PART THREE

BE SELECTIVE OR BECOME AN INTERNET STATISTIC.


Graham Hamer by Graham Hamer

I'm going to show you three emails I just received today. And I want YOU to make a quick off-the-cuff judgement whether you would join their schemes or not.

Here's the first...

http://www.6-Minutes.com/
-Fred Leite, Marketing Associate


So, you tell me, does it make you want to click his URL and look further?

For me, it says "TRASH", without even looking. There are some huge red flags waving merrily in the breeze, and I don't want to know...

The big scary one is "$5 BILLS PAID DIRECTLY INTO YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT". That says "scam". It says "pyramid scheme" and, for me, it says "KEEP AWAY".

Apart from that, do you really want to get involved in a business that pays you $5? Look for the $50 commissions, not the $5 PayPal scams.

So take a look at the site...

First off, it's cheap. Second it confirms my suspicions that it's a pyramid scheme (no matter how much they try to legalise it by adding rubbish products)

In their favor, they state that they disapprove of spam. This is undoubtedly so they don't lose their own hosting account, but even so it's a small plus point.

You get involved in this one, you're in for more than you bargained!!

Let's assume you've just bought your three 'amazing' marketing packages and now you have to resell them... Where are you going to begin?

If you don't have a mass-mailer, you're stuck!! If you don't have safelists, you're stuck!! If nobody responds to you, you're stuck!! (Safelists give an average return of 1:1,000. For a scam such as this, which almost everybody has seen before, you'd be doing well to get a click-thru of about 1:5,000 ...which means a sell-to of about 1:100,000. Pretty poor odds, I would say!)

Let me tell you - the odds are strongly in favor that you've just thrown away $15. Better put on a blindfold and pick a three-legged horse in the last race at Timbuktu. It will improve your chances a bit!

Here's the second email...

That's right, $15.00 CA$H to you each month, per referral! A HUGE 60% of your membership dues returned to you for sponsoring.

This is a NO BRAINER folks! You NEED this program to be successful online. The tides have shifted and if you don't get onboard you will miss the boat.

http://trafficbuck.cjb.net

Recruit just two new members and you are $5.00 ahead, NOT "even", AHEAD!

It's simple to recruit 10 or more each month and increase your monthly earnings by $150.00, each and every month. Heck, even if you're not a super promoter you can earn money because there is a random referral placement system. Like I said, It's a No Brainer!

Get in NOW and you will be in early before everyone else promotes it. You can be one of the first heavy-hitters in this new concept. Opportunities like this don't come around everyday.

If you are already a heavy-hitter you could make a fast load of cash! Don't wait, ACT NOW!


Do you feel any more comfortable about this one?

For me, it still says "TRASH". Not because it's a scam, but because the "promoter" makes some very basic mistakes...
  • He doesn't wait to say "Hello Internet Colleague" or any such similar welcome. He stamps straight in with steel-capped boots and starts kicking the daylights out of me! - It doesn't work!
     
  • His mathematics are lousy! If I get $15 per referral and that represents 60% of my membership dues, it means my membership is increased for every referral I make! (That isn't what he meant, of course, but it shows that he's not thought about what he's saying. That should worry you!)
     
  • It's a no-brainer (he tells me). Why not let ME be the judge of that. So far, he has written just two sentences (which I have just proved are faulty) and he's telling me it's a no-brainer. Well I'm a bit more selective than that - and you should be, too.
     
  • You NEED this program to be successful online (??). Better tell Marlon Sanders and Terry Dean and Neil Shearing what they're missing! They'll be glad to know that, at last, there's a no-brainer program that will make them successful!
     
  • It's simple to recruit 10 or more each month... BULL! getting 10 people to spend $25 a month to be a member of one of the thousands of anonymous click-for-traffic sites is virtually impossible. Now that's a no-brainer!
     
  • And it keeps getting worse, as this guy just digs himself deeper and deeper into a hole that he can't escape from! "Heavy-hitters" certainly don't need this guy to tell them what to buy. And they didn't become heavy hitters by believing the sort of stupid hype that this email contains!!!
PUT IT IN THE TRASH, where it belongs!

Here's the third email...

Hello,

Hands-Free Automated Home Business!

A proven money-making business, that requires no inventory, no shipping, no employees, no hassles!

Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, your entire business can be on total auto pilot. Your orders are completely processed without you lifting a finger! You simply advertise the profit system and get ready for electrifying surge in your profit!

How it works?

Customers arrive at your customized business website and your order-pulling sales letter convinces them to place an order.

They click on YOUR Order link and an online credit card agency takes their credit card information and processes the order.

Upon credit card approval, the customer is automatically directed to the password protected download center to receive the product.

You will then get an email notification from the credit card agency informing you that "You've got sale!"

The credit card agency sends you out a monthly or twice-monthly check

His Name

Marketing Director


So, you tell me, does it make you want to click his URL and look further?

It did me!

The guy is polite. He gets to the point without any hype and (it turns out) his claims are perfectly legitimate.

Being a bit if a Website Traffic 'expert' I was wary when I saw "...customers arrive at your customized business website..." because I know it doesn't just happen like that. But this guy can be forgiven for not getting involved in that in an email ad!

And sure enough, when I visited the site, I found that it was a reseller for my friend Marcus Yong of www.FastTrackProfit.com, a respected Internet Marketer.

So those were just three of the HUNDREDS of email offers I get each week.

Out of those hundreds of emails, I see maybe ten that are promoting sound, sensible Internet Marketing Programs... ones that, given time and energy, will build to provide respectable incomes or second incomes for the partcipants.

Which means that about 98% of emails I get are pushing worthless schemes that will only put money into the webmasters' pockets. It means that the promoters (you) are wasting more and more time and energy on stuff that is never going to work.

But how do you tell the good, from the bad, from the indifferent?
  1. Look for the obvious lies... "..the next 2 months after that I made a total of $290,000.00. So far, in the past 8 months by re-entering the program, I have made over $710,000.00 and I am playing it again.... Lady, GET REAL!! ... (that was a genuine extract from yet another spam e-mail recieved today)
     
  2. Look for spelling mistakes and poor grammar. Though we are not all blessed with the gift of perfect English, if you expect somebody to trust you and spend money on your 'project', the very least you will do is get your e-mail proof-read.
     
  3. Look for either a program that has been tried and tested, or for a new program presented by a marketer with a good reputation to uphold. New programs from new Marketers are "risky", to say the least.
     
  4. Look for the obvious hype. Though we are all tempted to 'beat the drum' about how good our products are, there's a line over which you do not step ... it's called LYING!
     
  5. And finally... NEVER, NEVER, EVER buy from a spammer! This is a golden rule. Break it at your peril.

    Spam belongs in the trash. Put it there!

    Here's a spam letter that landed in my wife's Inbox as I wrote this article...

    The 40 Year Trap

    Dear
    Do you want to work for 40 years or more to make
    $40,000 a year or less, to retire on 40% of what wasn't
    enough in the first place?
    Imagine owning a profitable home business that you could
    start TODAY without:
    technical know how
    jeopardizing your current career
    any of the headaches of owning a traditional business
    What if all the tools and techniques were provided for you

    instantly , FREE, with simple to follow, step-by-step instructions?

    Why not take that important first step and visit:

    http://webprofits0.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.html


    So here are the facts...

    1. My wife is a doctor and earns over $150,000 a year.
    2. She will retire on 80% of salary.
    3. She will retire in about 15 years.
    4. She has no wish to own a home business - profitable or otherwise.

    This particular spammer has trawled my wife's email address from some old list, and has spent YOUR money, delivering probably a million similar emails in the hope that someone will respond (and some dumb fool probably will!!)

    An guess what? Here's what you are being asked to buy if you click the link...

    • MailFinder to find and harvest the email addresses of the thousands of new entrepreneurs that come to the Web every day!
    • ListManager, to clean, filter and manage the lists you will create with MailFinder
    • Stealth Mailer. Software that allows you to send thousands of messages per hour without clogging up your ISP's server.

    THESE PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY SELLING SPAM! --- IT IS THEIR PRODUCT!!

    Please, of all the lessons you should learn to become a responsible and profitable Internet Marketer - learn these two...

    1. NEVER, NEVER, EVER BUY FROM A SPAMMER.


    2. NEVER, NEVER, EVER SEND SPAM.
And so we return to the theme of chosing what programs you should adopt, and which ones to let drop.

At the end of the day, you should let your common sense be the judge of what is worthwhile and what is not. For heaven's sake, do NOT be tempted by the wild claims of people who are desperate to drag some money out of you.

Stop and think logically about it... if what they claimed was feasible, why are they still flooding the market with dumb e-mails instead of lying on the beach in The Bahamas?

When you are assessing if a program is worthwhile, take a moment to look at the person behind the scheme. Is he or she a recognised Internet "figure"? If you've never heard of them, seek proof of their credentials. If they don't tell you about themselves, send them an email and ask them! If they've nothing to hide, they won't mind.

Check what backup you get from your sponsor for promoting their scheme. Do they offer help on how to promote and sell their products?

Never get involved in a multi-level scheme that doesn't have an end product. There are loads of schemes out there that simply require you to find other fools punters who will waste their money too. What's the product?

DO NOT BE TEMPTED by promises of untold wealth. Stay with programs that have a GENUINE and VALUABLE end product.

And finally, ask yourself this question... "Do you know of ANY Internet Marketer who has become wealthy sponsoring one of the cheap and nasty get-rich-quick schemes?" ... if so, tell me about him or her - because they're lying to you.

Good luck, and good marketing.
