Internet marketing is FULL OF HYPE. However, it is also a real way to make money. Over the years the hype has become so bad that in order to get anyone to buy anything anymore it seems like saying earn $2,000 per month doesn't get anyone as excited as earn $2,000 per minute. I'm sure that expression is just around the corner to being released.
The truth is that making huge profits requires that you spend HUGE amounts of money. Regardless of whether that money is spent in outsourcing or PPC, you have to spend or invest a lot of it to make a lot of it. You can make money with zero investment... I'm saying that in order to make thousands of dollars a week.... you have to spend hundreds of dollars a week.
There were two launches this year that claimed to earn around $20,000 in a month using their "system". One of those programs failed to tell you that more than 60% of that income was spent in PPC earning it. They also failed to tell people that they "owned" the clickbank product they were selling which made the Adwords compaigns a two step selling process rather than a three step process. Those two things right there tell you that most people will not succeed with that "system". Not those figures, not that fast.
The second program launched that made those claims had similar facts and figures all hidden and avoided.
The fact is that those systems do work. But ... they will not work for everyone. And the HUGE profits come at a price.
For instance... I have inside information on this "newb" that earned $37,000 in one month selling affiliate products. Sounds impressive right? Well, the product he sold earned him $1,000 per sale. So, that means he only had about 37 sales.
How much did he spend making those sales? I also happen to know that he spent about $700.00 to make every sale.
So, let's see... now how much did he really earn in a month? $11,100. I think that's a pretty impressive number. Why did they claim he earned $37,000 instead of his real profit of over $10k? Because the bigger number is so much more impressive. How impressive is it to say a brand new marketer had 37 sales his first month? Not very. But $37,000 his first month sounds like he could have had hundreds of sales.
Mark Lings program is an honest approach to Internet marketing. You will find plenty of testimonials in here, including mine, that prove that you can make good money online by working hard and following a successful blueprint like AB.
Just remember that you'll have to go through a learning curve. Remember that you are going to be bribed to buy buy buy buy buy more products, test out other systems and pretty much be told there are faster and better ways to make money online if you "buy this NEW system".
If you buy AB, stick it out. Work the program. Remember to build a site on a hot product, not something that you and a few friends personally think is fantastic.
Once you can afford to do so, outsource as much as you possible can.
Oh... and the other thing I wish everyone could avoid is paying for one on one coaching from people who call you up and ask you, "How is your Internet business going?". I get these calls all the time. I say, "It's going great, I'm making tons of money, take me off your list".
I'm not saying personal coaching is bad. I've had some awesome personal coaching. I'm saying the telemarketing coaching programs are NOT to be trusted.
Tons of hype out there, but there is also great programs like AB that can help you reach your goal of quitting your offline job. I quite mine after building my first AB site. You can do it, just work the program.
