2009, Year of the newbie

Been itching to get this off my chest.

I don't really care for "labels" like "newbies" or "gurus" and it is meaningless to me, saying that, the "label" is just the common form of the communicational understanding, so in that sense...I'll use them here.

For good reason, with a foot in IM, a foot in blogging, a foot in social (twitter, facebook, forums, feed sharing, etc) sites, I hope to have a leg or two, at least, to stand on... :o)

I am certainly no "newbie"...I'm no expert either just to be clear. :-D

That's the thing, I don't claim to be anything other than me, I have just done what I have done, learnt what I have learnt, and continue to do these things daily. I do have the benefit of experience and the fact I have gone through that learning curve which is in some way a good enough reason to write this.

If anything due to the time online being like dog years it could save you aload of hassle, wasted time and money while being led down the wrong "slicked out path" of some "guru" or scammer.

There ain't no magic pill that's for sure!

Did I look??

Of course, some will say yes, just by saying what most newbies do at some point, "how can I make money from that," nodding and pointing to your pc. ;o)

In 2009 there will be a LOT of people doing just that!

Is it possible then? Yes...but overnight? NO, not for a "newbie."

What is possible is to start building that chain of action that can lead to "overnight riches"....note I never said success, success is purely subjective, to make money online is not success..

In reality I'd rather you dropped the whole notion if you have any, of it is "easy" which is what the "gurus" would have you believe.

This holiday season has been a little eye opener for me, it seems to me most of the "gurus" are either, liars who getting caught out, "dream" salesmen who don't care, too greedy for their own good, or just plain insulting....possibly they are a mix of all.

A few are just "one hit wonders" who are now realising they have nothing left to offer, so rehash their (often outdated) crap and sell for unusually high prices.

A few even peddled their crap on Christmas day!

If they were as rich as they have said so often over the last few years why are they so desperate to drain your wallet/purse of the one thing you need more than them, money?

They promise you will make more money, yet take that very thing off you without a care in the world.
They shouldn't need it like most of those who will inevitably seek a few extra pounds, dollars in these belt tightening, unsure times.

They think they have the trust they all too often say it's so important to build up! They will even preach this very thing to those newbies they lure. ;o)

I know...It's ok, I'm not going anywhere, I'll wait for you get off the floor from your laughing fit.

A joke is it not! ;o)

They are so "predictable" these greedy "fakers" it is sad.

Yet they are after your money, they will try and entice the newbies yet to appear in the fishing bowl that is Internet marketing, making money online niche, with promises of "push button, cash in" ease of riches.

Forget about them!

Do this....use your common sense at all times. ;o)

Here is my biggest tip for anyone online.

Treat the Internet how you would "real" life.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
You would laugh at this stuff offline...much like you do with "junk mail."

You know this, we all know this...so why do some get so burned so easy, so fast?

Same reason people but lotto tickets maybe?

They want the easy way, the dream, all at once.

It pushes all the right buttons. ;o)

Do yourself a big favour and don't get "lured in" by the wrong people.

Don't you think that's sensible? :o)

"Sly marketers = stupid people"

Need I really say more?

Funny thing IM and the marketers involved in that circle, some are simply to sly to be anything but stupid and insulting, the only care they have is to make money online whatever it entails.
Honestly the drivel and crap peddled is seriously getting crazy.

Emails with NOTHING of content and a link to the "next big thing" shoved in your face, and yet these are the people who I DID trust to deliver once and they have gone the way of everyone else who screws it all up.

Sad shite really, I even noticed a so called "guru" post some perfectly common sense fisherman to restaurant owners work ladder!

Then others say they were a genius. Sheesh!!

You know, it ain't hard to find that post if you thought about it, he is one of those who has pushed so hard on crap over the us he has to post a blurb saying how nothing is for sale or in planning to launch on this post... lol!

Says it all!

"Wow, what a let down"

So just three post ago I explained my situation and then the next post asked if you could help me help myself

I had ONE response, which I was greatful for them doing...I appreciated it alot....but from the amount of people who read it it was a bad % of action.

Seems the people who really make money online are the IMers who sell crap to other IMers, via HYPE!

Well, it has certainly got me thinking and the fact I spoke to a few REAL friends offline aboiut things, friends who I respect and listen to, these friends are friends who know little about online stuff, but know ME well... I am "way too nice" online...is the advice they say.

They feel I should be more like I can be offline, which is somewhat a strange thing because they say I am a little "nice" offline too in some ways but I also have a streak of hardness in my honesty, and these friends also say they KNOW if they had an issue they could come to me knowing I won't sugarcoat things...if someone else has bothered them or hurt them they know I would certainly "say something" or help in some way.

"You need to just DO what you feel will work for you online but show more of that hard honesty streak online too.".

This really got me thinking and I have to say...they are right.

Some of you disapointed me.

Alot of others online have angerd me.

Ah well... lessons learnt.

To many want what they can't have...instant results, instant riches, yet IMers sell bullshit that hypes this very "want" up.

Sad, but hey IF thats what works... should I do it?

You tell me.

Interestingly yesterday was a great day, saw ALOT of people here on the sea wall during the battle of the bands gig, and so many said, "how do you do this, that, do people really make money online?"

So I relaise I DO know enough and more than most about this lark, and I tell you the ones making the most are the snake oil sellers, if you don't think so... why not?

Who makes the money if not these IMers who are mainly fakers?

Ok, if I have to do something to stay online should I sell what I do know?

I would rather just GIVE it all away on this blog and let others decide the true worth...but it won't work fast enough or well enough, and most are just to plain happy to take!

This anger and disapointment is going to drive me more now, but you probably won't see it as I will not be online much longer, so you also won't get what I GIVE freely.

Stuck in no mans land and it's getting bigger and lonelier all the time!

Any thoughts?

"Spammer Moya giving email tips?"

I have posted about this unethical marketer Cody Moya before on here and that was due to finding NO way to unsubscribe from his email BLASTING campaigns, his unsubscribe link NEVER worked, it took a public bashing in a forum to get him to manually remove me from his list.

So I had to laugh when someone showed me a link and I saw this idiot post about "email laws (important)" on his site.

Geeeesh what a hypocrite!

I mean seriously who the hell is HE to give advice he don't even follow...even if it IS the law!

Irony, as I have said many a time is the best humour you can find!

Careful you don't wet yaself laughing now won't ya. ;o)

"I was right about Warriors"

Thanks to the support alot of you have given me over the last few days....especially you warriors who SEE what I was talking about and admit I was right about it.

These people naturally fear posting anything in public because they fear being deleted from the forum.

Well what do you know...Allen started a thread where he lied and USED me as an example, but at least it shows I DID hit a raw nerve, else that thread wouldn't have started.

He claimed a female warrior ask him that question which I do NOT believe happened, he made that up to post that drivel of a thread.

There it is...shining proof of what I was talking about, look at the "Thanks Allen, your great" post, utter arselicking, the very thing he said he dislikes....it's ok as long as it's HIS arse!
But I digress.

So I mentioned in the last post if you look hard enough you will see those who are working towards being the next big name to milk money from the masses...take a look at the warrior newsletter...now take a look at THAT person on the forum... wow... he is now a mod, *note to him...you got sommat on yer chin.

Such proof was lovely to see...it backs up what I say perfectly.

Having had about 20 emails from warriors who THANKED me for being straight and honest about it I realised that the "fine line" you tread at the forum is getting thinner and thinner all the time.

Walking on eggshells is not exactly what people thought they would be doing...but they are.

Those who are new there will have to tread carefully, though they do want you there because its YOUR money they are after.

Allen proved himself a coward by posting THAT where I can't answer him, but here I can say what I like... Allen you are a chicken shit!

Bet you have a shiny ass though!

Keep selling the snake oil!

Shame honesty counts for jack shit there eh?!

The other side of the coin... I have seen but am not surprised by the backstabbing going on there too, people I thought were ok have proved to be serious back stabbers and it's seemingly pretty common there from my observations.

Though there are a alot of great people there who are nothing like those I mention above, they at least have the sense to think about things the right way...neither sucking up to Allen or making themselves a target.
These are the smart ones who just get on with it.

I for one am glad to have said my piece, it hit a nerve there else THAT thread wouldn't be there now.

Maybe I have contributed to changing the place for the better.

I don't hold my breath though!

"The truth of the Warriors"

update**
Allen flat out LIED on the forum today saying people were warned before deletion.
Well I was NOT! And EVERYONE on there knows it.
**

Anyone who knows me knows I do not hold back and I do not "sugar coat" things.
I will tell it the way I see it. If what I say bothers you, don't read it.


Many of you will have recently seen what has been happening in the warrior forum, indeed myself being deleted unfairly was one of them but then I am not the only one!

Why should THAT matter to you anyway?

Well I was almost up to 5000 post and have contributed to the forum for almost 4 years and if they can treat me that way they can do it to you too.

So am I writing this because I am bitter?
NO!

I am writing this because I feel let down and I feel what I contributed to the forum has been dismissed...almost 5000 post they just casually dismissed at the press of a button, not bitter but disappointed.

Not only that...the mod who deleted me has NO backbone to even admit to doing it.

Is that the action of a decent person? No I didn't think so either...they are simply a coward.

There has been a number of long term posters with high post count who have been unfairly treated although also a few of the big names have left...including someone you all know well...
J Reese.

Although John left of his own accord I can imagine he was pretty angry and annoyed by it all when it happened, I feel he was let down by Allen badly..I wonder if HE felt that?

Bear in mind although I do not really know what went on in Johns mind at the time, I can only presume, which I won't do.

Here I will be saying what I think about the whole situation and how I think it will be going in the future and why NOW may be the best time for you to really think about your role in the warrior forum.

Look at the fact that ONE mod had been made n/a before... say's alot.

Why help them with great content and also traffic when they so obviously don't give a rats ass about you?

Stick to putting your best content on what YOU own.

Before I go further let me take a moment to explain the way I have seen the warrior forum's wealth being distributed there.
The "big guys" don't need Allen or his forum, they have left him behind, John Reese proved that.

John publicly slammed the forum, since then Allen KNOWS if he is to keep the "big guys" onside he will have to change things regarding the so called "negativity" which is not as bad as it is made out.

The fact is the bigger you are, the more you get hassle in some ways and that is what happens here.

But it probably hurt Allen to see John do that...I can assure you this is a factor else things would NOT be the way they are.

Ready for a shocker?

Allen needs YOU more than you need HIM.

Over the years there has been some great IM careers that started right there in the forum, but now I feel those days are GONE!

And Allen KNOWS it!

Shame for him, he made money from them sharing their little morsels...look at Mike F now for an example...he comes in throws morsels to the members and they lap it up.

Someone even pointed out to me that Mike has in his BFM ebook (manual?) exactly what happens in places like the warriors regarding "fans" and "bashers", if you have it...try and find it.

He is quick to jump in when his fans are losing the argument.

There are others who Allen is trying to keep "onside" and we all know who they are.

The way they promote themselves on the forum...

Yet YOU do that and it's promotional...it gets deleted!

One rule for some...one rule for others.

BUT he also knows one or two of you he can use to create some income, in fact he has already started doing that...look well enough and you can see it.

He is the bitter one really, think about it!

Why did he chase down the higher posting ladies there, I can name at least 3 he has chased out of the forum, and that's just THIS year.
I also know there are one or two who he is watching, yes waiting for ONE slip up and bang they will be gone!

Who? I won't say...you will see it for yourself.

Make sure you are NOT relying solely on that place for income.
It IS the most FICKLE forum out there.

Lets get something straight about the way I see Allen, he must get bored easy with things, look at the things he has done over the years...great start then they die off.

I had respect for the guy but sadly he has blown that recently and I KNOW I am not alone regarding that.

Buy then why should he care...he ONLY cares about the BIG guys who draws the newbies in, where the morsels can be chucked at them thus earning HIM and THEM money...yet it's YOUR money they are getting!

Sod that!

If you want to help THEM get rich then go for it...better for you to have money coming IN than out so create and sell...that's what I am going to concentrate on.

There is ONE way you can really make some serious money there...become the "next biggish guy" and being "flavour of the month"....like Jon Leger did.

Easy? NOPE.

There are others in front of you in that queue!...Look closely and you will see who..
Look closer and you will see how it became that way for them.

Yes I am serious, that and the fact Allen KNEW the members would gobble it up thus make HIM money..

There is something I should point out though, I do NOT believe Allen is making THAT much money overall with the warriors.

Simply because most of those who did generate the income are GONE, they got bigger and better so they don't need him or the warrior forum.

Here is what Allen said to me in PM... after I complained about being banned.

"The guru hating AND loving shit has got to go around here.
I don't like either side, the lovers or the haters."


Um....hang on....He loves the lovers...he NEVER complains about the ones who lick arse and love the "big guys"... he ONLY ever complains to the "bashers"...why?

Why do you think? It keeps the big guys onside having their egos stroked.

See what I mean?

I told him I don't hate anyone...not anywhere, if he read the post below he may "get it".

Why didn't he stop people bashing J Reese before he left?

Stable, horse, bolt, spring to mind.

He regrets John leaving...that much IS obvious.

So if I praised the big guys and licked their arses...I would NEVER have been n/a.

Thanks...but NO thanks... I am not sucking up to them at all... for anything.

If they are decent people who deserve respect then great...sadly alot of them are NOT!

There are one or maybe two mods there who are serious assholes.. they will delete a perfectly good post of yours and when you post asking why, that gets deleted, then every post you make after gets deleted...even if it is to help someone.

I know this it happend several times to me TODAY.

There has always been one or two assholes modding that place, they will follow you around in there and it winds you up...they drive you to losing your rag and getting deleted.

That place is going down the pan and fast.

I am not going to even bother trying with it anymore.

I posted there today asking for advice and opinions on the post below, one reason was it may help them understand why sometimes I get fired up, I asked if they could advise how I could maybe do something that will help me become a better poster there....and never guess what?

It got deleted!

No heart...no balls and no shame.

When Allen sorts out the couple of stupid cowardly moronic mods I may try again.
I don't hold my breath though as they have no balls.

Warriors, those mods? More like bullying idiots.

I am not the only one who is pissed off and fed up with it.

Good luck Allen...those mods are ruining your forum, NOT the members be them "bashers" or "lovers", they make YOUR forum work.

You don't appreciate it.

Any opinions?

"The ultimate fake it till ya make it"

There's a fella you may know, he goes by the name of two initials, if you know who, you must be in the IM niche!

That about sums up the fake that is...you know who, a persona who has probably earned the right to be called the "Ultimate fake it till ya make it".

Lets be clear about something straight away, the real person behind it, is probably a sound(ish) person... ;o) Most likely he is.

But the web of crap and faking it will trip you up in the end, just as lies do for the liars!

There has been plenty of "stepped over the line" moments for most people, the recent events that pissed all the ladies off comes to mind.

No doubt, the real fella is sound and done a great job of marketing the persona the way it needed to be done in order to get the desired results...made it!

The real fella is a good marketer in his own right.
He did what he planned and a good job, to a point, still ain't directly publicising ya persona.. ;o)

But to a point means he did overstep the mark with many.

Ah well this persona writing / marketing must be fun... ;o)

Rather be myself, yet had I done something of that nature it wouldn't been that extreme!

What a .... ;o)

So, no offence to the real fella, who is probably doing great and no doubt a nice bloke.

But sheesh... the whole thing has to die off soon surely, I mean the whole circus!?

Or will he lap it up from newbies from now till they wise up?

Lets face it... If I go out to town tomorrow and stand in the street asking passers by if they know who ?? is?

They will say...who?

Not ONE will know I bet.

So is he not the "Ultimate fake it till ya make it"?

Fame only in the IM niche really?

Has he gone as far as it can go?

Did the gullible ones really decide to go meet a "fake"?

Funny thing show business, even funnier in IM show business!

Any one else have an opinion on it?

Clickbank blacklist Cody Moya's hoplink......

AND suspends his account...That IS Great... ;o)

Why you may ask?

I got an email from him, as I WAS on his list, in this email...

The unethical man tried to undermine other "ethical" affiliates who have worked hard at generating sales, even undermining the product owner himself.

Absolutely terrible... here is a part of THAT email sent to me..



“If you already bought “Dominating CB” go ahead to clickbank and refund.
After that buy through my link because what you have is not full without
what you are getting from me.

If you get “Dominating CB” through my link I will give you follow very
important software and video:”


Now is THAT nice or not?

Here is what clickbank had to say after it was reported...


================================================
We have blacklisted this affiliate's hoplink as well have
suspended their account. It does take a few hours sometimes
for the hoplink to be disabled after this has been done.
They will also be notified that this type of activity is not
tolerated by Clickbank.
================================================


What a NICE bloke...NOT.
If you ARE on this mans list..

I would recommend you unsubscribe asap!
