Myth and Reality of Online Home Business with Strange and Fun Pictures to Remember

Myth and Reality of Online Home Business with Strange and Fun Pictures to Remember

First, I should apologize upfront because I am a former art teacher and enjoy creating new synergies with visual images.  Sometimes, the right image is harder to forget like wallpaper in your mind.

First - the Myth:

The #1 asset in your online business is your customer list. No cold-calling - self-branding - magnetic marketing

Still hard to fathom why marketers continue shouting out promotions for the latest superhighway and their lead generation empire.  Why bother building highways for the Great Virtual Silent Masses?

Now the Reality:

The #1 asset in your business is building your relationship with your customer list. Always has been, always will be with any business.

Therefore, your main strategy should be to manage and talk with your customers or prospects. Do you agree?

When I realized this my marketing education changed as well as the course of my life forever. My #1 job in marketing is to sort the interested and motivated and then set up a conversation about what matters to them …. the economy … common hopes … lack of skills and other objections.  


I use one generic home business resource to set up this education and rapport before evaluating or joining a network marketing business.


Now it's time to have some creative fun with some unusual images!

A. The huge all-encompassing Internet is compared to a giant blue whale sucking in traffic "krill" hour after hour.  Sometimes it can be an automated robot but for many individuals it is matter of trolling day after day in the Sea of Vast Data. Social media only harpoons these whales.

B. Learning to use online strategies is like an octopus with eight arms connected to his head lined with rows of suckers capable of much pressure. It seems sincere with 3 hearts and a small bird-size brain with most neurons distributed along its arms so it can perform several tasks at the same time. An octopus can regenerate lost arms and likes to collect shiny objects.

C. Sharks are not so bad ... If a stranger came into my house wearing only a bathing suit, I'd probably get angry too. If the stranger comes in with varied hooks to target me to buy something, I may very well intimidate him … instantly not interested. 

D. Finally the story about the Elephant and the Blind Men is common enough. Imagine MLM home Business as a giant lumbering elephant. The public already has classified it as unwieldy and only a few "blind" curious onlookers may take a closer look by feeling the elephant with their hands. Thus, their opinions are formed by what they felt - the trunk (like a branch), the tail (like a snake), the leg (like a pillar), the ear (like a fan) or the side (like a wall)  Nobody wants to listen to each other and  the elephant opportunity, grandiose as it may have been,  is shortly dismissed. Or it goes away to someone who is educated about the Big Picture.

In my opinion, the time is right to continue respecting the blue whale, but there is no room for octopi, sharks or blind opinions in the Internet Age of Abundance with "open" fishing season for everybody ... with or without technical skills. 


This is why I use one generic home business resource as a platform to share with prospects to get them on the same page before evaluating any network marketing business.


If you wish to facilitate valuable discussions about your home business with family, friends, customers or prospects and the future of the Digital Economy, this new generic resource wll give you facts, insights and some unusual pictures, too. 

Questions, comments and valuable conversations are always welcome.
