Is Old School Marketing Dead and Gone?

Is Old School Marketing Dead and Gone?

I can remember a few years back when I first started building my first home based business.

My instructions from my mentor were very simple:

old school marketing“Make a list. Call the people on that list. Share your opportunity with them. Talk to new people. Add their name & number to that list. Repeat the process.”

So I did this for almost a year.

I enrolled around 4 people personally into the particular company, and they branched out and it turned into about 75 people.

I thought we were on fire! I thought the duplication was through the roof and we were about to get into the “real money”…

Until I realized that most people aren’t going to make a list.

They aren’t going to call their mom, dad, uncle, grandpa, neighbor, nor best friend.

Most people pre-judge the ones they know and love the most, and don’t want to be embarrassed when they call someone about their new “business opportunity”.

So what is the Solution?

People new to our industry prefer a simple system that will get them the names and numbers of people who have already shown an interest in starting a home business.


Because they are just names and numbers on a piece of paper.

No need to worry about being embarrassed while calling John Doe from across the country.

Sure, the whole “calling friends and family thing” worked for awhile…

…but not everybody was interested in the triangle shaped “pyramid thing”.

I struggled for over a year building it this way only to make a few hundred a month, and maybe you can relate to this.

Then one day, a light bulb went off.

Ding Dong

I thought to myself, what if I could find a way to get my message of additional income, tax savings and more freedom to the people who ALREADY WANTED this?

People who wouldn’t settle for the status quo.

People who realized that Social Security, some 401k or a JOB isn’t the solution.

People who don’t give a shit what the naysayers have to say.

People who aren’t afraid to take a few risks…

…and guess what happened?

Once I learned how to get my message and opportunity in front of ONLY these qualified people, my results nearly doubled.

Moral of the story? Marketing is only effective and profitable if you deliver the right message about an excellent product, to the right people, at the right time.
