are you gonna die?

Why do I say die? Is that overly dramatic? I don't think so.
Here's why:

Every day, if you don't adapt, you are one step closer to non-survival in business.

You adapt. Or you don't survive.

So what's it gonna be?

You gonna change? You gonna adapt? Or you gonna die?

How does this apply to you and business?

There are 3 things you need:

I can't tell you what these 3 illusive ingredients are in this environment. Or a hoard of good meaning competitors will
swoop in and do their best to steal the thunder.

But you either have those 3 illusive ingredients or you don't. My job here is to help you have them.

That's what I do. I help you change, grow, adapt and survive.

You need products that are well promoted. Let's start with that fundamental basis of all business.

I tell you you need your own products to promote. Others sell a promise of a short term utopia. Whose right? Whose wrong?

How's that short term utopia, easy, quick fix been working out for ya?

One thing is certain...since before the World Wide Web existed I've been selling and marketing online.

Do you recognize the truth? Do you hear it now? Can you feel it in your soul? The truth has a certain ring to it. A certain feeling. A certain clarity of mind. Crystallness of thought.

When you hear the truth, you know it. It feels right.

So just what is that truth?

When you wake up in the morning, you're either going to a place where you sell your brains and efforts for money. Or you sell products for money.

The simple truth is this business is about creating products of all sorts and selling them to people who benefit by them.

And at the end of the day, it ain't no more complicated than that. No more smoke. No more mirrors. All excuses laid bare. Go out there. Work your tail off to get somethin' to sell.

And today, and every day, sell it to someone. Not by your own efforts but by systems, web sites, email and processes.

I'll repeat that brilliant, sage, amazing phrase of my friend Stephen Pierce. I wish I said it. But I didn't. He did:

"Today is the brokest day of the rest of your life."

That is, if you have products that make you money instead of your won personal efforts. If you're tired, if you're downtrodden, if you're bored or discouraged with it all, look yourself in the mirror and in a truthful moment ask: What have I been trading for money?

How is that working out for me?

Will I keep doing it THAT way?

For how long?

And if I do, how is it that things are gonna be any different than they have been.

If what you've been doin' ain't been doin' so well, maybe it's time every day when you wake up, you look in the mirror and ask yourself this simple but haunting question:

Today, am I gonna adapt? Or am I gonna be 1 step closer to dying.

My name for those of you who are new is Marlon Sanders. I got started in this business before a lot of gurus were even born.

For longer than I remember, in this community, I've been doing one thing and one thing alone.

Telling the truth as I see it.

And being the evangelist of Internet marketing, sales and product creation and promotion.

Now go. Produce. Promote. Sell. Survive. Adapt.

    Mmm, I'm having the same problem as Sheila, with the sentences running across the page. But, the content of your post is right on the money! Preserverance really can outshine smarts sometimes. Sticking to something with a good attitude does wonders, for your bank account and for life in general! Keep the great tips coming!

  • Hi Marlon, Did you use something different to publish this post? For me, at the moment, it's in a different font than your normal one … and the longer sentences are running right across the sidebar and off the screen. Well, hey, you've always enjoyed being eccentric, right?



    [Sheila, if this keeps happening with posts let me know.  Could be your browser version??]

    Marlon, I remember when I was on your mailing list before I really had even heard of the term "internet marketing". I was around 14 years old – now I'm 21 – and it was at that point that I started looking at various opportunities to "make money in mail order" type programs. Anyway, I read one of your newsletters and thought you would be a good person to email back to ask for some advice. I was after some software for my grandad so he could make birth charts ( cant remember what they are called exactly ), to print and mail to people. The idea was he was going to advertise them in various "nu-age" type magazines. So I emailled you back asking if you knew of any such software we could buy which would help us do this. You very kindly e-mailled me a few links to a few software sites, these maye have been affiliate links – at the time I wouldn't have known the difference ! Anyways, I would just like to say thanks to you again for taking the time to get back to me. Seeing where you are at now and your products all over the web has made me think "Would a big named markateer these days take the time to do that" I certainly can't see "certain markateers" of this day and age bothering to reply. So once again, thanks and it is indeed a very small world ( even if it is internet based )

    Kind Regards, Brian

    [Brian, thanks for your post on mmy blog…and I hope you're finding success.  Appreciate the kind comments.]
