Internet Marketing Tips – Are You Preaching To The Choir?
I have to admit, it was having my own talk show, after eight years of marketing online, that got me thinking about the topic of this article. In a second, I’m going to explain why. But for now, I want you to think about this question. Are YOU preaching to the choir? Not sure? Well, you might want to read this article to find out if you are and if so, what you can do about it.
Okay, so like I said, I started hosting my own talk show with Caliban Darklock about a week ago. We’ve done two shows so far. The purpose of the show is educate people on various aspects of Internet marketing. Seems simple enough, right? But then I started looking around the conference room at some of the names in attendance. I realized that there were people in that room, quite a few in fact, who knew just as much about Internet marketing, if not more, as I did.
And that’s what got me asking myself this question. Am I preaching to the choir? Am I sharing anything that is of any use to anybody, no matter how good the info is? And if not, what in God’s name was I doing there? Was I just listening to the sound of my own voice? And then it hit me. And this is what I hope to get across to you in this article.
Everybody, no matter how advanced they are as a marketer, has some piece of knowledge that they’re missing or maybe aren’t as expert on as other pieces. For example, while I have a basic understanding of SEO, I am by NO means an SEO expert. I wouldn’t even profess to be. That’s probably one of the reasons why I’d never tackle SEO as a topic on one of my shows. I’d end up sounding like an idiot. But Caliban may know a lot about SEO, and if so can pick up the slack there should somebody have an SEO question.
Point is, we can all learn something from each other no matter how advanced we are or think we are. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard something about a subject that I thought I knew everything about only to be greeted with a little tidbit of knowledge that actually added something to my arsenal of marketing tactics.
There is always something to learn. So if you think you’re preaching to the choir, you might be surprised to learn that they can actually learn something from YOU.
To YOUR Success,
