The Expert Marketer of Writing
By William Ballard
Today I am deviating a bit from my series to bring you a New Year's post. I will return to my series within the next few weeks, but until then...
There is a statement that Grant Cardone (Expert of Selling) always says that I would like to share with you, "Clearly define what you want to be known for and pursue that calling with massive action." In other words, define what you want to do with your life and then pursue it with everything you got within you.
Consider this: When you think of leadership who comes to mind? Well, for most, I would venture to guess that the answer to that question would be John C. Maxwell author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership (AFF) and The 5 Levels of Leadership (AFF). He has been dubbed the leadership guru.
When you think of selling who naturally comes to mind? Well, such names that come to my mind are Brain Tracy, Grant Cardone author of Sell or Be Sold (AFF) and The 10x Rule (AFF), and even Jim Rohn (who has just recently passed away).
What about network marketing, who comes to mind? Well, for me, the number one authority that comes to mind is Eric Worre, author of Go Pro: 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional (AFF).
Well, we can go on and on naming authority figures and what they have been known for, but I want to make it perfectly clear what I want this site to be known for in 2015 and beyond - Expert Marketer of Writing!
Now Let Me Explain What I Mean By This...
When I say, "Expert Marketer of Writing" what I am essentially saying is that this site is going to be known for being the one stop shop for everything you need to know about marketing your writing.
Or, in other words, let me put to you like this: If you are an self-published author and are looking for new ideas to sell more of your books and be able to really live the writer's life, then this is the site for you.
If you are freelance writer, copywriter, blogger, ghostwriter, or anything in between those lines, and you are looking for new ways to market your writing services and build up a list of clientele that are happy to work with you, then this site is for you as well.
I am taking Grant Cardone's advice and defining what I want myself and this site to be known for and pursuing that aim with massive action.
The Year 2015 is the Year of Massive Action
In Grant Cardones book, The 10x Rule (AFF), he explains with inspiring and impactful wisdom, the concept of Massive Action (10xing your entire life). You see, most gurus will talk to you about setting goals for the new year, however, they very seldom talk about taking action and/or capitalizing on those goals with explosive action.
In essence, goal setting is all fine and good, but to not put forth action towards those goals makes goals setting a waste of time. And, you see, how you manage or spend your time is what will determine your success or failure in the new year.
So I want to encourage you to not only set your goals for all the important areas of your life (physical, emotional, mental, professional, and spiritual) but also put forth the massive action necessary to accomplish those goals.
Think of the 10x Rule concept like this: If your goal is to reach and land on the moon and you do whatever it takes to accomplish that feat with massive action, even if you miss, you will land among the stars! If your goal is to make $100,000.00 in your writing business this new year, multiply it by 10 and go for $1,000,000.00, even if you fall short of the goal of a million you will ultimately fall much higher than your original goal of hundred thousand.
That is why I am focusing this year on massive action rather than just on setting goals and wishing on a star. I am going all-in this year to give you the greatest value that you can get as a writer and author, and nothing is going to stop me!
