Don’t Fall for Get Rich Quick Schemes and Products

There’s a lot of so-called internet marketing guru’s out there coming up with new “get rich quick” products on a daily basis. They like to call them “blueprints” or “secrets revealed” or whatever else sounds cool, and tout them as the next best thing for making money online.

That sounds great at first, but the problem is that most of them are flat out lying to you and getting rich by tricking you into thinking you can do the same if you buy their product while they sit back and collect your money. It isn’t as easy as they make it out to be on their fancy sales pages. Think about it, if it was that easy everyone would do it and everyone would be rich. The simple truth is that you can make money online but it’s not easy and it won’t happen fast. And you definitely won’t get anywhere if you keep buying into all these new schemes that pop up all the time.

These money making schemes come in all shapes and sizes but they are all basically doing the same thing… Giving you false hope so you will buy their product. For example, there are programs that claim you can earn $10,000 in a week or some other insane amount. The problem is that in order to do that you need to have a lot of internet marketing experience, friends in high places, an already successful online business, an established email list, the right business plan, time, money, and who knows what else. The average person buying into these programs doesn’t have what it takes right away. It takes a lot time and effort to build up to a good online income, and even then $10,000 a week is rarely attained by anyone.

Building an online business and making a living from home is a lot of work. Putting in several hours of productive work every day is necessary. But the pros do eventually outweigh the cons once you start getting a nice income coming in.

Anyway the point of this post is basically just to warn you to beware of make money schemes, especially the ones that cost a lot of money. If the information is really that great then why would someone let everyone else know about it by selling it for a relatively low amount when they could keep it to themselves and really become wealthy from it? If you think about it something just doesn’t add up.

When I started my online home based business I got sucked into several get rich quick schemes and ended up wasting thousands of dollars along with a lot of time I can never get back. This was all while I was in college so I didn’t have much money to be throwing around like that. It was hard to swallow at first but I learned my lesson, moved on, kept working hard, and eventually became a successful internet marketer.

There’s plenty of FREE information on blogs, social media, and forums that will teach you everything you need to know about making money online. No need to spend all your money on product after product because they will keep on coming and you will never get anywhere except deeper in debt.

    Thanks for the very practical advice. I think many are so eager to earn extra income that they ignore all of the red flags… If it’s too good to be true, than it probably is.
