Sometimes it seems like everyone is an internet marketer these days.
You don’t need to go far online to find someone posting images of themselves on their private yachts, telling you that you too could be “earning money while you sleep” if you just listen to their long, rambling video.
The problem of course, is that these people never actually offer any answers because they actually want you to pay for their $5,000 training course.
So maybe you head off to do a bit of your own research.
Chances are you’ll have quickly discovered that this is an extremely complex, dense, and impenetrable subject matter for someone who is new to the world of marketing.
Just the acronyms alone are enough to scare people off! SEO, PPC, CPC, CPA, CTR, SMO… and no I didn’t make any of those up!
It’s enough to make you wonder if internet marketing is just a big scam – whether anyone is really earning money online from selling digital products or affiliate deals.
And this is where the disheartened feelings kick in.
Because of course, all of us love the idea of being able to work from home with the freedom to set our own hours.
In fact, I don’t think I’m being hyperbolic when I say that life shouldn’t be like this.
Should you really be spending the majority of your youth working for someone else?
Sitting in a dark room for 8 hours a day?
Struggling to make ends meet?
