Never Throw Business Away
By Debbie Allen, International Business Expert and Motivational Speaker
While writing my book, Confessions of Shameless Internet Promoters, I contacted dozens of Internet marketing experts from around the world. During just one hour via e-mail, I had written to and received e-mails from all over the US, Canada, Mexico, the UK and Australia. That is five countries around the globe in just ONE HOUR. The power and the access to the world is now available to all of us at lightening speed.
Here’s an example of how the amazing power of the Internet can find endless opportunities: A year ago, I had a client in Australia that was in search of another speaker like myself that is an expert in marketing and retail, but that lived in Australia. Since I live in Phoenix, Arizona US, I did not know a soul in Australia, much less a great speaker in the same niche market and the same topic of expertise my client was looking for. But, following my motto to “Never Throw Business Away”, I set out to find my Australian client a dynamic expert that lived in her country.
First, I did a search on Yahoo – Australia. Since my site comes up very high on the search engines and directories when typing in the keywords retail speaker, I was surprised that another speaker appeared first on the list. John Stanley – who is this John Stanley I thought. I clicked onto his site and viewed it in great detail. I discovered that I had some tough competition on the other side of the world. Not only was John an expert in retail, he was the perfect fit for my client. So I sent him an email with the client’s contact information. Now you may be thinking, why would you send your client to your competition? Read the rest of the article.
