The 6 Truths Behind Online Marketing

Valued Reader,

In my opinion, through much trial and error where I experienced a lot more of the latter due to the 6 things they don’t Tell You. But the reasons for not telling you justifies the silence, because the truth leaves a really bad taste and have a nasty habit of inspiring despair.

The Number 1 Truth – You Will Not be making money tomorrow, or next week and even next month. I know, and I’m sure you have that bad taste I was referring to earlier right? It doesn’t change the fact due to one simple little necessity.

The products you will be promoting as a successful affiliate marketer Must All Come with a Back Door, kind of like a safety net in the form of a 100% No Questions Asked 60 Day Money back Guarantee. So even if you had a sale tomorrow (Which You Won’t), you still need to honor the 60 day waiting period before the Product Vendor will release your commissions.

Online Success

The Number 2 Truth – The Sport Cars and Yachts with the lovely Island Condos, and blue beaches…and two weeks later your dreams are shattered. It sucks, I know believe me but the real kicker is that in some cases it’s in fact the truth. There are professional affiliate marketers earning Thousands of dollars per day, after like 10 years of exceptionally hard work and research. These guys literally worked almost 24/7, because most of them still had a day job to sustain for an income when they got started. They sacrificed the needed time, which can only be determined by each individual separately. They spent their money, fuelled by the fascination of the long term goal of Financial Freedom and they refused to give up!

Rule Of Life Applies – What you put in is what you get out, and little effort with minute determination will result in an equal to income. There’s that bad taste again, bear with me.

The Number 3 Truth – There are Literally Hundreds of Thousands of Affiliate marketers competing With You. ClickBank Alone have close on 200,000 Affiliates and each one of them is trying to earn a commission. So no, the chances of you shining as a Professional amid a Disgustingly Large Crowd is slim to none…and there’s that taste again! If you want to stand out your Best Kung Fu in this “Fight” Is Content, and you will not have that unless you have tested the product you wish to promote. So yes, you Will Spend Money if you want to Make Money.

Online Marketing Truth

Get used to the taste, there’s more;

The Number 4 Truth – Those traffic Packages you’ve been spending hundreds of dollars on with Zero R.O.I (Return on Investment), just stop it already! The chances of you generating actual Sales Online with that is slim to none at best…Why? Because in my opinion, and after wasting the same amounts of money I realized something. None of these “Clicks” were even remotely interested in my offer. Yes, with bounce rates as high as 90% I fail to see any interest from that Visitor.

Now a bounce rate is basically an indication of how many “Visitors” just opened your URL, and left which is completely pointless I’m sure you’ll agree? The shocker is that the Majority of Super Successful Affiliate Marketers do Not Pay a Cent for Traffic! Because they all have their own Blogs, Websites, eBooks, Products, Articles, Groups, Pages, Communities, Impressive Social Profiles and a Vault of Information. Yes, THAT’S how much work Online Success Is.

The Number 5 Truth – That Nice 24/7 Holiday, snap out of it already! There Is NO Magic Button that will turn your PC into a money spitting ATM! If your 9 – 5 job is getting the better of you, then you seriously need to reconsider your strategy. You are going to be working harder than you ever have in any job or position you hold in any company. And you will be fortunate if you can afford an Island holiday in 5 Years’ Time.

Making Money Online

The Number 6 Truth – All those Social Profiles you have with the Thousands of Followers and Friends, from whom you never receive anything but sales pitches? Cut yourself lose because you’re going to find it extremely difficult to stand out. How many of your Friends, Followers and Community Members are in fact targeted to your Profitable Niche?

Wait, hang on…what’s your Profitable Niche? And this is where I say we add the crème de la crème of bad tasting Sauce to this meal. Your Profitable Niche is where your actual starting point should be. Not your own Blog, or Website and even your Email List because everything you do online must be targeted or not even attempted.

And that brings us to the extent of my Bitch-Craft (The Art of Upsetting People by Telling Them the Truth)…for now. I’ll try to go a little easier next time, but I sincerely hate to sugar coat the truth in a desperate attempt to a sale.

Just because the truth leaves a bad taste, doesn’t mean it is lesser the truth. It only confirms your suspicion.

But there’s Light at the End of the Tunnel – Allow reality to set in, get comfortable and accept the fact that your Primary Focus is learning. NOT EARNING, Learning as much as you possibly can about your Niche. It starts with Testing Your First Product, and consider it as Pure Learning where you expect nothing but progress (Not Perfection). Whatever system you decide to test, be sure that the training starts with Keyword Research.

Making Easy Money

I know I sound like a Broken Record, but that is the One and Only Secret of Successful Affiliate Marketing. Now you may want to take a look at one of the training programs I find second to none when it comes to WordPress and Search Engine Optimization.

In fact, most of my own Blogging tactics I have learned I have done so with this exact system and I’m a member to this day! What I like most, is the fact that it starts by guiding you to discover your profitable Niche first and then on to Keywords. But please, I have to remind you that it is not a Magic Button because I cannot offer what I cannot provide.

I have to warn you however, as the video does start with rather impressive figures. But bear in mind the fact that it is an indication of what is Possible not Imminent, and the guy earning those figures does not have One Blog. He may very well have a few Hundred Blogs, with keyword rich content, constantly updating.

You may want to take a Look at the Video Here, because I am convinced this is the best place for you to start your journey, and yes there is a “Back Door” as I have mentioned earlier. But please take your time, set realistic monthly goals, because you’re about to start a journey to which there is no final destination

Wishing You Prosperity,

  1. While I agree with many of the points you’ve made I believe there is a place for anyone who wants to build a business Online. I think that 2 people or 5 or 1000 may carry the same message or promote the same offers. Each of them will resonate with some and not others.

    There are many factors that lead to building a legacy online but it does require hard work, perseverance and a “don’t stop until” mentality.

    There are a lot of things to overcome to see real success online but I believe that is the very thing that separates the wheat from the chaff.

    I appreciate the fact that your article helps to illuminate people’s vision of what is actually involved in building a business online! Thank you.

    • Hi Mimi,

      Pleasure making your acquaintance, and welcome to my blog. I have had a few requests on how to make fast money easy and free online, which is why I decided to write this post. I feel that the idea of “Instant Riches’ is too often over exploited, and misleading most people resulting in disappointment. Took me a few years to see real results, especially with WordPress and S.E.O which has been my Primary focus because nothing drives traffic like S.E.O. I have done a quick analysis of your site, you have a 60% Google Rating which you can check here – http://smallseotools.com/website-seo-score-checker

      You may want to visit one of my other blogs, and learn how to fix those few areas and boost your Google Rating above 80% – http://easyinternetmoneyandjobs.com – Have a lovely weekend, talk soon.

      Warm regards,

      • Hi Mimi,

        Only a pleasure, suppose it shows that I’m a bit of an S.E.O junkie. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any help with pretty much anything online. I have failed more times than I care to remember, and believe me when I say “Practice Does make Perfect”. Just a phrase used by my English teacher back in school, I remember it to this day.

        Wishing You Prosperity,
