Internet marketing is just direct marketing that uses a new resource...
The same truths hold true, you have to WORK, STUDY, ACT, and PERFORM
I'm taking a short hiatus from my offline marketing to help a dear friend get his offline business back up and running, and it has been a learning experience for me.
This man has a wildly profitable brick and mortar, but the overhead is enourmous (sp?), just keeping the 400,000 gallon swimming pool treated with chemicals each week cost him more than most of you would be willing to pay for a coaching program that would make you thousands.
Stop thinking of Internet Marketing as a last resort "Get Rich Scheme" and treat it like a business.
Once you realize that Internet Marketing is just another way of presenting a product, although cheaper to get into, and quit treating it like a get rich scheme, those opportunities that we are all seeking will become more realistic and I won't have to fight the "scam factor" everytime I call a prospective client.
