The Obamas Violate The First 3 Rules Of Selling

5 10 2009

Here are two articles that every network marketer and entrepreneur should read and learn from.

Both articles examine last week’s speeches of Barack and Michelle Obama to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and explain why the Obamas failed to persuade the IOC to choose Chicago as the host city for the 2016 Olympic Games.

OBAMAS VIOLATED THE FIRST THREE RULES OF SELLING by C. Edmund Wright.

MICHELLE OBAMA’S OLYMPIC ‘GIMME’ SPEECH by Joe Gimenez.

LEARN FROM THE ABOVE TWO ARTICLES!
Whether you agree or disagree with the political philosophy of either writer is irrelevant. What’s relevant is that both Wright and Gimenez correctly identify the flaws and ineffectiveness in the Obamas’ speeches and strategy.

As you read these two articles, take notes as to what the two authors point out was wrong with the Obamas’ strategy, and ask yourself if anything pertains to your sales and marketing tools.

If nothing is pertinent, then that’s good!

But if something is pertinent, then make the necessary changes!

Enjoy the articles . . .  learn from them . . . and share them!

A Mastermind consists of two or more people who work in perfect harmony for a definite purpose.

The Entrepreneurial Mindset

17 09 2009

An entrepreneurial mindset is described by a conglomerate of meta-physical dispositions, also known as entrepreneurial spirit, meant to cause the innovative and energetic practice to identify or create an opportunity and take action aimed at realizing it. The philosophical themes – existentialism, axiology, pragmatism, ethics – are thereby understood to be strange attractors influencing the construction of the entity’s persona as well as the concrete practices of the entity (Figure 1).

Figure 1:Conceptual Model of Philosophical Components of an Entrepreneurial Mindset (Senges 2007)

 

Composite Mindset Philosophy

Important for entrepreneurship is the “creative mindset” (Faltin, 2007) that helps entrepreneurs to create new ideas and bring these to the market in a way appropriate to create value for an external audience. Psychological research highlights that true creativity comes not from the kind of area in which one is active but whether one can conceive of something that is both “new and appropriate” (Amabile, 1996). In this way, a entrepreneurial mindset is a philosophy by which individuals engage in creative acts regardless of the type of work they are engaged in. Thus, the entrepreneurial mindset might exist in cooking just as well as web-2 innovating, it is the philosophy and the action it generate that counts – not the context.

This can be contrasted to a “managerial mindset” which deals with creating order and efficiency through controlling, evaluating, and administrating practices (Sarasvathy, Simon and Lave, 1998). An entrepreneurial mindset is distinct from ‘entrepreneurial cognitions’ in that the former signify a philosophy of personal identity and values whereas the latter signify a group of heuristics or decision-making tools that entrepreneurs use to evaluate and exploit business opportunities. An entrepreneurial mindset is also distinct from Entrepreneurial orientation (EO) which is a collective identity in young entrepreneurial firms that fosters innovativeness, pro-activeness and risk-taking among participants in the firm (Lumpkin and Dess, 1996).

The philosophic codification of the mindset of an entrepreneur follows what Durkheim felt to be the achievement of modernity: “The possibility to dynamically differentiate and elaborate values” (Welsch, 1998). Thereby, as is customary in life-philosophy, the creative and initiative aspects meant to create meaning are given central stage in a holistic (or totalitarian) approach. Peter Sloterdijk elaborates on the role of philosophy : “Philosophy is stylizing the human being with the practice of terminological gene-technology (‘begrifflicher gentechnologie’), thereby developing new taxonomies of human existence” (Sloterdijk, 1999). He further explains that philosophy creates meta-physical concepts of human beings and their condition, which serve as archetypical development paradigms when perceived and internalized. One example given by Sloterdijk, is Freud’s creation, or the meta-physical engineering of the Oedipus complex. The proposed philosophical model of an entrepreneurial mindset is meant to contribute such a typology.

How To Get Unlimited Backlinks from Qassia

19 01 2009

What Are Backlinks?

To Find Out More On How Qassia Can Help Promote You And Your Site For FREE, Vist This Link.

If you know what backlinks are, then you can skip this section. Backlinks are incoming links to your website, and they are essential for making your website rank well in the search engines. This is because these days search engines calculate something called “link popularity” and that is determined by how many backlinks you have, where they are coming from, and how many backlinks the sources of your backlinks have. It gets complicated, but essentially, the more backlinks you get, the better.

Backlinks come in two categories, nofollow and dofollow. They look identical when appearing in a browser; the difference is a qualifier called “rel” in the HTML source code of the links. The nofollow backlink instructs search engines to disregard it when calculating link popularity. Hence nofollow backlinks are, to put it bluntly, useless backlinks. Meanwhile, normal links – called dofollow these days to distinguish from nofollow backlinks – are quality backlinks.

The reason many backlinks are nofollow is that sites are punished for selling dofollow backlinks (as this artificially boosts link popularity), and outgoing link popularity per link is diluted by a large number of dofollow backlinks on a page.

Your Backlinks on Qassia

At Qassia – and as far as we know, only at Qassia – you can get unlimited quality (dofollow) backlinks. These backlinks are found on intel pages. Intel is content contributed by Qassia members, and each intel page may contain one backlink pointing to the contributing member’s website. So you get one backlink to a site of your choosing per intel you contribute.

The backlink is found right under the intel content, and is accompanied with a screenshot of your website.

The dofollow backlinks from the intel pages pointing to your websites are set when the contributor adds intel. On the form for adding intel, there is a section for choosing the backlink, from a list of websites the contributor has added to Qassia. Note that we only allow backlinks to authenticated sites; if the website has not been authenticated, the backlink will not appear on the intel page.

Nofollow Links

Links to your website(s) will also appear on your user page, in our tags directory, and in our search results, as well as in the list of top sites, but these links – unlike the links on intel pages – will all be nofollow links.

However, links pointing to our intel pages (which bear your backlinks) are dofollow even on your user pages, in our tags directory, and our search results, ensuring that link clout is passed on to your backlink.

Improving Your Backlink Quality

To enhance your link popularity gain derived from Qassia, try to add as much intel as possible of as high quality as possible. Intel of high quality (with a high rating assigned by fellow users of about 3.0 or higher) is listed on our front page and gets indexed much more rapidly by the search engines than intel of low quality.

Just one or two backlinks from Qassia may not have much of an effect, so add as many intel as possible. Note that intel of low quality (composite grade of 2.0 or lower) is not archived on the same page as the other intel, and may not be listed at all in our tags directory or search results, as only the top 10 intel in terms of grade are included.

In conclusion, it is important to keep adding backlinks of consistently good quality, in order to gain maximum benefit from Qassia.

To Your Success!
