Experts and Gurus and Hype – Oh My!
There is an abundance of advice available out there in Internet Marketing land.
There is so much advice out there about how to make money online that it can make your head spin.
One “Guru” after the other tells us the “best” way to make money online.
One “Expert” after the other tells us “the real way” to succeed in Internet Marketing.
Sometimes we can get some pretty solid advice from folks who have “been there, done that and are still doing it.”
You would think that is the best advice to get – advice from those who have experience in the Online Business jungle.
But that is unfortunately not always the case.
Separating “fact” from opinion.
Although many of our marketing friends may have a wealth of knowledge and experience, that does not necessarily mean that the way they do what they do is the right way for someone else. Some people have VERY strong opinions about how to do this and that online. Some of these opinions are the result of the successes and failures they have experienced along their road to “success.” Even though this advice may be quite solid and trustworthy, does it mean that if we follow the same path that we are going to have the same degree of success? Not really.
There are so many people out there who say “you can’t make money doing it this way,” or “that area of Internet Marketing won’t make you any money,” or “that form of advertising doesn’t work.” How often have we heard theses things? Has the advice always been correct? For every piece of information I get about how something “does not work,” I get other information about how that very same thing has worked very well.
What this tells us is that there is a difference between fact and opinion. Just because someone has a strong opinion about something doesn’t make it a fact. And just because someone has been very successful at doing things a certain way does not mean that the way they do things will work for everyone.
It really gets on my nerves sometimes when folks act like their product or service is “the best thing since sliced bread.” Mind you, it might be a very good product or service – one that will even stand out in the competition, but that does not mean that it is the product or service for ME. Or I may like certain aspects of it if it is a service, but other aspects of it not as much.
I don’t know if others run into that problem, but it is something that absolutely annoys me!
It has been a while since my last post. I hope to be able to post more often in the future.
Thanks for reading my blah blah blah.
Please leave your comments – that is what makes the whole “system” work.
Oh, by the way, I have a new page on my website called “Marketing Reports & Ebooks.”
Till next time!
Yours in Success,
