Internet Marketing – What I’ve Learned…
It’s been quiet on my watch when I go to the firehouse. But that doesn’t mean that the City Of Camden has been quiet. There have been about 4 fires last week alone! They say that there isn’t anything left to burn. But apparently they are wrong. Anyway I wanted to give you a little insight into the whole “Internet Marketing” thing while I’m here.
First of all, I.M. is just like anything else out there. You NEVER stop learning. When you think that you’ve learned everything, that’s when it’s time to leave it alone. Why? Because NO ONE except GOD Almighty knows everything! Internet marketing, just like everything else out there is a learning experience. But the only difference is that with I.M. some people are afraid to implement what they’ve learned.
I myself am still learning almost 3 years later. Some people don’t take the time to continue learning, and that’s why they fail. Some people don’t implement what they’ve learned, and that’s why they fail. Contrary to popular belief, you WILL NOT make 10,000 over night! There is no quick fix to the situation that you’re in. If you have chosen I.M. to “get out of debt” or to “get rich quick” then I’m sorry to tell you this but, you’re sorely mistaken. The only way in this world to get rich quick is to win the lottery!
Many people believe those ads that they see that tell you that “…you’ll make 50,000 in 6 months if you follow these 3 simple steps!” What the creators of that crap fail to tell you is that that business model is the best selling crap on the Internet! Why? Because we all want a “quick fix.” We all want to get that cash now! But just like your Mom and Dad told you a long time ago: It takes hard work to make it! And many people don’t want to do the hard work. They want the money now!
The people that make that crap are making money off of your hopes and dreams and the “get it right now”, “4g” “ultra-fast” mentality of today’s generation. Yeah, they may be making a lot of money. But what they have failed to tell you is that it took them a little over 2 or 3 years to get there. It took them a long time to get their clickbank reports to look like that. And now they’re selling you the result, not the hard work. So with that in mind I have to ask you a question: Do you really think that they are going to give you the whole picture? Are they going to tell you that it took them sometime to get where they are? Just think about it for a while BEFORE you purchase their product…
These 3 years in I.M. I’ve learned that that business model of “get rich quick” is the single best selling model on the internet. Yes, I said 3 years. Why has it taken me so long and I haven’t made that kind of money? Because like I told you before, I have 2 jobs in the real world! And when I get off work that’s when I will get to this I.M. thing. You ever read the fine print on those pages at the bottom? They will all say: “results not typical.” Well my friend, my results are NOT TYPICAL!
I have learned and learned and implemented and learned some more, and I will continue to learn and implement! Do I want the kind of money that they are talking about in those ads? Of course I do! Who doesn’t?! But I know better now that I’m in this thing with real people like Mark Thompson and the good people over at WordPress Goldmine. They have taught me a lot in the short time I have been there. And they’ll teach you too.
So what have I learned since I’ve been doing this I.M. thing? That you can’t jump from boat to boat looking for the next best thing. Stick to 1 plan and when that plan has been exhausted, then you move on to the next thing. But make sure that the author of that plan is selling you the “journey” and not the “result.”
Talk to you later…
