Every day I come across people who are in the wrong job. You do, too. They are sad, unhelpful and may seem incompetent. It's tempting to get mad at them, but the more humane response is compassion.

John Coates' book, The Hour Between Dog And Wolf, goes deep into the physiology of stress. In it he observes that exhaustion, fatigue, and anxiety are all "messages sent from our body telling us what actions we should take"--which means that we need to listen closely.

John Michel's curator insight, May 5, 2013 8:52 PM

Scientists have suggested that, with a little willpower, it takes roughly 30 days for a person to form a new habit.  As with mastering anything new, the act of starting and getting beyond the preliminary stage where everything feels awkward is 80% of the battle.  This is precisely why it’s important to make small, positive changes every day over the course of at least a 30 day period.

5 Tips To Safely Add Fun To Your Marketing ScentTrail Marketing

5 Tips To Safely Add Fun To Your Marketing ScentTrail Marketing | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Why "Fun" Marketing Is TOUGH

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, April 23, 2013 6:04 PM

After reviewing http://www.thefuntheory.com/ and not having much fun it struck how hard creating "fun marketing" is. In this piece for ScentTrail Marketing I compare creating "fun marketing" to developing viral marketing. 

Turns out FUN is as elusive as viral. Here are my 5 Tips to Safely Create Fun Marketing: 

1. Create Personas.
2. Test, Test, Test.
3. Don't Try To Go "Viral".
4. Find FUN Out There. 
5. Have Some Fun Yourself. 

 

Use these tips and remember to have some fun since it is impossible to LIE for any amount of time in Internet marketing. The math and truth always wins.

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Finally this article says what everyone should know about sale, but it's also valid both in the social media world and, of course, in the real life. Be a person who gives is always the best path to receive more in return, even if you do not expect that and it's not your goal. [note Martin Gysler]

 

 

Bob Burg, co-author of The Go-Giver, says high-pressure sales are the wrong way to go.

 

To many people, sales is a shady profession, predicated on shark-like closing techniques, manipulation, and shallow, transactional relationships. Bob Burg says that’s exactly the wrong approach. “Top salespeople, the best of the best, understand that when it comes to selling, it isn’t about them or their product or service. It’s about the other person and how they benefit from it,” he says. Burg, co-author (with John David Mann) of the bestselling The Go-Giver: A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea and their follow-up Go-Givers Sell More, admits his emphasis on the other person “sounds Pollyanna-ish.” But he’s convinced that a low-pressure – even no-pressure – approach will ultimately result in far more sales (not to mention greater career satisfaction for its practitioners).

Aspiring idea entrepreneurs are everywhere: in businesses, classrooms, and communities of all kinds, all over the world. Maybe you know one. Maybe you are one. But you don't have a massive influence-creation machine behind you (few people do) and you wonder how to get your idea heard above all the others competing for attention. How do you proceed?
