Making Money Schemes
I’m sure everyone has seen headlines like the one above, right? So the question is, do they exist? Amazingly enough, yes they do! The difficult part is finding them, and having the discipline to do them.
I started dabbling in promoting affiliate programs about ten years ago and, like thousands of others, bought one product after another, all claiming to be the answer to everyone’s prayers. Sound familiar? Yes I’m sure almost everyone reading this blog will have experienced the same thing.
So, like everyone else, I wondered where could I look to get honest advice. Who do you trust? Are all the people selling how-to-make-money courses downright liars, or are there some that actually work?
Well, to my surprise, there are some easy money making schemes that work! The trick was to figure out which ones.
Actually what I found was that in fact most of the programs I bought could actually work. The real problem was that very few people stick with them long enough to give them a chance to work. Be honest, how many programs have you bought that you have done exactly what the course says, to the letter, and long enough to give it a chance to work? Very few people do. I know. I was one of them. There was always a new scheme popping up that promised even greater riches, quicker and easier.
What I also discovered, as I’m sure most of you have, is that many of them are selling the exact same methods, often disguised as something different. In fact with many of them, I am convinced they spent 90% of their time creating the sales page, and 10% creating the product! I mean some of the sales pages, and in particular, the sales videos are fantastic, offering “proof” that you can make gazillions of dollars every day for 5 minutes work. I also found that the bigger the promise in the sales pitch, the more disappointed I was in the product.
But anyway, I could go on whinging for hours, and that’s not going to help anybody, least of all me. So in all my blog posts after this one, I will be focussing mostly on good news – tips to help you get going if you are a newbie, and advanced tips if you have been going for a while and may be struggling a bit. Okay, see you in the next post.
