Thanks Mark, this is great information. You are always inspiring to listen to. Sometimes I kick myself to see someone younger than me with success so early in life. Makes me kick myself for not being more focused. Keep up the great work.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your post. Like this kind of short video sharing.

Your good points on leverage on those free sites rather than fear about them.

Take care and hope to hear more from you.

Great video. Lots of people fail to understand that to compete they must target the right prospects, not everyone, get their attention and convert them to a buyer. Good question and a great answer.

Hi Mark!

I agree with you. Another thing to remember about many large sites is that locating the information you are searching for can be difficult and time consuming. Simple sites with content direct to the subject matter a person is needing fills a demand.

You are already unique, since we all are unique. Just stand behind your product, offer personalized training, etc, and you will be offering something those free websites may not.

I also believe in customers finding their websites and the personalities matching. Someone who will like my competitor's website won't like mine and vice versa. It's the same phenomenon in off line business. My clients like me because there is something that attracts them to the particular way I do business. My competitor's clients prefer my competitor for the same reason. We all find each other in what sometimes feels a mysterious way...
