So it has been a crazy year for me and it seems a lot of internet marketers out there. I wanted to really talk about some of the legit marketers out there and who you need to listen to for a point of authority. BinaryBurn is going start dedicating a post a week for internet marketing Tips or making money online. In 2006, I decided to look more into business models and entrepreneurship after reading the Rich Dad Poor Dad Book. Over those years my goal was to research who the major players in internet marketing were and the ones who were just replicating and ripping people off. Also there were some who would hop to one marketer and use them and their resources just to get to another bigger marketer they knew was connected to the one they were using. ”Marketer hopping” is what I like to call it.
Over those years I was able to come in contact with many marketers who made legit millions and some who I saw create Fortune 500 and 100 companies from scratch. It was awesome to watch these marketers transform their images to make millions. So while in the process I created a information product that did thousands of dollars,(which was a test) just to see if I could really make some cash online. In the long run, I would buy and try business blueprints that other marketers stated they use to make money online. I would try them and document them in a info product.
This continued for several years until I got burned by some so called Marketers who took a plugin of mine and pretty much bundled it with some other ideas we talked about and used it to his advantage. This individual went on to make close to a half of million dollars with another major player in the marketing world. If you haven’t been in internet marketing or had the luxury of dealing with other marketers, let me enlighten you on how to become broke very quickly.
Don’t join a mastermind group or reveal too much of your ideas. In this business it is really good to keep you inner ideas to yourself or you will become mentally bankrupt and burned out. Most Marketers are out for themselves or if they want to be a part of your business it is because you have a big email list or convert a metric shit ton of traffic.
One thing, I really want to do is reveal the people I think have created a smart and honest business plan to make a legitimate amount of money online. ( Next week, I will reveal my very first marketer I think is probably the best and most honest marketer to follow so stay tuned for next weeks blog post.)
So what happened to me?
2011 -2012ish I had to change somethings. I went ahead and left my Telecommunications job working in a Network Operations Center to pursue a job as a Network Engineer II job for a major Hospital nearby. Reason being, I have always kept a full-time job to supplement my income from internet marketing. (YES, I am a internet marketer with a Full time job!) This reason was simple I love technology and everything that has to do with Information Technology. Back in early 90′s I used to subscribe to 2600 magazine and was really into the hacker scene on IRC . This is where I got my start to learning about networking and computer security.
Computer Security is one of my up most passions. Ever since the movie “War Games” I have been totally addicted. I realized after talking to many Marketers on Skype the consensus was do what you love. After switching jobs, I was came down with double pneumonia and felt closer to death than I have ever felt. So internet marketing just went down hill from there. I had to step out for quite awhile. I removed most of my intellectual property online and kept some businesses such as web hosting and other sites that still generated a bit of income. Now this year the only place I will focus is this blog and combine all my personal likes and dislikes in this blog.
I still love the internet marketing scene and the people I have met through the Warrior Forum and other places. But, a personal blog is a place you can go and just talk about stuff you are interested in and share your opinions and ideas. That being said stay tuned for more on this topic and plenty of others every week!
