When My Products Don’t Work

Here’s the text of an email I received during my recent promotion of the Internet Lifestyle System.

“I’ve gotten your emails for years…if you’re sure this will work will you send it to me on credit…and if you will, I will send you the first $1,000 I make…I promise.”

Normally I send back a quick response to any email I receive from a subscriber. I LOVE getting feedback!

I ignored this one because my response would have simply been “It won’t work for you.”

I’ll tell you how I knew it wouldn’t work for him in just a few moments.

A day or two later I got another message: “if you don’t get back to me, I will remove you from my mail…I hope you respond…”

That was a good idea, so I hit the unsubscribe link for him.

I’ve heard multiple variations of this email hundreds of times over the years.

Sometimes they ask for free coaching. Other times it’s free products.

If I’m willing to ‘invest’ in them to prove my methods work, they’ll pay me some extra amount in the future…or sometimes they even say they’ll give me a testimonial.

Perhaps they think I’ll respond with amazement they’re offering me such an incredible deal.

First of all, I already have proof from clients these methods work in dozens of different markets.

And second, why would I invest in them if they’re not even willing to invest in themselves?

That doesn’t make any sense.

The Internet isn’t the land of magical unicorns and rainbows.

There is no product you can buy that will instantly propel you to success without any effort on your part.

It just doesn’t work like that. I’m not going to grab someone and drag them kicking and screaming into a successful business while they’re fighting me all the way.

So how did I know the course wouldn’t work for him?

He asked “If I was sure it would work for him.”

I was the one who had to have confidence. And the course was going to be the one doing all the work.

Without any investment on his part, I doubt he would even watch the course! Not to mention use it.

And if he did use it (that’s a big IF), he’d quit the moment something didn’t go perfectly according to plan.

I don’t know if ANYTHING has ever gone perfectly according to plan online. You will exercise your problem solving skills at times, because Murphy’s Law seems to love technology.

None of my courses do all the work for you.

They’re training tools. They guide you. They give you a successful path that thousands of others have followed. I can give you the map and point the way for you.

But you’re the one who has to walk that path.

No one is going to pick you up and carry you.

If you’re serious about gaining Freedom and Control over your life, the Internet Lifestyle Retirement System can show you the path. It will give you my system. It can shortcut your path to success.

But it isn’t for everyone. It’s only for those who are willing to put in the effort…and for those who are willing to invest in themselves first.

If you’re willing to do that…then it will guide you step-by-step toward the Internet Lifestyle Freedom you’re looking for.
