Be an Online Marketing Warrior – Your Warrior Theme

You guys know I’m normally a pretty tame person. I get enthusiastic and I have a very optimistic view on life. Every once and a while you also get to see my more fierce side and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of what I call “warrior mode” in the future. Why? Because tomorrow is my 25th birthday and I’ve been doing a lot of re-examining. I’m ready to take my business up a notch and I’ve identified a few things that need to happen.

  1. I need to start outsourcing more often AND more readily. Right now I only outsource when I really need to like for graphics. I minimize how much outsourcing I do and take care of almost all of the work on my own. There isn’t enough time in the day to do everything I want to do in that case. I need to hire a writer or two to take the load off on some of my projects.
  2. I need to actually release my info products. I have a few half written or more products that I never finished off and released. Why? Who knows. Maybe I’m afraid they won’t sell. Why? The worst that happens is that I don’t sell any. How is that different than now? I gotta put my stuff out there. Besides, I know I’m the type that will do everything I can to make sure buyers get their money worth and I need to give people a chance to see that.
  3. I need to put more time into my PLR shop. I love my PLR shop and I still make sales. It deserves some real attention like new packs and I need to get back to emailing that list regularly. I actually spent time writing a new pack about video game accessories that I’m releasing on the 15th. (I won’t really be working tomorrow besides posting up some blog posts since I’ll be out for my birthday.)

So, it’s time to get into “warrior mode”.

What is Warrior Mode?

The answer may be a bit different for each of you, but for me it’s my no-nonsense mode. I’m diving in head first and I’m fighting tooth and nail to get what I want. When I say “warrior mode” you know I’m getting serious. Normally it’s reserved for when I’m having some financial difficulties, but not anymore. There is no point in waiting until I’m in trouble to get serious.

Do you have a warrior mode? What does it take to get you there?

To me warrior mode is that moment when you believe in yourself so much you’re willing to truly fight for what you want or need. Notice the word “fight”. Normally I would use the phrase “work for what you want or need.” No, that’s the difference here. It’s not just working, it’s fighting. Sometimes that’s what it takes.

My Warrior Theme

I was watching some comedy videos on YouTube with some friends and we saw this video that was meant to be a silly parody of a bunch of different things but the song in the background really hit me. It says perfectly what I feel when I get serious like this. It also gets me in the zone I need to be in.

It’s the chorus specifically.

(Warning: There is some strong language at the beginning.)

Here are the lyrics to the chorus that really get me going:

Look me in the eyes, you know damn well what I’ve been trying to telling ya – that I won’t back down. I guess you’ve got me confused with somebody who loses because I won’t back down.

I don’t know about you but I thought those were pretty powerful lyrics for comedy video. That’s the attitude I’m going to be going forward with.

Do you have a “warrior mode” or a theme that really gets you going?

  1. Ahh.. so my Skype was right, it is your birthday! Happy Birthday and I hope you have a fab day!!

    I love this: “I have a few half written or more products that I never finished off and released. Why? Who knows. Maybe I’m afraid they won’t sell. Why? The worst that happens is that I don’t sell any. How is that different than now?” So true!! Argh I can say the same to myself about my half-finished Kindle books and other projects.

    I really need to get into Warrior Mode too. I’ve been having a slump for the past week for some reason. Time to kick it up a notch again! I am running a really big PLR sale next week so that should help kick me into gear.

    • Awesome! I’ve got some PLR ready to release. I’m going to get back to a regular release schedule because my shop makes me money and there is no reason to let it sit there and stagnate. I’m also going to quit dancing around releasing an info product and just get it out there! If everyone loves it that’s awesome. If they don’t I’ll be able to learn from it.

  2. I don’t have a “warrior theme” but I need to get one! I’m in a similar position with some things I need to get done to take things up a notch.

    Hope you have a fabulous 25th birthday, Amanda!

    • Thanks! I’ve been taking a hard look and realizing that I’m letting some of my best projects not reach their true potential. I’ve gotta put an end to that. It’s like working a job for years but only putting in the minimum so you never get a raise or promotion. I keep my projects going but I don’t push them to the next level.

  3. That’s a great song, Amanda. Definitely puts some steel in your spine.

    You must have been reading my mind when you mentioned #2 and #3. Those are both things I’ve been meaning to get around to. Life keeps getting in the way, but I’ve got to find ways to power through.

    I like your warrior mode! I’ll be looking forward to seeing where it takes you.

  4. Hi Amanda,

    First, happy birthday! And that’s the spirit! Why wait if you can start right away.

    I know a lot about Warrior Mode. That is what keeps me going when I begin to lose my track. When I am in the mode nothing can stop me.

    Wishing you all the best and a very successful year.

  5. Happy birthday Amanda! I don’t have a warrior mode and need to get one! I have some ideas for my own products. I’m going to flesh those ideas out before I have surgery next week so I can start work on them as soon as I’m able. I now have hubby working on articles for my PLR store, I want to have that up and running by the end of June. Keep me to that date – if I’m not selling PLR by then you can unleash your warrior onto me. 🙂

  6. Happy belated birthday, Amanda. I admire your drive and your tenacity. I think you do a great job and I know that life has handed you some lemons. I’m working on some things, just so slowly it seems that I’ve stopped.
    Great blog post. Thanks.

    • Thanks! Everyone’s life has their own lemons. Some are a bit more sour than others but everyone has struggles and learning to overcome them is one of the big challenges in life.

      I know that feeling. It happens to me from time to time… it feels like you’re working hard but there isn’t much progress to be made. I hope you figure out what’s keeping you from getting where you want to be!

  7. I hope that you had a fabulous birthday! I go in and out of warrior mode and I don’t know why. Sometimes, I have complete clarity and focus, but most time I don’t. Thanks for sharing about how you get there. Do you mind emailing me when you get a chance? I have a couple of questions for you.
