Financial freedom is something that all of us desire to achieve. Financial freedom can be completed in many ways. Some require luck, and others depend on others. There is an option to rely on luck and direct help from others. It’s called BECOMING YOUR OWN GOAL.
You can take possession of your life by becoming your boss. There are many ways to make your life better. E-COMMERCE is the best way to make an income. Why not? You can start making an online income if you own a computer and have internet access (which millions of people have daily). You can form your journey to financial freedom by creating or discovering a product/service that you can market. You are now in the INTERNET MARKETING world.
If you are familiar with internet marketing, you might find opportunities that claim you can make money in a matter of hours or that you can start making $10k per month. Some of these opportunities may also tell you it is “free” to make money online. Let me address some common misconceptions that you might have about Internet Marketing and reveal the Truth behind each one. Before I go into the elements, let me show you an example of a myth I encountered years ago while searching for a business opportunity.
I desired to pay for my college education. 1987 was the year I graduated from Howard University in Washington DC. My mother spent a portion of my tuition at the time. The rest was covered by financial aid. It was difficult for my mother to pay for college, so I tried to find a way to help her.
Although I can’t remember exactly where the opportunity was, I recall an advertisement that said MAKE MONEY BY SUFFERING ENVELOPES. The Internet wasn’t available, so I had to mail the information. A week later, I received the letter by mail. I began to read the letter and became excited about the possibility of making money. Some of the points mentioned in the letter I still remember.
It first mentioned how easy it was to make money by stuffing envelopes and getting paid. It would then ask how many envelopes you can seal per month.10?50?100?300?My excitement grew as I read this.”YES! I can seal 300 envelopes and more.”
Next, the letter emphasized the amount you could make. I can make between $2k and $5k per month.
Let’s say that the letter was all about how much money you could make. This would be enough to get anyone interested in signing up. The letter contained a $24.95 price, which you would need to pay to begin stuffing envelopes. After spending the fee, I sent my order form. I thought to myself: not only will my college expenses be covered, but I’ll also be able to Christmas shop during the holiday season.
After receiving the report, I was shocked when I found out that it contained errors. This report revealed that I needed to place advertisements to solicit other people who wanted to stuff envelopes. Then I would need to send the same letter to interested parties as I received before, hence the name “Stuffing Emblems.”It was suggested in the report that you place an ad on the National Inquirer. You wouldn’t believe the number of STUFFING ENVELOPES ads I saw when I purchased the National Inquirer. There were countless ads.UGGHHH!!!!!
A chain letter scam was the stuffing envelope scheme. These tactics are illegal today, but there were many of these business scams at the time. These opportunities are all about deceit. The trick is to convince the person reading your letter how much they can make. You then put a price tag on it and, after the prospect pays, reveal the Truth about the offer. Many business opportunities today employ the same strategies. They will tell you everything you need to know about making lots of money and how easy it is for you to do that. You will get the Truth about this opportunity once you have paid the fee or signed up to receive emails. This deception is why so many Internet Marketers fail. A person looking to be their boss may stumble upon a business opportunity that deceives them. After paying or opting in, they will say one thing and then say another. This can be not very encouraging.
Below are six myths and the truths surrounding internet marketing.
MISCONCEPTION 1: YOU CAN MAKE OVERNIGHT MONEY
This is the biggest misconception about Internet Marketing. Many business opportunities promise quick money. They don’t mean you can make money overnight. But you can make it fast.
The Truth is that you can make quick money by winning the lottery, winning big at casinos, winning sports betting, or obtaining cash from your inheritance. It is impossible to make money in internet marketing overnight if you start from scratch. Internet marketing is not a quick way to make it rich overnight. Making money as an Internet Marketer can be slow and tedious. Even the most well-known Internet Marketers will admit that it took them months or even years to make any real money.
MISCONCEPTION #2 – YOU CAN’T MAKE MONEY ONLINE
The misconception many people also believe that online business opportunities are fraudulent, and therefore making money online is a fantasy.
The Truth is that legitimate online business opportunities can generate a good income. If you want to grow in your online business, you must follow specific procedures. You must treat your online business like a mom-and-pop shop. It will require you to work hard to make it successful. You can earn a significant online income with time (and a small investment).
MISCONCEPTION #3 – FREE…FREE…ALLTHING’S FREE!!
The Misconception: Internet Marketing is all about free. These opportunities claim they can make you money online and that they offer a free service.
The Truth is that you won’t be able to make $10k per week with an opportunity you got for free. These business prospects will tell you that you can make a significant income with no money out of pocket. However, once you opt-in (which means you signed in to receive future emails), you will receive emails from them in which they will “upsell,” trying to convince you to purchase an opportunity to make money. You can’t make money with a business opportunity that gives you everything for free. It’s incredible, right? Imagine if you could make $10k per month and not spend a penny of your own money. Then there would be more Internet Marketers who are successful.
MISCONCEPTION #4 – “YOU CAN MAKE $1,000 IN JUST 7 DAYS!”
The Misconception: Chances are you’ve seen opportunities that promise you a certain amount in a short time. I’ve seen videos where people claimed that they made more than $1000 in a week after starting the opportunity.
The Truth: A seasoned Internet Marketer who has established a strong business relationship with many people (i.e., A large number of email subscribers to be able to launch a new business and make at least 1,000 dollars per week. If you spend a lot on advertising, it could make this amount of money. It is unlikely that anyone, especially not someone new to internet marketing, will be able to generate this amount of money within the first seven days of starting to promote the business. Many business opportunities exaggerate their earnings to convince you to sign up. A legitimate company should tell you more about the prospect than the potential earnings.
MISCONCEPTION #5 – “IT IS SO SIMPLE THAT EVEN TEN-YEAR-OLDS CAN DO IT!”
The Misconception: If a business opportunity states that a ten-year-old can run the business, it tells you that money will come quickly.
Truth: This statement would make it far easier for Internet Marketers to make a significant income online. A business opportunity would be so simple that you don’t need to spend four years in college to earn a bachelor’s degree. You would only need to market this business to make money. There is no “simple” business opportunity. To make your business grow and start earning income, you will still need to put in a lot of effort and money.
MISCONCEPTION #6 – “YOUR WEBSITE WILL BE VISITED BY THOUSANDS.”
The Misconception: Some systems claim to increase traffic to your site or link. The Truth is that this exaggeration is used to convince you to sign up or purchase their system. They don’t mention that to get thousands of visits to your website, your must pay, and even if you do pay, it is not guaranteed that you’ll get as many views. You might also get opinions from other Internet Marketers looking to promote their site or link. Advertising is the only way to increase traffic to your site.
These business opportunities and systems may exaggerate their offers to convince you to sign up or pay for their programs. You must realize that building a $10k per monthly business is not something you can do overnight. You will need to work hard to grow your business. You will succeed if you use the right tools.
