Adventures in Xtreme Marketing and Networking


Article Body:

There are some things in life that are bound to happen. Yesterday was March 21, the vernal equinox . On today of the year there's a wierd phenomenon that happens . it's an equivalent per annum , on today you'll stand an prod it's end for several hours. per annum for several years, I even have been ready to calculate this as I even have amazed people by doing it. It never fails, and it doesn't really work the other time of the year. In fact, later within the day, the egg will go over after standing for several hours.

It also never fails that a networking or marketing opportunity can happen when least expected.

On one Saturday, as I drove through downtown Atlanta on my way home from a morning networking function, I passed a downtown hotel that had a line of individuals around it a block long. There must are over five hundred people in line, all wearing business attire. So I immediately searched for a parking lot and unrolled onto the sidewalk to seek out out what was happening.

It so happened that a really popular television reality show that was on hebdomadally called The A--------- was holding auditions in Atlanta. I didn't spell out the name because i'm unsure about trademark issues.

When I found this out, I went deep into my pocket and pulled out my pocket billboards (small flyers with info on them). I walked round the corner to the front of the road and commenced handing out cards to everyone in line. instead of taking time to network with everyone, I said to them, "This is that the favorite business site in Atlanta, make certain to see it out."

Halfway down the block, i used to be accosted by a really large gentleman who advised me that i used to be not allowed handy out flyers to the people in line. He was there working with the show (he had a special badge). Now if you think about the kinds of things that the participants of this show are expected to try to to , I should actually get on subsequent show! But here he was telling me I couldn't roll in the hay .

So being the acute networker that i'm , I visited the rear of the road and commenced to figure my thanks to the front. whenever the hotel security came by i might stop and act like i used to be waiting in line. As soon as they walked away, I resumed my process.

Now wait a moment . Was what i used to be doing illegal? NO. i used to be doing exactly what the people in line were doing, i used to be handing out my card to people standing in line? Does the hotel own the sidewalk around it? NO. The sidewalks are owned by the town . Was what i used to be doing risky? Yes, although there was no criminality , I could are physically faraway from the world and detained against my will until they decided to let me leave.

Was it well worth the risk? YES. The people therein line were my target market. quite 500 people that want to achieve success in business and that i have just the tool to assist them,

So what's the purpose of this article?

The point is that sometimes it's worth taking a risk to realize our goals. To be safe altogether that I do would have deprived me of a chance to succeed in many prospects and other people who can enjoy using the online site.

Are you taking risks in your business to realize your goals? does one end up doing the safe things? i would like to go away you with a quote that I even have read and heard frequently recently. I wish I knew who said it so I can reference them, but here it's anyway.

If you usually do what you've always done, you will always get what you usually got.

Take some risks and watch your business take off!
