A vast majority of people who have tried how to make genuine money online have had many unpleasant experiences jumping from one scam to the other.
The trend is…
…an opportunity seeker finds something online that is probably good. Instead of sitting down to read and understand the whole concept and then taking action where necessary, they find themselves chasing one shiny object to another and thereby being scammed in the process.
If you’re like most people you probably have experience this in the past and you need to pay good attention here and you’d like to read this post to the very end.
There are so many scams out there!
It is not uncommon to see programs that promise you overnight riches – without having to sell, recruit and even without having to do anything other than taking action! And guess what taking that action is; your guess is as good as mine – buying (paying money) into their own opportunity. They’re actually recruiting you but they said earlier you would make money without recruiting!
So you come in and find out too late that you don’t ever make money without selling something to somebody and then you become discouraged and start looking for the next “easy” money making opportunity to join.
Thus the vicious cycle continues and one concludes “nothing really works online.” And other people who never really tried it themselves also buy into the idea that “nothing works online.”
This reminds me of the story of the 8 monkeys…
The story is reportedly based on an actual experiment conducted in the U.S.A. by Dr. Harry Harlow and his associates at the Primate Laboratory of the University of Wisconsin.
Eight monkeys were put in room. There is a ladder in the middle of the room, leading to a bunch of bananas hung from a hook in the ceiling.
Whenever any monkey tried to climb the ladder to get the banana, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water and that made them very miserable. Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempted to climb the ladder, it got the beating of its life by the other monkeys because they didn’t want to be sprayed. With time, none of the eight monkeys ever attempted to climb the ladder.
One of the first original monkeys is then removed, and replaced with a new monkey. Seeing the bananas and the ladder, it wonders why none of the other monkeys went for them. Undaunted with their action, he starts to climb the ladder. Sure enough all the other monkeys give it a thorough beating. It has no idea why. However, it doesn’t attempt climbing the ladder again.
Another monkey is removed and replaced. The newcomer does the obvious – attempts climbing the ladder, and gets the beating of its life! The previous newcomer, who, grateful that it’s not on the receiving end this time, participated in the beating because all the other monkeys where doing same and that had to done to it before. It had no idea why the new monkey was being attacked.
One after the other, all the original monkeys were removed and replaced. Eight new monkeys where now in the room – none of them ever being sprayed with water while attempting to climb the ladder but all of them enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tried without having any idea why.
This is what happens online all the time. The people who have had bad experiences develop thick skin to every other opportunity. They don’t stop there, they bully new entrants with so much negativity that they also give up. This goes on to the point that those who never ever tried internet marketing become the worst critics of the system with no concrete reasons.
My own experience
A friend once asked me, “man, why do you believe in the abstract?” I was also told on a $50,000 business grant panel interview that “this online business thingy doesn’t make sense to us” and that was how I lost out on the grant just because I was interviewed by panel members who were aliens to internet marketing.
