I’m still shocked at how many people out there claim to be internet marketers, but don’t act like it. We launched Sitizens and I noticed complainers saying things like “It’s just a game?” and “What a waste of time!”.
There are some who get it, and I was glad to see that they did. Real marketers will take something like Twitter, Facebook, Empire Ave, Sitizens, etc and find innovative ways to use the new technology to their benefit.
I think that’s why so many people are struggling to make it online. They are stuck in the 2001 methods of marketing. You need to move with the trends and not be afraid of wasting time.
Can you imagine if you were still stuck with MySpace saying that Facebook site isn’t gonna last and was a waste of time?
Look at Second Life, it’s a game where people are making loads of cash playing it. And it’s all within their system. Sitizens is a game about website loyalty and exploring new websites. As an internet marketer how can you not drool over that?
Still think it’s “just a game”?
