However, I think for most people they see internet marketing, infomercials, long winded sales copy, etc.. as a giant scam...and for good reason.
I read these forums though and sometimes I just honestly wonder how many people are legit and how many peolple will do anything to make a buck on the web, even if means lying, cheating, stealing, selling bad products just to sell them.
This is just a general question, but when it comes to internet marketing, do you ever find yourself at a crossroads of whether to cross a certain line or not? Example...promoting or selling a product that you either haven't used or know is crap...but do it anyways so you can get paid? Stealing someones hard work and passing it off as your own. Well, nobody in their right mind will admit this fact on the forum...but just throwing the question out there.
I guess the greed aspect plays a huge factor. I see some of the big names making $50,000 a day, etc... and is there a point where you say "Wow, I am doing well...time to go on auto pilot and let the cash roll in" or does the hunger for more and more and more money keep piling on and keep you motivated to just keep working. I guess this would be the "means to an end" argument.
Maybe I have the mentality MOST people do. If I get to where I pull in an extra $3000 a month...that would DRAMATICALLY change circumstances for me. I could save more, I could pay off debt, I could enjoy a couple more dinners with my wife, just simple things versus getting the next big toy, new cars, etc... That is how I think now...and were you the same way..but now that you make the $3000...now you want 4,000...and after that 10,000, and after that 20,000...is there a personal stopping point where you are content?
anyways...thoughts. I apologize this may come off more as rambling then anything but it was on my mind.
