Why is it so many smart social media and digital marketers claim they want to lead or are already leading their industry and niche? They write blog posts, record and publish videos, webinars and podcasts teaching and preaching others how to build a unique brand or how to have ultra success overnight. They talk about differentiation and how to stand out from the crowd.
However, when you do the "double click" and take a deeper look at their strategies, tactics, and content you may see it's truly lacking differentiation. They have become a spitting identical image to everyone else.
Too often they are chasing shiny object, have a deep rooted fear of missing out and end up wasting cycle after cycle on social networks, technology and tactics that simply are not even appropriate for their business. They forget who they are serving, such as their customer and audience as they get caught up in social media fame and being the first to make the leader board on a social shiny object.
Unfortunately many of them don't have close to the results and success they claim to have, yet they paint this picture that their "unique" methods work and that for the low, low price of $99 you too can be rich and famous if you buy their magical super powered class.
Even worse most of them don't know how to measure results. Many don't know the basic data and analytics when it comes to their blog or website traffic, conversion funnels or even social media community engagement. They lack basic business, digital marketing and social media marketing knowledge and experience.
The truth is that the real rebels are the leaders who trade in fear of missing out for focus. They know how to work smart, not just hard. They know the key to success is smart hustle, not just working 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Success requires a healthy mind, body and spirit.
