Peaceful Cloud Warriors Drive Huge Sales and Marketing Results
What is a Peaceful Cloud Warrior? A Peaceful Cloud Warrior, according to the definition I am now claiming for a new stream of educational content, is any business owner or entrepreneur who leverages amazing, cloud-based technologies to drive huge sales and marketing results. They are predominantly peaceful, meaning they choose not to make war per se. And they deeply desire to accomplish great things in their life and business to make the world a better place.
If you’re not familiar with “the cloud” well, please get on the bus. The cloud according to Wikipedia is…
Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network, typically the Internet. The name comes from the use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it contains in system diagrams. Cloud computing entrusts remote services with a user’s data, software and computation.
So what does Cloud computing have to do with business owners, entrepreneurs and what I prefer to call, ” peaceful warriors?”
In short, a ton. Cloud computing is quickly revolutionizing the way small businesses, solopreneurs and millions of people are able to launch, sell, market and grow successful businesses.
The true, peaceful warrior is in business to win market share, to expand sales and marketing results, to hire more people to work on their team, to invest more in their business and ideally, to make the world a better place.
Think of people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Jeff Bezos to name some of the top pioneers in computing and cloud computing. Where would we be today without peaceful cloud and computing warriors such as these people and many, many others to whom full credit is due?
What you will find is that some people, like me and many of our clients, have completely embraced Cloud computing. And they are certainly peaceful warriors in their approach to life and business.
Call them early adopters perhaps, these are the people who are willing and open-minded enough to invest in, learn and leverage Cloud computing solutions. These are people who for the most part, want to improve their life and the lives of others. That’s big in my book!
The most common Cloud-based computing solutions in my life today include Google apps (Calendar, Gmail, AdWords, Keyword, etc.), Infusionsoft, Audible, Netflix and Kindle, to name a few. You likely have your favorites too.
Why are cl0ud computing solutions so important to those willing to adopt them?
Because these solutions, once you invest in them and learn to integrate them into your business and your life achieve the following three things very, very well…
1. Save you money. Many of these solutions are free or very affordable to own.
2. Save you time. Yes, tons of time for a variety of reasons I will outline in the weeks and months ahead.
3. Get you results. I and millions of others can show you first-hand how we accelerate sales and marketing results by investing in, learning and implementing these solutions.
What is the biggest obstacle to getting these huge sales and marketing results?
You. Well, maybe not you specifically. But business owners and entrepreneurs in general. Sales people too. Have you ever met anyone who will tell you and others that they, “… don’t do email, search engines, etc.?”
The truth is if that properly leveraging these amazing systems into any business were easy and free, more people would do so. I am here to tell you that learning and implementing these systems successfully does require time, money and your attention. Otherwise, you can not expect to drive huge sales and marketing results. Period. (I witness crazy expectations all the time and do my best to help people become aware of their self-limiting beliefs.)
You have to be willing to jump in head first. You have to be willing to commit the time and often the money to not only use the application, but to pay people on your team to make the solutions work for you. Yes, pay people. Talented, knowledge workers who can get the job done. With you often, not always for you.
Did you get the most important aspect of what I just wrote… work “for you.” Yes, for you and with you. Meaning leverage. But you need to be on the bus!
So, no matter what business you’re in today, no matter what you sell, no matter what you market, the Cloud is here to stay and you can either get on the bus or sit on the bench and watch your competition eat your lunch.
And when it comes to being a true, Peaceful Cloud Warrior, the key distinction here in melding the words, “Peaceful,” “Cloud” and “Warrior.”
Most of us have a major definite purpose and mission in getting better sales and marketing results.
And more important that this is we want to make the world a better place.
Are you a Peaceful Cloud Warrior? If not, get on the bus! We need you.
