Marketing Mistakes To Avoid – Hitler Billboard

What were they (not) thinking?!?
Hitler Billboard

Unfortunately most of the marketing mistakes people make are not this blatantly obvious.

I say unfortunately because if they are not obvious, then they are not recognised for the true blunders they are. These are silent killers that erode a company’s profits often to the complete ignorance of the business owner.

Ignorance is simply NOT KNOWING.

NOT KNOWING is no longer an excuse in this day and age of “Exponential Mindset Thinking” – It’s why MasterMind Groups were invented, work so well and are used by all super successful business people and the ultra wealthy.

You can’t be smarter than a group of your peers and you can’t outperform a group of your peers who are focused on your success…

It always baffles me when I hear and see people “going it alone” in business…

 

Failure to Thrive = DEATH

Today’s post is a somber one, one that highlights why some babies die or fail to grow healthy. It’s called the Failure to Thrive syndrome.

Well documented in the medical community, it’s something that few business owners would consider relevant to them.

I beg to differ.

The Failure to Thrive in babies is not all that different from business owners who fail to grow their businesses, their wealth and consciousness. The SOURCE of the problem for business people is the lack of motivation, enthusiasm and support available within the small business sector.

After prolonged exposure to a cold and heartless environment, (too) many business owners just give up and capitulate to the forces of the “failure to thrive syndrome”.

I’ve seen it all too often – especially when I was presenting at ‘FREE public seminars’. The person would be sitting there – OFTEN ONLY because the event was free. They would never consider PAYING for ADVICE because they unknowingly have given up hope let alone the expectation of success.

They are sitting there – like the premature baby, in dire need of HUMAN CONTACT, AFFECTION and LOVE. But they sit there, un-engaged, distant and unresponsive.

They need the attention the most yet THEY GET THE LEAST ATTENTION – OFTEN NO ATTENTION AT ALL.

The other participants engage, participate and contribute to the session – making the situation even worse for the ignored, despondent participant(s).

He or she sees all opportunities as someone else trying to take their money away from them – not realising that most presenters WANT TO GIVE WAY MORE THAN THE COST OF THE PROGRAM / PRODUCT they are selling…

It’s really, really sad to see.

I bring this up because in the medical profession this syndrome has been documented and has been addressed for the most fragile premature babies… very successfully.

Not so in the business community.

The next time you are at an event and see someone withdraw – go to him or her and offer positive advice, support and enthusiasm for them attending – don’t be pushy, just let them know you’re there with them for that hour or two for the SAME reason they’re there – to improve themselves.

That initial touch is often all that person needs to feel connected again.

Do that with one person every time you’re at an event and let see if that helps more entrepreneurs to THRIVE!

Onward and upward!

P.S.

This is so important with what is going on in the Financial and Stock Markets these days. The analysts and experts all agree this situation is totally unprecedented.

We are in uncharted territory.

Anyone with a negative predisposition is going to hit the wall with full force.

Anyone who can’t pick themselves up in the morning and be self-motivated risks getting sucked into the Vortex Of Mediocrity™ that is more powerful than gravity.

I don’t mean to join the chorus of fear mongers out there, but I can see it in peoples’ faces, hear it in their tone of voice and feel it via their movements and posture.

Times are bad and everyone feels it’s going to get worse – A LOT WORSE.

With that in mind, we, as Exponential Mindset™ enthusiasts MUST stick together to make sure we don’t lose any of our colleagues.

In every CRISIS there is OPPORTUNITY…

That is the THINKING that will get us through this.
