Exclamation The "Real" Secret To Making Money Online

Some internet marketing experts and so-called gurus make a lot of money selling you their "secret" money-making programs. It seems like every other week they're launching another new program.

Why? Because people keep buying.

Are these programs bad? Not all of them. But they're not real secrets either.

Well, I'm going to tell you the real secret to making money online - something the gurus will never tell you. And it's not going to cost you a dime - not one red cent!

Ready? Here it is:

If you want to make money online, you have to learn the art of self-promotion.

That's it. That's the real secret to making money online or offline.

If you master the art of self-promotion, it doesn't matter what you're selling. You will make money with it - period.

So how do you learn the art of self-promotion?

Go right to the source. Ilise Benum has written an excellent book titled, The Art of Self-Promotion. I have the book, and it's worth every penny of the $14.95 I paid for it.

No, it's not another e-book. It's a real book - the kind you can hold in your hands.

Anyway, if you're serious about making money online, do yourself a favor and buy the book.

By the way, I don't make a dime for recommending this book. This is just another free marketing tip!

I wholeheartedly agree! The late Gary Halbert stressed this as much as he stressed any other marketing philosophy. The problem that most people encounter is that they have an ingrained sense to "not talk about themselves".

If you do..Get over it! If you can't self promote, and no..I don't mean blatant BS, then you are missing the boat. People like to associate themselves with "Experts". Take a hint...be an expert and let people know that you are.

Just my opinion

Gary

I saw this book on Amazon, and it looked like a good read, but I was a bit squeamish when I saw it was being sold through a third party vendor.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm probably going to order this now.

I agree to you. If you can sell yourself, if you have a power to attract people and believe what you are saying, no matter you're product is you will definitely succeed.

Good day! Thanks for sharing this idea. Other best way for newcomers to start to make a profit online is to not try their own thing. One of the most popular and proven methods of making your own income online is to become an affiliate marketer.

Um, no...you actually have to make an effort to make money.

There is no such thing as a business that you build from nothing, on nothing that suddenly starts spitting out dollars to support your family without some work involved.

But it is not hard work in the same way that digging ditches or making bricks is.

If you need $$ quick, provide a service and trade your time for dollars until you can get the passive income streams in place...
