Yesterday I shared an important bit of advice with you about one of the biggest mistakes I made when starting out with internet marketing, Treating Internet Marketing As A Hobby. Well today I’ve got another one for you, and boy is it a doozy!
Mistake #2: Lower Those Unrealistic Expectations
There is an incredible amount of hype out there for internet marketing, and it has led to many of you getting the impression that you are going to be able to push some magic button and just make money shoot out of your computer.
Yeah…don’t get those buckets ready to catch that money quite yet.
I want to be clear about something, most marketers aren’t going to lie when trying to sell you a product. It’s a terrible idea. It is something you can get sued and go to jail for.
A good sales person is trained to focus on the positives.
Make something sound as easy as possible.
I want to share one of my salesletters with you:
Look at my headline…”Crazy System Makes $300 Practically On Autopilot”
I know…I know…
Finally a true money making machine right!?!
Now don’t get me wrong, I stand behind my product 100%. It is awesome (I am not trying to sell you my product right now, just prove a point).
The only way to make it work for you is to jump in and really commit yourself to doing it.
You have to take action.
You can’t just buy it, and then only spend 30 minutes with it.
You have to dedicate yourself to it oh! like I talked about yesterday 😉
I have built marketing systems that really do function practically on their own.
It took real time and dedication to get there.
And you just can’t expect to have that happen for you overnight.
Most people figure this out and quit.
But I don’t want you to quit.
I don’t want you making the same mistakes I did!
Do you see what I am trying to do? I am trying to explain to you that:
1) Internet marketing is truly a legitimate way to make money. There are thousands upon thousands of successful people already doing it. There is no question about that.
2) Like anything else, internet marketing isn’t going to make you a quadrillionaire overnight. I will even go as far to say it won’t even make you a millionaire overnight lol. BUT…
Success does come for the dedicated and persistent.
Are you getting excited yet?
Okay, enough talk about the mistakes. Let’s start getting to the good stuff 🙂
Tomorrow I am going to share why internet marketing is AWESOME. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this!
