“Sir, you always say that the stock market can only grow what we feed it. I see that you have a digital marketing agency. How can you help me grow my income so I can grow my fund allocation for stock investing?” one of our subscribers at Equilyst Analytics asked.
I originally posted my answer in our Private Clients Forum for our clients at Equilyst Analytics.
I’d like to hear your thoughts about what I’m thinking.
It goes without saying that stock trading or investing requires a regular source of income.
Your source of income can be your day-job or business – or both.
Lately, I’ve been entertaining the idea of doing more than just assisting you in your trade and investment decisions.
I’m thinking of personally involving or offering my 19 years of experience in the digital marketing industry to help you grow your income.
Like what I said a few times in the past, the stock market can only grow the money that you feed it.
If you can feed it P1,000.00 per month, that’s what it can only work on.
If you can feed it P10,000.00 per month, you might be able to hit your target investment yield 9 times faster than if you’ll only feed your stock portfolio with P1,000.00 per month.
I don’t need to mention that this yield is subject to a unique yearly market performance, do I?
But are you getting my point?
I’m planning to have a digital marketing program for you if you want to put up or enhance the online presence of your PROFESSION and/or BUSINESS.
I’m also the founder and CEO of iPresence Digital Marketing, Inc. (www.ipdmi.com).
It’s an international digital marketing firm.
I don’t talk much about it in front of my Filipino audience, not even on my Facebook Page, because the Philippines is not our target market for our digital marketing services.
iPresence caters to countries that are far more well-educated on the importance of digital marketing for their business already.
In the US and other first-world countries, even plumbers and nail technicians have a website.
They know the significance of search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), social media marketing (SMM), and more.
When they contact us, we don’t need to do a bloody explanation of why they need to target certain keywords when we write their blog posts for their website.
The majority of them come to us as decided buyers already.
It feels like we’re only selling rice.
Do you need to explain to a normal person what rice is and why it’s edible?
That’s how it feels when you offer digital marketing solutions to people who are aware of the significance of digital marketing for their business.
Meanwhile, some publicly-listed companies in the Philippines, have a jurassic website.
Every time a local sole proprietor approaches me to inquire about our digital marketing solutions, it almost always requires a bloody explanation.
If it feels like I was only selling rice when I was dealing with the other customer, the feeling suddenly changes this time.
It feels like I’m trying to sell a spaceship that whoever rides that spaceship will see Michael Jackson doing the famous moonwalk on Mars.
You think that’s the worst part?
Wait until I tell you this.
After the bloody explanation, they’ll haggle.
After giving them an already-discounted price, they’ll haggle for half of that price.
When you nod and give in to their haggling, you’ll find out later that they have no intention to buy!
Can you excuse me for a minute?
I need to check my blood pressure.
Okay! I’m back!
On a serious note (as though I’m not serious all the time), I’m thinking of an add-on service where I can help you put up or enhance the online presence either of your personal brand or business.
I know I can help you with my 19-year experience in the digital marketing business.
Some of you are students, OFWs, employees, and professionals.
I’ll help you discover which of your present hard skills can be used for you to work as an online freelancer at the comfort of your home.
I can also help you discover what other skills you need to learn to complement your existing skills so you’ll be more relevant to the employers who are looking for specialized skills.
Some of you are entrepreneurs.
Did you know that none of my companies use traditional marketing?
Did you know that I have a 100% home-based business model?
Did you know that I am virtually marketing to hundreds and thousands of people night and day without literally stepping out of the gates of my house?
Did you know that 99% of my website traffic is organic and comes from referrals and social media?
Wouldn’t you like to pick my brain so you can experience the same for your business?
The bottom line is, I’m not trying to get your attention or buy-in to this idea just because I read a digital marketing book 19 days ago.
Digital marketing is literally what I’ve been doing for more than half of my age.
I’m serious. The question is, would you be as dead serious as I am if I become your digital marketing consultant either for your personal brand or business?
However, this is not going to be a one-on-one consultation.
I’m afraid I can’t commit to that.
Maybe I can do one-on-one for 1 to 3 clients only, but I, definitely, cannot do one-on-one mentoring for everyone every day.
This service will be under Equilyst Analytics, still.
It’s going to be a special service for you if you see the value of what I can bring on the table as far as digitalizing your business or enhancing your online presence is concerned.
This will still be connected to stock trading and investing.
I will help you grow your income through this digital marketing consultation so you can increase your buying power for stock trading or investing.
I’m thinking of a quarterly 2-day workshop on a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and dedicated section in our Private Clients Forum (at Equilyst Analytics) for this discussion.
The first day can be about the stock market and business.
The second day can be about psychological and spiritual nourishment.
Psychological and spiritual nourishments are very important elements of success.
I’m not giving you a cliche. I say that from experience.
I’ll be inviting experts for the psychological and spiritual nourishment part.
Still, I’m going to do this my way.
What’s my way?
I teach as a practitioner of what I say, and not just as a lecturer, a theoretician, or a motivational speaker.
What do you think?
Can you tell me in the comments if you would like to be part of this group?
What are your suggestions to make it more personal, effective, relevant, and useful for you?
Please tell me in the comments.
