I post this thread with real concern (And you tell me if I'm wrong), because of all I can see of the solo ad sellers, is just people selling IM products to newbies, that don't have any clue of what they want.
Therefore, they will buy product after product, because in their minds, the Bright Shiny Object syndrome tells them unconsciously, that the next one is going to be THE ONE!
And I feel like the Solo Ad sellers and buyers take advantage of this newbie state of mind, and try to sell their stuff.
Of course, this is not the case for everyone, since there's plenty of honest marketers out there, who have a real knowledge of how to do things, and they want to teach others how to do the same. Knowledge is money, and I understand that.
The problem is when we think that our list is just our ATM, and that with it we can literally print money on demand, instead of thinking of it as a list of people who we can provide value to (of course, money is included, but providing VALUE is the main priority, instead of just making money).
That's the way I see it, for the most part.
Now... This is my opinion only. If anyone has anything different to say, please do, but I just see dishonesty all over the place, and that's just taking advantage of the newbies.
Am I making any sense? What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance, and hopefully this can turn into a really useful and constructive conversation on how this business works, and what its values are.
