“There’s a sucker born every minute” – unattributable
So, the guy said my site would get page one google results in one month. I said “AWESOME”, I need that kind of exposure. I sat back and started fantasizing about the millions I was going to rake in.
I mean C’mon, there are nearly 7 Billion potential customers at my fingertips. I don’t need all of them, even half of one percent will make me rich, and surely I can attract that with page one results!!
Yeah, that’s it, that’s the ticket, one-half of one percent of internet users. All I need is page one search results….
Three months, six months, a year – Why isn’t the money rolling in?
So the truth is a geek can spout off a litany of technological terms, and you’ll smile and nod, and have no idea what the f**k he/she just said.
Don’t feel bad, you’re in the majority.
This new type of marketing your business, which becomes more important everyday, is still completely foreign to most.
The funny thing is, that even though it’s a new language (and it is global), the principles that drive the success are the same basic, good practices business approach that people have been using for centuries. There really isn’t anything new under the sun.
The Problem is (and typically is) that scammers have identified yet another way to separate you from your money with very little effort. At this juncture in the evolution of internet marketing, John Q. Public is clueless. That will change, eventually, but what do you do in the meantime?
