Red face Watch out for get-rich-schemes... and most of them are!

We see lots of get-rich-schemes on the net. All those people post videos claiming how they are making tens of thousands per day. And they try to sell you a course with step-by-step of how to be like them. How many of those actually work? While I've found a couple, I'd like to get more recommendations. Thanks.

Heck, last night I thought I found the one program that would make me thousands a month, after 10 minutes into watching the sales pitch video on the homepage, I knew it was a scam and not help the customer at all but the pockets of the website owner.

I mean come on, if you are making thousands and thousands a month, why create a product and sell it for $297 in which seems to be a typical price for most useless products..

I've been around for many years in affiliate marketing niche and tend to get a gut feeling when something just doesn't sound right. To many newbies online fall into the trap of these get rich quick schemes'.

It's really not that easy to tell unless the product is being introduced by some reputable marketers. If not, usually I'd pay attention to the refund policy. As soon I don't find the product satisfactory within a couple of hours after purchase, I ask for a full refund.

I just get a gut feeling and stick with it. If I actually did pass up on a legit offer then it's my loss.

Then again, it's xmas and I didn't want to risk investing into something when I spent a fortune on presents and low on money. lol

There are some artfully done pitches, so don't be afraid to watch them, as you can learn something! Just don't necessarily spend any money on them.

Well technically alot of them do work its just takes more effort which people are not willing to do. These methods work for them but they realized they can make even more money selling it to people while following it themselves.

Those people make money by selling their "techniques." Well, some of them might be legit. But I believe most are just scams.

Just always remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

The net is full of it! And lets be honest....we've all bought into it at some point in time.

The best thing I ever did was spend a couple of days going through my Inbox and un-subscribed from all the crap. Then I got myself a mentor (actually got TWO now!) both of which are 7 figure marketers.

Now I focus, focus, focus, and do what I'm told! The foundations are now set, a new brand is born, and I look forward to the journey ahead and make it my goal to help as many people as I can along the way!

I was really tricked by these get-rich-quick-scheme when I first step into Affiliate Marketing, lucky for me that I don't have much money to spend in these scrap but I've lost some too. After found that many of them are scam, I learned a lession for my whole life.

That is why I like to abide by the motto: Slow and steady. From investing to web traffic/ranking, keep it slow and consistent growth and you will be happy.
