Common Internet Marketing Mistake Can Devastate Your Business

One of the most interesting sales people I ever talked to was this network marketing and direct sales master named Glenn Turner.

Not necessarily because he gave a lot of good advice on selling, ethics and dealing with people (he is a true pro at these things), but because one thing he said is probably going to be saving me, my family and my Internet marketing business from putting up with a lot of grief later on down the line.

In fact, this secret he told me is something I believe every single Internet marketer should take to heart and consider from here on out.

And that is, not messing around when it comes to refunding people’s money.

Even if you know you’re in the right and they didn’t follow their end of the agreement, and even if you know you are following the law to the letter.

Why?

Because you simply never know who you’re dealing with.

Especially if you are selling to people on the Internet.

For example, Glenn told me about how one of his business opportunity companies he had back in 1967 was accused of being a “lottery” and shut down.

Now, Glenn was doing everything by the book and legally he had everything in line.

But what happened was a couple of people had gotten into his business, and it didn’t work for them, and they wanted their money back, even though they didn’t qualify for a refund and Glenn had done nothing wrong.

And so, doing what most people would do, he didn’t give it back to them.

Only problem was, these two guys were both Attorney Generals and so it wasn’t hard for them to use their influence and power to have Glenn shut down.

The point of the story?

You never know who you’re selling to.

The obnoxious guy with the “hotmail” email address and phony name who is demanding his money back could be connected in ways that can have a very negative impact on you, your business and your life.

And so I now almost always give refunds. Even when I know I’m right.

Yes, there are exceptions to this (I’m not a pushover by any means), but for the most part, I believe in giving fast and immediate refunds.

Not only does it build a good image for you as a trusted, honest person, but it can save you a lot of grief later on if someone really wants to take their anger out on you by trying to sue you or report you to some “alphabet” federal regulatory agency.

Why People Repeatedly Buy Too Many Useless Internet Marketing Programs

If you’re trying to start an internet business, I’m sure you’ve come across your fair share of internet marketing programs. You’ve probably read the free ones, the paid ones, and even the ones that cost over $500. So tell me, what have you learned from all of this reading? What small ounce of production have you achieved from all of the reading about “internet marketing” that you’ve done?

Listen, I’m going to tell you the problem most people run into when they start buying these internet marketing programs. The problem is that they don’t do any implementation. There are so many internet marketing business programs out there that most people believe that there is some “hidden secret” revealed in one of them that will get them rich.

Even if you browse on YouTube you will see the words “secrets” thrown around like there’s no tomorrow. But after all your reading and watching, what “secret” have you learned? Why haven’t you made millions yet? If you have the so-called “secret”, why are you reading my words right now? This is something that you have to take a step back and ask yourself before you end up in the hole financially.

Just because an internet marketing program with CD’s and DVD’s and bonuses and website packages are included doesn’t mean that it’s the Holy Grail of marketing. Stop being deluded and think for a second. If you’re on your 8th course and you STILL don’t know how to generate leads into your autoresponder email account… there’s a problem – and it’s a problem that you need to fix fast.

Most of the people selling you these programs know exactly what they’re doing. They know that you more than likely won’t take action, so they create a large program with 300-page books, bonus reports, multiple CD’s and DVD’s, membership site access, and a ton of other stuff all designed to make you inert. They give you this stuff because they know that there is so much information you will have to go through – and at the end of it all… you won’t know where to begin.

So in short, they delude you into thinking that their basic online marketing program is the Holy Grail of all courses, sucker you into paying $500 for it, and then pitch you again for another product for $1000 this time – that you will more than likely buy also because it contains the “ultimate” HIDDEN SECRET. Don’t be deluded and don’t be foolish. These marketers know what they are doing, but do you?

So ask yourself, why are you repeatedly buying these useless internet marketing programs? It doesn’t make any sense does it? What kind of monetary proof can you pull out and look at that justifies you spending this kind of money on books, CD’s, eBooks, and DVD’s? This is a serious question, because if you don’t have a good answer for it, more than likely you will continue this pattern of constantly wasting money on courses.

Do any of these internet marketing programs include 1-on-1 help or support from the product creator? Is this person at least concerned about you actually making money from your own internet business? Have you tried to contact them and have they reached out back to you? If the answer to all of these questions are “No”, then you should obviously see that they don’t care about you at all. They just care about their bottom line.

If you want to stop the process of buying products and continuing to buy products that don’t lead you anywhere, then you need to make a change. Internet marketing can be simple, but it’s up to you to put in the implementation and work that’s required to make your dreams come true. Stop buying these internet marketing programs and find someone who really cares about your success, and really cares about your business.

Also, put in the work necessary to make your business profitable. Stop buying programs and develop a marketing plan that’s solid and makes sense. If you’ve already bought countless internet marketing programs and you STILL don’t know where to start, then there’s a problem.

If you still don’t know how to do search engine marketing, video marketing, article syndication, or even how to write a simple blog post… then there’s a problem. You don’t need a 300 page book or 8 DVD’s to learn how to write a simple blog post. And you certainly don’t need this much material to learn how to get off your butt and start taking action.

Stop wasting time buying and learning and start putting what you’ve learned into action. This is the best thing that you can do for yourself – instead of purchasing more internet marketing programs that will have your eyes hurting from all the reading that you will have to do.

Internet marketing can be easy or hard – it all depends on you. Do you want to continue to have your dreams deflated from your friends and family? Do you want to continue to hear people say “They’re scamming you”? Do you want to continue to wake up early in the morning to a job that could care less about you? If you don’t, then stop buying these useless internet marketing programs and do something useful today to make your business goals become reality.

It’s up to you, and only you can make it happen. A product creator won’t take you by the hand and lead you to success. They’re too busy fulfilling orders to other people like you… people who think that they’re finally going to get lottery rich within the next 30 days using somebody’s internet marketing program.
