Conjecture. Yup, that's all it is. Someone's opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof.
When you think about it, that's what keeps most forums going.
Internet marketer's love conjecture. Why? It's the easy way out.
You can hang your hat on a belief without having to go to the effort of proving anything!
But here's rub . . .
IM is serious business (or should be). It's people's livelihood. I supports families.
And people's opinions are very often wrong - sometimes partially wrong - sometimes dead wrong. People love their opinions to the point that they begin believing them as fact and truth even though they have never been tested or proven.
I've done it. We've all done it. We've put money, time, and much effort into something based solely on an opinion we hold or one that someone shares.
Half the questions in this forum could be answered by the OP with a little testing. Wouldn't it be better to know for sure?
But that takes some time and effort.
It's not hard to learn how to track and test - anyone can do it.
But it's certainly easier to just ask your question and then hang your entire business on the conjecture of some random people here at the forum that have probably never made any real money in their business.
Is it any wonder so many of us struggle?
The very best to all of you, really,
