“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”.
It’s said these days that one is paid by the value one gives out to the marketplace. The more value you offer to people and the more you can show that you have the solution to problems, the more likely you are to be rewarded.
As online marketers we see and give so much away for free that sometimes the perception is that there is no value to what is being offered. After all, FREE means nothing is being PAID, so how is there any VALUE in it?
A dilemma I’m sure, but one thing is certain – if you don’t offer any value, it’s unlikely you will be paid.
To Be Of Value You Must Value Yourself
One important thing to remember is that self belief is a big factor in this.
You could be saying “I don’t have a value to give”. I’ll bet you know someone who does have that value. There may be a webinar that is being presented by a leader your following and you have a prospect who could benefit greatly from the content of that webinar. Don’t hesitate to recommend it. There! You Have VALUE.
Not much, but it’s a start!
You value what you have and what you learn. Be prepared to SHARE it. Bingo! More Value from you.
If you learn from training or you get some mentoring to help you, when something is of value then share it. In some cases it may be best to try it out yourself to be sure it works for you before you do. Don’t EVER be afraid to share something.
As you move forward and learn more, your value will increase because your knowledge will increase. When you can show that you have generated 10 leads from a certain method and signed up new reps into your network marketing business, you have the means to do a webinar yourself. Don’t be afraid to CHARGE for it. Even if it’s only a fiver, the VALUE is worth a lot more. What’s more, you then have your own product!
People perceive things and perception of FREE as stated above is that there is little or no value. When you charge, the perception of the content to the amount paid is key. When you over deliver on a paid product that truly HELPS your prospects, do you think they will share this? Value your own knowledge because when you learn how to set up a blog for example, you already know more than at least 95% of people out there. VALUE it.
This value is just the beginning of your success journey.
Do yourself a BIG favour and stop thinking you have no value to give. Your success depends on sharing what you learn. Compile the things you do learn and when you have success, share it. You will be on your way to be a consultant as well as a successful marketer too.
Remember that the more success you have, the more value you have to offer. The more value you have to offer, the more you will be able to charge for your expertise and the more successful you will become.
You can build your business based on this fact. It’s very true that when you create value, success follows.
