What a revelation!

When it comes to Internet marketing,repparttar supply of Gurus givesrepparttar 117612 impression of being endless.

Every day I read of several new Gurus who have recently startledrepparttar 117613 Internet community by unearthingrepparttar 117614 'real' secrets of marketing success.

Thankfully, these Gurus are graciously releasing their deep dark secrets of Internet prowess, even though it may be for a limited time only, and at a compensation said to be ridiculously low for a Guru of their obvious stature.

The Internet is amazing, even Gurus mark down their wisdom!

For awhile, I feared that once these 'secrets' were released our favorite Guru would quickly pack up and take their meditation elsewhere.

But not to worry, as new hidden secrets of Internet marketing are needed, more and more Gurus appear to permeate repparttar 117615 Web thus eliminating any major concern of a shortage.

I often ponder, can this abundance of Gurus last, is there a University somewhere that grinds them out, a sort of Guru U!

Perhaps, we ought to just count blessings and gleam as much as we can from these modern day wonders ofrepparttar 117616 cosmos.

After all, shouldn't we be content that there are helpful Gurus everywhere onrepparttar 117617 Internet, with or without a toga.

They seem to be everywhere these days. In fact, while shaving this morning, I could swear I spotted a Guru in my own bathroom mirror!

Or maybe you're not promoting a pyramid scheme. Maybe you're promoting a legitimate network marketing program. I'm all in favor of network marketing as a business model. I'm involved in one myself. But I don't go telling people they can get rich overnight just by slapping up a website and spending a couple of hours a week sending email. I tell people it takes a five year commitment, and long, hard hours. Think that loses me sign-ups? You bet.

But I don't want get rich quick types in my organization. Nor do I want those who are not prepared to invest any time or money in their businesses. This is NOT a free ride. There ARE no free rides and I don't want passengers. I want drivers. I want people who are prepared to invest in their businesses and their futures. Because that's what it takes to make a success of any business. An investment of time, an investment of money and an investment of directed effort.

Or maybe you're not promoting a network marketing program OR a pyramid scheme. Maybe you're promoting a great new book you've written (or someone else has written) about how to generate bucketloads of cash running an Internet business. Have YOU generated bucketloads of cash from this book? Then don't sell othersrepparttar hope that they can either.

You may think those people who spent hundreds of millions of dollars on a gizmo that was never going to work got what they deserved by looking for a free ride. And maybe they did. I don't have any sympathy for them. But that doesn't letrepparttar 117611 companies who conned them offrepparttar 117612 hook. They exploited weakness in others for their own pecuniary gain and they did it dishonestly.

The FTC will make them pay for their deceptive and misleading advertising. And it can dorepparttar 117613 same to you, too.
