An important key to your long-term success. You are better off to learn how to build your own system because “done for you” systems can go away and leave you in the cold.
There is a current trend toward online business systems that are all done for you. Just pay your money, enter some information and click away.
The Danger “Done For You” systems!”
I’ll try to keep this short and to the point. If you are new to internet marketing, it is hard to resist the “Done For You” systems. It’s nice to think that you and build a large income with a few dollars and a click. The danger is in the fact that there will be a mass migration of people jumping in and flooding the system.
Example. Affiliate marketing has gained recognition as the best way to build a business online. No products to create, and packages to ship. While there are definite advantages to affiliate marketing there is a problem. The word “Affiliate” has been flagged by Google, and others and anything with the word Affiliate will get shoved to the back of the line.
I absolutely believe in affiliate marking as a concept. I just know that it is wise to avoid using the word affiliate. Thousands of people lost their income when Google changed its algorithms. Unfortunately, they had nothing to fall back on.
So let me connect the dots! If you are depending on a “done for you” system you are in trouble if you aren’t equipped and trained to recover. It is vital, when building an online business, to learn how to build and maintain your own system.
Fear Not! There is training available to help you step by step. It is no longer possible to just post an ad and fill your bank account with cash. It is possible to learn how to establish a system and build multiple streams of long-term income, with affiliate marketing, with proper guidance.
Reality! No more free lunch.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
