better X or Y.
Most of these questions, if not all, belong to cheap mentality.
A not serious mentality.
What i mean is: the quick rich attitude in somewhere inside these people and they wanna know what to do "quick and profitable" in order to do OTHER THINGS after they become eventually rich.
They end up disappointed after few years later, after being scammed again and again, and then they'll eventually give up or continue the compulsive buying of courses, only to not admit to themselves that they had completely failed.
Why this happens? Cause of gurus? Cause of scammers? Or bad courses?
No. As the tv movie 'Huste' says: you cannot cheat an honest man.
It's the attitude in the beginning, the source of the problems.
Online Marketing has been taken seriously: it's not about "what" to do preferably, if the blog, or the channel, or whatsoever, it's about how these things link together in a complex strategy for selling something.
So you need firstly to know what to sell. Then think that you would not 'do something' than it's all passive and you can go to vacation.
It's a business. A work. You need to apply constant effort, there's no something like 'all passive' and go to beach with a cocktail waiting for millions.
You will need probably to have Blog, Youtube, Facebook Page, and everything tuned and built like an ecosystem to catch potential customers from different angles.
And you will need to nurture these sources continuously. So take it like a serious business, not something to do for having the time to do other things.
That's why few people succeed.
