Another issue of Five on Friday, served up hot and fresh. Here are five of my favorite blog posts from the last week or so.
“The bar for success is too low in our industry” – by Jason Fried
This post was written about the tech industry, but could have just as easily been written about Internet marketing. Jason takes the tech industry to task for holding up unprofitable businesses as a model of success. Highly recommended reading.
Affiliate Caught in the Act! – by Ricky Breslin
In this video, Ricky exposes some of the shady affiliate tactics that are becoming more and more common in every industry. Raises an important question: “How far is too far in the pursuit for profits?”
Supplement Millions Video – by Doberman Dan
Another video! This one’s a bit longer; 38 minutes. Well worth watching though, especially when you consider it’s a recording of Doberman Dan’s presentation at a PAID seminar. In spite of the title, this video is actually less about selling supplements than it is about the value of direct mail.
Do One Thing. Do It Well. – by Jonathan Leger
Here’s a good reminder to stick with the basics… and focus. Jonathan actually wrote this post after reading a thread on Warrior Forum. The thread was so long, he decided to summarize what he got out of it. Good quick reading.
Internet Marketing Propaganda Is Going to Cost You – by Terry Dean
What’s keeping you from building a successful online business? Here Terry shares 5 Internet marketing lies that can hold you back if you believe them. (If you like Terry’s information, you should check out the Terry Dean newsletter.)
Have a great weekend!
