Need To Make MILLIONS Online? Don't Duel In The Sun, Us G+

Need To Make MILLIONS Online? Don't Duel In The Sun, Us G+ | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

This GPlus Post discusses how to avoid the lemmings traps so many Internet marketers follow the leader into. The post also shares @MarkTraphagen's brilliant idea - use the not yet competitively frenzied G+ environment as the HUB of all your Internet Marketing. 

Sure I know we've been preaching TAPESTRY and I've been preaching that too. We are somewhere NEW and DIFFERENT now. The TIME it takes you to catch your competitors on Facebook and Twitter CAN'T GENERATE ROI.

You may win the battle, catch up on Facebook and lose the war. Don't do that. Look for BLUE OCEANS, places like G+ and video marketing (and those two ideas are related thanks to hangouts) where setting up a "virtual positive cycle" means in a short amount of time you will get MORE with LESS.

Don't duel in the sun just because everyone is doing it.

AGREE - Google Plus Disrupts
I was in a conference the other day and people actually chuckled when Google plus was mentioned, they laughed. "Perfect," I remember thinking; "no one gets it yet time to double down on Google Plus". You don't make millions online by doing things the way others are doing them. 

You make money by being remarkable, distinct and disruptive. Money is simply the currency we use to keep score. You can't make money online by setting out to make money (irony). Authentic honesty is the table stakes of online poker. 

Insincere disruption or disruptions not supported by social signals don't last long. Once you know the story you want to tell, I would tell it on Google Plus. Don't forsake the other social nets, just use G+ as your main horse, the one you ride the most and the one who gets the best oats. 

Why? More than just G+ comes from Google; Google Plus is less crowded (at the moment) and less defined. "Less defined" means common groupthink and best practices are less established. Since Google Plus is a suite of tools with many possible combinations it may stay "less defined" for a long time. 

The way you combine and use the suite of tools that make up G+ may be very different than the next user (and this is what you want). It is easier to use a suite of tools to disrupt than a platform. Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have their own very defined structure, a structure largely controlled by someone else. 

Tools Rule
Google Plus is not perfect (by a long shot). Many of its elements and tools are counter-intuitive and infuriating (at first). Hang in there and keep creating, combining and re-combining and you will like the end result (eventually). 

Google Plus is more conducive to long form content and conversations too. Don't just repost. Make sure you add some original value even if the piece started somewhere else. Can't have conversations on Twitter and Facebook friends want to hear about your children and trips. G+ is where I go to have meaningful conversations about Internet marketing.

The environment can turn contentious on strange things, but adopt the attitude that all feedback is GOOD, praise and listen and your ideas will get BETTER on G+. How disruptive is that?
