Are You Just Taking Up Market “Space”?


“We get paid for bringing value to the market place.” - Jim Rohn


There are so many great companies in the world that give exceptional value to its customers. It’s one thing to sell a product that everyone needs, can afford it, and will use it whenever they need or want to. Then you have companies and its representatives who will sell you a “pipedream and a prayer” if you let them. I decided a long time ago that I will only market goods and services that (1) makes sense for peope to have; (2) is affordable to for entire marketplace; (3) people would be able to use it wherever they are and how often they wanted; and (4), it would be something I feel good about and would market for FREE! Yes, you read the last part right. I would tell people about my businesses because it’s the right thing to do if I NEVER got paid for it! At the end of the day, I would be spiritually “paid” (blessed) for my efforts. I share LegalShield and AmeriDoc with people because they give North American affordable accesss to a broken justice and healthcare system. People are hurting in so many areas of life and providing them with a great way to protect their families and businesses is a joy to me.


I bring value to the marketplace everytime I SHARE (not SELL) the services I offer. Selling is a transfer of belief between a product and a consumer. Transfering belief doesn’t bring value to anyone. I can sell you a worn-out used tire, but if you drive down the street and it bursts after putting it on your car, you may have done unneccessary damage. There’s nothing valuable about a busted tire and a damaged vehicle! I get paid very well for sharing legal and telemedicine services with individuals, but do much better when I share with small business owners, HR executives, and their employees. I choose to work more with employee group benefits and small business owners because I can bring so much more value to a company who’s worried about keeping its doors open every day and protecting their most important assets (their employees) than selling them lotions, potions, and the other stuff you can buy online, Costco, Wal-mart, and other places. If you want to be in business for the long haul, find a product or service you will be proud to stand behind. If you have to question if what you are selling is or isn’t right for you, chances are, it isn’t right for your prospects. Become the “go to person” in your town who is the “expert” in what you do. Where I live, I have virtually NO COMPETITION marketing LegalShield or AmeriDoc, unless they are on my team of course. Even then, I still get paid from earning overrides and residuals because I took time to build a large team. Take time to see where you can bring value to the marketplace and don’t waste your time taking up market ”space” with useless products and services.

    You speak straight up and this is what I like. I am a direct person and I expect people to be the same way. Humility is the key to being successful in relationships, and this is the way Jesus was. I admit sometimes this is hard for me and something I have worked on very hard, because if I didn't I wouldn't be experiencing the success I have so far. I expect things to get even better as I become a humble person like Jesus. He set the perfect example of humility. I got the best role model there is, and who do you think he followed--God! I have shared your post G.L. Thank you for being a part of the Syndication Express community. I look forward to reading your next post, I'm sure it will be very good.
