Like many of you, I have been searching for the elusive magic button that will make me millions of dollars, while I sleep, play outside, travel cross-country or any number of other things besides actually doing any work.
Unfortunately, as I've mentioned in other posts, there is no magic button.
However, in light of recent learnings from various thread here, I think I have it all figured out now, and can tell you the next best thing to the magic button.
And, it really does require NO WORK at all! None.
First, we know that article marketing is dead. It's dead, Jim. Stick a fork in it if you don't believe me. Dead.
Some people have bemoaned this fact, but it's really good news because it means no work writing articles.
Cool. One less thing to do.
Affiliate marketing is dead too. States are going crazy with taxes, and companies are pulling affiliate programs left and right. Plus, even without that, no one buys through affiliate links anymore. They just go directly to Amazon and shop. Search engines have cut out the middleman.
Some people think that's bad news. But, it's good news! Less work! No more hunting down affiliate links and plugging them into URL shorteners or cloakers or whatnot. No more writing reviews and stuff.
So, again, one less thing to do.
Our workload is getting smaller. This is good.
Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and all the other social networks... Dying, dying, dead, dying and defunct. No more frittering away time messing with those.
Again, less work equals more good news.
Backlinking? Dead. Google doesn't like them anymore. Google's Panda update is bashing them left and right, upside-down, right-side-up and sideways.
So, no more worries over building backlinks.
Video? Dead. It's going to be illegal soon to even embed videos on your website, probably including your own.
While some are in panic mode, this is, once again, good news. Less work. No more videos. No more filming them. No more cleaning off a wall so you have a non-distracting background. No more special effects. No more hunting for a good microphone so you don't sound like you're calling it in from an old CB radio.
Again, no video means less work.
We're really rolling here.
List building is dead too. No one uses eMail anymore. Everyone is using text messaging, er, txt msgng.
Long sales pages are dead too. Whew. It took forever to write them.
Oh, short sales pages? Also dead.
Yep, in other words, sales pages are dead. Good. We don't have to write them to sell our stuff anymore. Just toss a picture on your site with a big ol' "BUY NOW" button. Easy!
But, wait! Websites are dead too. No one visits them anymore. So, no need to buy a domain name and hosting. Not only is this less work, but less expense as well. A definite win-win!
And, it's good that websites are dead, because content is no longer king either. So, you don't need any actual content to make money.
This is all good news. This means that Internet marketing has now been reduced to doing absolutely no work at all!
So, here is what we no longer have to do to make money...
- You don't have to build a website.
- You don't have to write any content.
- You don't have to promote anything.
- You don't have to spend any money.
- You don't have to do any social networking.
- You don't need to do any advertising.
- You don't need to build a list.
- You don't even need to have a product to sell!
This Internet marketing stuff is going to be a breeze. There is no work or effort required whatsoever anymore!
This is totally AWESOME.
And, the less of this stuff you do, the more money will roll in.
It's virtually a big easy money button, except you don't even have to push a button! Just sit back, and dream of all the money that will soon be coming in.
Mind you, I've no idea where the money comes from or how it gets into your bank account, but that's just one minor detail that needs some tweaking.
But, it's okay, because the less I work, the more I'll make. So, if I don't work on that detail, I'll make even more money!
I am going to be rich!
