“17k in 48 hours, even as a complete beginner…”
That’s the Facebook post that triggered me to grab my camera and shoot my latest video for this week.
I’ve had enough of all the BS in the industry and I think it’s time to speak out…
I mean, SERIOUSLY, come on! 17 grand in a weekend??? Who believes this kind of stuff????
Well, sadly, many people! I’d love to think that everyone sees through the lies, but unfortunately so many don’t! And I can’t blame them!
The promise of making a HUGE lot of money FAST is sooooo appealing. Who wouldn’t want to jump on a webinar that promises to make nearly a year’s salary in a couple of days?
I know I would! If I didn’t know better, that is.
Now if you’re starting out, “from scratch with ZERO experience”, you don’t need this kind of cr*p – seriously you don’t! It will mess up your brain and give you completely false expectations – and that’s the LAST thing you need, especially if you’re in desperate need for money.
Now just to be clear: affiliate marketing can be extremely profitable. As I write this, on July 18th, I’ve already made over 2k this month, and I’m spending a lot of my time at the pool with my kids, making the most of the boiling hot summer we have in my part of the world.
I’m NOT saying that affiliate marketing is a scam, because it’s NOT, not at all!
But telling people that they can make 17k in 48 hours, even if they’re complete beginners is just like telling people “you can be a millionaire tomorrow if you buy a lottery ticket”. It can happen, but it’s EXTREMELY unlikely – I mean, really, really, REALLY unlikely.
This kind of post makes me so mad, because I truly feel for all the people who’ll waste precious time and money as a result.
Wild income claims mess up with your brain, you see. If you go into affiliate marketing with this kind of expectation, you’re then going to think you’re doing something wrong if you don’t make a ton of cash fast; you’ll then beat yourself up; you’ll be highly likely to then go and buy another program or course, that promises you yet other massively unrealistic things… and when that doesn’t bring you the money you hoped for, you’ll move onto something else… Before you know it, you’ll have wasted months, if not years, chasing an illusion. Not to mention the money you’ll have spent.
And I don’t want this for you!
I SO want you to learn the essential skills needed to create, grow, and scale a real, profitable affiliate marketing business.
This is why these posts make me so angry! And I’ve just had enough – I’m not going to stay polite and quiet anymore about it!
Here’s my video about this 👇
If you’re starting out in this, please, please be careful: don’t be taken in by wild claims of big money fast. Learn from ethical marketers (like me lol) and you’ll spend a lot less money than if you chase shiny objects. Always remember the saying: “all that glitters is not gold”. It’s true…
