The bell shaped curve affects all trends. The 15.75% of businesses and investors that really get ahead are the early adapters. They gain the largest rewards.
Bell shape curve… 15.75% get in ahead of the trend.
You can get ahead because a new trend is on its way. This is an era of rapid disruptive change that hits even the giants. In fact the bigger they are… the more vulnerable they become. Amazon.com for example has turned huge industries upside down… and knocked booksellers, publishers and many retail businesses to their knees, but is Amazon.com the giant that will stumble next?
Self publishing at Amazon.com is evolving. The idea of simply publishing and just waiting for royalties to roll in, is well along the bell shaped curve. Amazon will be with us for some time… but new technologies that can disrupt Amazon.com are already on their way.
What’s Next? Huge Profits For the Early Adapter
Amazon.com will change. The firm has incredible income but small profit. Amazon.com is the 1,000 pound gorilla when it comes to selling books. For how long? Just when everyone thinks they have the system figured out… a new disruption comes along. Ask the guys at Borders or Barnes & Noble! Wait… that’s right. I forgot. Borders is gone. Barnes & Noble’s revenues decreased 8 percent in 2013 so it could also be on its way out.
An article at MIT Technology Review titled “Why the Father of the Consumer Internet Invests in E-Commerce” shows one way that internet publishing and e-commerce are evolving. The article says: Steve Case brought the Internet to Main Street. Now he wants everyone to open an online store. Case is no buzzword-dropping futurist. He’s practical, with a sharp eye for Main Street’s needs and, he says, “big ideas that are still small companies.” Its largest investment, $40 million, went to BigCommerce, a company that brings “Amazon-like capabilities” to any merchant. The pool of potential customers is huge: 95 percent of retail establishments in the U.S. consist of a single store.
Be a Micro Amazon.com
This is the new trend rising… small companies with Amazon.com like capabilities. Early adapters have a chance to get ahead of this trend by mastering the 7Ps.
Our personal consultations walk you through how to profit from a micro business, using the 7Ps.
The 7 Ps are “For Certain” principles in this uncertain world.
The 7Ps are Passion – Problem – Person – Product – Prospecting Path – Promise – Presentation and go beyond change. Whatever disruption new technology brings, the 7Ps create opportunity because they identify, reach, engage, focus and solidify customers at a profit.
The Ps are really important to any writer, publisher or micro business because they transcend all forms of technology. They are a constant in an ever changing world.
The 7Ps reflect an immutable logic that worked in paper based publishing before computers. They worked with computerized Cheshire labels. The 7Ps worked with jet printing on envelopes and personalized emails. They work for websites and blogs. Our Writer’s Camp and Online Self Fulfilled delegates and Event Full subscribers are using the 7Ps successfully right now at Amazon.com and in numerous micro businesses.
Learn how to earn extra income by combining the 7Ps in a micro business that is supported by self publishing and writing to sell.
Merri and I speaking to over 400 delegates in Quito, Ecuador
Merri and I speaking to a dozen delegates at our farm office in North Carolina.
Merri and I have been using the 7Ps for over 45+ years. Since May 1968 we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have known how to write to sell and monetize the publishing success with events, seminars, courses and tours.
The combination of self publishing working hand in hand with an events business has allowed us to visit and to live anywhere in the world we have desired. Many of our course delegates are using the 7Ps to enjoy great profits and lifestyle as well.
One reader sent me this note:
“Gary, I participated in a Home Party last week and sold $253 worth of Ecuador goods that I brought back on my trip there last November. That makes a total of approx. $450 in random sales so far which comes real close to paying for my airline ticket. I still have a nice inventory, so will work on selling the rest.”
This reader is using an events based micro business to generate income that pays for foreign travel.
A personal consultation allows you to personalize your micro business so you can start small and gradually build a larger business (if that is your desire) as we have done.
There are many fringe benefits to a personal micro business. In our case, almost all of our global travel has been tax deductible for decades.
The pay has certainly not been bad either. We have earned millions so our micro business has provided us financial independence.
Yet the income has been a small part of this adventure. The expanded horizons… the people we have met… the adventures we have shared… the tens of thousands of delegates we have enjoyed and hopefully helped…. the poor we have served… the freedom we have felt… to be able to go where we desire and come home, when we desire, with more than when we left.
Gain income generating synergy.
We have created a special program so readers can have a personal consultation so they can personalize their micro business and get started quickly.
Over the years, Merri and I have done business in… (alphabetical order) Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary (before the Iron Curtain came down), Indonesia, Isle of Man, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Nevis, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and at one time or another most of the United States and even more.
There is a possibility that Merri and I know more about having a small, at home internet driven micro business conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world.
