Internet Finally Becomes a Level Playing Field

Aug 17, 2007
It doesn't seem so long ago when I first tried my hand at Internet Marketing. I was full of hope and great expectations and naively thought that it was a simple process to actually get your site seen and even sell your goods. What a fool I was. Maybe not the correct termination but a few years down the line it certainly feels foolish.

Well foolish or not I spent countless hours and rather large amounts of cash trying to reach my goal. At first it did not even occur to me that I was spending more than I could have made with the product I was promoting. I was far too involved and basically I was in love with my beautiful new site and my mind was racing with the prospect of finally being able to work from the comfort of my own home.

I tried everything and bought every program I could get my hands on because I was going to make it and nothing was going to stand in my way. I thought look out Internet Mike Collins is coming so make room or face being forcibly pushed to one side. How naive is that.

I spent thousands on adwords, adsense, blog submitters, ffa submitters, programs for this programs for that. You name it I tried it. The thing is it becomes a vicious circle and a very vicious one at that. In my mind was the prospect and the vision of online success and even though my bank account told me enough was enough I just could not give up on my dream. You know the dream I speak of. Escape from the daily grind and finally discover the joy of financial independence.

I wasn't under the illusion that I was going to become a millionaire overnight or in the very near future. But it was always in the back of my mind that one day I would actually make it and finally be able to give up the back breaking manual job I have to do week in and week out.

I must have spent easily 40 or 50 hours every week trying to promote my site. I even at the advice of a so called Guru who shall remain anonymous set up my own review site and reviewed my own products. Now thats sad. Hoping to get up there with the big boys. But all to no avail.

I don't know about you but my in box is always full of the latest greatest breakthrough thats going to earn me a fortune and allow me to stop the manual work and laze about on the beach and play golf. I wouldn't mind but I don't even like golf. But no matter how many times you've been stung ripped off or whatever you might call it you always have this niggling feeling that this program might just be the one that will do it for you.

And what do you do yeah of course you buy it. I have often wondered why every program seems to cost $197.00. Is this some magical figure that supposedly makes people think ah this is not too cheap to be considered rubbish and it hasn't broken what must be some invisible barrier that of $200.00 so it s affordable.

I finally came to the conclusion that if ever I am going to make any money online I am going to do it off my own back. So I set about devising my very own system that and I'm not ashamed to say will make me some money but above all will give everyone whatever they are promoting an equal chance of actually making some money online. And do you want to know something. I am not selling it I am giving everyone the chance to use it for a limited period totally free.

Now theres a word that has long since been buried in the Gurus vocabulary. Free. It must be some kind of Internet swear word. The curse of the Internet. Something for nothing. Its surprising that we must have been conditioned to being ripped off because you mention the word Free and everyone seems to run a mile thinking this cant be right nothing in this world is free. Well this is at least for the first eight times you choose to use it after that its up to you.

But before I leave you I will just let you know that no matter what size your advertising budget is it wont give you any advantage. Money doesn't speak loudly with me. This may seem a little strange in todays world of Rip Off Thy Neighbor but I am genuinely interested in helping you and anyone you know who is struggling to actually really make a living online and if you want to play golf then thats up to you.
