The Marketing Trap: Perfect Won’t Get You to Profits

  1. Karen says:

    Wow, Melissa! What a right on article. You are absolutely right!

    With all of the online marketing, one can feel pressured to be better or the best before stepping forward. And yet time passes and nothing gets done. And those things left undone do nothing but create negative energy we are now having to carry around!

    But on the flip side, what an emotional relief to let go of perfection, step forward and take care of that which we resist the most. Even if it is not perfect. Allow it to be a work in progress and be amazed as to how getting it done will effect your life in a positive way.

    This hit home for me. My business is a creative one, so I want everything I create, including video tutorials, profile pictures for my Facebook pages, and even FB posts to be ‘perfect’, which they still never quite are! I feel like I’m always running 2 steps behind everyone else, even though I get cutting edge ideas from you, my upline, Brian Moran, and others.

    I know ‘good enough’ will serve me better, and get me out there ‘on time’. Thanks for the push forward.

    Thanks for the reminder again Melissa:)
    It is the wild west out there but I’ve stopped trying to look like the biggest gun in the west.
    So I have relinquished the perfectionism (-ish on certain subjects like video) and I’m on plan Y which only leaves Z to go! One thing that I’m struggling with is that ‘money loves speed’ and I am sooooo slow!! Or it feels like it! My brain and creativity work at a million miles an hour but the step-by-step, set it up and work it through, seems to take forever. Is it chronic?:) Hugs, Jenni

      Jenni P,

      The key is to focus on what you do best and delegate the rest. I know that can be difficult with tight budgets, but essential. Fiverr.com to the rescue.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Melissa, what you say is so true. It is always better to get something out there than nothing while waiting for perfection. Michael.
