Promise: How to Found a Business on “Product-o-cracy”

First, thanks for having me.  I appreciate it.  I would say that the big result we’re looking for today is how to create a business that is founded on what I call a “product-o-cracy”.  That’s actually not discussed in Fastlane.  It’s discussed in the new book that I released, but a product-o-cracy allows business owners to grow virally.  It allows them to grow beyond a linear construct.  Essentially, it puts them in the driver’s seat to, pardon the phrase, “print money.”

A “product-o-cracy” is based upon a unique product offering/service that is not offered by someone else. Click To Tweet A good example of a way to look at this is that there’s always a restaurant in your neighborhood, or in your city, that’s always crowded, but they don’t advertise.  That’s the essence of a product-o-cracy.  It’s when you have a product that is compelled by word-of-mouth and there’s an expansion, so the need to advertise becomes secondary.

A lot of entrepreneurs are not running product-o-cracies; they are running marketing firms.  So if they stop advertising, their business slowly starts to die.  That’s the difference between just a regular old business and a company that’s running a product-o-cracy.  A great example of a product-o-cracy is my book The Millionaire Fastlane.  I think that I must have spent $3,000 in total on promoting it since it was released seven or eight years ago.  The growth was not because I’m some kind of great marketer or because I hacked something.  The growth was because the product was good enough for people to recommend over and over, and that, in essence, is the product-o-cracy.
