They Come, They Go – Sadly, It’s The Culture of the Traffic Exchanges

Only a certain few people are truly built for this….

These people have stuck with it. When the roller coaster that is internet marketing starts to dip, they hold onto their seats and get ready for the bumps.

When success finds them, they do not get too high on themselves, they usually end up re-investing their earnings into building a better brand, business and image.

These are the select few folks who truly…Get it.

Sadly, most just don’t have the vision and tenacity to stay the course….

It’s been happening since the start of traffic exchanges, and it’s not going anywhere. It usually sounds like this;

“This is un-targeted traffic, I can do better with SEO…”

“It’s filled with freebie seekers…”

“The big boys make all the money, we can’t compete…”

“I’m not getting any results so this doesn’t work…”

“It’s not fair…”

And a host of other fantastic excuses as to why the world is against you and you cannot get any results from these programs. They come, they poke around for a bit, they see it’s actually going to take effort and time…And they disappear….

But the funniest thing about this industry is that they never disappear forever…They ALWAYS come back.

Sadly, they need to start all over again and go to the back of the line.

Be a stick in the mud!

Don’t become another statistic. The only ‘secret’ to all this stuff is to stay the course and keep growing.

The Internet Marketing Vortex of Doom

This is a sad reality…

90% of the people that read this blog post…Won’t change. They won’t embrace proven techniques and strategies. They will continue to spin their wheels and scratch their heads while asking themselves ‘Where did it all go wrong?’

And that’s because internet marketing is designed like that! It’s designed to keep you in a loop and never ending cycle of failure! It keeps the ‘little guy‘ in a ‘little guy mentality‘. It doesn’t promote growth. It promotes staying the same….

Let me introduce you to something…

I call this the Internet Marketing Vortex of Doom 😉

If you look on the left side of the (horribly hand drawn) graphic, you’ll see the ‘typical’ internet marketing mindset that happens at about month 2 or 3 of joining the next big opportunity online.

This mindset includes things like…

– Canceling subscriptions to Evergreen products
– Then giving up on Evergreen products and/or the new opportunity
– Playing the
Blame Game and pointing fingers at everyone but the mirror
– And finally, returning to find a brand new shiny object….Ready to be promoted.

Rinse and repeat…

The cycle commences yet again and you are trapped in the vortex…It’s never ending blame games while giving up over and over and then of course, having to start again in a brand new program….

But then there are the few…

Who go against the grain and against the flow while saying things like I’m going to try something a little different. I’m going to use these crazy concepts like +1 and start to build a business with long term goals and vision.

Then ‘crazy’ things like this start to happen…

– Growth
– Progress
– Success

Just by changing one habit, every single day…These new marketers and business people are seeing the fruits of their labor. They are making decisions that help their business and improve their results over time while the herd continues into the vortex of doom.

So I have a question for you…Would you rather start to see results in your business? Growth? Progress and ultimately success? Just by changing one simple thing you are doing today?

Or do you wanna go hang out with the masses in the Vortex?

The choice is yours….I choose +1 every single day!
