Internet Marketing Is Not Simple – Don’t Believe The Hype From Gurus
One of the things that’s really frustrating about the gurus in the Internet Marketing industry is how they paint the picture that Internet Marketing is so easy. They call it ‘push-button’ simple, like hitting the red Staples button that screams ‘That Was Easy’ is all you need to do to make millions of dollars. They make you believe that you can start off with no money and no experience, and in 30 days or less you’ll be making a 6-figure income while relaxing on the beach in Maui. They make you believe that this one, new traffic method will be the answer to all of your problems, and give you traffic and money for the rest of your life.
Well, don’t believe the hype!
Making money and having success in Internet Marketing takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice, period! If you’re not prepared to work your butt off and make sacrifices, don’t even start. If you’re not ready to be challenged on a daily basis and do things time after time that may seem boring, just move on to something else. If you’re not willing to get out of your comfort zone to accomplish things you’ve only dreamed of, Internet Marketing may not be for you.
This is what you must do to be successful in Internet Marketing. You must get up earlier and stay up later than you’re used to working on your business. You must turn off the ‘idiot tube’ (TV) during producing hours. You must be efficient by planning and managing your time and goals wisely. It’s imperative you avoid distractions during producing time by closing down your email program and turning off your cell phone. If you have a full time job, you should easily spend 4 hours per day working on your business. If you work online full time, you should spend a minimum 8 hours per day on your business.
Bottom line is you have to have a burning desire to succeed. You have to be committed to your dreams and your goals to get you through the ‘peaks and valleys’ of entrepreneurship and business ownership inside of Internet Marketing. There will be times where you’ll wonder if what you’re doing is actually working… and if it’s worth it. The answer is always a resounding yes! There will be times where you will have doubts and you will struggle. Embrace it. It’s part of the journey! There will be many times where you will hit roadblocks. Don’t stop. Go through them, around them, under them, etc.
Listen, if you truly want to achieve the money and lifestyle you dream of, it comes with a price. The few that reach the pinnacle of Internet Marketing have paid the price, and they all say the price was worth it. So when you read another sales letter or see another sales video promising you the world for literally doing nothing, don’t believe the hype. If you hear about a new super-secret traffic method that the guru is killing it with, don’t believe the hype. If you ever think that what you’re feeling or seeing is ‘too good to be true’, don’t believe the hype.
