As a simple example of being misleading is this site www.easysimplemoneymaker.com. On it, it says that anyone can "build a solid, legitimate income online" and "build and mail to a responsive opt-in list of your very own without having to sign up for Aweber, Get response or any autoresponder service" and "Sign up for free". Once you have signed up, it mentiones 3 steps namely 1. to paste and copy their adds to your website, blog, etc., then 2. to login daily to track how many people have subscribed to your list and 3. to email your list with anything you want to promote. And then after you have done the first two steps, guess what? You want to do step 3 and it says that this feature is not available to free members, but in the meantime you have advertised this site all over the place! Now, of course you know that in order to get your money back, you need to promote this site first and foremost, before you can promote anything else to make real money!
There are many other schemes that promote themselves (rarely any real products or services) by means of videos. The one that really gets me cracked up are those where some person feels compelled to read to you what you are seeing in the video! Now why would they think that illiterate people could be their targets?
Then it comes to the hype! One example is www.paydayautomation.com. Apart from the video being rather lengthy and never really coming to the point, it gives you the impression that the scheme is free and at the end you get to sign up and pay. Apart from that, the whole video lets you know how you can get rich instantly, but interestingly enough, the disclaimer at the bottom clearly states "Testimonials are not typical of most results" and "Some individuals purchasing the program may make little or NO MONEY AT ALL. These claims are not a guarantee of your income" and "No person or company can guarantee profits or freedom from loss. Any and all use of this website certifies you are agreeing to our Earnings and Income Disclaimers."
Does that say it all, or what? To be fair, it does mention that "Individual results will vary greatly and in accordance to your input, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions" something I have always stated myself, but then why bother buying it? Apart from the "super-secret formula software" you are supposed to get and you can only find out if it actually works after you buy it. Yes, it does come with a money-back guarantee, but who is guaranteeing here? How can anyone be sure the guarantee is worth anything, unless you buy it through ClickBank? And if the system is indeed so great, why bother with a guarantee at all? For me these are "red flags" and I wouldn't touch this!
What about those that claim you can make money, or even get rich beyond your wildest dreams and in your sleep, on Autopilot? Well, partly it is possible, but certainly not in your sleep. When you have achieved a reasonable downline of subscribers or affiliates, yes you can benefit from their subscribers or affiliates, but certainly not in your sleep! You need to take care of them and support them any way you can.
I mention these two merely as examples of what to look out for. I am not alone when I state that anyone who tells you that you that you can make money at the push of a button, etc. is taking you for a ride! Plain and simple!
Coming back to input, determination, hard work and ability to follow instructions and if you want to be an affiliate marketer with the chance to build a downline of subscribers/affiliates then you need to check this out.
This program sells real products and services which people/consumers need all the time and buy online all the time. But when they buy it from you, or even just get a free service, like a quotation, through your personalized website, you get paid. And it sells itself to others you promote (you still need to do the marketing), with all the necessary training and assistance you need and not least the support from your sponsor! And it is absolutely free! It will never cost you anything at all, except for your input, determination, hard work and the ability to follow instructions (training)! Why anyone would sign up for anything else and actually pay for it, is beyond my comprehension!
Of course, if you have your own product or service you want to promote on the Internet, then I can also help you free of charge. Just go to www.internetsadvisor.weebly.com and find out how.
