Are You Being Ripped Off?
By: John Elder
Good morning! Before we get started I've been asked to mention that Yearly Membership in the National Marketing Council
is about to jump from $49.95 to $499 tomorrow...due to the overwhelming interest, we've had to jack the price up. Why? Because the purpose is to individually help members succeed online.
Too many members makes it harder to give individual attention...so to slow things down, we're drastically increasing the price.
This is worth looking into...you get a ton of software tools...books...etc with membership...plus all the hands on help. Today is the last day you can
get in so cheaply. Check it out
In Last Week's Issue I talked to you
about a foolproof marketing system that you can use to sell just about anything. This week I want to talk to you about something
you may have seen recently and thought about doing.
Hardly a week goes by without someone emailing me and asking about this marketing method. You may have
seen it advertised and wondered if you should do it yourself.
I'm talking about those places that promise to send X amount of "clicks" to your web site for a fee.
It may be ten thousand clicks...it may be a hundred thousand clicks...it may be more. The price for this "service"
ranges from $30 bucks to thousands of dollars.. I've known people to pay upwards of five thousand dollars for this service.
It seems to make sense doesn't it? You're only paying for performance, right? Wrong.
I highly recommend you stay away from services like this. Are these places a scam? Not really...they do deliver
what they promise. But does a service like this have any value to you? Will it help you sell more products? The
answer is no.
In this game, it's all about "targeting". The secret to making m'oney online is to sell targeted products to targeted
people. Someone who loves cats is not the least bit interested in buying dog vitamins. If you're selling cat products,
you need to target cat lovers.
The internet makes this so much easier than in the old days. You can quickly, easily, and often cheaply find targeted
These places that offer to send thousands of "clicks" or visitors to your site, aren't sending "targeted visitors" to your
site. They're just sending a hodgepodge of people, often directed to your site against their will via pop up's, who
most likely have no interest in what your selling.
Don't waste your money on services like this. Instead put your money into targeted ezine ads or pay per clicks at
Google or Overture (where they let you target specific visitors).
That's all for this week. See you next Monday!
