If you are a golfer you know that when putting that to make a "statement" put you hit it into the back of the cup as opposed to just allow it to fall in so as to tell your opponent that you mean business. I experienced this recently playing with a friend and although it was only a 4 footer I let him know that was a good putt. I'm sure he heard me say "I get what you did and nice play on your part" as opposed to "Nice putt" which is what the actual words were. I appreciate strong competition. As internet marketers we are guilty of not doing that... we often try to stay under the radar so our "competition" does not see us working hard to overcome their efforts. My opinion is that you are playing a weak game and that never plays well in my backyard. I don't have competition... my competition has me as I hit it into the back of the cup as often as possible... I am as aggressive as I can be and I don't care who sees what I am doing as I know that I can out work and out think that other guy and he should be glad that we are in the same niche so he can see how I operate and maybe even learn a thing or two. I was on the phone today with one of my business partners and he reiterated those thoughts albeit using a different analogy and made me realize that is one of the things in the business world that I think of very highly... do not let up and don't worry about letting the competition know that you are going full bore to over come them and their efforts. Commit to your business model and commit hard... be the guy that is throwing round houses as opposed to jabs... be the one that runs harder, throws harder and hits harder and gets results that are better than the other guy. Don't be the guy that allows the ball to possibly trickle in... commit to your moves and commit hard... hit the back of the cup with your putt and make a statement both to your competition as well as to the search engines. You may just be surprised as to the results. BTW, that friend from the beginning of this post took 50.00 of my money from that game and although I didn't like losing I was glad to pay up just based on the authority of that little 4 footer. He hit into the back of the cup with commitment and you have to respect that big time.
