Funny how when you do what you love it just happens naturally. When you love what you do for work, somehow it simply doesn’t feel like work.
Many people start new businesses and focus only on the monetary side of the equation. They sit and brainstorm services, products, apps, technology, gidgets and gadgets they can sell.
They think of names, purchase domain names, start building websites before they have even thought about let alone figured out who is going to buy the offer or product. They often have no idea how they are going to take it to market, integrate social media or the million other things that are required to build a successful business.
The Desperate Dollar Chasing Entrepreneur
We know this conversation well as we get loads of these entrepreneurs contacting us each week. Everyone seems to have the brand new shiny social network that is going to oust Facebook from the interwebs.
These business owners fill out a contact form on our website begging us to review their product that is going to push Facebook and Google+ to the curb. Most of the time they provide a gmail email address as a reply contact. It’s obvious it’s a form letter they have copied and pasted into tens if not hundreds of websites.
Then the bad ones take it a step further and contact us on LinkedIn. It’s the same story repeated. Once again they’re begging for clicks, links, blog write-ups or our commitment to be an influencer ready to rave about their awesome product to our social communities.
