Yep. Heard it before.
In fact, my family still say it to me. Especially when I disappear for days on end setting up new sites.
“What are you doing?”
“Surely it can’t take that long!”
“Why are you bothering anyway?”
“Just get a real job!” … Yeah, right!
Love that last one. I’ve had a real job. Many of them. Now I run businesses. One offline. Many online.
So, when you hear people saying this business is a scam, they may not be talking about people like you and me. They’re talking about the equivalent of the ‘used-car-salesman’ type of internet marketer and regrettably there’s more than enough of them around.
This business is genuine. IF you are running it as a business. Flick the idea of “you can have a website up and running in 27 minutes pouring money into your account while you sleep”.
Firstly, it isn’t going to happen that fast. Sure you can get a website up and running in 27 minutes (in fact way less time than that) … but it’s going to take a lot longer to get the “cash-sucking” systems and techniques in place and THEN you have to give it time for the web traffic to get to you … oh, and then you have to make sure when you get people hitting your site that you convert them into doing something you want them to do.
So, if you are coming from a standing start and expect to be sitting on the beach with your laptop going kerching … get real now.
Good. We’ve burst that bubble.
Now, if you are still with me let’s get into learning what works and what doesn’t.
