Don't be an idiot like me!! OR Don't Do as I DID, Do As I Suggest!
Most people have the patience of a Jack Rabbit.
What they didn't realize is that lack of patience has cost them dearly because the secret to success can be summed up in one word, PERSISTENCE.
Internet Marketing, no matter what program.........private, MLM or other can be VERY confusing. It is so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the next big launch or those highly professional websites OR worse yet, your own emotions! It's hard. Damn hard.
The Internet moves at an incredible speed and you can get swept downstream so fast you and your credit card won't know what hit until that life raft pulls you to safer waters. You want to find something ANYTHING so you too can be successful. If so many others are doing this why not you. Good question and don't lose sight of that. Why Not You?
If you have been on that 'Whirlybird' with several Near Crashes you know what I am saying. You also know that it is the truth. This is not easy and it can get very frustrating and confusing IF you do not have the help and direction you need. And I am talking honest direction. So many of US (yes I am including me ) simply followed what we were told to do. When you are new to Internet Marketing you end of playing follow the leader A LOT! So, in actual fact, the majority was doing just that. Using well written scripts and pretending that You were a leader and it was You who was making all this money you were telling them about.......the goodies in the scripts........You placed those well written Ads and probably in the same place as every other new marketer too! Heck you even paid to place some. Pretty darned expensive too!
I recently read a report about the Dirty Little Tricks that are used and honestly I was feeling just a little sick! Talk about having your eyes opened in a hurry. I always wondered about some of these. Pretty Cute! I suppose you could say it is 'Business' and this is just how it is done! BUT, I think there are other choices we can make. Especially when it involves so many people who seriously cannot afford this nonsense...........never mind what it does to our mindset. No wonder we have trouble convincing people we are about truth and helping each other!
If you are brand new then lucky you! Just don't fall for all the Hype and Free! If you have been at this for a while now and still struggling then you need to know there is a better way and it can be done! Seriously it comes down to finding like minded people to help you AND for you to slow it down and do your homework before joining any more programs. Don't believe anyone who tells you, you have to hurry up and join before the flood of people come in. That's a Lie! It's your dime so ask questions, google the program or opportunity you are looking at and make a qualified decision and be sure this is a good fit for you and your finances. OK..........SO WHAT NOW?
CHOICES and you have a lot of them. The first thing you need to do is sit down and decide just what it is that you would like to do. What is the best fit for you and your situation. You need Direction and you need a Plan of Action.
For anyone who has been at this for awhile you know it is Trial and Error. If you are new find someone who has done the Trial and Error ahead of you......maybe you won't have to do that if you listen carefully. For me it is simply K.I.S.S. I have done the trial and error and actually felt like one of those "Get Rich Junkies" hopping from one program to another. Have you ever wondered why people do that? It is because the matrix, the cyclers, spillovers, straightlines and most other 'money games' fade out rather quickly. I followed a few with my sponsor at the time only to watch that sponsor leave the program for another and convince his contacts to do the same. Funny how we do that! We want it to work so badly that we overlook the obvious and the false promises............ Do they work? Yes, if you are in at the beginning and you have a LIST of fellow marketers to join you. Caution is advised because as good as it looks the money tree does run dry.
SO, WHAT THEN?
Like I said, 'It's Your Dime'...........
1. Affiliate programs are free to join. You will need to know where and how to promote. If you choose Free sources be prepared to stick it out for some time before you see any returns. But does this work....you bet it does! This is your best bet if you have little or no funds available.
2. MLM and Or Direct Sales are not free. You will need to know what you can afford on a monthly product purchase. Most fail due to lack of funds and finding others to join their team in a reasonable time period. IF you are not very good at sponsoring you might want to consider this.
3. Gifting is doing a fast come back. I personally love the concept of gifting. Again caution is advised as all gifting programs are NOT what they seem. For a true gifting experience you should strive for a next in line concept. Some rely on gifting as their soul income all while helping others. Pretty cool concept! Gifting is Private and not a business. Legal........yes, you can give gifts. Gifting is private. I have only a couple that I do endorse. Contact me if you would like any info.
There are NO OVERNITE RICHES or 24HOUR SUCCESS STORIES. Just get that in your head NOW. You will not get paid hundreds of dollars to read emails or to surf other websites or fill out surveys or work from home typists. It is just common sense which we seem to throw out the window when it comes to Internet Marketing. Can you make a living from a home business and using your computer as your main source............YES!
Your first step is to TAKE ACTION......Do Your Homework....ask Questions.....Make your Plan..............GET EXCITED......and try to have some FUN. Isn't this why we choose to work this way?
