Online Business Myths You Must Avoid

Apr 30 08:47 2005 Hamad Kadmany Print This Article

I am about to present to you some of the major myths, most online entrepreneurs encounter through their journey within that minefield, the online business minefield...

Can YOU imagine what the average person,Guest Posting like you and me, face when searching for a real online business opportunity?

With all of the online hype today, I encounter dozens of dozens of well written, professional websites promising that they are the BEST deal for YOU. It’s so confusing, and fool me, I have wasted my time and my money on some of those false deals when I started my online journey.

So allow me to expose some of those myths many are trying to smoothly sell YOU online. Those myths hold true NOT only when searching for a real online business opportunity, but ALSO for any online product. Let’s get started...

1. “Free Lunch”

I often hear claims about making very big bucks in a very short period of time with no effort at all through an online business.

Please, don't believe it. There’s no such thing as free lunch and it takes effort to succeed online. Exceptions DO exist out there, but don’t build your business based on exceptions. If they happen, GREAT, if they don’t, YOUR efforts and your core desire will help you achieve the desired results.

2. “Get Rich Overnight”

As I mentioned in my last point, promising to get rich fast is an insult to your intelligent. Unless you win the lottery, you need to put an effort to succeed online. However, don’t let this stop you from having your real online business, you will earn big time for your efforts.

3. “Make yyy Bucks in zzz time, 100% Guaranteed!”

I often see ads ‘screaming’ something like: “Make $9000 In 1 Year!” or some other promises of a similar form...

A real business opportunity should NOT limit your potential, nor pressure you to perform. It should be all up to. The more you perform, the more you earn, without a limit. If you do not perform, then a fair deal you will not make a dime. That’s the TRUTH in black and white.

And, there’s nothing Guaranteed! YES, it is garneted that if you follow the system, be persistent and put effort, you will succeed. If you don’t, then you won’t!

4. Pyramid Schemes

A pyramid scheme is where an income is generated solely on the process of recruiting others into the business. Sometimes the pyramid is hidden within a product or service of a questionable value that is never related to the general public, however, you are actually buying the right to recruit others into the scheme. This is illegal.

There should be NO cost required to participate in recruiting new people and affiliates should be only paid on product movement and NEVER on recruiting.

5. “Must Buy Products to Maximize Your Income”

Many try to work you out with some math... “If you purchase this, you’ll get into that level, and then you’ll earn that money, then you’ll totally make...”

Allow me to be honest about this. I DO believe in the concept of “buying from your own store”. I do enjoy some of the products the business I’m in offers, because they are excellent and I was going to buy them anyway, so why would I buy them from my competitors?! But here’s where the BIG however comes in...

It’s OK if buying products would let you advance in your rank, but it must NOT be the only way to achieve it. You should have the opportunity to advance in your rank according to your efforts ONLY. If buying products is the ONLY way you can advance in your rank, then it’s a fraud!

Real business opportunities are available in the online business minefield, but many bad apples DO exist as well. Make sure to do your homework. No matter how smooth those selling letters and websites are, make sure they are NOT conveying one of those myths. Make sure the opportunity that you are considering is telling you the TRUTH without big void promises; otherwise, they are just wasting your time and your money.
