A couple of days ago one of my subscribers sent me this email asking some pretty bold and challenging questions so I thought I’d answer him here in a public forum. I hope I wasn’t to firm in my response. Feel free to leave a comment.
I got your email today promoting Mike Filsaime’s “Butterfly Marketing Home Study Course” and I looked at the website but couldn’t get myself to purchase the product. There is a big part of me that wants to believe it’s possible but there is an even bigger part of me that believes you guys are all full of crap!
Yeah, I’m sure some people make money online but everything just sounds like hype to me. You know like a bunch of scammers claiming to be rich. I mean if you really have all this money why are you needing to sell me “the secret code” ?
I think the only way to make money online is just to scam people into paying you to teach them how to make money online and so on and so on. Riddle me this batman…. How much money do you really make? How do you REALLY make it? And how much does it cost you to make it? What is really profit? Why should I buy your products or those of anyone you recommend? I dont have much money and I cant just throw it away on garbage.
You’ll probably never answer this email. But I just thought I try.
Wow… well Jamison, here’s the harsh & honest truth: There is every indication that someone like yourself will fail miserably online. But the reality is that I was once just like you and some say I’ve turned out pretty well. So listen up “Robin” HERE COMES YOUR CHECK UP FROM THE NECK UP. Read on if you can humble yourself long enough to learn the truth.
Yes there are many scammers out there pretending to be something they’re not and you’ll have to make careful and calculated decisions about who you will follow and what products you will buy. But make no mistake about it, YOU WILL NEED TO FOLLOW SOMEONE AND YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS ALONG THE WAY. There is no “magic button” Jamison, and if there is I haven’t found it yet myself.
Look man, I can’t tell you what to buy or what not to buy and I can’t convince you to do something you are incapable of doing. But I can tell you this, There are thousands of ways to make an honest living from home with internet marketing and they are called “niche’s”
As for my personal income well… I am currently making an average of 10k per month online. Some months 11 and some months only 9 but on average I make $350 dollars per day. This income comes through various websites in various “niche’s” that I’ve set up.
Some money comes through Clickbank, some through Paydotcom and some through Paypal. I have several Paypal accounts and I have even incorporated my business. Obviously not all of my money is profit because like any business there are expenses. Luckily the expenses are low because I work from home but I do invest at least $500 per month on advertising also Paypal, Clickbank and Paydotcom take a small percentage as a fee. Another cost of doing business is affiliate commissions which average about $2500 per month for me. So I end up clearing about 7-7.5k per month when its all said and done. So its still about 90k or so after expenses.
Not bad for a SHLEP that could barely check his email a couple of years ago huhh? Speaking of which… I started almost exactly 2 and 1/2 years ago online and the first 18 months I made practically zero dollars. Want to know why? Simple. Because I was skeptical, reluctant and and afraid to commit or invest my time and money. Sound familiar?
Look Jamison If I had to guess, you are probably in your mid 30’s, house, wife, kids, bills and credit card debt. Am I right? That’s the demographic of most people turning to the internet these days for an alternative income in these trying economic times. I think there are many people out there that truly want to make a living from home and have an online business but they let their fears preclude them from ever succeeding. You see, It’s allot easier to assume everything is a scam than it is to actually TRY something new and risk failing.
BUT IF YOU DO…. I implore you to educate yourself. Research what people are searching for online and then create a product that they can use AND SELL IT TO THEM. Its a simple concept but it does have a technical aspect that you must learn. That’s where a mentor and the proper tools come in. I suggest you find some one that you like and relate to. Then study them before you buy from them. I may not be that guy for you …. why should you follow me? well… like anything else that just comes down to a choice that you must understand and then make on your own so the only advice I can give you is that of the Oracle in the Matrix “You’ll just have to make up your own damn mind son.”
I’ll leave you with this golden nugget, I am about to reveal a niche to you that makes me several thousand dollars per month… the “Travel” niche. This was one of the first niches I got involved in and I just kept at it and kept at it till I figured out how to get results, now the site literally runs itself. That may be something for you to look into. Click Here To See My Secret Weapon
I truly hope that you find the courage you need to take the steps online that will change your life for the better. I am here to help.
