The Only Skill You Need to Survive Today
Please Pay Attention!
Today I want to discuss one skill every person
must strive to learn to survive in any economy.
That skill is…
That is the only skill you need to know how to
master. Once you have mastered how to market, then
you can sell anything.
According to one of my mentors Eben Pagan,
[He makes $20 million per year selling online without an office]
he defines Marketing as ‘Communication That Results to Sales’
Marketing should not be confused with Selling, they are
two different concepts.
If you try to sell in today’s economy, you will fail woefully.
Instead learn how to market and all your money worries will be
In the developed world, marketers are among the highly paid
professionals in the world.
If you know how to market, then you don’t need to bother
yourself whether you have a product to sell or not.
Few years ago, what works online can be described as follows…Create a product Build a site to sell the products Create an awareness campaign to sell products-this method worked 5 years back, it doesn’t work currently
in the online world.
While the above selling strategy may work to an extent, there’s
very limited success for anyone going that route.
Today, a marketer will follow this working strategy…Build an audience in a specific niche Build a relationship to establish trust Use a survey to know the needs of your audience Look for a product to satisfy those needs In the above strategy, before a marketer sells a product
to his audience, he already has a “waiting” audience for
In other words, build an audience first, before looking for
a product to satisfy the needs of the audience.
As soon as the product is made available, the marketer will
continue to make sales.
So if you want to learn marketing, the first thing you need
to do is to research lucrative niches that can fetch the
most money for you.
Once you get a lucrative niche market, build an audience in
that niche market, communicate with them, help them in anyway
possible, then ask them how you can further help them.
At that point, you can start introducing paid products which
you can make money from.
let’s assume you’re completely new to the
entire concept of using the internet to sell and make money.
You want to jump in, but you don’t know how to get started.
But you decide
to pick up one of the niche blogs.
But there’s a problem…
The problem is that you don’t have a product of your own,
and you don’t even know how to create a product in any niche
As a starter, the best way to start is, starting as an affiliate
or joining a network marketing company and using your blog to
sell the products.
That way the problem of products has been solved as you now
have ready products for your market.
Let’s look at 5 scenarios..

This niche is a women’s niche market, and it’s a lucrative one.
For this niche, you will need to build a newsletter giving simple
tips and advise on beauty, skin problems, acne, and make up.
Once you have build up to 500 – 1,000 readers, after surveying
them and knowing the solutions to their problems, you now know
the type of products they need.
You can join any of these network marketing companies for Beauty
and Make up products.

Beauty and Make up category called “Sonya range of products”.

your customers who are now your team members.So you can see, it’s very easy to make money once you master one important skill.
