There is a lot of hype out there, especially in many Internet Marketing circles. Lots of people selling magic systems and special formula’s to help you get rich quick or at the very least make money online. But how can you tell the good products from the bad hyped up products. Today’s post is about Internet Marketing products that suck and how to separate the creme from the crap.
Most people who begin to start any kind of business online or try to setup any website will no doubt find themselves receiving emails promising the world. From free reports to now free training video’s, everyone wants to get to know you and everyone seems to be able to help you. All you have to do is simply fill in your name and email and salvation can be yours.
The majority of the Internet Marketing products being pandered about on the web are simply crap. Most are just re-hashed reports transcribed from someone else’s tele-seminar in order to get you on their email list.
Now don’t get me wrong – there isn’t anything wrong with trading an email for some free information. I do it all the time and it helps me get to know the author of the report and possibly develop a friendship. What bothers me is when this relationship escalates to a sale of an email course, eBook, video course, access to a membership forum or whatever… and the product is just junk.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, don’t just take it and loose your money. Contact the author and GET A REFUND! If the product sucks, then don’t be afraid to fire up an email and ask for your money back. 98% of the information products available online come with a 30-60 day money back, iron clad, no questions asked, even if its 3:00 am in the morning guarantee. If that’s the case then exercise your right to get your money back.
One way to make sure you get good useful information is to simply visit the author’s blog, leave comments and start a conversation that way. Many blog owners will end a blog post asking if anyone has questions. And many blogs will link back to your website just for helping add to the conversation. This is a great way to get to know more experienced marketers and help your own website ranking at the same time.
Another way is to visit some Internet Marketing forums. There are many great forums with a ton of information and advice from their members. If you have a question about a particular product simply post a question in one of these forums. There are always friendly people that are more than willing to help.
Here is a list of some really good and free Internet Marketing Forums:
