Definitely there is no question about it. There is money on the internet. Even there are so many ways to make money online. And if you aren’t doing it yet, it’s like you’re missing the boat!
Millions of information products like ebooks etc. are sold on the internet based on the single compelling gospel: earn money quickly! Make money quickly even from the comforts of your home. And for a beginner eager to do internet marketing, it’s a temptation not so easy to resist.
It’s nice that internet marketing has produced so many millionaires.
Definitely, we would like to be one of them soon of course, if at all it’s possible.
There is just one basic problem about internet millionaires though. We get to hear from them first hand only from the information products they are selling. Their stories, sort of rags-to-riches type, are written just from their own point of view. We are hard put to confirm the completeness of their accounts from independent sources.
Their marketing promotion is of basically the same tune and it runs something like this: “I have perfected a marketing system that makes so much money online in a record time. My marketing strategies have been proven to really work. If I can do it, you can do it too! ”
Well, we don’t dismiss any of their claims to successful marketing. In fact, we accept them without question sometimes. Thus, so many of us beginners have fallen prey to well-researched marketing advertisements. Their entire promotional programs are based on extensive marketing research databases. Such a solid business strategy can only result in the conversion of a hesitant customer into a willing consumer in an instant.
We have to read between so many lines in order to find the complete truth in internet marketing. That means we have to search wide into so many webpages in so many websites. Buried deep in the internet are the other half of their success stories. Because the fact is they became success stories, a lot of them at least, only after years of serious work and hard labour. We can sense that initially their internet marketing ventures were “failures”. Theirs were not an overnight success, period.
It is a therefore a pleasant breath of fresh air when the basic rule for beginners in internet marketing is announced: Stop buying stuff! Do not buy into any online business opportunity unless of course you have a good understanding of what you are buying into and why.
