Rat Race V 2.0

June 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 145

To me the 'rat race' is all about people chasing the same dream. They go to work each day, come home, eat and sleep. The next day the start all over again trying to get further in life.

When they get that promotion they have been wanting and they have more money coming in they get a bigger house, a better car and borrow even more money. By the end of it they are no better of than they were before.

Since the dawn of the internet people have been turning to the internet in the hope of becoming financially independent and leaving their day job to work from home.

For a while the internet was a great place to start an online business that anybody could work from home full or part time.

However as this type of new business has become more popular each day more and more people seek income opportunity on the internet in the hope of a new income.

I have been online for a couple of years now and have come to realize a whole new type of rat race that people are running in. Chasing the same dream but going round in circles getting nowhere!

The popular home based business to start is affiliate marketing.

In my time online the one thing that I have come to notice is that this world of affiliate marketing is people who are trying to make money online selling products that help people make money online to other people who want to make money online.

Is this not a rat race?

I would not go as far as to call this a plague but it certainly something that needs fixing in our industry.

Lets look at the offline equivalent of the homes based business; Network Marketing.

Network marketing is a business that allows people to start their own direct selling business by selling products to their friends and family. How many direct selling companies out their sell products that teach people how to work from home? None! They are selling products and services that people need and want.

Yet for some reason when the fantastic network marketing work is applied to the internet companies set up membership sites that teach people how to make money online AND the way you get paid is by inviting others to the training program.

When you site down and think about it you can see why I call this the Rat Race V 2.0.

So... how can you get out of the online rat race and really make a true income on the internet.

Well, I follow one rule of thumb when choosing a program to promote on the internet.

"If there was not comp plan would I still pay for this product or service".

What is important when starting an online business is that you sell products to customers and not to affiliates. If you have a good product then your customers will continue to purchase and you will keep getting paid.

If you sell to affiliates, they will soon stop paying for your program because they are not making the money that the program promised them in the first place.

Stay sharp, and stay out Rat Race V 2.0
