Karmic Marketing, or, Why Desperate Housewives and Desperate Marketers are Never Happy

I've been mentioning Karmic Marketing for a decade or more. It's high time that I explain what it means.

Here's a quick definition:

Karmic Marketing is giving now knowing that in some way, shape or form you will be getting later.

Here's how it works:

You're rewarded instantly when you give because of the good feelings you get. Those feelings act like magnetizers that will attract more good feelings.

You're rewarded later because of the invisible law that says you will get from giving.

I looked at this topic in my books, The Greatest Money-Making Secret of All Time and Life's Missing Instruction Manual, but I didn't look at it from a Karmic Marketing perspective.

So let me give you an example or two:

This weekend, at Pat O'Bryan's Un-Seminar II, I gave everyone a copy of the DVD of the movie The Secret.

I bought the DVD's out of my own pocket. I didn't ask any money for them. I didn't expect any money for them. I gave from my sincere desire to share.

Later that same night I received an email from Rhonda, the producer of The Secret. She said she was sending me, as a gift, a box of 50 DVD's of the movie.

That's almost twice as many DVD's as I gave out.

That's Karmic Marketing.

At one point during Pat's event, I magically turned a roll of life savers into a hundred dollar bill, and then gave the money to an astonished woman in the audience.

I didn't ask for anything in return.

Two days later, that same woman asked me a question in front of everyone that let me plug my next Beyond Manifestation weekend.

That plug led to my making two thousand dollars in one minute.

That's Karmic Marketing.

The idea is to give freely, from your heart, wanting to share and wanting to help, and not expecting anything in return at all from the people you are doing it for.

You simply trust that your good deed will come back to you tenfold, in time, in some surprising and wonderful ways.

I practice Karmic Marketing here on the Internet by giving people things that I believe they will love, such as an ebook, or a course, or an audio, or a coupon.

On one level it strengthens our relationship.

But on the unseen level, it starts a spiritual circulation.

My giving now -- done from my heart, with no expectation from the people I am doing it for -- leads to getting later.

Karmic Marketing is not done much because too many people are into survival. They are afraid to let go. To trust. They are desperate and they stay desperate because of this lack of trust in life. But once you let go and trust, you step into a flow that is prosperity itself.

This very blog is Karmic Marketing at work.

I write posts here about whatever I want, doing my best to entertain, educate, inspire and inform. No one pays me for this. I could make more money writing a sales letter or a book or a website. But here I am, writing for you.

What comes to me as a result of doing this?

Increased business.

Increased sales.

Increased fans.

Sometimes an Amazon gift certificate.

But I'm not doing it for the end result.

I'm doing it because I want to.

Because I love to.

Because I love you.

PS -- I enjoy the TV show Desperate Housewives, mostly because I love watching Teri Hatcher. (Don't tell Lindsay Lohan.) But Desperate Housewives, like Desperate Marketers, are never satisfied. There's a reason why so many of the episodes revolve around murder and deception. Desperation leads to more desperation. It's The Attractor Factor at work. A better choice would be Karmic Marketing. Give from love. Receive in love.

PPS - This just in: See some cool pictures from Pat O'Bryan's Un-Seminar II over at www.patobryan.com/blog.htm. It was a wonderful time with wonderful people. Thank you, Pat, and everyone who attended. Talk about love. It was in the air.

PPPS - I don't have all the details on my appearance on Larry King. I'll fly out to LA on Oct. 12 for the taping. Jack Canfield will be on the show, too. Larry King may do a two-parter with John Assaraf on another segment. The show is about how to change your life by changing your mind. I'll let you know as I learn more.

Joe,I can't wait to see you guys on Larry King!

BTW, I sent 'The Secret' to a professional fighter who just fought in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships). I told you I would pass the gift on to another who "needed" it, and 2 days later I spoke to this professional fighter (ranked 3rd in the world) and I knew exactly what he needed to get to # 1!!

I will keep you posted :)

Joe,

I want to believe what you are saying here about doing good to others allows more good to flow to you...

but, if this is true then it would mean the same for the "bad" things we do in life- when I hear Abraham talk about "Karma" she says it is a cop out and thruthfully we create our own reality period. Abraham dismisses Karma when ever it is brought up in the seminars. But then again it is used as a negative sense there- what are your thoughts on this?
anyway love your blog keep up the good work

Jonathan, "karma" IS you creating your own reality. Nobody else is doing it. You are.
