Enough of the lies and misleading advertisements

This is a topic that I have talked to many people about, and I have also blogged about it on numerous occasions. It is about the enormous amount of lies and misleading advertisements on the internet regarding business opportunities. It has really reached enormous proportions, and just seems to get bigger and bigger. It is seriously impacting the whole industry. Next maybe to politics, internet marketing or business opportunities on the internet has a great distrust among the public. The public really does not trust business opportunities and generally regards everything on the internet to be a “pyramid scheme”. This is an issue, as network marketers that we have to address, because it is having an enormous impact on the industry. There has to be a way to way to put an end to the lies and the misleading advertisements on the internet. The public is fed up with misleading advertisements that offers everything under the sky, and the claims are simply ridiculous, but it works. Many people join the business opportunities that promise a fortune with little work and effort. It is wrong and immoral because it is praying to the weak, it is praying on people’s circumstances, the fact that millions of people in the US are out of work and millions more need to find other ways to make income in order to survive. They are tons and tons of programs out there, so the public is utterly confused trying to find which programs is legitimate and which is not. As internet marketers, we have a responsibility to the public, a responsibility to the industry. First and foremost, each and every one of us has to make sure we investigate a program before we sign on to it. Because, when we don’t, we are contributing to the spread of lies and misleading advertisements that these programs perpetrate. We are therefore just as guilty as the creators of such programs, who honestly do not care for the public. There are many internet marketers, now, that are looking to create programs and flimsy business opportunities simply to make money. They are not interested at all about providing a good service or product that will benefit society. They are strictly interested in making a fortune and then get out. Meanwhile the people that got suckered into getting in these programs are led astray, believing still that this program is legitimate, when it is not. The influx of new opportunities on a monthly basis is astounding. Yet, most of these business opportunities don’t last longer than 8 to 12 months. The industry as a whole is stretched thin; this is a big part of the reason why 97% of people in internet marketing don’t make money. I am all for a free market system, but a lot of internet marketers don’t play fair. Lying to people about a program is certainly not what I consider to be fair competition. As a result, there are millions of people that are simply disillusioned and disgusted with network marketing due to the lies and misleading advertisements that spreads across the internet. It is time that, we, as internet marketers, stand up against misleading advertisements. It is time we start to isolate business opportunities that are not legitimate, and that grossly exaggerates their benefits. I really believe we need an industry watchdog, who will seek to protect the public from misleading advertisements and the unscrupulous internet marketers out there that spread lies and mislead the public. We need something like the Better Business Bureau which systematically screens out the bad programs and the bad businesses in order to protect the public. This will have a tremendous impact because the market forces will eventually drive a lot of the bad apples out of business. And it will preserve the principle of Free Market.
