OUR TIME TO SHINE - Will Antiques and Collectibles be Good to You ?
We now know what we are facing, but how can we go to the head of the class? What must we do different than others? Is it possible to do the things that Daryle says we can?
So many questions. So where do I start in answering them? The truth wouldn’t hurt ... I don’t think. So here goes.
The way we are going to the head of the class is the simplest part. We are going to be smarter and better prepared than most. No matter how long it takes, the 31 Club will provide its members with the information they will need to be as successful as they can see themselves being. By using time management, combined with sufficient knowledge, there will be no one that will be able to match you as your future in Antiques and Collectibles unfolds before your very eyes.
Having the herd mentality will only lead you to failure, so we must work together as a group to set ourselves apart from the rest. We will not be seen as Chicken Little, but as the new voice of our industry. In the future, just saying that you are a member of the 31 Club will command respect, because all will know that your preparation has been done, and you have the full force of your club behind you.
If you have been following the blogs, by now you should have no doubt that the plan that we are following together works. As our numbers grow, we will become a mighty force to be reckoned with. Yes, we will all be working for each other rather than just ourself, and I will be telling you how very shortly.
I come from a farm family, and for most of my early life I saw individual farmers complain that the market was taking advantage of them by always lowering the prices for their products at harvest time. You may ask, how does this apply to us? That's exactly what I am going to show you.
You see the farmers banded together to form co-ops were they could store their products such as grain, meat, milk, and so on. Now the time of year has very little to do with their sales, because now they can hold their items until the market price is fair, and this gave them the upper hand. Today most farmers get fair prices in the market place because of the action that they took together.
Auction houses, eBay, and estate sales conductors hold our very success in their hands, but together we can change that. If auctions charge commissions that are unfair, going from 5% to as much as 50% over the last fifty years, this might be considered too much. e-Bay is increasing their fees every month just so that their stockholders will remain happy and that may not be fair to us. Estate sales are charging retail or better and if items don’t sell, they get sent to auctions that could be questionable as to the way we are handled. But what can we do about these and so many other things that might put us at a disadvantage. You guessed it! We must band together and act as the farmers did so many years ago. But how can this happen?
Your Club has been assembling all the parts necessary for us to accomplish this very thing for several months now. First, the book “31 Steps to Your Millions...” was written to give you a plan. Next, came the other parts that would free us from the hands of others. One of which is the marketplace where you may find items to fill orders that you have received from your customers.
Have you looked to see what is offered on our marketplace? These items can be bought with no commission tacked on so I would think that your customers would be very happy about that. If the prices are a little too high for you, then make an offer. Most of the things being listed are very reasonable. In fact some of the pieces may even be bargains. You may be surprised at the response to your offers.
Next, do you have something to sell and have you posted it on our market place? Ten percent commission is the most that you can be charged if you use this service. How does this compare with the up to fifty percent that you will be charged by others? Calculate your savings and see if that interests you.
The more items listed by us on the 31 Club’s website - the more people will search there for their future purchases. Our success is almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more we help others the more we help ourselves. Isn’t that great? It almost sounds as if it came from the Bible. Now we control our own destiny, and I guarantee you, this will be noticed in the markets.
To be successful with this plan, we must buy something. There is a wish list where you can post the things that you are searching for, and when responses come in, they will be directed to you. Wow! Free advertisement. Can you imagine that?
We will continue to grow these services and so many more will be coming your way. Also we are constantly looking for ideas that will help our Club members. Do you have any?
Working together, we can make a difference, and we will. If you're not already a member of the 31 Club join now before December 31 and be a life member. www.31corp.com or www.amazon.com and enter daryle lambert.
