Making a living off Internet Marketing - Is it possible?
Dear Affilobuds and buddettes,
Here's a blog post by John Reese actually, it was a video. Here is my response to his post:
His post is here:http://www.income.com/blog/
Here is my response:
I think the part about doing more than expected is cool and true, however I do not believe that people are going out and making $6,000 a mo. in just a few months. That is TOTAL CRAP. If there are, they are fery few and very lucky.
I have been running (very very dilligently I might add) a website for 5 years now plus I have another website and I have put a MASSIVE amount of time and effort into my sites with very little success. I have read loads of courses and implemented every thing I have learned over the past couple of years. As a matter of fact, I work a full time job and I would stay up until 2:00 am to work on this stuff. Very, very little success.
Honestly, I am one person that has tried for a half of a decade to do Internet marketing diligently.
Now, I am not telling you to not pursue this Internet marketing opportunity. Hey, I haven't given up. I never give up.
However, whenever I hear anyone talking about quick success like this, I get a little angry and passionate. If you go into any business with the mindset that Ohhh, I'm gonna make $6,000 a month because I go way beyond what others are willing to do, well, all I can say is B.S. (please excuse my vernacular)
Oh, one other thing that irritates me to no end is this, (and then I'll shut up) all of the Internet Marketing Gurus tell you not to go into Internet Marketing as a business. Now, let me ask you this: What business are they in? And no sooner after they sell you or convince you to do something they start backending loads of other products at you.Side note: That's one of the things I love about Affilorama, they don't try to backend you to death.
Listen, It's like a famous business person always states on his radio show:
If the deal is too good to be true....It probably is.
God Bless Mr. Reese,he seems to be a nice man and I am a very upbeat and positive person usually, but let's be realistic here please.
