Internet Marketing, you see it everywhere and each Marketer claims to have what you need to succeed “Make tens of $1,000’s working four hours a week” or “Mother of five gets off butt and make over $9750 her first month, working a few hours a week.”
Are these stories really true? Yes, but very rarely. And, those rare stories of success are what dupe so many people into buying product after product, in hopes of finding that ‘magic secret’ to their own success story.
I can’t tell you how many (hundreds) emails I receive every day claiming they have the ‘secret’ I need to find my own success. And, what I’m about to tell you will surely cause me backlash. I might even find myself being blackballed in this industry. But, I’m hoping that won’t be the case. Many of these marketers are great people and have some truly great products (we’ll discuss those later) to assist your pursuit towards success.
And, if I do get blackballed, let the chips fall where they may – I am a firm believer of Karma. My integrity is extremely important to me, and that is why I am about to reveal – what the gurus aren’t telling you.
But, what annoys me the most are those email pitches stating “even a four year old can…” blah blah blah. Or those claiming “anyone who follows these ‘simple’ instructions …” I find these offensive and insulting to my intelligence.
OK, here’s the real scoop: There is NO SECRET that will bring success to your doorstep. However, there are many ‘Secrets’ among some of the top marketers. It’s not a magic formula or a particular software script (90ish% of the time), but rather the ‘who’ is behind you – and whether they are promoting your efforts or not – when it comes to fast cash. They call these IM students “Case Studies” and even sell them to other marketers. Wow, talk about slick! Gotta give them Kudos for great marketing methods – guess that’s why they are called “Gurus” among their peers?
Now on to the real reason most internet marketers fail – they quit too soon. They enter the internet marketing arena thinking they can find fast money. And when they realize just how slim the odds are, they give up!
So, you might be asking at this point if there really is anyone working only a few hours a week, yet bringing in enough money to live the good life – in Internet Marketing? To this I must say: Absolutely YES! Did they find this success in only a few short days? Absolutey NOT, nine times out of ten!
Again, I will stress – Most of the original, successful “Guru” Internet Marketers found success through persistance – and alot of sweat! Only to learn in hindsight – the real secret – is still secret [in a sense] and it’s not what they are ‘selling’ you. Nowadays, if you are fortunate enough, you can become financially successful as an Internet Marketer without having to ‘blood, sweat, and tears‘ your way to that success.
“It’s in the List”
Even if you have been involved in Internet Marketing for only a short time, you have heard that statement many times over. And the truth is: The money IS in the List – to a degree! And this is where a main ‘secret’ begins and ends. Now, if you think about that with some objective reflection – you will figure out what this secret really is all about, when it comes to most of those overnight success stories.
If you have plenty of money at your disposal, your chances of success will greatly increase. But, what about the cash strapped internet marketer?
I am about to use a phrase that I want you to – a) think about, and b) remember where you first heard this phrase: List Lending Promotion
