Warning: This isn’t a warm and fuzzy post. There won’t be ‘high ways’ and ‘way to go’s’ in this thread. In fact, I may lose a few friends because of it but you know what, I have always spoken my mind and well, today is no different. If I tick you off because of it, maybe, just maybe there is some truth to what I’m about to write.

Here goes…

Internet marketing sucks! The entire industry, the entire thing is set up to get the little guys to always be ‘donating’ to the big guys lifestyle…Let me say that again…The industry is set up like this;

Big guy gets his buddies to help launch a new product. The product is nothing new. Rarely has anything been done in the internet marketing world that actually helps and trains new marketers, it’s usually re-hashed advice that you can find in any marketing or business book at Amazon.com.

His ‘buddies’ hype it up and send emails to you, where it’s promised to be a revolutionary service, it’s a must have product, and you would be silly not to take action on it.

The big guy makes thousands upon thousands of dollars, and him and his buddies usually meet up at an offline event and laugh about how stupid people are to buy their products….And they are going to do the same thing in a few months again.

Am I just talking out of my rear end?

Nope, I have been there. I have been to those events, I have heard the conversations, I know how these people think. Heck, I was in that little circle of friends a few years ago. I might have even been one of those scum bags in the conversation. Sad really…I was caught up in the glamor and glitz I suppose and wanted to be ‘one of the guys’.

But here’s the worst part, this will never change. Whenever someone says ‘you can make money easily online doing this….’ people will flock to it. It’s not just internet marketing too, it’s in the traffic exchanges, it’s in the paid to click world, it’s in the MLM game…It’s everywhere.

How do you avoid these schemes? I can only think of one way…Educate yourself! Go to Amazon.com and buy a few books on ‘making money online’ or marketing in general. Read for yourself, learn the techniques from people that actually walk the walk.

I mean the big guys will be the first people to pitch you a product on ‘social media’ but then don’t even have a Twitter account. Seriously, they are about selling you stuff, not about educating you to fend for yourself in the marketing world.

Again, my advice, avoid the schemes like the plague and EDUCATE YOURSELF! Amazon.com is the best thing to ever happen to my business and it can be for you as well. The more you learn about how this game works, the better off you will be. Arm yourself with ‘marketing knowledge’ the right way….Read a book or two!

    That is so true. I downloaded this free ebook with here :http://bit.ly/amUInI . Later on, after reading it I upgraded to a paid version, and so far I got zero income out of it. Sucks. If I asked around, they said that is because I didn’t follow the instructions to the letters. Who does?

    I support your rant, especially since I find the bubbly, chatty salespeople to be very annoying and unconvincing. I don’t even HAVE that overrated personality, either. It’s ironic that the quiet, humble, and detail-oriented people, myself included, tbh, are the ones that make the most money, because we find those that love to talk just for the sake of talking are nothing but a distraction hindering our actual success. It’s like stuffing a quiet, humble rabbit into a cage full of noisy, chattery monkeys. It’s no wonder we always say things like, “Leave me alone!” or “Shut up! I’m trying to concentrate on this!”
