No. Like I have said before, nothing is guaranteed. However you have more of a chance when you are directly marketing your opp
I'm seeing your point very clear now Alex. It is a point that I KNOW many other people feel and I'm glad you brought up the subject.
I directly market several opportunities. "Direct" meaning I create content about a specific problem or subject that is targeting people with that specific problem and offer a specific solution.
Who will be attracted to that? ONLY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE PROBLEM THAT PRODUCT CAN SOLVE.
They click the link from the content to a sales page and the sale gets closed either right there or over the phone at a later date.
Then I do it all over again with different products and services. That is my daily MO.
Sometimes I'll create new content and sales happen immediately, sometimes it takes multiple views, deepening the relationship or heck, my content may SUCK! lolol and I have to tweak it.There is not form of marketing that is more direct
than Attraction marketing
. It's actually so laser targeted, yet subtle that most people miss it.
Like JM said if you/your message are not in front of the right people your not going to attract action. It's like trying to catch a lion with lettuce!

That is most likely considered spam around these parts
Which it isn't because this links are directly relevant to this post. If it adds value and it is not solely self promoting then it's good.
I'm curious to know where you are getting your marketing training, if any. Do you not know anything about target markets, supply vs. demand, or identifying a niche? Do you own a copy of MS?
If money is an issue, buy it, read it
and return it. Mike's team is really great on giving refunds so You have nothing to lose.
Maybe a friend (like Lee) will be willing to share the cost with you
If you're close to Eric Walker, take his class at the library.
I sense your frustration is largely based on a misconception of what attraction marketing is or even what attraction (of any kind) is all about. A course on human psychology will also serve you well.
When I first got started with attraction marketing I went to Yahoo!Answers and answered a bunch of peoples questions with in my expertise: real estate, business, financial and telecom.
My sole purpose was to be chosen as the "best answer" by the complete stranger who asked the question.
Because you get to include a resource box that you can put your affiliate, website(s) and even sales page links, that's why.
AND as a bonus, anyone from that time how types that same question into yahoo search engine finds my "best answer" along with my links... a year later those good quality answers still pay my bills
