The Truth Behind Promoting Online

It's amazing the reactions you get when you hear the word "internet"! Some will say it's a scam, others will say it's the land of fame and riches and still others don't know what to think. Take it from me who learned the truth behind promoting online, the hard way.

MINDSET


When I refer to mindset here, I am referring to knowledge! Having the knowledge of what to expect is crucial to your success. Having a business online is no different than having one offline. The benefits are that you get exposure a whole lot sooner than you would offline, but it still needs to be WORKED and PROMOTED!

Unfortunately the ads floating around the internet, give everyone a false hope of "do nothing and get rich". So when those that do want to take a chance, come online having high expectations of becoming rich, only to be disappointed when days, weeks and even months roll by and still have nothing to show for it but an empty wallet.

The truth behind promoting online requires that you know what to expect going with any program you choose online and then having the work ethic it takes to make it successful, that is the second point we will discuss now.

WORK ETHIC


Knowing the truth behind promoting online requires good work ethic. Why do we say that? Because expecting to come online and just sitting and letting your upline do all the work is sure to lead to failure.

At the same token, having an upline that expects their downline to do all the work is also a recipe for disaster. So what is required is that you work hard to get the exposure you need for yourself and your business.

Yes I know the truth is not what everyone wants to hear. It's easier to want to know that you can do as little work as possible and still make fortunes, but the truth behind promoting online requires that you work hard to achieve what you came online in the first place.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS


Why is it easier to believe something untrue is beyond me, but we all do it. What could be a realistic expectation? We could ask this question, if you were going to open a business offline, how long do you think you would have to operate in the red before you saw a profit for your investment?

Most would probably say 2 to 5 years and they would think nothing about it, yet online they expect it in weeks or even months! This only leads to disappointments and many quitting way too soon.

You have two choices, you can either take the easy way out and go for the programs that will give you instant returns for your investment (which many don't last long) or you can use common sense and know that the truth promoting online takes knowledge, work and dedication.
