I already know what I am. An Affiliate Marketer, who just happens to blog at this moment in time. And if in the future.
Some better way of making money online. Comes along that I like. You can bet your sweet life. That I will jump all over it in a heartbeat.
I am what you would call. A natural Business Opportunity Seeker.
How about you?
I had to ask you that question because of some of the articles that I’ve read from other bloggers. On the subject of Internet Marketing.
It seems to me that some of them. Are trying to re-write the rules of Online Marketing as we know it. By starting a rebellion against Internet Marketing itself.
They have declared themselves as the new rulers of the Internet. Where virtually all forms of advertising on your website is frowned upon.
According to them. Squeeze pages, sales pages, and pop-ups. Are the work of the devil. And should be banished forever.
They also are very reluctant to admit, what their true motives are.
Instead… they will tell you that they are the best friend that you never had. And all they’re interested in is helping you succeed.
If you are already…or maybe your thinking about. Becoming one of these new breed of male bloggers. Then what I’m about to tell you will hurt.
Blogging. With the purpose of making money online, makes you an Internet Marketer by default. No matter how hard you try to disguise it.
And the sooner you recognize, and accept this fact.
The better of you will be.
Sure you can call yourself an Attraction Marketer, Content Curator, Relationship Marketer. Or hide behind some other fancy buzz word title, if you wish.
But you and I both know. That in the end, it all comes down to one thing.
Your website has to make money, otherwise it won’t survive. The new breed of Bloggers seem to forget this.
All they keep telling you is. “Write Quality Content and concentrate on making friends first with visitors to your blog.”
Facebook and Amplify is my answer to that piece of bad advice.
I’m sure that you are already aware of how successful Facebook is. But it wasn’t always that way.
The original vision of Mark Zuckerburg, was to use the site as a way of contacting all of his Geeky Harvard friends.
Well…fast forward a few years later, and look at what Facebook has now become.
Compare that to the story of Amplify.
A very popular website, that I was using as recently as 2011. In my opinion, the reason why Amplify failed…was because it had a very poor business model to begin with.
Unfortunately for them. They spent far too much of their time providing a great Free service and being friendly. And not enough time on the business side of things.
Facebook did not end up the same way as Amplify. Because Mark Zuckerburg or somebody closely connected to him.
Quickly realized that running a popular website. That is mainly devoted to friends and well wishers.
Is a sure fire way to becoming broke fast. You need to learn from the mistakes made by Amplify.
And remember that. Creating original content for your blog is a requirement. Making fake friends online is not.
If you continue on your path of making friends first. And putting business second. All you will do is attract a lot of junk traffic to your website.
Instead of the targeted traffic that it needs to survive…
