Default “Newfangled” vs “Old school”...

Hi Gordon,

What I see a lot of now is related to new technology, such as social media... What I don’t see much of is...

Perhaps what they might call “old school” stuff. But you know, it still works. Sales skills, that get people to *buy*...

If you know this, you have an advantage over many of the people out there!

With the “newfangled” knowhow, you can get a lot of “eyeballs” looking at your stuff (if you pay the dollars to spread it, or can get it to go viral)...

But it’s the “old stuff” that will often get them to whip out their credit cards (or put in their PayPal or Stripe details) and *buy*...

So, I’m glad when people ignore “old school” stuff. Because it gives me an advantage...

I’m all for ignorance! (Other people’s that is...)

Best wishes,
