‘I am an Internet Marketer’, the man in the bar says. Or maybe some friend of a friend claims to be an Online Entrepreneur. “Ooh”, you exclaim, and think to yourself that person must be a real genius, and undoubtedly highly successful. But don’t be fooled.
There is a huge difference between someone who boasts about being an Internet Marketer, and someone who actually earns a decent living from it. In fact, if you want to tell people you are an Internet Marketer, but would feel ashamed to simply lie about it, you can become one in less than 10 minutes.
Follow these easy steps…
1. Go on Google and search for ‘weight loss supplements’.
2. Click on one of the displayed results and look to see if they have an affiliate program, or offer commission for promoting their miracle products (same thing really). If they do, then sign up and copy the ‘affiliate link’ they provide for you.
3. Open a Blogger account (just Google ‘Blogger.com’). Follow the simple instruction and create a new blog. Call it ‘Lose 10lbs in 3 Days’. In the body of your new blog, just write ‘I can’t believe how much weight I lost using this miraculous weight loss marvel’. Then paste in the affiliate link you got from the other site. Now publish your blog.
Congratulations…you are now officially an Internet Marketer. In under 10 minutes.
Will you make any money? No. Will you make as much money as 99% of other Internet Marketers? Yes. And that will be exactly $0 and 0 cents.
Does Anyone Ever Make Money From Internet Marketing?
Yes. But it is not an easy task.
The lure of internet marketing is easy to see. You can work from home and all you need is a computer and internet connection…which nearly everyone has these days. But it is never as simple as that. If it was, every office building in the world would be fairly empty.
Internet marketing is a highly competitive industry. If you have little investment to begin with the task will be even more arduous. It is possible to start with a tiny budget, but it may take a long time before you ever see any success. And there can be a lot to learn.
If this has put you off the idea, then good, you probably were not cut out for it anyway. But if you are determined to prove everyone wrong and actually make a career with online marketing then best of luck. Now all you have to do is find some assistance.
Hoping to be a millionaire this time next week? Why not try entering ‘make money online’ into Google? There should be plenty of websites in the results ready to take your money…
