    Yesterday I enrolled in a webinar: What's Working RIGHT NOW" in Internet Marketing. For some reason I thought that I'll see something interesting, but all I saw were gurus chatting,laughing and pushing their products.
    I'm really getting allergic to this kind of stuff.

    Its sad to see people following the gurus and purchasing their stuff.
    Here is the structure of most of the products:
    Hype, hype, how the guru became the guru, detailed instructions on how to sign in if few places and a vague plan on how to make money.

    I have done some pretty bh stuff but I don't have the stomach to do this, to spread these crappy products and let down beginners in IM and take their money.

    If you are looking for some kind of secret that will explode your earnings, search the forum there is plenty of good info here and use your head. IMO the breakthrough comes when you use your head, adding your own twist to some techniques.

    Its just sad to see people eager to su** a guru's co** and pay them $97 for it.

    Hehe that's why we download the "guru's products" for free here. I will never give money to someone who is claiming that he will show me how to make millions in 2 days :). Most of the gurus made money showing others how to make money. Real marketers who make money from normal physical products don't do seminars and don't teach others. They make the real cash.

    I always see those self-proclaimed "guru´s" selling their WSO about "money making methods" in that other shitty forum.

    But honestly, if they were so super good in what they are doing why would they even have to spend a minute in developing a product/eBook for $40 that makes them maybe $4,000-10,000. That should be just peanuts if they would really be that successful (and therefore a waste of time...)

    Another thing I noticed is that this seems to be some kind of "circle". Gurus sell noobs their products, those noobs develop within some time to internet marketers, start to sell their own products, become gurus, sell even more products to noobs, etc. etc.

    Why not help out for FREE and chuck your hostgator and aweber affiliate links to them?

    They're actually tools they will need and will probably end up buying anyway...

    I've just begun unsubscribing from all of the lists. All they do is tell you how great the latest ebook is, and offer you the chance to buy it via their aff. link! :D

    One thing I've noticed is they never really tell you what you will be doing after you get their ebook. And no wonder...

    Question is what were you thinking? hehehe
    Im always amazed that people fall for these things. If anyone was really making the big bucks the last place would be selling someone else their secrets.
    Their sucess comes from the noobs looking for the big bang!
    In the sales of their product. What ive learned from the past is stay way clear of these type webinars and meetings.
    You will find what works by taking a few minutes to surf the net. See whats out there and adding your spin. :third:

    People tend to fall for the idea that there's a "big secret" to earning money online and in the past when i've tried to show them the way they ditch it, i think because it's not the magic pill they're looking for.

    I never once bought an ebook and i've a lot more successful than most.

    Want to know what's inside the next "how i make £7,000 per month" ebook? Take a look at the others rehashed WSOs in the download section.

    And how is someone to determine what works when there are hundreds of sites promising the moon but delivering nothing...

    It took me years to find something that works, and it wasn't being advertised anywhere. I found it by accident. :cool:

    i should write a book... :D

    My profile may say I'm a noob, but thats just my secret technique, I have mastered IM so well, I've been generating $$$$$$ in just minutes of getting into this business. If you want to know how just click here http://www.youareamoronforclickingthis.c0m.

    I made millions in a matter of minutes and you can to by following my proven technique.

    Guru's remind me of multilevel marketing like amway or quixstar. same crap, people who started at whatever the sales pitch is a couple days before you did, pretending they have all the answers when they don't know jack.

    I don't know jack, and I know I don't know jack....and I'll fix that situation on my own, not with the help of some guru.

    Agreed. There is really no point in buying internet marketing ebooks and courses if you ask me. No secret method is going to be explained in there that isn't already described on about 100 other free blogs out there.

    It doesn't really matter whose product you buy, it's a waste of money. There are some areas where products may be legitimate like for example VB.Net coding. It's so hard to find some quality stuff and they aren't hurting themselves by teaching us how to code with quality materials.

    So for me, that's what it comes down to. Is the creator of this ebook jeopardizing their main income by selling this product? If the answer is yes, it's not going to teach what you think it will.

    sigh... people still don't realize that these "Gurus" are just people who couldn't make any real money online so they prey on noobs and sell their useless products and make shit up about being super successful.

    Frank Kern, Ed Dale, that other bitch I forgot her name, they are all cons

    Many people keep buying books & courses even after getting scammed a dozen times. Why should the gov protect people from their own stupidity? :confused:

    Since going bh in 2007 I have seen more bullshit being peddled to noobs than I care to even remember. I'm like you in that I literally fell into my little niche after stumbling around for a while. Unlike you I was lucky in that it only took a few months and while I'm not making what I was in 2007, I make a very large amount of money to basically do fuck-all from my home office for a few hours a day

    I don't know when but there is a day coming very soon where I AM going to write a book. It's going to be about 5 pages, I'm going to charge a fuckload of money for it and it's going to work. Unlike these douchebag "guru's" who sell bullshit.

    And if you pm me asking me what I do or to sell you something now, you'll get ignored. This is not a presell. I make way too much money to piss it away due to saturation. I'm just sick of seeing people getting taken by "gurus".
