This video is a classic. If you've ever offered services, particularly offline, this will motivate you to stick with IM products.

    Oh that is painfully accurate when it comes to Web Design and Development. Way too accurate, which is why I rarely do it anymore.

      I couldn't agree more, fussy and demanding clients will drive you absolutely insane. The key with this service area is to very clearly set expectations in advance, before you even begin any work.

      Well put-- "painfully" accurate. There just seems to be an increasing number of people who want something for nothing. They think they have a sense of entitlement that doesn't apply to regular people. But the video is funny too. It's in the "too true" category. When I run into people like this, I want to run from them.

    I forgot about that video, I saw it a few months back. It is kind of painfull to watch as it makes you dread that stuff, but offline definately has its upside as well.

    Funny video but what drives me in internet marketing is pure enjoyment, and motivation. I like the work it is challenging, and enjoyable to me first off. Secondly: The potential of the Internet is huge you dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Thirdly: I like being my own boss who better than yourself?

    That was very good. I enjoyed it.
    You meet those types in every business. I don't call them clients. I call them impersonators or impostors. Whenever I encounter them I stall them and steal their time before they steal mine and when I'm tired of playing with them I simply walk away.

    I don't worry about losing business where it doesn't exist. And a loser can only refer another loser. I can't spend time with a non buyer.

    the most rewarding thing is the internet potential. You can work from different places, no need to stick to one city. and the scale can be big. It is everything you make of it.

    That is hilarious!

    Dang true.

    That's the #1 reason I focus on folks offline who have a TON of money and want SPEED.

    Classic video! One of the best things about being an internet marketer and particularly and affiliate marketer, you can avoid so much crap that comes with dealing with people...if you want to.

    So true. I owned a retail store years ago... NEVER AGAIN!

    However, even if you don't have the one-to-one interaction, this IS going on in your clients mind when comparing you to your competitors, so you want to be sure your site addresses these kind of "thoughts".

    I've encountered this countless of times and my favorite line of them "generous" clients is: I will refer you a lot of clients... which never happened.

    Both vids are right on target and quite funny, especially the first one.

    A perhaps more accurate observation is that the video drives people "away" from offline. Where they go after that is not always IM.

    That is FREAKING awesome! Both vids are right on target. Sending the links to some of my development friends still trapped in the twilight zone of silly clients.

    Thanks for the share! First good laugh of the day!
