If I’m An Internet Marketing Guru… So Are You!


I’ve noticed that there’s a trend going among upcoming marketers who are looking forward to make their first big break in the how to make money online niche.

And very often, this trend leads many marketers who are just starting out, into a downward spiral…. until they give up altogether.

Seriously, there are almost as many people giving up on internet marketing everyday, as there are people who are eager to do this business.

Guru Picture

And I found out that one of the main reasons why people get very discouraged from doing this business is that they actually believed that the reason why they’re not making any money online is because they are not “Gurus”.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a student came up to me and asked me if it’s true that it was tough to make money in internet marketing and that it’s better for her to quit because she’ll lose out to the harsh competition by so-called internet marketing gurus…

And she revealed that it was a friend of hers who claimed to have a few years of internet marketing experience who told her that.

And no matter what happens, they’ll still be lagging far behind from those popularly known “Internet Gurus” who have started out many years ago.

Seriously, I was kinda mad when I heard this.

Because nothing can be further from the truth than this.

And I can prove to you that you can even make tons of money on the internet right away without even being a guru…

You see, in January 2009… I decided to take a direction away from the usual internet marketing jazz and try something new all together.

I decided to venture into 2 different niche that I didn’t know a lot about. But the market is huge.

You might have probably guessed… I went into the Forex niche and the Adult niche (where I teach men how to give killer orgasms to women)

(*Time out*… I’m not trying to blow my own horn… In fact, I don’t think I know enough to be branded as a sex guru or any of that sorts and this has nothing to do with porn)

And as for the Forex… I can’t even differentiate between chart A and chart B.

But that didn’t stop me from creating a hyper responsive list of buyers… who would actually queue to get my forex course!

It sounds pretty ridiculous… I’m sure. But I need to clear the air and set the records straight.

If being a Guru means having a huge list and having a stable internet income.

Then, let me tell you… It’s darn easy to be one.

You just have to appear as if you’re are always around… which basically means having a strong web presence.

The secret to this is really simple. All you ever need to do, is to deliver good content to your subscribers and do it
consistently. That’s it!

Sounds like a no brainer ain’t it? It is…

Just put yourself in the shoes of a customer for a moment. What would you normally do before you buy an ebook or video course that you fancy, online?

Buy it right away with no questions asked? Maybe a couple of people would… but just a couple.

What about the rest of the people? Skeptics perhaps?

They probably would search for reviews to see if anyone who bought the product has any feedbacks.

And if they can’t find any, they’ll probably still stick around to see if you provide any more useful information, which they can use without having to risk losing their money if they were to buy right away.

So what happens when you give more valuable free information than what is expected of you?

Your customers will probably think, if your free stuff is already that fantastic… I can’t imagine how great will the product would be!

That’s exactly the kind of emotions that you want your customers to have when they visit your website.

So they’ll feel good about buying your product. It’s that simple.

Seriously, you don’t need to have the approval of others to earn the kind of money that you always dream of.

All you need to do is to provide as much valuable and useful information as possible. And your customers will start looking up to you.

For starters, I would recommend you to start on article marketing… and blog marketing.

But wait, it don’t make sense… how could you sell something that you have no idea?

Simple… I found a team of people who did and I outsourced all the writing to them.

In case you don’t know, you can easily get people to write articles or blogpost for you for just a small fee.

Just go to outsourcing websites like Getafreelancer, Elance or Odesk… and you can take your pick.

So effectively, It didn’t take me an ounce of effort to start an online business nor should I ever be called a guru…

So, the next time when you hear someone complains about not being able to make money on the internet because he or she is not a guru… You probably laugh to yourself… because that would mean 1 less competition.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I’ll talk to you soon,

    Hiya Jaz.

    Another way to ‘view’ things, is to COPY what the ‘gurus’ are doing. It kinda fast tracks the process. If it is working for them, there is no reason why it wouldn’t work for others.

    I have been lucky enough to find the ‘fast track.’ I WON a competition to secure the Turbo Farewell package from John Delavera for FREE, and I will be using everything to help as many others as I can. More details at http://mystar-eopportunity.com if anyone is interested in tagging onto my shirt tails. *smiles*

    GURU … SCHMOORU … just patience and hard work is all it takes.

    All the best.

    Hey Jaz:

    Great post & solid points raised here for people to consider & work into their own internet business plans.

    Zig Ziglar said it best: ‘You can have anything you want in life if you just help enough other people get what they want.’


  4. Jaz Lai says:

    John, you are absolutely right. Modeling after someone is definitely one of the fastest way to succeed.

    Turbo farewell is gigantic, make it work for you.

    JB, Great point by Zig Ziglar.

  5. Hey Jaz, after 3 months working my ass on adsense – using a guru’s whiz bang script that supposedly made him $2 million bucks, – I only make $10 a month *%&%

    So I switched to selling healthcare medical devices targeted at baby boomers. I am doing better now.

    My income is coming back up and I am looking to make 6 figures by years end. I know I can do this because my friend’s 24-year old daughter just made $182,640 last year!

    I am looking for internet savy marketers to kick ass and this is an international opportunity you cannot miss – you do not have to be in the U.S. and you can sell to anyone around the world.

    If you have any size of a list you can do this business. You know why? Another top leader in this business (made over $1M last year) does not even know how to use email and he is still using a Motorola Razor for a cellphone – for crying out loud…

    No outsourcing. No baby sitting.

    Is this fair or what?


  6. Brian Baulch says:

    Hey Jaz, just a little off topic, just to give another example for future readers and newbies to online marketing world, a prime example the market is not flooded in a niche just because there are so called gurus in it are McDonalds in the offline world they claim a so called guru status in the hamburger niche, but every where at least l look here in Australia there are little local hamburger shops even in close range of Mcdonalds and these local hamburger shop are still able to compete well against McDonalds, so l think Guru Status can be proven here as not needed in a so called flooded niche market

    Hi Jaz,

    I have been trying to get a refund for “Inbox Cash Blueprint” now for over 2 months, but I don’t get any replies to my “ticket” any more Please honour your “free trial” promise and refund my payment.



  8. Jaz Lai says:

    David, can you send an email to askjazlai@gmail.com.
    I will get my guy to look out for your email.

    Sorry that you are facing this issue.
    I will get it sort out for you.

  9. mtsyarbaini says:

    Yes your are right, successfull not depend on the gurus, but much more to your self. One thing I would ask you, did your blog host to the paid one, merely to get money on line?

    To your success Jaz,

  10. Seems to me everyone is talking about making big money online and yet i havn’t seen real documented proof. I have a blog up with alexa ranking dropping daily down to 550,000 and blooging daily, article submissions, rss feeds, SEO blog commenting, backlinking, text ads etc etc the whole deal..and yet know one has opted into my blog account. Im starting to beleive the only way to make money online is from working an offline business and marketing it that way with real products, like i have done with our photography business. Sometimes i feel we are way better off without the internet so we can all have much better lives!! That’s my 2 cents worth..

  11. Beage says:

    That last point is so true, you hit the nail right on the head. Less competition for us newbies that are not newbies anymore, lol

  12. david tay says:

    hi jaz,
    Just attended your preview last Sat. in Eastin Hotel,KL. Your presentation are simple and easy to understand.Though i’m not so sure if the workshop in June will help me in better future or not,(financially & life),i signed up for the coming workshop.Hoping for a better future!
    Happy trip to Bali!!

  13. Hi there, just doing some research for my Motorola website. Truly more information than you can imagine on the web. Not what I was looking for, but good site. Take care.

  14. What an excellent description! No idea how you wrote this post..it’d take me weeks. Well worth it though, I’d suspect. Have you considered selling banners on your blog?

  15. Jaz says:

    Prestashop, not at the moment thou. But I will definitely sell banner on my blog in the near future.
