Is it me or is a lot of IM programs super spammy and provide little value?

Case and point made in the title. It just boggles my mind. But really though,
it's like people don't understand the fundamentals of business or why someone would be paid for doing something.

    Majority of the Internet Marketers are spammy, I have to agree with that but there are marketers who makes a lot of money without being spammy. They provide a lot of value and information, you just need to dig deeper on find the ones that is real.

      I agree with Marked09, but would like to add something here.

      You see the so called "gurus" just don't get out of bed an decide to scam people. They are forced to do that by the buyers.

      They just tell you what you want to hear. Earnings proof being one of them. 99% of the buyer population is looking for soime sort of guarantee and income proof rather than focus on the workability of the system itself.

      People don't have enough knowledge to set realistic expectations! Most are suffering from the "shiny object" syndrome and never factor in the learnig curve associated with any system.

      Crux: There are very few real action takers out there and that facilitates scams!

    The only ones who make a lot of money and do it consistently are the marketers who provide the most value to the marketplace.

    People are getting a lot smarter and becoming more numb to all the get rich quick offers. Mostly because they have been burned already and are super skeptical.

    Even if there was a ton of value provided in programs people still wouldn't do what was required and would complain about it being a scam. Majority of people who buy products, join programs, or buy books never fully go through them properly or are just looking for an "Easy" way to make money.

    When they find out it's not so easy they are quickly gone on to the next big promise.

    I have seen some real spammy marketers. Especially the ones spamming their links all over facebook. I think that often times people do it because they haven't invested in their education and knowledge, or don't know another way. A lot of spammers are actually promoting good companies. If they only knew that they would get much better results if they consistently provide more value to the marketplace, they would probably kick themselves for spamming. We were all new at one point so it would be great to reach out to these people and help them.

    when you said spammy, I suppose it's about promotion. Yes, I think people tend to do content marketing because they don't wanna pay and some people they just don't get the value of content marketing that's the point when they start doing the spam way. lol.

    The problem with spamming marketing is , in IM world the market is savvy, they don't get the bait of those spammers... But still, well-packaged digital products with low quality stilll sell very well these daays....

    A simple answer to a simple question - Yes, a lot of IM programs are spammy.

    If you went around the street asking people to give you a bullet-proof immediate get rich quick program the only responses you would get would be people trying to scam you. Online it's the same but with many layers of slightly more subtle options. So it opens the doors to people who don't really have any way to teach others to be successful, but can create a hyped-up sales letter for a technique desperate people will try "just in case it works" before moving on to the next thing.

    You only have to look at the WSO section to see how desperately people are creating 'something to sell' to desperate buyers.

    That's not to say there's not some good people doing good work - but you won't easily find them looking around at what "everyone" is doing.

      I totally agree, if you went door to door trying to sell 'methods' to making thousands per month I bet money on it someone will report you to the police at some point. Not only are you a nuisance, but people are going to think you are a conman or worse just a thief.

      People's behaviours change online, probably because they feel disconnected from the real world by it, and don't see the real world consequences of what they are doing.

      Ask yourself, if you wouldn't do this physically one-on-one why are you doing it at all?

        Unfortunately I would bet money you would make a tidy income from it, and never get anyone to report you.

        Unless of course you kept calling night after night to the same address

          Personally, when I was buying in my younger years I found some really high quality programs.

          They are out there. You just have to know where to look

    Most of them are scammers or provide very little practical information. I agree.

    One thing that really blew my mind was realizing just how many people will buy products... without so much as even downloading what they paid for...

    Not saying it's right, and it's a choice that everyone has to make for themselves, but you can see how some people would come to the conclusion that it's not simply worth it to put the extra time and effort into overdelivering on quality when the majority won't even bother to take off the wrapping.

      Man that's so true smh

      I used to fear revealing my methods and what not, until I realized no one actually takes action!

      I had a $10 membership going, and only 50% of the people even opened the email!

      So I cancelled it, because I felt like people didn't value the info like I did.

      I've since learned to give the people what they want, but there are those that stand out from the crowd.

      Those are the one's I pour my knowledge into!
