Are u this kind of person?

HYPOCRITE !

Are u guilty?

I mean whats up.

I see many people in WF bashing other "gurus" and their sales letter or their hyped up videos and phrases they use.

And the next thing i see when i scroll down after reading their post is their signature saying the exact thing they criticized about.

Example Post :

There is no such thing as easy, free automated sytems.

Example Sig file :

Click here for a free report on how to convert sales easily on autopilot.



Ive seen many, and HEY, its not just the nobodys and the small fries.
Its reputable people in this forum, big names that u know, accounts with long history, many thanked posts etc.

And they are guilty too!

    I just think That people are at different stages of their own development. There are also experts at mediocrity. sometimes people spend used developing something. they can't quite get a grasp on what they must change. it is up to you too to german which ones would be best for you.

    Anytime you see the word "AutoPilot" RUN......RUN as fast as you can.

    I am a Warrior that tried to put everything on autopilot, found out it is not that easy. Anybody that thinks it is that easy is sure to spend a ton of money on products that will never work.

    Fight On,

    Dave

    I agree, auto, easy, instant, all are triggers for SCAM. Nothing is so easy to earn money from or else nobody would have a real job, it all takes work and in many cases luck. Some programs work for some people and not others, 100 people can follow the same exact formula and only a handful will reach success.

    This is why even though I have been blogging and affiliate earning for 3+ years I don't create my own program to sell, purvey or anything. I could but I wouldn't because I can't guarantee anybody can earn following the methods I do, I just share what I try for free in reviews and on my site and wish everyone best of luck.

    Hi Dave,

    Autopilot is a term that can be interpreted in so many ways. I understand that you may not have the best past experiences with automating, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't or won't work for anyone else.

    I agree that just typing some command into a program and letting it loose is not going to produce great results, but what about building a system around careful planning, training others to do the required steps and having them carry out the daily tasks while you review and course correct where necessary? It's not 100% "autopilot", but still definitely the most powerful way to grow.

    Just stay away from the offers - most of them do the same thing - nothing

    I agree that if it says fast and easy to get traffic or the like that there is no way to do that

    The gurus that claim that are trying to suck you in, but there are some great offers that tell you the truth - it may take days or months to get traffic to your site

    I think people are better off worrying about their own business instead of complaining about someone else's...

    It's one valuable/hard lesson I learned this year...

    When you let other people's actions effect what YOU'RE doing it's easy to lose focus.

      yea, thanks for that.

      this thread is not meant to vent frustration, is just to bring a point up.

      but anyways, i needed that piece of advice today.

      it came very timely.

      just some other issues and was quite affected. but what u say is right.

      Dont let what others say or do affect what u, if u do, u will lose focus.

      thanks mate.

    Obviously they're doing this to discredit their competition and attract customers to their own service.

    Sadly there are way too many products out there saying you can put all your marketing efforts on 100% autopilot.

    Sadly it does not work that way, there is always a lot of work for you to do, but you can either outsource some or most ofit, and get certain software that will help you automate some of the tasks to help you focus more on growing your business.

    However, this can only be done when IMHO when you have started to see some income coming in, and then scale up your business.

    However, you must stay away from all these trillion dollars, or 5 gajillion hits in an hour softwares, they hardly ever, if ever at all work. The get rich quick scheme never existed, and never will.

    So be prepared to work hard, and then success can be earned.

      yea i hear u mate.

      i dont look for all this things, its just a matter of chance and then i laugh at it.

      because its so damn funny.

      and so i posted this to see if anyone realized that there is such thing going on.

      like saying 1 thing and then doing the very same thing the other.

    Hmmm....I don't dispute that there's a lot of hypocrisy in IM. It's a dog-eat-dog industry and most people haven't considered the fact that they're morally bankrupting themselves when they resort to their nefarious marketing techniques.

    I do challenge the 'autopilot' comments. I think you can put your effort into the front-end of a new project, then given that you've set it up right, pretty much walk away. I've done this with a few WPMU sites with auto-publishing, pinging etc and they're building their own traffic without me having done anything beyond the initial setup.

    Agreed with OP, I only see loss of energy when people try to devalue their competitors in such a way. Plus it will only make them look like a fool.
