6 Biggest Internet Marketing Myths
by Paul Penafiel
In every myth there is an element of truth. Read the
sections below to discover the grain of truth in all of
these Internet marketing myths.
Myth #1: Internet Marketing is EASY
This is probably the biggest myth of all, and let me
tell you Internet marketing takes time, effort not
mention money and anyone who suggests otherwise is
trying to sell you a bunch of horse hockey. Granted
that it's comparatively easier to brick and mortar in
that there's no inventory to carry, no shipping of goods
and virtually no overhead, but a lot of work is still
Affiliate marketing eliminates the cost of production,
construction and employees.
Myth #2: ANYONE Can Make Money Online
Folks, this is simply not true. Unless someone gets off
that lazy boy recliner and download/read everything they
can about internet marketing, and put an action plan in
motion, they will never make a dime on the internet.
DO NOTHING, MAKE NOTHING.
Myth #3: You Can "GET RICH QUICK" On the Net!
This is the trap that a lot of newbie internet marketers
falls into, why because scammers make it sounds so easy and
let me tell you, chasing "get rich quick scheme" is a
waste of time, money and energy. It just won't happen
overnight, instead do some research and find out what people
really want and need then give it to them.
Myth #4: It's FREE to Do Business Online
This is one of my favorite myths because I believed it
during my first year of marketing online and it just wasn't
true then, it isn't true today. Compared to opening your
first coffee shop or gift shop in downtown Los Angeles,
internet business start-up cost and maintenance cost is
pretty low. Once you have your domain set up, you only pay
for internet connection, advertising and ongoing educations,
Myth #5: It's TOO LATE to Start an Internet Business
Most super affiliate marketers would love to hear people
say "It's too late now, too many competitions, I should
just pack my bags and go home, the internet is too complicated, etc...". You know why? the less people they
have to competewith the better which in turn will make them
The fact is, it's never ever too late to start anything and
that includes internet business. I firmly believe that the
internet is not going anywhere and you should too. Every
year the stats will show you the number of people shopping
online are increasing, their spending dollars are growing
Myth #6: The BIG Money Talk is JUST HYPE
Have you heard of the phrase, "it takes money to make money?"
Well it's true, although you will be hard pressed to find
super affiliate to tell how much they spend on promoting and
advertising. Sometimes, you have to dig a little deeper
to find the truth in every hype you read.
If you are willing to take the necessary action to make
'big money' happen for you - it will.
Or criticize, be skeptical and sure that 'big money' can't
happen for you - and it won't. If you believe that you
will succeed you're right, if you believe that it won't
work, you're right also.
To summarize, you have heard people's story how they're
making a fortune on the internet and how easy it is but
the reality is some stories are not out of this world or
unrealistic. You just have to apply a bit of common sense
into it, find what you love to do and you my friend might
find the right opportunity to make all your dreams come true.
