Cheapness when wanting quality. Cheapness when wanting speed. You name it, seems like everyone expects something for nothing these days.
Sure, we're not all cheap. There's a ton of serious marketers here who realize that paying for what something is worth keeps the globe spinning.
But when you try and cheat, cut corners, or downright steal from others... you're destined for the failure bin.
Sure, you might make "more profit" for a while, but your attitude will cause more workload and stress for you in the long run.
- Article writers than use spinners.
They spend $50 on a spinner. Then 1 hr per day using it.
Then when the results don't come in from those articles, then are forced to repeat the process over and over.
- Marketers that expect a $97 product ghostwritten for $200
And when the product doesn't sell, or gets high refund rates, or buyers don't come back for more, then they have to start again, with another product, in another market.
- People who use content spinners (auto blogs)
And when Google won't rank their sites, or they get a 99% bounce rate, they have to spend another few days creating more websites, buying more domains...
And there are hundreds more examples of the Cheap SOB mindset.
Everywhere I look, people are working their asses off, trying to find ways to save time and money.
Oh the irony. If only you could see how easy it really is. All you have to do is spend the money, get the results the first time around, then move on.
But no, so many folks insist on wasting time and money, finding the shortcuts, diminishing the quality, and slowing down their success as a result.
If you're one of them, my advice is, wake up.
With the "cheap SOB" mindset, you're going to struggle mentally and financially today, and in ten years.
Please, just pay the money, get it done properly, and save face in the real world.
"but I don't have any money. I'm starting on a shoestring budget"
Yeah? Well, get a job then. Do this part time, and spend some of your wages on quality solutions instead.
And if you have a job and still can't afford it? Then stop buying donuts and burgers, movies and beer, and start taking this seriously.
Or get a better job. Or just work overtime. Or just work harder on your business.
There's no excuse for the Cheap SOB mindset. It's gonna hold you back in life, trust me.
