Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Charles asks…

What are my chances of getting a job in the marketing industry after getting my assosiactes degree?

I want to know how easy/hard it is to obtain a career in the marketing/advertising industry.

barry0912 answers:

Right now, in this economy, you would be lucky to get an entry level position in a low level company.

Actually, you would be lucky to get any job!!! And that is no joke!!!

However, you would probably be able to get a position as a telemarketer, but, you really don’t need an associates degree for this job. The fact that you have or will soon get your associates degree does put you in an advantage over those who do not. An employer will tend to give a job to the candidate with the highest level of education, all other factors being equal.

If you are interested in finding out more about “network marketing”, you can find out alot of information online. One nice thing about network marketing is that you can have a successful career with an associates degree, or you can have a successful career with no degree at all. You would have a distinct advantage over the non-degreed marketer, as you have a lot more knowledge at your fingertips. You will most likely have better writing and speaking skills than someone with just a HS diploma, a GED or equivilancy diploma, or no dipolma at all.

The difference between a network marketer and a telemarketer is that you won’t have to annoy people at dinner time! As a matter of fact, you won’t have to annoy anyone at anytime, if you do network marketing right!

Is Network Marketing a Get Rich Quick Scheme??? Definately not, and anyone who tells you so is not being honest with you.
So, if continuing you education is not an option at this time, then send out your resume. If you have any type of experiance, a lot of employers will also take that into consideration.

If you are interested in finding out how to break into the network marketing arena, please check out my website, www.top-network-marketing-companies.org

I am not going to SELL you on my NWM or MLM company, don’t worry about that. What my website is about is helping you to find the “right” network marketing opportunity for “you” and how to develop that opportinity into a successful career. One requirement is access to a computer with high speed internet access. The good news is that most school libraries give you unlimited access at the library!!!

Hope this helps! Good luck in your search! Hope to hear from you!

Helen asks…

What can you do with a degree in graphic design?

What can you do with a degree in graphic design?

barry0912 answers:

All of the above are true. You have a huge range of career opportunities! Website design is HOT, then there is print design (ad firms, magazines, marketing firms, hospitals — yup, they need their annual reports and marketing work designed, post-secondary schools — with the right degree, and I could go on and on . . . ) You need a specialized degree in gaming design (If you don’t have a degree yet, check out SCAD — Savannah College of Art and Design.)

Everything you get in the mail, all the ads and layout you see in magazines and books . . . All the greeting cards you get in the mail . . . All the internet pages . . . They needed to be designed by someone — usually with a graphic design background.

And don’t forget freelance. There are a number of websites (I used Elance.com) that will hook you up with potential clients.

Does it pay well? Depends on your clients and how much experience you have, and how quickly and thoroughly you can get the job done. There are some jobs that I do, and only get paid about $12.00 an hour because it wasn’t as “easy” as I thought it would be. Some jobs I do, I get paid $100.00 per hour! More likely, I average about $25.00 to $45.00 an hour freelance.

I tend to agree with one of the past answerers — you should get another expertise or even a higher degree (Master’s). It’s not only helpful to YOU, it looks great on a resume. Photography, Illustration, etc. Goes well with design. I have my Master’s in Media Studies, which has brought me much success in getting both freelance and full-time work.

Much success to you!! It’s a great field, ever expanding, and you can WORK FROM HOME if you’re lucky and find the right job!

Linda asks…

Is it possible to do network marketing online without having to actually speak to people over the phone?

I love Melaleuca products and would like to join the company as a rep to make money and also because I feel passionate about there products, however I am not keen on network marketing the old fashioned way by prospecting people that aren’t looking for an opportunity. Is there any way the build a sucessful online business by using a website that creates free leads and is fully optimized ( this I don’t know how to do currently, but also really want to learn!) If so how and where would I go from there? I am new to Internet Marketing, but I really want to learn it and market a product that I love. 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!

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.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Paul asks…

any really good internet marketing system where we can see real results.?

i have been member of few network marketing MLM company any real company only on internet and with real result. would be interested to know result people are getting if any.??

barry0912 answers:

I think one of the best would be in the telecommunications industry. It’s a bit different then MLM. It’s primarily network marketing. There is an MLM side to it, if you choose that route. There is many different results depending on the person and how much “real” effort they put into their business. I know a lot of people in this industry that do very well. I also know some who didn’t, primarily because they didn’t follow through with what they were supposed to, so they didn’t succeed in something so simple to do. This industry us also a major funding resource for SOFTIN, MADD, systic fubroses as well as many other non profit organizations. You can have it on line as well as off line. What you make, would depend on what you put into it, as with any business MLM, networking or not. You really need to hook up with someone who’s been in the industry for several years and knows all the ins and outs to have it be a success. Follow someone’s guide who knows what they’re doing.
I know someone who can give you the information on this particular industry, if you chose to do it, she can help you out.
Her name is Tiffany, she’s a mother of four and a co founder for a non profit organization. Her and her husband are very successful business people in this industry. She’d be happy to help you out. I suggest you look into something where there is both sides of it. Not just one. Broaden the opportunity.
She also created a blog on her yahoo page on Home based Business opportunities for on line and offline businesses. There are several different ones in different industries to take a look at and see which ones you think you’d be interested in. Also a lot of information that you should read about on home based businesses, blogs, reports, scams and the BBB, network marketing as well as MLM’s. It’s not too long, just some issues that people need to know in regards to businesses. Some things are eye openers. I think people should educate themselves on this. So many people are misinformed.
