Don’t Take it For Granted
You probably know all marketers are liars and every ebook promises that you’ll make thousands a day or millions in a few months. Also most people who have a hypothesis try to convince the others they are right. Unfortunately many people fall for all these and they take everything for granted. That’s why “get rich quick” ebooks get sold and why people screw it day by day.
I have done this mistakes in the past too and they have affected me a lot, but now I triple check everything and test any assumption to make sure it’s true.
A few months ago a friend contacted me and said “Hey I bought an Adsense ebook that had to teach me how to earn about $200 daily and I only managed to earn $2 in 1 month.” Of course he didn’t learn anything from that ebook and only offered him a few free HTML templates, though him how to place his Adsense ads. I’m not saying there aren’t quality ebooks out there that are worth buying and reading, but you need to be careful what you pay for and of course you won’t get rich just by reading an ebook.
Also you can find a lot of people that offer surefire techniques of getting #1 on Google for any keyword and many other techniques like this. And of course they guarantee you it works, they say it has worked for them with hundreds of keywords and so on. And guess what ? A lot of naive people fall for this stuff and take it for granted.
I know it takes time to verify everything and even more time to test and research the advices you read, but at least you’ll know what you’re doing and not just rely on what others say.
