Stop. Running. Start. Learning.
There's a phrase in the internet marketing world which also applies to the wow niche called "push button marketing." What push button marketers do best is get your attention by writing eye catching titles such as "1500 gold per hour farming" or "Best Gold Tip in World of Warcraft," and then they play on your emotional reaction to get you to purchase something. They want you to spin that hamster wheel and keep coming back for more of their "new and best" tips which only leaves you hungry for more and never satiated. You're a thrill seeker looking for your next thrill. Since each new thrill does not remain the 'best' for very long, you abandon your current strategy at the first sign of a supposedly better one.
I don't want you to spin that hamster wheel any longer. I want you to step off and stop running for a moment to do a handful of things:
- Stop to catch your breath.
- Take an inventory of what characters you pocess, profession specific recipes you've aquiried, the level of your characters, your connections with guildmates/friends and anything else you can find on your account which could help you make gold.
- Start with one strategy at a time, but build upon them. Multitask. Don't just make netherweave bags, but instead look into finding additional sources of income for your gold making portfolio. Can you move into glyphs? How about belt buckles?
- Develop systems for a daily routine and how you approach selling each type of item on the auction house as well as buy the materials to support these business endeavors. Can you improve your selling and buying methods?
So how bout it, want to take a step off the hamster wheel of gold tips or would you like me to install a stronger motor? Eventually you will burn out and either give up on making gold or decide to change your mentality. Up to you, but while I'm your host, care for a toilet paper cardboard roll?
