Let’s face it, we are all sellers in a way or should I say in multiple ways. We sell when we recommend those things that we love, I know that when we buy something we buy it because we are conviced that it is a good thing, therefore it is easy to talk about it with the people around us. I think that the best way of selling is when you are not even thinking about selling. I remember having different encouters with sales people and how I could feel some sort of unrest as they were trying to convince me, and that is becasue some sales people earn a living like that, yet I don’t like it when someone recommends me something that I am to buy because that other person will get a benefit. What I like is when someone is passionate about something and in describing his/her passion, I am encourage to buy, that I like!
I was reading a post by Mark Hayes tittled “Learn From Some of Shopify’s Top Stores” and as I was browsing through the different Shopify stores that he talks about there and the creative things that they do, I found the Holstee Manifesto Poster which I really like and got inspired to share it here. It made me thing that you actually don’t need a manofactured product in order to sell something, all you need is good ideas and passion.

As you know Facebook owns all the content that gets posted, If you ever thought that creating your own social network is just imposible, think again. The creators of WordPress have been implementing this (of course as Open Source), so what WordPress is for Blogs, BuddyPress is for Social Networks.
I agree with everything that the creator of WordPress Matt Mullenweg says on this video:

– Mass marketing is: “avarege products for avarege people” – [9:34]
– Sell to people who are listening – [11:56]
– What you have to do is figure out what people really want and give it to them – [13:50]
– What you need to do is figure out who does care! – [16:10]
