There are no shortcuts in life. No definitive formulas that work at all times to increase a market by 2x in 2 weeks nor a quick-and-fast way to create a high-performance marketing or sales team. Focusing on shortcuts is seeking a marketing magic, a viral certainty, or an exploit that transforms a market overnight.
You can waste hundreds of thousands and postponed years of required work as a result of chasing shortcuts. The cost of these diversions add up further with the hidden opportunity cost. Especially given the fact how fast today’s markets are growing and changing.
J.R.R. Tolkien wrote in Fellowship of the Ring: “Short cuts make long delays.”
Simple tricks may appear to work sometimes, but can it be repeated reliably by anyone, anytime?
