I am going to let you in on a little secret……..


Why Nobody Listens When I Talk and How to Shake Off The Dust


When you have inspiring success how would you let others know?


Would you come roaring out and save your people like Moses did and swallow up your enemy in the Red Sea? or use a megaphone and shout from the highest point so everyone could hear?  Blasting away and causing a panic?


Why then would you think that Nobody Listens When I Talk



I want to let you in on a secret I heard…….Are you listening now?


Did you know that visitors and subscribers and readers are REAL People?


Shocking,  Right?


So Why does Nobody Listens When I Talk or  have something to say?  Maybe it just might be the way you say it or come across with your marketing.  My point is that it needs to have value, it needs to have interest, it needs to be something they want.  .


Now that I have your attention I have a few ideas for you to try that might just help you get turned around and on the side where people will tune in and start listening to what you have to say.


Dusting off your feet:.  Just as Jesus said “Any city or home that doesn’t welcome you – shake off the dust of that place from your feet as you leave”.  “I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. Be as wary as serpents and harmless as doves.”  Matthew 10:14:16


There are a few things I want you to start with.  

  1.   Write a letter to yourself
    Listening to the passion for what you do
    Share it from your heart and let others know they can have it too.
  2. Be inspiring and have value in what you are sharing.  don’t just blow the facts and points, give it meaning with useful and helping tips.  Its like giving a dog a treat after it’s been constantly teased.  At first, the dog is waiting anxiously, all excited.  waiting for you to drop the treat.  After a few times becomes uninterested, and then kinda pissed off.  OR  ever heard the story about the boy who cried wolf?
  3. Shake off the dust.   stay emotionally detached from the outcome.  Keeping your focus on the good the value and the inspiration.  Do not  let the emotions of what you want and where you want to go pull you away from the work that needs to be done to get there.

  1. Hi Sandy,

    I will agree that it’s a great idea to stay emotionally unattached to the outcome (of anything really). It takes knowing how to be an observer of your life and yourself…and when those emotions come to the surface, we often forget that they are to be nothing more than messengers commanding our curiosity.

    I also agree with you that there has to be heart and passion involved in our marketing. People still want to connect to people, and I think we feel more comfortable when we can recognize ourselves in others.

    Great tips 🙂

  2. Hey Sandy,

    I never worry about anyone listening. Every so often I wonder if I insult people. I blog about behaviour. I do it as a thought provoking strategy. In order to grow. However as humans – we can read something and identify with it and feel an instant emotion.

    I remain true and believe in that instant emotion. It is a trigger to where work may be required. That is my only odd worry. If I am too kind and people want to use that – they will see where they require work. If someone is insulted by my work then they can learn from it. If they feel any emotion it should be reflected upon.

    I really enjoyed reading this post as it made me question what are my fears are when it comes to traffic at my blog. So thank you.


  3. These are great tips Sandy. Whenever I feel discouraged I do exactly these things, remembering why I started and focus on being passionate rather than looking for the end result

  4. Great post Sandy! When I feel myself getting discouraged I try to use these tips as well. I write down my passions to remind myself why I started and go back to focussing on my love for what I do with the knowledge that the results will follow 🙂

  5. Hi Sandy,

    I think when it comes to marketing I’m a softie. I don’t like to be harsh but I do make sure what I write will show there’s passion for what I’m saying.

    I’m the worst when it comes to writing about myself. I don’t like giving myself kudos and at-a-girls but I do quietly celebrate my achievements.

    When I first started blogging I did feel like no one was listening when I talked. After I changed the tone of my blog posts and started coming across as a real person and not all stuffy, that’s when I started making connections.

    Thank you for sharing your suggestions with us. I’ve never thought about writing a letter to myself. That sounds like a great exercise.

    “stay emotionally detached from the outcome.” That is the best advice I’ve heard in a while :). Although it is good to keep our eye on the prize, we need to stay focused on why we’re doing what we’re doing.

    Great post Sandy. I really enjoyed reading it.

    Take care,

  6. Hi Sandy,

    Grabbing attention of your audience/readers/followers is the tedious task but I do believe with you that they are REAL people. Target your niche and take a small step daily towards your goal and it will turn into huge success some day. But we need to be consistent. Your message is very strong. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post with us.

  7. Hi, Sandy

    Love this post of marketing. Sandy <3.

    In any business, it is important the clients listening to our messages. But no matter how good we are doing our jobs, we can't expect 100% of the clients will listen to us.

    If we ask that question "why nobody listens when I talk?", we are wasting our energy, focus, and attention to the people who will be our customers. Glad that you offered the solution "shake off the dust". We should shift our attention to them who listen our market strategies.

    In so doing, it is also important to find out why they are not listening in order to bring business to next level.

    Have a successful week ahead!

  8. Hi, Sandy

    Love this post about marketing ❤

    No matter how well we are doing our job, we can't expect 100% of listening rate.
    If we ask that question,"why nobody listens?", we spend our energy, our focus, our attention in wrong direction. I would like to use my energy on the clients who are listening. The solution of "shake off the dust"is marvelous.

    On the other hand, we need to reduce the % of the clients who are not listening in order to bring the business into next level.

    Have a nice week ahead.
