Why You Need Your Own Website

Written by Debra Gravelle

Every now and then, I get askedrepparttar same question over and over again from one of my new students. My not so new students that I have mentored already knowrepparttar 116970 obvious answer. I still tell everyonerepparttar 116971 same answer every time I hear that same question.

Here isrepparttar 116972 scenario. We’ll call this person “student”.

Student: Why can’t I be as successful as some ofrepparttar 116973 other marketers onrepparttar 116974 Internet? I work as hard or even harder then they do but, my downline and my sales seldom produce anything.

Coach: Are you being consistent about promoting your site?

Student: I’ve done everything that I know to do. I have mailed out on dozens of safelist regularly, joined banner clubs, even runrepparttar 116975 hit exchanges daily torepparttar 116976 maximum. Still it seems nothing is happening for me.

Coach: Hummm…. What’s your website address? I’ll take a look.

Student: It is http://www.thecompany.com/ID?xxxx .

Coach: No, I don’t meanrepparttar 116977 companies site. I’m talking about Your site.

Student: Oh, I don’t have one.

Coach: Bingo! How are you going to control anything that you don’t own? You Can’t. How do you introduce yourself and your product so that your prospect feels comfortable with doing business with you? You Don’t.

Student: Butrepparttar 116978 company does that for me. Even includes a follow up of 5 or 6 messages through their auto responder system on my behalf.

Coach: Those are templates. Are you a template or an individual wanting to do business? The last that I was aware of is that you are an individual, not a template. Your prospect shouldn’t be treated like a boiler room template either.

Student: Well, I’m an individual and I would prefer to do business.

Coach: Then get your own site to introduce yourself first. Then you add your products and services. When you walk downrepparttar 116979 street and run into someone that you haven’t met yet, do you say “Hello, how are you?” Or, do you just simply throw one of your products in their face?

Student: I say “Hello”, of course.

Coach: Bingo, again!

Let me shed some light here about doing business onrepparttar 116980 Internet inrepparttar 116981 “Real World”.

Understand that there is nothing like doing business onrepparttar 116982 Internet. The vast opportunities are virtually limitless. The Internet can take you to a level of realism beyond what you can even dream about.

But always remember,repparttar 116983 internet is only a Tool in which we transmit and receive information. It is “Cold Blooded”. The internet does not have emotion, desires orrepparttar 116984 lack of any need. Not any more than it can breathe, cry or hunger. It does not laugh, be happy or get sad. It does not interact personally on any level. It is only capable of performingrepparttar 116985 commands that you give it. It is “Cold Blooded”.
