Robert asks…

How does Internet marketing differ from traditional marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Contrary to popular belief, internet marketing does not differ too much from traditional marketing.

The internet affords us a faster and more convenient way to reach our target audience. It also expands our target audience to include those globally, where traditional marketing would be focussed more on local targets. Those points would make up the main differences.

One of the very exciting things about internet marketing is that it opens the floodgates for the everyday man or woman in the street to participate in an arena where they can own their own business, for minimal outlay and small ongoing costs.

When you cut through all the hype and clutter online, its very easy to see that the traditional marketing systems, focuses and requirements are still there. Its just that many enterprising folks have found a way to make things easier and faster, via the internet.

Lizzie asks…

How do you find facebook as a marketing channel?

There are various ways to market your product online and social marketing is just one of those. In comparison with other strategies such as article marketing how heavy do you use facebook as one of your strategies to market a product?

barry0912 answers:

Facebook can be a lucrative internet marketing strategy if used effectively. You can’t just use one strategy though, and you have to know that Facebook is more of a branding opportunity, and most successful businesses will not use it to sell products directly, but indirectly (if that makes sense).

Why?

Because building a successful online business isn’t about using one channel, it’s about using multiple internet marketing strategies together. Lately there is so much hype about using Facebook to market products online. This is completely wrong. People are on Facebook to connect with people, not businesses.

The way people use the internet is much different than old school brick and mortar business. It’s not selling to users, it’s users having the option to make there own decisions…just a click away.

You need to look at marketing on Facebook as permission based and 99.99% of people will not buy products or services if they “like” your business, or friend request you. Top internet marketers will agree that successful online business is not about getting, it’s about giving. That principle even holds more true to Facebook marketing. This is a direct channel to provide value to potential customers, free reports, thoughtful information, humorous tidbits of information sometimes seemingly unrelated to your business.

If potential customers see you as not selling, there more likely to look into what you do, consequently resulting in more traffic and more business.

If you have any questions about that let me know.

Sincerely,

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Sharon asks…

What do you think about job postings for surveys and job opportunities online?

Hey There-
I was just doing a search online for different jobs in a few different cities. I am searching Yahoo Jobs right now but also when searching Monster or Career Builder I see Job postings for Online Surveys and online Job opportunities. I know they must be somewhat legitimate because it costs $350 just for one month of posting a job on Yahoo for Kansas City.

So if anyone has ever tried surveys or online jobs that promise making money online. Let me know how you did or what you think?

Mary asks…

How do I start a business if I can’t count on the job market to provide a living for me and my family?

I have some good business ideas, but my credit is shot, because my child had heart surgy and we had to file for bankruptcy. I can’t get a loan and trying to get a job because my credit is bad no one will hire me and I am also seven months along. I need to find some way of making a living and my only option is to be in business for myself. How do I start a bussiness with very little capital to no capital. I can’t rely on my husband. He is skilled, but has no people skills. Our unemployment is running out and I don’t have much time to think of options on my own. How can I make a business work?

barry0912 answers:

In response to your question . . .

I certainly understand your predictament. I will tell you where the real money is over the Internet. However, this will be a slow process to learn but a low investment. It takes passion, dedication, and it is definately real. Just read the following:

Before you do anything, you need to learn Internet marketing. I highly suggest that you don’t invest in anything just yet. You need to research the Internet by joining work at home forums–its free! Do a search on the Internet and look up Work at Home Forum, Home Business Forum, Internet Marketing Forum and Affiliate Program Forum. Also look up the keyword SCAM on the Internet and read the stories. Understand the Internet has a wealth of information so research Internet Marketing. The Internet is a universal marketplace for buying and selling products/services.
In addition, read more about Yahoo!, MSN, Google and eBay’s buying/selling/affiliate programs.

The number one income opportunity isn’t data entry, typing, writing ads, Internet jobs, get-rich-quick schemes, etc. These are where most scams occur–people are being misled. So keep away from them Any website filled with money hype such as Make $100s … $1000s and $10000 or more per day/week/month is full of crap–stay away. And pursue any marketing opportunities right now, unless you are an experienced marketer. Advertising is tricky and has to be learn appropriately. If you take your time and research you will discover one absolute great opportunity–Affiliate Programs. But you need to learn Internet marketing. Don’t be foolish and try to learn this on your own. Its leads to costly mistakes and it take too much of your time. This is where most people failed, get discourage because they prefer the get-rich-quick scheme to making money.

I suggest you start by researching a particular site. There will be a free newsletter membership for you to join. You need to sign up to it and download the free ebooks on Internet marketing. This will give you more of an idea what Internet marketing is about, and you can decide if this is really for you. If you really want to learn a system, which is highly suggested in any endeavor, you can pay for the actual course. The price is low and is a one time fee but you will learn, practice, receive assignments and work with 14 money-making websites.

If you would like to know more, contact me at pbsumpter@yahoo.com

PS – I am not trying to sell you anything, just point you and others in the right direction, so that people don’t get scammed and misled by all the hype. If you respond to me, be sure to refer to Internet marketing.

Take Care and Good Luck!

I haven’t signed up with Melaleuca yet as I am looking for a rep who currently markets the product this way and is sucessful at it. I would like a mentor that can guide me through this and help me realize my dream of financial freedom. There are so many scammers out there, I just want to learn for myself a duplicatible system that I can use and pass down to the people that I may introduce.
Can only legit people respond, I am not interested in any remarks, I am looking for a genuine answer!

barry0912 answers:

Hi,

Continue to use Melaleuca products if you like them, but be forewarned here: http://www.tto.bcs.uwa.edu.au/TTO_home/faq

I’m glad you have not signed up yet. You will not find financial freedom in Network Marketing. Believe me – been there, done that.

Wow! I’m glad you asked about MLM, aka Network Marketing.

Freakanomics is right – network marketing is a hoax. Get the book:. Freakonomics [Revised and Expanded]: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (Hardcover) by Steven D. Levitt

Check out this book at your local library.How to Take Advantage of the People Who Are Trying to Take Advantage of You: 50 Ways to Capitalize on the System (Paperback)
by Joseph SB Morse

Be informed. Practice due diligence. Demand proof. Proof that can be verified. Bank statements, tax returns, etc.

Get this book at your local libary or Amazon: (False Profits: Seeking Financial and Spiritual Deliverance in Multi-Level Marketing and Pyramid Schemes (Paperback)
by Robert L. Fitzpatrick .

Only the most virulent, ruthless, aggressive, con artists are successful at Network Marketing. You have to be willing to screw a lot of people into thinking you have a plan for financial Nirvana and they will talk a lot about altruism and spirituality and how working an ordinary job is a dead end They call it Just Over Broke (JOB). In reality, you will go broke buying worthless MLM products at sky-high prices.

It’s like a chain letter, a pyramid, a Ponzi scheme. Don’t believe people when they say it isn’t. They lie through their teeth. MLM is a snake-pit of liars and those that aren’t lying are hopelessly misinformed.

Read this before you waste any money on Network Marketing: (http://skepdic.com/mlm.html).

You will hear a lot of arguments that make network marketing sound like the Holy Grail of home based “businesses”. Like comparing apples to computer chips. You will always hear some very convincing arguments that it is legitimate – every one is a con and illustrates how creative con artists are.

The are very CON-vincing – that’s convincing with a capital C for calamnity, a big O for obnoxious, and N for nauseous. There are no nuggets in this scam. See: (http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/mlm.html).

Here are the 10 biggest lies of network marketing (http://www.mlmwatch.org/01General/10lies.html); read the truth and steer clear of this world-wide hoax.

MLM is the biggest scam in the world and it is going global with companies like Tiens.

They will tell you that all you need is fresh leads from a good mailing list and people will sign up faster than a NASCAR race car.

Are you kidding me? Fresh MLM leads! Don’t fall for that.

Get real.

Remember, There’s a sucker born every minute…and two to take ’em. Burn that into your brain.

If their leads are so good, where is their money-back guarantee? Leadbakery is just one example of a list seller and they are even worse than the MLM companies.

Listen! There has never been a successful course or book on MLM success – all boil down to this:

talk to lots of people with questions like “If I could show you a way to make lots of money quick, would you be interested?” or “If I could show you a sure-fire way to build a financial fortress that would protect you forever, would you be iinterested?” or “Social Security is not secure. Build a MLM company and retire rich”.

That’s the first warning sign that something is rotten in Denmark.

Yes, some will sign up, but unless you are a “heavy hitter” and use illegal methods to trap people into becoming distributors, honest people cannot succeed at this.

Do you know why these courses never work? None of them work because the concept is a con – it’s the confidence man’s dream, jam packed with hype and hyposcrisy.

The only people that will be making money are the list brokers selling the mailing list – and the course writers and seminar creators. If it was such a good deal, why wouldn’t they join a MLM company? The mailing list would be free to them. You don’t see them giving up a lucrative mailing list business to get into something that doesn’t work. They are smart. They get it. And expensive training courses – what a joke. They offer courses that will never work for the gullible and naive – the GRQ crowd.

And I always wondered why none of the people who worked the administrative side of the “business” were not distributors if it was such a great deal. They knew a job was better than the smoke and mirrors, pie in the sky hype used to sell MLM. They knew that only the heavy hitters made any real money.

MLM is the world’s biggest scam. I have tried it a couple of times, the last being Herbalife. It has now moved into the Internet to trap people into believing that they can Get Rich Quick. It is going global.

The only way to make big money is to sell distributorships for thousands of dollars or sell seminar tapes and books.

I once went to a seminar given by Herbalife. The president came to speak. We thought we would learn the secret from the horses mouth on how to get the fiasco to work. We couldn’t believe how shallow his advice was. It boiled down to “talk to a lot of people”. That was his “secret”..

If you do the math, and you are able to sign up lots of people, which is doubtful, you soon run out of people. You get 2, then those 2 get 2, etc. It the old binary progression. Do it 10 times and you are in the thousands. With every progression, the number doubles. 2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024, 2024,4048,9096. The problem is those people in the beginning of the progression opt-out and gobble up the progression faster than Pac-Man. This is known as the “Drop Out Rate”.

So what happens when thousands of people are doing this and with the internet it could be millions. You soon run out of people to talk to. And most people are smart enough to know it’s a scam so right away you lose a huge part of potential prospects.

Think about it.

In fact, finally, the numbers will exceed the entire world’s population. It is a total dream world, a fantasy, completely out of touch with reality. It always looks good on paper, but none of the “heavy hitters” want to talk about drop-out rates.

Hey! What looks good in a spreadsheet, doesn’t translate to reality.

The fact is that only the people who set up the program make money. The next level is all those scam artists that sell and give seminars on how to succeed in MLM. None of the schemes work because the concept is fatally flawed.

Why would anyone with a brain pay $30 for an herbal shampoo that they can buy at the local supermarket for $1. The same with pomegranate juice and Noni joice and all the other miracle juices, algae, and other strange things, even flower pollen.

Are you kidding me?

Get real.

Next, you will read all the anecdotal claims that the product will cure cancer and all sorts of other maladies. This is just another form of fraud. Where are the scientific double and triple blind studies? There ain’t any. Sorry.

Listen! Ask about the drop-out rate. Yes, the drop out rate.

Over 99% of the people who sign up will drop out after a few months or less. So even if you sign up a few people, they will be gone in months, if not weeks, when they find out how many people they have to talk to for just one distributor.

And your friends, co-workers, and relatives will not like you badgering them to join and will avoid you at all costs.

And most of the people who sign up are down-and-out desperate, who can ill afford to waste their money and who may be liable to criminal prosecution for promoting unregistered securities. And that’s just in the USA. Foreign companies like Tiens leave you no recourse to any real legal remedies or enforcement.

Most of these programs die eventually leaving the suckers who signed up holding the bag. I had them die on me and not knowing any better, signed up for the latest MLM scam. After several attempts, I finally came to realize that it was all just a scam – some people became almost like religious zealots when they talked about their program that was going to make everyone rich and quick too. I lost a good friend when he believed my wild claims, put down $3,000 and lost it all.

The “industry” is full of disingenuous people whose mantra is “Fake it ’til you make it”. Doesn’t work. More fraud. They will give you testimonials of people who have made money, but they are liars and what they say cannot be proven. If it’s so great why is there so much hype?

Here is a trick your upline will employ to get reluctant prospects to sign up. They will tell Ms. Reluctant that they will put some people under her and they take Mr. Hopeful who has already become a distributor and paid the fee and stick him under Ms. Reluctant which forces Ms. Reluctant to either buy in or lose the distributor. This is what happened to me in Herbalife. I was Mr. Hopeful. I thought I was signing up under a successful guy at the top known as a “heavy hitter”, but I soon found out I had been scammed. Without telling me, he put me under Ms. Reluctant to force Ms. Reluctant to become a distributor. I did not like my new sponsor and after spending thousands on mailings, I finally dropped out. This is known as “stacking” and is supposedly illegal but it happens all the time.

Listen! My upline in Herbalife made more money selling a sales pamphlet than they did working their MLM business. We mailed out thousands of these pamphlets that we bought from our sponsor for a dime and he probably had them printed for a penny or less. He sold so many of them he had to set up a warehouse to hold and ship them.

Now, it’s all done on the Internet via e-mail. But instead of mailing booklets, you get a Web site and collect e-mail addresses. But a fraud is still a fraud no matter what the media is that promotes it.

This was right before the Internet became popular and I was buying mailing lists through mailing list brokers and mailing thousands of booklets with not much success. I was lucky if 1% of 1% signed up as distributors. And they dropped out faster than I could add new ones.. Pretty soon, you run out of quality people to mail to. The internet makes this even worse, but they have to be more careful, but the spam continues to explode.

Check out this Web site: http://www.vandruff.com/mlm_faq.html… – for more facts, not hype about MLM and what a world-wide fraud it is.

I will probably get lots of MLMers who will villify me for trashing MLM, but I’ve been there and done it and I know first hand what a fraudulent scam it is that can destroy your life, drain you wallet and ruin your friendships.

P.S. Remember, there are no get rich quick schemes that work. If there were, the entire world would be rich in an instant, or as they say, a New York minute. I used to be gullible and naive and fell for some of them – no more. Be a sceptic. Be a doubting Thomas. Why are there thousands of GRQ schemes, because they work! Thousands of Gullible people believe that there is such a thing as GRQ and con artists take advantage of that. Demand proof, not hype.

P.P.S. Jeekers! You gotta remember – if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

P.P.P.S. Find some other way to make money. Have you tried e-bay? Get this book – How to Buy, Sell & Profit on eBay by Adam Ginsberg. Get this one too – Don’t Get Burned on eBay by Shauna Wright. It cost nothing to sign up and find out about it. There are lots of tutorials where you can learn from the experts and most of it is free. Try getting free tutorials and expert advice from the so-called MLM gurus – free stuff would ruin their con.

With an interest list like that, it seems you would like any job dealing with computer hardware, like say for IBM, or any network analysis company. And maybe work with web design on the side for friends and family things if they ever need it.

It sounds like you tried to make money online and it didn’t work for you. Don’t let that stop you from succeeding in things. There are plenty of opportunities out there that you can succeed in. With the proper teaching, support and help anyone can succeed in business if they really want it.
I created a blog on my yahoo page on home based business opportunities. There are over half a dozen different opportunities from different industries. People that I know that do really well in theres and help others that are in the same industry. It also has a lot of information about the truth with scams, BBB and what you need to do to succeed in your home based business. Things to look for when collaborating with a company to see if it’s legit. Time factors etc. You also need to talk to someone who is involved in the industry and not just try and do it on your own. You should be able to have help.
