Why Are Golfers Not Online?
The reason I am finding many golfers are not regular visitors to La-La-Land (aka ‘The Internet’) is simple. Most golfers work, or run a business of some type. Or…duh!, on the golf course spending the little spare time they have doing what they like to do..playing golf.
Being online or, more importantly, venturing to join an online community is to the mainstream of business people as only something to past time or a platform to market their business. Socializing or networking online has little relevance of interest to most golfers.
Avoid Being Part of the Community
Yes, golfers will come online to find a deal on a new driver, a review on the best golf ball and learn why the grooves on their wedge are illegal. To come online and be part of the online golf community is just not of interest to most golfers. Can you blame them?
With all of the deceptive advertisers, narcissistic promotions, logo people and number maniacs who approach anyone new to the internet like a pack of piranhas, I would probably not come online either if I had not spend a lot of time maneuvering around the Potholes in the Information Highway.
Plus, the time it takes to log on and figuring out what is going is time a golfer would rather spend on the golf course.., again,can you blame them? No!
Purpose is Lacking
Since 82% of the golfing population is in some sort of business and 28% of them are decision makers in a business it makes sense for there to be a place online to network golf and business. However, the place would have to offer shelter from the deception that is rabid online. Plus offer a market of validated likeminded golfers. A business/social network for golfers who are in business and love to play golf.
Now, that would provide a real purpose to come online.
From the hundreds of conversions I have had with grassroots business people around the country who play golf, 85% of those I spoke with say Purpose is lacking for coming, or returning, online for Business/Social Networking. So what I am hearing is golfers have no purpose to join us here in La-La-Land.
Business Golf Provides Purpose to Play Golf
I would be remorse in not mentioning the Business Golf Country Club I founded is one of those amongst the few the only safe, predator free, online golf community for business, professional or recreational golfers. There is true purpose for being a member of the BGCC community and the purpose for being a member of this private club is growing as more golfers join.
There is no argument in the fact the rough economy today is playing a huge part in how golf and golfers are dealing with finding ways to play affordable golf. Discounts to play private country clubs are not enough.
What I have found keeping golfers playing golf is Purpose. Every golfer who tees it up today has a purpose for playing golf. That purpose may have a health purpose, or a social purpose. Nonetheless, they have a purpose.
But what about those who do not play golf, or gave up playing golf because they did not see a purpose in playing? For those people, Business Golf provides the ultimate purpose.
The fact is, nobody, outside maybe some tour players, wakes up each day and mindlessly goes play golf because they have to. However, there is a large number of business people who wake up each day to the fact they need to find someway to improve business and then mindlessly go about using old tired traditional methods of doing business that just do not work anymore.
Business Golf breaks the monotony of mindless process and gives business people a real purpose for playing golf. How?
To answer the How and Why questions, the members of the Business Golf Country Club will be SOON offered an opportunity to find out more about what I and Dave Bisbee are talking about. However, it will be only offered to the members of the BGCC first.
So, if you are interested in finding out more about what will give you a purpose in playing golf you will have to come online and join the SAFE environment of the Business Golf Country Club. If you need a purpose to come online..I just gave you one. See you over at the Business Golf Country Club. I look forward in finding out how I can help.
