I’m quite sure that you have constantly been bombarded with offers from different internet marketing gurus asking you to buy their products or other guru’s products.
The problem is, every product looks good. Even if you have money to buy all of them, you wouldn’t have the time to study them!
The secret, my friend, is to be selective in which guru you listen to.
Let me share with you a little experience of mine:
Some time ago, someone called me on my mobile phone asking if I was interested in making an extra $50,000 in the next three months.
Well, I bothered to answer that call because she was calling from an internet marketing guru’s office. I know that guru and I’ve purchased some high ticket items from him. That’s probably the reason why they have my number in the first place.
So I told her, “Yes, I’m interested.”
She went on to sell me a coaching program from another guru, whom I have not heard before, in a tactful and professional way and frankly, I was impressed.
Before deciding on whether to buy the coaching program, the first thing I did was to Google for the name of this guru and find out how he makes money.
Based on my research, this guru is a national speaker in the self-help industry. He has written many books and been featured in the national TVs. (I don’t know him because I live in Singapore, not US.)
If you remove all the bells and whistles, this guru basically makes money conducting seminars and coaching programs teaching people how to be successful.
I have no intention to become a speaker, nor am I interested to start any coaching program. So whatever experience that this guru is irrelevant to me.
What I’m try to tell you is don’t blindly listen to a guru simply because he is famous. Look behind the scene and find out what he does for living.
If what the guru does is what you envision to do, by all means, listen to everything he says. Or else, that guru is NOT your guru.
Get what I mean?
Let me give you another example.
A few years ago, I got into a membership coaching program by another internet marketing guru, Mark Ling. I invested in his program because he makes millions from Adsense and Clickbank by building little content websites in all kinds of niches that he knows nothing about.
That was what I envisioned myself to be doing and therefore, I got into his program and learnt everything he taught.
Speaking of him, the same membership that I was subscribed to is now free. I highly recommend you to get into the membership because there are tons of videos and tutorials that I used to pay to view.
That’s all for today. Remember, the next time you see an offer from another internet marketing guru, ask yourself, is the way that guy makes money the way you want to make money? If the answer is ‘no’, don’t waste your time on that offer.
