Go on the internet and do research on any hundreds or maybe even thousands of online business opportunities out there and I guarantee you will find negative comments on probably all of them. Multitudes of people screaming SCAM and RIP-OFF! It’s enough to make a wannabe online entrepreneur gasp in desperation of not being able to find a legitimate opportunity.
But is this really the case? In my experience the answer is a big resounding NOPE! I can write for days on this topic so I will try my best to give more of a “30,000 foot view” instead.
As I see it, by virtue of its low cost of start-up needed, the boundless opportunities available online, the proverbial “grass-is-greener-on-the-other-side” mentality, the internet and affiliate business industry is very transient. It attracts the tire-kicker, people looking to get something for nothing and a general lack of business know-how.
People want to get rich and they want it now, and those advertising these opportunities promise them as much just to draw them in which is wrong. It not only wrongs the individual person, but the industry as a whole. That’s why they are labelled scams. And it’s unfortunate.
In my research over the years, I have found there to be very few real legitimate business opportunities relative to the hundreds and thousands offered out there. But they are out there if you are diligent in your research, know what to look for and follow the system laid out for you.
Easy right? Well, let me go over what makes people fail in this industry, how to NOT fail and why there are not as many scams out there as the cynics and “ex would-be entrepreneurs” would have you believe.
So, one thing I noticed after reading many scam posts and rip-off websites is that the majority of these people did not actually work the business. They do what most people do, which is they buy the membership, product or service that is supposed to help them succeed and they do nothing with it.
They get the information, read it over, decide it’s too much work, so they do nothing and then complain the business is a rip-off! I know that sounds absurd, but it’s true. Sometimes you have to read between the lines of a lot of these posts and maybe understand the lingo to get what they are saying, but there it is in black and white.
If you got rid of those types of “scam posts”, I believe that would eliminate the vast majority of scam and rip-off reports on the internet.
Another reason for the failures that make up the scam reports are well intentioned online entrepreneurs who try to work the business, but either do it their own way instead of what is taught, try to do too may business opportunities at one time leading to a lack of focus or they choose a business they are not really passionate about and only interested in the monetary aspect of it. With all that said, they might as well have picked a scam.
Now what about successes? How do you achieve success in the affiliate internet marketing industry? How do you separate the online opportunity wheat from the chaff? Honestly, it takes a long time of research and education about this industry to pick the winners from the losers and the scams and rip-offs from the legitimate businesses.
“Oh great” you say. “Now what the heck do I do?” Well, this is what you have to do:
- Commit to finding the best affiliate – internet marketing opportunity for you.
- Once you have found it, focus on that opportunity and follow the system exactly from those that teach it.
- Do the work that is required to succeed and nothing less.
In summary, there are plenty of legitimate opportunities to choose from online. Many people just like you and me have found good opportunities. All you have to do is work it and take it seriously. If you do that, you will succeed and won’t be one of those whiners and complainers you see all over the internet.
