You must do this every day.
You must ask for It.
It is the SALE.
You must sell.
I don’t mean contacting an affiliate, or putting a blog post, but actually asking someone to buy your product today, either via social media or email.
You should be selling your own product every single day.
So did you? Did you sell today? Did you solve someone’s misery today with the solution you created to save the world?
If not, why not?
What better use of your time could you have possibly had?
“You don’t need to know how to create products or motivate people or manage anything to successfully start a business. What you need are two fundamental skills:
1) You have to know how to make a sale.
2) You have to be able to put that sales process into action. Once your business is making sales and you have achieved a minimum critical mass of customers, your problems, challenges, and opportunities change.” – Mark Ford
You can’t make money if you don’t sell.
You can’t avoid this harsh reality.
“There is a direct relationship between the success of a business at any given time and the percentage of its capital, temporal, and intellectual resources that are devoted to selling.” – Mark Ford, “Ready, Fire Aim“, page 54
Don’t hide behind activity.
Only accomplishment counts.
So that’s your 10-minute task today.
Selling solves problems. Selling gives you freedom. Selling is the real skill you need to have.
Go out and sell something,
“Go and sell something. America needs the business.” – Zig Ziglar
