Myth #1: It’s easy.
Reality: It’s a lot easier and more fun than most of the careers and businesses you can do. But it isn’t really easy. To paraphrase Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own, if it was THAT easy, EVERYBODY would be doing it.
Myth #2: It’s the lazy man’s way to riches — no work.
Reality: Because online marketing generates passive income, it is much less work than many other businesses ONCE IT GETS GOING.
But it takes an enormous amount of work to get it set up and started at the beginning.
Myth #3: You’ll make a million dollars within 12 months.
Reality: Maybe you will. Most of us don’t.
“But Bob, what about all those Internet marketing promoters whose online ads SAY they are making a zillion dollars a week?”
To quote my friend Fred Gleeck: “The only numbers you can really know and trust are your own.”
Am I saying that perhaps some of these promoters exaggerate their success?
I don’t really know HOW much money they make. And neither do you. So I follow Fred’s dictum and you should too.
Now, do you agree with the above?
What has been your experience and degree of satisfaction with the “Get rich on the Internet” programs you’ve purchased and conferences you’ve attended?
Any other Internet marketing myths or lies you’d like to puncture here?
Be my guest!
