This is just a rant of sorts. I don't even know why I'm ranting because I make good money online...
But it seems that every week, there is a new best way to make money online that you "can't miss out on".
This week it's offline marketing with the Main Street Marketing Machine.
Every guru pitching that product is supposedly moving offline and dumping their online activities...or at least according to their pitch emails.
Last week it was all about mobile marketing and that if you don't jump on it now, you're going to be too late.
I consider myself pretty resilient to that kind of stuff, but even I had thoughts of 'hmmm maybe I should try this offline stuff...'
So the fresh off the boat newbie is screwed. With all this crap floating around, it's no wonder people fail at making money online.
It totally makes sense to me.
Joe newbie decides to try affiliate marketing. Over the next 30 days he builds a couple websites, but doesn't see any results.
In comes a shinny magic bullet email that will supposedly fix his problem - "even newbies can make a fortune in 3 weeks", "this is the future of IM", "get in on this before it's too late..."
Joe newbie believes his old method doesn't work anymore, and moves onto the next thing....
The cycle continues and continues with each failed attempt.
Now look, I totally understand the product seller is simply trying to position their product so that people buy, and buy now. And that's OK.
It just seems a little crazy right now.
Maybe it's because I have been studying the launch process more and now understand what they are doing, but it's starting to get pretty lame....
Does anyone agree?
