I spent a little time reading through some of the posts here and I can tell you with great certainty that a lot of people have it all wrong. In fact, I really don't care if you attack what I'm saying here in this post either... but here's the deal:
Here's how almost every single person I know, who makes a lot of money online, does to earn that money... They sell products & services to people who "want" those products and services. They sell/market their own products and services and mix in affiliate offers along the way.
They build lists and sell those lists offers people want. Therefore, they are busy selling you all those products YOU want. They are busy tapping into "what people want". They figure out what people want and they sell it to them.
For example, Guru Bob creates a product on how to make money with Fiverr. Guru Bob promotes that product to his lists. Guru Sue, Guru Frank, Guru Ricky And Guru Sam all promote Guru Bob's product on how to make money with fiverr because it's converting well.
Question: How is Guru Bob making his money?
If your answer is through "fiverr"... BUZZZ, wrong.
Guru Bob is supplying the market. He is selling what people want. What do they want? They want the easy buttons and they want "how to make $100 this week"... and they want "a pill to lose weight"... and they want "how to make automated income on Amazon"... and "how to rank at the top of Guru and being as lazy as you want to be"... and so on.
Guru Bob is smart. He's busy creating squeeze pages. The last survey I ran showed that 75% of this market does not know how to create a squeeze page. They are too busy chasing the shiny objects to focus on the fundamentals... like building a list.
They are bored with the fundamentals of "traffic and conversions" are are snatching up every gizmo, fly-by-night, easy button around in desperate search of hitting the lottery with some "solution" they "want".
Want to make money, sell what people in a specific market WANT. Flip the table and be the one selling stuff. be the merchant. Be the business owner now. Be the one selling and recruiting affiliates. Be the one driving traffic to your offers.
heck, be the one that gets ridiculed like I probably will here. Who cares, bring it on. Want to make money? Then master one thing... one solution.. one thing people want, and then sell it to them.
Question: If Guru Bob sells a new WSO every week and each WSO is the most awesome way to generate money since money was invented, then Guru Bob is the busiest and most talented marketer in history.
In other words, if WSO guru Bob sells you how to make money with Amazon this week, and then sells how to make money with fiverr next week, then sells how to flips sites and make money the week after and then sells the following week how to make money with Articles and then follows that up with his 11th WSO on how to make money with Facebook, then the trick is on you.
How can Guru Bob be that dang good at so many different things? I mean, I've done millions and I'm not even that dang good. My point, sell stuff like Guru Bob! he's meeting a demand by providing a supply. Bingo.
Therefore, when I read through these posts, all I see are magic buttons here and magic buttons there. I'm blown away... good luck with all that. My advice? Create a sales funnel and sell stuff. Meet those demands. Sell what people want. Flip the table here and be the one selling solutions... systems... and what people "want".
Stop trying to get that magic gizmo software thingy you just bought that promises to put you at #1 on Google by doing nothing but clicking a button, stop trying to get that thing to actually work, and get busy selling solutions to the billions of problems human beings on this planet have.
Now, that's the easy way to earn money for the long haul.
