Internet Marketers Making Thousands of Dollars Per Day - How Do They Do It?

Dec 25, 2007
If you currently run an online business or you have been considering starting a business from home, surely you have seen an ad claiming that you can make thousands of dollars per day from home in your jammies. Simply cough up the ridiculously low price "for a limited time" of course, and you too can enjoy the good life.

Well, like my granddaddy used to say "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while!" Like the blind squirrel, you too could be fortunate enough to buy a program, follow the authors plan and make a bundle of money in a few days time. The reality is, most if not all of the programs you see advertised show the end result of the author's efforts to market their program, not what they accomplished the day they began. Buying a "Get Rich Quick" idea makes the seller rich not the buyer, (you) in this case. But; if they can do it, why can't I?

Unfortunately, the programs you see advertised throughout cyberspace are designed to prey on your need or desire for quick money. In our instant gratification society the lure of easy money is difficult to resist. When we see a program or idea and it is presented to us in such a way that it seems impossible to fail, it is hard to resist clicking the "Buy It Now" button. What you are never told in the convincing sales letter, is that the marketer had to try over and over again to reach the level of success you see presented in front of you. A lot of research and effort went into the offer that compels you to want it.

So the numbers that are presented in the sales letters and web pages; are they real? Well, maybe they are or maybe they aren't. Grabbing an account page and "editing" the information is not that difficult; but, for the most part, the numbers are real. What you are not told is, the numbers you see are usually the efforts of hundreds or thousands of people selling the offer for the owner. The real question is; how did the owner get that many people to sell the offer for him? The simple answer is; months or years of hard work.

They do it, so can you! To be successful in Internet Marketing, you must have a plan; pick a path and stick to it. You must focus your efforts and resist the temptation to buy into any ideas that are trying to pull you in a different direction. If you are offered something that truly benefits you and your business, by all means buy it.

But, if you are offered something you are not sure of, slow down. I have a simple rule that I follow. If I receive a sales letter and I find myself becoming interested in what is being offered, I will save the offer and come back to it in a day or so. If I find I am still interested, I still resist the urge to buy and rather, I look at the way the sales offer is written and dissect the letter for its marketing value and apply it to my programs. After all, it is Internet Marketing we are doing, if someone can write something that compels me, their style is what is important to me, not necessarily the offer itself.

In a nutshell; even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while; the rest of us have to work hard to be successful at internet marketing. If you truly want to be successful, make a plan and stick to it. How do "THEY" do it? The exact same way as you and I; they made a plan and followed it. Now it's your turn; do some research and plan a business path and follow it! Maybe I'll be getting an offer from you in my email someday soon!
