I’ll admit it .. I never think I know enough either. Every week there is a new (and sometimes more than 1) item that arrives on the Internet Marketing scene that aims to solve all your money problems for the rest of your life.
These guys are great at 4 things .. 1 is making money for themselves and 2 is writing good sales-letters and 3 is copying other’s stuff and 4 is TAKING action.
So before you think you need to buy something else to make your business better – STOP. Look in the mirror and say “Is this really going to help MY BUSINESS — or am I buying this because it’s going to HELP ME”
Yes it will help you .. emotionally, but not financially. Buying the next biggest “thing” or “hope” will get you through the day happy. The problem is tomorrow will be a bad day.
Tomorrow comes the regret of the purchase, and then your realization that you have not advanced your business at all. My friend it’s time to get off the hamster wheel, and decide whether you want to be IN the marketing funnel, or HAVE the marketing funnel.
“I hope this program works, because all I know is that I’ve spent 25K on Internet Marketing programs and I’ve yet to break the $100 a month barrier”
I saw this quote as a Facebook comment on yet another Internet Marketing program a few weeks back and it really shook me up. It shook me up, because this guy is a sucker. He’s not an entrepreneur — he’s a consumer, and until he realizes that he’ll never make more than $100 .. and frankly I’m surprised he made that much.
Here is what an entrepreneur would do with 25K …
Option 1) Buy 1 operating mega site with 25k that’s making $3-5k a month profit ALREADY.
Option 2) Buy 5 operating semi-large sites (5k each) that are making $1k a month in profits ALREADY.
Option 3) Buy 10 operating niche sites (1k each) that are making $500 a month in profits ALREADY.
Option 4) Buy every Internet Marketing course for 3 months to learn how to make money online and then do everything myself from scratch for what I’ve learned.
Do you see the difference? One builds your business .. the other just builds frustration and debt.
So let’s try and keep this short as I’ve covered this immensely before. You won’t get rich buying Daniel Tans SEO Business in a Box, or Trey Smith’s Software System or whatever shit Ryan Deiss is peddling this month…
Instead you will build a business by doing something that actually helps your business.
