This Product Sells Itself!

This Product Sells Itself Written By: Denise Lee Porter

I want a nickel for every time that I’ve been told “This product sells itself”. It wouldn’t bother me so much if there weren’t such a proliferation of advertising across the Interwebz about opportunities where the product or service is so necessary to everyday living that , well it just jumps out of the cases in your garage and into the waiting arms of consumers across America.

It got me to thinking , food is a bare necessity but my local supermarket has to send a sales paper to get me in there to make a purchase, so food doesn’t sell itself. Clothing is a necessity,and again if there isn’t a sale on, don’t look for me at the mall. Shelter, now there’s a necessity, and we all know what happened to the US housing market over the past two years or so. So if the bare necessities don’t sell themselves, then obviously nothing else will either.

Everything is about selling. Getting a good job is all about making a sales call on a recruiter or manager and hoping that you close the sale and walk away hired. Keeping a job means selling your personality and skills daily to people that you may or may not even want to be around -but you’ve got to pay the bills for all the crap you’ve been sold on. When you met your spouse you had to sell him or her on You, if you’re single and looking then chances are you are selling every time you go on a date or meet someone new.

Life my friend, is a sales call. What am I really saying though? I am saying that if you want to get into network marketing or internet marketing, by all means do it, there is so much income potential in these two areas. But don’t fall for the okey doke, if someone tells you that you can make 20k a month starting tomorrow, while you sleep and your turnkey system does all the work — well if you believe them that’s on you.

You can become a successful marketer with ease (and that ease is all in your head, it’s your mindset that dictates the level of “ease”), but you can’t become one by being lazy, or waiting for the guy who signed you up to do the work for you, or reading books that teach strategies which you never implement. Nor can you become one if you don’t want your information on the internet and refuse to use social media tools, or are afraid to pick up the phone and actually talk to other humans about your product, service or opportunity.

This product doesn’t sell itself, you do — so get to work.

very true! every word of it in fact and how many times have you heard it said.. the product sells itself?

Success is business and in life comes from setting goals and applying the focus and attaining the skills to reach those goals, as simple as that.

Good post..
