Be quick or be dead!
Do you remember that old time when the fastest gun was the best in the old west?
In our days, when you advertise online, it’s still “Be quick or be dead”.
If you compare with advertising on TV, the people online can choose to move out of the ad before it reach the end (on TV, they need to change the channel).
Online, if you want to make a sale, you need to be ultra-effective in less than 10 seconds (4 seconds on YouTube). If you’re not effective, then you get flushed for something that is more interesting.
How can you make an ad that will sell in less than 4 seconds?
- Be quick and to the point with your text. Less than 10 words should be your goal.
- Always use the “you” in your ad. Make it personal to the viewer.
- Use easy to read font and size.
- Ask a question. Using a question is one of the best way to catch the attention of a viewer.
- Give an option to get more info and open that info on a new page.
- Don’t over filled the ad with graphic. Make it simple to get the message in less than 4 seconds.
Online, if you want success, you need to be quick.
Don’t let someone else choose your mood for the day.
Impose your choice.
We have to learn to use the past in our advantage. We need to use the past as a boost on our motivation for what we are building.
We can’t change the past, but we can choose to remember what we want from it.
“The past always looks better than it was. It’s only pleasant because it isn’t here.”
– Finley Peter Dunne
Take 50 peoples that are witness to an event. Visit them 5 years later and you’ll find out that they all have their own memories of what did happen. And it will be 50 different memories. They’ll all tell the truth from what they remember.
If we use our past to boost our present positive action, we are using the past in a good way.
We all choose the way we use the past.
“Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.”
– Dale Turner
Do good deeds and you will always feel good about it. Even if someone else used you in some way.
Tenacity: Being tenacious, holding fast, persistence.
Finding good reason to give up will never get you anything good. Giving up can be used to learn and grow. But if you let it become a habit, you’ll end up losing a lot.
“You can’t give up! If you give up, you’re like everybody else.”
– Chris Evert
Be persistent in doing what needs to be done every day. Make a list of the most important one, and start with one at the top.
It doesn’t matter if you do them all every time, as long as you do the most important first.
Most people will over estimate what they can do in one day and under estimate what they can do in a year.
Small step done every day will matter more than one big step done once in a while.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
You can build something great doing a few small goal every day.
Take action right now.
Result comes from actions.
You will create opportunities as you take actions.
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
– Milton Berle
Luck comes to you as you are there working on your dream.
If you wait for someone else to build your dream, it will never end.
The causes of your present life are quite large. In there, you have a part in it, even if you think you did nothing. Your choice of doing nothing has influenced the life you are living.
So, instead of living this life, take action to reach for something you really want.
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
– Colin Powell
