That's the ugly side of the Internet, and I want nothing to do with that. I see guys like this Yaro Starak all over the place marketing to people about how to get rich by marketing to people about how to get rich. It's really no different from multilevel marketing, pyramid scams. Their product offers nothing of real value to anyone - they all just want to get rich right now and they don't care what lies they have to feed desperate people to get there. I'm under the impression we enjoy kindred views of these people.
A well-functioning, smart-marketed e-commerce op or online service that generates a comparably modest revenue but offers something besides amulets and fairy dust is what I would consider a smashing success. As you said, writing's a fine business too, o'course
exactly. You get some really fantastic sites out there that are different and actually offer a really good product or service, becoming part of that is an awesome business opportunity.
I apologize though, The people on the wrong side of the net target people that are new to the area, and I did not want to see that happen to you, or anyone else. Its an area in marketing I feel really strongly about, and have been advising against it for a while now.
Some writers I have seen online get anything up to $100 (sometimes more) an article, once they have been in the market for a while and have established themselves as authorities.
