Start With People Who Already Believe That They Have A Problem You Can Solve

Sharing another post from my blogging idol, Seth Godin.

“It’s much easier to persuade a philanthropist to fund your project than it is to persuade a rich person to become a philanthropist.

Encouraging someone to shift slightly, to pick this instead of that, is a totally different endeavor than working to turn a no into a yes, to change an entire pattern of behavior.

When looking to grow, start with people who already believe that they have a problem you can help them solve.”


To me the most important point is the last one. I see so many business leaders and decision-makers not really understand their customers. Having a solid grasp on the the challenges your customers face and how you can solve them is a key to success.

For all my network marketing friends this is especially true, you really need to make sure your product is something your potential customers really want and need. if not, you either need a new product or a new network of prospects.

If you need help, let us know. DMAI can show you how to optimize your business strategy to offer the right product to the right people.
