3 Common Misconceptions About Internet Marketing Revealed
Back in the 1980ís in the health industry, the belief was that eating a high carbohydrates, low protein, and low fat diet was the healthiest way to go. Most carbohydrates were considered good. And ALL fats are bad.
Unfortunately when the carbohydrate rage was going on, we see an increase in obese people and diabetes. Not too healthy is it? Now, a balanced diet and eating healthy fish fats is accepted as the healthiest way to go. The carbohydrate myth is now debunked. (That is the fact as I see it, anyway)
The same thing goes on with internet marketing and today Iím going to help you debunk 3 common myths about internet marketing:
Internet Marketing takes no effort to build!
This is probably the most popular myth about internet marketing. Although internet marketing is in fact the lazy personís way to wealth (legally and morally), the truth is that you still have to put out work in the front end before any real money is made in the backend.
Once you put enough work in the front end to develop a solid internet marketing foundation, you can then relax on the beach while the residual comes pouring in Ė all without lifting a finger!
All you need is a great website with all the best graphics and animations!
You canít just put up a website, tell your brother and sister about it, sit at home and watch TV all day and expect to have the cash magically appear in your bank account. You will still have to distribute, develop and market your product or service to people before anything significant will happen.
Many people spend tens of thousands of dollars having their websites developed without even thinking about the market they are selling their product and service to. They have all the flashy and colorful images and cute animations to impress visitors. Unfortunately, without a market, the only person that will look at their website and be impressed with it is themselves.
Itís like setting up your own professional practice or retail store and only telling your friends and family. No advertising and no marketing. Unless you have a HUGE family and have thousands of friends to support you, youíll be out of business in within months!
The BIG money in Internet Marketing is all hype and bullshi*!
People who believe in this garbage probably believe that the only way to make money is to go to school and earn wages at their cubicle. Although these people are half right, they get what they believe, all of the hype and bullshi*, and none of the BIG money.
When an internet marketing Ďguruí promises that his program will make you a millionaire in a month, he is a fraud and thatís why internet marketing is sometimes viewed by some people as scams.
But donít take financial lessons from wage earners, itís like taking hockey lessons from Michael Jordan; you are learning from people who donít know what theyíre doing on those subjects. In our case, broke wage earners giving us their opinions about internet marketing!
If I told you how much a successful internet marketer makes, you wouldnít believe me. Do your investigation and interview some top internet marketers. Find out his lifestyle and if itís a lot better than yours, youíd better listen up
In conclusion, remember that an internet marketing business (like any business) requires effort and a marketing strategy in order for you to make the big bucks. Throw out all the myths that are now debunked and embrace the realities of internet marketing.
