This post will help you dispel some of the most popular perceptions or advertising you see and hear in Internet Marketing. Like you, I invested thousands of dollars to learn about starting and operating my Online Business. I was drowning in information by various programs, each program having countless sections on: SEO, Social Media, Email, Web Sites, CopyWriting, Blogging, the list goes on.
My inbox was filled with hundreds of emails from the guru’s/millionaire internet marketers. Also,. from internet training MLMs. I attend in person seminars as much as I can, I always learn something from the speaker in terms of delivery/knowledge even if its just one nugget of information. I meet people who claim to be, “internet marketers”, and are clueless about real online marketing. I asked, these so called, “internet marketers”, if they are apart of a Internet MLM, they say yes. I am writing this because I met an elderly gentleman who is retired and it breaks my heart because these people are putting their hopes and desires into these programs that are brilliant at marketing and advertising–> “easy, simple ways to achieve financial freedom online“. These ads are targeting people who are newbies to the game. They claim they have the system in place for them but then subtly refer to the training they need to implement to be successful so they join because for one hour they have fed their brain with “how easy it is” and showing off their mansions etc… only to learn at the end it does requires education, knowledge, skill, creativity and writing unless you outsource. it does take some money unless you know all these skills yourself.
There are various ways to make money online. What works for me, may not work for you or someone else. I love writing while you are probably an expert in graphic designing or
To become a internet marketer, you have to unlearn what you have
previously learn first before accepting anything new.
Personally seeing people invest their money into illusions has motivated this blog post. The aim of this post will be to clear the fog, doubt, and baseless illusions, once and for all, in this short post.
I do have some **power** recommendations I can make to you that can help
start or build your business, but they would not do you
any good if you still subscribe to any one of the Internet Marketing myths
and illusions, consciously or unconsciously, listed below:
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #1: You can make easy money from the Internet.
We all hear stories of people making 4, 5 and maybe 6 figure incomes in the shortest period of
time. This is true in some cases, there are powerful, wealthy individuals, who made their fortune online. What people do not SEE or HEAR in the success stories is
the hard WORK and EXPERT KNOWLEDGE from EXPERIENCE and TRAINING these hugely successful people USE BEFORE they saw the BIG RESULTS.
It appears they were overnight successes, but I do not think that they
would agree to that. That is like calling a new-found star an overnight success, which I
doubt he or she would think so, after having put in all his or her effort, talent
and dedication for perhaps, the past several years or so.
Being attracted to ads that states “Earn $10,000.00 in 6
months” is what some or most people subscribe to. If you appreciate your
intelligence, you will do well to stay away from ads or programs with taglines like that.
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #2: It is too difficult to make money online
True, it is not going to be easy money, does not mean that it is impossible. It is
not going to be easy, that is a fact. But not impossible, nothing is impossible. ALL is POSSIBLE. JUST TAKES THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE AND THE RIGHTS ACTIONS. If you know what to do and actually do it, you will see progress that leads to big results. There are some people who are working hard online but do not know the right actions or are heading into the wrong direction. They end up feeling like they are wasting their time, money and get de-motivated even faster to quit. They end up back into the workforce.
The people who have the right knowledge and know-how but do not put
apply it, all you get are theories, but no money. I have met people who
are probably working harder than me but earn less, and also those who know
a lot about online marketing, but are not doing nothing to implement.
You need to integrate your knowledge and action to start producing. Ordinary
people like you and me are making money online everyday. So, can
Also, there are more untapped niches you can cater to if you have a strong passion and desire to solve people’s problems in certain niches, and have valuable/expert knowledge from your experiences.
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #3: I must know HTML, programming, and graphic designing in order to start my web site.
I know nothing about programming. By professional standards, I am
not totally well-versed with HTML, either. There are
individuals who nothing about these domains, and earn more a lot, because they either outsource for professional help or establish Joint
Ventures with other individuals who can compensate their lack of
knowledge in any one of these areas.
Most of these successful individuals were not from IT backgrounds. If you want to create your web pages without having to learn: wordpress, programming, HTML and designing skills , I strongly recommend outsourcing.
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #4: On the Internet, there is no need to know how to sell.
This is probably why people who hate selling are attracted to ads that read
“no selling required”.
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #5: You cannot make any real money as an affiliate.
If you have been spamming the public forums and sending unsolicited
mails to bulk mails with your affiliate links inside your emails, then it is true
that you cannot make money as an affiliate, or even if it was your
own service/product. At least, not that way!
Internet Marketing B.S. Statement #6: I do not want to build a mailing list. It is effort, energy, time and money consuming.
That is like saying, “I don’t want to be in business”. Your mailing list is as important to you as tbeing on the front page on Google. Your mailing list is your asset, so why not develop it?
