5 Biggest Internet Business Myths:
You have heard people say Internet Business is a waste of time, you will not make money, there is no real money to be made online, it will never work and so many other negative words coming from people who don’t really understand this Internet Business industry.
The thing is, it works. Why do some people make a fortune and others don’t even make any money at all? Simply because the people who make thousands or millions of money knew all the lies in this business and they will not trust those lies.
So what is this big lie on the internet? Here are the 10 Big Lies on the Internet You Should Know:
1. Starting and running an internet business is expensive
Did you know that you can start your business at no cost? You can actually earn your income by joining a really high quality affiliate program. Usually, as an affiliate marketer, your job is only focused on marketing. All tracking, product delivery, answering customer questions, etc. are insured by the owner of the program.
Usually, the statement “expensive” often comes from people who live in non-US countries, especially if the country’s local currency is lower than that of the US dollar. If it is not a problem of currency, it is a problem of vision. See and think small to become small. See and think big, and your results will tend to match your thoughts.
2. You can earn money easily through the Internet
Most people believe that you can make money overnight and by doing nothing at all. If that’s what you have in mind right now, this myth is what distinguishes the realist from the unrealistic. You’ve probably heard stories of how people earn 5-6 figure income in the shortest amount of time imaginable.
These stories might be true, but did you know that most of them have failed so miserably multiple times before you could actually make any money? They have learned from their mistakes and move on. It may seem that some gurus succeed overnight with the wild numbers that some people have brought in over the course of a day or a week by selling information or products online.
Some interesting facts about overnight success – it normally takes months, if not years, to figure it out. In other words, they prepare, they create joint ventures, they prepare and then build anticipation for a launch – then BOOM it explodes!
3. You must know HTML, programming and graphic design to start your business
You don’t need to know all of this at all. Period. In fact, one of the biggest shocks was the discovery that most of today’s top gurus don’t have the first clue on how to build a web page.
These gurus were making more money because they knew how to reach people. They either outsource for professional help or create joint ventures with others who can make up for their lack of knowledge in any of these areas.
In fact, most successful people are truly successful because they only focus their time on what makes them successful.
If you want to build your web pages without having to learn programming, HTML, and design, just find someone else who can do it for you. There are many professional web designers that you can find on the internet that you can hire to design your web pages exactly the way you want.
4. On the Internet, it is not necessary to know how to sell.
This statement has prompted people who hate to sell are drawn to advertisements that say “no sale required”. Think for a moment, is there any logic that you can make money without doing anything at all? Usually these programs are generally inapplicable and some are operated by night operators.
In this business, don’t try to sell to other people. Instead, you educate your potential customers. Show people what their life would be like with what you are offering and you will have a sale without selling anything at all!
5. You don’t have to create a mailing list at all
Laughing out loud – it’s like saying, “I don’t want to be in business”. Put this in your head, your mailing list is as important to you as the “Yellow Pages” is to a conventional B2B business.
“The money is in the list”. You probably have the Heard this from most of the gurus out there. But you should also have this word in your mind: “The money is in the relationship”. The idea of networking with people is not appealing to most people who hate to sell.
Remember, however, that you are not selling anything. You are simply showing people their life and how easily it can be improved by what you have to offer.
All of the above are just a few of the big lies on the internet. In fact, there are a lot more lies on the internet that you should avoid. You have to be smart to really be successful as you could imagine. Success is like enlightenment. It is a path and not a destination.
