I have been shocked this month.
I have spoken to many of my mentors, friends, and went through my roboform saved websites and I have discovered something that shocked me.
I am surviving.
I did not know that surviving was an option, I always thought that delivering to our customers is an integral part of our commitment to them.
I have done what I have could at any given moment since I started in Internet Marketing to always give my customers their products.
Not only that, all my customers (except the PLR ones because of the progress and changes of the product) can get access to their products at any time, as long as they paid for a membership they can always get their username and password to access what they paid for.
But here is the shocking part. So far out of 10's of websites that I have checked are no longer in existance, and some of the ones that are- are so outdated that it is crazy.
Not only that, many of my mentors and friends are not in the self-help niche any longer.
And some of them have had their lives turn to the worst.
While I have used what I teach to make my life improve in ways I could not even imagine before.
My website has been up since 2007, maybe earlier, I have gone through 3 servers, now I am hosting on my own, and I have been delivering my content without major interruptions since then. I thought that this is what was requiered from an Internet Marketer.
I assumed that when someone is in the self-help niche it is because they themselves are doing well, and found a way to help others.
This totally relates to one of my prior posts where I said that most of the people that promote self-help are in it only for the money.
This is so sad.
I hope that there are more people who really care for their customers and readers, and not so much about making a buck.
To me it is so important to help each one of my customers that I do what I can to help them get results.
Some people here (if they still participate in the forum) know this about me.
I really wonder what is happening with all the work that is being done, are people really just making websites to sell something, make a buck and then let the customers down?
This is doing a dis-service to all.
I ask you to please, if you are in the self--help niche, to not burn it. If you really care for your people do what you can to help them achieve their goals, and if you are only in it for the buck, then find some other niche, it is bad karma to cheat people.
I do hope that people are being taken care of.
If you are one of the good internet marketers, or if you know of good internet marketer in the self-help niche let me know so we might be able to help eachother.
I never thought it would be like this, Internet marketing is constantly changing, that is a given, but I never thought that it is also constantly diying.
