The Snowball Effect – Encouraging You To Keep At It

The Snowball Effect – Encouraging You To Keep At It

A couple of interactions yesterday and today with some of the people I mentor prompted me to write this blog post. The first one was with a client who I coach on his branding and marketing. A few weeks ago, he published his first book. He had a great marketing plan, a very cool style, and a theme that involved a half  dozen books in the same series. The branding was excellent. Yesterday, as we were deciding on the details of the second book in the series, he changed his mind. He wanted to do a completely new cover design with totally different branding and marketing. When I asked him why he said this to me: “The first book just hasn’t done very well. I haven’t sold very many copies and the marketing just isn’t working so I want to try something new.” Hold that thought while I tell you about the second conversation I had this morning. A person I mentor in the online business arena was discouraged that he was working hard and things just weren’t moving along as fast as he wanted. He was also a little bit discouraged that he hadn’t gotten started many years ago (that would have put him way ahead of the game from where he is now). To encourage him, I sent him a screenshot of my email inbox this morning. It had over 50 emails of payments made to me for various products and services since I went to bed last night. They ranged from $149 to $24 yearly subscriptions. Is it nice to wake up and see a healthy paycheck for that day sitting in your inbox? You bet it is. Was it easy to get to this point? Did I do it overnight? Did I just get lucky and stumble onto some online business success? Not a chance. Being blessed with an inbox full of purchases today is the result of years of the “snowball effect.” The Snowball Effect Every business effort, online or not, has to start somewhere. It has no mass and no momentum. To understand that statement, stop and visualize very clearly in your mind what I’m about to describe: Create a giant snowball that is plummeting down a hill with increasing speed and power. Got that visual in your head? How do you make that happen? To begin, your snowball has no mass and no momentum. To begin to build mass – what you have to do? You have to manually gather snow and start packing it up in your hands. No one is going to do it for you. It’s not going to magically appear on its own. You have...
