    "Take Action"

    We all hear it's that simple. It really is. Just Take Action.

    Why is it that simple?

    Well, you see, there are statistics for everything, and there are percentages of people who, for example, will NEVER buy, sign up for, or get into the internet as consumers, even if they use it a lot - they will just NEVER do it. You can't fit those kinds of people in or out of any specific niche. Even if there are certain types of things that produce a fickle or even scared crowd, there is that in every bunch you can imagine. So don't take the following words about shoes to heart, this applies to everything you love to cheer or hate and jeer.

    Not every woman likes shoes 'like that'. But we all know at least a couple of women who needs to buy every pair of shoes she's deemed cute or she doesn't feel whole. A lot of people love video games, but we all know someone who has to know Every Single Detail - the levels, where you can go, what you can glitch, how you can cheat, how to experience the game "as it should be" (nvidia woke up that part of the gamer ;))

    The point is that it does not matter what you shoot for as long as you shoot every day, you are going to hit things, and you are going to miss things.

    Here's a real world example: You write ebook method. You put it for sale on webmaster forums. You Will Make Sales Immediately. It will happen. People will get it to share it, people will get it because they are addicted, people will get it just to review it because you wouldn't give them a free copy. The vast majority will ignore your book like the rest of the internet - 5% steady means you are a genius (more than 'good at sustaining business'). 1% is a given - that one percent who is addicted.

    Look, it's not even just the internet. Everyone might buy toys, but only a small percentage by a certain kind of toy, any given type. In that, comes a little group who MUST own every part of the "collection".

    You create something that looks like "the real sites", you WILL convert that site, no matter if the goal is memberships (free) all the way to commissions of physical product sales. You know that because of this basic truth that could be called a law of marketing: If it has an audience, it has an addict. But you know this is about more than addicts.
