Did that headline grab your attention?
I hope it did, because this is possibly one of the most important blog posts I’ve made on Hit Exchange News in quit some time. I hope every owner, affiliate and surfer reads it and understands the importance of what I’m about to rant about…
We think way too small in this business!
And it really, and I mean really, hurts us. As owners, affiliates and fans alike, the thought of being ‘average and good enough’ absolutely ruins our potential to be great. Let me dive into this a bit more so you can see what I mean.
Have you heard this one before? I’m just a little guy. I’m a little traffic exchange. I’m just an average affiliate. I’m just a small time marketer.
This is unfortunately the attitude of 95% of the people in this business, whether they own a traffic exchange or are just trying to start building a list…We are our own worst enemy.
We fight and bicker amongst each other over ‘500 active surfers’ instead of working to build a thriving and prosperous industry for all. I mean since when is 1000 members in a traffic exchange…Good enough? We need more people that aren’t happy with 1000 members, they want 1000 new members a day! That’s the kind of attitude we need.
I’m sure you have heard of the 80/20 rule where 20% of the owners and affiliates make up 80% of all income earned in any industry…And while that’s a crazy stat, it’s more or less bang on in this business. Heck, I’d be willing to say it’s more like a 90 / 10 split. But regardless of what that is, how do we become BETTER so that we are all in the top earners in this industry. An industry where the new ‘average’ is to have 50,000 members? Where six figure traffic exchange owners and affiliates are common place?
It comes from starting to think BIG and less about trying to be average. Pushing ourselves forward to become better than the day before and STOPPING the jealousy and fighting.
We need owners and affiliates that want a THRIVING and profitable business. One that grows by leaps and bounds each and every day…Instead of just 1000 members…Let’s shoot for 10,000, 100,000 or heck, even in EasyHits4U numbers of 1 million!
Stop the ‘little guy syndrome’ that is killing your success. We were all once a ‘little guy’….The difference is some of us didn’t settle for being average. We wanted to grow and continue to grow to this day.
