People lie, it’s the truth. Some do it on purpose in order to gain something while there are those that are just born liars. When it comes to business, it’s the same thing. Some people use lies in order to sell something but when it comes to internet marketing, you need to be really careful about who to trust.
As we all know, when it comes to the life online, you can never really tell who is telling the truth unless their intentions are genuine. Having an online business is even harder since there are no actual face to face interactions with the people you are dealing with! But if you want to protect your investments, here are some of the common lies that you will hear from internet marketers. Learn them and be careful not to fall prey with it.
“Join our free Webinar for better ranking” / “Our Webinar can help you increase your income to ________” – or something like that. You may have an idea about what I am talking about as these ads can be found everywhere. First of all, there’s no such thing as a “FREE” webinar. Everything has a price these days. Webinars need money for funds too so expect that their so-called free webinars has a catch. Watch out for product endorsements being shoved down your throat and registration fees which will ask for your money. Plus, Webinar hosts needs income too! If they don’t ask for fees then I am sure that they won’t make this a living. Ask any Webinar master that you know, they do and will charge fees.
Understand that no one is stupid enough (excuse my French) to give out free information these days, especially when it comes to internet marketing and tools that can be used for search engine optimization. So in case someone offers you this, better be careful about accepting anything.
“It’s so Easy to Make Money online! With these few clicks you can earn as much as XXXXXXX” – REALLY? Easy money? There’s no such thing as easy money! You can’t earn anything from clicking. Sure this looks like a very convincing ad but let’s be real here, you and I both know that easy money is never easy. Even the President of the United States has to work in order to earn his income! Be smart about this. There’s always a catch behind all the convincing ads, LIES I tell you. If you are not careful, you may just find yourself out of money.
“This is our Secret Method to a successful online business!” – Sometimes I can see this type of internet marketing campaign in catchy, attractive and almost convincing post. I feel sorry for those who are lured into this kind of strategy. To tell you the truth, there is NO SECRET METHOD. I have been working around SEO for some time and all I know is that, whatever SEO teams do to give their clients the ranking they need is done with tested and proven methods. So even if they tell you that this is and that is their method, trust me, they only said that to convince you.
In conclusion, if you really want to be successful in this business, seek only for the truth. As I have said, people tell lies and they do all the time and in the world of internet marketing, competition is fierce. However, this does not mean you have to be that gullible too. If you know what to look for and you watch out for internet marketing schemes, you will not be misled.
