And to be crystal clear, these BMWs Business Model Warriors are deftly serious. For those who don't or won't employ their Business Models, watch out because the BMWs are going to attempt to make you think your Business Model, no matter how successful, is worse than three-week-old cow dung!
The sad part is; they don't realize they are engaging in this dastardly head banging deed.
A Business Model is the particular way in which a person or company generates revenue. In Internet Marketing there is a myriad number of Business Models. That list includes but is not limited to: PPC, PPV, CPA, List Building, FaceBook Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Adsense, Article Marketing, Bum Marketing, Twitter Marketing, Press Release Marketing, Web 2.0 Properties, Fiverr, Traffic Exchanges, Revenue Sharing Websites, Podcasts and the list goes on and on.
Business Models also covers doing things manually, doing things semi-automated and wholeheartedly utilizing IMATs Internet Marketing Automated Tools. We could go even further and talk about Business Models in Offline Internet Marketing and Google Places and on and on.
Here's where some WF Members start banging their heads. If your Social Bookmarking Business Model is submitting social bookmarks manually, why slam, chide and literally berate the people who use IMATs to submit their social bookmarks? That's their Business Model, not yours. We get it, you don't submit your social bookmarks, articles, backlinks, Web 2.0 Properties, Press Releases, etc, using IMATs. You've made it perfectly clear that you choose to do things manually because... that is your BUSINESS MODEL! But, it is not the Business Model of those who "CHOOSE" to deploy IMATs.
We have people who have rejected Adsense as a Business Model. They swear one can only make peanuts with Adsense. So imbued are they with their beliefs, if a WF Member so much as asks a simple question about Adsense, these head bangers essentially hijack the thread and attempt impose or force the OP to reject the notion of ever succeeding with Adsense.
They emphatically implore the OP to forget about Adsense and most importantly, embrace their Business Model because their Business Model, in their opinion, is better than Adsense or better than Amazon.com or better than ScrapeBox or better than whatever Business Model they happen to be adamantly against. Here's what you need to know head bangers. Many IMers secretly engage in what is called Case Studies. A Case Study is...
|A method of learning about a complex instance, based on a comprehensive understanding of that instance, obtained by extensive description and analysis of the instance, taken as a whole and in its context.|
Duly note, there are Business Models in which, "Quality Content is King!" But there are also business models in which 3rd rate and 4th rate content is king. Arguing that point is moot because as I always say...
|A man with proven Case Studies is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.|
It's sorta like ice cream. You love Vanilla and you "HATE" Butter Pecan. How does your angst against Butter Pecan become so deep that you feel a need to force all Butter Pecan Lovers to drop their beloved flavor?
I say we need to perform a Butter Pecan Case study!
