Internet Marketing | The reality about internet marketing

It’s that time of the year again where so many Internet Marketing gurus trying to woo participants to take up their courses and workshops , at the same time selling their systems . Well folks , just be careful before you sign up for these courses because there are a lot of scams out there  . So here is a gentle reminder again which i think is a good self check .

  • Is the offer too good to be true ? Think about it …  those scam artists and what they do
  • Check with your friends who has attended the course and get their feedback if he/she has gotten back the ROI

Enough said , so let me share some personal experience

Internet marketing | 95% internet marketers will fail

In any business , if all else remains equal , 95% will fail and only 5% will survive . How can a system be sustainable if it is so simple and easy ? Market forces work in such a way that it will not allow this to happen  . Just like bubble tea a couple of years ago . The craze hit Singapore and everyone was selling them . Today , majority lost money and leaving a few players left . Players who has deep pockets , other sources of revenue or are very unique in the way they run their business , survived . The reality is that the market cannot sustain so many of these vendors  and therefore in many businesses , only  5% will made it .

Of course there are many who attended the course and workshop , and after that did nothing . Of course don’t expect something out of nothing . This will be the 1st group that will fall off . The group that proceed to do and get their hands dirty  ,  will find that the going is very tough . Expect n0 revenue or earning for the next 6 months minimum . Some will start falling off along the way . Some sooner , some later as one will realise that even internet marketing gurus spend a lot of their time and effort actually behind the scene ,  but on the front , they talk about passive income , spend very little time and so forth ,  which is actually … not true . Interestingly these 5% that made it ,  is also very different . Its just that they appear normal on the outside , but on the inside its significantly different from the rest (95%) .  Let me share some experiences

Internet marketing | Ready stream of customers

Some has a shop front and already have existing and ready customers . So getting into Internet marketing simply opens up more doors . Do they have to depend on internet marketing to survive ? Not really but if it opens up new customers , its an added advantage . So they can survive with or without internet marketing . If you already have a  brand name or following , then Internet Marketing is just another channel to market your products .

Internet Marketing | Doing things differently

There is another guy that we came across and he does business on Amazon only . He has so many “registered accounts” and has many friends . So when he launch his products , he literally will use his “registered accounts” and his friend to buy his own products and having them to write good reviews . The strategy is  , on the day of launch , the products will have massive volumes and a lot of good reviews taking the product to the 1st page and this is a very important  objective . Once the product sticks on the 1st page , it will remain there for a very long time . Of course Amazon will take a cut on sales  , and he lose a little since he is also sponsoring his friends to purchase and write reviews  . This product may be a simple e-book which may cost US$2.00 to download . As the strategy unfold , the 1st e-book will reference to a better 2nd or 3rd e-book which is what the vendor is targeting at   , which may cost US$10.00 or so . Normal internet marketers will not do something like this and like i have said , these 5% are very different and that is why they survive . One thing for real , product has to be good , else it cannot sustain over the longer term .

Internet marketing | Things changes all the time

The landscape in internet marketing changes all the time as new competitors comes on board and older ones make way for the newer ones .  So when someone offer to show and tell you his strategies , it is probably time to get rid of the “old” ways of doing things as most probably the vendor has already knew that new and effective strategies are coming on board and the best way to make 1 last final profit would be to sell his  ideas and methods before he call it quits . If a business is like a goose with the golden eggs , why would anyone wants to sell the goose away ?

Internet Marketing | What have you got to offer ?

Am i making sense so far ? If you are new , it will be very tough . Yes there is a lot of information on the internet , but a lot of them is obsolete or untrue .  If you have a steady job and thinking that Internet Marketing is about passive income , don’t have to do much , then don’t expect it to survive , because market forces , especially those that are really hungry ,  will make your site obsolete . The market don’t reward easy  stuff or stuff that require  minimum effort . This is the reality . There are a lot of folks who are willing to work harder and putting in more effort , so how can these folks lose to those who put in less , if all else remains equal ?

Now that i have put you in the right perspective and you still want to attend an internet marketing workshop , because you are a newbie or want to know more , then go on to  sign up [here] . Internet Marketing is not meant for everyone especially those who thinks that not much effort or work is required .
