Buying Referrals: How Savvy Entrepreneurs Are Generating Them Without Asking!
(And How You Can Too!)
So ‘what’ type of really bad word of mouth and or mouse, publicity, do you think, a locally based, high powered lending institution would generate.
If they literally threw a highly respected, elderly couple, (on a fixed income),who had lived in this particular town, for over 40 years.
Who have been extremely active, in various local charities and their particular church, out of their house, simply because, they were unable to repay a really small loan they had taken out on their home, less than ten years ago.
And because their health suddenly took a dramatic turn for the worse, and neither one could no longer work outside their home, and between their social security and disability payments, simply wasn’t enough to pay off this extremely small loan.
(Relatively speaking, versus the current value of their home, which they’ve lived in close to 38 years!)
Can you imagine the avalanche of negative publicity, and non ending public outcry, (of unabashed greed a work!) when this story hits the national consciousness, and almost instantly goes viral all over social media?

Why Your Small Business Should Take Advantage Of Under Used And Or Dead Assets!Part Five
Are you semi convinced, your current resourced challenged small business, startup entrepreneurial venture,and or service, doesn’t have any dead or under used assets?
Lots business owners, but especially resourced challenged small business owners and startup entrepreneurs, initially buy into this myth.
Granted, larger more established companies, may have more, potentially under used and or dead assets idly sitting around, waiting to be accessed, but rest assured, underneath it all, so do you.
It’s really a matter of developing the right marketing perspective.Because an under used asset, may mean pro-actively taking advantage of current situations, which aren’t being maximized.
Lots of times small business owners and or semi cash strapped service providers, overlook certain money making opportunities, which are readily available to them, (and or) their major competitors, but because they’re not super obvious, they simply don’t see them at first. Continue reading
So maybe they’ll gladly settle for grossing a little, or a whole lot less on their front end, in order to set up grossing the lions share of their long term gross profits on the back end of their particular sales funnel.
It certainly wouldn’t be the first time (nor the last), an extremely marketing savvy entrepreneur, profited from such an all too common marketing ploy.
And just doing that BTW, could constitute working smarter, and not necessarily harder. Continue reading

The only reason I ask, is because, believe it or not, some extremely savvy entrepreneurs, often receive at least part of their traditional ad campaigns, for some incredibly eye opening discounts.
But that’s not what allows them to create major, last long impressions.

But what if there were market tested way, for you to invest your extremely limited marketing/promotional dollars, and generate continuous positive word of mouth and mouse buzz. You’d definitely want to know about it, right? Continue reading

How Savvy Entrepreneurs Create Massive Lists And Tons Of Profits While Doing So!Part Two
So after reading part one of this ongoing series, has it dawned on you, how some incredibly savvy entrepreneurs, make very good use of, and profit handsomely, from the marketing concept, often referred to simply as ‘triangulation?’
I sincerely hope so. Because in essence, this proven concept, is nothing than more, than three or more reputable companies, service providers and or startup entrepreneurs etc.
Strategically playing off of, and or leveraging each others various assets. And doing in so in a way, which mutually benefits every one involved.
Sometimes, in the more complex arrangements, you’ll see four or five non directly competing companies involved.
Some gladly grabbing their percentage, and or the lions share of the front end of the sales funnel, and some gladly doing the same on the back end of the sales funnel.

So how often have you thought about rolling out a potentially pricey advertising campaign of some kind? Because you know (all too well), whether you call it promotion, advertising and or marketing etc.
There are a ton of extremely talented entrepreneurs, (just like) yourself, who are fiercely competing, for your target audiences, extremely limited attention span and share of wallet, correct?
