Every day, thousands of individuals go online to make money, yet most fail horribly because they believe one or more of the six Internet Marketing Myths. You may read them all below and find the grain of salt in each one.
Myth 1: Internet marketing is SIMPLE.
This is arguably the most common LIE of all. Let me tell you that Internet marketing is complicated requires time and effort, not to mention money, and anybody who tells you differently is trying to sell you a load of crap. Granted, it’s simpler than brick and mortar in that there’s no inventory to handle, no shipment of items, no sales personnel, and almost no overhead, but there’s still a lot of effort required.
Myth 2: ANYONE CAN MAKE MONEY ON THE INTERNET.
This is just not true, people. They will never earn a dollar on the internet until they get out of their lazy boy chair and download/read all they can learn about internet marketing and have an action plan in place. MAKE NOTHING, DO NOTHING.
Myth 3: You can “GET RICH FAST” on the internet!
When I first started, why did so many novice internet marketers fall into this trap, including myself? Because fraudsters make it seem so simple, and believe me when I say that following “get rich fast schemes” is a WASTE OF TIME, MONEY, AND ENERGY. It will not happen quickly; instead, do a study to determine what people want and want, and then provide it to them, particularly a feeling of realism.
Myth 4: Doing Business Online Is Free.
This is one of my widespread misunderstandings because I believed it during my first year of internet marketing, and it just wasn’t true back then, and it still isn’t true now. In comparison to creating your coffee shop or gift store in downtown Los Angeles, the expense of starting and maintaining an online company is relatively inexpensive. Once your domain is set up, you must pay for internet access, advertising, and continuing education. You can’t expect to generate money by giving away free items and expecting others to do the same. Folks! Making money necessitates the expenditure of funds.
Myth 5: It is TOO LATE to Begin an Internet Business.
Most internet marketers would love to hear individuals say things like, “It’s too late now, there are too many competitors, I should simply pack my bags and go home, the internet is too difficult, etc…” Do you know why? The fewer individuals they have to compete with, the better, which will earn them more money.
The reality is that it is never too late to begin anything, even an online company. I am a staunch believer in the internet’s long-term viability, and you should be as well. Statistics demonstrate that the number of individuals buying online grows each year, as do their spending amounts and the number of people going online.
Myth 6: The Big Money Talk is JUST HYPE
“It takes money to make money,” as I’ve said previously. True, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find seasoned online marketers who will tell you how much they spend on promotion and advertising. Sometimes you have to keep digging to uncover the truth in all of the commotion you read. It’s a truth that individuals that earn a lot of money online also spend a lot of money on advertising, tools, resources, and knowing how to get the job done.
If you are prepared to take the required steps to make ‘huge money’ happen for you, it will. It takes time. You may critique, be critical, and be sure that ‘huge money will not happen for you – and it will not. Sit down and create an excellent financial and business strategy. The local Chamber of Commerce can provide you with all the information you want to get started.
If you feel you will succeed, you are correct; if you believe it will not work, you are right as well.
To conclude, you’ve probably heard tales of individuals earning a fortune on the internet and how simple it is, but the fact is that some of these stories aren’t out of this world or impractical, and they don’t happen overnight. You only need to use some common sense, figure out what you like doing, create a game plan, and remain focused, and you could discover the proper chance to make all of your goals come true.
Confidence is not achieved overnight.
It can be achieved by learning from mistakes,
it can be achieved by learning from experience.
