So I usually wear a seersucker shirt, but I wanted to record this real quick for my daily vlog, because here’s the deal whatever idea you ever have in life number one obstacle will be marketing it, because humans have a natural aversion to anything new.
That’s why brands? Like coca-cola keep winning, because if you come up with a soda, nobody naturally trusts it until it’s been proven over and over. So marketing becomes the key to anything, no matter how great your idea, if you’re an artist musician, social media person, entrepreneur online entrepreneur, you’ve got pizza, restaurant, you know whatever it is, you have to acquire clients and keep them happy, and so here’s the number one rule That everyone forgets don’t market narcissistically.
What I mean by that is don’t market, something that only you’re interested in, and I know that sounds so obvious people are like. I already know that time, but not really people don’t really understand the extent to which I’m talking about. Ah, I’m walking here’s a little cooler that are light. People understand the extent to which our brain will naturally build our marketing on narcissistically selfishly.
So, let’s just take an example, I saw the other day this mattress commercial, you seen those ever late at night. Look how nice it is out today they call this the magic hour because the lights real nice, but this mattress commercial, has the owner and he’s not very good he’s, not very good on camera and he’s there talking about why you should buy a mattress from him And I was thinking dude, nobody really wants to see.
You like you know, you’re, not good, at doing your commercial. Why don’t you stay behind the scenes? And I know why? Because he thought it would be cool for him to market himself in that way, but much better to make a persuasive marketing piece. You know commercial, you don’t see the shirt, you don’t see the CEO of coca-cola in all the commercials. Now there is a time if you’re good on camera, you can use your own.
You know you can use your own images, your own articles, but that was just an example that came to mind. I was thinking who’s, this guy building the marketing for himself and at the end of the day, if you build your market for yourself, you’re going to be broke period. So how do you get into the minds of people? That’s what it really comes down to and I’ll tell you. The simplest way to get into the minds of potential customers is to do rapid experimenting, Rapide Rapide Rapide.
You know I did some of you have seen some of my youtube articles that woman viral and they’ve had. I just looked check my stats in the last year year and a half did 540 million minutes readed. It’s a lot YouTube told me. They won’t tell me if it’s the most, but it’s a lot half a billion minutes, not just views minutes and part of that paid advertising and part of that virality. There’s a formula I’ll talk about that another article.
But when I first made my very first article, I even won with the Lamborghini. It didn’t not that many people liked it. It was me and Jeremy just driving around and it wasn’t that persuasive of marketing. So you know maybe got a hundred thousand views versus the other. One got over 100 million and I was in Paris. I shot that one first, one that did not go viral and I went to Paris for New Year’s and then I came back and I was like.
Let me just keep experimenting, get inside the mind of people, but instead of me presupposing. I knew what was inside the line. I built some rapid test. I record about 20 30 more tests, and one of them was the here in my garage article, which was kind of the beginning of a lot of the social media articles that I did and that one’s gotten no one knows exactly how many people viewed it. Maybe 100 million people globally lot 50 to 100, probably more but I’ll be conservative with that and that came from rapid experimentation.
I experimented that whole process was in two months. I did enough experimenting, so if you can experiment, then you won’t build this selfish narcissistic marketing. That just doesn’t work much time. You read TV you’ll, see it all day long and then you’ll see those few commercials that really catch your attention, so whatever you’re trying to market get inside through rapid experimentation. I was talking to.
I got a guy, a friend of mine, kind of a were loosely affiliated and his name is Adrian Morrison and he built out a system what he does. He goes on Facebook and he just like rapidly experiments products that people want to buy. He does Facebook advertising a different internet advertising and he discovers through a process of trial and error, but rapid trial and error what people want to buy and he can build businesses extremely quickly.
You know ecommerce businesses, someone will make whatever thousand bucks a month. Ten thousand and fifty thousand I don’t know the numbers are fairly big. I mean he’s out making 100 million bucks a year, but it’s making seven figures. Maybe eight, I’m not sure I’ll have to ask him. His exact numbers doesn’t matter, makes a good living just selling. All kinds of stuff that you wouldn’t think that necessarily it would be able to make that much money, but he does and he actually wrote a book, I’m going to put a link to his book.
He I got him to give a free download of it. It’s like how to build a profitable ecommerce business and it’s this whole system of testing.
