Sell your products like a pro by avoiding these basic mistakes
A year and a half ago, I started the habit of writing once a day. As a logical software engineer, this was no cakewalk. I managed to do it because I learned from extremely talented people who had years of experience.
I found most of these people on Medium and I’ve analyzed what worked for them and what didn’t.
Due to that process, I greatly accelerated my growth, getting published after 5 days and becoming top in seven categories in 23 days.
Today, I get between 150,000 and 200,000 views every month. Not bad for a non-native English speaker and non-creative person!
Realize that your limitations are in your brain. You are more capable than you think you are.
But that’s not the main point of this story.
Today, I received an email update from one of the writers I aspired to be back in January 2018, Anthony Moore.
He is launching a book next month and a course this week. I know it will be fantastic. I learned from his articles on writing and from a previous course he did. Part of the reason I am where I am today in writing is because of his teachings.
So, it’s going to turn to gold for him, right?
I certainly hope so for him because I know the value he’s bringing and how hard he worked on it.
The reality is that there’s a chance it may not do that well. An amazing product or service does not guarantee success. Building it is about half the battle; selling it is at least the other half.
And even though he’s got a very decent-sized audience, it may flop. I’ve been there. I know he has been there too.
To add to that, I’ve seen the exact same happen to my friend and successful writer Ayodeji Awosika. During an interview I did with him, he confessed that a course he worked on for months yielded zero sales.
Where do most of us fall short?
It turns out that there are four simple classic sales principles.
