Credibility - Without It You're NOWHERE

Internet marketers, when making a list of the things they think they need in order to successfully run an Internet business usually include the following:

1. A Web Site
2. Ads
3. Articles
4. Money For Promotion
5. A Product
6. An E-Zine

And the list goes on and on. But 95% of them forget one thing, and it's probably the one most important thing you need to have if you're going to succeed.

It's called credibility.

Instead of trying to define what that is, I'm going to give you a very simple example of how not having it will shoot down any chance you have of being successful.

You've just signed up with this great new program. It's the hottest thing since sliced bread. You've got your ads out all over the place. Finally, somebody emails you or even calls you on the phone if you've provided them with a number, and they ask you about this wonderful program. And you start telling them all about it. You can't rave about it enough. And then comes the question that makes it all meaningless.

"How much money have YOU made with this program?"

Do you see where this is going?

Sure, you can lie. But trust me, that lie will come back to haunt you in more ways than you can imagine. Or, you can tell the truth.

What do you think is going to happen when you tell this person that you haven't made a DIME?

Without credibility you are NOWHERE.

So, the $64,000 question is, how do you get credibility? How do you show people that you ARE a successful person online when you haven't made a buck?

The answer is simple, but you're not going to like it.

You're going to have to go out and make a buck.

If this sounds like a catch-22, it's not. There are ways out there to make money without having to promote a product or recruit. You just have to find them. My book has a number of ways to get that credibility so that you can show people that you HAVE made money online.

Fortunately, my Honest Income Program ebook, which you can find in my signature, WILL give you ways where you can get credibility and be able to easily promote your business with some degree of success.

The point is, there ARE ways to make money online even if you don't get my book. Just do a search engine search for online jobs or something like that. Some jobs pay okay, some not so great. You're not going to find anything that's knock 'em out of the ball park.

But, before you can go out hawking your "biz-of-the-week" you will have needed to earn at least a few hundred to a few thousand dollars before you're going to have ANY chance to get people to believe you.

If you think I am kidding, try getting people to sign up to your program when you haven't made a cent online. You may get lucky in one out of a thousand responses, but by the time you get your next sign up, the guy you just recruited will be gone because he too didn't make a cent and got fed up.

I hope everyone will take the issue of credibility seriously. I had no success online at all until I got it.

Trust me, it is the number ONE thing we all need.
