Every Newbie Buying WSOs and IM Products Should Watch This

23 replies
I don’t normally tout other marketer’s videos, but this one really hit home for me as something many people here need to hear.

Are you an entrepreneur or just an opportunity seeking sucker who needs the security of hyped up promises from others?

    Interesting video. Thanks for the post. I think we all know that IM, like many other forms of business are filled with both of these. Those that are serious get weeded out fast though once real work ethic and desire are tested.

    Those questions bother me as well and this is the problem that we find with many new marketers. They want some type of guarantee instead of understanding that this is a BUSINESS. If you are new to internet marketing, then make sure you treat your work, your websites, your articles, and everything you are doing to build your online income as a business. If you do not you will end up spending money on junk guides that will not give you a long term income.

    This video is 100% correct and we need more marketers that are willing to put this out there and tell the truth. There are too many scam type marketers that use tricks to get you to pay for things that you will never use or make money from.

    STOP reading sales letters and start taking advantage of the free information that is out there!

      Well, as he says (and the POINT of the video) is that when people look for a guarantee, or "do this and earn that" it indicates one of 2 things...
      a) Employee mindset
      b) Opportunity seeker

      Since "newbie" --> means --> Never run their own business... it stands to reason that most newbies DO have "employee" mindset. Yes, there are "lazy opportunity seekers," but I don't think they are the majority.

      Here's the irony.... go look at the titles in the WSO section. Same thing in the clickbank marketplace. Amazing how many pitches make the very promises that we don't want newbies to look for.

      So, as marketers, we tell newbies to "stop looking for guarantees" - but everywhere you turn, that's how (too many) "marketers" are marketing their products. Interesting, no?

    There is no security in business ownership. There are only challenges.

    If you are looking for security, get a job.

    If you are looking for challenges and uncertainty, start a business.

    I opted for the latter, because while a job will help me pay my bills, a business offers the potential to win big or lose big.

    I prefer the opportunity to fail to the opportunity for security. Because when I accept that I could fail big, I inherently understand that I also have the opportunity to win big.

    I would rather gamble everything on the prospect of winning big, than to gamble nothing and gain security.

    I think I could make a pretty compelling argument that there's no security in a job either, especially in the current economic conditions.

    The reality is that LIFE is not secure.

    I can't change the winds but I like to be in control of the sail.

    Hi Ron,

    Thank you for sharing the video. The "illusion of security" that was mentioned are illusion that common man possess.

    Mark Joyner has it when he started with IM journey, so as Mike Filsaime, so as Dr. Joe Vitale and the newest of the newbie.

    It is this illusion that was created by gurus that "prompts" the newbie to buy new products or software that they believe could change their life.

    It is the same illusion that i have when i started out in IM journey. I learned along the way. I was scammed, i was conned, i fall down...

    This is how we learn and grew up as a marketer.

    We learn new things, apply new learned principle until such a time the we make money and make it big on the online world.

    The cycle is endless, everyday - thousands upon thousands of newbie have these "illussion of security" issue and the process remains.....

    Point is, in some point, i will make sales from this fear of illussion from a newbie and the cycle continues.

    Allow me to share with the readers the "12 Things That Make Men Rich" video by Napolen Hill.

    YouTube - Napoleon Hill-- 12 Things That Make Men Rich!

    Hope it will bring inspiration to the individual who wants to make it big on the IM arena.

    My 2 cents....


    Jerry

    thats a great message for anyone getting started, it's so easy for newbies to be jumping from one shiny object to the next, and just spinning wheels getting nowhere. You need to focus on one idea and make it work.

    I agree with you and for newbies I think getting a job is more better as scams are here and there in the web and chances of getting success with a business is much less than getting success.

    You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind.

    Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed possible.

    What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.

    I hope this will inspire your mindset

    I watched the video several times, and I must say, Rich does a pretty good job at explaining the IM picture at detail..

    cool post,
    I had actually followed Rich's 7 steps to an unstoppable income webinars. Hes course was way out of my price range though.

    He is however a highly successful businessman and marketer, worth listening to.

  • Glad to see someone of his caliber laying it down straight.

    It takes work to succeed!

    Gotta agree with Rich here, autobiographies are really some of the best business books that you can read.

    It really opens your eyes to what a successful business really is and what you need to do in order to get there.

    For me, the few autobiographies that I've read seem to be good for everything...from mindset to business tactics to hiring people etc... you can learn a lot by reading what others have gone trough in their journey to success.

    Cool tip at the end about picking up a book about a famous entrepreneur and looking for patterns.

    Don't know much about Rich (other than he's massively respected)... will be reading and watching his sales letters with interest to see if he does stuff different (ie. any claims).

    Thanks for sharing.
