There is literally a sea of information and offers out there in Internet Marketing Land that promise the “lifestyle of the rich and famous” with little to no monetary investment or work expenditure. Like anything else, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
I’ve looked through a LOT of courses and many of them really do get you excited and ready to jump in. Unfortunately, the results can often be nowhere near as profitable as the course instructor promises. I just read this recent post from Finch Sells about turning $5000 into an affiliate business. The man behind Finch Sells, tells it like it is with no fluff and a dose of reality. I always look forward to reading his posts as they tend to bring me back down to the ground, after getting excited over some of the “fluffier” guru promotions.
Take Facebook ads for real estate agencies, for example. I hate to say it but every real estate agency I have ever worked with are penny pinchers. They simply do not want to spend any more than they have to and if they do take a chance, they need to see an immediate ROI or else they are not interested. I’ve tried ads for different agencies, based on a couple courses I watched. First, the agencies will NEVER pay the suggested $1000 fee to place the ad (even $100 is like pulling teeth), despite the gamble of a great commission. You almost have to fund the Facebook ad yourself and collect the calls, passing them on to the agency who would then pay you part of the commission. They didn’t like that option too much either.
I’ve been monitoring a lot of Facebook newsfeed ads recently and reading the comments. From what I’m seeing, it does not look like Facebook ads are the gateway to traffic that some suggest. What are your thoughts and experiences?
A quick note about the reviews and tool links on this site: I am an affiliate for most every product I review or link to. I purchase these products and test them myself in order to create quality reviews. All my reviews are completed as honestly as possible. I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review as to the content of the review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product, this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
