Selling knowledge, that is so easy to obtain it's almost ludicrous, should be a felony.
I have recently been introduced to an atrocity of epic proportions. I have to give credit where credit is due so I offer you this link to the Salty Droid's post titled The Internet Marketing Syndicate
That atrocity is the selling of information about internet marketing, website marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing, Google Ad-words marketing, Facebook Ads marketing, etc. etc. etc.
The Salty Droid's post is spectacular as it outlines what these "mega-marketers" are doing as a group, but what it does not go into is what the hell it is they are selling. Here is the answer:
Well not exactly nothing. They are selling packages of information that you, all by yourself, can go research in about a week, without spending a dime. Nothing that they sell is new, it's all just repackaged information freely available all over the internet in blogs, forums, and social networks. It's all free, or you can pay $2000.00 for it from one of these "internet-marketing-gurus"
So I have decided to write an exhaustive set of articles relating to all of these subjects, absolutely FREE to you, my lovely reader.
So why can I write these articles, and why should you listen to me a relative nobody compared to "the syndicate"? Because unlike these people, I have actually been putting into practice, all by my little self, all of the things I am gong to post about. That's right. I actually do the stuff I am going to tell you about, for myself and my clients every single day, with success.
I will not be holding back either. There are no 'secrets' held by any one person or syndicate that you can't learn from a 30 minute online search and read. Anybody who tells you otherwise is completely full of it. The secret of Google's algorithm is the only internet marketing secret and I can assure you no one knows that secret except Google, and if you figure it out today Google will change it tomorrow, so throw that bit of useless desire out the window right now.
So this is the first post, and it's only purpose is to announce my intention to write the actual 'Everything you ever needed to know about internet marketing - FREE' series which I will do in short order.
I suggest you register for my newsletter (bottom right of this page) or post a comment on this blog somewhere, or subscribe to my RSS feed if you care about this information.
Chances are you are already registered for one of 'The Syndicates' shove some shit down your throat marketing nonsense newsletters where they will try to sell you some package of trudged over garbage. So why not register for mine where at the very least you will get notification that I have posted something else new and completely free, and at the very worst you will get some post about fixing the plumbing in my house (yes I am writing this post it was a nightmare).
