How Do You Know What’s Real

How Do You Know What’s Real?

I’m ba-a-ack.  I’ve been on a sabbatical, of sorts, for a little over a year now, and I’ve decided that it’s time to get serious.  I’m back and I’m hungry (otherwise known as broke) for some real internetwork marketing and the resultant income that should naturally follow.

I’ve been doing some considerable research (on sites other than Wealthy Affiliates but don’t ask me why) and now I’m confused about the true direction of internetwork marketing with respect to making money onLine.

There is a lot of what looks to be ‘good’ advice out there.  So my question is:  How do you know what’s real?

Who Do You Believe?

Which ‘expert’ should you be listening to, reading his/her eBooks, heeding their recommendations?

Lick your finger and stick it in the air so you can see which way the wind is blowing – – – then wait a few hours and do it again because the internet is very fluid and it will change.

My recommendation would be to do your due diligence and then pick someone you feel comfortable with, take everything with a grain of salt, and apply whatever filters you have in you personal ‘bag of tricks’.  Step up take responsibility and get on with it.  This is your business and only you can control it’s direction.

Plan of Action

First of all, find a mentor – someone you trust who would not steer you wrong (like me, for example).  Is your mentor the ‘real McCoy’ or is he/she just blowing smoke?  Do an internet search, I like to use Google myself but other search engines are just about as good.  Find out everything you can about your mentor.  Make sure he or she is worth your time and effort.

Next, is the program being offered for real?  Can you expect help from someone other than your mentor?  Is there training provided – written guides, audios, videos, live onLine seminars and real go-to networking events where you get to meet real live people and interface with them.

Finally, “what’s this going to cost me?”  Is this program going to cost me “an-arm-and-a-leg” or is it “free” or something in between.  Is this a one-time fee or a monthly subscription service?  Again I’m asking “what’s real?”

Many times “free” programs are not worth what you paid for them, and many are not really “free” at all.

Perhaps you should just sign up for the most expensive program you can find, absorb everything you can during their “trial” period (if they offer one), and then before the deadline, resign and ask for a refund.  Good luck with that because even those programs that offer a refund seldom tell you how quickly you’ll see the green come back to you!

Maybe you can convince one of these “gurus” to grant you access for free with the condition that when you start seeing a profit you’ll pay for the program (after all, if their program is that good, they’ll know you’ll be making green within 60 to 90 days, right? so why wouldn’t they offer to do this?).  Good luck with that one, too.

Finally!  Eureka!

I got started with Wealthy Affiliates because I could sign up for FREE to check things out NO COST and, when my time was right, then I could upgrade to further develop my business.  What better plan could you ask for?
