I saw this video below about get rich quick gurus, and immediately thought of my experiences with them. It is a grey area, as you wonder whether the gurus/coaches are successful because of their students or in spite of their students. I have been to seminars where such practices are done, to a point where I thought that it is standard practice. I went to one online seminar recently, and the same practice was run.
Personally, I believe that every seminar/training that involves making money, should have a big sign that says ‘Buyer Beware’ 😀 There is no guarantee that you will succeed. Always, always do your due diligence. Especially, with these desperate times, there will always be con opportunities.
A few keywords that should be warning bells with these gurus. ‘Easy’, ‘Money making’ and ‘Millionaire opportunity’ are some of them. Think about it, whatever it is, short of marrying a very-very wealthy spouse, making good money is not easy 🙂
My actual plan was to write everyday. But, my last post was on 28th October, which you can check out here. Okay, the usual excuses was I was tangled in other matters (work especially), and I didn’t know what to write.
Then eureka, a brilliant idea, which is actually not new and quite simple. Instead of a new post, just check out an old post, revise it and post updates about it. 🙂 I am definitely gonna do this when the well of idea dries 🙂
Sometime around 2014, I bought and reviewed a product called Google Sniper. I reviewed it here, and at that time gave it a positive review. Not, anymore, you can check the post for my additional comments on it. One thing for sure, in the world of internet marketing, the technology evolves rather quickly. But, I have to admit that the marketing behind Google Sniper was good and still timeless.
I do not recommend this product. It is so outdated.
I read an article recently on an interview with Adam Khoo on his success. Adam Khoo, in short, is a successful enterpreneur, running a gamut of business offline and online. He gave a few points about his thoughts on business and life.
The summary of the article are as follows
There is a way to generate Youtube advertising revenue.
Even though you are focused on your career and other stuff, do not forget your loved ones, especially family.
Work can make us spend time away from family, but absence makes the heart grow fonder. But, do not stay away too long though.
There are various ways to generate money online. The key is to focus on one method until it works, before moving on to another method. Too many things at the same time can lead to greater failure.
I have to agree with all of the above, especially item no 4. Been guilty of it as well.
In then world of Internet Marketing, it is common to go looking for new knowledge or information. Lately, I was thinking why my internet business was going a bit stale. It is definitely not to the lack of knowledge. A look at my hard disk shown me tonnes of IM programs and tools that I have. So, for a few hours I sat in deep thought wondering what is wrong. Then I realized the answer… I was in this situation because of my hunger for knowledge. Yes, my hunger and thirst for knowledge has lead me to not doing well in my internet business.
Yep, my thirst for knowledge lead me to where I am. Allow me to explain. Simply, I was looking for knowledge and information of internet marketing without actually applying the knowledge/information learnt first. So, I kept jumping from knowledge A to ebook B to seminar C .. and the list goes on and on …. in the end, what do I have? yeah, you guessed it .. INFORMATION OVERLOAD!
So I did a bit of research especially from the IM ‘seniors’ to rectify and avoid this problem in the future. There were two major points outlined
1-Don’t Buy Any IM Related Stuff For The Next Few Months
Don’t buy anything else in the IM arena until you have finished reading AND applying what you have in your hard drive. Basically, begin with what you already have/bought. From what I see, a lot of IM stuff (especially WSOs) are recycled stuff that have been published. Go through what you have first, applied it and see the results. Need further info, uncle Google is around …. 🙂
2- Focus on ONE method/technique Until You Succeed
There are so many methods / technique of IM nowadays. From blogging to FB Ads, there are so many options. Do not follow the current. For example, right now FB Ads is the current ‘in’ thing. Do you need to go and buy the latest FB Ads course, while you have a Google Adwords course that you had purchased that you have not yet finished.
Well, I learnt my lesson and shall be applying these lessons to my online business. I would focus on what I have, apply it first, and then proceed. So far, it is working to a certain extent 🙂 and hopefully for the rest of my IM business life.
I did a review of Google Sniper 2.0 Internet Marketing Program in powerpoint and posted it on Slideshare. Might as well share the presentation here as well. I have used Google Sniper and have found it to be an effective tool. Of course, with all other programs, you need to put in the work ya 😉 Enjoy the review below.
30/10/21 update – the presentation is long gone. I do not recommend it anymore. I bought it and in the end, there are some bits and pieces, but overall, nah, don’t bother. There are a few negative reviews of the product, and I do agree with them, such as this one by Stopping Scams. For 2021 and ahead, his stuff is outdated. Fyi, I still have my digital copies of this product and the upsell, Traffic Ultimatum. It was a hot selling Clickbank product at one time, and it owes more to George Brown’s brilliant marketing work.
The famous Shoemoney System that was produced by famous internet marketer, Jeremy Shoemaker is now available for free. All you have to do is go to the signup page here, enter your name and email and you get access to all PDFs and videos of the Shoemoney.
What you would get are 7 modules ( each module has a PDF and a ton of videos related to the module ) plus an introductory PDF – the Shoemoney Beginner’s Guide.
Personally, there are a lot of stuff and a few of them are nuggets of gold especially for IMers. Considering it was sold for hundreds of dollars a few years ago, there are some good stuff there worthy of your attention 🙂
Well, this is my first official English in this blog, other than the standard WordPress opener. Will write more, I promise. This blog will serve as my IM blog in English. I have a Malay site for that as well, but this site is more for my international readers 🙂
