Ha!ha!I – Great question.
I was listening to the news this morning when I heard something that struck me: One of the largest network of shops I know that sold cameras was going into administration. In short, this company was bust.
Over 1300 jobs were to be lost and over 180 shops will be closed. This company has been around for over 80 years!
The reporter said that this sad fail was for 2 reasons:.
Amateur photographers had now stopped shopping from this giant retailer because technology was moving fast and everyone now had a camera on their phone. So there was no real need for anyone to go into a shop in order to buy a camera.
The second reason?
Professional photographers would go online to look for a photography enthusiast’s website, read camera reviews and buy online from their website.
The message clearly was this: Business was moving online at an incredible pace. People with websites were making the money.
Post offices have been reporting for years that fewer people than ever are now sending letters and mail. (Due to email of course) . In fact, what they are seeing is a fantastic rise in the number of parcels that they are delivering to millions of homes, year after year.
Again, due to more and more people doing their business online. Online is where its at and where its going to be for the foreseeable future. Online is fantastic!
This is so exciting because I know that all I have to do is put myself between the shoppers and the product that they are after. And get paid. Online is fantastic because 24 hours a day, seven days a week, someone somewhere is at a computer, or on their phone spending money on their chosen product. I know that all I have to do is put myself between the shoppers and the product and get paid again.
Even more fantastic is how easy it is set myself up, over and over again as often as I want to, just because I can. I will show you how.
Its not about the money…
But its not all about money – money always comes second. What comes first is the product or service or value that you add to people’s lives.
You could look at it from a product point of view:(find a great product that changes people’s lives). Or from a service point of view (provide an excellent service consistently to people). Or from a relationship point of view (build meaningful relationships over time with people that you meet).
Focus on one or all of these three things and I guarantee you that the money will follow. Its also good Karma.
