This series of post has been sitting on my hard drive for far to long! The point is blogging is a habit and so is pushing the PUBLISH button. Anyway enough rambling time to get into……..
Some marketing lesson’s from the “Order of the Phoenix”
My main aim with this series is to convince you of the value that developing a new habit can have on your business, regardless of whether yours is a traditional bricks and mortar business or an online business.
By sharing with you the benefit’s I have gained from my new habit, my hope is that you will be inspired to create your own new habit.
This goes back to my school days, I was the type of student that gave teachers like Bob a good reason to go and start an internet business to get away from teaching LOL. My best subjects were the practical related one’s like; metalwork, woodwork and sports.
If the subject had anything to do with being creative or writing like Art or English,I just wasn’t interested. I never ever read books that were non fiction, I just didn’t see the point!! If the story wasn’t real then it didn’t mean anything to me.
My wife and kids had been Harry Potter fans since it’s first inception, and had been constantly nagging, oops sorry I mean trying to persuade me to read the books as well. Without much luck I might add!!
I am not sure exactly how long ago it was, it would be around 12 months ago at a guess. I was reading the “Four Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferris, something real and practical (I don’t read non fiction remember). Anyway in the “Four Hour Work Week” Tim talks about the benefits of reading science fiction (his habit), damn I thought I am going to have to admit defeat and read at least one of those Harry Potter books.
The reason Tim convinced me that I had to read non fiction was simply because, reading non fiction was a habit that he used to get a certain result.The old saying is very true “Success Always Leaves Clues”. If you find someone that is already achieving what you want to achieve, study what they are doing, form the same habits they are using, but and this is a big but, do it in your own unique way.
So by simply forming the habit of someone who was already successful, and applying it to my business this series has been the result. Reading isn’t the habit that we want to talk about for you though. The habit we want you to form starting today is creating information products. And the reason we want to do that is? That’s right…. It is a habit Bob has formed, and as I quoted earlier “Success Always Leaves Clue’s”.
Before I wrap up for today, I want you to take this one small practical step towards forming your new information creation habit. If you haven’t already make sure you sign up for the Internet Marketing Success Library, and start looking at the habit’s that Bob has such as creating information product’s.
That’s it for today, make sure you come back tomorrow as we are heading over to Hogwarts for a very important Market Research lesson from Fred and George Weasley.
Always remember if a boilermaker from the Sunshine Coast can create an information product.
So Can You!!!
