So I have joined some groups on Facebook to try and get my message out there. I joined the Internet Marketing groups. I have noticed that people are still promoting the “email processing jobs”, the matrix type programs, the “send $5 and then you’ll get floods of $5 bills” and a bunch of other stuff that I can’t believe is still out there.
Please, please, please stay away from these things. They are the programs that make the rest of us who are legitimately trying to maintain an internet marketing business look bad. There are lots of programs that are legit and work and will make you money. You just have to find out which ones are the ones that have good training, good support and a good product.
What I am trying to emphasize is there are a ton of people out there that will take your money from you in a heartbeat and never look back. You could be out a lot of money and have absolutely nothing to show for it.
Now granted most of the legit businesses are based on referring. Now I know some people might think this is a four letter word but it is the truth. Whether you’re selling a product or selling a service, referrals are going to grow and sustain your business. There’s really no way around it.
These other programs that claim you can make $500 a week with just sending out postcards are total crap. Most people won’t fall for it and if someone does shouldn’t you feel bad about taking advantage? Just sayin’.
What I seem to be interested in is not necessarily selling a “product” per se but a service like traffic generation. I think this is what I plan to concentrate on. Every business needs traffic. Even a brick and mortar business needs traffic. So I think if I can find services/products that can help the marketer, whether it’s online or offline, then I think I am participating in the growth of all.
My point in this post is just to steer you away from these “jobs” that are running rampant in the Facebook Groups. I’m not saying that all of the offers and businesses in the groups on Facebook are scams, there are quite a few that are completely legit. Just keep your eyes open and if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 🙂
