Hello Creators, today, I am a new man.
I want to share a quick story/achievement with all of you, in hopes that it may inspire you.
Have you ever wanted some huge company to support your social network? Have you ever though, "Yeah, but I can't just call up the CEO and say hi, how's it going..."
I'm writing to tell you that yes, you can!
I run a photographer's social network, and I thought to myself, sure, I only have 100 members, but imagine if Canon or Nikon endorsed my network?
Seems like a dream right? Seems impossible?
Do yourself a favor, choose the company you want to endorse you, put together the best presentation/package that you can muster, and pick up the phone, send an email, or walk right into the company.
Most people have the thought that major company CEOs and Presidents don't bother with the little guys, they have their agendas. But that's just not true!
I called and emailed both Canon and Nikon, hoping they would work in CREATIVE ways with me, not the standard "I'll advertise you, give me money."
This morning, and 7:30 am, I was woken up by a Nikon Representative of the Board, and for the half hour I talked to her, she was on my network, asking questions, taking notes, and seemed very interested. She declared that she is going to bring the information that she gathered up in a Nikon Board Meeting later today!!!
NEVER give up, and NEVER doubt yourself. You can achieve great things if you JUST TRY.
