If you have ventured into Team Unity to kick start your online business, it doesn’t take you long to realize that I, Lobo Clark, am a little on the nutty side. I come into points of thought where, and tell me if you have been here; Writer’s Block! I have thought so long and hard about a topic, brainstorming, that eventually I run out of any info I could have squeezed from the topic. The synapses in my brain need a battery charge. I crave more information so I can keep progressing you along. I can’t slow down, I’ve just started speed walking! I will continue to think of any crazy, new-angled, out side the box, feet stomping, high-fivin’, jaw dropping idea I can keep throwing your way to see what your opinion is.
The truth is, the more research I do, the more I realize that maybe perhaps my idea isn’t in fact original. It probably has been done, and is being done in others practices we just don’t know about. There are probably many groups out there just like us, trying to change the world, one click at a time. As I have said in the past I never would have imagined even 5 years ago, I would have grown into a knowledgeable, support figure with people that actually wanted my lessons. I guess it was the crazy idea that came up on my long 2400 miles round trip drive from the SFI conference last August which sparked my desire to use Skype for questions and how important it was. Ironically, Keith Mills had the same idea and formed the Level 4 Communication Group. The very first question that started the group was made from Linda Wright, and then the crazy ideas started? Why not help anyone in SFI?
It is amazing how computers help advance what once was a crazy idea, into a multi-billion dollar companies in less than ten years. Imagine that pocket change? $100 dollar bills would be like a penny. Imagine how the top guys of these companies felt…most are a rag-to-riches story or some crazy college kid’s idea. Their ideas started small and blossomed beyond compare. Let’s discuss a couple of the more popular free methods for advertising utilizing these guys crazy ideas, I am sure you have probably heard of at least one.
YouTube was started in 2005 by three guys that worked at PayPal. It quickly grew in popularity and it didn’t take long for them to get joint venture funding. Just a couple bucks..11.5 Million, chump change right? It didn’t take long for Google’s eyes to see what the potential of profit they could make from ads alone, i.e. adwords, to snatch that idea up in about 8 months for a cool 1.65 Billion dollars. I would have been dancing on the roof!
Another crazy idea probably started in a college dorm room in between breaks of study at Harvard University. There was a kid named Mark Zuckerburg that created a way to keep in touch with his fellow students, or a cataloging if you will. Since he had been creating various programs most of his life on the computer, he really didn’t think anything more of his page than a hobby. That page blew up the servers at Harvard and was banned quickly. Rumors quickly spread through colleges like wildfire about this great program where you can connect with people you know, and people you don’t know. Heard of it, Facebook? Nearly half of all Americans have a Facebook page. In 8 years, Facebook worth has increased to 108 Billion USD. Mark Zuckerburg’s personal monetary worth is 9.4 Billion. Wow.
People love blogging and talking about themselves and every topic under the Sun. In 2006, someone thought of an idea that revolutionized blogging forever. The original idea for the site name was actually Friend Stalker! You mean it’s even more possible to stalk somebody more than Facebook? Someone had to create speed blogging, and in less than 140 characters. Short, sweet, to the point. Up until now I have tried to avoid twitter. I really didn’t want to know about the color, frequency, and consistency of someone sitting on the porcelain god. In two short years after the company was founded that it jumped to the 3rd highest ranked networking site online. They went from 400K tweets per quarter in 2007, to 340 million tweets per day!
It may be a far stretch and hope that Team Unity could progress to something off this magnitude. My outlook regarding their success is, “If they can do it, Why Can’t I”? Hope to see you at the top.
