6 Internet Marketing Myths

By: goalsetter

Every day thousands of people go online to make money
but most of them fail miserably because they either
truly believe one of the 6 Internet Marketing Myths or
or all of them. You can read them below and discover
the grain of salt in all of them.

Myth #1: Internet Marketing is EASY

This is probably the biggest myth of all, and let me
tell you Internet marketing is hard, 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
no sales staff and virtually no overhead, but a lot of
work is still involved.

Myth #2: ANYONE Can Make Money Online

Folks, this is simply not true. Unless someone gets off
their 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.

Myth #3: You Can "GET RICH QUICK" On the Net!

This is the trap that a lot of newbie internet marketers
falls into including myself when I first started, 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 especially a sense of

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 internet marketing 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,
that's it. You can't expect to make money selling free stuff
and ask others to do the same. Folks! it takes money to
make money.

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 compete with the better which in turn will make them
more money.

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
and the number of people going online is increasing also.

Myth #6: The BIG Money Talk is JUST HYPE

As I've told you before, "it takes money to make money?"
Well it's true, although you will be hard pressed to find
experienced internet marketers 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.
It's a fact that the people that makes alot of money online also spends
alot of money on advertising, tools, resources and know how
to get the job done.

If you are willing to take the necessary action to make
'big money' happen for you - it will. It takes time.
You can criticize, be skeptical and sure that 'big money'
can't happen for you - and it won't. Sit down and write
a financial and a sound business plan. Local Chamber of
Commerce can give all the info you need to get started.

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 but it just doesn't happen overnight. You just
have to apply a bit of common sense into it, find what you
love to do, have a game plan, stay focus and you my
friend might find the right opportunity to make all your
dreams come true.
