|Why Doing The Small Things Is So Important|

I just wanted to share with you something that happened yesterday, as it confirmed something which we all know but sometimes forget.
I was going through my e-mails and opened one from Web Biz Insider. It is one of Matthew Graves new relaunches on his 'Your Viral Network'. It is a mailer and traffic exchange and I am just a free member there. I clicked on the link to see how many credits I had there and only had 850 available but was allowed to send a mailing. With such a small number of credits I nearly didn't bother (I never normally send to less than 1,000) but thought what the hell and sent it anyway. I sent a mail about my latest launch AdListProfits .
About two hours later I had a ping on my Iphone, closely followed by another ping. I had sold a double upgrade. (at AdListProfits there is a main one time offer, followed by an optional further upsell). I had earned $64 profit as well as getting a new subscriber to my list. When I checked my stats only 4 people had opened my Web Biz Insider mailing, but one of them was the RIGHT person.
The point of retelling this story is that it reinforces the idea that ALL activity is important and EVERY credit we have available at every mailer, safelist and traffic exchange could potentially lead to a sale. If you send only ONE e-mail then it can still result in a sale if it happens to land in the right inbox. So, never dismiss what seems a small or trivial activity. Always be on the lookout to promote your offers, however small the audience. You can send out to over 70,000 (for example as I do at Herculist every day) and get back nothing, or you can send out a couple of hundred mails and get a result. You just NEVER KNOW where that next sale is coming from (if any of us knew how to predict that we would all already be multi-millionaires!).
So, keep doing the small stuff and the bigger picture will take care of itself. Never dismiss any activity as trivial as every single activity contributes to the bigger picture. Sooner or later you will get your reward.
I got more pleasure from that one signup than any that come from my regular mass mailings as it reminded me of that oh so important lesson.
Hope that was useful.
