IMers, “Internet marketers” for short, you know them, they promise secrets to easy make money online riches all for a princely sum of $27 or something.
Upon delivery you see details on “getting rich selling ebooks about getting rich selling ebooks”… and!!
Huh wait a minute!
Not that all IMers are like this, but lets be honest.
Isn’t it this that sticks in most “newbies” throats?
I have no bone with ANYONE in particular, I just notice some things that ARE getting talked about in this way, more than usual from my experience, some have no idea I was ever in that “niche” if you like.
It’s nothing new as such, but sheesh it sure looks worse from some angles.
That way of generating cash, short term gains was a successful one for some of them, some have moved onto better things, other niches etc.
Without naming people as there is no need to do that, I gotta say some of them are relentless in what they do.
Some of them brag about their fortunes yet CONTINUE to push a link everywhere they are, go, whatever, for a crappy product at times.
Let me ask…Are YOU greedy?
If you have made so much money online anyway, why are you CHASING it?
Why misuse things for that small benefit you gain in the short term?
Why when you should have built a base of fans big enough to spread your work for you, do you continue to push stuff into our faces?
Why do you continue to try and grab a big market share, shoving your aff links (spamming in many ways) everywhere, including asking others who are also in some way YOUR competition to spread the word about things you mainly benefit from?
How are those “under you” on the chain supposed to grow when those who do things like this who are above them (like you) stifle them?
Don’t talk about “abundance attitude” I KNOW there is enough for everyone, but where do you STOP?
Not talking mainly of ethics, just where do you draw the line?
Have you even thought about it?
The big guys have a great opportunity to do it right in my eyes but many miss the right way, they don’t CARE, they ONLY want MAKE MORE MONEY ONLINE!
Social networking sites are being used badly if you ask me.
This user generated web that is now here more than ever will spread that bad word about the greedy ones fast and far.
Vice versa with the good ones and the generosity.
What price a reputation now?
I think there is going to be a big shake up somewhere regarding all the IMers out there.
Some are good some not, some are greedy, some not… where are YOU?
